Top 5: Licensed Games That Don't Stink

Apparently, happy is the new angry (Uggh, I apologize; I hate the "X is the new Y" phrase as much as anyone). While the Angry Video Game Nerd series continues to grow in popularity, a legion of imitators -- err, "inspirées" -- have arisen from the depths of YouTube. While most appear...

The Incredible (shrunken) Hulk

It just seems wrong to take the Incredible Hulk and make him somewhat less incredible, and by that, we mean tiny. Tiny enough to fit on a DS screen -- a single screen, mind you, and he doesn't even fill it up! Look at the example here to the right. More like The Miniscule Hulk, amirite? To see more...

It's a damn Kung Fu Panda

These days, it seems that when someone makes an animated film, someone else clearly has to come along and make a game, and even kung fu pandas aren't exempt from this rule. Though, considering that getting your beat on can be pretty fun in games, we hear, it might make sense in this case. There's...

Wii ain't afraid of no ghosts

Over a year ago, a British magazine compiled what seemed like a joking list of great possible ideas for Wii games -- and one of those is about to become a reality. Not long after a rumor surfaced of a beloved 80s franchise getting remade in gaming form, Game Informer revealed their December cover...

Eidos set to bring more classic cartoons to your DS

We can no longer ignore the signs: classic cartoons are clearly the hottest thing going for DS developers and publishers lately, and Eidos has announced that they are jumping on the bandwagon. And by "jumping on," we mean "attempting to seriously dominate the new market," as they're planning ten --...

Duck Amuck breaks both screens' fourth walls [update 1]

Duck Amuck is the best concept for a minigame collection we've ever seen. It may also be the best concept for a licensed game we've ever seen. It's based on the classic 1951 Merrie Melodie, in which a malevolent animator (later revealed to be--SPOILER-- Bugs Bunny) jerks Daffy Duck around as the...

WayForward licensed to develop for Wii

Another Western developer has signed on to make Wii games-- hopefully they can get the funding to make some original ones. WayForward mostly makes licensed stuff these days, of undetermined quality (we haven't had a chance to test GBA Unfabulous), but they are also responsible for the excellent...

Gotta catch em' all with two versions of Transformers DS

If robots from the planet Cybertron crash landed in your backyard and asked for your undying allegiance, which side would you choose? The hip-hopping lyrical masters, the Autobots? Or Team Starscream, otherwise known as the Decepticons? You had better decide before this Summer when the robots in...

Powerpuff Girls adapted to anime, anime adapted to minigames

This news manages to be both supremely weird and completely banal at the same time. It's interesting conceptually, but mechanically, it's another licensed minigame set. Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z is the made-for-Japan adaptation of the Cartoon Network show, which was itself inspired by anime. And...

One Piece Unlimited Adventure gets stretchy, swingy

We'll admit to being somewhat negligent in our anime viewing. To put a fine point on it, we don't know the first thing about One Piece. But we know brawlers, and any such game where you can play as a stretchy-arm guy is okay with us. One Piece Unlimited Adventure uses limited "swing attacks" that...
