Nintendo 3DS

3D Game Collection

You may be thinking that this is a little bit of a pointless review. Although we won’t deny that it pretty much does what it says on the tin, to quote an advert that we hope people still remember, Nintendo’s 42 All Time Classics on DS was a...

Games I keep meaning to play

As is evidenced by the declining number of reviews I’ve written for this site over the past decade, I haven’t really been playing or writing about as many games as I’d like. Once or twice a year I go manic and indulge, usually every October (traditionally the month...

Sega gears up for 3DS’s Virtual Console

Sega recently announced the first batch of GameGear games that’ll be appearing on the 3DS’s Virtual Console. If you missed the announcement, the line-up comprises Sonic & Tails 2, Sonic Drift 2, The GG Shinobi, Dragon Crystal: Shirai’s Maze and Columns. Why they chose to use the Japanese...

StreetPass is class

So, you’re out and about walking around town with your Nintendo 3DS tucked in your pocket in sleep mode. You get home and, hey presto, a flashing light is emitting from the 3DS. No, not the small amber flashing light – that’s to indicate wireless. The light we’re...

About a Boy

The Nintendo 3DS is released in the UK today. Being at the cutting edge of games journalism, we can bring you a complete look at Nintendo’s first 3D hardware. That is to say: the Virtual Boy. Not the 3DS. Back in 1995 Nintendo went head first – no...

A 2D Nintendo 3DS launch guide

The 3DS launch line-up is a funny thing. There’s a lack of an easily indefinable system seller, while the likes of THQ, Take-Two and Activision don’t have a single title ready. On more positive note, however, it’s quite astonishing that Ubisoft has managed to get six games due...

Nintendo’s willingness to charge more

This week’s shenanigans from retail group The Hut – shoving up listings for the Nintendo 3DS priced at £300 (now changed to pre-order pages) – got me thinking. The 3DS is set to be Nintendo’s most expensive piece of hardware since the Nintendo 64, 14 long years ago....

What do we know about Saints Row?

The announcement of Saints Row: Drive By for the Nintendo 3DS was a bit of a strange one. Now that the E3 dust has settled, it finally makes sense – it’s to be a conversion of an upcoming Xbox Live Arcade game. Nintendo “really wanted it” on their...

E3: Nintendo’s 3D future

Nintendo’s E3 conference started off with a video of Zelda, now titled fully Zelda: Skyward Sword. Here, the Motion Plus is used to give Link free movement of his sword – at one point during the video Link waved it in circles to make a door with eyes...

E3 Kings

E3 kicks off next week. Because we have a fear of air hostesses (and in-flight meals) we won’t be attending. We will though be covering the conferences from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo and writing a round-up of all the other good stuff announced. Microsoft start off the conferences...

Nintendo announce 3D DS – the 3DS

Nintendo love their new DS versions. This one however, is rather more impressive than the previous iterations – Nintendo have just announced the existence of the Nintendo 3DS, a DS with 3D screens, that don’t require any special glasses. Not much more is known at this point, other...
