In the comments area of our recent post about the adventure game Lux-Pain, a discussion popped up about length in adventure games. Basically, they tend to be short. Some people avoid some adventures because of this (a problem that is exacerbated by the fact that most adventure games have zero replay...

Not only are there dozens -- well, almost two dozen -- games slated for release in the U.S. this week, but included in the list are a few particularly interesting titles. Kirby Super Star Ultra, though announced some time ago, comes seemingly out of nowhere after some recent wacky promotions, and M...

Konami sent out three new DS game announcements for Europe at the ongoing Games Convention, so we thought we would provide it all at once in digest format. Along with the announcements, there's a bunch of art and screens to look at as well. You'll find galleries after the break. Before we get star...

According to reports from Nintendo Power subscribers who've received this month's issue early, Konami plans to bring its adventure title, Time Hollow, stateside this August, confirming recent rumors spurred by GameFly product listings. Time Hollow has you going back in time to fix small things that ...

Sony dominated the first (and last) five in the top thirty software chart, but aside from that, everything else was Nintendo. The DS had fifteen games to represent it, but even if you added up the sales numbers for all those games, the total wouldn't come close to what Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G ...

The PSP might have dominated in Japan, selling as much hardware last week as every other system combined, but that doesn't mean the DS didn't do well for itself. In fact, Nintendo's handheld came in second place, selling around 60,000 units. The story is similar in software, as DS titles came no whe...

Last week was the week of new releases! Anticipating high holiday sales, many publishers made sure to release their games last week, with a total of fifteen ending up in the top thirty (seven of those being DS titles). With this slew of new releases, though, a lot of games were bumped off the chart ...

The Japanese site for Time Hollow has some new content in the form of several different videos available. Focusing on gameplay and explaining the features of the game (we assume, what with not being able to speak Japanese and all), it seems there is something here for everyone. Also, there's a hea...

This week, there are a lot of DS games headed out all around the globe, but it's particularly a great week for those of you who keep your eyes peeled for interesting Japanese releases. Not the import type? That's okay -- there's a lot of other games to consider, and some that aren't even quite games...

Hardly a confirmation, but the Gamefly listing for Time Hollow does raise a few interesting questions. Considering that Gamefly has been lucky in spilling the beans on some titles in the past, we're willing to entertain the possibility of the game hitting North America. We will not, however, enter...

Despite the fact that, as alluded to in the post title, this stuff is basically marketing for other games, we love it when game music turns up in rhythm games. It may have something to do with the fact that video game music is awesome, especially from companies like Konami that care enough about mu...

If you checked out the demo for Konami's Time Hollow, then you probably felt a lot of the same frustration we did. The large amounts of Japanese text that permeated the Flash demo for the game really halted all of our progress in it, not to mention our excitement for the game after we'd seen many ...

Konami is now offering a Flash demo of their time-traveling adventure game, Time Hollow. There's only one problem: adventure games tend to have a lot of text in them, and all of the text in this one is in Japanese. You can think of that as an extra challenge if you want, maybe. We still think it's w...

People who enjoy drawing circles around things should go circle March 18th on their calendars, because that's the day the temporal circle-drawing adventure Time Hollow will be released in Japan, according to the official website. Of course, if you have a magic time pen or something, you can just go ...

We love the concept of Konami's Time Hollow, since it's a scientific fact that time travel is way awesome. Time travel for the purpose of righting personal wrongs is way Quantum Leap-some. Except, in Time Hollow, you are some feathery-haired anime kid instead of Count Bakula. The screens show a fair...

We know that the Tokyo Game Show has been "wrapped up", but there's still plenty of news being posted that we feel we'd be remiss if we didn't pass on. Like this hands-on preview of Konami's Time Hollow from Siliconera, which sounds like a much more serious, supernatural take on the kind of environm...

Coming right on the heels of Chronos Twins, Time Hollow is a game about a heroic cat who wakes up high school students from scary dreams. Welll, not really-- that's just our favorite part of the trailer (the green button on the website). From what we can tell, Konami's Time Hollow is actually a ga...
