June 21, 2011 by

Bejeweled 3

There’s no doubt that PopCap sells their games like gold and not the least of which are the Bejeweled games. As simple as they are, they can also be very addicting to both casual and core gamers. Well, PopCap has announced that they are bringing Bejeweled 3 to top consoles in five versions according to the press release.

It was first released back in December and is already out for PC and Mac, but the third game will arrive simultaneously on Xbox 360, Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation 3, Playstation Network, and the Nintendo DS some time later this year in the fourth quarter across North America and Europe.

“Critics agree that Bejeweled 3 raised the standard for match-3 games to new heights,” said Ed Allard, studio head at PopCap games. “This holiday, we’re bringing that experience to Playstation 3, PSN, Xbox 360, Xbox Live, and Nintendo DS gamers with adaptations that look great and play even better on each platform.”

Retro Platform Adventure ‘La Mulana’ Hits WiiWare Japan

June 21, 2011 by


The retro-style platformer adventure game La Mulana has been released on WiiWare in Japan today. For those of you who don’t know, La Mulana was a game originally released for Windows PCs in 2005 that tried to emulate the graphical style of old MSX games. You took control of a whip-wielding archeologist, exploring caves, fighting enemies and seeking items in the vein of Metroid or Castlevania. While the WiiWare re-release ditches the low resolution and 16-bit color palette typical for old MSX games in favor of shiny new graphics, the gameplay is to stay intact, including the “NES-hard” difficulty. While no US release date has been confirmed as of yet, chances are good that Nintendo will bring this little retro gem overseas. I for one can’t wait.

Square Enix Hosts a Deus Ex Art Exhibit

June 20, 2011 by

Deus Ex

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is probably one of the most anticipated games of this year. Many of us have been eagerly awaiting the return of the series and New York City has something on the way to promote the game.

Square Enix has announced that they are having a number of known artists display their original Deus Ex artwork at an exhibition starting July 28. The two week exhibit is a lead-up to the game’s eventual August 23 launch. The line up includes 3rassiere, Estevan Oriol, Eyeone, Jeremy Fish, Jorge Alderete, N8 Van Dyke, Rico Deniro, Robert Abeyta Jr., and Sam Flores. I don’t know who any of those people are, but they are lending their talents to create the displayed art.

The artists are tasked with creating a poster style image based on the story of Human Revolution. Square Enix states that they will explore both pro and anti-human augmentation in their work. The art director is going to be “transforming the overall gallery space to create an experience that aptly depicts what’s in the game.”

Proceeds pulled in from the sale of the artwork will be used to further education in the arts.

Trailer – Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Gamplay

June 20, 2011 by


Peace Walker was the last game that I put into my PSP that I can remember enjoying. I’ve had to review a few titles since then, but none had the same lasting appeal. Now that Konami announced that the game will be getting an HD facelift and coming to the PlayStation 3 I couldn’t be happier. No more cramped hands from holding the controller for hours on end as I build my Metal Gear, train troops, and take my one eyed friend on new adventures.

Now you can check out some gameplay in HD, courtesy of Konami. I cannot wait to play this again on a controller that doesn’t make my hands hurt from cradling my Snake.


The trailer can be seen after the jump.
