chiefeagle02 commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

The multiplayer mode described in the review reminds me of playing chess by mail, where each move would be made via post and the game could take weeks or months to finish. All the same, I might get this (for the 3DS) to be a better chess player.

I imagine the full roster's been planned out at least a year ago (fighters, assist trophies, Pokemon). With the game's due date being sometime later in 2014, I highly doubt there will be any new fighters incorporated at this point without seriously reconsidering how other characters are balanced out (something the director is a huge stickler of). Just let the developers finish the game and too bad if it doesn't hit every fan service expectation of which character you think should or shouldn't be in it (I bet 999 out of 1,000 you will buy the game anyway, regardless of a "perfect" roster lineup).



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

As hackable as the Wii and DS are, it's not outside the realm of possibility for third party servers to host online matches after Nintendo turns off theirs. The Sega Dreamcast (it's STILL thinking...) has had some success in hosting PSO sessions on private servers a decade AFTER the official servers went offline.

All of the games I've purchased as of late have been downloads, but they've all been from holiday sales, flash sales, and the Humble Bundle. Of all those games, only one or two were titles I had conscientiously planned to eventually get, even at full price.



chiefeagle02 commented on The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary E...:

I got this the first time around for my both DSi XL and my [then] 3DS and I LOVED it, despite being limited to the single-player mode. My girlfriend got a 3DS XL for Christmas and downloaded this yesterday, so I'm looking forward to giving the multiplayer a go.

Dragon Quest IX would be an awesome choice, especially if the Virtual Console allows for local multiplayer with [3]DS systems. The reason I played the game as long as I did after the main story was over was because of the multiplayer.



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December (North America):

I think my biggest issue with Rayman Origins for the 3DS is that it's a one player game. It's a lot more fun to play on a home console with friends scrambling for a platform. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great game, either solo or with friends, but making it single-player only takes away some of what made the home version awesome.



chiefeagle02 commented on The 3DS YouTube App Has Finally Gone Live:

Saw a few videos to try the app out (egoraptor, AgentXPQ, WiiViewr). The quality isn't as good as my iPod Touch (2nd Gen), but it's head and shoulders above my cell phone. I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm actually pretty satisfied with this app (maybe I haven't been spoiled by HD). Don't know how much use it will get, but the option for YouTube on the 3DS is good to have (like the Netflix app).



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th November (North America):

I actually would have expected "Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move" to be part of the DK-themed eShop discounts next week (and that was a stretch anyway as the Zelda and Mega Man weeks have featured nothing but Virtual Console titles). All the same, the Mario-themed offerings aren't bad.



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th November (Europe):

Kind of surprised at YouTube's absence (I usually take the EU updates as a guess at what the NA update might have). All the same, that's not to say it still won't come by the end of the month. Nintendo has occasionally dropped eShop software on odd days (ie: neither Monday nor Thursday) without warning. All in all, it'll get here when it's ready. Besides, I imagine most (if not all of you) here already have a mobile device capable of watching YouTube anyway (iPod Touch, in my case), so waiting a little longer without YouTube on ANOTHER device isn't going to hurt anyone.



chiefeagle02 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st November (North America):

Well, there's only one more Thursday in November (Happy Thanksgiving), so I guess we're getting YouTube next week (assuming nothing goes awry on Nintendo's end).

Otherwise, for this week, MAYBE the Mega Man games on sale. I was planning on getting Zelda as a physical release.
