Hands-on: PvN Dodgeball's new multiplayer modes

We recently got a chance to play some dodgeball with Blazing Lizard. Specifically, we're talking about the company's new Xbox Live Arcade game, Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball. Even more specifically, we got a chance to try out the game's various multiplayer modes. Those following the game may recall that originally the game was to contain only a no-rules, non-traditional version of dodgeball, but Blazing Lizard decided to delay the title in order to add some more traditional modes. We got to try out both of these new modes as well as the original free form mode known as Combat Dodgeball. Read on for our hands-on impressions of each mode.

Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball releases Sept 3rd

After experiencing a delay or two, Gamecock has finally revealed the release date for their sure to be XBLA hit, Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball, and it's coming sooner than you expect. The newly new official Dodgeball release date is Wednesday, September 3rd with pricing still yet to be announced. Remember too that not only are pirates and ninjas featured in the game, but we've already heard that zombies AND robots will be tossing around red balls too. Insta-buy? Maybe ... but only if the game's dodgeball physics engine is up to par and if there's an option to always have ninjas win.

Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball honors Chuck Norris

It goes without saying, really. We all honor Chuck Norris in our own way, seeing as not honoring him is rewarded with a quick and painful death. Still, the developers of Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball have seen fit to include a Chuck Norris based achievement in the upcoming XBLA title. Entitled "Chuck Rules!" the achievement is unlocked by beating the Ninjas Story Mode. Frankly, we're a little puzzled as to why the achievement is named after Norris, as he himself is not a ninja, though we expect he has killed his fair share of ninjas. That said, we've learned not to question Chuck Norris -- or the things related to him -- so we'll just leave it at that. Hit the source link for the full list of Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball achievements.

Exclusive: Meet the Robot team of Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball

Don't ask us how we managed it (we've done things of which we are not proud), but we've managed to snag the exclusive details behind the latest team in Blazing Lizard's Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball, Robots. We have concept art and details on each team member, including their background and special moves. Not only that, but we've got shots of the Robots' dodgeball court as well. We've piled all the shots and information into a special gallery that you'll find embedded below. Peruse them all and ponder whether or not the combined might of pirates and ninjas can topple the indomitable Robot army.

Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball's new team: Robots

Considering the fact that robots will one day rule us all, we're surprised we never figured out they would be playable in Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. Honestly, we wish that Blazing Lizard hadn't forced this new choice upon us, as we're having trouble dealing with it. Pirates against ninjas, that was an easy fight (ninjas win, obviously), but robots put a whole new spin on things. Ninja versus robot is harder to call. Sure, one ninja versus one robot and the ninja could probably win. But the robot army of the impending robot apocalypse will be unstoppable. That's just a fact. Then again, there is the zombie team, which would only get larger as the robot army killed the pirates and ninjas. Maybe that would balance things out.

Nerdy rambling aside, there is still at least one more team to be revealed according to the official Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball website (in fact, the robots team hasn't even been revealed there). We're still holding out for the lawyers team because someone's going to have to sort out this mess. Also, you may want to check out a recent -- and fairly positive -- TeamXbox preview of the game. Hit the "read" link and check it out.

Pirates Vs. Ninjas site now live, new trailer

As you may have guessed from the headline above, the official Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball website is now live. The website includes some screenshots (most of which we've seen before), wallpaper, IM icons, and a new video. There are some "coming soon" features as well including forums and the ability to send the page to friends for "free pirate music mp3s." The new video, embedded above, is a cheeky live action affair involving a group of pirates searching for a ninja bandit. Frankly, we really hope Blazing Lizard can deliver on the gameplay here. If not, there are going to be some disappointed Xbox Live Arcade ninjas and pirates come early 2008.

Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball: first trailer

What better way to start your week than with the first official trailer for Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball? None better, that's what we say. But wait, there's more! Not only is there an awesome trailer -- complete with sea chantey -- but G4 is also hosting a rundown on several members of the Ninja team that includes each character's special move and background information. We're really digging the newly revealed characters, especially the cybernetic ninja. You gotta love cybernetic ninjas, right?

Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball confirmed for XBLA, zombies revealed

Blazing Lizard has announced that Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball is headed to Xbox Live Arcade. Sure, this isn't exactly surprising, but it's nice to get official confirmation. The game is scheduled to arrive in early 2008. In news that actually is a little surprising, Blazing Lizard has revealed a new team in Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball: zombies. You can find more details about the zombie team at IGN. We knew other teams were headed to the game, but we never ever considered zombies. We're happy about their inclusion (zombies improve any game), but we're still holding out for the lawyer team. They're not the most aggressive dodgeball players, but they're great at defense (ouch).

We've uploaded artwork for all the new characters as well as some images of the new graveyard arena into our Pirates Vs. Ninjas gallery. Check 'em out below.

Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball: best game ever?

Blazing Lizard, the company recently formed by former members of Volition (Saints Row), has announced what will no doubt be one of the most earth-shattering games yet created on this planet, Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. Yes, the game seeks to answer the centuries old questions of which group is superior. What better way to do that than with a good old fashioned game of dodgeball, right? Actually, it's not strictly old fashioned, as teams are not restricted to one side of the court, being allowed instead to run anywhere they see fit. PvN Dodgeball is set to be the first in the Pirates Vs. Ninja series -- we can only guess what other sports Blazing Lizard has in mind -- and will be available via as yet unannounced download services. We're assuming that Xbox Live Arcade is a safe bet at this point. Oh, and if by some minute chance you prefer neither ninjas nor pirates, there are three other teams from which to choose, though Blazing Lizard has yet to announce what those teams are (lawyers maybe?). Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball is scheduled to arrive during the first quarter of 2008.
