Vader_MIB commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

I agree on the fact that there is a big problem of how to own the game you download on the eShop. I will never buy a digital game on my Nintendo system for high price. As soon as your system fails, you loose the game.
For that high price, i am old school: only physical copy. If they offer me a cartridge with Affordable Space Adv. for 40 euros, i would buy it. 20 euros digital: hack no. Even worse if the game exists in another country as a cartridge, like Ace Attorney Dual Destiny. I will NEVER buy it, regardless of the price, if it is not brought to me in France as in the USA as a physical game.



Vader_MIB commented on Bravely Second Offers Over 100 Hours Of Gamepl...:

I was playing Bravely Default very recently, following the very good critics it got from everywhere... Enjoyable game, until you have to repeat everything... I just quit after 50 hours. Unbearable boredom. Really. I had to stop, i would not stand it anymore. I invested much time and just could not finish it. So sorry, i won't fall for the second.



Vader_MIB commented on Let's Educate Parents About Mature Titles, Sug...:

When i bought a PS4 for my nephews last Christmas, i made sure their parents, who are absolutely not gamers, understand that there is an age rating on games. I told them they must follow this rule, as not being aware of modern days games. Just because they are not knowledgeable, there is an age rating to help them, and so they can at least rely on something.
For those who just don't believe the stories, when i was a kid, it took me some time to forget about Predator movie. And this was a movie, less immersive than games.
And don't tell me than even as adults, you sometimes do not think of JAWS when going for swimming.
My kids will play Nintendo. And if their friends tell them COD is so good, i will invite all those to have evening Splatoon party.



Vader_MIB commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I don't think Nintendo needs any advertisement from Youtubers to sell their games. They make enough buzz before being released, to be sold out day one. So, unlike other AAA games and other publishers, Nintendo does not need them. So why bother. Efforts, creativity and every penny comes from Nintendo at the beginning, it is then fair enough that others don't make money on that.



Vader_MIB commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (Europe):

Hey guy, Europe is not UK :D I am in France and also waiting for Shovel Knight and all... And having to spend more money too...
Anyway, maybe Squids this week... Maybe...
I will see after Japan Expo.



Vader_MIB commented on Feature: Celebrating 25 Years Of A Legendary F...:

@ChessboardMan Final Fantasy Adventure. Remaked as Sword of Mana on GBA.
Final Fantasy Legend 2 is one of my best RPG memory. The story is so good to live, traveling to so many places, and top musics. The final boss was tough !
I still own FFA, FF Legend 1, 2 and 3. And I all imported them to France when I was a kid. Not easy but those games !



Vader_MIB commented on Review: Golden Sun (Wii U eShop):

One simple advice: wait for number 2 to be released before buying this one. This is great game, but the developers left DS players with a cliffhanger without sequel some years. Be careful, this game needs Golden Sun 2. (i love the games, but if they don't release n°2 at the end, don't complain).



Vader_MIB commented on The Nintendo eShop Is Like Paradise, Says Imag...:

There is definititely a lot of crap also in 3DS eshop, this guy seems to forget it. If I had not Nintendo Life warning me sometime with good reviews of poopoodoodoocacapoopledoople games, i would have spend money on those and left the eshop at once from angriness...



Vader_MIB commented on Capcom Expects A Significant Decline in Packag...:

Just to share my very recent experience regarding digital. Yesterday, i played Dragon's Crown on my Vita, which memory card contains saves from hard copies of games but also several digitally bought titles. In my evening commute by bus, my memory card just crashed. Vita was ignoring it or restarting every 5 minutes saying memory card was removed... So I lost my saves and digitally bought games. For the games, it is OK. They are linked to my Sony account.
But what if my 3DS dies and i cannot transfer the games (because they are linked to a system, not an account)...? Lost. Money lost, time lost...
So i was quite reluctant to buy digital copies, but i did following several very interesting deals and wanting some games like Friday Monsters. Now, I will do only for very cheap games, most probably on phones. For the rest, either hard copy, or too bad for the editor, but no game. I want Ace Attorney, but i won't buy it. Simple. Too much torture for the customer.



Vader_MIB commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

The good job is true for their own games. Totally untrue for 3rd party games for which you are just unlucky if you are not from Japan or at least from the US. Nice consideration for customers. And instead of spending my money on my 3DS, i already shifted part of my game consumption to the Vita. Not long before i just switch completely.



Vader_MIB commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

So if i want Code of Princess in France, i have to download it and cannot have the boxed version as in the US. And what about Etrian Odyssey IV we are still waiting for ? (The 2 and 3 on DS were even never released in Europe, so God bless the non region locked DS ! Same with Radiant Historia). I just bought Muramasa Rebirth for my Vita from the US and i pre ordered Dragon's Crown. I am very happy with Sony's position of NON region lock for the Vita. I will end playing with my 3DS and switch to the Vita in some days thanks to high consideration from Nintendo for European players...
And why all of a sudden locking the 3DS after the DS, GBA and GB not having this restriction...?
Ah, and i forgot the nice localisation of Devil Summoner recently. You wait, long, and you end with a bugged version of a game! Yeah, marvellous.
