@Crono1973 When it comes to the most bare bones games, yeah. But, as far as SNES games with anything as simple a few animation layes, speed and quality drop like a rock.

The PSP isn't anywhere near powerful enough to have full SNES emulation without any problems. The 3DS (Both of them) are in the same boat no matter how you spin it.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (North America):

@Crono1973 It has nothing to do with power, but it all has to do with architecture. First off, the PSP has a similar processor and achitecture to the PS1 which takes a lot of the weight off since they don't have to really redirect that much of the emulation process. Meanwhile, the SNES and GBA have a completely different architecture to the 3DS, so the emulators put enormous strain on the 3DS' CPU because it has to mask everything instead if just a few processes.

Also, yes, SNES and GBA emulation do require a lot of power. They need at least 3 GHz worth to work 100% properly on mobile devices, meanwhile the New 3DS barely has 1 GHz at its disposal.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (North America):

@justinr Yes there is. Both the old 3DS and New 3DS do not have enough power to emulate SNES games (And the GBA console is more than double the power of the SNES). So, their only alternative is to do what they did early on, which is have the GBA roms played through a back door found in the DS backwards compatibility of the console. However, doing that prevents the console from going into sleep mode and removes the possibility of save states (Because it's acting exactly like a real DS would with a GBA game inserted).



Transdude1996 commented on 17 Games Get North American eShop Discounts in...:

@bro2dragons I was able to find physical copy of the game (In like new condition) for 3 bucks less on Tuesday. IMO, the digital copy should be about $20 on default since it was released almost 5 years ago.

As for any of the games, I'm tempted to get Sin & Punishment in addition to the recent release of Metroid: ZM.



Transdude1996 commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

On the discussion the NX, I always thought that was going to be Nintendo's "smartphone" or something along the lines of that, or even perhaps an alternative to the 3DS. Not a new home console.

Also, even if Nintendo were to announce their next home, I wouldn't expect to see an official announcement until next year's E3, at the earliest.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo Renews Eternal Darkness Trademark as¬...:

@PanurgeJr I thought The Last Guardian was cancelled sometime last year.

On another note, with the renewal to the ED trademark, and the still hurting loss of Silent Hills, why not see if Del Toro could make an official sequel to ED. I keep hearing people say how they want to see what happens with him at the helm of a video game, here's as good of a chance as any.



Transdude1996 commented on Weirdness: Sony Uses Art From Super Smash Bros...:

I'll see who I can find that hasn't been mentioned yet in the provided picture (Wakko, Travis, Mega Man,):

All three versions of Lara Croft
Jade from BG&E (Though I've always heard about the GC version of that, never the PS2 version)
There is a Green Lantern
It looks like they used Leon Kennedy's RE4 model (Which was originally a GC exclusive)
The character from Steamworld Dig (Though I thought that was really big on the 3DS)
Shepard from Mass Effect (Originally a 360 exclusive)

And, that's all I have time for right now.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo and Philips Sign Global Patent Licens...:

If @TheRealThanos is correct, and I'm a bit hesitant to say he is since it is an internet comment, I get the feeling that Nintendo was going to win the suit, but instead told Philips that they can interchange tech, because of Philips presence in the medical industry, if they drop the whole thing.

It's either that or Philips realized how little they would get from this case if they won, because of how outrageous their claim is, so instead went with interchanging things with Nintendo in hopes of making even more.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

Being an LPer myself, though still starting out, I don't really have anything to say against this. The only thing I'm worried about is if Nintendo will allow us to monetize videos containing their content. The reason why is because I'd be more likely to play a game from a publisher that allows us to monetize rather than a publisher that doesn't.

As people have said above, we're making money off of their content, so we have to play by their rules.



Transdude1996 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

To those people saying "It's 2014, Same Sex Marriage should be univerally allowed",

Not even a majority of the states in the US allow for same sex marriage. Also, in same states, they aren't called same sex marriage, they're called civil unions. The only difference between the two is the name.



Transdude1996 commented on VGX Award Ceremony To Include New Footage of a...:

I'm going in expected a trailer for X, Smash Bros., or (most likely) Donkey Kong.

Now, what would be really impressive is if Nintendo announces something completely out of left field (IOW something that isn't Zelda, Star Fox, Metroid, F-Zero, or any other game that is highly demanded, and/or expected).



Transdude1996 commented on The Conduit Getting HD Remake For Mobile Tegra...:

In all honesty, I really enjoyed playing the first Conduit game. Never got around to playing the second one though. I think it would be great if they did release this game on the Wii U eShop and then come back and release the 3DS port of the second game.



Transdude1996 commented on Reaction: Wii U Preview Events:

The Wii U experience that I went to last month tipped the scales for me, but I didn't really convince me to buy it on day one. These recently released videos have finally convinced me to get it. I am so hyped about it.



Transdude1996 commented on Talking Point: The Rules for Violence in Video...:

If the player is under the age of 18, it is the parents choice of whether they want their child playing the game or not. If you are over 18, you get to choose what you want to play. If your attacking games that have voilence, why not go after movies and books that contain violence as well. This is a subject that should be dead and long forgotten about. End of discussion.



Transdude1996 commented on Planning To Download New Super Mario Bros. 2? ...:

I just downloaded the REvelations demo and it took me 5 minutes. From that I calculated that it would take me 11.858 minutes to download New Super Mario Bros. 2.. According to my computer, the connection speed of the router is 24.0 Mbps. Hope this helps.



Transdude1996 commented on Review: 3D Classics: Xevious (3DSWare):

Hated this game so f***ing much because of it being so hard, but it grew on me. So just after I got my 3DS, I downloaded using my Club points. This and Four Swords were my first two 3DS games.
