Linker2A03 commented on 3DS System Update Shuts Off Web Browser Exploi...:

Not exactly. The eShop was still tied to your own system's region. This exploit only allowed you to use 3DS game cards from any region. It was a pretty cool exploit, since you could play legitimate copies of games you purchased from anywhere in the world, but I'm going to guess that all the other perks the exploit had moved Nintendo to get something out even quicker than they might have intended, with Pokémon Shuffle being the biggest reason for the update.

Or, it normally takes them this long to work on an update, no matter how big or small.



Linker2A03 commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:


Well, Jet Set Radio did start out in Shibuya-cho, and the caption states "if this were Tokyo, the plaza would sort of be like Shibuya. I guess their cities aren't so different from our own!"

That could be it, or you might be talking about the art style. Either way, I agree.



Linker2A03 commented on Weirdness: Researchers Working on Mario Artifi...:

"If I jump on Goomba, then it maybe dies."

No, Mario. There is no "maybe." It totally died.

This project is pretty cool, otherwise. Unfortunately, I hate to be the guy that asks 'what is up with the wrong notes in the song?'



Linker2A03 commented on Upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Pa...:

I've read that, in the Wii U version of Smash Bros., after Rosalina loses a Luma, she has to wait about 13 seconds before another one appears. That's five more seconds than what's currently on the 3DS version(8 seconds). I'm going to guess that this could be one of the issues that needed balancing.



Linker2A03 commented on Almost 50 Different System Themes Revealed Pri...:

Wow. The fact that the sample Mario character themes shown at Nintendo's site opted to put Rosalina's theme as an example instead of one featuring the well-known character Princess Peach, is somewhat telling of Rosalina's popularity, as of late. It's usually Mario, Yoshi and Peach, with Luigi making a few appearances. Not Mario, Yoshi and Rosalina.

Anyway, I can't wait to grab some of these themes. I do wish I could create my own, though.



Linker2A03 commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

I guess that, judging from the complaints about the roster, this game isn't everyone's cup of tea. I don't see how, though. When's the last time anyone has had a chance to see an official product featuring Mario, Pac-Man, Sonic, and Mega Man... all in the same game?

I'm stoked about the possible inclusion of Duck Hunt, as well.



Linker2A03 commented on System Update 8.1.0-19 Now Available on 3DS:

I think I know what these updates are for! Nintendo's fighting the possible dizziness that could come from using the 3DS, by making it even MORE stable!

Now I'm that much closer to being able to do consecutive, non-stop 1440 degree rotations while playing my 3DS, without getting dizzy!



Linker2A03 commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

No screenshots anymore? Aww, that's a bummer, but I totally understand the reason for it. However, I do remember when I first visited the Comic Workshop website that, in the FAQ section, they had a Miiverse question(strangely, that entire question has been removed, as of recent).

The answer was pretty much the same as the one for sharing between friends, only it said "Given that Comic Workshop gives you the opportunity to make drawings without limit and to protect minors, we are sorry to say that is not possible..." (I can't remember how it was put after that, but I do remember that the first part of the answer was nearly identical to the response about sharing between friends).

It appears that a mistake was made, and Comic Workshop was allowed to post screenshots on Miiverse, when it was never the developer's intention to do so, probably due to its photo-sharing capabilities more than anything else(that may be why Colors! 3D isn't allowed to do this, as well).

Either way, think about what people are getting upset over: Posting shrunken images of their well-made comics on Miiverse that are 400x240 pixels large, to be exact(less than half the maximum size limit for comics on the app), a horrible resolution for detailed comics). And then, more than likely, those same comics would only get washed away quickly in the sea of posts, so all that work goes to waste! I wouldn't wish this on anyone!

It's possible that they dodged a bullet, because if something terrible did go down on Miiverse, knowing Nintendo, they could've shut the whole thing down for everyone! Just be glad that things aren't worse than they are now, because they could very well be.



Linker2A03 commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Hooks In Permanent Price Dr...:

I had a feeling that it was an awesome game, but I wasn't sure of the $29.99 price tag. Once the $10 discount happened, I was still on the fence, until the last few hours of the sale. I told myself "if you can't forget about this, buy it."

Long story short, I would've paid the full $29,99 for the game, had I known just how awesome this game was before hand. It definitely takes a lot of skill to complete the levels, but do yourself a favor and get this game, when you get the chance.

Oh yeah, the soundtrack has been stuck in my head since I've purchased the game, too. Just about everything in the game has a nice and friendly atmosphere to it, which is what I love most about it. It's now one of my favorite platform games of all-time.



Linker2A03 commented on Comic Workshop Coming to 3DS eShop on 17th Jul...:

Aside from the max pixel size being 896, this looks like it'll be leagues better than Colors! 3D, at least for what I want to do. All of the controls here are comparable to art programs you can use on a PC, only it's in portable format... something I've wanted since, well, forever! Counting the days down, now...



Linker2A03 commented on A Fresh Super Mario Bros. Infinite Lives Trick...:

Along with what ocarinaoftime just posted, if you run out of time, you can repeat the same glitch with Luigi again. Be warned that you can only repeat this trick for so many times due the amount of lives that Luigi has in store, since you need him in the first place. Once Luigi loses his last life, though, you can no longer accomplish this trick.

If there was a 1up mushroom in World 5-2 for Luigi, this could potentially be an infinite lives glitch for Mario, but the absence of said mushroom is what's stopping it from being that way.



Linker2A03 commented on A Fresh Super Mario Bros. Infinite Lives Trick...:

This trick is possible without having to resort to TAS. In fact, not only have I done this myself, I've posted this on Miiverse, giving credit to the person who discovered it, of course.

You just have to make sure that Luigi is automatically climbing the vine while getting hit in order for this to work. The game gets tricked into thinking that the automatic sequence is continuing as normal, with the only break in between being the new area in the clouds. It's only thinking of making sure that the very next area continues the sequence, but in this case, it's Mario who has the next area, not Luigi.
