The latest update to the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL has brought some great new features to the StreetPass Mii Plaza including 4 new mini-games, new puzzles, a ticket exchange booth and a complete new design.
The new games to the Plaza are:
- StreetPass Squad, a game very similar to StreetPass Quest however it is in space! You are part of a space police group and you have a mission to save the galaxy from a group of space skeletons!
- StreetPass Garden, a game where you move into a little house in a town called Leafington (sounds like Animal Crossing so far). However, your job is to become a master gardener.
- StreetPass Battle, a strategy game, very similar to Risk, where you must gather your StreetPass army to conquer the world! One cool feature to this is that if you pass someone who has 100 units in their army, you gain 100 units too!
- StreetPass Mansion, a game which sends you on an investigation as a detective in a mystery haunted house! Its a bit like Luigi’s Mansion meets Cluedo with the additions of StreetPass Quest battles!
Each of these games cost £4.49 in the UK or you can get a combo pack which is £13.49. The update should be available to all Nintendo 3DS users now!
Along with these new games in the update, you also get a fresh new look to the Plaza itself. Here is a picture of what the new play area looks like:
Also, if you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf and would like to add me to your friends, my Nintendo 3DS friend code is 2320-6150-1932. Let me know what your code is too so I can add you!
Bioshock Infinite is beautiful. I didn’t know what to expect when I pre-ordered this game. I waited for it, like many, for a long time anticipating what this new style of Bioshock would be like. Well I’ve not completed the game yet as I have been rather busy with work and other bits and bobs, however what I have played of it so far is just far beyond what I expected. Irrational Games definitely put a lot of effort into making this game so awesome. The level design is just … oh my god I love this game.
Bioshock Infinite is different to the previous two games. A lot different. The basic gameplay from the previous games is still there. Plasmids replaced Vigors, replacing Eve is Salts and all the FPS gun stuff is still there like before but they have brought something new to the franchise.
Unlike most games I play, I didn’t rush into just getting on with the campaign/story. I took a moment to wander around the areas. There is so much detail in this game it is unbelievable. I understand why it was a hefty download.
So the game itself. You play as a character called Booker Dewitt… I wonder if the last name pays homage to “Would you kindly?” i.e. “Do it”. Maybe this is just me thinking too into this game. You character has more of a voice in this game and this comes across a lot when you talk with Elisabeth, the other protagonist of this game. I will try not to spoil much of this game in this little review of mine.
One thing that I normally don’t like about recent games is downloadable content. However, I think I can deal with the fact that Bioshock Infinite has room for DLC. I want to see what will come out of it. I’m hoping that it isn’t just in-game items. I’d like to see some side stories going on.
Bioshock is a game series that I haven’t got bored with by the third game *cough cough* Assassin’s Creed. I don’t think that I will ever lose love for Bioshock. It is one of my favourite games and Infinite has blown this to probably my second most favourite game series. My first is obviously Legend of Zelda. Third would probably be Borderlands.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the first two games, this is definitely one game you should pick up and play. I don’t want to give any of the story away because it takes from playing the game but trust me, you will love it!
You can still get it for PC at only £23.99 from Green Man Gaming here - Bioshock Infinite
Get it while it’s cheap! Or pay more…
I’ve not played any of the other games which are in the bundle apart from Shattered Horizon. When I played it, it was awesome! It just lacked the players. Well now it’s in the Indie Royale bundle and is a Steam game for all your lovers of the provider!
You can get to the bundle from here: http://www.indieroyale.com/ and when I posted this link, the price of the bundle was £2.98 so get it while it’s still cheap.
The games in the bundle include Shattered Horizon, Analogue: A Hate Story, Da New Guys, Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, Waves and Mini Flake.
Check it out now! The price is worth it just for Shattered Horizon and if you get it, add me on Steam and I will be happy to game with you! You can get my steam details by clicking here.
Although not having Borderlands on Steam for very long, I have had it as a non-steam PC game before and completed it. It was one of those games that I just love. It has always been one of my favourite games, along with The Legend of Zelda, Fallout, Bioshock. Assassins Creed and most recently, Bulletstorm and Dungeon Defenders. Unfortunately because of work and university, I don’t really play as much as I used to when I was at school, but when I have some full free time where I’ve not got anything to do at all, you will probably find me on one of these games. I’m not a competitive player, and prefer to play single player games. Most games companies are taking the fun away from a game by making the multiplayer the main focus.
I don’t mind a multiplayer game where you are playing co-operatively, but games are meant to be enjoyed, not just shooting each other up to get to 10th prestige… *cough* Call of Duty *cough* which has a crap single player. The only reason most people play the Call of Duty single player is for the achievements.
That’s why I like online games where you join in on the game and play along side friends to complete missions which could also be done in single player, like Halo.
This is starting to get away from the topic of discussion though, Borderlands 2. I’ve started playing Borderlands again to get me ready for it! Borderlands 2 just sits there mocking me with it’s Pre-Order section on my steam game list. It’s a shame that the old character types aren’t the same in this game, but I suppose it wouldn’t be as fun if they were. I’m thinking that maybe I will be a Commando or The Assassin. I’ve not looked at any trailers or much information about the game yet because I’d rather get my expectations of it’s awesomeness up. From what people have said to me though from information they’ve found out, it’s going to be much better than the original. It just makes me want to play it more!
Get me on Steam
If anyone is going to be getting the game too and will be wanting to play online, (if you haven’t already got me added on steam) add me: jamzc92
Let me know if you’re going to add me in the comments section below so I know who you are! I’m also up for playing other games too, including Dungeon Defenders! That game has grown on me.
As many people will know if they purchased the recent Humble Bundle, LIMBO was one of the games included in the bundle! I’ve wanted to play LIMBO for a long time now and never got round to purchasing it, so I didn’t mind snapping it up with this amazing bundle. I know that I am probably quite late for reviewing LIMBO or even the Humble Bundle as it has finished now, but I am going to do it anyway!
I’ve not finished the game yet, but I thought I would review it so far. I’ve got about an hour into it and I’ve got to say that I am absolutely enjoying it. It’s exactly how I expected it to be.
So for a bit of background on LIMBO, it’s basically a puzzle solving platformer game which has some awesome artwork! The way the game plays reminds me of a flash game that I also used to enjoy playing called “Little Wheel” which I think people should have a play so check that out!
In the game you play as this boy who “explores” Limbo who will die quite often but that’s the fun of the game unless you’re like me who sees things before I have to die and solves the puzzle. Although some of the puzzles that you will face in the game are very challenging (I won’t give anything away so you can play it for yourself!) you will find that you will start getting a hang of the way the game is unfolding and it will become easier to play (well for me so far this has been the case).
I don’t know personally how long the game is and I didn’t want to rush it all in one day so I’ve only played a small amount of the game so that I can keep coming back to it because I am really enjoying it!
The game has amazing visuals and the way the game is itself will have you wanting to play more! I hope that a LIMBO 2 is in the works so that by the time I get round to finishing the first one I will have something to look forward to. Although I can see myself playing through this game multiple times and still enjoying it!
Unfortunately the Humble Bundle has finished until next time, so you will have to get LIMBO in the Steam store or somewhere else, but I would recommend buying it. I wish I had bought it earlier…
I’ve always been a huge fan of Miyamoto. Who couldn’t be?! He brought the best in gaming to Nintendo. He made quite a fantastic entrance with virtual Pikmin ready to preview the new Pikmin 3 for Wii U which looked amazing.
The conference as a whole seemed to focus more on the gaming of the new console. The one thing that seemed to be getting a lot of attention on Twitter was Nintendo Land which seems to be a compilation of awesome games into some Mii style mini game situation. It looks like one person plays with the “GamePad” and everyone else plays with regular Wiimotes.
Apart from that it just seems to be a big push for third party games such as Mass Effect 3 and Batman Arkham City, which look like they will be launch titles (which makes a change from most consoles launch titles, especially from Nintendo).
I’m really looking forward to seeing how well the Wii U will do. For some reason I feel like the next generation of games consoles is too soon. I know that it’s been 6 years since the original Wii release and longer for the other consoles, but these “next gen” consoles need to last that long too and I can see the novelty of the Wii U running out after a few years. Plus with the release of the new Xbox and Playstation consoles which will more than likely have amazing specs, the Wii U will just be sat behind while the more power hungry games will be released on the other two consoles even with the third party access to Wii U. We can only wait and see…
