New Games for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS News: Also on tap are Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Wipeout and Record of Agarest War Zero.
E3 2011 has come and gone, but videogame releases on PCs, consoles and handhelds remains a constant. This week, the industry is all about old franchises being reworked for newer systems and fresh audiences that have yet to experience Zelda 64, Duke Nukem or American MaGee's version of Alice.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, often referred to as Zelda 64, stands as the highest-scoring game of all time among critics on GameRankings.com. More than a decade later, this 3DS remake adds a new dimension (literally) to Link's epic quest to save his princess. It also brings that journey to gamers in portable form for the first time. With new Boss Challenge and Master Quest modes, there's more than enough reason to take on Gannon in what has to be the first must-own game for Nintendo's 3DS handheld.
Current Price: $39.99 on Nintendo 3DS
Duke Nukem Forever
Before Zelda: Ocarina of Time even came out on the N64, Duke Nukem Forever was supposed to come for the PC to follow up 3D Realms' successful Duke Nukem 3D. All sorts of chaos and controversy sent the game into development hell for 14 years, only to release this week. In addition to buying a game that features everyone's favorite FPS badass, you also get to own a little piece of history on the Xbox 360, PS3 or PC... finally.
Current Price: $49.99 on PC, $59.99 on Xbox 360, $59.99 on PS3
$89.99 - $99.99 for the Collector's Edition
Alice: Madness Returns
The sequel to 2000's PC hit American McGee's Alice is back in the aptly-named Alice: Madness Returns. This second dose of
"drink me" "play me" expands Alice's adventure onto consoles (in addition to the PC) for the first time, bringing the action-adventure series to a whole new set and fresh generation of gamers.
Current Price: $46.99 on PC, $59.99 on Xbox 360, $59.99 on PS3
