Nintendo Revolution Games Galore

Yes a day everyone has been waiting for. Finally some solid announcements of Revolution games. And some details on a few of them. First we'll start with Tony Hawk: Downhill Jam. In the latest issue of Nintendo Power they have confirmed this game exclusively for the DS and Revolution. And also there is a description of some of the controls and features in the game. Check it out and the link:

Tony Hawk: Downhill Jam details for Revolution: The game is an exclusive for Nintendo Revolution and DS. It states “…By using the Revolution controller’s motion-sensitivity, racers will be able to turn and boost without touching a button. The game will also feature button combinations to pull off tricks that recall the controls for the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Underground titles…” A full feature with screenshots and more details will be available in the July Issue. The game is developed by Toy for Bob and published by Activision. Four Player Split-Screen multiplayer feature. Eight new racers. Eight huge environments are real-world locations (includes Machu Picchu in the Andes and the hills of San Francisco). Boost Meter in game, thrust the controller forward for boost.

Yea it's going back to the old controlls of the Pro Skaters. Thank god cause nowadays just too confusing. And also the addition of boost seems pretty cool. I was always skeptical of how they would find a way to fit Tony Hawk accordingly with the revcon but Activision has done it quite nicely. Way to go. Also in the issue of Nintendo Power they have confrimed that Bob Ross: Painting for Joy is an official title coming to the Revolution. Yea I guess. And here is the link you can find all of that info from. Click Here!!! Also THQ has announced to Revo games as it is bringing to Nick Series over to the Revolution. Those being Spongebob Squarepants: Creature From the Krust Krab and Avatar; The Last Airbender. Now can't say I'm too excited about this but all around support is just great and we have to support all ages and this is a great way to get in those younger ages. Here's the link to that one. Spongebob Lovers Welcome Also Sega has said they will unveil a title tomorrow to hit off their "Road to E3". Well sounds great to me. Now I have no idea if this will be a revo title but strong rumors and sources suggest that the game or games will be making it's way to the Revolution. Sega Title And finally DragonBall Z: Tenkaichi 2 has been officially announced by Atari. And it gives a brief description of the game. Check it out So that's a lot of revo games announced and confirmed. Maybe not some of the games I would buy but it is getting developer support in and showing that it is willing to support all ages, all genders, and all countries. Something Nintendo has been trying to push. So stay tuned for more Pre-E3 stuff like this. It can only get better until E3 blows our minds. Be prepared for many things. Zucas

This is not what I wanted to see. Games like Spongebob and Dragonball Z are not going to help Nintendo, rather hurt it. Let's hope Ubisoft and EA go full force on developing for the Revolution. More games like Red Steel please.

Well no game can hurt a console. I mean the diverse of age, gender, and genre you have in a game the more customers you will get. So maybe we as a whole may not like these games but Japanese gamers and younger gamers will go wild about these games. I mean wouldn't you say it's better to support all crowds than just one.
