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.



freaksloan commented on Guide: The Best Cyber Monday Nintendo Deals in...:

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.



freaksloan commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Launches 30% Off Discount Bo...:

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.



freaksloan commented on Ubisoft Discounts 18 Games on the North Americ...:

Just paid $19 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on Amazon, $7.99 for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars 3D on Ebay and $18 for ZombiU on Amazon.
Sorry, I don't do digital unless there is no other options. Makes no sense to pay more for less.



freaksloan commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

Right now nothing is better than Amazon Warehouse Deals - It is were I buy almost all my games for the 3DS and Wii U. If you check regularly and are ready to buy when you see what you want, you can get anything you want. I have gotten recently Pokemon X and Y, two Animal Crossing New Leafs and 2 Mario Kart 7 from anywhere between $20 to $25 and all were in like new condition. I just got the Disney Infinity Starter Set for $21, the box was never even opened.

I doubt Wal-Mart will beat Amazon, but I will given them a shot. Gamestop sucks for used games and I don't even bother with them. At Wal-Mart I would have to pay sales tax, so their deals would have to be extra good.
