Paid tribute to some of the featured artists in my Animal Crossing home

Obsessed with Wipeout, not played it for almost 20 years.  

The creator of the "Konami code" has passed away ?

Oh no - like I say it's nintendo and they know build quality - just when they slid off the handles my brain remembered the cheap plastic when I tried out the ouyabastard

tbh I don't have a ton of experience with current gen controllers, or anything modern from Nintendo besides 3DS. But I do know that it's near impossible for me to play 3DS games, my left thumb starts aching after about 15 minutes...

Looks like the Nvidia shield tablet + clever controllers. Seems Nintendo is always one generation behind on the graphics, not that graphics are that important, but still... I don't know. I want to like it. It's ok I guess.

i think cos they understand making a small computer that goes in the living room = direct competition with PS4/XBOX/PC. 

if you want a a PS4, or an XBOX, or a PC.. get a PS4, XBOX, or PC. 

 

nintendo target the more widespread casual audience. that means keeping price low and affordable. 

they also want their systems to be 'fun', and obviously not focusing on high spec graphics ( ie. making the systems unaffordable ) means they have to go some other route in making the systems unique, interesting and fun. 

 

it's not always the most agreeable tactic. but its what they do.

hehe. 

i watched this recently ( and a bit of this (2nd vid) ) and holy shit that bastard mess was a complete MESS.

i can't even imagine how it'd feel to be a major backer of the Ouya. what a piece of shit that was

 

i was hoping the NX/Switch was going to be a dedicated home console rather than a hybrid home/handheld, but that video put me at ease as it looks like a full home console, just with added portability. it takes the idea of off-TV play from the Wii U and improved on it massively (which is already a great idea and something i use a lot).

 

i wouldn't worry about having to use the tablet controller, the regular controller got plenty of screen time in the trailer so i'm hoping/thinking it'll be included with the console.

Besides Zelda, Super Mario, and Mario Kart, Im curious to see how Switch handles Pikmin, and finally being able to play a main Pokemon game at home?

I don't know. I fully support their concept here. Interested to see how it pans out.

 

Pisses me off to no end that 99% the games I bought on PS3 and PS4 on the PSN aren't crossplay with my vita. I already paid for the goddamn content, and you want me to pay again to use it on a different Sony branded console I also paid for?

 

Ripoff.

but how will i super mario make !!! :^( 

 

the whole split screen system i don't think worked very well for the Wii u in any real practical sense. take Legend of zelda, which i think was a pretty good application of the touch screen, using the wii u gamepad to manage inventory. but even then, the constant action of looking at the tv screen + looking down at the gamepad does nothing but put a strain on your neck + split your attention across two screens ??? it's a nice idea and i do wish more games explored the open playing field a bit better ... but nothing really ever did anything that benefited from the split screen layout.

the vita was a massive disappointment. the initia release promising triple AAA experiences with wipeout + uncharted + killzone etc. and just doing absolutely NOTHING to expand on that idea. i still enjoyed the system (primarily for the odd indie games that came out), but its clear that sony lost all interest in that thing when the userbase wasn't what they were expecting.  **OH FUCK THIS THING SUCKS, KILL IT WITH FIREEE****

Yeah, huge disappointment. I think the vita itself was a quality system, good quality screen, feels good in my hands, buttons etc are the right distance apart.

 

But the titles released were largely a huge flop. I think I could probably live with it if all the ps1/ps2 etc classics I bought on PSN worked on the vita? At least I'd have that.

If it has a HDMI port, would make it pretty nice to carry a cable + plug into whatever monitor / tele is available.

 

But I am curious / interested, might buy day one purely for old times sake (the only console I've ever bought day one was the Wii and that was because it was cheap. Ah, nostalgia...)

 

 

omg. 

given that wii u didn't sell super well and userbase was made up of either BIG NINTENDO FANS, or simple people choosing to believe in the wii u and invest in it, expecting people to rebuy the wii u games is going to be a massive FUCK YOU to the nintendo fanbase lololol

 

Nintendo make you rebuy their games yearly, how is this any different? lol

I can see an extended battery pack for sale, like the Wii U, even a 3rd party external pack would make plane trips doable. Man, thinking of playing shit like Pikmin 3, or wireless Splatoon multiplayer would kick ass. They could promote it as a social platform, link to a fellow traveler, or have meet ups for multiplayer. I'm sure it will have very novel mobile capabilities, they said it could exploit tablet or mobile phone tech, and the NFC possibilities are endless. Being a frequent traveler, I feel like the target market for this console. And the Virtual Console...damn, playing Rogue Leader, or Animal Crossing, Mario Maker on the go in near HD or maybe full HD if they can swing it. Maybe it can come with a few Amiibo cards for built in apps and show what is possible with those. Do we think it has a camera? I can even see buying an extra dock, and maybe keeping it at my Mom's house for when I visit, and my nephew and brother could bring their unit for the same. If the dock is the cheaper part of the bundle, that could be marketed as a possibility.

 

Here's a pic from GoNintendo, I'm thinking the NFC scanner is right in the middle of the pad.

what ? hey !! 

the trailer pretty specifically shows gamecube; yoshi circuit, which was a track in Mario Kart 8. i don't care about new characters so much but same game engine + same levels = first game. they haven't done this before ?

there are two weapons in the mario kart shot, so it's actually a new mario kart, probably with the same gameplay style as double dash 

 

edit: i dunno

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
