I don’t know what kind of bait you were using, pal, but you landed yourself a whopper; and I don’t mean the candy or the burger. This week’s episode of the Okie cast features special guest TJ Lutz from Pwnee Studios. As expected, we talk about all our normal stuff and then a whole lot about Pwnee’s upcoming game, Cloudberry Kingdom. You should listen because this is a pretty good show. Not like those other sub-standard podcasts we normally make.
Starring – Tony, Shannon, Micah, TJ, Shelby
Run time – 2:20:56

This week on the Okie Cast a giant chicken sneaks into the recording. Don’t ask me how it happened. Even though I was there I don’t really understand it. Not only do we have oversized chickens but also some talk of Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, Rhythm Heaven Fever and Newton Vs. The Horde as well as a stack of iOS software. During the news we talk about turtles, space and DLC. What a combo!

See what I did there? I picked up my copy of Resident Evil: Revelations today, along with a Circle Pad Pro and inside it I found something I want more third party Nintendo games to have; Club Nintendo coins. This isn’t the first third party game this generation to have the insert nestled inside a game case, but it hasn’t happened very much so I thought it was worth mentioning.
This year will mark the first time I’ve made Platinum Status for Club Nintendo and I want to see more games have the inserts because I’ve always thought it kinda weird that it was only Nintendo published games. This won’t necessarily drive people towards these games on Nintendo platforms, but it’s nice to know you’ve got a little bonus waiting for you if you do.
Plus, now you get free digital games by redeeming Club Nintendo coins so these games could help you expand your digital library in the future. There has been no word on whether or not Resident Evil: Revelations has Club Nintendo coins or not. I’ll keep you updated.
Resident Evil: Revelations hits stores on Tuesday and as you can see in the picture above there’s something a little wrong with the first run of the games. They’ll be hitting stores with the name of the game misspelled on the package’s spine. This is not the first time Capcom has had issues with game packaging. Some of you might remember the re-release of Okami on the Wii where the game shipped with an IGN watermark on the cover because Capcom didn’t have the original box art, so they just pulled some from the internet.
Capcom responded to the mistake and is offering to correct it for anyone that would like a replacement. Personally, I think I’d like to have one of these and leave it as is on the shelf. It adds a little character to the game. The following message was posted to the Capcom blog.
As you may well have heard by now, the title of Revelations is indeed misspelled on the spine of the game box (as “Revelaitons”). Unfortunately, the initial North American shipment of the game will reflect this error, but we just got confirmation that subsequent shipments of the title are being repackaged to have the correct spelling. Meanwhile, customers who have received the misspelled version can contact our Customer Service line at 650-350-6700 or by email at email@example.com and we’ll send you a new insert for your case. So yay!
So, if you want a replacement cover for the game, simply call up Capcom and they’ll send you a new one toot sweet.
If you were one of the people interested in buying Resident Evil: Revelations when it launches next month you might have also been someone who was dismayed at the fact that it was going to cost you $50. Well, friend, fret no more as Capcom, after “weeks of effort,” has announced that the game will be officially dropping in price to $39.99, a full $10 less than before and on par with all of the other 3DS software available.
Much of the reason that Capcom was giving as to the increased cost was the fact that the game uses a 4GB card, which no other game to date has used. I was afraid this was going to signal the beginning of the price creep that we also saw on the DS when games slowly rose from $20-30 up to $40, but it appears that Capcom won’t the trend setter here.
Resident Evil: Revelations is the first proper entry in the franchise that will make its way to the 3DS, following last years high score fiesta, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Capcom released a demo of the game in the eShop this week and we’re going to take a look at what you can expect when the game finally launches on February 7th.
This is the first demo that has been made available in the eShop so I think I should tell you what that process is like. Have you downloaded a game on the 3DS yet? Then you know exactly what to expect. It’s one of the first listings currently in the eShop, but is also easily available through a search should you not be able to find it. The demo is just over 1100 blocks in size and downloads pretty quickly. I was able to get started playing the game in about 5 minutes. You’ve got the opportunity to boot up the demo 30 times after you download it, but you can play through it as many times as you want during each play session.
Nintendo has been promising for a while now that playable demos would hit the eShop after it launched. We haven’t yet seen any of those, but that will change tomorrow when the first demo officially hits the store. Capcom is going to be releasing a portion of Resident Evil: Revelations that will show off more of the game and allow you to get your hands dirty.
That will be followed next week by Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, courtesy of Sega. We know my history with Capcom and demos, so you can be assured that I’m going to be downloading this one and giving it a try. I liked the small chunk that was available with Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and this promises to show off more of the game. Check back in the next few days to see my thoughts.
