Best part of print magazines (Not official ones however) is the person buying it is a customer not only advertisers.

Just looked at some of the content now. Wish I had known about it before good content (Hard to find these days).

@Grumblevolcano They are not, real hacks can be done by gateway users now afaict. (NSMB2 custom levels for example which means the doors are open the same as before).

Sky3DS isn't blocked (And it perhaps cannot be - maybe newer games could not work on it).

Ninjhax was not and is not really an issue.



unrandomsam commented on Curve Studios Announces Titan Attacks for 3DS ...:

I like Puppy Games - all of them I have played. (Titan Attacks! / Droid Assault / Ultratron / Revenge of the Titans).

Curve studio's have too many technical problems. (Framerate drops and bad controls etc).

Thomas Was Alone works well but it is not for me.

Stealth Bastard Deluxe
Velocity Ultra

(If they worked better I think I would enjoy all of the above.)



unrandomsam commented on Warhammer 40,000's Seminal Space Hulk Is Drift...:

All of the modern Games Workshop stuff seems to be so dumbed down.

I tried to play Warhammer Fantasy Battle and it was probably too complicated for my age. Then I played the one after that just called Warhammer which was fine.

The new ones are like playing Snakes and Ladders.

@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.
