Fight! We bring some Nintendo style to Soul Calibur V

Nintendo consoles may not have Soul Calibur V (yet) but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the Nintendo to Soul Calibur V. Considering no other console has access to Super Smash Bros Brawl, it’s the least we could do.

Convincing one of our charming colleagues to lend us their Xbox 360 for an afternoon, we were able to fill up their custom character roster with myriad successful and not-quite-so successful Nintendo-ish mannequins.

Not ones to keep secrets to ourselves, here are some handy hints for general character re-creation and some details of the more important steps we took in designing our own clones.


What’s important?
Soul Calibur V’s creation tool isn’t the most flexible in the gaming world and, more often than not, you’ll have to be purposefully thrifty. Because of this the very first thing to ask yourself is simply – what’s important about this character? What defines them? What forms their silhouette? The answers to these most basic questions will form the foundations for re-creating your character, as while you’ll never be 100% spot on, Soul Calibur V’s character creator just isn’t that good. However, nailing the key elements can lead to some surprisingly convincing doppelgängers.

Before you judge a piece of equipment or an overall design make sure you’ve examined it in the correct colour scheme. Most armour will look totally wrong until you splash it with the character’s correct shade. Similarly, you can get away with a lot just as long as your character’s colour palette is correct.

The bottom three slots in the equipment menu are your most versatile tools. These three items can be placed anywhere on your character and can take a huge variety of shapes and sizes, particularly the featureless geometry at the bottom. Experimenting is best. If a character is missing a small, defining detail, as most often are, then custom equipment can hold the key. When in doubt, use a Raccoon Tail. That’s our best advice. Seriously.

Stickers are as equally versatile a tool as equipment. They can change the stitching in a piece of clothing or create the correct markings on a character’s face in one quick stamp. Likewise you can use them to create letters, or add that essential falcon to the back of a jacket. Again, experimentation is key, and take these into account when weighing up clothing.

Level up
We’ve almost unlocked all the available customisation options in the game, but it takes a long long (long) time to unlock absolutely everything. If you’re struggling or can’t find a piece to replicate our design then chances are you need to level up a little bit more so just go back to enjoying the game.

Anyway, enough talking, on with the freak-show!

First appearance:
Donkey Kong
Important features:
Rotund belly.
Distinct red and blue colouring.
‘M’ hat.

Astaroth. Mario used a hammer in Donkey Kong, so this is our homage to that classic, oversized tool.

Our touches:
For Mario’s unnaturally bulbous nose we turned the ‘Bottle Gourd’ horizontal, shrunk it to the appropriate size, and positioned it in place of his ordinary, tiny shnoz.

Mario’s moustache is actually a black ‘Raccoon Tail’ item turned on its side and positioned under the nose. Fluffy.

There is no peaked cap in the game, or at least not that we have found, so we carefully twisted a ‘Crescent Moon’ around a Knitted Cap to create the appropriate effect.

Stickers were used to replicate Mario’s dungaree buttons and the M logo. The M itself uses two mirrored Chinese symbols.

First appearance:
The Legend of Zelda
Important features:
Iconic tunic style with short skirt-like overhang.
Pointed ‘Hylian’ Ears.
Drooped hat.
Brown adventurer boots and gloves.

Pyrrha Omega. The basic stance adopted in this style most closely resembles Link’s default pose. The Patroklos weapon style makes him look unnaturally pious.

Our touches:
There is no proper stand-in for Link’s hat so we used the bandana, the tightest headgear available, and combined it with a shrunken, green Raccoon Tail hanging over Link’s back. Examined closely it looks silly, but in the heat of combat no-one can notice the fur.

The tunic is called ‘New Centurion’. Before colouring it you’d call us mad, but just look at it now – perfect!

As the cherry on the Link-alike cake we gave him a pair of earrings, barely noticeable but we know they’re there. We know.

I do not know about anyone else, but this is really awesome!

3DS Continues to Dominate in Japan

Posted Thu, 01 Mar 2012 | 15:00 GMT by Thomas Whitehead

More colours = more sales?

Outselling all the rest

Any suspicion that the 3DS revival in Japan was a temporary improvement is still being disproven, with the latest Japanese charts showing another strong showing for the handheld. With 3DS software also prominent, the handheld is still on a roll in its homeland.

The latest Media Create results, as reported by Andriasang, show that the handheld has once again out-sold all other consoles combined, with a total of 76,322 units. Harvest Moon Hajimari no Daichi — the new entry in the series on 3DS — claimed second in the software charts, while old favourites Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Monster Hunter 3 G still enjoy top ten positions. The ageing Wii, however, is fifth in the hardware chart with 7,878 units sold and no titles in the software top 20.

While Wii is clearly fading, Nintendo's latest handheld is continuing to enjoy success in Japan. Although results won't be as spectacular elsewhere, it'll be interesting to see how the 3DS performs in other territories in the coming months.

Punch Out review Many NES games just don't stand the test of time when played these days. What passed as fun gameplay 20 years ago often comes across as tired and repetitive in this day of unlockable content and complex graphics.

One game that stands firm is Punch-Out!!, an arcade-style boxing game that's just as much fun now as it was back in 1992.

You have to take your boxer, Little Mac, through all the championship circuits, fighting all sorts of hilarious stereotypes along the way.

The great thing about it is that every fighter has a weakness that you need to work out. So you'll be smacking King Hippo in his wobbly weak gut, punching Glass Joe in his glass jaw (the name is a bit of a giveaway) and dealing a few sobering blows to Soda Popinski.

It also features a classic cutscene featuring a pink jump suit and top-class cameo from Mario who stands in as the referee.

Punch-Out Wii stuck to the same formula so if you want a cheaper alternative, the original is still excellent. Top-notch fighting fun.

Punch-Out!! is available to download from the Wii and 3DS Virtual Console

PAL Version

Posted Thu, 01 Mar 2012 | 17:00 GMT by James Newton

Life and soul

Nintendo's never been afraid to capitalise on the success of its franchises or, as some would say, beat its successful games to within an inch of their lives. Who knew when the very first Mario Party hit N64 in 1998 that, 14 years later, we'd be staring at the 11th — 12th if you count Mario Party-e — instalment in the series? After years of dice blocks and manic minigames, has the franchise finally outlived its welcome?

The pleasing and altogether surprising answer is "no". Mario Party 9 deviates significantly from the series' familiar template, pitching four characters together in a vehicle and having them move along the board together instead of individually. While this removes some of its predecessors' opportunity for devious route-taking and opponent-stomping, it actually works well, increasing the speed of games and facilitating a new style for the boards.

Instead of collecting coins to purchase stars, you now collect mini-stars when you pass over certain squares. Mini-stars are generously distributed around the boards, so it's no longer a case of everyone racing to get to one spot only for the Star to move. There are so-called mini-ztars that rob you of your precious little lights though, so look out.

Gone too is the rigid structure of playing a mini game after all characters have taken their turn. Mini games are less frequent occurrences now, taking place when you land on certain squares or simply by chance, and this title is better and quicker for it. That's not to say the mini games are poor — most of them eschew shaky motion controls in favour of holding the Wii Remote NES-style, but the games that employ motions do so with a quick shake or simple twist. Some might be disappointed at the lack of Wii MotionPlus controls, but that's more Wii Play Motion's arena; it's unlikely Ndcube could have come up with 80 motion-emphasis mini games that are as good as the more traditional button-based affairs often found here. Gladly there's rarely a scenario where the controls get in the way, with simple explanations and practically zero loading time getting you in and out of the games quickly and easily. With 80 mini games included there's bound to be a few duff ones, but on the whole it's one of the strongest arrays for quite a while.

Still more change comes in the form of new boss battles: whereas previous games ended after a certain number of turns, each board in MP9 now has a clearly defined end point where the final boss lurks. Reaching a boss or mini-boss as the Captain — i.e. on your turn — nets you bonus mini-stars and the choice to pick your opponent, and while there aren't that many boss options most of them are an enjoyable mix of skill and chaos. Whether you're on a mine cart destined to fire a cannon at a Chain Chomp or playing a fantastically tactical numbers game with Whomp, they're just long enough to feel like boss battles and just short enough to stay fun.

You'll be able to finish most parties in around 30 minutes, whetting the appetite for another go-around. Play accumulates party points, which you can spend on new boards, vehicles, a harder difficulty level or constellations for the observatory mode. It'll take plenty of play to unlock everything, whether solo or in a party, providing welcome reasons to return. In fact, there's a separate mode that pitches single players against CPU opponents across each board: if you lose, you fail the board and have to try again. Suffice to say, you won't be firing it up for repeated solo play.

Not in the board game mode at least, but the Extras menu holds a few intriguing alternatives, from an addictive puzzle game with the most infuriating music to Goomba Bowling, where you throw red shells at waves of Goombas. Both are worth a blast, though Shell Soccer is pretty woeful. You can also choose to play any unlocked mini game at your leisure if you don't fancy traipsing around the board.

It's not all successful though: the so-called Captain Events are often poorly explained side quests that confuse far more than they entertain, and unlike fellow recent Mario-themed board game Fortune Street/Boom Street there's no online play, so it's strictly a single room-only experience. It doesn't suffer too much for that — all parties are best contained in a single area — but if you don't have a regular corral of local players you might find it off-putting.


Mario Party 9 makes the most major changes to the series we've seen in years, streamlining it to a short and snappy rush of mini games. It's less predictable than its previous instalments, smartly ditching the dead wood in favour of a fresh approach that emphatically reminds us why the series has been going for 14 years.

The original platformer

As soon as this appears on your Virtual Console list, you download it. Simple as that. The game that defined the platform genre, Super Mario Bros. is a game everyone should play before they die.

If you've never played it we can only assume it's because you were too young when it came out or you're not a 3DS Ambassador. If so, fair enough: just download it to hide your shame and we'll never speak of it again. If you have played it, you'll already know why it's an essential purchase.

The music. The flagpole. The fireworks. The warp zones. Jumping on the drawbridge to send Bowser into the fire. The Fire Flower. Kicking a Koopa Troopa shell into other enemies. The 1-Up Mushrooms. World 1-2 with the 'boodoo boodoo boodoo' music. And the classic "Thank you Mario! But our princess is in another castle!" line.

The fact that our Chris, 25 years after he first played the game, still stays behind after work to complete it again is a testament to its perfect gameplay. This is the sort of game that the Virtual Console was designed for.

Super Mario Bros is available to download on the Wii Virtual Console and from the 3DS eShop

Black Ops 2 due this November - Retail Radar

Spanish retailer indicates Activision's unannounced Call of Duty sequel being readied for release during typical launch window.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will go on sale this November, according to Spanish retail site Fnac.

Activision had previously confirmed that a new Call of Duty title would ship in 2012, but did not provide a name or a release window. Call of Duty has had new installments debut between late October and mid-November every year since the franchise was launched in 2003.

The retail listing does not provide further information regarding the game, and as of press time, Activision had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

This is far from the first indication that this year's Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Two weeks ago, Amazon France reportedly posted (and then pulled) a listing for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Later, a contract art studio employee's resume included mention of the game.

Treyarch developed the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, which was set during the Cold War. For more on the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, check out GameSpot's review.

Eight new We Sing Pop! tracks unveiled on the We Sing Facebook page

Thursday 1st March: Nordic Games has today unveiled the latest songs on the We Sing Pop! tracklist, available exclusively on the Wii from the 23rd March 2012.

In collaboration with Spotify, the tracks that have already been unveiled can found on the We Sing Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/WeSingGame

Taken from Coldplay’s second album, the 16th song to be revealed on the We Sing Pop! tracklist is Clocks. The song has been widely sampled by artists including David Guetta, Brandy, Royksopp and Agnes due to its infectious piano riff which won the band Record of the Year at the 2004 Grammy Awards.

Nobody’s perfect by Jessie J was released in May 2011 and was Jessie’s third top ten single after making an impact on the charts with her debut solo album Who You Are. The song is about struggling with past indiscretions and the internal fight that being a perfectionist can bring.

Considered one of Nelly Furtado’s signature songs, I’m Like a Bird is featured was the first single to be released from her first album, reaching the top 10 in the UK, USA, Australia and Canada. In 2001 the song won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, this hadn’t been done by a debut female artist since Mariah Carey 10 years earlier.

Mysterious Girl by Peter Andre feat. Bubbler Ranx was a favourite with teenage girls up and down the country in the 90s. First released in the UK in 1996, the song peaked in the charts at number 2. It then hit the top spot when it was re-released in 2004 after Andre made an appearance in the UK reality series I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of here.

Singer song writing duo Sonny and Cher were number one in the US and UK charts with their song I’ve Got You Babe which is now featured on the Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Songs list. It’s sure to be a hit with those who like teaming up as a duet.

YMCA by the Village People is a disco favourite and resonates with people of all ages. First released in 1978 the song reached number 1 in the UK and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. The popular track even has its own dance moves to accompany the chorus.

Released in 2010, The Club Can’t Handle Me by Flo Rida feat. David Guetta was the lead track on the hip hop dance film Step Up 3D soundtrack. A number one song in the UK, it remains a popular club anthem.

“When compiling our wishlist of songs we wanted for We Sing Pop!, we were keen to we included some songs that all the family can enjoy together,” says Nik Blower, Sales and Marketing Director, Nordic Games. “There are some signature songs on here that will definitely trigger off some happy memories. We cannot wait to unveil the full tracklist next week.”

We Sing Pop! will be released on March 23rd 2012, exclusively for Nintendo Wii. Seven more songs will be unveiled next week. Check out the playlist to date at http://www.facebook.com/WeSingGame

Side handled The Last Story's British localization

The Last Story is the latest JRPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi that lets you take charge of a band of mercenaries and journey with them into a sprawling cinematic adventure. To help bring this story to life Side cast and directed over 400 characters, recording over 13,000 lines.

Laetitia Amoros, senior production manager on the game said;
“With The Last Story we wanted to ensure that the voices we cast matched with the strong characters in the game, and also that they sounded right as a team. We cast across a wide range of actors and accents to achieve this.”

You are going to wait a year before you pick it up! Why not just redbox it? Or better yet, Blockbuster just closed down another store in my area. Rent it from them.

We have absolutely no Blockbuster in our area. :'( I also don't like renting games that much. I would rather own them so that I could play them whenever. My main priority is the Wii U right now though.

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

So Mario Party 9 is as good as the DS one or not'
