chiefeagle02 commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

The YouTube Channel "Extra Credits" did a few videos on the concept of Gamification, in that you're making the pursuit of health and education like one big video game (which basically sounds like what Nintendo is aiming for with the QOL platform). Here is one video which I would recommend: Overall, I am interested in the QOL platform. Brain Age was my first DS game and I still do Wii Fit Plus. I'm curious to see what else Nintendo will do with this concept of gamification.



chiefeagle02 commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

@unrandomsam Good call. Maybe Wario's an unlockable? I remember the Smash Bros. Dojo website was still revealing characters for Brawl even after it was released (came out March 9th, 2008. Last character reveal was March 31st).

Now if we're banking on game assets as clues for the roster, here is my hope for the Ice Climbers:




chiefeagle02 commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

I'm probably in the minority here but (as much as I'd love the Ice Climbers to return) I'd be fine if we were looking at the final additions to the roster. This new Smash Bros looks to have a TON of content, comparable to Brawl, so I wouldn't complain if Sakurai had no one else left. Not saying I'm not open to hidden characters or more surprise reveals though... ;)

I have to wonder: Which characters revealed for Smash Bros 4 are default characters? How many of them are unlockables (like how Solid Snake and Sonic were in Brawl, despite the former being revealed on day one)?



chiefeagle02 commented on Sega Still Considering Its Options For The Wii...:

@Darknyht I can relate. I picked up the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for PS3 because I remember loving Sega Smash Pack for the Dreamcast (and I had Sega Geneis Collection for the PS2). I felt I only played Sonic's largely to get the trophies (easiest platinum trophy ever).



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I think this is the first year I'm bummed for not hitting Platinum (last time I got it was when they gave out Doc Louis Punch-Out. Got Gold every year since then) because Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D has been on my wishlist for a while. Oh well, I'm getting either Wario Land 2 or Donkey Kong 3 as I have the other prizes in one form or another.

I don't know how I feel about digital-only prizes. Usually I would send my physical prize to my nephew as an early birthday present (a Nintendo calendar or something), so it feels strange getting something this year (my nephew has all but abandoned his 3DS for his Android tablet with Minecraft, otherwise I'd send him a code for Super Mario Land 2).



chiefeagle02 commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

In a parent's mind, a fifty dollar tablet from Wal-Mart on Black Friday seems more attractive than a one-hundred dollar 2DS system. My nieces and nephew each got one last Christmas (ages 2, 4, and 10 respectively), mainly as an educational device for the girls and a gaming (ie: Minecraft) device for the boy. Whenever I visited though, one of my nieces ogled over my 3DS XL, loving the drawing feature in the 3DS camera app (so we'll see).



chiefeagle02 commented on Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in...:

MAYBE Rayman Origins on 3DS. Thing is I've already played it to death on the Wii and I also have a digital copy on the PS3 that I've barely touched (got it for $10 in a sale). Also, the 3DS version forgoes multiplayer, something that made the console versions great. Origins is a great game, but I'm not sure if I'll get it.



chiefeagle02 commented on Review: Brain Age: Concentration Training (3DS):

My girlfriend bought this for me a few months ago. I miss the "Book Mode" the older games had (turning the DS on its side)...and the Sudoku, but it's still a great overall update to the formula. Devilish Training is frustratingly hard at times, but breaking through that mental plateau is an amazing feeling.



chiefeagle02 commented on Review: Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: How Ol...:

I fall in that category where Brain Age was the reason I bought a DS Lite back in the day (that, and the portable system of choice in college was the DS). It did stagnate about a month or so after unlocking everything (at which point, I moved on to other Touch Generations titles), but it was still a great title. Earning "Rocket Speed" on Calculations x20 gives one an immense feeling of self-satisfaction.



chiefeagle02 commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for May, Physica...:

Games are getting more expensive. Mario Party 2, an N64 game, costed 150 coins when it was made available as a prize (February 2012. I know, I grabbed it). Fast forward to today, two years and some change later, Mario Kart 64 costs 250. I know there's the argument that they've added Wii U support for some games (NES, SNES), supporting an "added value" argument, but that doesn't cover N64 games, ergo not justifying an increase in price.

I know Nintendo is a business, ergo they are at liberty to charge what they feel is a reasonable price (supply and demand, et cetera), but I couldn't help but notice this upward trend...

For those interested, here's a more comprehensive (albeit incomplete) history of the program, pricing included:
