Welcome gaming bastards to another edition of G.R.O.W. This is NerdBastards weekly video game release list where we give y’all a heads up on what was released for the consoles and PC (and sometimes the MAC). We also cover downloadable titles as well.
Once again, nothing new will be showing up at retail stores but over on the downloadable side, this week doesn’t disappoint as PC and MAC gamers will be able to get their hands on the first episode of Telltale Game’s episodic Back to the Future: The Game. Wii owners have Frobot (a robot with an afro) to check out while 360 users have A World with Keflings, in which you play as your avatar.
The PS3 got quite the releases on the downloadable side as they will have the release of the NEOGEO Station to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NEOGEO console. The NEOGEO station will let gamers once again play (and pay again) some kick ass NEOGEO games SNK Playmore has released. Hell, they’re even releasing a sweet usb controller just for the ocassion (well, over in Japan anyways).
While there are ten games set to release for the PS3 version of these games (which will cost y’all $8.99 per title), the top three picks are: Metal Slug, The King of Fighters ’94, and Baseball Stars Professional (yes, a sports game is being recommended). Some of the titles will be also available for the PSP at launch and will cost $6.99 each.
So, you know how Mega Man has the nick name Blue Bomber. So if one his power ups turn him brown, would he then be the Brown Bomber and thus be the $#!*… okay, I’ll stop. Capcom is once again cashing on Mega Man as the sequel to the first retro revival of Mega Man 9 (2008) has come out for the WiiWare and Playstation Network, and later this month X-Box Live Arcade, has come out this month. Mega Man 10, just like MM9, once again has gamers playing the classic 2D game play and the 8-bit graphics it was known for. 9 was a fun game but damn was that game. Check after the break for the awesome commercial Capcom released for the game and also a review of Mega Man 10. (more…)
Nintendo held a huge new conference today, known as the Nintendo Media Summit, and once again, your Sony Trophy Whore gamer is here to give you guys the convenience to read it all in one post. Check after the jump to see what new Wii and DS/DSi stuff is coming for the gamers in the next couple months. (more…)
Sonic, you have gone through many changes. Ever since the Dreamcast Era, you pretty much had your friends help you out on your Adventures and even have different hedgehogs to show up to share the spot light. But now, that is no more. It as if you have gone through rehab and realize that its time to make that come back everyone has been waiting for. This morning, Sega has revealed that Project Needlemouse was indeed Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and it will be Sonic return to his fast-pace old school game style with the 3D graphics. Best of all, there will be no other characters, its just the good old Sonic vs. Dr. Robotnik adventure and I wouldn’t have it no other way. The game will be release this summer and will be available for the X-Box Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and WiiWare as Episodic Downloads. Price has not been announced as well but it doesn’t matter, I know I’ll be downloading this no matter the price as I want Sonic to finally get his due.
