edhe commented on Miiverse Gets a Major Web Redesign, and Introd...:


This is the webpage connecting to an ad server (one of several on loading the page), sending all sorts of details out to determine what ads you receive. Although not unique to Miiverse, it has a noticeable effect on loading times, and for that reason, I'll actually do something I've never considered, and install AdBlocker.

Nintendolife is the same, allthough it connects to facebook and google too (and God knows where they sell that information), but I'll probably add Nintendolife into the exceptions list.

My internet connection is too slow to have it bogged down by all this traffic.

I can't blame Nintendo for this though, as it's something everybody else is doing.



edhe commented on Zero Escape Volume 3 Will Tell a New Tale on 3...:

Excellent news.

I'm sure someone will pick up the publishing duties for Europe. I'll be a bit sad if it ends up download only (I'd like a hard copy to match my 999 & Zero Escape), but it probably wouldn't happen any other way.

Are you perhaps thinking of Former NOA executive Cammie "Why couldn't I have a daughter instead of a son" Dunaway.

But you'll have to tell me about this law prohibiting men from flirting with women (do you mean it is almost passed or had been almost passed?) - I've never heard anything about that.

I don't believe that actually happened.



edhe commented on Nintendo UK Marketing Boss Shelly Pearce Leave...:


Yes! But I don't own those copies any more - I had a clearout a few years back, which I regret.

I've still got all the DVDs they packaged with the magazine, plus a few copies of NGC and NGamer - including the final issue.

I adored that magazine.

If I ever win the lottery, I'd definitely consider buying the lot from N64 #1 (my first was #27 I think - the Hybrid Heaven issue) and a giant cabinet to house them in.

Allthough I wonder if they may find their way online like Super Play did.

EDIT Did a quick search - wallow in those memories:

(Nintendolife did a article about Super Play being archived in such a way, which can be found on the same website)



edhe commented on Nintendo Download: 7th May (Europe):

I'm tempted by Shin Megami Tensei - I've got credit on my account that I could use for that - it might be enough to cover the full cost.

On the other hand, I'm making an effort to beat more games that I buy this year, and by my count, I'm down by two games - a game like this might be an ambitious undertaking.

I'm nearing the end of Bravely Default though (and after a long hiatus), whereby I'll be just one game down by Thursday hopefully.

I guess I might have to concentrate on some shorter games...



edhe commented on Video: Check Out Every Fire Emblem Intro So Fa...:

Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn, and indeed Shadow Dragon are prime canditates for a re-release on the eShop. I'd personally be very interested in picking any of those up, since I've yet to play them.
Unfortunately, they are obscenely overpriced in the second hand market.

Path of Radiance - £119 used on Amazon (£299 new)
Radiant Dawn - £56.95 used on Amazon (£109 new)

I can live without playing the SNES ones though. I can accept that they're never going to be localised.



edhe commented on eShop Games Added To The European Club Nintend...:

It seems I can login, but I still can't access the Club Nintendo section, so all I have is 100 stars. If Nintendo sold tiny pieces of string, I still probably wouldn't be able to afford it.

I tried to access it, but it didn't work. Now I'm trying to return to the original stars.nintendo-europe page, but it won't load up. The website really is a mess. I look forward to it's replacement.



edhe commented on eShop Games Added To The European Club Nintend...:

I haven't been able to log in to Club Nintendo for months. I'm certainly aware of the imminent closure, but I did want to sort out a few things before the switch.

I might be able to scrimp together a few stars for a points card so I could get one last game on the Wii Shop.

However, when I go, it gives me a 406 error, and when I try to input my credentials, nothing happens.



edhe commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

I only read as far as "columnist in the Swedish newspaper..."

Of course they were going to object to it.

At least the Swedes who want to play the game are able to import it from elsewhere. If the pathetic campaign against the last game is anything to go by, it's probably going to do quite well!



edhe commented on Code Name S.T.E.A.M Demo Available Now on the ...:

It's alright, but I found the enemy movement phases quite tedious.

I did have my eye on it, but I'm not too sure now - I'm sure it was streamlined for the demo, but it didn't really appeal to me.

I've only done the first set of maps, but I will try to get the other ones done. The new Fire Emblem is looking much more appealing to me.



edhe commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I was really looking forward to Flipnote, but if there's no way to share them, other than locally, I can't really see the point.

Unless there was some way to share them by grabbing the files from the SD card (which would probably involve 3rd party codecs), I have literally no way of getting access to anyone else's animations to watch. I don't know any great animators with a 3DS who'd be willing to hook 3DSes up, and even then, I'd prefer a wider variety.



edhe commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

I need to spend £30 to reach my next coupon, but I can't decide what to buy. I thought I'd go for Smash Bros., but that would leave me £30 from my next coupon. I considered Wonderful 101, which costs £40, leaving me with 100 points overflow - something that's slightly more tolerable for me.

But I'm not really in any position to splurge out - I picked up several games on Steam during the winter sale, and I don't think I can justify spending £30 to get £5 back. There isn't anything on the store in that price range that I'm desperate to buy anyway.


If I'm correct, you'll have plenty of time to request and redeem the codes - they just stop counting your contributions at the end of the 31st.



edhe commented on Review: Heptrix (Wii U eShop):

They couldn't even use an appealing custom font.

I'm willing to bet this version is inherently flawed because of its use of Heptonimoes. Please tell me it doesn't use all 108 of them!? It must be a nightmare trying to get them to tesselate properly!
