Sakura commented on EGX London 2014 Tickets Are Now On Sale:

EGX Rezzed at the NEC was nothing without NintendoLife. If you'll be there I'll consider it. What are you planning? I'd like to join in with some tournements, but I'm rubbish. If you can give us the line up, I'll get practicing.

Could go for this if there's a "Fried Green Tomatoes" type challenge - you know, where that woman parks in an occupied space by ramming the obstructive vehicle out of the way in an act of supremely satisfying revenge... Otherwise, uh...

Sakura commented on Win Big In Our 'Year Of Luigi' Send Off Compet...:

Glad you picked a really hard question there! 30 year anniversary in 2013, so in which year did Luigi first appear? D'oh! You're making the public giveaway questions on daytime TV look hard! Entered anyway.

Sakura commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

When I saw the title "Nintendo Life's Staff Awards 2013", I thought you were appraising the staff for a second there. My vote goes to Damien McFarren because his mii nabbed me a Streetpass day bag at Eurogamer Expo! BTW Eurogamer.net has named Nintendo's Mario 3D World as the game of the year, even though they still consider 2013 to be the year of PS4 and Xbone... Errr...okay.

Sakura commented on Nintendo of Europe Launches Free Super Mario 3...:

At first there is no indication that this promotion even exists, but once you have registered either a system or a game, the promotion is flagged up to you in your Club Nintendo account. Club Nintendo UK seem to have some new relaxation kits consisting of a blanket, blanket bag and eye mask featuring either Luigi or Peach. 6000 points though.

Sakura commented on North American Club Nintendo Releases a Gorgeo...:

@ikki5
I have a WiiU, but I like the 3DS better. I'd like to have been able to download Minis on the March using points. And, I know it's not on Club Nintendo, but the US has a gorgeous purple 3DS console that isn't released over here. Both clubs have some nice items that it would be great to see worldwide. Maybe if enough people ask Club Nintendo US, they'll stock more stuff? And make the pre-order bonuses more equitable too. It's all swings and roundabouts and a bit unfair at the moment.

@Marshi
Hi there! I did send some emails yesterday to Customer Services, but no reply. Rest of the order came today. They could have avoided my panic if they'd just put a note in with the poster saying the remainder would be shipped seperately. And wouldn't it make more sense ecomically to send everything in one shipment anyway? Oh well, I don't care now that I've got it.

@ikki5

Understand your point. There are some things I'd like from the US club too, like the game downloads and the large AR card. Would be great if they had a unified World Club Nintendo. Some of the Japanese exclusives are awesome.

I ordered the Collector's Edition from Game. I got the poster, but no trace of the actual game or the musical chest. I'm not paying £50 for just a poster so Game had better sort this out for me fast or I shall be kicking up a fuss.

Sakura commented on Nintendo Download: 21st November (Europe):

Cities of Gold! A simple premise, but actually quite a fun little game. Not being able to see the whole of a map probably pushes up the difficulty to just enough to keep me interested. It's pretty great!

Sakura commented on Hardware Review: Nintendo 2DS:

What's the wifi like? My XL always seems to pick up more hits than my original consoles. I'm not bothered about the 3D. I'd like to feel the unit in my hand, but might well get one.

Sakura commented on Iwata Asks Connects With The Team Behind Stree...:

In the UK relays seem to be working fine, though the XL gets way more hits than the original 3DS. I'm sure the XL has much better wifi and needs less time to connect. BTW, what is the max no of StreetPasses in the accomplishments? Have seen 90 000 listed online, but that's way too many!

Sakura commented on StreetPass Relay Issues Reported in North America:

In Coventry, UK. Relays seem to be working fine. Used to get no hits and now can get 10 on one visit, just walking around at a normal pace. Hotspots are very close together here because it's pretty small. Sounds like a problem with AT&T though it looks like some people are trying to connect to Nintendo Zone. You don't need to connect to anything for the relays to work, just leave the 3DS in sleep mode.

Sakura commented on New 3DS Update Brings StreetPass Relay Functio...:

Working fine now. Seems like I'm the only one with a 3DS that passes the local Greggs though. I got back the data I left yesterday with another console. And if you take more than one console along they streetpass the relay station one by one and you get your own data back. Okay for a few extra hits, but won't get you new puzzle pieces. Worth knowing if you're out with friends. A very quick walk around Coventry got me 6 hits (two of the same person) and one pink puzzle piece. That's six more hits and one more pink puzzle piece than usual, so happy so far.

@MadDragon1846

Great, thanks! Actually, it may have worked but I took 3 consoles with me and I thought that they had StreetPassed each other. But they've all StreetPassed each other again now even though it was way less than 8 hours ago. Still no-one new though so no idea...

Sakura commented on New 3DS Update Brings StreetPass Relay Functio...:

Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. Have updated the system to 6 12E, but there's no notification on UK console so wondering if we just need to wait a bit more...Will try with US console (that has notification) later.

Sakura commented on Nintendo Zone StreetPass Relay System Announced:

A bit disappointing that you can only get one hit. I suppose if you went around a town centre, you might get a lot of hits. Would they be from different people? I suppose that depends on how popular the stations are and how big the town is. Still, this is a step in the right direction. At least it will be possible to Streetpass someone other than my own consoles! However, that accomplishment list looks like there may be spaces to get 11,000-30,000 etc hits. :( One every day for 30 000 days is going to take just over 82 years! Even 2 a day is longer than the battery is going to last. I really hope those accomplishments are something else .....Maybe number of hits from a relay station? Please? At least something possible...

Sakura commented on Feature: Animal Crossing StreetPass Event Brin...:

This was a great meet. Really well organised. I got the 100 hits in day accomplishment and loads of pink pieces. Great atmoshphere at the Kyoto Lounge, though really busy so maybe why no venue for the next one has been announced yet. If I lived in Manchester I'd be a regular at the Kyoto Lounge so hope they find a similiar venue or split the meet across sites. Prizes from the raffle and competitions were great though I just sat in the corner and collected StreetPass hits all afternoon. You can get as involved as you want. There's no pressure. Just as well cos I'm rubbish at Mario Kart.

Sakura commented on Animal Crossing StreetPass Event Being Held In...:

This was great! Friendly atmosphere, great competitions, bar, loads of StreetPass hits....What's not to like? I got the 100 hits in one day accomplishment and 9 new pink puzzle pieces for the 4 panels that were released together. Got all the other panels so guess I was able to pass those on. Also played through Squad and Battle to get a few more plaza tickets. It was rather busy, but then if it hadn't been then I'd not have got so many hits... Many thanks to the organisers! It was fab. Could do with more of these events in other areas. Manchester is great, but it's 7 hours travel for me altogether, which is quite a bit in one day... I'd love to go back though. More please!

Sakura commented on Hands On: StreetPass Plaza's Downloadable Content:

Maybe the problem with StreetPass hits will be solved by the relay stations that have been announced? I am a lucky girl in that I have access to 9 consoles so that's 8 hits twice a day and I've been able to get through quite a bit on all games and I think they're epic. I'm even getting to like Garden, though I'm not sure how biologically accurate it is - surely with that much cross-pollination there'd be no identifiable breeds any more. If you can get StreetPass hits then you'll love the games. If not, then they'll be really frustrating.

Sakura commented on StreetPass Mii Plaza Update Brings New Paid Do...:

I don't care that this is purchasable content. This is a new extension to the original games that takes money to develop and is not obligatory. Nintendo has done so much for the 3DS (WiiU stuff to come surely) that I would willingly donate anyway. Well, maybe I'm a bit obsessed.. I do wish they'd released the puzzles before though - then I could have used the special miis for the special pieces. They sent 6 and I already had all puzzle pieces, now there are more puzzles and no special miis...oh well. Streetpass is like Animal Crossing in that it's designed to be open-ended.
