Alien Chaos 3D Coming To Nintendo 3DS
Yesterday Reef Entertainment announced the European release of their first 3DS eShop title; Alien Chaos 3D. The game is a combination of shooting and cleaning across 5 chapters and 30 levels.
Really Shooter, the main character, runs a cleaning business and takes commando jobs on the side. When animal robot aliens invade Really must use a variety of weapons ranging from a Peashooter to an Explosive Flaming Chainsaw Shotgun to keep away the hordes of robo-boxing kangaroos, rocket spiked hedgehogs, shield carrying hippos and robo-frog fodder.
All the while Really has to sweep empty shells into recycling bins to make ammo whilst also cleaning walls to gain points and credit from Poor Mama. Amongst the chaos, players will experience 3D debris, sparks, smoke and flaming chainsaws popping out from the screen. Here are some first look screenshots of the forthcoming title:
High scores can be exchanged with friends and other players via the StreetPass feature for Nintendo 3DS. Alien Chaos 3D will be available to download in the summer this year.
Mega Man Robot Master Field Guide Blasts into Stores
Posted Thu, 19 Apr 2012 | 13:15 BST by Thomas Whitehead
A lot of pages like this
So many Robot Masters
The Mega Man series is loved by many not just because of its tight controls and blasting action, but possibly because it has such a diverse range of quirky characters and enemies. For those who follow every intricacy of the Mega Man universe, it's a big ask to keep up.
Thankfully for those fans, and others who just love playing the games, publisher UDON Entertainment has now released the Mega Man Robot Master Field Guide, a comprehensive tome that provides details on every Robot Master and character from the games. Check out the UDON preview page for more information and links to view six pages from the book. UDON Entertainment’s Managing Editor Matt Moylan has this to say about the book:
The Robot Master Field Guide turned out wonderfully, largely due to the hard work of the whole team of people that worked on it. The book is a great resource for the classic Mega Man universe and its characters. I’m also especially glad that we finally get to showcase the Mega Man 9 & 10 characters that were not yet around when the Mega Man Official Complete Works book was originally created.
It's already available in good comic book stores in North America, while online retailers will sell copies within the next few weeks. Do any of you have a copy, or intend to get one?

Beenox studio head Dee Brown took to Twitter a couple of nights ago to answer a bunch of fan questions about The Amazing Spider-Man. Brown commented on the title’s gameplay elements, upcoming trailer, and more.
8bitfix compiled a helpful summary of Brown’s messages, which you can find below.
- No voice actors have been confirmed yet. It remains to be seen if Andrew Garfield or Emma Stone will be lending their voices to the game.
- Gwen Stacey, Dr. Curt Connors, Rhino and Iguana are the only confirmed characters so far.
- Brown believes that this is the best-looking Spider-Man game to date.
- The game will feature several additional “skins”(alternate costumes), including some that have never been in a Spidey game before.
- Almost all scenes are rendered in-engine with motion capture.
- Webswinging will be “completely unique compared to past games, an incredible blend of speed and vertigo.”
- Spidey’s utility belt will be used to reload his webshooters. Thankfully, you’ll never find yourself running out of web cartridges as they are unlimited.
- The open world of Manhattan was designed with a “balance between realism and what’s best for gameplay.”
- “The Amazing Spider-Man has been developed to be an AWESOME game on its own, not a “movie game.” That’s why we’ve set the story after the movie.”
- There will be ‘photography missions’ where Spidey must use his Peter Parker skills to find clues in levels throughout Manhattan.
- The combat shares “similarity” with Batman: Arkham City but “adds a lot of unique stuff.”
- More classic Spidey villains will be announced in the near future. “The coolest thing is that we get to reinvent their origin with Marvel.”
- When the game is complete, you’re able to stay in Manhattan and finish side missions, and even select the time of day.
- In the game, the police and Spidey are working in concert, which is a direct contrast to the events of the film where Captain George Stacey seems intent on capturing the ‘masked vigilante.’
- A new trailer showing off the game’s “Web Rush” mechanic will be released soon.
- No Collector’s Edition has been announced yet.
- Custom soundtracks won’t be supported.

Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens has provided an update on downloadable content for Zen Pinball 3D and more. Sorens says that the DLC “will be definitely available this year.”
According to Sorens:
“Yes, definitely. We’re just waiting for the right time to add the support for add-on content for Zen Pinball. It will be definitely available this year. We’re going to have new tables for Zen Pinball, we’ll also release Marvel Pinball [for the 3DS, PS Vita and PC] and we’ll have add-on tables for that as well down the road.”
Sorens has also been asked about any interest the studio may have in making a Nintendo-based pinball table. While this is something they would be open to pursuing, the Big N’s protective nature of their IPs probably means that making something based on Mario or Zelda wouldn’t be possible for now.
“Yes, definitely. We’d love to make Mario, Zelda or Pokémon pinball tables. Nintendo is obviously very protective of their Intellectual Properties, so we hoping that once our games become established on their platforms they’ll see us as a good potential partner and they’ll want to work with us.”
Zen Studios is currently working on a non-pinball title, and it’s in development for the 3DS. Don’t expect an announcement during E3, though, as the company doesn’t want their news to be overshadowed by the amount of reveals that will be coming out of the show.
“We’re already working on some other games besides pinball that we will be announcing a little bit later. One of them will be coming to the 3DS, one won’t (at least not initially). We’re very excited, we’ll announce them… Sometime this year, I can’t say more than that!
“We don’t actually announce that much stuff at E3 just because there’s such a number of announcements from other guys that we wouldn’t be getting any kind of attention. We’ll make our announcements when anyone else is making announcements *laughs*.”
And as far as Zen Studios’ interest in the Wii U controller is concerned…
“Well, the new Wii U controller is… very good for pinball, actually. I can’t talk you much more than that right now but yeah, I agree that it would be pretty cool for pinball *laughs*.”
