Nintendo Super NES Classic mini review

iamnormal

7 months ago

I was all smug with my original SNES which I've had since release...until last week my dog ran along and pulled it off the side via the controller cable. Now I have a broken SNES and the Mini is a rip off. Going to get a raspberry Pi I think.

The Machines may be Apple's most impressive augmented-reality showcase yet

I don't like the concept of holding my phone out to a table to generate a fake world on top of it, why not just play in full VR? It's not augmenting anything as far as I can see.

Microsoft is remastering Age of Empires for PC

iamnormal

my memory of this game is of completing the whole thing and then playing an online or networked game (can't remember which), creating an army far too early and getting accused of cheating by everyone ("there's no way you'd create an army now unless you were cheating") on the server and then getting kicked off... just for being crap at it. My poor 15 year old self.

@Raizing I don't know...I thought I had automatic updates on. It seems to be the games more than anything. The other day all my saved games got corrupted and I had to spend an hour on the phone to MS support to fix it. Haven't bothered with it since.

I read this with interest thinking "may be I should buy one" and then when I finished I remembered that every single time I find an hour to play my xbox I spend the first 20 minutes updating the console, the game and / or the controller! It's ridiculous.

I find the UI a complete nightmare. I'm very much a casual player and may be only find an hour a week to play on the xbox and it isn't simple enough for me. They should have an 'old man' version which just let's me do the basic stuff.

I don't know why they don't throw in say 5 classics with the console. May be 1xnes 2xsnes 1xn64 1xgame cube game. Highlight how the old games work and can be taken on the go, get people interested in downloading them etc. They won't of course, but they should.

Another idea would be to identify rage quitters and then make it so if they play a one-player game the computer just rage quits if it looks like losing every time.

Rage quitters should only be matched with other rage quitters until they stop their rage quitting ways. It's the only way they'll learn.

@fmj77 Why do you think you're just defining science or biology? You're certainly not making any sense and mentioning things that do make sense whilst not really linked to anything that you're talking about doesn't seem to win any argument for yourself.
