Farpun commented on Nintendo Australia Offering Super Smash Bros. ...:

At the start of the week I decided I will eventually buy a new 3ds to replace my old XL and to go alongside my Majoras Mask n3DS XL so I bought a couple of cover plates and pondered if they would ever bring something exclusive out for the standard n3DS...I think Nintendo can read my thoughts...

If this doesn't make it to the WiiU stretch goal it's a damn shame as the Nintendo community are the most passionate and excited about the reimagining of the castlevania series.
I wish Nintendo would release their innovative and creative hardware with higher specs to get more third party support.

@BLPs I think the poll was skewed towards Thomas' argument and not very open to other arguments especially in the 'I have no idea option'.
I personally would like to see the same eshop purchasing format with a complete library of previous first/second party games and more third party.
Also an account based system that is accessible on all future Nintendo systems be it handheld or home console.

@Sakura honestly each to his own I prefer the xl as I have large hands but that might not suit you. I would love to get a stardard n3ds because 3ds games aren't so stretched out and the image is denser but cant justify getting one. There's pros and cons for both sizes. With the XL I always use skins theyre a great way to customise your 3ds with no residue, it keeps them free from scratches aswell.

@Sakura I chose the XL model for retro gaming. I think the XL is better suited as when you hold select when booting up VC gameboy games it's the original screen ratio whereas on the smaller model it's not 1:1 it's actually smaller than a real gameboy. It's the same for DS cartridges.

Do the Wii VC games have save states? Like all other VC games? Also there should be the option to select multiple answers on the poll as I'm downloading more than one game.

@zool I bought both WiiU and 3DS versions and thought I would prefer WiiU but surprisingly it turns out that the 3D effect is done really well I usually turn 3D off on most games but I always have it on for Shovel Knight. I'm playing on an XL so screens are a good size they're definitely big enough for Shovel Knight. So yes Shovel knight on 3DSXL is worth it can't say the same for the old 3DS or 2DS, new 3DS might be big enough too.

@Kaze_Memaryu I found it easy until I started smashing the checkpoints to earn more money and then when I died at the end of the level I was respawned at the very start.
In short I love how you can make this game harder if you choose. It's very easy if you use all checkpoints.

Thankyou Nintendolife for posting on Australian news and release dates it's great to have region specific information and support. I'm surprised that there is so much support from this site as Australia is usually left out. Even kotaku aus has less region specific news. The Nintendolife team put in alot of great work and deserve some praise every now and again.

Farpun commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edit...:

I'm a big batman fan and metroid fan and I can confidently say this game is bad. I bought it near release and traded it in after giving it a good few hours of play. I badly wanted to like it but just couldn't. The fighting mechanics are a watered down and unresponsive version of the console iterations. The graphics are aweful, I'm not one to be picky with graphics but these were so bad that playing this with my 3dsxl on the highest brightness setting and all I could see on the screen was just complete black except for a bright fluro orange line (as I was in detective mode). I rarely post on here but felt like I should let everyone know before they purchase a digital copy of this game and regret it as they are unable to get their money back as the quality of blackgate is sub-par and shouldn't be acceptable for any amount of money.
