TalkBack / 1080 Snowboarding (Wii U) Review Mini
« on: January 18, 2016, 01:15:01 AM »

All 64 bits of snowboarding, now on your GamePad!

When was the last time you played a snowboarding game? For me the last one was on GameCube, well over a decade ago at this point, and even further back since I played 1080 Snowboarding on the Nintendo 64. Yet despite all that, I find going back to this 1998 class incredibly charming and rewarding.This game is from an era with little to no tutorials or handholding, in fact if you jump straight into a Match Race you may be surprised at just how hard it is to win the first race. As a veteran the controls came back to me like muscle memory, but newcomers might want to play around with the training modes to learn how to control your snowboarder correctly. The stunt modes such as the halfpipe and Event mode are great for getting to grips with the controls, and how you need to balance speed with skillful manoeuvring. Balance, speed, and momentum are incredibly important in this game and are all backed up with a very realistic physics model. This even extends to the way the snow realistically moves, and sounds.

However above all that this game has style, from the clothing, the branding, and the overall look for the characters and menus. It almost acts as a companion piece to Splatoon as a part of Nintendo’s history of being (or at least trying to be) cool. It’s perhaps most prevalent in the music which is a mix of rap and techno, with an ample supply of 90s-era voice samples.I had a lot of fun with 1080 Snowboarding both back in the day and now on Wii U, however I’m wary that some players might not appreciate the brutal difficulty straight out the gate. If you want to pretend like you’re learning how to balance on a snowboard from the comfort of your living room, like a challenge, and can deal with Nintendo 64 low resolution textures, then I say go for it.

In case some of you skipped the Star Wars bit (or are saving it for after you've seen the movie) we asked for your top 10 WiiU/3DS lists from 2015 based on your activity logs!
Feel free to post them here on the forum or email them to us at the usual address (famicast@...)

Famicrew OUT till 2016!

Get ready for episode 70, by sending your Japanese Christmas questions, or telling us what you want from the NX!

I might listen again and see if I can get a better score.

I guess Reggie heard me slamming him on the Famicast for not getting the deal to make Minecraft happen on WiiU.
Well played big man, well played.

Calling it now, Nintendo content = amiibo character unlocks.  :cool;

"despawn", i like that word!
It's like "unbreak" the game, or is it breaking the game?

"Re-fairing" the game?

Quick, vote on my Twitter poll!
Most people seem to disagree with you though so far...

More chance of getting me into Amiibo than Disentry Infinity!

So did you guys like the Yokai section? Live show will be interesting!

For informed opinions on Japanese culture, may I refer you all to the Famicast  :cool;
Yokai Watch talk next episode in fact, so please to be looking forward to it!

Despite James Jones' lack of Japanese cultural awareness, I did enjoy the bollocks talk!

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Should/will Nintendo follow PS4 price cut
« on: October 28, 2015, 08:08:21 AM »
Just in case no one has said it yet, the answer is "yes".
Yes in 2013
HELL YES in 2014

I feel like a stuck record now, but they've needed a $250 bundle for so long it's beginning to physically hurt now.
A $250 pre-loaded Splatoon or MK8 bundle would go down a treat.

I'll see you guys October 2016 where I'll copy/paste this exact same post again because they didn't do it this year.

Couple of things I forgot to mention about TFH, the lag and the disconnection I had...
Couple times it stopped mid game and I got an Internet browser style spinning circle. Another time it just crapped out altogether, although the that might have been a rage quitter.

Oh and my Chibirobo competition:

Anyone notice how the iCloud notes functionality won't work until El Capitan comes out?
Why even have it as an option if the OS isn't even out yet!?

Ah, you're forgetting that I'm exempt from all criticism and accusations of being a hypocrite. It's written in the Famicast contract that all co-hosts have to sign!

Glad to hear you're enjoying the banter, unfortunately I didnt see this message in time for episode 65 (that's already been recorded, in editing now) but I'll mention it in ep66!

They delayed it to add the 4-player online co-op mode I suggested.

Thanks for the nice comments duder!
I have to agree, any episode with none or less of me would be disappointing and not worth listening too.
Probably the same for Ty too.

But in all seriousness, thanks much for listening, and keep posting tips/advice/complaints for Sairus.
