GamerFromJump commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

1. Serious Zelda is serious.
2. "Zelda! You can't do that! It's not your timeline! You'll create a Time Paradox!"

5. Takes some stones to b*tch-slap a big gorilla...
6. Magical wedgie! (alternatively, a hundred Rule34 works were just born.)

9. Link better be getting ready to attack, or he gets the same treatment as DK...



GamerFromJump commented on You'll Be Able To Choose Bulbasaur, Charmander...:

Since Squirtle is the only Gen I starter I haven't fully evolved, I think I'll go with him. Given that there's an Event Torchic, that covers Fire, so I guess I'll go against my normal tendency and pick Chespin this time out. I hope they reveal the evolutions soon. It's time to break out the old type chart and start building the team.



GamerFromJump commented on Nintendo Launching Cloud-Based Pokémon Bank S...:

What I'd like to know is:

  • How far into the game do you have to get to access the bank? This would be useful if you like having all three starters or want to build a team of stored Pokes from level 1.
  • Is the bank tied to the copy of the game and Trainer ID that accesses it, like Pokemon Box was, or is it passworded or console ID linked, or something? This is important because, in the absence of New Game+, I'd like to be able to drop the Pokemon I catch into the Bank, then gather a new team from it for subsequent playthroughs.
  • Can you keep items? Again, multiple playthroughs, plus unique things like the creation trio orbs, Blazikenite from the event, unique evolution items, and the like.

I rather like the fact that I will not need a second 3DS and game copy to keep my collection. Given that that was the only way to do it in previous generations, $5/yr seems a bargain.



GamerFromJump commented on First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda 3DS:

"New Legend of Zelda: A Link to the After Years"

Interesting that it's of late become legitimate to return to existing worlds from a new perspective. I actually like that, given that it opens new explorations of existing terrain.



GamerFromJump commented on Nintendo Download: 7th March 2013 (North America):

@3Dash: They're out. Go to Outrealm Gate in the actual game, and update. Unless you have a high level team, you will not have a chance in Infinite Regalia. Golden and EXPonential are great for grinding, though; just make sure to check the battle predictions first.

@Windy: Thanks for the heads up! I haven't been to the PSP store in a long time, because there's still so much 3DS stuff I'm after.

@Draken18: Not much; maybe 1,000 or so.

@KnightRider666: Agreed, best in the classic, though GB MMV is up there (and where's the VC for that game, anyway?)



GamerFromJump commented on Talking Point: This Fan's Tragic Tale Highligh...:

Nintendo can track every purchase you make via Club Nintendo. They know darn well that you have bought a game, and you should be able to get it on your console if you replace it, as is industry-standard practice.

There is no excuse for this system, Nintendo. None.



GamerFromJump commented on New Pokémon Gets Caught In Some Footage:

Calling it now, Sylveon is a Normal type. More Pokemon in the pink color group (17/37) are Normals than any other type. It'll need something to make it worth using.

This doesn't preclude a new type, though the amount of rebalancing needed would boggle the mind.



GamerFromJump commented on Nintendo of America Outlines Upcoming Q1 eShop...:


You don't actually have to redownload everything. If you have a PC with a card reader (or can get a USB card reader; they're cheap) just do this:

  • Create a folder on your PC, so that it will be easy to find.
  • Insert old card. Copy the entire contents into the PC folder. Do not alter the directory structure or contents.
  • Eject old card, insert new card. It should be FAT32 format. If not, make it so. The 3DS can do it for you if you insert the new card into it, go into settings and choose to format the SD card.
  • Copy the contents of the PC folder (not the PC folder itself) onto the new card, again without touching the file structure.
  • Eject the new card and put it into your 3DS. Hey presto, your 3DS is none the wiser, but now enjoys expanded memory.

Now, if only they'd fix it so DSiWare could run off the card...



GamerFromJump commented on Talking Point: Pokémon X & Y Provide a Timely...:

Please Nintendo, for the love of god, include a "New Game Plus" option this time! It would be nice to not need a whole second 3DS to play the game more than once, while still preserving the Pokemon caught. Also, please release to the eShop. I live abroad, and would thus have to have a copy shipped ($$$).



GamerFromJump commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd January 2013 (North Ame...:

Picked up Unchained Blades, Galaxy Saver and Gunman Clive. Code of Princess went into the "later" list after a period of consideration between it and Blades.

I hope a future update allows the playing of DS titles off the SD card, like the Wii. My internal memory is starting to fill with DS titles.
