3DS’ Parental Controls Include 3D Slider Lock

December 30th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

The last few Nintendo systems have had some sort of parental control options to prevent games with certain ESRB ratings from being played and access to internet content, but the 3DS will add one more option: to turn off 3D effects.

The reason for this is because looking at 3D images may be harmful to children under the age of six.

With the lock turned on, the image will only be displayed in regular 2D, regardless of the slider’s position.

Could This Tiny Image Confirm the Inevitable Dragon Quest X?

December 30th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

No, of course it couldn’t. It would be pretty foolish to consider a small, cropped image a confirmation of a new Dragon Quest game.

However, it is enough to get people wondering about the follow up to Sentinels of the Starry Sky. Supposedly, this image is from the latest issue of JUMP magazine. If so, then a larger full-page scan should hit the web in the near future.

December 28th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

After more than 24 years, an early build of the original Legend of Zelda has been found and is available to the public. Well, if you have the necessary means with which to play it, that is.

One thing becomes instantly apparent when you start making your way through the game’s dungeons: It’s pretty darn easy. Apparently, for the final version of the game, Nintendo decided to crank up the difficulty by making enemies stronger and adding more of them to rooms.

A list of all the known changes in the prototype are available at The Cutting Room Floor. If you want to play the game yourself, the necessary Famicom disk files can be downloaded here.
