    Wii U not technically possible

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 December 2015

    It does not necessarily mean the console is too weak. This has bothered me for some time now when people overreact to this. "Technically impossible" could mean the engine the game runs on only works on other architectures. It could mean they wrote the code in a way that makes it "technically impossible" to port the game to the Wii U without putting lots of resources into it (they'd have to...

    At what point does a game's length becomes an issue?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 December 2015

    To me, it depends on the kind of game. An RPG can be 30 hours long and that's fine, but if it lasts 50 hours + I won't buy it. Generally, 10-20 hours of play time is ideal for me. The games I recently played are Metroid Prime (8 hours), Metroid Prime 2 (10 hours), Walking Dead episodes one and two (2-3 hours each) and God of War: Ascension (10 hours). I sometimes buy games that last very long,...

    Would you rather Starfox dropped the 2nd screen for better graphics?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 November 2015

    I voted yes. I couldn't care less about the graphics but the Gamepad looks like it's been brutally forced into Starfox' core gameplay. I'm worried using the dual screen setup will be a chore and make the game less fun - it transforms the game from a fast paced arcade shooter into a slow paced puzzle style game where you constantly try to keep track of two things at once. And I'd prefer them to...

    When Will the Frame Rate Standard Go Beyond 60fps?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 November 2015

    I'm curious to see how 120fps looks like as I've only played at 60fps so far. I doubt it will be the standard next console generation. 4k will be the standard resolution when the next wave of Sony / Microsoft consoles release. Pushing 4x the number of pixels while simultaneously doubling the framerate would put some serious strain on the hardware, leaving too little extra power for added...

    Mario Tennis Ultra Smash at 61 on Metacritic

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 November 2015

    I have this feeling Nintendo shifted all of its development focus to NX. Thus, we get rushed games and fillers. Too many games recently look like Nintendo just wants to fill release gaps (this, Amiibo, Starfox). They probably cut development cycles short because NX will launch a year earlier than initially planned. ...

    Will you be buying Twilight Princess HD?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 November 2015

    Undecided. It depends on how much they improve upon the original. We haven't seen much yet, so I'm taking the wait and see approach. ...

    Why do people continually call Skyward Sword the worst selling 3D Zelda game?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 November 2015

    Nogamez said: IIIIITHE1IIIII said: Majora's Mask sold 3.36 million copies while Skyward Sword sold 3.96 million. Nintendo 64 sold 32.93 million units while Wii has sold over 101 million. Although Skyward Sword technically sold more you have to put things into perspective. I see the point your making. It's strange zelda sequels on same console seem to sell alot less than...

    Twilight Princess HD or Wind Waker HD: Which Looks Better?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 November 2015

    Wind Waker looks better, but Twilight Princess is the better game and has more content. I disagree with people who say Wind Waker SD aged well, though. The colors in the original look very bland compared to the remake and overall it just looks dull. Wind Waker HD shines because of the intense colors and improved lighting. Twilight Princess had a great art direction but unfortunately most of the...

    Twilight Princess HD looks underwhelming

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 November 2015

    I was underwhelmed when I watched the Direct but I'm just going to wait and see for now. Seeing the game run in 1080p at 60fps will be a big improvement. If they tweak some annoying stuff in the game I'll buy it. To me Twilight Princess is a better game than Wind Waker. It may have aged worse but the game itself was really grand and epic back in the day. Looking forward to play it again on a...

    Why isn't motion controlled gaming still a big deal?

    in Gaming Discussion on 11 November 2015

    midrange said: Playstation move also didn't take of. And that was very similar to the wii remote. Most people are done with motion control. Wii sports HD is a HUGE farcry sales wise from the original. VR may very well be the next fad to pop up, but I gaurantee that motion control is no longer as wanted as you think it is. Most companies know this. This is why Ubisoft shifted their focus...

    Official NX Discussion Thread

    zorg1000 said:Anybody else think it's possible we get a handheld and console that are pretty much the same in terms of hardware? Something similar to what Apple has with the newest iPod & Apple TV? Both have the same SoC, although I believe Apple TV is at a higher clock rate, and the other main difference is Apple TV has 2gb RAM vs 1gb for iPod. Is something like this possible for NX...

    Official NX Discussion Thread

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 November 2015

    It's a bit lame that we can't make new threads, but anyway: I think Nintendo will use the same game cards for both NX home and handheld console. Cards will work for both devices so you have to buy your physical games only once. 32GB and lower should be cheap enough to produce and prices for flash storage will go down over time. There'll be cloud storage for save files, of course. And it makes...

    What do you think of Link's new TP character model?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 November 2015

    Looks more like a Zelda U artwork to me. We just haven't seen Link in his traditional clothes in Zelda U so far. Looks too cartoonish for Twilight Princess. Oh god, if they remake Twilight Princess with cartoon graphics I'm gonna scream. ...

    Will Twilight Princess HD look like the E3 2011 Tech Demo?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 October 2015

    That would be amazing but I think it will just be Twilight Princess in 1080p / 60fps and higher res textures. They'll probably improve some effects and give the game a "Hero Mode" (which it needs badly in my opinion).  I'm more interested in them fixing some flaws in the game: Twilight Princess gave you like a million rupees whenever you entered a secret area and later in the game your...

    Zelda: Tri Force Heroes first reviews [Metacritic: 75]

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 October 2015

    I thought the e3 trailer looked horrible. I didn't play Spirit Tracks because trains don't belong in a Zelda game and I won't play this either. I know many people here like anime, cell shading and think crossdressing in a Zelda game is cool but to me this is on the same level of ridiculousness as having a Lord of the Rings game in which you... well, do exactly what you do in Triforce Heroes....

    Whats going on with Retro???

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 October 2015

    They had the next Metroid (?) scheduled for a late 2016 release on Wii U. Then Nintendo decided to launch the NX in late 2016 and approached Retro to redo the game for the new platform instead. Because of this we didn't see their new project despite the twitter teasing. ...

    Tantalus Port = Could it be Twilight Princess HD?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 October 2015

    Makes sense. It would be a high caliber game but not take away any of Nintendo's resources which they surely need for NX. Iwata also talked a lot about partnerships with other companies earlier in the year. But why would they wait so long with an announcement? Maybe the game was supposed to be announced sooner but after Iwata's passing they decided to postpone the announcement? I think this...
