GUYS i was in the Chicago based one. I made it past the first round. then they said you have to return the next day for quarter finals.. My parents didn't even consider returning again. Totally out of the question.

I also remember gameboys on display for the first time. The first time i saw tetris on a portable.

I also remember going and watching a boy show off his skills. He was the winner in california or something and he showed off how to get coins faster in the 1st part where you have to get i think 50 coins.. then you have to do 2 laps of rad racer? and then finally you have an overall time limit to get as many points as possible in tetris NES. SO cool. but that memory is so deep. hard to remember all the details. Also without internet back then, I had not clue who won.

mushroomer commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

I already voted for BONK.

The problem with opening up voting to the public is that majority of voters im suspecting will be the more recent generation meaning they wont even know what im talking about.

It was
Excitebike Racer
Thomas from Kung Fu
Mike Tyson (would be totally awesome. They could create a Dream Bout level.)
Wart from Super Mario Bros 2 USA
Birdo (why not)
Mother Brain
to name a few...

seriously.. this puts less and less faith in their NX online plans.. can you imagine? if they cant even get a SURVEY based online experience to work smoothly? how will they unify 3ds, wii u, nx, pc, and phones.. i guess if you dont mind waiting around 5 hours and hope you can log in... and once you are.. who knows if you can even jump.



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

What happens to all our digital purchases from previous generations? i am only on board with NX if you can bring thing to it. if not, they are asking some people to throw away hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of content. millions if you consider everyones purchases.



mushroomer commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

@Zombie_Barioth Im sort of leaning towards your theory that they need to get rid of excess inventory before the summer.. where i believe they will reveal The NEW Wii U to match the branding of The NEW 3DS. with more features.. but still compatible. its more like a 1.5 update of the system rather than a full 2.0



mushroomer commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

so 225+17(tax)+5(shipping) = 250ish for a used machine and who knows if it really includes club nintendo.

299.99 is for the new one so for about 50 bucks more, you get a brand new machine from b&h

BTW, anybody get this feeling that nintendo is trying to get rid of their inventory so that they can cash in on it before this summer? i really have this bad feeling about summer being the time they reveal The NEW Wii U. which will have many better features but still be a wii u but just have more features..

am i the only one?



mushroomer commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

@Sonicman I watched an unboxing video for refurbished bundle and they included club Nintendo codes. Also... They don't have tax free/free shipping so in the end... Is it really worth it? B&h photo has it 299.99 no tax free shipping. Let's do the math... And brand new.



mushroomer commented on Review: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars (...:

yeah, so i think the 10+10 will hopefully pay off for people who invest in this game not from the 80 levels that ship with it but... the community that could potentially get involved because its not tied to one console. also.. it costs money to upkeep online stuff and this game seems to be more involved. where you are doing some sort of tipping stars to each other. i am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be a great value but in the end, you may be right.

if it was 10 dollars, i can see how online and long term support might be difficult. but it would be nice if amiibo's could unlock things..

BTW on a different topic related to the game, did anybody notice on the official site, that there is this GOLDEN MARIO that you can unlock.. what if the Walmart Gold Mario could unlock that gold mario... as well as grinding..

take a look at the text next to the GOLD mario..



mushroomer commented on Review: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars (...:

@Nintendude789 there have been 4 or 5 games and only 2 of them were 10 bucks or so. 3 of them were full priced nintendo games 29.99 list price.

i think the 10 price was aimed at the digital download only games. that they didnt do too much developement on. but this game, since its cross buy between wii u and well as sharing between systems, they are sort of pioneering a new thing that nobody has ever done before.. i can definitely see the 20 dollar price tag as being a very fair price point.

if it was a 3ds eshop only game and there was no effort of changing much from prior iterations, then yeah 10 bucks.. but this game lets the community share levels and play levels between device and console. isnt that worth something?



mushroomer commented on Review: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars (...:

you guys need to have a comparison chart of the differences between previous mvsdk's. for example, the first one on the gba was a straight platformer like donkey kong where you control mario with the d pad and collect keys to open doors through puzzle filled rooms. mvsdk2 jumped over to the touch screen which meant you use your stylus to control the direction of the mini's and tap them to stop them and swipe up to make them jump. this was actually my favorite iteration.. after mvsdk2, the removed the ability to control the mini. this lost me. and i believe this new one is still the more lemmings approach.

what has me interested is the cross buy and level sharing community that is encouraged with tipping stars.

talk about friend codes and how they incorporate online. thats pretty important seeing they have always had that 16 digit hurdle in the past.



mushroomer commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

i remember scouring craigslist for people who would accidentally post a photo of their 3ds or wii u for sale and they take a photo of their club nintendo codes.. usually illegible.. but 2 of them were high resolution!!! not worth the time btw. 3 weeks searching for 1 code.. haha.. but no more of that!
