Rumors of New Castlevania for the 3DS

The past 48 hours have been a series of buzzings about a supposed new Castlevania game for the Nintendo 3DS handheld. Website GoNintendo’s rumor mill has been churning out speculation about the supposed handheld title, called Castlevania: Mirror of Fate. According to these rumors, the game will be developed by Castlevania: Lords of Shadow producer Davis Cox, will be 2D, will be a part of the Lords storyline, and will be co-operative play with 2 starting characters.

Cox himself, who took the Castlevania reigns starting with Lords from previous long-time producer Koji “IGA” Igarashi, is currently keeping tight lipped on whether or not any of the rumors are true, as he is prodded by obviously curious Castlevania fans on his Twitter.

Konami has gone on record saying that there will be a Castlevania reveal at this year’s E3 conference, though most believed it to mean the official drop of a Lords of Shadow 2 game. If rumors prove true, it might be a dual-wield info drop for Castlevania this summer.

The Simpsons Arcade Game – Keep Playing LIVE!

Don’t have a cow, man.

The Simpsons Arcade game finally invades Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network and we took advantage of the four player simultaneous play. Instead of the normal review of the game you’re used to seeing on Keep Playing, this is an entire play through. Also, you’ll hear running commentary from our (sometimes) podcast lineup of Adam, Ernie, and Zero along side myself. We’re going to dish on Simpsons trivia, point out some relevant gameplay facts, and make crass jokes.

Enjoy! This episode has a 40 minute run time, so I’ll save you the trouble and let you know the inevitable Terminator reference is at 7:58.

Lost Classics: The Konami Code (Various)

In this day and age of achievements and online leaderboards, the cheat code is a dying aspect of console gaming. However, back in the day, secret codes were king. Whether it was a debug mode for Sonic, a stage select for Vice: Project Doom, or a sound test in Ninja Gaiden, discovering a cheat code was like opening a Christmas gift. However, there was one code that more than any other, would be remembered by everyone.

Lost Classics: Yie Ar Kung-Fu (Arcade, MSX, NES, Xbox 360 Game Room, Xbox Live Arcade, Game Boy Advance)

It’s incredibly primitive by today’s standards, but Yie Ar Kung Fu is the grandfather of the whole fighting game genre. Taking control of Oolong, a generic Chinese fighter, you take on 11 different opponents, each with thier own abilities. Although you can’t play as the other fighters, the matches have a lot of strategy and variety. With Oolong being able to perform 16 different attacks, the game was surprisingly deep given it’s age, It was ported to several older systems, and updated on various gaming download services. The Xbox Live arcade port has remixed graphics. The Game Boy Advance version, included as part of Konami’s Arcade Advanced complication, has 2 secret opponents which can be unlocked via (what else?) the Konami code. It also has a two player mode in which players can play as any of the game’s fighters. If you like fighting games, you’ll definitely want to check out this Lost Classic.
