Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Nintendo] Finished Zelda? Why don't you play...hang on, gimme a second...

    Miyamoto talks about the perception that he's against story in games here, which he feels has been "misconstrued"
    When you're playing a game, the story is there to give the big world you're in some substance and meat. And because you're the protagonist in the game, that's what you should be doing. I think, also, when a story is set too strictly already, you can only follow a certain path. There's also times where it takes so much time to set up the story, that you just want to get into the gameplay but you can't because there's so much set-up.

    When he says story is "unnecessary," he means, literally, it is not required for a game to have a story to succeed, or even to succeed at storytelling

    I only ever played OB64 once, when I was like 7.

    I assume the game is not quite as malevolently obtuse as I remember it, but the thing might as well have still been in Japanese for all tiny me could make sense of it.

    yeah, I had to come back to it in college to really appreciate it

    course as a kid the very notion that my units were autobattling (absurd! what gives them the right) was distressing to me

    As an adult this notion still distresses me.

    I don't care about headphones but

    This is the first time I've thought about the speakers on this thing

    Vita speakers sounded pretty good, and 3DS sound was mostly acceptable? I'm sure they've got it right now

    3DS's speakers were a little weak, imo. The quality was fine but if my furnace/AC kicks on I have trouble hearing the music and effects clearly.

    Yeah ideally they worked with HTC on the audio. My M8's speakers are hands-down the best cellphone speakers I've ever used.

    Some people just prefer it that way but it is also useful for more precise tasks like drawing or taking notes by hand

    I really don't like getting my greasy fingers on nice displays if I can avoid it. Tapping is okay but dragging/swiping really makes me cringe.

    I mean I have fingers the size of small trucks and prefer a stylus for precise taps

    The buttons on the screen in that video look pretty reasonably sized though

    Mario Maker was useful to have a stylus when you needed to precisely place objects quickly.

    Yeah, stylus is just my preferred method of interacting with menus and such. It's nice that they're giving people the option between touch and button though.

    because they're not including a stylus there isn't a stylus holder on it so it's significantly more inconvenient to quickly take out and put away a stylus even if they're cheap and easy to get

    Especially because they had the Appleian gall to try and spin it as a "customer friendly" decision. "Oh people have too many chargers lying around because of how often we do SKU refreshes so we're sparing them the clutter of having another one!"

    I guess they might have been thinking that if you were upgrading, you probably had an ac adapter already, but like, what if you want to trade your old one in, and also who gives a shit put an ac adapter in there holy fuck
