Our game prices were recently increased to $75 due to the exchange rate as well. What bothers me isn't the increase in price, but the fact that those increased prices will remain the same even if/when the CAD becomes more on par with the USD.

@Captain_Toad All they've announced is that you will get Mewtwo for free if you buy both 3DS & Wii U versions of the game. So far that is the only way to get him as they have not announced any other form of distribution for the character, and that includes its release as paid DLC.

My husband and I both have Smash for 3DS on each of our own handhelds, but as the primary Nintendo user in my household I'll be purchasing Smash for Wii U via my Nintendo Network ID. As it stands right now my husband's really disappointed as this means that I'll have access to Mewtwo on my 3DS and the Wii U, whereas he'll only be able to access Mewtwo on the Wii U. Not releasing the character as paid DLC clearly has some disadvantages to certain players, so I hope that Nintendo devises a workaround for these types of situations.



Axed84 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

Hmm...I downloaded the Mercedes DLC, and although the system tells me that it's been installed the additional content is nowhere to be seen once I boot up the game. For some reason it's just not downloading the update.

Curiouser and curiouser...

UPDATE: Ignore me. I restarted my system, and now the update is downloading. 100% can't come soon enough!



Axed84 commented on Bravely Default Flutters Gracefully Past The O...:

I played the demo back when it was originally released, and I walked away from that feeling completely dissatisfied. I couldn't wrap my head around the Brave/Default battle mechanic, and I didn't understand how the StreetPass/re-building Norende functionality worked. Overall I just felt like the demo didn't do a great job of explaining the various features of the game.

Fast forward to about a month ago, and for some inexplicable reason I decided to purchase the full game (which I realize doesn't make any sense considering my feelings towards the demo). I'm SO glad that I did, because this game has grabbed my attention like no other RPG has in quite a while. The previous stand-out in my mind was DQ:IX for the DS, and for the first time since then I feel like I'm playing a game that offers the same type of incredibly fun, fully customizable, and high-quality experience as that did. I'm so glad that I ended up picking up this game DESPITE my experience with the demo.



Axed84 commented on Hands On: Photos with Mario and AR Card Fun:

I heard about this last night, but when I searched the eShop it was nowhere to be found. I saw somebody post about having the same issue in an online forum, and (perhaps uncoincidentally) it turned out that we're both from Canada. I'll check the eShop again later today, as it sounds like a neat little app.



Axed84 commented on Club Nintendo Distributing Tomodachi Life Demo...:

I'm going to add my voice to the chorus of people who're saying that they hope they get it because they've achieved Platinum status and have AC:NL registered. I've been a Platinum member every year since 2009, so it'd be nice to get access to something like this as a way to thank me for my loyalty...not that I feel like Nintendo actually owes me anything, ha!



Axed84 commented on Video: New Pokémon X & Y U.S. Trailer Makes i...:

Obviously I'm getting this game either way, but does anybody else find it frustrating that there are no trailers or screenshots in the 3DS eShop that show off the stereoscopic 3D effect? I always play every game with the 3D cranked up to max, and it's such a pet peeve of mine when a game doesn't show off that effect in the eShop. The 3DS is pretty much the only way you can preview a game's stereoscopic visuals, so why not take advantage of that when pre-loading info in to the eShop?



Axed84 commented on South Korea Is Getting Animal Crossing: New Le...:

Ugh, seriously? I don't mind South Korea getting it first, but what I AM starting to mind is how Nintendo refuses to just lock down a release date for NA/Europe, regardless of when that release date will be.



Axed84 commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Its Own Nintendo ...:

Nintendo's official Facebook page states that the broadcast will take a deeper look into some previously announced 3DS and Wii U games, so it doesn't SEEM like any announcements regarding new games will be made. Fingers crossed, though!



Axed84 commented on Feature: Taking Off to the Miiverse:

I absolutely agree with what everybody else has said. While I've always been reluctant to participate in any gaming forums online (mainly because of trolls and/or flame wars), I've been surprised by my own willingness and ability to very easily integrate myself into the Miiverse community. Well done, Nintendo!
