Nintendzoey commented on Video: Christopher Lloyd Revives Doc Brown Rol...:

I purchased two Funko Pop vinyls recently that were both characters played by Christopher Lloyd - Doc Brown (BTTF) and the other being Judge Doom (Who Framed Roger Rabbit). So many toys and figures are around now, some people might be able to open a toy store soon!

Nintendzoey commented on Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley For 3DS Launches...:

I have this game already on my American 3DS (I have both an AU and NA system). The screenshots of the game looked good originally. Sadly, I really did not like it very much at all and agreed with Nintendo Life's rating for this game ( 4/10 ). There was just too much missing from the game (no town etc.) and I found the gameplay more tedious and boring (when compared to other games in the series).
I am looking forward to Story of Seasons though, I will be heading back over to America in July, so I will probably pick up a copy of it then.

Nintendzoey commented on More Club Nintendo Goodies Coming To The Europ...:

This is what they should have done with Club Nintendo when they announced it's demise - told us what was coming to the catalogue. I think it is a little too late for some people now, as they have spent their final stars already (on downloadable games etc.). I have a few stars left, so hopefully I will still be able to afford something good. As for other people though, it's probably too late now.

Nintendzoey commented on Weirdness: Fred Savage Seems Very Much In Favo...:

I am in my early 30s now but I remember seeing The Wizard when it was released in 1989 (although I think it may have been either 1990 or 1991 when I saw it). It is actually one of my first memories of Nintendo. I remember the scene in the movie where the kid finds the Warp Whistle (located in the first Fortress / Dungeon) of World one. After seeing the movie, I ran home, turned on my copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 and found it for myself. This was back before you could go online and find cheats / walkthroughs for any game(s) you want. I was so excited at the time! These days you can find the secrets in games so easily...

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Announces Gold & Silver Super Mario E...:

The Amiibo stock situation is really making me laugh now. I am not surprised that they are out of stock already. I wonder how many they actually received. I also wonder how long the gold will last through Target when it is made available? 30 seconds? Actually that might be too long. 10 seconds perhaps? :D

Nintendzoey commented on ​The Prices of the Remaining Physical Goods ...:

I agree, this does seem a little unfair to the people who have already spent their coins. It's almost like Nintendo is just throwing your final coins away. I think the only people who would disagree are the people who could not afford any of these items previously.
I have already ordered the light in AU. I hope they do not come out with another cool item for EU / AU for people to spend their stars on and then discount the light. What a beautiful (not) way that would be for Nintendo to treat their loyal customers when they close down Club Nintendo!

Nintendzoey commented on Hacker Produces Region Free Exploit for Curren...:

I ended up buying a NA 3DS console anyway. I was sick of all the restrictions us Australians get (games not getting classified, games taking forever to be released, games not getting released at all). I found it all extremely unfair since I go to America on occasion (once every year or two). I hated having to buy a second console just because of the region lock. I may have to purchase a NA New Nintendo 3DS as well now - I don't think they will let this exploit last for long (thanks Nintendo!, I only just got the AU version), when I head back over there in July. At least Sony was kind to us with the Vita.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

If they do restock more of the rare amiibos, I can see 2 things happening:
1) They deliver only a few of the rare amiibos, scalpers pick them up and once again continue to sell them for an inflated price on ebay / or
2) By some miracle they actually do produce a lot more, making them not nearly as rare. Then the people who paid the ridiculous prices on eBay will rage and say "I thought they were going to become collector's items, so I paid over $50 FOR ONE of them".
I have been seeing characters such as Ike, Marth and Meta Knight in some stores recently though - so Nintendo must at least be trying to restock some of the rarer ones.

Finally a week where there is something tempting for my 3DS: Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. I can never seem to get enough Mario! I would also buy the Kirby game if I had a Wii U.

@DeltaPeng Yes I did. When I saw them in store I ran over to them and yelled "OH YES!", while I grabbed them as fast as I could. My sister was with me at the time and said "whoa, what's the rush here?" (as she is not really into video games, so I don't think she really knew what the big deal was). She probably thought I was going crazy or something. :D

Nintendzoey commented on ​Warren Spector Reminisces About the Develop...:

I played both Epic Mickey games (one on Wii, the other on PS Vita) and enjoyed both of them. It did help that I am a Mickey fan though (but how could I not be after those awesome Mickey games of the 1990s). I do hope that there will be another Epic Mickey game in the future - or maybe even just another Mickey game that is epic.

Still no Darkwing Duck? Still no sale. They will have to release characters from the Disney Afternoon line-up before I will even considering buying a single Infinity figure.
Until then, I am content with Nintendo's Amiibos. I actually found Pac Man, Wario, Ike, Marth and Meta Knight in my local store today (about time I had some luck)!

Nintendzoey commented on Weirdness: eBay Listings for the Club Nintendo...:

I feel sorry for the people who thought nothing good was going to come and spent their last stars on downloadable games (unless you would rather have the games over this).
I wish Club Nintendo could just tell us everything that will be available on the site, so that people can decide what they want to spend their final stars on.
Nintendo says this item is planned for delivery in July though, so it will be interesting to see what happens between now and then.

Nintendzoey commented on Here's Why The StreetPass Bunny Couldn't Care ...:

I bought the games anyway, so I didn't see the Bunny's impassive reaction (I have an Australian 3DS, so I guess we would have also gotten this response).
However, it can be hard to get streetpasses in Australia (since we have no Nintendo Zone or the like - so we get no special relay weeks or whatever). Unless you live near a city, sometimes you are only looking at a few passes a month (if you are lucky), unlike the majority of people in NA who probably get them on a daily basis.
I also have an American 3DS and have had more than a few "special" (Nintendo etc.) visitors to my NA plaza, unlike my Australian 3DS that has maybe one "special" visitor a year to our AU plaza (if even that).
So to many Australians, the Bunny's response would probably also perfectly reflect Nintendo's attitude to our own Streetpass Plaza ("fair enough" or "couldn't care less").

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Australia Lists eShop Offerings Redee...:

@Liam_Doolan I have been able to save them up since there has not been very many good rewards offered on the site recently. I only have a 3DS but I purchase the majority of my games digitally (more convenient for me as I used to lose the game cards), so I always get the extra download bonuses. There were also many games on sale over the Christmas break (some of them were greatly reduced), which were also worth 400 stars each (for registration and bonus).

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Australia Lists eShop Offerings Redee...:

I think this is the first time downloadable games have been offered to Australia's Club Nintendo (or at least I have never seen any on offer before).
Nothing for me though, I already own the games on this list that I want(ed). I would much rather have the special physical rewards. I have more than 5000 stars for the Australian Club Nintendo and I really hope it will not end up as just a waste of time.

Nintendzoey commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

@Nintendian There is still an audience who wants more than just the casual game though. Nintendo realises this, that is why they released Xenoblade Chronicles as an exclusive to the New 3DS - to try and sell the system. People are not going to want to buy a new system just for Indie games that they can easily play elsewhere (such as on a smartphone).

Nintendzoey commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

@Nintendian I hardly think that the New 3DS will sell many units if Nintendo's idea is to have Indie games "fill the gap" while they work on a new handheld. If Nintendo really want to sell the system (which I believe they do), they will have to also churn out A+ games worth playing. I can't see many people wanting to or actually buying a new system if they don't. If one of the main things Vita had promised (when it was released) was Indie games, I never would have bought one in the first place.

Nintendzoey commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

@Nintendian I own a Vita and most of the time there is nothing but Indie games. That's not what I bought (a supposed) dedicated handheld for. Nintendo has continued to show support for their handheld, I believe they will continue to do so. Unity is just another option open to them now, which will be good for the times throughout the year when the game releases slow.

I was just given a New 3DS XL (Majora's Mask edition) console from one of my friends for my birthday. So this is an awesome time to announce this news. There seems to have been so many weeks recently where there were very few releases for the regular 3DS (or anything interesting anyway). Here's hoping that this news can and will help to change the tide.

Nintendzoey commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Seriously? That's his reason? Most of the kids I know seem to play smartphone games more and the people who are my age (I won't say) tend to play the handhelds. My mum just got a 3DS for her birthday actually. So from my experience, his logic should be the other way around! Why should it even matter who plays what though?
Since when is Fantasy Life a supposed adult's game? Looks like this guy was just trying to find a plausible excuse - well, keep searching dude.

It would be cool if the Sesame Street theme was released over here - but only if the accompanying song was "Rebel L" or "Letter B" (yes I am serious, have a listen to them). Those songs are by far some of the best song parodies that Sesame Street ever did (well in my opinion anyway). Probably hard to do though, there would be way too many hoops to jump through.

I see that a number of people have an "objection!" to this being a Japan only release game at the moment. Give it time though, remember that other games (such as Wright Vs Layton) took a long time to come out here as well. I doubt that the collectable Briefcase will also make it over though.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Download: 9th April (Europe):

Not surprised about the 3DS game releases (or lack of). There really does not seem to have been many good games (or at least any that I am interested in) that have been released to the 3DS for a good while now. The last good release (any 3DS game release) for me was Majora's Mask.
I have been playing my Vita recently instead and some of the games (although not many - and I have not touched it in almost a year) that I have missed out on, now that the 3DS releases have slowed.

@Luffymcduck Well I do have an Xbox 360 that I have both games on (as well as on my N64 - though I have not touched it in years), I guess the XBox will have to suffice for now. I don't really bother with home consoles anymore though, I much prefer handhelds, which is why I would have loved the games on the 3DS. Too bad..

Nintendzoey commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

I just wish the original Banjo Kazooie or Tooie (N64) could come to the 3DS. If there was to be any collaboration between Microsoft and Nintendo, I would want that to take the biggest priority. I have wanted another handheld Banjo Kazooie for more than a decade (yes, I played and still own the GBA game). Especially since Microsoft does not have a handheld competitor. So many memories with those two games from back in the N64 days (one of the best consoles that I ever owned - and still own).
On the other hand, I would love a Banjo Kazooie Amiibo (but based around the N64 design). Anything to do with Banjo Kazooie merchandising would be great though, we have not seen anything from either of them for way too long.

Awesome! I missed out on the Kirby soundtrack when it was last available (I was able to get the Mario 3D Land soundtrack previously though). I knew sooner or later that there would be something I really wanted on the Australian Club site. Thanks Nintendo!
I still have over 5000 stars as well - which is a lot in Australia (meaning that I can still get that something special [if there will be one], fingers crossed)!

Nintendzoey commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

6 out of 10 games that I voted for made it into the top 10, not too bad (Fantasy Life is missing though).
Glad to see Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros., Luigi's Mansion, the Zelda games and Super Mario 3D Land there.
On another note, I am glad to see that Tomodachi Life and New Super Mario Bros. 2 (nothing really new about it) did not make it into the list, I did not really enjoy those games (although many of my friends did).

Australia has sucked for stocking any of the Amiibos (at least my local stores).
After months of not being able to find a single Amiibo, I saw the whole Mario Party range yesterday. Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, Bowser (and yes even) Toad. Who knows how long they will last in store? I decided to get Yoshi, Toad and Bowser while they were still available. My first Amiibos!

I played this on my American 3DS and I have to agree with the score for this one. I really did not enjoy it much at all. Too much work and there is not even a town. I just found it tedious and boring.
I am looking forward to Story of Seasons though!

Nintendzoey commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

Maybe this will be a reason for me to finally get a Smartphone or the like. I have had my mobile phone for more than a decade now (it has no internet, apps, camera or anything like that). The only thing that it can actually do is make phone calls. I have always been fine with that, as that is all I ever wanted it for. Maybe Nintendo finally making this step is also a wake up call for myself.
