SlashGear Review – Guitar Hero On Tour

I’ve been on the fence about Guitar Hero On Tour ever since it was first announced. I mean, just how much fun would Guitar Hero be without the guitar? Well I’ve had about a week to play with it, so I figured it was time for me to share my thoughts.


DS Paddle Controller for perfect Arkanoid gameplay

If you’re a sucker for some classic Breakout action then Arkanoid on the Gameboy DS has probably been near the top of your must-buy list this month.  If you’ve got it, you may be pretty pleased with your current high-score; however, how well do you think you could do with a proper paddle controller?  Taito have made a limited number of the plug-in accessories, perfect for flinging around a bouncing ball.


10 uses for your old outdated DS

With as fast as technology gets updated, those of us that are gadget hungry are always stuck with outdated devices and that goes for gaming gadgets too. I have had an old DS that hasn’t been touched for quite some time and I’ve been debating what on earth to do with it. For those that do have an extra DS, you can go here and check out ten different uses for it.


Crash – Mind Over Mutant coming this fall

Crash Bandicoot is about to make yet another appearance, most of us haven’t played it since Crash’s days on the PS1. Although some ended it with the racing game (Crash Tag Team Racing), which wasn’t exactly exciting. It excelled at being overly mediocre.


Grab a Guitar Hero: On Tour DS Lite and rock out

I’m sure that by now you’ve heard plenty about Guitar Hero: On Tour, and have likely made some sort of decision as to whether or not you’re going to buy it. If you’re one of the people that thinks this is the game that will finally get you to purchase a DS, then youll be happy to hear that you’ll be able to purchase the game bundled with a special edition DS Lite.


Lucasarts wants to put old adventure games on the DS, if they will fit

Most gamers over the age of 15 or so remember a time when Lucasarts actually made games that weren’t based in a galaxy far far away. However, many in the younger crowd might be surprised by this, so you’ll just have to trust me. Games like Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island were great games, and they might just be making a comeback.


Clone Wars coming to Wii and DS this Fall

Everyone that loves Star Wars is no doubt excited about the upcoming game, The Force Unleashed. However, according to an insert contained in Lego Indiana Jone, there is another title set in a galaxy far far away coming out this Fall.

If you didn’t already know, there is also another Star Wars movie coming out around the same time. No, not another live action flick, but CG animated movie titled Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As you might have guessed, the game will be based around the movie.

Not much more is known about the game, aside from the fact that it will be on the Wii and DS. so we’ll have to wait until Lucasarts is ready to spill the beans.

New DS colors spotted: red, blue & green reach gamers

Examples of Nintendo’s new color versions of the DS Lite handheld, which the company confirmed last week, have begun to show up in the wild.  Specifically, the red, blue and green versions have reached gamers’ hands, despite it being a few weeks before the official June 13th launch in Europe.  As the pictures suggested, the colors range from the vivid to the relatively demure.


The DS releases ads just for female gamers

The DS is well known for attracting female gamers, and I am always for more ladies gaming. However, their new line of commercials leaves me with mixed feelings, one of those feelings being nausea.


SlashGear Week in Review – May 25th

After a few weeks of budget, mobile laptops grabbing the headlines, its been the turn of monstrous gaming machines to storm the limelight.  Acer announced their first serious gamer’s desktop, the Aspire Predator, which is intended to take the breed out of the boutique and into mainstream computer stores.  Alienware struck back with an updated Area-51 ALX; the industry’s first overclocked 4GHz Core 2 Extreme aimed to put Acer back into their place.


New DS colors confirmed for Europe

Remember those new DS colors that we showed you the other day? Well it looks as though the rumors were true, and the colors are real. Well, they’re real for Europe at least, which would explain why they started showing up on a Spanish site first.

Nintendo has officially begun distributing these advertisements which clearly show some new colors for those in the European region. You can never have too many colors, right? Europe is especially in need of a few new colors, as they’ve not been as fortunate as the US or Japan in getting some of the extra ones we’ve seen. Of course now I’m wondering when we’ll see these new colors hit the US shores.


Rumors of red and green DS Lites

There is a new rumor floating about that a couple new colors will be making their way onto the DS Lites. This pretty red and green have been shown as coming soon on a Spanish retail site.
