Just a A Tiled Background GIF

1 Aug

I’ve been occupied with other things recently and so haven’t had time to update. One of those things has been playing Dragon Quest IX. I liked those backgrounds so much that I loaded PSE and made this. Enjoy. Let’s give credit: GrimDotGames for the sprites. Feel free to use this, and tell me where you did!

I’m Still Here, and Gaming Once Again

7 Jul

Despite the two week break, I’m still going here at TinyNin. Good news! My cast is off. I do have a two-finger splint, but hey, eight fingers, I’m not complaining. This means my typing speed is up, and also, I can play games again! Back into Kid Icarus: Uprising now. Speaking of Kid Icarus, it’s another reason for the recent lack of posts. I’ve been busy on another project here, Orbitars. That’s kept me busy for a couple of weeks, and should continue to for another week. I’ll be back to normal speed soon.

Anyway, I’m in a good mood, so have a great day everyone!

 

Thoughts on the 3DS XL

22 Jun

Today, I arrived home to discover the 3DS XL. Turned on the Aqua Blue*, booted up eShop and checked Nintendo Direct. Wow. The… XL? (LL in Japan) Not an E3 announcement, I thought the rumours had been crushed. But no, here we have a 3DS with 90% larger screens, 3.5-6.5 hours of battery life, and actual buttons for Home, Select and Start. I have a couple of questions though. Why no second Circle Pad? I guess this makes sense as the 3DS’ shape hasn’t changed too significantly. Also, will the 3D “sweet spot” be larger/smaller? Will the 3D just look weird? We’ll have to wait and see. But only a month. And you’ll need US$200. Again, wow.

Note: I’m unable to accurately review things (ie Dream Drop) due my broken finger. Sorry about that.

*Ok, I never turn it off. I’ve only turned it off about four times, EVER.

Don’t worry, it won’t actually have white lines on the screen.

Calciobit Artwork Looks Like It Would “Feel” Good

20 Jun

With a new website for the relatively unknown 3DS follow-up to the relatively unknown Japan exclusive GBA soccer management game Calciobit comes new art. Phew. Those pixels seem so tangible. It reminds me of the 8bitscapes I posted a while back. I just wanna reach into the screen. Those tiny soccer players seem they would feel like, uh, the pieces on that old Berserk board game. Ok, better shut up since nobody has a clue about what I’m talking about. The new site is below.

Pokemon AR Searcher Details

17 Jun

Nintendo has revealed a lot of new info about AR Searcher on the Japanese official site. The mystery Pokemon from earler posts has been revealed as, er, Torneus’ new form. It’s odd to say the least. I originally thought this looked like a great game. But  now, I don’t know about it. The first thing that struck me is the pointless story. Dream clouds? What? Then I saw the gameplay video (see the  official site). That animation… is that finished? Ugh. I no longer have any plans to buy this game to be honest, even though I want more AR games, especially shooters. Six days to change my mind, Nintendo.

9 and 1/2 Top 3DS Games to Play with One Hand

7 Jun

I fractured a finger in my left hand two days ago so naturally, as a gamer, I tried them all with my right hand. Here are the best of them. I’ll add pictures later, but right now MY HAND HURTS! Edit: Thank Glob for Zemanta!

Picopict

Art Style: Picopict

Art Style: Picopict

Uses only the stylus. Also try Rhythm Heaven.

2:

Kirby’s Adventure

It’s so easy you can use your thumb on the analog pad  and stretch your fingers across to the other side.

3:

Colors 3D

Requires absolutely no skill. Apart from artistic.

4:

FreakyForms

A combination of all of the above. Create, then use really easy stylus controls to play.

5:

Warioware Touched!

WarioWare: Touched!

WarioWare: Touched!

You only need one hand. Try DIY if you’re more creative.

6:

Slow Puzzle/RPG Games

Pokemon, Prof Layton, anything. If it doesn’t involve action, you’ll still pwn it.

7:

Face Raiders

One handed fun. The only thing is you look like a mega-derp when you play it in hospital. >.<

8:

AR Games

You can just create, or you can try playing.

9:

Mario Kart 7 using first-person mode

Actually, no, don’t.

  • You can’t press L, although I still won an entire balloon battle without L thanks to the derpy AI.

    Rhythm Heaven

    Rhythm Heaven

  • First-person mode is terrible and shoe-horned.
  • It just isn’t viable for online.

Streetpass Mii Plaza

GO FOR A WALK. Then get nice slow stuff to do when you get back home.
