Nintendo 3DS Hands On

  • Images Credited to… Pictures – gamechy, 3dsblue.net

With the Nintendo 3DS already out in stores it’s shocking that a lot of people haven’t played it yet. This is an amazing system, And I can say first hand that they got a homerun on there hands with this one. I just can’t wait for them to release a killer must have game for this sexy beast

Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition is THE killer app of the 3DS launch by far

of a console. The only game available to play was Super Street Fighter 4 3D edition. The 3D with this particular game wasn’t the pop out at you type, but more like a deep world inside of a screen depth type. (almost like looking out of a car window that moves with the action on screen with the depth further selling the illusion) The wire and other small objects in the world also kind of have depth to them as they look like there “in front” of the fighters and action on screen. The 3DS has a slick cool look to it and looks really good design-wise only be bettered by apples design philosophy. The button layout feels cozy and the circle pad really adds more control; in other words can’t wait for a fully 3D plat-former on this thing. speaking of which the Rayman 2 has a remake on this thing, and being a big fan of the original I can’t wait to see this game in 3 Dimensions. The added depth and plain of view will really add to the gameplay and make a great game better. The launch games look unimpressive though (in fact Rayman 2 and SSF4 are the only good looking ones). I would wait till Nintendo gets it’s big hitters in there (like a mario, zelda, or metroid) to really make a difference with there wonder device. The 3DS has deeper online social features and other wifi toys added on to it (like the street pass and spot pass modes). With all this being said is the 3DS worth $249.99? Well as of right now… no, you see there needs to be more games for this monster to get over. As of right now It’s cool but there are simply no games for it. Wait a month or two until the tides turn for the better, until then the Nintendo 3DS is just a really fly idea and nothing more.

Slick, Smooth and 3-Dimensional

WWE All-Stars Demo Watch

Even Rey Mysterio is Huge in this game!!!!!

Playing WWE All-Stars is like playing a modern day NBA Jam that is centered on Wrestling (so like playing WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game). The game plays good (easy pick up and play arcade feel). The Simple gamplay really brings a new level of care free fun to this title, no more complex joystick grapple system seen here. The joystick mini games are gone replaced by button-mashing user friendly ones. So for you fans of wrestling that have played WWF Royal Rumble on the Dreamcast, this game goes back to that simple arcade gameplay but way more so (because this is definitely not trying to simulate wrestling at all). The game itself is a very exaggerated and over the top take on wrestling (as if wrestling wasn’t over the top enough…). The gameplay is wild; wrestlers fly 10 feet in the air, finishers are brutal and the gameplay is filled with at the most 2 button presses at one time. This is what wrestling must have FELT like in the 80’s, because the game itself feel larger then life. The gamplay modes are arcade like in nature (Meaning nothing here to slow down the action). No tag matches here just Tornado tags, cage matches and anything else with full throttle action. From what I played this game is worth a try, play the demo on XBOX Live or Play Station network today. And if my somewhat coherent argument convinced you then go pick it up today because it’s OUT NOW. For more gameplay look at the youtube video below…

After almost a full year of  absolutely no details on Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom finally decided to release new cinema and gameplay trailers. And as a added bonus they also released info on yet another edition of Super Street Fighter 4 in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. First off Street Fighter X Tekken will be released in stores as well as in DLC form. So for you guys who totally hate the idea of buying yet another boxed version of Street Fighter 4 can save space and the environment.

The game will feature Street Fighter 3 favorites Yun and Yang as well as Evil Ryu and Oni, The added fighters will have intros as well as ending movies. The gameplay in this new edition will be tweaked and picked at to better balance the fighters and gameplay.

SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!!!!!

As for when the game will release and how much it will go for gameinformer.com had this to say “The Arcade Edition DLC will launch worldwide on June 7 for $14.99 (U.S.) or the roughly equivalent amount in your region, while the console disc versions will hit stores later in the month (June 24 is confirmed for Europe) at a “price that won’t break the bank,” according to the Capcom presentation”.

Moving onto Street Fighter X Tekken the new trailer (which you can see below) has a host of new Confirmed Characters (according to csmonitor.com)  including… Ken, Guile and Abel from Street Fighter and King, Bob, and Marduk from Tekken. From what we see from the trailer a new counter system has been added (either that or the “Rage” System from Tekken 6. Or just the plan old focus system from Street Fighter 4, it is the same engine after all). The release date has not been decided as of right now, but stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

PC gamers love customization, Which is funny because most gamers do. And fighting gamers are no exception. The ESRB recently announced via there website linked here that Super Street Fighter 4 will get a PC release. As for the customization thing I was talking about mods were possible in the PC version of the normal Street Fighter 4. For those of you NOT in the know Mods are custom skins for characters that can be what ever you desire. For examples on this matter look at the video below. Just as a side note the PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 has not officially been announced yet by capcom. That means no official release date as of right now IF SSF4 for PC is a reality.

 

 

 

Uncharted territory (times 3!!!!)

Get use to seeing a lot of desert in Uncharted 3 because that's were you'll spent most of the game

The much anticipated uncharted 3 is set for release November 1st 2011 and the games feature was leaked thanks to G4TV.com which stated… ” Uncharted 3 will follow the series hero, Drake, as he searches for a lost city in the Arabian Peninsula. If you don’t want to know anything else about Uncharted 3 before its release, consider this your spoiler alert! Here’s what we now know about Uncharted 3… Drake

Uncharted 2 looked good as it was, but Uncharted 3 is on it's graphical game for real (and then some).

will be spending most of his time in the Arabian desert, exploring the dunes of Rub’ al Khali. You’ll still be globe trotting, visiting places like London and a jungle temple. You can expect “all the things you’d expect in a desert” – that includes sandstorms and mirages.” G4 also states that the game will have a more advanced Melee system being that you now can fight multiple enemies and a improved stealth mechanic. The game will also have a vehicle section like last time, this time you’ll be riding on motorcycles. expect chaos to ensue. Look for Uncharted 3 November 1st exclusively on PS3.

Well... She seems to be enjoying the new Mass Effect anime

 

Well in EA’s ever lasting attempt at making more money then they already have, there cashing in on the Mass Effect series… by making a anime movie out of it. Yup there making another anime movie/film based on a video game universe (like what EA did with Dead Space). Apparently there trying to “flesh out” the game universe. The good news is there having Casey Hudson, executive producer of the Mass Effect series at BioWare be executive producer on the film. Which could mean this movie could stay true to the universe and lure of the video game. At any rate anime is hurting right now and NEEDS stuff like this, being that the anime industry is seeing record lows. This anime based on a American property is being animated by FUNimation Entertainment, and is in production now set to release in 2012.
