  • How to triple your Switch battery life for under 20

  • Nikanoru 25/03/2017

    @sloth09
    It's forcing you to either carry a bag or wear clothes with large, reinforced pockets if you're going to be away from the mains for more than 3 hours.
    Large, reinforced pockets? For something that's smaller than the switch's screen itself, and in fact doesn't look any bigger than your average smart phone?

    Just like any smartphone, it seems extremely obvious where you'd put something like this while playing. The cord is long enough. You don't have to take it out and "balance"(?) it anywhere.

  • Wonder Boy 3 remake introduces new playable lead: Wonder Girl

  • Nikanoru 25/03/2017

    @marcustenghult Haha, MLP? Seriously? I don't think you remember how terribly and cheaply animated that show was (same goes for most 2005 cartoons). The exact opposite of Wonder Boy.

    The Wonder Boy remake has proper animation, like you'd get from 80s or early 90s animated movies.

    Of course, that kind of thing is very labour-intensive and requires some actual professional talent. It's much cheaper to get a kid from deviantart to draw a sprite and then squash and stretch it a bit in photoshop.

    @BellyFullOfHell True to a degree, but one bad situation I can think of is when people start chastising creators for having a main character that happens to be male. Like what happened some time before launch with Zelda. All of a sudden Aonuma was a villain for having you play as Link in a Zelda game.

    Looking at situations like that, I hope you can see where some of the push-back comes from.

    @marcustenghult The Monster Boy game looks vastly inferior. Just look at the player character rendering and "animation" in your video alone. It looks like an early 2000's flash game made by a teenager. I'm sure they did their best and I respect that... but it is what it is.

    Wonder Boy on the other hand, is on an entirely different level. One glance at mere seconds of gameplay will show you immediately that these are actual professional animators. This is the kind of stuff we always hoped platformers would be in the future, sprites that looked like they came straight out of a TV cartoon.

    With the advent of polygonal games that never ended up happening. Until now!

    "Trap" haha get it... sorry.

    This needs way more attention. Real proper cartoon animation in a 2D game, and damn good animation too. Unlike a lot of the somewhat cheap looking auto-tweened paper doll business we see nowadays.

    Just look at all the people in this thread moaning about having to buy Nintendo hardware. But that's their business model, they make both games and hardware and this practice is just fucking them over however you cut it.
    One of the most succinct and accurate summaries of the whole situation that I've read lately tbh.

  • How Zelda and Horizon fix open worlds in very different ways

  • Nikanoru 22/03/2017

    People complaining about breakable weapons in Zelda are so goddamn funny. As if you ever run out!

    If anything, they don't break fast enough! I constantly find myself looking for excuses to clear out my inventory by breaking them, because it's ALWAYS full. It's like expending ammo in a shooter so you can pick up more of it (nobody complains about consumable ammo in shooters - that would be silly). With the rate you get these weapons, it is literally impossible to run out. And it's not like enemy drops have worse stats, if anything they tend to drop some of the better stuff.

    It's an utterly stupid complaint. It fits with a drooling idiot like Sterling, who is just reaching for anything to complain about.

  • Everything is the most ambitious catalogue of things ever committed to a video game

  • Nikanoru 21/03/2017

    ...broadens the definition of what a video game can be,
    Whenever you hear this, you know what's coming: not a videogame.

    This looks neat, but it looks like it's just a toy. I don't understand this obsession with changing words and what they mean. Toys are toys, games are games. It's fine to call things what they are. Why wouldn't it be?

  • Nikanoru 20/03/2017

    @Yaster Sterling is a childish, pretentious, pathetic fuck with serious issues. The main reason he reviews anything is if he thinks he can grab attention without much effort. That's why he often goes after extremely easy and obvious targets like shitty asset flips on Steam that no normal person with a life would usually bat an eyelid at (and then revels in the attention when one shitty dev tries to sue him). Or makes videos with titles like "why it's totally morally ok to pirate all of Nintendo's games". His opinion on Zelda as such isn't even worth talking about.

    I guess you just have to feel sorry for him as he probably has major self-esteem issues with that body and face of his...

    (edit: Oooh, jim sterling defenders? Is there really such a thing? LOL! Talk about rock bottom! :D)

    @JudgeMethos Threads like this are always infested with sad limp-dicked little shits who just come here to try to bash on something, so they can feel less terrible about what losers they actually are.

  • Blaster Master Zero: Switch vs... NES?

  • Nikanoru 19/03/2017

    @dark10x Right? It really put me off of that game. There's one game type you can actually say always needs to be 60fps minimum, and that's scrolling 2D. Reply 0
  • Nikanoru 19/03/2017

    This runs at 30 fps on the 3DS? That makes no sense, at all. To get that framerate for a game like this on a handheld that runs Resident Evil Revelations, they'd have to do something like create a virtual machine that runs the engine that runs the remake of the NES game. Or some such bullshit. Reply +1

  • Nikanoru 17/03/2017

    @Rathbone As someone who last finished an FPS without a mouse when the N64 was still alive, I ask the same about modern controllers. No idea how you can possibly aim and move with Xbox/PS controls without waving around like a drunk.

    But I can pick up an N64 controller and Quake 2 right now, and kick ass. It's just what you're used to, it's all relative. For me the N64 still has the best FPS control pad ever made.

    I had the expansion pack but the game would still turn into a slideshow regularly.
    Actually you'll find that it was because of the expansion pack that the framerate was lowered, at least if you chose high-res mode. :p The expansion pack just added 4MB ram to allow for a larger framebuffer, nothing else.

  • Switch loading times tested: MicroSD vs carts and internal storage

  • Nikanoru 16/03/2017

    @Wayne SNES games, a "few dozen" MB? I won't fault you for not knowing, but that just sounds funny to me. :P The most epic SNES adventures such as Chono Trigger came on a whopping 4 MByte cart (or 32 Mbit which sounded more impressive, maybe that was what you meant? In that case the notation would be Mb). A SNES game of a "few dozen MB" would have been beyond belief.

    Hell, that would have been a lot for an N64 game, Mario 64 sat at about 10MB iirc.

  • Breath of the Wild shows Nintendo is learning from PC games

    @MagiusMagnus Eh, I don't really miss it. Maybe if there was more of a system attached like where fish are graded by weight and you could catch rare ones etc (which I would've liked to see, but you can't have everything). But as it stands, they're only recipe ingredients, and as such trying to fish for them would just feel a bit slow tbh.

    edit: that said I haven't finished it either, far from it, so who knows if a rod is in there somewhere.

  • Nikanoru 15/03/2017

    Wow, they've really been good at selling bullshit haven't they? All news outlets have been parroting the "remastered" claim, leading many people to believe they're getting Ducktales HD style remakes, but this is no such thing. These are just plain ports of the original NES games, there is NOTHING hd or 1080p about them.

    Also it's weird that these are on everything but Switch, considering they are NES games.

    You seem completely ignorant on the subject yet you come in here chastising one of the biggest game developers in the industry like they're a bunch of newbs and you know it all.

  • Nintendo says Switch dead pixels "normal", not a defect

    @PickleJuice
    EDIT: also why this is "flaming" up on the internet is probably because the reddites couldn't immediately exchange their Switch in the shops because it is sold out everywhere.
    Nah mate, nah. People don't need a real reason to sit in a circle and jerk each other off chanting "FUCK NINTENDO" and "SEGA SHOULD HAVE WON" lol. All they need is a nice little clickbait headline.

    It's filthy and pathetic, but hey, that's what Nintendo haters are like. :)


    I'm pretty sure nobody here actually has a dead pixel, and none of the whiners actually have a switch. It's just bellowing and nothing else. Fucking hilarious.

    Clearly if you love NES and you want a super sexy dedicated machine that you can get the cart, give it a sniff and a rub and then place it in... enjoy that experience,
    If you like that sort of thing, you'd get a NES. Any other case, you use an emulator which has all the extras you'd ever want. This device is pointless and stupid.
