hypercoyote commented on Unity Support Is Coming To The New Nintendo 3DS:

Wow, this is awesome news. Definitely adds value to the New 3DS system!
I'm not understanding why people are complaining about this. The DSi came out and only it had the capability to play DSiWare, which completely shut out the previous DS generation. This isn't even nearly as bad as that was, at least on the old 3DS you still have the eShop. I would prefer for Nintendo to upgrade the capabilities of the system so people at least have the OPTION of having more content than not do it so people don't feel left out.

lol, eBay is just looking out for their own interests. It is very much in the interests of eBay to draw in auctions like these. They make 10% off the auction plus another 3% minimum from Paypal (albeit, some of that may go to card processing fees). I'm surprised by the post on the one hand since it is such a touchy subject, but on the other hand, I'm really not. My favorite was when eBay was acting so chivalrous when the US was looking at passing Internet tax laws and eBay was opposing them vehemently "in the interest of its users" when the fact of the matter is the law would've been a big blow to eBay itself.

Not sure if you can tell, but I have sort of a love/hate relationship with eBay lol.

I agree with this, the set date/time for preorders is a great idea. The only problem with that (which online retailers may or may not be aware of) is that when you do that, your site gets hammered at that one time. I mean, even the random release times caused some sites to struggle to bear the load. But I agree that's about the only option. Some other options would've been to provide a "preorder ticket" via Club Nintendo to allow purchases direct from Nintendo's store. I don't agree the limit should be 1 though, I think 2 is probably a more fair limit as many people (myself included) like to buy one to open and one to keep sealed. I don't think it's the people buying 2 that caused the issue, it's the people buying 20 or more.

@ThomasBW84

1) When will you guys be opening up "ScalperLife.com"? I think enough stories are posted about scalping to warrant its own site.
2) This isn't news anymore, people have been scalping for years and there have been reported stories about this in particular. Given that almost every story I've seen posted was by you, I'm assuming this is a personal vendetta.
3) By posting this, you are only making the problem worse. Now those would-be scalpers who were unaware of the value of the system now know to sell theirs.

This video is trolling....it's not credible, I don't know why it was posted here other than to spark a debate. And no, the fact that it uses Super Mario Bros 2 to explain it doesn't justify it.

Also, @Zach777, I agree. If we could work our way to God, why would we need Jesus?

I missed out on the preorders, so I ended up paying $50 for a preorder on eBay (something I normally would never do, I'm cheap lol). In hindsight, the extra $37 was worth it for me to not have to miss church and drive 1 1/2 hours to go buy a toy.

hypercoyote commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

For those who have bought one of these Wii titles, do they offer any additional features over the original release, like save states or a better interface, etc? Just wondering if I should pick this up now while it's cheap even though I already have the disc version.

It's the risk of being a collector. No market is 100% stable. Since things have started going digital, I've been clearing out my own game collection of anything other than what I want to keep personally. I still have my steelbook Metroid Prime Trilogy and I will likely keep it. Keep in mind though, the prices will likely rebound eventually, as the announcement probably caused a shockwave of sellers throwing theirs on ebay which flooded the market, though they may not achieve the all-time highs again.

hypercoyote commented on The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Sou...:

@BakaKnight Yep, I was one of them. Initially they said they would restock, but I think most people assumed it was going to be digital only. The mention about the restocks of limited exclusive items in NA came a few days later....after I'd spent the majority of my coins on Smash Bros Posters :( Here's hoping the restocked items I want are fairly cheap.

I gotta say that, overall, Club Nintendo has been a good benefit. We (myself included) complain about the lack of rewards and unfair currency, but honestly, it's a free service add-on that was not a part of the initial purchase price. So what you get is better than nothing. Many of us (again, I include myself here) just seem to have an entitlement mentality with things relating to Ninty, as if our fanship earns us the right to anything we want. I'm sure it's not that cut and dry, but I feel like the fan-rage over Amiibo, and the Zelda MM limited items partially comes from this mentality as well. Yea, scalpers contributed to the problem, but regardless of the cause, there's no sense in the amount of anxiety and anger I've seen (and experienced lol) over some material items.

One last short story - I was walking down the street mulling over having missed another opportunity at getting a Zelda MM New 3DS preordered when I saw a homeless man heating himself over a steam vent. So I'm thinking, my main concern right now is getting a game system and this guy's main concern is not freezing to death. Really puts things into perspective and caused me to pause and thank God for what I do have.
