226w ago - Today Backbone Entertainment's Designer Kyle Vincent Tunison has annonced that Military Madness: Nectaris is coming to PS3 via Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: I am extremely excited to be here today to re-announce Military Madness: Nectaris to the world! I say "re-announce" because the game was first brought to the public eye several months ago, but at the time, the game could only be talked about in terms of bullet points.
Now, I'm the lucky guy that gets to blow the lid off of the latest incarnation of the greatest turn-based strategy franchise of all time.
Believe it or not, the original Military Madness (called Nectaris in Japan) was released all the way back in 1989 for a magical little system called the TurboGrafx-16. While the system wasn't all that successful, the game itself became a cult hit. Why? Not only did it introduce gamers in the States to the exciting turn-based strategy genre... but it was both really fun and really deep (and thus ends our three sentence history lesson).
As mentioned above, Military Madness is a turn-based strategy game. This means you and your opponent(s) take turns moving your squads around the battlefield and having them attack each other. There are over 20 different types of units that can make up your squads, each with...

Of course, you don't get these details all the time. That's why you have a tendency to go off the deep end and type so fast that "the" becomes "teh." -- but that's not going to happen today. We have inside info for you to share.
That's right, the team behind Monster Madness: EX -- a SouthPeak Interactive title that has you taking four friends through a top-down adventure filled with monsters and madness -- dropped into our lives and is ready to dish about the story you'll be playing through in 2008.
Enough talk! Let's do this.
Ahh suburbia, white picket fences, Aunt Bee's apple pie cooling on the windowsill and some good old fashion... zombie hunting? Enter the world of Monster Madness: EX - Zombies, Werewolves, Vampires and Demons are invading a small suburban town wreaking havoc and mayhem along the way. It's up to you as circumstances cast you as one of the four heroes; Zack, Andy, Carrie and Jennifer. The madness all begins at Zack's house...
Our protagonist Zack, a total neo-geek dweeb, is always helping the other kids with...
325w ago - When Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia launched on the Xbox 360 and PC earlier this year, two major sore points for reviewers were the game's controls and camera. Those are just two aspects of the game Southpeak Interactive is looking to improve with its freshly announced version of the game for the PlayStation 3.
Set for release early next year, Monster Madness EX will bring the game to Sony's console with overhauled controls and a tweaked camera, as well as minigames and other "newly built-in extras." The game is being developed by Psyonix, a North Carolina-based studio that has previously worked on the PC shooter Red Orchestra, as well as Unreal Tournament 2004's Onslaught game type.
