freaksloan commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

They should of just scraped the regular 3DS all together and just make the XL (LL) the only model available.

I was given a regular 3DS as a present and after only a week I sold it and bought an XL - I now own two 3DS Xl's and was/is considering buying a 3rd (have 2 kids) - I honestly see no reason right now to buy the new 3DS. I am gonna wait to see what kind of deals come out for the old 3DS XL's or I will buy a refurbished one from Nintendo for $135.

The $200 I has set aside for a another 3DS XL's I spent on buying a new 2nd PS3 500 GB on Amazon for $220. Will be putting it in the kids game room so they don't need to come into my game room and play Minecraft online with their cousins - it is so annoying having to listen to them :) Worth every penny.

freaksloan commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

Really the only thing that draws me to the New 3DS XL is the placement of the volume button. I already have 2 3DS XL's and been thinking about buying a third so I don't have to fight with the kids when I want to play. I think I am just gonna wait to see what deals come out for the old 3DS Xl's.

$200 plus no charger? that seems CRAZY. I have 5 chargers that will work with it, but it is still crazy that it does not come with one.

In comparison I just bought 2nd new PS3 500 GB for the basement on Amazon for $220.

I would pass on this, its XL or nothing. I own 3 DSi Xl's and 2 3DS XL's and I have sold 2 regular DS's and 1 regular 3DS. It's just not me, my kids 10 and 12 only want the bigger screens.

But it doesn't matter, we are in the States.

This is beyond pathetic and it is 100% Nintendo's fault.

As a lover of Nintendo it pains me to say it. Because of the mess with ambiio, I have not bought any and I have also not yet bought Smash Brothers.

Come on Nintendo, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!

freaksloan commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Nintendo 3DS T...:

It's the games, STUPID! :)

I do not play with the 3D on at all - neither do my kids.

I have 2 3DS XL's, and thinking about buying a 3rd. Because I have to fight with the kids when I want to play. I can get a refurbished 3DS XL from Nintendo for $135 - a lot cheaper than what the new 3DS is going to cost, so for me, no reason to wait for the new one.

freaksloan commented on Latest Sales Data For Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

I am 43, and I just started playing Pokemon Y, and it is the 1st Pokemon I have ever played. I have been a gamer since the beginning, but I have never gotten into games like Pokemon or Zelda. I have always been into side scrollers, racing and sports.

My 12 and and 10 yr old love Pokemon, so I thought I would give it a try. After Y I am going to start my first Zelda game, A Link Between Worlds.

I am waiting till after Christmas and hopefully get the games I want from Amazon Warehouse Deals after people return their Christmas gifts.

Last year, I killed and saved tons of money and all the games where in like new condition, most were not even opened.

freaksloan commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

I will be picking it up when I can get it for a decent price from Amazon Warehouse Deals used.

I am not a fan of Zelda games, but I like Dynasty Warriors.

freaksloan commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:

Can't wait for the Wii U version, I will not be buying the 3DS version. I got the demo and my 43 year old eyes just can't handle it, and I even have the 3DS XL. The players are just too small and there is just too much stuff going on, my 11 son had no problems, but it is a no go for me.

freaksloan commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I am happy with it. Why complain about something that is free? I don't get crap from Microsoft or Sony.

Kids want Game & Wario and I want NES Remix. I think I should get to choose since they picked Pikmin 3 for the free game for buying MK8.

freaksloan commented on E3 2014: Amiibo Figures Will Have A Price Tag ...:

With Skylander's and Disney's Infinity - you really need to buy them all for just one game. I have hundreds and hundreds of dollars invested into them,

With these NFC figures you really just need one and will work on multiple games. I would have no problem paying $10 to $15 for them. At the moment, I will only be buying 3, one for me and one each for both of my kids.

I think I might get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Wii U - I have it on Xbox 360 but I hate that damn thing and never touch it.

My son wants The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and its cheaper than I have found it anywhere online, so maybe I might pick that up also.

freaksloan commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Life's E3 Reaction - Live!:

My 11 year old son, 9 year old daughter and myself all LOVED IT! We are excited about the future of Nintendo. We have a Wii U and 2 3DS Xl's, and we can't stop talking about the games we are going to get for both.

We also have a Xbox 360 and PS3 and there was nothing presented by Microsoft or Sony that makes us even want a PS4 or Xbox One.

Knock it off with the insults and profanity — TBD

freaksloan commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

I have not been this excited about a game for a VERY LONG TIME! Honestly the only reason I bought a Wii U. Pre-Ordered from Amazon, just sitting here waiting not very patiently.
