Phle commented on Accessory Review: WaterField New Nintendo 3DS ...:

I own both the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket" and the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case", as neither of them has been modified for the New XL.

They said they didn't need to modify it in order for the New 3DS XL to fit perfectly and that's true for the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case.

However the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket is slightly short on the New 3DS XL and they could have added a 5mm length to make it a proper fit for the New 3DS XL. I recently bought a New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket for my boyfriend and can confirm that it haven't been changed as I already own a Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket and they are the same when compared. I also asked about this when I ordered it.

Even so, I highly recommend both cases. The New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case has one thing worth mentioning: I tend to get less StreetPass when I use this case.

Also: The New 3DS XL will NOT slide out the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket, it's actually pretty tight and you have to pull carefully to get the New 3DS XL out. It's a very useful case if you would like to keep your New 3DS XL as portable as possible. The pocket is perfect for a slim game card holder that holds 1-3 games.

Phle commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

My first gaming console was a DS Lite. I liked it a lot, played so many games on it. However the 3DS was the first console to steal my heart. I just got a New 3DS XL, Majoras Mask Edition, my third 3DS in total. The first one was a pretty random buy. I heard the reviews and thought I didn't need one, but got one as a comfort after a having an unusual hard day. That was in October 2011. Almost every day since then I've been playing on my 3DS before I go to sleep. I always bring it with me. I have a scary amount of the 3DS library, most of them in boxed copies. I got my sister a 3DS XL a few years ago and yesterday I gave my boyfriend a New 3DS XL as a Valentines Day gift. I can only hope he'll like it as much as I do.

Phle commented on Guide: How to Complete a System Transfer from ...:

@ThomasBW84 I'm getting more and more confused as I read more about this as people keeps giving away different information.

I'm already using a 32g Micro SD card with my old 3DS. I'm getting the Majora's Mask Limited edition that comes with the game pre-installed. Now, if I do the system transfer and select "No" when when asked if I'm using an SD card with my system (as I already use a Micro SD card with an adapter), will I be able to redownload Majora's Mask after the system transfer is complete?

Is the Animal Crossing saving data issue true? That you have to delete the game from your console and create a unique save data backup (that from what I hear can't be made in any other way, as far as I know it only goes for Animal Crossing and Pokémon) before you transfer the games to your new console, if you are going to use Wireless Transfer (Limited Data) and maybe other Transfer methods as well? I'm not too concerned if I can put my current Micro SD card in my New 3DS, but I know others wonders about this as well...

Phle commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS XL Commercials Show Of...:

Nintendo should do TV commercials. And other commercials.

I mean, I have never seen a Nintendo commercial other than the ones I see here, watching the official Nintendo YouTube channel, or visiting their official pages.

I even recently learned that Nintendo has this cool guide booklet featuring all their best Wii U and 3DS games. I learned it by answering a quiz from Nintendo and one of the questions was about some of the pages in that book. I had to use Google to find the PDF version. It was great! So sad you can't see it in stores, it was obviously meant to be a free guide to what games you should get for your Nintendo console. No one looks for something like that on Google.

Phle commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

They could have nominated one 3DS exclusive and one Vita exclusive just because they are "handheld gaming consoles". Seems wrong to skip the 3DS and pretty much Vita too in favour of mobile devices and tablets...

Phle commented on Developers Outline Their Ideas for Nintendo's ...:

Well, I hope they will have backward comparability. I love that with the 3DS and the Wii U. They have so many great games on DS, Wii, 3DS and Wii U. Don't let them dust away. Sony made a terrible choice for the PS4, because I would have bought one if I could play PS3 games on it, but I can't and then my entire interest just died.
I also hope that they don't make their next console a phone. A tablet or a gaming console maybe even with android or iOS support would be okay.
The portable console and home console working together as one, sounds like an interesting idea.
I also hope they will have more online support, so it would be easier to play online and create online games for other developers. Maybe even optional 4G support and better web browsers. 4G support can make sense on a portable console.
I hope they will choose to have a higher resolution screen and a more powerful system next time. I'm not the tech obsessed kind of person, and I think most 3DS games look great, some gamers however, would disagree with me. Nintendo could benefit from it, like when you watch YouTube videos on your 3DS, it's suddenly clear, some video's are just too detailed to watch on the 3DS. Also, I think with a higher resolution screen and a more powerful system, more developers would be interested in creating games for the system. Nintendo makes great games, but their console would be even better with a good 3rd party support.

And one more thing: a solid good name. Nothing confusing like "The NEW 3DS" just did.

Phle commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

I really can't wait to play this game! I love that they made a remake, I have never played this game before. Same with Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, although they where remakes, they where all new to me, as I had never played them before. I don't see why people complain.

Phle commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

I pre-ordered the Majora's Mask edition yesterday, and when I went online today, the store had increased their price. It doesn't affect me, as I will get it for the price they had when I pre-ordered, but it's a little disgusting. They increased the price, just because other stores are sold out and they can increase the price, because people will pay anyway.

Phle commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

I voted for Majoras Mask (I haven't played it before, so it's all new to me) but I'm looking forward to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate & Dementium: The Ward as well.

Phle commented on Digital Foundry Praises the Performance for Su...:

Wow. Amazing.

I hate the fact that my 3DS still isn't in shape to play Super Smash Bros. Having it sent to be repaired will have to wait until after Christmas, and even then it seems I might not be able to have it done because I bought it at terrible online store that I don't trust and I will not let them touch my 3DS XL ever.

Phle commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I voted "maybe". Because it would have to be my other phone. Sorry, but I have an iPhone and I can't see myself without one. So it would be a second phone, the one I used for gaming and not for calling, texting or using apps. I don't know how many people who wants a second phone. I think it's few. I really don't want one. But if Nintendo made their next handheld a phone and gaming console combined in one thing, I might get one, just to play their games. But I would much rather just have their new handheld gaming console.

Phle commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

Well, I've got to say Nintendo chose a terrible day to launch Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Amiibo. I got Omega Ruby for me and Alpha Sapphire for my BF. Amiibo and Super Smash Bros. has to wait at least a week, probably more... I still haven't had time to get Bayonetta 1 & 2 either.

Phle commented on The 3DS Proves to Be a Popular Music Player in...:

Well, I already carry my iPod everywhere. Together with my 3DS XL and my iPhone. So I wouldn't use my 3DS XL for music. But it's cool that some people do. I'm not sure I can use my 3DS XL for listening to music, other than with YouTube.

Phle commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

I scrolled to take a look at the score right away. I was expecting something between 8 and 10 of 10. The score pending surprised me, but I makes sense when you can't try the online part of the game yet.

Phle commented on New Super Mario Bros. Wii Hits 10 Million Sale...:

Why does people still buy the Wii game? I mean if you couldn't get a very similar game on the Wii U, like if you want to play Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess it makes sense. But isn't the Mario platformers on the Wii U good enough to keep you from getting a Wii Mario platformer? Yeah, I know crazed fans think differently, but most people? Super Mario Galaxy sounds like a special experience that you might not be able to get on the Wii U, but New Super Mario Bros. Wii? This is either incredibly bad news for the Wii U or New Super Mario Bros. Wii has to be a legendary experience.

Phle commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

I decided a long time ago I would get watch_dogs and I haven't changed my mind. I love games that use the GamePad, even if it's just small festures. At the same time I hate games that don't use it at all. Like if the game has a map and you can't view it on the GamePad.

Phle commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Offers the Best of Bot...:

Got to say it again, never played the original games. I wasn't allowed playing games as a kid and I got my first gaming console when I was about 20. My parents didn't like it. I got into Nintendo games because of Pokémon. I've always been a fan.

I had a dream not so long ago where I was playing Omega Ruby and choose a Treecko as my stater. So my starter will be Treecko.

Phle commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

Even if you're not a Nintendo fan, Wii U has claimed the spot for "the best second home console". What I mean is, if you already own a PS4 or an XBOX One, and you want to get a second home console, Wii U is the obvious best choice. That's pretty good news for Nintendo. They just need to make gamers see the games they will miss out on without a Wii U. So more advertising Nintendo!

Personally I only own a Wii U, I'll consider PS4 when you can play ALL the Kingdom Hearts HD games on that console and only that console. I'm not getting a PS3 ever. Or XBOX One for that matter. So if it's not happening, I can live without Kingdom Hearts. I have Zelda, and I like it more.

Wow, that's a lot of glitches. But I don't see the point, what's so fun about this? Some of them seems to take a lot of time too, with little reward. I played the game the way you are supposed to, and I don't feel like I missed out.

Phle commented on Preview: Using amiibo with Super Smash Bros. f...:

I will get a few. I have no desire to get them all, at least not as long as I don't need & want them all for a game I love. Pikachu, Link, Zelda & Pit are the ones I want the most, but I will start with just getting two of them.

I live in Norway, and they are expensive here, about 150 NOK (22 USD - 17.5 EUR). Skylanders and Disney Infinity figurines are about 130 NOK (19 USD - 15 EUR).

Phle commented on Iwata Cites "Same-Generation Hypothesis" For S...:

Well, I never played any of the original games... Not sure this is correct for the Pokémon games. Lots of kids will be getting Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Kids that have been playing X and Y the past year are most likely to have a rather high interest in them, not because of the original games Ruby and Sapphire, but because it's the "New Pokémon game". Super Smash Bros. on the other hand, probably, yes.

@BlackSpy I still don't really get it.

The only thing I get is that it sounds as they are targeting what Apple also have said they will be (and already are) targeting, health. Apple have been talking about going big with this and Apple Watch is a step closer.

I just hope this dosen't mean more of: "You have been playing for a while now, do you want to take a break?" or "Hey! Listen! It's time for a break!".

Phle commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

Well they "take" my money all the time and I will continue to support with buying a New 3DS XL, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Bayonetta 1+2, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and probably a few Amiibo figurines. And then there is Zelda for Wii U. @donvito I would love to see Nintendo shine. Other than Apple, Nintendo is my second favourite company.

Well, why does he even try? The way I see it, this is exactly what Nintendo would never do as long as they have they have their own consoles... He can get a "New 3DS". It's going to be less underpowered.
