I have no doubt the smaller model will come to the U.S. Nintendo isn't gonna leave money on the table especially with faceplates that could be sold although that begs the question...since the XL is the predominant sales leader, why not make faceplates for the console that sell the most?

@potatomage7 Well you're hurting the animal if you're seeing blood but this isn't like an MMO where it spews damage numbers out, it's much more subtle. The monsters will start limping when they're really hurt & that's when you know you're making progress.

I don't think demos do justice to this game. You really have to spend a few hours with the game to get accustomed to the controls & requirements of hunting/gathering to get the whole picture. Just throwing newcomers into random battles with leveled up characters is not the best way to win them over.

If you like questing & grinding, you may really enjoy this but there is a learning curve those first couple of hours but the Miiverse community is a BIG help if you need tips and having that right at the push of a button is a huge bonus.

I always felt like the lack of a second analog & full online service always hurt the portable MH games in the West. I've only played the console versions on PS2, Wii, & Wii U.
However, after playing the demo yesterday & knowing that the C-Stick will solve control issues I have pre-ordered my first portable MH game.

I played Mario Galaxy 2 all night. It just sucks you back in all over again. It really is a brilliant game and I really like not having to boot into a separate mode to play it. I will be buying alot of these Wii games at $9.99!!

Dreamcaster-X commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Code Name, S.T.E.A.M. looks fantastic!! I'm so glad Nintendo is investing into new IP's and to people complaining about no games, do you own any other console? I'm still backlogged on 2014 3DS games because there's just simply not enough time to play all the good games that do come out on all the platforms.

Went hunting for some wave 2 figures tonight. I hit six stores and found tons of wave 1 figures and a Target with 10 Luigi's and a Best Buy with 2 Diddy Kongs & a bunch of Zelda's.
The only wave 2 I'm missing are Captain Falcon & Pit, nowhere to be found.

NOT RUMOUR!! I checked email around midnight last night and thy have cancelled my Pit & Luigi pre-orders. Lucario hasn't been cancelled yet but it's happening to everyone. Even staffers at IGN have had their preorders cancelled. This is getting out of hand and Nintendo needs to release some statement to give clarity on what is going on.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

The vagueness of their marketing team is intentional. Nintendo lit a fire under the consumers ass to not wait and to get their Amiibo's ASAP & it's working. Before all this talk of discontinuation I could walk into a store and grab pretty much any Amiibo I wanted & now it's bare bones at most stores or they have 20 Marios & nothing else. Preorders are also sold out in almost every single upcoming figure in the US. Nintendo knows exactly what it is doing.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Nintendo's New Response: Some amiibo "Likely" ...:

@rjejr I agree with you but their hands could be forced with retailers, hence all the different "exclusives". They probably played hardball with Nintendo to give Amiibo the limited shelf space it has and maybe Nintendo wasn't anticipating some to sell out as fast?? Also their are jerkbags who go out and buy lots of these up at a time & resell them which only hurts us and Nintendo should recognize that and at least keep a decent supply throughout Christmas.

Who knows, it may just be a brilliant Nintendo marketing plan to light another fire under Amiibo sales for this month. Either way, it's frustrating.

@rjejr Well retailer shelf space is limited and they reserve it for their top sellers. Have you seen the shelf space given to Skylanders & Disney Infinity vs Amiibo at stores? Skylanders almost has an entire half aisle. Hopefully if Amiibo is a success during the holidays the retailers will give it a bigger presence.

I ordered a Marth from Toys R Us online on Saturday only to have my relief crushed an hour later when they cancelled my order. Thankfully I was able to snag one on ebay for $24 and it shipped today. I knew there were gonna be some selling out but I didn't think they'd cease production on some just weeks after release.

Physical copy for me on everything I buy unless it's an e-Shop only title of course. I still can't believe they're giving away Bayonetta 1 for free & it's the best version of the game available with no screen tearing, such a deal!!!! 2 of the best action games ever made for $60!!!

I think it still plays well to this day. I recently have been going back to Perfect Dark & Goldeneye. They play so well & they're FUN!!! Why can't compnies make fun FPS's anymore?

Dreamcaster-X commented on Nintendo 64x64: Killer Instinct Gold:

@DRL If all else fails...you can try Meguiar's Scratch-X to clean the contacts with. I know it sounds bizarre but it has worked for me on countless games that I thought were dead. I saw it on a Youtube video a while back & didn't believe it would work but it did. You just use a miniscule amount and slightly rub the contacts, then wipe it off with a clean microfiber. You have to take the cart apart first though so you'd need one of those nifty screwdrivers.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

After forcing myself to complete it on my PS4 I have to say it's one of the biggest gaming disappointments in history for me. The first 2 hours were kind of cool but then it became Assassin's Creed set in a slightly futuristic era.
The main character is about as generic as they come & while the story was interesting at first it quickly became quite monotonous and the gameplay along with it. They just tossed in a bunch of ridiculous & boring side quests to make it seem bigger.
It's not the worst game I've ever played but it's surely nothing to write home about. Luckily I was able to sell it used for $45 online so it was a decent $15 rental I guess.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Video: This is a Video Game:

Aaaaawww, the joy of getting a new game as a kid. There was nothing like it, you didn't have internet back then and magazine reviews usually came out a month after the game was released at best. So most of the time you went in blind and hoped you didn't get a stinker but nothing could replace that feeling when you knew you had found a keeper or a diamond in the rough. I'm looking at you Blaster Master!

Dreamcaster-X commented on Go! Go! Kokopolo Developer Explains Why It's B...:

This has always been my big beef about an all digital future. Once these games are gone from their respective download services, they become nigh impossible to obtain. I'm still collecting old games I never got a chance to play on the old consoles so not being able to do that in the future makes it a bit sad.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

The yellowing of SNES consoles is due to certain batches of consoles having too much bromide in the mfg mix which is a flame retardant put into the plastic. Too much of it mixed with UV exposure over the years causes the yellowing.
You can turn the consoles back to their original color with a process called Retrobright, just Google it. My Super Famicom looks like brand new.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Review: Quake II (Nintendo 64):

The N64 was home to some pretty competent first person shooters back in the day. Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough, Perfect Dark, Doom 64, Turok etc....and for the time they looked & played quite well.
