Donjwolf commented on Video: This Harmless Exploit Will Help You Gra...:

I lost all my puzzle pieces when my 3DS got stolen from me on Christmas Eve, and I had every puzzle completed except for the three latest ones too. I doubt I'll be doing this exploit though. While I'd love to get back all the puzzles I lost, this sounds like a really time consuming method since you're only getting one piece at a time.



Donjwolf commented on Review: 3D Out Run (3DS eShop):

I've been waiting for this game for a while now. I've never played any of SEGA's arcade games, so these are a brand new experience for me! I have GF II and Afterburner II and both are mighty impressive!



Donjwolf commented on Masahiro Sakurai Praises the Achievements of S...:

I think every other PC digital storefront is better than Steam. People love Steam cause it was the first digital store and has achievements, trading cards, badges, a chat system, etc. I think all those stuff are useless, IMO, and I'd rather just play the games I buy than care about worthless badges, etc.

I prefer GoG, GG, GMG, even Origin, to Steam, since they don't have all that stuff and you don't need to load up a third-party program in order to play the games you buy from them.

Steam doesn't always have the best sales anymore too. Even Amazon has amazing deals now that beats Steam. Despite what people think about EA, I've had good customer service from them, and I can talk to them through livechat. I've heard nothing but horrible customer service from people who had to go through Steam support. Origin even gives you a complete refund for games within 24 hours after you buy them, and that goes for brand new games too. They have Game Time too, which lets you play the game unrestricted for 48 hours so you can judge whether you want to buy it or not, and once you buy it, you can continue from where you left off. I played Sims 4 using Game Time and I discovered it isn't as horrible as people say it is.

Too many people worship Steam, which baffles me. If I didn't already have a bunch of games on Steam, I'd ditch them a long time ago.



Donjwolf commented on Zen Pinball 2 Set to Hit a New High Score for ...:

I told you, I don't HAVE a Wii U so how can I check the Eshop? -_- The only page I CAN check is on Nintendo's website, and how would I know that it's 'outdated,' especially if it's on an -official- website.
It's good that Wii U has most tables then.

I think you're seriously underestimating the power of soccer though. In EU, soccer (football) is mega huge, whereas in NA it's not as popular. It probably sold tons in EU. There's no need to buy every single team either. I just bought the skin that had the wolf mascot since I love wolves. I don't even watch the sport, but it's by far the best table I've played in Zen Pinball 2.



Donjwolf commented on Zen Pinball 2 Set to Hit a New High Score for ...:

@rockodoodle Really? I do have ZP2 on the 3DS and I played just fine on it. The 3D effect actually made it easier to see everything on the top screen if it was cramped with stuff. I switched to the Vita for pinball though since the 3DS was barely getting any tables in a timely manner and because it was too weak to run The Pinball Arcade on it.



Donjwolf commented on Zen Pinball 2 Set to Hit a New High Score for ...:

@mystman12 While it's true most of Zen's pins are 'video gamey' with their rule sets, they have also made tables that are more down to earth. There's nothing in them that can't be done on a real table. Try pins like Street Fighter or Super League Football (my personal fave from Zen).



Donjwolf commented on Feature: The Heartwarming Tale of a Missing 3D...:

I lost my 3DS right in the lobby of my very own apartment and no good samaritan (sp?) ever returned it to me, yet this guy lost his thousands if of miles away and he gets it back. He's a very lucky guy, but it doesn't make me feel any better :(

All the work I did on Tomodachi Life was wasted since it was in the slot, and my poor 3DS case and my Digimon cell phone strap. I'll never see them again :(



Donjwolf commented on Review: Best of Mahjong (3DS eShop):

I've got a couple of questions for you, Alex. I am very picky about solitaire mahjong games and they have to have specific features before I'd even consider getting one.

My first question has already been answered as the only layout I usually ever play is the traditional Turtle. LOTS of new Mahjong games these days apparently don't have this layout (WHY?) which annoys me greatly. EVERY OLD game I've played has Turtle, which makes it more baffling why new games don't.

Secondly, I really hate how tiles that can be removed (whether they can be matched or not) are highlighted (at at least appear much brighter than tiles that are not) on the screen. It's one of the many features in newer games that I despise because it's essentially considered cheating (much like shuffle) in my eyes. Does this game do it too? If it's an OPTIONAL feature, then that's fine, just as long as it's not mandatory. Some of those screenshots you've posted doesn't bode well though, cause I see tiles that are clearly darkened in several screens.

Does the game tell you when you've ran out of matches? Normally this would be a standard in any game, but I've actually ran across one game that -didn't.- I never shuffle (it's cheating) so if a game tells me there's no more matches, then I can simply start a new game.

Thanks for answering my questions (if you do anyway).

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 Just 'cause you can play it 'for free' on a PC doesn't mean all the other 'non free' games aren't worth playing, or aren't as good, if not better. I can play Space Cadet on PC for free, but then I could also play The Pinball Arcade on PC (it's not free) that's 1000% better than Space Cadet. I can't bring my PC with me when I go out too so being able to play a similar game for free on another system is hugely irrelevant and not a good argument. Portability matters to me.



Donjwolf commented on Weirdness: According To McDonald's, Mario And ...:

@Prof_Clayton is actually right, you know. You can make similar looking characters, but as long as they don't look 100% like whatever character they're copying, and don't actually call said characters "Mario" or "Link," then it's not copyright infringement. Parodies happen all the time. It's not against the law. Those guys may resemble Mario and Bowser, but they're not actually Mario and Bowser. There's lots of differences between them and the actual characters.



Donjwolf commented on Ninterview: Learning Retro Secrets With A Form...:

@JJtheTexan I have a similar story! I never called the hotline either, but I sent them (Nintendo Power) a letter (I think it was through fax) how to get past a level in Donkey Kong (the GB game). I got a reply from them with complete instructions and it was personalized too! Sadly, I also lost the letter.

I also drew a pic of Rush (you know, the robo dog) with a mouse and sent it off to them. They said it was 'cool' and 'stuff' and that they were going to forward it to whoever decides what to put in future issues. Sadly, it never did get printed.

Okay, this isn't related to Nintendo at all, but I also faxed Disney Adventures a picture I drew and it actually was printed. I still have a copy of the mag somewhere in my closet...I think. When I emailed them, I've -always- received a card back with a personalized message.

UPDATE: Okay, I guess I was wrong. I don't seem to have the mag anymore.



Donjwolf commented on Natsume Thanks Fans for Strong Launch of Harve...:

@Malachite Well I already know Natsume doesn't own the series. Regardless, I like the direction they're taking with The Lost Valley. Lots of the features/ideas in that game is rather ingenious and makes me wonder why Marvelous never did any of the sort during their long history of making HM games. HM to me is getting rather stale (last game I bought was ToTT), and Natsume is giving the brand a fresh new coat of paint, even if they don't own it. I'm very interested in seeing what else they come up with for future 'HM' games, moreso than the actual series.


I'm glad to see there are other fans of this game too. A good game is a good game. It doesn't matter who makes it.



Donjwolf commented on Natsume Thanks Fans for Strong Launch of Harve...:

Wow at all the comments in this thread. So what if it isn't a 'true' HM game? That doesn't make the game itself -bad- or anything. Natsume is trying something new with the franchise, and after what they've done with The Lost Valley, I'm looking forward to see what else they can offer. The idea of terraforming your valley was an awesome and unique idea, being able to form your land however you chose. I made a huge wall, waterfalls and ponds.

The idea of using just one button to mine/chop/fish, etc, is something I've been waiting a long time for. I dunno why Marvelous never bothered to do this after so many years.

It seems that most of you are basing your opinions from what -other- people have said, which is sad. If -they- didn't like it, it doesn't mean that -you- won't like it either. I can't believe people follow Metacritic like some sort of god. The only opinion I listen to is my own.

I'd still be playing it now if my 3DS hadn't gotten stolen. TLV is a step in the right direction, IMO. The -real- HM series is getting kinda stale.



Donjwolf commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

If my 3DS hadn't been stolen, and it was coming to NA, I'd love to get that NES Bowser theme (I love Bowser), although it also depends on what the theme actually looks like first. The music would probably be Bowser's castle.



Donjwolf commented on Best of Mahjong:

There's not much market for the game out of Asian countries though, compared to other games like checkers and chess. It's just not popular/well known enough to be released in NA. I thought you would've realized that by now.

There ARE Mahjong games on NA PSN though and you can play it on Vita, PSP and PS3, but they're all imports so they're in Japanese. That's one option if you must play Mahjong. I doubt one is ever going to come to Nintendo systems. There's no market for them here.



Donjwolf commented on Miyamoto Talks Up Star Fox Wii U's "Fun And Un...:

I'd much rather see a 3D Classics: Star Fox. It's still the best game IMO. I'd SOOOOOO love to play it on the 3DS!!
Also, I don't like all the changes to Fox's design. I loved how he looked on SNES (the puppets) and in that NP comic, but everything after that looks pretty bad.

You're wrong. I liked Command too.



Donjwolf commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

I don't dislike the movie because it's popular. I dislike it because of various other reasons, and it is nowhere near my 'top 10 Disney movie' list. I used to worship Disney back in the day, but they're basically dead to me now. Whatever magic they had disappeared IMO.

I'm also not the type of person that tends to dislike anything even remotely popular. I'm not that kind of sheep, following the crowd. It'd be for other reasons.



Donjwolf commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

@MoonKnight7 Don't worry. I didn't like the movie either, and so did 2 of my friends. It wasn't even, IMO, the best movie of 2013. Ernest et Celestine should have won the Oscars, but the bias people have against foreign movies/subs (unless it's from Miyasaki (sp?)) is probably why it lost. You should watch it if you haven't already. I also don't like the Frozen songs at all. People say it's just like the older songs, but IMO the older songs are still a lot better.

Frozen had too many plot holes and 'things that don't make sense.'



Donjwolf commented on Review: Game & Watch Gallery 3 (3DS eShop / Ga...:

If it ever comes to NA, I may get it. All I really want in that list is classic Mario Bros., as it's my favourite G&W game that I've played.

I doubt the GBA game (Gallery 4) will ever come to 3DS VC, and Nintendo never made a DSIware version of it (like they did with several others), so I guess I'll have to stick with G&W Gallery 3 for Mario Bros. fun.
