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.

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.

Nintendzoey commented on Super Mario 3D World and Kirby: Triple Deluxe ...:

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).

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Finally Confirms the Super Mario Seri...:

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!

Nintendzoey commented on Review: Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley (3DS):

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!

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.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Australia Confirms Fourth Wave of ami...:

@Liam_Doolan I would just be grateful to find any of them in the stores at all. I like the majority of characters who have been released so far. I can't justify paying the extortionate prices I have seen for them though.

My cousin and I both wanted the original (wave 1) Yoshi. I almost bought it but stupidly decided that I would just get it (if he didn't) in the not too distant future. This was before they became so highly sought after. We can only find him for $40 or more now though anywhere we look. There is a slim chance we may be able to get him in the new Super Mario Brothers series about to be released. It would have been nice if we could have gotten the original though.

I don't like hearing that people have bought truckloads of ones that they don't even want (just to make a profit) when there are people who can not even get their one favourite character now. There really needs to be a limit of 1 per customer for each Amiibo, if they are this hard to find. I don't think it is fair at all to let other people constantly miss out on the ones they want, when other people are buying them just to make a profit.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Australia Confirms Fourth Wave of ami...:

I have not seen any places where you can pre-order these things. They sell out in 5 minutes on release day over here (Australia) and they are never restocked. I would buy maybe 1 or 2 from this wave but I have 0% - 2% of actually finding any of them anyway. Many stores (that were and should be carrying these) near where I live, don't even have ANY of them now.
As for people from other countries saying that Peach, Luigi and Yoshi are easy to find - just try finding them over here.
Your only chance to get any of these Amiibos in Australia (from any wave) is to pay the scalpers on eBay (or at least that has been my experience). I think I will pass.
As for the Australian replenishment - what resupply? Obviously the stores near where I live did not get any of these.

@SilentS Harder games than Battletoads? I am glad I never came across them then. Battletoads was more than enough of a challenge! :)
After a long while, I usually give up on games if I find them too extreme in the difficulty department, like many people I know do. So I am impressed that you persevered with the game for so long and were able to conquer it in the end.

Nintendzoey commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

@SilentS You didn't use cheats did you? The thing is I gave up after a while. I stand by my previous comment though, you did have to be a gaming legend in order to conquer it. The game is consistently voted as one of the hardest games of all time. So congratulations if you did beat it.

Nintendzoey commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

Should the game be able to have the same level of insane difficulty if the Battletoads are included? I would hope not!
Yes, I am from the NES generation of kids who tried (yes, tried) to finish the game. You had to be a game master (or legend) in order to do so though. I could never get past the 3rd stage (Turbo Tunnel, the stage with the vehicles) - and there were 13 stages in the game!

Nintendzoey commented on Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Release Has Been ...:

@Achoo I said that this was just one of the things that Nintendo was making me unhappy about. If it was just this CD, I would let it go.
My problem is mostly to do with the way Nintendo treats Australia. Our games are overpriced and sometimes we never even get the games at all (such as Tappingo, which looks like a great game!).
Then some people have been saying that some of the Amiibos are easy to get, including some of the ones I wanted (except for in Australia).
I have also been playing games such as Disney Magical world and Animal Crossing where many Australians have been unable / missed out on content because we don't have any Nintendo Zones here.
I won't list all my reasons (and there are a few more as well), suffice to say I wasn't surprised to hear that other people are getting the soundtracks now - except for us in Australia.

Nintendzoey commented on Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Release Has Been ...:

I don't even have a Wii U, I only bought the game because I wanted the soundtrack. I ended up giving the game to my sister and her husband as a present.
I am starting to get REALLY angry with Nintendo!
They have done so many things to make me mad in the past year (announced they are closing Club Nintendo, the Amiibo shortage and being unable to find most of them in Australia, having many slow weeks where they released basically nothing to the 3DS, not releasing VC games to the 3DS...).
Now they are delaying the release of this CD. Why am I not surprised? If it wasn't for Majora's Mask recently, I may have given up on Nintendo.
I know it's just a CD and that it's not that big of a deal, but this is yet another disappointment from Nintendo after so many other disappointments in such a short space of time. They begin to add up.

Nintendzoey commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

I really wish that both Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie could have a chance (I played through Banjo Kazooie many times). They are 2 of my fave games ever from back in the N64 days. It would be one of my dreams come true to finally have them on a portable system.
Super Mario 64 would be awesome as well (I barely play my original DS XL anymore).
Also, I am thankful to Ninty for putting OoT and Majora's Mask on the 3DS. I always wanted to play those games but I was a teenager until the 2000s and could never afford them. I did however rent OoT from my local video store (which was a big mistake on my part, as I could only have it for a few days).

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Will Replenish amiibo Supplies in Aus...:

I can already see some Australian scalpers rubbing their hands with glee at this news. They will buy a truckload of them so they can continue to sell them to the highest bidders on eBay (but hey, at least you don't have to pay the [usually] exuberant international postage fees, right?)
I am not trying to be pessimistic, just realistic. For an Australian like me (and some of my friends), the "Amiibo" word is just not one that I care to hear anymore.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Not much for the 3DS this week. That's alright, I am about to start on Majora's Mask anyway. I am still playing Disney Magical World as well (love that game)! So if there is no great 3DS game for the next few weeks, that's fine by me.

I owned a N64 back in the day but somehow never got around to playing OoT or this one. I spent most of my time back then with Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie / Tooie.
However, I have had a 3DS since day one along with a copy of OOT (which I really enjoyed). I am really looking forward to playing Majora's Mask as well now!
