AVahne commented on Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Myster...:

Was just going to skip out on this game as I haven't played the Etrian Odyssey games before besides the demos and because I still need to finish Sorcery Saga on my Vita and Pokemon Red Mystery Dungeon on my GBA, but this is an insane deal. All the LE stuff PLUS additional stuff? For the same price?

Getting Wii U version because I can get the original Wii version with it.
Not gonna even touch this version. That framerate is atrocious; looks like a constant 15-20 FPS. Not very desirable for an arcade shooter type game. Probably playable, but just barely.

Tales of is mostly a Sony series nowadays, with Nintendo stuff barely getting any love. I don't expect any announcements for 3DS from this with Wii U definitely not getting anything.
Bammy can prove me wrong though.

@AyeHaley
However, putting up articles like that will only spark needless rumor and debate within the fan base and also outside of it as journalists out of the gaming industry may try to report on rumors with an even lesser understanding of the situation than actual industry journalists.
Do we really need to also have NintendoLife wallowing through all that carnage?

....well actually, maybe. As far as I know their job is to report on anything and everything related to Nintendo, even if vaguely. So, you'll probably see an article about it on the site soon, if not already.

@JaxonH
You're kidding right?
So you're saying going from a 720p screen to 1080p to even higher is smaller upgrade than New 3DS. And that going from Snapdragon S4 Pro, to Snapdragon 800, then 805 and now 810 is small? How about going from 1 GB RAM to 2 GB, 3 and 4?

The ignorance on this website is incredible....

@Morph
While I don't agree with the Dark Kirby person, I need to correct ya a bit. Don't compare handheld console revisions to major phone releases. Screens get better (sometimes MUCH better) as the tech gets cheaper to produce for each new phone. Batteries are similar, with them getting bigger capacity and more efficient as the tech develops.
Processors are usually a huge leap with each year's flagship SoCs; gaining higher speeds, graphics capabilities, and other things over their prrdecessors (especially when going to the latest available ARM architecture).

Doesnt work too well for some of us who have glasses, like the thicker ones. It's better than nothing at least and seems to somewhat work a bit in the dark, but honestly I find it a bit overrated.
Now, on the next handheld they seriously need higher resolution cameras, two cameras on the inside/front to track your entire face in 3D space, and much more powerful processors to actually be able to handle stable tracking.
For now I can't call this "Super Stable" 3D. It's more like "sometimes slightly stable (and only for a few seconds or minutes), but better than nothing" 3D.

Making new and unique ways to play is awesome, but don't use that as an excuse to make horribly weak hardware (3DS). And if you do something unique and revolutionary, make sure it's excellent the first time around.

AVahne commented on Interview: Nintendo's Hiro Yamada On The Chall...:

Hopefully this shuts up the naysayers who believe this port's exclusivity is some kind of conspiracy.
The old 3DS's ancient hardware is simply EXTREMELY weak by today's standard (actually, in retrospect, even by 2011's standards). It's not meant to handle this type of game.
The New 3DS hardware is also extremely weak, but it has the little extra oomph needed to make this port a possibility.
We should thank the wizards at Nintendo and Monster Games for making do with the limitations of the New 3DS to create this port. Remember, they're dealing with an ARM architecture from 2002 and an obscure GPU from 2006.

Had been considering getting it on Android back when it was on sale, but decided not to when I found out it was episodic.
If this remastered version includes all the episodes and gets released on Android as well, then I'll get it.

AVahne commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Actually, I think their work with DeNa for smart devices can be seen as their 'third pillar', as it's the third major platform they'll be supporting with their games and apps.
Hoping NX is a handheld with TV streaming capability.

I'd like to see a Fire Emblem game developed for mobile. Something along the lines of their handheld FE games, which are all small scale compared to their home console games (yes, even Awakening, to all you new fans out there; that game had a really small scale compared to the likes of Radiant Dawn). Then in Nintendo NX, we can get something as big and epic as Radiant Dawn (but with more supports).

AVahne commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

"More info in 2016"
Perfect timing. Goes along with my predictions. Usually we'll see mention of a new console 2 years before the end of a generation, and then the full reveal the year after followed by the release a year after that.

Hopefully it'll be a powerful handheld with the latest ARM 64 bit CPU and the latest kickass mobile GPU. With 4 GB RAM (at least) and TV streaming. Knowing Nintendo it'll just be the equivalent to 2013's nVidia Shield, or weaker to accommodate a slimmer form factor. Best option would be to offer two handhelds. The weaker, 2013 spec device to replace 3DS and a stronger 2016-2017 spec device to replace Wii U. Both with PC streaming and both with mostly the same games. Some exclusives for the stronger one to take advantage of its power and maybe a couple exclusives for the weaker one to take advantage of some kind of exclusive hardware feature it might have.

EDIT: Can Nintendo NX be read as Nintendo Next?

AVahne commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

I am EXTREMELY pleased by how Nintendo is handling this. It truly makes it seem like they know what they're doing (for once). Integrating smart devices while continuing their own hardware is a very smart move, and segregating what type of games appear on each platform is part of that. Instead of being left behind like they always are, Nintendo has finally taken strides to become relevant once again.
However, one thing still irks me:
"but the current infrastructure of NNIDs and content management on current generation hardware may still be tied to hardware."
**** YOU NINTENDO
WTF YOU BE DOING?

You're finally starting to modernize your infrastructure AND YOU STILL CAN'T FIX THIS ISSUE?
Give control of the accounts to their owners. Don't hold them in an iron grip.

AVahne commented on ​​​Parent Trap: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimat...:

I'm not a parent, and likely never will be, but I took a similar approach to my little brother's growth into gaming. Unfortunately nowadays I'm busy with college so he spends most of his game time playing Minecraft or LoL. He used to play a lot of shooters, but seems to have grown bored of them; now only playing them when my sister or I decide to play one.

AVahne commented on Kaio: King of Pirates, by Keiji Inafune's Comc...:

Considering we've almost never seen any in game footage or imagery (I THINK there may have been tiny screenshots at one point) and rarely ever heard of it, this want surprising. It really is too bad though, it was announced at a time when the 3DS was aching for more games. While it has done better since then, it's on decline now, so having more games canceled isn't a good thing.

AVahne commented on Iron Combat: War in the Air Bringing Mech Batt...:

This game is awesome, if not a little repetitive.
It can basically be described as "Strike Suit Zero Lite", though in mecha musume mode the gameplay is more like an arena battle game than a TPS.

Never thought this game would make it over, so I already have it on my JP New 3DS, but I'm glad it's finally making it here.

Though honestly, the localized title sounds stupid.

AVahne commented on Hardware Review: 8Bitdo FC30 Pro Controller:

@unrandomsam
It would've made the controller more expensive and also iOS-exclusive. Apple's MFi regulations (according to PhoneJoy) dictate that it must follow their strict design rules and that it must only work with iOS devices. Plus the required MFi chip is expensive and would just increase the price of the device.
Ever wonder why peripheral manufacturers have to release what is essentially the same product again with a higher price tag, different name, and MFi-support?

AVahne commented on Hardware Review: 8Bitdo FC30 Pro Controller:

So...

Are the buttons responsive? How do they feel? Are they mushy or clicky or something nice in between? How are the sticks? Any deadzones? How "well-built" is it?
Is the connection with PC and mobile platforms solid or does it drop from time to time?
Also how is the compatibility with games and emulators (honestly, most people will probably buy this type of thing specifically for emulation)? Even though it's HID-compliant, not every game will support every controller the same way. That goes for both Android and PC. Don't need to go case by case, but checking to see how well it performs over a wide range would've been good.

Of course this is a Nintendo fan site, so just saying "the FC30 Pro comes with very basic Wii support as well" is probably enough of a review for the Nintendo-only people who lurk here.

Looks pretty good for a chibi 3DS game, visually at least. It remains to be seen if Imageepoch can make a very good game this time...
Though, did Sting also work on this? Those battle camera angles look like they were pulled straight from Sting and Compile Heart's Hyperdevotion Noire Goddess Black Heart.

@BulbasaurusRex
Maybe, but like you said, they probably wanted to get more women in the game. Besides that, I think Lucina was considered the more popular character, so she was chosen over her lord daddy.
Besides, she's also the only other lord in the series to have some kind of father still alive by the end of the game (even though technically HER father is dead, but at least she still has alternate universe father). The only other lord with this status is Roy, whose also the lord with the biggest harem XD

AVahne commented on Modder Makes Chrom Playable in Super Smash Bro...:

@L8T
Well, even though he was a Knight Lord and thus rode on a horse whenever he was playable, it'd be weird if he couldn't fight unmounted. So I don't think he'd be that weird of an addition. Sadly we'll likely never see him added, but at least one of Ike's alternate colors pretty much emulates him.

AVahne commented on Modder Makes Chrom Playable in Super Smash Bro...:

@Ducked
Adding him would be a bit of work for the dev team and Sakurai though. Even if they made minimal changes to make him less cloney, they still have to spend many hours balancing him out and making sure he plays fine. Not to mention all the animation work, rigging, bug checking, and whatnot just to add a single character. It's a lot of work just for a pretty unnecessary character.
And interesting opinion. Personally I think that Chrom cannot hold even a single candle wick to Ike, but that's just me.
