Cross buy actually made me more interested in looking into this title. I am one who will never double dip for a VC game that I have on one system. All VC titles should be cross buy. I mentioned this on VC game surveys for Club Nintendo. Hopefully the talk about an unified system are true.

I understand this is a British site but...

British Academy of Film and Television Arts.... Who cares? I guarantee anyone that doesn't live in the UK has never heard of this group nor cares what they think. They might as well be the Film Actors Guild from Team America.

I might pick a New 3DS XL up if I have spare cash. I wouldn't mind getting the MH4 bundle but not sure if I'll have enough free cash at the time (I should with tax return). Interested in bigger size (only have regular 3DS) and improved 3D. I will say one thing though... I can't see 3D unless I wear contacts or glasses because apparently my eye sight is too crappy without corrective lenses (just see double images without lenses). I mainly play without 3D effect now considering the sweet spot is too sensitive sometimes.

SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

How the heck do any Brazilians afford to pay those prices? The few rich? Because I can't even afford that over inflated price on my 12.50 per hour crap job in USA. Must be the 1% buying them because I can't imagine the average worker being able to afford overpriced electronics. I'm sure the poor/middle class would rather eat than spend their entire salary on a phone or video game system.

@eza

It can be safe to say that over 95% of people who download emulators also download illegal ROMs. So while emulators aren't illegal they are almost always used for playing illegal ROMs. Don't give me the ohhh they can be used to make new games crap. It is obvious these are just cheap bastards that want classic games for free.

SethNintendo commented on Review: Snake Den (Wii U eShop):

Tired of all these crap indie games on Wii U eshop. Nintendo needs to up their standards more. Sure they shouldn't go to the Wiiware extremes in trying for quality control but there needs to be something. There are a decent amount of indie gems on Wii U eshop but they are starting to get buried in crap.

I can see someone who had no friends to play with giving the game a 5. I had a lot of fun with this game from what I remember and would give this game at least a 7.

SethNintendo commented on Talking Point: History Shows Us That Nintendo'...:

Like a bunch of other people... I believe their next system will be a combo/fusion. It will combine their hand held and home console system into one (or at least the freaking eshops will support cross buy purchases for VC/indie games). They might go with 2 separate systems again but imagine a combo system which they wouldn't have to split up teams. Nintendo could line up a game every month and wouldn't need any 3rd party support but I'm sure they would follow if the sales were good enough. Heck, they can barely muster decent 3rd party support on the 3DS and that is the highest selling system this generation.

@JJtheTexan

"PS4 and X1 owners spend more money on games."

This statement is completely false.

Wii U total software sales = 28.47
PS4 total software sales = 25.93
X1 total software sales = 16.98

http://www.vgchartz.com/analysis/platform_totals/Software/Global/

Granted these are VGC numbers so not completely accurate and you have digital sales (which all systems have) not accounted for but it it is still the most semi accurate information we can go by. Try not to state false information in your posts or you will be called out on it.

Tie ratio is Wii U = 4.02 ; X1 = 3.3 ; PS4 = 2.58

http://www.vgchartz.com/analysis/platform_totals/Tie-Ratio/Global/

So who buys more games? Wii U owners

Perhaps if they want the best chance of sales then they should release the game before Black Friday. If they release the game after Black Friday then they have no excuse for lack of sales (because they missed the biggest sales period) even though they are releasing them game months later than other versions.

Won't ever get a twitter account nor instagram, linkedin, etc (had a facebook but deleted it a few years back)... Screw any sweepstakes that requires a "social network" unless it is the only "social network" that I belong to (Miiverse).

Like others have said before me... This should have been on Miiverse or Club Nintendo.

"What killed the dinosaurs? The Ice Age!"

Imagine Arnold as Mr. Freeze as a cameo in Super Mario Bros.

On a side note... I always thought he had a quote "Chill out" in Batman and Robin. The movie was terrible but Arnold's puns almost make it watchable (only to laugh at how stupid the movie is).

It doesn't bother me too much but they couldn't put at least 4 megapixel cameras instead of the .3 megapixel? .3 is pretty dang pathetic. My old digital camera that was given to me about 10 years ago is 4 megapixel...

I have taken a few decent photos (one of a giant spider and another of a bat) with my 3DS but some pics come out pretty bad. At least they solved the low light issue which was pretty bad.

"the Amiibo release date is going to be this holiday, alongside Super Smash Bros Wii U, the first game that will have Amiibo compatibility. "

http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/24081/20140730/amiibo-release-date-nintendo-smash-bros-wii.htm

Makes sense to release alongside Smash considering it will be the first game to use them.

"Fils-Aime revealed that they’ll be similar in pricing to Skylanders and Disney Infinity, so you can expect them to run you in the range of $10 to $15"

http://wiiudaily.com/2014/06/nintendo-amiibo-price-packaging-info/

I assumed 10-15 dollars even before typing Amiibo pricing into search. There was a placeholder price I believe (not sure what site or region, but I believe Australia) that was stating $20 but Australia usually gets screwed on price for anything gaming related (also it was just a placeholder price).

"Nintendo 3DS peripheral will hit shops in 2015."

http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Amiibo/news.asp?c=59995

The price of the peripheral hasn't been announced considering it isn't even set to release till 2015. I would assume it would be $10-20 at most. What would be cool if they released a special Amiibo for those that bought the peripheral (special Amiibo + peripheral for $30 would be a decent deal).

"And maybe 3DS, if your friend has the required peripheral which none of us have actually seen yet."

Really, you seem to know so much about Amiibo but haven't seen the 3DS peripheral? Well here you go...

http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Amiibo/news.asp?c=59995

Also...

"X1 isn't selling much better than Wii U"

Wii U has been outselling the Xbox One almost every week since MK8 release. I believe the only time Xbox One outsold Wii U (after MK8 was released) was when they first sold the system without Kinect for $100 less than the Kinect SKU.

Just let me know if you need any future corrections on incorrect statements provided by you.

@rdrunner1178

EA has never supported the VC which is lame cause they have a big backlog of 16-bit games (Road Rash, Desert Strike, etc..). I believe their reasoning is that they want people to join Origin (R.I.P. to Origin developers which their crap service is named after). I will never infect my computer with the virus known as Origin. Eventually, I will just buy used carts from the 16-bit era to get my Road Rash fix on or better yet Road Redemption.

This guy is awesome but he is looking more aged than I would have thought for 58 (have a friend at work that is mid 50s but looks 40s). You would think he would still look like a baby with his voice acting skills.

@Ferkner

Was about to reply on the same thing...

"That was a business decision made by Activision to focus us on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Another studio is doing current-gen."

Even developers are too stupid to grasp generation terminology. Current gen is Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One. According to them they are next gen system apparently. Next gen seems to be used as a hype word more than used correctly.

Last gen = PS3, 360, Wii
Current gen = Wii U, PS4, Xbox One
Next gen = ?

I feel like bashing my head against a wall every time someone uses these definitions wrong. Doesn't help when so called "experts" in the industry use them incorrectly. Some things will never change.

SethNintendo commented on Interview: Dan Adelman on the Indie Scene, the...:

At least they dropped some terrible rules from the WiiWare days such as having to have an office, game sell threshold before getting any money (sure it helped keep some shovelware out of the eshop but it also screwed some developers (MDK and Retro City Rampage come to mind), and the very small size allowed for the game.

The eshops has seen a lot of improvement in regards to those issues. However, we are about to get flooded with shovelware due to the relaxation of policies. Just gotta pick the gems out of the rough. Luckily, sites like NintendoLife exists which rates the indie/VC titles with fair ratings (hardly ever been screwed over by a crappy eshop game when following NL's ratings).

SethNintendo commented on SteamWorld Dig Wii U Release Date and Pricing ...:

There will be a slight cross buy implementation this gen for 3DS and Wii U. However, I don't see it coming into full force till next gen when they release a hybrid home/portable console which I believe is in the making considering they merged the home and portable console development teams into the same building.

Ah that would be problem for me considering I don't watch most videos with sound. I only turn my speakers on when I jam out to my music. Just call me an old time loser that is stuck in the 90s brick phone era.

So the real "challenge" is getting rich people to donate money.
