gamepopper commented on Renegade Kid Worried About 3DS Piracy:

If the 3DS was region free, games were more readily available, the online shop didn't restrict you to a points system, there would be less reason for hacking. Hacking has great benefits, some of them give gamers a better experience with their work, so they shouldn't be the only ones being blamed for piracy, the pirates themselves who encourage it themselves.

So Renegade Kid, it's understandable to be a bit paranoid over piracy, but remember there are reasons why it exists.



gamepopper commented on Feature: Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symp...:

I had a great time there with my sister. Sadly I had to leave and miss most of the second part to catch the last train to Stafford, which I missed...

Although I wish it didn't take over an hour to start, I know they needed time for people to get to their seats, but when you start over an hour after the ticket time, it gets frustrating. If it started earlier I would've missed less.



gamepopper commented on Talking Point: The NES Games You Want on 3DS V...:

Solstice: The Quest for the Staff of Demnos
Zelda II
Little Samson
Startropics know what, I'd love to see more obscure NES titles available to download unlike the ones that ALWAYS become either downloadable or ported like the Megamans, the Marios and the Zeldas



gamepopper commented on Nintendo Faces Lawsuit Over 3DS Screen Patent ...:

Nintendo is a big company, and has been experimenting with 3D for much longer than Tomita has worked on it probably. Heck, Autostereoscopy has been researched for over 20 years, just because one guy says he filed a patent doesn't mean that much unless he used the idea for something that was similar to the 3DS.



gamepopper commented on Localisation Evidence Grows as Pandora's Tower...:

You know, this reminds me of another case. A popular Japanese title that was demoed at the Japan Expo leading to the speculation that it would be translated...what game was that? Oh yeah, SOLATOROBO: RED THE HUNTER! And that game got a European release and a planned US release as well! I guess there is still hope!



gamepopper commented on Talking Point: The Growing Storm of Operation ...:

With all that, it doesn't really explain why us in Europe are getting them and not America. In the 90s we got very few RPGs because of the lack of popularity of them in the US. Today, we have gotten quite a few RPGs, and we are getting three games liscensed by Nintendo in Europe but not America because...



gamepopper commented on 586 People Playing DS Earns Them a World Record:

Believe it or not, that's the video I recorded in the attempt. I don't know about what the majoritory of people were playing, though there were many people playing different versions of Pokemon. I played Bangai-O Spirits and the guy sitting next to me was playing a shoot 'em up. I also remember 8 people were removed from the count for not playing on their DS (and one guy tried to use a hand drawn and cut-out DS). I couldn't record the entire event of course because we all had to play for 10 minutes non-stop.
