  • There's an official football-themed PS4 controller

  • Nikanoru 10/08/2017

    From the comments I'd have expected that to look much worse than it actually does. Like maybe this but in football form: https://assets.pcmag.com/media/images/538920-ps2-dragon-quest-xi-slime-controller.jpg?thumb=y&width=740&height=417

    Was Minecon popular anymore? I only remember the first one where they "released" minecraft 1.0 so I don't know on how large a scale this is going to piss people off, if at all. Reply 0

    @PyD That's the weirdest thing I've ever seen someone ascribe to "technology limitations". Lives were simply common game design at the time. They were already pretty much a formality by the time SMB3 came around. Reply +1

    This only works if the game isn't super long, and replayable. Like Breath of Fire V (which was the last game in the series... RIP BoF). There has to be some sort of mechanic to change things on the next playthrough if you do suffer permadeath.

    (edit: LOL I'd love to hear what exactly in that post needed to be downvoted??? People are weird man.)

  • Creator of canned Metroid fan project AM2R hired to work on Ori sequel

  • Nikanoru 07/08/2017

    @Turniplord There certainly is motive. Just look at the response to this news. It is entirely possible they hired him to draw in AM2R fanboys who will flock to this new game out of a misplaced sense of rebellion against evil old Ninty (that, or simply loyalty to the guy). In fact, statistically speaking that aspect will benefit them much, much more than simply hiring an unknown person of similar skill ever would. Reply -1
  • Nikanoru 07/08/2017

    @BellyFullOfHell Let's be totally honest with ourselves here: AM2R was amateurish at best. The best parts of it were things taken straight from existing metroid games, such as the controls/movement or the ripped graphics for example (which stand in stark contrast to the low quality of what little custom art there is). To even suggest it might be better than Samus Returns would be delusional.

    (ooh seems like I've got someone on my ass downvoting all of my comments. :D Hi guy, sorry you can't handle the truth.)

    Are the complaints coming from highly skilled players who want to 'solve' the game and win flawlessly every time?
    Probably hit the nail on the head there. "Ragers" as we like to call them.

    And the price for the figurines is average for this size and type.

    So... concept art and sound test options mostly, no actual game content. Big deal? You don't need any of them to "play my game grrrr".

    I don't remember the outrage when Skylanders and Disney Infinity did basically lock the entire game behind figures.

  • Nintendo Switch shipped an impressive 4.7m in four months

  • Nikanoru 26/07/2017

    There's one thing worse than a fanboy on gaming forums: a hateboy. They are really the most pathetic thing. :lol:

    It's one thing to really really like something to a degree that others might find unreasonable. It's something else entirely to let yourself be defined by what you hate, instead. There are many people here who consistently visit every single Nintendo thread, like vultures, to spout their dislike and silly bullshit arguments time and time again.

    Why the hell would you want to do that? How pathetic is it that you're so full of bitterness toward a certain product and/or its fans that you become so obsessive with your negativity?

  • The Witcher 3 can still look prettier as impressive new mod shows

  • Nikanoru 21/07/2017

    So right away, the very first comparison: the stones on the building look WORSE. It just adds more normal mapping to a rock surface that already had the exact right amount for the type of rock it was, making it look unrealistic compared to the original.

    Same goes for many other things in the video. Granted, some stuff does look better, but that doesn't matter if the other half of it ends up ruining the original graphics (and as such, the entire look of the game).

    Either you do it consistently or you don't do it at all. This is why game studios have art directors.

    And it's why fan mods suck more often than not. Most of the time, people just have no idea what they're doing.

  • SFANS portable dock for Nintendo Switch review

  • Nikanoru 18/07/2017

    @spekkeh This really puts everyone who cried like a baby about the official dock's price to shame, doesn't it.

    And also the setup of this unofficial dongle looks utterly stupid. The photo where it's in the stand with the thing hanging out of it - hateboys would go absolutely berserk if Nintendo had released that.

    Face it, there is nothing wrong with the dock. Even the fact that it covers the screen has a purpose: it's a very clear visualization that the tablet's screen is not (and cannot be) used during TV play.

  • Nikanoru 13/07/2017

    @shinku LOL I'm tired of dealing with your ignorant shit.

    You're linking to a video of someone running in circles in a single spot where there's hiccups. Framerate drops were isolated to spots like that. When I say "90% locked 30" before the patch, learn what the fuck that means, mate. I'll spell it out to you like you're six years old because apparently you need it: it means that, on average, during every 10 minutes the game runs at a solid 30, you get 1 minute where it doesn't. But in practice, it wouldn't even drop that often. You could ride the fields for a long time without ever encountering a drop, and in the areas without foliage such as desert etc, there weren't any drops at all.

    Learn basic elementary school math, ok?

    Or don't, and stay a dumbshit forever.

  • Nikanoru 13/07/2017

    @shinku Mate, get a fucking clue.

    Look at your own goddamn DF video and count how many seconds the line dips down below the 30 line, as opposed to how many seconds it actually stays flat. Even a fucking idiot like you can do that, can you? Count?

    And now imagine the actual drops throughout the game before the patch were much, much rarer than even that, because this only occurred in select spots.

    And then, fuck off.

    "The thing is that in odrer to call the Switch "the most technically capable handheld console ever launched" it should outperform 7th gen systems by far. From what i've seen so far, that is not the case."

    That's an oddly arbitrary measure. For it to be the most technically capable handheld console ever it has to be the most technically capable handheld console ever, which it is by some distance. How it performs compared to other home consoles isn't all that relevant.
    No idea why you're getting downvoted for this simple statement of facts. Some of these people are wrong in the head.

    @shinku
    Before the patch it was a 30 lock 90% of the time. After the patch the drops have been reduced to practically nothing. Fact.

    Whatever videos you saw cherrypicked moments out of the game and compiled them all in one place, for testing purposes or otherwise. If you look at those compiled few moments out of a 200+ hour game and conclude from that that the game "ran like crap" then you've got some serious bias, or you just don't understand statistics.

    @kosmic2561
    There were games made that run on both (Black carts to my memory)
    had exclusive only games and not dual compatibility games,
    Did you read my previous post? It had mostly exclusive only games. Dual compatible games were in the far minority and died out after a while. Dual compatibility games were like the GBC games that also had extra features when played on the GBA. But we still call the GBA a next-gen console. Because most of its games were exclusive as well.

    N3DS and other newer half-way consoles have practically no exclusive games in comparison. Because the differences don't warrant it. Developers have not shifted over to the new version like they did with the GBC, because they are not next-gen consoles, there is not much to be gained from making games exclusively for the hardware, and there is no expectation that the audience has or will fully migrate to it eventually. All areas where the GBC differs greatly.

    Maybe you need some visual assistance. Here is a GB game:

    @Jac In case you didn't know, you can make ice blocks in those puddles, and this is how you get up to those unreachable tree platforms.
    Also some of those random guardian remains you find sitting suspiciously on a flat piece of ground, a puddle will form there when it rains and you can make an ice block under them to turn them over and get a bunch of free guardian parts (more than just the one you get from examining).

    You can also push them over with a metal object, if one is nearby.

    Considering the stuff he says and has said in the past, it's very likely that, no, he doesn't. :P And then gets very angry at the game as a result.

    He is trying incredibly, incredibly hard to squeeze out absolutely everything and anything he can possibly find to complain about with this game, not just here but on most other BotW related articles as well. I have no idea what the hell is wrong with him.

    @blankcanvas Ahhh no BotW article would be complete with a classic Blankcanvas post. Like the other guy said, the majority of your points are your own weird, personal grievances. You keep adding to your list with nonsensical bullshit I've never heard anyone complain about, such as the thing about the travelers for example (seriously what the hell kind of a weirdass complaint is that??? Yiga clan members are immediately recognizable if you have half a brain, they're the only people who stand beside the road whimpering, and they're exceedingly rare compared to normal travelers so what's with the "almost always want to kill you" nonsense?), and you end with your stupid Transformers comment.

    But it also subtly changes the binary of older 3D games; of the traversable, and then the unknowable, unreachable rest.
    Precisely what describes my feelings on all open-world sandbox games in general, tbh. It has pros and cons. But alas, modern gaming demands it.

    it's lasting legacy

    Wind Waker WiiU didn't feel right for me
    There's something off about it, isn't there? The original had the perfect balance of colours and effects to look like a beautiful cartoon. The remaster just threw a generic lighting model onto a game that was never designed for it. It just looks worse.

    And yet it's the version you always tend to see whenever the game comes up in an article or video, just because it's newer and HD. It's a bit sad.

    @OnlyJoeKing Don't you know, every time Nintendo re-releases a game, they send people to your house to personally delete and/or smash any existing copies you already own.

    This is why a lot of people cry about Nintendo so much. They've been visited by the Men in Black.

  • Nikanoru 14/07/2017

    The "tragically" low pixel density actually provides somewhat of a last bastion for proper 1:1 resolution pixel art games. Once the 3DS line is gone completely, every other such game is going to have to make do with double/quadruple size pixels that'll always look worse in some way. Reply +5
