Flowerlark commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

I guess I'm one of the very few female e-shop regulars. And by regular, I mean 'has downloaded hundreds of games.' So I'm not sure what that's about, but I do know that the e-shop definitely takes a great deal of digging to find stuff, especially older titles, unless you know the exact name of the game you're looking for. Also, I must say that NOE's e-shop layout is a good deal less cluttered than NOA's. NOA's feels chaotic and the names of folders/ shelves can be confusing at times. Something to think about, Nintendo...

Flowerlark commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

I kept checking Gamestop's website to preorder a MM edition, but they sold out so fast I missed it. Very angry, and will NOT be giving a scalper money. Nintendo needs to wise up. Limit ONE 3DS of a limited edition per customer!! Also, freakin' make more stock so this exploitation stops. I'm importing a standard white 3DS, which was already more than I should have paid. But I'm glad I did since NA isn't getting the standard and the only XL that I was interested in is now sold out before it was even released.

Flowerlark commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I'm in the US, and am ticked off that we aren't getting the standard model. No awesome faceplates?? Come on!!!

Therefore I have an imported Australian standard white model coming in the mail sometime before the end of this month, which I plan to connect to the UK e-shop (I think that's possible, right? Don't I just select UK as my location and I'll get their shop?). I know I won't be able to play US games, but since I download everything from the e-shop anyway, that's not a big deal. Am going to hang on to my current 3DS as well so I can still play my American games.

Edit- fixed a typo. Blasted itty bitty phone keyboard! XD

Flowerlark commented on Pokémon Shuffle is a Match-Three Game With Sl...:

No thanks! I'm disgusted enough at iOS IAP bullcrap without my favourite gaming company adding to it. Even Playstation's DLC and micro-transaction make me angry. Once you have a game, items in it should be EARNED through dedicated play, not bought. Not only is it greedy, but IAP cheapens the game worse than using cheatcodes.

The only micro-transactions I will indulge in in games are ones like Disney's Magical World where even when you purchase a cafe or costume set, you still have to gather a lot of the materials within the game to complete the set. Or Fantasy Life where the DLC was a one-time expansion pack... though $9 did feel pretty steep. Good thing it about doubled the playtime and enjoyment I got out if it.

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

I didn't care at all for this game. I gave it a fair shot, but the graphics were hideous, and the gameplay slow and repetitive - even by Harvest Moon standards. There wasn't enough going on other than watering crops, plus the atmosphere of prolonged winter at the beginning is so depressing that it's pretty hard to power through.

By far the weakest HM game to me. But since it's not made by the usual developers, I'm not surprised.

Flowerlark commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

I am torn between HGSS and BW. I voted HGSS because I thought they were the most fun gameplay wise, but I love BW because there's actually some meat to the story, plus I really liked playing with all new pokémon. Sorry Zubat, Geodude, and Machop, but I really hate you guys...

Flowerlark commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

Am I the only person who loves gen 5??? BW are my fav Pokémon games BECAUSE they're nothing but gen V Pokémon. And I didn't like B2W2 because they mixed other gens in. Don't get me wrong, there's many a Pokémon from every gen that I love, but gen 5 just had that certain je ne sais quoi for me....

I'm still playing AlphaSapphire. Though since I like the older pokémon games better, I'm also playing Emerald alongside it. Sadly the battery died in my GBA cartridge so I can't do anything that requires the clock. Even so, it still rocks more than the 3DS games. They make pokémon WAY too easy these days.

Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Download: 30th October (North America):

Nothing for me. I pre-ordered the rabbit plush Harvest Moon bundle, so I won't be downloading anything. Still absorbed with Fantasy Life anyway! I'm on Origin Island as a demi-creator Paladin, and still have so much to do in that game!!

Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (North America):

I can't seem to buy any of the new Spinner themes. It tells me 'data could not be obtained' every time I try. I'll have to wait a while and see if it's Nintendo's problem or if it's my own internet crapping out again.

Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (North America):

I'm sorely tempted by HM2, but voted 'nothing for me' because I already have the physical cartridge and am trying not to download as much as I have been. Curse you Nintendo for having more fun games than I have time to play!

Must ignore Dark Witch too, which is gonna be hard...

Flowerlark commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I think ROMs and flash carts are okay if you have legally obtained and paid for the official cartridge of the game and just want all your games on one cart. Likewise, it's also useful if you buy an imported game legally, but do not speak the language it's in. In that situation a ROM with a fan-translation patch is the only way you might ever get to appreciate that game, as a lot of them never make it outside Japan.

Flowerlark commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

Really? I'm at more than 400 downloads in the e-shop. I think I may be close to 500 But considering that about half (or more) of those are DSiWares that are stored on the SD card and not on the homescreen, they must be exempt from the limit. I think you can only have 300 icons on your homescreen. I definitely have over 300 in all on my 64 GB SD card.

Flowerlark commented on Eiji Aonuma Plans To Shake Up the Puzzle Formu...:

I have recently lost interest in Zelda because every game plays about the same way, just with different graphics and gimmicks. But I think this new title is going to rekindle my interest.

I'm still disappointed that it wasn't FemLink/ Zelda that we'll be seeing, just another androgynous looking male Link... I was so excited that the pony tail might have signified a female playable character. :(

Here's vainly hoping that they'll ditch the green tunic and weird hat, at least.
