Nintendo has revealed its Nintendo 3DS plans in Japan at the Nintendo Conference 2010. The Nintendo 3DS will be released on February 26, 2011 in Japan, and priced at 25,000 yen. The system will be available in Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black. No word on a US or EU release or price yet.
The 3DS is supporting wifi and is constantly downloading content from hotspots like mcdonalds.
3DS will also have a gameboy and gameboy advance like emulator which you can download games to play.
Some of your old favorites have been remade into 3d, no word on pokemon yellow or zelda but that would be pretty sick to see.
Each package comes with a 2gb SD card to make photos easier to transfer for the new Mii system that will be in place.
More on this as it gets closer to the release.

Quick dead rising 2 review

So i got dead rising 2 on the ps3 yesterday when it came out here and got to play it at last!
I wont get into the story now but i will say that chuck is serious, very serious. Infact if i didnt make him wear a onezie pyjamas while beating zombies with bracelets, he would be unplayable!
Early in the game you get to see how easy it is to kill the zombies and thats a good thing because...there are a lot of zombies... And i mean thousands of them. If you go to the streets and to the square and just look out at them, there is easily over 2000 of them there...
Combo weapons! Start off with the nail bat, then a nail bomb, then it starts getting crazy. So many combos!
Quick review score: 8/10

Im on a train, im on a train! Everybody ignore me! No hassel with no pain!

Yep im on a train heading back home from college to see my family and girlfriend.
So there are these 2 people right now, talking very loudly about busking. It started with one shouting at the other while he was holding a php book. "is that your bible?" what? Seriously what does he need a php book for? Anyway. They are now lightly arguing about how one thinks the other doesnt have a dublin accent. Im nearly afraid that they are going to fight. The busker is saying he was busking before it was cool, very hipsterish. I had to turn off my ipod to listen to this shite. Now im afraid he is going to cry. Seriously this is happening right now beside me. I bet the guy the beside is texting about this and he is looking at me as i write this. Fuck off and wait till i publish it! Anyway. Does anyone know if there was an arnotts on grafton. Scum owes busker €100 even they didnt make a bet at all. Now scum wants the busker to busk up and down the train. My hole he will! Also the smell is unreal! More on this once im home.

Game Rant!

So Im a pretty big gamer, Ive been gaming most my life and I was rarely walking distance from a console of some sort. The gameboy colour was in my pocket almost all the time, pokemon, legend of zelda and even a megaman or two were stuffed into  my pocket. The playstation 1, 2 and 3 are sitting in my house, even my gamecube, wii, gameboy advance SP, DS and DSi are still down in my room and I play most of them today. Comparing them against each other is alot of fun. Tekken 2 on the PS1, Tekken 3 on the PS2 and Tekken 5 on PS3, oh how graphics have developed! But in fairness, gameplay hasn't changed all that much, infact with those games and the pokemon games, not much has changed. Gameplay has always been the same, it looks like we have been playing the same game over and over just with better graphics. Sure there have been a few tweaks but not much, some extra kicks and punches and different game types but thats it. It's most games, almost every game that had a prequil is very very very very similar to the first game and even to other games off the same genre. Its pretty hard to pick out the differences but very easy to pick out the common stuff.

So I will end it here and continue this another day.

So can you guys think of a unique game? One different from every other game?

Rant 4.

So I took a small break from the blog, have to get ready for college next week. Now while I was packing, it got me thinking, I'm going to be living with 3 other guys in a rather small apartment, we will get to know each other pretty well very quickly and will I forget my current friends that I really like? Well no, I won't, unless I get smashed by a truck and lose my memory. I will surely keep in contact with them and I will be home every so often to see my girlfriend so I will see most of them. But that brings me onto what I want to talk about.
Have you ever met anyone on holidays, at camp, at a concert or somewhere else? And over a few days you become pretty good friends and you say you will write to them when you get home, by write I do mean all the ways of communication :P I know that whenever I went off and met some people on holiday that I never sent them a text, email or even a second thought when I got back to my friends.
Has this ever happened to you?
Also, taking requests on what to rant about next, something serious, funny, dramatic, let me know.

Rant 3.

So today's rant is on...well whatever comes to me first.

So we should get going with this even though I have nothing yet, I've actually been sitting here looking at the first line trying to figure out what to talk about and then it hit me! While writing that last sentence I knew what I lost, imagination. I'm 19 years old and pretty healthy, I go out the odd weekend with my firends, but what else do I do that could cause the loss of my imagination? Well...this. Not the blog, but the computer and games. I have 3 computers, 2 are running either Fedora 13 or backtrack 4 and the other is a windows PC. I've spent alot of time since I was 15 on a computer and most of my life playing games on consoles. I've spent more hours in doors than I have outside in the sun. And I've noticed that most of my friends have been doing the same, just not as heavy on the computer side of things other than facebook.
When we were younger, we could play anything outside, I could be a motherfucking ninja turtle if I wanted to be or I could be Ryu from Street Fighter and kick some ass. Like back in primary school we pretend to have pokemon battles, before the cards came out. They were some fun times that if I tried to relive I would be thrown into a huggy coat and jumping around a room of sponges...(insane)
As I got older, it stopped being cool to play those games, jumping around throwing punches and kicks at a tree or wall. Secondary school killed everything the imagination was for me. No more playing Tekken in the basketball yard, no more racing like Sonic and Shadow, anything like that.

You all miss it as much as I do and don't lie by saying you don't.
