unrandomsam commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

@FragRed They have stuff that always makes money and don't take too many risks. Total War and Football Manager are very safe bets. (Total War has loads of DLC as well that is hardly ever discounted so it must sell well). Then there is Sammy which also always makes money. Sonic and Aliens are the only even slightly risky things they do. Then there is Atlus as long as that makes a profit it is ok + AM2 making Arcade games (Border Break has made them 100,000,000$).

Problem is them being screwed over by Gearbox and Big Red Button Entertainment.



unrandomsam commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Emphasizes the Nintendo Diffe...:

@Quorthon Thing about Amazon is they at least are a reasonable competitor most of the time (Or number one in some things).

@3dcaleb It will more than likely Stream from a PC for the full library and play indies and Valve games (Due to SteamOS). Thing is most of those indies are already on the Vita. At the moment there is Civilisation V / Borderlands 2 & Pre Sequel and Football Manger + Valve + indies.



unrandomsam commented on NINJHAX Exploit Is All About Nintendo 3DS Home...:

@PlywoodStick No way to touch any of that part from usermode none of the dangerous things are possible. (Same way you cannot just copy downloads as it is from someone elses 3DS to your sdcard). Absolute worst thing that could happen is the sdcard gets corrupt (Can be put back in and the stuff downloaded again no problem whatsoever).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Secures Plenty of Nominations in The ...:

Broken Age is nowhere near as good as it should be. (It will be more obvious when Grim Fandango is re-released soon).

Legend of Grimrock 2 and Astebreed are glaring omissions from the indie category. (Both great examples of the types of games they are - better execution than Shovel Knight for certain).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Secures Plenty of Nominations in The ...:

They should actually win some some this time. (That is not to say they will).

Astebreed should have been in best indie. (Transistor I think is better than Shovel Knight as well just because its more inventive).

Every time I see Visual Concepts I think that is the one acquisition Nintendo should have definitely done when Sega was selling it.

Bravely Default is the genuinely worst thing I have played to the end this year. (Think it was this year - first week in January).



unrandomsam commented on Review: Super Mario Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

@brewsky I mean working indistinguishably from real hardware. No noticeable changes switching from the VC to Real Hardware and back again. (For me on GBA - Tested Warioware : INC - tiny difference at the absolute best I can do on the grid but otherwise its just the same),

SNES I compared Super Mario World (Super Famicom cart / Wii VC / bsnes / Wii U VC). Ignoring the awful filter. bsnes or the cart are fine. Wii VC is not quite right but not that different. Wii U VC is wrong. (Connecting to a CRT doesn't make any difference).



unrandomsam commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

@Nintendobro He definitely isn't lazy but I think him doing something else would be more enjoyable for me. (Kid Icarus : Uprising is my favourite kind of game - not a sequel really good unexpectedly). Very rare something like that happens - he is one of the few people who has done so recently.



unrandomsam commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

For me anyway only 60fps games are worth considering which discounts most stuff on the 3DS or that Sony has. (Wii U is much better).

There are no valid excuses whatsoever for the PS4 not being 60fps all the time. (I refuse to believe the people making these games do not realise that it is always better).



unrandomsam commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

@rayword45 They are not that bothered. (Or at least they care more about the clicks). This article has the effect of people realising if you want homebrew (Or piracy with one of the new flashcards) don't update from 9.2 - Few seconds on gbatemp which they link to and you find that out.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

Ubisoft are absolute scumbags. (They are like I remember EA was but isn't as much any more).

(They are also liars having specifically stated that if an Assassins Creed game wasn't ready it would be delayed).



unrandomsam commented on Free Sonic Boom 3DS Theme Now Available For Do...:

@Grumblevolcano What I don't understand is why after the metacritic for Assassins Creed Unity (And Watchdogs) is so high but the games are garbage people don't think something shady is going on. (And with the price tanking for Ubisoft after about 2 weeks consistently people get stuff straight away).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Download: 13th November (Europe):

Just Crystalis left on GBC that I am interested in when I get Bionic Commando : Elite Forces. (Possibly Dragon Quest III but I think it is unlikely and the new mobile version will probably be based on the SFC best version).



unrandomsam commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

@Agent721 On a CRT ? That makes the most difference. All Stars or World on the Super Famicom or anything on the NTSCU Wii is pretty much just the same for me anyway. (I have specifically tested it).

Plus most people are going on the NES port of his not the Arcade which is the gold standard. (With a Arcade joystick as it was supposed to be played)



unrandomsam commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@LDXD I think that is a bit optimistic. When they are running at 720p/30fps it is going to need a fair bit of power to run properly. (Especially deliberately unoptimized stuff). Mine was upgraded in 2012 but even though it should be fine. (2 7950 + Crossfire). In reality I am not sure it will be.
