how were the graphics?

3DS vs. PSP, PS2 and GameCube

Most of the chatter we hear about the 3DS is the autostereoscopic 3D screens, but there’s also a huge advancement in it’s graphical capabilities. Although the important part of having good graphics is the talent of the artists that make them, I think this can provide a good idea of what can be achieved on the 3DS from a technical standpoint. It’s also worth noting that the Snake ...

High-res Skyward Sword screenshots and artwork galore

Skyward Sword’s art style is remarkable, and somewhat resembles 19th century impressionist art. Zelda Universe has collected a myriad of official screenshots, all at a extremely high resolution for your eyes to marvel at. via Zelda Universe

Skyward Sword trailer is full of bright, vivid colors

It goes without saying that not everyone will be as pleased with the art style of the new Zelda game as I am, but you cannot deny that it looks extremely unique. The important thing is, it looks like tons of fun!

The era of HD Gaming is a myth. Or, why there is definitely no Wii HD coming soon

HD gaming, at least as it has been applied to this current generation of consoles by feverish marketing departments who overshot their markets by a mile, is a myth. Always has been. As such, there is almost certainly no Wii HD console coming out anytime soon. Can I be an analyst now?

I’ve got your Wii ‘graphical wonder’ right here

Wherein I address one of Infendo’s senior commenters in the post headline– a first! Anyway, we’ve been talking about graphics and shovelware here at Infendo lately (both staffers and commenters, because you’re awesome), and these new screens from the upcoming Boy and His Blob update are pretty remarkable. “Graphical wonders” even, in a hat tip to one of our regu...

Dead Rising’s Isabella really loves Ben & Jerry’s ice cream

It’s the only way I can explain why she has multiple chins in the Wii version, coming soon, and not in the Xbox 360 version, which has been out for more than a two years. Sure, the Wii’s graphics aren’t going to be as sharp, and the number of zombies on screen is pitifully less than the Xbox 360 version, but since when has a weaker processor translated into multiple chins?! And t...

Review: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows [Wii][DS]

Like Treyarch’s other webhead games, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is entirely free-roaming. The island of Manhattan is open for your web-slinging, wall-running pleasure, and it looks fantastic. The graphics are a huge step up from Spider-Man 3 for Wii, the city looks bigger, the animation is smoother, and the character models look more realistic. It also represents a change in how developers s...

Infendo Hands-On – Dead Rising: Cream of the Flop

I’m a big fan of zombie mayhem, and with the Xbox 360 hovering just above my price range, I’ve been eagerly awaiting Dead Rising: Chop ‘till you Drop. Screenshots of the Wii version have been heavily criticized for having bad graphics, and not being able to simulate zombie hordes of the same size as its 360 predecessor. I’m sorry to say that despite some valiant efforts, the “Trial Versi...

Is this new generation of gamers killing what we built?

Are we a dying breed of original gamers? This question is always brought to my mind more often when I walk into a game retailer packed full with youngsters eyeing video games tucked away in hand-smudged, glass cases. One of my most unsettling confrontations with this new generation happened just recently. As I stood in line to place a preorder on Guitar Hero World Tour, I overheard a young man (ag...

Guest Column: “Is Casual Killing the Core?” PAX panel

Infendo was lucky enough this morning to hear from a reader who attended PAX last weekend, and his on-the-scene reporting is pretty timely, given the gaming landscape today. “El Hajjish” attended the “Is Casual Gaming Killing Core Gaming?” panel, which featured Start Trek actor and uber geek Wil Wheaton, no less. If anyone can guess how the panel progressed before you read ...

Commonplace criticisms of Wii, Nintendo begin to fade

Remember that damning New York Times piece about Wii, low attach rates and how the system is anathema to “hardcore gamers?” It’s been pretty much summarily attacked all week long as an example of poor reporting (believe me, I can relate), but this article from Ars Technica–and a response from VGChartz, from which the NYT compiled its data–pretty much smothered the art...

Ace Combat devs make good on Wii graphics

According to N4G (sourcing Japanese site Famitsu), the above is one of several initial screenshots for the upcoming Wii exclusive game, Sky Crawlers, from the makers of Ace Combat. Looking good, boys (for a cut scene). Who’s got next? Factor?
