I am here to say, that one of people’s favorite fighters, or at least one of my favorite fighters has finally been ported to mobile. What classic fighter game do I speak of? Well of course that would be Tekken, and this is the installment of Tekken 3D: Prime Edition.
Hmm, music and RPG styled gameplay, that just doesn’t really seem to go along all that much together. It sounds like comparing apples and oranges but in a more digital perspective. Like with anything else, someone decided to get on their high horse, beat the odds, and here now we have a game that features both of those elements. And thus born is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.
Today we have a little bit of something interesting coming from the Nintendo market, specifically more towards the Nintendo 3DS, so finally after catching shit for nearly a year, this look like one of the more interesting things. This would happen to be Heroes of Ruin.
The story kind of follows typical bullshit that most RPG games do though, like someone or something (in this case, a ruler of the city of Nexus) in trouble and this hero being sent out to do whatever it is that needs to be done (which also, find the cure of the curse and remove evil). So to me, this is where it starts to get interesting. Players will be able to take on the role of one of four classes. These classes are: The Vindicator, The Gunslinger, The Alchitect, and the Savage. So, the Vindicator is a warrior class, basically like a paladin. The Gunslinger, I think that’s pretty self-explanatory. The Alchitect is a magician essentially. And The Savage, well, just imagine a barbarian and you pretty much got it.
So more neat things, let’s see here…oh yes! I forgot to mention that while this is on the 3DS, players can play co-op with each other in the game, so anyone plus three other friends can play at the same time (also badass for the DS in my opinion). Players can also drop in and drop out at any point. Heroes of Ruin uses both StreetPass and SpotPass technology, for these sorts of options to be available. Using StreetPass though, players can use a feature called “Trader’s Network” and trade items with other players. There’s a shop that players can sell items for points, and in turn use those points to buy other items. Also, using SpotPass, players can complete daily challenges.
So with all this in mind, it seems like the Nintendo really got the ball rolling on something pretty bad ass here. If you’re into the whole RPG thing, go check it out. And if you’ve got friends that like RPG games and have a 3DS, well shit, get 3 of them and play! Until next time, battle on gamers.
I’ll admit, when I first saw Lego games coming out and saw what they were like, I honestly said, “Those look like fucking stupid kid games.” WOW was I wrong! I cannot tell you how often I spent an evening intoxicated with a 6 pack of beer and playing the Lego games because they were that fun. We’ve already seen the likes of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and yes the Dark Knight himself, and that’s what this article is covering actually, the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game.
According to sources, the game is actually a sequel to the previous Lego Batman, and will feature a large variety of playable DC characters within the Batman realm and also outside of the Batman realm. A new thing that this game will feature that I think is a first within the Lego series (if not whatever) is dialogue, which is AWESOME! It’s better than hearing grunts and whatever sounds the characters make and makes the game’s story a lot better in my opinion.
If that wasn’t all cool enough for you, there’s definitely more. The new Lego Batman will feature an open world concept and feature gameplay similar to its predecessor. As mentioned before players will get to play as characters in the Batman realm, but also other iconic characters from the DC world will be playable including: Batman (naturally), Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Green Lantern, The Flash, Black Canary, Superman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Cyborg, Aquaman, and of course Wonder Woman. According to rumors, there will be over 70 playable characters (so I’m guessing supervillains as well from the DC comics). The game will feature a 2-player co-op mode, and since the environment is open-world they will split the screens (THANK GOD!!)
Whew, that was definitely a shit ton of information in such a small article. But yes, for those of you Batman fans who liked the Lego games or maybe haven’t tried them, PICK THIS FUCKING GAME UP!! Enough said, if you gamers haven’t played the first one, do it so you know what you’re in for.
There really is nothing better than killing zombies and weird creatures that definitely need a bullet in the head. Enter the world of Resident Evil: Revelations, and of course this installment of the famed survival-horror series is special, because it’s been made available only for Nintendo’s portable gaming system the Nintendo 3DS.
The gameplay style that we have grown adjusted to since the creation of Resident Evil 4 continues in this installment of the famed zombie survival horror series. Although they did decide to throw a curve ball in this game, that being players can switch over to first-person-view to have better control over their weapon when firing. Another cool feature that players have is to send in-game supplies to friends via the StreetPass, which is a feature of the Nintendo 3DS.
A little bit’s known about the game, like that it’s set in 2005 from the happenings in Resident Evil 4, and leads up to the events that occur in Resident Evil 5. Resident Evil: Revelations gives light on the establishment of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, which is a counter-terrorist group that was introduced in Resident Evil 5. The story in this place focuses on the co-founders Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, who were actually the main characters from the very first Resident Evil game.
So, with all this in mind, for all you Resident Evil fans, if you have a DS, this game is definitely worth picking up. So get to it!
We here at Gamer’s Dish have a new need. And that need is the Need for Speed. That’s right gamers, the developers of the Need for Speed series have set to release another installment of the Need For Speed Franchise with Need For Speed: The Run. This will be the 18th installment in the franchise, and has definitely marked itself as being unique amongst the rest.
Black Box has been working on Need For Speed: The Run for roughly three years now, and we finally get to see why. You gamers probably remember the old Need For Speed games, where the driver wasn’t visible, and basically just racing from one track to the next. Well, this time around, take that concept and throw it right out the window. This game has been totally revamped, in a few ways.
First off, in this installment of the Need For Speed series, there is actually a story that was built around this game. Players will take on the role of the protagonist Jack, who has got himself into a fair amount of trouble, mostly with the mafia. A contact of his, Sam, informs him of a way to be able to make a little bit of “fast” cash. To do this, Jack must put his skills to work, his racing skills that is. The challenge of course is for him to drive across the country in a nationwide race from San Francisco to New York in an event called “The Run.” The reward for achieving first place in New York is $25 million. But of course, something like this doesn’t come easy. With the long arm of the law and the mafia to deal with on this nationwide adrenaline rush, Jack also has to overtake spots from the other 200 members of “The Run.”
Another great feature to this game, is that players aren’t just racing across from one developed track in the game to the next, what they’re actually doing this time is racing in actual areas in the United States! Gamers will be racing from areas like San Francisco, going through Chicago, and some of the other great places that have twists and turns along the way.
Need For Speed: The Run definitely has put a new twist on the racing series. We believe here at Gamer’s Dish that The Run will set a new mark in the Need For Speed series. We’re very excited to have a non-stop adrenaline race to the finish. Gear up for this one gamers!
