Nintendzoey commented on The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Sou...:

I am also tempted by this in Australia (but not that tempted). Since Nintendo announced that they would be adding more items to Club Nintendo over the coming months, I think I will pass for now. I am also worried that if I spend the couple of thousand stars that I have, something better might appear.
I love the Zelda games - but a CD soundtrack I can live without (at least for the moment). I will hold onto my stars and pray for something AWESOME to hit the site.

Nintendzoey commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Not really surprised, Nintendo has been getting worse in just the past year or two. I play my 3DS more than any other console. However, the number of good games for the 3DS (that actually do get released here) has really been diminishing (I can count the number of good games released for the 3DS on one hand in the past year). Maybe it would have helped if I was a Pokémon fan? I thought the Nintendo Direct would give me hope - but no.
Why would I bother to buy a New Nintendo 3DS then?.
Then we have Club Nintendo, something that was actually starting to be good in Australia (with many great items arriving over here in just the past year). So of course, why doesn't Nintendo just get rid of that as well? Less cool exclusive merchandise to go with the less cool new 3DS games - makes sense...
Even though Nintendo may still be more committed (okay, WAY more) committed to their handheld than a certain other company is to theirs. Perhaps Nintendo have just spoilt me too much in the past.

I liked this game better than the 3DS version (I thought the boards sucked in the 3DS version). Unfortunately, Nintendo would rather release this on the Wii U instead of on a handheld for which this game was originally intended. Wonder if Nintendo will ever get a clue and release any of the GBA games to the 3DS. Nintendo has been going downhill (for me) recently for multiple reasons.

People should love this! In my experience, Yoshi has been one of the hardest Amiibo characters to find. I see ones like Mario, Kirby and Luigi all the time. Could never find a Yoshi though, which aggravates me because he is my fave Nintendo character...

I see there is no mention of Australia here. What a surprise... Well, not really. When it comes to Nintendo Australia we are usually just grouped with Nintendo of Europe. Then whenever it is convenient for Nintendo, we are not.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January:

Yet another week and nothing good for the 3DS. It doesn't matter, I am getting used to long stretches of nothing for it now... The only good game on the horizon is Majora's Mask. Used to be that there was always something I was interested in on the way - how times do change.

Nintendzoey commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse Delayed Into 20...:

This is one of the reasons why I bought an American 3DS. All we ever do in Australia is wait and wait. Then if we are lucky, we may just get the game... at probably double the price.
When I go to America, I usually stock up on eShop point cards for this very reason.

Nintendzoey commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

One of the best consoles ever (in my opinion)! So many memories with this thing.
Sad story about probably my favourite game from this console though (after Super Mario 64) - Banjo Kazooie. We will never forget you.

Nintendzoey commented on Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS):

I got all excited over this game for nothing.

I really enjoyed Persona 4:Golden on the Vita. The reason I liked it so much though was because of the variety in gameplay. This was a game where you were basically free to do whatever you liked (including planning your day, racking up social-links and visiting the various places in the town and city).

Hearing that most of this gameplay I mentioned has vanished and that it instead utilises "first-person dungeon-crawling and map-drawing gameplay of Etrian Odyssey" really does not impress me at all.

Think I might just go and play Persona 4 on my Vita again instead.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (Europe):

I have had Rune Factory 4 on my American 3DS for months. I had given up on them releasing it over here in Australia.
Probably will pick up the Phoenix Wright Trilogy. I can never get enough of my favourite Ace Attorney! I played all the original DS games but it's been so long that I probably need a refresher course.

Nintendzoey commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

Wow, taste those sour grapes from Sony. They know that the 3DS is still selling like hotcakes but the Vita.. actually, what is the Vita? More to the point do Sony even know what the Vita is? It's a part of the PS4, right?

Actually, I do own both the Vita and a 3DS. I buy a game at least once a month for the 3DS. I can't remember the last time I bought a game on the Vita. With all the wonderful support Sony gives to the Vita, just like Nintendo does for the 3DS, I can't understand why. Wait a minute...

Nintendzoey commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

I had to buy a NA 3DS because of the region locking. I was sick of getting messed around here in Australia. Hopefully Nintendo will never think of region locking any of their consoles again.. or, is that too much to hope for?

To tell the truth, I don't even know what a Smartphone is. That's not really saying much though, I am behind with all technology basically.
My mobile phone is over a decade old (the only thing you can use it for is actual phone calls). I have never used Facebook, Twitter or any of those other sites people are always talking about either.
The most high tech thing I own is my 3DS XL. So don't worry Nintendo, you are not the only one behind the times (if you think you are).

I live in Australia but was playing this game on my American 3DS, really enjoyed it as well. My friends were not happy though as they could not afford an American system. Happy to hear they will have a chance to play it now though!

Nobody can say the Australian store does not have good things in it anymore. It has gotten SO much better in just the last year or two: Luigi Diorama, Hanafuda cards, Mario Hat, Yoshi plush toy, Super Mario 3D World soundtrack... the list goes on. Now we can get this Kirby soundtrack as well. I am really glad to see that Nintendo is finally acknowledging the Australian store. :)

I don't really need anything like this and I am trying to cut back on figures - statues - dioramas anyway. I don't really care if this comes to Australia or not. I already have the 20th Anniversary Sonic figure anyway, that will suffice.

Did you really have to mention him? I always think of Justin as a beaver though, every time I am subjected to his music I always say "Dam!"
Honestly though, this does look like a fun game. If I had a Wii U, I may have looked into this game.

Nintendzoey commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

I am probably one of the few who prefers handhelds over home consoles (I am usually out of the house most of the time anyway). The 3DS is my main system but I don't think that I am even close to having 300 on there.
I would need a decent size SD card though I guess, mine is only 32GB and it is almost full now (especially with games like Donkey Kong Country Return's file size).

Finally! A little too late though, I ended up purchasing this from NA (for my new NA 3DS). I had given up on it ever coming over here.
I may purchase another copy for my Australian 3DS though, just to support this release and let Nintendo know the game is actually wanted over here. Then, if there is enough demand, they may hopefully release a sequel in the future. Well, Nintendo does it with most of their other games.

I hope it's not additional content that you can get on your 3DS if you also have a Wii U. I don't have a Wii U and I don't plan to get one either. I never play the home consoles anymore, I prefer the handhelds (why I have both a 3DS and a Vita). I still have my Wii but don't play on that either.

Nintendzoey commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

As a kid in Australia, I got to experience both the NES and the Master System. I personally had the NES and my best friend had a Master System. I remember both of them being big sellers in Australia (even before Sonic arrived). Though of course, the NES was still more popular.
Loved both Alex Kidd and Mario. Both excellent gaming characters!

@readyletsgo Sometimes. I have never had to buy a handheld from another region before though, since the DS was region free. Last time I was in America, I just got whatever game I wanted for the DS. Well, at least I can still get any PS Vita games without buying another handheld system.

Nintendzoey commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (Europe):

Yet another lousy week for the 3DS. Not really interested in that Fiesta game.
I got so sick of this year's slump (no game released in Australia this year, besides Kirby, has interested me). This week I decided to purchase an American 3DS. I also purchased Disney Magical World (a game that will probably never see the light of day in EU/AU). I am going over to America next year for a few weeks anyway, so I can pick up (hopefully cheaper) games while I am over there.

What a joke. Bandai Namco is the same company responsible for Disney Magical World (although Nintendo published it in NA). So they can bring this Disney (?) (never heard of it) game to Australia but not Magical World? What gives?

I also spent a stack of money on Nintendo items this year (well over $1000), but do I have anything to show for it? No. Why not? Well, because Australians and Europeans do not get anything at all like this. We spend just as much money as people in NA (maybe even more because the prices are so much higher here) but we never get rewarded like the people in NA. Still, even with something to show for it (even if it's not all that great), people in NA will continue to complain and complain and complain... UGH!
