@eviLaTtenDant Right! The D-Pad's never disabled - the game will just keep track of if you use it during the stage or not, and if you get all three coins without it, you'll get the crown. I had to play one-handed to stop myself from using it sometimes, haha.

Also, in NA the DLC is 99¢ a pack!

zipmon commented on First Impressions: Getting Our Hands Dirty in ...:

@ModestFan93 Actually Bokumono/Harvest Moon is one of my favourite series ever! But I certainly don't pretend to know everything about every game in it :) For the animals, it was the dog joining the 'livestock' animals in having a bedtime that was new to me - I remember Rover always being awake to greet me even after long days in the mountains in earlier HMs. But I could be wrong! And some returning features are implemented in very different ways than previous games. Building bridges with the Instant Build is a Lego-style DIY process, rather than a drop-in-from-above deal as in A New Beginning, for example, and feels completely new in practice. In any case, as someone who's been thoroughly enjoying HM games for the past 18 years, I thought Lost Valley was a lot of fun, whether or not plenty of it felt familiar :)

@LUIGITORNADO Ha, I actually meant the QTE prompt that pops up at the bottom of the screen, not the controller itself - since the buttons are all round & white, it's harder to differentiate between them without actually glancing down at the prompt, whereas on the Xbox 360 version the buttons would've been different colours, and (perhaps) easier to read in peripheral vision. Though not knowing where the buttons are would certainly make it tougher! :)

@eleccross Definitely! Shoulder buttons are only used for swinging the camera around on the overworld (which isn't ever necessary) and cycling through menus, which can also be done on the touchscreen :)

@Benjerocks Good point! In my head 2.5D refers more to platformers where some of the action takes place into or away from the screen, like in Klonoa, where you have to throw enemies into the background to trigger switches - but Woolly World definitely has a bit of that 2.5D "feel" even if it doesn't incorporate the background in gameplay.

@Kirk I think it's shaping up to be special because I had a lot of fun playing it and am really looking forward to playing it more with my friends :)

@MegaWatts Thanks heaps mate!! =) From here it seems like Ninty's really putting their full weight behind it, and that can only mean good things!

@FalconPunch I asked a rep about local play and was told that we'd find out about the specifics of on/offline multiplayer options later. It seems like some people might've gotten more concrete answers, so we might be hearing something sooner than they intended! :)

@MegaWatts - Thanks Martin! It was pretty amazing! =D

@Scanning - Ah thanks! My Smash game isn't what it used to be =)

@rjejr - Yes! Sakurai said you'll scan the figures in one by one on the GamePad's NFC reader at the character select screen. It looked like what you do is select 'FP' (Figure Player) for an empty slot, and then scan in the figure, which will occupy that slot; then presumably you can select 'FP' for a second character slot and scan in the next figure.

@Spoony_Tech Thanks mate!! I've been super impressed with Atlus' 3DS output - I've racked up 100s of hours of playtime thanks to these games and loved it haha! And I'm absolutely looking forward to Persona Q! Super happy to see Persona finally making an appearance on a Nintendo console! =)

@1upsuper It definitely starts off easy, and it's nothing like SMT or Etrian Odyssey, but the challenge does ramp up as it goes. I was still really surprised not to see a difficulty select, though!

Ha, I love that the magazine's called Rising Star Magazine! Thanks for the review @dudey300! :)

Also for anybody contemplating both, Style Savvy is amazing. My most played 3DS game after ACNL & Fire Emblem!

zipmon commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

:) Thanks to everybody here for making Nintendo Life what it is - the staff for keeping things running smooth & always steering the ship towards exciting new adventures, my fellow writers for knocking it out of the park this year (and making me spend way too much on games after reading their awesome reviews), and to the readers & commenters for being the kindest, coolest group of gamers anywhere on the net - seriously. You guys are the best!!!

Happy Year of Luigi 2 everybody!!! Let's make it the best one yet! :D
