2521  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Nintendo 3DS LL (XL in the States) Announced on: July 05, 2012, 02:21:16 PM
When I first got a 3DS I played with the slider a lot but I could never get to where I could see 3D effects anyway so I always have it off.

After looking at the screen shots in the IGN article the bigger one is noticeably worse looking but the difference is small enough that I am sure I won't notice when playing something.

I'm really enjoying the video game, but I'm debating whether the actual film will be worth $4 plus 2 hours and 18 minutes of my time.

Where the heck can you see first runs for $4?  Even the matinee around here is $7 - and Iowa is usually cheaper than the rest of the country.

I am probably a terrible consumer anyway.  I am very tolerant of lower res graphics but that means the 3DS XL is a great buy. smile

Circle Pad Pro XL is also coming, apparently.

So if you bought a 3ds at launch, you got screwed. If you bought a cpp for it, and now wanna upgrade, screwed again bc you have to buy the cpp AGAIN too! I have a original 3ds and love it, but silly Nintendo..
I'm not defending Nintendo's choice to not include a circle pad pro in the new model but you're not really screwed if you prefer portability over the larger screen.  The new model isn't going to fit in a pocket very well and as pointed out many times already, the graphics are stretched to fill the new screen so 3DS games are going to look worse and non 3DS games are probably going to look terrible since they are already stretched on the normal 3DS.

Maybe but I never felt DS titles looked bad on the XL so I don't see why they would look worse on the 3D XL.

Gametrailers review.

Overall they give it a 7.6  which I seems low considering that they seem to like it.

2529  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Dredd on: June 25, 2012, 09:01:51 PM
I agree it looks more like the comics but just slavishly following the comics doesn't mean it is good.  Things that work great as drawings don't necessarily translate into real life.

2530  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Pixar's next movie: Brave on: June 25, 2012, 03:08:16 PM
Did no one see this over the weekend?

Well I did and I loved it.  It was beautiful, the story was good and the acting great.  It was right up there in the top 5 Pixar films for me.

I am also very happy the previews didn't really give away the story.  I had no idea what was going to happen and that made it more fun.

So that trailer looked like they tried to shove The Raid right in the middle of their movie...

Yes, that was the movie. It does seem like they saw it and said "wouldn't that exact same story look good in the Dredd universe?!"

Fire Emblem is coming to it.  

Nintendo's latest Fire Emblem game is coming to the States. Fire Emblem: Kakusei (Awakening) is a tactical RPG released in Japan just a few months ago. The gameplay retains many of the elements featured in previous entries in the franchise. The character creator has been greatly expanded, and players can also have their heroes pair up and marry other characters.

Not really noteworthy but I liked what the person wrote to me after they got it.

Thank you so much!
I got my vita yesterday.
I like it very much!
It is my pleasure to buy it from you.
I am so happy!!!

Thanks a million!!!

It made me feel happy to know someone would enjoy it so much.

I'm always up for more R&C.  I wonder what "giving you a whole new way to play" means.  Move compatibility perhaps?

It will use the Move. smile

What I came away with was a lot of perspective.  When you think you might die or have a stroke and lose some semblance of who you are, you really get some clarity on things.  The things I've not done in my life, the wrongs I've not set right, and the things that truly matter become crystal clear.  Never take for granted what you have, because it can be gone in the blink of an eye.

Your going to buy a sports car and get a 20 something girlfriend who used to be a playboy bunny aren't you!

Seriously, I hope they figure it all out soon and that it is something simple.

If you were interested in the brush they use in the video, they posted this on their Facebook page about it.

Travis Ho commented on Autumn Dynasty's Wall post.

A better video showing gameplay

2546  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Autumn Dynasty: iPad Real Time Strategy on: May 22, 2012, 07:47:48 PM
Stole the title from TouchArcade's forums but I thought it was a good title and a good topic.

Links to company's sites

And Youtube video of gameplay.

I think it looks quite interesting.  I will be checking reviews when it hits (supposedly this week)

I am sure this is just a sign of how I am old or not hip or something but I didn't like it.

Remember when James Bond used to be fun?  Where he had cool gadgets, wild adventures, beautiful women, and always a glib line.  Even the Sean Connery stuff (which was a lot less cheesy than Moore's stuff) wasn't this grim. 

He is no longer a super, smooth spy.  He is Jason Borne with an English passport.  And don't get me wrong I liked those films - but they were not Bond movies.  For me neither is this stuff.

I just finished watching it and it was surprisingly good.   Action was good, story solid (if overdone), and it looked good.

I will put this question in spoiler tags since the movie isn't out yet.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Why is Michael Fassbender wearing a helmet on the planet?  Even if it was an unbreakable environment it shouldn't matter to him.  Or is it another use of the "we don't know he is a robot" plot device they used in the first film.
