ArkOne77 commented on Feature: 12 Days of Christmas - Monster Hunter...:

@JaxonH . Yes. If you go to the home page and click on weekly ad at the top. On page 2 youll see it right in the middle of the page. I bought it when it came out and never played it because I was working so much. Buying it for my little brother so we can be noobs together. ( both new to the franchise) Have some free time during the holidays. Its going to be Monster Hunter & Windwaker hopefully. Can't wait!

ArkOne77 commented on 3DS System Update Adds Nintendo Network ID, Mi...:

@Knightrider666....I shut it off each time and started fresh. Otherwise it just throws an instant error. If you are extremely patient you can keep trying..... If not, I would just wait a day or so for things to settle down. GOOD LUCK! I got the update and the mii plaza update finally. I posted on miiverse. Worked fine. Went on my Wii U. It's showing a shared account balance. Now I just want to get on the eshop from the 3DS!!!! argh!

@KnightRider666 That code appears to be the same description as the previous 011-3051. (Can't find access point/hot spot error). Not sure when it will be fixed to be honest. There seems to be a lot of us impatiently waiting. I would have to guess that after the initial wave of miiverse madness settles down, people will be able to finish updating mii plaza and access the eshop. I had to try like 5 or 6 times before I finally got lucky and got the update for mii plaza to work.

@KnightRider666 .....I just did some research. That code means there is an error finding an access point or hotspot. I know my wireless is fine. So I went to Nintendo's website and typed the error code in and checked their network status. There are issues for the 3DS, 3DSXL & Wii U currently.(In the U.S. as well as other regions most likely) They are probably getting a network overload right now. I gave up until after work today..... Hopefully this will clear up with a little time

ArkOne77 commented on Wii Fit U Retail Release Delayed a Week in Europe:

Gamestop has a crap ton of pre-owned balance boards for about $22. They are usually kinda dirty looking cuz they don't bother cleaning them when they are traded in..... but those "magic erasers" make 'em look brand new. Sure beats buying a new one or a boxed set.

ArkOne77 commented on Wii Fit U Retail Release Delayed a Week in Europe:

I had a heck of a time getting the sales associate at Toys R Us to locate the Wii U Fit meter in the back and then had more issues when their system said it wasn't available until December 31st! I finally got the manager to look up the available release date for the meter and they fixed it in their system and sold it to me. (25 minutes of waiting and explaining to the manager)

For folks looking for a Wii Fit U Meter in stores (In the U.S.) Toys R Us seems to physically stock them and for some reason got a jump on the other retailers. Otherwise you have to buy one from Gamestop Online or Amazon or somewhere like that. Not sure why this is but I figured I'd share the info.

You are not alone Rory! This game is bad for your self esteem for sure!
Before playing this, I considered myself fairly decent at platformers......
It literally ate an entire evening after work trying to clear the Amazon in (hard mode). I was getting so mad I haven't returned to the game to tackle any more levels yet.

ArkOne77 commented on Early Estimates Place Pikmin 3 August Sales in...:

@AugustusOxy ....You do know you can use the wii remote right? Sorry you don't like the game, but maybe if you play it again with the wiimote control scheme. It's much more enjoyable than trying to use analog sticks f'sho! personally, I love the game.....far from atrocious.

ArkOne77 commented on Bethesda: The Time For Convincing Publishers A...:

@eaglebob345 Yeah. Well said..... Nintendo just needs to keep doing Nintendo. The sales will come after the 1st party titles arrive. Then some of these 3rd party developers will come crawling back with foot inserted in mouth -or not. They are getting the cold shoulder from these 3rd parties because they aren't kissing donkey and padding their wallets with exclusive deals and whatnot. It's all about greed & money these days with these companies and they forget that gaming is supposed to be a fun way to enjoy time with friends and family and to escape the stresses in peoples' lives. Either way....Nintendo is far far away from going out of the console business like Sega. They got fat bank like Scrooge McDuck!!!! And I also think it's safe to say that the PS4 and the XBOXDone will have their share of launch problems as well....

ArkOne77 commented on Bethesda: The Time For Convincing Publishers A...:

Bethesda used to make $$$ on glitchy games.......but they took an arrow in the leg. LOL ~(Goes back to playing Rayman Legends)

These guys are full of themselves...... For God's sake, the console is less than a year old. Because they aren't keen on the architecture/console doesn't mean it's too late. Besides, Nintendo has their own formula and don't choose to be a clone of the other 2 consoles!

ArkOne77 commented on GameStop Accused of Re-Printing Xenoblade Chro...:

@SCAR392 I don't necessarily agree that they are reprints either. However, I do think they expected a high demand for this title further down the road and held on to some of the original stock to capitalize. For 6 months straight the closest copy was 94 miles away from me. Now, all of a sudden EVERY location has copies by me.....(and possibly elswhere)

ArkOne77 commented on GameStop Accused of Re-Printing Xenoblade Chro...:

Metroid Prime Trilogy is next to be this way..... If you can find it. It is marked higher pre-owned than when it was new.
I recently lucked out and payed $65 for a pre-owned copy. It is now listed @ $85!!!!!!

Update: I just read that this is in fact going to happen to Metroid Trilogy next. They are calling these games "vintage".....WTF!?!?!

They aren't that old! It's seriously looking like a scheme to start overcharging for the harder to find releases.....like on ebay & amazon, etc.

ArkOne77 commented on GameStop Accused of Re-Printing Xenoblade Chro...:

I was obsessively hunting a pre-owned copy of this game locally for almost 6 months. Finally, one day I got lucky and bought it for $60 (pre-owned)...........Then it vanished completely for a couple months. Now this pops up.Something is definitely up. Every single Gamestop location by me has it in stock now. Hmmmmm. If this is true, this is some shady ish!

ArkOne77 commented on Review: Cloudberry Kingdom (Wii U eShop):

This game is awesome! I personally like the music. Certain songs as MadAussieBloke said earlier get you amped up when trying to clear a tougher level. For those that don't.....go into "Options" and pull the music slider volume down. Make your own soundtrack! But DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS ONE. Same goes for protagonist appearance.....change it! I made my BOB look like Raiden from Mortal Kombat. LOL

ArkOne77 commented on Nintendo Files New Eternal Darkness Trademark:

@Shambo ...Cool! I have a Gamecube, but was always under the impression Eternal Darkness was being sold at high prices like "Path of Radiance". i'ill have to do some hunting then. Kinda bummed out that Gamestop doesn't deal with Gamecube games still. There are a handful I'd like to get a hold of still....Thanks!

ArkOne77 commented on Nintendo Files New Eternal Darkness Trademark:

@Peach64 ......Couldn't agree with you more! I simply refuse to buy any of these hard to find titles on feebay & damazon at ridiculous prices!!! Never played Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance or Eternal Darkness on Gamecube.... Hope this happens as well.

ArkOne77 commented on Game & Wario:

I've been having a great time with this game! I think this is the perfect game to make free to play or release additional DLC with extra levels, prizes and mini games to keep an already fun experience fresh at all times. Even if they added to the existing single and multiplayer experiences it would give it a little more depth overall. All in all, I'm glad I finally picked it up as I kept hesitating to buy it because of the mixed reviews.

I wouldn't mind seeing a little game play footage of these 4 new games. Does anyone have a link or two showing them?

Actually....I went hunting on Youtube......here is a link if you want to see what these games look like:

ArkOne77 commented on Review: Kokuga (3DS eShop):

I really hope Canada gets this game. It's awesome. If you like sh'mups (especially) Ikaruga then you will like this game! It plays different than Ikaruga but you can tell it was developed by the same person based on quality gameplay. Quite challenging and the soundtrack is great.

ArkOne77 commented on Activision - "We Want to See Nintendo be Succe...:

"We scrutinize opportunities very carefully, and when we go into them we go big. And I think that's been part of the formula for our success."
...........Yeah Activision, Um about that......Walking Dead Survival Instinct, Black Ops 2 With No DLC.....should I keep going?

If it isn't a game with a diabolical micro transaction scheme in place or something they can't port over lazily on a pre existing game engine from the other consoles.....it most likely will not make it over to the Wii U.
