The genius about smart device games is that you can access 'em so effortlossly. Quite a few of 'em get the kids hooked for free and their individually small fees make it seem like you still didn't pay anything for it before you consider to how much it may all add up.
Amiibo might be a way to make kids more interested in Nintendo's games again but will it make them and their parents want to spend at least 40 € on each big game?
We'll see soon.

And dang you Nintendo.
When you just sent me an e-mail with "50" in the title i thought you wanted to give me some stars for your stupid cult Club.
Instead you're telling me 'bout that 50 new things thing i already know and don't care about. :-|



eviLaTtenDant commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Woah! For the first time ever this article made me consider getting the normal edition over the XL. But i don't think i could resist the sheer beauty of the Metallic Blue LL model.
And as tempted as i am by the improvements of the new models i still might take my time and look at what exactly will be exclusive in the games. If there's nothing too amazing i could as well hold out for the announcement of the true next handheld generation.

Anyway, here's a few negatives i can see with the new models.

  • I don't think the 3D viewing angle will be much better when you're playing in the dark since it probably can't track your head or eye movement then.
  • While it might be a bit too much to ask i really would've loved to see the new C-Stick and buttons work with Circle Pad Pro games.
  • I don't think the communication with a PC has been improved so having to use a screwdriver each time you want to transfer photos, videos and music between your PC and 3DS is quite a bummer to me.
  • They probably didn't do anything about the volume level which is just too low on the 3DS.
  • While there wasn't much hope anyway it would've been so amazing if the new 3DS supported Bluetooth so i wouldn't need wires or adapters to use external speakers anymore.


eviLaTtenDant commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

I can only say that i refuse to buy the exact same system twice just because it won't let me play games from another region. In my case they're losing out on software sales instead since there's quite a few NA games i would've imported or downloaded if the Gamecube, Wii, 3DS and Wii U were region-free.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Review: Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter...:

Does anyone know if this game has multiple save files?
I might get it when there's a discount on it in Europe. While i liked the first game that was mostly due to the novelty of having download games on a portable. Looking back the first one was fun, but not 8€ fun.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I don't think there should be a radical change. I can see the new settings and characters fit into the existing, relatively traditional look and gameplay quite well.
Sure, it would've been nicer to get Kamek and regular Dry Bones instead of Cat Peach and Dry Bones Bowser but aside from that it all sounds glorious so far.
It just remains to be seen what kind of effect the DLC will have to playing with online friends that won't get it.
And i think aside from a Battle Mode DLC there shouldn't be more. They will have played their best cards with these two DLC packs right now.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

Even if you don't download the Mercedes DLC you'll still have to download the update to take part in online races and see others use these cars there, right?
Meaning these will also be used by AI controlled characters in single player mode when you want to play online?



eviLaTtenDant commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

I would love to see something like this in a global handheld app in the future.
It would be a huge nod towards game music if every track you've unlocked in a game went into a global player with some easy-to-use playlist creation, a random mode and the ability to delete these tracks if you don't like 'em.
For me that would definitely make it easier to justify paying the kinda high prices for games.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

One option is a subscription service that entitles gamers to choose a set number of games per month at a reasonable discount — $10 a month (renewed each month, not an ongoing or annual commitment) could perhaps allow picks of three GBA games, three SNES, four NES or a mixture across platforms

I'd like something along these lines. That price wouldn't make me mind that i can't play the GBA on the 3DS too.
That wouldn't be much of a problem if cross-buy was in full effect though.
Another thing that makes it hard to justify paying that much for GBA games is that they're missing the multiplayer features for two-player games. Wouldn't that be the perfect showcase for the GamePad when it comes to games people already love a lot?
