Review: Elite Beat Agents (DS)

The rhythm based games genre has seen a boom ever since the Guitar Hero and Dance Dance series hit stores. Early in the Nintendo DS’ life, they were not any rhythm based games available for it apart from Elite Beat Agents.

Let’s find out.  Continue reading for the review! - Mark K. Continue Reading →

First trailer of Beyond the Labyrinth

Konami has released the first trailer of Beyond the Labyrinth, sadly it’s in Japanese. The trailer is quite short; it’s not even a minute long, but I think the game looks quite good, and the animation looks pretty fluid. Click here to view it! - Mark (Assistant Admin)

ATV Wild Ride 3D Announced by Jools Watsham, Looking for a Publisher

Renegade Kid’s Jool Watsham has announced ATV Wild Ride 3D, a sequel to the well received ATV Wild Ride for the Nintendo DS. Currently the game doesn’t have publisher, but it boasts four player online play and four player local play. You can perform dozens of airborne tricks, and if you land three “hard” tricks you enter  “Wild Ride” mode; increasing your overall speed for a short period of time. Wild Ride 3D will feature 24 tracks, which are upgraded from the last game.

It’s sounding pretty awesome, and I hope that Renegade Kid get this game out before December, when Mario Kart 7 will be launched.  Check out some gameplay after the break! - Mark Continue Reading →

4.3 Million Nintendo 3DS Units Sold So Far

The folks at Nintendo have revealed their financial results for Q1 2011.  They’re not terrible, but I can certainly see why Nintendo chose to cut the Nintendo 3DS price.  According to the results, Nintendo has sold 4.3 million units of the 3DS so far.  That’s a rise of 700,000 units from launch. That isn’t that much, but it should be expected seeing as there’s not been a lot of great games released for the Nintendo, we’re only just getting games like Ocarina of Time 3D and The Mercenaries 3D.  Nintendo have revealed that 13.96 million units of software have been sold so far, which is quite a success.

Weekly 3DS Discussion| The Nintendo eShop

This is one of the features I’ve been thinking about doing for quite sometime now. Weekly Discussion (kind of like Iwata Asks) is when me and Greg discuss Nintendo 3DS related stuff. It can be anything from a game to even Hideki Konno.

Weekly Discussion is here to let you readers know about me and Greg’s raw opinions of subjects, something I tend not to do when I write regular articles. Sometimes Greg and I may completely agree on something, sometimes we may not. These discussions are not artificial, they are real.

Weekly Discussion will be posted every Monday! Hit the break to find out about what me and Greg think of Nintendo’s latest online endeavor! - Mark Continue Reading →
