Donkey Kong Country Returns Review

Coming off their hot streak with the Metroid Prime series, Retro Studios tries their hand at rebooting another famous Nintendo mascot: Donkey Kong.  While not adding much to the formula, Retro Studios keeps what made the original Donkey Kong Country games great, while simultaneously building upon it and perfecting it.  What the game lacks in innovation, it makes up for in sheer fun, brutal difficulty (in the most positive ways, of course), and beautiful scenery, resulting in a game that bests its beloved counterparts.

Behind-the-scenes | Metroid: Other M

Once in a while Battery Acid gets some pretty juicy stuff to report about and today I have something awesome to show you guys!  For a while now I’ve known some small bits of info related to the upcoming Nintendo game, Metroid: Other M.  I’ve been talking with an insider for some time about what’s up with the development.

I’m not saying I know much about the game though.  In reality I’m about as clueless as those outside of the major media that attended the recent Media Summit.  What I do know though is that at least the cutscenes have changed from what we’ve seen from the E3 trailer, according to my inside source.

I don’t have much media to show you at the moment but let’s take a look at what presents I have today!

Co-op Mega Man? That sounds familiar…

As some of you may know Mega Man 10 has recently been announced for WiiWare with the added twist of being co-op.  When I heard this news I remembered how bad of a player I was for not completing Mega Man 9 but I soon remembered that the rumor of a two player Mega Man sounded eerily familiar.
