Why is star fox 64 3D still full price? I figured it'd be normally $30 by now...
Getting tropical freeze for sure!
dings commented on Nintendo Reveals Details on the Third Week of ...:
Getting Pokemon rumble u! I've always wanted it but $18 is too high IMO.
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):
I'll be getting some discounted Capcom goodness! Hopefully the prices will come out soon
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (North America):
$15 for a buggy game? Nice
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (North America):
It's not smb3 but I'm excited to get the lost levels on Wii u!
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 6th March (North America):
I was hoping for some of those Luigi sales Europe got!
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd January (North America):
Another week of disappointment. I want to spend my money on games, Nintendo, why won't you let me? Now it's going elsewhere!
dings commented on Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter Releases D...:
Maybe they'll pull a Sony and give us a free game or credit after the downtime
dings commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:
I think it's strange that people are so put off by the Wii U. It's just a giant DS. They've been making DS games that take advantage of the two screens for almost 10 years now, why is it suddenly throwing them off because the screens are bigger?
dings commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
Pokemon Y is where all my gaming time will be spent this weekend as well as the next couple of weekends I'm sure.
dings commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd October (North America):
These discounts are going to kill me, Bit.Trip.Runner 2, Fiery Inferno, FF/SF combo discounts and MH3U back at half off today only... whelp, see ya, money!
Just a heads up, I bought Final Fight 3 for 1.50 using the upgrade discount and it unlocked the discount for Street Fighter! More gaming for your buck!
dings commented on Atlus Knocks 10 Bucks Off Code of Princess, So...:
I think I may finally have to try out Code of Princess
dings commented on Satoru Iwata Cites Poor Basic Wii U Sales To R...:
I'm a pretty big Nintendo fan and I finally bought a Wii U earlier this week. I've never been a doomsayer or calling it the "next virtual boy" (it's already sold 4.5 times more systems). I was just waiting for Nintendo's classic first year drought to pass. With Pikmin 3 finally here and more around the corner it finally seemed like the right time to get one, and I'm glad I did!
dings commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for July:
I bought DK when it first came to the shop, got SPU as a reward when it was offered last but have not gotten Star Fox 64 yet and was seriously considering doing so! Now I can with out paying!
dings commented on Peter Molyneux: If I were Nintendo, I'd Put Ma...:
Touch screen only games are the worst. Has anyone tried to play Street Fighter, Sonic or any other traditionally controlled game on the iPhone/Android/whatever? It adds a whole new level of difficulty but for all the wrong reasons. I couldn't even play Pac-Man on the iPhone it just doesn't work.
dings commented on Pikmin 2 Finally Reaches North American Wiis Soon:
YES!!!! Finally found a copy of NPC Pikmin last year during the summer and have been dying to play 2 but I can't find any (reasonably priced) copies for GC, this will be very welcomed by me
dings commented on Club Nintendo Now Lets You Buy Download Games ...:
Site... moving... so... slow...

I wish they'd made kung fu instead!
dings commented on These Handmade 3DS Cases are Awesome:
I wish there were a legend of zelda themed one!
dings commented on Capcom Blames the Fans for Mega Man Legends 3 ...:
What's wrong with Capcom lately? First the one time save in RE and now this...
dings commented on These Are Your Club Nintendo Elite Rewards:
For those complaining: Nintendo is the only gaming company giving anything away at all that I know of (could be wrong) and honestly, flipping out over something someone gives you makes you look like a child.
Don't forget there's also all the other rewards you still get to spend your coins on.
dings commented on High Voltage Responds Badly to Scathing Condui...:
It's hard to take HVS seriously after I learned their first batch of games were exclusives to the Atari Jaguar.
dings commented on Nintendo Uncertain Whether 3DS Demos will be W...:
This guy sure is good at making controversial statements that go against the wishes of most the fan base.
dings commented on Nintendo Likely to Retain Price Control in 3DS...:
As much as I love Nintendo it takes them way too long to catch onto current trends. They've got making great games down perfectly but every time I see them screw something up like pricing points, flimsy online experiences ect it just reminds me of their choice to stay offline for the GCN and cartridges for the N64.
dings commented on Bomberman Hero:
I wonder if it's really difficult for companies to port 64 games or they just haven't felt like it?
dings commented on Sega Names First Game Gear Games for 3DS Virtu...:
Sonic Triple Trouble! I have fond memories of that game.
dings commented on New York's Pokemon Launch Takes Over Rockefell...:
Not a huge Pokemon fan but I might pop by to check out the madness!
dings commented on Review: Rage of the Gladiator (WiiWare):
Glad they released a demo! After World of Goo, this may be the best Wii-Ware game!
dings commented on Review: Robox (WiiWare):
Why are game programmers still making 2D platforming games with the same annoying problems that plagued them 20 years ago? Do they think it makes it feel more retro if they program something that doesn't control or move like you'd expect a game in 2010 to play?This felt like one of those NES games that you rent based on cool box art only to realize once you've stuck it in that you're in for a frustrating weekend. You can only shoot in front of your face while enemies are anywhere but, random objects that don't stand out from the background hurt you among other things.I spent enough time with games like this when I was younger that I really don't feel like be subjected to it anymore.
dings commented on Mario Sports Mix Giveaway!:
dings commented on Review: Zombie Panic in Wonderland (WiiWare):
I downloaded this demo and didn't much care for it!
The way enemies came at you and how you could only move back and forth it was like Space Invaders 3D with zombies and much lower difficulty!
dings commented on 3DS Battery Life Revealed:
That's somewhat discouraging, as I usually play my DS on the train and the train round trip is about 3 hours. I might have to pass on this one until a later revision is out or a more accurate report of it's battery life is in.
dings commented on Review: GoldenEye 007 (DS):
This is the first I've even heard of this coming to the DS! Guess I missed that piece of news
dings commented on Review: Fester's Quest (NES):
The best thing about being a kid is you can play all these awful games and not even realize it, then grow to love them. I remember renting all sorts of awful NES games and it never even occurred to me that they were crap. I would just sit there and play and play and never get anywhere due to the broken controls or whatever other flaw.
There was a lot of shovelware for the NES much like the Wii.
dings commented on Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition...:
I already have all the games from the VC and I didn't really care how SMAS played, but I'll still buy it. Damn you Nintendo!!!
dings commented on Features: Things We Miss About the 8-Bit Era:
One thing that really annoys me about new games is the stories! I know some people really like them but I hate if I can't skip through the videos. I don't care why you have to do things in video games as much as how to do them. I think that's why I've stuck with Nintendo as their games seem to be pretty thin on long, overblown, poorly acted cinematic scenes.
dings commented on This Christmas is Critical for Wii, Admits Iwata:
I heard you can send it in even without smashing it! Just call them, Nintendo has great customer service.
dings commented on Capcom Reveals Virtual Console Arcade Support ...:
I can't wait to lose life after life in the original ghosts n goblins!
dings commented on Aya and the Cubes of Light Gets Speed Boost:
A small delay is always worth it if it means a better game. Glad to see developers doing their homework.
dings commented on Review: Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube):
I wish they'd make a whole game like the FLUDD-less levels
dings commented on Nintendo Power Claims Sonic 4: Episode 1 Will ...:
If it's as long as they claim it is, and if reviews are good i'll get it.
dings commented on Super Mario Bros. was Gaming's Big Bang, says ...:
Wasn't just Atari, also the Colecovision and Intellivision, along with any stand alone game systems like pong.
When the crash happened retailers didn't want to stock video games, and consumers thought the fad was over. When Nintendo brought the NES to America, they added in the ROB and light gun and called it an "entertainment system". They even marketed it as a kind of toy because video games had left such a bad taste in retailers mouths.
Once people played SMB and Duck Hunt they were hooked! The NES took off in a surge of popularity and video games were back!
dings commented on Nintendo Shows Who's Boss of the August Sales ...:
Is there not a new Madden on the Wii or is it just not as popular?
dings commented on Reggie Confirms 3DS is Coming Next Year:
Hopefully this will give them and game developers time to have a decent launch library. I remember it was about a year into the DS's life until it had 3-5 good games to choose from!
dings commented on Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1:
The Japanese name for Super Mario World is Super Mario Bros. 4!
dings commented on Only 8.8% of Japanese Consumers Want to Buy a 3DS:
Too many variations of the DS! It feels like the Genesis all over again with the Genesis 1,2,3 CD, 32X, CDX and the Nomad. Compare that to the DS, DSlite, DSi, DSi XL and now the 3DS.
I'm a pretty big Nintendo fan but I'm pretty put off by all that.
