    I'm just here to say two days ago was my 10 year anniversary here. Time sure flies, doesn't it. It only felt like yesterday I was an awkward middle schooler trying to make friends on the internet. Now I'm an awkward adult... nothing more to add to that.

    Ego minefield. Although I've literally not changed at all (I'm not willing to test that by checking).

    Breath of the Wild Leads to 3D Printed Nintendo Switch Controller Adapter
    Engineer designs controller adapter that allows one-handed gamers to play with both Nintendo Switch controllers.
    The Nintendo Switch is unique in its ability to allow gamers to player the console in a number of different ways. Gamers can play it as a traditional console with the Joy-Con controllers fitted into a standard single controller. Users can use the controllers separately within each hand, as two users, or even attach them to the modular screen and make it a mobile gaming system. A largely unnoticed issued is the accessibility for gamers with the use of only one hand.
    To be fair to Nintendo, this problem exists for most, if not all consoles, and is not a uniquely Nintendo Switch issue. One engineer, however, has developed a way to enable one-handed gamers to play with the Joy-Con controller.
    Engineer Julio Vazquez developed two accessories that turn the two Joy-Con controllers into a one-handed controller. Using a 3D printer, Vazquez two adapters: one that creates a right-angle controller and another that moves the controllers side-by-side. Breath of the Wild was even used as inspiration for the side by side version, as Vazquez based the design on the Skeikah Slate found in the game.

    In addition to developing the accessories, Vazquez also made them available for free for anyone to download and print on Thingiverse.
    Side-by-side VersionRight-angle VersionVazquez explained his reason for developing the adapters, "This adapter was developed by request of my friend Rami Wehbe, who wanted a way to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild using only his left hand, as he lost the ability to control his right hand due to a cerebrovascular accident." The engineer also explained that the prototype tooks weeks to develop and test but he wanted to make sure it worked properly in order to help other gamers enjoy games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

    Is the Forum dead?
    You can easily look at all of the topics and the dates that the last post was on and the earliest was last month, with most being years back.
    Does anyone post here anymore? What does traffic look like? Sorry if I don't know. I only poke my head in here for old time's sake every now and again so I don't really have a good feeling for the vibe in this place. I hate to see it like this considering it's one of my very first footprints on the internet, with the only other account I have that's older than this one is one I had on the Lego forums ages ago.
    If anyone is here who has a pulse, let me know.
    if you don't have a pulse, then get away from me rrreeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Trust me, there isn't enough money in the world that would make me look back at my posts from 2006-2010.

    So what you're saying is, Hnet Discord is the next step?
  14. Cassandra added a post in a topic Talk   

    I know that feel. I just post my writing here on a very rare ocassion just so i have it somewhere. ZD-i is dying out too as far as I can tell. With things like Skype, and ESPECIALLY Discord, gaming forums are kinda losing their place.

    Good lord anyone else have those days when you check out that super dead forum you used to post on all the time years ago and cringe at how all your old posts are the most obnoxious twee teenager things ever created? Or is it just me?? I hate Past!Me, haha. Why did any of you like her, honestly.
    It's weird how barren this place is now, considering how gung-ho we all were back in like 2012/2013 about never letting this place die. This has been some nostalgia trip... feels like my time here happened decades ago rather than only a few years ago. I wonder how you guys are doing these days, even the users I wasn't close friends with (or close in the slightest, or even flat-out dislike) you all were pretty special and/or entertaining and will always be a part of my teenage years. IDK, I doubt anyone will see this post anyways. Is the IRC even active still? I'm too nervous to check hah.

    I went crazy with BOTW when it came out. I took a week off work and just marathoned it. Did two 40 hour sessions(day inbetween each one) and beat all the shrines, found over 400 koroks, and beat the game. Can't wait for DLCs. I'm the kind of gamer that likes to game for 18 hours, inject a saline solution, push back in my eyeballs and go back for round 2.
  17. Luneth Uchiha added a post in a topic A book I wrote is published.   

    The hardest part is now working on the sequel. I wrote book 1 in 2011, rewrote it in 2014. I started book 2 in 2011, but ceased work in 2012 with school. I have 5 year old notes to look through and memorize again

    I am proud to know a published author then

    A book I wrote is published.
    My book, Ceatera was written while I was in high school. I rewrote it and then sat on it for three years. Now it's being published by Amazon.
    See guys? I did amount to something. Years of shitposting on this forum did do something productive.

    Just bought it today, only on the first dungeon but it's fantastic

    I've been playing it on the Wii U over the past several weeks, and I love it. (some spoilers to follow).
    Story-wise it feels a little more sparse, but it may be more because they tell the story more indirectly. This reminds me more of the Metroid series, where the story is told more indirectly through the setting, atmosphere, and lore you have to actively look for. The only part that was really guided was the tutorial section with the old man (nice callback btw).
    If anything I find the main quest more engaging when I don't have to complete things in a given order. After the tutorial section you're free to go wherever you like, up to and including going to fight Ganon. What kept me from marching straight to Hyrule castle and stabbing Ganon in the face was not that the storyline wouldn't let me; I didn't have the skills or equipment to do so. 
    I haven't noticed any issues with the graphics or anything. The only technical issue is the occasional lag when fighting too many Moblins. I'm conflicted on the weapon system. The upside to the weapon breakage is it encourages the player to try out different weapons and keep a variety on hand, so I'm somewhat okay with it. I'd be more okay if the game had a more robust storage system. Having more storage would allow the player to store more of the rare and powerful weapons, as well as spare potions and food items. As it stands they take up all your inventory space until you have to waste them on weaker enemies or sell them. You can buy a house and store/display weapons and shields, but only a few.
    The music is subtle and beautiful. It made sense for more bombastic overworld themes when you weren't spending 90% of the game exploring it. You still hear familiar themes, but they're scattered around. The soundtrack does up the ante during certain battles and segments, such as Hyrule Castle.
    Overall I'm really happy with it. They took a risk changing the formula, and it paid off.

    I've just been watching this series recently. It's very analytical  and I love it.
  23. Arachne added a post in a topic WHAT'S GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW? CATCH UP THREAD   

    Been away from Hnet for awhile. It's good to see some familiar faces.
    I'm mostly doing pretty well, except I'm still not good at socializing or making plans with friends. Combined with my unusual work schedule (work Friday to Tuesday) it's a little isolating. I've been working a lot, selling insurance.
    I got back into playing the oboe a few years ago. Mostly in the local community band, which plays a lot of popular music, but other project pop up as well. I'll be playing parts from Vivaldi's Gloria in a couple weeks, which is pretty scary for me but also exciting.
    I've also been playing a lot of Breath of the Wild and various games on my 3DS.
  24. Cassandra added a post in a topic Breath of the Wild   

    I really wish I could get my hands on it, and I'm so glad to see people raving about it. If this keeps up, Zelda will continue to have a promising future.
  25. Teto added a post in a topic Breath of the Wild   

    Also I don't know about anybody else, but this game feels full of Laputa: Castle in the Sky vibes, and making the association I can sometimes feel it in the music. I love that this game just like, a culmination of a lot of lore of the land coming together.
