Funbunz commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Wow, lots of strong negative opinions on this topic! I think it would be great. If I had a nickel for everytime I'd wished I could make a call or send a text on my 3ds, it would pay for a Nintendo phone. A sturdy, reliable, glitch free phone with apps that always work!
However, I am not a big fan of mobile gaming and shovelware in general. I would way rather Nintendo used the phone to bridge the Wii U and 3ds. For example, if you set Smash as your favorite game on 3ds, your phone would automatically bring up Smash Bros wallpaper. The music player would have the soundtrack to listen to, ringtones too. And why not get updates sent with tips on fighting as your favorite character?
The point is, they could use it to promote and supplement what they are already doing and add value to their customers. It doesn't mean they have to devolve into making awful mobile games.



Funbunz commented on Video: GameStop Shows How It Faked 'Karissa th...:

Yes, it's just a publicity stunt. Did it hurt anyone? No. But it is pretty stupid. Setting up something dumb and fake is the best they could come up with? Way to go, Gamestop. I bought Smash Brothers somewhere else.



Funbunz commented on Shulk amiibo Listed as GameStop Exclusive in t...:

Lame. I don't like shopping at Gamestop, but since I won't be buying any Amiibo it won't matter to me. But if they make a light up Monado kind of like those toy lightsabers, I'm in. I'd enjoy waving that around and shouting about how "I'm really feeling it!" in a bad english accent.



Funbunz commented on Satoru Iwata Outlines Nintendo's First QOL Pla...:

I guess I don't know much about sleep monitors or why folks without sleep anea would need one. It will basically tell you how much sleep you get? Maybe it will connect to 3ds? I suppose I would get way more sleep if the monitor could disable my 3ds at bed time so I don't stay up way too late playing Smash Bros.



Funbunz commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Special D...:

Man, I am sick of their dumb codes. I am still bitter and angry cuz I didn't get a code for Tomodachi Life or Smash, even tho I have been a Platinum Cub Nintendo member for several years. But Nintendo, I can never stay angry at you (SEND ME A POKEMON CODE!) although some of your strange decisions make me wonder why I am still a fan...



Funbunz commented on Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop):

This looks pretty cool! Can anybody tell me if this has premade sounds? And if so, how many and what kind of variety? I like electronic music, but I also want to be able to make some less electronic sounding stuff. Like a piano or guitar sound! I have Rytmik Retrobits, but unfortunately I don't have the talent it takes to turn that game's mostly annoying sounds into anything as cool as the demo tracks that come with it.



Funbunz commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

While I appreciate what appears to be actual honesty, it's too little and too late. Ubi is probably doing me a huge favor, my backlog of games grows steadily and I really can't waste time on mediocre titles. Everytime they release a game, they seem to increase my annoyance with them. I probably would have bought Rayman and Watchdogs if not for the delays. I almost bought Child of Light last weekend until I realized there was missing DLC. I WILL NOT pay for gimped ports and incomplete games. I'm starting to believe they must want to fail.



Funbunz commented on Soapbox: 'Vintage' Used Game Prices Do Nothing...:

I avoid shopping there whenever I can. Cracks me up when I see a used copy of a game there for $30 when I can walk down 2 stores to Target and buy the game new for $20. I really don't understand how they stay in business. But this does have me considering selling my copies of Xenoblade and Metroid Prime Trilogy. I could buy a 3ds xl!



Funbunz commented on Review: Galaga (Wii U eShop / NES):

Yeah, five bucks seems kinda steep. Not just for this game, though- Nintendo would make lots more money on these old games (at least from me!) if they were more reasonably priced. I'd have downloaded quite a few old NES titles for my 3ds if they were 2 or 3 bucks.



Funbunz commented on Disney Infinity's First Wave of Power Disc "Bl...:

@unrandomsam Fire Emblem is a pretty good game, don't miss out just because you don't like the DLC. Just don't get the extra stuff. I played through it the first time without buying any, and really enjoyed it. I bought the EXP map for my second playthrough to cut down on time spent grinding, and I don't regret it.



Funbunz commented on Nintendo Feels That Working On Smartphones And...:

Not too long ago, weren't all the industry "pros" calling for Nintendo to abandon the 3ds, because they'd never be able to compete with smart phones? I have no games on my smart phone at all. But I sure love my 3ds for gaming.



Funbunz commented on First Impressions: Disney Infinity:

Pass. I don't care if it has more to do than Skylanders, I'm not buying any game that requires buying stupid plastic crap that my kids will misplace. I already spend the first 5 minutes of a gaming session looking for remotes, controllers, and the game I want. Not adding a plastic toy to the mix. Also, Disney sucks. I'm pretty tired of them and all their repackaging of old characters and movies.



Funbunz commented on Soapbox: The 8-Bit Era Laid the Groundwork, bu...:

@Ickaser I've thought about this a bit, I see my kids do the same thing! I go on and on about how great the original LOZ is, and they just don't enjoy it. I think newer gamers struggle with classics for two reasons- #1 you have so many other options for games and entertainment (got LOZ for xmas when I was 10. Only had 4 other games at all, not 100 games to pick from like my kids) and #2 is imagination. Since games never looked very real, we would look at the art on the box and manual, and pretend that blurry blue blob on the screen was actually a dragon. And that kind of mental investment is probably why older gamers have such nostalgia for the old games.



Funbunz commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Optimistic About The Future o...:

Doesn't matter if PS4 comes with no game and requires a subscription. It still only costs a little more. People know you can't just buy the console- even Wii U buyers are likely to get a pro controller or Wii remote, rechargeable batteries, etc. I think my brother dropped about $600 by the time he left the store with his Wii U.



Funbunz commented on Review: Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS eShop / NES):

When I was a kid, I found this game almost too difficult. Now I'm older (and out of practice) and this game is still pretty difficult. I got All Stars on the Wii, but I might still buy this. I always preferred the NES version.



Funbunz commented on Soapbox: Why We Should Expect More From The Le...:

So sad! I love Wind Waker SO MUCH, but the only complaints I have about the game (stopping to redirect the wind and MIDI music) are still issues with the remake. WTF Nintendo? I liked the slow boat speed, I liked the triforce collecting, and I don't see a huge difference in the visuals. Yeah, it looks a little better. Yeah, the few new features are kind of cool. But why can't the 3ds act as a tingle tuner? I would rather they just stuck this on the eshop. I'd never pay more than about $25 for a remake with so little added. At least the Ocarina remake added 3d.



Funbunz commented on Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS):

Wow! I wanted this game before, now with good reviews and the $30 promo, I can't wait. I still can't figure out why the download would cost the same as a limited edition bundle, though.



Funbunz commented on Ubisoft CEO Admits ZombiU Sales Were Disappoin...:

I wonder about a crash, too. Games keep getting more expensive to make, and I still feel uncomfortable paying $60 for games. I almost never buy games when they first come out. And what happens to all these developers sinking big money into ps4 and xboxone when those systems sell as poorly as the Wii U?



Funbunz commented on Poll: How Important is Dual / Second Screen Ga...:

I'd love to see a game like Sky rim. All the compass stuff, HP, etc would be on the gamepad, and maybe a dozen or so squares that you could tap like a hotkey. No more pausing the action to scroll through a huge list of weapons and spells, and nothing on your TV to block your view of the game.



Funbunz commented on Review: Mega Man 3 (Wii U eShop / NES):

Mega man 3 has always been my favorite. It's the one I had as a kid and still the only one I've completed. I could never get past that stupid dragon boss in Mega man 2, otherwise it would be my favorite.



Funbunz commented on Reggie: This Holiday Season Is Going To Be Ext...:

It sucks that so many Wii U games got delayed, but I imagine the same thing will end up happening to Xbox1 and PS4. Obviously, I don't know crap about programming and whatnot, but it must take a huge amount of time to design the graphics. Either some of their launch titles will be delayed, or they will be awful, unplayable garbage.



Funbunz commented on Interview: Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma Talks DL...:

No new dungeons? I don't see a $60 difference in the graphics. Why should I buy this? The boat goes faster, so what. I enjoyed the pace of the original. Certainly not enough here to convince me to shell out for a Wii U. But if they release it as a bundle with a golden Wii U...



Funbunz commented on Out Now: Animal Crossing: New Leaf:

@Funny_Moblin Don't stress! People are just excited. I don't even have a Wii U and I'm still mad that Ray man was delayed. We all have different reasons to complain or be excited. That's why video games are so great.



Funbunz commented on The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 Will...:

Does it really make a difference on battery life if you only use 1/2 the 3d? I always assumed that using it at all drained as much as full blast. Either way, the 3ds has to draw two screens.I think that's more of a battery killer.



Funbunz commented on Pachter Predicts Wii U Price Cut, Feels Ninten...:

@ron4540 That move would really hurt the chances of developers actually using the game pad for anything useful in a game. They can't have it do something necessary for game play if not everyone has one. While I'm still not entirely sold on the pad myself, Nintendo can't stop using it now.



Funbunz commented on Feature: Our Top 10 3DS Games - Summer 2013:

If I based my list on time spent playing, it's Fire Emblem FTW!
I've also wasted huge amounts of time collecting hats and puzzle pieces, and on a $5 sudoku download. I felt Mario 3d was too short to justify a #1. When I started clearing levels as fast as I could to be a good rival for spotpass people, I realized that some levels have almost nothing to them,



Funbunz commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Virtual Boy:

I got to play one when I was a kid. I remember being really excited about it. People complained about the red lights shining in their eyes, but it was much easier to see the game you were playing on a virtual boy than on the original game boy.



Funbunz commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About the 3DS:

So many of you guys love Monster Hunter. Is the 3ds version better than on the Wii? I had it, and tried really hard to enjoy it. But I found it hard to control in the fights, and all the areas seemed small which led to watching a load screen every 5 seconds. Every time I played it, I thought about how I'd be having way more fun playing Skyrim. Even still, I'm tempted to try again...



Funbunz commented on Fire Emblem: Awakening Could Have Been The Swa...:

@Einherjar Maybe you just haven't reached the right stage in your life! Wind Waker came out about the time my first son was born. He was a terrible sleeper and screamed a ton. I spent many hours of the night sailing the seas of Hyrule and rocking my son. It was so beautiful and peaceful and fun, it helped keep me sane with very little sleep! I didn't find it to be slow or boring.



Funbunz commented on Consumers Go Crazy For Wii U Following Xbox On...:

I really don't understand why anyone would buy Xbox1 at launch. I know so many people whose 360's got RROD. That's part of the reason their numbers are so high this gen, each buyer actually bought two or three consoles. Don't people ever learn? You can't trust Microsoft to make a console that won't crap out. I've been a gamer since the 80's and I've NEVER had a Nintendo console quit on me, but to be fair it did become difficult to load games into my NES when it got old.



Funbunz commented on Nintendo Hosting a Pokémon X & Y Developer Ro...:

I hope they take out random encounters. How about you just see rustling grass moving along here and there? Then different Pokemon could have different types of movement, like some might run away as you approach. I just really loved Dragon Quest ix since you could usually avoid a battle if you were in a hurry or didn't want to waste time fighting weak enemies in an area you'd been through earlier.
