Nintendo will be revealing some games for Nintendo 3DS next month at Nintendo World 2011 in Tokyo. This is consider just a teaser , but we all will be waiting to see them. As for the North American 3DS price? That's coming out the second week of January in New York. For now here's a list of game that will be revealed:(note: games in bold are demos others are works in progress)
Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D "The Naked Sample"
The PSPhone could be coming sometime to North America and Europe this spring according to a report in an Japanese newspaper. It will be based off of the PSP GO, a PSP where you have to download the games vis WI-FI or a PC, and run the android OS.That means there is already a good section of games and apps for it. No pricing or what cell carrier will have it.

It's Christmas day, and somewhere wildcat, hawkman, and golden age flash and green lantern are heading to New Hampshire to visit golden age red tornado, who is dressed up as Santa Claus at a department store, and is an old lady. What happens? the store gets robbed by Santa mask wearing punks.... Big mistake. After the JSA takes care of most of the punks, Ma kicks the one straggler punk's ass.I like it when the JSA brings in the former members of the golden age, and showing what they use to look like. Red Tornado a pot wearing fighting mama is great and ends up joining the team as the cook. This story is the JSA book princes of darkness(also great, give it a read). seeing how ma taking care of the team at the HQ is nice to see. I have fallen in love with the JSA, and plan on reading the All star comics archives at the library, with some libraries in have.
On January the 11, you will be able to take you own idea for a hero or villain, and save some lives , or raise hell in DC Universe online. Today the release date was released. North America will get it on the 11th, Europe will get it 3 days later on the 14th (probably because all the snow , plus they have no snow plows). The game will cost $50 for PC and $60 for PS3 with 30 days free then a $15 monthly fee. I expect that many will disregard the $10 price difference and get the PS3 version, easier than updating your PC. There is a $100 collectors edition than hardcore DC fanboys will nab up. I also expect that many Marvel fans will make Marvel hero rips off in the DCU, Be prepared to see many "Spider-Man" and "Captain America" look a likes. So are you going to join in on the hero vs villain mayhem in DC Universe online?
What if superman landed in soviet Russia? What if Lex Luthor and Louis Lane was married? What if Batman was a terrorist? All these and more can be found in Superman Red Son, a"what if" tale of soviet Superman and what the world would be like.
A great story, I never got lost or bored with it. Seeing what the major players in the DCU would be like if superman's ship landed in the Soviet Union was very interesting. a unchecked Luthor taking over the world (except Russia) was disturbing, yet very interesting as well. Also seeing Wonder Woman, Batman, Lois Luthor (yea that's right....LUTHOR!) and the Green Lantern corps is like if a soviet superman was all in this alternative universe was great to see. The ending was a little confusing, does Earth become a Luthor controlled Krypton, or it was all along an alternative Krypton? Most people put off these "what if" books like the elseworlds series, but I like them. I recommend Superman Red Son and the other elsewords books, all are a great read.
It's that time of the year, no, not Santa Claus leaving you geeky gifts. It's time everyone picks the game of the year! Red Dead Revolver got the GOTY on the VGAs last night, many agree and many disagree. So it's time to suppor your favorite game of 2010. You get to nominate, then vote for the GITMON GOTY! Any game, from any system, from any company, even iPod/iPad games. How do you do it? Just comment on this post, or @ or DM me on twitter (@jbnet211) with the name of the game (or games but only up to 2 games), and the system it is on. Later this week (or the next) the top 4 to 6 games will be put on a poll for the world to decide. Voting will end the last week of the year. So nominate you fav game, tell other games to nominate, and then vote!
Siege battlefield collects the series of one-shots that happen between siege #3 and #4. Loki, spider-man (including Ms.Marvel), Captain america (or Captain Americans),young avengers, and secret warriors are the books in this collection. There is only 2 good books in my opinion, spider-man and secret warriors. The others I just did not like of could get into the story. Spider-man had a great story involving Venom and Ms.Marvel. Venom taking over Ms.Marvel was great, and also kinds revealing. Secret warriors was good too. It deals with Aries son, dealing with his death(you remember, The sentry turned him in to hamburger meat). His son pissed at the government and takes it out on a bunch of secret service agents while visiting the president. After kicking ass, he leaves the president a note. What about the other stories? Had no idea what has going on in Loki, got bored with Capitan America, and I never liked the young avengers. I recommend that you get the one-shots of Siege: Spider-man and Siege: Secret Warriors, and just skip Siege Battlefield.
Like every thing else in this "You idea is shit, lets use this one but make it better" world, Tomb Raider and Lara Croft is getting rebooted. As seen on the cover of gameinfomer above (I use to get that mag), we see the not too good looking Lara, with what looks like Rambo's Bow. Rumors are that this is a young Lara that washed up on a island.... then turns up she already dead (kidding lost fans, except for that island part). Could this be the first Tomb Raider game that I will play (could never get into the series), we'll see.
If you're like me and never got a chance to play any of the Oddworld games, here's your chance.OddBoxx is coming to PC vis steam before the end of the year. It will have four games, two already on sale on steam and two new ones that were on Xbox. No release date or price has been set. I bet many will get. this game. If my PC was not dead, I would.
Microsoft may be planning to bring cable channels to the Xbox 360, turning it into a cable box. It may ether be bringing in channels, via cable companies using the console as a cable box, or offer the channels via a xbox cable service. We already have ESPN on xbox (via ESPN 3) and does not sounds to far fetch that MS would do this. Two channels mention were HBO and Showtime, both premium channels. They would be offer ether a la carte (pick and chose of you want them) or just get the shows only. An a la carte
option for all channels available would be good, there's been talk of doing this for cable for years and could greatly help MS and greatly hurt cable.This service would be offered on xbox live in about 12 months. This is just another step (the next would be DVR consoles) in the evolution of gaming consoles.
