On my 42 inch living room TV, (which is situated roughly 3 meters from my eyeballs when I'm on the couch) it still looks perfectly acceptable, definitely not blurry.

That said I would much...

    Mr Puggsly said: curl-6 said: Due to compression, 720p on youtube looks like about 540p in a video game. And hell, I'm still able to play Wii games in 480p and enjoy them, so 720p is a walk in the park by comparison. 720p is more than triple the pixel count of 480p. Even to the average person that transition was obvious. And again, that's the point. 720p was lumped in...

    trunkswd said: curl-6 said: Like PS3 vs PS4 in Japan, this is a fun one to watch as it may end up quite a tight race in the end. I still reckon the Wii will come out the winner, but it'll be close. Gives me a lot of satisfaction to see this one after years of "it's not a success if it's not outselling Wii U + 3DS combined" downplaying. Agreed the Wii will likely remain...

    CarcharodonKraz said: I can definitely agree with that sentiment. To add a different perspective however, you could also go the extra step and discount astral chain. Not because of its scope, but because its a second party title. Depending on the deal it could be multiplat like w101 someday. I kinda get it tho. Ur gonna have ur zelda team making zelda games. Its a proven series. Same w...

    Nintendo Direct Mini has just launched

    in Nintendo Discussion 15 hours ago

    If this was a general Direct I'd say it was terrible as there were no significant new games announced and nothing I'd personally buy (except maybe Panzer Dragoon) but as a mini that's hopefully just a stopgap to keep us updated on their short term plans and tide us over til a proper Direct around E3 time, it was okay. They'd better deliver the goods come June though. ...

    Prediction: Xenoblade Chronicles Future Connected will officially connect Xenoblade X.

    in Nintendo Discussion 16 hours ago

    Yeah I'm with Shiken, given the close ties already between 1 and 2, and the fact both are/will be on Switch, it seems more likely to connect those two further. Nintendo and Monolith seem to be fairly content to let XCX be left behind in relative obscurity, given its one of the few significant Wii U games that hasn't been ported to Switch, and the fact they made XBC2 and XB1:DE instead of XCX2 or...

    RolStoppable said: JWeinCom said: Well, if it's a subjective matter, then I guess there's no sense in debating it. You caught on quickly. As a sidenote, curl endorses Bayonetta, but dismisses Astral Chain. You'd think that noteworthy similarities welcome similar judgment, but it's pushing subjectivity to a whole new level. To be honest, I completely forgot about...

The fact that my Wii is still working perfectly while my ps4 already broke even though I bought it years later. Amen. My SNES I got for Christmas in 1994 still works, as does my N64 from Christmas 1998. ...
