Retailers shoot down 3DS returns due to headaches story

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 12 hours, 37 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:10:49 AM GMT
A report in tabloid The Sun of the 3DS making headaches in "thousands" of users is just plain untrue according to Nintendo, HMV and GAME, the three entities the paper mentions. Nintendo said returns are "well below" other hardware launches and GAME says less than five people have complained that the portable made them ill. In fact, you can't even return something in the UK because it made you sick (more)

3DS Power Pak + review: a battery of tests

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2451 days, 8 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 8:39:42 PM GMT
Nyko was first out of the gate with a product designed to ameliorate the 3DS's infamous battery life issue. The Power Pak + is a replacement battery that Nyko claims will double the runtime of the 3D handheld. Nyko sent Joystiq one of the packs, along with the optional Charge Base cradle (the Power Pak + uses the normal AC adapter, but is incompatible with the dock that ships with the 3DS) and I decided to put that claim to the test, and evaluate the device in a non-battery-life capacity as well.

THQ putting Kung Fu Panda 2 on Kinect, uDraw, DS and PS3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2452 days, 11 hours, 58 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:49:48 AM GMT
We've got evidence to support the existence of a secret, underground contest in the gaming industry to bring a single title to the strangest, most random collection of platforms imaginable. Our proof? THQ's recently outlined release strategy for Kung Fu Panda 2 -- an adaptation of Dreamworks' upcoming animated feature, which will have a PS3 version, DS version, a Kinect-enabled 360 version and a uDraw GameTablet version on Wii. Like, a contest's the only possible explanation, right? (more)

Nintendo building new R&D facility in Kyoto

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2452 days, 11 hours, 58 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:49:08 AM GMT
According to a report from Nikkan (as translated by Andriasang), Nintendo's planning on getting its proverbial ducks in a row with the construction of a new 12-billion-yen Research and Development facility in Kyoto's Minami Ward -- the same location as its Japanese headquarters. The gargantuan building will house 1,500 employees focused on product development, and is scheduled to break ground January 2012, with a projected completion date sometime the following year. (more)

Fez on WiiWare not 'worth our time and effort,' dev says

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2452 days, 12 hours, 31 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:16:48 AM GMT
It's pretty likely that Fez won't be gracing WiiWare, judging from some not-so-nice things one of the developers had to say regarding Nintendo's platform. Phil Fish, the game's co-creator, told Destructoid back at PAX East that "WiiWare just wouldn't be worth our time and effort," and described it as "a dismal system" that he avoids as both a consumer and a developer. "No demos? F*ck off," he concluded. Of course, there are demos on WiiWare now, but for years that wasn't the case. (more)

Review: Okamiden

posted by adminadmin 2467 days, 13 hours, 47 minutes ago
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 7:00:04 AM GMT
Okami is a beloved cult classic, but the game failed to meet sales expectations when it was first released on the PS2 back in 2006. Capcom recently stated that they believe that the game undersold because it was released so closely to the launch of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/Wii. (more)

Nyko unveils accessories to extend 3DS battery life

One of the biggest shortfalls of the Nintendo 3DS's feature set is its brief battery life, which Nintendo estimates to be as short as three hours. Where we see a disappointing feature, accessory manufacturer Nyko sees an opportunity. (more)

Playing DS on a 3DS is less than ideal

posted by adminadmin 2473 days, 14 hours, 23 minutes ago
Thursday, March 10, 2011 6:24:16 AM GMT
The Nintendo 3DS has a lot of cool features, one of which is backward compatibility with DS games. But while convenient, this backward compatibility is far from perfect. Because the screens on the 3DS have a higher resolution (400 x 240 on top, 320 x 240 on bottom, versus the DS's 256 x 192 screens) DS games are either upscaled to fit the bottom screen, or shown in tiny windows on both screens if you hold Start and Select while loading the game. In either case, it's not great. (more)

The Sims 3 3DS preview: A sim-ple port

posted by adminadmin 2487 days, 11 hours, 28 minutes ago
Thursday, February 24, 2011 9:19:23 AM GMT
It's a good thing people don't play The Sims for the graphics. The Sims 3 is not a looker on 3DS -- no matter how you adjust the three-dimensional slider. In an unfinsihed build of this launch game, the visuals lacked detail (even compared to versions of the game running on mobile phones) and the framerate was inadequate. Perhaps its saving grace, then, is in how The Sims 3 takes advtage of the 3DS's other unique features, making this particular iteration somewhat novel (especially compared to EA's other... (more)

Dead or Alive: Dimensions touch screen controls designed to reduce stress

Wednesday, February 23, 2011 6:45:19 AM GMT
The touch screen controls in the upcoming 3DS fighter, Dead or Alive: Dimensions, may seem sacrilege to brawler fans, but developer Team Ninja seems confident that they cater to many different players. The controls allow players to execute any technique or combo with a simple tap, essentially throwing practice out the window. Speaking to Siliconera, Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi noted that the touch-screen controls were implemented to "give players a chance to enjoy the beauty of 3D fighting games without ... (more)

The 3DS is set for launch on March 27 in the United States, and the games that are arriving along with it have just been announced. It's a diverse list of 18 games, and Nintendo is promising that at least 12 more titles will be released before "early June". There is a little something for everyone here, but not a whole lot in the way of killer apps. (more)

Apparently, LucasArts needs just a little more time than it anticipated to adequately polish the lightsabers of Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars -- the game has been pushed from its initial February 15 release date to March 22.

Reggie explains motivation for 3DS 'Play Coins'

The 3DS's "Activity Log" uses the built-in pedometer to track your steps, awarding players "Play Coins" for certain distances. Those Play Coins can then be used for unspecified unlocks within supported games. According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, this was included for two related reasons. (more)
