  • Zelda and Sheik are separate Smash Bros. characters due to 3DS limitations

  • TPoppaPuff 01/10/2014

    Some thoughts:
    -There's no reason both versions have to have identical rosters.

    -Combination characters always bothered me as they always seemed like two/three gimped characters. I prefer separating the characters out tbh.

    -Blaming the lack of CPP support on lack of CPU power is asinine. How much processing power does it take up? 1% max? That's like saying DriveClub couldn't add steering wheel support because it took up too much processing power. They're just trying to sell new 3DSes.

    -As many reviews have stated, 4 player is too chaotic because it makes the characters themselves too hard to see when the camera gets pulled back which is too often. If that's the case, why isn't there just a cap on how far back the camera can pull? It's not like two-four people are playing off a single 3DS screen.

    I don't think the 3DS version was all that well thought out. Also, since they parity between both versions so hard, there should be a bundle with both included at a heavy discount.

  • Face-Off: Bayonetta on Wii U

  • TPoppaPuff 30/09/2014

    I'm not going to shit on Nintendo because it's pointless and honestly my favorite game this year has been Mario Kart 8 (sorry, Titanfall, Watch Dogs and Destiny, the fun just doesn't last). I will say however, I really wish the Wii U's CPU was at least as strong as the 360's because then it would be a heck of a lot easier for devs to justify a Wii U port of their games, which would possibly mean more games.

  • Battlefield Hardline launches with nine maps and seven modes

  • TPoppaPuff 30/09/2014

    Not interested in multiplayer that essentially looks and sounds like an average fan-made total conversion mod. All this work could be alright if it was BF4 DLC, but that's it. The campaign might be OK, but it sure as hell isn't worth $60. That's absurd. Reply +8
  • Project Cars shooting for 1080p 60fps on both Xbox One and PS4

  • TPoppaPuff 30/09/2014

    I'm not excited for the game, but this is the first one in a while I'll consider buying. I'm not a frame snob by any means but 60fps is an absolute must for racing games. If the reviews are good I'll check it out. Reply +1
  • Someone's found a new loot farming cave in Destiny

    This cave is literally only about a third as productive at best. Possibly closer to a fourth or fifth as productive.

    Also, Legendary Engrams in your inventory will be demoted to Rare ones once the patch goes live, so Bungie suggests you get these decoded while you can. "But let's be honest - even if you don't, we all know they were blues already," the developer said.

    @funkateer OK, well I don't know him personally, but publically, he acted like a hypocritical douche. Publicly speaking, he's a hypocritical douche.

    If I were in his situation I wouldn't have called out Oculus in the first place. It was not his place to pass judgement and to make it known.

    If I had $2.5 billion dollars on top of the other 100-500 million I had before that, I would probably apologize.

    Let's not give someone the benefit of the doubt when acting like a douche just because they're a billionaire. Let's try to hold people responsible for their actions and public words.

  • TPoppaPuff 15/09/2014

    @funkateer I do have a clue though because he went on to publicly state he refused to work with them because of the deal. This wouldn't be an issue if he didn't go out and trumpet his own horn on his relatively large soapbox (Minecraft had tens of millions of sales when he made that announcement). It is a situation he made us fully aware of.

    So yes, self-entitled internet warrior who doesn't recognize the irony here, I will call him out on his bullshit. If he didn't make it known to us, he wouldn't be called out by me for it.

    So it's official: Notch is a hypocrite for what he did to Palmer Luckey and the guys at Oculus Rift and stands to be one until he apologizes. He called them sellouts and swore off Rift support because of a false assumption he made. Turns out Facebook has been nothing but helpful expediting the process of getting VR in the consumers' hands.

    The Oculus team were a ragtag group of upstarts (and John Carmac) pulling just enough to keep going towards pushing a dream and sold their company to someone who held that same vision. Notch, the bloated overhyped producer of the most lucrative game since Angry Birds, chastises them for doing what's best for their dream of quality VR. So then what does Notch, who was already one of the one percent years before this sale went through, goes and completely sells out his own company for (relatively) a little more than what Palmer sold his company for. Why did he sell it? For the money only. Does he give a shit about the game or the future of the company? Hell no. He just proved it. He only cares about the money, something he already more of than what he knew what to do with.

    I understand people have changes of heart and so forth and I do not hold it against him for selling the company or selling it to Microsoft. With that said, he should apologize to Oculus and honestly to the gamers as well for acting holier than thou when the truth was the opposite. What I hold against him is his attitude and his hypocrisy. That is all.

    He's irrefutably a hypocritical douche until apologies are made.

  • Microsoft to buy Mojang for $2 billion - report

  • TPoppaPuff 11/09/2014

    @Bickle2
    Even once the price points were matched the sales have still favored PS4 month by month since then. It's hardly artificial. People might make a bigger deal out of it than they ought to, but it is a very tangible difference in sales numbers.

    I never intended to infer you agreed with what I was saying, simply that you understood what I saying.

    With that said, saying Minecraft will sell way more consoles is to my point that it's not in MS's best interest to continue supporting Minecraft on PS4.

  • TPoppaPuff 10/09/2014

    @Bickle2 Yeah there's probably a contract to support it for at least the first couple months but then after that the first chance MS gets they will drop support for it. And why should they keep supporting it? They would be digging their own grave. Reply 0

    @Britesparc Microsoft has to support Office on Apple products. That was a settlement made decades ago between Apple and MS. I suspect it would be in Microsoft's best interest to lose what small percentage of Office sales they get from Macs if it returned a greater percentage of people over to Windows. A fair amount of people and companies and students would follow Office if it was no longer available on Macs. Reply +1
  • TPoppaPuff 10/09/2014

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    But if he does, I think this makes Notch one of the top five biggest douches in the history of gaming. To criticize and chastise and publicly scorn one start up, who to date were had not released a product nor had any solid income off any products, for "selling out" to one company that has not interfered with the original vision and has actually boosted progress of that initial vision, only then to later sell out to someone else for the same amount even though they are already incredibly wealthy with a solid stream of income from a product makes for about the scummiest person in the gaming business.

    He's innocent until proven guilty, but if he is guilty of this, he's an incredible douche.

    @Laryd1985 It's not the selling out part that rational people have a problem with, it's the part where he becomes a huge hypocrite.

  • TPoppaPuff 10/09/2014

    When you buy something, you expect a certain level of quality. This game, however, isn't done yet. Early Access games means you're investing in something. Investments are always inherently rocky and uncertain and if you're not willing to go through the trials of investment you shouldn't be investing.

    With all that said, why is this news? "People complain about video game on video game's forums. A developer from the game responds." Shouldn't there be thousands of these stories daily if that's news?

    @Kremlik I get what you're trying to say, but I don't think re-skinning Dynasty Warriors with Zelda characters is innovation. Call me a pessimist, but I don't see the artistic integrity in creating a cash grab.

    If you want real innovation for a Zelda title, why not let Retro go nuts and let them design it as they please?

    @AvatarIII And by the time 4K is reasonable at a consumer grade price for phone sized screens you will say that is in incapable of matching PC quality visuals and that you will wait until they come up with 16K screens.

    1440p, screen door pattern reducing style rgb configuration may very well be sufficient.

  • TPoppaPuff 03/09/2014

    In truth I think Nintendo should be investing quite heavily into VR for their next platform. They've got the stable of franchises to draw interest, creativity to make new and unique experiences, back catalog that can be (relatively) easily retrofitted to fill out the library, and the strict adherence to maintaining performance necessary for VR.

    @JuniorSophitia It did take 6-7 years for Sony to finally reach market parity with Microsoft worldwide. Those blunders were disastrous for them. And with even that said, they still lost the majority of the markets vs 360. The PS3 financial saving grace was Japan, an undisputed market that accounted for a huge, significant portion of sales.

    This generation could return to the typical 5 year cycle if the economies ever recover.

    @JuniorSophitia

    It may be construed that way, but for the PS4 to truely be 44% more powerful it needs to pump out a 44% better framerate and 44% better IQ whilst at the same time maintain it's 44% resolution advantage.
    Simple logic and simple math says that statement is completely wrong. Regardless of whatever "44% better IQ" is supposed to mean (AI? Physics?) you're asking for significantly more output.

    Your Xbox One output:
    1*1*1=1
    Your "Truly 44% more powerful" output:
    1.44*1.44*1.44=2.986
    That's almost three times more power requirement!

    Now obviously resolution isn't the end-all be-all of the argument and is only part of output comparison between consoles, but you're statement is pure lunacy.

  • Metro Redux: what it's really like to develop for PS4 and Xbox One

  • TPoppaPuff 29/08/2014

    @INSERT-COIN lol OK. Maybe you should actually know what you said rather than what you think is being discussed. I, nor most likely anyone else except yourself and maybe Darkwaknight, knew of your long history back and forth arguments with each other over the merits of a speed increase due to unified memory architecture. If you had meant that actively sharing blocks of memory between CPU and GPU is slower than designating memory to each processor then next time I suggest that you actually say that rather than have everyone else here have to decipher what you meant to say.

    I corrected you on what you said, not what you apparently meant.

    And lastly, that article tells me the bandwidth going to the CPU is not as fast as the GPU. I do not know the specific reason as there are many possibilities, but I am not going to assume that it is simply because the memory is shared either. There's no proof of that. You see an effect and assume a cause. Maybe the issue is that it's an APU rather than separate processors. Maybe it is the fact that it's unified. Maybe the bottleneck is the CPU. You have drawn your own conclusions based on the outcome without any evidence.

  • You can't trade items with other players in Destiny

  • TPoppaPuff 29/08/2014

    @OmegaNemesis28 No I'm not talking semantics. I'm talking about a halfassed excuse for why something's not in the game. Twitch is a different "story" than what he was talking about. That isn't semantics. Twitch is not what he meant by the words that he said.

    "Oh you like trucks? My uncle owns a Boeing 747." That's the same thing. Semantics right? :rolleyes:

    You know what else you can do in MMOs? You see something you like, you ask them what it is, then you trade for it or buy it off an auction house.

    Regardless of whether you believe the decision to add or remove trading is fair. You're allowed to have you're own opinions and preference. I will not however, listen to you defend their decision with illogical, incoherent nonsense. In no way, shape or form did they ever mean watching people livestreaming. If you want to defend the decision that's fine, but don't attribute out-of-left-field, clearly-not-what-they-meant meanings to their statements.

    @Tiergaertner I wouldn't go that far. There was more content in the Destiny beta than there is in all of Titanfall.

    Titanfall has pretty much already taken it's crown as most disappointing game of the year or most overhyped game of the year. Just think about how many best of E3 awards it won last year. Now how many game of the year awards is it going to win? How many will even have it top three or even top five?

    @OmegaNemesis28 Really? A silly assumption? Because that's the exact same phrase they've used before in their initial reveals of the game. They've used every weapon tells a story mantra before. They have never mentioned streaming. They have never said, "Oh, this gun? Check out my Twitch channel." Which, btw, your logic doesn't make sense. If you have to watch a Twitch stream to see how they got that weapon, how do you know what weapon they get before they have it? So you watch the end of the video first then skip back? That's not very helpful on live streams now is it? Your theory doesn't hold. Your silly translation is just a poor excuse. They meant what they said.

    No, the things they want you to say are "It was owned by a group of survivalists operating on the new frontier." And that's not a made up quote, that's from Destiny Art Lead, Tom Doyle. They want people to sit there and ask how and where you got that weapon. "A badge of honor," and other such nonsensical rhetoric.

    Also, I don't see why they wouldn't allow you to trade. It's garbage. You can trade in pretty much any other open game allows you to. WoW, SWTOR, Diablo, etc, etc, etc. even Borderlands.
