Silvervisiona commented on Matters of Import: Bahamut Lagoon Roars Onto T...:

I loved this game. I played this at a young age and is one of the reasons I fell in love with JRPGs, due it it's excellent tactics and music. The dragons made the game epic and the bosses were so much fun to beat. I would love to play an official translation because the story was top notch. Please surprise us Square-Enix!



Silvervisiona commented on Pokémon X & Y to Catch Roughly 14,000 of Your...:

@mullen That would represent a purchase decision breaker for me. A corrupt SD card would be incredibly tragic for Pokemon if a backup is restricted, but it would make sense for Nintendo to enforce that. I was in the Middle East for two years recently so I know how inconvenient the region locking is, and how tempting digital downloading is. Fire Emblem was worth it, but I'm not sure about taking the risk for Pokemon X/Y.



Silvervisiona commented on Pokémon X & Y to Catch Roughly 14,000 of Your...:

@mullen I understand your skepticism, but I have on many occasions made several backups of my SD card (for instance Fire Emblem Awakening), and the 3DS simply loads the data as a snapshot in time. I never backed up just the save file, I just backed up the entire SD card. The only way Nintendo could enforce their save data restrictions is by keeping track of save files on the 3DS itself. Maybe Animal Crossing does this, in which case my hopes have been dashed.



Silvervisiona commented on Rumour: Mario Kart 8 Coming To Wii U in April:

I hardly think it's reasonable for Nintendo to even set an internal release date so far away. They will be sure to reevaluate the market and their development during the holiday season. Then we could see it even sooner. I'm sure they would have loved to release it a few months ago if they had the chance.



Silvervisiona commented on Nintendo Download: 27th June (Europe):

We should be done with Wii. The Wii U virtual console is moving at a much slower pace than the Wii, and that is considering that most Wii U Virtual Console games have already been released for Wii. Sigh.



Silvervisiona commented on New 3DS Firmware Update 6.0.0-11U Now Live:

The timing for the save data backup is impeccable. I just spent hours last week researching and experimenting with how to merge two of my full 3DS SD cards into a 3rd bigger SD card, and miraculously was able to recover and transfer all of my save data. This certainly took some risk, considering I had over 50 games to merge. This feature would have saved me a lot of peace of mind, since it is much easier to locate and transfer save files in the updated file system. Now I am more comfortable using digital nintendo products, now that I can be more assured my progress will not vanish so easily.



Silvervisiona commented on Spin The Bottle Will Adopt A Unique Pricing St...:

This strategy sounds risky. It is common for title sales to reduce over time. Increasing the price will simply put off late adopters even more, essentially bricking sales once the increases start. Instead, the game will be purchased by the naturally early adopters, as well as late adopters, but at a reduced price. Good luck with the business decision. I probably won't be an early adopter, but would consider it if it went on sale within one year, and most definitely not if it is more expensive. Sorry.



Silvervisiona commented on "Suspicious" Box Poses Question for Arizona Po...:

Honestly, this is downright offensive given the context that the pranksters are seemingly pulling this off because of the Boston marathon shooting. I guarantee anyone involved would not appreciate this as a prank this soon after the incident. Last week would have been a much different story. It's unfortunately not a laughing matter.



Silvervisiona commented on New Legend Of Zelda Title Confirmed For Ninten...:

I'm surprised they didn't swap over to blonde Link for this one. I mean, they made an obvious hint when they bundled the blonde Link's into the Four Swords, and incorporated blonde Link's voice FX into the GBA Link to the Past. Interesting move.



Silvervisiona commented on Talking Point: Review Scores and Unwinnable Ar...:

I check the score first to give me context on the character of the game and character of the reviewer. Extreme or moderate scores add a lot of context to what to expect from the text, and prepare me to agree or discredit what they may have to say.



Silvervisiona commented on New Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC Details Battle ...:

I considering laying down some cash for the DLC, up until I realized that I can get the majority of the extra characters via SpotPass. The later DLC looks much more interesting than those that are available now, and the only draw for me would be the items and abilities. I can just watch youtube to get the sidestories.



Silvervisiona commented on Tiger Woods Is Skipping The Wii U This Year:

Honestly I'm starting to think that developers are thinking and acting like children who are afraid of life being unfair or risky. The Wii U is essentially a no brainer for supporting the PGA franchise. It would be a better if not equivalent experience compared to 360and PS3, and good games will sell!



Silvervisiona commented on Talking Point: This Fan's Tragic Tale Highligh...:

Other than the save game data being lost, Nintendo has essentially given this gamer $200 for new games, which seems like a great deal to me. Sure, maybe I would want to own and replay some of the many lost titles, but I wouldn't even want to redownload all $400 worth of games, some of which I wouldn't ever need to pick up again. Now this gamer has a choice to get anything in the Wii U store, which will eventually retain many of the Virtual Console games that may have been lost. It still does suck though. But, I kinda wish I was the one who had made that "mistake".



Silvervisiona commented on Local Multiplayer Confirmed For Pokémon Myste...:

Day 1 DLC comes courtesy of the already released Japanese content which means they are already (for the most part) developed. So, it makes sense that they should be readily available day 1. The initial pack being free is at least a nice gesture.



Silvervisiona commented on Rayman Legends No Longer a Wii U Exclusive, De...:

That's it then. Nintendo should have launched Wii U in January so that all of the REAL launch titles would come out without this current two month delay Nintendo is currently dealing with while publishing ther next batch of games. Rayman Lefends was supposed to be the system seller for me when I got my next paycheck. Now I might as well wait. Nintendo is not going to bode half as well, and for what? The chance for Ubisoft to hype up their multiplatform game that would sell just as much if they didn't wait? 6 months is an incredible length of time of lost 1st wave Wii U sales!



Silvervisiona commented on Feature: Reimagining The Wind Waker on Wii U:

I hope they don't mess with the controls. I found WW to have one of the best control schemes ever, in fluidity and satisfaction during fights. Not to mention proper dual analog sticks which WW was already designed for with the GC controller.



Silvervisiona commented on Nintendo Unveils The Legend of Zelda: Wind Wak...:

Not going to lie. This title already had kick butt controls, in addition to actually being designed for dual analog sticks, it's a perfect fit! Sounds like a great project for Nintendo to get there hands dirty in HD while they learn how to really make their games look great. This is a great filler. It's a shame I've literally completed every inch of detail and quests already...full photo gallery and everything!



Silvervisiona commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop Needs Patience:

If you can retail download Wii U games (which are indeed massive in size), there is literally no legitimate excuse not to publish the GC on Virtual Console. Too bad I already have pretty much every GC game already! Being patient isn't that big of a deal for me.



Silvervisiona commented on Wii U Selling 1.2 Games Per Console In North A...:

If someone bought a WiiU and only one game now, I guarantee they will be buying more in the future. Otherwise there would have been no motivation to buy the console to begin with. It may take me a whole year to fully save up for just the launch titles that I still want to get, but Nintendo will still get my money in the long run.



Silvervisiona commented on Jack Tretton Wishes Nintendo Every Success Wit...:

The Wii U is the best thing that Sony could hope in the near future. Wii U will ensure third party multiplatform games will continue to feed the aging PS3. The PS3 price is right for many people, and will provide a well worth investment in the coming years since the PS4 isn't coming out right away. Sony doesn't need a PS4 right away, Thanks to the Wii U breathing fresh air into the industry, Nintendo deserves nothing less than a Thank You from its competitors.



Silvervisiona commented on Wii U GamePad Will Not Have Backward Compatibi...:

The internal Wii hardware chipset is completely separate from the Wii U display system chipset. It would have been nice for the display output for TV and Gamepad to be used interchangeably, but I guess they couldn't perform a crossover between Wii and Wii U systems to get it done. It's probably saving them money, and no harm done.



Silvervisiona commented on Talking Point: Five Reasons to Buy a Wii U:

That Sun article was properly absurd. People reading the article are more likely to be interested in the Wii U due to it's deplorable credibility, as each of it's "facts" are backwards.

Cost is perfect: PS4 & XBOX720 will be incredibly more expensive and outside the market. Sony and Microsoft will be thanking Nintendo for keeping this generation alive for an extra few years. It's in their best interest to take their time developing the next gen technology. Nintendo won't put them out of business, and will give 3rd parties incentives to keep chugging out current gen games without complaining of a stale market. The Wii U is fresh!
