Michi commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

I'm EXTREMELY disappointed that there's no US release of the regular-size New 3DS. I bought one when I moved to Japan, and having it side by side with my US XL, I really dislike the XL. The screen is TOO big abd pixelated, whereas the mid-sized New 3DS is perfectly balanced. Also the New 3DS is drastically lighter and feels better. Not to mention the faceplates here in Japan are really nice. (Also, the moved Power Button and game-slot cause fewer accidents than the original. My game would eject in my purse constantly with the XL, but it hasn't ever with New 3DS)

I was going to import a US New 3DS and transfer everything off the XL... but now I'll stick with the old model instead. Region-locking has stopped me from buying Wii U, now this has stopped me from buying a second New 3DS.

Michi commented on Feature: Celebrating 25 Years Of A Legendary F...:

I've been replaying this recently, using only one Female Human and one Female Mutant. My only real complaint is how annoying it is to keep up with the random spell changes after a battle. You have to look at the spells and save after every battle to keep from losing the best magic.

Michi commented on This Metroid Game Boy Advance Design is a Treat:

Am I the only one who finds it a little bit awkward this this GBA features Samus' original armor color when the mod was released in honor of Fusion...where her armor color was completely different? If they'd released it for Zero Mission, then ok, lol.

Michi commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

Nintendo is definitely missing out. Falcom put tons of soundtracks from their entire back catalog of CDs onto iTunes, and as a result I've spent infinitely more money than I ever would have trying to buy physical import CDs. There's no need to torrent any Falcom music ever thanks to their iTunes support (unless you're just massively poor), and I think Nintendo could make a lot of quick money by following suit. Furthermore, I think this would fit in with their strategy of using smartphones to get people interested in Nintendo products without putting actual games on the platform. VERY missed opportunity, here!

This pad has all the buttons of the 3DS, AND a touchscreen. AND he said they wanted a dual-screen gaming experience. Imagine if this thing ends up being DS/3DS compatible with an HD upscaler? They have EVERYTHING they need to do it.

Michi commented on Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition...:

This is fantastic! The collectors box and booklets and things look really nice, the soundtrack is cool (even if it isn't massive or anything) and the game...man I've been waiting to play this game again. I always loved the All-Stars version of these, so I really can't wait. $30 is so reasonable, too! Thanks Nintendo!

Michi commented on Hudson Not Abandoning Virtual Console After All?:

I definitely want to see these games here, with major emphasis on Dracula X. Yes, I have it on the PSP, but I just don't care for the way it emulates on that system.
