Metroid Prime 3 in true 3D
Posted on 14 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Features, Wii | 21 Comments
A personal undertaking of mine recently has been taking screenshots of Metroid Prime 3 and translating them into 3D. I began to wonder a few days ago, “What would Metroid Prime look like if Retro Studios developed the Prime so that the experience was similar to virtual reality?” To be honest, I do think that there is a possibility that one day, we will see games in a real 3D environment. How amazing would it be to see a Metroid coming out of the screen and leeching forward at you? Metroid Prime 3 is probably one of the better choices to view in 3D, as it is from the first-person perspective, and the game itself was superb. Of course, you will need 3D glasses to view the images, but they are not very expensive (I’m talking about the Red/Blue glasses) and often come packaged with DVDs and comic books. Also, if anyone has a request for a different series in 3D, or more Metroid Prime 3 images, let me know via the contact form and I’ll do my best to put them on Nintendo Everything (possibly a weekly/monthly feature?!) And hey…Perhaps Retro Studios could somehow include real 3D (head-tracking?) if they did decide to make a bundle of the Prime games while reworking the original two.
– 3D glasses necessary to view in 3D (Red/blue recommended)
– Give your eyes a minute to adjust to the 3D – I promise, it works!
– Some images work better in 3D than others
– Original images were not taken by myself
– In the future, I may try to investigate a way to make the images 3D without the need of 3D glasses.

Price of Persia on Wii not out of the question

The game ships on PS3, 360 and PC later this year, but a complementary DS title is also in the works. ‘It’s connected to the game in a very interesting way, but it’s not a port. A complementary experience, shall we say?’ And the prospect of a Wii Version? ‘We ported Two Thrones to the Wii. It was a quick and dirty port, i can say. With that we saw a lot of potential. The controls were not fully optimised, did not take full advantage of the Wii, but a lot of people saw the POP universe could certainly have a home on Wii. Since then people have been looking into that, but there’s no formal announcement. We are investigating it very seriously. You would never see a port of the game we’re making however. That’ll never, never happen.’ – Ben Mattes, Ubisoft

Retro Studios preparing to hire

It wasn’t a good sign that some of the most important staff members were leaving Retro, but this should be an indication that the company will remain intact.
Wii vs. Xbox 360 vs. PS3 – The real winner this generation
Posted on 14 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Features, Wii | 14 Comments
Okay, this might not have been the best way to analyze the winner for this console generation. As many may have assumed at this point, this data was collected by Google Fights. The Wii does, however, has the most pages on Google according to this service, followed by the PS3 and Xbox 360 in that order. To be honest, I don’t think there will ever be a real way to declare a winner, especially with all of the arguments between each side, but hopefully things like this will lighten the situation for video gaming fans.

ESRB rates Earthbound
Posted on 14 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 2 Comments
In this month’s issue of Nintendo Power, it became clear that people want to see Earthbound on the Virtual Console. Perhaps we’re one step closer to seeing this happen, as the ESRB has rated the game. At this point however, I would be cautiously optimistic, as previous games that have been rated on the ESRB have yet to see a release.
