All things aside, that article photo has given me the want to play Star Fox again. That's a really cool picture...

Was discussing today with my friend how cool it would be to have an open-world metroid-vania style star fox where you upgrade your ship and stuff.... Hell I even threw the idea out that a Metroid/Star Fox crossover would be great...

I drooled all over the place. I am beyond excited for this and I really hope something comes out of it. It's a real shame that Nintendo threatens the making of these. I get that a "prequel" can change the course of their IP but the fans want a damn metroid game — myself included.
WILL be watching this and crossing every body part I can that it sees the light of day.

For those missing streetpasses, locate the AT&T wifi hotspots in your area and go there. Create a wireless connection profile for the AT&T hotspots in one of your 3 connections in settings and there you go. I am obsessed with streetpassing and I actually base my walk to work around these hotspots. I snake my way through the streets waiting a moment outside these locations until I see the green light. Just a thought! Try it out. I've gotten TONS this way.

I personally could care less for achievements but if Nintendo could somehow leverage them differently than Playstation or Xbox then that would be cool. I remember when I first got my Xbox 360 years ago and I got an achievement. I thought that was currency to spend on the Xbox live store. Would be cool if Nintendo could do something like that indeed...

Oh man... Crossing fingers for Nintendo. I'm also hoping it takes on a higher bit than 8-bit but if it turns out to be 8 then that's okay too. (I'm one of those people who likes Mega Man X games rather than mega man due to the preferable art style and armor customization).

So excited for this! I LOVE Castlevania and Castlevania-esque lore!!

So, is this just like... killing titans? Don't get me wrong, I love the show and I love the concept of it, but I hope there's some more..."meat"... to the deal.
Who am I kidding, i'll be buying it regardless most likely because this is the first anime I've watched ritually since Gundam Wing and Dragon Ball Z on Toonami. I'm just curious as to what else goes on when you're not wrangling up those naked bipeds.

If I had a Wii U, Paper Mario would be the one I get. Since I don't have one YET, I'll be finally taking the leap into Tensei IV.
What I'm really hoping for is a Mario Maker Wii U bundle in September!!! ::crossing fingers::

This looks like a really good game! Judging from the gameplay SCREENSHOTS...... It seems the camera is in a bit close to the ship so hopefully we can see far enough away from the ship to avoid cheap deaths. Otherwise, I'm quite excited about this!

As I said I would, I bought this last night and I'm definitely in agreement with a lot of others — so far, I think this game deserves better than a 6. I beat the first 2 worlds and am into the third and although it is a bit easy at first, it's definitely showing signs of getting more difficult. Very glad I made the purchase and I intend to give this a good few more hours this weekend. Also, really like the Smash Bros. font! It's making me want to play that again too... ☺️

TerrapinJess commented on Review: Cube Creator 3D (3DS eShop):

I'm not against this at all but I just wonder how Samsung and Apple have fought in court over over their products being so similar and it was way less similar than this game is to Minecraft... Crazy!
I played the demo last night and I felt it could be very fun! I can't shake the feeling though that if I buy this, it'll just make me want to go play Minecraft (still haven't bought it or played it for more than 3 minutes)

So many SNES classics left out.... Oh well. If this means more N64 (such as Mischief Makers, Bomberman 64, Excitebike 64, Castlevania 64, this will potentially be a massive list, etc.) then yes, leave the oldies behind and bring in the new!

It still sort of gets me angry that I can't play these awesome handheld games on my handheld but am forced to play them either at home on the TV or on the game pad. It will boggle my mind forever why they didn't release them onto the 3DS at least alongside the Wii U.
Oh well, I'll be getting this when I get a Wii U!

TerrapinJess commented on Review: DOOORS (3DS eShop):

I personally hate when I see a smartphone game ported over to the 3DS. This includes how the final fantasy games got the same treatment. To me, there's just something about it that makes it lose its value and depth. Therefore, I will always prefer a dedicated handheld gaming device for actual games rather than little throwaway experiences.
How is this game? I have no idea I just know that I have a bad connotation with it already...

I thoroughly enjoyed this article as it perfectly out into words what I do every day. It makes me feel so much better about being the creep who stands outside buildings waiting for the green blinking light. Knowing there are others on the same quest makes me very happy!
streetpass is such an awesome addition to an already awesome handheld and I'm glad it's being used so it has a better chance of being included in next generation handhelds.

@Asaki I definitely get how that could put some cold hard weight behind an achievement like that! I definitely think that even 15 or 20 at a time would be good though too.
I've actually never been to a big event like that where I'd need to keep clearing out my queue but I just imagine I wouldn't be too happy after about the 3rd run. I'd imagine just giving all attention to puzzle pieces only.
This new update will surely help with speed though - I got it yesterday and got to use it this morning and it's really cool. I'm digging the new speech bubbles and birthday tags! Very good idea, Nintendo!

@russellohh I wish in the worst way they would allow a queue larger than 10 at a time... Imagine those gaming events (PAX, E3, etc.) where street passing is probably at its best. I can imagine you'd be glued to your screen for hours trying to get the most bang for your buck with all those passes... Maybe in the future they'll allow it; I hope so at least.

And otherwise, I own all the originals so I'm really hoping we get this discount too. To be honest despite the differences in releases and stuff between EU and NA, I'd be surprised if they didn't offer this to NA too... Here's to hoping!

TerrapinJess commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (North America):

I'll be getting a Wii U soon so I'll get DK64 without a doubt then, but I will absolutely be getting the StreetPass goodies today. I think StreetPass is one of my favorite 3DS features - if you do a google search for info on these StreetPass things, look for a Gamefaqs forum thread about it. Some people with Japanese 3DS' already have it and it sounds worth it to have VIP if you StreetPass frequently.
You'll get plaza tickets for birthday streetpasses, can skip greetings, apply wallpaper to your greeting text, etc. — pretty neat.

TerrapinJess commented on ​Atlus Reveals its DLC Plans for Shin Megami...:

I had Overclocked way back in the days of the original small 3DS. For whatever reason, I stopped playing it for a bit and forgot what I was doing when I went back so I decided to trade it in.... Really itching for an anime-RPG, I purchased Overclocked since its on sale again this month and I have to admit, I can't put it down. I seriously haven't been this involved with a game in quite some time (besides Pokemon Alpha Sapphire).Therefore, I am absolutely buying this game at some point after its release. I'm really not happy about the price so I may wait until it goes on sale but I'm going to be very tempted until I eventually do get it. That's some cool-sounding DLC too and the game looks like it's coming along great!

I was actually kind of mad with the fact they are giving Mario Kart 7 away as a platinum reward for club Nintendo (which I have redeemed) and now they are selling it for cheap. IF I HAD KNOWN this would be... I would have gotten something else and gladly paid $20 for MK7. Oh well... Luck of the draw.

TerrapinJess commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

@Quorthon I won't argue your valid points and historical data I just feel as if it's too early...
Look, I myself got rid of my Wii u after being fed up with their trickle release of virtual console games and for lack-of-better-words MEDIOCRE first party games so I'm all for a "refresh" as long as it involves a refresh of the way they do business as well. I do regret getting rid of it now with Zelda and Xenoblade on the horizon but still, that leaves very few reasons to get the Wii U. I'm beyond satisfied with the 3DS as thats my go-to-- I literally have a ps4 sitting and collecting dust and a Wii that I play for Wii sports occasionally which ends up being more often that my ps4 even gets turned on. All I'm saying is it does seem a bit early for a new system and even moreso, shocking, they'd mention "The Wii U will persevere!" and then go ahead and mention a new system is coming! If it's true, more power to you I was just throwing in my two cents about analysts and how they are often just self-proclaimed normal people who do simple google searches without any proven first-hand information. Anyway, happy gaming and here's to hoping for a more robust library (and backwards compatibility) next time around!

TerrapinJess commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

@Quorthon but this still doesn't make you an "analyst." I see what you are saying but these are all quick insights that can be googled. We want some information from the inside, something tangible, something not obtainable through "Nintendo release history."
I'm torn between hoping they make another system soon and continuing the Wii u. If the new system is backwards compatible, I'm in. They should pave the way for if you get the physical copy, get the digital for $5 more or free or whatever... In this world, we want portable, not session portable but shin megami/fire emblem/etc quality stuff but on the go if possible.
