Looks too cheap, I think I'll stick with the Figma figure
ZBomber commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:
Really wanted to go but tickets have been sold out for my local show, and I can't even find anyone scalping tickets for it.
ZBomber commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:
Amazing list of rewards but I am getting really antsy over the site not working atm
ZBomber commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:
This is the first game I ever played and I never knew about this. Huh...
ZBomber commented on Bidding Hits $100,000 on Uber-Rare NES Game, S...:
@ikki5 Yeah, that was a stupid question, not sure why anyone would donate this to Nintendo for free.
ZBomber commented on The Bomber's Notebook Will Be Revamped in The ...:
The "Bombers" were the source of my username (Z=Zelda, Bomber), over 14 years ago when I joined a Zelda forum. The N64 Zelda games have always been very special to me. Can't wait to see what changes they make to the 3DS version.
ZBomber commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:
Though I am a huge Zelda fan, I never played this game until last year when I bought it on virtual console. I had a lot of fun playing it, and some parts were very challenging, but the trophy collecting aspect... man, I don't know how people could complete that, it takes forever! I try to 100% complete all Zelda games, but I had to put that one down after awhile for the last dozen or so collectibles. One day, one day....
ZBomber commented on Two Tetris Titles Pulled From the 3DS eShop in...:
I probably would have bought this just to own it if I knew it would be discontinued in NA too. Oh well, there are better versions of Tetris out there.
ZBomber commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (North America):
Not sure if I should get Shovel Knight on Wii U or 3DS. Hmm...
ZBomber commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:
I never cared for Gen 3, even the remakes bored me. I voted Red and Blue, but G/S/HG/SS and X/Y were all great.
ZBomber commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:
I voted for Wii U, but honestly the single player is lacking compared to the Melee/Brawl. However, when it comes to multiplayer, Wii U all the way.
ZBomber commented on Club Nintendo Adds Two 3DS Game Card Cases and...:
Cool to see new physical rewards, but I'm gonna pass. Shirt looks decent enough, but not for 700 coins. Plus large might be a bit too big for me.
ZBomber commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):
Probably the worst game to come out this year. I'm sure the creator is probably a 16 year old in high school (or at least has the mentality of one), but one day when he grows up he is going to have to live with the fact that at one point in his life he thought he was really cool and funny for making this game. Hopefully, he'll have matured to the point where he just feels ashamed and embarrassed whenever he thinks back on it.
ZBomber commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:
I had 7 amiibos cancelled by TRU this morning. The worst part? I had all of them (except Lucario obviously) pre-ordered at Amazon, but cancelled it because of the BOGO 40% off deal. And from what I hear, they basically cancelled all the orders so they didn't have to honor it.
Spent the rest of today frantically trying to track down the 7 I need. Had to import Falcon and Pit, and did the same with Rosalina and Lucario. I'm not dealing with these stupid retailer exclusives anymore, and I'm not giving them my money if they are going to be shady.
ZBomber commented on HORI's GameCube-Inspired Pikachu Controller Ar...:
Just pre-ordered. Got the Mario and Luigi one when Smash came out. I don't need them for Smash WiiU, but I can use it with Brawl at least since the gamecube controller adapter doesn't work with that game (yet).
ZBomber commented on North American Release Date Confirmed for Duck...:
Awesome! Gonna be an instant download for me, and play it with family later that day.
ZBomber commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:
@AlmightyDerek Why do they annoy you? They take a fun game and put a competitive spin on it. Never understood why people hate on the professional players, the game has ALWAYS been very accessible to everyone even when there was a deeper meta game like in Melee. They aren't affecting you or your enjoyment of the game.
I like the new edge mechanics at any rate, I think it is much more entertaining/rewarding when someone goes off the ledge to try and spike someone. Never was a fan of ledge hogging in the older games, but I do love watching the pros play.
ZBomber commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:
@rolzup Nope, it was always 2015. It's coming out at the same time as the other retail exclusives (Lucario, Meta Knight, etc) in the third wave. The second wave (Luigi, Pit, Zelda, Little Mac, Falcon), which just came out yesterday, was announced and available for preorder a long time ago. Target only just officially announced that they will be the retailer to carry Rosalina yesterday, so that is probably why people are going to the store and asking for it. It is more of an issue on Target's part than Nintendo's, since it doesn't actually have a release date on their website (along with the other 2015 wave 3 figures). Pre-orders haven't gone up for this yet, so you nor anyone else has missed out on it.
@rolzup Rosalina didn't come out with the latest wave, this one will be coming in 2015.
@JaxonH That's what I figured. Rosalina is the only one I need too. I wasn't planning on buying all these when they were first announced, and I'm still not sold on the value of their in-game usage, but so far I've pre-ordered every single one and they make really cool collectibles.
Is it actually sold out online or was it never actually put up for sale yet? The other figures in that wave also say not available for ordering.
ZBomber commented on Review: GetClose: A Game for RIVALS (Wii U eShop):
This sounds really awesome, and is refreshing to see a cool concept done right from an indie developer. Will be buying this as soon as I get out of work today!
ZBomber commented on Nintendo's New Response: Some amiibo "Likely" ...:
lol, I'm pretty sure Nintendo doesn't even know what's going on with the availability of their products anymore.
ZBomber commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:
ZBomber commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:
I've ordered every single one released/announced so far, but I think it is pretty dumb to discontinue them so soon if this is true. Some people won't have enough money to get them now, and people are going to be looking to get amiibos after the holidays when they DO have the funds.
They should have at least waited until the third wave came out early next year before discontinuing them imo.
ZBomber commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:
This is ridiculous. I ordered mine from Gamestop (I'm in the US) a month before it came out. Went to the midnight release and was told they didn't have any of the adapters. Luckily, the cashier let me exchange my order for the last game/adapter bundle they had, so I do have one, but Nintendo should know better. If you can't even fulfill preorders for an item, why even bother taking preorders to begin with? The adapter was met with a lot of fanfare when it was announced, why they would think only a couple people would buy it worldwide is beyond me.
ZBomber commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:
@drewb0203 It was included in a special 3DS bundle this year, and was also 15 dollars for just the game at one of the stores (wal mart or target I think)
ZBomber commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Version...:
@UltraLaserTen Just had this happen to me last night actually, thought it was pretty weird. Was on one of the routes outside the town with the first gym you challenge.
ZBomber commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:
I have to be honest that I regret blindly buying the season pass before even playing the game. I had a lot of fun with it for the first 20 hours or so, playing through the legendary mode and then some of the adventure maps. But at this point, I am so tired of the game. It is so repetitive and some parts just way too difficult unless you grind for a long time to get a high enough level character (and that takes forever, especially since some modes require a certain character). While I appreciate the company putting so much content into the base game and the DLC, I'm never even going to come close to completing everything in the base game. I have no reason to even try and play through the DLC... especially now that Smash U is out.
ZBomber commented on Retro City Rampage Gets Beefed Up on WiiWare W...:
@manu0 Really? What did they do to update/change it?
ZBomber commented on Showcase: Exploring Runbow - The Depths of 13A...:
Looks really promising, definitely going to follow the progress on this one. Always looking for more fun games to play on game nights with friends.
ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:
@rjejr Yeah, the game that will go on sale on the eshop next month isn't related to the Pokemon TCG programs released on PC and Apple products.(The article is kind of confusing, they really should add GBC in there). The GBC game uses the first 3 sets of Pokemon cards (Base Set, Jungle, and Fossil; basically the first 151 pokemon) where the new one uses the modern day TCG, which has over 700 Pokemon and I'm guessing different rules/cards/strategies. I haven't played FF8 yet so I'm not sure how similar it is to that, but I would definitely recommend checking out videos of it on Youtube before buying it. Honestly it is a bit dated at this point, but I imagine if you or your kids are big Pokemon fans, especially of the original generation, they might get some enjoyment out of it. The big draw of the GBC game is the story mode, where you build your own deck(s) and use it to beat gym leaders. But again, the game originally came out in 1998 in Japan so it is pretty limited in terms of what content is in it. The free TCG doesn't have a story mode as far as I know, but the content is a lot more extensive and (I think) you can battle friends, which I don't believe you'll be able to do with the GBC version.Here is a random video of the game just to get an idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktwdl_UmqbY
@rjejr Pokemon Trading Card game on the GBC was a lot different from the TCG app they're offering now. You controlled a character that went around to each "gym" challenging people, collecting cards and decks and badges. The GBC version was like an actual video game based around the trading card game, while the one Nintendo offers now is basically a simulator of the actual trading card game. People that didn't play the game back in the day should probably pass, as (I imagine) the TCG has changed much since 1998. However, for people like myself who grew up with the original series and this game, its a nice throwback. I'm not interested in learning the new TCG but I still have great memories of the original version, so I will definitely pick it up when it comes on the eShop.
That said, I agree the $5.99 price point is way too expensive.
ZBomber commented on This Super-Cute Toon Link Nendoroid is Looking...:
This has been available for pre-order since MAY. What is up with this site today and the outdated news? The gamecube controllers, the mega evolutions and now this? I love this site and check multiple times per day, but you guys gotta step up your game.
ZBomber commented on These GameCube-style Mario Bros. Controllers O...:
These have been on sale on Amazon for awhile now. They also actually had the Nov 21 release date before Smash was officially announced by Nintendo as well.
ZBomber commented on Ocarina of Time gets a 2D Makeover:
Anyone remember when a team tried to do something similar to this about 10 years ago? They released a demo build, it was cool but never materialized into anything. Teams that do things like this need to remain SILENT until they actually finish it. Announcing it now will just result in Nintendo shutting it down and it never taking off.
ZBomber commented on Nintendo Patent Hints at Pokémon Standalone C...:
I think someone at Nintendo took 3DS being a "200 dollar Pokemon machine" a little too seriously lol
ZBomber commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:
This is incredibly disappointing. I had been checking back every day hoping for a soundtrack or some kind of cool exclusive .I'm not big on digital games in the first place as I prefer to buy physical ones. I think the least they could do is allow a platinum member to chose one from the platinum section and one from the gold... this is the first time I got Platinum and I really worked toward it after seeing all the great rewards in the past, and I'm already at gold status for the year. Just incredibly disappointed...
ZBomber commented on Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 5:
Really hoping this gets released soon, its been over a month since the last installment, hasnt it?
ZBomber commented on New Super Mario Bros. (Wii) E3 Trailer:
This will be awesome!
ZBomber commented on New Wii Zelda Won't Be Radically Different, Sa...:
Personally, I'm glad they aren't changing things up too much. I don't like the whole concept of boats and trains and what not in Zelda games. I think THAT was changing it too much.
ZBomber commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:
I call bull.
ZBomber commented on First Impressions: Overturn:
Hope this turns up in America
ZBomber commented on ClayFighter:
I used to rent this game with my friend. Yeah, its not the greatest game, but it does hold some nostalgia value for me. This was the only 2D Fighter I played in that era too... never really got into them.
ZBomber commented on Review: Strong Bad Episode 1 - Homestar Ruiner...:
I just finished this game today, and I thought it was awesome. The TGS comics were hillarious. Some of the dialogue was really good too. Yes, the game can get a little boring in some spots, but I also got stumped once or twice during the game. Took me about 3 hours to beat too...
ZBomber commented on USA VC Update: Wonder Boy in Monster Land:
I'm pretty sure North America wont get SSB until April.... as I've said before, that will be its 10 year anniversary
ZBomber commented on Talking Point: Is the Virtual Console On The S...:
Well, I kinda gave up on VC awhile ago. I realized its cheaper to just buy the system and get the games I want. So, since then I got almost all of the NES, SNES, Genesis, and N64 games I wanted. VC is kinda pointless for me now, unless there is a rare game I would otherwise not be able to afford (Harvest Moon is one)
ZBomber commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - January 2009:
I'm guessing SSB is coming out in Japan for the 10 year anniversary (Jan 21 1999). Perhaps an April release for NA?
