New Kid Icarus: Uprising Details

Posted: June 7, 2011 by Camcam281 in 3DS

Ok, so the big N also release a lot more game details on Pit’s new adventure for the 3DS. We knew the basic info like ground and air combat, etc, etc. But now, we know a lot more! We now know that this game will feature online multiplayer! It is a 3 on 3 game where you work as teams to kill the other team. Simple, but an awesome add-on. Also, they added AR games! This is really cool because you can place down say a Pit and a Boss AR card. And the characters will come out of the card and fight each other! The only thing else I could have hoped for is at least a release month, but no such luck. All we know for now, is that the game will be released before the end of this year. Below is a picture of the AR cards!

Ok, so the new console was just announced! As I personally don’t like the name that much, this console is one to talk about. First, lets talk about the all new controller design and functionality. This new controller, as seen above features a 6.2-inch touch screen in the middle, with duel analog stick on either side, a front-facing camera, a D pad and A,B,X, and Y buttons. Also, R and L buttons, AND XR and XL buttons on the back. Now, this is not just controller, it is also another wireless option for home console gaming.

Say you are playing your wii U on your families TV and your sister or brother decide they want to watch TV. So all you have to do, it change the TV to a TV program, and your game (such as Super Mario Bros) is now in the palm of your hands and you can exit the room while still continuing the same game, just on a smaller screen. Not just that, but this controller also has some new and welcomes features worth mentioning.

This controller, since it has the touch screen, it has so many options for gaming companies and Nintendo to make and release in later times. Some of the features of the controller include: Face chat using the front facing camera, Web Browsing, a Gyroscope, an accelerometer, and a mic. Overall, I am very impressed with the controller layout and design and I cant wait to get my hands on it. But remember, the console is also pretty important in this!

The console (as seen below) fashions an Xbox 360 shape/design with a pure white look. Overall, this system looks very stylish and modern. Concerning the graphics, they are easily AT LEAST up to par with the 360 and PS3, if not higher. Over, this system seems amazing and cant wait to get my hands on it. A list of the announced games will be posted soon so stay tooned!

Microsoft showed off their new Xbox 360 dashboard which as well as making changes to the interface that allows for much easier navigation using controller, gesture (with Kinect) or voice it also adds youtube, bing and live TV functionality. The update will also add cloud storage for gamertags including save files; so no more gamertag recoveries.

There is also the added feature called ‘beacons’ which will tell your friend on Xbox Live and Facebook what you want to play and if other friends are playing or also want to play the same game, the specifics of this system are not yet known but it is sounding like a good way to get your friends attention if you want to play a game with them.

The Xbox 360 dashboard update will be available worldwide this fall.

 

“Did i ever tell you the definition of insanity?”

Well Far Cry 3 has been announced with a live gameplay demonstration at E3 which delivers impressive graphics, story telling and gameplay. The cover system seems very smooth in transitioning automatically when close to an object, while taking cover the player has the ability to blindfire; something that isn’t too common amongst FPS.

There is some great acting on the part of the ‘bad guy’ who makes an impression as a sadistic villain. It will be interesting to see how this character develops and how well the story is presented; so far things are looking good for Far Cry 3 which is set to be released in 2012 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
