» Nintendo have finally announced a date for the EU release of Metroid Pinball. It’s the 22nd June, over 18 months since it was released in the States. Twats.
» Activision have announced a new Spider-Man game, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe. There’s even a website which suggests it’s based on the movie and the Green Goblin plays a part, although there are no concrete facts yet. Vague.
» Fender have joined up with EA for Rock Band. The guitar controller will be a Fender Stratocaster, and you’ll also be able to use Fender amps. I’d have preferred a Telecaster for real rock action, and I’d take Marshall amps over Fender’s any time, but you can’t have everything. Roland and BOSS have also joined in for some effects pedal action. Hopefully you’ll be able to use a DS-1. Distortion.
