N Other News…

A few years ago, at Slamdance, we were introduced to a game we liked very much, called Rumble Box. A beat-em-up game with characters made of cubes and spheres, cel-shaded graphics and a cool mechanic whereby the parts of your bested opponents assist you in your climb to the top — what’s not to like? […]

N+ Sighting in Tokyo

27 Oct / by: M&R / 5 comments / tags :

We recently ran into several copies of N+ (both DS and PSP) in Tokyo (at import stores in Akihabara), and noted that some of them had sold when we revisited the stores later on. We had assumed N+ DS/PSP would, like N+ XBLA, be sold worldwide — with any luck that will happen someday. For […]

To our surprise, several gamers who post on the Xbox forum had finished the SP levels within hours (and they’re definitely not easy!) — congrats, guys, your ninja skillz are honestly amazing.

Technical Difficulties…

05 Sep / by: M&R / 3 comments /

Sorry about that, everyone, it appears our webhost is still having some technical difficulties. The site and blog appear to be back and finally functioning properly again, so the contesque is once again open. Because of the idiotic downtime, we will be extending the contesque for one day, and adding some new prizes to the […]

Originally posted by M&R | July 23, 2008 The first N+ Downloadable Levelpack releases today (it’s up right now!), which is really exciting. We tried to make everyone happy: there are 150 “easier” Singleplayer levels, which should ease the pain of those who have found N+ too difficult, and 50 Co-op Multiplayer levels, which should […]
