Tank Beat 2: Tank Beater

Well, that's not actually the real title of the Tank Beat sequel (it's the decidedly less catchy Tank Beat 2 Clash! German Forces Vs. the Allies), but maybe if the game is localized, O3 or whichever company will pick up on our suggestion. Their title is more descriptive, we guess.

The first Tank Beat detailed a fictional war between the countries of Codusal and Kyushengaard, though it included some real-world tanks. This one, however-- unless they've invented a new set of "Allies" and "Germans"-- takes place in World War II. You know, like every other game.

Did any of you check out Tank Beat? We didn't, though we like the idea of an arcade-ish tank game with stylus controls; we're thinking an updated Battlezone.

DS Daily: Machismo

Ever lie about what you're playing? Say, for instance, you're playing Pokemon, which is widely regarded among the non-gaming population (and certain contingents of the gaming population) as for babies, and you, as a non-baby, are asked what's in your DS by a friend.

Do you say something distinctly un-baby-like, like Brain Age or the tough-sounding Tank Beat? Or do you stay true to yourself and happily announce that you're training your new Wurmple? Are there other situations in which you consider lying? If, for example, you are playing Brain Age and you're accosted by a gamer friend who hasn't joined the non-game revolution? Or if some bloggers survey their audience and you're playing something that you don't think is appropriately cool?

WRUP: Battlin' tanks edition

With this week's releases sitting on shelves in a store near you, we imagine if you're interested in any of them, it'll be Tank Beat. Of course, that only pertains to the U.S. as Europe finally gets their hands on Wario: Master of Disguise and Australia gets almost nothing. Japan, of course, gets the most, but we're all used to that round here.

So, what will you be playing this weekend? Will you pick up Tank Beat or Wario: Master of Disguise, or are these titles lacking that "need to buy" factor for you?

DS releases for the week of May 28th

Wow, Tank Beat had completely slipped off our radar -- we're a little surprised to see it turn up this week. Pleasantly surprised, that is. We like ponies as much as the next girl, but when it comes to gaming, tanks tend to beat ponies. Maybe it's the big guns.

Anything this week tickle your particular fancy? Let us know!

Tank Beat rolling out to retail May 24th

Fans of tank-based combat will get their just desserts come May 24th when O3 Entertainment's Tank Beat hits retail shelves. News hit today via O3's official website, detailing the release date and offering what we hope is a robust and fun Wi-Fi Connect experience.

With little over a week before the game is available, you might want to read up on some of our previous reports on the game. You can also check out a few trailers on the game here and here, giving you a better glimpse into the gameplay.

Anyone excited for this?

Tank Beat site goes live

The official website for O3 Entertainment's Tank Beat has gone live, launching with a variety of resources for the gaming enthusiast with an eye for tanks. There are screenshots, trailers demonstrating single and multiplayer portions of the game and a functioning forum. They've got just about everything over there and if you're looking to pre-order the thing, there's a link to do that through Amazon as well.

Tank Beat brings the noise

If tanks make you want to crack a glowstick and hit the dance floor, then this Tank Beat trailer is the coolest thing you're going to see all day. Here's hoping they keep this music for the multiplayer side -- there's just nothing like a few pumping beats to liven up the interior of your massive killing machine. Next up: the pine-scented air freshener.
