John Lennon Is A SingStar

john_lennon_2-12Well, this week’s SingStore update is a complete dud. Well, I guess not if you’re a big John Lennon fan. Because aside from a five-pack of Lennon tracks, there are literally only two songs in this SingStar DLC update. They are:

“Hot” by Avril Lavigne
“Animal Nitrate” by Suede

And then the John Lennon 2 pack, which contains “Mother,” “Whatever Gets You Thru’ The Night,” “Stand By Me,” “Nobody Told Me,” and “Jealous Guy.”

So… Better luck next fortnight, I suppose!

WiiU_ZeldaWindWakerND_Scrn09Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct video this morning, and since it was focused on the Wii U, I couldn’t really get my panties in a bunch about them not mentioning Animal Crossing: New Leaf. There was some really good stuff teased, including some really high-profile game announcements. Shame that the release dates are likely to be 2014 or 2015!

This Week’s Rock Band DLC Isn’t Exactly Stronger

Stronger-What-Doesn-t-Kill-You-Music-Video-kelly-clarkson-28156021-1209-680Well, for those of you (like me) with Rock Band Blitz, this week’s Rock Band Music Store update is a non-event. There are four tracks to choose from this week, but as they were all included with Blitz, they’re not exactly new. Although if you never bought Blitz, then they’re new to you! And they are some good songs, too. They are:

“Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson
“Cult of Personality” by Living Colour
“Bang Your Head (Metal Health)” by Quiet Riot
“Spoonman” by Soundgarden

“Stronger” is the only one with keyboards, but they have added Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for “Cult of Personality” and “Spoonman” if that’s your bag, baby.

No Ni No Kuni For You

noninokuniAll the way back in August of last year, I decided to place a pre-order with Namco Bandai for the Ni No Kuni Wizard’s Edition. It was only available through them, and the more people who pre-ordered the collector’s edition, the more swag they were going to include in the box. So I did my part. Unfortunately, in this case, the early bird did not get the worm. [UPDATED 1/23]

Australia’s First R18+ Game Is Coming

Finally.

(With apologies to our Aussie readers…I meant to have this up last week for you guys, but then our server went kerplunk.)

For decades, Australians have suffered under the burden of a games rating system that made no sense whatsoever. It didn’t really protect kids from violent imagery, and it didn’t really give adults the freedom to play what they want – and that’s kind of what a rating system is supposed to be about, no?

With the dawn of the R18+ rating, however, Aussie gamers are getting a system much closer to its international counterparts (and its own film rating system), meaning there should be much less censorship consternation in bringing games for grown-ups to the land down under, while preventing little kids from eviscerating people in Mortal Kombat or whatever.

What is the first game to get this rating, you might ask?  Why, it’s the Wii U’s redesigned and ultra-violent Ninja Gaiden 3 – which is being published by Nintendo.
