What I think of when I see trine on sale now:
"DFS Sale Now on! Hurry! Ends soon!"
That poopsiedoodle DFS sale just keeps on going, lol

I'm not really interested in anything this week. I got Pullblocks World for the discounted price yesterday, but that's it.

Findonovan95 commented on 3DS System Update 8.1.0-18 is Now Live:

Oh man; gotta love that stability. I prefer stability over new and exciting features(sarcasm).

Don't get me wrong; I do coding so I know how important stability is, I just want to see some cool new stuff added. :(

Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

Man, I love that showdown. Lol! Let it be known that the hype for Zelda U is real! XD

It's weird you know; I've never really gotten excited for a PC/Xbox/Playstation game. Only Nintendo seems to be able to lift my hype levels.

Findonovan95 commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

This is something that I'm not sure how to feel about. I guess it's cool? Mobile games - something I never play. Don't get me wrong; I've downloaded and tried tons of mobile games over the years, but I have yet to get one that truly captures my attention and brings me away from my home/handheld consoles.

Still, I'll put my faith into them and hope that they produce something as quality as Donkey Kong 64 or Banjo-Kazooie/tooie. I never was a fan of Donkey Kong Country if I'm being honest; I'm not sure why.

Findonovan95 commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

With all this moderation and lack of freedom it's hard to use Miiverse. Every time I'm thinking of posting something, I think..."Hm...maybe I shouldn't include the word 'poopsiedoodle', I could get banned." or something similar to that; you get the point.

As someone else pointed out, there are parental options for a reason; it's unfair to the rest of the community for this functionality to be banned because parents aren't using the provided functionality and then are complaining.

"But someone posted a picture of their privates!" THEN BAN THAT PERSON! Don't ruin the experience for everyone just because of one/a few bad apples Nintendo.

Findonovan95 commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

@ToxieDogg wow, I never thought about that. That would be a shame.

On another note; you mentioning internet from a young age made me laugh. I figure you were talking about a younger age group than me but I'm 19 and I didn't have internet access until about 2007 or so, lol

It's strange to think about how easy it all is to access, even to me who is supposed to be the one leading us into the next generation or whatever my lecturer says. XD

Findonovan95 commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I guess I wasn't into the new generation stuff at the time. I remember my first game being Pokémon Silver; well if you don't count me playing my sisters version of Pokémon Crystal.

My mom said it was because she was afraid of me wrecking the more modern stuff. Hahaha, she knew the old gameboy and nes were built to last. XD

I've vowed that if I ever have a kid, they're going to play through all the generations I did to get to the modern games, lol I'd want them to have an appreciation for the past before enjoying the present, and looking to the future.

Man, I love this game. It's a really good time-waster. I've pumped a good few hours into it now. I think it's their reactions/expressions that make me laugh so hard. Amazing.

@DestinyMan you can you change the pronunciation of the names by using the little audio icon. Just spell the name normally, then click that icon and spell it how you want it to be pronounced. Works great for me.

Findonovan95 commented on Shigeru Miyamoto States There Are "A Few" Zeld...:

What the poopsiedoodle is everyone talking about "zelda is becoming cod/mario"? No it's not, lol How do you even get to these really over-dramatic conclusions?

Never the less; I look forward to a new game in the series for the 3DS, and the Wii U zelda reveal brought tears to my eyes, lol Looks amazing. Hyrule Warriors being a spin-off I didn't think much of it but the more I see of it, the more I begin to like the look of it.

That's two main games, one for each console and a spin-off. They're coming out sometime within the next year/few years; I honestly don't think that's a lot. They also seem to be putting more thought and effort into these games than ever before with the numerous statements about how they want to revolutionize the series, etc. My body is ready.

Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: Keeping It Simple Helped Ninten...:

I'll be honest and say that I wasn't that impressed by Splatoon and to an extent, I'm still not that impressed. However, I do see how it could become a great game. It was unexpected and I presume that as I see more of it I'll begin to like it more. (I didn't watch all the tree house stuff btw)

On another note; the peek we got of Zelda U looked absolutely amazing and I am seriously hyped for it and pretty much every other game they announced, lol

Findonovan95 commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

Infrared =/= camera. Case closed. Judge is a failure. Appeal successful. End of story. Phillips cries, Nintendo laughs victoriously.

At least that's how I foretold it all happening. I mean I can use candles with the wii remote to point instead of a sensor bar (actually had to do this for a while, lol). Ah well.

Findonovan95 commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

It worries me to see games with dates like for instance "Holiday 2014" because there's such a high chance of them being delayed. But man, this list is epic. I can't wait for hyrule warriors and pokemon. Captain Toad and Smash Bros as well. It's going to be a good year I think and it will continue next year as well. :D

Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: It's Not Too Late for Nintendo ...:

Back when the Wii U first came out I would have loved for it to come to the console. But I agree that I wouldn't buy it because I have a gaming pc and minecraft which would always outshine it.

By the way; I'm not sure if it's a glitch or something but I looked at the poll results for 3DS and they only added up to 99%. :P

Findonovan95 commented on Ubisoft Makes Little Mention of Nintendo in Pl...:

Alright look. If you want sales you have to take risks. Yes, the Wii U isn't selling well right now and yes they're not selling many of their games on the console. However, what they fail to realize is that the games they are releasing are half-donkeyed ports with no extra effort made on their part. They delay, leave bugs, release after other platforms; it's like they literally don't give a doggieoopsiepoopiepoodle, like they don't want the sales.

What they need to do is risk making just one good game focussed on the Wii U and using its unique features and make sure that it runs well, it's out before the other console versions and that it's sold at a decent price-point. No more of this herp derp £60 for a new game doggieoopsiepoopiepoodle; £40 is what we used to pay and I'm not paying more than that anymore. I will buy the game on the PC for £40 if I have the opportunity because the pricing is bulldoggieoopsiepoopiepoodle on the Wii U.

If they can do all that and cater to the fans they will start to sell not only copies of their game but systems as well; that is how the system works. You can' just throw a turd at the fans and tell them it's worth buying the console for. Just take a damn risk. The companies used to take risks. How do you think indie games do so well? Because they take risks, make good games that people want, sell at great price-points that people can actually afford and try to use a consoles features.

--- Alright, sorry for the rant but I just felt I should add my opinion of why they're not doing well on the Wii U, whether it's wrong or right.

You can share your opinion, but we prefer you not use profanity in it -Lz

Findonovan95 commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

To be honest Gold & Silver were my favorites but Ruby & Sapphire were good too. Does anyone else think this was thrown together after the investors briefing? I think it's just the lack of any actual game footage that made me think that though. Still; I'm definitely aboard the hype train on this one! :D

Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

@shad0w-7 This. A million times this, lol Seriously; I'm so sick of sites showing us this crap. If I wanted to know about their financial forecast I would go somewhere else to find it. But I don't; I'm here to see the games and reviews, etc.


On another note though; I'm really hyped for Watchdogs, looks pretty awesome. :D

Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

I only know one person, ONE person among my friends with a Wii U. People ask me why I bought it because they think it's crap and has no games. To be honest I haven't played it that much but it's pretty fun when I do. The 3DS on the other hand is pretty popular. I want to buy more games for my consoles but I tend to be pretty skint/broke being a student and all.

Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

Where I live in Northern Ireland most kids will call you a jerk if you like Nintendo because apparently only ps/xbox are cool. I'm in uni though and it seems like most people wise up and start learning to enjoy other games like smash and mario, lol Some of my friends even like Pokémon which is pretty rare in my experience.

I actually have an 8 year old cousin that doesn't play anything but shooters and Minecraft. He doesn't even have an interest in Nintendo. Damn shame. I just don't understand it.

Epic. I remember going into GAME a day before the launch and them asking me if I wanted to pre-order the 3DS. I was laughing and said "Nah, I've already got it at home.". They looked so angry, good times.

Findonovan95 commented on Little Inferno Has Sold A Million But Gamers D...:

I got the message; I just don't care. I know there's a big world out there, but to be honest I'm happy with a smaller more remote world of my own creation right here. I'm completely happy with what I do on a daily basis and maybe someday that'll change but for now I'm just gonna keep on chillin. :)

Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I saved up £250 to get my Wii U in the UK. I was happy with the price of the system. I've had it since the launch date and I've really enjoyed it and I think it's had some games made great use of the Gamepad. Btw, £250 is approximately $400. I paid a fair amount of money because I knew it was something I would enjoy.

Waiting for it to go to $199 (£120)...I just don't even know how to comprehend that...I just can't even...I just don't even know anymore...
