Cool article, thanks for sharing.

For me, generations 1 & 2 are my favorites, with gen 3 at a close second. Yellow was the first game I ever played. Silver blew my mind with all its upgrades and enhancements. (And those animated Pokemon in crystal! lol)
In fact, tonight I'll be playing yellow with my girlfriend, it's her first time playing through



flummerfelt commented on Amazon Lists Pokémon Red, Yellow And Blue At ...:

If there is a lot of work involved, I guess $10 isn't terrible. I'd prefer $7.99 or something like that though, seems like more people would take the plunge at that price.

It'll also be interesting to see if they do discounts for buying 2 or all 3. I'd also love to see Pokemon green on there, although that's never happen.

Either way, glad that they are finally available. I want new players to see these older games and get a chance to enjoy them like I did back in the late 90s.



flummerfelt commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

I'm a huge Nintendo fan. I own every Nintendo console, and have purchased the last few at launch. But after being burned with the wii, the wii u, and I even upgraded to the new 3ds (those exclusive games?) I'm starting to feel pretty bummed. I've loved the first party games, and the 3ds has tons of good stuff. I just can't justify buying another Nintendo system until it's been on the market for a couple years. Especially if the NX comes out in 2016. Way too soon. Idk. I know that This rant doesn't matter since I ultimately chose to buy these systems... But I'd love to feel that my gamble on a new system has paid off. So far with these past few, it hasn't happened yet. Not fully anyway.



flummerfelt commented on Atlus Discounts 3DS eShop Titles in North America:

I loved etrian odyssey 4, might have to pickup Millennium Girl...

Also, question- I have been interested in the SMT series for a while now, yet I haven't played it at all. I was considering emulating the SFC game, but also starting with one of the 3ds titles. Where do you guys think would be a good place to start? Thanks in advance!



flummerfelt commented on September's Club Nintendo Reward Details Are C...:

I don't want to be the guy that complains about free or exclusive stuff but...
I wish they would have a better selection. Or at least bring back som physical gifts. I feel like the same games get offered up in some way or another all the time. Or games that everyone already has, like Legend of Zelda. It just sucks seeing physical rewards in other regions, yet we get nothing. Idk. Ultimately, I just don't want to spend more than a system's worth of coins on a $5 game.



flummerfelt commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

Wii U & Xbox One for me
I might get a PS4 in a few years, otherwise i'll wait until a little later in the generation. The only thing that could make me go buy a PS4 tomorrow would be if they released a Dragon Quest game exclusively for it.

Otherwise, I have a lot of retro consoles to play too. So many games, so little time...



flummerfelt commented on Brain Training / Brain Age Makes DS Début on ...:

Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious here, but... Why don't they just release a gameboy player style add on for DS games on the wii u? Even if it was $50, it'd be worth it, IMO. This just seems like a way to make more money... I really miss the old days when I could play all the handheld games nintendo had to offer on one single console: the Gamecube.



flummerfelt commented on Feature: What Can We Expect From Pokémon Omeg...:

I am pretty happy about these games coming out. Been playing pokemon since '99 (Yellow was my first game ever).

I'm curious to see how the transition to 3d goes, should be interesting. And those secret bases, so many possibilities...



flummerfelt commented on New Nintendo Selects Titles Coming to Australi...:

Why are games in Australia so expensive? $80 just seems like a lot for a new game, and $50 is a lot for a new select. I don't know the value of the dollar there though, so I'm lost. Especially since the Nintendo selects are so expensive, and you can get them for $15 over here in the states.



flummerfelt commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I'm only 21, but I haven't played a GTA game since the old top down view days of the earlier entries. It was kinda fun back then, but now...not so much. I find the hype for this game kind of funny, but I guess most people play this and black ops 2 nowadays. I honestly think the series now is a bit worthless, but I don't have to buy it so its whatever. I just think it's sad that this is the game that gets all the perfect reviews and hype when there are others that are way more deserving, in my opinion.



flummerfelt commented on Review: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (Wii U...:

@LDXD I know why I was confused- they released Battle of Olympus on the gameboy as well. But yeah I've always wanted to try it out!
I recently picked up Crystalis on the NES, I haven't played it yet though. Interesting that it was made by SNK. (Assuming we are talking about the same game)



flummerfelt commented on Review: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (Wii U...:

I just commented about this game in another topic but ill say this: Zelda II is an amazing game. If you love Zelda & want a challenge, try it out! If you like it, check out Faxanadu on the NES. Side scrolling adventure, with a more creepy atmosphere.



flummerfelt commented on Nintendo Download: 12th September (North America):

@XCWarrior I really enjoy Zelda II actually. There are frustrating elements to it, but something about it has a charm to me. I really like the side scrolling madness along with its difficulty, and the leveling up system was pretty cool. It also reminded me of Faxanadu, which is always a good thing. I understand why people don't like it, but I me it'll always be one of my favorite Zelda games along with ALttP & OoT.

Also- I think it was relieving to have a bit more sense if where to go in Zelda 2, as opposed to Zelda 1 where you wander around like a drunken kid with no direction haha. (Don't get me wrong, I really like Zelda 1, I just enjoyed the change of pace in 2.)



flummerfelt commented on Nintendo Launching Cloud-Based Pokémon Bank S...:

I wasn't too thrilled about paying for this service at first, but think about it. Nintendo had Pokemon box & ranch to store Pokemon, and those discs probably cost $30 to $40 each, but people bought it with no complaints. Also- remember that the price doesn't cover space exclusively, but server space as well.If price is your concern, then this bank thing isn't that big of a deal, as it would take 5-7 years before you spent as much as you had on the other storage options. I still don't know if I'll use the service, but I think it's a cool option, especially for people who want to start a new game.
