Studying to become a Game Designer

Male, 19, United States

I am a video game fanatic, especially when it comes to Nintendo. I'm currently attending college in San Francisco. I absolutely love my Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, best handheld and console so far and by a LOT! Watch my LPs at Alpha2797 at YouTube.

If someone has a spare NA code and if you're willing to part with it, I'd love to have one. Send the code to me at
I currently don't have access to WiFi but I'd love to download it when I am connected, which should be later this week.

I really enjoy Mario Kart 8. I love all the courses! And as for battle mode, I was disappointed with the levels being the ones you race on but now that I've taken the time to play battle mode, it's actually quite a bit of fun and am now glad that Nintendo decided to try something new (again) with battle mode.
9.5/10 is what I'd give it.

I can see this very helpful especially to me. Rather than paying the full price of a game on release day, I can slowly pay off the full price a little bit at a time. Since I'm a college student it gets expensive and this is the perfect way for me to buy games. It's just my opinion though.



Alpha2797 commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are Confirmed for April:

I wish the Wii U had N64 virtual console. I'd like to get Mario Golf but it's Wii only! I am very sad, I love the Mario Golf games :(

EDIT: I don't have a classic controller so I can't play it on Wii Mode on the Wii U so it's "no buy with coins" for me.



Alpha2797 commented on Target Offers Free $50 Gift Card With Mario & ...:

Aww, I just got a Wii U last month. I would've liked to get a $50 gift card so that I'd be able to get Super Mario 3D World...I'd gladly pay only $10 for that game. Oh well, even without the gift card the Wii U is worth it! I've been wanting to get a Wii U since early last year and I was almost able to afford one too but the Fire Emblem Awakening 3DS Bundle was too tempting. (My original 3DS messed up too so it was the perfect time to get a new 3DS) :P

Then I had no money for the Wii U anymore because I started college but I got one for my birthday instead and I'm glad! Non Wii U owners, I recommend purchasing one because it's worth it especially with Mario Kart 8 coming out soon.



Alpha2797 commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

True, people could buy a GBA and the game from some source. But having GBA games available on the Wii U is an extra incentive that may convince those tempted on whether a Wii U is worth it or not to get a Wii U. But I do see your side of the theory and I hadn't thought of that. Good point.



Alpha2797 commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

I have a theory. What if the reason Nintendo is planning to release GBA and DS games only on Wii U's virtual console is to get people to buy a Wii U? I remember reading an earlier comment saying something along the lines of "Am I going to have to buy a Wii U to play these games?" This might be Nintendo's thought process at the moment. "People who want these virtual console games have to convert over to Wii U as well. I already have a Wii U so looks like I'm buying them for Wii U. I hope they don't take up too much space.

NOTE: This is just a thought of mine, my personal opinion.



Alpha2797 commented on Nintendo Force Magazine Secures Second Year Wi...:

Anyone know how long it takes for a digital version of issue #1 to arrive in my email? I'm curious.

Will be subscribing for year 2 once I get more money. I'm so glad that Nintendo Force is here to keep the spirit of Nintendo Power alive!
