Nintendo’s formula, like Apple’s, rarely disappoints. Since the Game Boy Advance days, we’ve come to expect at least three iterations of Nintendo’s handhelds per generation, and the 3DS XL will be the first redesign of the 3DS to hit store shelves.
Set to release July 28th in Japan and August 19th in the U.S., the 3DS XL will be cheaper than I had anticipated! Set at $199, this portable will tote a 4.88-inch 3D screen on top and a 4.18-inch lower touchscreen. As for the resolution of each, the 3D panel will have a 240×800 resolution and the touch panel will have a 240×320 resolution. Unfortunately, the resolution on both sounds inadequate, but will have to see it in person before we rule it out. Continue reading →
Other than the acting, this video is awesome. By Jason Craft. Using 3D tracking, seamless camera cuts and 3D camera projection…
“I tried to match the game as close as possible. This was the most challenging project I have ever undertaken, consisting of 3D tracking, seamless camera cuts and 3D camera projection.”
This is the big one folks. If you’ve read the original graphic novel then you know what I’m talking about, if you haven’t read it get on it, and if you don’t read then make time to watch the animated version. It seems they are splitting it up into 2 parts, which is good because it’s a huge story. It just sucks that we will have to wait even longer for part 2 to come out.
Below is an early glimpse of some of the unfinished animation from Dark Knight Returns set to come out this fall.
This awesome hoodie has a fully retractable face plate and visor hood, with a fixed breast plate, spauldrons, and elbow couters.
New iPhone component. Maybe for iPhone 5. But it is neither a battery door nor a middle pate. If it’s real, I love the design.
What if Star Wars was shot like a Spanish Telenovela? You’ll never see Empire Strikes Back in the same way again.
The best Humble Bundle to date? I think so! Just look at that line up!
What is The Humble Indie Bundle you ask? Here’s how it works. Humble Bundle, Inc., offers a bundle of great games and you name your price. Pay more than the average and get hooked up with some bonus goodies!
Yesterday, Humble Bundle put up for sale it’s fifth offering which includes some amazing indie games that you’ll definitely want to get your hands on. No matter what you decide to pay they’ll hook you up with Amnesia, Psychonauts, Limbo, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery. Pay more than the average and Bastion will be yours as well!
Let’s not leave out one of the best parts of this whole deal. Included for every game in the pack is the complete soundtrack in FLAC or MP3! You won’t get the Bastion soundtrack unless you pay more than the average, though. Considering the current average price as of writing this is only $7.66, just fork over the few extra bucks and get the complete bundle.
During checkout you’ll also be able to choose where the proceeds of the sale go with option of supporting the developers, charity, Humble Bundle, Inc., or any custom combination of your choice. It really doesn’t get better than this.
Want to take advantage of this awesome deal? Go here or click on the image above. You’ve only got 13 more days before the sales over. But first, watch the preview video below. It features the Bastion guy and Tim Schafer getting excited over indie games.
Leap Motion has created a new device, called the Leap. It is an 8 cubic feet space in front of your computer, once connected to your computer via USB, it creates a four-cubic-foot virtual workspace. It claims is 200 times more accurate than existing technology and will take gesture controls to the next level. Check out the video! “Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimetre.” “For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.”
The Leap is $70, and a select few can pre-order them now, with the full roll-out coming this winter.
Some good advice here.
