Daxdiv commented on Video: Nintendo Kindly Reminds Us That amiibo ...:

Little surprise they didn't show off Chibi-Robo or the Yarn Yoshi amiibo. Don't get me wrong, I understand that while the latest Chibi-Robo game is a pretty mixed bag, it's still something unique and the bundle version of the game is plentiful from what I can see, so why not try to sell that off? Instead they just showed off a couple of Smash Bros (Just Link and Pikachu, but according to the Nintendo briefing, Link is apparently the best selling amiibo here in the US.), the AC figures and the cards, the Splatoon (They didn't even show off the game or what they can unlock tho) the Super Mario series and the 8-Bit Mario.

I love amiibo, no doubt about it. I will say that stock has been getting better. Toys R Us, Best Buy and Game Stops around me do have full shelves of figures and restocks of some of the rarer characters are easier to come by. Target and Walmart, not so much really. They do feel lacking compared to those 3. It's nothing like it was before when amiibomania started. The only recent amiibo that I know sold out quickly was Mega Yarn Yoshi, but that's because of limited stock of MYY.



Daxdiv commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Release Date Quirks in N...:

@whodatninja I think they used to do that, but ever since the Mario Party 8 incident happen, I think that's when I noticed that NoA and NoE decided to have totally different translations. I think before that there were minor things between Europe and America's translation/localization, IE making sure that words are spelled the right way in their respective English tongues. However, it does feel like ever since MP8 came out, that's when things changed. Splatoon is probably the main game where I notice how different things were between how NoE and NoA handle translations. DJ Octavio's fight being the prime example. NoE= A faithful translation of the Japanese NoA= Fish and DJ puns galore!

Though I am kinda curious as to why I don't have Paper Jam to look forward to, A part of me can understand why Yo-Kai Watch is taking it's sweet time to enter Europe, all those Yo-Kai puns probably need to be localized into something that works over in the other governing regions as well. I mean, Pokémon did the same thing before Gen VI, and since YW is a new IP in the west, I can see Nintendo taking it's time to pick up steam. Well, at least Super Mystery Dungeon is something I can look forward to this holiday season.



Daxdiv commented on Pokémon Shuffle Brings Major Changes in Versi...:


Home Button exploit was a trick where you would press the Home Button during timed puzzle stages like the Mega Stone competitions and the expert stages. You would use the time it would take for it to pop you to the home screen and back to plan out your move. If you needed more time you could always open up Game Notes and have a clearer look on the bottom screen. Since the goal of the expert stages is to keep the momentum up, it was pretty easy exploit that made easy work of those stages.

Also, kinda glad they fixed some of the bugs in this update as well, like Mewtwo actually appearing in the Mega slot whenever you optimize your team and searching by Mega Stone. That and the glitch on the Timburr stage where sometimes a Pokémon that goes mega left behind their non mega forms. That always irked me whenever I was trying to S rank it.



Daxdiv commented on This 3DS Carry Case Has A StreetPass Window, B...:

I only get tags whenever I bother myself to go to Nintendo Zones. Luckily there are a lot around me like McDonalds, Home Depot, Barnes and Noble, Burger King, etc. I know they're from NZ because first you normally get 6 tags, then when you visit another NZ, you get like 3 more tags to make 9. Or at least for the Plaza.

The only time I remember getting a lot of tags was when i visited Disney World. That place was like a gold mine for tags. Still the protective case is pretty neat.



Daxdiv commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (WiiWare):

I actually do agree with the review for this. Even one of my complaints for it was how pixelated the graphics looked, and this is coming from someone that plays his Wii console on an SD TV. That and the lack of Wii Controls as well. I was also disappointed with that as well, but when I did the finger wave, it worked fine with me with the two cases I have played. As for the educational bit, it kind of is in the regards that Ace Attorney Series is a satire on the Japanese court system.
