shinesprite commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I think it looks great, but I would prefer matching button colors, full-sized SD support, and the power button not being on the system's exterior (I can just imagine accidentally pressing it when its in my pocket).

I'm also not in favor of the gap caused by the touch screen's bezel when the device it closed.

Otherwise, I'm all for it! ;)

shinesprite commented on Nintendo Scoops Three "Best Of E3" Game Critic...:

Its okay. What we saw of Splatoon was actually a very well-developed prototype. Splatoon is still heavily under development, and it (sort-of) makes sense that they would want to focus on awarding games which release this year. ;)

shinesprite commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

Previously, I was on the fence between Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3. However, seeing as I have already played through the original Wind Waker, I'll probably go for this one.

The new control option sounds great, but like many others, I would appreciate an option for lefties. . . . Oh well, if I could make it through Kid Icarus: Uprising, I can certainly handle Pikmin 3. ;)

shinesprite commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Personally, I am most looking forward to the Wii U edition.

I would have preferred that they both released at the same time (even if that meant that the 3DS version was delayed).

As it stands, I'll probably wind up getting both. ;)

shinesprite commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Why The Legend of Zelda I...:

No, keep doing what you do best Aonuma. Solid, spaced titles are the way to go. Perhaps Mario could even learn a thing or too. I'd actually like to see Nintendo offer a better balance of franchises (eg. Kid Icarus, F-Zero, and Star Fox). . . and if that means less frequent Mario titles, than so be it. ;)

shinesprite commented on Nintendo Considering Cross-Buy eShop Purchases...:

Honestly, I think I'd rather first have cloud-saves, a proper Club Nintendo game-linked account system; and the ability to buy games for mobile/console games from either eShop, mobile devices, or a computer, and then having them auto-download, so they'll be waiting for me when I want to play them.

Cross-Buy purchases would be great for consumers, but, more realistically, I can see this as being an option which would probably be left up to the developers.

shinesprite commented on Dan Adelman - Nintendo is "Very Much Aware" of...:

I for one am not the least bit worried.

Poking around, it looks like Nintendo is advertising like crazy for Network Software Engineers (eg. for the eShop & Miiverse) on job sites such as www.monster.com.

If this is the case, I think its safe to say Nintendo has heard our pleas, and it's less a matter of "if?", but more a matter of "when?". ;)

shinesprite commented on WayForward Launches Kickstarter Campaign for S...:

Hmmm, I really really like the Stantae series, but I have my reservations about the new art/music style. The enemies look fine, but the 2.5D world reminds me of Lost Winds (in a bad way), and frankly I just don't think the cartoon/kid style suits the main character. :|

shinesprite commented on Weirdness: This 1DS Spoof is Remarkably Well Done:

Do I spot some Photoshop mistakes on the 1DS, nah those are just separate plastic pieces.

But seriously, Nintendo needs something like this so that players can enjoy their games on the big-screen. It could somehow connect to the Wii U, and perhaps even allow 3D TV owners to experience the games you know, in true 3D. ;)
Make it so Nintendo!

shinesprite commented on There's a Shiny New StreetPass Mii Plaza Updat...:

I seriously doubt it's anything astounding.

Perhaps they're just doing minor bug fixes, laying the groundwork for 2DS connections, and. . . you know. . . checking what type of system you're using so that the app can replace all the "3DS" text with "2DS" if necessary. ;)

shinesprite commented on Investor Approval Rating For Satoru Iwata Drop...:

I think Iwata mostly makes the right decisions for the company, it's just that sometimes, there is no 'right' answer.

True, more commercials and promotions would help, but at the same time, I think the ignorant consumer's are to blame.

shinesprite commented on Nintendo Download: 27th June (North America):

"From 12:00 am PST on 28th June to 11:59PM PST on 30th June, you can earn 20 bonus Club Nintendo coins when you purchase any Virtual Console game from the Wii U eShop"
Ugh, and I just bought Yoshi earlier in the week!
