Call of Duty: World At War is the latest game in the first-person war series and the 5th game in the franchise. For this title the setting was brought back to World War II after the huge success of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare which was set in modern times. The game recieved great reviews across the board.

NASCAR Kart Racing announced for Wii by EA


NASCAR Kart Racing Screenshot

Electronic Arts has revealed NASCAR Kart Racing exclusively for Wii. Which, correct me if I’m wrong, is EA’s first entry in the “kart-racing” genre that was started by Mario Kart and joined by nearly every other mascot character in existence, from Crash Bandicoot to Sonic to LEGO to Bomberman to Konami characters. I’m surprised it took them so long!

NASCAR Kart Racing has been designed from the ground up for Wii and will allow players to “grab the steering wheel as a famed NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver and speed through treacherous landscapes, wind around rocky cliffs, jump rivers and dodge falling boulders.”

Multiplayer offers up to four-player head-to-head play via split-screen and lots of licensed, named drivers in addition to original characters created just for the game.

Real NASCAR drivers include: Jeff Burton, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Matt Kenseth, Elliott Sadler, Tony Stewart.

New EA characters include: Billy Backfire, Bobby Backfire, Kelly Kates, Linda Leadbetter, Maurice L’Eclair, “Shakes” McDaniel, “Thriller” Tadwell, Monica Torres, Luke Trigger, Terri Windsome.

Like all cart racers, you can collect power-ups as you race along the tracks either solo or with a teammate. Power-Ups include: Boomstick, Gas Can, Oil Slick, Bottle Rocket, Shockwave, Free Pass, Yellow Flag, Ad. Nothing out of the ordinary there, as the power-ups do what you’d expect. The Bottle Rocket seeks someone out like a Red Shell from Mario Kart, the ad covers an opponents screen so they can’t see, the shockwave spins out drivers near you, the Yellow Flag gives you a speed boost to the front of the pack, etc. No word yet on whether or not the game supports the “Wii Racing Wheel” but I’d imagine that it will.

NASCAR Kart Racing has a release date of February in the U.S. for the Wii. It does not yet have a release date for Europe.

Key Features of NASCAR Kart Racing include:

* Fun, Competitive Kart Racing For Everyone
Race as your favorite NASCAR driver and compete against friends and family with four-player split-screen action.
* Stay “In The Zone”
Fill your boost meter to trigger a speed burst or slingshot around the track with the help of your teammate in a race for the checkered flag.
* Power-Up To Make The Pass
Yellow-flag the competition, throw an oil slick, launch a rocket, and more as you work your way past the field.
* Set Your Sights On The Championship
The competition has taken control of all tracks – now it’s up to you and a teammate to beat each duo and take ‘em back.

Check out the trailer above to see the game in action. Looks pretty much like a standard cart racing game to me . . . does anyone else spot anything unique about this? Either way though, cart racers ARE fun and this game looks like it could be a fun, multiplayer racing game just like every cart racer is.

Dragon Quest X announced for Wii by series creator


Square-Enix and Nintendo announce Dragon Quest X for Wii
Dragon Quest X, the 10th entry in the extremely popular RPG series, has been revealed for Wii by series creator Yuji Horii at a Square Enix press conference. No other details were given on the game including a release date, price, or any details on gameplay, storyline or characters.

This is not a huge surprise considering that the latest game in the franchise, the yet-to-be-released Dragon Quest IX, is an exclusive to Nintendo’s DS handheld. So it would only seem natural that the company would graduate to Nintendo’s Wii system.

Journey of the Cursed King for PS2Since Dragon Quest X will be on the Wii, it will be the first current-gen entry in the franchise and the latest console release. Dragon Quest VIII was the previous console game in the series, and was released on the PS2 in 2005 in the U.S. and was the first title in the series to be released outside of Japan with the “Dragon Quest” name instead of “Dragon Warrior”, as it was previously called outside of Japan.

Square Enix also saw fit to reveal the Japanese release date for the DS Dragon Quest IX game at the press conference. Dragon Quest IX will be released in Japan on March 28th for 5,980 yen.

Nintendo sells 800,000 Wiis over Thanksgiving week


Nintendo WiiNintendo has announced that they have sold an incredible 800,000 Wii units during the Thanksgiving week holiday, from November 23rd to November 29th.

That is more than double the amount (of 350,000) sold during the same week last year, despite the economic troubles. In fact it’s so much that Nintendo nearly matched the entire November 2007 monthly sales figures with the sales of the Wii during Thanksgiving week 2008, an incredible achievement.

As of September 30th, the Wii has sold nearly 35 million units worldwide, making it easily the best-selling platform of the current console generation.

And the monthly outlook for November may be even rosier. Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter estimates that the Wii sold a whopping 1.4 million units during November (He also predicts record sales of the reduced-price Xbox 360 at 800,000 units and steadily advancing PS3 sales at 400,000 units). Overall Pachter predicts that console sales overall were up 17% during the month of November with handheld sales dropping 5%.

DS Ice Blue Game System with Brain Age BundleAs far as Nintendo’s DS handheld is concerned, sales were up 20% of last year for the week of Thanksgiving, but Nintendo did not provide exact figures. The uptick in sales comes despite the unveiling of the DSi, which is the third redesign in the DS system hardware that includes built-in cameras, a web-browser and the ability to download software via an online store. The DSi won’t be released until “well into 2009″ and has been selling briskly in Nintendo’s home country of Japan since it went on sale last month. Despite that, sales of the DS in the U.S. are still selling like hotcakes as is the Nintendo Wii, which is simply off the charts.

Mushroom Men: Spore Wars Art Documentaries – Bad guys, good guys, enemies and weapons

How to download the Wii Speak Channel to talk in Animal Crossing City Folk


Wii Speak Microphone for WiiOne of the coolest features of Animal Crossing: City Folk for Wii (the newest game in the Animal Crossing series) is the fact that the game supports Nintendo’s new microphone accessory, the Wii Speak, which allows for voice chat when playing City Folk online with friends.

The microphone can either be bought bundled with the game (at an American msrp of $70 or just the game for $50) or separately (just the microphone) for $30. And eventually other games should support voice chat while playing online, but right now it’s just City Folk.

City Folk with Wii Speak BundleWhen you buy the microphone, packed inside the box is a 16-digit “Wii Download Ticket” code that allows you to download the “Wii Speak Channel” to your Wii Channels menu. The channel allows you to simply chat with an unlimited amount of friends in one of four available chat rooms. Each user is represented by their Mii who will lip-synch what they are saying. In addition the Wii Speak Channel allows you to leave friends audio messages as well as attach audio clips to stored photos. You can also share photo slid shows and comment on them with the Wii Speak Channel.

Give a look at how the channel works and how to download it in this video.

We’ve included videos of each of today’s games for nostalgia’s sake or so you can see if it’s to your tastes.

This week’s new WiiWare games are:

Bruiser and Scratch WiiWare screenshot
Bruiser and Scratch (Steel Penny Games, Inc., 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points = $10): Bruiser and Scratch are stranded in a strange world with a dark secret. Their only hope in finding a path home is to unravel the mystery of this place, one oversized puzzle at a time. Along the way, they make new friends and meet up with old adversaries, each of whom plays a role in their journey. Bruiser and Scratch offers a number of tutorial levels to bring the player up to speed gradually. The story unfolds over 48 puzzles and six landscapes. And for players who can’t get enough, Challenge mode offers 75 additional puzzles that range from child’s play to mind-bogglingly difficult.

Hockey Allstar Shootout (Big Blue Bubble Inc., 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points = $5): Use the Wii Remote controller as a stick and take the shot as you compete in three exciting Hockey Skills Challenges. In Head 2 Head, it’s just you versus the best goalies in the world in a five-puck shootout. Race against the clock to post the most goals in the fastest time. The three difficulty levels will place you against three increasingly talented goalies, each donning the jersey of their home country. In two-player mode, each player will take a turn as shooter and as goalie, and the player who scores the most goals in five shots is the winner. In Sharp Shooter, you post a high score in one of three difficulty levels by breaking as many targets as you can. Each time a shot fails to break a target, an X will appear in the upper left corner. Three misses and the game is over. Power Shot has you take your best shot and watch the Shot-Speed Clock light up. You have three attempts to blast the fastest shot you can, and only the best speeds will grace the high score list.

This week’s new Virtual Console game is:

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Sega Master System, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points = $5): Play the popular Sonic The Hedgehog sequel, made specifically for the Sega Master System. Sonic returns home to his island just in time to see Dr. Eggman (a.k.a. Dr. Robotnik) run off with Tails. In fact, Dr. Eggman has kidnapped all of Sonic’s animal friends and placed them in robotic mind-controlling suits. He demands the six Chaos Emeralds, hidden on the island, in exchange for their safe return. Explore underground mine shafts, dash through underwater tunnels and hang glide through the clouds in Sonic’s search for the Chaos Emeralds. Once Sonic’s found them all, he must face off with the evil Dr. Eggman and thwart his plan for global domination.

New Ghostbusters game trailer touts Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and Hudson


The Video Game HD Screenshot

A new Ghostbusters: The Video Game trailer along with new screenshots has been released by Atari, who will publish the game on six systems (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PC and DS) in 2009. Note that the Wii and PS2 version will feature more cartoony looking graphics and characters due to the lack of HD graphics.

The Video Game on PS3Developed by Terminal Reality, who worked closely with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Inc., the game will be released to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration of the original film’s theatrical release with a completely new story that re-unites the original cast members from the film (complete with their voice acting and in-game likeness) in a sequel (Ghostbusters 3, if you will) that seeks to recapture the unique blend of humor, fright and action that established Ghostbusters as one of the most popular and recognizable pop culture sensations in history.

Here is an all-new trailer for the game.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is penned by the original writers of Ghostbusters, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd and re-unites the original film’s cast, for the first time in 20 years, in Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson with a storyline that takes place two years after the Ghostbuster II film. The game even features fan favorites such as William Atherton (Walter Peck), Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz) and Brian Doyle-Muray (Mayor Jock Mulligan).

Sony will also be releasing the two movies on Blu-ray disc for the first time in celebration of it’s anniversary.
