When whining achieves nothing.

First, view this tweet so you have context. Turns out WordPress wouldn’t put the Tweet in a image for three paragraphs worth of me being a smarmy shit. Whoops.

Yes, it has actually been that long since Nintendo introduced the SNES app to Switch Online members. With the announcement came an update; updating wouldn’t be normal again. It is now December, and one has to wonder where the updates went. That’s easy; the updates stopped because Nintendo probably got sick of the whining on YouTube and Twitter.

Matto’s YouTube Recommendations

Wait a second, I like shit on YouTube? I sure do! Here are some of my recommendations.

FailArmy

Let’s face facts: you and I love it when stupid people do stupid things on home video and the outcome is painful and hilarious. It is why American’s Funniest Home Videos has still managed to stay on television for almost thirty years, but AFV as people like to call it has faced major competition thanks to the internet, and one of those competitors is FailArmy.

FailArmy is basically AFV on YouTube without a host telling crappy jokes over footage. Need further proof this is basically what it is? Go on YouTube and watch old episodes of AFV when Bob Sagat was still the host. Continue reading “Matto’s YouTube Recommendations”

The golden rule for First/Third Person Shooters on Switch: make Gyro-aiming an option

When Doom 2016 made it’s way to Nintendo Switch curtiosy of the amazing folks at Panic Button, many took notice of it’s quality work. However, there was one major function mission from the base game: no gyro aiming. Gyro-scopic aiming slowly got a base in thanks to the 3DS and WiiU GamePad, and when Nintendo revealed the Switch proper in January 2017 and said, specifically, it contains DNA from all of Nintendo’s past consoles and handhelds, they weren’t kidding. Both left and right Joy-Con, and the Pro Control, have gyro sensors inside them. Continue reading “The golden rule for First/Third Person Shooters on Switch: make Gyro-aiming an option”

Just need to do it one more time!

Oh no, I’m not quitting Pietriots, absolutely not. Instead I am calling it quits on ranting and mocking Third Party publishers in their Switch support nearly two years on for being ass-backwards, and to those who still think Nintendo is still to blame for this. I am not going to bother linking previous times I’ve done this on this site because I think the point has been driven so deep it’s become almost parody and borderline predictable.

Matto’s Favorite Sesame Street Moments

Carol Spinney, the original voice and puppeteer behind Big Bird since Sesame Street first aired back in 1969, retired recently, so everyone was talking about Big Bird’s best moments. Sure, nobody can argue the emotional impact that was “I’ll Miss You, Mr. Hooper” (if you don’t cry at this, you are not a human being), but in all honesty, even growing up and out of watching something like Sesame Street, I have to state a controversial opinion… I never really liked Big Bird, ever. Even when I loyally watched the show as a little kid, I didn’t like Big Bird. Continue reading “Matto’s Favorite Sesame Street Moments”

No, Game Critics and YouTube Critics, StarLink isn’t the best Star Fox game

To think otherwise makes you an idiot, because StarLink is not even remotely close to a Star Fox game in style. The game, from what I’ve seen in trailers and footage, is closer to No Man’s Sky in execution. It is not a Star Fox game, and if you are crowing it should be, then you need to shut the hell up.

This is a real Star Fox game.
