This week in the news; E3 reveals, developers discuss hype in game development, the tragedy of Bloodborne's "happy" ending and how it ties into the themes of cosmic horror, why the writing in E3 demos and games can sound so bad and unnatural, Riot turns to fight toxicity in the workplace starting with Riot, how box art is made, Super Robot Wars V coming to PS4 and Vita with English text, how the Lion King helped to change PC gaming, postmortem on Banner Saga 2 and Stellaris, 22 things learned about Persona 5, Fallout 4 allows modders to report stolen content, a library dedicated to video game books, Ubisoft starts to permanently ban cheaters for first time offenses, Inafune wants to make Mighty No. 9 sequel, and more.

Other content I found interesting this week YU SUZUKI, TIM SCHAFER AND OTHERS DISCUSS HYPE IN GAME DEVELOPMENT OPINION: E3 demos prove we need better writers In this article he mentions Rhianna Pratchett who then talked about why we get the kind of lines we do in video games. I might have shared an article about this months ago where a writer talked about trying to give Batman believable lines to signify when he did certain actions in the Arkham games.

They did later remove the unneeded the in the description. Watch Dogs 2 And The Steam Users Who Hate Black People Speaking of the above, Jim Sterling takes a look at how not having a white protagonist has effected the games forums (developers really need to hire moderators and community managers). Though he knows some of the people in the forums are likely troll accounts (though anyone doing it to troll is indistinguishable ffrom someone posting in forums, social media, or comment sections on real accounts), he did immediately get some responses from what are, unfortunately, real accounts.

  9. This week in the news; Nintendo announces NX release with tweet and financial report, lots of Warhammer, researcher wins grant to create a theory of games, No Man's Sky was almost cancelled, Call of Duty 4 Remaster announced with poop tweet, how Jim Sterling gets around Nintendo monetizing his videos, the history of ragdoll physics, Australian parliament report calls for renewed game industry funding, how games are helping veterans recover from injury, Maddy Myers gives her thoughts on the Street Fighter modding community, the rise of Dark Souls, Long War team to create five more mods for XCOM 2, Chinese developer talks about difficulty of development in China while discussing his game about a possibly never ending train ride, how a Mario Maker rivalry lead to getting punched in the balls, and more. Nintendo Announces NX Launch Date With a Tweet and a Financial Report NX won't be sold at a loss Nintendo's president gets grilled on its mobile business, NX plans Call Of Duty 4 Remastered Apparently Confirmed With Poop Emoji I kind of like this new companies not giving a fuck style marketing, also a little strange that they found a tweet that was over two years old to reply to, so they must have came up with the idea to do this and then actively searched for the best tweet to respond to. Researcher Espen Aarseth wins $2.3M grant to create a theory of games Australian Parliament report calls for renewed game industry funding Calling the SWAT team on your neighbor could soon carry a 20-year prison sentence Would be good to see harsher penalties for that. Not sure why people writing about this keep referring to it as a prank when people clearly do it to cause fear or to endanger the lives of people to get them to stop doing something, terrorism or reckless endangerment (in addition to the whole false police report thing) depending on who it is aimed at would probably be a more accurate description.

In this update they talk about ships, ship bridges, head models, animations, and the adventure mode.

Using an emulator, a close mounted 3D stereo set up, a custom keyboard mapping that includes a quick save/load so he could figure out where he was and what to do by repeating very short sections (trial and error) and five years of patience that's well beyond anything I could hope to have, he finally did it. In this era of bad business practices, internet trolling, bad shit happening in the world in general and gamers not being that respectful to each other, I'm so glad to see a story like this when we can see all join together and say that's beautiful. What awesome dude and I wish I'd heard about this guy earlier. The first vid is from back in 2011 and gives an insight into exactly how he plays the game and the second is the when he gets to Gannon. Please watch these and give this guy a sub. He deserves it. Here's a more detailed article http://www.dorkly.com/post/76935/how-blind-gamer-beats-ocarina-of-time-after-5-years-of-trying
  11. Well with the recent showcase of the upcoming Zelda WiiU I gotta say, I'm really looking forward to this game when it's finally released, what do you guys think of it so far? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aklpJK0RcTM This is the demo to the game if you haven't seen it yet.
  12. So I'm sure a lot of people saw the trailer for the upcoming Zelda WiiU, not Hyrule Warriors (although I'm looking forward to that game) and I gotta say I'm really hyped, for the promise of complete exploration like in the early Zelda games and how gorgeous the fields of Hyrule looks, it's probably the best I have seen in a Zelda game to date, but what do you guys think of it and for those of you that don't own a WiiU, will this convince you to get one
  13. http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/09/09/hyrule-warriors-limited-edition-is-exclusive-to-nintendo-world/ IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO LIVES NEAR OR IS GOING TO GET ONE OF THESE PUPPIES LET ME KNOW!
  14. The Distribution of Costumes is as thus: Amazon gets Twilight Princess Gamestop gets Ocarina Best Buy gets Skyward Sword Club Nintendo Registration gets Ganondorf costume like that bad ass Demise inspired one. Or you could not preorder and bank on them being made available to all at some point. Either way, If you're pre-ordering for a specific costume set then that's the list.
  15. http://www.gamerheadlines.com/2014/07/legend-of-zelda-majoras-mask-leaked/ Could it be real this time? What do you guys think? Legit? Also, would you just like to see an enhanced, but straight port of the original or would you like to see something changed? Personally, I think I'd like it if the song of double time would give you the option between skipping 12 hrs and 24 hrs.
  16. I don't know if we're allowed multiple threads in the Nintendo section, but here I am with another rant! As of late, I've been noticing that Nintendo games have been really...weird. They've been trying to do something new and flashy while staying with the old, but still making it an amazing experience. Some of these games, like the new DKC: Tropical Freeze, and Kid Icarus: Uprising, are amazing, but others, like the topic of my previous rant/review/whatever, Fire Emblem: Awakening did not quite hit the mark it maybe should have. So here we are with the next game on my list to rip apart: Legend of Zelda- oh it's in the title already! This game has been praised so much, but the only reason I can find is that it's because of nostalgia. This 3DS Legend of Zelda takes a slightly altered version of the overworld of Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and creates a beautiful world to explore and do classic Zelda-y things in! But it has a twist: you have to rent the dungeon items and can therefor do dungeons in any order! This single mechanic is something I hate! But I don't hold it against the game for that. It's a mechanic that would understandably split fans a bit. While you can do the dungeons in any order and go exploring much earlier, it also reduces the character progression of Link to ONLY passive upgrades and stones to power up the Master Sword! Besides some sidequests (some of which are necessary to continue), you can only get items from the rental shop! Though you can buy them later for a large price! Not that that isn't an issue! There are rupees EVERYWHERE. If you spend even a short time exploring, you can make a ton of money! While I'm OK with Zeldas having an emphasis on money, it shoulded be the reward you get for almost ever secret area you explore! The items themselves? Well none really push the envelope. The Tornado spinner, which lets you fly upwards and stun enemies around you, is a cool gadget we haven't really seen before. The rest? Hookshot, Bow, Hammer, Another Stick that Raises Sand, Stick that Throws Fire, Stick that Drops Ice, and Boomerang (why isn't this a dungeon/ side quest item at least?!). Series standards. The fact that you lose these upon defeat can get annoying on hero mode. But since I played normal to completion, I already knew a bunch of places to get large amounts of rupees very easily, so I didn't have any issues there. Heart Containers (not pieces, containters) return, but to get them, you have to play the minigames and beat certain scores! I wouldn't have an issue with this, if there weren't so many minigames that kind of overshadow the other ways you get heart pieces: via exploration. The exploration in this game is great! It's short lived as you can get pretty much all the side items right away which means you can at least find where they're hidden. The reusing of the LTTP map made the world feel really small, and I never felt like I was going that all far a distance to get anywhere except when climbing the mountain. That said, the minigames are fairly unique, save for the one where you pay rupees to go find rupees. The side quests, too, are a bit of a disappointment. The one for the swim power is ok, but it also lets you get the Pegasus boots. So once you have the painting power, you can get those instantly! The quests are also very very easy! All involving bringing an item you can easy find or finding something that's in a blatantly obvious place. The main side quest, the rescueing of the mamiamias is the best in the game. It's like the gold skultulas from Ocarina of Time, except they give you a map telling how many are in an area, which makes it much easier later in the game to get a ton of them just wandering around. And I have to admit, the powered up weapons are very fun to use, despite getting old quite quickly. Now I'll talk about my big issue with this game, and the reason for the topic's title: THE LENGTH. This game is short. If you've played a Zelda before, you can beat this game easily. The dungeons are short, the overworlds are fairly small, the bosses are so EASY. The bosses I have forgiven after looking back at previous Zelda games, but it sucks that some are recycled normal enemies and get recycled themselves as minibosses, some are even minibosses from previous games! The unique ones, however, are pretty cool. The dungeons, however, had so much potential. Each dungeon is amazingly crafted to fit it's theme and challenges you in ways a good Zelda should! But then it just abruptly ends and you get a boss fight. I'd have liked to see either more dungeons or longer dungeons. If you compare the average length of LBW (Link Between Worlds) to complete a dungeon, to the length of Spirit Tracks or Phantom Hourglass to complete a dungeon, the latter two take noticabley longer! I had an interesting conversation about this with someone awhile ago. They said that this was ok because, if you compared it to LTTP, the dungeons then were short and the bosses simple, making this an evolution of that formula. I say: Ok, that's fine, but as a Zelda game trying to fit in amongst the rest, we also have to compare it to past Zeldas in the areas where Zeldas stay the same, so if the dungeons, often the highlight of many Zeldas, are majorly lacking in length or well-scaled difficult (which these aren't), then it truly is a fault for the game. You can't fault LTTP for it's dungeons, because it was the 3rd Zelda and trying to establish that formula, but recent Zeldas have taken the dungeon and turned it into an amazing highlight. The ones in LBW just don't leave that much of an impression aside from the well-designed themes and puzzles. In respect to the dungeons, the game, overall, is short. I beat it 100% in less than a week. I still haven't beaten Phantom Hourglass or Spirit Tracks, and whenever I go back to them, it takes me 2-3 weeks to get to where I last left off, which is close to the end of both. Now, length can be looked pasted if the experience is great. Here, the experience IS great, with a nice new villain, interesting plot twist, and nice characters who we never really get to interact with. But, with how short it is, when you get to the final dungeon, you feel like the next plot twist is on its way, but it isn't. You're at the end, you'll beat Ganon, end of story. So while I liked the way the game played and the characters it had, it didn't have enough depth or size to it to make me want to enjoy it further after beating it 100% on normal and hero modes. Even the painting power isn't that memorable. Yes, you use it to create a bunch of new puzzles, but it doesn't do much aside from allow you to walk around walls. Without any other real application, a lot of puzzles are basically: 1. See if you can use any of your items to do something. 2. turn into a painting and walk around the walls. 3.after find a the area you needed to use the painting to get to, use the required item for the dungeon to do something. The formula repeats and repeats. It keeps it fresh with the large variety of puzzles, but a lot of them use this formula more than once to solve them. If you liked LTTP, you may enjoy this game. But I don't think it's worth the hype or popularity it got. If a game cannot keep you engrossed long enough to make the experience feel fulfilling, no matter how great that experience may be, you won't find yourself very interested. If the game had had some more creative bosses, maybe just 1 or 2, and the dungeons had been longer, maybe a few more sidequests and items you can get in dungeons that you NEED for the second half of the game, like getting the hookshot in the dungeon requiring you to rent the hammer, or getting the boomerang from the dungeon needing the wind rod. I feel that could have worked. Overall, my friend put it best: "It's like a shiny gold bone, it's pretty and you love to look at it, but it doesn't have enough meat on it to make it a meal." I'd love to hear everyone elses thoughts on the game, whether they agree or disagree.

  19. Nintendo! Our childhood heroes failed to reach their targeted sales last year with their Wii U. 2.8 million consoles so far. While Xbox One and Ps4 already has passed their total consoles sales i´ve recently been looking into this. Here´s what i believe is the reason. When the Nintendo Wii U was announced at the E3 pressconference i was confused. A new controller? is it a new handheld? looks a bit clumsy. But that was far from the truth. This confused disaster of an announcment is probably why the console got such a slow start. atleast here in Europe. Sure the 3ds also had a rough start but as soon as the games started to show, sales just exploded. Games Where are they? not on the Wii U for sure. A whole year into its lifecycle and we havent seen any of their Main titles.Where´s the Zelda? Wheres the Mario? Are they even planned as a release in 2014? Nintendos own games are nearly always great, and is the reason why gaming is what it is today. Wii U needs your main games Nintendo. Or your console will be shortlived indeed. According to alot of third party developers. Development for the Wii U is hard, Mainly cause of a lack of devkits and tools. And now Nintendo also has a controller developers need to code for. This is not good, Losing third party devs decreases the number of total games for the machine with alot. With studios whining so much these past years over the PS3 for being a complete disaster to port or just mainly make games for. Now the Machine has some third party games such as assassins creed. but if the console sales still dosent kick off, Ubisoft will leave and never look back. Why didnt they ask the studios what they wanted from their next console? Like Sony and Microsoft? Right now it really looks grim. I refuse to play their old NES and SNES games on a brand new HD machine. Online Features Sure the online features has improved from the old Wii. but still lacking in the social media aspect. No tweeting or writing Facebook statuses on the Nintendo. This is easily fixed with updates for sure. Performance Now the console itself is not exactly a power house. And thats putting it nicely. a little faster than the Xbox 360 and has alot more videoRAM and Ram. Compared to Sony´s and Microsoft´s new machine its a fart in space. I remembered the time when Nintendo had the most performance and were the place to go for the best looking games. But that was long ago. People probably just waited for Sony and Microsoft to make their move instead of buying an already outdated console. Thats what i would have done, if i didnt have all the Zelda games since Majoras Mask, And Mario games since Mario 64. Thats what i Play on The Wii U atm. A remake, and old Wii games. Wich does not look good on a High Definition TV btw. With all of the good looking games for Sony and Microsoft´s consoles, would you bother with this one? Is Nintendo`s own titles enough to carry it from the pits? Should Nintendo stop with hardware and only go software like sega? Iwata from nintendo is thinking about branching out to the mobile market btw, so you can bet your as you are going to play Zelda Ville or Mario Ville in the near future. I hope they make it.
  20. It might be too early for me to start posting about this since I haven't finished the game yet, but after putting in hours and hours I think I can safely say that this is a great entry into the Zelda series (and a good first entry for me, being a Zelda virgin). [spoiler-Free] Both the 3D effect and the music are very impressive and the gameplay mechanics are both balanced and enjoyable. Very early in the game you can choose to rent every equipment item for a very low price and explore more advanced dungeons earlier, netting greater rewards. However, if you die the merchant will take back any rented items and you'll have to pay the rental fee again to get them back. It's great motivation to take caution and not rush through particularly tricky spots. For a much higher fee you can outright purchase the items so you don't have to worry about losing them, but you'll need to save up a ton of rupees to own even a few items. The new mechanic where you can transform yourself into a painting on a flat wall makes for some surprisingly deep gameplay; secret rooms can sometimes be found by squeezing through tiny slits in the walls and quicker to get over a pit or gap by flattening yourself against a wall and trotting over. The ability and all of the items depend on an energy bar that depletes quickly and regenerates slowly, so some care is needed; you may use your bow & arrow to take out enemies and have to quickly get to a moving platform by becoming a painting, but you'll fall to your death if you don't have enough energy to transition over. You have to constantly be aware of your situational limits, otherwise you'll suffer for it. The combat and other gameplay mechanics are very smooth and easy to get into, delegating all of the inventory control through the touch-screen, with some simple shortcuts to efficiently swap gear to use. I can't comment yet on the complete scope of the realm you play in or make any decisive conclusions on the characters since I haven't finished the game. There are a ton of points I could bring up, but they'd be major spoilers. Highly recommend checking this game out for the 3DS. I may not be done, but as I mentioned I've already sunk hours and hours into it and I still have some big quests to take care of that'll take just as long to complete. Anyone else currently playing this game? Anyone thinking of picking it up?
  21. Hi I recently got a 3DS to play the new Pokemon games but also to play The legend of Zelda. When I was a kid I didn't have a console so never got to play any other LoZ game than Twilight Princess (I played other games a little when I was over at a friends house) and I won't be getting a Wii U any time soon if ever so I was thinking of getting the titles for 3DS. The question is which one to get first. The remake of the classic or the brand new one. If you have played them or are planning on getting them please let me know what you think.
  22. Hi, there has been a thought that has crossed my mind, is Nintendo out of touch? I think yes, but there is still hope.I think Nintendo is taking a step in the right direction with third party games, looking just as good as PS3 and 360 (still struggling with ps4 and Xone) ,have u seen arkham origins on Wii u? It looks great! But not many people are buying Wii u, I think I know why.Here are a few reasons why I think Wii u is not selling and out of touch: 1.) Third Party Support Its not the fact that they have third party games at all, that's a great thing, problem is how they did it. When AC 3, COD, and Arkham City came to Wii U, many people already had a ps3 or 360, so didn't feel the need, unless they want to play "the kids games" like Mario,Zelda,or SSB. And they still feel that way. Even some companies will make their games inferior on Wii U, (Arkham Origins Multiplayer, but their not missing much), and some games are not even coming to Wii U, and is not good in the consumer's eye. Even with the new SSB and Mario Kart coming soon, they will sell more, but some people don't want to drop $300 on a couple of games. 2.) Their Name When the NES, Gameboy, and SNES where out, games mostly were what's now considered kids games. Yes they did have mortal Kombat on SNES, but it was censored. I don't know why but Nintendo's always trying to be more kid friendly, even though they learned from Mk and put blood in MK 2, most of the games they focus on are Mario, Zelda, etc. So because of that, hardcore gamers (alot of them) don't buy nintendo products because they think that all they have are those games. I side with ReviewTechUsa with the idea of Nintendo making a mature exclusive, make a game that you can only buy on Wii U, gets mostly scores of 9-10, and appeals to mostly hardcore gamers. They should also learn from PlayStation. While they have some games are marketed towards kids, (Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank), they also have mature games for hardcore gamers (God of War, Uncharted, Killzone). Nintendo, while having Zelda being there closest to being mature, over half of there exclusives are marketed towards children. So they should make that hardcore exclusive. 3.) DVD/Bluray/Digital Download OK, this makes no sense. This has been a problem for 12 years starting with GameCube, can be excused for small discs and cheaper than PS2 and Xbox, then Wii, but just for being cheaper, but Wii U just takes the cake, yes it is cheaper than ps4, and Xbox One, but nintendo is way over due. And if they can't do that, have the option to buy or rent movies on the eshop. If they do sell movies tell me because I don't have a wii U. They at least need DVD. 4.) Advertising One. That is how many ads I have seen for the Nintendo Wii U, TOTAL! (Yes, taking this from ReviewTechUsa again) They had one year, a whole year to tell the world about the console. Even though that it's unlikely that they will sell more than Xbox and PlayStation, wii u should atleast be along side a ps4 and/or Xbox 1 . One big reason Sony and Microsoft will sell more is that PS4 and Xbox One have been advertising their products for a while. Especially Xbox with Mtn. Dew and Doritos. Wii U had a get out of jail freecard in for the whole year, and barely did anything to sell their product. So those are why I think Nintendo is out of touch, and isn't selling well. If you thought of ,tell me, I would like to know.
  23. Just curious if anyone here likes Zelda
  24. This forum is to discuss which zelda game is the greatest of all time Write down your opinion I would love to hear about it
