RupeeClock commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:

What you really mean is that the device rather than loading ROMs off a removable storage, will read the ROM stored on a legitimate game cartridge.

Can I see a source on emulation of proprietary hardware being illegal? I understand that is the case if you have to make use of official BIOS or DSP files, but emulators will usually make use of substitute homebrew BIOS/DSP files and encourage you to use those instead, or alternatively dump your own BIOS/BSP for use.



RupeeClock commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:


Actually, the same web browser exploit has been used to achieve region free game loading, and also achieve certain other things like alternative homebrew loading.

Because of the nature of being able to modify and inject into the memory of a suspended game, there is actually a LOT that could go wrong.

I mean, how long until we start seeing things posted on Miiverse that should never be posted? What if any 3DS game can have its memory modified to perform a simple image display command?

Pac-Man pre-orders all gone too, leaving just Charizard and Wario.
Surprisingly, like on there doesn't seem to be as much demand for these two. Wario is one thing because of the biker gear, but this is Charizard. Maybe these two have much more supply by virtue of franchise?

@Bushido_Fai My observation is that whilst the pre-orders for Wave 3 part 1 ran out, they restocked all of them for purchase today, except for Rosalina.

So it's likely that when Wave 3 Part 2 launches, or when Wave 4 launches, they'll have some stock ready for immediate purchase too.



RupeeClock commented on GameStop Cancels European Rosalina amiibo Pre-...:

The Lucario amiibo I pre-ordered from Nintendo UK's official store arrived just fine today, but that was the only one due for release this week that I ordered.

I'm hoping there's no issues with my Ness amiibo pre-order, since I ordered that from This morning actually, I got an email confirmed that although the price for the Ness Amiibo went up (to £15), I won't be paying that since I have already paid for mine.



RupeeClock commented on Rumour: Terraria is Making Its Way to Wii U an...:

I frigging love Terraria, but call me skeptical about a 3DS version.
The original PC release before numerous updates ran at 640x480. The 3DS' top screen is 400x240.
The 3DS is actually a very low resolution device in today's marketplace, and isn't necessarily suited to straight ports from PC titles.

I uh, how is Starbound an "Evolved" version of Terraria? Isn't it still lacking a great deal of content to resemble a finished game worthy of publication?



RupeeClock commented on Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition Coming T...:

It looks quite fun, but I'll wait to learn more through reviews before I considering buying this one.
I hear it's quite heavy on micro transactions for success in Japan, to the extent that you can sell accounts for the game because you have rare monsters.



RupeeClock commented on Tri-Strip Brings That Vintage Game Boy Feel To...:

The look is spot on, but to the fault that the contrast is poor making it hard to look at. Some things are not worth achieving, unless there's a contrast option to include.
I mean the Gameboy Pocket with its sharper grey display, that's retro too you know. There's nothing wrong with color either.

In any case the puzzle game itself looks solid too.

No, it does not. Instead the registration process is supposed to be like that of the Wii U.
Registration will apparently not be possible until the official UK/EU launch of the New 3DS.

I'm personally hoping that my New 3DS XL imported from Australia will be eligible for registration.
