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

Capcom has clarified its position further in a brief FAQ style post on its forums surrounding the Resident Evil: Mercenaries controversy that's come about because the game doesn't allow users to overwrite their save data. Essentially, what's going on is that you can unlock content a single time for each cartridge, and after that, it's always unlocked. Many gamers immediately assumed that this was to make the game more difficult to sell once it's finished. After all, who wants to buy a cartridge with all the content unlocked? Or rent one?

In Capcom's post they denied that this is the case, saying they had no intention of "lessening the experience of the game."

Microsoft Expects More Regular Xbox 360 Updates Going Forward

Be prepared for the pre-E3 rumor mill to crank into overdrive between now and the show on June 7-9.  Today's rumor: Microsoft plans to unviel full stereo 3D for the Xbox 360 at the show.

“They’d be mad not to do it, is all I can say,” an unnamed source source told VG247. "The machine is not only very capable, it’s more capable than the PlayStation 3 of doing stereo, assuming you don’t have one of the old crappy ones with the composite leads… assuming you have a HDMI Xbox.”

Mario Kart 3DS Preview

It just wouldn't be a piece of Nintendo hardware without the launch of a Mario Kart game, and the 3DS is no exception: According to Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto speaking at a French press event, Mario Kart 3DS will be coming out in 2011. Not only that, Miyamoto also dropped a few details on the next Nintendo console, codenamed Project Cafe (or Wii 2.) According to Miyamoto, Nintendo has at least considered the idea of letting gamers use the 3DS as a controller for its next console.

We have very few concrete details on what we can expect from the game, but, if I know Nintendo, it will feature all the iconic characters you love from previous Mario Kart game and many of the same tracks from previous Mario Kart games. This is not a dig on Nintendo at all: Mario Kart is one of the most fun franchises of all time; it doesn't need to be improved at all.

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?


Gamescom 2010: Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One First Look Preview

Ratchet and Clank games have always been fun, but a game can't be super fun until you share it with your pals!

See what we learned in our hands-on with the game, some of the preview is below:

"Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One isn't just about having four players that can each do their own thing. It's about co-op, co-op in the sense that everyone on your team has strengths, weaknesses, and a role to play when solving puzzles."

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.

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."

How To Break The Nintendo 3DS's 16 Character Limit On Streetpass Greetings

Along with playing 3D games, the Nintendo 3DS allows you to broadcast a status update to anyone you Streetpass or add as a friend.  Pretty cool, right? The downside: The most you can post is 16 characters -- a weird decision on Nintendo's part, to be sure. Attack of the Show producer Scott Moschella has fixed the problem, however, with a cool web-based workaround.

Here's how it works: You use your computer or smart phone to navigate to 3DStxt.com, fill in the field with your important, long text message, and the site will spit out a URL of exactly 16 characters. Type that URL into your 3DS, and save it as your 3DS "greeting." Then, anyone who Streetpasses you or is on your friend's list will see your URL. If they enter that into a computer or smart phone, they can read your longer message and respond in a comment.

Hopefully, Nintendo will lift the 16 character limit soon, and even if they don't, when the internet browser is added, Moschella's service will be a lot more useful.

The free-to-use service is bare-bones at present, but Moschella assures me he's adding new features like custom URLs and more in the coming days. So check it out and let us know how it works for you.
