Why didn't Nintendo make a 3D version of the original Donkey Kong Country, or even Donkey Kong Country 2? Pic related would have worked. Hell, I'd accept a HD release of either game. It worked for Wind Waker, so why not DKC?

Instead Nintendo made the same mistake it did with Starfox Adventures and the New Super Mario Bros. series: making a great game that doesn't live up to its predecessor. These games should have been great stand-alone titles, because they are great, but they're also pale shadows of DKC, Star Fox, and Mario. So I hate them.

Better enemy. Sonic, and Crash Bandicoot. Master Chief etc. All old. Sonic in a motorised wheelchair with spindash. Or the Donkey Kong era game enemies.

So, Final Fantasy Thirteen Three.
I'll be arsed if I know what the story's about, but the battle system has me a bit interested. The best way I can describe it is like an amalgam of FF12's 'encounters from map' with a dash of Valkryie Profile/Xenosaga 'abilities mapped to face buttons', but more action-RPG. You have different Schemata (jobs, but as this is FFXIII they have to be smug and call it something exotic) which determine what actions you can do at any one time, and you can switch between them on the fly.

I heard the 3 13s are coming to PC. If that's true i'll be applying nude mods.
13-2 wasn't really playable on PS3, not enough performance.

I hear 13-3 has towns. Main attraction of FFfor me. Just going somewhere and staying in an inn. I'm sure that's why all play RPGs. To see the world.

I take it the combat is swapping from heal mode to build up chain mode to exploit chain mode, to withstand attack mode, repeat. One character shoud free up processing time enough to spend it on awsomeness.

I didn't go far into XIII 2 and skipped all the cutscenes, same bar the first few for XIII, I got near the end for XIII or maybe I finished it and skipped the end cutscene. Anyway it's all lame. Too dumb for kids.

The environment isn't, it's beautiful. Pity it's attached to bad storytelling and reappropriation shit that is a constant from Japan.

Select attack is a bad system. A myriad of abilities to execute instantaenously is what should be the playstyle. No seperation from battle and world. Enemies using the terraon, climbing over things so you do too. Enemies could even lead you. Big ones teaching you to navigate the terrain in pursuing it, picking you up if you get stuck and moving you where you should have gone like a joke. Enemies with personality, and scars.

Japs really need to get over their killing bunnies thing. Grow some empathy.

I liked The Spirits Within when it came out.

Advent Children was a cash in. It's fan fiction as I see it. What happens when people try to take ownership, they get disconnected and they just don't get it.

FF7 was ok, I liked it more before I played it. 8 was wonderful bar some backstory explanation shit (orphanage).

I might just need to watch it again. 7 was precious to me and it had an ending so it going on or retold couldn't be good.

Could use a remake perhaps. Devs could make all the assets snd just do what seemed right. Stop fucking trying to please others. Just tell a story as it comes.

hl2 and portal now officially running natively on the nvidia shield


14/10/21(Tue)10:21 No. 143387 ID: 5d741c

Nice. Fuck HL2 though.

Shield Tablet is out now. But it's a shit design. Speakers 9" screen.
Just needs to be a screen. Say a 6" 1280x1024 screen with sticks on the side and buttons under the fingers. Or HMD & controller with buttons under fingers.

Should be. Isn't.

K1 in the tablet if used right is enough for 360 ports, but not easy ports, because the K1 isnt better in every way to 360's specs. And it's not like console devs want to make money by doing something right. Money just makes things shit.

Good the shield is getting something, Nvidia should be putting more effort in getting games onto it but like the Vita it's far supersceeded now.

The Shield tablet is the Shield 2.

For handhelds I think the standard res should be 100x100. Games could be supersampled 4x to make that work until post process aa can fix visuals to the same quality as ssaa.

I'm sure this is probably going to bring in bad new but.
So I just bought an acer 8735g with an nvidiagt240m and a intel 2 dual core processor, should I be worried about game play? I have a linksys e1200 router that clocks in at 5.6 Mbps down and 1.2 Mbps up. At 21-35 ping after 6 tests (with an outlier of 85 ping) I will be resetting the only other home computer so I can clear up some viruses after the laptop comes in.

I'm also planning on playing the new smash game for 3ds and playing project m on the smash boards.

How boned am I?

No need to bump after an hour, this is not niggertits.

What's the frequency on your processor? What's your RAM, what's the vram on your mobile graphics chip...oh wait it's a laptop, don't play on a laptop you'll fry it.

You can't upgrade a laptop, idjut

14/10/21(Tue)09:53 No. 143385 ID: 5d741c

What the fuck did you do that for?

Here's how it is with gpus:

The second number is what matters. It needs to be an 8. The second number indicates the performance of the card, about half of the next number up.

eg a gtx 870 is probably about half the performance of a gtx 880.

Nvidia rebrands like a graphics chip designer. The gtx 880m is a gtx 680m. No die shrink. Nothing.

rjtech.com seem an ok American supplier of clevo laptops.

If you're on the move a laptop is too big and heavy in my experience. Shame the shield tablet isn't a phone or it would be good value.

The GTX240 might be ok if you install microxp. Use windowblinds if you need a pretty UI. With some tweaking could play most 2007 and prior games with no aa at 640x480.

Do you guys like Bayonetta? Personally it was my favorite game this past generation, sadly I have a PS3 so I got the subpar port, but it still managed to be my favorite game. Excited as fuck for the sequel.

This is my second fav after NGB. Not as much replay value though. My wife cannot stand the repetitive jpop so I have to play on mute.

Never played it but I'm glad they decided to bundle the original game with the Bayonetta 2, otherwise I probably wouldn't even be interested.

I like capeshit and was looking forward to playing this on PC with my PS3 controller, just to mess around with single player and match up heroes/villains against each other, but every time I see the game mentioned "IT'S SHIT!"

Why tho? Guys don't realize how often DC release a decent game. It's not often.

14/10/18(Sat)16:19 No. 143366 ID: cf7294

Well you know it's not the best competitive fighter out there and therefore the fighting game community has rejected it. Oddly enough, most of those people will gleefully mash away at MvC3 instead. I guess people are just suckers for ridiculous combos and infinites.

I think the new Super Smash Brothers is... I don't want to say terrible, because overall I think it's a well designed game, but it just feels lazy.

I mean, there is so much reused shit from Brawl and the older editions. While I'll be the first to bitch that Brawl felt more like an expansion pack to Melee, I'd almost equate this to DLC. There are so many assets reused. Old characters have very little changes, same stages, same music, etc.

The only thing that they really added that I think is neat is the bit of character customization they allow but if this game is all they have accomplished in the 7 years they had since they finished Brawl, there is a lot of disappointment found.

And from what I can tell, I'm the only one who has this opinion. Most review sites seem like they either bought the hype or sold out, and all my friends are telling me that I don't know what I'm talking about. Anyone else shares this sentiment?

I'm not sure I know exactly what you mean but I do understand the bit about reused assets.
So much potential is gone. Dark Pit Dr. Mario and Lucina have no business being on the roster. All of them should have just been alts. There are alts that should have been in the game but aren't.
Where is the Dark Samus alt? Or one for Blood Falcon? Wolf alt at least? He had a nice twist on the old moveset, why'd he get cut out? Lucas could be the same as well. A Dixie Kong alt for Diddy would probably work...
I know not everyone's most wanted character can't be in. That disappoints me most.

14/10/12(Sun)13:57 No. 143292 ID: e371d1

I am overall satisfied. Lots of things to do, smash run is well done, online works well enough (didn't test international though) and I like the idea of omega levels. Plus, even just a port of Brawl on handheld would have sold it for me. It is absolutely not a waste of money.

That said, since Bowser Jr has all the koopalings as alternative skins, there's no frigging reason for Dr. Mario, fucking Toon Link and Lucina to be separate. As above poster pointed out, Dark Samus and Dixie Kong should have been obvious. I mean, I might have accepted the absence of alt skins, but Bowser Jr just makes it inexcusable.

Dark Pit, naturally, can get bent. There are two sorts of people in the world - those who don't care about Kid Icarus, and Sakurai. Christ.
