maceng commented on International StreetPass Week to Bring New Str...:

I live in Dominican Repulic and I must admit that Streetpass hit are very, very rare. The other day I went with my kids to a college picnic day, and I got a measly 3 hits...

Now, we usually rely on our own 3ds (we have more than 15 of them), to keep the streetpass hits coming, specially for Pokemon Shuffle.

Having said that, I really enjoy the Streetpass games, in small short bursts. We already finished the dungeon one, and we are at the end (we think) of the Mii Squad.



maceng commented on Mega Blastoise Event Launches in Pokémon Shuf...:

Got in to the top 9000 (like 8700 or something).

many people waited to the last minute to participate (around 300K participated).

Used both "cheats" in order to get to this place. (yeah, I suck at this).



maceng commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Same here. I bet Fantasy Life was an incredibly good game, but there is a lot of that on the 3DS. My backlog reaches a year long, and games like Shovel Knight, last Shantae and several Etrian Odessy games are clamoring to be played with.



maceng commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

i don't really see what;s the problem with locking content on the amiibos, It is just more convenient that having to download anything. Yes, you pay for the figurine and for certain amount of game, that's it. It's like complaining that after buying a car, the salesman calls you and offer a new stereo or something and that can be readily attached to your car, for a given price.

Even day one DLC does not bother me. If I buy Mario Kart and found it to have a lot of content for what I paid for, then if they offer more of it, I'm game (pun intended).



maceng commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

So many crybabies...

With Awakening I got like 80 hours out of the game. I bought it with a Shin Megami offer: buy both, get 30 bucks in return. So it cost me around 25 dollars. It was a steal for the amount of content.

If each of these releases amount to the same or more , er, amount, of content, then I won't mind at all.



maceng commented on Review: Super Destronaut (Wii U eShop):

Same here.
I just can't understand the developers aiming for the Wii U when on the 3DS they could have a much bigger audience. Maybe Nintendo is throwing money at developers to have their games ported to the Wii U instead of the 3DS.



maceng commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

I have 2 Platinum rewards that I'll gladly exchange for a Gold reward and a 250 coins game (earthbound) in one instance, and a Gold member reward and a 200 coins game (haven't decided yet). My email is:



maceng commented on Garfield and Paddington Bear to Star in Upcomi...:

I think that Garfield even looks better than other kart games for the 3DS (third party, and I'm looking at you Face Riders).

I've been looking for some basic karts for my daughter as mario Kart is a bit daunting for her. Already ordered Kitty and friends 3D racing...



maceng commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

I'm a genius!!
Almost all predictions came thru:

DLC for Mario Kart, check.
A couple of characters for Smash Bros, check.
Some Splatoon amiibos, check.
GameCube, Wii and some more Game Boy Advance goodness, close, we got N64 and DS games instead!!



maceng commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

I have all the Platinum games, except for NES remix 2 (I have the first one), and which I'm not really interested. The Gold games' choices are just too underwhelming and not "valuable" enough for all the effort and Club Nintendo's last hurrah.

Oh, well. I have three accounts (me, myself and I) so the 3ds is getting Pushmo, Crashmo and Super Mario Bros.



maceng commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

I'm with you. Release a couple of good GameCube games (Sunshine, Luigi and Paper Mario are all good choices, IMHO), along with a couple of Wii games (The Conduit I y II, or Mario Sports Mix with Mario Sluggers included!!).

Pad it a bit releasing some more DLC for Mario Kart, a couple of characters for Smash Bros, some Splatoon amiibos and some more Game Boy Advance goodness, and we are all set!!



maceng commented on Review: Dot Arcade (Wii U eShop):

I have a Wii U, and stills feels like a waste. The gamepad should not be used to cater to these kind of games, but shine in what is called asynchronous gaming.

When a game hitting the Wii U is meant to played on the gamepad, then, IMHO, is a waste.



maceng commented on Limited Time Lucarionite Competition Opens On ...:

In my first 3 trues, I scored 14 thousand something. I was placed in the mid's 900, so it isn't impossible.

I'm getting my Pokemon to be stronger as possible, and to try with both "cheats". Pokemon - 1 and the one for blocking interference, to see if I can get to the top 100 or something.



maceng commented on Pokémon Rumble World Rated By the Australian ...:

I think it is a bit of a stretch to call it a "successful spinoff" of the Pokemon series. Both the Ranger and Explorers have been more of a hit.i even think that even the Conquest one on the DS was rather successful.



maceng commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

One device will mean two things:

1. It will be underpowered. Not matter what anyone thinks, and unless Nintendo is planning to develop two flavors of every game, a handheld with the power of the PS4 wiil have to be sold (today), for 600 bucks or so. In 2 years, the price might be lowered down to 250-300 dollars.
2. Say goodbye to dual screens gaming. his doesn't matter much as the implementation of dual screens have been underwhelming for most games (I can think of maybe 10 games, among DS and 3DS titles where it works). You just can't watch the portable screen and the TV at the same time: the Wii U proved it.



maceng commented on Review: OlliOlli (Wii U eShop):

Completely agree with you. I almost solely play 3DS games and there are like 20-30 retail games I haven't even started like all the Demon Survivor games, Shin Megami Tensei, Cave Story, Sonic Lost World, etc., plus a good couple of eShop gems, like Shantae (the first), Moon (well, I played like 5%), Kid Icarus 3D classics, Citizen of Earth, Puzzle Quest, etc.

Still, I'm gonna take a vacation from work by July and spend some time finishing Kid Icarus Uprisinig, Mario Sticker Star, Mario Golf Tour and Shantae Risky's Revenge.



maceng commented on Review: GravBlocks+ (Wii U eShop):

Sp, according to the score this is not a "good" game. Great gameplay, lots of customization, several modes, excellent writing, plenty of stages, nice music and sounds are somewhat trounced by muddy visuals?? Am I missing something?



maceng commented on Nintendo Executive Discusses the eShop, Indies...:

The kind of games that I usually like (the kind of game that I usually buy consist on a much larger library) have almost all or most of these features:
humor, replayability and nice graphics (not necessarily HD). So games like Shovel Knight, Shantae, Pokemon Trozei, Steamworld DIg, Steeldiver Sub Wars, and so on. Ok, these are the top of the line games, but a game like Trozei or even Shovel Knight can (easily) be made,

Also, I love games with minigames, such as Bioshock, Moon, Thief, etc.
