I've never argued it was horrible. It's pretty decent for a portable. Just that it's inferior to actual sticks. Do you prefer it to sticks? If so, I think you're in the minority.

Another thing, does anyone notice any difference in A,B,X,Y buttons?
Indeed buttons from what I've previously seen from the web looked tiny and uncomfortable like those on DSi, so I hope they have manage to address this issue.

Yes we would be able to not scratch the pad. But explain that to a 8,9,10 year old child to not touch and scratch the screen with it ;)

what the fuck? that isn't remotely close to what I said. I don't play on the phone and meet random strangers that I have a good conversation with. You don't just pick up the phone and it'll automatically call other people. You need numbers to call them and you can't know the number unless you know the person or know a person that know that person. I play games online and I find the occasional person who plays really well with me and we make a great team, so I add them because I saw their online name.

Seems to me you're just putting a fucking stupid excuse to make usernames sound like an idiotic idea.

"being "dependent" on meeting new friends online"

Not even sure why its so hard to believe that I like making friends online, I am in a forum you know. If you have personal friends who play with you constantly then that's good for you, but I don't, so I play online with others.

I honestly bet it would be way more comfy. I held the flat one at E3 last year, and I personally didn't find it nearly as comfy as all the journalists did. The extra stuff on the back would make it way more ergonomic, IMO.

"being "dependent" on meeting new friends online"

Not even sure why its so hard to believe that I like making friends online, I am in a forum you know.

Tell me how meeting random people online and wanting to play with them again is different from, say, going to a party and meeting a random person you liked getting to know. You want to stay in touch with both. Real person gives you a phone number and a name. It's up to you to establish who that person is by recalling those details as they relate to the phone number, either by storing them somewhere or simple memory.

With friend codes, you get an added benefit... a name they designate and a Mii, a PHYSICAL REPRESENTATION of that person, to reference to.

You postulated a scenario where people will change their usernames like they change underwear, which simply isn't the case.

Maybe I want to call myself Terrell on my WiiU profile, not Terrell(insert 5 random numbers here because someone already has that name and I can't have it)

The benefit to each individual user outweighs your need for convenience because you barely know the people you game with and can't tell them apart (which is irrelevant, since the Mii they assign to their profile still lets you tell them apart from the rest anyways)

And lastly, making friends online and being "dependent" on doing so online are 2 different things. If I want to make friends, the only thing I'm "dependent" on to do it is my 2 feet propelling me outside to meet people.

Yeah. It'll likely be like the 3DS Notification Light.

From left to right: Charger, Headphone, IR, Toggle Switch for something or other.

Agreed. It seemed to go through AA batteries faster than the GBA to me. Glad I won't have to deal with that anymore.

DKCR, Kirby, and NSMBWii are compatible with a Classic Controller? I thought they were Wii-mote only.

Well, i'm partially owned ><

As people following the speculation threads know, i've waited for the 21st of this month, when i'll normally become member, to reveal this (not a picture though).

I already stated when the Rayman Trailer leaked that:

This is NOT the final & definitive controller. The one used in this trailer isn't the "updated" model.

And hinted throughout all these threads that we'll see alterations on the DRC

I also tried to have a confirmation of what i've heard from my sources through a confirmed developer here, by exchanging with him some messages, 1 month ago, like this one:

Private Message: I have new infos to confirm :)

Hey lherre, how are you ? Still busy with your development ?

I have some new infos to confirm and talk with you if you don't mind.

The "mass production" dev kits are available to be ordered by studios (my source will receive them soon, i guess it's the "v5" or final dev kits ?).

BLANK (please lherre do not say it lol)

There are changes made in the DRC, in button placements, and the sticks will be "bigger"

BLANK

I need to catch-up and find all that was revealed tonight, if it's still worth it, i'll create those threads i indented to do, the week of 21 may.

I hope they do sticks, sliders are a total fail.

But I also hope that controller isn't real. There's so much wasted space on an already enormous controller. Looks like about 1.5" of blank slate on the left side.

Seems to me you're just putting a fucking stupid excuse to make usernames sound like an idiotic idea.

You could technically add people you've met online often without their friend code if they implement something like Sony in PSN (and I guess Microsoft also) : a list of people you've recently encountered.

I don't like the fact that the nickname and the login are the same on PSN/XBL : you have to use different names on forums, on PSN, on XBL, etc. or use numbers or other modifiers to the nickname. Not so convenient (I keep forgetting who is who because of this in my friendlists). For that, at least, the system of friends codes seems interesting to me.

But they indeed need a true account system, cross-platform (and obviously cross-game).


Edit : OT, indeed. Sorry for that, I though we were in the speculation thread.
