With several major press conferences yesterday and a deluge of media assets, it's easy to miss all the smaller news items that popped up. We've rounded up three of them for you so that they won't be completely
1. Retro Game Challenge logo!
Yep, there it is, right above our post. It doesn't look too different from the Retro Game Master
DVD logo, but we'll find any excuse to talk about this wonderful, nostalgic title. In fact, keep an eye out for our hands-on impressions from the E3! For now, you can check out five new screenshots in our gallery below or have a look at the Retro Game Challenge
sell sheet past the post break.
2. Zoo Games is working on a Puzzle Quest clone?
Any time we see the words "puzzle" juxtaposed with images of fantasy-type warriors, as was the case with Puzzle Kingdoms
, our minds immediately go to last year's surprise hit, Puzzle Quest
. Though developer Infinite Interactive already has two official Puzzle Quest clones
in the works, the hybridization of RPGs and puzzle games are addictive enough that we don't mind seeing knock-offs. We hope to see more than just three pieces of character art
for Puzzle Kingdoms
3. Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades coming out less than six months after Guitar Hero: On Tour?
Alright, so you might have heard that Vicarious Visions is preparing a Guitar Hero DS sequel
for the holiday season, but if you stop for a minute and think about it, you'll realize that the original game came out only three weeks ago! That's a shorter gap than the time in between Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
and Guitar Hero: Aerosmith's
releases (8 months) for consoles!
