I'm sure he'll set his already purchased game on fire when he receives it. The DS version is not just different graphically, it's quite a different beast in a number of ways. It's a very interesting alternative experience and I don't see it as even being comparable to the PSP game, which I also don't see as being comparable to the SNES original (by way of Final Fantasy Chronicles). They're different things. I mean it's like the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake. It's going to be so different that I hardly think it's going to "replace" the original game. That doesn't mean it won't be something interesting to see. So especially if he's played Final Fantasy IV before, why not mix it up with something the most different? The comparison is invalid.
I'm not sure why it would be any different than the other Mario games. But in any event I grew up with the All-Stars versions so those are always going to be my originals. (And why argue with a rare game getting a reprint?)
Looks like new Nintendo Selects are coming. I look forward to maybe getting a physical copy of Ocarina of Time 3D for $20 please? Well even $30 would be an improvement. Some nice reprints here. Pikmin 3 unless MojoBox already downloaded it.
What are some other Unity games with console problems, though? I'm never that attentive to what engine things are using. I know I've played some on Wii U and found them fine, but they were probably a bit more simple in design.
The environment isn't really static, though. From what it seems like to me it's just a matter of getting assets streamed in. So the reason it would be bad when you turn the camera is the game has been laying tracks ahead of you and doing okay because it knows where you're going. As soon as you turn to look somewhere else the little gnomes running the game have to scramble to put the scenery in and Chauncy knows they aren't going to make it in time so the little bastard runs up and kicks you in the shin momentarily stunning you so when you recover and finally look the scene is set and the gnomes have disappeared. And that's how Unity works.
Aeris - The heavy smoking GameStop representative that calls you up to remind you that you can bring in the new game you've owned for a week to trade it in for another one. Claims to be Aeris from Final Fantasy VII, but usually sounds like a guy from Brooklyn.
I was reading that it can be a common problem, but I guess we just don't have many bugs here. Just centipedes in the summer. They're the only ones that seem to want to make it to the top floor. When I lived on the ground floor in this same area the only difference once the occasional spider or cricket. Maybe a couple ants, but not too bad. And actually no centipedes go figure that. But I've never had anything with bugs in it like that. Maybe one dead fly in a computer case that somehow got in, but never a console. At least the ones I've looked inside of. I struggle to think of how that happens in a normal environment.
One of these friends has only free or promo cups in their cupboard. Just a bunch of faded cheap plastic. Hasn't purchased a glass in his life. It weirds me out because he's a pharmacist and spoiler alert makes a lot more money than I do. But I swear he's the biggest cheapskate.
