I am loving what Nintendo has shown us thus far! As much as I love my little XL I'll probably being grabbing one of the New Standard 3DS, I have fallen in love with black one (the face buttons stand out yet still retain a classy Nintendo look). And the customizable is that only at 4%!??!??!!??!!?!??!??!?!?!??!?!??! Easily the one reason swaying me away from the XL. Either way I can't wait, going to be good.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

I'll repeating a lot from my other post, but man, I haven't been this hyped for a new handheld for years! The original was great and all and I wasn't too pleased when Nintendo dropped the price or announced the XL. As my picture shows :P I did end up getting an XL about 6 months post launch and fell in love with it. 2DS, eh didn't care, but I got one for $35 (with Pokemon Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) from my brother so huzzah. This though.... this handheld looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two models to choose from day 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Faceplates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gah! The hype is real! As I said before Nintendo and their stopgap handhelds (GBC and DSi) are some of my favorite handhelds OF ALL TIME! I think we should look at this revision more like the GBC then the DSi....however I doubt (we are still so early in this development) beyond Xenoblade that the New 3DS will get many, good big name exclusives. So everyone keep your pants on! I will be getting this (and trading in that 2DS) and Xenoblade, this will be a nice holdover till the 4DS-Boy :D



HandheldGuru97 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles Coming to 3DS in Japan:

Well, well...I likely will never get or play the Wii version simply because I prefer handheld gaming, I can see the graphics have been scaled down, but I want to play Xenoblade so I will be getting this and one of the New 3DSes



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Shows Off 38 "Kisekae Plate" Changeab...:

My God its the Gameboy Micro 2.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love my little GBM, but the faceplates are the hardest thing to find for it, if this wasn't a feature I'd go right to the New XL, but this changes...everything. :P



HandheldGuru97 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Ha! To think I thought old Ninty would get through the year without announcing a new 3DS boy oh boy I was wrong! Still...this (from what I know about the Gameboy and DS lifespans) is the first time Nintendo has released 4(!!!!!) (Really 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) handhelds in one handhelds lifespan very odd, but the times are a changin...Well I ain't gonna lie Nintendo and stopgap handhelds tend to be phenomenal (GBC and DSi come to mind) so I will be getting one. Especially considering that Xenoblade is only playable on that :P Now the real question is I went from launch day model to XL...but to go small again or stay big???? Eh I got a few months...but those faceplates though... :D



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

Soooooooooooooooo is this Nintendo is DOOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or is Nintendo "Saved"...nope clearly Nintendo is forever doomed :P all those great consoles (Gameboy Advance, SNES, DS, Gameboy, Gamecube) and games (Super Mario Bros, SMB3, Super Mario World, LoZ ALttP, LoZ OoT, SM64, Galaxy 1 and 2, Pokemon Silver and Gold, Super Metroid, Earthbound, Metroid Prime, LoZ WW, and on and on!!!!!!!!!) Didn't happen :P :P :P
(In all seriousness this isn't that big of a deal folks! Pokemon been on IOS before this isn't the end of Pokemon or Nintendo... so don't go OMG WORLDS ENDING!!!!!!!!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Hyrule Warriors Artbook Catches The Eye Wi...:

Wow really people, really, really??? Is this really happening in 2014? A genderswapped Link would freshen up and add dare I say a new twist to the classic Zelda formula. Would playing as a female Link really change the core gameplay??? NO! And is what is most important not whether or not you're playing as a boy or a girl, good gameplay. A female or male or somewhere in between Link wouldn't and shouldn't kill The Legend of Zelda series.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

Some many, many great games on the Game Boy. I went for Pokémon, but Tetris, Link's Awakening (DX), 6 Golden Coins and Donkey Kong are all right up there for me at least. Quite honestly its pretty hard to not find something you'll love on the Gray Brick (or the Pocket or even the Color!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on WayForward Bringing GBC Classic Xtreme Sports ...:

Awesome! I just picked this cart up a few days actually, but I might double dip just to have a manual :P So far from what I've played it is really, really fun. Control is a bit wonky and I keep forgetting how control the games....XD Love graphics, music is okay for what it is though it works. Definitely gives off a Xtreme late 90's early 00's vibe. I recommend it highly!



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Game Boy is 25 Years Old in North America:

I for one came onto the Game Boy scene far, far later than most. I am only 16 so naturally I was born right around the end of the Original's lifespan and just before the Pokémon cult of the late 1990's began :P My first handheld seven years later in 2004 was the Gameboy Advance SP. I got into collecting handhelds little over four years ago with...the Gameboy Micro. I got the Color and Original within a month of each other in fall of 2011(october and November respectfully, yes the Color came first) and the rest they say is, well, history. Today I own north of 18+ handhelds and my Gameboy Original/Color game collection is by far the largest retro handheld game collection I have (in close-ish 2nd in the Advance and a distant 3rd is my Neo Geo Pocket Color or Atari Lynx...) So many brilliant and fun games, I will admit I seldom play on the Original, but since getting a and white has been in baby! The Color is still my favorite of all the 'Boys, but the Original definitely has its place :) Happy birthday Game Boy! Here is to another 25 years of pea green handheld gaming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Fantasy Life Adventure Begins in Europe on...:

WHY MUST EUROPE GET THIS GAME A MONTH EARLY!?!?!??!?!??!?!??!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? least you guys won't get ORAS until a week after the west :) Revenge.....oh well, I'll have me some Theatrhythm CC and Super Smash 3D to keep me happy until October 24.....



HandheldGuru97 commented on Ubisoft Confirms Exclusive 3DS Mode for Tetris...:

I'll keep an eye on this, but I loved Axis back 2011 and still play it to this day so probably not. Sure it isn't Tetris DS, but it is a very solid Tetris game. This looks pretty good, disappointed there won't be a Wii U version...but once I get my NES fixed I'll have plenty of console Tetris fun to last a good while!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Pokémon Trading Card Game (3DS eShop ...:

I've got $5 in my eShop account waiting for it to hit the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sadly I have never played this little jewel, I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!! Also...could @Squidzilla maybe find a better banner???? :P I know it may seem trivial, but this game came out way back in Gen I, the banner in question is from Gen III...:P I don't know it just...bugs me...



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

Ummmmm well this is a surprise, not even a calendar!??!?!??!?? Odd...still I am glad I hit Platinum there 3 games up there that I want and have yet to get on my old U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NES Remix, Doc Luigi, and of course Earthbound. I'll head over to my DDP page and see how many points I need to hit another $5 eShop card. Probably NES Remix, still glad we're getting something!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feast Your Eyes On The Official Super Smash Br...:

"And welcome back, Captain Falcon!! When are you ever getting a new game of your own?"
Sakurai, biggest troll in the history of the known gaming world! (Maybe he knows something we don't....????? :O
Glad, not surprised, that Lucina is in. I am surprised Robin is in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Been thinking of replaying Awaking for some time, Permadeath stopped me long ago on Chapter 11 or 12 I think...hate to say it 2nd play through I am doing it on easy (save Permadeath for a 3rd playthrough)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

You know I like it. Ubisoft has done good with the U, Splinter Cell, 2 Assassins Creed games, ZombiU, Child of Light, some Just Dance (whether you like it or not it is something...) and don't forget they could've canceled Watch Dogs, they know they'll lose money...but it is still coming out. Sure the whole Rayman thing was a debacle and I'm not happy by it either, it is still one of the best games on the U. So there is my 2 cents on this trophy.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Cave Story 3D to Arrive on 3DS eShop in North ...:

I for one got this way back in 2011 around the original launch for $30!!!!!!!! :D Now it is the rarest game on the 3DS (released in North America at least). I for one loved it, but the graphics sure aren't for everyone. It is nice to play a different graphic style of the same old Cave Story. For those that have + already downloaded...don't go for this one from what I've heard that has more content.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Tricky, tricky. I've beaten Phantom Hourglass, a Link Between Worlds, Fourswords Anniversary and OoT 3D. I've played Skyward Sword, The Legend of Zelda, and just started Windwaker HD.....tough question! I'll think on it and vote on this later!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Dragon Quest X Is Now Adventuring Onto 3DS:

I need this in my life....ANY VERSION WILL DO AT THIS POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damnit SquareEnix why have you fallen soooooooooooooooo hard!??!?!!?!??!?!?!??!?!??!? At least give me VII, then I can at least die sorta happy :P



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Summe...:

Lets see...I'll be getting:

Smash 3D (and U for Christmas)
Pokémon Alpha Sapphire
Fantasy Life
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call
Story of Seasons

Harvest Moon the Lost Valley
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
Not as bad as it looked earlier this year no 2013, but hey this isn't to bad especially considering Fantasy Life is coming out here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
