Game Review

Every fighter has a feature or a gimmick that it relies on for its success. Mortal Kombat has intense blood and gore; Street Fighter is known for its colorful and diverse cast of characters and its deep fighting mechanics; BlazBlue has a gorgeous 2D anime style; Soul Calibur mixes it up with some wildly varied weapon combat, leaving the Dead or Alive series with its cast of wonderfully busty...

Samus not playable in DoA: Dimensions

  So last week Tecmo unveiled a trailer for Dead or Alive: Dimensions for the 3DS. Was pretty exciting, as not only did it show off some pretty impressive visual graphics, it also showed off a stage based upon the Metroid universe, even a stage hazard Ridley shooting fireballs at the fighters. The most exciting part of the trailer, however, would have to go to the appearance of Samus leaving her morphball near the end. It left many speculating that Samus could make an appearance in the game as an actual fighter. Seems this is not the case. In a conversation with EuroGamer, Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayoshi said that Samus is not a playable fighter in the game. Rather, she'll show up and assist fighters depending on certain circumstances in the fight. DoA games are already accustomed to external elements in a fight making an actual impact, so having Samus and Ridley interact with the fighters is pretty cool, although the idea of Samus as a playable fighter in her Zero Suit fits DoA as much as Kratos fits Mortal Kombat. That is to say, it would wok perfectly. Read More


More info on the 3DS

  You've heard by now that the 3DS will be coming to the United States on March 27 for $250. That's great, with some pretty fantastic titles on the way. However, some neat information has been leaked about this handheld, and a lot of it is pretty nifty.  3DS Friend Codes are on their way. However, unlike the Wii or DS titles, this code is locked to the system (and maybe a profile?), so once you become friends with someone, you don't have to enter a new one for each game. It's even better if you're physically next to someone, as you can "bump" your friend code information. So. Easy. Additionally, the 3DS can multitask, allowing players to send games and applications into stand-by while they search the web, take notes, or--excitedly--see what friends are online and what games they are playing. It might not be Xbox Live, but it's a step in the right direction. Twenty-three titles will be out by June. Some of these are big name titles, like nintendogs + cats, Pilotwings Resort, and Dead or Alive: Dimensions, and some of them are kind of lame. What the heck is a CRUSH 3D? Unfortunately, big name franchise titles like Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario, and a Metroid title are not here.  Interestingly, it looks like there is an Other M stage in DoA: Dimensions, and there is a good chance Samus is a fighter. Don't believe me? Check it out here. DSiWare titles are transferable. This one is something everyone is thinking about with WiiWare too. When a new console comes around, what happens to the downloadable games purchased? Nintendo doesn't have a unified account system yet. Thankfully, Nintendo has gone on the record saying DSiWare titles will be transferable, and while they didn't say how (I bet it's through an SD card, which the DSi has a slot for). It's not a perfect system, but hopefully once titles are locked down, they will be tied to an account. Unfortunately, it'll be coming after the system launch. The 3DS is region locked. A major bummer, I know, but Nintendo claims this is to implement parental controls. Booo. All in all, there's some cool details about the device. The price is pretty high, but I've got to be real, the 3D effect is amazing. For me, $250 is a steal. March 27 can't come quickly enough. Read More


3DS Footage and Screens Bonanza

There's been plenty of 3DS news out of Nintendo's event this weekend (like the unbelievable fact that the battery life may be as short as 3 hours in some cases), so we thought it might be helpful to compile some of the highlights here for your viewing pleasure. You know you want to hit the jump. Read More


Over 30 3DS titles demoed next month at Nintendo World 2011

    Ever since I saw the 3DS at E3 2010, I have been buzzing with anticipation for the handheld. Seriously, the device does exactly as it promises, which in itself is an amazing achievement. I'm so excited, that at the age of 23, I'm saving up my pocket change to have enough to buy the device at launch. I'll be lucky if I can afford a game as well. Unfortunately, while we still wait for a North American release date, the Japanese can look forward to a February 26 launch date. Even worse, Nintendo has this semi-annual event called Nintendo World, a Japan-only event where they show off the latest games and hardware. Rubbing salt in the wound, Nintendo is showing off over 30 brand new 3D titles! Sure, only 15 of them are actually playable, and the others are just demos, that's a ton of content to let people play for a fresh console. However, trust me, this thing is hot, and knowing that Nintendo fans in Japan will get to play with these games before we even get a release date is a major drag. Mostly for me. Looking over this list, I do have to say that Paper Mario is the title that most excites me, with the 3D version of Metal Gear Solid 3 and Nintendogs + cats not far off. Of course, the 3D version of Ocarina of Time could be a goodie too. There are so many awesome sounding games! And I can't be the only one to notice that Pokemon Black and White is coming out not long after the rumored March 3DS launch, so maybe there will be some 3DS support inside? And what 3DS games are you excited about? The full demo list is after the jump Read More
