Buy a 3DS!

Male, Australia

I'm a big Nintendo fan from down here in Australia! My name was meant to say 'DarkSplatoonLink' but whatever...

@WaLzgi If challenged Fair Use needs to be proved in court, but I was under the impression that this book was offering critical commentary and such that is under Fair Use in U.S. Copyright Law. Profit has nothing to do with it, people and companies are allowed to profit off Fair Use and regularly do.



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

This year they should just have one big live presentation at E3, with big exciting reveals. They have no need to do both like 2012, since the Direct was just to give new hardware info so the main presentation could be about games. Doing that this year would just give less excitement for games at the main presentation.



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:

I've never been warned or banned ever, and one used it relatively frequently since launch.
Although I support moderation so it doesn't become an abusive Xbox Live sort of place, I think the mods are just slightly too strict. Age-restricted posts are a good idea, maybe also in relation to a game's age rating. It's also ludicrous how you can post screenshots in communities of gory games but not in the Senran Kagura Burst community!



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Senran Kagura Is Bursting Onto European Store ...:

@shaneoh There will be a release in Australia, since they've already had it classified.

@Jowy I don't care about physical that much so if it's eShop only down here I'll just go that way since I'd like to support niche games being released here, especially after the region changing block.



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

Last night I tried to connect to the eShop, but I couldn't, so I turned my Wii U off and it wouldn't turn back on! I had to unplug it and plug it back in, and got a bit of a fright. The eShop still wouldn't work, but Miiverse was fine. Meanwhile both my 3DSes couldn't access Miiverse or the eShop at all. I've been able to get on to Wii U eShop a bit, but I've stopped trying since I don't urgently need to download something and the server hardly needs more traffic!



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Nintendo's Point of Sale Cards Helping to Driv...:

These things are really good because you can just get them at your local Family Mart (like a Japanese 7-11) and other places that don't normally sell games. When I was in Japan I bought one of those eShop AR Cards and a convenience store, but they also had loads of download cards for MH4 and ACNL!



DarkSplatoonLink commented on Weirdness: Hori Creates Strange, Antibacterial...:

@Einherjar Well viruses evolve all the time, so I don't think there'd really be immunities like that. It's mainly because the Japanese take work quite seriously and will still go even if slightly sick. Many people take the train to work/school, which gets really squashy in rush hour, so you often see people wearing them in train stations. In my limited experience, at least.
I live in Australia, and a lot of us take sickies just to watch the cricket! And our trains are never on time.
