Bits and Pieces

A 3-D touch controller, called the Falcon, glorified on Pop-Sci pages grabs attention. Developed to go a step beyond today's console controllers (with force feedback), the device boasts of software that could calculate the force and direction at the tip of the stylus a whopping 1000 times per second (in comparison, dual-shock controllers use output from potentiometers). Not just for gaming, " we called this the Falcon, because the falcon is a predator to the mouse" [CEO talk].

Looks interesting. Nintendo is aiming to revolutionize gaming with its next gen console. Claims that gaming has reached the zenith of graphics and realism that gameplay needs to change from being the controller driven one, it is today. Waiting.

Is this the nintendogs that you mentioned? Terrific stuff. Havent seen that before.

Apparently, N Revolution is not to be revealed during this year's E3.

It is. The game for the DS is available only in Japan currently. Expected stateside in May. I cant imagine the intelligence and creativity involved in getting such a game to the market. Comes in three flavors, each with 5 dogs that you can train and teach and then compete wirelessly with other Nintendogs taught by their respective dog owners.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
