Stay tuned for a special announcement about PixlBit, as well as your regularly scheduled content from the PixlTalk crew.

This week starts with a special site announcement delivered by Nick and Chessa, but is promptly followed by regular weekly discussion. Given the swirling rumors of the Wii successor, discussion of the upcoming system continued this week. What's now confirmed as Project Cafe is discussed in detail, as is the credibility of the various rumors that are floating around.

Thanks to a Kotaku posting, more rumors are discussed regarding the PS4 and NextBox. Things smoothly shift into talk of the PSN outages and the death of the PSPgo.

This might be of interest to some of you: While PSN is still down, Netflix is actually up and running, contrary to what was stated on the podcast.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Review

It almost hurts to write that it’s been 13 years since Sega released Banana Blitz back on the Wii. At the time, I know I couldn’t have been more excited that we were about to see a Monkey Ball game that leveraged the motion capabilities of Nintendo’s hit system. However, when it finally released, I wasn’t thrilled with the results. Rather than leveraging the Wii remote in its horizontal orientation, like many other motion-centric games had, it forced you to point forward and contort your arm in awkward ways to tilt the stage. I quickly shelved the game and wrote it off as a failure. I suspect I wasn’t the only one, because after all these years Sega has released an HD remaster of the game leveraging more standard console controls using the analog stick. Unfortunately, the transition has introduced level design changes that bring things to a degree of difficulty that I’ve found to be insurmountable.
