I have mad love for the MK8 team, but the Smash DLC remains to convince me. I hope more stages would come for Smash!

Both MK8 and Smash4 are brilliant products and they have solid super polished game engines. I see no reason to ditch them any time soon. Since all of the main ingredients are already in place, it's easy to add to them via DLC.

@Asaki Well, to be honest, I'm not sure if it's properly slower. Like walking the same distance might take the exact same time on both versions. But at least the game renders much more smoothly on the NTSC version and the DK Rap sequence is slower on the PAL version.

See this:



Moshugan commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:

I've been enjoying it, but DK64 hasn't aged as well as Mario 64 or Banjo-Kazooie for example.

The controls are a bit clunky, especially camera, and there's some archaic game design. The progression is tad confusing and unintuitive.

But all in all the game is very fun and there's a ton of things to do. Lots of secrets and variety.

Too bad the Euro release is the 50hz PAL. It's noticeably slower than the NTSC version, but it's not a game breaker. I didn't notice it until I watched a comparison video by Nintendomination.

Btw, anyone else have the same problem that when you push the stick on the GamePad to move, the character starts moving only after a good few millimeters? It's pretty annoying in places where you need to tiptoe on a ledge.

Here's one source Google gave me that deals with the cherry claim:

It seems cherries do have benefits against some types of cancer (colorectal is mentioned specifically) but it's a far cry from @Dolphin64 's claim that "There is a chemical in Cherries that basically make Cancer cells commit suicide. Live on a diet that consistently consists of Cherries however long it needs, and you'll start to see the Cancer effects fade away."

Studies show that anthocyanins in cherries "inhibit the growth of cancer cells and stimulate their self-destruction, without affecting healthy cells" and studies on dietary fibers "suggest it reduces cells’ exposure to cancer-causing substances" because "Healthful gut bacteria use dietary fiber to produce short-chain fatty acids that protect colon cells."

But clinical human studies are far from conclusive: "Researchers cannot yet translate the clinical trial findings on perillyl alcohol to how consuming cherries may affect cancer development."

There seem to be beneficial compounds in cherries but it's not clear how well the benefits are utilized just by eating them.

@Dolphin64 Not to be rude, but if you were to provide a source for your cherry flavored claims it would most likely prove itself to be BS.

My mom might be facing a recurrence with her cancer, and I feel it would be stupid to not utilize the medical help provided by well trained doctors. She wouldn't be here if it weren't for the great medical expertise of our health care.

It's true that chemo is a crude way to treat cancer, but - apart from some unexpected miracle through prayer - it seems to be the only viable way to fight this disease at the moment.



Moshugan commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

Even Nintendo doesn't know what the next system will be - yet!

Nintendo announced NX now just to confirm that they are not abandoning the tradition of making their proprietary hardware for their proprietary games.

"We will not merely port games developed for our dedicated systems to smart devices just as they are — we will develop brand new software which perfectly matches the play style and control mechanisms of smart devices.”
The ultimate goal: to drive tablet and phone users to Nintendo’s hardware such that they “eventually become fans of our dedicated systems.”"

The thing about NX being the "marriage of the software with the hardware that together creates a compelling experience" is what Nintendo has ALWAYS done. So they've revealed no actual details of the next hardware yet.



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

I'd actually like for Nintendo to try their own internet-based digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer, and social networking platform (such as Valve's Steam is).

I mean, I would gladly forego buying a dedicated Nintendo device if I could play the same games. This kind of platform would allow Nintendo to focus on software and game experiences and online services instead of developing costly hardware, but still let them keep all rights and give them full DRM.

This wouldn't even have to replace their own consoles, but be a "third pillar" just like this mobile deal is.



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

People are reading quite much into this.
NX could simply stand for

  • Nintendo "X" (as in Nintendo "unknown/insert the new console name here")
  • NeXt (as in the next console in line)

Anyway, the wording "dedicated game platform" gives room for many interpretations.
I do hope they stick with the distinct home console and portable console duo, but unify the architecture and the OS, so that cross-everything will be possible.



Moshugan commented on The Happy Mask Salesman is Teased for a Reappe...:

The most likely and easiest to do for Nintendo would be Hyrule Warriors DLC.

Although as many have pointed out, the new Zelda for Wii U will probably take place in the Majora/Twilight timeline, so it wouldn't be too far out for him to make an appearance.



Moshugan commented on Video: Watch The Virtual Boy's Galactic Pinbal...:

The Wario Land video's 3D was too intense!

Everything was too separated. It looked unnatural and made my eyes do a lot of work. I hope this one's more moderate. You don't have to crank the depth to the fullest just coz.



Moshugan commented on Review: Puzzle Monkeys (Wii U eShop):

This just goes to show how an alright game might be marred by lacklustre audiovisuals.
It's way harder to make Simple 3D look good than simple 2D. Imagine if this game had pixel art or crisp cartoon presentation. It might get a higher score and reception even if it were the same game.



Moshugan commented on Nintendo Download: 12th February (Europe):

Gonna download Majora's Mask because it's part of the MM Special Edition New 3DS package in Europe. ;)

Also, I so much wanna buy Monster Hunter 4 since "this is another special experience from Capcom", but I'm not sure "If [I'm] up for the investment in time"!
