If you’re a Nintendo 3DS owner who’s aching for some steamy mercenary on mercenary action — in 3D — then keep an eye on the 3DS’s eShop tomorrow, March 7. The Mercenaries began as a mode in Resident Evil 4 before becoming its own game on Nintendo’s handheld. It comes with eight playable characters from the world of Resident Evil (Albert Wesker, Barry Burton, Rebecca Chambers, Claire Redfield, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, and Krauser) and a slew of maps — over 30 — that can be played alone or in co-op for the manageable price of $19.99.

I did some serious slacking the past 2 years and didn’t post my Best Horror Game articles like I did from 2007-2009. But I’m going to make it all up to you guys now. It’s easy for me to post my favorite horror games of the year, but I’m more curious about what games YOU guys liked the best. So if you head past the break you can look at my hand clicked selections from last year. Choose your favorite from the list, and then we can crown the winner! The poll will go for a couple weeks, or until I decide it has fizzled out! Head past the break to see your choices and to vote!
Common of many of the handheld devices, they don’t get the sequels but the spinoffs. Same goes for Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate. Our major consoles are getting Lords Of Shadows 2, while the latter is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Mirror Of Fate takes place about 25 years after the original game as it follows Gabriel’s descendants.
Head past the break for the games details and some new screenshots straight from this years Comic-Con.
Just a few days back we broke wind of a new Gears Of War game to be announced at E3. Yes, broke wind. Well, Gears Of War: Judgement has been announced and it’s definitely not was I was expecting. I think most people looked at it as if it could be a prequel to the original series. Turns out, well, that’s pretty much the truth. However it doesn’t center around Marcus and Dom, but Baird and Cole. We can look forward to an epic back story coming to life and an all new multiplayer mode. Also, health grenades? Fuck yeah. Lots more past the break.
If you are like me, you love dual joysticks. It was pretty stupid foolish of Nintendo to release the 3DS with only 1 stick, but they have almost always been a 1 stick kind of company. Also, playing a game like Resident Evil Revelations on the 3DS can be quite the challenge. But now, there is the 3DS Circle Pad Pro you can get exclusively from Gamestop. The Pro only costs 20 dollars, so it’s not a major hit to your wallet, and can really help your gaming situation.
I know if I ever end up getting a 3DS, this will be purchased right along side it. I will also be mailing Nintendo a punch in the mouth for not already having dial sticks on it. READ MORE
Resident Evil: Revelations is out, and if you aren’t convinced you want it, you should download the demo. Play it. Love it. Buy it. Give it to me, and give me your 3DS. The one problem I had with the demo was moving around with 1 joystick got to be quite the hassle. Well my friends, the article above will solve that very problem for you. Below is some excellent gameplay that should get you in the mode for the game, and get your giblets all warm and gooey. Or something. It’s late.
A few weeks back a new horror title was revealed with striking similarities to Fatal Frame. Makes sense, since the game’s being developed by the same team behind the series, but this one comes with a fantastic twist: now the ghosts are in your house.Spirit Camera is an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) that uses the Nintendo 3DS camera to put the ghosts in the real world. This is an exciting evolution for the genre, but I’d like to ask that no developer ever makes a game that does this but replaces the ghosts with clowns. Seriously, don’t do that.
Spirit Camera follows a young girl names Maya, who has to break a curse that was given to her by a Woman in Black. To accomplish this, you’ll need to use a handy 16-page book called the Diary of Faces, which will almost definitely be as creepy as it sounds. Look for it to come out on April 13, or Friday the 13th (I see what you did there, Tecmo) Head past the break for some gameplay. READ MORE
Remember when you spent $250.00 on the Nintendo 3DS? Well, you probably should have waited. Nintendo announced today they plan on dropping the price from $250 down to $169.99 on August 12th. This is also around the same time a lot of long awaited strong 3DS titles will be released. So if you’ve been holding out, this will be the perfect time to start emptying your wallet.
Some games on the way are Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus: Uprising, Legend of Zelda Ocarina Of Time was released last month, Resident Evil: Revelations is on it’s way. I’m about ready to throw down for one of these babies myself. Check out some new and awesome current features past the break.
Nyko has made TONS of awesome gaming peripherals. But the items they are showing off at E3 this year might just be the absolute best. If you bought a Kinect, but your gaming space is small, you’re shit out of luck. The damn thing can’t find you. I have a decent sized gaming area and I still have to completely move the couch out of the way and it’s just barely enough. Check out the video below to see this amazing add on in action.
Amazing right? That’s not all people. Head past the break to read about all the awesome other goodies they are releasing. READ MORE
Come the end of this year, Mario is back on the Nintendo 3DS. The new Super Mario looks about as close as you can get to Super Mario 64 (My personal fave). The game is (obviously) a 3D platformer, however the real 3D is supposed to help the gamer make their way through the game. Basically helping the gamer make hard jumps from platform to platform by being able to better judge the depth. Anyone who has played through Mario 64 knows how insane hard a lot of the platform jumping was.
There’s going to be a few new enemies, new costumes for Mario, new moves, it’s looking pretty awesome. Check out what I mean by looking at the screens past the break. READ MORE
So in the era of Nintendo 64, Star Fox 64 was definitely one of my most played games, especially the multiplayer. Along side Bomberman and Goldeneye, the multiplayers were incredible. Well, Nintendo is bringing Star Fox to the Nintendo 3DS.
Well, the game is being remastered with updated graphics for the 3DS. It will have 4 player online multiplayer. It’s going to make use of both screens by displaying your game on the top, and dialogue and other characters on the bottom, which is super nerdy and perfect for this type of game. Looking down and seeing Peppy flipping his shit is going to be awesome. Screens past the break, and the game will be out September 11th on the Nintendo 3DS for 40 balloon doggies. READ MORE
I almost feel like if it wasn’t for the absolutely TERRIBLE and HILARIOUS voice acting for Barry Burton in the original Resident Evil, he wouldn’t be around today. Either way, his voice actor now is worlds better than back in the day, as we welcome him with open arms to Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
Along with Barry, you can also play as Chris Redfield, Jack Krauser, Hunk, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Rebecca Chambers and Claire Redfield in the game. The levels we will be playing in are remastered stages from Resident Evil 4 and 5. Past the break for screens of the always sexy Barry, and look out for the games release exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS on June 28th. READ MORE
We haven’t really seen or heard from Rebecca Chambers in a while, and honestly, I’m offended. I mean, I thought we had a good thing going Becks, and you haven’t even called? Texted? You must be out gallivanting with that young studly ragamuffin Billy. WELL I WON’T STAND FOR IT!
Excuse me, I flew off the handle a bit. Young Becky C will be joining us on our Mercenaries 3D adventures on the Nintendo 3DS this June 28th. Screens past the break. READ MORE
It’s no secret that The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is an awesome game. It’s also pretty lengthy.

Over at Amazon.co.uk the Nintendo 3DS has broken all previous pre-order records. It’s the number 1 most pre-ordered system of all time. Before the 3DS was the PS3, the Wii, Kinect, and Playstation Move. It just goes to show you the price tag on this little powerhouse isn’t stopping it one bit.
“It’s unusual for a handheld console to attract this amount of excitement in the run up to launch, such high levels of interest are normally reserved for the play-at-home hardware like the ground-breaking Nintendo Wii and last year’s Microsoft Kinect ,” said Chris Poad, Director of Video Games at Amazon.co.uk Ltd. “Nintendo 3DS is launching at a time when interest in all things 3D is incredibly high and with the promise of real 3D graphics without glasses, it’s a real breakthrough in handheld video game entertainment.”READ MORE
If my sources are correct, the Nintendo 3DS will be the 1st Nintendo “system” ever to be released with no Mario game at launch. That is LUDICROUS! However, Nintendo will rectify shorty after the release of the 3DS by bringing Super Mario 3D out. It is currently being made by the same team that had done the Super Mario Galaxy games for the Wii.
The 3DS releases March 27th, and near the end of May, users will get an update activating the Nintendo eShop. The update will also include a way for 3DS owners to transfer their DSiWare games to their 3DS. More past el breako. READ MORE
