XCX! ..then Yoshi's Woolly World (preordered and probably won't arrive next week but I assume soon in the beginning of the next week)!
Devil's Third is also interesting. And Star Foxy.

I couldn't care less for Mario Makers or Skylander. Just not my thing.



Finntendo commented on Amazon Confirms US amiibo Pre-Order Times for ...:

These were released in Eurooe few weeks ago and I managed to get Lucina and Ness. I still see some retailers selling NESS for 70€! RETAILERS!

Also today arrives some Amiibo, and my JIgglypuff is coming with my Splatoon Squid edition.. didn't order Inkling Boy or Girl because I thought they'd be more available but... SO far I haven't gotte for what I want is Rosalina, MetaKnight, Shulk and Robin.

My only chance is to buy online.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Unable To Promise When It Can Remedy ...:

Oh. The online retailers here have already getting greedy themselves. One is selling (in stock) Ness amiibo for 70€.
Fit Trainer and Marth can be found at 40€

ANd I agree, if everything is sold out, there is damn well space in shelves :P

I have one order in 3/4 of amiibos is reserved, waiting for Robin and all they know is "28 days". Maybe.

Damn it if my Splatoon is held back because Jiggypuff is in same order.

Also my MetaKnight/Shulk order is somewhere with N/A



Finntendo commented on Reaction: The Splatoon Global Testfire Demo Is...:

You do realise they try to get as much as they can people on servers at the same time? Like someone commented yesterday, demo is for them, not for us. And who knows if they make it playable demo before realease.

(I have Inklingbundle pre-ordered. Jiggypuff amiibo is released on same day so I have that in same order...I hope it doesn't hold back my Splatoon)

But time is nice. First one I miss since I am working at 06-07, but others are 14-15 and 22-23 - hooray!



Finntendo commented on Here's Why The StreetPass Bunny Couldn't Care ...:

And these kids weren't at school I think. Well, they already locked the iPad so no that for kids, but still. I don't store my card info anywhere even it is just me and my hubby.

I guess they are getting their money back and in their case the bank had closed the card when there was "strange" activity so it could have been worse.



Finntendo commented on First Impressions: The Addictive Futility of t...:

Oh I'd like these, but no hits where I live and I don't even know if there is any hotspots in my country anymore. In Stockholm I also checked few places that should have those, but nothing.... I think only ones I've ever seen was in NYC and Berlin.

(Now that Zelda Symphony was pretty good to get SP hits :P )



Finntendo commented on Here's Why The StreetPass Bunny Couldn't Care ...:


Oh we have lots of these! We've also fined MS for IE and WMP being preinstalled...and was there something else? Now Google is sued for something similar.

And I agree this is good thing. I mean, how someone can be bothered that it is set this way in Europe? Safety thingie for kids, teens/adults don't care or don't think it's anything special.

So eShop can be put behind password. Last week one friend wrote his card is be misused and 400€ gone. Then he realised his kids had been playing with iPad and buying stuff and their mom had stored card information and kids had seen her typing the password. I told wouldn't it be easier not to store the card info.

As for someone mentioning baseball games. Now who on earth in Europe would like to play those? :P

I went to Yankees game when I was in NYC and jeebus it was boring. I thought it was about the game, but apperantly it was about hot dogs and beer. We have our own version of baseball in Finland and it much faster and more exciting to watch :P



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):


Nope, supports also Wii's classic controller (or that's what my cover said).

I try not to spoil too much - I really liked the game, it's bit different and in a way, horrorish - and, one thing that may annoy is that dungeons are kinda time limited. But with that price - you cannot go wrong.

And Torrent Peak boss... 'nuff said :/



Finntendo commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:


Yes you should.
I always planned to play just few hours and ended up playing 6. Finished with 167h, tho didn't finish everything that could have been done. OST is also one of the best - ever.

I am not going to buy copy of this, but I do have Monado covers on my N3DS - oh so pretty (okay, basicly that has my hubby's NNID and it is "his" and he got really excited about the colours and changed those right away)



Finntendo commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):


Oh Bubble Bobble! Somewhere around level 30 that music really starts to get you....

I've never had this MK since I never owned DS. But I don't mind lack of online, I never even played MKW online....

..the only thing I don't get is why this is on Wii U....



Finntendo commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 1st...:


:D I've had SNES with few games, but I bought N64 used from a friend in 2000 or 2001 - three controllers, four games (V-Rally, F1, Goldeneye and NHL97) - then boght Perfect Dark and both Zeldas for it (and recently F-Zero X). That time games just were difficult to obtain and I'd never ask my parents (I was 15 at 2000) to buy me a game and money I got from work was used to other stuff. I bought Perfect Dark locally (we somehow had Nintendo retailer near but I disliked that couple and still do) and it cost damn 75e! (But ha! THey were selling GC Zelda bundle+memory+two used games for 70e. I bought it, noticed no memorycard so they let me choose from new games. I chose Zelda Four Swords and sold the console for 45e since I already had one (Read: WW and LoZ Four Swords for 35e) :D And 2013 I went to see if they still have Nintygames, so for 10e I got Metroid Prime and F-Zero GX (platinium, but still new) :D )
So even Gamecube I got bit late since it was given by my sis 2006 or 2007, Wii I did buy on 2007. And first DS was the Fire Emblem Awakening edition ;)

So yes, I will buy the game and I think being old isn't problem. I am still enyoying SMW (even I borrowed cartridge to one boy and never got it back * sob * )



Finntendo commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:


Well it is turning 11 this year... (see, since I've owned handheld only few years, I've barely paid attention to Zeldas released to those systems :P )
LTTP was so mindblowing experience for me when I was a kid, borrowed it from kid living in the same village, the map that came with the game and all..
But now that you mention Minish Cap, I really should play it since I bought it for Wii U....

But yeah, others like cats and others like dogs.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd April (Europe):


Wohoo! Someone agreeing with me about the English voice in XC! Besidse, now that Jenna Coleman (Melia) has been in Doctor Who, I don't think I could take it seriously.. :P

For me, I don't think discussion in English would be that bad but since they shout all the time in battle, it annoys me and it is less annoying in Japanese.



Finntendo commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

So do you like any of the old Zelda games? (except Zelda 2) ;)

I, pesonally, am just so obsessed with LTTP that LBW was, oh so good!

For those making to top 10, I didn't vote OoT (even it's awesome game, but N64 for me), Smash or Luigi's Mansion. I had Tomodachi, Kid Icarus and... something. Edit: That something was FF CC



Finntendo commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

..the thing with Ninty. Then can still slap you with some amazing stuff on E3 (or Nintendo Directs at that time). Nothing, nothing, nothing, you watch ND and BAM. You are poopitypooping you pants when you realise it's something mindblowning Nintygames are on their way and fast!

I mean, LBW was bit surprise. MM release fast after official announcement. I mean, E3 is in June, they have plenty of time to once again, catch us all pants down ;) (and sceam at our screens OMGOMGOMGOMG! )

I love Ninty. I love their non-buggy games. I watch gameglitches on youtube and wonder why I don't see the funny stuff in my games, but it's Nintendo.

Okay fine, AC III and IV, but the first one is so buggy that I don't know if it's even funny.



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

Umm.. Aftonbladet. Not really the high-end kind of news making.

Besides, feminism in Sweden has gotten out of hand. Seriously. And it annoys me that where it spears first? Here of course.. GRR!

They have kindergardens that have no boys or girls, there are just "friends".
(IMHO, no matter how hard you try, the biological differences are still there).

So like others... Isn't it TPTBs job to rate it and then up to people, if they buy it? Like any other game, let's say violent games (GTA, MadWorld, wargames) etc.

But Aftonbladet... meh. They have such a silly articles...!



Finntendo commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

I have Samurai Warriors Katana, would like Warriors Orochi.

I've played over 100h of HW and not even close to done with it. Even with sad framerate drops and all. I just enjoy the game so much.

I like hack 'n slash but since haven't owned the systems to play those.

Oh Zant. How awesome is he (okay, I actually only find Darunia boring and Ruto bit annoying).



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Off...:


Sounds interesting but then again, I am signed in UK's CN and I assume Germany has it's own?

But for your case, I have one unregistered game, I mean PIN for stars (Ninja Gaiden Razos Edge) - do you have WiiU? Can you message me thru there (you see my IDs in my profile).



Finntendo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Right to Take Its Ti...:

First fix on eShop should be that you can buy the game but you don't have to download it right away. Had this problem when I didnn't have external drive. Drove me mad "sorry, you don't have enough space to buy this game". WAA!

And they really should indicate somewhere in eShop that Visa Electron is not accepted and with that, to make buying eShop cards much more easier, wider. Here it's limited to GS, thankfully I am old enough to have a card other than Electron, otherwies I'd have no chance to get money to eShop.



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Off...:

I have 4000 or something stars as well but cannot get one, since the stupid Nordic Countries doesn't have CN and those countries that have only ship to their own countries. (I've used UK, got wii points card that way but not possible with Wii U since you cannot change your country like you could with Wii)



Finntendo commented on Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power Announced for ...:

Just looked at their website and they wanted to publish in in Jan and now again they don't know. I wonder what's the problem is.

And I am going to buy. Both. Even Trine 2 made me yell at tv every now and then :P




Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda New Nintendo 3DS Cover Pla...:

Ohoh! I preordered this before the news here! I've been furiously searchng when they appear. Finnish stores seem to have preorders open.

I actually have order in two places. First I preordered those from cheaper place but then I don't trust their stock system, I ordered from website that I know will stop taking preorders once full. I really have to cancel the other one and hope I do get the latter.

I have so manypreorders running that it's hard to keep up with! :D

CDON still has both available for preorder (MM and Xenoblade - it's the site tho that I am not so sure can they keep up with preorders)



Finntendo commented on GameStop Italy Lists Majora's Mask New Nintend...:


Finland is in Europe so it has the same region than Italy :P

Of course console rsing in Europe doesn't really help those in US.


I thought CDON uses same stock for all the countries, but doesn't seem so. Finnish site has no that console left.Webhallen shows the same thing (that it can be ordered) ...Webhallens website is so basicly is in Finnish but, there is still Swedish mixed and some odd translations.

I kind of like that Limited Edition is limited, but why we start to be out of stock with everything ...? Well games are still there, but everything else. Doesn't Ninty believe that they sell or do they just create anger and fuss so their items would get more desirable...?



Finntendo commented on GameStop Italy Lists Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

A Finnish webstore Verkkokauppa had a few yesterday, but seems those are sold out now - besides, wouldn' t matter since they only deliver inside the country. (I was pretty annoyed since I thought they were already sold out in pre-order so I went with basic 3ds)

There seems to be one on Finnish online store called VPD, price 329 :/ (I guess you can order from other country, you just have to contact them beforehand)



Finntendo commented on Club Nintendo in Japan is Full of Delightful T...:

Oh and make it digally downloadable!

Meanwhile Europe gets nothing new, The Nordic Countries are still left out like all this time CN existed. Yes, we get codes from games but no use - with Wii you could use stars to get Wiipoints, since with Wii you could change your country. I think I have some 8000 stars...



Finntendo commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:


AAH! Forgot to visit GS when I was in Helsinki. I was planning to but I got distracted :D

Last wawe, the only one I actually got from my PreOrders was MegaMan.

We don't have hoarders but seems like the country itself is getting very little of Amiibos. And in a way, only a few carry those (like my both two local Gigantti, neither one has Amiibos - other is crappy with games anyways)... Which reminded me that I have to check BR Toys today. I always forget they have Nintygames and yes, amiibos (I checked it when the first ones came).
Link doesn't seem to be problem anymor here. I see plenty of stocks.

So far I got Link, Zelda, Sheik, Cpt Falcon, Pikachu, StarFox, MegaMan, Villager , Yoshi, Ike, Marth, Samus, Kirby, ToonLink.

About the stories... eeew that manager. Since it's a chain, I'd contacted someone on upper level.



Finntendo commented on Sonic and Mega Man amiibo Available Again from...:

Here getting MegaMan doesn't seem to be a problem (it still available from CDON) but everything else in this wave. 30days - Dedede, Shulk, MetaKnight. Basicly everything else is out of stock except Link, Zelda, DK, DiddyK, Pikachu, Luigi, Mario, Samus.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Kirby, Kirby, Kirby. Even not 10e discount, 19.99 is still cheaper than trying to find it phsyical (and when you do, it's 40e).

Upcoming Sin and Punishment... bought it year ago for 14.90 and still available for that in stores, if you can find it.



Finntendo commented on GameStop Pushes Back Some Wave 3 amiibo Pre-Or...:


I feel sorry for US too :/ I finally got my Marth, restocked on CDON (seems they sold all). Hubby brought Kirby and Toon Link from one store - Rosalina, Ike and Sheik I ordered, but Rosalina got delayed. I am worrying about MegaMan since it's all hubby wants. But truly hope I can get it.. pffft. Maybe I have to put up another preorder, haven't really done it with Amiibos.

I've barely seen any Kirby's, now I cheked the store site hubby bought one from (they show all their supplies online, how much and where) and it is gone. I am glad I asked him to buy it :)
