LN3000 commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

Right now, I'm buying most of my games as physical retail, only because I'm getting the 20% off through Best Buy's GCU.
If that runs out, then I'll go back to download-only, since the convenience of download is really awesome.
I just wish that downloading games was cheaper than buying the physical game. Since it's much more convenient to have the game as download.



LN3000 commented on Review: LEGO Dimensions (Wii U):

I'm probably going to be getting this eventually, because I'm a huge sucker and need the Portal, Doctor Who, and BTTF worlds. NEED THEM.



LN3000 commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

I don't see the issue with having it ported to another system. More games on more systems is a good thing.
I never really cared about this game, and I'm pretty much done caring about anything Ubisoft is putting out. Meh.



LN3000 commented on Splatoon 1.2.0 Update Promises A More Pleasant...:

@Pinkman another thing to consider is that everyone is going to naturally find the weapon that they prefer and feel most comfortable with. Not much incentive to change to a different weapon.
Someone who is highly comfortable with the aspects of one weapon can use it to much more benefit compared to someone who constantly switches to whatever is newest.

That in of itself could be a problem, as there should be more options to encourage people to try out other weapons. Items like headgear will level up with additional features, but weapons do not seem to do so, and once in a lobby you cannot change weapons between matches. I think that may be worth adding in a future update.

All in all, I'm surprised in how much I'm enjoying the game, and I have not found the level differences to detract from my enjoyment or ability to win/lose. It's pretty even, and comes down to practice, skill, strategy, and a bit of luck.

Just some random thoughts.



LN3000 commented on Video: This Harmless Exploit Will Help You Gra...:

This sounds like FAR too much work to be of any real value.
There are far far too many puzzles, though.
The limits Nintendo adds for how many coins you can earn per day slows things down as well.
There is no way anyone could ever obtain all the
puzzles through any normal sort of use of the 3DS.

I absolutely love the puzzles, and the whole StreetPass thing. I don't like how you can only have 10 games registered at once.

I use the Raspberry Pi trick to generate unlimited StreetPasses for me. It doesn't ruin any sort of enjoyment though, since there are, as I said, so MANY puzzles, that I am able to play for as long as I want through the games, without reaching "the end".

This just shows that Nintendo needs to change something, so people don't need to resort to convoluted roundabouts.

@Ron1212 Sorry to hear you're not enjoying the articles.
Myself, I find them quite amusing. Have you tried playing the game? It's a lot more fun than I expected. I've put in over 60 hours so far.

Otherwise, if you don't like something, feel free to not read it.



LN3000 commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

I wouldn't count on a WiiU release.
It would be great to have it on WiiU, but with a delay like this, it's like why bother? The vast majority of the people who want the game will already have it on another platform (or two.)
The story is good, the concept is good, but they need to do something about the controls and frustrating AI. I'd much rather them focus on improving the game for other platforms first, rather than a rushed WiiU port just to please the WiiU folks. (Who will then be disappointed by the rushed game, and then Ubisoft will be further justified against taking the WiiU seriously.)
It's a no-win situation, folks..

Let's just be happy that we have plenty of awesome first-party games from Nintendo.



LN3000 commented on Talking Point: Deconstructing Nintendo's Retai...:

It's pretty smart of Nintendo.
Not everyone wants to download, or is able to download, all of these games. So having a physical version of these games just makes sense, to the people who want to play the games, and plain business sense.

Personally, I have my 500GB external drive, and prefer directly downloading my games. I just recognize that not everyone has that same luxury ability.



LN3000 commented on Review: Myst (3DS):

Unfortunately, I agree that the DS / 3DS ports are really disappointing.
PLEASE, if you're reading this, don't let this versions score of a 1 to detract you from giving Myst a chance. The version on Steam, or on iPhone/iPad are well deserving of your gaming attention, and are ported directly by the original developers.
This is a game that has stood the test of time. (The whole series, in fact)
Just... not so much in terms of porting.



LN3000 commented on HMV Says You Can Now Preorder the Wii U in Bla...:

Kinda weird pre-ordering something without knowing how much it'll cost, or even when it'd be released.
Then again, I guess it doesn't do much difference pre-ordering now, rather than later. Although I never did understand 'partial' pre-orders either.

I'm not pre-ordering the WiiU. If I'm going to be getting it day-1, I'll be waiting in line for it at launch.



LN3000 commented on Feature: Remembering the Super Game Boy:

AHA! I KNEW I remembered playing Donkey Kong and Game & Watch Gallery in color, so I was confused when the 3DS Virtual Console versions were so flat and B&W.
I had emailed Nintendo support about it, and they seemed clueless about what I was talking about.
Glad to see that I am not crazy.



LN3000 commented on New Look Wii Released This Christmas:

Uh.... the Wii has ALWAYS been designed to sit either vertically OR horizontally. There is nothing SHOCKING or REVOLUTIONARY about 'that' bit of 'news'.

But like I said in the other article, I think it's rather lame if they're really pulling support for gamecube games. Maybe they're just updating the firmware to allow saving to SD cards...... ? #optimist



LN3000 commented on First Photo of New Look Wii Console:

Oh come on, I hope that this isn't going to be a main "redesign". I don't think Nintendo would pull a move like that and yank backward compatibility. They would have learned from Sony what a move that is. So hopefully that's just a bundle-only version, and not a "Ok everyone, here you go!" version.
