It does indeed paint a pretty depressing picture. And then I realize this is the first nintendo console I've not owned in 3 generations (I don't have any current gen). Whilst the price is attractive, I have played lots of U games and none at the moment are irresistible. Also I much prefer physical games to the download stuff for 2ds. I dislike going into GAME and seeing those download cards. I think they are a very poor way to fill a couple of shelves.



dAvecaster commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

Just glancing through the comments, it seems to me that some people are claiming more games will make use of this feature when the big N work out what to do with the figures. That sentiment reminds me of a certain tablet style gamepad...



dAvecaster commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok: Rage Wars:

9 left. I hope they don't end with OoT. I think its been a fair list not too many good ones left. I'd have Mario Tennis, Jet Force, Oot, Tooie, Dk64 (despite the final battle) Ridge Racer 64 and Yoshi's Story. Actually, of the games I own, that's it. Even some of those are scraping the barrel a bit. If only if were the Nintendo 62.



dAvecaster commented on Nintendo 64x64: Perfect Dark:

A great game. Over hyped at the time of release? The amazing visuals came at a price as there were frame rate stutters. Despite that, there is a lot of fun to be had. I used to like GameRoom's review of it especially the comments from the fans!



dAvecaster commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mission: Impossible:

This is one game I've always been tempted to pick up but then I remember the reviews of the time and steer clear. I'm looking at a Youtube letsplay now and yeah, I think I'm right to save my money. It isn't the sort of thing which appeals to me. Reminds me a bit of Winback.



dAvecaster commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I thought the children did pretty well. They got that it was for gaming. I agree with them when they ask why would modern children want one? Technology has moved on, Nintendo recognize it and that's why they aren't made any more.

So pleased to see that children are still reading. I don't have a problem with them using consoles and games (my children love their ds') but sharing a book together is, in my experience, much more special and fun than cooperating on a computer game together.



dAvecaster commented on Veronica Mars Star Kristen Bell Reveals Her Fo...:

Swings and roundabouts. Tapered off with children being born. But is now starting to come back. Playing Plants vs Zombies with my daughter (9 years old) is cool. No substitute for playing real board games or imaginative games but, at times, is a nice alternative.



dAvecaster commented on Review: Pure Chess (3DS eShop):

Love the tag line for the review!
I might get this, I would like portable chess, it would round off my ds downloads nicely. Correspondence chess is fine by me. After all, there are plenty of free internet chess rooms for my real time chess needs.
