RupeeClock commented on Club Nintendo Adds Some Snappy Coaster Sets in...:

As nice as these are, my stars would be better spent on one of the bigger prizes like the MK7 trophies.

Come on, a trophy, or four coasters? Not a difficult choice.

Got 7200 stars right now, I'm holding off for something better.
I'm especially interested in the Club Nintendo Goodbye coin, which'll probably come quite later on.

Nah, it won't be easy.
The YouTube app has already been downloaded by hundreds of thousands of 3DS systems, and I doubt anybody was sincerely using it for video playback, it was bad at its own job.
New 3DS users are much better off using the improved web browser than this dreck of an app.

Nintendo would be better off altogether removing the app, as it was probably a cobbled-together solution by Google who never gave it much care or support.
On the other hand though, it would be a PR issue to remove such a crucial feature for the device.
"Nintendo removes support for YouTube on 3DS", can you imagine the ire that would arouse?



RupeeClock commented on 3DS Homebrew Hacker Turns to YouTube App As La...:

Like Gridatttack mentioned, the YouTube 3DS exploit is out in the wild now.
Using the exploit also lets you set up the IronFall Invasion exploit, which is a one-time and permanent offline solution to launching homebrew.
But you can also use the YouTube exploit to launch homebrew, but it appears to require online every time.

It's not. Emulation is only a means of playing the game.
It's entirely possible to emulate things which are not pirated games, such as homebrew games, or personally ripped game images.

Saying that circumventing region lock is illegal however is just downright daft.



RupeeClock commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Hits The ...:

"Meanwhile, those all-important packs of NFC cards are available for £3.49. Each one contains 3 different cards, all randomly selected."

That's not strictly true, one of the three will be a special card!

"Series 1 Animal Crossing amiibo cards Pack contains three Animal Crossing amiibo cards. Out of these three, one card will always be a special amiibo card. In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer this means it features a character whose house you won’t be able to build without using its amiibo card."



RupeeClock commented on Awesome Mario Kart Trophies Are Now Up for Gra...:

I only have 6950 stars left, and both the Shell and Lightning trophies that I like.
I think I may play the waiting game and see what comes in the final days, I'm particularly eager to get that Club Nintendo Goodbye coin.

Then at the end, the question may be if I get a Special Cup, or a Majora's Mask lamp, hmm.



RupeeClock commented on Hands On: Here's What The 3DS Version Of ​Te...:

Where did you learn that the 3DS version won't be as current as the PC release?

The article says that "It includes all of the PC version updates with over 1,300 crafting recipes, 150 enemies and 15 bosses to battle."

I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet.



RupeeClock commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

Announcing it earlier on is giving more software publishers and developers a better chance to develop for the system, or decide if they want to develop for the system.

Right now one of the Wii U's biggest issues is that it's not on-par with the PS4 or Xbox One, and developers aren't bothering to produce multi-platform titles that aren't capable on the Wii U for it.
