efac commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Editions Already I...:

Just got mine this morning (before leaving for work - darn it!!). Looks and feels lovely. Going from XL to this, but like it a lot - much more than I thought I would!

One question for those other members that have already received theirs - Did you get a registration/stars with yours? I couldn't find one in mine.



efac commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

Bought it! Why not!! Will be odd as currently have an XL.

Every intention of keeping it, but if I can't get used to the smaller screen (the performance may be a worthwhile trade off) guess I can always sell it.

For those mentioning log in doesn't work - I had the same issue. Effectively re registered under my usual email address/password and all worked fine.



efac commented on Nintendo Download: 13th February (Europe):


I am sad to say this, but I am quite glad I can use the money I put on my Wii U quite some time ago on my 3DS. It has been sat there waiting for VC releases that just haven't come (although I did buy Earthbound day 1).

At least I can use it now to buy something for the 3DS, and I think it is a shame I have to say that.



efac commented on Link's Awakening Turns 20 Years Old:

I remember buying this with some money I won from a Gamesmaster magazine contest (along with a mega drive 2 & mega cd!)..... Absolutely loved it! I don't care what Hyrule Historia says....this takes place directly after A Link to the Past!!



efac commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

As with many above me, the 'So many games' promotion has made this an easy digital download. I was very, very tempted to pay full price for a download, but Nintendo made it super easy to choose!!



efac commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (3DS):

Never got round to getting this on the Wii, so ordering online tonight based on this review. Better yet - this is my third game from the 'buy three, get one free' promotion - so yay to free animal crossing too!!



efac commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Super Famicom:

What a classic!

Wasn't my first console, but still the best!!

My original is still going strong (although Mario Kart is starting to play up), one console to rule them all!



efac commented on Kirby's Adventure:

I had fuzzy memories of loving this game on the NES many years ago, and was hopeful it would be just as much fun after (a very quick!) download on the VC.

At firist it feels quite basic, but a few levels in and you are absorbed. Slowly it getsharder, and (to me at least) had that 'just one more level, then I'll go to bed' appeal!

Don't let the 'cute' graphics fool you, this is a great game that still stands up after all these years.
