Huh?
His comment was just a comment. He can't help it if you read so much into it.


Anyway, I think we're all just feeding the ego/troll.

POW! Zinnnggggg!

Rifle

Yeah he got owned, his own fault for not knowing when to shut the fuck up and leave bad enough alone.

JD, Verno, Beamer, care to give redmask his obligatory reach-around?

This thread is hilarious! The four posters who got butthurt along the "lets argue with Axis" highway in the past banding together to troll and insult while calling out "foul!" and patting each others backs.

See yas in the next thread, least we know you all follow me around like a puppy wanting to be pet...

Pitiful attempt really. Beamer was just biting at the bit thinking "I can't wait to use Axis's cool comment for myself!" and used it when it wasn't even remotely applicable.

But hey you guys wanna make sweet trolltext-love to one another then let the blues denizens observe!

Again where do read into my comments of my own enjoyment somehow dictating success or failure? Can't argue with reality, it's not selling well and I've stated as much time and time again.

Yeah no sugar coating it, you were wrong about the Wii U. As for its success/failure, the comment that "well I enjoyed it so whatever" comes off looking like handwaving. People tend to have confirmation bias with their purchases so when people bring it up in a discussion about other stuff things get a bit distorted. You sort of brought this on yourself anyway by making the snarky comment about FPS.

So far yes I've been wrong about the Wii U's success. And?

As for my FPS comment, it's just a comment. I can't help you guys read so much into what I say, guess you're just an Axis fan, so thanks!

Your argument in the post I quoted was that you enjoy the WiiU, and the biased sample you encounter on select message boards also enjoys the WiiU, therefore reports of the WiiU's demise are premature. While the consequent is true, it's not because of the former. Likewise, just because the WiiU isn't dead yet, doesn't mean things are looking good for it.

Again where do read into my comments of my own enjoyment somehow dictating success or failure? Can't argue with reality, it's not selling well and I've stated as much time and time again.

I'm just happy to say I say I'm more than satisfied with our living room zombie regardless of that lack of sales.

Yep that's a fair review on M&M, and the guy finished the game on the pre-release version.

If you played long hours of Xeen or other early M&M titles, you'll totally dig Legacy.

A lot of people really enjoyed the Dreamcast too. A shit argument is a shit argument: a single individual's enjoyment of a product has no bearing on the product's financial success or long term outlook.

Yet on the other side of the coin Diablo 3 was a roaring success and the vast majority of veteran gamers recognized it was a piece of shit.

A single individuals enjoyment shouldn't have a lasting impact on any product's long term success. Did you read something somewhere that made you just realize that or you just being snarky?

Having read the gamut of forums the last month it's obvious we're enjoying our Wii U a hell of a lot more than people are enjoying their xbone or PS4.

Thanks?

Do more drugs Beamer, that's my advice.

The Wii U is in deep shit, the sales are atrocious no matter how many you buy for your living room. Nintendo needs to step it up.

I don't disagree about Nintendo making some changes, I've stated the same plenty of times, up to them I don't care one way or another.

I just got plenty more than my money's worth with the Wii U -- and have absolutely no interest in either the xbone or ps4.

Axis - what are you liking about it? What about some of the reports of slow performance and at least a few quest breaking bugs?

Well first off the feel is terrific, nostalgic feel like you are playing the original series with all the streamline you'd expect and just enough bells and whistles to make it interesting but not over the top bling-full like so many games these days. A real breath of fresh air.

I have an extremely powerful PC and am not noticing any performance problems on max running at 144fps solid (awesome monitor ftw) -- so I'm not the best person to ask. However the beta did occasionally stagger here and there for no apparent reason on my rig, so obvious improvements have been made.

I haven't seen any bugs yet. If something pops up and screws my current party over I won't sweat it as I'm going slow and reading forums as I've done this dance before. Multiple saves usually win, and I keep checking the forums for any gotchas. I also know it's going to be modded to death, so I'm not concerned.

I admit much of my enjoyment is purely cause I loved the originals (the early ones, xeen etc) so much, and M&M Legacy nails that original feel very closely.

Honeymoon period certainly, but I don't praise unless I know it'll hold my attention for awhile.

Most 1080p games on the WII U run at 60fps. Just thought I'd throw that out there...

Resolution is just one piece of the puzzle.

I run games at 1080P on my PC. I get 60 fps on some, 30 on some. less on others. Depends on the graphics options of said game. Would the Wii U run Crysis 3 at 1080P, 60 FPS with decent quality settings? I doubt it.


Thank you. It's amazing how many people repeatedly don't understand that, in a vacuum, resolution and frame rate are utterly meaningless.

But this report compares the same game on two platforms, which makes it much, much more meaningful.

Talk frame rates? Talk frame rates. Wii U wasn't included. I included it.

Having completed several of the old M&M games in the 90s, I can safely say this game has been long in coming.

I'm totally digging it.

They will. The comment wasn't about asap, just carrying...
Yeah, I know they do have past season episodes but I don't like to wait because I have coworkers who discuss the episodes the day after they air and I don't like to feel left out.

So they will start airing new episodes? That'd be good.
Does Netflix even carry any recently aired episodes for any TV shows?

Not really Ant, to get a solid TV show schedule HULU is the only really good option out there.

Hulu has a couple gotchas tho, nothing deal-breaking but also not entirely obvious at first:

1. Hulu has commercials. They are not long (an hour-long normal broadcast is about 45 minutes on hulu). Also a timer pops up when they come up so you know how long you have.

2. Once newly aired shows 'expire' (varys, seems about a month or so) you will no longer be able to access them via a device like Roku, but can still watch them on your PC. I get around that with my laptop hooked up HDMI to my TV, but if you 'keep up' within a few weeks of airing, you won't need to do that.

3. Not all shows are archived. Just depends on the type of licence they get.

Hulu has been great. I'm not much of a TV person, but for $8 a month you cant beat having access to tv shows for your family to watch when they want without a bazillion commercials.

Just google 'Seagate Firmware', and be glad you were fortunate enough not to buy many of those types of drives in an enterprise situation. I'll never buy or recommend another.

If I hadn't had the know-how to access the drives via low level telnet commands with a nokia cable I pinned out myself, one company in particular would have been completely screwed.

It's true though Ant, Hitachi drives are fantastic in my personal experience - never had a single one fail.

I've had several WD fail, but also a higher count of WD drives I've maintained.
