Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure. Dec 2, 2020 11:03:35 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Steve Mayles has created another new Donkey Kong Country 2 artwork to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game. Dec 4, 2020 11:55:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Did you ever spend a lot of time writing a big forum post, and then not post it because you felt like you were just rambling about nothing? Dec 15, 2020 16:03:14 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: That's practically a daily occurrence for me. And not just forum posts, but YouTube and Imgur comments, Reddit posts, Discord messages... Dec 16, 2020 22:53:58 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: BTW, updated the Christmas thread with the 2016 and 2018 playlists. Dec 16, 2020 22:54:45 GMT -5
Boo Destroyer: Suck it, Half-Life 3. Dec 21, 2020 11:54:59 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And the winner of First Post of 2021 is... Da Robot! ;) Jan 1, 2021 13:16:48 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: January 17 is the 1-year anniversary of Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE Encore, so I'll just take this opportunity to say that I like Tsubasa's cover of "Reincarnation" better than Kiria's original. Jan 16, 2021 11:54:58 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub. Jan 26, 2021 10:25:09 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)? Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil. Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy. Feb 1, 2021 8:09:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…? Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise. Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive. Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly. Feb 8, 2021 11:15:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1. Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...? Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get. Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game. Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
