On any non-Nintendo system, we take it for granted when downloadable patches erase embarrassing bugs. But the Big N has been slow to creep out of the stone age and fix its mistakes, which is why we were overjoyed to hear that Nintendo would be patching a cheap exploit that ruins online play in Mario Kart 7.
As far as introductions go, Diablo III had a rougher time than we did in our atomic wedgie-filled first day of high school. Blizzard’s PC lootfest came out Tuesday, cursed with overloaded servers and a bug that ended the games of some players lucky enough to actually play the game.
A little friendly rivalry keeps things spicy, but a seething, bitter grudge makes for real entertainment. GameFly steps things up a few notches in its game-trading grudge match with GameStop with a new commercial. Actors thrash an unnamed, extremely GameStop-like retail store, enraged over the fact that the clerk is only offering them $9 for their used game.
Back in March, Konami planned on hitting us with a three-hit Silent Hill combo. But then things didn’t go quite according to plan, with the new release Silent Hill: Downpour and the remake anthology Silent Hill HD Collection both garnering mediocre reviews and likely disappointing sales.
Just as dude who wants to keep his girlfriend happy but doesn’t want to get married will propose without setting a date, game publishers sometimes keep rabid fans at bay by giving games vague release dates like “summer” or “August.”
We haven’t heard much from the Virtua Fighter series in the past half decade. After the last game in the series, Virtua Fighter 5, came out in 2007 we weren’t sure we’d ever see a sixth entry. Now word has hit that Sega’s fighter series will see new life, but in downloadable form and it’s not exactly Virtua Fighter 6, but just another Virtua Fighter 5.
At this point it should come as no surprise that any fantasy franchise is getting Lego-fied. After Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean have taken plastic brick form, it was only a matter of time until The Lord of the Rings followed suit.
Leave it to Ferrari to make the hybrid car phenomenon seem more panties-dropper than tree-hugger. The Enzo, which is totally into pulling a three-way with gas and electric power, always seemed like one of those concept cars that was more of an oddball pet project of some self-indulgent engineer than something that would ever pull up next to us on the road.
