Let’s Play: Pokemon Black and White (DS)

Zekrom and Reshiram Legendary Pokemon Black and White artwork (Let's Play)
Today is Pokemon day, and to celebrate Let’s Play some Pokemon Black Version!

Pokemon Black is one of two versions of the latest set of Pokemon titles available, each with varying Pokemon that are harder to find in the other version (as well as some Pokemon which won’t appear in the other version). Which is nothing new for the long-running Pokemon series; What it means is that you will need to trade with others if you are to “Catch Them All” and complete your Pokedex in the game (thankfully you can trade online and battle online in Pokemon Black and White). The clearest example of version differences are between the two Pokemon that grace each version’s cover. In Pokemon Black you will exclusively encounter the Legendary Dragon-type Pokemon Reshiram; While in Pokemon White you’ll exclusively encounter the Legendary Dragon-type Zekrom.

And don’t forget that from today until April 10th you will be able to catch a special Pokemon that won’t be available after that date. Check out our How to catch and where to find Victini in Pokemon Black and White guide to see the steps you need to take to catch this mysterious Legendary Pokemon.

Without further ado, let’s play Pokemon Black!

Part 1: Intro, Opening Scenes, Meeting Professor Juniper, Choosing A Pokemon, First Battle

Dragon Quest 6: Realms of Revelation artwork (DS)
Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation is now out for Nintendo DS, as the newest re-release for Nintendo’s portable.

The release of Dragon Quest 6 marks the first time this Super NES/Super Famicon classic has been released in America; 15 years after it hit Japan. The last entry in the “Zenith” saga that started with the DS re-release of Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen and continued with the DS re-release of Dragon Quest V: Hands of the Heavenly Bride. This is the final game in the Zenith “trilogy” and the last numbered game on a Nintendo system until last year’s “Dragon Quest IX”.

“THUD! You wake up, on the floor, disturbed by terrible dreams, and an epic battle gone horribly wrong.”

One day, you stumble upon the dream world of your dreams. Shortly after, a beautiful spirit pays you a visit, bringing with her startling news. Your peaceful and quiet world is suddenly not what it seems. A great mystery surrounds these two worlds, inexplicably intertwined.

Let’s Play: Mario Sports Mix

Mario Sports Mix Yoshi and Toad play Hockey
Mario Sports Mix is the modern return of the Mario Sports series to Wii.

The series saw its last release on the Wii with “Mario Strikers: Charged” in 2007 (a Mario take on Soccer, and sequel to the GameCube’s “Super Mario Strikers” from 2005) and Mario Super Sluggers in 2008 (a Mario take on Baseball, and the sequel to 2005’s “Mario Superstar Baseball” for GameCube).

After those two releases, we saw Sega take ahold of the Mario Sports series which gave us two titles: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games in 2007 and Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games in 2009.

Now, in 2011, Square Enix has taken another shot at the series with Mario Sports Mix, a title that sees Mario taking a second spin on basketball (the first time was with Square Enix’s “Mario Hoops 3-On-3” for the DS in 2006) and tackling three all-new sports for the first time: Hockey, Dodgeball and Volleyball.

Like all of the previous Mario games, the gameplay is extremely simple. In most games you perform the main action by shaking the Wii Remote and pass by pressing the A Button. Pressing the A+B buttons at anytime will perform your character’s Super Move.

Players who were fans of the previous games will probably want to take a look at this game, although from my experience so far, non-fans need not apply.

Here is my “Let’s Play” of Mario Sports Mix for the Wii:

Let’s Play: Catherine

Catherine C and Catherine K game artwork
Atlus released a Catherine demo in Japan on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace the other day. In this “Let’s Play” Tokyodome plays through it, while translating the Japanese for us on the go.

Atlus’ Persona Team are behind this action-adventure game, that combines puzzle and survival-horror elements. It’s their next-gen HD game debut and they are promising a 20-hour-long single-player campaign with multiple endings, and competitive multiplayer modes on top of that.

In the Catherine demo you’ll be able to sample a selection of the game’s opening feature event movies, anime cutscenes, and gameplay action parts. The full retail version of Catherine has only been announced for release in Japan, where it hits on February 17th, 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The storyline of Catherine is quite frankly a mystery, not just because not a lot is known, but mostly because it’s incredibly bizarre! You control Vincent, a 30-year-old guy who meets a strange girl named Catherine, after which he begins to have strange nightmares, that may or may not end up killing him. As you’ll see from the videos below, the main story mode, called Golden Theater, follows the story between Daytime and Nightmare scenarios. During the daytime, Vincent will converse with his friends as well as try to handle his relationship with the two women, Catherine and Katherine. But during the nighttime he lives recurring nightmares in which he is climbing a never-ending staircase.

Oh and did I mention the red-eyed sheep yet? Yeah they somehow play into all of this as well with our main character slowly changing into one of them…

In the first part Stage 1: Underground Cemetery is played. Be aware this is a mature rated game in Japan. Not to mention that the F-bomb is dropped a few times during the translation to English, so some coarse language is ahead. That said, this is a really cool look at a game that may never be released in the West.

In the second part Day 1: Chrono Rabbit & Stray Sheep anime cutscenes are shown.

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future preview video (DS)

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future title artwork
Hello guys and girls, here’s a Professor Layton and the Unwound Future preview of the upcoming Nintendo DS game.

The game will be released in America this coming Sunday (September 12, 2010). It was released in Japan way back in November of 2008 under the title, “Professor Layton and the Last Time Travel”, and is only now hitting the West two years later.

This game has the most voice acting of any game in the series, and it is also full of glorious cutscenes, so that must be the reason for the long wait. They had so much audio to translate. Europe will get the game, under the title “Professor Layton and the Lost Future” on October 22, 2010 with Australians getting the game before then on September 20, 2010 (which was the original US date as well, but they actually moved it UP to the 12th).

Unwound Future is a Professor Layton game. That is to say, if you’ve played any of the previous two games in the series (Professor Layton and the Curious Village and Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box) then you will know exactly what to expect with this entry.

The game is an adventure title, where you explore various locations, tapping the screen to gain info or comments from “renowned archaeologist” and master puzzle solver Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke. By tapping the shoe icon in the bottom right corner you can move about the different frames or “scenes”, which are generally still pictures as you’d expect from an Adventure game. Most scenes will contain a character or two that you can talk to by tapping them and doors you can enter that lead to various shops or other locations. You can also tap specific objects in the environment to earn “Hint Coins”, which can be used to purchase hints on difficult puzzles.
