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

@ModernMARVEL You just made me realize how messy the smash hacking community is about to become. For so long now, 98.9% of all Smash hacks were for Brawl, so looking through them all through the BrawlVault and the like, was relatively painless and easy. Sure there are some Melee and even 64 hacks, but most interest and resources were put into Brawl.

Now with 2 new different Smash games coming out, and the fact that the 3DS is already hacked (this exploit is not the only way to hack your 3DS, right now there are working 3DS mode flashcarts), and Wii U homebrew just budding its ugly little head too thanks to a known exploit in the Wii U internet browser. It seems incredibly likely that in time, we're going to see the Smash Hack community tackling both these new games, while there will still be Brawl hackers as well. Meaning that sorting through all the hacks for that community is going to be a major headache eventually..

@mystman12 Piracy on the 3DS already exists thanks to flashcards (lookup gateway 3DS if you're interested). The developer of this probably isn't a fool and knows that other coders will look at his work, and find the protection and remove it. Still, as I said piracy already exists, so he's certainly knows he can't stop it from happening, so he's just going to put in protection to wash his hands of the situation while still putting out a product that he can happily stand behind.

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

I think this would be pretty cool, we could finally get the things on our 3DS that Nintendo isn't willing to do. Namely: get more GBA VC titles (instead of just stopping at the 10 ambassador titles only for ambassadors), (and yes, VC titles, not a GBA emulator (though I'm sure we'd see that as well), modders have already injected the GBA pokemon games into the official GBA VC games and they have been shown working). As well as get all our old favorite titles revamped as 3D classics. I'm sure this wouldn't be an overnight thing, but if something one of the guys at SEGA said was true, creating the Genesis 3D classics on the 3DS was fairly easy after they overhauled the Genesis emulation hardware and changed some settings, they found that they could put any Genesis rom into the newly modified Genesis emulator, and they would properly output into 3D, and thus you see the Genesis 3D classics on the 3DS. Imagine being able to do that for all of your favorite old NES, SNES, Genesis, Master System, GB/GBC, GBA, and TurboGrafx 16 games. And finally imagine a properly working Virtual Boy emulator. As someone who never owned a Virtual Boy, I really would love to see the VB Wario Land running in the proper 3D perspective it was designed to be played in.

duffmmann commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

I'm sure this is the type of thing that could be resolved with an update to remove the 300 game/app limit. Having said that, I probably have somewhere from 75 to 100 games and apps and thats after acquiring them over the past 3 years, including all 20 of the ambassador games. It will take a long time to even reach that limit, and even if I do, I can just swap out the sd card with another sd card, I already have no problem switching out single game carts just to play a single game in the 3DS, why would having to switch sd cards that can hold up to 300 official games and apps be considered a negative thing?

@yuwarite you don't need it at all, but its nice to have alternatives to the touch screen camera, and now we have two, the official CPP, and this, and I think this looks fantastic. I'm seriously considering getting it, might get RE: Revelations another playthrough with the thing.

duffmmann commented on E3 2014: Hyrule Warriors Not Part of Zelda Tim...:

I'm glad he said in a different dimension. Obviously I could have argued that myself, but the fact that he puts it out there makes it all the more official. See I wanted this game to be a part of the timeline, but I do get how that stops making sense once characters like Imp Midna make appearances. However, we know that because of how the timeline into 3 at one point, than this means that the Zelda series embraces the idea of the multiverse. So its quite possible from my perspective that this game exists because of some split in the timieline we know of long long ago that may have had to split from theoretical possibilities multiple times just to exist. Makes it a really interesting title in that respect.

duffmmann commented on The Wii U Version Of Super Smash Bros. Will Ut...:

Maybe this will be Nintendo's way of adding extra characters to the game as opposed to (or perhaps as an alternative, meaning you could choose your method of doing so) DLC. So new characters they want to add, you can buy a little toy, scan it in via NFC and then bam, a new character is added to your roster. Or maybe this will be a way to save your custom movesets that they briefly showed off in that Nintendo Direct for Smash.

duffmmann commented on Hyrule Warriors Set for Summer 2014 Release in...:

@ikki5 Right, but as I said, many times when companies announce winter releases for video games we actually see them released in technically the late fall to correspond with the holidays. Now don't get me wrong, I could easily see Smash 4 for the Wii U get delayed, but as it stands, I think when they say winter for the release, they're actually talking late November / early December. We shall see I suppose.

@ikki5 Nintendo would be foolish to miss the holiday season to get Smash 4 out. They said winter but often when we're told a winter release they are actually talking more about a holiday release, so late November/early December would be my bet as to what they are aiming for.

duffmmann commented on Massive Pokémon Reveals Occur During Super Sm...:

@Bolt_Strike I have never perceived Lucario to be a popular pokemon character, especially not more popular than Mewtwo. Point is, the people choosing to include whichever 'mon they do in the game, probably don't care so much about which is the most popular 'mon and care more about what they think will have the best moveset for a Smash game.

duffmmann commented on 3DS eShop Bubble Pop World Fuses Match 3 Puzzl...:

I'm glad to see new uses for the AR cards that came with my 3DS, I find this encouraging.

I really think the Pokemon Card Game should have a new series where what you play can be scanned via AR of your 3DS and that way you can see your pokemon fight when you choose a move (on the 3DS). It'd be able to mark how much damage each pokemon can and has taken, as well as item cards and their effects. I'm sure this would be a large undertaking, but I really think it'd be possible and increase players of the trading card game, heck, I'd start playing (I have played the TCG since the first couple years they started coming out).

duffmmann commented on Hands On: Storing Pocket Monsters in Pokémon ...:

Also, for people like me, this may not be of interest now, but when Gen VII comes around, it will be incredibly handy. (I'm not the type to transfer Pokemon from far back, in fact I skipped gens III and V, which means that even though I have Platinum and plenty of Pokemon there, I can't transfer them to my copy of Y because I never got into gen V). Once Gen VII and beyond are released, this will no longer be an issue, I can skp gens like I have and still be able to transfer all my pokemon moving forward. So while I wont be buying this app now, I most certainly will in a matter of a few years.

@Prof_Clayton The Pixar thing was in regard to the quality of the story and writing. That being said, Pixar is creating its first live action movie as we speak about the 1906 Earthquake. (I found the news that Pixar would make a live action film upsetting when I heard it, but, supposedly its happening.)

duffmmann commented on Video: The Pokémon Game Show Sure Looks Like Fun:

@Firebird360

Wow, a pointless app got you hooked on the idea of collecting pokemon... yeah, something tells me you're going to LOVE Pokemon X and Y. In a lot of ways I envy you for never experiencing the series until this upcoming milestone. For while I skipped Generations 3 and 5, I got Red when it first came out and was hooked (and that was on the old 8 bit black and white GB graphics), and I watched the series evolve. And while each new generation improved and added great new features to the formula, no generation has made as massive of leap for the franchise as X and Y clearly will. So for you to start on this generation has got to be amazing. I mean I'm more excited for this generation than anyone before, and I've played the games. The only drawback to it all would be the fact that you might not have a full appreciation for the 5 generations leading up to it.

duffmmann commented on Shigesato Itoi Says Mother 4 Would Be "Impossi...:

context people, context. He was asked if he'd consider making Mother 4, he said impossible, maybe its impossible to consider because someone else is working on it for him (he gave the rights to another studio), or he's already working on it, so to consider making it wouldn't make sense as its already in development.

Or thats all just really wishful thinking...

duffmmann commented on MCV: Wii U Is A Stopgap System, Real Successor...:

I don't see why this would be the case considering how under powered the Wii was compared the 360 and PS3, and Nintendo never went about to try and compete with those systems power wise (unless you count this final year for the two competitors, which I wouldn't considering the Wii had a 6 year life span, falling within the standard for gaming consoles).

duffmmann commented on Review: Pokémon Dream Radar (3DS eShop):

I wish this was more like the Safari zone in pokemon. Keep most of it the same, but instead of just clouds, also have brush, and other things you have to push aside in hopes of finding some pokemon in the wild. When you see a pokemon, you should have the ability to throw rocks, berries, or safari balls at it. I think that would make for a much more clever and logical way to connect the 3DSware with Black 2 and White 2.

duffmmann commented on Retro City Rampaging To WiiWare Later This Year:

@Damo
I disagree, DSiware is still supported, and new games continue to be released for that download platform despite the fact that the 3DS is the current console. I see no reason why developers wont continue to make wiiware games if the Wii is capable of running them (afterall this would help sell games as more people have a Wii than those that will initially have a Wii U).

duffmmann commented on Behold This Boppin' BIT.TRIP FLUX Trailer:

to people complaining that we're not getting a real finale new game for the series, just consider Lilt Line that final game, I mean it totally could have the Bit.Trip. title if you ask me and its unique as well. As for this, I loved beat, its definitely my favorite of the 5, so more of that with new components sounds sweet to me!
