bngrybt commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:
The fact it shows a memory card leads me to believe it won't be digital only. The memory card appears to have some sort of installation data that contains two programs. One is stored on the HD, the other is stored in memory. Sounds like some sort of handshake verification process is used to ensure that you have the card inserted maybe? It wouldn't surprise me if we see a form factor similar to 3DS or Vita games for this system. I'm all for using a non-optical physical media. Flash memory is quicker and harder to physically damage. Things have come a long way since the old cartridge days. Optical media is struggling to keep up now.

Super Saiyan God is already a different thing. It's a temporary form that requires the power of six Saiyans channeled into one. Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan means harnessing the power of a Super Saiyan God without the support of other Saiyans, and going Super Saiyan while this power is harnessed. Hence, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.
Or, if you want an easier explanation, Super Saiyan God is red hair. Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan is blue hair.

@carlt I have the 8bitdo NES controller. It's pretty high quality and awesome. Works with the Retron 5 too so that's a bonus

My sister let her friend borrow my copy of FF9 and I never saw it again. That made me sad.

@duffmmann Backlight kits only work for black and white Game Boys, not GB Color. You need to front light those, which usually involves hacking up a GBA SP and is a much more complicated process.

@RantingThespian generally rom hacks like this are safe because they aren't distributed with the originally code and are distributed as a patch

Looks like they are using the same mold as the Buffalo Classic USB Gamepad, which is pretty much the best clone SNES controller you can buy. I have one sitting on my desk right now. The two small buttons above select and start are a dead giveaway. If I didn't already have a Retron 5 I might be interested, as the USB controller support is intriguing to me. But still, too similar to what I have already.

i have sf4 on cart, but my kid likes to play it too. i'll probably download it to either my system or his so we can play together
bngrybt commented on Weirdness: This Game Boy Macro Is Crafted From...:
@Kirk I think Nintendo switched the layout in order to match their other systems better, but then used B/Y for confirm/cancel in a lot of games, especially earlier SNES games, because they had been developed on the original layout. I actually prefer the way it is now. It's never really bothered me. I just rock my thumb back and forth between B and A. It's comfortable enough for me.

Online shooters are a hotbed for verbal diarrhea. This game is going to be rated E10+ at the worst. It's being cross-promoted with toys. Leave the voice chat out. As a gamer, it's inconvenient, but as a parent, I wholeheartedly approve.

I can't believe people are upset over the phrase "fun new ways to play". It's a new system. Of course it will offer fun new ways to play. What is he supposed to say, that it offers a boring, old, tired experience?
bngrybt commented on Retro-Bit Is Releasing A Super Mario Edition O...:
@retro_player_22 That controller looks cool. I still have some old SNES pads kicking around and that's what I've been using though. I have a retron 5 now too so my duo is mostly retired, but it's still nice to have as a backup system. If the trio is only $10 more though that seems like a better option for sure.
I have a Retro Duo. The controller is pretty bad, but the system is nice enough and compatible with SNES controllers. It's really small so for years it was an easy way to cart NES/SNES games around to other places. For $60 it's not a bad system, much better than some other clones out there with good compatibility and durable enough to have lasted me for at least 5 years and running.

bngrybt commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:
I know everyone likes to act like the Zelda cartoon was exceptionally horrible, but at the time it really wasn't bad. It was on TV at a time when Ninja Turtles were at their biggest. It's just the way cartoons of the late 80s were.
As far as characterization goes, this was Zelda as it was before Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. Link and Zelda were blank slate characters and the writers of the show had to create personalities for them. Hence, they became personalities of their time.
I was a huge fan of the show as a kid and I never thought of it as being particularly horrible. It wasn't until the internet showed up and kids raised of OoT started watching it that it became retroactively "horrible".
bngrybt commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:
I've known this since I was a kid, around 1989. Not sure how I learned it, but it's definitely not new. You can also hit B to select a world at the title screen after beating the game once. Hopefully that one isn't new to anyone, or they're just not paying attention at the end.

So... will this allow DDR pads to work on the Wii U then? If so.. I have an 8 year old kid who is gonna freak out over this.
bngrybt commented on Reggie Fils-Aime and Co. Take On The ALS Ice B...:
People need to stop complaining about the Ice Bucket Challenge. It's a worthy cause. Sure, there are other diseases that are better known and affect for people, but don't blame ALS for that. It's a horrible disease that normally flies under the radar. They have been running a successful campaign and that is good for them. The money they have received will fund them for a great number of years, and that's a very good thing. Most people will donate to higher profile diseases like cancer multiple times in their lifetime. I'm willing to bet that this is the first, and probably last time that a lot of people will donate to ALS. In 6 months this challenge will be pretty much forgotten. Don't knock a good thing just to be a buzzkill. Enjoy the silly vids while they last, and be glad that the money is actually helping people who are suffering and their families.
bngrybt commented on Video: Behold the Sheer Majesty Of The Backlit...:
This article inspired me to get a backlight kit. Installed it myself yesterday and it's amazing. Even better than the video and really not that hard to install. It's amazing how much the blur is reduced. Hard to believe it's the same screen I'm looking at.
bngrybt commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:
@Therad the complaint was that there are no week known male characters in a Speedo with a bulging crotch. Zangeif was the first example that came to mind. Also, if idealized men in form fitting clothes are also designed to appeal to male sexuality, then what exactly would be something designed for females? I honestly want to know. I'm not a woman so I don't know what their ideal would be.
@Yogsoggoth Does Zangeif count?
Samus is no more ridiculous than Captain Falcon as far as ridiculously idealized bodies in skin tight form fitting costumes go.
bngrybt commented on Legendary Actor and Comedian Robin Williams Ha...:
I was watching Aladdin today with my son. First time he'd ever seen it. During the scene where Genie shows up and sings Never Had a Friend Like Me, I got the text that Robin Williams killed himself. It was hard to finish the movie, felt really creepy after that.
bngrybt commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):
I want Ufouria so bad but I only have my 3DS with me so I'll have to wait until I'm back home next week to play it on my Wii U. Bawwwwww
bngrybt commented on Dragon Quest X All-In-One Retail Package Will ...:
@DarkKirby It looks like DBZ because Akira Toriyama did the art for both. That's his signature style. Look at Chrono Trigger and Blue Dragon too. It's just how he draws his characters.
bngrybt commented on Review: Bases Loaded (3DS eShop / NES):
This was the third NES game I ever owned, after Mario and Zelda. I have a lot of fond memories of this one. The umpire had a really cool digitized voice too, and occasionally if you struck out at a bad time he would yell "You bum! Out!" instead of just "Out!" It was awesome.
My favorite thing about this game was beaning the best player on the opposing team. Sometimes they get mad and attack the pitcher, getting themselves ejected from the game, hahaha
bngrybt commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Confirms New 'Retro' GameCub...:
If this adapter works in Wii mode then I can finally pack up the old Wii. I think it's on its last legs, but my son uses it to play DDR constantly. He'll be pretty upset when it finally dies.
bngrybt commented on E3 2014: Wii U eShop Version of Bayonetta 2 Do...:
Having the first game might be what pushes me into buying it. I never played the first game before and I wouldn't want to feel left in the dark going into the second. Really smart move.

Fun fact about the word phallus, it's not censored in Pokemon. Totally legit Pokemon name. Note, go flood wonder trade!
bngrybt commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:
The lack of GBA on 3DS has nothing to do with commitment to ambassadors. It's because the GBA games on 3DS are an unpolished, unprofessional looking product. It feels like you're running some sort of beta verson of the VC compared to all the other VC releases. As a free bonus, this is fine. For a paid product it doesn't feel acceptable.
bngrybt commented on Review: Ice Hockey (Wii U eShop / NES):
Ice Hockey was decently fun, but Blades of Steel was the best.
bngrybt commented on StreetPass Games Producers Tell Origins of Mii...:
I just finished every puzzle over Christmas. Streetpass feels so empty now. 100%'ed both Find Mii's a long time ago. Looks like I'm gonna have to dip into the paid games soon.

Some people are just stupid. They will always think it's just a tablet for the Wii.
bngrybt commented on Dr. Luigi announced for Wii U eShop:
I'm colorblind and I think this sucks. The bright primary colors of the old Dr Mario I can differentiate just fine, but the new purply looking one looks so much like the light blue to me that I won't be able to play this at all. Oh well.

My seven year old sun drew a picture of a butt taking a poop on the Animal Crossing community. It was pulled.
bngrybt commented on SNES Inspired 'Super World Karts GP' Adds Wii ...:
Am I the only one who clearly saw parts of the maps to Mario Circuit 1 and 2 as well as Ghost Valley 1 in there? That's the kind of stuff that crosses the "inspired by" line directly into "rip-off" territory. Inspiration is fine, but don't blatantly copy.
bngrybt commented on Nintendo Wants To Close Down This Open-Source ...:
Yeah shut it down. Also, the physics are to floaty and the controls are garbage. It's technically impressive but nearly unplayable.
bngrybt commented on Weirdness: ABC News Tells Us All About How the...:
This has nothing to do with Nintendo branding. It's what happens when a news organization hires someone based purely on looks and not knowledge of the subject they're reporting.
bngrybt commented on Weirdness: Zelda Answers Rejected on Jeopardy,...:
Jeopardy is like that. I've seen a person get a question wrong for saying Budweiser instead of Bud Light. You have to be very specific.
