Ho-Oh

Earlier today a Japanese television show was going over some Pokemon news, showcasing some interesting looking props.  These props were in the form of pokeballs, with one being gold and the other silver.  What does this mean?  Well couple that with the fact that they announced that a new Pokemon game will be coming soon and I think we can draw a conclusion: Pokemon Gold and Silver are going to be remade!

This is great news, as I thought that the Gold/Silver/Crystal line were the best in the Pokemon series.  Debuting back in 2002, Pokemon Gold and Silver were a big accomplishment not only in the game series, but for role playing games as well.  Between the combination of two worlds (Kanto and Johto), 100 new pokemon, and in-game battle tower, Gold and Silver were some of the most lengthy Game Boy games at the time.

The big question though is what would they call it?  The Pokemon Red and Blue remakes were called LeafGreen and FireRed respectively, so what should these two be called?  GoldYellow and SilverGrey?  Yea I know these ideas don’t sound great, but then that’s why I’m not paid to develop these games.  Nevertheless, look forward to the finalized announcement later this month.

Nostalgic Music 5

3 05 2009

Today on Nostalgic Music, we go back to the nineties to relive the music of a Nintendo classic: Donkey Kong Country 2.  DKC2 had some of the best video game music for its time, with a unique mix of mystery and imagery.  This particular track from the game is from Stickerbush Symphony, a level many players will remember as frustrating.  The music was anything but though, so enjoy.
