Zordix AB today announces the release of the preview film for Valet Parking 1989TM for the Nintendo DSiWareTM service.

Valet Parking 1989 is a game where you park cars for a living, trying to please both guests and boss to make enough money to buy your dream car! As if life wasn't hard enough with guests and an evil boss riding your back, you have to look out for those pesky pedestrians thinking they own the sidewalks! Clients with no patience and expensive cars in narrow parking lots make for a frantic game with screeching tires skidding between people and concrete. Included is both a story mode and an endless play mode where you simply aim for the high score on each stage.

The game is set in 1989, a time when pink was more pink than it has ever been before, a time when Hollywood celebrities really were celebrities, cars guzzled gasoline like there was no tomorrow and pedestrians weren't a protected and endangered species.

  • Park and return cars to patience impaired guests.
  • One evil bossman! intense and manic gameplay.
  • Set in a neon lit California 1989.
  • 12 story mode levels all with their own challenges.
  • Shoulder pads galore.
  • 30 characters that you may or may not (n)ever have heard of.
  • Mullets, mullets everywhere! 15 songs (quite but not like, anything you heard before)
  • Two words, handcuffs and ice cream.
  • 15 cars, big and small with their own quirks. Never ending play, with or without a teen movie story.
  • A nice ambulance, you will need it!
Ignite the dream, put the pedal to the metal!

The preview can be found at:

02/15/2011 - Marvel vs Capcom 3 Now In Stores
Take on the Fight as Two Worlds Collide to Bring Players the Must-Have Fighting Game of the Year
SAN MATEO, Calif. — February 15, 2011 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, and the legendary Marvel Entertainment, LLC, are proud to announce that Marvel® vs. Capcom ®3: Fate of Two Worlds hits store shelves today in North America for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. 

Players will take control of their favorite characters from the Marvel and Capcom worlds in an out-of-this-world fighting game experience unlike anything seen before it. The battle begins when legendary villains of two universes conspire to wreak havoc across space and time, unleashing a terrible evil that threatens the existence of an entire civilization. In a desperate fight to survive, the Marvel and Capcom universes collide in a battle royale that will determine the fate of two worlds.

The greatest fighters from both worlds clash in teams of three, as players create their dream-teams from the Marvel and Capcom rosters. The battle is brought to life in an innovative comic book art style, powered by Capcom’s MT Framework®, an advanced version of the graphics engine used for Resident Evil® 5. When the fight goes vertical, fighters launch into the air, exchanging aerial combo attacks in a furious burst of color and light. If the pressure is on, players can call on team members for an “assist” attack that will throw off their opponents, or they can tag out their character for a fresh new warrior. The option for streamlined controls makes the fighter a pleasure to play for all skill levels. For those who seek a challenge, players can take their game online and face-off against opponents around the world.

Popular returning characters include Spider-Man, Ryu, Wolverine, Morrigan, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Felicia, Chun-Li, Tron Bonne, Magneto, Storm, Akuma and Doctor Doom. Crimson Viper, Viewtiful Joe and Zero will make their debut in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise. New characters joining the playable cast for the first time in fighting game history include Taskmaster, Haggar, She-Hulk, Chris Redfield, Thor, Trish, Super-Skrull, Amaterasu, Dormammu, Wesker, X-23, Arthur, Deadpool, Nathan Spencer, M.O.D.O.K. and Dante!

02/14/2011 - New Halo: Reach Map Packs Coming in March
The Battle for Reach Rages on this March with the “Halo: Reach” Defiant Map Pack

Three new multiplayer battlefields arrive for the most critically acclaimed shooter of 2010

London – 14 February, 2011 - Spartans, ready your assault rifles and prepare to take the fight to new fronts! The Covenant crushed human defences on Reach, but the fight for humanity’s survival still rages on in three brand new battlefields set on the doomed planet. With maps set on a giant orbital station high above the burning surface of the planet, hidden inside the forest of a military wilderness training facility, and wrapped in the remnants of a civilian mining site, the Defiant Map Pack brings awesome new environments for Firefight matches and all competitive multiplayer modes.

·         Condemned: Condemned takes place aboard Orbital Station Gamma, a massive space station high in orbit above the planet Reach.  Prior to the Covenant’s overwhelming invasion, Orbital Station Gamma provided long range communications for UNSC fleets and a vital lifeline between Reach and Earth.  During the Battle of Reach, the station suffered terrible punishment at the hands of the Covenant but a few fortified sections remain intact, fully pressurized, and ready for combat. Condemned supports 6 – 12 players in a variety of action-packed game types, including Team Slayer, Team Objective and Free for All.

·         Highlands: Highlands takes place on the top-secret Military Wilderness Training Preserve on Reach.  The Preserve is a large, wooded area where Spartan super-soldiers trained long before the war with the Covenant began.  During the Battle of Reach, the Preserve was the site of key battles between the alien invaders and a group of Spartans who used their familiarity with these UNSC training grounds to significant tactical advantage…but not everyone who enters these woods makes it out alive. Highlands expands the fight with massive-scale engagements for 8 – 16 players in Big Team Battle, Team Slayer and Team Objective.

·         Unearthed: Unearthed takes the battle for Reach to a large Titanium mine and refinery located in the Viery civilian sector of the planet. This particular mine was built to take advantage of the exposed titanium inside a massive meteor crater.  The titanium produced here is used in much of the UNSC hardware, from the chassis of the Warthog to the metres-thick armour plating of capital ships like the UNSC Pillar of Autumn. While this facility was quickly abandoned when the Covenant arrived on Reach, it still has significant tactical (and economic) value and it won’t be long before both humans and Covenant return to battle for control. Unearthed allows up to 4 players to launch a counterassault against the Covenant in Firefight and Firefight modes such as Generator Defense.

Created in partnership with Certain Affinity, the Defiant Map Pack will be available this March on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft points, and will include all new Achievements worth a total of 150 Gamerscore. Eager for a first look at the brand new multiplayer maps? Be sure to check out the explosive world premiere trailer of the Defiant Map Pack available today on Halo Waypoint and Halo.Xbox.com.

The prequel to the bestselling Xbox franchise of all time, “Halo: Reach” is the top-rated shooter of 2010 and one of the must-have entertainment experiences of this generation. To date, more than 40 million copies of “Halo” games have been sold worldwide, driving more than 3.3 billion hours of gameplay by people connected to Xbox LIVE.
