  1. Good news for developers all around the world interested in bringing games to the Switch! Unreal Engine 4 was just updated yesterday to fully encompass Switch's hardware, allowing everyone to develop with the source code for the system (but you will still need the dev-kit for 100% integration - with a price of $500 dollars). As Eurogamer noticed: "If you apply to become an approved Nintendo Switch developer, Epic will offer access to its UE4 Nintendo Switch forum for developers to talk amongst themselves about using the popular software with Nintendo's latest platform". The new engine update, numbered 4.16, is already available for all users. The previous version, 4.15, already had support for Nintendo's platform, but it was still early and limited, as progress between Unreal 4 and Switch synchrony was still being adapted.

  2. Let's see how globalized and diverse NintendoRadar is! Vote above, and if you want, post images and interesting topics about your city! Mine is: Barra Mansa, located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. By american standards, I would say it is a middle-sized city, by population (near 200,000). Quite calm (it's translated name is Meek Inlet (or something like that), after all), but it's been getting a lot more chaotic (in traffic, I mean) in these last years. Interesting (and international) historic fact: In World War 2, Brazil was still kind indecisous about joining the war efforts (as any latin nation was); however, when Roosevelt visited Vargas to discuss our entry in the side of the Allies, America agreed in subsidize the construction of CSN, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (or National Siderurgy Company), to boost our nation industry. The location of the facility? Yup, Barra Mansa (nowadays, it is in Volta Redonda, an old district of ours, that the plant is located). The plant is much more massive than this image; it looks like an city on its own! So, what's yours?
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL3Deh-wOaM It's just an rumour, but maybe Star Wars Battlefront 2 could be coming to the Switch. From this trailer, I noted: - Story mode focused in events post Endor (Imperial-focused?) - Content from all eras of the movies! The first Battlefront from EA/Dice didn't interested me at all, with amazing graphics (some of the best from this generation) but poor gameplay decisions ( which was really unfortunate to me, being a fan from the original titles), however this one could redeem them. Aside from DLCs and season pass(IT IS EA, after all), what do you guys expect from this? (ground-to-space, Galactic Conquest, no-pickup token to vehicles and bots are REALLY needed this time) What do you think of the trailer?
  4. FPS for the Switch

    For now, the Switch has no options in first-person-shooter games; the closest thing to it is Splatoon 2, but it's third-person. It's obvious though, that Nintendo will try to bring some to the system in the future, with first and third-parties (Metroid/Call of Duty for example). If you could choose, what kind of FPS style would you like to see on the Switch? In my opinion, something in the molds of Perfect Dark/TimeSplitters would be perfect: huge focus in local multiplayer combat (one of the Switch's high selling points) and LOTS of content (weapons, levels, AI bots, gamemodes, and etc).
  5. Is someone familiar around here with the Polandball meme/drawings? I thought that we could create an thread/something based on it, like gameball, what do you guys think? You only need Paint's talent (or not) to participate! Here's an example of mine: [MEDIA=imgur]a/1yAvH[/MEDIA] If someone asks, here are the references: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/06/analysis-xbox-360-poised-to-pass-wii-in-us-sales-by-years-end/ http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/112197/Exclusive_Sony_PSP_Versus_Nintendo_DS__The_Sales_Showdown.php
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cxixDgHUYw What do you guys (and girls) expect? Marvel showed us how to create an ellaborated cinematographic universe; do you think DC can do it as well? I kinda liked Batman vs Superman (although Man of Steel was too boring and gray to me). Didn't have any interest in Suicide Squad. In general, I think that DC can still hit the public. They just need to improve in the stories' and characters' presentation, I think. After that trailer, I'm really hoping they can bring a good blockbuster to us. I liked the characters, and Aquaman is now my favorite comically-serious character. (and aside of Justice League, I'm very hyped for Wonder Woman).
  7. We all know and love some good Mario, Metroid, Zelda, F-Zero, and many, many other famous franchises. Where is Mother 3, Reggie? However, our gaming tastes can be much more diverse than that. And by that, I mean, out of Nintendo's universe. What are your favorite 'foreign' franchises from other companies/platforms? (Sony/Playstantion, Microsoft/Xbox/PC) It's not really an exclusive, but Metal Gear Solid is ('was' :emoji_disappointed: ) an excellent franchise (still love Snake Eater). Half-Life and Civilization are great as well. Never played Halo, but I imagine it must be very good.
  8. Hello everyone! I'm was browsing the forums for threads about the next Sonic games and I found multiple abandoned/short-lived threads with the same questions, news and discussions. Because of that, I decided to create this thread and maintain it updated with all news and rumours, sort of like an 'complete' one. ( of course, only if that's alright with the mods; @MrMischief , @Buzz , @Medli , what do you think?) News and discussion thread for both Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania, from Sega. Feel free do talk and post news and rumours about them! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ What do we know: (this post will be constantly edited, at every update) Sonic Mania > Launch date: August, 15th!!!... and 29th for PC (Oh no) > It is being developed by old fans and modders from Sonic games, like Christian Whitehead, Headcannon and PagodaWest Games; > Physical releases to consoles are still not confirmed, but SEGA is considering this idea. Probably not going to happen for now. > Tee Lopes is composing the soundtrack; > 2D sprite adventure; homage to the old titles of Genesis; > 1.5 players mode confirmed; > 3 playable characters (Sonic, Tails and Knuckles); > It will have an story, that will advance like Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, with small cutscenes and level transitions; > No confirmed number of zones yet (rumour: 12 or 13), but it is know that it will have new and old levels; these last ones are going to be 'remixed', with new elements, enemies, and much more; > Scrapped levels (or pieces of them) of the old titles of Mega Drive/Genesis will be featured in Mania. > Confirmed returning levels: Green Hill Zone (from Sonic the Hedgehog), Stardust Speedway Zone (from Sonic CD), Chemical Plant Zone (from Sonic the Hedgehog 2) and Flying Battery Zone (From Sonic & Knuckles); > Confirmed new levels: Studiopolis Zone and Mirage Saloon Zone; > Returning power-ups from the older games; > Eggman/Dr. Robotnik is going to be the main villain; >Confirmed sub-bosses: Hard-Boiled Heavies, all based on the design of the old badnik Eggrobo. >The game is, apparently, connected to Forces... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sonic Forces > Coming at the holidays (December); > It is being developed by the main Sega Team, headed by Takashi Iizuka, produced by Shun Nakamura and directed by Morio Kishimoto; > Soundtrack will be composed mainly by Tomoya Ohtani; > The story was not released yet, but it is know that Eggman already conquested the world in this game, meaning Sonic failed in someway, while he was preoccupied. The plot will revolve around the elements of "power", "forces" and "teamwork". Multiple forces fight for the planet's control; > Like in Generations, Classic Sonic will be back, playable (however, this is not an sequel); apparently, he is an "alternate" version of Sonic brought to this world by Eggman; > 3 different gameplays: modern (with the boost ability, in 3D and 2D views), classic (no gameplay info yet), and a third, customized by the player, with gadgets that can use the power of Wisps; > Other characters from the franchise, like Tails, Knuckles, Silver, Amy and the Chaotix Team are confirmed as NPCs, talking to Sonic through the levels with radios; Shadow, Chaos, Metal Sonic and Zavok are coming back as villains! (?!) - Also, a new villain called Infinite. > Wisps (from Sonic Colors, Lost World and Generations) are coming back; > Red Rings are coming back (not know yet if as collectibles); > No multiplayer mode was confirmed yet; > There will be usual levels (go from point A to B) and time-limited levels. >The game will have a new character - and he's customizable! - Technically, Bubsy and Coldsteel are now canon. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Video links (YouTube): Sonic Mania Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ1SbHLXlH8 Sonic Forces Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCh9--2xcKk Sonic Mania - Switch Gameplay - IGN http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAySLwviwmg Sonic Forces - First Modern Sonic Gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zm0FvEn5CU Sonic Forces and Mania - Nintendo Direct from 12/04/2016 - with Classic Gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7bsS2mWDuw Sonic Forces - 2nd Classic Sonic Gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hY3KVTMm264 Sonic Forces - Custom Avatar Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5x1yL2kGT0 Sonic Forces - Avatar Gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJZfptketUc Sonic Mania - Pre-Order Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvD8NZN9Zsg Sonic Forces - E3 2017 Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tDMLXn99P4 Sonic Forces - Modern, Classic and Avatar gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvTn-jgPn_c Sonic Forces - Theme of Infinite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKjOJuPjiu4 Sonic Forces - Enter Infinite Trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn6uqp_mr98 Sonic Mania - Animated Intro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zA9zwpMj_8A ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To check for official news, visit the Sega and Sonic the Hedgehog media pages in Youtube, Twitter and Facebook.
  9. So that: http://segmentnext.com/2017/03/04/star-wars-battlefront-2-nintendo-switch/ and http://www.mobipicker.com/star-wars-battlefront-2-coming-to-nintendo-switch-ps4-pc-and-xbox-one/ There's still no confirmation about it (we will probably hear about something only in E3). So, would you like to see Star Wars Battlefront 2 (from Dice) coming to the Switch? In my opinion, their first one was really amazing in the audio and visual departments, however the gameplay felt very lackluster, reminding me more or arcade shooters than Battlefield (which inspired the first two in the older generations - these ones were golden). So, in this sequel, I really hope that they can improve the gameplay mechanics, making it more similar to the older ones with some things, like vehicles on the map, Galactic Conquest and Instant Action. Ground-to-space action would be cool as well (like in that old leaked gameplay video of the cancelled Battlefront 3 of Free Radical).
  10. The James Bond's movies are a succesful and famous franchise that has an total of 24 titles, starting with Dr.No, from 1962, to Spectre, from 2015. However, the movies had several highs and lows, thanks to several circumstances that plagued each one. So, for the fans (and non-fans) around here, what you would consider the best ones? For me, it's a close competition between From Russia with Love, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Man with the Golden Gun, Goldeneye and Casino Royale. I think that each one represents the apex of each one of the different actors that played Bond (the George Lazenby one is obvious ). Also, Moonraker is my guilt pleasure; sue me. So, what are yours?
  11. So, I was reading this article: http://kotaku.com/that-time-an-island-in-goldeneye-disappointed-a-generat-1793491581 and I coudn't stop thinking how that damn island made me crazy at my early gaming years. I already was (a bit too much) obsessed about Goldeneye, so it never went out of my memory. It was just years later that I discovered the truth about its presence in the game development. I also remember the fake code input to to play as Akuma in Street Fighter 2 (the first ones), the strange cheeses (and that exclamation point ammo box) in Perfect Dark and the mysterious beta stages of Sonic 2. So, what are your stories? Did you have any gaming experience that involved secrets/jokes/rumours/mysteries back in the day? (I have put old games in the title because it was a harder time to find the veracity of these things, but feel free to post about recent games as well)
  12. So, a general question to the community, just to our entertainment. Why did you choose your nickname here in Radar? Is there a reason behind it? Is it recent, or an MSN/mIRC's veteran? Mine - "Jprivady" - is basically this: J - the initial of my first name. privad - from 'privado', or private. I'm kinda reserved :-P The 'y' in the end was just to make it different. Sometimes, in other websites, I just end it with 'o', or even nothing else. Started using it in the last months of 2016 (never had any internet presence before that). So, what about you?
  13. Is there other BRs around here? Or other Latins (mexicans, argentineans, chileans, colombians, paraguayans, etc)? It would be cool to know you all here on NintendoRadar! Some side-questions: What's your opinion about the Switch? Did anyone bought one yet? And what is the price of the console in your country/region? Here in southeast Brazil, prices are around $800 to $1000 D: I found some online stores selling it at $600/$700, though.
  14. So, is there any indie games that you would like to see being released for the Switch, that was not yet announced to it? Almost everybody will say Rocket League, but I really expect that the folks from Free Lives can see the potential of the hybrid to announce Broforce for it (or maybe even an sequel, who knows? Just dreaming~).
