You may have already seen the Wii U footage of Sonic Lost World, but have you seen what it looks like for 3DS? IGN just recently released footage of the handheld version, and you might actually be surprised at the quality…
Pretty sweet don’t you think? The gameplay seems to be very close to the Wii U version, but the game will have complietly different levels from the Wii U version. It also features four player online and local multiplayer modes. Honestly, I’m just relieved it’s not in 2D space like the last two handheld titles. It looks like we’ll have two new Sonic titles to look forward to playing very soon, not to mention the other games both Nintendo and SEGA are partnering to bring to us. Which version will you get? -Dallas B.
I think that everyone should totally get Animal Crossing: New Leaf in it’s downloadable version; it’s a game you’ll wanna play all year round. Nintendo Global President, Satoru Iwata agrees:
Animal Crossing is a game that I hope people will play throughout the whole year. But we want people to play other games too. So something I would recommend is the digital download version. I think a title like Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which you can play throughout the year, is ideally suited to this format. That makes me sound a little like a salesman, doesn’t it? (laughs)
See? Iwata agrees with me, too. Think about it; you’re walking down the street and you think, “Hey, I really wish I had my Animal Crossing cartridge right now,” But wait, you actually do! You remember that you downloaded it into your 3DS, so you do have it with you! Of course, maybe you would prefer the physical copy… Which version will buy? -Dallas B.
In a recent interview with Official Nintendo Magazine, Aonuma spilled some of the beans on how the two new games will work:
“The new game (A Link To The Past 2) will play very differently to the original, I think the new additions will make players see the game in a different way. And, of course, we’ll introduce even more unexpected elements in the Zelda game that we’re making for Wii U.”
It sounds like things are looking good for the series with a promising Link to the Past sequel, and even more exciting the fact that we might get to see that awesome demo from to years ago as an actual game. What do you think the new game will be like? -Dallas B
Capcom’s E3 press invite might have some people interested:
“Come join us at this year’s E3 Expo to experience all new versions of forthcoming releases DuckTales: Remastered, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara,and Lost Planet 3 as well as the debut of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. And what’s more, we have a big surprise to share with you. To find out what it is you’ll have to head to booth # 2101 in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center.”
Whatever could this “big surprise” be?! -Dallas B.
It’s a question I feel most of us have already pondered: What if Link and Zelda switched roles? Just for one game? Aaron Diaz Is the guy who’s actually experimented with this quite genius idea.
The Legend of Zelda: Clockwork Empire is a fan based pitch for a Zelda game that takes place 2,000 years after the events of Twilight Princess. The Basic idea is that since every incarnation of Link has come from a different background, it’s possible that one incarnation could be a prince. That being said, who’s to say that Zelda couldn’t be the hero/savior that Link usually is? After all, weren’t Sheik and Tetra (two forms the girl’s already taken on) both heroes? Though, technically, the term would be heroine. To be honest, Im’ seriously considering a way to actually get this concept to Nintendo! But enough about what I think, what do you people think?!
Would The Legend of Zelda still be cool if it there was a game, ACTUALLY ABOUT ZELDA???-Dallas Clement

Very recently, Gaijin Games tweeted that the a large bug in the Wii U version of Runner 2 (Which causes the game to freeze when being shut down) can be easily fixed. In fact, it’s so easy that all you have to do is open the game, and the patch will start downloading automatically. How awesome is that?!
P.S. Look for my review on the game shortly! -Dallas Clement
It’s my last day at PAX, and I’m still having trouble comprehending the fact that I’m actually here.
PAX East is probably the best way to figure out which games to buy in the upcoming year, meet other peeps who share in your nerdy passions, and just nerd out in general. Every five minutes someone comes up to me and asks where I got my Adventure Time backpack, which is just baffling to me (it’s from Hastings btw). Yesterday I met Nintendo Fangirl, Paul and Storm, and Jonathan Coulten and I’ve gotta say, until you actually meet a famous person, its hard to comprehend that they’re just like you and me! I bought Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon a day before it was released in stores, (look for the review very soon) and as I write this, I’m standing in line to play an almost virtual reality version of the latest Dirt game.
So yeah, I’m basically in heaven right now, and I’m loving every minute of it. Looking forward to coming back again someday! -Dallas Clement
Rise of the Guardians is actually a movie I would recommend checking out. It’s got action, decent story, and sweet 3D visuals. Looks like (as always) a slew of video games have been made to advertise the movie. The cool thing about this version is that it’s the only one in 3D. Just like the movie, right? Um… just keep reading! -Dallas B.(more…)
When most people think of video games, they probably don’t expect to be taught anything useful. I you have to learn something, the game’s not fun, right? Not necessarily. In Art Academy: Lessons For Everyone, you’re taught painting and drawing techniques that you can actually use in real life. Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not! (more…)
