  1. Having just put a couple of hours into Cruisin Blast I have to say it has left me with a big grin on my face. If you like arcade racers then this is really bloody good. Totally over the top and it will look amazing on the OLED screen due to colours.
  2. Or put a peice of paper behind the joystick inside the joycon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zG4JQ6BPmFU
  3. The N64 stick was spring based with plastic gearing so that's why it has the feel it does. Modern sticks are differant. The spring loading had a big benefit in that thanks to resistence is felt like you could hold the stick at certain angles and stay there. F-zero in particular was good for this as it allowed you to take corners at speed and feel like if you pushed the stick anymore then the ship would lose traction and spin.
  4. It's not actually the more modern stick causing problems. N64 emulation on the WiiU was actually terrible. The brightness was screwed. Controls were poorly calibrated. It was a massive shit show compared to the Wii virtual console. F-zero felt fine on that.
  5. You should have because the wiiu version has fucked controls.
  6. Also do not have riva tuner running in the background. It causes the game to crash.
  7. Get ready to get very, very lost with the next two films.
  8. Wll that's Vily and PGL for you. Always have been and always will be shit heads. And then there is Manny... Test is a dumpster fire and you are better off being a million miles away from them.
  9. This was TEST coms atfer it was announced when they would leave and had lost What you have here is people who realised what had happened and people who refused to believe it.
  10. If people do start smacking then they are told not to do so. The get a verbal smack from Dark Shines and other FC's.
  11. Out of all the enemy town halls broadcast last night about retreating the only person who came out of it with any shread of credability was Braves leader Dunk Dinkle. He has always been a pretty good guy and is generally well liked amougst imperium members. Shattered Armor on the other hand is a moron. He's the main reason why Brave are in a position where they now have a target on their back. As for the T3 tengus Brave were buying they were way overpriced and also a totally terrible fit. They were appauling. Dark Shines (our FC) was laughing at the fit when we first saw it. Even I was. Someone in Horde made a fortune out of Brave pilots. We knew this was happening for about four or five days. Test FC's as well as some other groups were jumping out and fireselling their Titans. We even said so on the metashow and our discords. The surprise for us was the sudden unanchouring of keepstars. That we did not expect. But we think we know what is going to happen to them. They will use them to try and make their own 1DQ. The attempt at 1DQ that you lot made yesterday...that seems like it was cover for groups to start evacing shit and unanchouring structures. As for TEST. They are a dead allaince walking. Their coms last night was rage induced hilarity. Brave though? They will be fine. They'll get a kicking somewhere down the line but they will be fine. While some of line members smack in local we don't bare a grudge against them and pretty much everyone likes Dunk because he's a good chap and doesn't screw over his line members. The real winner throughout this entire thing? Frat. Frat did pretty much fuck all and just stayed up North botting and building.
  12. And now TEST are announcing a full retreat from the space they captured. Oh and the TTT thing I mentioned above...yeah they were relying on it for isk and have blamed that change for losing. Frankly they were losing before that.
  13. And it has just been announced that the first bit of the blue donut has decided to throw their hands up in the air and say "Fuck this!". NC. has just announced they have left the war. EDIT: Pandemic Horde have just pinged that they are leaving as well. This war is over and we have won!
  14. And then shit went down... Never let it be said that my timing is good. It isn't. I posted the above and then a few hours later the enemy sends a few thousand ships our way. About six o'clock a series of discord pings went out from Papi that aksed for everyone to log in. They did just that but then again so did we. They started pouring ships into 1DQ, some nice expensive ships as well (ships that shoudln't be as expensive as their members paid for them but their leaders decided to rip off their line members). Then they ran into the wood chipper of the 1DQ gate and things became very bad for them. The Goons were after blood and so dropped dreads on the gate. These, combined with about 6 billion fighters made sure that the wood chipper went burr and they started to die. Although Papi did manage to kill about 11 goon dreads but the loses for them numbered in the hundreds. Meanwhile my lot of lovely people started doing what we do best, messing around with the enemy. In a smart move we took out a fleet and used it as a way to hault the enemy trying to reinforce their fleets jumping in 1DQ. This was successful and currently their fleets are no longer reinforcing their dying fleet in 1DQ and chasing our fleet in the hope that they can at least kill some of us. As all this has been going on we have see multiple enemy Keepstar citadels unanchouring in Delve and Fountain. They are pulling up sticks and preparing to evacuate and not lose their their citadels against the coming rampage of Goons. Currently the battle report looks horribly one sided in ships lost. 250 dead for us, 1200 fead for them. We are also winning the isk war by around 50 billion isk. This war might just have been won.
  15. Tut, Tut, Tut If you play eve and you want to tarde or buy something then there are two places to go. One is the system Jita and station 4-4. It is controlled by NPC's and is a very busy place. It's pretty much eve's default trading post. The other is something that was created a few year ago. Next door to Jita there is a Citadel Keepstar that people use to trade things and it gives people much better tax and brokers fees so it's more profitable for people and makes its owners a nice chunk of money. In particular it was used to trade plex, eve's equivilant of paying real life moeny for in game currency. The owners of the Keep, which is known as TTT (hence the title above), is made up for three main partys. One of them is TEST, the other is Pandemic Horde and the third is Goons. All through the war, despite TEST and friends doing their best to kill goons, the partnership has remained and nobody has screwed each other over in splitting the profits. There have been plenty of rumours about someone trying to kill the keep and so on but nobody wanted to give up a nice stream of money to help fund their war. Then CCP did something. That something being lowering the tax rate in Jita, and indeed all NPC space, to nearly zero. Suddenly the advantage of using the TTT Keep was taken away and a massive exodus began of people shifting buy and sell orders next door to Jita. This means that TTT has gone from being very profitable to being much less so and this might have had a big impact on the supposed next stage of the war. You're going the wrong way! As you might have read above our enemies were planning an all out assault final ditch hail mary go at removing goons from their last section of space. We already knew that TEST and friends were low on money but we weren't entirely sure just how much they rellied on TTT for their ship replacement fund. It turns out it was quite a bit. Well...a hell of a lot apparently. The expected attemtps to break into our space have been half hearted to say the least with TEST and Pandemic horde using cheap T1 cruisers to fight against our swarms of Capital fighters. This doesn't work. They jump in, find themselves trapped and then swamed with fighters that kill them quickly. They are losing hundreds and hundreds of ships while we may only lose a few dozen. It's not a good way to maintain moral, unless your goons and my allaince in which case ours is sky high. While this is going on something else is happening. Our Spies and alts have been spotting capital ships leaving the front lines and heading away from Delve. These caps belong to some of the high up members of Pandemic horde and TEST. Their leaders are leaving to secure their shiny stuff and not risk them. Then we have noticed the sudden sale of Titans in the enemy staging system. Their leaders are opening try to sell off some of their ships. These are not the actions of leaders who previously said they would use everything they have in their attack on Goons. They are doing a Sir Robin while their memebers are left wonder what is going on. The current feeling is that TEST and friends are going to leave the frontlines and go back to an area where they can defend a counter attack from goons. They know that a good defensive area is very hard to break down. They also need to give their members an area to safely rat and raise money. Indeed the sale of titans could be to fund SRP and maybe keepstars for a defensive area. The trouble is if they do sound the horn of retreat then the angry hive of Goon bees will be very ready to murder TEST (the mantra is that "Test are next"). Their leadership will also have been humiliated. The changes to the tax rate could not have come at a worse time for a group whose moral is low as their bank balance.
  16. Containment Procedure. Yep it has certainly been a while since I updated this thread with more exciting news from the universe of New Eden and there is a very good reason for that...nothing much has happened in the war. Well, I say nothing has happened but that's not entirely accurate because things have happened it's just nothing on real consequence to the overall war. There was a brief moment of excitement when one of the main Papi alliances, NCdot, had a bit of a moment where nearly their entire us timezone FC's decided to leave for pastures new as NCdot was so boring. The two corporations wanted to leave and join another alliance so they could have some fun. The leader of NCdot, Vince Draken, really did not take kindly to this and decided that members of those corps are to be shot on sight along with the alliance they joined...one that was one their side fighting the goons. Because of this Vince was called all the names under the sun by my lot and some of his allies. Still did not break the "harmony" of the big blue donut though. But that should tell you something about the last few months of this war. It's been damn boring. Papi scream and shout that they have goons contained and they will keep them like that. Actually that last part should be written in the past tense because this whole great idea of containment of the goons has now been throw to the wall and there are some very interesting reasons for that. Do something! While containing goons seemed all well and good it has had a big effect on not those who are contained but rather those who are trying to contain them. You see Goons and my group are old hands at eve and we have been through the hard times and the good. We have stuck by Eve and we just keep on login in and playing the game. Or rivals though...well let's just say they are not made of sterner stuff. After whleping fleets against the walls on goon space the number of people in their fleets began to drop, slowly at first but over the last month or so it has dropped like a rock. Before they could outnumber us four to one. Now we can outnumber them. But why have the numbers dropped? Well it's a combination of things. 1. Promising the scored earth. Papi started this war by telling their members they wanted nothing more than the removal of goons from this game and that they were going to destory every goon citadel and every goon titan and so on. They wanted a war of extermination. Now these pleased a whole lot of people because they all hated the goons, some for things goons had done in the past, others because of things they had heared of the goons doing and any other reason you can possibly think off. However after they ran into the defensive wall the goons have thrown up and their leadership became very reluctant to have a set of balls and try and break through it, a lot of people just became infuriated and spotted playing. 2. Scarcity. There really is nothing like a developer causing an economic crash in a game to stop people wanting to play it and yet this is exactly what CCP did as the war started. The hit things and nerfed things so that it became very difficult for people to make money in null sec space. Because people couldn't make money they couldn't buy ships (expecially capitals) they did not feel like login in. Oh and if you were a miner then things were even worse and you couldn't mine that well. This, on top of the changes to contruction requirements for ships, made things far more expensive and also made it more difficult of industrialists to make a profit. Less money in the game meant less incentive for people to risk ships. 3. Realisation. There's nothing more annoying when your sworn enemy is not only able to resist your attacks but actually benefits from them immensly. You see the above point has hit alliances hard and especially those who were not well off to begin with. That happens to be a lot of the Papi alliances. Goons meanwhile are rolling in isk, and have whole sections of the alliance dedicated to make isk in as many ways as possible. While Scarcity hurt them the goons have been able to adapt. They are just really well structured. So they aren't going to run out of ships, or isk or pilots. In fact the more goons were "contained" the more their confidence has grown because they realise that Papis heart isn't in it anymore. Which bring us to the past week. Faced with discord in the ranks and pressure from somne of the alliances to try and halt the decline in numbers and get people playing again it was decided that containment was no longer a valid idea. They have decided to throw everything they have at the goons and us and see if they can make any progress and they have given themselves one month to make it happen...after they have had a week to move stuff back down to delve for the fight. They even hyped this announcement a week early. So we have now had two weeks to prepare even more for an attack that we were already very prepapred for. They could have tried to catch us by surprise but nope. Thanks to those lovely advanced notices the fires of the 1DQ industial factories have been stoked and are churning out a staggering amount of ships, weapons, moduels and ammunition, far more than the enemys systems next door is. Also, goons have been really, really looking forward to this. They have been begging for it for months. Their moral is sky high. They live for 14 hour fleets in crippling tidi. They really are a strange bunch.
  17. The next switch would do 4k when docked. This while docked would also do the same because it's just a PC and flexible in it's output resolution. In theory the original switch could have outputted in 4k as the Nvidia shield does that with the same chip.
  18. The replies are wonderful to see. Fuck Darren Grimes.
  19. One reason fot this is due to the quality that the games have been broadcast in. It has been criticised by fans all over the world as being poor quality with lots of glitches.
  20. I might get one simply because my eyesite is shite and a bigger screen is better for me. Also it looks really nice in white.
  21. One good thing is that despite the larger screen it does seem like power consumption is around the same as the V2 switch with Zelda running for 5.5 hourse on a full charge. This despite it still using the same battery and with more storage. That OLED screen must be quite efficient.
  22. That can be done with a firmware update. Why nintendo will not do it though is a mystery.
  23. I had one and in many ways it was the future. A beefy 3d and 2d card. It was like a half way house between the voodoo 1 and 2 powerwise but that was pretty useful for a lot of people. I remeber waiting for hours and hours to download the demo of Quake 3 arena and it running really well on that card.
