Nintendo of America has revealed a May 30 launch date for Genius Sonority's The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves on the 3DS eShop. No price is listed on the Nintendo page yet, though we can't imagine cost will stray too far from the original Denpa Men's $10 asking price. The Denpa Men 2 is the sequ...

This is Portabliss, a column about downloadable games that can be played on the go. The Denpa Men (officially The "DENPA" Men: They Came By Wave) seems at first glance like something new, alien, and weird, thanks to its augmented reality gimmick and, well, this video. But upon actually playing it, I...

DS games are great, and those 100 Classic Books are pretty classic and all, but they lack heaving bosoms. Nintendo of Japan and developer Genius Sonority are stepping in, shirts open and hair flowing gently in the wind, to come to the rescue of romance-starved DS owners with Love Stories for Adults:...

Nintendo finally got around to showing off the UK release of their book compilation, now called 100 Classic Book Collection. Some of us are way into it, while others see it as cashing in on the public domain. If 100 Classic Book Collection hasn't already captured your attention, what features would...

Disney announced today that a game called Disney Fairies will be heading to the Nintendo DS this holiday season. Apparently, Disney Fairies is an entire franchise, spanning books, online minigames, movies, and maybe even other forms of media, too. The DS game will let young girls (we hate to general...

Each week Jeff Engel and Geoff Brooks contribute Counting Rupees, a column on the business behind gaming: In my last column I suggested that, if Microsoft is to make a Wii-like controller, it should still continue to focus on the "traditional" types of games that have so far made the 360 a succes...

We've been sitting on this copy of Square Enix's Dragon Quest Swords (retails for $50) for a little longer than we would've liked, but we're now ready to gift it to one lucky reader. As with the majority of our giveaways, there are some rules that must be followed. First of all, you must be 18 y...

In a lot of ways, Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors is a lot like the Wii itself. It appeals to a new kind of gamer by making sacrifices for the greater good, and introduces them to a genre they might not have known of or cared enough about in the past. However, in maki...

It looks like Balloon Pop got pushed back a week, meaning that it did not release last week, but is hitting retail shelves this week. We're sure that's not the game you are all dying to play, however. No, we look at this list of releases and know only one experience can satisfy your lust for a wort...

Square-Enix fans (in North America, at least) will be happy to know that the release date for Dragon Quest Swords has been bumped up, perhaps to put a little more space between itself and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. That's right, this isn't news about a delay -- the game will actually be coming out ear...

Seriously, we're looking forward to the title and all, but it's been so long. The game released in Japan months ago, yet the rest of us are left sitting and waiting for Square Enix's Dragon Quest spin-off. Now, with just about a month until it releases here in the states, it would appear the first...

Word hits that North American gamers can get their Dragon Quest fix come February 26th, when Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors releases to hungry fans. And, Dragon Quest fans are their own kind of breed of hungry fans, eagerly clawing and destroying anything in their pat...

And be sure to have your brain thank us for the last-minute headline edit which saw the removal "unshwiithed." It's best we use a concise sentence to inform you that Dragon Quest Swords is, in fact, a Wii game due for release in North America on February 26th, 2008. Oh, and there's a subtitle too: T...

The Wii exclusive Dragon Quest Swords was released in Japan this week and GameVideos has begun to slash and waggle their way through the first Square-Enix title for Nintendo's console. It's come a long way since its original debut and is looking quite nice by any standards. A knack for pleasant art...

We may have had screens to drool over recently, but we'll always take video over screens any day of the week. And it's video overload at the Japanese site for Dragon Quest Swords as the site houses not one, or two videos, but an incredible nine different snippets from the game. So, without further ...

The latest batch of screens of Square Enix's rail-RPG Dragon Quest Swords focuses entirely on everyone's favorite part of any RPG: talking to townspeople. We don't know about you, but we were afraid the game would be all about swordfighting! Sometimes we rush through the tedious boss fights and ...
