The name really makes it sound like a free-to-play game... after Trozei and now Rumble getting that treatment it was expectable that PMD would get the same. I really like the series, so I'm a bit worried at how "playable" the game would be for free. There will be likely little to no story if that's the case.

Comments discrediting the run for using glitches incoming.

And adding to why he's using the Japanese VC, it's because the glitch that he uses to get the bottle relies on an emulation bug. The chinese iQue does have faster text and less lag, but that glitch crashes the game.

Yiffy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Region-Free Exploit Now Tweak...:

"no online gaming"

Like I said on the previous article, that's actually wrong, you can play online as long as the games themselves are updated. And from the major games I think only Smash and Monster Hunter got updates since then.

Yiffy commented on 3DS Flashcard Users Playing ROMs Online Report...:

Worth noting that people banned were all using public headers, which is the kind of "CD key" on Nintendo games. That is, on their servers it's like hundreds of people were playing the very same game online. To have a private header you'd need a legit cart from a game with online capabilities in first place AND be able to dump it, which actually needs a Gateway (and defeats the purpose for most people since you'll have to actually buy a game on most cases). So almost all people reporting bans were Sky3DS users (which can't really do anything itself as it doesn't exploit the system directly, instead it pretends to be a legit game, so you'd need another GW user to dump a private header for you). There are other ways to avoid ban like using CIAs or something, but I won't get into detail (and they don't seem like a long therm safety precaution).

I don't pirate on 3DS, but if I did, I wouldn't play online for safety purposes. It was just a matter of time until Nintendo admitted defeat on security and took the Sony/Microsoft route of banning. There's the logging rumor but I myself think it's bs.

Yiffy commented on Speedrunner Sets New World Record for Fastest ...:

Wow, people still can't draw the line between speedrunning and casual gaming. Here's a spoon-feed, go to the Leaderboards and search for "no cloud" or "glitchless", the Any% records are still ~11 minutes.

@Trippinator That'll keep happening as long Kotaku/etc posts about speedrunning, especially ones like this. Remember Cosmo's one, or the TASBot plaing SMB2?

Yiffy commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

This wouldn't be a big issue for me, if eShop BR's prices weren't a big joke on major games while digital-only and more obscure stuff are actually cheaper than US/CA. There's a very slim chance they'll fix that since the digital copies don't have to match local prices anymore (since they'll cease to exist). But it feels unlikely since despite showing in Reais, not only the prices are ridiculous, but you can't even pay with non-International cards, and the same cards can buy games on CA eshop for R$~45 less (~19.78 CAD, 16.77 USD). You almost have zero reason not to register your NNID on Canada if it's fresh (I'll have a few losses if I do, but I'm considering it). There's also the OR/AS demo that took like 3 days longer to arrive on the BR eshop than it did on US/CA.

tl;dr if they fix the eShop, I may forgive them for the time being

(also I'm definitively jumping off the boat for the next generation of portable consoles, if nothing is done about this)

Yiffy commented on Fancy Pattern Vivillon To Be Distributed Follo...:

Apparently about 200,000 Vivillons have been traded since the event's first announce, wow. And it seems the old problem of your Vivillon not showing up publicly on the GTS due to high traffic of them have returned.
