Title: Metroid Prime: Hunters is not as hard as Trauma Center
Post by: Outboundlight on May 14, 2006, 05:58:46 pm
I also got this game for my birthday.

Anyone got it, and does anyone want to kick my ass at it online?

I might swag a copy when i get my DS lite (almost there! £75!)
What's it like? Single player and online i mean?

Only played it a little so far, online is a lot of fun. Single player is very similar to Previous Prime games (at least at the start)

Just Wiki'ed it.

"Snaking"

The execution of several consecutive mini-turbos during races has caused minor controversy in Wi-Fi play in the form of snaking -- players who drift their karts back and forth across a straight stretch to generate repeated mini-Turbos (a movement likened to actual snakes, hence the term, "snaking"). Because this gives the user a distinct speed advantage over other, "non-snaking" opponents, snaking is regarded as anything from a legitimate, advanced racing strategy, to an unfair tactic, or even outright cheating. Some players have attempted to form leagues (or "Friends" groups) composed of avowed non-snakers, but the distinction between a "snaker" and "non-snaker" is vague, largely depending on whether the player uses Mini-Turbos on straight areas of the track or on curves.

It is unclear whether snaking is an intentional feature of the Mario Kart series game design (since this could be performed in previous Mario Kart games, albeit to a more limited extent), or if it is simply a side effect of the game's Mini-Turbo mechanics. The dispute over snaking can be compared to the wavedashing phenomenon in Super Smash Bros. Melee, or the similar snaking technique in F-Zero GX. Most if not all of the quickest Time Trial records in Mario Kart DS were accomplished using the snaking technique.

I have Metroid Prime: Hunters and Mario Kart DS. I'm not able to go online with my DS using our internet connection (because of some crap security and firewalls), though, so I'll have to wait for my birthday to get that USB connector thingy, then I'll kick yer butts.

Btw, I've completed the single player mode in MP: H, it's not very long nor hard. (I didn't complete it 100% with all scans 'n' stuff, though)

Edit: That birthday I mentioned is in exactly 83 days.

I've been "snaking" since the old Mario Kart 64 days when boosting was just getting into the scene.

My friend Justin and I dominated in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.  We fucking brought them blue sparks.

I never really used the boosts. But it seems I'll have to start using them when i get the DS. Snaking sounds pretty lame, though.

Snaking is indeed lame.

Using it as a cheating tactic is rather underhanded, however, using the boosting as a tactic itself isn't.

Hmm....

Whatever.

I bring the fucking blue sparks.

Post by: Lysander on May 15, 2006, 02:33:34 pm
I don't mind people boosting, but using it in the way of snaking just seems pointless and a method people use because they can't win any other way.
Title: Re: Metroid Prime: Hunters is not as hard as Trauma Center
Post by: CrunchyLizard on May 15, 2006, 03:23:34 pm
When I try to do some kind of boosting while driving straight I always end up gettin a worse placing than if I don't, so I've stopped using boosting techniques anywhere but in turns.
Title: Re: Metroid Prime: Hunters is not as hard as Trauma Center
Post by: Cerapter on May 23, 2006, 10:39:28 pm
I snake if my opponent does.

I also have Hunters, and I like it. The control is sweet. I just earned my first Wifi victory the other day (my third match).

What gets me wondering is..How exactly are Nintendo paying for the wifi service? No fees are enforced, and it's costing them money to keep it running...Won't it be a matter of time before wifi DS play ceases?

Damn you whoever your are who stole or lost my stylus. *shakes fist at stylus gods*

So I havent really be playing my DS that much since I had lost both hid stylus things for my DS. I had to revert to using a clicky pen to play meteos! not very fun as it's a bit big and distracting. I'm thinking about putting an order in for the following games;
 - New Super Mario Bros.
 - Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan

Damn you VT, I think I'm going to have to purchase Trauma Center now... I've only read good reviews for it. But after I get the top two games

Post by: Goshawk on May 27, 2006, 04:00:27 pm
Snaking and the MK:DD boost are different. The blue sparks are a specific gameplay element you do by power drifting. Snaking is more of a bug, hence why it's not anywhere in the manauls. You have to blue sparks power drift far too much in DD, it's so slow and you jsut end up doing this over and over to win the race. Hell, half the power ups can't hit you if you're good. That's why DD is rather sucky, espically compared to MK64.

If all else fails, I'll buy a USB thing.

KairoMart

In a world... where shopping is a full-time profession...

<<"I'll sell it for thirty dollars!"
"Fifteen!"
"Twenty-eight!"
"Twenty, my highest price!"
"Twenty-five!"
"SOLD!">>

Where bargains are largely a thing of the past...

<<"Attention X-Mart shoppers.... there is a sale on detergent in aisle... ohp, never mind, they're all gone.">>

Where the best shopper has unlimited power...

<<"Oh yeah?!?! Well, I bought this skirt for only fifteen dollars!"
"You... You're amazing! I pay you fealty.">>

One woman is given the assignment of a lifetime...

<<"Amy, your daughter has been kidnapped for ransom."
"Oh dear!"
"Yes, you must use your unparallelled shopping skills to gain enough money to ransom her!"
"Okay! Where?"
"... Kairo. Er, Cairo.">>

**Cue techno music and screenshots of gameplay, showing the bartering interface, an explosion, and a cinematic camera panning Amy's concerned face.**

This summer... The only thing cheaper than life... is death.

**Amy fires thrice at masked gunmen, and then finishes a transaction with a rug dealer.**

Just so you know, the wireless has gone, meaning it's being taken back to the shop. Hopefully my step dad will return with a new router and i can be wireless by tonight. *Crosses fingers*

EDIT: Apparantly they've got a brand new router. Once they're home we'll set it up.

Fuck that. I attempted to install new firmware on the router and it just packed up. Dlink are officially a crappy company.
So we've got no choice but to ONCE AGAIN take the router back and buy a new one. I've got a decent one in mind, one with good reviews and stated to work fine with the goddamn DS.

If you get hit by a Green shell, you deserve to lose.

You can aim those shells pretty well if you know how.

Which is why, if you get hit by one, you deserve to lose. The opponent is either damned good, or flukey if they hit you with one.

I only fall off if i get hit whilst on the loop.
So yeah, you suck. :)
I agree with this notion. Fiindil you suck at nintendo

Go and play Rainbow Road for Mario Kart 64 before you start complaining. That track and moo moo far would have to be the best tracks for Mario Kart

No, i can. Stickys beaten me on MK a fair few times and I couldn't care less. Not only do you lag like a spaz, but you snake on every track, too.

No. He said you snaked as well. Because you do. Nobody, even in the fastest car, gets so far ahead simply by accelerating. You were sliding from side to side and gaining distance gradually. You were snaking.

well i pick wario for the top speed and also did you ever think it was the lag that made it look that way? ive played online more than you have and just because people move around doesnt mean theyre snaking. plus i mean its not like you werent lagging either. if you werent going so slow i mightve thought you were snaking
Title: Re: Metroid Prime: Hunters is not as hard as Trauma Center
Post by: Lysander on June 13, 2006, 01:59:25 am
Nope. The lag and the fact you powerslide constantly on straights are easy to tell apart.
Tell you what. Me, Sticky and you will play a round tomorrow sometime. Then we'll see if you snake (still) or not. ;)

I know your discussion is kinda over and stuff, but just to get it from another person's point of view: You did snake.

So, done with that. Let's talk about something else now. Like blue fucking shells.

Your mother did though. She snaked all night long.

Maybe, but not mine...

I've been training on Painbow Road, though. So now you won't be able to beat me there.
Unless you get one of those fucking blue shells of course...
