Agreed, Nintendo discounts are really blah, I've never seen a single Nintendo sale that makes me buy a game because the deal was too good to pass, on PSN I have bought more games that I have time to play just because the deals are so good (and yes Steam deals are even better)



DualWielding commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I really can't think of a justification for that tiny right analog, looks ridculous and its a bit unfair for 3DS owners that some games won't be playable unless you upgrade that goes against the nature of consoles



DualWielding commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

Finally!!! Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright.... the sad thing is that that's one of two games that sold me on the 3DS (the other being KH3D) but after all this wait the excitement has kinda waned... still buying and downloading right away thought, just to help ensure the localization of future AA installments



DualWielding commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

I think the reason the 3DS is popular with women is because the thing is not pocket friendly but fits perfectly in a purse.. I know is a bit sexist and that not all women carry purses but that's my experience, I only use my 3DS at home but all women I know who own one carry it everywhere in their purses even if they don't use it



DualWielding commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I don't have a Wii U and dont' care about Mario Kart but fair is fair, the 11.99 pack is one of the best value for money I've seen in a DLC offering from any company and a huge step up from the rip offs Nintendo tried to pull off with Fire Emblem and NSMB2



DualWielding commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

The prices are high but the main problem is that Nintendo never has good sales, I wouldn't mind if they initially offer a NES game at $5.00 to milk the hardcore if I knew I'll be able to pick it up for $0.99 a few months later, but no, Nintendo think $3.89 for NES game its sale



DualWielding commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:


PS3 has it and Vita has it and subscriptions are not mandatory for those systems... not to mention, Google, Apple, Steam, Amazon and about every single trader of digital goods other than Nintendo... No Nintendo has no excuse for their tying games to hardware practice



DualWielding commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

@IxC Although I generally agree, I think there are some hardcore NIntendo fans who had only Wii, got Wii U got introduced to franchises such as Batman, Assasins Creed and Mass Effect and now want to get a PS4 to play the next installments on those franchises



DualWielding commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

@Zach777 to be fair... that's what cross-buy is by definition and what Sony refers to as cross buy..... buy one game get a second version for another platform free.... the other thing Sony has with PSOne and PSP games is not called cross buy because you only buy one game that is playable in multiple platforms



DualWielding commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:


Its not so clear cut.... You don't normally carry all your physical games with you but you do carry the 3DS with all the digital games... plus its not only the issue of stolen, its also the issue of the system simply not working because you dropped it or something... As I explain if you are in the U.S its easy to say just send the system to Nintendo, their customer support is so nice ect..... but what about those of us in other countries, importers and people who move around.... you can blame us from buying games from the eshop when the eshop does not officially support our countries but we just want to access games at a reasonable price or games that would not be accessible to us at all since they are digital only.... the reality is that if something happens to my PS3 and Vita no matter where am I in the world I know I can buy as new one and redownload my games.... in the case of Nintendo I don't know..... and that for me is unnaceptable I really don't get why they can't simply provide the same service as any other digital store



DualWielding commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

However, you still lost the game forever if your 3DS gets stolen which is a bigger problem than whether games are cross buy.... I don't get why people seem to worry more about cross buy than the ability to retrieve games which is more important



DualWielding commented on Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the...:

the success of this game was on its pricing by being $1.99 from the start it made a name for itself as the best value on 3DS, almost every review was perfect because you really could not ask for more for $1.99 other games with similar lenght and scope try to start at something like $5.00 and then reviews complain about how the game was short ect... then they try to drop the price or make sales but then they don't sell as well because they don't have so many reviews praising them



DualWielding commented on Nintendo Looking To Grow Wii U Audience To Tem...:

What's worst Sony being honest and saying only indies are coming to Vita or Nintendo blatantly lying when they have to know they will never get third party support in the Wii U..... I honestly don't know which of the two is wrost
