Boing Boing previously posted about YouTube user William Forsche , who had the forethought to bring a tape recorder to the movie theater back when he was a kid in order to capture the audience’s reaction to the original Star Wars . Well, YouTuber user Homer Thompson took that raw audio and put it alongside the visuals from the Star Wars climax, which provides a much better sense of what the audience is responding to. Han’s appearance gets the most applause, although the audience is pretty jazzed about the Death Star’s destruction too. The whole thing is a reminder of just how mindblowing the original Star Wars was when it first came out.

What this means in practice is shuffling left and right, adding other dancers to your merry band, and ensuring the balance meter never goes beyond red. If it does, everyone falls over – masks everywhere. Beyond the lovely graphics and audio, there’s a smart – if simplegame here. Some masks from newcomers added to your line shake things up, flipping the screen or temporarily removing the balance meter. Inevitably, everything also speeds up as you play, making keeping balance increasingly tough. We dont doubt the unique visuals count for a lot regarding Masky’s pull, but the strange premise and compelling gameplay keep you dancing for the long haul. Perhaps our favorite thing about Level With Me is that it’s, really, very silly indeed. The premise is to balance things on a massive plank, precariously perched atop the pointy bit of a

You'd have to be blind to miss this indie fantasy stunner A top-class graduate of the "Metroidvania" school of action-adventure design, in which an enormous world gradually opens up as you unlock new abilities, Ori is the kind of experience you show a reactionary relative who thinks "videogame art" is a contradiction in terms. There's the world, to start with - a dreamlike maze of canted-over trunks, thorny caverns and sunlit glades but it's not just a question of blissful visuals. Ori is a crisp, empowering platformer, with a main character who learns to scurry up surfaces and ricochet away from projectiles, like a spacecraft "sling-shotting" around a planet.

Taking place in a new Hawaii-inspired region called Alola, Sun and Moon introduce all new creatures to catch, characters to meet, and locations to explore. Though the familiar core mechanics are still there, Sun and Moon make a lot of interesting changes to a franchise that isn't known for doing so. By scrapping gyms for island trials, introducing an entirely new battle mode, and greatly improving visuals Sun and Moon make for a refreshing update. Never before has a Pokémon game had quite so much character. Although the Sun and Moon versions of the game are mostly the same, each version features exclusive Pokémon, so you'll have to trade with other players (online or offline) if you want to catch 'em all. Level 5's Professor Layton games consistently offer some of the best puzzle solving gameplay on the Nintendo 3DS so it's really something to say that Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is possibly the best of the bunch.

In fact, in many ways, the new ad stands as a counterpoint to the iPod work. The iPod spots were colorful and high energy, with the iconic white headphone wires whipping around and playing a big role in the visuals. Here, the whole point is that theres no wires to hinder your movesand Lil Bucks moves are intricate enough that you couldnt imagine him doing them with wires flailing about. The spot is also drained of color and has a quiet, artsy elegance (where the iPod stuff was way more boisterous). The gravity-defying scenes, with Buck dancing on the sides of buildings and cars, and upside down on a movie theater marquee (where, at one point, he threatens to fall upward to the cosmos itself), nicely weaves in the magic positioning, too. Its a nice poetic intro to the AirPods. And if they cant actually help you dance upside down, thats probably a good thing. Youd be that much more likely to lose those little suckers.

Honestly, I thought it would get squashed from the get-go, he admits, recalling that it took some doing to persuade the donor community and the board of Donate Lifepeople who deal with the sober reality of death and dying every day. They were used to campaigns around lollipops and rainbows and butterflies, he says. It was a big leap to even consider something this edgy. Loyal to the storyline, the video features some pretty jarring visuals: urine in a bottle, piles of dog poop, the unkempt antihero in bikini briefs. But the biggest issue by far among those who needed to approve the ad was the use of the word asshole, recalls Joe Alexander, Martins chief creative officer. Substitutions like a-hole and jerk were consideredbut nothing else packed quite the same punch.

That “mobilechip inside the Switch is pretty special, however. Nvidia’s Tegra X1 chip is a miniature monster and, while we dont know how much RAM Nintendo has paired it with for the Switch, it’s more than capable of pushing out visuals that surpass those of the Wii U (a more than capable Full HD console). Mario Kart 8 Deluxe ran at a silky-smooth 1080p 60fps during multiplayer on a TV – something the Wii U can’t do – and, although the demo wasnt fully optimised for Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ran like a dream in Handheld mode at 720p 60fps. Breath of the Wild should also run at 60fps while outputting to a TV at 1080p, but the demo build was locked to 30fps to ensure smooth play on the show floor.

And if his Motard visuals dont quite cut it for you, peep this tight cafe conversion from Germany’s Garage 667. Working from an entry level 796 variant, Jochen Diefke has built a cafe racer with a clear focus on performance. The bike’s beak and myriad other plastics had to go, and to nail the modern classic look, the Hyper’s tank was binned as well. In its place sits a unit from a Ducati 1098 that took some extensive modifications to bolt up and flow properly. After adding custom cross-bracing on the subframe, a humped tail and a Harley V-Rod headlight, Jochen hit the bullseye in terms of style.

But that's never really been the point of a Nintendo console, with the company far more concerned with innovative gameplay forms than photo-real visuals. Under the hood of its core tablet unit youll find a custom Nvidia Tegra processor, broadly comparable to the Tegra X1 found in an Nvidia Shield TV . 32GB of storage space is onboard too (some of which is dedicated to the system software), along with 802.11.ac Wi-Fi. The screen itself is, of course, a critical part of the equation especially given how disappointing the Wii Us comparable Gamepad proved to be. The Switch screen measures out at 6.2 inches, with a resolution of 720p. It proves itself to be a very enjoyable screen to view. It has vibrant colors, a relatively sharp resolution, and is able to keep up with the breakneck nature of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which we had hands-on time with.

Slick, durable, transformable, and a bit small but surprisingly comfortableall words you might use to describe playing with the new Nintendo Switch . The Japanese firm's upcoming console is a hybrid device , usable with a big screen television at home or playable on the go as a tablet. As a platform, Switch feels next-generation, at least in Nintendos renegade sense of the phrase. Its a home console. Its a handheld. Its a tabletop party game. Its something you can play without looking at the screen, or in some cases with your eyes closed. It goes wherever you do, delivering the same controls and game experiences youd expect from a dedicated set-top, thanks to a compact 6.2-inch screen . Its not interested in the diminishing returns of gamings pixel wars, yet manages to serve up spectacular visuals far more in tune with modern expectations than the Wiis were when that system arrived over a decade ago.
