Red Steel 2 Releasing This Holiday, Wii MotionPlus

In addition, it was revealed by UbiSoft that the title would feature Wii MotionPlus, which adds 1:1 position sensing to the Wiimote.  This will mean that the game can “sense the strength of a swing”, reading the “power and precision” of a player’s sword strikes.

Dead Space Extraction Officially Announced

dead spaceAfter John Riccitiello revealed the games extents, it looks like EA is finally ready to reveal the game. Today,  Electronic Arts have announced  Dead Space Extraction, an all-new chapter from the studio that delivered the award-winning action-horror Dead Space game.

Built from the ground up and developed exclusively for the Wii, Dead Space Extraction is a prequel that reveals the events leading up to Isaac Clarke’s mission on the USG Ishimura in the original Dead Space game released in 2008.  Dead Space Extraction will marry the innovative motion controls of the Wii Remote with a frenetic first person perspective to create a new action-packed horror experience.

The game tells the story of a handful of space colonists desperately struggling to escape from a horrific infection on the Aegis VII mining colony deep in the furthest regions of space. The game introduces a new heroine to the fiction and as the crew fall victim to a mysterious contagion aboard the ship, it becomes clear that protecting her may be their only hope for survival. Dead Space Extraction introduces all new characters, weapons, enemies, puzzles and co-operative multiplayer gameplay.

“We could not be more excited to extend Dead Space into an experience exclusive to the Wii. Nintendo has a wonderful history in the horror genre and we are thrilled to build on that tradition with Dead Space Extraction,” said Glen Schofield, VP and General Manager of EA Redwood Shores studio.“As we were developing Dead Space, we realized that there was so much of the story going untold. Dead Space Extraction tells that story with all of the intensity, blood and gore that fans would expect.”

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution Preview

ready2rumbleLets get Ready 2 Rumble!!! This was just one of the many lasting impressions that the game left on us from our last fight vs. Michel Jackson. But, that was a long time ago and it now seems that the title is ready for another championship battle.

Retaining much of the same elements that gave the original game its luster, Ready 2 Rumble Revolution will not be featuring Afro Thunder – sorry fans. But, the game will retain its RUMBLE feature, which is a round determining feature that turns the fight around.

On the Wii the game looses its original button controls and now it will take advantage of the motion-controlled realism of Wii in a Wii Remote and Nunchuk combination, so expect controls like the Wii-Boxing. And what kinda ‘new’ this game will be nothing  if it didn’t have new locations. Well, we should be happy it does.

The game runs at about 60 frames per second, and the game even has a more advanced Artificial Intelligence program. Speaking of, you will get the chance to test the Artificial Intelligence in the Championship Mode in were you create a player and go trough rankings on your way, once again, to the big Las Vegas showdown. With also have a wide variety of characters fitting for almost every player type.

And that’s it, but you can check out more information by clicking the boxing glove below.
