DS Daily: The strongest genre

The DS boasts a pretty respectable library by now, with many genres represented by some very excellent titles. But what does the DS do best? Some find the touchscreen strategy most addictive, while others spend their time hunting down new adventure games. Of course, there's always the very excellent...

Joystiq impressions: Battle of the Bands (Wii)

THQ's under-the-radar Wii game, Battle of the Bands is coming out this month. I recently saw the game in action, and I finally have a grasp on its concept. Thankfully renamed from Band Mashups, Battle of the Bands pits two gamers against each other in a Wiimote-only rhythm competition. As Guitar...

DS Daily: Underrepresented

DS owners have tons to choose from; after all, there are usually more games we want than we can possibly play in any given year. That doesn't mean everything is perfect, however. It's likely that, no matter how satisfied you are with your handheld, some facet of gaming seems underrepresented to you...

Wii Warm Up: Genre hunting

Now that the Wii is one year old, it's time for us to start getting greedy. It is the holiday season, after all!* So, what genre would you like to see beefed up on the Wii? First person shooters, sports games, RPGs, what have you, we'd just like to know. And why that particular genre? Is it...

DS Daily: Reformulated

We thought we'd do a little thought experiment today. The DS is home to a few games that combine two unrelated genres unexpectedly, to varying results: the (nominally) rhythm-based brawler Draglade, and the puzzle RPG Puzzle Quest, to name two. We'd like you to come up with a design idea for a game...

Xbox 360 only 17% shooter games (22% of 'good games')

The Xbox 360 has a reputation for being a shooting man's console. If it runs and guns, it must be Xbox 360. Turns out that's not so true, but it took until now for site to lay it all out. FPS Source gave us the numbers and X3F came along with an easy to understand pie chart. Originally taking what...

DS Daily: Genre talk

So, we gotta ask: what's your favorite genre, if you had to choose? That's a tough one for us; honestly, tastes tend to change day to day and by what's in front of us. We love action and we love puzzles, and sometimes we prefer racing or RPGs. But if you had to pick -- even if you can only narrow it...

DS Daily: Dream fighter

Let's face it: there aren't many decent fighters for the DS. Japan received the superb Jump Superstars, featuring an insanely large cast of everyone's favorite anime characters, but was not seen fit for localization. While DS Fanboy is all about hopes and dreams, we're also about violence; with...

DS Daily: Overabundance and dearth

The number of DS games given stateside release is now probably beyond 500 (we'd count up all the entries here but we're too lazy), but as in college campuses around the country, diversity can be a tricky beast. We've seen some great titles across the board, of course, but haven't you felt that the...

Telltale Games looking to the Wii

Telltale Games, the studio currently in charge of the Sam n' Max titles, has recently put out a calling for a Wii programmer. Among the very long list of necessary technical experience, the final line includes a requisite love of adventure games. Seriously. So, is SnM coming to the Wii? Rather...
