Recent streams recordings (Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Party)

Welp, I’ve been a bit more consistent with live stream recently, I guess. 😅

To make this easier on the blog, I only placed the first two in the front. The rest of the stream recordings are after the jump. That’s also where the Super Mario Party stream recording is, btw. Also, I’m now streaming using OBS and testing using overlays. For now, the only overlay is the current time.

Better example of the sound emulation bug on the NES Switch Online app

This is what I shared on Twitter a few days ago.

Since this was recorded through the Switch, though, you can’t really see when the burn-in protection triggers. So here’s a video of the bug but recorded through a capture card, where you can clearly see (and more easily hear) the glitch that I’m talking about.

The glitch was partially fixed on the current version which was released recently (October 10, 2018). There’s still some sound distortion but it’s now very hard to notice it.

Retro Vs Modern Splatfest videos

I think I like the new Normal mode a bit more than the usual mode which is now called Pro. I find odd, though, that while you are in the lobby of Normal mode, you can’t play with the bgm like in every other lobby of the game. Btw, Dikong, if I get a friend request while recording, I usually wait until the recording is done to accept the friend request.

How not to promote the Nintendo Switch Online service

Aka, Nintendo of America’s recent tweet foolishness.

Nintendo of America recently posted this on their Twitter to promote the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service:

So their telling us that, with the new Nintendo Switch Online, we’ll be able to play Super Mario Bros. 3 online. A game where the two player mode is not simultaneous but instead is by turns.

Checking the full list of the first 20 titles that will be available, they could have selected either:

  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Mario Bros.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • Dr. Mario

All of those games have simultaneous multiplayer mode which would actually show the online service much better. But instead, they go with a game that goes by turns when switching player.

The only way NoA could have made this worse would have been if they had tweeted about playing The Legend of Zelda online.

(Btw, if you look carefully at Nintendo’s screenshot, the game isn’t even being played online but in single player mode, as noted by the player icons on the left. An actual online screenshot is at the bottom of this page.)

An old Super Mario Galaxy wallpaper

Here’s another old wallpaper I made quite a few years ago.  This one’s based on Super Mario Galaxy. At one point, it was available at N Masters but now it’s not available anywhere AFAIK.

Again, like most of the other ones, there’s no other sizes available. It’s a simple wallpaper but I like how it came out with the starry background effect I did.
