Smart phones may be a big market, but they are nowhere close to bringing down Nintendo and Sony’s handheld consoles.
The floorboards creak, the windows quietly scream horror, the lighting crashes……AH! It’s a ghost! This is what Luigi goes through every night at his new job, a ghost hunter. It’s been a while since the brother has been in the spotlight, in fact it has been over 10 years but Luigi’s Mansion 2 is a great way to kick off the year of Luigi, the green capped brother should be proud.

After years and years of training pokemon within the confines of the 2d realm everything is finally changing. Continue Reading

It may seem like it was just yesterday that the worlds of Cloud Strife and Mickey Mouse collided to create Kingdom hearts, but Dream Drop Distance marks 10 years of the series’ lifespan. By this point in time most gamers understand what Kingdom Hearts is and have decided whether or not it is a series that is worthy of their library, and Dream Drop Distance understands that about itself. For a Kingdom Hearts game with Disney characters, vibrant colors and wonderful music, Dream Drop Distance is the worst game for someone new to the series to be introduced to. The storyline has reached a point where it’s hard to make sense even for a seasoned Kingdom Hearts player and it’s fairly weaker than the other entries in the series, the gameplay is a bit more frustrating than the other entries, the storyline is a bit off and the game might be better off without some of the new features.
Today SEGA announced a sequel to their great kart racer Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed! The first game was excellent and a refreshing title to add to our racing collection because a good kart racer is something that is hard to come by if it isn’t Mario Kart. This time around the karts will be switching to air and water along with land, less like Diddy Kong Racing and more like Mario Kart 7. Hopefully the game will be better than what the trailer shows.
It looks like the launch of Kid Icarus:Uprising will be accompanied by a plastic stand so that you don’t have to hold your 3DS while you are playing it. While the controls of the new Kid Icarus might be frustrating or tiring to the hands Nintendo felt that they would give 3DS owners a break by letting them sit it down on a table, that is if you have a table while you are sitting on the bus playing your handheld system. The stand does not make much sense now but maybe it’s uses will be more apparent later on… Continue Reading
If you have not turned your 3DS on in a while (why not, there are plenty of good titles for it) or if you have simply not let it connect to the net in a while, now is a good time to do so.
Due to poor sales of the console and subsequent price drop (though frankly I don’t see that they were bad) Nintendo are offering 20 classic NES and GBA titles free to download to early adopters, being anyone who first performed a system update before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11, 2011.
While you may have no interest in many of them there must be something in there for most people, I mean who can say no to Mario and not one but three Zelda games (including the Minish Cap)? The complete list is included below. All you have to do to get them (assuming you are eligible) is open the store select settings/other go to your download history where you will find they have been added to your account for download. The complete list of titles is below the cut.
This week portable gaming has had more than the usual amount of news so we thought we would give you an update..
-Nekkei Trendy, a technology website for Japan, that the “Lite” model of the 3DS will be released in Japan during the first half of 2012 as many of you probably already predicted when they announced the 3DS in the first place. Hopefully this new model will have the Circle Pad Pro built into it.
- Also due to the low sales of the PS Vita shops in Japan (A little above 40,000 units, behind the 3DS, the PS3, the original PSP and even the Wii!) have been lowering their prices unofficially just to sell them from their stores, this has been happening more often with the 3G models than the regular models.
-A new Monster Hunter game has been rumored over in japan, this could be a spin off in the series or a port of the fourth title in the series which as it stands now is a 3DS exclusive.
-Capcom has confirmed that 3DS owners will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil Revelations later on this year.
-The 3DS has sold over 4 million units at this point in time, Nintendo states that this is more than the Wii sold in it’s first nine months. The regular Nintendo DS has sold over 10 Million.
