Mini Ninjas Character Video Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Feral Interactive has release a new video showcasing one of the ninjas from the upcoming Mini Ninjas game. The trailer features Shun, and is the first of several videos to reveal characters from the game. The trailers will be released every Wednesday and Saturday before the game's release.

Developed by Io Interactive, Mini Ninjas follows the young ninja, Hiro and his friends as they travel through spellbound lands to do battle with a magical army of animals-turned-samurai.

Greetings, followers of the Ninja way! From your training here at Feral’s private mountain you’ll know that Mini Ninjas follows Hiro’s quest to defeat the Evil Samurai Warlord, but he’s not going to get very far without help from his friends! The problem is, his friends have been missing for quite some time now.

But who are these half-pint heroes? Just as the Ninja Master sent them out one by one to investigate the strange occurrences throughout the land, we’re going to be introducing the Ninjas one-by-one, each with their own trailer – you’ll find a new video every Wednesday and Saturday until we release the game. First up is Shun; he’s a curious character, as you’ll see from his video, viewable on our YouTube channel. You can subscribe to the channel if you don’t want to miss an update!

Of course, If you’d like to find out more about the game right now, there’s always our mini site.
Mini Ninjas is scheduled for release on June 11. Check out the video and learn more about the game at the links below.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Mac|Life has published a new review of Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition. Brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media the game puts players in the role of Darth Vader's secret apprentice and gives them the chance to unleash the force without restraint. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

You begin the game as Vader himself, rampaging through the Wookiee homeworld and doing a lot of downright mean things to giant brown furballs. As TIE fighters zip past in vast numbers and you Force-blast, -throw, and -strangle everything that moves, you’ll realize two things. It’s fun to be bad. And man, this game has beautiful scenery! As the action moves to new planets like Felucia and old stomping grounds like Cloud City and the Death Star, there’s no shortage of dramatic, sweeping vistas that you’ll pause to savor.

The story itself is pretty interesting too, taking an alternate-history look at what would’ve happened if Vader had an apprentice who eventually surpassed him and stomped through the central scenes of the movies, rewriting history in a fascinatingly evil way. In fact, evil is the other good part of Force Unleashed. The game’s developers went for epic--you can throw the vaste hordes of your helpless victims across stunningly large distances, rip aircraft from the sky and throw them at foes (or friends--it is the Dark Side), or just barbecue them all by dousing them with some good ol’ Force Lightning.

Apple Games Features Torchlight
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Apple Games has posted a new game feature article focusing on Runic Games' Torchlight. The action RPG gives players the chance to choose a character and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels. Apple's article includes an overview of the game, some tips and tricks for success, and a list of cheat codes.

Victory in combat gives you experience points as well as all kinds of loot, including gold, better armor and weapons, and a variety of magical items, such as rings. When necessary, return to Torchlight and sell unwanted stuff so you can buy better weapons, armor, and magical items. Earn enough experience points and your character gains another level, allowing him to increase his skills in various areas and enhance his abilities.

The citizens of Torchlight also offer quests that reward you with not only experience but fame points too. Each new level of fame brings with it a title appended to your character’s name — such as The Unremarkable or The Memorable — as well as extra skill points.
