3DS: Friend Codes on First Page, OMG THE THIRD DIMENSION

Recommended Posts

Pretty clear to me that they're talking about enhancing the DSiWare version with 3D and putting it on the eShop rather than make the 3D rendered 3DS retail game downloadable on the eShop.

Edit; The 'Folders' 3DS Firmware Update is now LIVE for North America!

The new Pilotwings album has got me back into the 3DS Pilotwings game. It's a lot better than I remember it. Maybe it has to do with my eyes being trained to the 3D effect.

My latest Colors 3D painting: Adventuremari Timacy - It's a mashup of Adventure Time and Katamari Damacy. Took about 3 days. :o And then the undo button stopped working. Luckily it was right near the end. Anyhow, I hope you like it.

I'm hoping that at E3 this year, they cover that whole digital download thing for 3DS games. Having to take a collection of carts is a bit of a minor hassle, but on-system games makes that easier.

It would depend, of course, how they price it. If I don't have to pay for the cost of the cart, the case, the manual and the transportation of the game itself, then I expect it to be lower than the physical copy.

But knowing how everyone works, I suspect that it will be the same price, or just barely under it.

Demo of Rayman Origins is up today, and after playing some of the demo again (my first time being the PS3 demo) I am reminded how much I HATE that game. It annoys me from beginning to end: the music is stupid, the high-pitched squeaky voices are annoying, the level design is terrible and the controls are some of the worst platforming controls I have ever played. I cannot beat that stupid race against the treasure chest level! :banghead:

And before anyone says it, I am not bad at platformers: just watch this recording of me playing DKCR.

I will give it that the animation and graphics are quite nice, but the gameplay and floaty, slippery controls are just so terrible that I cannot stand to play the game and I will never understand how Yahtzee thought it was better that Mario 3D Land.

Once I realized the game was more about just doing things as quickly as possible the game became much more fun. The jumping feels weird because it's meant to keep you from standing around in one spot too long -- it wants you to keep doing. The control perfectly facilitate time trials and the like. I played it on Wii and, once I got used to it, had no trouble...

... Eeeexcept for an overly-long treasure chest level in water land. It broke me, man. Made me weep with rage. But I did beat the game. Loved it.

I'm still stuck on that treasure chest stage, and it's because i die at the mast at the end.

HOW DO I SURVIVE THAT? ;A;

So after giving the demo a fair shot and after reading through a few reviews and impressions of other versions, the game has started to grow on me. I still think the floaty controls are causing a lot of pointless deaths on the bloody first level of the demo no less. There's also a lot of things you can do with Rayman that aren't particularly explained well, but I'll just chalk that one up to the whole "it's a demo" thing.

I guess what really keeps making me come back to it are the visuals and the music. Hot damn is this game pretty to look at, even on the 3DS screen(and I hope the visuals look better on retail release)! The audio is this weird mix of styles including ambient nature tones, creole bayou music, and I love that it changes dynamically depending on the situation in the current level. One thing that annoys me though is that the audio quality itself is pretty terrible, and is blown out. I'm hoping that this is just another "it's a demo" thing as well, as I think the OST is a treat after listening to it on teh youtubes.

Given that the 3DS version is going to release at $30, I might take the plunge if the reviews for it are favorable(IE. fix the aforementioned problems). If not, I'll grab the PC version most definitely.

Game's so damned pretty...

Edit - So I downloaded and played through the PC demo of the game, and man do I feel like a horse's ass for ever saying the game was crap. The platforming is WAY better, and if the 3DS version had me going nuts over how pretty it was, the PC version has caused me to misplace my jaw somewhere in my room. I'm just gonna grab that version over Steam. Seriously, this game can't be missed, and it's a bloody travesty that it hasn't broken at least 500k in sales.

Shit, maybe I should buy both versions just because of that.

There's a mast? I'm on the one where you dive to chase it and go through a dark area filled with spikes and requiring perfect, constant swimming. It's the 9th ruby tooth I need to collect.

... You know, this game plays a lot like Sonic in a way. The emphasis on speed and precision, I mean.
