Don Bluth Announces Dragon’s Lair: The Movie November 25, 2015

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Visionary director Don Bluth (Land Before Time, An American Tale, Titan A.E.) has officially announced that he is seeking to turn the beloved arcade game Dragon’s Lair into a feature-length film.  The problem is they need your help to do it.

Bluth and his production company have been interested in making a feature-length Dragon’s Lair film but have been unable to secure proper funding for it. They fully intend to make this film using traditional 2D hand-drawn animation techniques (matching the style of the original games), and it seems like Hollywood is only interested in funding 3D animated projects, even when it isn’t appropriate (Peanuts anyone?). Because of that, the film is going to be funded via crowdsourcing.

Dragon’s Lair was one of the most groundbreaking arcade titles of its day, and having played it via recent ports on iPhone and Blu-Ray Disc, it holds a special place in my heart.

If you’re interested in contributing to the movie, you can check out the project’s official IndieGoGo site. It is expected to go online December 1st, 2015.

Nintendo Announces StreetPass Weekend This Thanksgiving Weekend November 24, 2015

Across the country, Nintendo offers free wireless hotspots, called Nintendo Zone locations, for 3DS users. Usually you can find Nintendo Zone hotspots in various McDonald’s, Barnes and Noble Bookstores, AT&T retail stores, and Best Buy locations across the US. These hotspots not only offer Internet access to Nintendo handhelds, they also help players obtain StreetPass tags from the hotspot’s previous users.

Nintendo has just announced that this weekend they’re going to be shaking things up and offering random StreetPass tags to anyone who visits any active Nintendo Zone location all weekend long. That means that instead of getting access to the StreetPass tags of the previous six visitors to the hotspot when you connect to it, you’ll receive random StreetPass tags from players all over the country!  This is perfect for any players who need to fill up their StreetPass plaza with new tags!

Don’t forget, this weekend Nintendo is also offering a special distribution to Pokémon Trainers by offering the legendary Pokémon Hoopa to anyone who visits a Nintendo Zone equipped McDonald’s with a copy of Pokémon X/Y or Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire starting November 27th.  You can get it by accessing the game’s gift menu while connected to the hotspot.

A minor hotfix for Halo 5: Guardians was released earlier today. The hotfix repairs issues with save games and bookmarks caused by the previous update.

The new update is pretty small. If you had already installed the previous patch, the new update only weighs in at around 128MB of space.

Halo 5: Guardians is out now exclusively on Xbox One.

How To Transfer Items and Pokemon From Pokemon Dream Radar to Pokemon Black 2 or Pokemon White 2 November 23, 2015

Got a new How-To Video to help all of you take full advantage of an older game which I have only now started to play.  When it was first released in 2012, a lot of reviewers wrote off Pokémon Dream Radar as a completely useless application not worth your money.  Well, they’re wrong.  If you are like me, and can’t stop playing Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 on a 3DS/2DS system, you can enhance your game experience and use the Dream Radar app to transfer any Pokémon or items captured in the application to either game, and trust me, this is GREAT.

How do you perform this transfer?  Take a look below.

Pokémon transferred to a Generation 5 Pokémon game can be transferred to the Pokémon Bank.

Pokémon Black 2, Pokémon White 2 are out now for the Nintendo DS.  Pokémon Dream Radar is out now on the Nintendo eShop for any 3DS or 2DS system.
