Doctor Octoroc has taken the Geek Phenom Musical Dr. Horrible and made it 8 bit. You can get the soundtrack here. It’s bloody chiptune brilliant!
So over on Joystiq they have the news that Nintendo’s next machine is a 3-d Nintendo Ds. A portable 3-d system seems almost as far fetched as when Nintendo announced a 2 screen touch screen game boy. It’s hard to remember but most of the gaming masses, thought that was absurd then. But now who doesn’t own a DS or know someone who does? Some interesting bits from the press release. Backwards Compatible with all DS and DSI games is a plus. No glasses required is probably the biggest thing to me. If they can really pull off 3-d without glasses, then I gaurantee you some of the major television makers will be calling Nintendo headquarters in Japan, for the liscensing rights. Everything is pointing to 3d as the next must have thing in home entertainment, and one of the major consumer problems has been the cost, and the use of glasses. One problem solved. Now we will have to wait to E3 June 15th-17th, for the official news.
I can’t help but remember the last time Nintendo released a 3-d system, the results were less than spectacular.
I managed to snag a copy of Super Paper Mario for the wii yesterday at a big box retailer who chose to break the street date. It’s my first Wii purchase since launch and so far I’m enjoying it. The puzzles are pretty good but I wonder how long ill be interested in the the long text breaks. It does have some rpg elements which is nice and the whole ecth a sketch look is amazing. After playing Gears of War for the past couple weeks, all those bright crayola nintendo colors are a sight for my eyes.
I’ve decided to pass on seeing Grindhouse at the cinema. I’ll rent them instead and not have to worry about drinking to much coke during the three hour marathon.
Aqua Teen is confirmed for our local small theatre on Friday. I will be there friday evening! Because, you know, Meatwad on the big screen.
Today Kid Icarus comes out for the Virtual Console. for five bucks i can rebuy one of the best games from the nes era. You have to wonder if nintendo is tracking the sales of this guy because he’s now in smash bros and they could be planning a very awesome remake of this wonderful game. Seriously if you have a wii, and you got five bucks. What are you waiting for? Medusa awaits.
