@Spoony_Tech I forgot to mention that was a week or so ago. Persona Q outright refuses to have price drops on it, I'm still seeing the LE at $120, actually going up slightly in price.

Then again, the retailer I went to has a knack of having price swings. Rune Factory IV doubled in price back to $40, EO IV and DS Overclocked jumped back to $30, all while SMT IV fell to $20 from $40...



TheWPCTraveler commented on Review: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Kn...:

@Spoony_Tech ...and more than half of my 3DS games are published by Atlus...

I'd buy that excuse if they somehow gave us dual audio, though, especially for Persona Q and DS2 Record Breaker. I mean, they can do dual-audio already...for the music, not the voice acting, in EO.

@River3636 Ah, I see. Then again, I prefer not having to walk through a town.
I mean, considering how EO is as a dungeon crawler, I'd rather not have to deal with that structure in towns.

Then again, a real-time EO would be can see all enemy encounters, not just FOEs, and they actually move around in real-time, just like you. Not only that, you have to draw the map, and the game won't stop for you...



TheWPCTraveler commented on Review: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Kn...:

@River3636 EO3U has sailing, so I doubt that they wouldn't skimp out on it and not put an overworld map.
@zipmon Hey, I like sound of that. Though, there's one thing missing...once they finish work on that #FE spin-off, they should work on something in the vein of Radiant Historia...
@Spoony_Tech I thought I'd share something with you.
I found the first print edition of Persona Q selling for ~$40 alongside one without the extras for $50.
It was strange, considering how they were actually selling just the game for $40 until the distributor got a wind of it and made them put it at $50.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Video: Splatoon Co-Director Tsubasa Sakaguchi ...:

They didn't ask if he was a kid or a squid.

Very disappointed in those children.

@rjejr You know, they could launch the Nintendo handheld first, then after lots of them have been sold, they can announce a Nintendo console that those handhelds can be paired with!

I realized this just as I read your comment - the bonus is they don't have to bundle a tablet controller with every unit!

I feel like a genius!
Thanks you.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Nintendo Is Planning Its Own Loot Crate-Style ...:

@MrGawain They do it...only in Japan™

Seriously, if they just made their Fire Emblem soundtracks available, I'd be all over them!
Well, the ones for Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Fates. And Blazing Sword, and Sacred Stones, and Sword of Seals...
I want to stop, but I can't.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Yo-Kai Watch Busters and 3DS Continue to Rule ...:

It's official, Splatoon has done a nice job to nab hardware sales, but the question is what else are those owners buying?

They clearly aren't buying Mario Kart at a fervent pace, and neither are they buying Smash for U, so what's going on?



TheWPCTraveler commented on The Miiverse Redesign Has Gone Live:

@InklingSplat8 I stand firm to my stance.

However, I agree with what you said. Some of those people have elected to stay behind and post less, and far more on-topic.
I could've used a term that is easier to the ears, but I believe that regardless of the term I use, it seems that Nintendo is bent on culling a lot of the off-topic discussion.
There are people who admit to using the platform for FNaF role-playing(!)



TheWPCTraveler commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

@Darknyht I'd rather call it the NEPTUNE, and its controller, the NEPGEAR! If you're going to name a console, you may as well reel in Compile Heart and nab yourself a cute set of mascots.
NEP = Nintendo Entertainment Platform

Contrary to popular expectations, I believe that this confirms NX to be a handheld, though.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

@shani Oops, didn't see that.

OT: I don't care, just reel in the niche Japanese devs that keep the Vita alive.

Call it the NEPtune, or something, so you could reel Idea Factory in! That's one publisher down.
And, yes, I'm aware that it may spell out Nintendo Entertainment Platform.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

@rjejr I hate to break it to you, or point it out to you when someone else did, but MK8 already sold more than 5.11 million copies.

This was without a competitively-priced bundle. (3D World and NSMBU/NSLU had them, and actually shipped less life-to-date. Same goes for Nintendo Land despite being bundled in nearly every Wii U nowadays.)



TheWPCTraveler commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

@rferrari24 This is big news, actually. We'll see how Q1 FY2016 pans out.

I believe that hardware is weaker than anticipated, which is a given since this is Nintendo we're talking about, but software outperforms (again), thanks to kids and squids everywhere!



TheWPCTraveler commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

Here's a list of "holes" Nintendo has left unfilled thus far for the Wii U:

  • Nintendo Wars/Fire Emblem (250k+ sales per entry, probably more due to Awakening): No new efforts
  • F-Zero/Wave Race/Excite (500k+ sales per entry, probably): Fast Racing Neo and no one else!
  • Metroid (500k+ sales per entry, more due to HYPE): No new efforts
  • Rhythm Heaven (250k+ sales per entry on home console): No new efforts, ditto for Elite Beat Agents/Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!

There are more holes they can fill if they actually gave a damn.
It's possible to make these sorts of games with small teams (see Shin'en and Fast Racing Neo)



TheWPCTraveler commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

@Quorthon I know you're a developer (if I am to believe some of your prior posts), but come on now.

The developer, in this instance, should have been as transparent as possible, and that is what is riling people up.
Fine, you think Wii U is a turd, and is the primary reason behind this event transpiring. I respect that. But, the developer has to answer to the people who funded the development in the first place - which in this case, are the people who Kickstarted the title.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

On one hand, Nintendo of America sucks but at least they keep their localizations faithful, as of late.

On the other hand, XSEED is a far better publisher and localization team than NoA themselves, so I'm happy that this happened.

That said, NoA needs an overhaul.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

This title certainly won't benefit from lots of people downplaying it on other platforms before this came to light, that's for sure.

Now, it'll have one more headwind - that of Nintendo fans downplaying the release!

It's a shame, the Zombi franchise had potential.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Review: Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburb...:

I'm either more German than you are, which is impossible, or I like trains, which I don't.

I actually had fun with the demo, because it's surprisingly hard to get a train to stop where you want it to be. Actually, it shouldn't be if you have a grasp of physics, but here I am struggling.

I guess I finally get the appeal behind games like Euro Truck Simulator.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

@Spoony @Spoony_Tech Huh? You two aren't the same person? I'm having trouble processing this information.

OT: I'd take more risks if I could find a $50 eShoo card where I live. I know I'll milk a lot put of A-Train 3D and that train sim on the 3DS eShop.
I'd also take more risks if Atlus stops its ridiculous release schedule. I swear, I'll end up buying more games from Atlus than every other publisher combined this year at this rate.



TheWPCTraveler commented on Muppets Creator Responsible For Those Amazing ...:

@bezerker99 "This game will probably do well anyway"

No, it won't. We already have Nintendo Land, Wii Party (with) U, and Mario Party 10 plus the Wii Sports titles.
It doesn't appeal much to Animal Crossing fans, either.

Besides, I doubt this'll be sold like Happy Home Designer. It'll be free, most likely.
