Inspected Gadget: Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS will be out sometime soon, and while we’re starting to see the start of 3D hitting our home a/v worlds, this device is of most interest because it uses a stereoscopic display to send the correct perspective images to your left and right eyes. Short version? It doesn’t require 3D glasses. 3D depth adjustment is controllable to adjust for your eyes – and there is a double lens camera on the device so that you can take photos that take advantage of the effect. Has all the usual DS features like wifi, backwards compatibility, and free online gaming access, but the processor has supposedly been upgraded.

Another nice touch: first game title it comes with is a new episode in the Kid Icarus series: “Uprising.” I lost weeks playing the original.

Kotaku has a nice guide to Nintendo’s latest portable.

Inspected Gadget: Red Dead Redemption + Short Film

Ahh, Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games. Doesn’t even do it justice to say it’s Grand Theft Auto set in the wild west. A worthwhile investment. If you need to be convinced further or are already playing, check out this trailer for a short film making its debut Saturday night (May 29) at midnight ET/PT on FOX. Directed by John Hillcoat (Yes – the same guy who did The Road and The Proposition), entirely using the game’s graphic rendering engine as his camera.

As usual, Rockstar has a funny glitch or two in their games… check out the incredible donkey lady after the jump.

Inspected Gadget: Sony announces “Playstation Move”

We’ve seen the Xbox Natal system use a camera and general hand gestures and set a vague date of “Holiday 2010″ – and now Sony is not going to stand by and let Microsoft be the only competitor trying to get to the top of the heap in gesture-based gaming.  The Sony Playstation Move seems to be a direct copy of the Wii’s control system but has an slightly tighter date of “Fall 2010.” The controller also looks, uhh, interesting.

At this point, isn’t it safe to say this a lack of innovation on the part Sony and Xbox? Or is this acceptance by the bean counters that Nintendo was on to something?

Worship with the Gaming Masses

Sit back and watch the latest in gaming news, Inside Gaming, hosted by Dead Pixel. It’s got a good review of Assassin’s Creed 2 – the tidbits about controlling yourself as a baby just after being born and conversations with your mom about vaginas in the presence of Leonardo da Vinci sound kinda crazy. Then there’s Left 4 Dead 2, hot on the trails of the first gory version, so it suffers a bit for being more of the same but sounds like it manages to introduce some new enemies, new weapons, and new locations.
