Nintendo Gaming / Re: Switch 2 Speculation

Adrock I think the thing is the solution is the same, but because there is actual hardware in the dock you don’t have to worry about heat problems in the main unit. So it allows for a more powerful performance boost while docked. And since it would be around from the very beginning it would hopefully be used more.

Well if it was out of the Box Nintendo could allow the dock to upscale it. Developers would aim for undocked mode and a scaler could turn on additional particle, lighting effects and such.

NickMitch:  That is an interesting idea.  We had talked about those ideas with the Switch Pro but the internals of the Switch were just not capable of that.

If you were do design it from the get go.  Maybe 2 USB 3, One for boosting performance like a graphics card and RAM upgrade and one that is for charging and sending information to the TV.  (Maybe they actually don't need 2)  But it would theoretically work like an external graphics card.  Then Nintendo can allow developers to turn on extra features when docked. 

I like the idea, but I am sure others won't.  To me it makes sense and would even allow for future proofing if needed.

Shorty:  I agree, I have low expectations.  Batman vs. Superman isn't great, but it isn't great for 2 reasons.  1) Tonally it is all wrong.  The music, and colors, everything just didn't work for me.  Next, (And really this argument is a double edged blade) We hadn't had Superman be Superman yet.  So the battle over ideology just can't exist yet.  Maybe if there was a couple of montages comparing Batman's crime fighting and life to Superman's that could have worked. 

This idea of mine being a double edged blade is simple, the argument could be made that IF Superman had been Superman for a long time then Batman would trust him, and so the reactionary story works best...and honestly that is pretty fair. 

The Synder Cut to me, will hopefully show a bigger and bolder image and movie...something that has some vision behind the spectacle, now that vision might be a bad vision, but at least it will be there.

I think Nintendo would be smart to ride out the generation.  They came from a loss with the Wii U and they have a big success.  Because it is viewed as a portable system people aren't looking at graphical parity.  Nintendo needs to ride this train.  Then launch a year or 2 into the PS5 and new Xbox console generation.  Nintendo can safely position itself as the alternative system.

As for what the Switch should be.  When the Wii was released and talk about a Wii 2 was around.  I believed Nintendo should have made a "Super Wii" basically perfect the system and the features and just make the best Wii system they could.  Nintendo didn't do that and I think they suffered for it. 

The Switch 2 needs to be the best damned Switch console they can make...keep the core principle, but make it a better system.  To the regards, I would make a more module Switch.  Right now the controllers have some cool features in them, but many of them are not needed.  Enhance the controllers by making them bigger and better quality and release with the idea of module controllers from off the bat.

Of course 100% backwards compatibility should be had.  From this generation on people should expect that if they buy a game it will move with them to their next console, this should be come place, so that updating your console is like updating your computer.  You will be able to play your games on Steam on your new computer...consoles should be the same.

Well if Batwoman isn't moving forward, you can always you know...move to tell a story about Barbara Gordon as Batgirl and people would be happier.  Batwoman looked awful. 

You know I know it won't happen, but I hope they are able to use almost everything filmed and tell a long form movie making it 4 hours would be great...but honestly, they could easily back door this into a series to finish the Synderverse.  The regular episodes would not have as much as a budget, but if they could get the stars to commit and just tell all of the Synder DC Cinematic run in 1 season of television it might be a reason to subscribe to HBO Max.

Phil & Mop It Up have you made your own Super Mario Games with the Map feature?  I want to find some good content and most is either too hard, or too easy...or just doesn't feel like Mario.

You know if this is successful, and like the Snyder Cut is actually popular and gets good reviews.  I wouldn't mind the Synder-verse continuing separate from the other series.  If not to just get a fully Snyder Justice League Trilogy going.  I mean whether you liked his vision or not the man obviously had a vision which is more than that new Star Wars Trilogy has, and probably more than the DC movies have now.

TalkBack / Re: WHAT THE GOLF? (Switch) Review
« on: May 20, 2020, 07:05:24 AM »
I played this on apple arcade and I must say much of it was enjoyable but some of the later levels were just annoying. They were gimmicky in a not fun way. The game is a great satire though and several levels were golf spoofs of some great games. It is a game that probably can never have a good sequel but not every game needs one.

A Treky friend of mine Swears that the Animated Star Trek may be the best TOS Trek there is.  It is lean and cuts the stories down to essentials, and I think it is voiced by the original cast.

What Link to the Past gets right is almost everything. But the map is really the perfect size with The right amount of shortcuts. You rarely feel burdened. And those side quested mentioned feels more like just discoveries.

The point is Star Trek has always been an adventure show. So there is always a threat or a mystery and danger. The point isn’t the fighting. The point is the overall world is a hopeful positive future where mankind has surpassed many of the more trivial problems for survival and peace. Now we only have these real specific threats and problems.  But the overall quality of life is pretty stable in the Federation.

Wait you can download the Japanese SNES and NES apps from the US store?

Thanks for the information.  Yeah, that sounds boring and uninteresting.  I was taking a guess because I didn't know much of the lore around that.  Basically it sounds like Star Trek's version of the Clone Wars...it can be left with no explanation and be fine as a historical event. 

Well, I think TOS always had guns because of the potential of hostility on planets and they are still an army.  I think Next Generation did a better job since Phasers didn't look like guns (Then again they might in that universe) So when carrying them it didn't seem like they had weapons.  If my memory serves there were many away team parties that never carried weapons with them, and that really fits in with Star Trek.

I think the obvious answer is Eugenics is such an evil and disgusting thing, nobody wants to touch it.  It is probably why the Wars were called that to begin with...lets add the two worst things we can think of together...Eugenics and War.  Is there any clues on what the wars were supposed to be about?  I mean the only things I can think of...is a war to either A) Purify the universe with a supreme alien species be it Romulan or Human or another alien species...heck it would be really surprising if if it was Vulcan...a single supreme alien species is only logical.  I agree, Trek should never go backwards, as interesting as characters like Pike could be...you can't put any of them at risk when you know how they die in the original timeline.  It just isn't exciting...its like watching Obi-won duel in Episode 1...you know he can't die. 

I do think a short series telling how about a War and then how the Federation was able to smooth out the ridges and make a functioning optimistic universe that is the Star Trek Universe would be interesting.  Almost as interesting as a series set in the future where that hopeful federation was destroyed and people are trying to rebuild back to that ideal but the world and trust is too fundamentally broken to go back there. 

I love the Trek Universe, but to me it died after Deep Space Nine.

Tetris Attack is easily my favorite puzzle game so this makes me happy.

I just cancelled my Disney Plus account.  I wasn't getting much use out of it.  I guess I will go back to using it when the Marvel shows come out, or maybe I will wait until closer to one of the movies is coming out then I can stream all the shows and then watch the movie.  seems easy enough.

I mean Disney needs to get the player running smoothly and start adding countries to the list that can show its material.  I also think Disney+ will need to evolve and be willing to add more things for adults.  But that is another thing entirely.

Oh, I understand it.  I just hate it.  I wonder about classics that I love how much better they could have been if the original vision wasn't compromised.  But you know that is just life. 

20
Was?  I hate when companies change story beats and plans because of the real world.  Like Lilo and Stitch is infinitely a worse product because suits got their hands on it.  And edited the original vision.  Then the sequel to the TMNT was written and directed to make all the fights more cartoony so children wouldn't imitate the violence.  And that 2nd movie SUCKS!!!  Just release the original vision.  We can handle a little does of reality in our fiction.

Boba Felt looked cool.  Had a cool job, and he also fought the first Jedi we ever fell in love with, and captured Han Solo.  Yes, he didn't do much, but he was cool...and that is all that matters.  The problem is, rarely do characters ever live up to our own built up hype for them.

The Trailer could just be edited bad.  But it literally looks like it is a military space operations version of The Office.  They are going to have to nail the characters, because this won't have that instant relatability an office comedy would have.

I think you still have to wade through the crap and the good stuff.  I found a fun little game that was really simple but pleasant, the creator obviously took some time to create a lot of impressive gimmicks but overall it was just an easy like children's Mario game. 

I think finding good theme games and adequate level and difficulty will be hard.  But it is worth the effort.

I have to go the Mario Kart 64.  The game has aged poorly when you put it up against the more modern Mario Karts, but that is what is supposed to happen.  Mario Kart's formula is defined and in some ways perfected in Mario Kart 64.  Mario Kart 64 has my personal favorite version of the Blue Turtle Shell, and I think a better less chaotic weapon system.  It is equally about combat and racing, which I think is lost in some of the more modern Mario Karts.
