I will not be buying any New3DS. Just don't have any justifiable reason to. I already have 2 3DS XL's and I never play with the 3D on.

If the prices go down, I will be buying a third 3DS XL, so I don't have to share with my kids.



freaksloan commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

I am a life long gamer, I am 43. I never realized until I started visiting gaming sites that Gamers are a bunch of whinny pricks.

I swear no matter what the article is about, it is nothing buy whining and pouting.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised since I also discovered that most lean to the left.



freaksloan commented on Pokémon Bank Subscribers to Receive Final Evo...:

I like Pokemon Bank because they only allow one save file on Pokemon games :(

My kids also play Pokemon, but I am not buying 3 copies of every game. So I play the game first and when I am done I transfer all my Pokemon to the bank and then my kids take turn playing.

When they are done - I transfer my Pokemon back to the game.

So the Pokemon Bank comes in really handy for me.

I can't make money off of other people music without giving them a cut and getting their permission.

I can't make money off of the NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL without giving them a cut and getting their permission.

I can't make money off of other peoples movies without giving them a cut and getting their permission.

But when it comes to Nintendo I should be able to make money off their products without giving them a dime and without their permission?



freaksloan commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I honestly don't get watching people on UTube play video games.

Call me crazy, I rather use that time playing the games myself.

I am about to ban UTube in my house - I swear that is all my kids do is watch other people play Minecraft on it.

We have two sign-ons for PC w/private server, we have it on PS3, Xbox 360, Kindle Fires, Ipad Mini 2's, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Tab 3 8.0 and Samsung Tab 4 10.1. The only thing we don't have it on is 3DS and Wii U and if it was available we would probably have it on those also.



freaksloan commented on Sega's Digital Restructure Means 300 Staff Wil...:

I took a Voluntary/Mandatory retirement from Citibank 6 years ago. I was one of 35,000 to do so Worldwide. I got the notice the same day they got their government (taxpayer) bail out.

I received a nice payout so I took the retirement to heart (became a stay at home dad) - about three years ago I decided it was time to go back to work, and NOTHING!

Basically, if you are long term unemployed they just throw your resume in the garbage. The only time I get a call is when I lie on my resume and say I am still employed or just was laid off.

Thankfully, I know how to handle my money and have always lived within my means. The bills are still getting paid and nobody is going hungry. My gaming hasn't suffered either.



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.



freaksloan commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

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.



freaksloan commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

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.
