I find myself buying lots of Indies on the WiiU. Even if they're on Steam I can't find them, it's easier to track them down on the WiiU. And the games usually feel more natural on the console (or the 3DS, really.)

Mommar commented on Review: Titan Attacks (3DS eShop):

I just bought this over the weekend, as someone who ONLY plays games on the 3DS in 3D I actually never realized it wasn't in 3D until reading this review. It simply wasn't a concern to me. I find it a rather fun little time waster, however.

Trust me, giving fans warning and time doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Actually, posting at random times is better because you might be able to sneak a pre-order in. I collect Macross toys and we all know precisely what time pre-orders for these things go up in Japan. A quarter hour sell out would be a God Send. You might miss out on the whole allotment in between refreshing your screen, things go that fast.
Providing a date means EVERYBODY will log into the exact same servers at the exact same time. Shopping carts will hang at certain screens and very likely a good number of people will be "cart-jacked" mid-purchase without some fancy server-side accommodations. No, that really won't work.

What they should do is offer an opportunity for everyone between a certain window of time to pre-order and manufacture as many as are pre-ordered within that window. Sure, some will still be scalped, but the people who really want them can get them and it will only be stragglers who end up eating it on ebay.

@rjejr Why is it funny? When hundreds of ships have been backed up in the harbor waiting to be unloaded just because the dispute is over doesn't mean all of those ships will be magically unloaded on the same day. The supply hold up is going to take weeks, possibly months, to normalize.

Honestly, I've never cared about faceplates but these are the first I feel might tempt me to purchase. They're awesome! I can import them and duct tape them to my forehead because NOA sucks!

I do wish the interviewers in the know would quit asking NOA why they do stupid things and start informing them that they are in fact stupid.

"Look, the face plates are super cool,"
I didn't want the face plates, I wanted it because it fits in my hands, you sillylittleperson.
"And now we have clear differentiation between those three systems."
On the NOA website all you show is the 2DS and N3dsXL. Where's the third system again?

Not making the "Core" happy is one thing. But I've been a Nintendo follower since the NES. Not having the smaller model means I'm not buying their system. I'm not a "core" buyer, I'm one of the few who have been keeping them afloat during their stupid years. But not anymore, no sale. Laugh at that, Damon.

I don't really understand what the problem is? These women aren't happy because this one game doesn't feature enough naked men? There's buff dudes all over video games you could drool over if you're that immature.

I think it wouldn't be as big a problem if they wouldn't reveal who every single playable character was prior to release. When the N64 and GC versions came out we only knew the initial roster. Everything else was trial, error and surprise. With Brawl and the U they let every single little detail slip so when you started the game you had no idea what the initial roster was but usually expected more than what was there.

@LawRulesALL And they also tend to have an order of release too. August/September is relatively popular. October is usually smaller/quirky or something expected to be less successful. November is the giant one. And December is the smaller, more kiddy affair. Last year was Bayonetta 2 in Oct, SMash in Nov, and Captain Toad in December. I expect Starfox (sadly it's not the most successful franshice), Zelda and Yoshi's Wooly World to fill those last three slots. Xenoblade is the odd one out, I'm not sure it'll be popular or how much of a push Nintendo will have with it. So it could actually be the October release instead, but I think they'll try to push it a bit more given it's length of development and give it the earlier August/September slot.

@JaxonH They're not unplayable because I play them all the time. The blown out pixels on the larger screens expose the fact the 3DS does not do aliasing and it looks order of magnitude worse. It isn't making a mountain out of a mole-hill either. That giant XL is not comfortable for many people to hold. That isn't a minor complaint for a handheld console, that's pretty much the biggest complaint you can have. It's not like they've made one system and we just have to deal. Look around the rest of the plant, the other option is available and we've just been told we can't have it. That's a big difference.

@swampertdude
Here's the thing. I don't want the oversized version at all. But if I were going to have to buy one I'd buy the blue one because I prefer that color. NOA has not only screwed over all of the fans waiting for the smaller version but they've also done a fine job screwing over the fans who were looking forward to the Blue XL. The only one I feel looks decent is the Monster Hunter 4 version, and that costs more because it comes with a game I'll never play. All around NOA has given me zero reasons to want this. As a matter of fact I was counting down the minutes to February 13th... now I don't give a single squat about their dumb device.

I do not get the love for that movie. Other than Let it Go being a catchy song (even after the five millionth time my niece has belted it out) I've watched it twice with my Nephew and it felt longer each subsequent time. I could swear the movie was four hours.
