    How Color-Blind Are You?

    in General Discussion on 14 September 2017

    BraLoD said: Normal, but in two of them I had to rotate my table screea a bit to be able to perceive a pattern, it looked all gray at the direct angle I was looking At least one of the grey ones was completely blank but a couple of the others had numbers. These are actually easier for colour blind people to see,  who are, for reasons I can't recall in detail, more capable of...

    Destructoid: Breaking down why Breath of the Wild is highly overrated

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 August 2017

    Johnw1104 said: The only way you can be sure that a game (or film) really are superb is if they're soon accompanied by a surly wave of contrarians attempting to rewrite the narrative lol The game had some flaws (I can certainly think of a few), and a greater diversity of enemies would certainly suit the game, but this is a game that most people played waaaay beyond 40 hours before getting...

    A new low?

    Adguard. Covers both Windows and Android with a single license. I repeatedly appealed to the Admins during times when I was getting auto redirected to inappropriate sites when launching the site, getting full page ads that blocked the whole page, ads that stopped the page scrolling properly, made the page continuously jump up and down. I was roundly ignored every time. I'm not risking the...

    EA “exploring other products” for Switch, has to consider “player differences”

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 June 2017

    The Switch user base is three months old...pray tell what player differences EA have discovered in that time. I've heard these bullshit excuses from EA before. I know there are different kinds of gamers but I don't know any gamers who like paying the same for an inferior product (I'm talking features, not tech). If they, just once, produced a Nintendo game with feature parity, at the same...

    Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers - 68 Meta - 65% GR

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 May 2017

    Just checked. Here in Australia I can get a physical copy of Mario Kart 8 Delux (an enhanced port) for $69. Ultra STF (also known as STFU), an enhanced port, can be had digitally for $59. That's not funny....

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe works flawless with 4G hotspots!

    Hmmm. Hadn't even thought to give it a go, might have to try. I get about 10ms and 75mMbps (the only situation where an Australian doesn't have to be ashamed when taking internet speed)...

    Your most "Zen" experience in a game

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 April 2017

    I'm taking this to mean 'in the zone', rather than just imparting calm through atmosphere. For me it's hard to go past Bit Trip Runner 2 on the hardest difficulty. Honourable mentions for Bayonetta 2, the music levels of Rayman and Splatoon during some of my finer online moments. ...

    Zelda: focused or just dicking around?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 April 2017

    d21lewis said: The thing about Zelda is that you'll see one thing and begin heading there. Before you get there, you'll be distracted by something else. Before you do that, something else will get your attention. Suddenly, a whole play session has passed and all you've done was dick around. This. I played with the aim of taking my time and not rushing to the end but I still want to...

    Zelda BoTW improves performance with version 1.1.1 (Both on Switch and WiiU)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 March 2017

    S.Peelman said: Excellent! The game is so enticing that I didn't really care, but less framerate issues is of course even better. How's killing Moblins now? There were big drops 9 of 10 times when killing a Moblin. I'm curious, does everyone have this issue? I was over my brother's place the other day and was playing BOTW on Switch and was shocked at the slide show that was...

    Dual Analog Aiming Sucks, Hail Motion Aiming

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 March 2017

    Yup. I find it can very occasionally create issues for me with really quick, tight turns, but in every other situation I find it superior. To reiterate for those unfamiliar, it's dual analogue aiming with motion control for fine tuning. ...

    Breath of the wild runs better on portable mode (digital foundry)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 March 2017

    When the WiiU came out, it was broadly lambasted in certain quarters for not having a standard 1080p 60fps, although Nintendo generally did an admiral job from the outset of prioritising 60fps. When the Xbox1 and PS4 came out with a host of sub 1080p games at 30fps those same quarters were deafeningly quiet My perspective:I love me a good frame rate but to be honest the dips in Zelda just...

    The JoyCon grip feels very natural

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 March 2017

    I think its fine but a bit small and I'm not yet convinced about the sticks. Bought a pro controller anyway for multiplayer. Edit. I find the pro controller much better. It may in part be due to the fact that I'm starting to get more familiar with the controls but in my first session using it,  it just felt more natural. (And this is from someone who barely used the pro controllers in the...

    Switch : Docking may scratch your screen ! Go buy à Screen protector !

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 March 2017

    Had a look at this earlier and I honestly have no idea how they managed it. The fit is very loose and the plastic rails at each corner are broad and flat. I'm calling extreme carelessness, stupidity or else they've scratched it on something esse without realising it and have jumped to conclusions....

    Would you buy a stronger switch-hardware with better battery/graphics?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 March 2017

    A slightly more powerful dock for the same assets but a 'guaranteed' 1080p and 60fps......sure. I'm not likely to use it too much in handheld mode though so a battery bump holds no particular sway over me, and by all accounts it looks very decent at 720p on the small screen anyway....
