The Nintendo 3DS is coming soon, and more and more gameplay videos are trickling out. Tinycartridge posted a crap-ton of some of the more recently released ones. Go check ’em out. When you come back, I’ve posted my thoughts on each trailer.
Thoughts on Mercenaries: I’m still not sure if I like how they’re separating that from the more story-driven game, but it DOES look fun. Oddly, it seems there’s not a lot of enemies running around. Not sure if more appear later, or if there’s a hindered due to the processing power (It could also have the same amount from the console versions and I’m just remembering wrong). And why is Y the “do” button? Also: Don’t forget to work the crotch!
Thoughts on Revelations: Looks a lot slower paced then the more recent console games. As long as it controls more like those then the older games, I don’t mind.
Thoughts on SSIV3D: I like the features they added…but I don’t even play the copy of Super Street Fighter IV I already own. I don’t think I could justify another purchase.
Thoughts on Star Fox: I loved the original version of this game, and Star Fox Assault worked VERY well on the DS. I’ll definitely be getting it.
Thoughts on Mario Kart: Beautiful. Admittedly, it’s predecessor on the original DS was kind of ugly. And Mario Kart is never not fun.
Thoughts on Paper Mario: While it’s no handheld port of Super Mario RPG, I did really enjoy this game originally. I’ll probably pick it up as well.
I didn’t sit through the Mii creator or the AR game section, but from what I’ve seen, they look pretty neat.
All in all, the games look fucking GORGEOUS. I keep telling people this isn’t Nintendo’s next handheld. This is their next CONSOLE.
