Will the Pen lead to Art Academy bring a 10 million sellers in their next game?!?! Stay tuned for next time on DRAGON. BALL. Z!!!

Dee da dee da da da da do da


The Art Academy software would be something I'd be interested in. I'm typically negative about the Wii U, but Art Academy was one of the 3 or 4 things on the console I actually enjoyed quite a lot.

I also really enjoyed the Brain Training games, and the model was hugely influential on gaming spawning off an entirely new genre with Casual Games (and I mean the actual genre of games where you play in few minute sessions at least once a day, and keep coming back to it over long periods of time; rather than the "game forum" version of it, which pretty much means games made for retarded people).

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Around the Network

I actually enjoy the Sketch minigame from Game&Wario, one of the few titles that forces me to boot up the WiiU during Christmas.

You know if I necrobumped a three and a half year old thread, I'd get banned.

Have you ever read the Forum Rules?

I did about a decade ago.

I wonder if they could theoretically bring out an active pen like the Apple Pencil. Not that that would make any business sense, since any kind of good drawing stylus is going to cost around 100$, and no ones going to pay that for an accessory, but it would be an amazing beginner tool for artists. Embarrassingly enough for an artist, I don’t know much about how pen technologies actually work under the hood.

I mean, Wacoms technology is basically all in the screen as far as I know and the pen acts more like a passive sensor and gets activated by the signal the display is sending out, sort of like nfc-technology. So if a screen isn’t build with that technology, it will never work with a Wacom pen. Active pens seem to have more tech inside the actual pencil, so a simple software update might be enough to make a device compatible, but I‘m not too sure on that.

Uhh, sorry for the off-topic ramble, but that Nintendo patent made me think about a more proper stylus design.
