March NPD Figures In

April 16, 2010

March seen the release of some fantastic games. Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, New Pokémon games and more which gave gamers plenty of choice regarding what to spend their hard earned cash on. Last month’s NPD figures shows that God of War III was the most popular choice.

However, that’s only for the one individual platform. When you combine the sales of Final Fantasy XIII on the PS3 and X360 it comes out ahead, as with Bad Company 2. Then if you count Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver as one game they should take the top spot. Take a look at the data:

1. God of War III (PS3) – 1,100,000
2. Pokémon SoulSilver (DS) – 1,020,000
3. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) – 828,200
4. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Xbox 360) – 825,500
5. Pokémon HeartGold (DS) – 761,200
6. Final Fantasy XIII (Xbox 360) – 493,900

Fan-Based Pokémon MMO Shut Down

April 4, 2010

You know what Nintendo really need to do? Make a Pokémon MMO. Seriously, if it was done right it would have so much potential and it could be amazing. There was a fan-based MMO based on the games titled Pokénet which has now unfortunately faced Nintendo’s wrath and is no more. I never even got a chance to try it out.

Pokénet wasn’t finished and was still in development but it could still be played in its beta stage. One of the programmers behind the project told Joystiq that over 7,000 players had logged time into the MMO where they could be Pokémon trainers and “could even catch, evolve, trade,”.

It seemed to all be going along well which makes it all the worse when Nintendo shut it down. It’s understandable but I still wish I had got to try it myself. Check out some gameplay footage after the jump. Read the rest of this entry ?
