Tmdean commented on Talking Point: Miiverse Can Promote System Uni...:

I just find it baffling that Nintendo opted to make MiiVerse a web app on the 3DS. The Wii U is powerful enough that a web app makes sense, but MiiVerse runs so slow on the 3DS. They really should have made it a native app like the eShop.



Tmdean commented on Wii U System Update Coming Next Week:

Seeing things like Panorama View almost has me convinced that the Wii U was originally intended to be a VR system and they were forced to make a last minute change to using a tablet because they needed to release early. Panorama View looks like a cute gimmick for the Gamepad but would have been a great tech demo of a VR headset.



Tmdean commented on Review: Witch & Hero (3DS eShop):

It really bugs me when people call their games "8 bit style" but are obviously using 32-bit color in their palettes, alpha channel effects, hundreds of active sprites, and occasionally have graphics that leak into using the full resolution of the screen instead of always using doubled pixels (sort of like the US Super Mario Bros. box art).

If you want to go for an 8 bit aesthetic, I'm all for it, but at least pretend to only be using effects that might have been achievable on a realistic 8 bit computer. Otherwise you're just being lazy.



Tmdean commented on Nnooo: Australian Ratings System Prevents Indi...:

Why can't they just use the ESRB ratings? I understand that ratings can be useful to parents, but there's no reason for every single country to have their own ratings system when they all measure basically the same thing! That's the stupidest part of all of this.
