Nice to hear it supports Classic and that the costumes are there from the start. Any excuse to replay this masterpiece is welcome.

Protip: get the Moon of Maha Kahla as soon as you can. my first playthrough would have been a lot easier with it.

The rubber on my original comes off occasionally, but it has not happened even once with Smash Bros.

But all that line adjusting on Yumi's Odd Odyssey was the main reason the rubber came off in the first place.

sinalefa commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

I never had a Gamecube, so my memories of it would be when I got my Wii to play Brawl and I took the chance to hunt down some GCN games for it: Luigi's Mansion, Soul Calibur II, Viewtiful Joe 2 and REmake. I borrowed Pikmin 1, Melee and Sunshine too.

Other games like Metroid Prime, RE4 and Twilight Princess I played them via the updated Wii versions

@rjejr

I don't see why they cannot release both games on the same day, as they are each system's Holiday game and system seller.

But still I won't believe this until we have official confirmation from Nintendo. Only thing I know is that Smash U should not miss Black Friday.

And if their big holiday game does not have a date, it is no wonder Captain Toad does not have one either.

@Anthracks

After seeing the huge support for Mighty No 9, games of this kind are not as endangered as it seems, specially with Capcom ignoring Megaman.

Besides, I have a limited budget and I can't support each and every dev. I got Siesta Fiesta, Scram Kitty, Armillo, Guacamelee, etc. on day 1 to support them.

When the old models are long forgotten you say? Well, the kid will ask for a 3DS and they will get him a new 3DS because the old models are long out of print and worth a lot to collectors. Plus the kid will have a lot of time to do his homework, probably seeing a "non new" 3DS with as much curiosity as we look at a phat DS now, as belonging to a museum.

The clearance kid may have a tougher time, but as in your video he would pick it up the floor and still have fun because it is his new 3DS.

I think Nintendo is doing the "new" in the logo match the font for amiibo to set it apart.

I did think on that. On how many people dying for a demo did not get it, while the resident NL demo hater gets the email and ends up sharing demos with other people. And I won't lie, I was very excited when I checked my phone and the email was there.

Glad to hear Valor's story had a happy ending.

Of course it is a mistake. Capcom does not want to know anything about the Wii U anymore and we are all aware of that.

And after their "Revelaitons" typo and the Okami cover with the IGN watermark, is not like Capcom is particularly careful with this stuff.

I know you get Mighty Gunvolt if you get this before Nov. 28th, so since I got a Mighty Gunvolt code for backing Mighty No 9, then I think I can wait for a sale on this one and still get the whole package. I have a ton of games as is anyway so I can wait.

Well, if this finally shuts you up about when dual Gamepad support is coming, I am all for it ;)

Anyway, the biggest hurdle is using the second stick and their extra button when you click them. In this case the New 3DS would clearly have the advantage, as it already has 4 triggers and a second stick built in, plus Amiibo.

And I disagree about the name. There is always someone complaining about weird non descript names confusing consumers, and now they nail it IMO (as this is indeed a NEW 3DS) and people still complain? If the old models are cheaper, they will stay there, but for me the logical thing would be to replace them. Yet DSi never replaced DS Lite.

sinalefa commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

I got the email and I already distributed the extra codes among my friends, because "I fight for my friends" ;)

Anyway, there were a ton of 1 time users who appeared out of nowhere just to try to get a code here yesterday and are nowhere to be found now. Just check the two related articles and their near 2,000 comments.

In any case, everyone will get the demo on due time. I never got the Tomodachi one, and that one is open to everyone now. I usually am not too hot on demos but I like this one because there is no way I can live off this instead of getting the game, my main gripe with demos.

As with W101, this confirms the purchase of a game I knew I would always get, but the early access does not hurt.

sinalefa commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (North America):

@rjejr

I am not sure how many hours I have logged in, but I know I am like in the beginning of the third world. The cave levels are particularly hard. The game is cute and I don't mind brutal difficulty most of the time IF I like the gameplay.

About Wooden, I haven't taken the plunge. All the metacritic reviews point to an average game, with a metascore of 63. If you are gonna get a hard game for that price, add two bucks and get Scram Kitty, my eShop GOTY. Or get Armillo, even if you don't like the graphics.

For a moment I thought they would make a new game together, like Affordable Space Adventures. Maybe in the future?

And now that I got a new HD for my Wii U, there is no excuse for not downloading Stick it to the Man.

@JellySplat

I said I loved the first game, but hated the demo for the second one. Sorry if the wording was not clear at first.

I know the games are very similar, but again I feel the hold triggers zigzag way too much now, specially in the Field stages, so it is very easy to miss inputs that were a piece of cake in the first game.
