Without a doubt the placement of the volume button on the Original 3DS XL was the worst. It was so annoying to randomly have the volume shoot all the way to maximum while playing game. Honestly I might be most excited about the New 3DS because of the new volume switch location. Do they do any user testing on these things?



RandomNerds commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

@Swiket At first glance they look silly, but they are totally meant to make them more visible when playing in low light. I get that most gamers have them memorized, but sometimes when you crack open a new title it helps to see the buttons when that call to action is on screen. I would have preferred back lit buttons that could be turned off at will, would have been a nice touch.



RandomNerds commented on Soapbox: Why We Should Expect More From The Le...:

This could have been an amazing two player Zelda experience had Nintendo decided to port/remake the tingle tuner experience to work on the gamepad. Instead we get some stupid message in a bottle thing... Oye, what a missed opportunity.



RandomNerds commented on Talking Point: E3 Exposed the Strains of Ninte...:

I'm not claiming to be a game developer nor am I claiming that I know how the process works… But from where I'm sitting I think we are seeing Nintendo suffering from a lack of resources to update their asset librabry to HD. In otherwords they have limited previous work to draw on to build these HD WiiU games. Alot of what they're doing has to be re-rendered or in many cases made from scratch.



RandomNerds commented on Waiting For Wii U To Drop In Price? Not Going ...:

Bluff. Their will be a price cut heading into the holiday season… That or they will release titles that were not announced at E3 which spark sales, but the latter is highly unlikely considering everything is being delayed.

I'm cooled out. Not gonna buy it. Which sucks because I had planned too and this will just Hurt the Wii U's chances even more. Also I think that Assassins Creed III has crappy combat and I really have not enjoyed it, I'm glad I didn't play the other games in the series.



RandomNerds commented on Translated 1997 Interview with Miyamoto and It...:

I think the N64 is my favorite console of all time. Every few months I check eBay for a DD, but I just can't pull the trigger on a $800+ artifact. Maybe if I win the loto one of these days I'll pic one up. It would be such a cool conversation piece to have sitting underneath my TV.



RandomNerds commented on Hardware Review: Oyen Digital MiniPro 1TB Hard...:

It's weird to think that while I'm eligible for the Deluxe points promotion I'm still likely going to buy the majority of my Wii U games from a brick and mortar store or Amazon. I just can't get over titles being tied to my console as opposed to being tied to my Nintebdo network ID. If they fix that I'll go all digital like I have on my PS3.



RandomNerds commented on Team Meat: We'd Work With Nintendo If Meat Boy...:

I've loved the super meat boy team ever since Indie Game The Movie, it may be a bit pretentious to say they'd work with Nintendo only if meat boy was in Smash but my guess is they were probably half kidding and will eventually work with Nintendo. PS it's not cool to talk negatively about small game shops they work hard to bring us unique IPs.
