Sforzando commented on Copyright Owner of 'Trollface' Image Explains ...:

Ironic that the creator of the trollface is a copyright troll.

It's such a common and iconic part of internet culture. Why not just release it into the public domain??

EDIT: That said, Ninja Pig Man has made far more money than he deserves to from this mess.



Sforzando commented on Woah Dave! Getting Free Deluxe Update On 3DS, ...:

This game is so fun!

...Although I'm a little worried about the Deluxe update hurting the simplicity which made the game so unique. Makes a minimalist game, well, less minimal.

That said I can't wait to ride some UFOs and [censored] some [censored] up.

EDIT: Any word as to when the update will be available?



Sforzando commented on Review: Flap Flap (3DS eShop):

"one of the darkest eras of gaming" lmao

Flappy Bird is a quality game and there's nothing wrong with it. I'll stand by that. Flap Flap, on the other hand, smells like trash from a mile away.



Sforzando commented on Review: Flipnote Studio 3D (3DS eShop):


Moving around an SD card isn't that hard, is it? If you've got a New 3DS (XL), you don't even need to remove the card.

I don't mind the lack of an online community — Sudomemo still has us covered there, although you need to use Flipnote Studio DSi to access that. My biggest gripe is the gross-looking compression present in exported AVI's.

Exported AVI's actually ARE 3D, though. You just need to do some converting, and you can post them to YouTube as 3D videos, and even watch them in 3D on YouTube with your New 3DS (XL).

As for where to share your Flipnotes? I recommend the Flipnote Studio 3D subreddit:

Great review, NL. Keep up the good work.




Sforzando commented on Crash: Mind over Mutant:

@pntjr Naught Dog didn't sell Crash to Radical. Are you forgetting all the games that happened from 2002 to 2006?

Mind over Mutant and Crash of the Titans aren't awful games, just very different from the others in the series. Radical was working on a platforming-centered game called Crash Landed, but it was cancelled in 2010. Look that up before you criticize Radical too much.



Sforzando commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

Kirby: Right Back At Ya was one of my favorite shows as a kid. I loved all the characters. I wish Dedede's in-game personality was more like the show. Seeing more of Escargoon would be awesome. Meta Knight was badass, and Kabu was always ready to send the "WARP STAR." Great show/10.



Sforzando commented on Ocarina Of Time 3D Reportedly No Longer In Pro...:

I didn't know this was new, it has been kinda hard to find for a while. I mean look at Wii games like Kirby's Return to Dreamland, they've obviously been out of production for a while, but there was no article when that happened. Again, why is this news?



Sforzando commented on Review: Scarygirl Illustration Kit (3DS eShop):

Colors! 3D strangely lacks some things you would expect to be basic, such as resizing and repositioning layers or paintings. The original DS homebrew didn't even have multiple layers! But I do like Colors, it is definitely a solid tool.

I really like Inchworm too, but the DS hardware limits it a lot. An Inchworm 3D (or even a 2d-only Inchworm 3DS) would be quite awesome.

I wonder why Flat Black Films hasn't made an animation software for PC, come to think of it. Stuff like Flash and Toon Boom can be way too expensive, and have a lot of options most people never use. Put Inchworm's drawing and animation tools in a sleek PC application for $10, and you have a very decent option for beginning animators. Tl;dr, DSi animation software is better than any PC animation software that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars.

I think I ended up ranting, but anyway can't wait for FS3D. What article was I commenting on again?



Sforzando commented on Link’s Swimming is a Notable Change in The L...:


I really, really hate the blatantly obvious weak points in Zelda games. "Oh, I wonder if I'm supposed to hit the glowing, pulsating eye!" It's offensive, that's the only way of putting it.

The exception to this is probably Link Between Worlds, since that one is a lot more lighthearted and fast-paced, and not intended to be taken seriously. MM, on the other hand, is quite dark and serious and the eye weakspots make my stomach turn slightly.



Sforzando commented on Kirby Fighters Deluxe & Dedede's Drum Dash Del...:

Dedede's DDD is a great game! I highly recommend it.

It's pretty short, but it's a decent rhythm game. I like it better than HarmoKnight, despite how few songs there are. I only wish the songs included in Triple Deluxe were included in DDDD, though, since I don't have the original game.



Sforzando commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

Sign up for 3 or 4 extra Club Nintendo accounts so you can give the codes to the people who were too slow!

If the exporting options are up to par with the Japanese release, the lack of online services won't completely destroy the potential of the application. You can export animated GIFs, sequential GIFs, and .AVI movies.

Exporting AVI's is the easiest way to share Flipnotes with audio, since they can be uploaded to YouTube with ease. However, exported AVI's are horribly compressed. And the audio will be scratchy. Here is a sample AVI Flipnote: (created by me lol)

However, if you have any video editing software, you can sync the crisp, non-compressed GIF export with the original audio, creating something that is a little easier on the eyes and ears. It takes a bit of effort, but it's not too bad.

Fans will definitely create services and sites for sharing Flipnotes. Collaboration is even possible, since you can send the Flipnote's file to others for editing on their 3DS.



Sforzando commented on A New Rhythm Heaven Game On Nintendo 3DS Is Mu...:

Each of the previous games has had 50 total minigames. But many of them are Remixes, (combination of several previous minigames into a new song) and sequels (A harder version of a previous minigame with the same tune remixed).

Leaving out the Remixes and sequels, and if I'm remembering correctly the GBA game had 20 unique games, the DS one had 24, and the Wii game had 28. 20+24+28 = 72. So unless they are including old remixes, this will have almost every minigame in the series!

It will be interesting to see how the game is structured though for sure. And I have a Japanese 3DS so I can't wait for summer!



Sforzando commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 14th January, Wi...:

Oh, look, it's that animated walking alien avatar guy. I bet he's going to say something about Flipnote Studio 3D!

Dang, how did you know. Eh, I think it would be a good time for NOA and NOE to finally release the dang thing. It's no longer the holiday season, so they should be able to squeeze in a simple animation app/online community into their priorities, right? RIGHT?
