Goodbye Jade Raymond. And her breasts as well. Morale is going to be way down at Ubisoft Toronto. And by morale, I mean boners.

In with GG, how is this a real pic. It's something you see on porn sites to get you in the door.

LOL But seriously how do I know what mii you're looking at. I've posted my NNID a number of times and it's the same as all my other ID's. It's:

Archangel3371

I assumed you and GG were joking but I'm starting to wonder so no I don't have a girl mii and no I don't have pigtails.

We're not joking.

Turn on your Wii U and look in the top corner of either the gamepad screen or tv screen. You will see the mii icon that is associated with your account. If you have multiple family members or flatmates using your U, they may be logged on via their accounts. So younger sister, girlfriend or whatever. Otherwise I think you can change your mii.

I was just going to say this. LOL

When you send someone a friend request, you see their Mii in the corner just like you see avatars on Xbox. And I see a pigtailed nubile.

Yeah I know about my mii in the top corner and I know about seeing the mii of the person to whom you're sending a friend request to. Anyway GG you are thinking of someone else and Edge you must've mis-typed the name because my mii does not look like that.

I checked your profile on miiverse and its now a dude with red hair. Maybe it was a miiverse glitch?

You need to open the door.  

Isn't there some crank or something hidden in the fog somewhere?  Can't recall the details, but I think that was it.

I haven't seen anything like that, I've bashed down all the walls too. EDIT did it, there was a hidden tank.

Its probably just a personal picture from her Facebook account. Just because its on the internet it doesn't mean its representing her as a part or Ubisoft. And hell even if it is for Ubisoft why not? If every game company had a high ranking employee that looked like her I'm sure you'd see it. Remember those thong pics NOA used to have of Cammy?

True. Damn I need to check out her Facebook page.

It should be brown hair and white shirt.

I checked my mii's in my collection and there was a girl mii with pigtails, probably there from when they had that Rate Mii channel where you would create various themed mii's and submit them to be rated by other users. Still it shouldn't have been viewable like that since I always had my mii as the main one and it was always the one I saw. Anyway I deleted all the extra miis that were in there so there shouldn't be any more issues.

That section sucked ass. Time limit and a totally FUBAR camera. First negative part of the game for me, that and running across the top of the ship. There doesn't seem to be any hard and fast rule to what your Unite Guts will block and what it wont block.

And there are occasions where you are caught between two cannons on either side and one is inevitably out of range of the camera, so is shooting you offscreen. And you cant block or dodge because you can't see the attack cues.

Yes that's it.

You have to use the top screen to locate and destroy all the enemies. Here's a tip, hold the R button whilst moving the stick and it somewhat moves the camera in a "slightly" less asshole-ish way. Then prep up a Unite Hand punch and de-activate it, ready to whip out with A when near a cannon. One or two hits max will destroy each cannon.

There are also destroyable walls, you can see the cracks, just punch through.

Using the sword to chop back energy blasts.

The colour fake out was a bit cheap though, green tentacles indicate that you need to use the Gun but of course that doesn't work...

Nintendo Technology Development is looking for a lead graphics architect in the system-on-chip architecture group in Redmond, WA. The group is responsible for the architecture of Nintendo’s game console SoCs. The graphics architect plays a key role in determining the SoC architecture. The job responsibilities are:


Evaluate HW graphics (GPU) offerings from SoC solutions available in the market based on performance, power, and silicon area.

Evaluate the performance of the SoC solutions for both proprietary and standard graphics APIs.

Determine workloads and simulation models for both performance and power characteristics of GPUs.

Keep track of GPU architectural improvements in the industry and devise strategies to incorporate them for future Nintendo gaming platforms.

Act as the graphics architectural evangelist working with global Nintendo teams for future and on-going programs.

Work with external SoC vendors as the Nintendo focal point for graphics GPU architecture.

Should be prepared to work through architecture, design, validation, and bring-up stages of SoC design in cooperation with internal and external teams.


Summary of Requirements

The ideal candidate will have had experience working directly in a GPU architecture and design team with significant responsibilities.
Low power and SoC design experience would be a plus.

The candidate is expected to have good architectural insights and the ability to apply that for setting future graphics direction for Nintendo.

A bachelors degree (graduate degree preferred) in computer science/engineering or electrical engineering.

5+ years of lead or architectural role experience are required.

"Low power and SoC design experience would be a plus"


Here we go again. Energy efficient, small case etc.

^Not neccessairily.  Wasn't the GC also by far the most power efficient out of the 6th gen consoles?  Or this could be about the follow up to the 3DS.  Or it could also indicate yet another underpowered console  Nyaa

On the other hand, can you blame Nintendo?  The GC, while being rather advanced in it's own way, didn't end up selling like hotcakes.  In fact, the WiiU is the first Nintendo console to be considered 'underpowered' that hasn't been succesfull for them.
