Upcoming Projects (hopefully)

We been AWOL for a while, I’m hoping to get a few things done outside of school and work in the next few months.

A) 3ds reviews

B) Reviews of the big games coming out this holiday

C) News for Xbox and 3ds

hoping I can get it done.  I think I will work on a review of a 3DS game first, but which one?


More Comicon news

Ok first off, Freddy Kruger as is in Mortal Kombat as dlc.  He comes out August 9th on both systems. Next a Star Wars teamed xbox was announced.  A white R2D2 system and Kinect with a gold C3PO controller.  It will also come with the Kinect Star Wars game.  I beleive the price will be 399.99 someone correct me if I am wrong.  I haven’t gotten to work to check it yet.  Also Capcom announced that they have canned Mega Man Legends 3, which to me is a huge dissapointment!

On the positive side, X-Men: Destiny officially has a release date!  September 27, 2011.  Also the new Spiderman game, Edge of Time has an October 4, 2011 release date.  I must wonder, why the heck is everything coming out between September and November?  Halo: Anniversary collection is slated for a November 15th release date with preorder bonuses from Gamestop and Walmart (An ingame skull, Grunt Funeral, and an armor set of Master Chief for your avatar for both) as of now I am not aware of other bonuses as Best Buy doesn’t seem to have anything going on…YET.

More Star Wars neww, The Old Republic Online has announced the collectors edition, it includes….

  • Exclusive Gentle Giant Darth Malgus statue
  • Game disks collectible metal case
  • The Journal of Master Gnost-Dural as annotated by Satele Shan
  • The Old Republic galaxy map
  • Music of Star Wars: The Old Republic CD
  • High-quality Collector’s Edition box
  • Includes 7 additional Digital Items:
  • Flare Gun: Fire flares into the air
  • Training Droid: Hovers at your side for combat assistance
  • HoloDancer: Project your own holographic dancer
  • HoloCam: Keep visual records of in-game adventures
  • STAP: Sleek and unique in-game vehicle
  • Exclusive Mouse Droid: Spunky Droid to join your adventures
  • Exclusive Collector’s Edition Store: Unique in-game vendor with an assortment of items
  • Custom Security Authentication Key

All this will cost you about 150 bucks.  I think that is all I have as of now. I hope I didn’t miss anything, a lot has happened in the past few days.

Review- 3DS

I have picked up a 3DS a few weeks ago while on a trip to see my buddy graduation.  I have a little time on it and want to share my thoughts on  it.  First thing’s first the graphics are stunning for a handheld, I feel like its on Par with the late Gamecube early Wii games.  I bought DOA on it and it seems up to par with its console counterpart on the Xbox 360 which amazes me.

The 3-D is pretty cool but actually is not what I was thinking it would be the way it was being marketed, but I enjoy it.  The set up is almost exactly the same as the DSI, which isn’t a bad thing at all.  The marketplace is also well for just starting.  Excitebike, Donkey Kong, and Link’s Awakening are among the games that are already on there with Excitebike being free for like the first week it was up.
