Face Raiders!! It comes pre-installed with the Nintendo 3DS. An intro level game that helps you get familiar with the new technology. It uses the environment around you as the in background setting of the game. So don’t try playing this on the toilet!

The face doesn’t have to be human. In fact I only have two human faces collected so far. My dog (Jack Daniels) and a variety of objects have become the focus for me. My Goomba becomes my new target:

The simple pleasures of gaming are what this game is all about. Aim and shoot! Now with 3D technology, your pivoting your body and turning around in place to kill the hoard of faces! Here’s just two:

Blasting faces has a certain entertainment value that I love. The interaction isn’t limited to just gameplay. The option to view the expressions of each face is available. Check out the option:

So many faces, so little time. I’ve also noticed that everytime I play, I open up another opening sequence video with all of the faces I’ve collected. Check out a few that I’ve opened up:

I’d like to think of the NES as the best system ever because of all that it has given to us during its lifetime and the new life that has been blown into it today. With the said, what if a few of the classics arrived a little earlier than expected? Would we have more of that game or would it have made it in the market at all? Click on the pic and read what I thought about a few games I picked.
