Asaki commented on Say Hello To What Could Be The Most Obscure Pi...:
@Yorumi Reminds me of a certain amiibo practice...
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the ZIF connector on the NES; or R and L buttons on GBA/DS/3DS; or the disk drive on the FDS; or, most of all, the joystick on the N64. Maybe not international, but all very prone to failure.
Asaki commented on Video: Take A Drip Down Memory Lane With Game ...:
@PlywoodStick "Jerry" also makes sense though, since that's his name. Kind of a double entendre, in an Engrish way.
@ALinkttPresent Ditto here. We got the game used a long time ago, ex-rental, and I always kind of liked it, even though it's really weird. The Japanese to English translation by Chris Covell is a lot cooler, and makes a whole lot more sense.
Asaki commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Launches on the ...:
Cool! Too bad NOA won't release a N3DS for me to play it on
Asaki commented on Terraria Rating for North America Brings Its W...:
I'd prefer it on the 3DS, I think.
Asaki commented on Eight SEGA 3D Classics Get Discounts in North ...:
@khaosklub I was told that Ecco is the regular Genesis version, with no CD updates.
Asaki commented on Review: EarthBound Beginnings (Wii U eShop / NES):
@ricklongo That is mind-blowing.
@EarthboundBenjy IIRC, the version of Mother in the GBA collection is also based on the unreleased US prototype, which unfortunately means it is censored (but I might be remembering wrong, it's been a while).See you later, $7. I never thought this would actually get released, maybe enough people will "wallet vote" to get Mother 3 over here too, especially since they've already got GBA on the VC.
Asaki commented on 3DS Hits 15 Million Sales Landmark in the US:
Let's celebrate by releasing a bunch of faceplates and the New 3DS to go with them )))
Asaki commented on Rumour: TT Games Currently Working On Minecraf...:
Isn't that what that LEGO MMO was supposed to be like? I don't even know if that game ever came out or not, that was a long time ago.
@Kirk An actual LEGOcraft game would have to end up being a lot more limited than Minecraft, though, since the pieces come in so many different shapes and sizes Also, assuming they don't go with the retro visual aesthetic (or at least something akin to Lego Star Wars DS), the polycount would be pretty huge.
Asaki commented on Nintendo Wanted To Make Its Humble Bundle A Gl...:
America gets a Humble Bundle, the rest of the world gets the New Nintendo 3DS...somehow I think you guys are still winning, but okay.
Asaki commented on A Totally Complete Version Of Star Fox 2 Reall...:
I wonder what the "missing elements" are. The patched prototype feels pretty finished to me, aside from the missing multiplayer mode (which didn't seem all that exciting anyway).A VC release would be a no-brainer...Recca got released to VC, DK Pie Factory had a limited release...I'm sure Nintendo could dig up lots of other gems, like Sim City NES.While I'm on the topic of unreleased Argonaut games, would also be awesome to see an English release of X some day. I've always wanted to try it, but the language barrier is a little too steep for me.
Asaki commented on Unofficial Metroid Prequel Uses The Original N...:
I've never heard of Nintendo CADing a ROM hack before, I don't know why they'd start with this one.Square, on the other hand...
Asaki commented on Square Enix Announces Dragon Quest VIII For Th...:
Wake me up when the fan translation comes out =| Enix has given up on America again and we all know it =(
Asaki commented on Review: Cube Creator 3D (3DS eShop):
7/10 sounds pretty high. I don't think I could give the demo even a 1/10, it was awful.
Asaki commented on Video: Go Beyond The Beards With This Behind T...:
This game looks like it would fit perfectly on the Sega CD or the 3DO @_@They're trying to get as wide a range of music as they can into the game...isn't that what caused sales of GH to plummet after 5 and Band Hero?
Asaki commented on Reminder: New StreetPass DLC Games Offer a 'Th...:
@TerrapinJess Yeah, at first I tried playing Find Mii also (the other games weren't out until the next year), but quickly realized that level 1 heroes aren't going to get you very far, no matter how many you have, and I just focused on puzzle pieces. The next year I did the same, but if passes were slow (like when we were in an event room for a while), I'd go through some of the other games.
On a separate note, I really, really like the new game vault. Warrior's Way went in there immediately; I got 100% on that one and see no reason to beat it a third time.
@TerrapinJess Yeah, it's kind of like that. My friends and I go to a local "everything Japan" convention every year, and your queue fills up almost instantly. You can stand in one spot outside and just constantly empty it out for a while. That's how we got the "100 StreetPass tags in one day" accomplishment (and numerous others), and it's where we fill up on pink puzzle pieces for the year.
Asaki commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:
@TripleGamer3K No thanks. I already have an old 3DS XL, and I don't like it. The screens are just too big, and the console itself is too heavy and bulky.
I thought about getting this, but it's a moot point since NOA hasn't released the New 3DS yet, and still no sign that they plan to...Thought about trying to import one and region unlock it, but knowing my luck, NOA would release it in the US immediately afterwards >_<
Asaki commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:
@Moshugan The PAL version shouldn't be slower, RARE is a UK company...but I know they did put a framerate cap on the game (much like Mario 64 and OoT), maybe that has something to do with it?
Asaki commented on Monster Tale on Its Way to the 3DS eShop in a ...:
@Kaze_Memaryu Don't let the "Majesco" badge fool you, not everything they publish on handhelds is shovelware.
I already have the DS game, don't know if I'd want to double dip. It's pretty fun for a Metroid clone, but not quite as meaty as the real thing. I didn't get super far yet, but I'm not sure how they can cut out MORE backtracking, it doesn't have very much to begin with (which I see as a flaw for this genre of game).The original game came out pretty late in the DS's life, and the box art looked like some generic shovelware title. Hopefully they make a lot more sales on the eShop, it deserves it.
Asaki commented on Nintendo Boss Satoru Iwata Warns Not To Hold Y...:
I wonder what part of the information was incorrect...
Asaki commented on New Nintendo 3DS Exploit Makes Japanese System...:
@TingLz If they released a new Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan game for the 3DS, I would probably buy a flash cart immediately.
Asaki commented on Review: Zombie Incident (3DS eShop):
@Pahvi Only certain monsters give health; some monsters give health and XP. It seems to be the same monsters every time, not random drops.
Now we just need La-Mulana.
Asaki commented on Kickstarter Project Aims to Fund a Vinyl Album...:
That's pretty cool, it's a really great album.
Asaki commented on 3D Out Run Developers Talk Over Bringing Class...:
Of course I'm getting it, this is the Sega 3D Classic I've been waiting for.It seemed to me like the Dreamcast port of the game ran at 60 FPS? Maybe I'm wrong, I haven't played it in a while.
Asaki commented on Nintendo of America Teams Up With Best Buy For...:
Reggie knows full well that I'm not on the fence, it's more like a bench, waiting for a bus to come...even though I've been told that my bus isn't coming to America.
Asaki commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:
I'm surprised 4 is even coming out, I thought everyone had given up on music games when RB3 and GH6 failed to make a splash.
Asaki commented on Fans Are Translating Dragon Quest VII On 3DS B...:
Would be neat if they could figure out a way to patch the actual cart (and region un-lock it) in real-time using a browser exploit. People might need to start snatching up copies while they're still selling for only two digits.
Asaki commented on Nintendo of America Suggests That Fans Hoping ...:
Maybe if it was a Ness Amiibo...but even then, I'd still have to consider if I really wanted to set foot inside of a Wal*Mart.
Asaki commented on Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria Advent...:
Looks more like Dragon Quest than Final Fantasy.@JWFinnegan But think of how perfect it will be when all the media outlets can have headlines like "Quite Literally the Final Fantasy!"

@NbaJunkie ...you actually might be onto something there, but I hope you're wrong.

I always buy boxes with carts inside, when the option presents itself.
Asaki commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:
@accc "I'm buying a New Nintendo 3DS (not XL) just as soon as Nintendo decides to release it in the US" <-- what this guy said
Asaki commented on Twitch Plays Pokémon Celebrates Anniversary ...:
@Fandabidozi Twitch has other things too???
Asaki commented on 3DS Flashcard Users Playing ROMs Online Report...:
@Monado_III Before the 3DS came out, Nintendo was promising that consoles would be "bricked". Obviously, this turned out to be an empty threat, but I don't see why they couldn't get serious about it if they wanted to.
Asaki commented on New 3DS HOME Themes Confirmed for Majora's Mas...:
"This is a week in which Nintendo wants a lot of your money" unless you live in America and wanted a New 3DS but not the XL
Asaki commented on Review: Undead Storm Nightmare (3DS eShop):
8 seems pretty high, the demo was very boring. You could walk right past most monsters...which made smashing crates pointless, since you don't need ammo or health...which makes the overall game...pointless. Maybe it gets better after the extremely short first level?
Asaki commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:
I'm not sure if I do NEED it, I already own Prime 3, and I didn't like Prime 2...so it would be $10 to play Prime 1 with motion controls instead of GC pad...
Asaki commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):
Can't be as boring as the Cube Creator demo. Yuck.
Asaki commented on Rumour: Terraria is Making Its Way to Wii U an...:
I don't ever play this on the PC, but I think if it were on the 3DS, I would have to. It was fun on the 360 with split-screen, but touch screen controls would make it a lot better.
Asaki commented on Nintendo's NES Predecessor, Unveiled at CES 31...:
@antonvaltaz The story is that Nintendo approached Atari to distribute the NES Stateside, but Atari declined, due to the market crash at the time.
The AVS looks an awful lot like some of the cancelled Atari prototypes at the time, like the 3200.
Asaki commented on Battleminer Screens Show Some Familiar Block B...:
Toy Stunt Bike was pretty awful (though I did get many laughs from the glitches), so I can't imagine this will be much better, especially when there's much more room for error.
