      Just wanted to say thanks for linking that wiki to the Dev of BotW was actually laughing my ass off reading the portion on the physics of the game during development.

      "Aonuma called the physics engine in Breath of the Wild a major development for the Zelda series, saying that it "underpins everything in the world" and makes things operate in a "logical and realistic way", allowing players to approach puzzles and problems in different ways. He expanded on the difficulty in developing this system, recalling how one day during development he entered an area in the game and found that all the objects had been blown away by the wind."

      I'm just picturing his confused face trying to figure out why the items hadn't spawned, and then seeing the smile on his face as he watched a whole pile of apples being blown down a hill and into a river only to be taken out and eaten by a group of enemies who saw food. I'd imagine it was a mix of annoyance but still happiness that it worked so well... or realistic.

      Mind me asking where that Gif in your sig is from? I know it's Karate Man from the Rhythm heaven games but I've not see a variation of that where there's a cat spawning after a combo with him? was that from the 3DS release of it?

      Also sorry if I came off as arrogant in that other thread, I sort of get what you meant that they could have left off the coin stuff at all since it didn't apply but I kinda do work sometimes which involves doing tech support for stuff where someone has signed up for something which literally gives them very specific things and they call up asking me why they don't have something else, most of the time that sadly boils down to me sending them on what they signed with an arrow pointing to it :S it's shitty sounding I know and yeah like I said I didn't mean to sound like a tool @ you was just me going like..... ==========> NO COINS!

      Again sorry it read like I was being a dick wasn't my intention of joining it just to stop you in your tracks before you started to go down the "false advertising" path of attack at them because they would just send you an email back pretty much with.... ========>NO COINS! in it lol.

      I was just trying to save the Nintendo version of me from reading an email and you from having to go to the bother of writing it and reading their reply of that part of the ToC of the vouchers.

      x
      Woah, easy there man. No need for that many explanations. Let's just say we both were a bit too arrogant and stubborn, ok? In the end, it resulted neither of us was right. You ACTUALLY get coins from Link's Awakening if you pick it up with a voucher. Not double, but the regular number. Go figure xD

      And just for the record, I was pretty sure Nintendo didn't do that advertisement on purpose. And of course, I wasn't going to ask Nintendo to change it or something. I only was very surprised that they would post something like that and I wanted to show people as a curiosity we could discuss about. Nothing more xD

      And the gif... it's from the end of Remix 9 of Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Wii (Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise here in Europe). Love the series... I hope they make one for the Switch soon ^^

      Ah awesome, I definitely need to dig out my Wii and get that game 100%'d I absolutely love that series, it's like WarioWare but more focused on making slightly less mini games into amazing set pieces.

      If you enjoyed the DS/Wii games you should check out the Rom of Rhythm Tengoku on the GBA, there are some sites which host a version of it with english text on it but even without the english text it's fairly easy to navigate around and well worth it for some of the games if you enjoy the series.

      And that's cool that you get coins... baffling! but cool, I'm really considering picking up a pair of those vouchers for Pokemon and Luigis mansion I think it works out at about 20e saving for me doing that because I want those games and considering they'll still be 60 in a years time I was thinking I might just jump in and get them on launch.


      Just got Grid Autosport today on the Switch. wow that port is amazing, if you like driving sim games it's really beautiful in comparison to Gear Club unlimited it's like it's on a different system the game is so complete.

      Fever is probably the second most difficult to Perfect. Remix 10 and a couple more minigames are insanely difficult to do flawless. But it doesn't come close to the bullshit Moai Do Wop 2, Love Lizards or Remix 8 were on the DS one xD

      Ah, you're not talking with the average Rhythm Heaven fan here. After perfecting both Heaven and Heaven Fever and knowing that there was a GBA one that never came out of Japan, I just bought a japanese cartridge on eBay. Bon Odori was a nightmare on japanese, but overall one of the best purchases I made in my entire life. Later, I played the patched english ROM. Amazing job from the translators. So good...

      I must clarify that I did not bought the vouchers. My whole thread was made because the news pop out on my Switch and I thought it was something we could discuss about. It was another user (a mod I think) that confirmed to me that you get some points from Link's Awakening.

      Anyway, I'm VERY tempted to purchase some vouchers. In my case, for Pokémon and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. I think Pokémon will definetly have this "double coins" thing in the future... and I have the original TMS on the Wii U, so it doesn't hurt me to not have it physical.

      Overall, it's a very juicy deal if you don't dislike digital games. You get each game for 49,95 euros, which is 10 euros less than normal on the eShop... and the same as on Amazon with free shipping. But, you also get 4,95 euros to use on the eShop on future purchases... and an extra 3 euros if one of the games has the "x2 Gold Coins" deal on it. Overall, you get the games at the best price AND you can potentially get 8 euros for the eShop (or 11 if both games have the "x2 Gold Coins" deal...). AND you get to play them right away the day the release, the moment they are available... because they usually let you pre-download them. AND, in the case of games like Pokémon... I personally love to go digital because it's the kind of game you'll play probably during the entire Switch life cycle.

      Oof... I'm not really into racing games. But I heard Grid Autosport is a great port, so I'm glad you're having a good time ^^

      Hey Bris just a heads up on the guy you banned a few days back.

      http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9050266

      That person, if you read the top comment on his wall (which was from last year) he openly admits to that being an alt of a banned user account.

      Cool avatar, your own art?

      Thanks. I actually commissioned it by artist called Herbie Bearclaw who used to be a Disney Imagineer.

      on 03 September 2019

      x
      omg that is awesome :o Traditional Disney hand animation is something I wish we still had when it comes to awesome movies like Zootoopia I would have loved to see that done in the hand animation styling of Lion King.

      I'm sure hand drawn Gazelle would have been even more awesome that the amazing CGi one which Shakira had input on the design of (she insisted on more booty heh)

      Thanks for the info though, see the full pic now on affinity OwO Hi!

      on 03 September 2019

      x
      I do agree that it is sad to see less and less traditional hand drawn animations. Alot of the CGI stuff that comes out now a days is amazing! But I think they can have both out there and there would be enough demand for each kind!

      No problem. I was going to send a link to the full pic when I had a moment, glad you found it! Yeah he did an amazing job on it! I even changed the character a bit based on discussions/suggestions from him while he was sketching up the drawing.

      Heh, I like tracking down a nice pic ! More fun having a hunt! I could see from the top of the pic as well there was a hint of clothes so I could kinda rule out e621 .... but checked all the same just in case >:D

      Seen the mix of Shadis+Dragon owo very pretty. giving me Mushu vibes from Mulan.

      on 04 September 2019

      x
      I like your assessment about cloths and making that so it would not appear on e621! Very funny!

      Yeah that came out really nice, commissioned from a fella names Jonas. It does kind of have that Oriental/Cartoony dragon look to it for sure!

      Seeing your post in that politics/shooting thread... all I could think to myself was "where do drive by's fall in this" is it a traffic related death... or a gun related death. I mean whichever side it falls to is bad but I just pictured someone trying to decide which it was in terms of adding to the two terrible numbers that the US puts out in both those categories.

      Given my number of posts in that thread already.... I'll drop this comment here instead of there, since it's meant in jest and that thread is turning/turned very sour, as it probably should given the 2 mass shootings which spawned it.

      Thank you kindly for the add on here! Find it shocking that you make so many posts but I don't think I've read one that has made me question my faith in humanity like a lot of people on the internets!

      x
      Haha cheers man, I do try not to post rubbish, though I'm unsure if I always succeed, I don't think I've ever read one of yours that made me despair either.
      I actually thought for ages that I'd already added you but apparently I just thought I did.

      on 05 August 2019

      I'm not sure if I've ever added people on here myself, while I love to dive into threads and drop posts which don't always go down so well with everyone! (one made in the last few hours being deemed the dumbest thing on here ever by someone, hurrah) but yeah when it comes to the social media side of things on here I just kinda do my own thing and stick to myself.

      Same goes for facebook... I think I've got about 50 friends on there because the people I've added are all people who I've shared meals with in real life, there are some of my relatives who have hundreds and thousands of friends... some of whom they've never even said anything to, I find it nuts but it's the 2019 norm.... maybe it's me that's nuts!

      thank you kindly for the add on here! Meant it btw with some of your recent posts and thread ideas being cool to get people to come back on here a few times a day to check in.

      Site needs people who come up with ideas like those to get traffic flowing.

      x
      Thanks! I always liked the “say something” thread and was surprised it didn’t exist anymore. Then I found out why. Thanks for pointing that out. Guess I should spend some more quality time reading the forum rules. Haha.

      on 05 August 2019

      x
      No worries, I don't think the mods have any problems with those kinda threads existing, especially with the drop in traffic the site has suffered in the last 2 years, thanks for the name drop in the OP btw of that thread ! Put a silly grin on my face.

      In my experience btw! if you miss something in the rules here, it won't be too long before a mod comes to let you know :D but you do get people like myself trying to be helpful and pointing those things out... or slamming that report button.

      One type of thread that I've seen having great success in other places is a sort of "topic for cool stuff you find on the net" in terms of pictures, youtube videos or just random news stories. The only issue is, this site can get pretty heated at times, where one person might find a story about a man wanting his balls brazzilian'd as being hilarious someone else might find it offensive and not at all funny, not sure could you have such a thread in 2019 where people want to get offended and be offended for other groups or people who are not impacted by jokes / meme's anymore, just for example it was the 10 year anniversary of maddie getting killed by her parents (allegedly) so yeah there was meme's and jokes flying about that... but I don't think mods would ever approve a "expect to be somewhat offended" thread... maybe they would if it drew positive eyes in places?



      Sorry I'm just thinking aloud against your wall!! I'll shup, if you've any ideas on how a thread like that could work would be cool to see or hear.

      Nice! Yeah, I was bummed that it got passed over and couldn't make sense of the post but figured the guy had me on ignore or something and couldn't see my post. I love all Wes Anderson, but Fantastic Mr. Fox stands in a category all by itself. One of the best animated of all time.

      I'm glad at least someone seen my hopeful addition to the PS4 controller! I was in a proper silly mood and was just thinking... what would be the most wacky thing I could think of. It was either going to be that or a George Foreman opening on the side of it.

      x
      A good idea is a good idea. And we already had the Foreman grill last gen. Gotta keep innovating.

      on 26 July 2019

      x
      oh god yeah... the ps3 phat, I forgot that was designed using the same mold as used in the foreman grills.
      Maybe that's how they'll add ps3 backwards compatibility, create an accessory to attack to the ps5 which is a small USB George Foreman Grill... functional too so you can make snacks mid game.

      Yoooo said I'd reply in here rather than on that front page article if you don't mind ALA? My phone hates the comment reply section on there and also that article will be pretty tough to find in a day or so.

      I don't ever mean to "make fun" of the X1 or MS as a player in the gaming world, Genuinely I feel that Sony needs to have them there keeping them in check, the absolutely best era of HD gaming in my opinion was that point where the PS3 and X360 were fighting tooth and nail for 2nd place after the Wii, each big title that the PS3 got was followed up with a monster from the MS camp, it was utter war between them and the biggest winners without a doubt was us, the gaming fans.

      As this generation has progressed I felt myself growing less and less interested with the PS4 the further out its lead grew, don't get me wrong, it is a phenomenal system which I always recommend to people who ask me which system they should buy when it comes to keeping a household happy with games, but that said, from the point where they stopped having to fight to be number 1, I feel as though they've just kinda been phoning it in, there are some really awesome games still dropping every now and then but they've done nothing ground breaking in the same way that MS done all they could to bring Backwards compat to the X1 and from both X360 and original Xbox as well.

      It has gotten to a point now where both companies have suffered from the gap imo, Sony have suffered because they're the status quo in gaming, they're not offering crazy deals or new ways to enjoy gaming on the ps4 because they don't have to, at the same time MS have done so poorly that it seems most of their titles now go through dev hell for years... then some exec just comes in and lets the team know they've wasted enough time and money and the game needs to ship now.... and we get things like Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves just literally stumble out the door from redmond and fall flat on their face.

      Felt like over the last two years Nintendo have been the ones fighting the hardest to prove that the Switch was not another WiiU, from going out the door swinging with breath of the wild and mario ody in the first year, to making deals happen for titles like Skyrim and Doom from major 3rd parties, and not just accept terrible torn up ports of partial games either, but the Switch is getting downgraded visually but otherwise complete games ported to it, on top of some of the biggest games in the world in the form of Minecraft and Fortnite existing alongside those awesome Nintendo titles, they were down and out in the eyes of most people and for me they've gotten back up at the count of 9 and have not stopped swinging for 2 years.... I'm now looking at buying a 512GB micro SD because my Switch hasn't enough space with the 128 and 256gb cards I have for it already.

      My post regarding the Xbox2... Xbox362.... Xbox 1-2-Uniflu who knows, is that their issue is 100% that smug smile of Phil S talking in nothing but PR buzzwords that his team of execs have told him to rattle off, they need to come out and admit that their shit this gen sucked, they tried to push Kinect, always online, no used games, TV, Cloud gaming, Cloud processing power, 4kUHD Blu Ray drive, 4k 20-30fps gaming, the death of co op in Halo (so angry about that still) they tried to come on stage over and over and tell gamers what they wanted... to tell people that couch co op was dead to me was a message that me as a gamer who has a 130" screen with often not enough chairs to sit the people who I game with is a customer that they no longer acknowledge exists to them, as such they with that mindset are dead to me as well until they cop on (I know that've stated that each new Halo game will have couch co op again) but there needs to be some humble pie eaten before I would consider adding another MS machine to my gaming circle here.



      TL:DR - I don't hate MS in gaming, I just wish they would be better and that they would be a company who makes something with me in mind as a gamer.





      Sorry this became large, tbh I knew it would be because I feel like MS has fallen so far, I have literally boxes of X360 games in my house because of how much a fanboy of that system I was, at the point where you gotta alphabetise your boxes... I know I've issues lol, but yeah I just wish they would cop on and address the problems that I have with them right now, not address things which are not the issue, in the mean time I'm playing my Switch with its processor the same power as my phone and no dvd drive, nevermind 4k UHD or netflix heh.

      xD it was very funny! look at my most recent post too ... classic example of a beef curtain sandwhich lmao

      By the way, I feel too mentally exhausted to reply in the white washing thread. So hopefully either way there's no hard feelings. I'll probably reply, but man I just find political discussion too stressful and depressing, so I might not. Hopefully that's ok.

      Yeah no worries man, I think I went into overly defense mode after your first reply because I'm fairly sure I misread it as you taking a jump on me for going down a "why can't my show stay full of just whiteys" when you were actually going after a different portion of what was changed in the White > Black post.

      I'm just pretty casual about how I talk to and about others and have before been told that I was making a racist comment by referring to someone here where I live as "black" instead of correctly calling them "African America" I should point out, I live in Ireland, loads of the dark skinned people who live here have no links in generations to Africa and most certainly no links to America so calling someone with dark skin that term I argued was not only an incorrect description of where the person is from but simply using a PC term incorrectly to feel good about themselves pointlessly,

      I'm loving the direction that thread has gone with the pics btw, some funny stuff in there with the jumps back and forth to what people think, but... my only worry is that I think threads like that required moderator approval and I'm not sure if the OP would have asked for it. I would hate to see it locked because it's actually the first thread I open now when I land at VGchartz.

      Sorry for getting my back up and going defensive mode on you so fast in that other thread though, I should have just asked which you meant before jumping on what I thought you meant.
