I'm just going to say for everyone in the UK who's getting a New 3DS model either tonight or in the daytime, enjoy :) and welcome to the party :)
I'm glad launch day is finally here for everyone else who didn't import one.
the wait was very much worth it.



AmazonianBeauty commented on Battery Manufacturer Mugen Reveals Bigger Batt...:

I'm really enjoying the increased battery life of my New 3DS XL so far.
I've been getting around 5-6 hours with:3D on, Brightness at 4, Wifi off, Auto Brightness and Power saving off,
If i need more battery life, i have a 4000mAh battery pack and 3DS USB Charging cable i can use if I'm traveling. (Intempo PBS4000W) I know there's better ones.
Thread the cable to the battery from your bag or pocket and plug in to your 3DS when playing, just an idea :)

I thought it was annoying they've limited the choice in certain regions, and made both Europe and the US wait until Feb 13th.
Though being in the UK, i decided to buy the New 3DS XL Australian model (From 365Games) as i didn't want to wait any more and the price wasn't much more than the current price when released.
I can't wait for delivery now xD



AmazonianBeauty commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

Completely out of curiosity, i tried this little exploit to see if i could play a Japanese DS game i have and wondered if it would translate to english, i got the black screen, but the game didn't load. :(
Very nice to know :) I'll have to look into importing some US and Japanese games. Yay for exploits like this, Boo to thieves and pirates!



AmazonianBeauty commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

After trying the demo for about 10 minutes i realised I've got mixed feeling about this as i've enjoyed previous 3D sonic games like:
Sonic Generations,
Sonic lost world 3ds version,
the potentially good but fatally flawed Sonic Unleashed
(Why the werehog thing, sega?)
and my other fave Sonic Adventure (Dreamcast), as well as other previous 2D sonic games.
I just feel sonic has become a shadow of his former self, ever since he looked more like an anime character, and lost a lot of his attitude, and become more annoying and obnoxious



AmazonianBeauty commented on Shovel Knight For Wii U & 3DS Launches In Euro...:

I Won't complain about this as I've been playing the Steam version after deciding i'd waited long enough, I'd like to see how the 3DS version will fare against the steam version, 3D effect etc :) i'm Loving everything about this game so far, as well as the stellar chiptunes xD.



AmazonianBeauty commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

As a developer myself, I'm interested in this as I've always had an interest in seeing what can be done when a system security device has been circumvented, and in all honesty I'm not interested in piracy,but with the shady exception of emulating Games i legally own for the SNES for example, that would interest me greatly seeing as Nintendo, currently appears to have no intention of allowing SNES games to run on the 3DS, I'd welcome SNES virtual consoles games on the 3DS though, but as the expression goes, if needs must....i don't condone piracy or hacking to disrupt game services, shame on those who do



AmazonianBeauty commented on Majora's Mask Fan Project Gets a New Trailer, ...:

I Find Majora's mask's Time mechanic to be quite interesting myself, given there's 2 time states going on, then you have the song which returns you to the 1st day, great use of 1 item though :) I'm learning to code at the moment and i really like trying to fathom out what kind of code they'd have for each object in games that i like



AmazonianBeauty commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (W...:

I thought both this and the oracle series were fantastic games, i still have my physical copies boxed, and I'm astounded at how much each game is going for even on EBAY, definitely keeping hold of these, it'll be interesting to see what all my other Nintendo Knick Knacks and games are worth later on down the line :)



AmazonianBeauty commented on Monster Savings To Be Had On Nintendo UK's Onl...:

I'm really glad to have gotten 2 games from this very very brief sale, i bought Dream Team Bros and Lego City Undercover, i thought for a little while i wasn't going to receive my redeem codes especially for the price they were discounted to, so glad nintendo honoured these sales and everyone bought something good :)



AmazonianBeauty commented on Talking Point: Moving To Smartphones Is Not Th...:

and i think you've just skimmed past the part where i said "when travelling", and yes like most other adults i have a PC at home which i use for the same thing and other things like Software Development, Gaming, Web page development, and finally, i didn't really like Candy Crush, it just seemed like another clone of bejeweled



AmazonianBeauty commented on Talking Point: Moving To Smartphones Is Not Th...:

I have an iPhone 3GS which is all i see it as, a phone with the ability to do very light computing when travelling, ie: check emails, browsing internet, google maps, phone, text etc and maybe the odd play of fruit ninja or plants VS zombies.
To this day, i can't see how my smart phone could replace my 3DS for gaming, i play on my 3DS a lot more than i do my phone.



AmazonianBeauty commented on Your View: The Issues of Collecting and Owning...:

I much prefer Physical Copies of games and always have done, though i find having a 2nd copy of a game for multiplayer gaming (Mario Kart 7 for example) is quite handy.
So far i've bought a few games from the eShop but i do plan to buy physical copies as i've always felt owning a Digital copy just left me a feeling of emptiness, don't know if i'm the only one with this view.
