Three NIS Games to Coming to DS!

If you’re a fan of tactical RPG’s, then you’re going to love the following story. NIS is bringing 3 new titles that are squarely focused on this generations #1 selling system, the Nintendo DS.

Check out the press releases below:

Rhapsody A Musical Adventure was first released on the Playstation in 2000 as a rare Atlus game that was later reprinted again in 2005. Rhapsody was the first true musical RPG that involved many various scenes of characters singing about their plans and what they were doing. You controlled a female character named Cornet Espoire, and guided her through her misadventures to find a passionate relationship. However the game play is a bit more like Pokémon since you had to collect various characters and so on and so forth. Although the singing parts are more comical then very serious.

Disgaea: The hour of Darkness was another game that was brought to the U.S. by Atlus, and it was released for the Playstation 2 back in August of 2003. Disgaea follows the exploits of two characters a young demon prince named Laharl, and his “loyal” vassal Etna. This was a truely amazing game back in the day that had multiple endings depending on how you played the game, and wither or not you went to specific areas at certain times. I also find it pretty amazing that it is being ported to the DS, and can’t wait to see what they changed.

A Witch’s Tale is Nippons newest game in a while, and it has been said that it is the first Action RPG they are making. All combat actions in the game are controlled by the stylus, so when you run, stab, swipe, and use spells you are expected to execute them with the stylus. There wasn’t a lot of details released about this game. However, what was released was that it is a fairy tale with a dark twist which involves a 1,000-year-old legend about a tribe of powerful witches that used to live beneath our world. One day they invaded, but a mystical girl named Alice used their own magic against them and sealed them away. However, the Queen of the witchs may still be active underground, plotting her return.

I am very pleased to see these 3 titles coming to the DS and I cannot wait until their release. I actually missed out on Disgaea so I am most eager to play that one. More good stuff for DS as usual. Which one are you guys most excited about?

The Conduit Game Manual

I think the gaming community, (mainly the ones that love Nintendo), breathed a sigh of relief when The Conduit was announced for Nintendo Wii. The title looks extremely promising to say the least and has given hope to the hardcore gamers that purchased Nintendo’s 5th console.

The Conduit truly looks fantastic and we have what appears to be the titles game manual below. Check it out and let us know what you guys think!

Boom Blox Considered a “Failure”

Honestly I hate to report news like this but apparently gamers don’t want to listen to reviews.

The critically acclaimed and highly entertaining Boom Blox has apparently only sold 60,000 units and is considered a failure among the gaming community. The title received rave reviews among every facet of media but still failed to sell a decent amount of games. I have to say that I am deeply saddened by this news and I really hope some gamers read this post and go purchase this title today.

In case you were wondering, we did a review on this excellent title that you can read here.
