Chase Mii Hands On Preview

Hide-and-seek. With Miis.

Chase Mii is another Mii crossover demo, this time with Miis in Mario and Toad suits in a hide-and-seek minigame.

The player with the Wii U controller plays as Mario who is given a head start to run off into a Mario Kart battle mode-style arena, then up to four other players with NES-style Wii remotes run around as Toad Miis and try to dive for him like a rabbit before the timer runs out. A star occasionally appears in the center of the arena, but it's otherwise a simple demo.

On the television, each Toad can see how many yards away they are from Mario, and there was a lot of shouting and communication between Toads to hunt him down. Toads can dive with 2, and I'm pretty sure Mario can only be moved via the circle pad. Controls are limited, and like Battle Mii, running is pretty slow for the size of the arena.

The Wii U controller has a large map of the area and a smaller, much more zoomed top-down viewing area to see Mario, of course to limit the view of his surroundings. Seems like kind of a waste for such shiny new technology, but at least it was fun.

"Keep"ing the Identity of Dragon Age Intact

The Dragon Age series has something of an identity crisis, due in large part to its disjointed development history. Even though Dragon Age: Origins came out a couple of years after the first Mass Effect, it was actually announced way back in 2004 as a PC exclusive. The roots of Origins could be found in BioWare’s classic Baldur’s Gate series, and the design sensibilities of the game were far removed from the company’s more recent action/RPGs like Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Dragon Age 2 was clearly very influenced by the success of Mass Effect 2, and the input of now BioWare parent company EA was easy to see. While Dragon Age 2 alienated some fans of Origins it also created a new set of people invested in the world of Thedas. Now we have a third entry in the series that has the difficult task of keeping old players invested while trying once again to do a “soft reboot” of the franchise. How does BioWare hope to craft a new adventure but still make players feel like they made their mark on the world? Enter the Dragon Age Keep.
