I need Fatalis parts that aren't from Crimson or, surprisingly, White Fatalis either.

I wanna max my dual element dual blades and a few other things, and need plain Jane Fatalis parts. Ones that don't say OLD in front of their names. I have no idea where to get these parts, but I've been waiting since launch to get them and make all sorts of stuff

@Ventilator
I don't think it's gonna be a GREAT game. I mean, clearly it's no classic. But I don't think it's as bad as these reviewers have made it out to be. I expect somewhere along the lines of Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge. A decent game, not great but enjoyable if you're a fan of the genre.

And if it does turn out to suck, so be it. But I'd rather see for myself.

Can't blame em, Runbow really is a solid game. MUCH better than I thought it would be. Sometimes games are more than the sum of their parts- Runbow is a good example of this.

JaxonH commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd September (North America):

Decent week all around. Gunman Clive Collection and 2 VC releases worth picking up, and right off the back of double dose of Sin & Punishment.

I'm still waiting on Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon (er.. wait, that came out already didn't it?) and Metroid Zero Mission.

But any week we get multiple VC releases, I'm not gonna complain.

Ya know, the Nintendo of 5 years ago would have NEVER done something like this. Heck, the Nintendo of just 3 years ago even.

I'm noticing incredible progress by Nintendo on multiple fronts these past few years. It's just a bunch of little things that I'm seeing, and I just was thinking about it like wow, Nintendo's not the same company they were a few years ago. The eShop, Network Accounts, YouTube personality collabs, a Mario level editor, smartphone games, DLC (thank goodness they finally got with it on that one- it's nice seeing a great game expounded upon)... that's an incredible amount of forward progress for a company so reluctant to change.

Idk, just an observation I guess. I think the company is also about to change a whole lot more with the new leadership. If you compare the Yamauchi Nintendo to the Iwata Nintendo, there's actually a pretty stark contrast in direction. And that was with Yamauchi HAND PICKING his successor! Now, imagine how much that direction can turn having not been prepared for regime change.

These stages are actually all surprisingly good! Gosh dang now my excitement cannot be contained! I took off work the 11th- if my copy doesn't arrive in the mail that day I'm going to have to go out and buy a 2nd copy at a store or something, because I just can't wait any longer! Maybe I'll buy digitally and preload if it's not going to arrive that day. This is a game I would love to have access to at all times without a disc.

@Captain_Gonru
Well, most people have moved past Portal seeing how old it is. Not me- I love those games and unfortunately, despite owning all 3 platforms and both handhelds, not one of them can play Portal and Portal 2. It was my desire to see the game release on Vita for years, but I think I have finally given up on that.

My only hope of ever playing the games again lies in X1 backwards compatibility. But I doubt Valve will see it added to the list.

Hmm, if you can't resist from spending more than maybe not a good idea. But paying more than you have to is perhaps not the best deterrent to spending more...but that's something only you can answer for yourself.

Enjoy your vacation, and when you get back I'll be looking forward to playing some levels you and your kids create in Mario Maker. If you wanna join when you get back, just download the LINE app on your phone, create an account and @ me your ID. Then I'll friend you and add you to the chat.

Strangely enough I think you cheer this place up. In you're own way of course

@Wizardo
Unfortunately it's not an extra. I am keeping one sealed and opening one. You'll have plenty of opportunity to grab one at one of the other retailers though. If you don't know how to track, you can always keep your ear to the subreddits and watch for updates, or do it the old fashioned way- check Target/BestBuy/Walmart/TRU websites every so often. Usually I'll keep a tab open for each website I'm monitoring and just refresh the page on my phone every so often.

Also, sign up for notifications on Amazon for when it comes back in stock. And it WILL come back in stock, might be closer to release when it happens (like a few weeks away from release), but they ALWAYS take a 2nd round due to cancellations and confirmed stock levels.

Have you signed up for Gamers Club Unlocked yet at BestBuy? If not you really should. It saves you 20% on every new game for 2 entire years, and for just $30.

We plan to catch that Xenoblade CE at BestBuy. If you join our LINE and get a preorder in with us as a GCU member, that would pay for all but $10 of the sub price ($79.99 with GCU so $20 off). And one more game would save you $12 so you'd already be profiting.

We know how to play the game. It's time we bring you in as our apprentice and teach you "the way". BB sells out fast use to everyone wanting to take advantage of GCU discount. So we lock in a preorder at Amazon just in case, but assuming we grab one at BestBuy we'll just cancel those Amazon orders.

Only $80 for that life size Link statue lol? Not bad! That may be the Comic Con Link actually. They had one that size for around $60-80 at Comic Con and I can't imagine too many manufacturers make a Godzilla size Link.

You should buy that and set it on your kitchen table to display like how people have a vase of flowers on their table lol. See what the old lady think about that

JaxonH commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

10. And well deserved it seems.

Mario platforming is one of the most entertaining genres of game ever conceived, and due to created content will still be worth every penny 20 years from now. What's more, Mario Maker ensures Nintendo's legacy lives on with gamers forever, no matter what happens in the future.

I am so hyped beyond belief- this is what I've been waiting for, for a long, long time. It just took me a while to realize it.

It released 2 days ago actually. They're not available anywhere but eBay anymore. You had to preorder way in advance. Although the day of release, they went on sale at Otaku Mode. If you want one though, I do have an extra coming from eBay (I ordered there before they went on sale at Otaku). If you wanna buy that one you can have it for what I paid, which was a pretty good price actually- just $5 more than what Otaku Mode sold them for.

Well, the whole issue for you was getting notice right? As long as you get notice of when stuff goes live you're good. See, another reason you should have joined the amiibo goon squad. It's not all amiibo ya know. We also have a deals alert chat for deals (like today scored eShop and PSN cards for 10% off), website glitches where you can get 2 games for like $20, preorder alerts for NON amiibo items- we were alerted to these New 3DS models before even GameStop knew they were selling them and other noteworthy deals and Collector Edition alerts. And we have a gaming chat for playing Splatoon, Gears Ultimate, Mario Kart, Call of Duty... Whatever game we wanna play online together.

Anyways, not a bad list for 3DS games. At least Fire Emblem Awakening is in there. Just make sure to get Fates, probably both versions (who wants less of the greatest game ever made? Absolutely no one! Buy both!)

And if you didn't have Zelda Link Between Worlds on your list, you really need to edit that in right after Fire Emblem. It is my favorite Zelda I've ever played. Others of note are Etrian Odyssey Fafnir Knight, Mario Golf World Tour (trust me it's excellent, WAY more than you expect), Star a Fox 64 (playing this one in 3D should be mandatory for your 3DS owners entrance exam), Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (give this one a chance, trust me- it's come a long way from what you played on Wii), Little Battlers eXperience (this one surprised me- it's the game I'm playing now and it's CHOICE).

Also, Tales of the Abyss is like the greatest Tales game ever made, and there's Legend of Legacy coming out next month in a BEAUTIFUL collectors edition for just $40 ($31.99 with GCU @BB, this one is huge like Bravely Default), and Final Fantasy Explorers releases in January if you wanna get down on some playtime with me.

And of course don't miss Resident Evil Revelations, or Mario Kart 7 or Smash Bros, and of course Code Name STEAM if you liked the demo. It was on sale today for just $20 ($15.99 with GCU). And you can never go wrong with Ocarina or Majoras Mask, and games like Kirby and Yoshi are decent ebough.

And don't forget about the eShop! Mario vs DK Tipping Stars is crossbuy, remember (and FANTASTIC). Pushmo, Crashmo and Stretchmo are choice, Box Boy is absolutely brilliant (black and white box platformer by HAL Labratories), Dr Mario Miracle Cure is great if you're a Dr Mario fan, Shantae Pirates Curse and Shovel Knight were meant to be played in 3D, and you would really dig the Pokemon free to play I think.

Got all that?

I know I spoke to you earlier but I was just now reading more of your comments and I'm really blown away by your positive attitude and friendly approach.. You really set a great example and I believe are a model member of the site. I'm not sure how many people will read your comments or even take them to heart, but know that you'd have at least rubbed off on one person here, and I think I'm going to try to learn from your positive outreach.

So how expensive are games for a PAL handheld? One of the benefits of playing games in my own region (NA) is that I can buy them for 20% off at Best Buy through gamers club unlocked membership. I have considered buying a PAL handheld for some time, but am curious how expensive it is to buy games, and where the cheapest place is that you personally found. I know I could probably just buy on one of the EU Amazon sites, but that $15 shipping kills any value. Another option would be Play-Asia since they sell all regions of games. But perhaps I'm missing a few places that you know of?

@Ayronom
That's for the judge and/or jury to decide. In this country we give all citizens a trial before sentencing, which also serves as an opportunity to confirm or deny guilt. Assuming they will be found guilty (and they will), they will be sentenced, potentially to a MUCH longer period of time than 4 months or even 1 year. This 4 month period was merely the time until the next court proceeding (perhaps the trial). Not the sentence itself.

Let the system work. They will see judgement, rest assured in that, but court proceedings must play out first. In the meantime, they are behind bars where they cannot hurt the public.

JaxonH commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

Ok, so when Animal Crossing New Leaf released I wasn't really that interested. But, I gave it a chance as I ALWAYS try to expand my gaming horizons with new types of games, even if they're games I think I won't enjoy. And I've found some pretty amazing games by this personal policy of mine. To my surprise, Animal Crossing was a really fun game.

Now here we are 2 years later and I'm in the same situation. I like Animal Crossing but this game really doesn't seem to do it for me. Nonetheless, I'm giving it a go, and if I don't like it then so be it. At least I found out for myself.

I will say it looks much more appealing than it did when it was announced, for what that's worth. I will NOT be indulging in the Amiibo Cards though. Even I have a line I won't cross.

Sin & Punishment 2 Star Successor on Wii is the greatest rail shooter I've ever played. And I've been gaming for a long time.

I never did get around to playing this one though, so I went ahead and bought it and hope to squeeze it in soon enough

Oh I wasnt worked up, I know it may have sounded like it but that's just me being me.

If I were you, I'd sub to Nintendo of America's twitter account. Then go on desktop twitter account and have emails forwarded as text messages and assign a special ringtone. Then you'll be in the know, the moment stuff gets announced.

Even if they announce elsewhere I'm pretty sure the tweets are near simultaneous, if not first.

Good Smile is definitely pricy, but you can get them elsewhere for around $29 each- of course that's not including shipping but neither is this.

And for the record, the Mega Man does look a little odd to me too, even as a Nendoroid. But it's Mega Man, and a few of the poses look decent.

Only one we're waiting on now is Marth.

No, I didn't. I said not everyone does. Never specifically said you did.

The bottom line is, don't insult people just because they buy something you claim to not want. If you don't want it don't buy it. But don't ridicule others for what they enjoy. And that's all there is to it

The only ones who say it about me are the very ones I see as chronically complaining. And I know this may be news to you but there's an entire group of members who feel you (among a few others) only come here to complain. They may not have told you directly, but I'm definitely not the only one who thinks so. The ones who complain a lot never see themselves as doing so, but if those people would look at their activity on the other sites and see it's not negative- in fact it's normal, maybe they would see just how much the negatiiy stands out here.

Also, usually the people I regard as chronic complainers are much more abrasive and A type personality, and much more likely to all anyone who dissents a fanboy for "defending Nintendo" (even if it's an unreasonable accusation). The ones on the other end who see people like you as only coming here to voice discontent, are much more passive and less likely to tell you first hand

You can apply whatever label to me you so desire. Because I apply the "chronic complainer Nintendo hater" label to you, and until I see something different that won't go away.

And you probably won't see me acting otherwise because the illegitimate complaints on this site are not going away, in fact they're getting worse.

But maybe the day I see people like you go cause a similar ruckus at PushSquare or PureXbox, perhaps then you'll have the opportunity to see me be a "fanboy" for them too. At least then I can go for hat tricks on all 3 sites, the fanboy of all 3 consoles. And you can prove you don't just single out Nintendo to complain about, but that you just complain a lot in general about everyone.

I think the thing is is a lot of people don't take things as seriously. Or they simply accept the fact that they cannot change certain things and so why waste energy getting upset about it. It's why some people are activists in this world- because they insist they can make change, while others accept the world as it is and see no reason to complain- they are the type that make lemonade out of lemons and always have a smile on their face.

And I think a lot of people don't have a problem with criticism, it's just the manner in which it's executed. For example people make some good arguments against region locking, people also have some legitimate complaints about amiibo stock, and people definitely have some legitimate complaints about the excess number of board games we've gotten this generation and lack of LE's (that's my biggest right there). There are plenty of legitimate critiques and complaints and I think most people don't take issue with that. I think what they take issue with- and this is certainly true for me- is the manner in which people complain.

It's one thing to say "Ya know, I really disagree with this, think it's a bad idea because X, Y, Z" but it's another thing to say "Stupid Nintendo and their archaic policies, this is such a troll move by Nintendo, they never learn, this is why Wii U is dead, etc etc etc"

They say tone is 90% of communication. And I think therein lies the problem.

@ikki5
That's very true you do see that sort of thing on almost every other website. I'm not disagreeing that the reason for it is probably the smaller user base, but nonetheless I am pointing out that it doesn't happen over there which is why you don't see me responding over there like I do here.

Is just one of those things that gets under my skin, and it coincidentally only seems to happen on this site and not on the other two. When I go to this other Nintendo fan site I'm known as the Sony fanboy because I'm always calling out these drones who make comments like "Sony is a racist company and all third party games are garbage" etc etc. i'm sure you can imagine all the stuff they come up with and they talk hella sh***. And just like here that sort of thing really gets under my skin and I call those people up for and as a result I'm known as the Sony fanboy. Ironic seeing as some call me a Nintendo fanboy here.

The point I'm getting at is that I only respond to those outlandish comments, because they really bug the hell out of me to see people trying to complain as much as possible and make it seem like the situation is as bad as it could possibly be. But I do it on all sides- you just happen to only see the side where I'm in favor of Nintendo. As hard as this may be for you to believe I make the exact same counter arguments with Nintendo fanboys who talk crap about Sony and Microsoft. I just don't like fanboys who hate on other consoles.

I don't like it when people talk crap about Sony, talk crap about MS, or talk crap about Nintendo. I just don't like people talking crap about these platforms, they have a vested interest in making that platform seem like the devil itself. And a lot of people do that.

@TwilightAngel
Well first of all Shovel Knight isn't Nintendo at all. It's a third-party game and a third-party Amiibo. So I wasn't defending Nintendo at all, yet you failed to recognize that difference. And I made the argument I did was because I genuinely feel that it's not a problem if the game was fully realized already.

I genuinely understand where people like you were coming from with their frustrations about not finding stock. And you would see me empathizing with people like you more if it weren't for all the insanely hateful comments that mask over that. If everyone on the site was making rational statements and saying OK here's how I feel, I don't agree with this because reasons A B and C then you would see me making responses that are more levelheaded and understanding the other side's argument. But the problem is people aren't- they lose their temper and start cursing and complaining like the sky is falling over every little tiny thing.

@ikki5
I understand that's how it appears to you but that's also why you shouldn't always judge a book by its cover. The noticeable difference between this site and PushSquare, is you don't have the flurry of insanely out of control comments on that site like you do here. People are more rational over there and therefore I'm more rational and can see their point of view. But here when I go to any given article I'm guaranteed to see 20 to 30 people flipping there sh*** over some tiny little thing that could easily just be shrugged off. And THAT is why you see me respond to those comments a lot. When people stop flipping out and acting like the world is coming to a crashing halt because a full game is getting an extra Amiibo feature, or because Nintendo's not going to publish a game, and then turn around and complain that they do publish the game, when you see people stop acting like every single little thing is the end of the world that's when you'll see me stop responding to those crazy comments and it won't seem like I'm white knighting to you any more.

Truth of the matter is I've got quite a few complaints of my own that I would love to voice but I can't because I'm too busy trying to talk some sense into people that are acting like it's the end of the world because a game got a 3 week delay, or whatever the particular complaint of the day is.

It's most definitely your right to do with your money as you please, as it is mine. And there's no reason we should be mocked and ridiculed for it on this site. What possesses a person to think that's okay is beyond me.

What on earth are you talking about? Nintendo of America did tweet this- how do you think the information first got out? It says right there in the very first sentence of the article that "Nintendo of America confirmed" (if any information was released before this it's news to me)

https://mobile.twitter.com/NintendoAmerica

All major news and information for NA is now coming from Nintendo's Twitter account. Xenoblade Chronicles X CE was also announced by tweet. The Walmart exclusive Modern 8-bit Mario Amiibo Wii U Mario Maker bundle (good grief that was a long name) was also first announced by tweet. That's how it works now- they announce by tweet and then it goes live on retailers' websites. Of course being a GameStop exclusive was not announced by Nintendo- that information did indeed come from GameStop.

EDIT: I suppose you are correct with regard to the LE Zelda New 3DS XL, but those get announced all the time by retailers, often times with consumers finding out when it goes live on their website. I was referring to the big news, the news of the original model coming to NA. I should have been more clear about that.
