Nice video about Nintendo Cencorship

Nintendo’s always been about the family, and of course this means that the censorship rules have to be followed! Want to know more about them? Just take a look:

E3 – What it was all about this year – Social Gaming

Hello everyone and welcome to this lovely little post about E3 and what we saw and what it meant and so on and so on. First of I just want to say that it was a slow E3 this year, everything was leaked or talked about beforehand and the information on the things we wanted to know more about was short. A few examples of this being…

WiiU – console or controller? Well it’s a console, but they didn’t really show it. If you looked in the back of the videos though you always saw a small white box and that’s the console! So the main focus was on the controller and well I’m not really sure what to think about it yet. But I’m willing to wait and see where this takes gaming. Another thing that was really exciting was the new depth of collaboration between EA and Nintendo, awesome! Below… yea that is what the new WiiU looks like.


Exciting Nintendo, exciting.

PSP Vita – even if I loved the look and style of it. I will not lie, it’s just a new PSP with new features. But to be honest, I rather buy this right now then the WiiU. Hell I would rather even buy a 3DS over the WiiU. Well, hell there will be some awesome titles for this little machine so I’m looking forward to it!

SOCIAL GAMING

But you know what, the thing that got me more excited than anything else this year, was not the fact that they will release a lot of new games, new game systems and updates. What I loved about this year is the fact that they are working hard when it comes to social gaming. PSP Vita for example, where you could see when friends were online, talk with them while playing, see where they were, it became a social gaming tool. I’m a bit behind on the subject though, never had a PSP or the new 3DS, these consoles may have implanted several of these things as well, but the way the portrayed it for the PSP Vita was awesome.
WiiU was the next thing that really tried to tell us: Play together in a new exciting way. Nintendo has always been great for families and casual players. They’ve aimed their marketing towards everyone (except the hardcore gamers) and I must say they’ve succeeded in doing many awesome things for social gaming. The Wii being a huge part of that, it is fun to play together and it’s an experience for everyone that joins in. The controller, Wii remote, even if somewhat ridiculous to a gamer, is a great way to show of gaming to new people.

“Look all you have to do is this, and this and like that.” – You say this while showing simple movements and everyone can understand it. Moving your arm around doesn’t need more explaining then actually showing it. Saying things like: “You need to make a dash forward and do a high jump,” will not make the casual player very excited. What do I press to Dash? What it is a high jump exactly?

Many games shown on E3 were either mentioned to have multiplayer or some type of share feature that would let you and people all over the world connect to each other. I love to see this, and I’m still waiting for that single player game that isn’t single player. Everything changes in the game depending on the actions of other players in the world, you can still play the story created for you, but all players can have a piece of the action. Not a huuuuge fan of MMO’s yet, but I’m watching and waiting for that MMO that takes the genre one step beyond what it is right now. If social gaming can have a break through, I believe it will be a mix of the MMO game feel, and tools that go beyond the game and system it’s connected to.

Thank you E3 for showing a small step in a direction that gaming should take. Never forget the player that likes to play alone, but always give him the option to reach out to other players.

Nya Pokémon – 5th generation!

Hurdihur var ordet! Ännu fler små söta varelser har blivit avslöjade från kommande Pokémon Black & White. Här under får ni de scans som folk går på när de pratar om de små varelserna. ^^

Information om dessa tagna från Pokebeach.com:

  • The white Pokemon is named Chiramii (チラーミィ). It is the Chinchilla Pokemon, a Normal-type. Its abilities are Cute Charm and Technician and it knows a new movie called “Sweep Slap,” which hits the opponent multiple times. It is 0.4m tall and 5.8kg in weight.
  • The pink Pokemon is named Mun’na (ムンナ). It is the Dream Eater Pokemon, a Psychic-type, and has Forewarn and Synchronize as its abilities. A new attack it knows is “Telekinesis,” which makes the opponent float in the air. It is 0.6m tall and 23.3kg in weight.
  • The mechanical Pokemon below is Gear (ギアル), appropriately titled the Gear Pokemon. It is a Steel-type and its ability is either “Plus” or “Minus.” It has a new attack called “Gear Saucer,” which you can see it using below – it attacks the opponent multiple times with both of its gears. It is 0.3m tall and weighs 21.0kg.
  • Mamepato (マメパト) is the Baby Pidgeon Pokemon and is a Normal / Flying type. Its abilities are either “Pidgeon Breast” or “Super Luck.” In a screenshot below, Mijumaru tries to lower its Defense, but it doesn’t work because one of Mamepato’s abilities prevents it. It is 0.3m tall and weighs 2.1kg.
  • Hihidaruma (ヒヒダルマ) is the Flaming Pokemon, a Fire-type. Its ability is “Encourage.” It is 1.3m tall and weighs 92.9kg.
  • Shimama (シママ) is the Charged Pokemon, an Electric-type, and has Lightningrod or Motor Drive as its abilities. It has a new attack called “Wild Volt,” which does a lot of damage but also hurts the user. It is 0.8m tall and 29.8kg.
  • Meguroko (メグロコ) is the Desert Crocodile Pokemon, a Ground / Dark type. Its abilities are Intimidate and “Earthquake Spiral,” the latter of which raises its Attack stat when it Knocks Out a Pokemon. It is 0.7m tall and weighs 15.2kg.
  • The professor of Isshu is female and named Professor Araragi, as you can see below. She presents a Chiramii to the player in the “World of Pokemon” intro at the start of the game. The rumors we posted yesterday may also be true too, since Professor Araragi’s name was among them (some of the rumors have actually been circulating since April, including her name).
  • There is some sort of new in-game connection device called the C Gear. It has “various connection capabilities,” though we do not know what that means at this time. To the left of its screenshot below, the magazine says, “What’s this screen!?… It looks like a new wireless feature was added!”
  • There is a new wireless feature called Random Match, which you can access from the Global Terminal inside Pokemon Centers. It will allow players to randomly battle other players around the country over Wi-Fi. It then says “You can upload your Black and White save file to the Internet,” though for what purposes we do not know at this time.
  • As predicted, Reshiram is Dragon / Fire, standing 3.2m high and weighing 330kg, while Zekrom is Dragon / Electric, standing 2.9m tall and weighing 345kg. It looks like Shokotan really did spill the beans early.
  • Reshiram is the White Yang Pokemon and has “Turbo Blaze” as its ability while Zekrom is the Black Yin Pokemon and has “Terra Voltage” for its ability.
  • To obtain Zorua in the games, you have to transfer the Celebi from the movie download. You can obtain Zorua at Level 10.
  • On the Celebi and Zorua page, one of the screenshots shows your Celebi next to you and Zorua next to another Trainer. This probably confirms that you can have your Pokemon walk behind you again, like in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
