    aykay55 Just thought I should point out that where previously the Nintendo website would say "Rom File Size" it now only says "File Size". Good job Nintendo!

    aykay55 7177DDB1-35D2-4E53-B908-364FEB1EC116. Anyone notice that Nintendo’s website now says “Rom File Size” instead of just “File Size”? Looks like one of Nintendo’s website programmers slacked off again.
    aykay55 Microsoft just opened up PC to Xbox streaming. If you do Remote Play for PS4 and stream it to your PC, and then stream your PC to your Xbox, could you play Uncharted 4 on an Xbox? With some latency ofc.
    aykay55 Bored as usual and enjoying the Switch’s diverse library of titles (or lack thereof, depending on how you look at it) I was playing Apex Legends for the 2nd time since it released, and I realized that I just didn’t wanna sit in a chair staring at a monitor. That’s not what video games are supposed to be about, they’re about having fun and not fatiguing yourself. I really enjoy the Switch because it’s a super ergonomic console that you can take anywhere, but really any console would work. I just couldn’t do with the mouse and keyboard routine, and decided to shake things up. I really hoped that Apex Legends would release on the Switch, however it just wasn’t meant to be. Then I remembered that stupid ad which showed someone playing their PC games on a Switch on the go, just to attract attention when everybody knew Nintendo would never let an app like that onto their system. I looked it up and saw the name: Rainway. I remember seeing people streaming the Witcher 3 to their Switch before so I decided to test it out myself. I installed the program and launched it, launched Apex and did the web browser trick. When I visited the website to access it though, I was met with a black screen. After reloading several times, clearing cache and doing everything else I could think of, it was just not working. I'd assume that this issue would have occurred before too, which is why I'm literally dying trying to find out how the dude was streaming the Witcher.

    As of now, I still haven't gotten it to work. If anybody knows how to make this thing work, could you let me know?
    aykay55 Oof. Leakers just took their second L in the month of January; no Direct and no 7.0.0 update for the Switch. Either the leakers or the people who feed the leakers their info wanna have fun, or Nintendo is purposefully pushing back planned events just to make the leakers seem dishonest. So are Nintendo leaks no longer credible? Do I actually have to wait till a game is announced to know it is coming?! :wacko::ohnoes::cry:
    aykay55 I was over at a friends house a while ago playing on his Switch docked to a TV, he was blasting Nazis in Wolf 2 in hybrid console fashion. He was having some electrical work being done in the basement, and suddenly the power for the room we were playing in went out. I got that strange feeling in my stomach we all have had at least once in our lives, when our power goes out while playing a video game, usually because of power instability, a younger sibling, or maybe even a parent, and it just vanishes, all your unsaved progress gone forever. However, I still heard the Nazis screaming their asses off saying "I'm changing positions!" and "Do you have visuals?". I took a look over at the dock and realized that the game was still continuing, right where he left off. The power going out is the same thing as the Switch being lifted out of the dock, and the Switch knows to immediately switch to battery power. All of his progress was still there, but he paused the game and hit Save just in case. This isn't a monumental feature which will boost sales and help Nintendo hit their 20 million units, but it is definitely something quite interesting that nobody's ever considered.

    aykay55 In the last two-ish years, I've definitely noticed an enormous amount of people, organizations, and companies start creating podcasts and I want to see if anyone knows what the actual fuck is going on. I mean, like, everybody is starting one. Some of my family friends, local organizations, YouTubers, news media, and large-scale companies, like Nintendo and IGN just to name a few. Not to mention the newly-resurrected GBATemp podcast. So does anyone know what caused this big boom in the Podcast industry?

    I came across this article by the Polygon, and I just got really mad at people. People. Not all people, but enough. I mean hackers worked months discovering ways to liberate the Switch from Nintendo’s shiny bars, and what do you assholes decide to do? Upload porn profile pics, huh? Scare little kids out of there childhood, while all they’re trying to do is play a nice game of Luigi’s Balloon World? Do you guys not have anything better to do? Did you really have to ruin this for all of us? Why? Just why? This just isn’t fair. Everyone was so eager to hack their Switches and do all kind of crazy shit with ‘em and you just had to do something like this. I mean it’s crazy, a little too crazy maybe, but more shit. I really am disappointed in people right now. Do you people not feel bad for your actions at all? Shameful, embarrassed, guilty even the slightest? This just can’t happen anymore. This has to stop. I know this blog post will have zero impact on the actions of any member or any guest on this forum, but if you please will, just think about it like this: Do I really wanna be that one kid who knocks over the birthday cake? That one player who fucks up the goal? That one tourist which ruins the trip? That one superhero who becomes the villain? That one person who ruins the mission? Yeah, you just did that. You ruined the homebrew experience for all of us. There is so much potential with these Switch hacks, and you just had to use it for bad. This has really gotten me in a bad mood, should it everybody reading this blog post. I mean, why? Can someone answer me? Why? Are people just so shit that this shit will happen all the time. You guys have so much: food, water, mobility, a Switch, a computer, an internet connection, and time, but you had to do what with it? Post porn pics to your account. This reminds me of the Wii U’s “pornbrew” app, which I will not link. That had me feeling the same way. Is this just the way people are? Are we as human beings incapable of change for the better? Would animals do a better job? Is this how the world is always gonna be? Will people always act like assholes? Just think about it. Or are you porn peeps incapable of thought, because that’s definitely what you demonstrated right now.
    aykay55 I came across a couple of Nintendo’s mail system and other subdomains.

    http://lstools.nintendo.com (redirects from http://mail.nintendo.com)
    http://mail4.nintendo.com (inactive)
    http://email.nintendo.com/ (inactive)
    http://extranet.nintendo.com (password required)

    Tbh I have no idea what the purpose of this blog post was. It was just interesting to see that a couple of subdomains which I assume are used internally are attached to Nintendo’s .com domain. So secure.

    aykay55 After last time, I've taken your advice and started listening to something other than love pop, so here's my newest addiction. What do y'all think of this?

    aykay55 I really tried to figure it out myself, but it seems impossible. This question will sound kind of stupid, but can someone give me the phonetic spelling for Fusée Galée. How the heck do you pronounce it. It is foos-ay gal-ay? Is it foos-ee gal-ee? Is it something in between? Could we just call it HackNX or something? Please?
    aykay55 A689B6E8-4050-4665-876E-A018EA62B747. So, I was browsing the App Store and I found this review for Fortnite. Reading through it, over and over again, it made me realize something. Humans are naturally stupid and ignorant. People just can’t help it. I mean, come on, how stupid can someone be? Those of you who don’t play Fortnite Mobile, lemme tell you all the sh*t this dude got wrong:

    1) The controls are okay, not great, but manageable. This is the only thing this guy says which is kind of right.
    2)The joystick disappears when in use to help the player see the screen better. It doesn’t actually disappear. You still move. Like, did you even play it? Once?
    3)The jump button is on the side. Where the f*ck else could they put it? The back of the phone? What’s wrong with it being on the side, anyway?
    4)When you click build, your weapon basically becomes disabled until you click the tiny build button at the bottom of the screen. I don’t know how you somehow found a way to click out of build mode and fire your weapon at the same time. Whatev.
    5)Get a console, you b*tch! What are you playing on, an iPhone SE?! Edit: Yes you are.
    6)What do you not get from “Invite Event”? You get an email when you’re invited! Not before!
    7)It’s very much playable, I only found very little lag/glitchiness playing on an iPhone 6s Plus on Low Power Mode on 4G LTE. You pay for like 5Mbps WiFi or something? Can you afford WiFi? It appears you haven’t passed 4th grade.
    8)I can’t even. You haven’t played this game once! Yes, there is a shoot button. The only button, obviously placed, on the left side of your phone. Do you even have a phone? Does your daddy only let you play on his phone one hour every Saturday?

    Are people really that stupid? Is this just a “shitreview”? It doesn’t seem likely. How can someone be this stupid? Just how?
    aykay55 Hello Tempers,

    I actually want to have a mature and serious discussion about this. I was just thinking about brain disorders and for some reason kept thinking of bipolar disorder, because I kind of have some questions about it, and was wondering if anybody here is or knows someone who is bipolar. You don’t have to answer all the questions, I know they’re a bit personal. I’m just curious about how the condition affects people.

    Anyway, my questions are as follows:
    • Does bipolar disorder affect you in your daily tasks?
    • Is it just mood swings every so often or is it more intense?
    • Has bipolar disorder ever lead you to take actions that you normally wouldn’t take?
    • How does bipolar disorder affect your social life? Do your friends know you’re bipolar?
    • Are you married or in a relationship? If you are, how does your partner handle your manic/depressive episodes? If not, does bipolar disorder prevent you from dating in some way?
    • Do you take medication or have some type of treatment/therapy? Does it really help?
    Again, you don’t have to answer all the questions, but I’d appreciate some answers. I feel like I needed to ask someone about this.
    aykay55 I always browse on YouTube for new music, parodies, remixes, etc. to listen to. I would usually listen to the new stuff I found for at most a couple days, unless it was something really good or important or whatever. I found this song yesterday, “Instagram Famous” by Zack Knight and Adam Saleh, and I can’t stop now, not a simple case of earworm, as I’ve experienced that before, the song keeps replaying in my head for a bit. But now, I can’t stop listening to this song. I don’t know if there is something wrong with me, or if it is just really a common problem. I mean I really can’t stop listening to it, I can’t stop myself from going back to it. Have you guys ever experienced something like this, and how did you end it, if ever. I’ll add the song just in case anyone wants to listen to it and tell me how bad my taste in music is!

    aykay55 Don’t those of us who really contribute to the Temp and not just yell at HB devs hate it when you spend a long time on a very informational post, all just to see one guy reply to it and add another page to the thread, leaving the post you just spent 10 minutes researching/writing to to waste, lost among the forgotten pages of the thread, which will also soon be forgotten as well? Yeah, I just needed to get that out. I wish the Temp had a feature which would - feature - verified, informational, contributing posts on the first or last page, where people could see them. Those posts could be chosen by the OP and/or mods. I don’t know, what do you guys think of such a feature?
