    Nintendo’s 3DS eShop is going to be a little late

    Okay, turns out that “late May” isn’t actually the best estimate for the eShop’s arrival on Nintendo’s 3DS handheld. Nintendo revealed yesterday that the next Nintendo 3DS update, which will feature the digital download service as well as a web browser, will actually hit devices “the evening of June 6 Pacific time.” Those two services aren’t the only features of the update — the web browser and store will be accompanied by other “new features and enhancements.” What are you most excited to download from the eShop? If I had a 3DS, I’d definitely be hitting up the old-school stuff, since we already have quite a few of those games on our Wii.

    Namco Bandai announces ‘Soulcalibur V’ for 2012 release

    One of my favorite fighters is getting another game in 2012. Namco Bandai recently announced Soulcalibur V for PS3 and Xbox 360, and based on a teaser trailer, two favorite characters are already making a comeback. (There are bound to be more, of course.) You can watch this teaser trailer below (and get your fill of Siegfried). If you still want more, check out the official website. Right now they’ve got a “like on Facebook to reveal this image!” thing going on, which is kind of silly, but…whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    IO Interactive both reveals and teases ‘Hitman Absolution’

    On Tuesday, IO Interactive confirmed that they are working on the latest Hitman title for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Hitman Absolution. “For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director at IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world.” In this title, Agent 47 is betrayed by colleagues and eventually hunted by the police as part of a conspiracy. IO/Square Enix also released a teaser trailer for the game, seen below. For more, visit www.Hitman.com.

    Featured Facebook Game of the Week – Feevo

    This week’s Featured Facebook game is a fresh face for the fans of match-3 type games. In Feevo, players swap pieces to match bundles of four or more in a move-controlled rather than time-controlled setting. That means that, instead of making as many moves and scoring as many points as possible in one minute, it’s okay to take time, strategize, and maximize points per move in order to move up the level ladder and continue playing. I like the fact that this concept changes the approach to the game and slows things down in our lightning fast world. Don’t get me wrong, I am as blitzed out and love the speed challenge as much if not more than the next guy, Feevo just rounds out my mental game quite nicely. The music in Feevo also has quite the calming effect. It reminds me of something one might hear at a
