Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (North America):

No love for Kirby fans yet, NoA? Sure, we got Rainbow Curse first, but now there are two Wii downloadable Kirby games available for Europe, and zero for America. I just want Epic Yarn, since is the only one I don't own, but Return to Dreamland (Adventure Wii) would be nice, too.

Olmectron commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / DS):

@DreamyViridi Really? This is the only Mario game that I've 100%'d. I tried to complete both Wii and 3DS iterations, and some Star Coins are harder to find. I never dared to search the network for NSMB for DS, it wasn't necessary; but I did for both NSMB Wii and NSMB 2. Maybe I'm turning into a worse gamer with the age...

Oh, old days of youth...

I'll just complain I couldn't play the Global Testfire. I worked yesterday until so late, and started working today really early, so I was still busy until 1 hour ago, which means I wasn't able to play in any of the three sessions.

Olmectron commented on Nintendo Has Shipped 10.5 Million amiibo World...:

I think they are counting a lot of South American countries along with the U.S. + Canada percentage. There are a lot of Nintendo fans around here, I have 5 friends who've gotten all of the amiibo that have been launched so far (in the region, at least).

@Aireye Maybe it's not what you would want to do, but you could create a Canadian or USA account, so you could buy digital only but cheaper.

Yep, it's a higher price in Mexico, but not $80 dollars per 3DS game, it's like $50 - $55 dollars, which is something around $750 - $850 mexican pesos. That's still a shame, since the 3DS games standard MSRP is used to be $40 dollars.

Come on. Those who are still complaining about the Japanese Direct must understand there's a reason the directs are different, more than only the language.

If Nintendo didn't say the games will be separated in the west as well, it's not a fact yet. So, no reason to complain right now; just save that for when it's announced officially for the west.

The age of the internet. This happened in the Japanese Direct. Did you read? Japanese. This is already a fact if you live in Japan or if you have a Japanese 3DS and import games.

There's a reason of why Nintendo made it sound like a single game in the American and European Directs. It's still a niche game around here. Even Nintendo isn't that bad making some decisions.

But oh, the age of the connected world.

Olmectron commented on OlliOlli Arrives on Wii U and 3DS Next Week, C...:

@Barely_Able I think it's better to get a code. Or maybe make it an option: "Download it to my other console" or "I'll take my code, please". This would be great, since this way you can share it with some other person if you don't have the other console, and don't plan on getting it.

There's a tool for redeeming codes already. Here: https://eshop.nintendo.net/redeem#/ , if you are in North America, you can enter your code there, and it will download automatically to your console, when it is in standby mode. I think it should have SpotPass on. Not sure if it works on Europe already.

Olmectron commented on Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Budoten is Fighting Its...:

The last Japanese-only game for Nintendo DS was superb, it was Dragon Ball Kai Ultimate Butouden. Lots of characters and great graphics! It had amazing gameplay, too, really challenging and fun at hard stages.

Good thing the DS was region-free, so I was able to wrap my hands on one copy. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the 3DS. Come on, Nintendo, publish this in the west.

Edit: Oh, and Dragon Ball Kai Ultimate Butouden was a 2D fighter. You may see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL35Dyjc40s

@Grumblevolcano Maybe it's not the best example, but if I could control Ridley in the Metroid stage in SSB for Wii U, insted of having it CPU controlled, the game would appeal more to me than it does, I would even call it SSB 5.

Five players at once is a nice addition un the Mario Party franchise. It's the asymmetric gameplay using the GamePad what makes this a unique mode in the series.

@ZurrrrBlattTron Well. Of course that will happen. That happens today with limited console models. It's not the same, but it happens.

Anyway, while that wouldn't be a full break for scalpers, it would be for some, not every scalper (of course some of them can) can get dozens of 3DS systems for reselling them.

Olmectron commented on Weirdness: Club Nintendo Members Attempt to Se...:

Some people are simply despicable.

I hope the next reward system Nintendo implements will download directly to your console, without giving any code. That way, it would be really hard to resell this kind of things, wouldn't it?

Olmectron commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

I got , like, $130. It was a good promotion.

I had like 12,000 points 2 days ago, yesterday I finally was able to buy Captain Toad and Hyrule Warriors. So I ended today with 2 more codes.

I'm going to see now if there are any discounts left on the eShop.

Olmectron commented on Code To Unlock Contrary Serperior In Pokémon ...:

It's a Serperior with a great ability: "This Ability causes all effects that would lower a stat to increase it instead, and all effects that would increase a stat to decrease it instead. This also applies to self-inflicted moves, such as Curse and Leaf Storm."

It was obtanaible only through the Dream World in Gen V. Great!

Olmectron commented on Parent Trap: The Eyes Have It, Why amiibo Deta...:

It seems Nintendo wants to hear people. I answered a special quiz yesterday at Club Nintendo. They asked about what kind of games would I like to see amiibos on. Of course I selected the "amiibo exclusive game" option. They asked too, about if I looked for alternative color amiibos. ("YES!!")

Finally they asked what other uses would I like my amiibos to have, I asked for premium amiibo figures (even more detailed) which unlock full retail digital games, too. Crazy, huh?

Olmectron commented on Mega Man Zero Arrives Along With More Discount...:

@hypercoyote Maybe when they announce a perfected account system. I think it's not that far by now, specially considering Nintendo giving more importance to the eShop (discounts, easy ways to buy, and so on).

I consider the ability to buy so little games from nintendo.com is due to this being an experiment/first trial of what is to come.

Olmectron commented on First Impressions: Bravely Second's Demo Comes...:

The second half of the first game may seem tedious and boring, however, not every world is exactly the same. The dialogues and battles change! More in some than in others, but it is interesting at some point.

Enemies change dialogues, team up and change personality (kind of). I really liked it!

Olmectron commented on Weirdness: Factory Error Results in Dual-Wield...:

@rjejr Well, that's really bad. Sure it's something that Nintendo must check asap.

Just saying. I would kill my savefile and start a new one in the external one, and keep the external drive always on when I play. Of course, so that the other person could keep his/her file.

Olmectron commented on Mighty Final Fight and Mario Pinball Land To H...:

Enter the Mighty Final Fight game page, it says: "27th Nov 2014, $500.00 (USA)" and "27th Nov 2014, £500.00 (UK/EU)". I suppose it is a really great great old game.

Although, there's no way I'm paying a Wii U and 3DS consoles price just to get this game.

Olmectron commented on Mighty Final Fight:

What the? "27th Nov 2014, $500.00 (USA)" Is this game worth a Wii U and a 3DS consoles price?

Olmectron commented on Meta Knight amiibo to be Best Buy Exclusive in US:

That's the way to support Mexico and South America.

Mexico has Best Buys too, but they never have any videogame offering, they even barely sell Nintendo games around here. Gamestop doesn't exist, and Amazon doesn't always send the packages to this country.

It would be all okay for me, but Link and Shulk are the only amiibo I really was looking for. I think I will only get Link, then.

@Tsurii897 Any Wii U owner who tragically happen to buy this game accidentally (because there is no other way of getting this... thing) has a duty to incinerate his/her console until it gets reduced to ashes, and then pour them into the W.C. To flush it away will be the only way to redeem the committed sin.
