The DS was kind of a revolution with its touch-screen. I don't think they have something similar up their sleeves for smartphones.
It wouldn't be as easy as putting it on the market and watching it sell like hotcakes imo.

Personally i just want my smartphone to take good pictures and have the ability to call or text someone if i need to.
In Nintendo's case i don't think it would make sense to have exclusive smartphone-games for their phone, so i'm not interested.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Review: Picross e5 (3DS eShop):

I'll probably download it these days in the hope that i get farther than in e3 and e4. For some reason i've started to have problems in these where i could easily complete every other Picross game i got before.
Amen to that, @Rob_mc_1 !

I can only speak for myself but if i know a certain game is coming to Europe one day i'll probably always wait for that version. If there will be a boxed version in Europe too that is.
If there's only about 1% of a chance i'll import.
I can't see any harm done to anyone there.

And if they really unlock it'd be great if you could play American Wii games on your Wii U in Wii Mode.

you can now filter your activity feed to show only your friends' posts

I don't really get that.
Except for posts from friends the only other ones i really see there are these from people i'm following. And you'd think i chose to do so for some reason or another.
Anyway, it's just an option so i ain't complainin'. :-)

What really pees me off is how the different versions don't seem to have any real effect on each other though.
When i've already read the notifications that have nothing to do with friend requests in the browser, Wii U or 3DS version i don't want to see that stinkin' blue dot on any of these freaking systems anymore. :-|

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.
