You'd think Nintendo would be worried about their files being illegally copied by pirates and made available to any android platform.  How do they think they could prevent that from happening?  It's a strange move for a company that guards it's IP so well and has never before allowed their games to be released on non-Nintendo hardware.

If you read the story the games are also going to be optimised for Shield.

You could have HD wii games while the rest of us wait around for official re-releases on switch.

EDIT: Eurogamer says that the games will be 1080p? But don't really cite where or when that was said.

SupremeAC said:

EG has a good piece on the technology side of the game.  Seems like they really upped the special effects, but to the detriment of the handheld mode.  Tehy've reported resolutions lower than 360p.  That's near 3DS like territory.

Yeah in portable mode it looks like shit. The resolution is so bad it's the equivalent of one of those old tvs with a an antennea you wiggle about endlessly trying to get a decent picture. On tv it looks good, but I wonder why they didn't just do XCX like visuals at 900p or something like that. It would have been more polished. The picture can look a little soft at times.

British is the world's sexiest accent for men to have, reveals survey:

The British accent has been named the sexiest in the world.


Well, the sexiest for men. According to American women. Is it any wonder Meghan Markle fell for Prince Harry?


According to a survey carried about by MissTravel.com, American women find British and Scottish accents sexiest.


20 per cent of the 1,423 women surveyed said they found a British accent sexiest, followed by 18 per cent who prefer the Scottish lilt.


However we’ve contacted MissTravel to clarify what this means, because obviously Scotland is part of Great Britain.


And there’s also the fact that there’s a huge and diverse range of British accents, from West Country and Welsh to Scouse and Glaswegian.


Unfortunately for British women, however, they didn’t rank so highly in the eyes of American men.


According to the study of 1,164 American men, Israeli accents are most likely to set pulses racing (19 per cent), followed by Colombian (18 per cent).



Sexiest Accents for Men

  1. British
  2. Scottish
  3. Spanish
  4. Australian
  5. Southern
Sexiest Accents for Women

  1. Israeli
  2. Colombian
  3. Australian
  4. French
  5. Southern

Brandon Wade, CEO and founder of MissTravel.com, said: “Accents have a tendency of taking our minds to unknown and exotic places, adding a touch of mystery and intrigue to the speaker.


“As Americans we often associate British accents with intelligence and class, both desirable qualities for a mate.


“While Israeli accents conjure up images of the Mediterranean.”


So perhaps Colin’s storyline in Love Actually - the unlucky in love British man who goes to the US and is suddenly considered a sex god - isn’t so far-fetched after all.

So the new thing that is annoying me is hearing 4KTV owners repeatedly bitching that any lower resolution game looks like crap on their 4KTVs. We all had this when HDTVs first became a thing and made SD content look bad. Anyone who invested in 4K should have seen this coming a mile away, and crapping on games because they don't meet their 4K standards is moronic. You made a bad purchase and should have waited a few more years.

My tv does 4K without HDR. But I haven't noticed any bad picture at all from lower resolutions. Not like my old 1080i plasma in 2006 that made older stuff look horrible.

So has no one here bought XC2, save for GG? Weren't you all very big fans of the original Xenoblade Chronicles back in the day?  I guess it's on my to buy list.  I'll probably get me one new game to play over the Christmas holiday, and it'll be either this or DOOM.

I only just played the first Xenoblade about a year ago when it was added to the VC. And I only got a few hours in. I could not figure out how to get some timing based move to work that was required for a boss battle, so I just quit. The music was very nice though.

That's a shame because it's a really great game.

Assuming they ever let switch owners transfer over there old VC Library I am sure I will get back to it one of these days. Of course I will still need a switch in order to make that happen. Don't think I will ever buy a Wii U again.

Well of course, I thought that that was just to have been assumed. Sheesh.

I had a sizable Digital Library on the Wii U. Between the Virtual Console, Indies, and Retail games I probably had 50 or so games on it. Even more if you count the old WiiWare and Wii VC games. Once Nintendo announced the account system would carry over from the Wii U to the switch I figured I could just download everything again later. Now I'm not so sure that's going to happen, and I've considered rebuying the stupid system just to have access to my full library of games.
