I've toyed with a few different ideas but my current plan for GBA stuff is to homebrew my 3DS. It's able to run GBA games almost entirely natively because of how similar it's hardware is and this way I can consolidate my entire pre-switch Nintendo handheld collection onto one device. Plus it has better buttons than the DS lite and better screens than the DS phat, and games look super sharp in pixel perfect mode.

ARE YOU CHAOS? / I'm typing this on a 10 year old laptop.

This laptop is old enough to get it's first pokemon from Professor Oak and start it's Pokemon Journey. They grow up so fast.

My plan to upgrade to a new laptop probably won't be happening this year so I'm still rocking my mom's old Dell XPS l501x with it's first generation i5 processor. However, I managed to track down a FHD screen for it so I plan to upgrade from it's current 1368 x 736 resolution.

The CPU on it is a socket style CPU so I should be able to upgrade that as well but when we're talking about 10+ year old processor technology I'm not convinced the jump from a first generation i5 to an i7 would be worth it, especially since the i7 requires me to invest in a higher watt charger and the quad core i7 has a slower clockspeed than what I currently have.

The thing is an absolute champ though. It's a big bulky thing that has a fairly powerful cooling system and that combined with the SSD upgrade I did last year has bought it alot of life. Combined with how easy it is to repair for a laptop I suspect I'll be keeping it around for something even after I upgrade unless it completely dies out somehow.

So Skyward Sword is PAY 2 Win now. Nice.

I'm so happy this game got freed from Nicalis prison and I hope to get this version but I'm definitely still salty that I'm basically paying for a patch since I made the mistake of buying the Nicalis version.

ARE YOU CHAOS? / New Super Mario Bros. is 15 years old today.

Remember when New Super Mario. Bros. was new?

Apparently you still won't be able to submit new Vita games after July so **** you indie devs who bought a Vita Devkit in 2021.


Considering how many server issues they had, it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to capitalize on the PS3 and Vita's exclusive content. I could see them roping some sap into making an "Only on PS3 Download" section of the store for when they try to close it again.

There were apparently devs who literally just bought a Vita Devkit right before the announcement was made. The whole thing was a trainwreck.

Fine. I'll throw my hat in the ring.

1. Monster Hunter Rise (Switch)
2. Sonic Adventure (PC)
3. Freedom Wars (Vita)
4. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (DS)

The only problem is that Monster Hunter is stupidly addictive, to the point where I'm still listing it even though I have already cleared the village quests and completed the last Hub urgent that's currently available.

I might have a problem.

I keep forgetting to do a wrap up post but I should be able to get one tomorrow (knock on wood).

I don't understand why they didn't announce this when they announced that the website store was closing for PS3/Vita

It looks like the PS3 is having server issues with the PSN store. I can't imagine how that happened, I mean Sony's servers are nothing if not reliable.

I finished the story mode for this over the weekend and I'm having an absolute blast with the game. The movement is so good.

I'd rather have replays back personally.

Continuing Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO's Jim Ryan's legacy of incompetence and disdain for Sony's heritage, Sony finally officially confirmed today the closure dates for the PS3, PSP, & Vita PSN Stores. This follows last year's removal of those systems from their redesigned-to-be-**** browser-based store.

The PS3 & PSP online stores will go offline on 7/2/21, and the Vita's store will go down on 8/27/21. This effectively permanently kills off the Vita (which was still seeing new indie games), as Sony shut down manufacturing of Vita game cards years ago so no new physical media can be produced.

The one good(ish) piece of news from all this is that owners of these consoles will still be able to redownload titles from their Download History, provided they're willing to scroll through the thousands of pages of entries they've accumulated by this point (I did that once. Never again).

I fucking despise Jim Ryan. I've never seen someone so dedicated to killing the PlayStation brand, from his censorship policies almost exclusively against Japanese games, to his on-record disdain for older games, to the closure of Sony Japan Studios, to his lack of interest in making anything other than games in the Naughty Dog mold.
I just love the optics of Sony cutting off support for their first digital only console almost immediately after they launched the PS5 all digital version.

General Gaming / Re: Sitting on the sidelines: PS5 vs XB Series X

The Series X interface is, as far as I can tell, identical to the Xbox One's, which I like, and fits the approach Microsoft seems to be taking with the platform.
It's ironic that they're using the same ui considering this is the same company that introduced like 8 different ui overhauls on the 360.

As an official 3DS ambassador I come bringing good news about the 3DS. Beware the so called "successor" The Nintendo Switch. It is nothing but a false prophet.

I thought Khushrenada was supposed to be on top of this whole spambot thing and yet here I went and found one from January.

But the Switch... ...people are not worried about it's power,
That aged well.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Best of the Wii U eShop (Bonus Round E: N64 VC)
« on: March 09, 2021, 06:02:32 PM »
Having the DS version of Mario 64 on the VC as well makes the N64 version completely irrelevant tbh. The Wii U's N64 emulation is subpar, even compared to what you could get on Wii Mode and the DS version has an improved camera system and comes on the Wii U's vastly superior DS emulation.

Plus it comes with save state support and the fact that the DS version of the game was really good at faking analog input with the D-pad makes it feel much more authentic than something like the 8-way digital movement in 3D World.
