Dragon Quest IX hits NYC

Nintendo loves to throw a party, this Saturday at the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza the company will hold a launch party for Dragon Quest IX on the Nintendo DS. The event will run July 10th from 1-4pm and feature test stations to play, treats from a Dragon Quest ice cream truck and mini-games. Those fortunate enough will also be able to meet with Yuji Horii the creator of the Dragon Quest series although he will only sign 30 copies of the game (2 per customer).

Dragon Quest IX is set to launch on July 11th for those who are unable to attend the event.

Puzzle Quest 2 arrives on XBLA

Gaming is hard enough without it becoming an addiction, today Puzzle Quest 2 launches on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points. For some this is a great thing, Puzzle Quest brings hours of entertainment and great challenges that break away from the world of Bejeweled. For others, the game turns from fun into a life altering painful addiction that has people doing anything for a few more minutes of the game.

Either way, it’s too late now for everyone, let us all bow to our puzzle gaming overlord now that it has arrived. Check out the video.
