It’s apparently to promote the new Mario game on 3DS. I don’t work near downtown, so I missed seeing this!

OoT Revisited… again

September 28th, 2011 by Cat

Categories: 3DS, Gamecube, N64

For some reason, I’ve been playing old games lately – Guitar Hero 3, Mario Kart Double Dash, and Ocarina of Time. Though, the version of Ocarina of Time I’ve been playing is the “new” one for 3DS.

I’m currently in the Shadow Temple, overcoming my childhood fear of humping zombies and really grabby hands. (This temple seriously breaches my personal bubble.) So far, the 3DS version is mostly the same as the N64 original. The story, the characters, the world, the dungeons, the items – all the same. There are a few differences in other areas though.

Well, we’re back from Boston! Buckley and I visited Robbie, and we went to PAX East on Friday. The rest of the weekend, we spent mainly eating good foods and gaming XD;; We did indeed finish Scott Pilgrim and started on Tales of Vesperia, which seems to have a lot of (bad) dialog. Perhaps more on that another time because PAX is way more interesting.

3DS Thoughts

Well, although 3DS information and visuals have been around the interwebs for quite some time, today has been announced for NA and Europe (release date, price).

I think its a pretty cool handheld, I mean, sure, its alittle bit expensive, but seriously I never thought It would be cheapier. Also, how many consoles do you know that let you have portable 3D? I know, I know, It may sound a little too gimmicky, but, cmon… didnt they just said the same about the motion controls of the Wii, or the touch-based DS? They turned out to be the best systems of this generation. Well, maybe not the best SYSTEMS, but Im pretty sure they had the better games. I dont understand people. Really. They are all just saying “omgz lulz, its just a PSP with 3D lawl nabs”. But the truth is, Paper Mario, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, even the enhancement remakes like Ocarina of Time or Star Fox, cool 3rd party franchises like Metal Gear Solid, Street Figther or Resident Evil? Cmon people. Is really horsepower everything you look on a console?
What about the fun?

Well, im kinda pissed that people around the globe thinks like that. Its like “what happened to playing a fun game? Now you all just play to get frustrated because people online own you and then teabag you”.
I really like some Microsoft and Sony games. But I dont get the hate for Nintendo these days.

Anyways, I will really try to buy a 3DS on day 1, but its going to be difficult, I’ve been living on my own apartmen for some months now, my girlfriend has been staying too. If I dont get one, no problem, I know I will get one soon ennough.

What about you? Do you like the 3DS? What about its games? And how do you feel about comparing it to other known consoles on the market?

Just hoping this doesnt look too tl;dr… greets.
