Super Mario 3D World (WiiU) – Review

30 Nov

I’ll be honest, when Super Mario 3D World was first revealed, I wasn’t impressed. Nintendo’s first mainline console Mario title since the Galaxy series turned out to be what looked like Super Mario 3D Land plus multiplayer and it just didn’t excite me. But as Nintendo showed more of the game, I started to see its potential. And now that I’ve played the game, I realize how much of a mistake it was to doubt Nintendo. The Big N delivered an absolute masterpiece.

Play ball!
There’s a familiar story to Super Mario 3D World, with Bowser kidnapping something (this time fairies, not Princess Peach). Instead of Mario going at the rescue effort alone, he’s backed up by Luigi, Princess Peach and Blue Toad (Yellow Toad clearly got the shaft here). Players can choose any of the four characters to complete a level with. They all control the same but have slight differences: Mario controls the way we’ve all come to expect, Luigi’s fluttery jump gives his jumps more length, Peach can float briefly to extend her airtime and Toad can run faster than the others. Luigi and Peach are the go-to characters if a level is giving you fits, while Mario and Toad provide more of a challenge.

Beyond the character choice, you probably already know how this game plays if you’ve played a recent Mario title. You’ll run, jump, swim and ground pound through various levels in a multitude of different settings, from ice and lava to hills and clouds. It also includes some additional moves from past 3D Mario titles, such as the long jump, somersault jump and spin.

All of your running and jumping escapades will be done in glorious HD, bursting with color and running at a crisp 60 frames per second. The fun and joy is on full display and it even includes effects like raindrops landing on the screen during rainy levels, appropriately bright or spooky lightning and clever use of shadows in certain levels. No matter how many characters are on screen at once, the framerate never wavered on me. Nintendo may have been late to the HD party but they sure know how to use it now. A full orchestra plays the songs of the Super Mario 3D World soundtrack and it’s a pleasure for the eardrums. The songs are addictive and you’ll be humming (maybe even singing) along with the tunes even after your gameplay session has ended. The soundtrack includes many new songs as well as some older songs (such as the Super Mario Galaxy theme) given a new spin. It's about an even split between new and old tunes, but even the older ones feel different thanks to the new orchestral arrangements.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS) – Review

30 Nov

One thing I've always loved about Nintendo is how they have consistently managed to stick to their roots while also evolving and switching things up just enough to make the old new again. They quite effectively demonstrated this in 2006 with their pseudo-reboot in New Super Mario Bros. - a game designed to tickle the fancy of all those wearing rose tinted goggles of nostalgia while also incorporating new elements and power-ups from more recent games to make it unique from its inspiration. Since then, I've regularly fantasized and dreamed about the idea of some of my other favorites from the 8-bit and 16-bit eras getting similar treatment, where they retain the look and feel of the original while adding new elements to make them more interesting and modern. One of those dream projects was a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the SNES, but I always worried no game would live up to that classic; even when Iwata announced The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on Nintendo Direct, I wasn't sold on the idea. However, now that I've completed it, I can honestly say that A Link Between Worlds is everything I hoped, and far beyond my expectations; I don't think I could have been more pleased with the results.

Looks so familiar, doesn't it?

At the start you're dropped into a familiar situation in a familiar world. Link is having nightmares of his time with the Princess, only to be woken up in his home by his childhood friend. Instantly, as soon as you leave your home, you know that everything about A Link Between Worlds is a labor of love addressed to fans of the original. The 3D graphics are crisp and a great homage to the 2D sprites they emulate, the sound effects are pitch perfect, and every single track in the score is a perfect recreation of the original, but better. Not only do you hear those wonderful tunes from the SNES era, but the quality is vastly improved. The horns are stronger, the violins have a better harmony, and every single chime, chip, or tweet is a twang at the heartstrings. This looks and sounds exactly like one would hope a sequel would look and sound, and it's glorious. Part of me worries that this is nostalgia talking – and in a way it is – but the quality is there, and there are some new tracks as well, such as a particularly creepy forest temple theme, or the final dungeon theme, both of which fit into the mood established by the sounds of Death Mountain or Misty Mire. Blend the returning tracks of A Link to the Past with modern sounds from Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, and you have a winner on multiple levels.

It only takes a few moments to get into the mood, but if you ignore the immediate and pressing urge to explore everything, you quickly head to your job at the blacksmith's, where you meet a great swordsman who is getting his blade tempered. Upon his departure, it is revealed that he forgot his sword, and you must head to the sanctuary in the north to return it to him. However, all is not well, and upon arrival you find that Yuga – The villain of A Link Between Worlds – has defeated the swordsman and imprisoned him in a painting. You confront Yuga, only to find that he does the same to you. Luckily, you escape, and in the process gain the ability to turn into a moving picture that can scuttle across walls – a skill that becomes the crux of A Link Between Worlds. If you've played the SNES prequel, you have a basic idea of the plot from this point forth: you find pendants while Yuga captures the seven sages, an act that creates a rift between the two worlds that allows you, using your new-found wall-scaling skills, to seamlessly travel between the worlds via multi-colored cracks in various walls around Hyrule. The strategic location of each and every crevasse leads to a degree of strategic teleportation and secret hunting, naturally.

Namco Bandai Files More Tales of Trademarks – News

29 Nov

It looks like Namco Bandai's summer trademark binge was merely the first phase of trademarking, as the company trademarked two new Tales namesTales of Asteria and Tales of Kanade.

So far, we've seen other Tales trademarks turn into new projects or rumored projects. Tales of Link was announced as a mobile title,  Tales of Bibliotheca was announced for iOS and Tales of Zestiria has been trademarked in the US and Europe, suggesting it will be the next mainline Tales title. Whichever name the new Tales title goes by should be revealed soon as a teaser site exists for the game.

Rune Factory Developer Neverland Files for Bankruptcy – News

29 Nov

Neverland, developer of the Harvest Moon spinoff series, Rune Factory, has filed for bankruptcy, the company announced on its official website (via Siliconera). The company cited changing business trends and unsuccessful fundraising efforts in its decision to seek bankruptcy and close its doors.

Neverland has been developing the Rune Factory series since its inception, and its latest release, Rune Factory 4, was the fastest selling title in series history in Japan. The company had said last year that Rune Factory 5 was in the works, but the fate of the title is certainly in doubt now.

In addition to Rune Factory, Neverland is also known for developing multiple titles in the Lufia and Shining Force RPG series'.

Rune Factory developer Neverland files for bankruptcy

29 Nov

Rune Factory developer Neverland has filed for bankruptcy and halted all current project. It comes after an eleventh-hour funding drive failed to rescue the Japanese company.

Siliconera reports – via Game Jouhou – that an official Neverland statement cited changes in the business environment as a key issue behind its losses, and that it will begin bankruptcy proceedings soon.

Rune Factory 4 was the studios last effort, published under Marvelous AQL. GI.biz adds that it was the series’ fastest-selling entry to date with 150,000 unit sold as of September 2012, but it hasn’t helped steer the firm away from financial trouble. Neverland was founded in 1993.

We’ll have more on this as it develops.

Kinect Sports Rivals: axed sporting events discussed by Rare

29 Nov

Kinect: Sports Rivals developer Rare has discussed the Xbox One title’s event types, including several cancelled sports like horse riding. It’s neigh joke.

Speaking with OXM, Rare’s Danny Isaac explained, “Yeah, there were some that didn’t make it. Some we cut completely – we had horse racing and fishing, which we built as prototypes. All the sports that made it into the product were all built as prototypes before.

“We really focused on what could bring the Kinect sensor alive, and what can put it on that pedestal. Horse-racing and fishing were kind of good, but they didn’t make it. We also had some really cool kayaking prototypes, as well as a Frisbee one, and a table tennis game.

“When we go for our preproduction stage and our concept stage, we tend to go very broad and very wide. At the time though the sensor wasn’t complete, so we were prototyping on the old Kinect, as well as trying to mimic the fidelity that we’d have on the actual sensor. That’s when we proofed out things like rock-climbing, with the open and closed hands, and wake-racing, soccer, target shooting and tennis.”

While Kinect Sports: Rivals isn’t launching until Spring 2014 now, you can check out the ‘Preseason’ demo, available now on Xbox One. Previews suggest that Microsoft’s new Kinect sensor really does show a marked improvement when used with Rare’s title.

Nvidia: “the PC platform is far superior to any console”

29 Nov

Nvidia’s consumer sales manager Matt Wright has stressed that PC is the gaming platform of choice, and that its functionality makes it “far superior” to consoles. He recognises that some staunch console players may need some extra convincing however.

It follows the UK and European PS4 launch.

Speaking with MCV, Wright said, “We are proposing small form-factor PCs to be a viable alternative to the next-gen consoles. Enthusiast players want the ultimate games system and that is the PC. The PC platform is far superior to any console when it comes to gaming, plus you get all the extra functionality that a computer brings.”

He added that from the outside looking in, PC gaming may appear more complex and technical to the layman, but stressed, “We want to make PC gaming as simple as possible and we think that it already becoming much more relevant and appealing to casual gamers,”

Steam also helps. “Steam now has more users than Xbox Live,” Wright concluded. “There is a whole new generation who grew up playing on PC with titles like Minecraft or World of Tanks. There’s a huge community who love playing their games on PC.”

What’s your take? Are PS4 and Xbox One already obsolete? Is PC the way forward? Let us know what you think below.

Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 patch 1.05 adds left-handed support & more

29 Nov

Killzone: Shadow Fall developer Guerrilla Games has released a new patch for the PS4 shooter, adding southpaw controller mapping and other tweaks into the mix.

It follows our Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 verdict. Check out what we thought through the link.

Now Guerrilla’s 1.05 patch adds the following bug fixes:

  • Several UI issues fixed
  • Error messages in Multiplayer amended to have better indication of the error
  • Edge-case crashes related to friends lists fixed
  • Additional integrity fixes for the patching system

CVG adds that the update adds left-handed controller support, but that it only affects the DualShock 4′s sticks and not the triggers.

The site also explains that the length of campaign chapter seven has been shortened a little, and a particularly annoying section in chapter eight has had some collision tweaking to avoid repeated death. It’s a seriously frustrating section too.

Issuing a caveat, Guerrilla said in a statement, “Patch v1.05 should download and install automatically, but in rare instances where this doesn’t happen you may encounter an error message when you try to enter a multiplayer match. If this is the case, please reboot your PS4 to begin the patch installation process. The integrity fix included with patch v1.05 will prevent this error from reoccurring in the future.”

Xbox One: eights years was right for previous cycle, says Harrison

29 Nov

Xbox One is out now, some eight years after its predecessor, the Xbox 360 launched. Microsoft’s Xbox VP Phil Harrison has responded to recent claims that the previous cycle was too long, and has stated that eight years was correct.

It follows comments from EA’s Patrick Soderlund, who suggested that the last cycle was too long, and that PS4 and Xbox One will both be replaced by new consoles in five to six years.

Now, speaking with MCV, Harrison responded, “Eight years is actually the right time. Xbox 360 continues to grow, over 80m units and counting. And the underlying silicon chip design innovations that allow Xbox One to be what it is, didn’t reach the performance level and price point that we needed until right now.

“So if we had come out three years ago with a new console, it would not be to the same degree of performance or price that we have now, and Xbox 360 had seven years of growth which I think is a record for a console.”

Do you feel that the last cycle was too long? How long do you think it will be until PS5 and ‘Xbox Two’ come out?
