Zyph commented on Video: Xenoblade Chronicles X May Have Been Su...:

Anyone would be dissapointed. I know I am.
BUT to be fair,
If we were to compare it for example in the fields or city, It's still the same graphics-wise except for that particular scene. And if anyone is familiar with the technicalities of 3D graphics, 'target renders' usually doesn't equate to the final build. Happens to almost all games not just this one. It's still by far the most visually gorgeous game Nintendo and Monolith ever produced.



Zyph commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

Even it was just a [intelligent] guess on his part, I highly doubt it's just a "controller" of some sort. It won't just betray long time Nintendo system owners but they will also betray themselves and what they've built over the years. Iwata already stated that it will be a dedicated gaming platform to "reassure" loyal users that they're still in the hardware-software scene and not purely mobile. And those users are console/handheld players which IMHO will feel betrayed if this guess would actually become reality. They also stated that their QOL is another, separate business pillar for them and not necessarily relates to their dedicated gaming business, only the "know-hows".

With all the negativity surrounding Wii U (despite the wonderful line-up they have this year and the next), l doubt they'll just dive into unknown territory that they very well know would just add fuel to the fire. They can't afford to screw up 2 generations in a row.



Zyph commented on Japanese Xenoblade Chronicles X Video Presenta...:

I still don't understand why the strong marketing push Japan is having with this game and nothing much in the west. Still no proper PR in the states and Europe. Sure, Japan is getting it earlier but still. The last stream isn't even officially translated yet. The fan translation was pretty good though. I'm really hoping they'll push a strong marketing campaign here before the NA/EU launch, especially these streams. This game is even launching earlier then FF15 but that has more PR and media articles.



Zyph commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

The "improvement" they're talking about might suggest that physical copies of the game might require some sort of mandatory installation of some parts of the game to the console to decrease loading time. So if you're getting the digital version, this "improvement" might not be implemented on that and it's possible the download could be equal or more than 25GB.

Obviously I'll be buying the packaged version of the game. 25GB will takes WEEKS to download from where I live.



Zyph commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:

Whenever I grab my 3DS XL I always hold it at the top and bottom. Meaning I almost always touch the game cartridge at the top. It always feel as though I might accidentally pop the cart out, so this is a nice thing to have actually.



Zyph commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

What a way to put it. It's not that Nintendo gamers don't want AC titles. It's just that most sales were raked in by PlayStation and Xbox (and we all know why). To add to that, they delayed Rayman Legends back then and now with Watch Dogs. So I really think they're partly to blame for Nintendo gamer's current attitude towards them.



Zyph commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

Game "mods" always lead to exploits that leads to hardware/system-wide hacking that leads to pirating games. I don't like this.
I used homebrew. I think they're cool and all. But if it should lead to piracy in the long run? Not good...



Zyph commented on Nintendo Files Patent for "Eye Tracking" Devic...:

@TheRealThanos Can't find it either. I think it wasn't a DSiWare game but a packaged software. Not sure though. And all of the things you said is true. Thanks for that. It seems these people just takes things for granted. I'm not biased or trying to defend Nintendo in any way, but those "anti-gimmick" guys doesn't even try to see the value in what Nintendo is trying to do (gameplay-wise) even if they won't use them at all. I always thought, what if these "gimmicks" were actually the standard of gaming since long ago and the "traditional" method of playing were the gimmicks. Now the original PS Eye for the PS2 was a gimmick. Not sure for the PS4 though. The Kinect imo isn't 'cause it adds value to games in some ways, but you could argue that most of the games using it says otherwise.



Zyph commented on Nintendo Files Patent for "Eye Tracking" Devic...:

@daveh30 Yeah but they're not the first one to use it. And besides the patent focuses on the parallax 3D effect on 2D displays. In Sony's case, they're using Project Morpheus for that. Spectators will still see the game being played normally on the TV. As for the patent, even if you're not the one wearing the glasses or the head mount, you can still see the effect on the 2D display.



Zyph commented on Nintendo Files Patent for "Eye Tracking" Devic...:

Aside from Johnny Lee's Wiimote concept, the idea was already implemented on the DSi with Looksley's Line Up using the inner cameras for motion tracking. Remember that game?
The concept of the tech is really amazing if executed properly. I prefer this method for creating 3D parallax "illusions" rather than having to sit directly in front of a 3D TV. I read the whole patent application and there's definitely a lot of potential.



Zyph commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

Shooters. A great example of creative immaturity. Yeah they're great and sometimes competitively fun. They have unique aspects to them across all the shooters available. But shooters are still shooters. You fire a gun to kill. That's it. That's basically the premise of these games. Whatever you put on top of that is just icing on the cake IMO. That said, I still enjoy playing some of them. But that's not really the point. Don't even compare them to the hundreds of platformers out there. You can be more creative on those than games constantly firing guns and explosives.



Zyph commented on Developers Outline The Creative Process for Cr...:

This game looks like a ton of fun! I recommend watching the Splatoon match between NCL devs and the Treehouse guys. So fun to watch. You can clearly see the developers having a blast themselves. Especially Sakaguchi-san.



Zyph commented on Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique A...:

It's like even if the game bombed he won't have any regrets! I like it!
The graphics are cool for me and also the style of combat. It was going to be developed originally for the PS360 afterall. And with all those publisher changes I wouldn't be surprised by the changes up to this point. We still got a year so they can still improve on it visually.



Zyph commented on Mercedes DLC Confirmed for Mario Kart 8 in the...:

I don't understand this people in the comments.
Even though this kart (car?) doesn't really suit Mario Kart does not mean it doesn't "suit" the game. Your reasoning is because there are already real car simulator games out there and it doesn't fit in the game.You can still get the quirkiness and craziness of Mario Kart just as the other karts available in the game. When was the last time you saw a Mercedes being hit by turtle shells? It's also FREE so why the hate?
