Destructoid Review: Dream Trigger 3D

July 6th, 2011 Comments off

A portion of the Destructoid review:

This is a game that is hard to recommend to many players, but those with a taste for the odd and an ability to forgive rather bizarre design flaws will find a good little game hidden under a film of potential inaccessibility. Enjoyment of the game requires no small amount of work from players, who will need to bash their heads repeatedly against it before breaking through. For many of you, I can’t say you’ll find anything of worth on the other side. For some of you, however, the effort will be fairly rewarded.

Reggie Fils-Aime E3 2011 Interview

July 5th, 2011 Comments off

Forbes interviewed Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime at E3 2011

A portion of the interview:

David Ewalt: How do you explain the Wii U to people who haven’t had a chance to play with it?

Reggie Fils-Aime: What we are doing with Wii U is creating an ability for games to leverage two different screens; the big screen in your room, and the smaller handheld screen in front of you. By doing so it opens up all of these different experiences. The experience I use to describe it to someone is to imagine a first person shooter, where instead of constantly having to look at the screen, now I’ve got things happening all around me.
It’s a great experience. I don’t think it’s going to be a hard sell. I think that communicating to consumers through the magic of the second window, you can have a totally unique experience, with another player still in the room… I don’t think it’s a difficult sell.
