AVahne commented on Orbital Gate Stage Brings Star Fox Mayhem to S...:

Huh, for a second I thought they were doing an HD remaster of Star Fox Assault. The models are the same, the textures seem to be slightly better, and the lighting seems to be similar. Everything is just at a higher resolution.
Oh well, Smash Bros U's graphics as a whole looks like an upscaled and oh-so-slightly improved version of Brawl's anyway, so this shouldn't surprise me.

Huh, and I thought that I was pessimistic about Nintendo. For people to be IDIOTIC enough to think that this is a marketing ploy rather than an actual reason....the Nintendo fanbase seems to be worse than I thought.

@Imagamerboi
I've already known about that. That is what the manufacturer of the carts says would be a possible cart size for them to make. It doesn't mean that we'll see any games that uses them. The majority of games now use 2 GB carts with just a small few using the 4 GB carts. Perhaps we'll finally see those theoretical 8 GB 3DS carts for New 3DS games like Xenoblade.

@Imagamerboi
There are no 3DS games that use the 8 GB cart (I doubt the carts themselves have been made as no games has need of them). The reason Ice Climbers aren't in the game and the Circle Pad Pro won't work on the normal 3DS is because the normal 3DS just isn't powerful enough.

@retro_player_22
I feel ya. Hope you can sell your Wii U for a decent sum of you do that. I'll just keep mines for the few games that DO come over here and just hold out hope. Not for Nintendo, but for the hackers to crack the system (also the 3DS) and remove region lock. So that when we're at the end of this gen and Nintendo abandons American owners yet again, I'll at least be able to import EU localized games.

Uhm, this seems like it's still in the air, so those of you who are still holding out hope don't lose it yet.

As for me, this is Nintendo we're talking about. I already have a feeling it might not leave Japan (or at least it won't make it America....freaking NoA)

@BensonUii
My guess is that the majority of games from now on will continue to be built on the old hard, with some games working on the old hardware but with improvements when played on the New 3DS, and only a select few games will be exclusive to New 3DS so that they can use the full potential of the new hardware without having to worry about supporting the older, weaker 3DS.

Basically saying that in addition to a few exclusives, going forward they'll be releasing New 3DS-enhanced games that can still be played on the old hardware but are better on the new one. Just like the old DSi-enhanced games such as the Japan-only Fire Emblem Shin Monshou no Nazo Hikari to Kage no Eiyuu.

@ZenTurtle
It affected Fire Emblem fans who didn't have a DS Phat or a DS Lite. Fire Emblem New Mystery of the Emblem (DSi-enhanced) was never released outside of Japan, and because the game had DSi-exclusive features the game will not work on non-Japanese DSis and 3DSes.

AVahne commented on Nintendo Unveils Transparent 2DS Models and Po...:

Holy s***, now I'm ALMOST regretting that pretty Sea Green 2DS. Haven't had a transparent console in years ever since my original GBA.

EDIT: Though, if they were going to go with gray buttons, they should've made the sides gray as well, to give off more of a classic GBA feel.

AVahne commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

Been saying this ever since the 3DS was announced as region-locked.
It should've been pretty obvious to anyone that this is their reason for region-lock. If they can get more importers to buy more consoles that they shouldn't need, Nintendo makes more money.
Glad I'm not alone on this.

EDIT: BTW, I haven't read the other comments yet, so I don't know if anyone else mentioned it yet, but Nintendo started region-locking their handhelds with the DSi. This affected games such as FIRE EMBLEM NEW MYSTERY OF THE EMBLEM HEROES OF LIGHT AND SHADOW twitch.

And while they intended to make MORE sales with the lock, it may have done the opposite and stunted their sales for a while.

Beautiful trailer. Hopeful that F2P version that Japan got recently comes over. It's using the same buy unlock method that Sub Wars and some mobile games use, so there should be less complaining about it being F2P.

AVahne commented on Hyperkin's RetroN 5 Console Allegedly Infringe...:

@3Daniel
True, but for some people there's the issue of limited space to be putting things like old consoles.
Also, your movie analogy works more on newer games rather than old ones. Say there's an old movie you'd like to watch, but no one sells the old copy anymore and there hasn't been a rerelease, nor do any of the streaming services have it. Will you just simply give up, even though the people who originally made money off it stopped doing so many years ago. It still doesn't make emulation totally alright, but in certain circumstances its a way for certain people to experience certain games that they never would be able to without it.

@3Daniel
That's nice and all, but unfortunately not everyone whose interested in those games can do that especially as time continues to go on.
Fortunately there's Nintendo's Virtual Console and Sony's PSOne Classics (also the PSP games they have available for the Vita to emulate), but there's the issue of pricing that makes people turn to free emulation rather than paid.

AVahne commented on Sonic-Themed Felyne Drag Races into Monster Hu...:

Freaking disgusting.
First denying fans of PSO2 and potentially PSNova, and now asking Capcom to put in their sh**ty, dead mascot? Not even a PSO-related costume?
Sega trying too hard to keep Sonic barely alive. Just let the damned rat sleep already, and start giving us all the GOOD games.

AVahne commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (North America):

Is the eShop demo limited? If so, guess it's good for me that I got those codes. Was never planning on getting the 3DS version, so whenever I DO want to get my smash bros fix outside the house, I'll have the unlimited demo.

AVahne commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

Awesome! But.... That's it? Either the game's release is really far off or they want to keep it as secret as possible just like Nintendo back in the day.
Though, that just means I can stay excited for much longer :D

AVahne commented on Japanese Pokémon Centres Will Receive New 3DS...:

You people are weird, these look nice. Never seen a Pokemon LE before?
Anyway, still loving the faceplates. Now I can just import Japan-only designs for my western system without having to buy an entirely new system, which I never do with LEs anyway as I see no point in owning multiple copies of the same model; even more so with Nintendo consoles since I dun wanna give them more console money than I need to, which is their whole reason for using region lock these days.
