Q&A – Gaijin Games Talks Runner2

QandA Runner2 Gaijin Games
With the BIT.TRIP series wrapped up on WiiWare and recieving a retail release on both the Wii and 3DS last year, Gaijin Games has been working away on Runner2, which intends to extend the familiar feet of Commandervideo to digital release on Xbox LIVE Arcade and the PlayStation Network later this year. As a spiritual extension, or perhaps deviation on BIT.TRIP RUNNER, fans of the series likely have a good idea of what to expect when the game releases. And yet, following updates on the Runner2 blog and wondering what Gaijin might bring to the Xbox 360 and PS3 has left me with plenty to ponder.

Since I like to get my answers straight from the horse’s mouth whenever possible, I took some questions about Runner2 to the nearest horse available, only to find it rather stubbornly silent on the subject. Fortunately, Gaijin’s Alex Neuse happened to be standing next to the horse at the time and generously agreed to help me out.

Derby Dogs
Aksys Games brings the dog track to WiiWare with Derby Dogs this week, entirely important because it reminded me of the greatest sport ever imagined within a videogame – of course I’m speaking of poison chihuahua racing.

If you’re unfamiliar with the sport, you can catch some video after the break, or consult the nearest available copy of God Hand.

Q&A – Aksys Talks 999

Filed under: Features — Tags: , , , , , , , — Jamie Love @ 8:19 pm

While far from perfect, the infinitely looping adventure of a prinny through the Disgaea universe this year planted the idea in my head that I might enjoy what the visual novel genre has to offer. Mind you, it’s still a mostly foreign concept to me, and prior to NISA’s stab at the genre I would have to fall back on PSP Metal Gear Solid comics as a poor substitution toward an idea of what a graphical text adventure is all about – which doesn’t really help at all.

A far better taste of the genre is coming later this year courtesy of Aksys Games though, with the localization of Chunsoft’s DS title 999 (9 Hours, 9 People, 9 Doors) – in which nine characters work to escape a cruise ship they are trapped aboard, not unlike a horror film, but of course with a tad more reading involved.

Lucky for me and my curiosity that Aksys had time to talk a bit about the title, which you can catch for yourself after the break.

Q&A – Aksys Talks Deathsmiles

Filed under: Features — Tags: , , , , , , — Jamie Love @ 7:49 pm

Having previously established that I have zero objectivity and nothing but enthusiastic gibberish to share about Deathsmiles finally coming to North American 360 owners, it seemed like the only thing left to do was jump up and down on Aksys’ desk about the announcement.

For the sake of dignity I squeezed a few questions in along the way, which Aksys Games’ PR Specialist Cherie Baker was good enough to answer – while leaving me with a cliffhanger to wonder about.

Catch it all after the break.
