There are tons of great games coming out this week! As a comic-book nerd and Silicon Knights fan, I’m most excited about X-Men Destiny. Football (soccer) fans have FIFA 12 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 to devour (go Man City!). The PlayStation 3 is arguably the most interesting platform this week with The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, Child of Eden, Tom Clancy’s: Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy , and Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland set for release.
Any of you planning to pick up … more
You must check out this gameplay clip of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for Nintendo 3DS. It mixes music-rhythm gameplay with scenes, characters, and music from numerous Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy VIII marks will be particularly delighted by a certain scene. After you give the video a go, please let me know what you think of it. I’m definitely picking this one up.
Everyone could use a few more god-killers in their lives. This week Sony is providing a double dose in God of War: Origins. This compilation contains HD remasters of Kratos’ adventures in Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. I know that a few of you are hockey fans and not Canadian (very strange), so I imagine that NHL 12 is a big deal for you. White Knight Chronicles II isn’t getting the hype of the original, but it looks better in several areas. Lastly, Nintendo fans can … more
My pal Chett Muzzalupo, owner of independent game store L1 Games, recently posted a great rant that covers Call of Duty Elite, EA Sports Season Pass, digital distribution, and more. He makes some great points that I completely agree with. He also makes some points that are a bit exaggerated. Lastly, he also exhibits great taste by professing his love for Red Dwarf.
Famitsu (via Andriasang) has revealed the “Expansion Slide Pad” accessory for the Nintendo 3DS. It adds an additional analog stick (definitely) and additional shoulder buttons (likely). The 3DS fits into the Expansion Slide Pad in a docking-station like manner. The first game to use the accessory will be Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3G 3DS.
The initial reaction from the gaming press contained hundreds of gallons of Haterade. While this is the usual reaction of the enthusiast press, it seems more reasonable this time around. The 3DS had a poor … more
Are you ready for some (American) football?!? A bunch of you had fantasy drafts yesterday and are amped for the season to start. Why not increase the anticipation with some Madden NFL 12? If you’re more about guns than balls then you should keep an eye on Bodycount, the spiritual successor to the underrated Black. Looking for something more esoteric and Japanese? How about Cladun X2 from the excellent people at Nippon Ichi Software America? You can add some (scary) spice to your life and get in … more
As many of you know, in addition to slicing the price of its 3DS portable gaming console, Nintendo will be rewarding early adopters with its Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program.
Ambassadors get to fly around the world and represent Nintendo to participating governments. Ambassadors will be rewarded with 20 free downloadable games for the 3DS, including 10 that are exclusive to the program.
Some retailers were selling the 3DS at a discounted price several days before the official price drop on August 12, 2011. This allowed savvy gamers to … more
With Nintendo’s recent financial report and the company’s bungling of the 3DS, a lot of people are saying that Nintendo is doomed. As someone that has covered the company for several console generations…
You have to hand it to Nintendo’s executive team. They step up to their responsibilities and accept blame like men. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently addressed shareholders about the company’s decision to slash the price of its Nintendo 3DS handheld system. He acknowledged the failure, accepted the blame, and said that he would slash his salary in half. He also noted that other executives would be hit with a 20- to 30-percent salary cut.
Iwata’s actions are very Japanese and very Eastern. By Western standards, it seems unusual. A … more
Now that the Nintendo 3DS price cut has been announced, I wanted to see if any of you were planning to pick one up. It’s a neat little system with a bright gaming future, but its launch has been somewhat…unimpressive. Perhaps a price cut will make it seem exciting and new (think Love Boat). What do you think? Kindly take today’s poll and expand on your purchasing decision in the comments section!… more
