Advance Wars 2 Info

Get ready gamers, Advance Wars 2 is headed our way! Here are some big changes:

– Game has an entirely new crew.
– “realistic” graphical approach taken, no more cartoon-like visuals
– new combat animations
– Bike infantry unit added

I love the decision to go with a more realistic graphical approach as I feel that it will give the game a more serious tone and actually help sales (not that it needed any) here in the States. What do you guys think?

Bioshock to Wii?

Get ready gamers!! Apparently according to analyst Mike Hickey of Janco Partners, Take-Two is considering to expand its Bioshock ‘series’, which will likely include editions of the game coming to Wii, PS3 and even handhelds by the fiscal year 2009.

Given the success this game has seen, branching out on other consoles is a no brainer; I am just really excited it may show up on Wii.
