@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

http://www.siliconer...artphone-games/

 

 

Mobile phone games maker DeNA and Nintendo have entered a “business and capital alliance for the joint development and operation of gaming applications for smart devices” the two companies announced today.

 

The two companies believe they can create new business opportunities by combining their strengths, and will jointly operate new game applications developed specifically for smart devices. These applications will feature Nintendo IP.

 

In addition to developing and operating smartphone games together, DeNA and Nintendo will also develop a new “core system,” which they say will be compatible with a variety of smartphones and tablets, as well as Nintendo’s own dedicated videogame platforms. A new membership service utilizing this system will launch in Fall 2015.

 

As part of their new partnership, DeNA is to allocate 15,081,000 of its treasury shares (corresponding to 10.0% of its issued shares, having a total value of about 22 billion yen) to Nintendo by means of a third-party allocation, and Nintendo is to acquire such shares in DeNa. At the same time, Nintendo is to allocate 1,759,400 of its treasury shares (corresponding to 1.24% of its issues shares, having a total value of about 22 billion yen) to DeNA, and DeNA is to acquire such shares in Nintendo.

 

Nintendo says this new alliance is not expected to have any effect on its business performance for the remainder of the fiscal year, which ends March 31st, 2015. “The expected impact upon future business performance is to be reflected in the forecasts of financial results for the next fiscal year onwards,” the company said in a statement.

 

http://www.siliconer...m-codenamed-nx/

 

 

Nintendo may be teaming up with DeNA to create games for smartphones, but that doesn’t mean they intend to stop creating games for dedicated videogame platforms. In fact, their next dedicated videogame hardware is codenamed “NX,” company president Satoru Iwata revealed at a press event today.

 

Iwata said it is currently too early to reveal details on NX, but that more details on this device will be shared next year. He did not provide any further details regarding what shape the device would take, but has said in the past that Nintendo’s next home console and handheld will both share a similar architecture and operating system.

 

During the joint press conference with DeNA, Iwata clarified that Nintendo will not port videogames created for dedicated consoles to smart devices. He went on to say that Nintendo intends to use smartphone games to draw consumers to their dedicated videogame platforms, and that the company maintains its passion for dedicated game devices and game experiences that offer good value to customers.

 

Update: During a Q&A session, Iwata was asked why the company chose to announce its next dedicated videogame console during a press conference about their partnership with DeNA. He replied that Nintendo chose to make the NX announcement so people would understand that Nintendo are not exiting the dedicated videogame business, and that the company “will be progressing with dedicated videogame devices with passion”.

 

 

My first reaction was that this is too early but actually the Wii U's been around for a while.

 

The console generations are kind of messed up now, though.

 

On the other hand, mobile Nintendo titles! Money money money!

I am really interested to see what Nintendo does on mobile, they've always been so good at developing with their platform's strengths and needs in mind and it'll be interesting to see how they tackle this environment. New hardware seems like a smart move, the Wii U has great games and all but it's had a few years and hasn't got the staying power for many more.

...Am I too optimistic to think this "new membership service" might lead to Nintendo actually having a proper account system for their digital stores? Them not having one certainly hasn't stopped me buying tons of games digitally, but it'd be nice.

Well, of course Nintendo is making something new, just like Sony and Microsoft already are working on their next thing. :)

 

Honestly I would not expect anything before late 2016 or even 2017 though, at the earliest. By then the Wii U has been out for 4 - 5 years, so its probably time.

 

As for the system itself, going by the info we have so far, I sense that cloud gaming is a huge part of this. Maybe streaming games to the different platforms, workload being 50 - 100% handled by dedicated rigs hosted by Nintendo?

DeNA?  The company that makes these crappy "pay to win" games for my phone?  This makes me...concerned.  "Free" app mobile gaming is the worst thing to happen to games since EA.

From what I've been hearing from GDC, the NX should be what I've been predicting. It will be a home console that you can plug you mobile device into to extend your mobile games to your television. The basic idea is that you can buy the next Zelda game (for example) play it on your home console. Unplug the mobile portion and take the game with you or at least take a portion of the game with you. Very similar but more advanced (obviously) than the Dreamcast memory card game things.

 

It's the next logical step for our industry.

I'm not sure I understand this much... but it does offer an interesting option.

 

For example.. my mom loves puzzle games. Now imagine a Wii u RTS *hey.. wouldn't be that hard with the gamepad honestly* where she could play the puzzle game on her own, plug it into the game, and I get resources.

 

Or a Zelda game where you need to decode maps. *kinda like windwaker* You could either pay rupees to do it, or do it yourself in your free time on your phone.

 

Or.... possibly the best idea ever. Streetpass. -EVERYONE- has phones. People don't want to carry around their 3DS's, send the street pass data to their phone!

I wouldn't want to see a freemium model for things like Zelda puzzles, or anything...but I could definitely see some of that mobile swappability.  Play on your home console, then pick it up on your phone during your commute - almost like the WiiU tablet, but on a mobile network instead of just being in the same room.

 

Or if you play games on the phone, bring them home and pick up on the TV.  Or have the same games on the phone, but have a universal controller that works with all of them instead of the stupid and confusing and glitchy and inaccurate and accursed on-screen soft keys for mobile versions of "real" games.

 

Basically, Nintendo could take control of the mobile game market with some very smart integrations, partnerships (which they're apparently on top of!) and innovations.


ALERT: Everything is fine.

Everything I'm reading says that the mobile marketed games will be completely separate from what theyre doing on the main hardware.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I can see the NX being a joint successor to the Wii U and 3DS, a unified handheld and TV-based console while being more of the latter, while mobile development replaces Nintendo's dedicated handhelds. I wouldn't count on it having any sort of backwards compatibility, unfortunately.

That's referring to their network and Club Nintendo infrastructure. They're pretty adamant that a mobile device's games and a console's games should be treated differently.

From what I'm currently reading, these games are a bit different. They're small mobile games meant to advertise Nintendo's ips and hardware. What I'm hearing from GDC is that the next consoles from Nintendo will be able to connect together in a fashion like I explained above.

So basically major title on the system, mobile companion title on the phone with additional functionality unlocked on both by owning/linking the hardware and your mobile device?

 

I also realize that if Nintendo releases mobile games that takes advantage of Amiibo support they will likely be literally printing money. Amiibos are already ridiculously successful with their own customer base, expanding that to a wider audience that won't even require them to first buy Nintendo Hardware and are used to the concept with Skylanders/Infinity?
