I've never heard of isolating the green channel of the normal map and using it as a paint layer. What effect does that create exactly?

WARNING They dont listen to their users as much as they like to say they do. Check their forums. Plenty of requests go unanswered. Their "To Do" list has been outdated. They lack staple features such as a Text Tool, Adjustment Layers, Channels, Layer Styling, Proper Cropping. Paintstorm cant even resize a photo correctly (It will always leave a border when resizes). You also run into square artifacts occasionally. There have also been several instances were paintstorm was detected as malware, once called out, the dev reuploads a clean version. This happened at least twice from forum reports and Virus Total. Aside from the very obvious lack of support and maintinence. The brush system is good. However a good brush engine will not replace the other basic features and functions paintstorm lacks. DO NOT expect support. This is definitely a homegrown app and it shows. If you want a versatile brush engine, clip studio or even krita is where its at.

Nintendo to stop Wii U production

Some of the firms in the supply chain have already shut down production of their parts. The existing stockpile is said to be exhausted before the end of the year, but it is also said that despite this closure, Nintendo intends to continue developing Wii U software.

On a more personal note, I like the Wii U a lot, but it did absolutely nothing for Nintendo as a company. This move makes total sense

Dr. Serkan Toto, Kantan Games analyst

The story of Wii U dates back to November of 2012, Since its launch, Wii U has sold 12.60 million systems worldwide. Wii U is one the lowest selling consoles in the history of Nintendo, so this step seems quite logical indeed. Perhaps next product, which is said to be quite powerful, will live up to the success of some of Nintendo’s consoles.
