Olmectron commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

It looks like the UK online store already uses Paypal, not only credit cards. Although, it would be nice to see Paypal implemented officialy on the Nintendo eShop.

But, hey, Sony just recently started accepting Paypal as a payment option.



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Australia Confirms Game Boy Advance W...:

@unrandomsam Is that because of the bigger resolution and scaling problems? (The fact DS games look awful on a 3DS XL). If so, then you could do as Nintendo says for Nintendo DS and DSi games: "Press and hold START or SELECT when loading the game from the HOME Menu. This will cause the game to display in a lower resolution."

Here, "lower resolution" means the original DS/DSi resolution.



Olmectron commented on Pokémon Bank Goes Live in Europe and Australia:

For those getting the app already, I have a question:

Let's say you put up all of your Kalos Pokémon up in the Bank, then you erase your save file and start it all over again. Then you download some of your Kalos Pokémon from your past save file into the new one. How does the game treat those Pokémon? Are they marked as gotten from trading, so they get more experience points? Or are they treated as your own?

Thanks. I would try it myself right now, but I don't have an European 3DS.

Does Cult County make use of the CPP? Didn't know that, and I've been playing several levels already. Will check it next time.

For me, I've used the CPP XL very well with Monster Huner 3 Ultimate and Kid Icarus (I'm not left-handed, but I prefer so much to use the ZL button instead of L or R for shooting).



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (North America):

I'm glad they added The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition again in North America eShop because my old DSi was stolen.

Just for this, Nintendo made me smile once again. At least for a short but pleasant time.



Olmectron commented on Developer Of New Dreamcast Shooter Redux: Dark...:

@TheRealThanos Thank you. Yep, I use WinZip. The hard part for me was because it didn't have any extension when I downloaded it (.zip, .rar, etc.). It was only "."

I think I'll try with the WinRAR version you linked, since sometimes I can't open some compressed files with different extensions using WinZip. Thanks again!



Olmectron commented on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Reduced to $19.99 on...:

@ThomasBW84 After I saw the discount yesterday on my 3DS eShop, I didn't think they would discount the Wii U version too, since they did a permanent of that version just a week or two ago.

Capcom is being really generous with the online games. By the way, today there were also Warner Games discounts on both eShops. For example, Lego Marvel Super Heroes (the last game) is only $29.99 on 3DS, and Lego DC 2 (or something like that) is only $19.99 on Wii U.

Some good online discounts. If only Nintendo did this for 2 year old games at least...

EDIT: Grammar correction



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):

@millarrp If you're interested on Monster Hunter, then it's already on sale in North America at $19.99 on both Wii U and 3DS. However, if you talk about the indie games, I hope that promotion make it here too. Just missing one of those games, but still...



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):

@Jazzer94 So bad the UK eShop prices are way more expensive than some of other European countries. I still envy you, I would love to have SMB 3 already on the Gamepad. I can play it on Wii mode, but it's not the same just because we can't use the Gamepad as controller...



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):

I can confirm that some minutes ago the North American eShop got updated, and it already has a discount on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on 3DS and Wii U, it's now $19.99 until February 3rd (normally $39.99). It's a really nice deal, since the Wii U version just got a permanent discount some days ago. It was $59.99, then $39.99 and now with the temporary discount, well, I just mentioned it.

EDIT: Confirmed the discount on Wii U eShop.



Olmectron commented on Review: Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder (3DS eShop):

@unrandomsam About what @Windy said, maybe Nintendo.could "force" the images to always be watchable in 3D, so even if you play a 3D game in 2D mode (the 3D slider down) and then post an image on Miiverse, that image will be visible on 3D for those with 3D on.

Of course, you would see the image in 2D if you use a 2DS or are watching the post with the 3D off. And, obviously, it will be impossible for games without 3D effect (like Scribblenauts Unlimited, for example), their images are only visible in 2D.



Olmectron commented on Extended Nintendo Network System Maintenance S...:

@Georgethecow I think only public titles will have a community. That's just my opinion, though. We don't know anything yet, we've only seen some 3DS retail games communities on images, from the last Nintendo Direct.

However, there's no official word yet, so none of us can confirm anything.



Olmectron commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

@ducktrapper Oh, ok. Sorry about the missunderstanding. In fact, I read your comment, but I didn't comprehend its meaning at all when I wrote that. I just wanted to state a general point of view. Sorry again if I was rude with my comment.

Anyway, I think there's none between us who have played deeply through the game, since it's not out yet. So, our thinkings about how much innovative Super Mario 3D World will be, could be really inaccurate right now. After all, there's not better way to feel the news than experiencing them.

Galaxy is great, but if we think deeply about these matters, there's not a single Mario game with real innovation since the original Super Mario Bros., since every Mario game is about that: "Run, Jump, Beat Koopas, Get Coins, Save Someone", aren't they?



Olmectron commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

@Turbo857 Yeah.

@ducktrapper Saying that Super Mario 3D World has no innovation because it is based upon Super Mario 3D Land is like saying Assassin's Creed IV is a mediocre crossing between Caribbean Pirates Movies and a rehash of Assassin's Creed III. Oh, and, what would people think about Ultra Street Fighter IV? Really brand new, huh?



Olmectron commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

@OliverAdam So, PS4 and ONE are going for the casual players now? It would look like that, since the second one in there is actually a big TV antenna.

I still think Wii will do it better than Wii U this december (including old Wii models as well as Wii Mini). That's the way to go for the casual gamer even nowadays. However, in the long run, I see Wii U being more sold than GameCube, with Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. being the culprits.



Olmectron commented on Resident Evil Revelations And Mercenaries Are ...:

I just got RE: Revelations for 3DS because of the discount, however, my card now is only 4500 blocks left (because of those 26,000 biohazard blocks), I think I must get another card since Zelda A Link Between Worlds is coming soon, as well as Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, which is out tomorrow.

And my card is a 32 GB one, when did it get so full? The reason may be due to all those retail games downloads I've gotten since I got my 3DS... I'm glad it endured so many games already.

By the way, does anyone know if my Pokémon X & Y (digital versions) saves will still work after translating everything over to a 64 GB card?
