ZenTurtle commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:

I say let these people exercise their consumer right to play games region-free. If you own a game, you have every right to play it on your own console. This is what this will predominantly be used for... These doomsday predictions are rather pathetic.



ZenTurtle commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

DSi (and the 3DS) do not region lock DS games, but games which were made especially to work with DSi exclusive features were locked. So, for example, the DS remake of Fire Emblem Monsho no Nazo was able to play on any region DS, but would only use the DSi online features on Japanese DSi consoles... There weren't many DSi exclusives, which is probably why you might not have known about this.

@Sforzando @123akis
I heard that the issue with flipnote studio was that there was a huge server overload even in Japan, so they wouldn't ("can't") release it worldwide. Of course, this is a pretty poor excuse, considering that they solved it for Pokémon bank and the eshop last year, within a few weeks, and it's been six whole months!!! I've even seen an early version in action, so the game is fully functioning. They should at least release the DSi version for 3DS until they solve these 'issues'. It would be better than nothing, after all.

Ok, basically the games are crap, but believe me, you would not buy most of the plastic tat, even if it was available to you in the USA. However, I'm sure you'll agree that NOA does not hate you, as some people on the comments here are suggesting. What's the saying? "The grass is always greener on the other side."



ZenTurtle commented on Nintendo of Europe Distributes Free Halloween ...:

There has not been a game there for years, and this single game was utter rubbish. In vast contrast, your games get updated every month, and at least you have them. In addition to this since, I don't know, 1985, games have always released in the USA first, or not at all in Europe. I was merely pointing out that the USA has been, is, and always will be the region in which Nintendo focuses most on.

So, the rubbish spin-offs. Where's Pokemon:
Green for Japan,
Blue for Japan,

Stadium 2,

And those are just the original GB titles!
What about
All the others?



ZenTurtle commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Amazon Listing Say...:

Amazon UK sell systems. The thing is, I suspect they just haven't sold enough consoles in the US (wii u), and people just end up buying them from shops as they are about the same price as online. And so they haven't bothered to order another lot of shipping containers from Nintendo. Also, they're tax avoiders. They are evil, and the corpse-lord Jeff Bezos is their cruel cult master. Who knows the machinations of a despot's mind?



ZenTurtle commented on It'll be Possible to Catch All 719 Pokémon Us...:

Not everyone lives near a place where they are distributed, and surely you agree that putting the data in game, but making them perpetually inaccessible is a bit unfair, especially with the older games? Also, it's a bit embarrassing to go to a game store and asking for a Pokemon. Sometimes the shop staff and other customers laugh at you, because this is a game targeted primarily at kids... :(



ZenTurtle commented on Nintendo UK Executive Says Wii U Has Had "Quit...:

We need a cheaper wii u, but removing the ability to play wii games?! It would be a public relations nightmare, not to mention that it wouldn't actually reduce any costs, as it really is just a disc drive and a posh emulator. The gamepad is poorly implemented, but then many games wouldn't work, so it would not really be of benefit. What they need to do is to stop selling all the 'accessories' with it. This means no more gamepad stands, etc etc, just console, gamepad, wires, game (cheap disc or code). No frills attached. They need to sell it simply- "You buy console. You plug it in. You have fun." Then they need to sell it at that price for a year or two, then put the price down again. And again. They also need the included standard game to be a recognisable title, that repetitive launch Mario title, a la Mario world. And they need it at the forefront of shops. And in prime time telly. And they need it cheaper- £150 to £200 tops. Then it would sell. Reducing price worked for 3ds, after all!

Why do the comments always descend into a ridiculous pedantic argument about altruistic legal values? I'm not going to name any names, but you should all just take a step back and stop moaning about a project that isn't even finished!
