Maggots commented on Ever Wondered How Your 3DS Battery Life Compar...:

i don't necessarily think this is a TRUE and Valid test for battery life because as you play the processor is experienceing all sorts of work loads... especially the PSP with it's moving parts if you were actually playing a game and it constantly had to load levels and characters it would have died much sooner than it did... just playing the title screen doesn't really put these consoles to the real world tests that more accurately depict an average gaming session. ...

Maggots commented on Wii U Memory Can be Easily Expanded With USB H...:

@cyphid the only thing with a solid state in this situation is the bottle neck of USB 2.0 ... SSD's can have speeds from 300-500MB/s ... attaching that to a 30-40MB/s USB 2.0 would sure be sad for that poor SSD just waiting to scream on a nice SATA 3 port. in essence the performance would be the same as a slow hard drive ... HAHA that is funny that we both talked about newegg... I love that place!

Maggots commented on Wii U Memory Can be Easily Expanded With USB H...:

@DrSlump It really matters not as most hard drives top out at around 60-80 MB per second... even with USB 2.0's transfer speedsit should be plenty fast to stream games off of it...

as far as other options go... my buddy just bought on new egg (i think ) a 128GB SDXC card for $90 and I'm willing to bet they'll be cheaper on black friday deals in november... couple that with the 32GB Wii U and you'll have a pretty 160GB ... as much as the PS3 slim I have! plenty of space for games and junk!...

funny thing is Wii U discs run at 22MB/s ... and that's apparently plenty fast to stream data for games (360 and PS3 disc speeds are much slower---360′s 15.85 MB/s (DVD) and the PS3′s 9MB/s (Blu-ray))... USB 2.0 has a transfer speed of about 34MB/s... and like I said Hard drives are about 60-80MB/s depending on RPMs... that SD card I talked about had a write speed of 37MB/s, and a read speed of 45MB/s (granted... nintendo's DS readers may cap out at a certain speed... so performance boost may be negligible ... however very comparable to every other component on this system...

It's just nice to know all your options... as you see I have considered all of these for a long time now haha!!

also here's a nifty rundown of storage options and data rates...

Maggots commented on Amoebattle's Quarantine Period is Nearly Over:

dang it... another cool looking game that I'm not going to buy because it wasn't developed for the 3DS... if i were a developer and i knew the 3DS was releasing i would instantly begin development for it... regardless of what stage of production i was in

This sickens me... the world likes crap... ... they like terrible things... that's why there's so many SAW movies... I have lost my faith in human kind...

Maggots commented on Talking Point: The Inevitability of Digital Re...:

how about both? ... Buy the Box edish... get a free download version... so you can collect your boxes and just use the download version... you are basically paying for a license anyway... like with blizzard... I bought starcraft II boxed... but downloaded it onto all of my computers that I own... THAT is what nintendo should do...

Maggots commented on Dead or Alive: Dimensions Demo Punches Europe ...:

I absolutely love this game... one it was the first game to utilize all of the major functions of the 3DS... and you can get it for $20 now... I had SSIV and this ... and i traded in SSIV ... Dead or alive Dimensions was way more fun... there is a lot more to do as well ... with play coins and daily spot pass "DLC" ... it was a way better, well put together experience where as street fighter was just... empty...

Maggots commented on Nintendo Rejects The Binding of Isaac:

its a crappy game with virtually no market for it... why would they even consider it when it has a smaller demographic than the last story... And they won't even publish that one here in the states.... think about it...

Maggots commented on Wii U Controller Originally Had Proper Analogu...:

When I played it at e3 it felt wonderful. ... no sticks needed... also about the touch screen... the technology exists to have multi touch resistive touch screen... (Stylus Touch Screen) that would be the best as it would be compatible with ANY iPad game... but still use a stylus which is WAY better for drawing and touching and stuff...

Maggots commented on Talking Point: Achievements, Trophies and Wii U:

I think the 3DS should have system aceivements itself... not just for games or street passes... like take 1000 pictures... make 50 sounds... walk 10 miles... play 30 different 3DS retail Games... register 25 friends locally.. stuff like that

Maggots commented on Talking Point: 3DS Depends on Nintendo Titles ...:

If third party developers would actually try... and take a chance on actually putting effort into a game... then they might sell better... I feel no sympathy.... look at ace combat 3D... IT'S NOT EVEN ON SHELVES IN STORES!!!... IT'S LIKE THEY DoN"T WANT IT TO SELL WELL.... ... i'm really bugged by devs

Maggots commented on Skylanders Developer "Looking at Wii U NFC Tec...:

@rjejr ... they could still probably play with the Wii U controller being the portal of power for all players... in fact I bet on the Wii U version there could be up to 4 people at once... place all 4 characters on the Wii U tablet controller... and use the Wii remotes to play as those characters. Problem solved.
