The nice thing about Rainmaker mode that I noticed: if your team gets a knockout win, you get a bonus 5000p. Excellent for leveling up.

This is the amount of points you get for a knockout win when at S rank and I believe footage had the player possessing an S rank. Certainly a perk of getting to such high ranks but keeping S can be hard due to the amount of points a win nets and the amount of points a loss takes.

Of course during squad battles you will not lose or gain any points if you are at S rank (except if you disconnect).

re:n0body Developers do go down. It means no new copies of that game are made. The difference is its far easier to exchange a license with other people (i.e. give the disc to them) and also there will be likely be some surplus of copies made vs sold which isn't true for digital (as amount bought=amount sold).

I'm wondering if GameArts has found a flaw in Nintendo's contract to sort out the payment issues (that is Nintendo only pays you after hitting the sale threshold and if you don't hit it within 2 years you never get paid) or did something else which made Nintendo withdraw the game. Its a good idea to also contact Nintendo about it as GameArts are not giving any answers.

Re: Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3

All of the Clash of Ninja games take a few months to come out in Europe (not sure why, I'd like to say anime pacing but as far as I can tell a poorly censored version being shown at the same time as Eastenders or Coronation Street kind of killed the franchise in the UK).

Based on the past you should be looking at February - April 2010.

Re: PAL Muramasa choppy?

Starwolf_UK

I assume you read the first post of this:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=943228&am...
It was debunked later on. I hope the person who made those statements comes back so we find out what exactly the issue was (but my guess is the Wii has been set to 50Hz...they wouldn't notice a problem with the NTSC version since most loaders force 60Hz or they had moved the Wii and switched out cables which resets the video settings to 50Hz...). Also 50Hz will be choppy as it is 25 frames a second vs 30 frames a second.

Re: EU 03-07-09 Predictions

Not just Gradius but for 400 points chepaer...well when you consider it is out 4 months later that works out at 100 points per month...kind of puts Bubble Bobble into perspective (ignore the fact that was 1.5 months just round up). Sadly, the game being chepaer doesn't make any less useless at those kinds of games...

Re: Why is VC so short on N64 games?

Starwolf_UK

People do own Acclaims IPs. A while back they were put up for auction though IIRC the minimum bid was $2000...I really hope someone did buy the Rise of the Robots IP*.

But the problem is while the IPs are owned I'm not clear on what happened to the games themselves (would they count as abandonware?). Then you've got issues like Acclaim using Turok without a liscence (this was one of things that brought them down).

*-Scary fact time. The developer behind that; Data Design Interactive are still alive. You might know them for such gems as Ninjabread Man, Anubis II and Action Girlz Racing.

Re: Why is VC so short on N64 games?

The 3rd party pool is games isn't too large due to the major supporters no longer existing. All the Acclaim games can't come out since the Acclaim that released them is long dead and Factor 5 recently died.

Apart from that it seems like the controller pak which should be trivial to emulate (the same with rumble...which actually worked back in the gamecube variation of the emulator) but Nintendo's approach of they come to us (regarding games) means it'll never get done.

Gonna avoid Catch now i've thought about it, 1000 points is like lots n stuff. Depends if the unlockables in Tap are any good. Must find out.

The Let's Tap manual tells you what is unlokced and how to unlock it without Let's Catch. IIRC, all of it can be unlocked without Let's Catch. It's best to think of it as Rosalina in Mairo Kart Wii. If you have Super Mairo Galaxy its easy but if you don't it'll be more work.

Re: FFIV: The After Years comes with "9 episodic tales"!

Starwolf_UK

Its actual content you're downloading and not unlock codes. Unlock codes would just be 1 block, the DLC is 5-7 or 17 (17 being the final pack which contains 3). If you think that seems small you've got to remember the graphics and music are in the base package.

I'm not a big fan of the scheduling but to see an ending it is 1600 points (800 for initial pack of 3 stories and 800 for the final pack...when it hits in September). I'm probably going to give it a miss as I feel it is too costly (I really wanted all the tales and I'm not sure I would be content with "now forget about it until September"). I might be in for the base package but I've got to wait for it to come out over here and also I want to finish my FFV playthrough.

can't find a bestiary in-game anywhere
The game has loads of rare item drops (like the pointless Goblin summon) and a few rare enemies (NPCs will give you hints of where and when to find these) so that is quite disappointing.

Re: My wii freezez. Hilfe!

Starwolf_UK

MadWorld tends to crash a lot.

As for house of dead. Games sometimes crash for no real reason. It'll probably stay as a one-off.

As for what you can do. Make sure you've not ocvered up any of the ventalation ports on the Wii as it could be a heat related problem (games tend to freeze more if the system in overheating) but apart from that, nothing.

As for the advice Mama Luigi gave. It makes no difference if you have 1 block or 1000 blocks free. All the flash memory is used for is reading save and writing save.
