penfold007 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS:

The fact that whether you enter a battle while using the circle pad or d-pad seems to determine whether the battle plays out in 3d or 2d has totally won me over for some reason. Just think that is a really cool quirk.



penfold007 commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Last gen I own all 3 home consoles though I don't think I owned a single 1st party xbox exclusive. Draw your own conclusions from that. Now all I'm trying to juggle is the wii u, ps4, ps3, psvita, 3ds and a 18 month old.... Off-Tv and remote play have been a god send cause I can blast through a MK 8 gp while the wee one watches mickey mouse clubhouse.

Loving the VC discount system Nintendo are running on new releases (re-releases I suppose). Its total impulse buy baiting, and my bank balance will no doubt suffer in the long run, but I shall definately be taking advantage of it as often as I can.

I'd seriously consider paying the upgrade price just to replace my 50hz wii vc games with glorious 60hz versions. The off-screen play, restore points, button mapping, miiverse intergration is just gravy to me, very tasty gravy. Mmmmmm gravy.



penfold007 commented on Nintendo Renews Eternal Darkness Trademark:

@Sensei_PikPik Words. Out. Of. Mouth. Makes you wonder that if it was to happen with Retro would they take the same approach as Metroid and change style (Resi 4-alike anyone) or DCK:R, faithful to the original just revamped for modern tech.

Even if Retro aren't working on it I hope someone is.



penfold007 commented on 3DS Second Circle Pad Formally Announced:

This to me seems like a wasted opportunity to do something about the battery life. Monster Hunter, big epic game, 3DS pretty poor battery life, big plastic cradle for 3 extra buttons and a circle pad... Why not incorporate an improved battery similar to those released by nyko into this? Then it might be something all 3ds owners might be interested in, not just those playing MH.



penfold007 commented on Donkey Kong:

There was an unlockable version in donkey kong 64 that had the four levels I think. Speaking of DK64 I hope they bring that to the VC once they bring out the trio of snes games.
