ZenTurtle commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

You lot of smug keyboard warriors have nothing good to say about homebrew, but don't slam it because you're defending your beloved Nintendo. The restrictions on our systems are really, well, excessively restrictive. Now I do not support piracy, but the region lock is ridiculous, and only serves to make Nintendo extra cash (as if they don't have enough of that). This tool gives us options. Options. And that is no bad thing. Some people want to play Japanese games without importing an expensive Japanese 3ds.

It's a matter of opinion, but I thought the cel-shading went a bit odd though, not in a bad way but there was definitely a difference. It's still fun to play but I never actually wanted it in the first place, seeing as it has aged the best of the older titles (at least in terms of art style). And it could have been so much more: adding in the two planned and coded dungeons not included due to original time constraints for example... Perhaps we'll see an eshop remake of FSA, the most under-appreciated of the games ... Now that is needed.

ZenTurtle commented on The Letter Version 1.1 Update Has a New Trailer:

I bought this game when it was on sale, I like how it is good for short playthroughs and some of the puzzles are actually mysterious, fun and challenging! It's great the devs are taking care to make it even better!

ZenTurtle commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

OoT should not have won. It was not as good as people say, and I think this vote was blinded by nostalgia. It is flawed in many parts, such as the water temple and I think many of the dungeons were bog-standard fire/water/forest dungeons. I know I do not share many people's views. This poll was just click-bait anyway. We all knew what would come first: OoT. The poll should have been based on specific qualities, such as best dungeons, characters etc. And OoT, in my opinion does not have those.

All I want is a few SNES games on 3ds. And a proportion of the wii vc games (if possible depending on copyright) on the wii u. I think you will agree with me on that point. It would be nice, but it won't happen. This argument is ridiculous anyway. We've said enough. I think you will agree. Please don't send me another block of text.

Don't talk condescendingly. :( We're all friends here...

You know, I do in fact agree with you. However, you're missing my point. The 3DS can emulate SNES games. It's all down to skill. Granted, emulation can get rather tricky, frustratingly so, (which I found out when I attempted to emulate a 1970s desktop calculator in C#). However, it can be done. Nintendo should be bringing these games to systems, and would reap the benefits in the form of nostalgia-fuelled buying frenzies. Anyway, it could easily be tackled by a team of just a few programmers (they employ many hundreds) or they could cheaply outsource it. And it would teach them a thing or two about listening to customers.

That's ludicrous. Modern computers have something called anti-aliasing. To show how simple it is, i will post some pseudo code for it:

Define function PlotAntiAliasedPoint ( number x , number y )
For roundedx = floor ( x ) to ceil ( x ) do
For roundedy = floor ( y ) to ceil ( y ) do
percent_x = abs ( x - roundedx )
percent_y = abs ( y - roundedy )
percent = percent_x * percent_y
DrawPixel ( coordinates roundedx, roundedy , color percent (range 0-1) )

Resolution is not a problem. Nintendo's decisions are.

Excuse me? There is no problem regarding the emulation. Nintendo's code-monkeys already wrote a working emulator for the wii, so there should be no problem emulating on any of their systems. If anything, it is easier for Nintendo to write an emulator because they know the most about their own processor specifications. Emulation is simply interpreting machine instructions, and is not as difficult as you imply.

ZenTurtle commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

Really, the WiiU eshop is not bad! Look at Steam, for crying out loud! Every day, games are released. Mobile ports, and 90s games (not even good ones) add to the glut. The Wii and DS libraries were far worse, film tie-in crap... While I'll admit that The Letter was total crap, you've got to take the rough with the smooth, and opening up development is an amazing idea. So calm down. Be thankful that at least the 90s games are fun on WiiU...

You people really know how to put someone on the brink of fairyhood down. I'll say my words to forget all about you, and they're Tingle's, so don't steal them: Tingle, Tingle, kooloo limpah!

I thank you all for appreciating me... I'll sell you my maps at a much reduced price, because that's what true friends do...

@Ernest_The_Crab
If there were issues with frame rate in 3D, then the game engine is really quite flawed, and inefficient. They should have worked on it more for X and Y, which at times felt rushed. I thought it was cheap for them not to have 3d for the majority of areas. But I suppose the people who the game is aimed at (under 10s) mostly have 2DSs, so they felt they could get away with it...
