TalkBack / Re: New Switch Firmware Adds Support For Bluetooth Audio
« on: September 14, 2021, 08:44:34 PM »
How low can the lat(ency) go!

Ever since trying and failing to play a smartphone rhythm game over the bluetooth connection with a car's audio deck and some gifted wireless speakers, I'm skeptical of wireless audio for video games. I am aware of low-latency codecs and hardware that will help in this issue, but I haven't made the purchase.

A wire will never betray you! . . . until it snaps.

Momotara sneaks back in to the top ten.

Japan's Covid response seems have been slowly worsening, and Nintendo being so opaque makes it easy to assume that their development has been harder hurt then their peers.

Still... it hurts a little that the 2020 darling of New Horizons hasn't received more meaningful updates. Especially if you are of the opinion that too much of what made Animal Crossing what it is was sacrificed for the HD visuals, terraforming, crafting, and other new features that New Horizons introduced.

I feel that I've abandoned my island quicker than my New Leaf village. Part of the reason why is that my neighbors have repeated dialogue in a speed that felt drastically quicker compared to New Leaf. Maybe when New Horizons 2.0 comes out, I'll be ready to fly back to my island.

Come for the timely and "timely" impressions on the latest Nintendo and other video games, stay for the child development psychology and overdue therapy sessions!

Let me tell you of the demons of gacha so you may never have to feel it for yourselves!

When you say "best practices", are those determined to be such by the fans? Like is this considered acceptable/the line most paying players won't cross? Or is it determined by developers/publishers? Just sort of informal standards of equilibrium most game producers have wound up at?

I don't know the true history behind it, but I assume it's the settled and informal terms after years of A/B testing by mobile game developers and publishers and audience feedback. It's important to note that Japan mobile games have had a decade plus of implementing gacha systems going all the way back to feature phones.

But what if... you didnt

This is a great writeup but I'm struggling to understand how the FOMO is this powerful

Ah, that's rub with these character-based slot machines.

To put it bluntly: We all may joke about it around the anime circles, but have you every considered a fictional character to (in some degree) be your wife/husband?

One aspect of how the system preys on the audience is on the attachment some audience members have on characters. The fans that consider or have bought character goods such as figurines, art prints, keychains, plushies, and other merchandise are the targets of a gacha RPG. Now you have a digital, living version of your favorite character that you can take on digital adventures (read: grinding)! This even works in new IP such as Dragalia Lost where you present a story around a fun character and then release a recruitable party member version in a later gacha (ex. Mym).

The other vector is the game's meta. Beta testers or early adopters who test out all the characters will make tier lists and will shout out who is the OP character to save up for and try to get. Case in point, Genshin Impact's Venti who has a powerful ultimate attack that stuns most enemies and gathers them in a wind vortex for easy elimination.

And the last and most dangerous part is for the obsessive compulsive that must have a big or complete collection of things.

Good show, especially with that tough question of the predatory monetary practices common to free-to-play games, gacha systems, loot boxes, and EA's FIFA Ultimate Team schemes.

Let me tell you of the demons of gacha so you may never have to feel it for yourselves!

Dragalia Lost, the original mobile game from Nintendo and Cygames, does have a system where you are guaranteed to get the 5-star (the maximum) character from a given gacha banner. This system is present in Cygame's web-based gacha JRPG, Granblue Fantasy, and is colloquially referred to as a "sparking" system. Basically, you gain a special token for each gacha pull in Dragalia Lost. 300 of those tokens can be exchanged for any featured character in the current gacha banner.

The "best practice" in the gacha space is that each 10-pull is equivalent to 25-30 USD. In Dragalia Lost, they sell a premium currency pack of 1230 Diamantium at US$24.99. You need 1200 Diamantium for a 10-pull on a gacha banner. So, discounting the free gacha currency, free summoning tickets, the pity rate system, the maximum amount a player can spend in getting a desired 5-star character in Dragalia Lost is (napkin math) about 750 USD.

If you wanted to know about the hot gacha-anime-ARPG-BOTW of Genshin Impact, that has the "best practices" of limited time banners, bonuses for pulling 10 times at once, and a cost rate of $20-27 per a 10-pull (depending on if you buy the worse value or the "best value" pack of premium currency. Genshin has a "guarantee system" where at 90 pulls you get the coin flip (50/50 chance) of getting a banner's featured 5-star character or weapon and at 180 pulls you are guaranteed to get the banner's featured 5-star. So, the napkin math to that is a player could be spending a maximum of US$360-480 to get their waifu. Now the fucked thing is that there's a character perk system where getting extra copies of a character (up to six extra copies, meaning pulling the same character seven times to unlock all the perks) will grant them bonuses that are sometimes very powerful, depending on the character.

Finally, you have Fate/Grand Order which has a 0.6% of summoning the featured 5-star Servant per pull and no pity, sparking, or guarantee system whatsoever. As you can guess, there are salt/horror stories of people spending a grand or more and not getting the limited-time 5-star Servant.

Can a switch pro only fit in a switch pro dock?

The dock can be purchased separately and it doesn't look drastically different from the first dock. I think it's safe to assume that the two docks are interchangeable with the two dockable Switches.

Ah, they Paimon-ed their silent protagonist.

I should check out the demo first, but it's good to read that the game is good.

Well, see ya next year, new SoC rumors!

While I would've bought in to a half-step upgrade, I'm glad to see that Nintendo has opted not to repeat the mistakes it made with the New 3DS line of systems where few were happy with the upgraded processing power (the few being the newcomers who could enjoy the steadier performance in games such as Monster Hunter Generations).

This does have me question as to the timing of the Switch's successor. A 2023 release would put it in line with the gap between the Wii and the Wii U. By 2023, the old, circa 2015 Nvidia Tegra System-on-a-Chip in the Switch would be 8 years old technology https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tegra#Tegra_X1. This is a gut feeling that makes no sense, but I'm thinking maybe Nintendo would rather avoid Metroid Prime 4 being a split-gen title as a matter of pride (of it being promised Switch-only/first title). Not that Nintendo ever showed that much reverence for the Metroid series for it to put the next generation of Nintendo hardware on hold, but maybe?

Then there's the chance that maybe Nintendo would want to coast on the Switch's success through 2023 and not release a successor to 2024. The money-making would probably make sense to Nintendo, but this notion has me nervous given the performance issues/quibbles in games such as Bowser's Fury and the Monster Hunter Stories 2 demo.
