Sam_Loser2 commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

I don't find it much of a problem if games have enhanced elements on the NEW as long as the old can still play them. (Like Miiverse and Smash). It let's better things happen while still bringing the basic experiance to everyone. If there are too many games only playable on the NEW, then I'll have a problem. (Though not much of one, since I'm getting it.)

@ricklongo I'm with you there... though I am very tempted to get the new system...

It does raise some strange concerns for me... instead of new system generations, with obvious improvements in power and new libraries, will we get these sort of 'half-upgrades' that have a few exclusives?

Though lowering some GBA/SNES titles may be easier on my wallet, I never thought they were that expensive. They use to be full retail games after all, more expensive in the day than retail games now. I loved shovel knight, but that was a fair short game for $15. But I also bought the Oracle games for $12 for each, and both being full retail titles gave me a real run for my money. True we have bought a good many of these before, but that why I usually save my money for old gems I missed out on way back when.

@unrandomsam That still speaks to my point; it doesn't make it a gimmick. That is still an issue I'll admit and one (among many of course) reason I'm very excited to see how Smash Bros. will look at a 3D 60fps. What really bugs me is when 3D is included but doesn't look very deep at all. All Pokemon does for is push the background back a tiny bit, away from the HP bars. Adds nothing to the game, yet any 3D results in the full drop in framerate. If you're going to add 3D, it at least should be worth it.

Who is tired of carrying around a bunch of 3DS cards now there's the option to buy most any of them? I for one prefer to always go physical when I can.

And I'm SICK of people writing off the 3D as a gimmick. The real crime is that is is become more and more underused, making it appear as a gimmick. I don't understand how the gaming community with praise amazing HD graphics yet write 3D off as a gimmick. Both are to intended to create beautiful visuals for games in different ways. I for one love the 3D effect, and if you don't that's fine, but why is the beauty in OoT 3D labeled a gimmick whereas other games are praised for making them look more like real life, which we see everyday?

Already have F-Zero from the 30 cent promotion; got snowboarding from the last club nintendo offer and have game and watch gallery 4 (which, at $5 used most places I've seen, is a steal and makes all these game and watch's deal a joke in comparison). I have a few coins to burn not having much selection recently, so I think I'll spring for Spin Six.

Well crap, I now have a useless app. You have to jump though hoops to use connectivity features with Nintendo's polices already, but they shut it down because there are some misusing it? There will always be jerks or stupid kids that don't use their technology right, why must the whole group pay?

Sam_Loser2 commented on Review: Pokémon X & Y (3DS):

@XxGame_LoverXx Well in addition to the gen 5 starters you'll get your pick of gen 1 pokemon starters as well. I don't know which game, if either, or both, will have pikachu. Whatever old pokemon they have will be split evenly between the two games, X may have vulpix while Y may have growlithe. We just have to wait and see when they come out.

Sam_Loser2 commented on Review: Pokémon X & Y (3DS):

@XxGame_LoverXx It's a matter of preference. Which guy do you like better on the box? That's the legendary you'll be getting. A couple other exclusives, including charizard and and mewtwo's different mega evolutions, are all that are different. Look at the pokemon each version has and decide what appeals to you.

@stillwinds They haven't confirmed it either. The way they announced it and they way everyone's reacting to it, (Like all the Pokemon Youtubers I watch) it's like they weren't expecting it to happen, even though it was in the past couple generations. I hope you're right, but you'd think they'd mention it.

I'll probably end up using this regardless, but I really don't want to rely on a cloud service to transfer Pokemon. I already have to wait a few months to use it, and if it's ever discontinued for some reason the link between gens 5 and 6 is gone. I am keeping my DS phat around for the sole purpose of transferring between gens 3 and 4.

As long as there is an offline way to transfer pokemon from gen 5 akin to gen 4->5 transfers, then I fine with the delay and even the payment. I just don't want this to be an excuse to take out previously built-in features.

@cookiex It's not pointless. Calling 3D pointless is like calling HD visuals pointless. They both add an element to the graphics that enhances them. The 3D in Ocarina of Time was done so well for me that I eventually stopped noticing it, but when I turned it off everything was just so.... flat. It fulfilled it's ultimate purpose: pulling me into the game. If it's not your cup of tea that's what the slider is for. Just don't ruin it for those who enjoy it.

:'( This makes me really sad. A lot of reveals have sparked some rage from me but this just makes me sad....

The battles are where it matter more, though I'm still very disappointed. To make up for this they better be freaking AMAZING. Pilotwings, OoT 3D, Dillon's Rolling Western, they all had 3D that blew me away. At least give me that in the battles, not some shallow 3D like Animal Crossing's or Resident Evil's. (Maybe I'm seeing it different, but those games didn't impress me in the 3D area).

Sam_Loser2 commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

At 21 I've played a bit of GTA and even enjoyed it a fair amount, especially the DS iteration. However I definitely agree with your inhibitions of the games. The limited power of the DS didn't give as many opportunities for truly egregious acts, which may be part of the reason I enjoyed that entry the most, but I still felt like I had to turn my moral compass off at several points in the game.
