Konami launched a new casual rhythm game on the iPhone's App Store today. Titled "RhymePlayer," it basically tasks players to tap the lyrics of songs in time with the music. Not exactly super involved, but it does feature a handful of well-known artists. Here's the full track list:
Lady Gaga - "Just Dance"
Lifehouse - "First Time"
Jackson 5 - "ABC"
Bel Biv DeVoe - "Poison" (Woo!)
The Cover Girls - "Show Me"
Konami passed along 3 codes for giveaway to promote the game, so head on over to the MTV Multiplayer twitter feed for a chance to nab one.
While I fully admit that I am not the target audience for a game like "Walk It Out," I can't possibly comprehend the tween that would be overjoyed to see this game in the hands of a loving parent or relative. It is a rare specimen of game that would (based on the box art, at least) appeal to exactly no one. That's not to mention the innumerable people in wheelchairs that would just be pissed off just to learn of its existence.
I give you..."Walk It Out," a new game from Konami:
And yes, I am judging a game by its cover. But with a cover like that, it's pretty hard not to.
The original "Silent Hill" is a bona fide classic. It isn't the first example of a survival horror game, but it's one of the best. And it spawned a series that still continues to today, right up to Konami's recently released "Silent Hill: Shattered Memories." A return to the first game's story, "Shattered Memories" allows players to relive the initial trip to that creepy town with new, Wii-powered visuals and a fresh approach to the gameplay.
Nintendo announced its Winter 2010 release lineups today for the Wii and DS, and the list predictably confirmed dates for games like "No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle" and "Mega Man 10," but it also attached dates to "WarioWare D.I.Y." games for both systems. Check out the complete rundown, which includes both "Alice and Wonderland" and "Zombie Panic in Wonderland" titles, after the jump.
Project Natal's price may no longer be a mystery, as a new report predicts an MSRP at launch as low as $50 with a release date in November 2010. The set could be accompanied by as many as 14 games from various big-name publishers, if these details turn out to be legit.
"Twilight" fans are a special breed, whether they're camping out overnight for a panel at Comic-Con or populating a virtual Habbo world. Now, the "Scene It?" series is offering an arena for them to duke it out in gladiatorial fan combat as they put their knowledge of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart love scenes to the test in "Scene It? Twilight."
"Castlevania the Adventure," Konami's 1989 Game Boy debut for their vampire hunter franchise, appears to be next in line for the company's ReBirth treatment. "Gradius ReBirth" and "Contra ReBirth" have already updated classic Konami properties with new looks as WiiWare downloads. Now, Simon Belmont will follow in their footsteps.
