Fingeldor commented on Apple Just Announced Its Own Wii, Almost A Dec...:

Lots of Apple hate here. I for one will be getting the new Apple TV. I love the Siri integration. The gaming is a footnote to me for the device but I have a second generation Apple TV now and use it almost every day. I'll probably use some of the apps since the App Store does have a good selection of items. It will be interesting to see what develops come up with. It could be a competitive device in gaming. I remember when Apple opened iPhone to developers, they tried very hard to stay out of the gaming space but developers brought them into it.



Fingeldor commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

When I think back on the hundreds of hours I've poured into New Leaf, I'm reminded of the changing seasons, the holidays, my neighbors moving in and out and the island. I keep reading about the design themes in ACHHD but are these other New Leaf elements still in the game? It seems like a watered down Animal Crossing with a heavy focus on design. Will it even have the same charm and annual activities and changing seasons we've grown to love about this game? I'm just curious as I haven't quite made my mind up about this one.



Fingeldor commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

Unfortunately, Nintendo did not send me my codes. I met all of the qualifications and even called them this morning. The support rep said he didn't understand why I didn't get it as he agreed, I met the qualifications being a Platinum member last year and having been opted-in for promotional e-mails. Luckily, my friend got an e-mail and I got the code anyway. Still, I would have liked to receive the extra codes to share them with others on here. Perhaps in a couple of days, if I hear back from Nintendo, I'll do just that.



Fingeldor commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:

@nf_2 I tried e-mailing Nintendo through their Support page. I guess now it's wait and see. I was definitely Platinum last year and I've been signed up for their e-mails the entire time, so, not sure why certain people aren't getting them.



Fingeldor commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

@El_Scorpio Took the words right out of my mouth. I don't have the money to upgrade to new hardware but I'd love to own Xenoblade. My family has bought 3 of these handhelds. It definitely feels like current owners are getting the shaft on this one. Why should I give Nintendo more money at this point? I would be reluctant to buy any new hardware unless it's closer to the end of it's cycle now since a new one can come along mid-generation with some exclusives I can't afford to buy. Give me a break, Nintendo. This is definitely a huge disappointment for me.



Fingeldor commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

It's all a little... underwhelming, I think. I guess I'll need to see more to be convinced of the upgrade. I have a 3DS XL and I don't see much reason to get one of these. It seems like a more polished version of what I already have without any 'must-have' features.

Also, I like the stylus where it is now. The new placement feels less natural.

Fingeldor commented on Satoru Iwata States That Nintendo Should "Aban...:

I'm excited to see what Nintendo can do. I feel fortunate to be a Nintendo fan who owns a 3DS and Wii U right now - both are great systems! In fact, I think the 3DS is the best console (handheld or otherwise) I've ever owned. I'm proud to back the underdog and don't have much interest in murder simulators on the other consoles. Good luck, Nintendo! =)



Fingeldor commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata "Has Earned Th...:

Nobody hits a home run every single time. Failure is definitely part of the game and I admire Iwata for hanging tough to try and improve the company. Any coward can tuck tail and run away when the chips are down. Nintendo has always been in it for the long haul and the Wii U is an opportunity to improve and grow. Any mature, sane person knows this already. This guy is spelling it out succinctly.



Fingeldor commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

I would love to see a handheld system I can plug into my television. I think that's a fabulous idea. Hardware design is certainly at a point where there shouldn't be any reason this couldn't be done and it offers product flexibility and value. Personally, I believe the virtual games should be shared across platforms right now through your Nintendo account. I really want to play Earthbound on my 3DS, for example.



Fingeldor commented on Former Sony Developer Feels The Wii U "Won't S...:

I love how Mario was outsold by the VERY lackluster Knack (55/100 Metacritic). At this point, anyone crying, 'it's about the games' is lost in their own delusion of reality. Mario should outsell Knack but those new Playstation owners need a game for that shiny new turd they own. If Wii U isn't around a year from now as this clear fortune teller has predicted, then you can all kiss quality gaming goodbye. What these people are proving is that you can shovel out crap ALL DAY LONG and the consumer will continue to buy. So there's no reason to take time and develop quality content. Look at Angry Birds. Gaming is no longer about quality experiences, it is about always having new content, even if it's not particularly good. If it's NEW and it looks shiny, apparently, people will buy. Everyone crying about Nintendo, you're gonna be crying a LOT harder if they go belly up later on and all you're left with is Call of Duty games and horrible mobile gaming.



Fingeldor commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Resilience Against W...:

Nintendo are optimists who've never strayed from making high quality entertainment products. They need to tweak their launches better in the future but I think the Wii U will find its footing next year. There are a LOT of gamers out there on the fence about getting a Wii U. Give them a few more solid titles and they'll pick it up because they can't resist missing those great games.



Fingeldor commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

  • Zelda Skyward Sword
  • Professor Layton & The Diabolical Box
  • Rayman Legends
  • Pokemon X (or Y)
  • Animal Crossing New Leaf

Really want to play Wind Waker but need to finish Skyward Sword and a bunch of other games first. There's too many now!!!!



Fingeldor commented on EA Executive: Shigeru Miyamoto is 'Falling Dow...:

Miyamoto will be remembered for years to come for his mark and legacy in gaming. This guy and (perhaps to some extent) EA will not. It's popular to criticize Nintendo these days and he's getting on the bandwagon to say, 'hey, me too.'

Also, I'd like to add that comparing him to a 'dead guy from Cupertino' is probably not a necessary remark. It's not classy or professional - it's just disrespectful.



Fingeldor commented on Feature: Why Zelda: Wind Waker HD Is The Perfe...:

This is awesome! I'm really thankful Nintendo is keeping these games alive. My daughter is in love with Mario and Kirby. In a couple years, she'll be ready to tackle Zelda. I try to imagine if there were only Xbox and Playstation consoles and I know our family would have limited video game options.
