DuckTales Remastered – Impressions

ducktales remastered logo screen DuckTales Remastered   Impressions

Siliconera has posted a quick look at the upcoming HD remake of Disney’s DuckTales game (originally released on the NES back in 1989), DuckTales Remastered. Here’s a portion of their impressions:

“DuckTales Remastered from Capcom and WayForward is a HD remake of the 24 year old Nintendo game. I got to play a little bit of Ducktales Remastered which starts by letting players select the difficulty – easy, normal or hard. After you decide, the demo whisks players away to Transylvania where Uncle Scrooge’s nemesis Magica De Spell resides.”

Resident Evil 6 Impressions

Here’s a portion of some Resident Evil 6 impressions from Game Informer:

“Resident Evil 6 tinkers with the series’ formula by allowing players to move and shoot, fire from the ground, and choose between three separate campaigns. It also experiments with bursts of four-player co-op and a competitive multiplayer mode built into the campaign. While the additional options are interesting concepts, their implementation is too random to consider true selling points. We didn’t get a chance to play thoroughly test these peripheral online-only modes prior to the game’s release, so consider this a supplement to our proper review.

Two-player co-op is the main draw of Resident Evil 6, but the duos of protagonists cross paths throughout the campaign for some four-player action. Suddenly, Leon and Helena may be battling a Nemesis-like beast in China alongside Jake and Sherry. Or Chris and Piers may align with Jake and Sherry to destroy AA guns and kill building-sized monsters. You can be randomly paired with two other human players that also happen to be playing these sequences if there are any. You can’t voice chat with these players, so don’t expect any masterful coordination. There’s no built-in matchmaking to experience these moments with friends, either.”

TGS 2012 – Fantasy Life Impressions

Destructoid has an article up with impressions of the upcoming 3DS game, Fantasy Life. Here’s a portion of their impressions:

“After three long years of development that started on the Nintendo DS, Fantasy Life will finally release on the 3DS on December 27 in Japan. Level-5 was a much different company when the game was first announced. It was a company focused on making great RPGs instead of adventure games — not that there is anything wrong with that. Along with Ni no Kuni, Fantasy Life looks to be another great return to form for the studio and one that will fill a much-needed niche in the 3DS’ library.

Disregard the underwhelming Animal Crossing wannabe called London Life, attached to Professor Layton and the Last Specter last fall. Fantasy Life is also co-developed by Brownie Brown (Mother 3) and built upon the idea of being a peasant instead of a hero, but it is a much deeper and action-based game.”

TGS 2012 – Tank! Tank! Tank! Impressions

Destructoid has posted an article with their impressions of the Tank! Tank! Tank! demo from this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Here’s part of the article:

“I had a go at the new four-player mode for upcoming Wii U game Tank! Tank! Tank! here at TGS 2012. Namco Bandai calls it My Kong Mode, and they say it’s a perfect fit for their casual party battle title. The game also includes a free-for-all mode, a team vs. mode, and a “fight against giant monsters” mode, but we’ll be focusing on Kong mode here.

The Kong mode has up to three players using standard Wii Remotes (in the sideways-held controller mode) to drive tanks, trying to take down a giant “Kong” robot, controlled by a fourth player using the Wii U game pad. The Kong player will use the Wii U pad’s screen to attack the tanks while the others view a split screen configuration on the television. The attackers are free to drive around the stage picking up power-ups to add weapons to their arsenal, using anything they can find to chip away at the Kong’s huge life bar.”

Club Nintendo Picross Impressions

Nintendo Life has posted an impressions article of thus far Japan-only title, Club Nintendo Picross. Here’s part of their impressions:

club nintendo picross japan 3ds Club Nintendo Picross Impressions

“As many of us have seen in recent years, Nintendo is a company that deals a good line in fan service. Nintendo has produced everything from the recent abundance of anniversary titles, collector’s books, cards, and pretty much anything else in the hope that fans can supplement their game collections and help celebrate their favorite characters.

One new addition to the Japanese Club Nintendo original goods, called Club Nintendo Picross, is essentially nothing but pure fan service. For a mere 80 Club Nintendo points, members can purchase a code that they can use on the 3DS eShop, which will then download to their 3DS consoles just like a normal download title.”

Nintendo Land: Mario Chase Impressions

GoNintendo has posted some impressions from the Mario Chase attraction of Nintendo Land. Here’s a partial look at those impressions:

“Mario Chase could very well be the simplest game in the entire Nintendo Land collection. It’s basically a game of tag…that’s it. While it may sound like a bare-bones experience, I also believe Mario Chase is one of the most fun experiences in Nintendo Land. I haven’t found a Nintendo Land attraction that I don’t enjoy, but Mario Chase’s easy gameplay and addictive nature make it very hard to put down.

As I said, Mario Chase is a very simple game to play. Up to 4 players take on the roles of characters that are trying to capture Mario. The Mario player is playing on the GamePad. The 4 TV players have to run around the map and find Mario. The GamePad player has to keep away from the 4 chasers and run down the time limit to zero. That’s really all there is to it!”

Various Wii U Impressions

ComputerAndVideoGames has posted an article looking at 4 Wii U games. They have impressions up for Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, Assassin’s Creed III, & ZombiU. Here’s a portion of the article:

“Nintendo Land is essentially the Wii U’s answer to Wii Sports. If you’re a Nintendo fan who’s not yet to be allured by a mini-game compilation featuring some of gaming’s most loved franchises, then you almost surely will when you play the game for yourself.
For one it’s gorgeous; over the years Nintendo’s been responsible for some of the most visually striking art styles in modern gaming, and this is the house of Mario’s first chance to set its creativity loose within the realm of hi-definition. Featuring a Banjo-Kazooie Nuts ‘n Bolts-esque patchwork art style (honestly, it could share the same assets), Nintendo Land oozes charm, cuteness and nostalgia from every Mii-worn costume.”
