World Of Goo: The Highest Rated Game Ever?

100°
323w ago - What would you say is the greatest game of all time? Super Mario World? The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time? Halo? If so, you'd be wrong, if you were to believe Metacritic.

So this is just strange. The new WiiWare game, World of Goo, which was released to fairly little hype this past Monday, is now apparently one of the highest rated games of all time, according to Metacritic.

One look at the Metacritic page for the game will show that the game has an overall reviews average of 97, with three perfect scores and three that are in the '90s range. This puts the game in a position where it could actually take the title of "highest rated game of all time".

I haven't bought WoG yet, but seeing as how there's a free demo for the pc version available here, there's really no excuse for anyone to miss out.

It seems insane that this game would top the likes of Super Mario Galaxy, so I'm sure that once more reviews come in the score average will go down, (there are ALWAYS haters) but it's extremely interesting that this game has blown every other game released this year, including the oft-hyped LittleBigPlanet, completely out of the water score-wise.

Rumor: World Favorite Nintendo Wii is going HD

50°
325w ago - The world's most popular games console is being upgraded. Japanese games giant Nintendo is developing a high-definition model of its Wii console, which has sold more than 30 million units globally.

Though no official announcement has yet been made despite numerous rumors, games developers in Japan have been given top secret briefings on the next-generation console, thought to be named Wii HD.

The new console will support high-definition graphics, bringing it in line with Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 and will likely debut in late 2011.

The Wii HD is also rumored to feature a high-capacity hard drive for the storage and streaming of digital content such as music and video. Meanwhile, Nintendo has unveiled its new hand-held games machine, the DSi.

A successor to the company's hit Nintendo DS portable games unit (pictured left), the new DSi has two cameras and can play digital music.

It is 12 per cent slimmer than the current model DS and has a slightly bigger screen at 3.25 inches. An SD slot has also been added for storage of photos and, potentially, games. The DSi will be released in Japan on November 1 and cost about $225, but it will not be in shops here until...

Call Of Duty: World at War BETA to be XBox 360 and PC only

300°
326w ago - Sorry PS3 gamers, but according to Treyarch and the people at Activision, the upcoming online multiplayer BETA for Call of Duty: World at War will be for XBox 360 and PC owners only.

For those of you who remember, Infinity Ward pulled a similar move last year by hosting the Call of Duty 4 BETA only on the XBox 360. After speaking with a Activision representative, I was told that the reasoning behind doing an XBox 360 and PC BETA was primarily due to increased server and connectivity data.

"We are running the BETA only on the XBox 360 and PC," said the representative. He continued then to point out that most BETAs on the PS3 are run by first party anyways, and if Treyarch runs their testing on the XBox 360 and PC they acquire more data on servers and connectivity.

Personally, I think that it's imperative to sufficiently test all networks a game will be running on, and that includes the PlayStation Network. Yes, if you were to run the BETA solely on the PlayStation 3, you'd acquire less data than a 360 BETA, but why not have a BETA span multiple platforms? Is it that much more work?

What do you think about this debacle? Let us know in the comments section below.
