You don't have to stay online always



But the game will require a one-time online activation.

EA revealed last month, that Mass Effect 3 will require Origin for PC version. Bioware says that the game will require a one-time online activation, but it can be used as many times as you like. So developers says that users will be fine with this decision as the game doesn't feature "Intrusive" DRM and you can also play Mass Effect 3 offline.

This time the game is 'Asura's Wrath', it says 'Chanllenges' on its back.



Well, apparently this one won't hit retail, but who knows, maybe you will be lucky and get one of these.

Well, another typo hits a game case. And it's another Capcom game: Asura's Wrath.

The game says 'Chanllenges' in its back. Well, the game is a PAL promotional copy, and apparently Capcom said this spelling mistake won't hit retail. But who knows, the game is launching very soon, so you could get lucky and maybe some of these appear in the final box version.

Picture from the new EDGE magazine seems to make it clear

No official word from Capcom, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Right? But still no monster love for the North America market.

GoNintendo reports of a picture they received from Tipster 'ibbseters' on Twitter, that shows an ad for Monster Hunter 3G with a catch phrase saying:

"Can other regions expect to trail this Japanese titan's path to success?"

And ends with under the heading "Release": 'Out Now (JP), Q3 2012 (EU), TBA (US)'

Capcom has not said anything on this subject, but a mag like EDGE would not waste printer ink to publish false information. :)

The link between NES Kid Icarus and 3DS Kid Icarus



This new adventure is linked to the old NES Kid Icarus adventure.

Nintendo is proud to show us a new Kid Icarus: Uprising trailer, in this video they try to show one of the links between the original Kid Icarus for the NES and the new Kid Icarus for 3DS.

In our NES adventure, Pit's mission was to find the three sacred treasures: the Mirror Shield, the Light Arrows, and the Wings of Pegasus, to save Palutena and defeat Medusa. It looks like Pit will have use for them again in the new Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Personally, I already played a demo of Kid Icarus: Uprising and didn't like too much the control of the game, I hope Nintendo improves it before the game launch.

Kid Icarus: Uprising will be released for Nintendo 3DS on March 23, check out the video below:...

Info on how you control your fighters have been posted recently



Team Ninja been demo'ing DOA5 recently in Europe, and now they have posted an image of the controller setup for the Xbox 360

With the image posted, you can see all the normal moves are there, along with 'Taunt', 'Power Blow', and easy Strong punch and kick buttons all using the side triggers / buttons on the Xbox 360 controller.

Also it seems you can bring up a full movelist anytime within the game itself, or extra overlay screen showing more players stats, and Team Ninja head producer, 'Yosuke Hatashi', promises the DOA5 will introduce a few changes to the original DOA series to make it more enjoyable and fresh to play again.

No information on how the fighting button layout will be like on the Playstation 3, when the game comes out later this year.
