Green Gaming: The Top Eco-Friendly Games

In the last few years, “going green” has gone from an activity associated with well-meaning hippies to a full-on mainstream movement. We recycle, we seek out alternative energy sources, and yes, we even play games with eco-friendly messages. Heck, we've even turned the G4 logo at the top of the page green to bring some attention to the issue.

From the kid-activist outreach of 90s mascot games to the latest titles with a message, here are the mainstream video games that have taken the usual trope of “saving the world” and made it a little more literal.

Videogame Deathmatch Nerdfight Final Four: Assassin's Creed vs. Legend of Zelda vs. Mass Effect vs. StarCraft

Videogame Deathmatch has entered the Final Four! Assassin's Creed vs. Legend of Zelda and StarCraft vs. Mass Effect. It's a four-way showdown, pairing Assassin against Spectre, and Pointy-Eared boy vs. the entire Koprulu Sector. Who will come out on top during the battle for the championship? That part is up to you, so get over there and vote. Vote hard, until your index fingers need ice and balm.

This time, we're seeing what our top titles have to say for themselves. We put them all in a room to work things out on their own, so read on to see what went down. Ironically, the biggest franchise in the room is the smallest in stature. Regardless, there's no telling how this one will turn out once the barbs and insults start flying.

Analysis: August 2009 Hardware Sales -- Price Cuts Help, But Wii Still On Top

According to industry analysts at the NPD Group, videogame software sales were down 16 percent in March 2011, compared to March 2010's sales. Overall, the industry made $735.4 million through software sales in March, compared to $875.7MM in March 2010. These numbers represent physical sales of new software, not digital format sales.

"New physical retail software sales declined significantly," the NPD Group said today in a statement. "Software sales last year were marked by several marquee titles including Final Fantasy XIII, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and God of War III, which were all million plus unit sellers in March 2010."

The big story of the day on the internet is the rumor that Nintendo is planning to announce the existence of a brand new home console at E3 this year. There’s some circumstantial evidence that Nintendo plans to do this (unnamed sources, mainly) and while I’m not convinced there will be fire with the internet-smoke, if the Wii 2 is in development, I thought I'd put on my swami turban and make some predictions about the system. That way, when I turn out to be totally wrong, we'll have a record of it on the website.

In a nutshell, given the success Nintendo created this generation, I think the company is unlikely to make any major changes to the business plan that made the Wii the fifth best-selling console of all time. After all, why would they? With that in mind, here’s some predictions that I think it’s logical to expect from the Nintendo Wii 2--if it exists at all--as well as few features and innovations you most likely won't see with the release of the Nintendo Wii 2.

New Kirby Game Coming To Japan -- Atsumete! Kirby

According to an article in the Japanese magainze Famitsu, there's going to be a new Kirby game headed to the Nintendo DS (not the 3DS) in Japan called Atsumete! Kirby which roughly translates to Gather! Kirby. Atsumete! Kirby will be a side-scrolling action game where you can control up to ten adorable pink Kirby blobs at once. How do you get more Kirbies you ask? You eat  fruit, of course.

You'll control the Kirbies with the stylus. When you click on the touch screen a star will pop up and the Kirbies will move towards it and then latch on, letting you move the little guys around to wherever you want them to go in order to complete the levels. It sounds pretty neat, and any game where ten Kirbies are on screen doing random silly things sounds like a win to me. Just say Kirbies, it's fun!

Unfortunately Famitsu only mentioned the game's release in Japan for later this year, but I hope it will get a U.S. release announcement soon.

Dead or Alive Dimensions GDC 2011 Trailer »

3D fighting game Dead or Alive: Dimensions is coming out in North America on May 24. The game, exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, pits 25 playable characters against one another in battle -- that means every single Dead or Alive character in the history of the franchise is available in a single game. 

Tecmo KOEI promises "fast-paced combat, devastating counter attack combination and interactive environments which can be used to inflict heavy damage on opponents," as well as a special stage for Nintendo fans, which is inspired by Metroid: Other M, "where Ridley will wreak havoc on all fighters present."

Samus will not be a playable character in the game, and I can't decide if that's a good or a bad thing.

Spot quiz: Will you buy this game or Street Fighter for the 3DS?

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS To Be Released on June 19

Hey, listen! Nintendo has officially announced that Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS will be released on June 19. The game is a direct port from the epic Nintendo 64 original action adventure classic and will also include Master Quest, a more challenging version of the game.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will of course have 3D particle effects and will come with the option to use the gyro sensor on the 3DS to aim your slingshot. The graphics have been fully remastered and the game looks fresher than ever. It will also feature a touch screen inventory system, much better than having to go through the start menus that we're so used to from the N64 version.

Update: Nintendo has confirmed Global Link will be released this week on April 13th. "For the first time ever, a Pokémon™ video game incorporates dynamic, customizable, Web-only content and online options that make it even easier to communicate with fellow Pokémon Trainers anytime, anywhere. " 

Pokemon Black and White Global Link apparently has a release date. It looks like the online service will launch on April 13. It was originally set to be released in March but was delayed due to the earthquakes in Japan. A story confirming the launch appeared on Pokemon.com but was deleted later. As a PokeBeliever I think it's still safe to say we'll be able to connect to Global Link next Wednesday but we'll post more details as they become available.

Harvest Moon Coming to Nintendo 3DS -- Move Over Farmville

Move over Farmville, the original farm simulator Harvest Moon is coming to Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS this summer with a brand new game called Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns. The first details surrounding Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns are slim, but what we do know is that a huge dispute over food between the once friendly towns of Konohana and Bluebell Villages has turned them in to rivals.

New players will be able to choose which village they want to live in. Konohana Village is described as "Eastern styled with abundant fields of crops," whereas Bluebell Village is, "animal-loving and European styled," according to Natsume. Regardless of which town you choose, players will be able to farm crops, build a home, and compete in festivals that will hopefully bring the towns together again.

I've always loved Harvest Moon games so I'm very happy that a new one is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. What about you? Are you ready for the next Harvest Moon game?

The Nintendo 3DS has been out for a while now and we've given it somewhat of a lukewarm reception. Sure Nintendogs + Cats is adorable and Super Street Fighter IV 3D is entertaining, but does the handheld console really live up to all the hype and its year long promises? If you're still on the fence about plunking down $250, check out this video where we tell you everything you need to know about the Nintendo 3DS.

So there you have it. What are your thoughts on the new Nintendo 3DS so far?

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game

Avast ye, landlubber. Hear now a salty tale of golden doubloons, Davey Jones' locker and multi-colored plastic bricks! Arr! Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean preview, ahoy! Here there be an early look at this video game, from our favorite Pirate-ess, Nikole Zivalich:

"The core gameplay mechanics from any LEGO game are still there. Gamers will be rewarded for exploring, there are plenty of items to collect, and the drop-in drop-out local co-op returns as well. What makes this game stand out is the Pirate cannon the developers were allowed to work with. There was a lot of effort into making it feel "piratey” with audio and ambiance."

Nintendo 3DS

Updated: 12:42 PM EST: It is always best to be skeptical of British tabloids, especially when they're reporting on video games. In spite of The Sun's claims of "record return levels," British retailers say they've received very few requests for returns of the Nintendo 3DS handheld console. GAME told MCV that is has received "fewer than five" returns, while mega-retailer HMV reports no returned 3DS systems. HMV issued a statement saying:

"Contrary to a report in today's media - which has since been corrected - we would like to make clear that we are not aware of any manufacturing fault with the 3DS console - which we have seen huge demand for, and that we have not issued any refunds for it and nor are we doing."

Orignal Story:

British tabloid The Sun is reporting "furious users" and "record return levels" of the Nintendo 3DS in the U.K.

Since the release of the 3D handheld, some gamers have reported headaches when playing with the device, and apparently some British folks are not only having headaches, but are also having trouble getting full refunds of the purchase price of the device from some retailers.

Overall, The Sun's report seems misleading. The article mentions "record return levels" but doesn't offer any evidence of these records, and in fact goes on to quote Nintendo as saying returns are "in single figures per retailer." Also, The Sun reports that "thousands" of gamers have headaches and dizziness, presumably from the device, without offering any actual backup of that statement. Plus, British tabloids are notorious for overly sensationalizing stories.
