Bare in mind that the Wii sold for $250 at launch, and was about $158 to make. An unnamed source from ForgetTheBox [...]
One of the most anticipated franchise releases for Wii U is probably The Legend of Zelda. For a game that already has a reputation of great looking epic worlds, every fan knows that it could look even better in full HD graphics. Until now, that has only been a glimmer in our minds-eye. As a [...]
After playing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword last year at E3, I was excited to see more of the game this year. Unfortunately, they did not have much more. What was available was a bird-flying demo, dungeon, and boss battle. Due to time restraints, I could only choose one, so I chose the newest [...]
After playing through both the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Sonic Generations at SEGA’s “Sonic Boom” event, I was ready to finally get my hands on the Nintendo 3DS version. On the final day of E3 2011, I made my way to the SEGA booth to try it out. I was able to [...]
In another Wii U tech demo from E3 2011, players are told to use the stylus to draw different lengths of lines, shapes, and angles. You can compete against yourself or a second player.

One of the Wii U tech demos at E3 2011 was called, “Battle Mii.” In it, two Mii players dressed in Samus costumes use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to shoot down the third player. That player uses the new controller and screen to fly around the level in an attempt to shoot the opposing [...]
At first glance, it seems that Konami is simply copying Professor Layton with their upcoming game, “Doctor Lautrec & the Forgotten Knights.” The Nintendo 3DS title feels much like Layton, but it expands on it in many ways. After some hands-on time, I can say that it looks beautiful both in the cinematic cutscenes and [...]
Sega is bringing back Shinobi on the Nintendo 3DS. I was able to play this brand new adventure at E3 2011, and it feels and looks very good. While, it is not the best looking game that I have seen for the 3DS, but it looks nice. As opposed to many side-scrolling beat-em-ups, you must [...]
Square Enix is bringing a cooperative action-adventure RPG to Nintendo 3DS in early 2012 with “Heroes of Ruin.” The demo I played at E3 2011 was only single-player, but the final version will have at least two-player local and online co-op, with a possibility of four players. They are still working on that. In a [...]
