Zero Punctuation Ends the World


With such a vast catalog of high-profile, big-budget console games under his reviewing belt, Yahtzee risks life and limb this week to review The World Ends with You on the DS. It may be known around these parts as a stellar action-RPG with outrageous originality and style, but we're well aware that no amount of praise can stop that affable British chap from offering a hefty serving of hate.

It's certainly a unique genre to tackle, and we know everyone is totally ready to accept his criticism in the most professional manner possible. Well, maybe not, but it makes for a funny video all the same! Hit the break for the full review.

Valkyrie Profile game in the works for DS

According to this week's Jump magazine, tri-Ace is currently slogging away on a Valkyrie Profile game for the DS. Barely anything substantial is known about Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One, though three rather fuzzy scans have found their way onto the interwebs.

Murky as they are, these shots seem to suggest that the game will feature 2D sprites in an isometric game world, much like NIS' forthcoming Disgaea. We'll be playing as Wilfred, a young soldier with a grudge against the Valkyries who is given a feather by Goddess of the Underworld Heru, and who intends to use said feather to wreak revenge. It all sounds suitably overwrought.

Apart from that, we haven't the foggiest on how the actual battle system will work yet, but we do have scans, which you can find beyond the break.

DS Daily: Overabundance and dearth

Water is pretty.The number of DS games given stateside release is now probably beyond 500 (we'd count up all the entries here but we're too lazy), but as in college campuses around the country, diversity can be a tricky beast. We've seen some great titles across the board, of course, but haven't you felt that the DS was a bit lacking in some areas, while watered down in others?

The most obvious absentees are the general JRPG and fighting genres. RPG experiences themselves aren't too difficult to come by, but standard fare (outside of remakes) is a bit harder to find. By and large the best fighting game for the DS, Jump Superstars, has never even been localized. When it comes to puzzle and racing genres, however, we're flooded with low-polish trash. Which genres do you feel are over- or under-represented, and of which would you like to see more?
