RupeeClock commented on If Nintendo Did Decide To Make A Smartphone, W...:

Aesthetically looks nice, but looks like a nightmare to actually operate.
The controller attachment looks very uncomfortable to hold and lacks shoulder buttons.

The hotswappable cart idea is also odd, you would have to choose between having a battery or having memory??

It's worth mentioning that Summer Games Done Quick is kicking off soon, Sunday July 26th.
The starting speedrun will be a 100% run of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. It's estimated to be a 3 hour run, there's no shortcuts in a 100% run like this!
There'll be plenty of other Super Mario speedruns this year, although SMW isn't one of them.



RupeeClock commented on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Will Be Bigg...:

You're missing the point that the inverted castle was heavily recycled content.
Now I'm curious, how many rooms did Portrait of Ruin have? That had a fairly large main castle, and then 8 further portrait stages, 9 counting an arena stage and 11 counting two small boss rooms.



RupeeClock commented on 3DS System Update, to Version 9.9.2-26, Ramps ...:

Of that particular feature break on that particular flash cart, that's usually just as a result of changing to the firmware and not a deliberate effort to impede or block the flash cart.

So the team will likely issue an update for their flash cart and it'll be like it was before the 3DS update.



RupeeClock commented on Video: Take A Drip Down Memory Lane With Game ...:

Yes, this was before Sony entered the gaming industry as a competitor, Sony Imagesoft published a few Nintendo games back on the NES and SNES.

I've played Jerry Boy 2 and it's a good game as well. Ken Sugimori's illustration style is much more apparent in the game's spritework as well.
It's a shame that it was unfinished, it seemed like a finished game.



RupeeClock commented on Dark Pit amiibo Exclusive To Best Buy In North...:

Odd choice for exclusivity, I would have expected Zero Suit Samus or Ganondorf.

I'm so thankful that the UK does not have this exclusivity nonsense though.
Dark Pit is a great looking amiibo actually, glad to have it along with Pit, I'm a huge fan of Kid Icarus Uprising.



RupeeClock commented on The Captain Toad Figurine Lamp is Now Lighting...:

As nice as it is, I think I will pass.
I have 7200 stars currently, 540 were due to expire this month so I had to spend 500 on a Home Menu theme, which is actually really nice.

Holding out for that Club Nintendo Goodbye coin personally.



RupeeClock commented on Super Mario Maker Producer Tells Fans Not To E...:

Super Mario Maker came to be, because the NSMBU team had developed powerful level editing tools and wanted to work with that further.
The end product was an accessible level editor that's fun to play with, and offers a wealth of functionality.

With Zelda titles, there are no consistent dungeon design mechanics to tie the series together, the original NES Zelda was considerably different from Link to the Past on the SNES, to the Gameboy, Gameboy Advance and 3DS installments.



RupeeClock commented on There Are Now Over 600 DSiWare Games And Apps:

There absolutely were quite a few DSiWare that I loved, such as Shantae, many Art Style entries, some Popcap games, but it never really quite hit its stride like the eShop did.

With the advent of 3DS eShop, its download titles accomplished so much more in terms of content and quality, my 3DS eShop collection far outweighs my DSiWare collection.



RupeeClock commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Restocks on Some ...:

Shulk and Little Mac disappeared from Nintendo UK Store quickly!
But still has these and more in stock, fantastic!

I've already bought or pre-ordered all the amiibo I need from other sources, seems like if I'd waited a while I could've gotten Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer a bit cheaper.

Good to see that Wii Fit Trainer is actually available, along with Wario and Captain Falcon. Where's Rosalina & Luma though?

Game did not restock Rosalina & Luma, Pit or Toon Link.



RupeeClock commented on Square Enix Shuts Down Dragon Quest VII Fan Tr...:

Square Enix are pretty infamous for Cease and Desist orders for any alterations of their games or even fan projects.
Be it rom hack, fan translation or fan game made from scratch.

So it's really no surprise that they C&D'd this fan translation. I can only hope that Square Enix actually be fair and supply us with an actual translation. That's obviously what prompted a fan translation in the first place, demand for it.



RupeeClock commented on Pokémon Shuffle Receives Yet Another Code for...:

@maceng Yes, it's 530 coins per play.
Most plays you can expect to get 330 coins, you can sometimes manage 530 coins, or you might get unlucky and only get 30 or even 0 coins.
It does take days, in my waking hours I might amass roughly 10,000 coins a day.
Baring in mind you only need to play it for about 5-10 minutes every two and a half hours.
