GumbyX84 commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

And I lost my chance at Paper Mario. Yay for forgetfulness. :( Star Fox 64 is the only thing that looks good on this month and I already own the original and 3DS remake, I'd set.

PS There are physical rewards, but only five: two sets of greeting cards ( Mario & Luigi and Nintendogs), Epic Yarn patches, and two Animal Crossing items (a poster and a reversible carrying 3DS pouch). The others have been removed outright or are out of stock.

GumbyX84 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

I don't know what the huge deal is. I refuse to believe this gives you any real advantage. There is no real way to test it. You can never race the same way on a track multiple times. You will always take a turn a little bit different or hit the drift just right. This isn't like snaking where you can clearly see the advantage. I could care less if it's taken out or not.

GumbyX84 commented on Twisted Fusion Joins the Kickstarter Ranks, Wi...:

The game is still in development so there is room to grow. Looks interesting to me though I want to know about the game and on what scale they plan on taking the game. I would love a Metroid-vania style run-n'-gun on the Wii U.

:( I would have bought it in a heatbeat if I knew it was going to be removed. I'm tempted to follow GeminiSaint's lead and get Neutopia 1 and 2 asap. Sames goes for Pulseman. Here's hoping for some extra money after PAX East.

While I love my RetroDue (it's what got me back into retro gaming), I'm going to hold off on this until the RetroN5. I didn't know it ran on Android OS. This means we shouldn't have the same compatibility issues as we do with repo consoles. Looking at you Battletoads.

I do have one question I hope gets answered in the Super Retro Advance Adapter review: Will it only play GBA games or will GBC games work as well? To my knowledge we don't have a way to play GBC games on a TV yet.

@Zobocop Was just about to post that. Suprised no one else noticed it. Maybe we're reading too into it or it was a mis-quote. If you look at Go-Nintnedo's article, you see an ellipsis after "We don’t have the rights to Mega Man, obviously, but we are working with him on a live action adaptation of it"

"The developers aim to hit their $95,000 target before March 11th, but should they continue to receive donations after the target has been met, there’s a chance the game could come to Wii U and 3DS."

Yes. A release of your totally "original" game on Nintendo p
latforms.... Any guess how long it will be until they get a cease and desist?

GumbyX84 commented on Review: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Be...:

I just played the PS3 version of the game (Gamefly sent me that instead of the Wii U version) and while I agree that it can get a bit boring at times, I still don't think it's as bad as reviewers are making it out to be. Gauntlet and Champions of Norrath got great reviews back in day and are still considered great games today. They play exactly like this. I don't understand how those can be so great and this so bad.

All that withstanding, game should be $40 at a max.

GumbyX84 commented on Review: Power Rangers Megaforce (3DS):

@CountWavula First off, leave the rose colored glasses at the door. While I love MMPR and Power Rangers in general, I cannot say that MMPR is the "best series EVER". Much like any season in any series, it had its faults. Megaforce definetly has its problems, but some of them can be looked past just like those in the original series.

Sorry for getting off topic, but it annoys me when fanboys start whining. I didn't expect this game to be that great, thought I didn't expect it to be that bad. I have it in my Gamefly Queue so I'll come to my own conclusion once I give it a try. While it might be bad, I don't think it can be as bad as Power Rangers Super Legends. Oh dear GOD the megazord battles >.<

PS Jason not best Red Ranger. Tommy is. Followed by Andros. :-D

GumbyX84 commented on Pokémon Bank Pricing Emerges For Europe:

I know people are sating that $5 is nothing and people who complain shouldn't be, but you guys need to keep something in mind. Having cloud storage for your pokemon is fine, but transferring Pokemon from the previous gen to the current should be free. IMO Nintendo's reason for not having a local transfer app is bull.

" Why can't I Link Trade Pokémon between Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and past Pokémon titles?

Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 were developed to be compatible with the Nintendo DSi system, while Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were developed exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Due to differences in the functionality and specifications of the two families, including their communications systems, it is not possible to carry out communications directly between software designed for the two different families."

If this is true, then how is it possible to transfer Pokemon from Dream Radar, a 3DS game, to the Gen 5 games, which are DS games? With an SD card being included with every 3DS to date, there is no need for two systems as Pokemon can saved to the SD card before being transfered to X/Y. If they are concerned with cheating or duplication, limit how many Pokemon can be transferred at once so the internal memory of the 3DS can be used.

GumbyX84 commented on The Pokémon Company Lays Down The Law On Chea...:

@SonataAndante THIS. I have only hacked for EVs, moves, and levels. I breed for IVs and shinies (if so desired) and all my movesets are legal. I do this so I can enjoy the game in friendly tournament play and in-game without a lot of grinding, which isn't fun and feels like a waste of time to me. While I understand many people have faced cheaters that have ruined the online game for them, some of us do things within the rules. I cheat "legally". Take that as you will. 9 out of 10 I won't be able to do this in Gen 6, but thankfully Nintendo and Game Freak have decided to make EVs a lot easier to track and gain so I probably won't have to worry about it.

@allav866 Yes I have played it. And beaten it, including MetaKnightmare. Also, it was back when the game first launched so its been awhile sine I've played it. I didn't think it was necessary, but maybe I should have stated that that was my opinion. I personally prefer the original as the extra content doesn't really interest me. The only ones to note would be MetaKnightmare and True Arena. Also, they took out Megaton Punch.

GumbyX84 commented on Microsoft: If You're Backwards Compatible, You...:

The only reason I don't use backwards-compatibility is most of my game collection isn't supported or doesn't work right. Maybe if they actually put effort into BC with the 360 that number would be higher. I know many people who used BC with the PS3 and Wii (those models with the feature anyway).

@Frapp Agreed. IMO, this is as bad as the guy that started the "always-on" PR fiasco.

I say this is biased towards SMB3, but if it wasn't I'd be surprised. Both seem like fun games. Seeing this brings back memories. I remember running to the jewelry section of K-Mart to play the Game Watches while my mom shopped.

So the retail download of MH3U comes out 5 days earlier than the physical retail game. >.< You suck Capcom.

I'll be downloading the HarmoKnight demo and maybe MM3. I will have to wait till the 19th to get MH3U. Hoping the circle pad Pro XL comes out on the 19th.

I have been waiting patiently for a Black 3DS XL and now its ONLY being released in the UK? >.< I know we will get it in the states eventually (I hope), but its rather annoying. I HATE region exclusive colors or special edition systems. Thankfully a quick search turned this up: http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomus/en_US/pd/ThemeID.1944700/ProductID.268583100/Monster-Hunter-3-Ultimate-3DS-XL-Case.html . Look nice and the bottom half is removable (hopefully easily) so you can attach the Circle Pad XL. I'll be buying it day 1 if it shows up in retail.

Ya. That's messed up. 9 out of 10 he agreed to this ridiculous settlement because he didn't have the funds/will to keep fighting it. I know its not going to happen, but I wish there would be a public backlash at Sony for this.

GumbyX84 commented on Review: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd Yo...:

This game will be my first real foray into Adventure Time. minus what I have learned from friends, the internet, and the parts for a few episodes I caught randomly on TV. I like the humor in the show and am happy it is alive and well in the game. I'm playing through the game using a GameFly rental and I'm enjoying it. When it drops in price I will probably end up buying it.

@pntjr It might have been a better idea if the have been made for the eShop. It seems to be on the same production level and length as Shantae. Due to its popularity and backing from Cartoon Network, its was a retail release.

People complaining about the length of the game: Some games are $40 for 3DS and are just as short. If Shantae had been released at retail people would say the same thing: Great game, too short.

GumbyX84 commented on Picked Up A Pre-Owned Wii U Console? You Could...:

My question is did the previous owner just delete the games or did he wipe the entire system? From what I know, if you do a full wipe of a DSi, 3DS, or Wii you lose access to all previous downloads. This could just be the case of the previous seller not knowing how to properly wipe/"reset" the system.

GumbyX84 commented on Review: Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion ...:

Really? I find this game a lot of fun. The difficulty curve feel like the games of old which is fine by me. Every time I screw up on a jump its a timing issue on my part. I agree that more films and shows should have been represented, but its ruins the game.

The one thing I will agree with is the drawing does pull you out of the game. It just gets annoying when you have to do multiple times for one jump. Having to quickly color stuff in to make it appear in-game would have been a better mechanic IMO. Buying upgrades to the size of the brush so you can fill in and erase faster would have fit well with the upgrade system in the game.

GumbyX84 commented on Capcom Has A Whole Year Of Mega Man Celebratio...:

@rockman_zero First thing: PLEASE use punctuation.

Second: MM9 wasn't "garbage". MM10 wasn't great but it wasn't horrible either. I don't know why people are either all for the classic or modern style. We wouldn't have the modern (X, ZX) without the originals and the series would have died if not for the modern games. I agree that some of the modern games don't hold up (MMX6-8 I'm looking at you), but they aren't complete garbage.

Honestly, I hope Capcom finally bridges the generations together. I want a cannon story of how the Megaman timeline leads to the X timeline. Same goes for the X timeline in Z and Z into ZX.

About MMZ: It is part of the Megaman cannon as far as I know. I firmly believe the plots of the MMZ games tie in directly to the story of ZX.

@RR529 I agree I want MMV on VC. We will never be able to play it any othe way. :'( Stupid Capcom canceling megaman collection for GBA.

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo of Europe Gives Free Retail Game to 3...:

Wish this would come to the US, but I highly doubt it. European gamers deserve it though as they get shafted a lot.

@RupeeClock The article says you have registered a XL before January 15th

Once you register the system on your account, or if you've already done so, you'll be prompted by a promotional banner to claim your freebie.

@Tsuchiya Its not that big of a deal and doesn't screw over anyone. Getting upset about this is like getting upset when a company bundles a game with a console as a special edition. I assume you were unhappy when Nintendo gave early adapters the ambassador program.

GumbyX84 commented on Review: Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS):

I don't know why Nintendo is trying to take the RPG out of Paper Mario. I enjoyed Super Paper Mario for its blend of Action-RPG and platforming elements. With Sticker Star, they seem to hide all the RPG elements that people have enjoyed with the prior games. It might be in part to lack of detail in the review. There is no mention of HP increase or less damage taken throughout the game.

My biggest gripe with the game is the removal of basic attack commands from the game. While it is something different, I find it annoying. They did away with XP, but you have to grind for stickers in order to actually do anything. Giving up on evil to embrace another in my opinion.

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Drops Price of 3DS AC Adapter in Japan:

@Tsuchinoko The Nook and Kindle Fire are like the iPod/iPhone/iPads were you must use a first party USB adapter to charge the device if it is not connected to a computer. As for buying used adapters: Yes you can find used Nintendo chargers in Gamestop. I cannot find the price of one online but I believe they are around $7. As for the devices I mentioned above, I have yet to see a used one in a brick and mortar or online store.

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Drops Price of 3DS AC Adapter in Japan:

@YelloWishua I will openly state that this is an educated guess based on what I believe are normal manufacturing practices. As for the cost of buying a new adapter: I never said that was the problem. I said I don't find their reason for not including the adapter good enough. And I don't know about you, but I'd rather spend the $5 on a Subway sub than a AC adapter.

@Tsuchinoko Apple was just an example. Many other companies follow this practice. If you want to buy an extra charging adapter for your Nook or Kindle Fire, you must buy one direct from the manufacturer at an inflated price. And while you may not think the same way, I place the Nook and Kindle Fire on the same price point as the 3DS and other handheld gaming devices. Hell, most of the industry does.

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Drops Price of 3DS AC Adapter in Japan:

Again, my stance on this come from the idea that Nintendo is putting their financial gain over the customer, which is not something they are known for. The whole idea just leaves a sour taste in my mouth and the reasons they give are weak at best. Again this is in my opinion.

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Drops Price of 3DS AC Adapter in Japan:

@Tsuchinoko Cell phone chargers from the manufacturer usually aren't cheap. An USB charger for the iPhone/iPad/iPod is $29 direct from Apple. IMO that is not cheap. As for people throwing away AC Adapters as they don't need it: While this is a possibility, it is just as likely they will keep them. Hell people usually trade them in for a few bucks. Look at your local (corporate) video game retailer.

@Wheels2050 Are you sure that is why they don't include it or are you just making assumptions? As for the charger not being "free": I know this. I never said it wasn't going to cost someone money. I feel that Nintendo should bite the bullet and take the loss. I again believe the loss would be negotiable in the long run. Based on you what you said, including the adapter would cost $1. So it would cost Nintendo $1M to include it with 1M 3DS XLs. Now how much money are they making on the 1M 3DSes?

Edit: The comments here are starting to go wildly off topic. If you guys want to continue this discussion, may I suggest we move it to the forums?

GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Drops Price of 3DS AC Adapter in Japan:

@YelloWishua Manufactures do not usually sell accessories at that much of a loss. Also you had a very specific manufacturing cost which is rather odd. And Nintendo does have the AC adapters in bulk. They do make them, but I doubt very much that all the parts and labor to manufacture a single adapter cost them $15. Unless you have information to back up that claim, its just hearsay.

@Tsuchinoko So what about people who don't have an adapter?
