eduardopaulo commented on Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Fr...:

Just received an answer from Nintendo. While it may not seem like much, last time I sent them a message I said that people would love to see the Capcom Zelda games and SMB3 on the 3DS VC, and we already got two of the three (with SMB3 coming up later this year), so who knows, they may be listening after all. Here it is:

Hello Eduardo,

I'm glad you contacted us about this. I can certainly understand your interest in seeing more popular games released for the Virtual Console services on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as well your wanting to see games from additional systems make an appearance. I am not able to guarantee anything specific, but I will make sure your comments are documented so that the appropriate departments know what our fans are asking about. The URL you linked to will also be included in your feedback record.

Nintendo Consumer Service does not receive advance notice of exactly what Virtual Console titles will be released in the future (except for those publicly announced), so I don't know if the games you're looking forward to are coming.

However, we release our latest Virtual Console titles every Thursday, so please keep an eye on our website (http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew) for the latest news.

Sincerely,

Ben Weekly
Nintendo of America, Inc.

I have just sent an email to NOA. I hope they answer me. Last time I wrote one, they did. I requested the Capcom Zeldas for GBC and SMB3 for the 3DS VC, and we got it/are getting it! Here's the full text:

Hey Nintendo!

Like millions of others, I am a huge fan of your products. I don't own a Wii U, but I do own a Game Boy Advance, a 3DS XL, and a 2DS, and I have owned other portable systems such as the original Game Boy, the Game Boy Color and the DS Lite.

One thing us consumers love is being able to purchase and play old favorites from the eShop, and that's what brings me here. I have emailed you guys before with questions regarding the same issue. Now I have a few more people to back me up.

As I'm sure you know, there is this website called Nintendo Life. Recently one of the staff wrote a piece on the issue of the lack of good titles on the Virtual Console - both for the Wii U and the 3DS. The subject had already been tackled by users on comments in other posts, but this one brought the house down. The unsatisfied mob gathered and unleashed their rage - myself included.

You see, it's time you gave us what we want, Nintendo. Now don't get me wrong, we love you, and that's why I'm here. We want to play the old classics! We want GBA and SNES games on the 3DS! We want the first and second generations of Pokémon on the 3DS! No more crap NES and Game Boy titles no one's ever heard about and didn't give a damn when they were first released! Also, N64 and GameCube games on the Wii U eShop! Come on, Nintendo, you can do better than Pinball or Star Soldier.

I'm only writing this because I love Nintendo unconditionally - so much so I'm unsatisfied with the eShop and still bought a 2DS when I ALREADY own a 3DS XL! - and want to see it doing better. Also, the last time I wrote I requested the Capcom Zeldas for GBC and SMB3 for the 3DS eShop, and ta-da! They're here (or almost here, in the case of SMB3)! Which means you listen to us... I guess. I hope.

Here's the link to the article I mentioned. Please read it and pay close attention to the commments. That's what the people want, guys. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/10/soapbox_the_wii_u_virtual_console_needs_to_freshen_up

On a side note, good job on making awesome games. Keep 'em coming. THE OLD ONES TOO.

Best,

Eduardo P. Costa

Has someone sent this page to Nintendo? They need to read this. It's basically a compilation of nearly identical complaints by Nintendo lovers, faithful consumers who have spent loads of money on their products. They've got to listen - that's what the people want.

eduardopaulo commented on Pokémon X & Y Torchic Distribution Announced:

To be fair, I think prior to today's post there was no indication whatsoever as to where exactly Torchic could be obtained - information was pretty vague, it could be US only, or Gamestop only - and now NL has confirmed it's a wi-fi event and anyone can get the Torchic just by connecting the 3DS to the internet.

eduardopaulo commented on Pokémon X & Y Torchic Distribution Announced:

@suburban_sensei @Hunter-D

It took me a long time to decide which was my favorite Kalos starter, but when the final forms leaked it was no longer an issue. It's the first time my favorite starter is grass type (my choices in previous generations have been Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Torchic, Piplup, and Tepig). I always look for balance between types and stuff like that, but I will NOT train a Pokémon if I think its looks are lame.

eduardopaulo commented on Nintendo Direct: Wii U And 3DS Broadcast Comin...:

I don't think this Nintendo Direct will see any news regarding Pokémon X and Y. My guess is they have something else for this week or the next, specifically in the form of a short Pokémon Direct with very interesting content to get even more people aboard the hype train. Tomorrow, probably Zelda news for the 3DS, something about the 2DS, and the Mario and DK titles for the Wii U.

@GamerZack7 From your mouth to Nintendo's ears, man.

eduardopaulo commented on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Swings Into a R...:

@Five-seveN I know it looks very good in the video and it's very promising, and the fact that they're rebuilding the entire thing from the ground up for the 3DS probably means that it's going to be a fantastic game (maybe THE killer app), but I'm trying to be realistic - and careful, because 3DS retail games in Brazil have a standard price of 75 dollars and I don't want to be disappointed. I decided to buy Rayman 3D (cost me the equivalent of 50 dollars in Brazilian currency) in spite of all the reviews and that taught me to be even more picky from now on.

I'm very excited about this (never owned a Wii, so never got to experience its great platformers), but I'll wait and read some reviews before I buy it. The fact that it's a great game on the big screen doesn't mean it'll be a great game on the 3DS (as is the case with "Rayman Origins").

eduardopaulo commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo DS Lite:

I didn't know that the DS Lite's hinge broke so often. I had mine for three years and took it everywhere, never owned a case, and it never broke. My only complaint about it is that it was very hard to keep clean. The small crevices were always dirty.

eduardopaulo commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo DS Lite:

I've never owned a proper home console by any company, only Nintendo handhelds. I got tired of my GBA in 2005 because good games were expensive, and the DS was VERY expensive here in Brazil at the time, so I thought my gaming life was done for good. Then in 2009 I talked to a friend and he told me about the DS Lite, which was very accessible for gamers with little money, and I got a white one (identical to the one in the pics above) right away. It was my first true experience with great titles, and it helped me define my taste in games. My favorite one of the bunch, as you can tell from my avatar, is Henry Hatsworth; I probably beat it ten times in Gentleman Mode. I retired my DS in late 2012 after deciding that the 3DS XL and its games were a good investment.

eduardopaulo commented on The Legend of Zelda Oracle Titles Coming to Ja...:

I'm glad Aonuma said that it'll take a while before the Oracle games are released outside Japan, because at least it means that we'll be able to get it sooner or later. My main beef with the 3DS eShop now, outside of the fact that it could be much better, is that SMB3 was released in Japan on January the 1st and so far they haven't mentioned if it'll be released in NA or EU. I also don't understand why they released Castlevania in EU and Dig Dug in NA instead of releasing both in both places and leaving it to the gamer to decide which one/ones to buy.

As for GBA games, I've sent an e-mail to NOA earlier this year about it and they said they have no plans of releasing them on the 3DS eShop whatsoever. Maybe it's different with Nintendo of Europe, but I didn't bother contacting them as my 3DS is American.
