  1. 3DS Console Discussion

    Yes, Yes it was
  2. 3DS Console Discussion

    Thought I would share my thoughts on the London 3DS event too. I went the the 1pm time slot, I had my girlfriend and a friend with me and was planning to abandon them outside while I went in but was told that it should be ok if they could come in too. So surprisingly I had two guests with me in the event. As with everyone else the event started off with the weird floor thing that lit up to explain spot pass, the cheesy speech, live street fighter fight and the resident evil dark room walk through. Then Jonathan Ross was on a tv introducing the event. After that the doors opened and it felt like being at Wonkas chocolate factory, there were more than enough 3DS's for everyone to play, around 20 people were at the event. The first game I played was Resident Evil Mercs and when I got on the DS I went to press the start button but soon realised it was the power button and forgot that the start button had been moved, I then had to find my way back to the in game screen. After all that I finally got to play the game and was bored pretty fast with it, the 3D was pretty good but not as good as I was expecting. I then moved on and saw that my girlfriend was playing Lego Starwars which didn't look too bad. After watching the lego game for a min or so I had a walk around and saw Ridge Racer and Steel Diver but walked straight past to Dead or alive. Dead or alive was good fun, at the start menu it have a level that could be looked around with the gyroscope and the graphics were on par with a gamecube game. I then moved onto Kid Icarus which blew me away, I even had a stylus in a holder in front of me which made the controls feel really good. The 3D in this game were deficiently the best I saw all show. The on ground parts were a little odd requiring you to swipe the screen to look around but I soon got used to it. I then played Pilot wings and had double vision when playing it and had to adjust the slider to remove it. I had to use the 3d slider quite often but the game was fun enough to ignore the annoyance. I then got to play Zelda but not for long as we were soon shifted onto the next room. Zelda wasn't the prettiest of games at the event but the character models looked great. In the next room I had a go on the camera which didn't work to well in the not very well lit room, The mii creator was funny but probably not the most accurate thing in the world. Face raiders was fun and used the gyroscope well. The next game I played was the augmented reality game which was very impressive and graphically looked much better than the videos I had seen online. This was one of the highlights of the event. Other games I played were Monkey Ball, Raving Rabbids and Nintendogs. Surprisingly Raving Rabbids was quite fun and much better than what I was expecting, 3d looked good too! They had some 3DS's with 3d trailers on which included: Sky tv, animal crossing, Mario kart and Paper Mario. Paper Mario looked great in 3d and was one of the best games along with kid Icarus to use the 3d. I looked at the time and realised that I had been at the event for 55mins and decided to leave as I had tried everything in the second room. I was really surprised that we weren't shooed off but allowed to stay much longer than I thought. Oh yeah, the colour blue 3ds isn't as bad in person compared to the pics online. Over all I thought Nintendo put a lot of effort into the even and was one of the best events I had been to, mainly due to no queuing. I am now even more excited to get my 3ds next month.

  10. I don't know if its just me but the future wii games really seem to be lacking in quality. Currently I'm only looking forward to: Wario land shake it De blob Captain rainbow (not sure if it will make it out side japan alla giftopia) Animal crossing (although it doesn't seem to different) STRONG BAD!! (also out on PC) Mad world And that's about it really.... There seems to be too many casual games that are only being made to cash in on the current market. Its a real shame, I miss the old days. I think its safe to say that Celebrity Sports Showdown is enough to make anyone cringe. So my question it, what's everyone else looking forward to (announced games that have been shown off only)?
  11. The Maw

    I know there is a Xbox Live Arcade,Originals & XNA thread but i feel that this game deserves its own and support. There are some gameplay vids at http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/dor/objects/14259873/the-maw/videos/XBLA_TheMaw_072908.01.html;jsessionid=8trs65k4ll850 Looks like a lot of fun!!
  12. The Maw

    Penny Arcade Expo Impressions for The Maw "Twisted Pixel's upcoming Xbox Live Arcade action game The Maw was on hand at the Penny Arcade Expo for a little hands on time. In the game you play as Frank, a hapless alien armed with only a Plasma Leash. Fortunately he has the frighteningly large and easily frightened blob-like pet Maw. Frank can use his leash to guide Maw around to eat thing and clear paths, but despite being nearly all teeth, Maw is an easily frightened creature. So Frank has to spend a lot of time bulking up Maw and dealing with obstacles that the creature won't face. The game has a lot going for it. First there's the amazing personality built into the game. The Maw and its lead creature are sure to win over the hearts of gamers as they play through it. The game itself is a nice combination of unique mechanic and fun puzzles. To take on many challenged gamers have to move Frank around which, in turn thanks to the leash, gets Maw to move around. But the fact that you don't have total control over Maw and can merely suggest where it should go, adds a whole other level of challenge to the game. While seems big enough to take on everything in the game if it wanted to, the fact that everything even slightly close to his size, makes the game much more challenging. Often Frank will have to find ways around scary creatures to move Maw along through the game. Frank can use his leash on other creatures, he can also use it to occasionally grab some items for puzzle solving. Maw grows as you feed it, it also takes on the powers of the things it eats. So when he sups on a fire creature he temporarily gains the ability to shoot out flames. The Maw seems to have that pleasing mix of fun graphics, engaging character art and interesting game mechanic that virtually insures success. The game is due to hit the Xbox Live Arcade next year." http://kotaku.com/5043980/the-maw-impressions
  13. Mr Soap

    Lol, well i kinda did mine in 50fps, but thats just cause i thought it would be smoother, but because of that people who watch the raw swf file have problems in internet explorer or their computers are just to slow. Im thinking the last episode will be in 30fps, i hope then people wont have problems with it. Im also gonna spend a lil more time with it to make it a fun episode rather than the one day i used for the last one. Im using cs3, there isnt a great deal of difference between the 2 unless ur gonna be action scripting i think. But its always better to go for newer when u "purchace" it
  14. Mr Soap

    Thanks for that! The animation doesn't look as bad in the swf file, but when u watch it on youtube it looks a bit meh and juddery. What FPS do you use? I heard 30fps is the best, is that true? Thanks for the reply
  15. Mr Soap

    I have edited my posts above and have posted the finished versions of Mr Soap - episode one and 2. I'm gonna make one more episode where he is in jail. Let me know what u think
  16. Mr Soap

    It will be longer, its just a short animation that I made in an afternoon. The second half is nearly done now. Just finishing off the sound. When its done i might, put both halves together, not sure yet. Edit: Finished episode 2 This is a continuation of the story from episode one.
  17. The K.O.R.E

    "Snap Dragon Games has revealed Kore, a new 3D platform adventure for Wii. "With three zany, kooky crackpots sharing a cybernetic K.O.R.E suit, insane action is guaranteed," promises the release. The K.O.R.E suit gives its wearers special abilities. "Pixie becomes a pro at climbing, Madboy gains an iron fist, and the dog Rex develops astonishing senses of hearing and smell. "Your job is to cleverly utilize their different abilities to free the kooky inventor Dr. Samuelsen from the evil Krank Brothers who are attacking from the center of the Earth." It'll boast six worlds, as well as three obligatory Wii mini games inevitably featuring some form of Remote-waving action. Check the shots below and video to the right." Screen shots: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/viewer.php?mode=article&id=202920 Was looking froward to this game when it was on the xbox, then it got cancelled. Glad its got another chance on the wii.
