Amazon prime had it for $10 off, so you get two amiibos, the game and 3 cards all for about $50 bucks. I've been playing it with my wife and it's fun for us. A relaxing game with fun AC visuals and style. I'll enjoy it for what it is, but will go back to splatoon or (soon) to XBC depending upon the mood.



Jake_homs commented on Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo Stampedes onto Shelves ...:

So wait.... they give us a release date for a big Yoshi Amiibo, but we don't have a release date for the 3 mini ones (in NA, that is)? I can only assume that they'll launch on the date of the game's release in October, but did they ever officially say that, or can you pre-order it anywhere yet? I've only seen the Yoshi's Woolly World game listed so far on the normal sites.



Jake_homs commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Hints at Smaller New Nintendo...:

I am one of those who would have been a Day-1 purchaser, if only they had the base model available in NA. I have a 3DS XL and would prefer a smaller, more portable one (with the faceplates to boot!) so I have successfully held out (and will continue to do so) until the base model is released. This is good news from Reggie, and IMHO, I'd almost take it as concrete evidence that it'll be out sooner than later. Fingers crossed!



Jake_homs commented on Standard-Sized New Nintendo 3DS Photos Emerge ...:

This will be an immediate for me preorder if it comes to NA. I'm deliberately holding out for this and not buying the XL model. While it's a drop in the bucket of $ Nintendo is getting, I'm putting my money where my mouth is, so to speak, and holding out until the smaller version arrives. Fingers crossed!



Jake_homs commented on Video: New LEGO Jurassic World Trailer Builds ...:

I can't wait for this game!!! I loved the original movie back when I was a teen, and can't wait for the upcoming movie this year. Combine that with Legos, and I don't care what the rating is, it's an immediate purchase for me! I have a feeling I'll be playing it more than my son.



Jake_homs commented on Chrono Trigger Turns 20, but is Ultimately Tim...:

I re-play this about every 2 years. It's a perfect game in all ways, and one that never gets dull. It contains an excellent balance of clever story, great artwork, fun and engaging combat and great armor and weapons to boot! I can't get enough of this game and to this day I still cherish my SNES copy.

Little King's Story is fantastic! I'm all for bringing this to the eShop for others to enjoy. I'd also recommend Beyond Good and Evil, another great title that many missed. Finally, I love Zelda games more than anything, but I just couldn't do Skyward Sword due to the control mechanics. I'm sure it's a great game, but for me, I could never get into it and just found myself more frustrated than its worth. With that said, if they would/could change to allow a controller to be used, I'd play it in a heartbeat. I'm sure that'd take away a lot from the game, so I'm not holding my breath.



Jake_homs commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

As I've mentioned in other posts, I have a current XL but yes, I was hoping to upgrade to the new Standard 3DS. Unfortunately, being in NA, that's not possible currently so my plan is just to wait and hope that does get released in time. My XL still works well enough but I want a newer one (with all the 'bells and whistles') but also get a more portable feel. Here's hoping in time that'll be available here in the states.



Jake_homs commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

It was a poor decision not to release the standard model. I have a current XL but wanted to downsize to a new 3DS, and liked the screen size being between a current 3DS and XL (not to mention the faceplates and button colors). I am disappointed and they lost an immediate pre-order from me. I'll stick with my current XL until they change their minds in the near future (hopefully) and release the standard model.



Jake_homs commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

As others have said, I'm disappointed they didn't offer NA the smaller 3DS version. I too wanted it for the more "pocketable" size as well as the great buttons. It would have been a no-brainer pre-order for me, now I'm left unsure if I should just buy one now or wait for a possible release of the smaller version.



Jake_homs commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I've already pledged to Blossom Tales! Really hope this gets funded, and as you guys said, Castle Pixel (the dev) said even if it doesn't hit the high Wii-U stretch goal, it'll most likely still be planned! Can't wait!



Jake_homs commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

I was the Nintendo fan, and my cousin (only a month younger than I) was the Sega fan. Lots of good Nintendo memories, and right up there were the ones with Sonic on the Genesis. Quite fun!
