The Amazing Spider-Man, the reboot of the Spider-Man movie franchise, is going to be in theaters soon, and that means licensed video game time. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing these days though. Half of the time, the games have been better than the movie (I’m looking at you, Wolverine Origins). Plus, this is a Spider-Man game, and those have been very good recently. Today, there was a demo released on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. We haven’t heard much about the 3DS version, so this demo will really be the first look at this version. The big question: Is this game going to be any good? Let’s find out.
We are just minutes away from the last of the ig three's conferences! Join us as Nintendo takes the stage!
Here we are with the second E3 press conference of the year, and it belongs to Sony. Things are going to be starting up shortly, so stick around!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! It's the day where everyone pretends to be Irish by wearing green and getting drunk. Club Nintendo is even getting into the swing of things by celebrating their most famous green-clad character, Luigi. Not only is Luigi prominently features in Mario's usual spot, but all of the normally red elements have been changed to green. Even the Club Nintendo logo has Luigi's green hat in place of Mario's red one. To make things even better, they are offering a special Luigi Nintendo 3DS pouch for 450 coins. I ordered mine the instant I saw it, but ever since Super Mario Bros. 2 I have had a soft place in my heart for Luigi. If you do too, head over to Club Nintendo and order one before they are gone!
Today's Nintendo Direct presentation was okay. There wasn't much talked about that we didn't already know, but there was one nice surprise announcement, and it is something that I am very excited about. Some of the included news was the fan selected box art for the NA release of Xenoblade Chronicles, some nice Mario Tennis revelations, and a few other release dates. There are a few tidbits from the Japanese presentation that were left out of the presentation shown here, and those are the announcement of GameGear titles coming to the eShop, and a 3DS game that is being worked on by Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai. I'm guessing we will hear more about that around E3.
I had just grabbed my 3DS to play some more Tales of the Abyss, and I saw my little blue SpotPass light. It was a notification of a new note waiting for me in Swapnote. After downloading my four new notes (I didn't check it at all on Monday), I noticed one of them looked a little different. When I opened it, it had a gold border instead of the normal blue border. I thought it would be a note from Nikki, but it turned out to be so much more important! It was a message from Reggie Fils-Aime! As you can see from the little bubble in the image, it also included a little audio clip from the man himself. The Swapnote was to inform everyone of the live Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow morning at 9 AM EST, where we will be getting some news on the Wii and 3DS. And as a little added bonus, we got a new stationary to use.
One of my top 10 games on the Dreamcast, as well as one of the biggest WTF games I have ever played, is reportedly making its way to the Nintendo 3DS. According to Nikkei, Nintendo is reviving titles from the catalogs of other publishers, including Seaman. In fact, the original creator of the game stated that could be seeing Seaman on the 3DS. This news makes me very excited, but we don't know any details yet. Make sure you stay tuned for more on this one.
The official Major League Baseball 2K8 site is now live, and while the site is a bit lacking in details it does announce the platforms the game is being developed for.
