Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is set for release tomorrow. I preordered my copy of the game (to get a free T-Shirt and free overnight shipping) so I’ll be sure to post my impressions of it as soon as I have a chance. Other major gaming websites have already posted reviews of the game and they have basically said that fans of Tenchu will probably still like this one, but nobody else.

Regardless of what reviewers say, I’ve found the bare bones stealth gameplay in Tenchu to be fun and amusing, and while I wasn’t pleased with the controls in the second one, the game itself was still good. The graphics do look terribly dated by today’s standards, but I’ve never cared much about graphics.

So starting from deadly ninjas, there’s really only one way for this news blurb to go if it’s to cover the whole spectrum.

That’s right. Silly Penguin Racing.

I’ve uploaded a couple of videos of Pen Pen TriIcelon for the Dreamcast. You can find them here. One is the game’s intro movie, and the other is a short gameplay video. Both of these were filmed about a week ago when the Baku Baku and Twinkle Star Sprites videos were filmed. So you won’t find them anywhere else on the internet.

In other news, it’s Valentine’s Day. What better way to celebrate than with Feel the Magic XY ♥ XX? I finally finished Hell difficulty, which unlocked quite a surprise. I was expecting a couple of new outfits, but I was not expecting them to be the lack of any outfit at all. That’s right – Sega has implemented nude mode in the game. You can see a picture or a brief video of it in the forums if you are so inclined. It’s really quite amusing.
