Preview: Dead Or Alive Dimensions

As for Street Fighter I never really played Dead Or Alive, but this game was a good surprise :)

I told you before that I experienced a 3DS crash while playing it, and I heard I was not the only one, but let's focus on the game now !

The game as rhythm and is beautiful, in 2D like in 3D which has a very good realization, and if you like DOA girls you may be interested to know it :p

So, DOA D is more beautiful than SF4, but I felt it also more difficult: I appreciate when a game provides a challenge ! The fight animations are really better, the music also, I really enjoyed that game.

I just played like 10 minutes but it was enough to built a stock of combos in my mind and take pleasure trying to realize it in the game with the good timing.

The bad point now: in the touch screen you can just touch a combo in the list and the character will automatically do it... hum I hope this can be disabled or is just for the demo otherwise the game has much less interest.
As a conclusion: I really recommend you to try DOA !

Preview: Street Fighter 4 3D Edition

This is the D-day game I most waited, using the street pass and online game. But I was visually disappointed...

You can choose the camera angle to be classic or "dynamic", that means it would be a little oriented to be behind your character.
I played with the classic view.

The more you fight and the more you load your special attacks, you can launch it by touching it on the touch screen...

I never played SF4 and I didn't really enjoyed the fights, of course because I don't know the game but that's the same for Dead Or Alive, which I really enjoyed (see next review) ! So if you hare a novice, you'll have to practice before to know how to play and enjoy (hopefully the demo was easy :) ) if you know SF, you will find what you expected in the gameplay.
But keep in mind that the gameplay is affected by the stick: many players are used to play with the cross for that kind of game, and it's position on the 3DS is not fully smooth to use.
But the weak point of the game is the visual aspect, the 3D is not deep, unlike many other games, and I didn't like the visual result, I mean it's OK but I expected something cooler to see. but once again, if you are a SF4 fan, don't hesitate !

Review: Kid Icarus UpRising

If you play Nintendo games you must know Pit in the Super Smash Bros. Braw game on Wii, or the older games. One of the big Nintendo games on 3DS first months will be Kid Icarus UpRising, you probably saw the Trailer, but how does it feels to play it ?

As you can see on the picture, the first thing I noticed is the poor gameplay: you just run/flight with the stick, dodge with L, shoot with A and look around with the touch screen. But let's try !

In this demo, there were 3 different sequences available, I played the "shoot" one. In this demo Pit was first flying and shooting enemies, then he fighted on the ground until a giant fire dog Boss fight.

During the flight sequence, there were some elements visually disappointing like the enemies projectiles: there were in 2D in the global 3D environment (like Mr. Game&Watch in Smash Bros). Also, even Kid didn't seem distinctly to me.

The air fight was OK, the controls were good but the "challenge" was too easy to be really enjoying, then on the ground, is was more complicated: the controls were difficult, this stick is used to move and the touch screen to shoot around: so you easily move the 3DS so you can't stay face up it, you loose the clear 3D image. Moving Kid was difficult and slow (but you can run) in the first place, if you are left handed, it must be even worst, but let's bet I'm just a noob at this game :)

So, as a conclusion, I hope the final Game will be significantly improved from this demo. Unlike Zelda, try before to buy !

Nintendo 3DS CRASH experienced !

Dead Or Alive Dimentions Stand
That's right ! I was playing Dead Or Alive Dimentions story mode, after 8 minutes playing and during a cinematic I was regulating the 3D level to test many configurations. That's when the device just hang ! The image remained static on the screen.
The hostess looked surprised and called the stand responsible. He looked at the 3DS and restarted it. another hostess seemed curious and came to see what was going on.
I don't have any vid/pics since all the staff were on me and taking pictures was forbidden on the stands.

See my Dead Or Alive preview here !
