DreamOn commented on Amazon Confirms US amiibo Pre-Order Times for ...:

If I go into the store and the amiibo I want is there then I buy. If not, it's Nintendo's loss for not having product on the shelf. These aren't online exclusive so I'm a buyer if the stores have stock. No stock, no buy, no "hunting" for a product, just not my priority



DreamOn commented on Developer Pleased with Sales of Retro City Ram...:

I'm going to break away from my usual humble self and say that I proudly look forward to supporting the games that get me excited at full price. Sale prices don't reflect my appreciation for a well made game in this day and age



DreamOn commented on Pearl White Is The Latest New Nintendo 3DS XL ...:

If America gets this I'll consider unwisely trading in my red New 3DS. I can't believe in all the years we've seen 3DS models come and go on this continent this generation, we've not had a plain white 3DS. Dang you, Reggie. Dang you!



DreamOn commented on Feature: Yoshi's Woolly World, Like Kirby's Ep...:

It's too bad it feels like nintendo's platforming genre these days really has to convince people it's still fun almost with every release. I truly believe many people have expectations that are a bit off. People see the characters pop up in so many other games that when yoshi gets his own platforming title on Wii U, for example, because he was in smash and NSMBU and on 3DS and VC, people are wondering if everything is all the same all the time.



DreamOn commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

Nothing lasts forever. I've had Sega Saturn game discs give me read errors. Optical media is not the best long term solution when you're talking multiple decades.
I'm not put off from the convenience of digital by the limited server life or potentialy limited license of my games. I'll enjoy what I can as long as I can in the manner that appeals most to me without a drop of worry about expiration of this and that.

I'd love for all games to be handled with preservation in mind by companies but that's sadly not a primary business priority. It can be a tertiary priority for some companies and I'm grateful for those few projects that get that support, but by and large the license business is a ticking clock.



DreamOn commented on Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Fails to Chart in Week of...:

Love codename steam. One of my absolute favorite 3DS games. I like the artstyle as its not the anime style you'd expect from the developer which makes it all the more appealing to me. Too bad. I'm glad it got made in the first place though. It will remain a gem for the system to a few of us at least



DreamOn commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:

@aaronsullivan I know just the kind of lapsed Nintendo fans you are talking about. I too know a good number of them and I'd say there is a significant number of them out there that warrants Nintendo's attention. But I'm sure Nintendo shares our frustration that Nintendo continually represents their past gaming days when still much of the thing they are fond of is still being made by Nintendo today. Nintendo is in a tough spot getting its fans of old back, the ones you and I know. I don't think they will ever do it with a traditional dedicated home console.



DreamOn commented on Review: Mega Man & Bass (Wii U eShop / Game Bo...:

I only have the GBA cartridge and this download but it is one of my absolute favorite MM games. The challenge at first was so addicting to me. Once you really master this game in that old school way, it's such a joy to replay again and again.



DreamOn commented on SEGA Records Financial Losses and Aims to Stic...:

Sega is unable to successfully bring back its past. It's a harder task to them than getting success from new IP, which is backwards to the rest of the entertainment industry. I expect nothing from the Sega company of today. When that company collapses, if ever, only then will I eagerly look to see if it's console glory days creep forth again from the ashes.



DreamOn commented on Koji Igarashi's Castlevania Successor Teased b...:

I can only imagine the castlevania snobbery that will ensue - myself included. Classicvania style like Adventure ReBirth or I don't give a flying darn. Oh, Igavania gushing over SotN? Already feeling the don't give a darn coming on :]



DreamOn commented on Mega Man & Bass Kickstarts "Mega May" On Wii U...:

Mega Man and Bass is a joy to play. It's only hard until you know when and where to use mega mans boss power ups then it becomes easier as u commit that to memory. I feel like it's the one of the very few mega man games I don't just blow through the levels only using the robot master powers at the boss screen and for that I love it!
