Zelda WiiU dev talks about game

Recently a dev of WiiU shed some light on the new Zelda game. Actually shed of light is kind of overstating it, he didn’t really say much about it. But that it should be new and good I suppose.

It’s Pok�mon vs. Pok�mon as players take direct control of Pok�mon fighters like Pikachu, Charizard and Lucario to battle it out in beautiful HD in the Pokk�n Tournament game, now available for the Wii U console. Developed in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO, the creators of the acclaimed Tekken fighting series, Pokk�n Tournament employs multiple move sets and abilities for each character, offering hard-core fighting game fans and people new to the genre the chance to master the game.

Quote:

"Pokk�n Tournament will appeal to Pok�mon fans, fighting game players and even casual gamers looking for an action-packed game," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "It’s another example of the unique experiences players can only get on Nintendo systems."


Each Pok�mon in the game – 16 total fighters in all! – possesses unique moves (composed of weak, strong and special attacks) that are specific to that character. Pikachu, for example, can use Thunder, which strikes down opponents with a bolt of electricity, while Lucario unleashes his patented Aura Sphere, enveloping fighters in energy. Playing as a Pok�mon and performing these special moves is both satisfying and a dream come true for lifelong Pok�mon fans. In addition to the main 16 playable Pok�mon, 30 additional Pok�mon can be called upon to support the player in battle. These support Pok�mon include some beloved characters like Diglett and Magneton, and can turn the tide of battle by temporarily helping when called.

In the game’s fun single-player mode, players can level up a Pok�mon’s stats like Attack and Defense as they battle other fighters in various leagues. Players can even personalize their trainer card with their preferred Pok�mon fighter, customized clothing for their avatar and an online greeting. This online greeting will be used when battling other Pokk�n Tournament players in the game’s online mode.* In addition to playing online, players can battle friends and family members in local multiplayer matches. When playing local multiplayer, one player plays on the Wii U GamePad controller, while the other uses the TV screen and either a Wii U Pro Controller, Classic Controller or the Pokk�n controller (sold separately).

Pokk�n Tournament also includes amiibo support. Tapping any amiibo figure or card (sold separately) will unlock items in the game. As a bonus, players who purchase the physical version of the game at launch will receive a Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card bundled with the game. When used, this special card instantly unlocks Shadow Mewtwo as a playable character.

Pokk�n Tournament is now available at a suggested retail price of $59.99, and can be purchased in stores, in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U and at Nintendo.com. For more information about the game, visit http://www.pokkentournament.com.

Remember that Wii U features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu.

* Internet access is required for online play. For more info, go to support.nintendo.com.


So are you going to join in the fun of training your Pokemon and battling it out with friends and family and online strangers?

Nintendo�s Win in Patent Case against Wii Confirmed

Plaintiff Must Pay Fees

On March 1st, 2016, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals found that Nintendo�s Wii console does not infringe patents asserted by UltimatePointer, LLC.

A few years ago, the company called Ultimate Pointer started fighting big ‘N’ over the fact that the original Nintendo Wii remote controller looks and works very similar to their UPoint device as pictured above.

Well after many court battles, Nintendo as usual finally wins over this so-called patent troll, regarding their product which at least in this case did exist for a few months even tho it never took off, it was marketed towards execs to use in boardrooms instead of laser pointer, but it never took off.

Quote:

On March 1, 2016, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals found that Nintendo’s Wii console does not infringe patents asserted by UltimatePointer, LLC. This decision confirms Nintendo’s win in a Seattle Federal court, where UltimatePointer claimed that the Wii infringed patent numbers 8,049,729 and 7,746,321.

The Appeals Court also confirmed the Seattle Court’s ruling that UltimatePointer was required to pay some of Nintendo’s attorney fees. UltimatePointer was found to have engaged in "bad faith, vexatious, [and] wanton" conduct when deciding to accuse products it had not investigated and that, in some cases, did not exist.

Quote:

"We are very happy with this result," said Ajay Singh, Director of Litigation and Compliance at Nintendo of America. "This case again demonstrates that Nintendo will vigorously defend itself and its innovations against patent lawsuits. It also demonstrates that, when justified, Nintendo will pursue all available options to recover attorney fees for improper litigation conduct. Nintendo continues to support reform efforts to reduce the unnecessary and inefficient burden patent cases like this one place on technology companies in the United States."



This case does not end very well at all for the owners of Ultimate Pointer, as not only did they lose their case, they were forced to pay big ‘N’ all the court fees that they have occurred over the years of fighting this long patent battle, and most likely will be the final straw that breaks this patent troll’s back.

What do you think about the case, did UPoint have a case being similar or not in regard to Wii?

Nintendo NX Rumours March 2016

Rumours suggest that the new console from Nintendo will be released this year sometime and that top developers have gotten their hands on the machine.

Over the past couple of days more rumours have been ‘leaked’ by a ‘reliable source’:

  • It has a wireless HDMI dongle that attaches flush to the back of the device. A user can pull it out and insert it into any display with a normal sized HDMI output and the devices uses an evolved version of the Wii U’s streaming tech to display in HD to the TV screen.
  • Allegedly the analog controls for movement has small motors in them for full haptic feedback. Meaning if you control a character and hit a wall, the sticks move away from the direction of that wall to simulate running head first into it. This can also be used for jerking when firing a gun, taking damage, moving over rough terrain, ect.
  • It can literally Bluetooth synch with everything, especially smart phone and tablets to the point where one feature is that it can answer phone calls and display text messages from your phone onto the screens itself so you don’t have to stop and answer your smart device.
  • The closest in terms of “power” it gets to is the Xbox One, but an app idea is Wii U x50 and Playstation Vita x100. The key is that all the tech is exactly the same hardware layout as the PS4 and Xbox One which then combine it with the OS’s strong emulation functions and compiler means that any game that can run of a Playstation 4 or Xbox One can easily run on the NX with near-zero modification to the original source code, especially if it runs in Android OS or Unreal Engine 4. This is allegedly why Nintendo has given out the dev kits so late, as one 3rd Party dev put it “It’s the easiest device we’ve ever developed for. You just take your code, compile it and it works.”
  • Look to Pokemon GO to get the idea of the type of social features that will be in NX that will take multiplayer, AR and the StreetPass concept to a whole new level.
  • The real strengths of the device is its usability and ease of use. Developers have described to me more than once that it visually and functionally looks as if “Samsung and the Nintendo 2DS” had a baby, in that it looks friendly but unlike what most people visualize a Nintendo device to typically look.
  • The operating system, named NintendOS alone is very powerful and has so many modern features of mobile operating systems today that Nintendo is trying to be very careful in showing it off for fear that it would be mistaken as running Android. It also has a very strong networking functions as it ties into multiple devices and services allowing a very competent and pervasive eco-system designed to constantly involve the consumer’s lives.

New trailer released for The Technomancer

The Technomancer’s new trailer takes you across the wastelands and cities of Mars

There’s some catchy music in this new trailer for The Technomancer giving off sort of a space cowboy vibe to the game. Space cowboys that can harness the power of electricity.

Also, the creatures in this game are still something crazy every time I see them in one of these new teaser trailers released, and I just can’t wait until I can finally sit down and enjoy the game on our consoles or PC (if you so dare), and I am sure you will feel the same way after watching the latest trailer and reading the new info released below.

Quote:

Experience the distinctive, sci-fi world of Spiders’ epic RPG, The Technomancer. The game takes place on a dystopian Mars, hundreds of years after the first human colonies set foot on its red plains. Today’s trailer showcases a few of The Technomancer’s unique environments and dangers. Pursued by a corrupt police force, you must journey across these deadly environments and beyond, chasing a secret that could alter Mars and its inhabitants forever.

The Technomancer takes place after a cataclysmic event that decimated the population and isolated the red planet from Earth. The pioneering optimism of the early colonies has long since vanished. In its place lies no man’s lands, sprawling shanty towns, and broken cities governed by shadowy officials. The fractured settlements offer protection from the lethal radiations of the Sun, but they’re far from safe havens: desperate criminals and terrifying, mutated creatures lie in wait for the unprepared.

ABOUT THE TECHNOMANCER

Spiders studio is back with The Technomancer, a sci-fi RPG for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.

Technomancers are "mage-warriors", who harness, thanks to an innate talent, destructive electrical-based powers, amplified by their cybernetic implants. Both respected and feared by all, they are fearsome warriors trained from a young age to fight. You are one of them, about to finally pass your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.

An RPG, The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fighting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren’t necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you’ll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.

On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through forgotten paradises, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars’ dusty embrace.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars’ iron-fi st enforcers and alien wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?

KEY FEATURES

  • An adventure set on the sands and terraformed tropics of a post-apocalyptic Red Planet
  • 3 combat styles and character customization
  • Unleash powerful Technomancy magic on your foes
  • In-depth crafting which changes the appearance of weapons and armour
  • A world that reacts to your decisions
  • Relationships with companions that open new pathways and quests.

Your adventure on Mars begins summer 2016, available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC!

That last line above is the best news ever, we not going to have much longer to wait for this game that looks like it will be amazing to play, even if you sadly try it out on your old outdated PC gaming rig instead of our super-duper amazing new generation of video gaming consoles.
