First on the list of our previews, and reviews, is the world exclusive DJ Hero trailer.
The game features over 80 new mixes never before heard, and is also said to release with a Jay-Z and Eminem (rappers) version. This special edition will come with both artists works, an exclusive controller, DJ stand, and a metal carrying case.
Along with that, Guitar Hero 5 has been slated for a September 1st release, one week before Rock Band: Beatles.
A MAG Preview, which was a multiplayer war game for PS3 on steroids has been posted by G4, along with their Bionic Commando and Punch-Out Wii reviews. MAG has been described as massively amazing, because while featuring a command system similar to “commander controls battalions who control soldiers” and allowing each player to gain the experience to play every command position, the game also boasts a 256 person multiplayer online mode. PS3 fans, be very excited.
Bionic Commando has become quite a let down among the gaming community. While some kind of combat system exists, and the new bionic arms works well, the game lacks any sense of open world gameplay, often keeping you on a narrow track. When ever you run off of this track, you are greeted by a magical radioactive area while kills you almost instantly. Most people feel that Bionic Commando should be more open, because that is what the equipment in the game applies.
Punch-Out isn’t for the light gamers either. The first Punch-Out for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was extremely hard with each character becoming increasingly stronger, bigger, and more clever with every round. While the visuals have been completely revamped and new characters added, the game remains the same with it’s original characters, ever challenging you until you burst into a frenzy of random punches that eventually lead to a sweaty hand and a broken TV. You may also attach the Wii Balance Board to preform dodges in the game.
HTC’s new TouchPro2 has also been previewed by PocketNow.com with somewhat giddy joy from it’s reviewer.
And lastly, the new Zune HD has been handled and seems like it’s got its touch screen correct.
