Yannik Hegge offers his first-hand perspective on GamesCom 2011; the sights, the sounds, the crowds…the crowds.
Today it was discovered that all those loyal Nintendo customers who shelled out the full price for the Nintendo 3DS would finally see some of that sweet Ambassador action, and one day early too. The first 10 games of the 20 promised can be found via the eShop. Simply go to the settings section and find “Your Downloads”. There you can re-download these select NES titles.
Remember the Sega Saturn? Chances are you probably do not have a great recollection of this fifth generation console. Perhaps things could have been a little different though. I mean, It had some tough acts to go up against like the Nintendo 64 and Playstation, but I think with one simple factor the Sega Saturn could have kept up with the big boys.
The wildly successful Portal series has provided countless fan-made videos, including two amazing videos that both dropped this week.
The Nintendo 3DS eShop was one of the biggest advertised features on Nintendo’s latest hand-held — other than the 3D effect — but sadly, things haven’t panned out exactly how Nintendo and their fans had hoped.
For a few months, rabid Nintendo owners across the globe were petitioning the publisher to release a series of “hardcore” RPGs in the United States. Xenoblade Chronicles was one of the central titles in this effort known as “Operation Rainfall”, but it failed to influence Nintendo’s decision to exclude North America from this game’s release. This behemoth of a game did not make it Stateside, but thanks to being translated into English for the European Union release ,and the ingenuity of internet hackers, I have had the pleasure of playing this game.
It’s that time of year again when people who you might not think are gamers put on their NFL jerseys, lace up their expensive Nike’s, turn their Affliction hats sideways, and drive to the local game store for the midnight release of phenomenon known as Madden. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Madden 12 is here to suck the life out of many gamers. Time once again to mute your headset or be victimized by 14 year olds as they call you terrible names or free style rap about how much you suck because you can’t stop him from using the same Michael Vick end around play over and over again. Is this year’s Madden just another overpriced roster update, or is the game worth full price?
Instead of picking on one game in particular, this week we’re making fun of a whole genre! Fellow staffer Jessie has been singing the praises of Xenoblade. I got me thinking about RPG’s in general and all their wacky logic. I enjoy the lighter RPG’s myself but can’t really get into the extremely deep 70+ hour games. I like my arcade style titles, thank you very much. Still, the fantasy realms do offer a few moments for humor.
See you next week.
