Spoony commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (North America):

I am looking to trade some codes for a Don't Starve code. I have:
Olli Olli for Wii U and 3DS
Mighty Switch Force for 3DS
Steam World Dig for 3DS
& Moon Chronicles Episode 1
I will trade all of these for one Don't Starve code.



Spoony commented on Review: Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons:...:

I've read the reviews, I have read the hype. I just don't get the appeal of these kinds of games. Maybe when I'm 60+ and given up on life and spend my time in bars and the bars I go to have P&D type games I will understand.



Spoony commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

I have all the 3 star gold trophies in 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc. I have a few in mirror mode. 200cc is crazy hard. I can't get enough lean in on curves to stay on the track unless I use a character and kart that can handle them, and then they usually aren't fast enough to keep up with the AI. I fly off cliffs all the time. I hit walls all the time. It's stupid hard. And I love it.



Spoony commented on Review: A-Train 3D: City Simulator (3DS eShop):

I agree with everything you said. This is a deep game, and a very rewarding one. Everything about it is well designed and rich. I would have given it a 9/10 for what it is.

Did you seriously say that you gave a game a low score because it's a niche market game? WHAT?!?!?!? That is the most BS reason ever to give a game a lower score. Just because you aren't a fan of the genre, and apparently think very little of it, doesn't mean you give it a lower score. I am disappointed NL, why not give these games to a fan of the genre to grade instead of someone who doesn't think much of it.



Spoony commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off More Xenoblade Chron...:

Yeah, I had the Wii version. It was chunky but just good enough. When I watch video of the 3DS one though, when the group is roaming, it looks super messy. I know it's amazing that it is on a handheld at all, but I just think it would drive me nuts.



Spoony commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

I highly doubt that the majority of amiibo sales are due to scalpers. You could never really prove that anyway. I have sold amiibo for profit on eBay, but I collect them too. I'm not a scalper, but if one I own becomes worth more than double than what I paid I will sell it. I think there is a lot of that going on.

So again, I HIGHLY doubt the sales are due to scalpers. It's a mixed bag.



Spoony commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

In regards to Nintendo not providing enough stock. They have sold millions of these things. MILLIONS. How many Wii U units have sold world wide? I believe that they produced enough stock based on how many compatible systems they have sold. I would put my own hard earned dollars down that if the Wii U had sold in the PS4 area of sales, there would have been a lot more amiibo on those shelves. You can't blame a company for watching numbers and basing production decisions on those numbers.

In regards to the tweet. That's how eBay works. They know it. We know it. So it's not daft of them to promote themselves in this way. In fact, it's the opposite. They just told a ton of people that you can buy one of these things there. And, if you are willing to pay that much for one and the seller doesn't end up getting one thus leaving you out in the rain, eBay terms of service cover the purchaser so that they are not left paying for something they didn't receive.

(Sunglasses drop down on my face.)
Deal with it.

So I brushed up on my "words British people use regularly" after yesterday. (Hangs head in shame) So I am making a peace offering.

Batman Year One #1 by Frank Miller NM OR Coventry #1 signed by Bill Willingham.

The choice is yours Tom, either one. Will ship to England. Have a good day.



Spoony commented on Reminder: Grab Your Free Samurott for Pokémon...:

I forgot that I downloaded Alpha Saphire. I have been reading about these codes for a while and was like "I need to get this game". Went to buy it and I already had it. Come on brain, WTF.
Now I have all three of these and am only 5 minutes in to the game!



Spoony commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:


Mario being "blacked up" isn't offensive. Maybe to white people it is. Black face comedy way back when was offensive not only for the make-up, but because people would act buffoonish and overplay black stereotypes of the day. So it was mocking with black make-up on your face. Mario himself is a caricature of an Italian. So it could be argued that his existence at all is racist or offensive.

The Mario with the darkened skin in that picture is not offensive or racist. Neither is the snake charmer, the mariachi, or any of the other depictions. If one is offended by that, they are trying too hard to be offended.



Spoony commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

It's click bait. The phrase "come on Nintendo, you're better than this" is a window into just how ridiculous the whole thing is. It's not like it just happened. This was a long time ago.

This person just wants attention and you gave it tothem. I wish this was like Reddit so I could help down vote this article.



Spoony commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

I spent all night playing this with my son, here's how I feel.
I spent $10 on a game I couldn't get before yesterday for less than $40. It is directly on my Wii U home screen, easy to launch, and a ton of fun! This is the first game I have played WITH my son. He loved having the second Wii remote and picking up all the star bits for me.

It's $10 right now, and even at $20 is a really good deal. Is it any different than the original? No. Is it still totally f--king rad and super f--king cool that it is on my Wii U? Yes it is.



Spoony commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Hits Japan on 29th April:

All I have to do is not find out I have Stage 4 cancer and I will be set! Just have to live through this year.


(Also this means no flying, train trips, drinking too much, long car rides, riding on horseback, getting into knife fights, getting into pistol fights, trying to jump into the pool from the trampoline, agitating alligators, screaming at bears, flipping off men larger than myself, or putting mentos in 2L soda bottles.)



Spoony commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

I think they made the right choice. The 3DS XL sold more units in the U.S.A. and was overall much more popular with consumers. If they did a small run of the smaller size unit they could be perceived as yet again not supplying enough stock. If the units sat on shelves, big stores would not purchase more stock until the unpopular units were sold off.

It's a business decision. They are making decisions to better their business.

So vote with your dollar. Don't like the New 3DS XL, then don't buy it.

Meanwhile, the rest of us can move on with getting down to some sweet sweet NN3DS action while you suckers mope!
