Finntendo commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Feature An "Outsta...:


Same here. I really don't care for the English dubbing, didin¨t use it in XC more than had to (changed to Japanese first thing when it was possible) and same is going to be with this one.

Besides, even I do watch lots of English spoken shows without subtitles, those are still easier to keep up with than spoken language (well there is probably subtitles on/off even with dubbing)



Finntendo commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:


Yeah. It kind of looks so basic but I like the logo on it. (tho I was bit sad when LBW edition came out). It's not too much. And now I was sure I'll get the next Zelda edition, but I am not going to spend 300e (plus postages): GameStops here has reasonable price for it, but nearest is 200km from me so... and I guess you have to visit store to get stuff.

If there is still stock later this year after the buzz is gone, maybe I get it and sell the regular that I am orderning now.

...And then they say Nintendo is dying :D



Finntendo commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:


Well, it's Bergsala that has Ninty under its wings here in Nordic countries and I don't know why they haven't joined CN network. Few years ago in Finland it was AMO that had Nintystuff here and then Bergsala bought them (or something). I think they could create one for the Nordic countries, we already have several online retailers that ship to all to nordic countries (Webhallen, CDON, Discshop).

But our games include those PINs :P

And now amazingly in online stores have bundles that have console+MM physical game and Skull Kid figurine :O

EDIT: But I do understand that somehow stopping this kind of robbery (even there is two sides). eBay banning preorder sales would be one.



Finntendo commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I'd have a change to pre-order MMedition but it's damn 300e!
And one store is giving the figurine :O

But then again, I own now XL - will I be disappointed if I buy regular 3ds? Because I don't want plain colour one (I have XL FE edition)



Finntendo commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:


And then the countries that DON'T HAVe Nintendo Club (like the Nordic Countries) are left out.

I'd never dare to buy preorder from eBay or so. And I blame those who go to buy from them.

I checked some Finnish (and Nordic websites). CDON doesn't take preorders anymore, Verkkokauppa is sold out, VPD and Coolshop has preorder still available - I guess.
The problem is that I don't know how fast they update their stock.

Of course US is more problematic since you seem to have lots of these "only at" thingies going on.

Heck, I ordered LBW special edition from uk, got everything until day when it should have shipped they said they don't have it. Sorry (tho I got the poster :D )

I am mostly just thinking should I go with XL MM edition or just to buy normal 3DS with MM covers :P (have FIre Emblem XL atm)



Finntendo commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

MM edition has the game preinstalled. Who says it is not?

CDON seems to be here the only one who as it available, for wonderful 299.95e price!

Of course that site is known for slapping items there for sale with made up price and then they fix it when they actually know what's the price. Today's Xl seems to cost there from 190e to 200e.

And the basic black model seems to cost 230e



Finntendo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

One thing is sure, I think I need to put some money on the side...

It's hard to decide one, even I voted for Zelda. Zelda, X and Splatoon.

That list, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is the one I don't except that muchies...



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

There was a reason why those are released for Wii U and not 3DS. I am sure I read about it last summer or so. Was it that 3DS could not emulate those and the ambassador games were just something unique they created.

Bit disappointed that Shovel Knight is on sale already :P But it has been totally worth the money.

Anyways, FE for me. I just managed to transfer funds and I am downloading the Xmas offers so enough for me to play...



Finntendo commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

DD and MK8. Voted for DD. I love the co-op there. MK8 has just so much more, more stuff. I miss Petey from DD and playing that I drove and hubby threw items and punched.

And Wii wasn¨'t bad either :D



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (Europe):

I actually don't own 3D World... time to move some euros to card that I can use in eShop.

I know Rabbids Land is awful but maybe, maybe. I love Rabbid mayhem.

I already saw on CDON WatchDogs for 22e :P, now seems to be 30e.

Child of Light is totally worth the money - it is amazing game with wonderful sounds and wonderful looks, same with Rayman Legends. probably the only ubi games with little of glitches (and ZombiU). :D

And Goomba theme!



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

Unless in GameStops (there isn't any near me).. the stores don't either have Amiibos or they have only 9 (Mario, Link, DK, Peach, Starfox, Samus, Pikachu, Yoshi - Okay, 8 - I am not sure if I've seen Kirby either.

I went thru the gaming websites and nothing. Especially those four not mentioned (Trainer, Villager, Marth, Kirby).

The store I bought my Link and Yoshi - they must have sold those from their net store, since I cannot find it anymore. So I do hope, when January comes - internet retailers find some in stock and order since I am not getting near any place that I could find Villager. Or Marth.

I wasn't plannig to get these, but damn I just like figures... waa waa waa.



Finntendo commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

Wait... I just bought F-Zero X few months ago!

I bought N64 used from a friend for 600FIM (about 100e) with four games, three controllers. I hated that you had to buy extra stuff, such as Extension Pack.

Golden Eye, multiplayer and throwing knives.

And of course it gave us also OoT and MM. I never really had money or ways to buy games, since I think GC was already out and I was still a teen and less and less places were selling games here. And I remember those mad days at internet auctions trying to get OoT and finally MM. And Perfect Dark.
V-Rally also gave so much laugh when playing with my sister.

Still have few games to buy, even tho I just bought StarFox64 3D (because found it cheap)

Conrtoller is huge, but after all getting used to it. Different ways to hold it.

Would you like to hear it again? :P



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Dismisses Rumours That The GameCube C...:

Thankfully, seriously, I ordered adapter and two controllers on 15th Nov from French Amazon. When they still had those and the price was ok :P

Has Ninty been afraid that the controllers and adapter won't see or what¨s the problem? If they make one, they must have thought of that there's a market for those.
Same goes with Amiibo.

C'mon Ninty! People are throwing money your way and you screw up your chances not having stuff to sell!

I have to say... I've checked 7 of local markets that sell gaming stuff and only one has had Amiibos - and that one didin¨t have Villager. I just have to order online.... (seems to be in stock)



Finntendo commented on Super Smash Bros. Wii U Basic Bundle Heading f...:


Well, EU (tries) to save its own, since cannot really let one country crash... (cough Greece cough ). I think every western economy was hit 2009-2011 for what started from US.

Anyways, about the bundles. Buy 8GB and external. Buy 32 and external anyways, if you are going to download anything bigger from eShop :P



Finntendo commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I'd think Villager, for example, there would be later use. So somewhat I don't believe it. Or they'¨ll be dropped some point but two weeks after release?

My local store where I got Link and Yoshi, it didn't have those three. But Villager I want anyways so I may be ordering online, since there's a store that has free shipping.



Finntendo commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I think Ninty is pretty good for shutting up and then it slaps us with the data and all and oh, this will be released in 6 months (MM for example. And I think LBW came out of nowhere...for me at least).

But I can imagine difference between those two developers.

And yes Ninty. Now that FE:A gave HUGE boost to FE series, remake of PoR (and maybe RD) thank you.

..I did manage to get RD when it was still available and reasnoable place but stupid me didin't get the PoR.



Finntendo commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:


With shipping, I guess you cannot get lower than that Anttila price. Besides, Anttila (at least the one near me) got only Link, Starfox, Pikachu, Yoshi, Peach, DK, Mario (wasn't there more released?)

Local Prisma had no Amiibos, Gigantti I don't even bother anymore (19e seems to be, my nearest two doesn't even sell any gaming stuff anymore). My local stores seem to hate Ninty.

If you order something else from other country, then you may get some cheaper (like French Amazon)



Finntendo commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

I think Yoshi looked cool and so does Link, but. I have two original GCs (wavebird and the original black) and managed to order two more before out of stock (well, I hope those are arriving) or price going up. Bit mad at myself that didn¨t buy those original, white ones before the huge fuzz...

Oh yea. Had 3rd party controller for GC and it wasn't that good and ended up not working.

As for best ever...GC is good. 360 is great (hubby uses it for PC) and WiiU pro is pretty much similar, which is great - especially compared to Wii's CCP.



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:


Ah yes, it's mad. Average here is 7.03usd/gallon for gasoline and diesel 6.53usd/gallon. I drive diesel and pay 600e/yr tax for that (while those using gasoline pay about 60e/yr).,
And there is no such a thing that going down. News that price will go up, they'll go up but do those get down ..?Oh no.

I guess I can consider this as me few days spring holiday and actually fly and stay couple nights. (I tried give hubby and option that we take ferry from Vaasa to Umeå and then train or soemthing to Stockholm but he wasn't happy about that difficult route :P )



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:

If it really is 6th Apri, it's doggeypoopsiepoopsie since it's Easter Monday. I mean, I¨'ll be there more than that day and if Sweden is still Sweden, everything is closed :P

  • -- whaaat? Your bars are not open during the week? In Finland every day is good day to go to a bar — *

What a silly country...



Finntendo commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

My adapter ordered from French Amazon started its journey on Thursday. I ordered two controllers as well and they are bit delayed, said it will be shipping on 6th ( If google translate was right :P )

Even in my tiny country, adapterbundles are sold out - I don't know if stores got those versions at all - maybe they have Amiibo ones (I ordered game online, but in Fri picked up Link Amiibo from store but really didn't pay attention to their stock.)

UK Amazon has price has ogne up for 20 pounds for the controller. With the logo. "Old", white, official costs 24 pounds :P

Italian Amazon seems to have a few adapters and few adapter bundles, with reasonable price (25e adapter, 55e bundle, which is NICE. Tho I don't know their shipping rates)



Finntendo commented on Video: Here's How amiibo Works With Mario Kart...:

Got my Link, they hadn't even priced it yet in store (tho I knew what it's going to cost there, 16.99e) Opened Spinner for HW and tested it on SSB. I'm such a bad player, I kept losing to it (I named it pew pew.. of course wrong choice for swordsman, for Samus perhaps it would have suited better ) :D

...I have to say looking those Amiibos - those looked cool. Samus, Pikachu, StarFox... I don't know if I have to buy some other Amiibo for hubby if he cannot wait for his MegaMan.



Finntendo commented on Video: Join Us For A Look At Hyrule Warriors' ...:

For me, it just looks like he forgot to put his uniform on.... That's just wrong somehow. You enter the dangerous battlefield and you have to run around in shorts and t-shirt.




Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

Watch Dogs for WiiU has been ready for month, they just haven't released it. And keeping the price that high, the sales will be bad and now SSB coming out (after that people have already spent their money on HW, Bayo and MK DLC :P )

Not with that price, no thank you. I'll just wait. Besides, I'm still playing HW like mad, now MK8 DLC is out and even haven't touch Bayo's (1 and 2) and still theres SSB waiting to take my money XD

As for Ubisoft. Raymans are great (and Child of Light).. but seriously. The amount of bugs their games have, AC being extremely great example (I don't know should I laugh or cry when I've watched clips of bugs on Unity). I bet first time wee see WD on sale will be after Christmas.

it's almost like AC is meant to be always full of bugs so we can have a laugh :P



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:


French was 20e cheaper. Postage from UK was almost same number, only currency different ;) I was always just so used to order from UK when they had their super saver delivery but then they had to end it.

In my country, we also used to have place we can order cheaper, island called Åland (it was like Jersey was to UK). Anything below 42e had no tax so lots and lots of stuff was shipped thru there. They even built a new building for post there because increase was so mad. .... and then the state ruined it :P Our VAT is 24% with all of this kind of stuff...



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:


Oh I thought Link maybe preordered full. German Amazon has Link Amiibo, but it doesn't have controllers or game with adapter :P

I've been comparing and that I plan to buy two controllers as well and that will buy online since Finland one costs 45e (without shipping).

I usually check all UK, France (bought HW LE there, speak no french :P ) and Germany. I am always wondered if other countries have the websites that compare item prices.

We have two websites that you can check prices and I always use it for games, accessories or any other gadget I may buy, to see where is it cheapest.

...And I haven¨t even preordered the game. I just hate that if I preorder now, they'll just email me and say that sorry, you'll get yours in two weeks when we get more of these (happened to some with Bayo). So I guess I take my chances to see what my closest stores say on release day.



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

16,90e cheapest in Finland, of course shipping (going from few euros and up). Amazon has 10+ pounds, just counting as well which is cheaper.

Link of course (meh, and Zelda and Sheik and Toon Link) and MegaMan for hubby.

Coolshop (since you mentioned Denmark) has those for 21,90, even with free shipping it's insane. Maybe they drop it some point (they are nice, at one point you got minifigure of Danish football palyers :P )



Finntendo commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

I'm just calculating here... I'd get two SSB4GC controllers in price of 58e.In my country, you get one for 45e. I have two contollers (one normal and one wavebird). Why I did not buy these when I'd gotten for 20e.

I will buy physical copy so if I ever get 8 to play... it's four for the GC and rest can use motes and one pro controller (well, I also have two Wii CCP)



Finntendo commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:


Ha, I didn't like Wario Gold Mine on Wii and still don't like it.

As for Mute City. The music just brings so much memories and it being the last track, the music change when results are up, made me laugh. Kind of nice tribute to F-Zero (at least in SNES version, I don't remember if others had it). And Mute City music as still kind of MK feel to it :)

But it may be that Jet Bike will be changed to Blue Falcon..... :D (not sure about driving with Link tho)
