Ninja Gaiden was one of those games that made a huge splash upon its return back in 2004 for the original Xbox. It's been 7 years and we are taking a look at the third with a new direction and director at its helm. LVLONE got a chance to get hands on with the game at E3 2011 and we're surprised to find out that some things have changed.
With Nintendo announcing the 3DS at E3 last year it almost didn't come as a surprise that they unveiled their newest console to be making its way into homes soon. Officially named Wii U, the focus is not on the console itself but on the controller. They had playable tech demos along with some games to be arriving for the consoles launch next year, we got a chance to check out what this new device is all about at Nintendo's booth at E3.
Am I a person you would call a Sonic fan? Yes. Have I played every Sonic game? No. Are all Sonic games good? No. But do I still have love for the little blue hedgehog? Absolutely. See Sega has tried to capture Sonic as he once was which isn't always an easy task but dare I say it I think this time they've done it! Sonic Generations brings the series back to its roots this time sporting not only the Sonic we've come to know from Sonic Adventures but the original Sonic from the very first game.
Capcom has been revamping there fighting franchises and with great success. First the Street Fighter IV series and then Marvel vs Capcom 3. What you haven't seen in awhile is a more traditional vs series, not since Capcom vs SNK. Utilizing the Street Fighter IV engine Capcom is now giving fans what they've been wanting which is a chance to battle it out with Tekken. LVLONE got a chance to get some hands on at E3 for a closer look.
It might have gotten lost in all the talk about Nintendo's new system but Wii owners will be happy to know that the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword isn't the only Nintendo game left to look forward to on the Wii. Nintendo announced at E3 that Kirby would be making a return to Wii and this time in a more classic way. As opposed to last year's Epic Yarn game, Kirby Wii brings back the classic look and gameplay to the Wii. It might not be the most exciting news coming out of Nintendo's announcements but fans of Kirby will definitely like that Kirby is getting one more game on the Wii.
The world of Rapture from the original Bioshock showed everyone a world where things can go terribly wrong when technology is ahead of its time. Navigating in a world that was destroyed can feel lonesome, thats why Bioshock Infinite throws out that formula with a more tension based situation. We got a look at Bioshock Infinite behind closed doors and let us tell you it left us wanting more!
It seemed like only yesterday that we had been enjoying one of our favorite franchises in Twisted Metal Black. One day however it was just gone and we hadn't seen it since, till now. The all new Twisted Metal comes back with a bang sporting new visuals, modes and ways to play. We got a chance to check out the game for quite sometime at E3 and we were very pleased with the results thus far.
Nintendo revealed during their press conference that Luigi's Mansion 2 is coming to the 3DS. Nintendo promises new gameplay elements with the sequel. Not much details we're shown, and no release date has been given.
Wii U is the new Nintendo console, the controller has a tablet interface that comes with a lot potential for games. At E3 Nintendo had several playable tech demos that were shown off to show what the new controller can do. Nintendo reminded everyone that the tech demos are just to show how the Wii U's controller can work and did not say that these were games. Overall even though the tech is at an early stage the demos showed enough of what the controller can do.
Nintendo has been giving us the games definitely something to look forward to. With the Wii U still in the shadows and the Wii U's controller making it's debut, the games that are coming up in their line up is amazing.
