FAIRFAX, VA--OverClocked ReMix today released its 17th album, Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business. The album consists of 33 arrangements of composer David Wise's original score to the 1995 Nintendo game developed by Rare, Donkey Kong Country 2. Wise himself also contributed the album's closing track with an arrangement of DKC2's credits theme, featuring collaboration and live performances from former Rare colleagues Grant Kirkhope (Donkey Kong Land 2) and Robin Beanland (Donkey Kong Country). The album is available for free download at http://dkc2.ocremix.org. Serious Monkey Business is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo or Rare. Over 30 artists participated in honoring Wise in this two-disc project which consists of nearly two and a half hours of music. "This project is, first and foremost, a tribute to Mr. Wise - to have him contribute a track was a real honor," said Jeremy Waters, co-director and creator of the album. Artists, including Wise, were given complete creative freedom to reimagine the game's music in new ways, resulting in diverse genres including new age, trance, metal, orchestral, pop, IDM, rhumba and merengue. "The artists have poured hundreds, if not thousands, of hours into the music," stated co-director Wesley Cho. "I like to see people explore the possibilities offered by music of various genres, and I think we have succeeded in putting together a melting pot album with a lot of accessibility."
I suggest you all check it out! You can download the album at the official site here!
Nintendo also announced that Super Mario Galaxy 2 comes out May 23rd!
Anyway the news ... this is important for Europeans... is that Desperate Struggle will have two different versions released in Europe. Mild and Extreme - names probably not included in title anywhere. The Mild version will pretty much be what Europeans remember from NMH, enemies exploding into ash and dropping $LB everywhere. The Extreme version will include blood. Will it be lots of blood? Will it be The crazy blood-fest that North America had the pleasure of swimming through? It hasn't been really "confirmed", but there still might be a few differences between Extreme-Euro and North American versions, check out what Suda51 says:
We won't be able to make the same game for all territories, for Europe, we're going to release two versions. One extreme version, and one with less violence"... With No More Heroes 2 we want to please the fans too. I want the European users to be able to experience the extreme version... When I first had the concept, I had both the bloody version and the milder version in mind, So when I worked on the US version, it wasn't a problem for me to make, but when I made the Japanese version, I needed to rethink it a little bit. But I did both at the same time.
So how-a-bout that? Everyone is happy! Europeans can get blood on their hands and Ace can keep clean! Huzzah!
The plot centers around the aftermath of GUILT, and the game is set for release in North America on July 1. This announcement makes me wonder if Europe will ever get New Blood...
Check after the break for ten screenshots and the debut trailer.
Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2
Well if you don't know by know, then get educated: Manhunt 2 was rated down from AO to M based off of the way the stealth kills are obscured in game. You may remember saying that I thought it improved the games flavor as opposed to destroying it. Anyway I got 3 new videos that we can peek at showing off the new stealth kills and exactly how they look...
"Read More" if you are 17 years old or older for the videos, if your not at least 17 then you shouldn't worry about getting this game anyway.
One last trailer has been released by Rockstar Games for their latest controversial title, Manhunt 2. A title I have been looking forward to since I first heard of it's production. Game one was amazing, seriously, if you are a fan of stories in games, they don't get much more unique than Manhunt. Suda 51 and his team Grasshopper Manufacture, I think are the only rivals to Rockstar in story and plot when it comes to their Manhunt franchise.
Anyway for the 17 years old or older audience who wants to dig the latest trailer for Manhunt 2 "Read More"...
The official Manhunt 2 website has had huge upgrades lately. There are downloads (like an awesome screensaver!) and pictures icons and all that, but whats neat is when you take the virtual tour of the Dixmor Asylum Ward and Patient Files (flash needed). The ward has alot of files that are hard to read, but offer really deep preview into the story and what went on before you woke up nuts in the game. You also get two really well put together (officialy voice cast) study sessions with the nurse and the two main characters of the game Leo Kasper, and you Daniel Lamb. They are interactive to play a number of different tapes of each character. If you are older than 18 I HIGHLY recomend checking out the page, they did an awesome job with the entire presentation. A REALLY awesome job.
A few updates that have been sitting in the internet, not getting many reports. So I said "hey, alot of Nplussers love Manhunt, why not bring them this news"? - So here I am bringing you some not-terribly-new footage, but probably new to most of you, along with some terribly new concept art. It is advised that you are 17 or older to view the Gameplay trailer or view some of the concept art. I trust you all are using your best judgement.
Read More for the good stuff...
I don't know how many of you played Manhunt on the PS2 or the XBOX, but I did, and I loved it. I, along with my cousin, played through every level obtaining five stars on the brutal "hardcore" setting. - Anyway my gloating is besides the point, the point is, that the super-ultra-massiv-hardcore killing game has a sequal comming out on psp, ps2, and Wii. This isn't exactly new news though, we already have reported on it. However today I will be showing you a second teaser video, as well as screenshots. The second video, which can be found when you click "read more", does show off much more than the original trailer does, which will also be included for easy referencing.
