Nintendo 3DS

There is a perfect storm of games this week as Portal 2, Mortal Kombat, SOCOM 4 and Conduit 2 all hit store shelves. We talked about SOCOM 4 on last week's episode of Feedback, so this time we're wormholing deep into Portal 2 and finding out if Mortal Kombat is worth the fatality. Or even the babality.

Adam is back in the captain's chair this time around, along with the always delightful Morgan Webb who valiantly reviewed Portal 2 for us, Jake Gaskill freshly returned from Utah where he attended Bethesda's BFG event, and even Donell "Diablo" Tucker in his inaugural apprearance as a part of the Feedback team. Donell has been up to his eyeballs in Mortal Kombat, so pay attention to what he has to say.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is getting the 3D treatment this June when it will be re-released for Nintendo's handheld, the 3DS. The game will be more than a straight port and will feature Master Quest, a harder version of OoT with reworked dungeons originally released for the Gamecube. Now we're finding out that LoZ: OoT 3DS will feature even more bonus content including Boss Rush.

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.

Beyond Good and Evil Creator Leaves Ubisoft, Sequel In Jeopardy?

Yesterday we found out that Starfox 64 3D is coming out in Japan on July 14, and that's cool. But Starfox 64 3D really is a just a remake of a remake, albeit an awesome one. And The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is obviously just a remake of the original on the N64. We continuously buy into remakes all the time though, more recently with Beyond Good & Evil HD. Are there any games out there from long ago that you'd love to see an HD remake of? My favorite game ever is Final Fantasy 9, so that would be my choice. What about yours?

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?

Feedback time! This week Adam is out, finishing the exhaustive work on his epic three-part rock opera based on the video game industry, so we enlisted Morgan Webb and Blair Herter to fill in. Look for Morgan's return next week as she reviews a certain highly anticipated, wormhole-based game.

All of us were able to play SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs, and we're going to tell you what we thought about it. We also round up the bigger news from Capcom's Captivate event, where they revealed a lot of new games, and gave tons of details about upcoming titles. Plus tidbits, jokes, obscure references, and more. Watch and be amazed!

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.

Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D To Ship With RE: Revelations Demo

The Resident Evil franchise is just too awesome to be contained by two dimensions; it clearly needs a third. Luckily, we're getting Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

for the Nintendo 3DS. Here's a taste of the game via Adam Rosenberg's hands-on preview:

"We got to take an up-close look at the game and even spend a little time playing it at Capcom's annual Captivate preview event last week. If you are familiar with past iterations of the series' Mercenaries modes, then the small screen version will be immediately familiar. If you're not, here's some good news: Masachika Kawata, the game's producer, explained it for us in an exclusive interview, through a translator.

'Resident Evil is a series that's all about horror, survival horror. But The Mercenaries is a survival action game. The action is at the forefront and that's really what makes the game fun and unique within the series,' he said."

Check out our full Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D preview, and while you're at it, check out our RE: Mercenaries screenshot gallery as well.

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.
