noctowl commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I spent the money, punched in codes, took surveys...for this? If I wanted any of those games id already have them. I hope all the codes on eBay shows Nintendo what a terrible idea this was.

@Th3PlaidHatter except it's not free. If you got platnium status without paying anything id love to know the secret.



noctowl commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

@Einherjar I feel ya. I thought record players, Walkman, and intellivison were fascinating when I was a kid. I NEVER would of looked at that old stuff and thought "junk." Now they just sit at watch youtube between free apps downloading and think they are living it up. It's sad.

@AhabSpampurse seriously. Bet they have smart phones too. Dear future son or daughter: you'll thank me when your older that you didn't have all the crap that your friends had.



noctowl commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

Piracy is a non issue. It's a boogeyman in a closet.

1. It's been proven that -most- people will get games the legitimate way if given the opportunity.

2. For everyone that 1 doesn't cover, the rest would never pay for it to start with. For example, I only buy EA games used because I disagree with their values. They haven't seen a penny from me in years. If the game used market(or piracy) goes away, I'll just do without. Millions of addtional revenue from this group just isn't going to happen.



noctowl commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

@gurtifus I can't do that with vita games , iphone games and apps to my wife's phone. So I'm not sure why you'd expect to do that on a Nintendo device. I don't know any digital service that let's you lend games to other people.

That's not what people usually mean when they say tied to hardware. They mean software can't be replaced if the hardware is lost or stolen.

@ferthepoet buy a new system, call Nintendo and they can do it for you. It definately isn't ideal and needs a lot of improvement. But your games wouldn't be gone.



noctowl commented on Miiverse Update Adds Post Embed Option, Activi...:

@yuwarite personally I mainly use it to post cool screen shots or ask for help. In most cases (for me) i get a reply faster than I could of found it on google, especially new games.

I'll also admit to having fun trolling people. The smash community has TONS of posts just begging for trolling. After several warnings, I figured out how to get other posts deleted/ users banned while I myself stay within Terms of service.



noctowl commented on Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the...:

I loved the original so much. So much in fact that I forced my friends/family with a 3DS to buy it offering them a refund out of my. pocket if they didn't love it. Luckily the game is cheap and awesome so I haven't had to pay up.

Playing as a duck was hilarious and awesome.

@B3ND3R thank you so much for sharing, that made my day!

I didn't do that great haha. 2nd place with ZSS on a stage I don't remember then 4th with Samus on the megaman stage. Yellow devil is super annoying to deal with. But 4th place isn't bad when the shy, timid, and awkward guy your standing next to for hours takes first place and all he can do is shrug his shoulders when he's congratulated. Priceless.
