Nintendo is finally going to provide all the deets on the Switch on the 12th and 13th this week...

 

Also, someone's figured out how to add up to 90 games on a NES Mini Classic console...

beat the diablo 3 20 year anniversary darkening of tristram thing with my wife over the weekend. had never even bothered to try adventure mode but it was pretty fun starting a new character and clearing the dungeon/hearing the old tunes.

Beat Titanfall 2 on Master over the weekend... that fucking battle against Viper was a real bitch, still loving the multiplayer. Fucking great game.
Also beat Ratchet & Clank over the weekend, fun game and the added nostalgia was nice.

 

Really looking forward to Horizon: Zero Dawn next month.

My son's been doing that as well with friends... the way the cow familiar walks just cracks me up...

so i'm thinking about pre-ordering the Switch. i've never pre-ordered before, do you pay the whole amount upfront> ? or half, ?

in North America usually just a deposit, unless it's online like Amazon , then they won't charge you til it ships. It sounds like supply will be extremely constrained, GameStop and Nintendo World are accepting in-store reservations only at this point, tomorrow morning at opening. I'll have to hope for an online pre-order myself.

even with the patch the framerate for the last guardian on og ps4 is really shitty when your in exterior environments. it's not that great when you're in interiors either. playable though but sometimes only barely.

 

shame too. hope this isn't indicative of how things will be going forward where you really get a much shittier experience on ogps4 over ps4pro.

 

bought a 2tb sshd to upgrade my ps4 w/for $99. looking forward to hours of dls/updates =\

it probably would've been an amazing ps2 game

is it not good? Looks quite fantastic to me. Haven't played. But certainly one of the few games which kinda make me want a PS4 (and a screen...)

i think it's very good looking (even though it is quite dated and doesn't at all test the limits of the ps4). the feel of the camera and movement, some of the animation feels similarly dated but that's a given seeing as how it's been in the works for almost 10 years. supposedly the lame framerate is due to it mainly being programmed as a ps3 (unique architecture, notoriously hard to program for) and not being very well optimized for ps4. apparently ps4pro is able to brute force it a good bit and get a more consistent (although still underwhelming) framerate. 

Got my copy of Infinite Warfare and godddamit COD4 doesn't even come on a disc, it's a 56gb download. Thanks EA.

i'm tempted to get this as well for ~$40 for both games to play w/my bud who pretty much exclusively plays cod. the beta for iw was actually pretty fun and i've never played mw1

i upgraded my ps3 with a seagate sshd in march 2014 and haven't had any issues. def saw speed increases in loading too. thought back then it was $75 for 500 gigs...

 

but i don't think i ever filled it up either (i think it was upgrading a 250 gig slim?)

 

the new one was supposed to arrive tonite but looks like it'll be tomorrow instead...

that ARMS game with the joycon controls looks tight, lots of good games. zelda looks so badass.

They actually had the balls to say 2 1/2 hour battery life minimum, looks like that 20,000 mAh battery I have will come in handy for travel. Hopefully, a plethora of battery packs will surface for Switch. And Zelda at launch sealed the deal for me.

definitely not gonna fight the crowds to get it at launch but i'll probably end up w/one in 2017. i definitely prefer the ergonomics of having completely separate rhand lhand controllers (assuming they fit the size of your hand) so you don't have to roll your shoulders all the way forward like you do doing every other fucking thing you do in modern life. the splitting of the controllers for multiplayer games is dope. and just bringing the screen+controller to a friend's house for a new kind of "local" multiplayer (wifi party?) seems pretty rad too.

 

they did a fantastic job with that last zelda trailer tho.

 

but i'm already reading people shitting on it. their launch lineup looks paper thin outside of zelda (but they know that's enough to sell them out). i imagine this'll end up as another first party only system for me. 3rd party stuff on ps4/pc

I'm betting that games like 1, 2 Switch and others will be download only titles, and several unannounced games will surface at launch, possible Mother 3, etc. (I'd love a Wii Sports repack) Mario Odyssey looks really cool, the hat mechanic could add a lot, and the trippy visuals are always welcome. The red / blue joy con package seems a little wonky to me, and will probly be the lower selling config at launch, the rumored orange / blue Splatoon controllers would have been more aesthetically pleasing IMO, and we still may get those when Splatoon 2 launches this Summer. Overall, a good presentation but yeah that translator was drunk.

kind of agreeing with this. the games showed in this conference did nothing but dampen my enthusiasm for the system. 

 

but i'll probably still get one eventually to play my nintendo titles (the mario, zelda, etc.etc.etc).

 

it's funny them going from the first Switch reveal, which was marketed very specifically at adults and had no visible kids and seemed like a no direction for nintendo? to this conference which was largely BAU for nintendo, showing off whatever motion controlled style content i couldnt particularly care for and making the switch look like the Wii 3. 

 

still though. i think im happy to waste my money on this garbage.. for some reason. :^) !!

You can disable the console remotely from you cell phone with a new Parental Controls app, meant to keep watch on your kids, but will be wide open for abuse, i.e. keep others from playing your console while you're gone, or over writing your game save. Interested to see the full smart device integration for My Nintendo, social media, friends list functions, etc.

- Nintendo Switch reveal #1 back in 2016 - Shows footage of skyrim running on switch

- Bethesda publicly state Skyrim is actually not confirmed for Switch and that nothing is planned

- Nintendo Switch Conference in 2017 - Todd Howard on screen "I'm happy to announce that Skyrim is coming to the Nintendo Switch"

 

:psyduck: :psyduck:

 

you can't just announce a game for a system, then say no that's not happening, and then announce it again at a second conference. that's fucking cheating !!!

      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!
