FiveDigitLP commented on NOA Announces Coming Restock of Old amiibo:

I actually managed to snag a Captain Falcon, Greninja, and Shulk the other day (Oct 6th) at TRU. They also had Fox and still had a few Zero Suit Samus and Olimar amiibo from the last wave. Looks like things are finally improving!



FiveDigitLP commented on Ubisoft Launches Its eShop Summer Sale in Nort...:


Dude, I strongly recommend getting Rayman Legends for Wii U over any other platform. There are so many fun elements to using the gamepad on this game. My wife prefers playing as the person with the gamepad over actually doing the platforming elements. However, it's not just a "girlfriend mode," as I have a couple gamer friends that prefer to use that mode over the regular platforming stuff. It's really quite fun and, though I haven't tried it, I can't see how it would be the same on any other system.



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (North America):

If I were to get one of the Phoenix Wright games above that are on sale, which would anyone recommend? Is it worthwhile to start from the beginning with the trilogy or should I try something newer? I've never played anything in the series...

"or the shenanigans of a handful of limited edition Majora's Mask 3D disappearing within minutes in North America"
Wait, what?
goes and checks Amazon and Best Buy
Nooooo!! I had no idea they had even put it up for preorder yet! I had just been thinking to myself how I wasn't going to hesitate with this like I did with the amiibo and instead order it as soon as it was available.



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (North America):

I'm not sure why, but I'm a real sucker for Breakout clones (if they're good). I might have to pick up Siesta Fiesta...

Which reminds me, has anyone else on here ever played Jardinains? It's an obscure Breakout clone for the PC where you have gnomes that randomly pop out of the blocks you're trying to break. They try to throw potted plants at your board while you try to hit the block that they're on. If you break the one they're on, then they'll fall and you can bounce them until they explode (it's not gory, just goofy) and they'll give you a power-up. It's pretty absurd. I played it a lot growing up.



FiveDigitLP commented on 3DS System Update 9.0.0-20 Is Now Live with Ho...:

Not sure why everyone is excited about the installed themes. They're pretty ugly. I like the default look of the home screen, but the other colors just don't seem to work. I don't think they did a good enough job trying to make the colors blend well.

Also, I think part of my problem is that I have my home screen zoomed out 3x, so the icons just look weird at that level when it comes to the colored themes. I thought I'd like the black, but the contrast between the letters on the folders and the color of the theme is just too much.



FiveDigitLP commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

Folders are nice (and will definitely be used), but I think the best new feature here is the added ability to hide certain apps from the Quick Start menu. There's a lot of them that I think are pointless, but I never understood why the Settings would show up on there since there is a Settings button at the bottom of the Quick Start menu.

Now if only they can fix the bug that forces me to restart my console. Anyone else having that issue? Basically, I have to force my Wii U to restart pretty much every other time I boot it up. This started when they released the Quick Start menu.



FiveDigitLP commented on Video: Take a Closer Look At Super-Secret Base...:

Wow. Unless I just didn't understand how they worked, I always thought the secret bases in the originals were kind of lame as you couldn't do much with them, but this looks pretty sweet. It's almost like building your own personal Pokemon Gym!



FiveDigitLP commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

@argol228 Cause no one knows who Rayman is and yet everyone knows who Shulk is...? I think not. I'd love to see Shulk, but he's from one obscure game that not that many people bought, while Rayman has been in multiple games from multiple generations of consoles. I'm just trying to think of what would be a logical character based on them having a countdown for it.

Just about all of the "big" first party characters are already taken, so it almost has to be a 3rd party one.



FiveDigitLP commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

Duuuude...How had I not even thought of him yet? That would be the perfect addition and would definitely warrant his own video with a countdown! I've been sitting here racking my brain trying to figure out who would be appropriate for this kind of thing...

All I know is I hope it's not an existing character. As much as I want to know for sure Ness and Captain Falcon are going to be in the game, it would be a huge letdown if this video is just about either of them. Although...I will say that some people's suggestions of revealing Falcon along with a new F-Zero game would be an interesting spin...



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo TVii Update Adds New Features and Imp...:

Wow. I don't think I saw one single positive comment on here about the software.

For me, when it was first announced, the exciting thing about TVii was the ability to search for a movie or TV show and see whether or not it was available on the various streaming services I use.

Unfortunately, it never worked all that efficiently so I stopped using it. Now, with the update, I was hoping for an improvement on speed, but as far as I can tell the feature seems to have been removed entirely.



FiveDigitLP commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

That's pretty much exactly how I feel. Everyone asks if I'm getting a PS4 or Xbox One or why I don't already have one, and I just tell them I have a Wii U and the other consoles really don't have a lot to offer me at this point. I'll probably own one or both eventually, but not anytime in the near future.



FiveDigitLP commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

@Pod I get what you're saying, but I'd say that for me listening to the soundtrack actually encourages me to play the game again. I don't think to myself, "I remember the music being good in _______ game. I should go play it again." I don't usually consider just how good the music was until I'm listening to the soundtrack. When I listen to a soundtrack, those sounds are strongly linked with the actions that I was doing at the time when I heard that music--especially when it comes to tracks that are used for a boss and you only hear in certain circumstances.



FiveDigitLP commented on Stick It To The Man on Wii U "Feels Funnier" T...:

I've never heard of this, but it looks really good. Definitely has an old school point-and-click adventure feel to it. It kind of reminds me of Psychonauts.

Also, I really like the way it sounds like the GamePad will be utilized. I agree with you as well, @Einherjar. I really wish more people (both gamers and developers) would get this through their heads.



FiveDigitLP commented on Developer Interview: PhobosLab on XType Plus, ...:

@PhobosLab Thanks for the confirmation. I really thought this interview was cool. I've always thought the idea of developing video games was beyond my reach, but with this framework, it certainly seems a lot more tangible for me as I already know some web languages. It's really cool to see Nintendo trail-blazing in this area.



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo Confirms "Super Indie Connection Sale...:

Yeah, I've noticed my light change to orange every now and then as well. Every now and then I'll notice an update to one of my games has been installed, so I guess that's what it is.

As for credit card numbers, I just use Paypal. Not sure if Sony uses them, but MS definitely does on Xbox Live and that's where I've used this type of service the most. And though it may not be useful for all consumers, when it comes to me, the benefit to the platform holder is increased sales. When I hear about a sale or a demo I want to try out, I go to the Xbox Live site and download it. Otherwise, I'm likely to forget when I get home and miss the deal.



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo Confirms "Super Indie Connection Sale...:

@rjejr That's a very good point and I was thinking the same thing. Now is definitely a good time to pick up Spin the Bottle before it goes up in price. You know, I really wish Nintendo would get on the ball about having the eShop accessible from a browser. I'd really like to purchase the game and have it ready to go when I get home. (With the background download system, it could theoretically download while I'm away from home.)



FiveDigitLP commented on Nintendo to Step Up Character IP Licensing, In...:

@Raptor78 Lego, yes. Mega Bloks, no way no how. Their stuff is a joke and is not of the same quality as Lego nor does it have the same uniformity.

At any rate, though, I definitely support the idea of more character licensing. For years I've wanted easily accessible figures of Nintendo characters, but only recently have I been able to get Mario and a few Zelda figurines. (And I can't afford to buy the expensive figmas.)



FiveDigitLP commented on Video: A New Bravely Default Trailer Shows You...:

Wow. I think you blew my comment out of proportion a bit. I was under the impression the demo was going to have a small story so i could get a feel for the writing and character development of the game. Instead it's more of a tech demo for the battle system. It's not a bad thing for free content, mind you, just not what I was expecting.



FiveDigitLP commented on Video: A New Bravely Default Trailer Shows You...:

@WYLD-WOO @PrincessEevee9
I do indeed realize it's a separate story. My point is the LACK of a story in the demo. Granted, it's free, so I guess I shouldn't complain, but they made it sound like there would be a bit of something, instead of just "Hey, fix this village and then go fight evil creatures." Maybe there's more that I'm missing, though

Also, @WYLD-WOO, I have mostly gotten the combat system down...I just feel like they make the setup way to convoluted and then don't do a good job of explaining it. Granted, I feel this way about a lot of JRPGs, so maybe it's just me. At the very least, if a game's going to have a super complicated battle system, I like it when they give visual tutorials or hands-on lessons...especially when it comes to some of those menus that are 5 levels deep...



FiveDigitLP commented on Shin Megami Tensei IV Soundtrack Released Next...:

Honestly, I get tired of these special editions that come with the "soundtrack" but then end up only being a sampler. It frustrates the heck out of me. At the very least, be open about it with your advertising.

I had this happen with Alice: Madness Returns, Bit.Trip Complete, and SMTIV to name a few. Though I don't really like most of the soundtrack, at least Solatorobo came with a full disc worth of music.

Sorry. Just had to vent.



FiveDigitLP commented on Video: A New Bravely Default Trailer Shows You...:

I'm really on the fence about this game after playing the demo. When I first heard about it, I was really excited and anxiously hoped that it would be localized. But the demo makes the gameplay seem fairly bland and unnecessarily complicated. Also, based on the Nintendo Direct, I expected there to be a minor side story in the demo, but so far it's just pointless fetch quests. I know there will be more of a story in the actual game, but I hope it's good because that was what initially had me interested in the game.



FiveDigitLP commented on GamePad High Capacity Battery Now Available in...:

Seriously? Why couldn't they have offered this a little bit sooner! My mom tried to purchase one for me from Japan (the batteries are the same no matter where you buy them), but ended up running into issues with the credit card company. They thought it was a fraudulent charge since it was coming from a foreign company, it seems.



FiveDigitLP commented on Video: This New Pokémon Bank Trailer Shows Th...:

Where the heck is that music from? The second one I know is from the game, but I'm not sure where. When riding the bike maybe? But the first song I recognize and have no idea where it's from.

@One-Winged-Pit that's a very good question! I've just assumed you have to them download to the game, but I'd happily be wrong.
