AVahne commented on Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX to Quicken Pulse...:

I honestly thought they canceled the 3DS version considering how quiet they've been. Glad this is still coming (America when?). I adored the Wiiware original, but didn't like the mobile version much (mostly because they turned it into one of them social games). Hopefully the 3DS version will play alright, though I wish they would bring the expanded version to Wii U eShop.

AVahne commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

So they chose bigger, but uglier screens over customization and portability? I would understand buying an XL as a main handheld if the resolution was AT LEAST 854x480, but as it is now....Ew.
EDIT: Oh wait, there was a limited edition New LL available. That's probably the reason why the New LL sold so much more.

Except the DS games have the excuse of being so archaic that they can't be patched. These ganes are modern; they could make a patch to make the old games more compatible with the remakes if they want. Instead they decided to abandon XY, sit back in their chairs and wait as the money trucks dump fresh bills all over them.

Whut? Aren't these games supposed to be part of the same Pokemon generation? They're effectively making X and Y obsolete and forcing fans to buy the remakes. And before anyone attempts to draw parallels to Nintendo's New 3DS, IT AIN'T THE SAME.

It's surprising to see sales of the old 3DS and LL UP from last week despite the newer consoles. Aren't the new consoles currently priced about the same as the old ones? I haven't heard anything about a price drop yet.

AVahne commented on New Nintendo 3DS 'Kawaii' Kisekae Faceplates J...:

Hmmm, no clue what plates to get... But at for me, I've reached a compromise with my collector self to trade in my Zelda OG 3DS:
I'm going to scan in my 3DS, top and bottom, and make a sort of stencil template on PS so I can spray those designs onto the standard black plates that the NN3DS comes with. Then just apply some glossy clear coat and voila

@sillygostly
Nintendo's simply following industry trends. PSP and PS3 paid themes cost about the same price as these (or more expensive) and aren't nearly as nice. Sure you can get custom themes for those consoles, but in terms of paid themes the 3DS themes are priced "fairly". You can expect Vita, PS4, and XBone themes to cost about the same prices. Besides, Japan got some free downloadable themes that we'll probably see later on as well.

The Rosalina one would look great on my sea green 2DS. Problem is, my 2DS is my secondary 3DS, meaning it doesn't have anything linked to it since I'm waiting for the day Nintendo implements a REAL account system on their consoles. I'll probably have to wait 3 years for that....

AVahne commented on Inquisitive Gamers Stumble Across Potential eS...:

So they really Were working on this thing after all. Hopefully it'll be the start of a true account system from Nintendo. They really need to copy PSN, where the user gets to control what devices are on their account and which ones are allowed to have games and other media installed on it.
As for the store, they should avoid the PSN Store and copy Google Play store instead. The browser PSN store is really slow, while the on-device store is annoying to navigate. Sure, you can find games easily, but it's difficult finding relevant DLC, vudeos, and demos for the game. Nintendo eShop has it beat in this category. Anyway, they should make it more like Google Play in terms of ease of use and speed; it's the best webstore I know of at the moment.

Mine (late 2011) hasn't broken, other than the circle pad tearing up (supa-glued it back on) and the plastic covering peeling off the (terrible) d-pad, and I've dropped it several times. However, I've been able to squeeze it with the plastic actually giving a little. That hasn't happened before with any of my other portables, and that scares me. It's like the plastic is too thin.

@rjejr
Well, according to a survey vid by Kotaku (I think it was them, don't remember), not a lot of people know what a New 3DS is yet. Then again that was before Nintendo started advertising it publicly, but they're gonna need more than just one commercial to reach most people.

AVahne commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Of course, different signals so they would have to patch support into individual games.
As for Wii support, it could be that:
A) They're using the OS version of the revised Wiis (the ones without Gamecube support) as a base
Or
B) an adapter connected to a couple USB ports DOES NOT emulate the actual built in ports of the original Wii and that the Wii firmware in the Wii U cannot detect the adapter.

AVahne commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Fall ...:

BTW, off topic, but no article for the new update?
It's freaking massive and is a wonderful update. Not only do we have themes, they've also redesigned the UI to make it more attractive AND made scrolling much smoother. There's also the popup you now get when you get a new notification, so now you can see what your new notifications are about before you even click the button (and then wait through the painfully long load screen).

AVahne commented on Square Enix's Latest 3DS RPG Final Fantasy Exp...:

This is GREAT news. This just means that they're focusing on using as much of the 3DS's meager power as they can to create theur massive world instead of wasting it on a gimmick that would use up way too many resources.
And by reading some of the comments here, it seems that no one wants to admit that the 3DS is very weak tech.

Why is a screenshot from the PC and China only Monster Hunter Online used as the cover image for this article? This is the second article I've seen on the net to incorrectly use this image when talking about 4G.

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.
