Could it be? A Seaman for the 3DS?

Seaman 3dsWell, according to this post the incredibly quirky Dreamcast born Seaman might just make it to Nintendo's 3DS. This means you can have a talking, python-esque fish with a man's head ignore you in full 3D and on the go. Could be really great methinks. Find out more about the original DC Seaman here.

Meet the GPH Caanoo

gamepark caanoocaanoo gphGPH should stop releasing new handhelds every second year and start supporting its rich line of existing ones a bit better. No, really, I mean it, despite being perfectly happy with my WiZ. Anyway. What you see above are pics of the soon-to-be released Caanoo handheld. You can preorder one and find out (a bit) more here.

The quite amazing Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo 3DSIt's been less than 24 hours since Nintendo unveiled its promised 3D handheld and, judging from what we've seen, this could easily be the company's best handheld yet. The 3DS, you see, is backward compatible with the DS and DSi, sports PS2 level graphics, an allegedly jaw dropping 3D display, carts than can hold up to 2GB of data, dual screens, wi-fi, a 3D camera, an second inner camera, an analog stick, a few extra buttons, the now-traditional touch-controls and some interesting sounding motion sensors. Feature-packed, I'm sure you'll agree, and it looks good and highly portable too. 

What's more, the number and -probably- quality of promised first and third party games is more than impressive, ranging from the already shown Kid Icarus: Uprising to Street Fighter IV. Other titles announced include: Metal Gear 3DS, Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart, Paper Mario, Pilotwings, Star Fox, Fifa Soccer, Ninja Gaiden, DJ Hero, Resident Evil, Sonic, Contra, Assassin's Creed, The Sims 3, Animal Crossing, Professor Layton, Pro Evolution Soccer, Bomberman and many more, as apparently everyone seems to be supporting the thing.

FreeHeroes2 for the WiZ

Heroes of Might & Magic is, and always will be, my absolute favorite turn-based, fantasy, strategy game. FreeHeroesII, an excellent freeware remake of the game (actually, it's a port of the HoMM II engine), is, and will most probably always be, the best way to enjoy classic HoMM gameplay on the go. And on the Wiz. Get it here.
