    Puzzle Swap 2 - Purple Panels

    I accidentally skipped through the instructions. What are the purple panels (other than not being buyable with play coins)?...

    Skyward Sword - Bird Feathers - Spoilerish mabye?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 25 November 2011

    Ok, I can't for the life of me catch the bird's with my bug net to get feathers. Is there some trick to it? Semi related, is it worth upgrading my Sacred Shield (which I need the feathers for) or is a replacement shield right around the corner (I am currently getting the pickup for the Water Dragon)....

    Skyward Sword Wii Remote+ Still Happening?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 30 August 2011

    So the release date for the game just got confirmed. We havn't seen anything about those golden remotes since they were first mentioned. I have three Remote+ already and don't want to double up in colours (and blue and pink have no nunchuk). I was wondering if the Zelda version is still happening and if so, is there a golden nunchuk? Has Nintendo said anything more at all?...

    Club Nintendo: Donkey Kong Posters

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 27 July 2011

    The history one isn't as well done as the Mario (or even the Zelda) but that poster showing level 1 of Donkey Kong is downright amazing. That made it a must order for me, even with the markup. I really want to see a Metroid poster set though. I know it's a minor series but I'd easily pay 500 coins for something like that. The asthetic design in Metroid is downright amazing....

    Updated Ocarina of Time OST Details

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 20 June 2011

    Like many, I didn't get the popup to get my OST shipped. The page is now updated to say that the OST will ship to everyone who registererd the game (by midnight of June 20 PST). Does this mean that there is no action required on my part, and that everything is going to be handled automatically or do I still need to contact Nintendo support to get it taken care of?...

    Super Mario 3DS

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 08 June 2011

    I didn't find a thread for this game yet so ended up starting a new one. So it appears that although this is 3D, the powerups are unlimited (at least the fire and Tanooki that we saw) and you reach a level end rather than star finding, and it is completely platformer oriented (from what we saw) rather than a challenge to proceed. All I can think about is Maelstrom being staired down by Myamoto...

    Club Nintendo Overcredit???

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2011

    So with my 3DS and launch game purchases I hit my Club Nintendo platinum, but I think they overcredited me. I got 30 coins for the game and 10 for Plan To Buy but I also got an extra 10 (in a separate row on the details page) for each game. Is this normal or did I get lucky?   Other question, can I wait until next Club Nintendo year to do the post play surveys?...

    3DS Core Feature Guesses

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 17 June 2010

    So, we've seen the beta hardware, have an epic list of games, but we know very little about the system core features other than 3D and the analog slider. So, what do you think the 3DS is going to have as it's built in "channels" and other hardware features. 3DSWare is a 1:1 odds bet. I'm actually thinking they will put a full gigabyte of flash on the unit, so that they can really push firmware...

    Favourite New Nintendo Game Annoucement

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 15 June 2010

    For me, it's Kid Icarus. The game looked awesome, I love the character in Smash Bros. and the original is a lot of fun (though the lack of precision landing makes it tricky). Also, Sakurai is second only to Myamoto and Gunpei for Nintendo developers. I'm almost as excited for Zelda (the graphics look great despite what IGN says and it looks to be more action oriented without sacrificing the Zelda...

    Hey guys. I just finished writing this for school http://code.google.com/p/sysc-2101-project/downloads/list What does VGChartz think? (You unfortunately need the abomination that is Java installed to run this. Once it's installed, just double click the download from the site.)...

    DSiWare (ideally Action/Platformer) Reccomendations

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 28 March 2010

    So, I'm going to be getting a DSi XL in a few hours (since I rarely take my DS portably when I don't have a large backpack). I already have DS cartridge games, so I am good on that front. What I'm wondering is what sort of action or platformers (or really any DSiWare) games I should be looking at....

    A strange 3DS thoughts

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 24 March 2010

    Yes, it's yet another 3DS thread.   As anyone who has seen a 3D movie, there isn't just pop out, but pop in. That is, we see depth into the screen much more realistically than we would with just a 2D plane. In gaming I see this as almsot essential, showing what is well in front of your character as happening "behind" the screen. With movies, this isn't a problem since the screen is against...

    Need help with image files in Java

    in General Discussion, last active on on 23 March 2010

    Sorry, I don't know any better board to ask this question on, so I'm asking here and hopefully someone here knows. I have .png images for use in a Java program. They work when placed correctly relative to the .class files right now, but I can't get them working in a jar (even with googling instructions, it's not working for me). I need some way to get the images to load both in a .jar and outside...

    Mass Video Transcoder

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 10 January 2010

    I have a whole bunch of video files with MP3 as the audio and MS MPEG4v2 as the video. My Set Top Box can't handle the video. I am looking for a program that can mass transcode the video, while leaving the audio alone. Any reccomendations?...

    Hard Drive Thoughts Needed

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 24 November 2009

    My storage is full and I'm needing a new HDD. Looking to get a 2 TB (no room to RAID smaller drives). I found a Hitachi drive for $150 (Canadian dollars) which is much cheaper than anything else. Are Deskstars decent drives or will I be sorry about the bargain? Has anyone found a better deal or a price that's close on a better brand?...

    Anyone know Intel assembly, I need help

    in General Discussion, last active on on 20 October 2009

    So, what I have to do is take an arbitrary 2 byte signed integer (standard C int really) and determine it's decimal ASCII. That is, if I had $FFFFFFFF I'd need to to create the string "-1" or $0000000F and create the string "16". Needs to be Intel assembly (not exactly a challenge in a high level language). Does anyone know how to manage it? Thanks...

    Attack Helicopter Game

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 24 August 2009

    I've just been bitten by a nostalgia bug and looking for some flight sims. I'd really like to play a good attack helicopter game that is at least a little forgiving on the controls (but not a complete arcade game). Does anyone have a reccomendation?...

    Need Help With Compiz

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 20 August 2009

    I have no idea why, but almost hourly, compiz shuts down and gets replaced with metacity again. All I have to do is restart compiz and it works again. It's really getting on my nerves. Does anyone have an idea what's wrong?...
