Forget that pink thing. THIS WILL BE MY 3DS.

Assuming it comes out in NA and not just EU. And if it doesn't, NINTENDO WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU.

Media! )

There's gonna be a couple of developer roundtables supposedly tonight and tomorrow night, so expect perhaps a bit more news ramble then.
nendil: (kamineko)
Dun care about Microsoft, dun care about Sony. Let's go Nintendo! )

There will surely be more info on the Wiiu and Skyward Sword to come in later interviews/roundtables whatnot. For now I'll just drop this here with links to trailers coming ASAP.

The Sony conference was mostly completely uninteresting. Instead of attempting to snark on it, here come more Nintendo goodies. )

(I know some of you already have these courtesy of other sites but at least I sat on for like 5 hours for you I'm doing it out of tradition. :P)

Kirby this fall, Epic Mickey and Donkey Kong Country this holiday season, plus 3DS might be out then too... I'm starting to thank Nintendo for delaying Zelda because MY WALLET and spare time HERTZ.
nendil: (kamineko)
Got my Youtube stream, got my cup of tea, got Notepad open for snarking/rambling/SQUEEING. LET'S DO THIS THING.

Nintendo connnnnnference )

Holy cow, Nintendo completely blew it out of the water this year, even with me expecting great things just from Zelda and 3DS alone. :D~~~~~ I can't wait to link you guys to the trailers for all these games; this post will be updated when they're up. Trailers up! Most of them are from the conference footage, I'll covertly swap them with direct-feed videos as they come in. Nintendo was nice enough to provide convenient links to everything!

E3 next week. And it's a Zelda year. PREPARE YOUR BOMB SHELTERS.

In other news, I've been pining after the Chinese Tarot by Jui Guoliang for a long time - not as a deck I want to read with but because the correlations with Chinese cultural elements look to be neat and decently-done (if not necessarily accurate). But it's out of print and usually lists for anywhere from $100 to $1000. I happened to look at my Amazon wishlist on Sunday and there it was - a "Good" condition listing for $32.98! And it's already shipped out too :D I definitely plan to post a thorough review of its Chinesey-ness once I get it.

If all else fails I can always re-sell it for more than I paid. XP

I spent a lot of time painting on the couch while Kevin played FFXIII, and I just want to say:

I never want to hear Fang say "EAT THIS" again.

(But I will, because he'll be at it for a while yet.)
nendil: (boing)
HAHAHA I randomly caught Pokerus AGAIN. That makes for the third time, between original Gold version, Leaf Green (which is still preserved across several games), now Heart Gold. And I haven't even gotten the 8th badge yet. And I don't even plan to do much hardcore breeding/training in this game. XP

Edit: Oh yeah, I think I caught it again naturally in Diamond too, but I had already transferred over some infected dudes from Leaf Green so I wasn't paying attention. How rare was this thing supposed to be again? XP
nendil: (boing)
Pokemon Heart Gold is coming in the mail! I was totally not going to buy it, but then I came up with a themed team that I just have to play through the game with. And isn't that always the way it is with me and Pokemon. )

Can't wait for all the further wacky teams I'll be able to make come Gen-5 later this year. :P

Goddamn it Nintendo. I wanted a black Wii from the start. And now I'll never get one because Nintendo hardware will outlast nuclear apocalypses.

(I was kinda busy at work, and didn't have time to clean this up to post until now. Not that it matters to 99% of yous.)

Someday I am going to own a computer that can do this.
nendil: (boing)
Work's been pretty easy-going lately, which means that I've had time to revisit my own projects (personal laptop at work = best thing evar). Namely, I finally have the time I never could spare to compile all the notes I needed for the HP tarot. This nourished some thoughts into old obsessions, so, useless braindump time! )

I hope to be posting some thumbnail/concept sketches before too long. Would be nice to get some discussion on those, but that might be too much to hope for. XP

Holy crap. After my last ramble about a crappy game game crappily featuring Batman, here's a Batman game that already looks amazing: Arkham Asylum.

I'll let the article do the talking, but just look at these screens. Especially the first two had me from the word go. I'd say what I like the best so far is that none of the character models (so far) look lazy, even the NPC guards and the cannon fodder juggalos clown thugs. Usually the decreasing importance of a game character means their face looks increasingly inhuman (and not in a monster/creature way). Or maybe I've just seen too many Activision games.

(I've been on a bit of a Batman kick because have been working through all the seasons of The Animated Series which is the best cartoon ever. Ever. Try and prove me wrong. Animaniacs excepted)

Edit: Holy $^@&, Killer Croc. Looks awesome, although... that might be a bit far out there, isn't he supposed to be a dude?

You probably haven't heard of the Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe game. That's a silly idea, but hey, I like DC superheroes, I have nostalgia for Mortal Kombat, and they've got some decent ideas like making the gameplay cinematic at times. It's too bad the concept is so shoddily done in a number of ways including animation, character design, and more!

So I went to their official website to check out the high-res concept art/renders and holy crap, I'm lollin' here. Watch me nitpick the hell out of CG and other nerdery: )

The moral of the story: It's fine for you to take shortcuts on your CG; everybody does it all the time. But if you're going to release full-resolution images, then they better not show the flaws!

P.S. And while we're on the subject, you should check out these compilations of American cartoons based on popular fighting games, which I didn't even know existed. I'm sure that's for the better because at that age I would have gladly watched them. At first.

Very uneventful E3 conferences. You guys can just ignore everything (in parentheses). Seriously there's not much worth looking at here.

Wow, and I thought Nintendo was unexciting last year )

Eck. You can tell how uneventful Nintendo's conference was by the fact that half of my comments are me snarking on the presenters.

Fortunately Sony saves the day )

So Nintendo just announced an advanced motion sensing geegaw that can calculate (better) one-to-one Wiimote motion. You know what that means? SWORD FIGHTING

please for Zelda please for Zelda please for Zelda

Nintendo conference is tomorrow morning guys. BRACE FOR IMPACT

+.12 or something BMI, because I had Burger King right beforehand. (We had to use those scratch-off stickers offering us free shakes!) But somehow during the workout I lost .02 BMI which was enough to make the game freak out about my weight having changed a little.

Unlocked the advanced aerobic stepping today, and it's tough ^^;; At least, when you have to go sideways and rapidly switch orientation. I'm sure I'll get used to it tomorrow though since it's always the same routine (I think).

We also got Rock Band and I spent way too much time on that, considering I have homework for tomorrow. Which is why I'm up writing this now.

P.S. This guy is awesome, he makes "realistic" paintings out of children's art.
