The Station Wagon of DualShock 4 Controllers

January 1st, 2014 by

I am a sucker for custom controllers, and this one gets my motor going. Created by redditor KrazeeDD using a water transfer printing kit, this DS4 controller has a certain panache, much like the faux-wooden automobiles of my childhood.

Please tell me you aren’t too young to remember those:

I feel old enough as it is.

Games of The Year 2013

January 1st, 2014 by

2013 was a big year in gaming, for all platforms, and we here at Delta Attack will be sad to see it go as it rides off into the sunset. It wasn’t easy, but we managed to cull our list of favorites down to a scant few. Here are our picks for 2013 GOTY:

Review: Fighting Fantasy: Blood of the Zombies (iOS)

December 30th, 2013 by

fighting fantasy blood of the zombies
The Fighting Fantasy book series — an upgrade of the Choose Your Own Adventure formula — hits iOS, but how does it translate to an app? With full-fledged RPGs and other complex game types available on mobile, is an interactive book worthwhile?

Review: NES Remix (Wii U)

nes remix review
At face value, NES Remix looks like it can do no wrong: It blends a handsome bunch of classic NES games together, serving them up in small portions under a nifty time-trial umbrella. Spend a few hours with it, though, and you’ll see soon enough that it packs more nostalgia than it does punch.

Earthbound’s Onett In Mind-Melting HD

“This took me about a year to make” says Christopher Behr, 3D designer extraordinaire. Looks like a year well spent.

Chris took the first town in Earthbound, Onett, and rendered it in such painstaking high-fidelity that I’m freaking out right now at it’s sheer awesomeness. Somebody calm me down before I hurt myself – or just come take a look-see at these pictures and freak out with me.

Capcom gets artsy with Street Fighter prints

Go home and be a family man!

Do you like Street Fighter? Do you like art? Do you like Street Fighter art? Well, get ready for a highbrow Hadouken.

In recognition of 25 years of Street Fighter, Capcom is teaming up with Cook & Becker to release “limited-edition museum-grade Street Fighter ™ art prints” for the masses. You’ve seen the images in magazines, strategy guides, and instruction booklets. Now, let’s hang them on the walls!

Snarkiness aside, this is a beautiful collection that a very select few enthusiasts are going to get their grubby mitts on. I’ve got my eye on the pictured Guile & Chun-Li piece, and not just because of the gratuitous panties. Honestly, it’s just an excuse to play Guile’s theme as the soundtrack to my life. I don’t know if you know this or not, but it pretty much goes with everything.

Notably missing is concept art from Street Fighter 2010. Why no love for cyborg Ken, Capcom?

These pieces are rather pricey, but they’re also very beautiful. If you’ve got the cash and the gumption, then head over to the Cook & Becker webpage for more details.

Full press release and a few more print examples after the jump.

Tomb Raider lands in the App Store

Proving that Final Fantasy isn’t the only franchise they’re willing to bleed dry for nostalgic gamers in the mobile space, Square Enix has released “Tomb Raider I” into the Apple App Store.

Wonky cameras, shoddy jumping, and square boobs can all be yours for ninety-nine cents. That’s a surprisingly small price to pay for a trip down memory lane, isn’t it?

While Tomb Raider didn’t necessarily require a lot of precision, having been released on the original Playstation back in 1996 before the advent of the Dual Shock, touch controls are touch controls. That control overlay in the screen above is the kind of thing I see in my nerdiest nightmares. So, enter at your own peril, adventurers.

No word on what version of Tomb Raider is featured, but you’ve got to imagine it’s the original with the Tomb Raider Gold levels to be released as DLC some time down the road. This is Square Enix we’re talking about here.

With over 7 million sales of the original game, tons of people are about to donate a dollar towards nostalgia before remembering just how far 3D platform adventure games have come in the past 17 years. To them, I say, “Kudos!”

Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS)

link between worlds review
Nintendo’s newest Zelda game has more in common with one of its oldest, taking place in a near-identical Hyrule to that of the beloved fan favorite A Link to The Past. Clearly a bid on Nintendo’s part to cash in on yesteryear’s magic – is A Link Between Worlds more than a simple trip down memory lane?
