It looks like the guys over at LittleBigPlanetoid have been busy using their imagination over the Christmas period, making a list of great costumes they’d like to see in LittleBigPlanet (one of them being above). They drempt up 20 different characters/franchises they’d like to see made into costumes and, well, check em out for yourself.

How cool would it be to have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in LBP. Answer: Very Cool.

Yet another 2D shooter makes it’s way onto the PlayStation Store and, whilst that might sound like a bad thing, it seems to be going quite well. These games are giving players a good selection within the genre, which is great (at least we’re not being charged to play UNO or something). So, ok on with the review.

For those who don’t know Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer is a 2D, side scrolling, sci-fi shooter from EastAsiaSoft. Released on the PC in December last year, how does this PSN port hold up? Hit the jump to find out. Continue reading

Ok so for our first BIG (and I mean big) rumor since we’ve returned is a pretty damn good one. Capcom’s John Diamonon hinted at something potentially cool. In his most recent post (which can be seen here) he writes:

Oh yeah, there’s also a big (sentence deleted by Capcom and SCEA PR ninjas)….Can you believe it? Wow, how can you not be excited about that? I’m just glad that I was finally able to talk about it. It’s been a long time coming but I’m ecstatic that it’s actually going to happen.

Now of course this actually means nothing, although when a commenter asked:

I must say that it is awesome that you announced Dead Rising for the PSN, right?

To which John replied:

Who announced it? Me? I don’t think so! )

Well, because of the smiley face the internet has exploded with speculation that Dead Rising is, in fact, finally going to be released on PS3 and possibly via the PlayStation Store. Hopefully this is true, i’ve been waiting to get my hands on that game for a while. come on Capcom do the right thing.

Over the autumn/winter period there was a hell of a lot of great releases on the PlayStation Store, but a lot of games seemed to get pushed to one side, with gamers favoring the delights of the bigger retail games rather than some of the gems on Sony’s store. Astro Tripper is one such game. Continue reading

It’s been one hell of a year and there’s been some really amazing games released in 2008 and I feel that XeNonX should honour these fine pieces of art (yeah, I said it) in the first annual ‘XeNonX Game Of The Year Awards’. I will post the nominees for each category now, but due to complications the winners will not be announced until early January (that’s my fault). Each genre (except RPG’s because of the lack of them) have a category, which all have five nominations, except for the main award which has ten. Hit the jump for the nominations. Continue reading

After a whole five days worth of break the XeNonX crew are back to provide our daily commentary on the day’s news. We’ll be posting a few things over the next few days, but we won’t be fully up and running until after the new year.

Hope you all had a good Christmas and it’s good to be back.

Hey people, it’s time for the XeNonX cerew to go on break. Although we are people of the internet, we need to spend time with loved ones, open presents and gorge on food too ya know.

We’ll be back on December 29th with our Game Of The Year Nominees and will be fully up and running in the new year. Of course if anything major occurs during our time off (like Microsoft going bump, Wii’s killing Miyamoto) then of course we’ll be there covering it for you guys.

Other than that, i’d just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays) and we’ll see you soon.

Bye for now.
