Red Steel to feature "Free-Hand" swordplay!

Monday, August 28, 2006
Ubisoft has just confirmed that Red Steel has seen a major rehaul in gameplay. The sword fighting in the game will not be entirely free-hand. In previous builds of the game, the player only could choose pre-set sword manuvers. Now, any swing with the remote will be unique. This is a major breakthrough for the game. BDC will bring you more info as we get closer to the launch date.

Zelda: Twilight Princess controls changed!

Monday, August 21, 2006
A big changed has been made to the play mechanics of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Until now, sword movements were controlled using the B button. According to GoNintendo, Link will now swing his sword when you move the Wiimote. Hopefully this works well and I can't wait to play the full version of the game later this fall.

Rumor: Sonic to be playable in Super Smash Bros: Brawl?

Sunday, August 20, 2006
It looks like Nintendo is supposedly working on getting atleast one other non-Nintendo character into the game. Some guys on the official Nintendo board have been hinting that the character is Sonic. Not much evidence to help this rumor, but it still sounds like a great idea.

Nintendo confirms free WiFi play on Wii.

While we at BDC assumed that WiFi would work on the Wii exactly like it does on the DS, we never had it confirmed offically from Nintendo...until now. This means that WiiFi (sorry about the bad pun) will be free exactly like WiFi on the DS. Just a note however, this does not mean that Virtual Console games and "bonus" content will also be free.

Screenshot of lost SSB:M level.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006
Here is an old screen shot from "The Nintendo Difference" video that has been floating around the internet. In this shot, you see a finished looking level from Super Smash Bros. Melee that never made it into the game.

This is the only shot of the level I oculd find. If anyone has any clue as to what became of this level, let me know via a comment. It looked like an interesting enough level.

Thanks to Crazyforkillua for the story idea.
EDIT: If you want to see the level in the video, check out the source link below and watch about 42 seconds into the video.

Long Red Steel gameplay video.

Saturday, August 05, 2006

I guess this video was put together by G4TV during E3, but I hadn't seen it yet. The video shows a lot of the beginning tutorials in the game and gives a lot of insight into the sword mechanics in the game. If you check out later in the video, you can see some great shooting action in the streets of Japan.

Super Mario Strikers sequel to be announced in Germany?

Nintendo of Europe sources have told IGN that a Super Mario Strikers sequel coming to the Wii. According to IGN, the game will be announced at the Leipzig Game Conference in about 2 weeks.

This Strikers sequel is one of possibly 5 Wii titles Nintendo is rumored to annouce at the upcoming game show.

If you never played Super Mario Strikers, it is a face-paced Mario Sports title featuring some of the best known names in the Mario universe. The game didn't really recieve the sales or recognition it deserved because it was released so late in the Gamecube's lifecycle.

Mario and Zelda: Big Band Live

Tuesday, August 01, 2006
Here is a video from a 2003 concert in Japan. The concert was titled "Mario and Zelda: Big Band Live". The concert featured several Japanese music artists playing our favorite Zelda and Mario songs in a bluegrass style. The music in this video is fantastic and a must hear for every Nintendo fanboy. This is a long video, but a great listen. I suggest maybe just keep the browser open and listen for a while.

EDIT: If anyone would like mp3 files of each song in the video individually, I found them here.

Leaked Resident Evil Wii screen shot?

Wonder what the Resident Evil series will look like on the Wii? This image was supposedly leaked from Comic-Con. Not much is known about the screen's orgin besides being taken by someone who saw it at Comic-Con. If this is actually Resident Evil for the Wii, it is interesting that Capcom decided to go back to a prerendered backgroud with a stuck camera view after the success of RE4.

What do you think of this picture? Is it a fake? Be sure to give your input by leaving us a comment.
