If they did this properly, imagine buying a game download code in a shop, scanning/entering it into a mobile app/website on your phone while there, then it auto-downloading at home - and might be ready by the time you get home!

that'd be so perfect.

Martyn commented on Talking Point: 3DS eShop Deserves Big Franchises:

Agreed completely!
They could even just release sequels to older games, Mario VS Donkey Kong (as mentioned) would be great or Mario Bros. Or new versions of Dr. Mario, Wario's Woods, Pokemon Puzzle League, etc would be pretty sweet. (all with Nintendo Network features such as online play) Or Balloon Fight...actually get on that one NOW Nintendo!

Smaller off shoot titles related to upcoming games would also be a good idea and would be great promotion for them.

What i'd do for a new Wario Land though...

They have so many IPs and options available that they could utilise!

Martyn commented on Talking Point: Does Nintendo Finally 'Get' Dig...:

@mamp Couple of examples of existing game sizes:
Kid Icarus - 1.6GB, Mario Kart 7 - 0.66GB, Ocarina of Time 3D - 0.47GB Super Mario 3D Land - 0.31GB.
At least so far there's not many hitting the higher limits and hopefully shouldn't be too much to worry about :)

Martyn commented on Organise Your Home Menu With New 3DS Update:

@GreenSpleen The SD Card menu was just used as the actual system couldn't run titles straight from an SD Card, you basically selected one from the SD Card + it temporarily copied it over to the Wii's internal memory when you tried running it :)

There's no need for an SD Card menu on 3DS as it can load items directly from the inserted SD Card. :)

Martyn commented on Pokémon Black & White Version 2 Announced:

Why are people complaining about a game based purely on it's name? They AREN'T going to just re-release Black/White with a new Pokemon form. They aren't stupid.
Just wait it out until we get actual information about it.

Martyn commented on Pokémon Black & White Version 2 Announced:

"here's a copy of the same game with two new half-Pokemon and a proper Battle Subway. -_-"

You obviously missed the part where it said THEY'RE SEQUELS.

would be happier if these were for 3DS tbh, but still buying either way.

Martyn commented on Dillon's Rolling Western Spins to Europe Next ...:

@Aquateen510 "How come Europeans always get the good games while we Americans get them last?"
On just the 3DSware side of things, You have that third party Samurai game, VVVVVV, Mutant Mudds, and Sakura Samurai! None of which have seen release in Europe yet.

facepalm

@JusticeColde
If your internet isn't fast enough or you have no access at all, buy the game in shop.
If you buy the digital version and download it, you'll still be able to play it even if you move to somewhere with no internet.

In europe, 3DS games retail for around 40 euro. A 32GB Class 10 (highest speed) card is less than 30 euro, there's absolutely no excuses for "i can't afford an SD card" especially as this future proofs you. (Especially after spending $200 or euro on the console, at least)

Martyn commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd February 2012 (Europe):

@Koops3
"some of you are ungrateful, we still don't have Kid Icarus."
You have that crap Samurai game, VVVVVV, Mutant Mudds and Sakura Samurai by Nintendo coming this week.
That's way better than Kid Icarus. (which i downloaded, played for two minutes and haven't touched it since)

At least Nintendo should be doing simultaneous releases for it's first party 3DSware titles. >.<

..Are people seriously complaining about running out of space on the included SD Card?
Buy a 32GB card, they're really cheap nowadays. Be sorted for pretty much ever. That'd fit 10+ retail title, and probably all the 3DSware/Virtual Console titles you'd end up purchasing for a long time!

They could also use this to release niche titles which originally might not make it to certain regions. Would be a cheaper option and less risky than retail, and more chance of people picking them up as a impulse download if they're cheaper than they would be on a retail release.
Already did similar with the Wii's Virtual Console + the Hanabi Festival and all, releasing (old) titles digitallly which weren't released before.
The convience factor would also be a plus. Buy 32GB card. Fit 10+ full retail games, all your 3DSWare/Virtual Console/Demos, and more.

Pretty exciting news anyway.

@Crunc They said they "currently have no plans" not that they'll never do it! It's all about how they worded it :)

@Tasuki
It's completely optional. and it saves the data to your device i believe (encrypted using a password you choose). and you must enter your password to add funds from it.
Get your password wrong 3 times and it deletes all your credit card info. :)

Martyn commented on Guide: Nintendo 3DS System Update:

@TourianTourist saw someone post this

"SO I HAVE DONE THE SYSTEM TRANSFER AND CAN CONFIRM THAT IT IS AN EXACT TRANSFER FROM YOUR OLD 3DS TO YOUR NEW ONE!

All of my saved data, 3DS games, 3D trailers, virtual console games, NES games, and settings are there, including all the Mii Plaza stuff. It's all unchaged. Most importantly, the little Ambassador Program video icon is still there which I assume means those of us who transfer will still get the GBA games when that starts rolling out.

It even has my icons on the main menu in the size and order I originally had them on.

It seems like it does like when you do a Time Machine backup for a Mac where it restores all your settings, only your old 3DS get wiped in the process instead. Otherwise, it seems identical so far."

so seems it should be fine! :)
