BenAV commented on Ninja Pig Studios Accused Of Stealing Pixel Ar...:

Just read through all the comments, this has made my day.

Nintendo should take a serious look at what they're letting onto the eShop. Shovelware is one thing, but the crap that @ninjapigstudios is dishing out just completely pathetic and will give the eShop a pretty bad name for itself if they continue to allow it. Why anyone would actually pay money for things like this, I'll never know.

Thanks @PhotonStorm for making this public over Twitter. The more people that are aware of terrible developers, the better. Hopefully it'll help a few people steer clear of their games and bring us one little step closer to Nintendo having no reason to allow it in the first place.

BenAV commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

Not usually interested in ports/remakes so skipping both the 3DS titles.
Excited for Xenoblade X but doubt it can reach the same hights as Xenoblade so keeping my expectations in check for now.
Zelda U looks amazing, that has to get my vote for everything. So excited to see more of it.

BenAV commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Free Demo Confirmed ...:

Waiting for the codes to be sent in Australia, whenever that will happen.
Also just set a second 3DS to Europe, so hopefully I can track down a code for that. :P
Edit: Oooh, got one. Now time to play while I wait for Australian codes.

BenAV commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

I don't think it'd be that bad having Majora's Mask and Monster Hunter released on the same day.
Maybe a bit tricky to come up with the money for both but at least only one of them (Monster Hunter) is a real time sink.

BenAV commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

@BensonUii Yup, no problem. First you'll have to wait and see if you actually have both to choose from in the first place or if it's like Australia where we only have white... That makes the choice a lot easier. :P

@Wilford111 Yeah, while larger screens are nice, I don't like it if they're giving up too much picture quality like the XLs do. All I need is for the screen to be big enough to see comfortably and I'm happy. The smaller model fits my hands and pocket better too so it's nice all-round.

BenAV commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

@BensonUii I felt the same way about the original and XL... Original 3DS was just slightly too small and then the XL was excessively big, so I've definitely found that the standard New 3DS finds the perfect balance between them. I can see it perfectly and comfortably and the picture still looks nice and crisp.

We only have the white standard 3DS here so that's the one that I've got... Usually I much prefer black systems but in this case I actually really like the white. The SNES coloured buttons go really well and give it some life and most cover plates look really nice on it (I have the Isabelle ones, they look great). Not sure about how it'll look over time so guess I'll just have to wait and see.
The black one looks pretty nice too though (my friend has a Japanese one), so you can't really go wrong either way.

That is one uuuuugly red. Does America not get the blue one? That's the best looking out of the XL colours so far.

Doesn't really matter in the end though considering the XL pales in comparison with the standard model anyway (surely they have to release that as well, right?).

More details on Wii U games out of those options for me.

Already had my New 3DS since November so don't care about that, don't want Majora's Mask because it's just a remake and don't care much about amiibo.

A new eShop loyalty program would be really cool though.

BenAV commented on Video: Unboxing The New Nintendo 3DS Ambassado...:

The size is perfect in my opinion.
The XL's screens are borderline excessive if anything... standard New 3DS seems to find the perfect balance between the original 3DS and the XL.
So comfy to hold too and looks a lot nicer than the XL (which is very plain, can barely tell the difference between it and a normal XL).

BenAV commented on Video: Unboxing The New Nintendo 3DS Ambassado...:

@Lloyd_Wolven Nope, standard model is only available in white here in Australia.
XL being available in black or blue.

A few of my friends were pretty disappointed at the lack of black (and usually I would be too), but I actually really like the white model this time around anyway... The SNES coloured buttoned suit it really well and most of the current cover plates look really good on it.

BenAV commented on Bravely Default DLC Set to Play a Festive Tune...:

Oh nice.
Not sure if there's any that I want or not, but I'll make sure to go through them all and pick out any I like enough to purchase.
Hope they continue to release more songs because there's still plenty of good stuff.

BenAV commented on Japanese Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Ca...:

@Spoony_Tech Sooo much money though.
I'd maybe consider getting them if I could get the whole lot for like $20 or something... but when the DLC costs more than the actual game itself, that seems a little excessive.
I just listened to them all on Youtube and picked out the ones I liked, which was surprisingly few anyway.

BenAV commented on Japanese Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Ca...:

Might buy one or two.
I've been quite picky with which DLC songs I download in Curtain Call (so far only a few BMS stages, so I can use them in VS mode), because I bought quite a few in the original game and at the end of the day it felt like a waste of money.

BenAV commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:

Most Little Mac players aren't too hard to beat as long as you play well.
It's the Link/Toon Link players that I've constantly been coming up against, spamming projectiles and taking full advantage of the lag, are who I've been finding annoying to play against.

Desire sensor is a thing, I don't care what they say.
Well over 1000 hours in 3 Ultimate and you see it again and again... If someone wants something (it can even be pretty common), they won't be able to get it easily. And to rub it in their faces more, everyone else in the party will start getting that item more than usual.

BenAV commented on Rising Star Games Celebrates Its 10th Annivers...:

Ooooh.
Nothing for me, but I'll have to start recommending Virtue's Last Reward to everyone I know who hasn't played it yet, seems like a pretty good time to pick it up.
It's a hard game to recommend because I feel obliged to add "but make sure you play 999 first" which probably puts people off a bit because it's not so easy to track down here.

BenAV commented on Controversy Arises at U.S. Pokémon Nationals ...:

It was pretty dumb on his part to go to the tournament with something unobtainable legitimately.
Pretty sure someone with his experience knew exactly what he was doing, and I hope he gets punished for it.
I have no issue with people breeding with hacked parents or anything like that, as long as everything about the Pokemon in the end is able to be obtained legitimately.

BenAV commented on Hyrule Warriors Downloadable Costume Sets Feat...:

I definitely won't be paying any extra for additional outfits.
Especially not Twilight Princess Zelda, much prefer the normal Zelda from Hyrule Warriors.

The roster so far is pretty cool.
Already a few characters I really want to play as.

BenAV commented on Two Separate Bayonetta 2 Retail Releases Confi...:

Well that's good news.
I completely lost interest when I found out that the first game was just going to be an eShop download code, but if it's on a disc then I'm now tempted to pick this up.
Shame there's so many games coming out around the same time, not sure if I can afford it at launch.

BenAV commented on E3 2014: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., A Brand New IP...:

I honestly don't understand why everyone wants a Majora's Mask remake so badly... I'm sure most people have played the game already.
Ocarina of Time 3D was great because it filled a bit of the gap when the 3DS had almost no games, but now there's tons of awesome games available so there's not really any need to port/remake old games.

New IPs on the other hand are great news, and this looks pretty cool and interesting.
Can't wait to see them show it off tomorrow.

BenAV commented on 2014 Australian National Pokémon Championship...:

Should be fun.
Hopefully they have a plan for the large numbers, so it doesn't get rushed towards the end like the Melbourne Regionals.
Although I guess that was partly because the venue had another booking so it had to end by a certain time.
