Why Animal Crossing Isn’t Just for Pedophiles
After the recent "news report" that Animal Crossing City Folk is a breeding ground for pedophiles, we decided to set the record straight.

In other news…

Batman Gets a Teen Rating

Yes, you have heard correctly. Batman: Arkham Asylum has received a Teen rating by the ERSB. But why?

Well, simply put, Batman does not kill one bad guy in this game. Not one. Yes, I know, Batman isn’t supposed to kill anyone. But, come on, this is the “DARK” Knight. Oh well, one can’t dwell on this. He is still a superhero, and that is what Batman does.

Even without anyone losing their precious life, Batman seems like he will still manage to be pretty violent and kick the butts of many, many bad guys. The game is due out this summer for the PS3, 360, and PC.

Bionic Commando Gets Release Date

When you hear the words “Bionic Commando,” most of you will instantly think of a classic game you played as a kid on the NES. Well, it’s time to relive that experience “new school” style, because the current-gen game has received its release date.

The game will be released for 360 and PS3 on May 19th in the US and May 23rd in the UK.

Boxing Game Announced for iPhone/Touch

With all the applications and games available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, it has become a very popular video game system. With that said, games are being developed left and right, and the newest is Touch KO.

Touch KO is a boxing game, inspired by Fight Night, and is to be released on the iPhone and iPod Touch. The game is due out at the 2nd quarter of this year.

Aren’t you just loving all the boxing games being released this year? I look forward to beating the crap out of some of you.

Pachter says We’ve seen the last of consoles

Michael Pachter, Webush Morgan analyst, has made another big statement today, saying that this generation of consoles will be the last. WHAT?!?

No more consoles, that doesn’t even make sense, or does it? The recent news about the OnLive “box” and service is causing quite a stir recently, and now this statement definitely has a lot of gamers wondering.

Pachter said, “I think we’ve seen the last generation of consoles.” He then went on to say that third party publishers just aren’t going to support a new console. Woah, that’s some serious talk right there.

Of course, we will just have to wait and see what is to come for the consoles. I can’t imagine life without console wars. That’s just despicable.

Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Yes, it’s the new Zelda.

You have to save the big news for last, and it certainly is big news. Nintendo has announced a new Zelda game for the Nintendo DS.

The new Zelda game is called Legend of Zelda: Spirit tracks, and looks very much like the Phantom Hourglass game. There seems to be a train involved, and it is said to be very similar to the boat allowing you to shoot cannonballs at people.

Ah, Link, we have missed you.
