3DS

A few days ago I published an article where I criticized the Gateway3DS team for having intentionally injected malware in their flashcart for the Nintendo 3DS. One of the thing that annoyed me is how most of the people buying the Gateway 3DS products almost described the Gateway team as “white knights” or “devs dedicated to the scene”. Set aside the flamewar-inducing tone of my article, I mostly wanted to open people’s eyes on the huge market and margin that the flashcart business is. As I mentioned, the Gateway team are looking at a potential benefit of millions of dollars, they are clearly in the business for money and not to “help the scene”. Good for them, but I just wanted to stop the myth that these guys are here for “the community”.

Now, when I mentioned millions of dollars, some people rolled eyes and said I basically pulled the numbers out of thin air. I’ve gone back to my research and came back with more precise numbers to prove my claims.

If you own a 3DS you might have heard of the “Gateway 3DS” card. It is basically a flashcart for the Nintendo 3DS that will let people run roms (read: pirated 3DS games).

While I was reading IGN this morning I read a very interesting article on cross-play. Personally, I think cross-play between different consoles could be a major feature for future gaming but it seems other companies have other ideas to make this happen much earlier.

The console wars, a title that originally appeared in the early 90′s due to Nintendo and Sega releasing comparable consoles. previous generations had competition, but when the Clinton era hit, all bets were off! I remember having a Super Nintendo and thinking it couldn’t get much better, my friend Chad however, had a Sega genesis. We fought like cats and dogs over which was the superior console and would never relent. I remember that now mainly because I see a larger version of our fights everywhere I look on the internet.

physics formula

Physics!  Uhn!  What is it good for?  Absolutely . . . er, quite a lot, actually.

Physics in games is one of those strange things that you don’t notice until it stops working right.  Example: in older games, where physics processing was not a big deal, no matter how an enemy was shot, he fell with the same pre-canned animation.  This is actually more realistic than modern games; people do not fly backwards when shot like in the movies.  But the point is, the animation was not dynamic, resulting in a death animation that did not look right.

I am a HUGE JRPG fan, I love a lot of those niche series that a lot of other Americans do not seem to enjoy. The (US) gaming industy seems to be ignoring a lot of quality titles lately.  Does it have to do with stereotypes? laziness? Money? Let’s see if we can’t draw some more insight.
