Trine 2 Hands On Preview

It's not the Lost Vikings exactly, but it's close enough that you should be excited.

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- very much like The Lost Vikings

- 3 characters, each with unique abilities

- 1 is a wizard who can create objects, platforms, etc. Physics based

- 1 is a thief with a grappling hook and a bow and arrow. Can grapple to anything wooden. Can swing across gaps

- 1 is a knight. Can you shield to manipulate things falling down. Can fight stuff, less puzzle-like than Lost Vikings, but still includes puzzles. Can brute force through certain areas instead of puzzle solve

- Can seamlessly switch between all three in single player, only 1 on the screen at a time in SP

- Impressive puzzle that started with water dripping down and log. Players had to manipulat the log to make the water drop onto a plant to bloom a flower. Once all four bloomed, you can progress onward.

- Online and offline co-op

- local is drop in/drop out - online may also have the same but not confirmed at this time

- wizard took control of an enemy to attack things, but otherwise he has no attack powers

- all players can gain new skills by picking up vials, but what skills it wasn't obvious what skills in particular there would be.

I enjoyed Trine a lot more than I thought I would when I got it in the Humble Frozen bundle. I hope this version comes out for Linux as well.

The Nintendo Switch Chicago Preview Event

On Friday, February 17th, I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago and check out Nintendo’s upcoming new system—The Switch, as well as fifteen different titles releasing within the Switch’s first year. As a longtime fan of video games, I’d read about events like E3 and press preview events and dream about going to one of these one day. Since I’m not involved in games journalism and live in the Midwest, I never imagined I’d have a chance to attend a preview event. The only time I went to something of this level was Nintendo’s E3 Best Buy event in 2013, where I spent three hours in line so I could play one Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze level. When Nintendo emailed me an invitation to preview the Switch, I immediately snagged two tickets. When I left for the event with my friend Marcus, I expected something similar to that Best Buy preview.
