Yup, the first unboxing video of one of the very first (and very limited) New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Editions!

Since this is my first unboxing video I’d like to ask you to cut me some slack during the video ;)

The New Nintendo 3DS will require a MicroSD SHDC memory card (see here for more information), so you may need to purchase a new card if you haven’t got one yet.

From Software, the makers of the Souls games, has revealed new gameplay footage from its highly anticipated PS4 Sgame Bloodborne at this weekend’s The Game Awards.

The new footage focuses heavily on the multiplayer component, which appears to be showing three-player co-op!

Plus, we also get to see a makeshift flamethrower made from a modified lantern in action!

Anyway, without much further ado: here is the footage:

How to change your amiibo's colour palette - whatwasithinking.co.uk

Now, the amiibo’s just arrived, and you’re likely going to use them for Super Smash Bros right away! As you know, when you first connect your amiibo, you’ll be asked to enter a name and choose a colour palette. But can you change it after you made your selection?

You can, by following these simple steps:

  1. Go to Games & More and select amiibo
  2. Scan scan the amiibo you want to change
  3. Once scanned, press Y
  4. Keep the owner (if you want to, otherwise change it here) and choose the colour palette / appearance
  5. Done

Have fun! :)

Probably THE best Diablo 3 clone? Lost Ark is a Korean-made action-RPG that looks a lot like Blizzard’s Diablo 3, just…. nicer!

 

Developed by Tripod Studio, the game surely does look amazing, though at the moment it doesn’t look like there will be a Western release.  For more information, visit Lost Ark’s website

So I’ve been playing around with Assassin’s Creed Unity using ShadowPlay (nVidia’s recording software), playing around with graphics qualities, anti-aliasing etc, and to be brutally honest, it still looks awful.

If you look at the video in full-screen / 1080p/60fps (you’ll need Chrome for that to see it properly) you’ll see what I mean…. crowds, buildings in the distance, even the character himself look washed out, blurry, low-res even.

I’ll need to spend a few hours in the settings and fixing up some config files I guess before I actually enjoy playing it :(

Just me playing around with Asassin’s Creed Unity on the PC.

About the game:

Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin…

Part 1 of my gameplay:

And Part 2:

Did you spot the glitches? ;)
