Nintendo Direct – 3DS Louvre Guide Video November 27, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

One of the most famous museums in the entire world is the Louvre located in Paris, France.  Let’s face it, unless you are an art buff, you may not be aware of all the important details behind many famous works of art, and tour guides aren’t always available.  Since at least the 90s, many museums have offered special audio tours provided on an interactive CD-ROM.

Well, the Louvre has done something different.  When you ask for an interactive tour, they give you a Nintendo 3DS.  Now, that program that the Louvre offers will soon be available to download on the Nintendo eShop, and yes, it will work if you bring it with you to the museum.

Speaking as someone who’s already been to the Louvre, this makes me want to go back.

There was no downloadable launch game for the Xbox One I was more excited for than LocoCycle from Twisted Pixel.  I’ve known Twisted Pixel for games like Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley, Ms. Splosion Man, and The Gunstringer, and I was really excited to see their newest game downloadable on the Xbox One.

So without further ado, here are the first fifteen minutes of the game presented without commentary in glorious 1080p HD.  Now can we please get a Comic Jumper 2?

LocoCycle is out now for the Xbox One.

Does anyone remember when I was raving about Sony’s E3 2013 Quest in Playstation Home?  Well, it looks like Sony is doing something like it once again to celebrate the launch of the Playstation 4.  A new area, dubbed the Greatness Awaits space, has a quest that all PS3 owners can join.  If you participate in it you can earn download codes for three classic Playstation games, Warhawk, Twisted Metal, and Destruction Derby.

You will enter the Greatness Awaits playspace automatically the next time you log into Playstation Home.  To start the quest just talk to the guy next to the giant Playstation Vita.  The PS1 games can be redeemed through the Playstation Store.  They should be playable on the PS3, PSP or PS Vita.

Playstation Home is free to play only on the Playstation 3.

Dead Rising 3 Day One Edition Unboxing November 23, 2013

There was no game I wanted more for the Xbox One at launch than Dead Rising 3.  I’ve been a huge fan of the series since the first game came out on the Xbox 360, and now the third game looks like it truly takes advantage of the power of the Xbox One by giving what many have been wanting for years, an open world zombie survival game.

So what makes this the Day One Edition, and what are the benefits to it?  Lets take a look, shall we?

 

Dead Rising 3 is out now exclusive to the Xbox One.

UPDATE: I believe the provided code has been redeemed.  Don’t worry, more game unboxings and giveaways will be coming all weekend.

Xbox One Chat Headset Close Up November 23, 2013

When the Xbox One’s package was first announced, a lot of gamers cried foul that a headset was not going to be included with the system like it had been with the Xbox 360.  Microsoft hadn’t considered packing a headset with the Xbox One because the Kinect’s microphone array could allow for in-game party chat, negating the need for personal headsets.  Well, gamers preferred having their own personal headsets and eventually Microsoft changed their mind and included a personal headset with the Xbox One.

The Xbox One comes with a simple mono headset very similar in design to the Xbox 360’s headset, and like the Xbox 360’s headset, it uses a very proprietary audio port to connect to the controller.  Let’s take a closer look.
