Joystiq’s, JC, sheds some light on this remake for the 3DS: Most important of all, it feels, mechanically, like Cave Story. In my opinion, a great deal of the lasting appeal of the original comes from how responsive the controls are, and how enjoyable the basic jumping and shooting feel — think about holding the machine gun down to jetpack […]
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 way of showing off the […]
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 element for a Zelda game […]
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 play through the Green Hill […]
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. This was a really interesting use of the new controller, but it did a great job of showing off the sensitivity of the touch screen. While […]
Another Wii U tech demo available at E3 2011 was “Shield Pose.” In this rhythm based game, you must block shots from enemy pirate ships in front of you, to your left, and to your right. You must time it correctly and also be in the right spot. As soon as I got my hands on it, I realized that […]
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 players. The two-player team runs, […]
If you have read my game reviews before, you will notice that I enjoy a good sports video game. FIFA 12 is coming out on the Nintendo 3DS, and I got some hands-on time with it at E3 2011. While the game looks just all right in 2D mode, it really comes alive when you push up the 3D slider. […]
While it might not be entirely close, here is a bit of street soccer gameplay from FIFA 12 for Nintendo 3DS from the E3 2011 floor. I apologize for the far-off view, as it was difficult to get a good shot. You may want to watch full screen in HD in order to see better.
I was able to spend some time talking with a Nintendo representative about the upcoming Kirby game for Nintendo DS called, “Kirby Mass Attack.” It is an entirely touch-based game, and it will be out this September.
Here is some gameplay from the upcoming Wii title, “Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident” from E3 2011.
Here is some gameplay from an E3 2011 demo of “Captain America: Super Soldier” for Wii. They also had the PS3 and 360 versions running on the sides, so you will also see a bit of comparison shots.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is soon approaching for Wii. Check out a couple gameplay videos, which show off more of the game than seen before. Dungeon Boss Battle
In the Wii U tech demo from E3 2011, Shield Pose, players use rhythm and direction to block incoming arrows.
