Monster RPG 2 for OUYA

I like them in the order PS3 > OUYA > Xbox 360. Anyway, I left it charging overnight so hopefully that fixes it.

I like Super Crate Box and Canabalt. Retro Racing is fun, I bought it. I haven't played a ton of them though. Towerfall was fun but I deleted it when I noticed it does online checks before you can play >:(. Haven't not tried Get on Top.

First and foremost congratulations for getting your game out and porting it to another platform. I've got a question, what's the fuss about OUYA? I've heard pretty mixed reactions and I have read pretty mixed reviews of the system as a whole. The bottom line was something along: "OUYA - oh no".

I think its mostly just polarizing. Either you hate it, or you love it.

The hardware could be better. The next version will likely be a lot better.

Have you tried 'get on top' yet? I can't tell if I'm completely missing something or that game is a boat load of fail.

I tried it by myself and it looked really stupid.

Android games on a TV. It is what it is. The haters just gonna hate.

Things will get interesting when some big players get involved in this market. Nintendo will need to watch its back.

Well, yeah, but when that will be? From what I've heard it is mostly for 2D games. In one review they've named some 3D title that wasn't running exactly smooth. Nevertheless, with the "success" of WiiU Nintedo should watch their back.

Amongst the most criticized points were things like the initial bragging of the authors and their exaltic statements about this being a killer of the traditional consoles etc. while this is certainly not the case; the build quality of the gamepad; and the lack of available games.

The author of the review I've read has compared it to a time many years ago when he got hands on some cheap SNES copy from China with 1000+1 games cartridge. He was like Forest Gump never knowing what he will taste.

Considering the current ouya was designed over a year ago, its not entirely surprising that it doesn't have the performance for some more modern games.

It's an Android device, if it was designed today it wouldn't be up to snuff with any PC or Sony/Nintendo/MS console. And it doesn't need to be. It's more powerful than a PS2, and look at all the great games that and all the less powerful systems had. If you just want a piece of hardware, go spend a bunch more money on a PS3/4. If you want to have fun, I highly recommend the OUYA.

Of course it doesn't need to be, yet it in the beginning there were claims that this is a competition for the current and next generation of consoles. It isn't, and it won't be. Though, as you say, there's a potential in it.

Well, there's NVIDIA Tegra 3 in it and that's not exactly just a pencil sharpener. It serves well for tablets. I think that the expectations and initial claims were just unrealistic.

Nonetheless, there's a potential for this console. However, it needs more games. OUYA is actually the first console I have even considered to buy. It's cheap and could be used for experimentation. Though I'm not sure how easy or complicate will it be to get it. On the other hand, right now it's just a gadget for me just as the first EEE PC from Asus was few years ago.

I followed the Kickstarter from day 1 and they never claimed it would compete performance-wise with the "big" consoles. If the article said that then I have to say that's just wrong.

The article refered to twitter accounts of the authors or something. Frankly, I don't care what they said or didn't. For me, right now, it's just a gadget I might buy if I'll have enough money. I was just interested in the fuss about it and the very polarised views on the thing.

Right now the Ouya is mostly about retro gaming and "party" games.

Anybody who thinks the Ouya is there to compete with the PS3 and its big budget games is just ignorant. Its 8GB of storage isn't even enough to hold the content of such a game. :P

The Tegra was actually kind of lack luster at the time, most of the other high end SoCs at the time spanked it (for instance, devices with a dual core SoC would perform better than the tegra which has 4+). And now, the current high end ones more than spank it.

My Tablet has a Tegra 3. It does ok, but it's nothing compared to the new snapdragons and exynos SoCs.

I would have ordered a Ouya, but wife officially said "hell no" to paying $100 to get it.

Man, you listen to your wife? That's... well ok, that's actually smart. :D

By all means, don't listen to your wife. After that, go find somewhere else to get sex, dinner, and a clean house. :P

And sorry, I don't have an OUYA, nor do I have $100 spare bucks lying around. Otherwise I would probably help you out.

I don't think he gets any of that from his wife ;)

I'm not amused.

You are making fun of me at the expense of my disabled wife. Now I remember why I chose to have no friends. I don't give a fuck what you think of me, but you have no fucking right to make jokes about my wife. To think I actually considered you a friend Thomas, you can go to hell for all I care now.

FWIW, I remember you saying you had a disabled son, but not a disabled wife.

Nothing matters and what if it did

Besides, those were bland and smart jokes about you Specter, not your wife.

I'd say take it a bit easier SP, I think most people here understand you have you difficulties in life and that was meant as a cheer up, not the other way round.

It is unlikely that Google shares your distaste for capitalism. Derezo

I apologize. I had completely forgotten that your wife was disabled. My intention was to solely poke fun at you.

I ported another of my games, Bobby, to OUYA this weekend. Don't know when it'll be live on the store but they usually review in 1 day from my experience so far, so maybe tomorrow.

@Specter - sorry man. I didn't know anything about your wife being disabled. I shouldn't have made jokes. Sorry.
