Leaks, they happen all the time. Some are worse than others and if this one is true, it’s showing a pretty large leak that Nintendo will not be happy about. It would appear, that there’s the possibility of a redesigned Wii U controller and LEGO developer, TT Games revealed it on Twitter… naturally.
Carmageddon, it’s a legendary series of games and one that I only know for a single title – Carmageddon 64. Which is arguably one of the poorest games on the Nintendo 64. Whilst the original title on the PC may have been passable – I can’t comment, the port was brought to us by the same people who made Superman 64. THe creator will shortly be talking about the Carmageddon experience and his attempts to get community funding for a new game in Brighton.
The Mother series, or known as Earthbound in the West, is a series that has an almost fanatical following. But unlike many fanatical followers, the people behind the communities that make Earthbound online such a joy to be are talented, articulate and interesting people.

THQ are a company that aren’t afraid to venture into the unknown mist and have a reach around. Sometimes upon retraction their arm is covered in green slimey goo, such as their TV film venture with Sci-Fi and othertimes they come back with a bouquet of flowers.

However, the global success of the company’s games haven’t helped their finances unfortunately and they’ve had to cancel two games.
It’s not easy “out there”, Greece failing, half of Europe falling apart and the world money market just not really existing anymore. Almost everyone is feeling some sort of pain and game developers and publishers are no different than the rest of us. This is one of the reasons why THQ have had to delay and drop games.
The Nintendo DS is still huge in Japan, in fact, it’s still pretty huge everywhere and as such companies are still interested in developing for it. This is a bit of a strange development, but a car manufacturer have managed to make a little addon that makes the Nintendo DS work with the car’s in built navigation system.
Once upon a time he was the most recognised character in the world, he had theme parks created for him and in the 90s had some of the best games on the Megadrive made by him. These days, Mickey Mouse has been forgotten by all these new fangled cartoons but this hasn’t stopped Disney from creating a sequel to Epic Mickey, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two and a behind the scenes trailer has been released.
