Nintendo News: Slidepad, Games, and Release Dates

by on September 13, 2011 >> 3D3DSNewsTokyo Game ShowWii

That bulky add on is coming soon to Japan on December 10th (which means an American release can’t be far away) for the low price of 1500 Yen (roughly 20 bucks). It will thankfully be supported by some of the games that really need it like: Monster Hunter, Resident Evil: Revelations, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, and Kingdom Hearts 3D. Unfortunately, the slidepad attachment will also be supported by a battery, rather than the 3DS itself which means two things: It won’t add any extra battery life to the 3DS, and this damn thing will now need even more battery power to run.

More news after the break involving 3D video, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, and more.

Star Fox 64 3D is really just an upgraded port of the original game from 15 years ago. The graphics here are crisp and the gameplay is as solid as ever, but does that mean you should go spending 40 dollars on something you may have already played once before? Read on to find out.

3D Review: Fright Night 3D

by on August 19, 2011 >> 3DMoviesReviews

Editor’s Note: the point of this review is primarily to determine whether or not the added 3D effect is worth an extra three bucks, with a bit about the movie itself towards the end.

Typically, when you see a dark film in 3D, you don’t actually see much of anything. Wearing darkened glasses on top of an already dark movie is rarely a good idea. Now, Fright Night is a film that takes place almost entirely during the night, because well, Vampires don’t exactly come out during the day. But the thing about something “rarely” being good is that every once in a while you get an exception to the rule. Keep reading for the juicy details.
