Nintendo Classic ‘Duck Hunt’ Rebooted in VR

Nintendo Classic ‘Duck Hunt’ Rebooted in VR

By Tyler Koslow

One of the most iconic and popular video games of all time, Nintendo’s 1984 NES title Duck Hunt, might be a bit outdated, but who is to say that the classics can’t be reborn with a little help from emerging 3D technology? After attending this year’s Global Game Jam event, one 21-year-old developer from New Jersey named Joesph Delgado became inspired to take Duck Hunt, now over 30-years-old by the way, and reformat it for Virtual Reality.

I’m sure there were a lot of elements of both VR and Duck Hunt for Delgado to consider, implementing the classic Nintendo gun controller, tracking hand motions and ducks, and just making the VR experience as enjoyable as possible, for instance.…

Hackers are sad because video games are too hard to crack

“In two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”

Let the crocodile tears flow. Hackers that are in the business of cracking the copy protection on video games are concerned about the future of their illegal activities. Increasingly advanced piracy protections are making it too much of a hassle to commit theft.

The above quote comes from Bird Sister, founder of the Chinese cracking group 3DM. She spoke about the future of game cracking as she sees it in a recent post on her personal blog that addressed the troubles 3DM has run into as it’s tried — unsuccessfully — to crack Just Cause 3. Read more…

Oculus pre-order date could get Rift in our hands in '2-4 weeks'

Oculus pre-order date could get Rift in our hands in ‘2-4 weeks’

Oculus VR’s trumpeting of the Oculus Rift’s upcoming pre-order date seems a little premature for excitement, but it could mean virtual reality fans have headsets in hand in less than a month.

While this may seem speculative, it’s based on a discussion with Oculus Vice President of Product Nate Mitchell that came during the company’s last developer-focused conference, held in Los Angeles in September. I asked Mitchell why, with a captive audience of VR’s earliest adopters at the ready, Oculus had not yet announced a pre-order date or price for the final Rift Consumer headset, which had been making the rounds since June Read more…

You can reserve your very own Oculus Rift headset starting on Jan. 6 when pre-orders go live.

The pre-order process opens at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m ET, and Oculus VR promises to share “everything you need to know to order your Rift” on that day. “Everything” presumably includes the head-mounted display’s price, which remains a no-show for now.

Previous Oculus developer kit pricing hovered in the $300-400 range, though it was non-final tech that didn’t include the now-built-in headphones and other assorted improvements introduced with/since the “Crescent Bay” prototype debuted at Oculus Connect 2014. Read more…

The holiday rush is over, which means most fans of video games have settled into a time of long, wintry hibernation when we catch up on everything we missed.

Eff that. There’s a whole new year of video games to look forward to. Some stuff we haven’t seen, and won’t see for many months, but we know they’ll be big. Looking at you, Call of DutyDestiny and Madden. Others we’ve seen a lot of and have talked about at length (see also: Street Fighter V).

That’s not what we’re about right now. Everything listed below is almost certain to be coming out in 2016, and the anticipation for each and every one has us perched on the edge of our seats. Even with a mountain of killer games to get through from the current year — 2015 kicked all sorts of ass — it’s never too early to get hype for what’s next. Read more…
