The Monkey's News Box: 11/18/12


Depressed, Toro wonders what he's going to do with his life once Toro Station ends.

  • The end times reared its ugly head this week. Not only did Hostess close its doors, but Toro and Kuro's Weekly Toro Station show will come to an end on March 28th, 2013. No more Fruit Pies or Sony Cats?! What will the world do?! Toro Station is a super cool little interactive news program where the cats talk about new games and interview game characters and big-name developers like Hideo Kojima. Plus, it had Trophies. What will those two lovable cats do? Will they be kicked out of their home again?

  • Sine Mora is shooting up PSN on November 20th, on both the PS3 and Vita. I hope it has the cross-buy promotion.

  • The Tomb Raider Collector's Edition includes the Play Arts Kai Lara Croft action figure, double-sided map/poster, CD soundtrack, a lithograph, three patches, and some weapons DLC, all in a big tin. For $100, that's a good deal considering your getting the game, the Play Arts Kai figure, and extra goodies.

  • Man, I love Tekken Tag 2: Wii U Edition's bizarre mix of Tekken characters in Nintendo cosplay and here's a new trailer of it. Someday I'll get a Wii U so I can play this version.

  • The limited Edition of Macross 30 has a sweet box, a book, posters, and pictures. You know, it really sucks that we never get any Macross games in North America.


  • The huge Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull pre-orders met the goal to go into production, so now the pre-orders have been extended January 4th. This is good because now I can think about whether I actually want one of these or not.


  • The Deus Ex movie is apparently getting the writers of Sinister and The day the Earth Stood still remake. I haven't seen Sinister, but TDtESS remake wasn't too good.
