E3 2010: Animal Crossing 3DS Preview

I know we Americans like to think we're better than our brothers and sisters in Europe, but today, The Old World Wins: The Nintendo 3DS is out over the sea, meaning that us yanks are just sitting around on our thumbs until Sunday, playing with our antique, two-dimensional handhelds. But it's not all tea and crumpets in England. There are reports coming in that Amazon has messed up people's 3DS pre-orders, and many gamers have taken to the internet to register their displeasure. Here's a thread of English belly-achers.

Sample post:

"I paid for expedited, ordered on the 19th Jan and I'm still sitting on "Not Yet Dispatched". I cant imagine they are going to manage delivery for today, like they say. Extremely disappointed, last time I pre-order hardware with Amazon."

Dead Or Alive: Dimensions Box Art Altered -- ESRB Hates Thighs

Dead or Alive: Dimensions' box art has been altered for North American audiences. The ESRB felt that Kasumi's high kick showed off too much thigh. The thigh is commonly believed to be the most suggestive and offensive part of the body. Actually I just made that up. Tecmo Koei fixed the problem by making Kasumi's socks a little higher and her dress longer. Honestly, the change is so subtle, I wonder why the ESRB cared. Does the uncensored DoA: Dimensions box offend you?

Dead or Alive: Dimensions is a 3DS exclusive set to be released in NA on May 25.

Nintendo 3DS Adds OK Go Video

If you're lucky enough to be holding a Nintendo 3DS right now, days before the official release date, you'll note that an update went live today that added something cool: A 3D video from internet-favorite indie-rock band OK Go.

The video, "White Knuckles," features the band interacting with a bunch of trained dogs in an insanely choreographed dance routine. It's very impressive, especially with the added dimension provided by the 3DS.

You can watch the 2D movie under the cut, or just wait until Sunday, when you'll be able to watch OK Go in glorious 3D, once you download and install the update.

Super Street Fighter 4 3D: Will Street Fighter Fans Be Happy With The 3DS Edition?

Capcom's fighting series has made its way to the 3DS with Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition. The 3DS launch title is designed to help introduce the series to new gamers who might be playing a Street Fighter game for the first time. But will gamers who love the series already have trouble getting into the SSFIV 3D Edition?

"If you’ve played Super Street Fighter IV on the console, you know what the expect here: Arcade Mode, Versus, Trials, Bonus Stages, Training, and Online Play. Throw in the new over-the-shoulder perspective and some StreetPass functionality and you get a nicely sized package for a portable."
 

PilotWings

Since the days of the Super Nintendo, the Pilotwings series has always been used by Nintendo to show off the graphics-power of its consoles. Pilotwings Resort for the Nintendo 3DS is no exception... but is it worth the purchase? Jake "believes a man can fly" Gaskill played the game, and said:

"Considering that Pilotwings Resort  is essentially a Wii Sports-ish compilation that serves as more of a packaged tech demo than an actual game, it’s a shame Nintendo didn’t bundle it with the 3DS. Because for what’s here, $40 is a little steep, especially if you just spent $250 for the 3DS. The game and the tech driving it are solid enough, but you’ve basically seen all it has to offer after about an hour. This wouldn’t be such a problem had the game come with the 3DS, but since you paid for it, you’ll undoubtedly start to wonder what else you could have bought with that money."

Hudson 3DS Titles Are Not Canceled -- Bomberman 3DS Still Possible

Rumors are swirling that Hudson has canceled several of their upcoming 3DS titles, Omega Five, Bonk and Bomberman. The publisher has been having an eventful year, first they were sold to Konami, and then their American branch was shut down. Famitsu magazine has removed Hudson's lineup from their list of upcoming games leading many to speculate these absent titles have been canceled. However, a Konami spokesperson has contacted Wired, assuring them this wasn't the case.

3DS

The Nintendo 3DS comes out this Sunday, and that means gamers will be wanting to trade in their old, busted Nintendo DS for a spiffed-out new system. But where can you get the best trade in deal? Read on, and we'll give you an idea of how to trade your old DS in for a Nintendo 3DS.

GameStop has a tremendous deal: According to the company's website, the retailer is offering $50 worth of trade-in value for a DS Lite, $75 for a DSi, and a heaping $100 for a DSi XL. So if you hand in a DSi XL, you're basically getting a 3DS for only $149. Gamestop is also offering $300, online-only bundles which include a 3DS case and a game (either Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition or Samurai Warriors Chronicles).

More trade-in deals are under the "Read More" tag.

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Feedback is heading back into the studio, and we're going to be talking Homefront, Crysis 2, the Nintendo 3DS, and "Whatever you desire." Which is a thinly veiled reference to L.A. Noire, courtesy L.A. Confidential. Dang, I'm really looking forward to that game. But we won't be talking about it this week. No! Less detecting, and more FPSing!

There's a lot more to talk about on this episode, but it won't be complete without your input. What questions are burning up your brain like a high fever? We want to know so we can answer them. No question too big, no question too small. We'll take 'em all on.

Fans To Choose Cover Athlete For Madden 12

The cover athlete on the next Madden game, Madden NFL 12, will be chosen by fans. Beginning today and continuing through April 27, fans can participate in a bracket-style voting campaign on on ESPN's site. You'll choose among 32 candidates (one from every NFL team). Fans’ votes will determine which NFL players advance through the seeded bracket, culminating in the reveal of the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete on ESPN’s “SportsNation” on April 27.

“Whether it be from fans, media, agents, or even the players themselves, there’s never a shortage of opinions when it comes to the annual selection of the Madden NFL cover athlete,” said Anthony Stevenson, Senior Product Manager of EA Sports. “So this year we’re handing the keys over to the public."

PAX East was epic this year, and not just because the attendance  at 69,500 exceeded any previous PAX, but because we banged our way through tons of content, and topping the charts was the fact that Irrational Games' co-founder and creative director Ken Levine joined us on Feedback LIVE! to talk Bioshock Infinite, PAX, games, Dungeons & Dragons, and more. It is incredibly refreshing to know that a game developer of his caliber is a true geek at heart. One of us, if you will.

But that's not all! There's a couple of surprises in this video, and watch closely for a very special guest. It's nice to take the show on the road, and we're looking to book additional guests coming up in the future. Who do you want to see on an episode of Feedback? Let us know. But, before you do that, watch this episode and learn all about PAX and Ken Levine, hear more literary references from Adam Sessler, obscure games from Matt Keil, Pokemon love from Nikole Zivalich, and yours truly Kevin Kelly actually managed to wedge some zingers in there somehow.

It's FeedPAX! The next best thing to being there.

The Nintendo 3DS will be released on March 27, only a few days from now. Nintendo was nice enough to send us a console early so we can make sure to provide you with all the 3DS content you crave. They also sent us ten women with Nintendo 3DS consoles tethered to their waists. We hope Nintendo lets us keep them!

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

GDC is now behind us, but PAX East looms large this coming weekend. If you aren't going to be in Boston braving the cold and seeking out new games and geekery galore, then you'll probably be bundled up warm and snug playing Dragon Age 2 or trying to catch all of the Pokemons in Pokemon Black or Pokemon White. Either way, one thing that will help make your week complete is a full and heaping serving of Feedback

But as with every episode, we want your input! Ask us the questions you need to know about gaming, and we'll get you answers. Want to know about PAX East? Inquiring about Dragon Age 2? Wondering what games on the horizon are going to be worth checking out? Which ones you'll want to ditch? Why shouldn't sore thumbs from button-mashing be covered by insurance? Anything you want to know, ask away.

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo is making it clear they do not support  playing pirated or non-region approved games on the 3DS. Japanese retailers have been warned, Nintendo will disable any 3DS console that has illegal games detected on it. The console would be bricked via firmware update. The 3Ds launched last week in Japan and the American release will take place at the end of the month. I'm sure we can expect to see a similar warning from Nintendo once it hits shelves on March 27.
