Hey everybody – Another week down. I plan a mid week update with the footage of team Aboot Games getting killed at the January CGP.
Magical Starsign – DS –
- Overly Cute RPG
- Group of magic students out to save their teacher
- Each stundet has elemental power
- Standard RPG – with few choices
- Very linear stroy – only one place to go next
- Puzzle are mainly choosing the correct element for the obstacle
- Graphics are colorful – each planet you visit having an elemental theme
- Audio is SNES quality
- Video clips are present
- Good time killer but not for seasoned gamers
Big Brain Academy – DS
- Not really a game, technically speaking
- A bunch of mini puzzles that rate the mass of your brain and then offers some funny quips about you.
- You can either practice the mini games at different difficulty levels in 1 of the 5 different categories or you can choose to take an overall evaluation.
Madden 2007 – Wii
- Full featured version of the game.
- Graphics look good although they could be nicer…
- Sound is great… it’s Madden.
- The control is where it’s at… everything is done in the Wii way.
- It’s difficult to get learn but it’s fun and there are tutorials throughout.
- The initial tutorial is incredibly well done and you get points.
- The mini games are really fun and again the help you practice.
- Best in game moment… I was defending, the ball was thrown at the receiver, I panicked and waved my arms my player swated the ball out of the air!
Hitman Blood Money – PS2 –
- 3rd person action / stealth game
- Play as a contract killer taking out assignments
- each levelis open in how you go about your assignment
- graphically as good as any in the genre
- I still perfer Splinter Cell (mainly because online)
Retro Gaming Moment
Download of the week
- Released originally in 1999 for PC and PS1
- Eidos gave out the source under GNU license
- An RTS that is pretty average
- Runs is a smallish window on my system
