SetupDisk commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Season Pass i...:

Launch day DLC for a Lego game? I was actually getting hyped up for this because of Adam West. Now I know I won't get it on anything till there is a complete release further down the road.

I can't see how they could possibly use the eshop infrastructure as an excuse. We just got the equivalent of a season pass in Mario Kart and Mario Golf on 3DS has had it for a while.



SetupDisk commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

It all comes down to your personal choice. Why would I give a crap what gage_wolf, DefHalan, Dezzy, RCMADIAX, a reviewer, my co workers, my relatives, my friends, my best friend or anyone else thinks of a game?
Why would I care if they wanted me to buy it or not? Oh that's right, there is no justifiable reason.



SetupDisk commented on Review: The Fall (Wii U eShop):

I got it and played through. I would have given it an eight. The voice acting is actually strong not weak. I like the combat controls as well, it takes skill and headshots are more rewarding that way. The story is full of great dark humor.

It did freeze once though. Some of the puzzles are trial and error but they do make sense when you solve them.

@Beetlejuice @Beetlejuice
I'm a child of the eighties but no one I knew ever dressed like that in the 90s. It was all over music videos and tv though. Fashion trends are always silly but more so are the people that feel they have to jump aboard.

Actually the neon bike shorts were much worse than that.

Just about everyone I knew growing up just wore jeans and t-shirts. No nostalgia. Though the torn jean fad did kinda take for a bit.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Demon King Box (3DS eShop):

The nipple isn't exposed as it looks more likely that the skin type clothes are at least covering most of it. Maybe she has nipples the same color as the rest of skin for craps and giggles. Demons!



SetupDisk commented on Review: Demon King Box (3DS eShop):

Yeah I Iiked it and I usually get tired of tower defense pretty quick. I haven't gotten far enough in the game where you don't have time to plan your attacks though.



SetupDisk commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

I have an Ambassador 3DS, I saw no reason to upgrade from that to the XL. My third system was an NES and I have all Nintendo home consoles.(not VB) I have bought Nintendo games/systems for my nieces and nephews since they have been old enough to play. I already have Platinum for Club Nintendo without even doing all of my surveys. When I said don't put all customers togther I meant just that. So far including presents for others I have bought 10 Nintendo consoles plus the Nes and Snes that I got for presents as a kid.
I don't get some kind of nerve calling other Nintendo customers "and the like" from what I purchase though.

Now from my history purchasing Nintendo products I knew this was going to happen. I have to wonder why you didn't. They have done this with their portables for years.



SetupDisk commented on GameStop President Says "Don't Bet Against Nin...:

Well right now I have a Wii U and PS3 hooked up. I have a 3DS as well. My nephew who comes over once a week has a Wii U, Xbox 360 and a 3DS.

If he only had a 360 and I only had a PS3, a lot of gamers only own one system, the only games that could have some interaction like that are Skylanders/Disney.

But the thing is even if we liked those games, it might be a cool the first time but we like too many games and we would just be playing some local mulitplayer in some other game the next time anyway.

That's why I never got any of my nieces or nephews Skylander/Disney. Hell even the drums/guitars I got them were used in a series but the whole series was just the same game and pretty soon they were put out of the way.

If I buy them some Amiibo though, we can play different games each week and still use them. We aren't boxed into one option. We could all play games that we enjoy. That's why I would have no problem getting all them some figures they wanted the most.

Your point about retail space is right, but space doesn't effect sales that much in retail at least in electronics. You can have items with 10 faces sitting there for weeks and items with 2 facings that have to be replenished every day because they sell so well. The ratio doesn't equate to retail space = more sales.

The user base for every system is of course going to be larger. But it's a combination of Wii U/3DS not just 8 million. It's not going to Skylanders big but it doesn't have to be near that big to be a success, especially if it has a higher attachment rate.



SetupDisk commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

It's Mario driving a Benz. How the hell can people not see the awesome in that? Doesn't make me want to buy one even if I did have the money. I have to wonder of all the people getting offended by this how many could afford to go and get a benz right now because they saw it in a game?
