    What is your favorite method for aiming in Video Games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 July 2017

    Generally, I like a nice mixture of gyro motion and analog controller. The second analog stick is good for less accurate, quicker movement while gyro is best for actually aiming at and hitting targets. IR pointer control comes in at a close or decent second, depending on how well it has been implemented....

    Switch is beating Wii U, but behind the original Wii.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 July 2017

    The fact that both systems suffered significant supply issues makes any kind of comparison between the two consoles pretty pointless at this point. All this really demonstrates is that Nintendo has been less able to supply Switchs compared to Wiis, due to tighter component shortages. The only reasonable thought one can take away from this comparison is that the Switch is, like the Wii,...

    I really wanna see Valerian and the city of a thousand planets but critics have ruined it for me

    in Movies Discussion on 22 July 2017

    I saw it just before the Rotten Tomatoes score tanked. It is a very beautiful movie with characters that constantly walk the line between stilted and insufferable, and dialogue that ranges from mediocre to downright bad. By far the best reason to see this movie is its visuals. It's filled with awesome alien designs and cool locations, including an entire massive shopping mall in a seperate...

    DF: More Wii U Ports Heading To Switch! Is This A Good Thing?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 July 2017

    Nuvendil said: Depends. If the ports are in place of efforts for new games that's troublesome. Also, I am not a huge fan of porting the biggest sellers. Rather, I want to see more games like Pokken: games that had a lot of sales potential that the Wii U was unable to tap into. So XCX, Bayonetta 2, Pokken, possibly Tokyo Mirage Sessions. These are all games that I think could have gone...

    Which is the most significant (important) console in history?

    After the Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 July 2017

    In the near term, we definitely need smaller version of the console that just runs games in their portable mode specs. Something that can take the 3DS's place and run 3DS and DS software. After that, though? Definitely a Switch Ultra HD console, when that tech becomes available....

    Which is the most significant (important) console in history?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 July 2017

    Atari's Tele-Games Pong console essentially built the home game industry. It was the console that proved interactive television entertainment was viable as a consumer product. There's a reason why virtually all of the early consoles released ahead of the Atari 2600 were essentially Pong clones (Magnavox Odyssey and Fairchild Channel F being the two primary exceptions). Expanding on that, the Pong...

    Will there be a market for a N64 mini next year?

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 July 2017

    An N64 Mini faces two serious problems: the original system's controller is awful, and the system's library is far narrower and hasn't really aged as well as the NES and (especially) the SNES Mini. And if Nintendo can't gain access to Rare's titles, or Factor 5's Star Wars games? That's a lot of the system's best games, not even in the package. Now, I'm not saying it can't (or shouldn't) be...

    Oddworld Creator, Lorne Lanning Exposes Nintendo! & Says Tasteless Stuff About Iwata!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 July 2017

    Third parties had quite a bit of success with the Wii. That's why it received so many titles, including quite a few quality ones. In terms of third party support it was easily Nintendo's most successful effort since the SNES. Sure, the Wii didn't get many ports, but its bread and butter from third parties were exclusive games anyway. And many of these exclusives sold well. Ubisoft, SEGA, EA,...

    Switch systems apparently come with an internal NES emulator

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 July 2017

    This essentially means every NES game can run on a single built-in emulator, rather than each game coming with its own. I imagine this will shrink the required file sizes of individual games. I wonder if they'll do this for the other Virtual Console games?...

    Nintendo leads Japan's First 6 Months of Sales

    Charging the Nintendo Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 July 2017

    I've yet to find a third party charging solution that'll work in docked mode. But if you are interested in some USB-C to USB 3 cables that are pretty reliable, these have been serving me well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C2OAFRE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1...

    Nintendo needs to make a TV-only Switch Pro

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 June 2017

    If you don't care about the portability of the Switch, then don't take it out of the dock. Games like Mario Kart are already gorgeous. The system is already producing games matching most of today's displays: 1080p. You also wouldn't save much money by removing th joycons, given that the Pro Controller is only $20 cheaper. All that really does is remove functionality and compatibility. I mean, I...

    Sonic Forces running at 30 FPS on Switch as of now

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 June 2017

    Hey: I'm the guy who wrote the impressions Nintendo Everything sourced. I figured I'd note a few things they left out. I wrote quite a bit more than what the article mentions. For one, there was no discernible difference between docked mode and portable mode, graphically. E3 demos are, by their very nature, in an incomplete state, and are typically poorly optimized. It is very possible that...

    There is No such thing as Gen Nine!!!!!

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 June 2017

    Generations have always been ambiguous and poorly defined. If you look at how generations are usually divided and defined, you will not find any consistent rules in place in regards to how it is done. Do you go by graphical improvements? Well if that's the case, you can't really consider the Wii a 7th gen console and the Wii U an 8th gen console. There is also technically a lost generation of...

    Design the successor to the 3DS

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 June 2017

    My ideal 3DS successor would essentually be a Nintendo Switch shrunk down into a regular New 3DS case. Give it a second screen, make the top screen capacitive touch, and add a second cartridge slot for 3DS/DS backwards compatibility. Include street pass functionality and a transfer system to allow for the transfer of all DSi/3DS digital software. ...

    Uncharted 4 & Horizon ZD look so mind blowingly great they have spoiled games for me.

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 June 2017

    They most certainly do not feel or look like 9th gen games. If anything, they are the first genuine 8th gen games, some of the first games to really tap into the generation's power. But "9th gen"? Heck no, that's ridiculous....
