Some more gaming goodness :)

E3 is nearly done for this year and I just wanted to post some things that made my day and I’m looking forward to in the coming year, First of all, the big one Wii U, I really can’t wait til Nintendo start doing roadshows with this bad boy like they did with the Wii in 2006. I’ll be surprised if this isn’t the case as this is clearly yet another revolutionary console implementing a unique control system much as the Wii changed the market 5 years ago.

The other hot system revealed by Sony was the handheld formerly known as the NGP, which now has the final name of the PS Vita, Vita being Life in Latin. There were some incredible videos revealed for the Vita with Uncharted: Golden Abyss being a massive standout. Of particular importance was the US price revealed for the WiFi model which was $249.99. This is the same price that the 3DS costs in the US and the 3DS ended up costing $349.95AU. This hopefully means that Vita will follow the same pricing format and place it on even footing, price wise, with the Nintendo 3DS. The 3G & WiFi model was priced at $399.99US. Vid below showing the Vita’s capabilities and below that an Uncharted: Golden Abyss video…droolworthy 🙂

 

I managed to shift some EB store credit around and snagged the Zelda Collector’s Edition of the 3D remake of the Ocarina of Time for the 3DS which looks like this…

To see the awesome celebrations that Nintendo are doing to celebrate Zelda’s 25th anniversary, check out part 1 of the Nintendo E3 conference available HERE.

 

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is shaping up to be another sublime outing in the Uncharted canon, just check out the trailer below.

And lastly, just a great compilation video showcasing the games on Vita.

P.S. Anyone else think Uncharted’s Nathan Drake and Kevin Pereira from Attack of the Show share a striking similarity??

Nintendo E3 conference part 4

Part 4 is nothing but the Wii U and the exciting games in development that we can expect to see like Smash Bros., Batman Arkham City, Darksiders II, Tekken & Assassin’s Creed with some great video along the way. And with that, the conference came to an end, the only question that remains is…who won E3 2011?

Great 3DS showcase in part 3 covering Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Driver Renegade, Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions, Tekken 3D & Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D. He then talked about the eShop and the different titles available from DSiWare to Virtual Console and finally unleashed Project Cafe or as the world knows it now, Wii U. The revolutionary new controller was shown as well as the ability to stream content from the tv to the controller and back again!

Part 2 dealt mainly with 3DS announcements and the usual suspects, Mario Kart, Star Fox, new Mario game, Kid Icarus and Luigi’s Mansion 2. Reggie then came out and spoke about Mario Kart footage which looked mint! Footage of the other games followed which allowed amazing especially the new Mario game 🙂 Kid Icarus: Uprising is looking particularly tasty with some excellent flying scenes showcased as well as some AR card trickery.

Nintendo E3 conference Part 1

Nintendo launched their E3 2011 conference with great fanfare and even greater presentation to mark The Legend of Zelda’s 25th Anniversary which up until now we had seen nought about. The live orchestra was a nice touch as well 🙂 Part one is all Zelda!
