Metroid Prime Trilogy

I still haven't bought MP3C, though I did rent it, and I haven't played Echoes at all and this is why.

DS Fanboy Gets Their Stylus-on Mushroom Men: Rise Of The Fungi


We told you about Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars for Wii. Now it's time for DS to get some exposure with Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi. Featuring an entirely different story line in the Mushroom Men universe, Rise of the Fungi tells you about the early stages of sentience for the races of Mushrooms and spiders and beetles and hornets (oh my!). They are just beginning to seperate into the 4 Mushroom Nations that will be battling it out in The Spore Wars. You're a member of the Bolete Tribe, first facing the challenge of how to survive in a hostile enviornment, and then facing foreign Mushroom Men that aren't as peaceful as you'd hoped.

DS Fanboy got their hands on Rise of the Fungi, so we're going to give you some quotes:

The first level's weapon: the Last Line of Defense, which is a fishhook, a tiny metal rod, and a crankshaft stuck together. That enabled me to fight the Mosquito General somewhat successfully, and then it mysteriously disappeared. Following my defeat of the General, I was sent back through the level to pick up Bits of Food for my mushroom tribe, then onto the next level. To reach the entrance, I had to float down on a leaf parachute. To build this, I had to solve a puzzle (identified by a puzzle icon in the level) in which I arranged a picture of the item out of fragments.

all [enemies] have weaknesses and resistances to certain types of weapons and attacks. When you accost one of these enemies, the non-gameplay screen changes to information about your enemy's HP and attributes. Not listed in the mosquitoes' info: they're huge jerks and it can be hard to hit them with a stick.

Also true in real life JC. The two screens are the main action screen, and the other which is enemy info when you're fighting and inventory when you're not. When you need to swap inventory items, you can quickly hit an icon on the action screen and pull up your inventory for swapping items.

Read the whole thing at DS Fanboy, and catch the full gallery with two vids after the break.

Wii Wish: Mirror's Edge


The Wii's library has taken extraordinary leaps and bounds since last year, especially in the 3rd party category. But that shouldn't keep us from hoping for more. There are some great games out there that Wii hasn't gotten a shot at yet, and Wii Wish is where WiiHD (and you) can document those great titles.

Today's featured title is Mirror's Edge. A First Person Action Adventure title, Mirror's Edge has a highly versatile gameplay model that allows you navigate the finer gradations of your environment with more freedom than most games. As we've talked about before, more photo-realism begs for more freedom of movement—and Mirror's Edge seems poised to deliver just that.

You are Faith, a loving sister looking to secure your sibling's freedom from an evil regime. Right now you're acting as a message runner for the criminal element, since Big Brother watches all conventional communications. In the course of playing (running), you'll be subjected to a game interface that really tries to immerse you in your environment, not just with effects and lighting, but with visual feedback of your actions. You'll see your arms and legs pumping, hear your lungs laboring and you'll see realistic recoil when you make a landing.

In fact, seeing this game is believing (unless you're prone to motion-sickness). Hit the break for some video, tell us what you think, and then describe the game you wish were coming to Wii. Don't hold back either, swing for the fences.

Mushroom Men (Wii)


It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a meteor with strange properties about to land in the middle of a jungle and give rise to sentient mushrooms and cacti and aggressive and violent insects in the area of its impact! *pause for breath*

So begins the saga of Mushroom Men, who, after their rise to sentience, quickly divide into 4 different nations and, as nations are wont to do, they go to war. There are 4 Mushroom Nations. You are one of the Bolete, one of two non-poisonous Mushroom Nations. The two poisonous nations are looking to wipe out all other Mushroom Tribes so they can be the only Mushroom Men.

Your part in this game will be to guide Pax, one such sentient mushroom, along the way to solve the mystery of the origins of the Mushroom Men, while hopefully stopping a war, bringing glory to your nation (the Bolete) and saving the entire world of Mushroom Men from self-destruction. Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars is a 3rd person action adventure title for Wii due out this November.

The game has a very appealing look and sound, so be sure to check out game screens and video after the break.
