Infendo Radio answers your burning questions


Derek and I argue over how crucial 3D is to 3DS gameplay, discuss depth sliders, answer 10 delicious listener questions, talk where do buy cheap second-hand games, e-shop expectations, Nintendo gimmicks (good and bad), Apple getting into gaming, and the phycological endowment effect of all things. We also debate whether Nintendo rushed 3DS so as not to step on Project Cafe’s toes. Get ready, folks: This is the definitive reader’s choice episode.

  1. Other great games for the GameCube.

    Lego Starwars the original trilology
    Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3
    Time Splitters 2 and 3
    Star Wars Rogue Leader Rogue Squadron 2
    Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix
    Doshin The Giant
    Soul Calibur 2
    Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes
    SSX 3
    Super Monkey Ball
    Viewtiful Joe
    Beyond Good and Evil

    Ehhh there are more i think, but hey… Mutch is 3rd party what’s up with no 3rd party support…

  2. about this revelation email……if the rumors are true about this touch screen controller, i think its more inspired by the DS gameplay mechanics than a response to apple iDevices. of course, these are all rumors, so until E3, its kind of hard to make any conclusions or assumptions. the other thing is also, i’d be very surprised if this device as described did not come with a stylus. if we’re talking a precision control device, a stylus is a must.

    also, i think it is safe to assume, based on iOS game development support, that a redesigned apple tv will indeed become the 4th major home console in the market in the not too distant future.

  3. the reason they released 3ds early this year is that they had to do something as ds has been taking a beating in japan by psp for over a year now. it’s funny because now 3ds is getting beaten by psp on a regular basis over there.

    similarly, ps3 has been dominating wii for over a year now in japan as well….and here we are hearing about cafe. but wii sales have slowed globally too.

  4. gave up on you guys huh?

  5. Where to get some old games:
    If you’re coming over to Southern California to E3, try to find Game Dude (in North Hollywood).
    They’re an entire warehouse of games and sell a lot of great classics!
    They’re THE PLACE TO GO for us SoCal locals.
