  1. First up this isn’t a brand new update for the game thread before anyone gets excited sorry. Moreso it’s a thread I’ve created simply because I can’t find any info on this here or a thread of its own currently so I thought I’d do one now. I picked it up earlier while browsing for something to get for my 3DS and as it’s not too long ago that I went through FF XII for the first time, thought why not seeing as it’s supposedly a sequel of sorts set shortly after the main game. I know many on here already cherish FF XII and it’s recent ish remaster. I’ve not player it yet but will be taking it while I’m away on holiday to tinker with, and wanted to get a bit of a conversation going on here to see who else has checked it out previously. Maybe it might inspire others to pick it up or return back to it. I know next to nothing about it other than a friend of mine had told me he went through it in the past and enjoyed it.
  2. So here it is. I guess maybe we could bring out the more positive sides of all things Nintendo? I dunno. Discuss.

Nintendo have opted for a more low key E3 this year, perhaps wisely leaving Sony and MS to tear chunks out of each other on the big stage, whilst Nintendo delivers their message via more.... direct means. I can't really find much chatter about what Nintendo might have in store for 3DS owners, but I'm sure we'll get something from them. Zelda U Retro Studios (Star Tropics) New Bundle/Price What They Need To Show: They need games and game changers. It's no secret that the Wii U has had an appalling start. With third parties seemingly abandoning ship, it's left for Nintendo to turn things around. Lucky for them of course, they happen to own some of the most lucrative franchises in the business, and along with some of the industries defining talent, they should make a big splash at E3, even if they are in a smaller pool this year.

  4. According to NeoGAF the next-gen only rumour should be taken with a pinch of salt as it's from a different source than the rest.Animated loading sequences, who said they were running out of ideas!
  5. For those who missed out on 2 and 3 on the DS you can now reorder new stock from Amazon and PlayAsia. (The first one has also been reprinted.) Thanks to http://tinycartridge.../etrian-odyssey for the news.
  6. So after months of not touching my consoles or handhelds I finally took the courage to start up my Wii and play Skyward Sword. Well I wish I could say that but the only reason I did so was because my video card crapped out on me and thus rendering my PC useless other than to: Porn, Facebook and Rllmuk (yes, in that order). I'm now 20 hours in to SS and it made me realize how much of a void there was for me as far as pure gaming glee goes. It's been said a thousand times already but Nintendo games do have a certain unique charm to them that make most, if not all, of their titles a joy to play. Even if the latest Zelda is a bit by the numbers it's still a much better experience than most games. Not that other recent titles are bad or anything but there's just something about playing a game by yourself, without achievements (glorified grinds more like!), no online hassles, and NGC era graphics all while waving your arms around like a loon. Simpler times no? Anyway I digress... What I'm saying is: I've rediscovered the Nintendo fanboy inside but fear for what I have been missing out on all these years. Especially on (3)DS and Wii. I'm looking forward to the new Pokemon and Luigi's Mansion games but what else is out there that you would consider essential titles for these systems, past or upcoming? Games I already own are: Wii Super Paper Mario Wario Land: The Shake Dimension Xenoblade Chronicles Super Mario Galaxy Goldeneye 007 Deadspace Extraction Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Red Steel 2 Okami No More Heroes Muramasa The Demon Blade Metroid Prime 3 Madworld DS/3DS Advance Wars: Dual Strike Metroid Prime Hunters Mario Kart DS Tony Hawk's American Sk8land New Super Mario Bros. Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story Mario Kart 7 Kid Icarus: Uprising The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass 3D Classics Kid Icarus 3D Classics Kirby's Adventure Pullblox I tell ya, taking a break from PC gaming (Steam) and not having to look at your pile of shame (which at times can make it seem like a list of chores rather than entertainment) can be pure bliss! Let's put all our effort into making sure this becomes a list thread eh? No filler, just quality titles. ps. I've never played Minish Cap. Dont lynch me.
  7. I am currently on holiday in Japan and I just have a DS to play games with, I was wondering what would be good to play on the DS outside of RPG's. I bought Ninokuni and DQ9 and I need a break from the walls of text. I am looking for something like Bangaio spirit, which I have back home. Is there anything else on the DS that offers all out action? Help me rllmuk.
  8. In recent year we've seen the launch of the 3DS and the PS Vita. Both did terrible at retail, although 3DS sales picked up after a price drop and Nintendo rolling out some big guns like Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and recently New Super Mario Bros 2. The Vita still seems to be struggling despite a pretty strong launch line-up and some excellent downloadables, and even big shots at Sony are now going public with statements that it's hard to cement third party software. Looking at the festive season, the release schedule for both seem to be pretty dire. Am I being overly pessimistic, or is the often heard argument that people grab their iPhones/Androids for quick fix gaming on the road true after all? That the market for true, console-depth games for mobile platforms has pretty much dried up apart from a niche group of interested people? I got this lovely Vita and 3DS lying next to me and there doesn't seem to be coming out much of interest for months, WHY?
  9. Times: UK: June 5th 5:00 PM BST EU: June 5th 6:00 PM CET US: June 5th 9:00 AM PST US: June 5th 12:00 PM EST Video Streams: http://www.nintendo....nintendo_direct http://e3.gamespot.c...ce/nintendo-e3/ http://www.gametrailers.com/e3/ http://www.g4tv.com/...s/nintendo/136/ http://www.youtube.com/user/E3 What Are We Expecting: Nintendo's conference has about as clear a focus as you could get. The re-reveal of their next gen Wii U console is almost certainly going to be the talk of E3. Unlike other console manufacturers, Nintendo probably won't be blazing the machines specs up on their ceiling high screen, but what we will doubtless be getting, is the highly anticipated reveal of Nintendo's first foray in HD development. Anticipated Wii U games include: Pikimin 3 New Super Mario Bros Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U Fit Wii U Sports Darksiders 2 Dragon Quest X Killer Freaks From Outer Space Lego City Stories It's not clear if last year's Zelda tech demo indicates that Link's first HD adventure will be revealed, but regardless, anticipate plenty of exciting software announcements from the big N. Aside from games, all eyes will be on the final details of the Wii U's tablet controller, and we can expect plenty of showcase demonstrations of how the tablet, Wiimote and games will work together to create innovative gameplay experiences. Another aspect of the Wii U which everyone is anticipating, is what type of OS and online services it will provide. Will Nintendo finally be dropping friends codes, were the rumors of EA's Origin service playing a role pan out, or will they be going it alone? Unfortunately, Nintendo have confirmed that they will not be announcing either the Wii U's price or release date at the conference, but with all that lot, there should be no shortage of news to keep us busy. Of course Nintendo won't just be talking about the Wii U. Last year the 3DS had a hell of a show, with announcements such as Super Mario 3D, Luigi's Mansion 2 and Super Smash Brothers 3DS stealing the show. There's no reason to suspect they won't be announcing an equally compelling roster of 3DS games, and already there are announcements/rumours that we'll be seeing: Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask Animal Crossing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Monster Hunter 4 Assassin’s Creed: Lost Legacy Paper Mario Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright LEGO Lord of the Rings Harvest Moon: A New Beginning Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Nintendo have plenty to share, and all being well, there will be no shortage of news and announcements to keep us talking. What We Got: Pre-E3 Conference: [media=] All credit to tnman for putting together a great summary of Nintendo's pre-E3 event together: Controller to be called 'Wii U Gamepad'. 'Proper' analogue sticks with 'click button' rather than 3DS-style thumb pad. Gamepad also a TV remote. Wii U Pro Controller (above) - looks very much like 360 controller with right stick and buttons swapped. Some sort of Wii U internet hub for discussion on help for games and what-not. Smartphone app for Nintendo network/Wii U internet hub shown. 'Mii Wara Wara'/'Miiverse' - the home screen for the Wii U is akin to 3DS' Streetpass Plaza. Miiverse can be accessed by all games - e.g. after dying on Mario speech bubbles will pop up on the black screen saying 'Can't believe I died there!' etc. Can post screenshots from your Wii U. Curtains. Not all features at launch. Main-E3 Conference: What did we get.... well there's a good question, what exactly did Nintendo deliver at their main conference, that would ensure the Wii U was seen as an exciting, relevant new console? Well it started well enough, there was the typically quirky intro, which this time showed Shigeru Miyamoto preparing for the conference with the help of some Pikmin. This led into a live demo of Pikmin 3, and the first full demo of the Wii U in action. Following this, we had Reggie (whose body remains ready) on stage for a more in depth look at the Wii U. In spite of Reggie's initial promise of a show which would spotlight 23 Wii U titles, we were delivered one of the most lackluster showings for a new hardware unveiling in recent memory. Sure there was New Super Mario Brothers 2, a not un-intersting look at Zombie-U, an extensive look at Lego City Undercover and the quasi Home like social gaming network of Nintendo World, but rather than offering gamers a first glimpse at the big N's tent pole franchises - which would demonstrate why exactly they chose to bolt a screen into their new controller - we were treated to a overly long demo of the now 8 month old Arkham City. A showing which did nothing to alleviate concerns about the use of the tablet controller for much beyond inventory/maps and gimmicks, or for that matter, the technical ability of the machine itself. Elsewhere a new Scribblenaughts was briefly demonstrated, although it remains unclear as to what type of game it's going to be, and a showreel which featured (amongst others) Mass Effect 3, Assassins Creed 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines and Darksiders 2 should send warning flares up about just how much support third party developers are actually going to give the machine. In terms of hardware, the tablet controller got a nice showcase video, which confirmed that the controller itself will include both an accelerometer and gyroscope, along with both a camera and built in microphone. Also present is rumble support, a headphone jack, volume controls, and support for Near filed communications. The console will also be compatible with past Wii controllers, including the Wiimote, nun chuck and balance board. The biggest news was that the Wii U now supports two Gamepad controllers (the official name of the tablet controller), and that a classic pad is being made available, which bears a striking resemblance to the 360 controller. The 3DS got a brief bit of time, which after we got through a knuckle suckingly scripted bit of banter between Reggie and Scott Moffitt, included a first look at Paper Mario: 3DS, a re-unveiling of Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon, and a showreel featuring snippets from: Castlevania Lords of Shadow, Epic Mickey Power of Illusion, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Drop Dream Distance, Lego City Undercover and Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon. The Wii U side of things was rounded out by a mercifully short demonstration of Just Dance 4, and a closer look at the aforementioned Nintendo World, and that was that. The whole conference went by in a blur to be honest, and it amazes me that so much time was dedicated to Batman: Arkham City, whilst a new exclusive propery from Platinum Games (Project P-100) was relegated to an after show interview. Much like Sony with Vita, Nintendo needed to make good on their claims of wanting to bring the core back to Nintendo consoles, but with a paltry showing of third party titles (token support from EA, and nothing from Activision) and precious little from Nintendo themselves, they could not have given the Wii U a more timid start. Additional Information: Developer discussion with Wii U hardware producer Katsuya Eguchi: - Tuesday, June 5, 11:30 PM PT 3DS Showcase: http://www.nintendo....nintendo_direct UK: June 3th 2:00 AM BST EU: June 6th 3:00 AM CET US: June 6th 6:00 PM PST US: June 6th 9:00 PM EST If anyone has any further information about how and where these conferences will be streamed, then let me know and I'll update the OP. Otherwise, I imagine the links at the top will update accordingly.

  11. The first real details on what will probably be the last relevant NDS title are in! Pokémon Black & White version 2 (or shorter: Pokémon Black & White 2) may have a number in the title rather than a new set of colours, but it looks like the game is all new, with a completely new cast of characters, a new location, and a (partially?) new set of critters. Obviously there's a new male and female lead character. As with Black & White, you can select between male and female characters. Both have a sporty look. The female lead seems to have Princess Leia hair bunches. Joining the two new leads are (of course) a new set of friends. Introducing "Rival" (prel. name), the main character's childhood friend. Also introduced is Akuroma, a mysterious man who appears to be a researcher who's conducting research into the strengths of Pokémon. So far, only two gym leaders have been mentioned: Homika and Shizui. Homika is good with poison type Pokémon, and seems to love playing the guitar. Shizui is good with water types. The game also has a new location. While it's still set in Unova Region, you start off from the new town of Hiougi City, which is located in the South of Unova. Facilities introduced include your house, a viewing area that offers full views of the city, and a Pokémon Center and trainer's school. You can also expect to see some new facilities. The new Unova Pokédex will contain a combination of familiar Pokémon (there's been a confirmation of Psyduck, Riolu, Tirantar, Lapras, Arcanine and Metagross) and Unova Pokémon. Seems like a "best of" Pokédex to me It doesn't look like every aspect will be reborn innovatively, but then again who was expecting this. Hopefully it'll be more than a DLC for Pokémon Black & White though. Still, this'll be the final NDS Pokémon game, before the inevitable announcement of a true 3DS sequel featuring fully animated 3D Pokémon, Street Pass fuctionality and AR support. In my dreams... The game's supposed to hit Europe in November 2012. Very first magazine scans: English teaser trailer:

  14. This has been out for a couple of weeks now, so surprised there's no thread ... It's a 'game' for the DS. It comes with two activity monitors, which measure your steps taken each minute during the day, and then whenever you connect the monitor to the DS it downloads your data and looks at how much you've walked and when. You can hook up to four monitors to one card, and then compare records against each other. I've been using it for a week and it does help to highlight where my activity patterns vary between weekdays and weekends, and also how my working pattern in Saudi is appallingly bad for me. Which is no surprise. My girlfriend is very competitive about it as well, which means that I has a good incentive to walk to work this morning (in addition to the fact the DLR wasn't running ..) Anyone else using this?
  15. From GameCube Europe: Henceforth, Animal Crossing DS will be known as Animal Crossing: Wild World. The game will be released under that name in America on December 5th 2005, however a European date is still "TBD". Our best guess is that it will be along sometime in the first half of 2006 - Nintendo have promised Europeans won't have to wait as long for the DS incarnation as they did for the Cube version! When it launches, the game will support the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, allowing you to visit your friend's in-game towns, wherever your friend lives in the world!
