Re: No Luigi Love??
Perfect train game for the commute, loving it... Just had to look up where the A-3 Boo was :) thought I'd looked there already.
Yes the 3D is sometimes a pain, like all 3D games (i.e. move your head without moving the console all goes a bit blurry,) BUT still, this is great, probably better than Mario Bros. or Mario Land (my other two fave 3DS games.)
This story comes alomg every few years, normally along the lines of drag and drop software, mashup systems etc... will take over the world and BAs/FAs will develop everything, devs will all be out of a job. 15 years ago when I started I was told this, then it was VB and now its SaS.
Taking the egos and hangovers out of the equation
Sounds like a good thing to me, replace the very fallible system (a human doctor,) with a slightly less fallible one.
All hail our robotic (well medical "expert system",) overlords.
They do this because some BA believes that if want convince (i.e. not having to re-enter card details,) rather than security. Additionally card details (though again which card details are relevant,) for tracking usage of cards in the case of fraudulent usage or charge backs.
That said, card details should be stored in a PCI-DSS compliant store, so there should be no way of accessing the card data via the payment solution, just a reference token.
Released Too Early
Missing features (i.e. web browser which is coming soon,) and failing UI not what I expect from Nintendo, I guess they have now also joined the club of ship it out and we can fix it later.
Though that said, first thing I usually do when I get new hardware is check for new updates, which fix the product.
Having worked on a number of e-comm websites for high street retail customers, I can say they ALL used Java at some point and all of them could look at using the cloud (in fact I did a little POC using amazon at the last one, though using their S3 service.)
So yeah lots of us produce web sites that people want/need/use in java.
Bah 3 posts I must look like a fan boy
I agree, I worked with a bunch of game developers a few years back (not long after the PS3 came out,) and as far as they were concerned if it didn't have 7.1 surround sound HD output a controller that no one but a real games geek could use, they weren’t interested. The idea a game should be "fun" seemed a long, long way down the requirements list.
Was this a case of "What rubbish can I say to get EA in the press?" Currently the best selling console is "legacy"... Or could this be sour grapes that EA have failed to produce a decent Wii game yet (though to be fair no 3rd party, with a few odd exceptions, Capcom? have produced any decent Wii games).
