AVahne commented on Video: New Bravely Second Trailer Sets The Sce...:

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...:

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 Will you just simply give up, even though the people who originally made money off it stopped doing so many years ago.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.



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

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.



AVahne commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

My pad's rubber top was already loose, the demo made it finally come free completely. Currently using super glue to keep it stuck on the plastic base, but it doesn't seem to be very effective....
Thankfully I'm not getting the full 3DS version (hate the controls); Wii U version will be superior in every way anyway.



AVahne commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

I actually find this pretty cool. They're pushing the old 3DS hardware to the absolute limit with this game (good models, textures, and animation quality considering it's a 3DS game) and them trying to regain some extra RAM from the OS by turning off multi-tasking shows how dedicated they are to squeezing out every last bit of juice. It's amazing what they can do with such decrepit hardware specs (even by 2011 standards; 3DS was outclassed by mobile hardware before it even released).

Now if only Capcom could do the same for their 3DS Monster Hunters games, so we can have slightly better textures.

EDIT: This also makes me a bit more disappointed in the Wii U version. Here we have the 3DS version looking quite impressive despite its insanely weak hardware, yet the Wii U version looks pretty hideous considering what it SHOULD be capable of. Regardless of art style, I expected AT LEAST PS3-grade models, not barely-above Wii-level. Also, what's going on with those environment textures? At least the game should be fun to play.



AVahne commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Ubisoft intentionally set this up to fail didn't they? Not only did they delay just the Wii U version, they're also up against very heavy competition on Wii U now.
This game will only have a chance if it's released at $30-40 pricepoint.



AVahne commented on Square Enix Temporarily Pulls 3DS Dragon Quest...:

Except it'd be a mess in America. Our Internet is waaaayyy too bad here to competently stream an MMO's data files AND keep a connection to the game servers open at the same time.
We need another 100-200 years before we can get to the same level as South Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong.



AVahne commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Collector's Edition ...:

Like others said, the demo ain't a good place to start.
Besides, the demo version of the Plesioth fight actually REQUIRES LUCK in order to beat, since you're only given 15 minutes with 'meh' equipment. Not to mention the damned thing just LOVES running away.



AVahne commented on This Adorable Yoshi Plush Soft Toy Is Now Avai...:

We've been getting shafted for years now. The last good reward they added was the limited edition gold nunchuk and the last time they restocked a good item was the 18 3DS game card case. They've gradually stopped restocking most of the items in the catalog. I'm sure the North American Club Nintendo program will be closing down very soon.



AVahne commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

I just feel really sorry for these guys. They've put so much work into this version, but delaying just the Wii U version means they'll lose quite a lot of sales just like with many other third party game. They'll have to release the game at a reduced price and/or include a lot of free DLC and/or exclusive content if there's any chance of the Wii U version making enough sales to at least break even.
