Too many accessories that shouldn't be there to begin with for a console that is yet to be released.

And the why don't the joy-cons come with the straps like the wiimotes?!

Super Mario Run only playable with an internet connection

Oceanstar

The Mashable article did include an elaboration from Moyamoto explaining that unlike their gaming systems, this game will be available in 150+ countries and Nitendo doesnt have experience in many of these countries.

I think they've taken a safe route on this one until they guarantee it is safe at which point they might release an update removing the online requirement.

I think for their purposes they could do with a system that periodically 'pings' the server to check the authenticity of the game rather than requiring a constant connection.

@Hellotherenow Geeralising all Japanese devs to be untalented show biased view and opinions and thereby inability to criticise fairly.

Yes Japanese devs have moved at a slower state but they've had their innovations in design (Dark Souls online multiplayer system) and in development talent Metal Gear 5 is far more stable than most western 'AAA' games.

Don't forget Nintendo as a developer. The consistent quality with which they're games run (the ones they developed in house not published) is simply unmatched. Saying that 'its because they have more access to their hardware' is moot because we see Sony and Microsoft are unable to have the same consistency on their hardware.

Having a new way of controlling a game just for the sake of innovation hasn't worked, that Kinect Steel Battalion game and the long forgotton SNES Glove controller are some of many examples

Dark Souls 3 review

@UncleLou I played the JP release and with all honesty this is easier than DS1. It does pick up into the final third of the game but by that time you have lots of areas to farm souls and upgrade weapons. Unlike the the situation of the bloody Capra Demon. Too difficult too early in the game

Face-Off: Dark Souls 3

Oceanstar

2 years ago

Right. Lets be clear. Japanese versions for PS4 and X1 are complete. 'international' version of X1 is not complete which is why you cannot play online and is 'easier' for reviewers. PC English version played by streamers is also most likely incomplete (not confirmed).

Whats new now is that a March 29th update is set to arrive with two fixes which I wont mention to avoid spoilers, and most impprtantly optimisations to performance when the game is played offline.

It seems the game is continually searching for a connection in the background which hampers performance. The game is more stable online as a result because the game doesnt need to do the search.

This is important because the 'international' X1 version is offline. Meaning the game could be improved ahead of a western release.

@null Just to clarify the 'english' xbox one version which people dowloaded after buying the Japanese is the one not final. The Japanese X1 abd PS4 version are updated. This can be confirmed when looking at both X1 versions which are different. Japanese is 1.01 and the English version is 1.0. The english one at the moment is an easier version to help reviewers and does not support online multiplayer

As some people here pointed out and other impressions, it seems that the Vita version is not optimised with loading times and fluctuating frame rates. Japanese players are less vocal about theae thinga. SE seems to be in no mood to put in resources to optimise a code that will be played by a significantly smaller base than Japan. They've clearly used sug resource to port to PC. Tis a shame but thus is reality

@Kaminari the article made it sound like the patch 'prepares' for the dlc but yes 9gb couldnt have been just new NPCs and weapons.

On a related note, Sony charged my preorder. Does anyone know when on the 24th is the content unlocked.

QA has really become an issue with Sony and Microsoft greenlighting clearly broken games for release with the hope that developers will fix it with a patch, or ten. Noticed that Nintendo, and some other Japanese publishers on the otherhand take care of QA. Look at Atlus with Persona 5
