AlphaAlex commented on Nintendo Goes Big With Videos for New Nintendo...:

I've typed some questions on the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate review, but seeing as they haven't been answered yet, I'll just ask them here:
How many main areas does this game have (I think MH3U had 6)?
Are the ZL and ZR buttons on the Circle Pad Pro or on the New 3DS used? If yes, what can they do?



AlphaAlex commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

Hey guys! I have some questions!
How many main areas does this game have (I think MH3U had 6)?
Are the ZL and ZR buttons on the Circle Pad Pro or on the New 3DS used? If yes, what can they do?



AlphaAlex commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Demo Codes Now Being...:

Man, getting these codes is impossible, sad that it has to be this way (I'm talking about the whole code distribution thing). But hey, you never know! Anyone willing to spare an NA code?



AlphaAlex commented on Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind Loo...:

Interesting! I remember looking into this game not too long ago. I can't help but feel like they should of done this game after the second season of the anime to make it more complete, but that might of been too long of a wait.



AlphaAlex commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

@brewsky Ah, thanks, it looks like I have mistaken the tips page on that Super Smash Bros for Wii U screenshot for the loading screen. But are you sure that the tips section on the 3DS version also shows 3 tips per page?
Still, 3 tips at a time for the loading screens is still possible right? It could be cool.



AlphaAlex commented on Details on New Mega Evolutions and Soar Abilit...:

Let's not forget:
Serebii:"The first details from the Pokémon ORAS demo have come in and have revealed Mega Steelix. We're still working on getting details so please stand by. Mega Glalie is also in the demo. Mega Steelix gets the Sand Force ability"
Awesome! I wonder which Mega Evolution you'll be able to carry over from the demo to the full game?



AlphaAlex commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

At first I thought Nintendo of Europe were going to launch this in 2015 because they needed the time to prepare everything, but with no mention of the console on their website, the early November 2014 release of Australia and the free game promotion*, I'm starting to think that they just want to sell as many normal units as possible during the Holiday.



AlphaAlex commented on FAQ: Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS:

"On the older models, these elements [have] been disabled to ensure that the game runs as smoothly as possible."
Sorry... Thanks for the FAQ though. I thought I already knew everything here, but I didn't know that you could play the StreetPass mini-game with people who own the demo. It makes me wish that they should of included the mini-game in the demo, just like StreetPass in Bravely Default.



AlphaAlex commented on More Mega Evolutions Appear for Pokémon Omega...:

Serebii: "You can fly on Mega Latios & Latias in the overworld and find Pokémon such as Reshiram, Zekrom, Dialga & Palkia in the sky. Latios is exclusive to Omega Ruby and Latias is exclusive to Alpha Sapphire."



AlphaAlex commented on FAQ: Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS:

"Will Smash benefit from the New 3DS and its additional processing power?
It will indeed — posting to Miiverse and accessing the internet browser while the game is active is only possible on the New 3DS. On the older models, these elements has been disabled to ensure that the game runs as smoothly as possible."
Hey, don't forget that you will be able to perform smash attacks with the c-stick! You can't do that with the original 3DS, even with the circle pad pro!



AlphaAlex commented on Video: You'll Be Able To Play As Metroid's Sam...:

Hey, I'd rather have it there than not. I don't think it would make sense for me to tell you guys to ignore it if you don't like it though; it might be possible to meet some people using this online, and remind you of its existence.



AlphaAlex commented on Club Nintendo Members In Australia To Receive ...:

Apparently people from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland get the codes from Club Nintendo by putting in their emails. But when you think about, is it possible for someone who isn't from these countries to put in their email and get a code that works on their European 3DS? Is it... Possible?



AlphaAlex commented on Nintendo Confirms Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokém...:

@WiiLovePeace You need a Nintendo Network ID to download free software from the eShop, but seeing as it is a code, I could be wrong. Has anyone without a Nintendo Network ID tried this with a Tomodachi Life or Super Smash Bros 4 demo download code? And I think you'd still be able to use a UK code as long as the 3DS used is European.

EDIT: I don't know if it's the same for an Australian 3DS, though. Sorry!



AlphaAlex commented on Video: Watch Us Crack Some Skulls In The 3DS S...:

Every time I look at that game, I can't figure out what's going on! It's just like Kid Icarus Uprising, looking at a multiplayer match. Or at least, that's how it was before I got the game, but now that I have it and played online, what goes on is always very clear to me now. I hope it will be the same for this game!



AlphaAlex commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

On the last poll ("Which is your favourite New Nintendo 3DS feature?"), I would of chosen the option that basically lets the New 3DS function as a circle pad pro, but it's separated in two options, the c-stick and the ZL ZR buttons. So I decided to go with the faster CPU because faster downloads and a faster internet browser would be awesome! Hmm, but isn't the "Improved web browser (including HTML5 video support)" the same thing as the improved CPU? Well, not really. But the three reasons I wouldn't of chosen the improved web browser as my choice is because:
-there are still better places to browse the internet.
-it blocks inappropriate content unless you pay a very small fee. I guess that's okay since I wasn't planning on searching for inappropriate stuff anyways, but it's still too bad that you don't have full access to it from the get-go.
-this one hasn't been confirmed yet but the improved browser is compatible with the c-stick and the ZL ZR buttons, something you'd be able to do on an old 3DS with a circle pad pro. Again, THIS HASN'T BEEN CONFIRMED YET* (slight chances it was mentioned in the direct, but I don't speak Japanese).
The web browser is faster and can play HTML5 videos, but like I vaguely mentioned above it's thanks to the faster CPU.
*If they make an update for the older 3DS's that puts the block on inappropriate content, they'll probably do the same for the circle pad pro compatibility, right?



AlphaAlex commented on New Nintendo 3DS Delays Planned Homebrew Channel:

Seeing as there's all the talk about region lock, let me tell you about this "glitch" I found. When I put my American cartridge of Kid Icarus: Uprising into my European 3DS, nothing happens. However, when I put an European cartridge of Pokemon Y into my American 3DS, the game appears on the home menu and it tells me that an update is available for this title (which is wrong, interestingly). However, when I attempt to play the game, it doesn't work; it says that the game card could not be read. I have an idea as to why that is, but can anyone guess why? :)
