  1. N-Europe (Super) Mario Kart League 2020

    So is the SMK League going to run on random Thursdays in place of that week’s MK8DX League night then?
  2. Your 2020 Gaming Diary

    Between those three? Three Houses is the right choice.
  3. N-Europe Video Game Club

    While Kirby Superstar is the better game? I think that Kirby's Dreamland 3 is the better choice here as less people would've played it before and I think it'll make for some interesting conversation afterwards (especially for people that actually manage to 100% it; and especially for people that have played Kirby 64 before, which is a direct sequel to KDL3 in particular). My personal best pick would be Starfox 2 though. It's one of the most interesting and (secretly) one of the most important games in Nintendo's history. There is so much that the likes of Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time owe to Starfox 2 in particular! Add on its psuedo randomised nature and it'll make for some very interesting comments!
  4. Pure software. You basically turn on video streaming and input re-direction on the 3DS and then there's a piece of software that you run on a PC that accepts & displays the video stream, and also sends button & touch screen inputs back to the 3DS (effectively allowing you to use any controller you want with the 3DS). Works surprisingly well; especially considering that the New3DS (doesn't work on old 3DS models) was never designed to do video recording/streaming! And it doesn't affect the performance of the games themselves in any way whatsoever. Video quality is dependent on the quality of your WiFi connection, but you can expect a pretty solid 30FPS (for the top screen at least) and the quality is pretty good all around; it's also limited to native 3DS/VC titles only. As soon as you put the system into DS/GBA mode? It stops working. There are hardware mods you can do that offer better quality and 60FPS capture, but the equipment needed is super expensive, no-longer in production and very difficult to get up and running, so I'm happy with this
  5. I have an Elgato HD60 that I've used for all of my captures. Works a treat, the capture quality is superb and the portablity/flexibility that it offers as an external capture device is really valuable (being able to quickly move it between PCs/Laptops without hassle has really saved me in many a pinch!). I typically use the Elgato software for video capture and OBS for livestreaming. As an added bonus, I have a spare hacked New3DS that I can use to stream video from; meaning that I can actually capture/stream 3DS games! (Super bonus points in that I can actually hook up an Xbox controller or a GCN controller to the 3DS at the same time!). My GCN also has a GCN Eon HD HDMI adapter, which allows me to connect it to my 4K TV and the Elgato (which also allows me to capture GB/GBC/GBA games too via the Gameboy Player/Gameboy Interface). N64 captures are also possible, since my AV Receiver can accept and transcode a composite video signal into HDMI (the quality isn't great, but then again... it's the N64! Short of bothering with an Ultra HDMI mod, which I am not willing to bother with; as my living room setup wouldn't really allow for it anyway, it's the best you're realistically gonna get anyway). Otherwise? Everything else connects via HDMI; including my Super NT. For the editing side? I'm lucky enough to have access to the full Adobe suite thanks to my brother (So full fat Adobe Aftereffects, Adobe Audition, Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Premiere Pro). I do most of my captures using my living room Alienware Alpha small formfactor PC, with the Elgato connected to a HDMI splitter coming out of my AV Receiver (I use a Logitech Harmony remote to control it all - thankfully the Elgato software is actually compatible with the remote control!); but for those times where my living room is busy and I can't do a capture there? I can jury rig up a ghetto setup using my laptop and the Elgato. If I'm doing a proper stream, I have a blue yeti microphone; if I'm just doing recording or am just messing around? I use my PS3's Playstation Eye for audio & camera capture (it's a surprisingly decent little multi-directional mic! Plus I can just hook it back up to the PS3 whenever I feel like playing HOTD4) Editing is done on a PC with a Ryzen 1700x, GTX1060 & 32GB RAM. The editing software is installed to an SSD, the videos are stored on HDD.
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    By the time this fighters pass has finished, the next Fire Emblem game will probably have already released... ... we ain’t done with anime Sword users
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    2 years... two whole more years of Smash hype... Goddammit...
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Byleth is coming out at the end of the month.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    THIS is how you follow up on the previous four!? THIS is how you follow up on Banjo & Kazooie and Terry Bogard!?!? LAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEE!!!
  10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Really!? Oh come on! That’s such a lame choice!!
  11. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    It’s Dante...
  12. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore (16th Jan)

    Oh wow! Wasn't expecting Etrian Odyssey to get some love here! That's super cool! Can we get some Radiant Historia and Trauma Center costumes now Atlus? Everyone knows that those are secretly your best games anyway!
  13. Switch eShop Thread

    Holy crap! FINALLY! It looks fantastic! This will be Wayforward's first original non-sequel/non-licensed/non-joke game since 2011's Mighty Switch Force (and even that was a spiritual successor of sorts to Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way). It's about damn time! Will be copping that day 1 fo sho
  14. Sega Ages (Summer M2)

    The reason why their release rate has slowed to a crawl is because of the Mega Drive Mini and the TG16 Mini (M2 worked on both of these). SEGA AGES got put on the back burner while M2 slogged away at working on the emulation for those two mini consoles. Now that those two are finished, hopefully that means that M2 can carry on with SEGA AGES unabated. I do feel that we're not going to see much of a buzz for these titles until they start on the second wave (which we already know includes Dreamcast titles). We've been stuck on the first wave for so long now that none of these games will probably make much of a buzz anymore. Sonic 2 & Knuckles is a nice extra, but it's sadly even more of a sign that SEGA aren't willing to kick the Hornet's nest that is the Michael Jackson estate and get Sonic 3 & Knuckles re-released...
  15. General Switch Discussion

    The reason why the Switch's OS is so barebones is not because of performance concerns; it's because Nintendo don't care to upgrade it. They've given up on trying to add features and their OS & network services division are fully focused on mobile right now (and probably preparatory work for the Switch's successor).
