Rock of Ages Hands On Preview

As a Katamari fan, I couldn't have been more excited to play this one.

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

- Ball rolling

- Harder to control than Katamari, only 1 stick for navigation

- You are Sysyphus and you are being tormented by Hades

- The game is not about getting to the end of the stage as you'd think

- It's more of a strategy, tower defense style game.

- More damage taken will weaken the boulder, as such, you want to avoid hitting enemy towers if possible to hit the enemy's gate with full power, rather than a crumbled boulder.

- Able to switch to skyview in order to see the whole world

- Game world has an underlying grid that lets you build towers

- With the two mechanics, you need to use excessive strategy to beat levels. Where you lay towers and how you control the boulder are both important to success

Duck Hunt Review Rewind

Duck Hunt is an interesting relic of times past and one that I have conflicting feelings about.  While it was my earliest NES memory and no doubt fun from what I can remember, it also hasn't aged quite as well as I would have hoped.  But sometimes, that's just how it goes with the games we played as children.  I suppose the biggest letdown is realizing that the game simply isn't as stimulating to me as it once was, mostly due to its limited nature.  At its core, you're just shooting the same objects round after round until you fail to reach the required quota.  Be that as it may, Duck Hunt's importance in Nintendo's history cannot be overlooked.
