RupeeClock commented on Pokémon Rumble World is One of the Top 10 'Tr...:

I'm still playing it a bit each day now, as I aim to beat it 100%.
I've beat all the challenges and caught all 719 available pokémon, all I have left are a few alternate formes to collect for titles. Specifically, Deoxys Defense form, about half of the Unown alphabet, Heat and Mow Rotom, Black Kyurem, and then there's the Vivillon. That one might not be possible.



RupeeClock commented on Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is Adventuring ...:

Please oh please don't use the F2P model, I mean Rumble World did it well but this needs to be a fleshed out title with a complete 720 pokémon roster and detailed invested story and post-game.

Plus a large number of fixes to problems that Gates to Infinity introduced, like not allowing players to take on multiple jobs, or forcing players to leave the dungeon after finishing the job objective, and the slow and impossible to quick-draw text.



RupeeClock commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Network 3 Blue & White...:

@alex167 For Battle Network 3, Blue is the title of choice for its additional boss fight and overly-broken Giga Chip

The reason for this is that originally in Japan, only one version launched: White.
They later released a Black version with extra content, which we saw in the form of a Blue version.



RupeeClock commented on 3DS Hack Removes the Need for Flashcards to Pl...:

It definitely seemed like an inevitability.

From what I understand there actually already existed such an exploit on older 4.5 firmware systems which enabled piracy, but only up to a certain selection of games.

This new exploit means nearly all current games could be pirated. It probably makes homebrew installation possible as well.



RupeeClock commented on More Club Nintendo Goodies Coming To The Europ...:

I'm personally hoping that whatever physical rewards I get will leave me with enough stars to get that Nintendo Consoles 3DS home menu theme as well.

I currently have 7740 stars saved up, theoretically if the MK7 trophies are 5000 stars, the Goodbye Coin is 1500 stars, that leaves me with 1240 stars to get two of the three available themes.
That is, if I go for an MK7 trophy, or if they are still available when I want to get my Goodbye Coin which is the absolute highest priority item here. I would hate to get an MK7 trophy and then discover I don't have enough stars for that coin!



RupeeClock commented on Bowser Jr., Dr. Mario and Olimar amiibo Now Av...:

They did in fact have Captain Falcon in stock briefly earlier, and it's already gone. Still, I took up the amiibo case offer and bought three amiibo I need in my collection, Bowser, Sheik and Donkey Kong.

I went for Dr Mario and Olimar & Pikmin, they look nice enough.



RupeeClock commented on Three 3DS HOME Themes Available Now From Club ...:

I might like the Nintendo Consoles theme, but I won't be easily parted from my stars for a theme when they could possibly be saved for a great physical prize.

Maybe after I've claimed a physical reward, I'll get a theme that can't be bought otherwise.



RupeeClock commented on The Pokémon Company Wants You To Enjoy Plenty...:

Of course, we already know every single password in the game for every region thanks to data mining.
Among the unreleased passwords are passwords for 30 free diamonds and three special outfits, which is especially nice for the free players.

Although the Charizard comes with a Mega Stone, the Hydreigon is much more useful for the virtue of being an 800 power gift pokémon among several 200 power gift pokémon.
Still nice of them to officially release a whole bunch of codes though.



RupeeClock commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

Three sessions across one day at short notice wasn't enough, I was only able to participate in one of the three sessions due to the schedule, and have a friend who works weekends who could not play at all.

We're gonna need a couple more Global Testfires for anyone who was not able to join in, it also wouldn't hurt NIntendo to host a few more after the game has launched.



RupeeClock commented on Teaser Site For Koji Igarashi's Castlevania Su...:

I would personally have to go with Sword on this one, it's more representative of the Metroidvania series of games.
Even Portrait of Ruin allows you to use swords rather than whips if you like. The whip was usually found in the secondary Belmont mode, the only game really necessitating the whip was Harmony of Dissonance.



RupeeClock commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off amiibo Tap: Nintendo...:

It's nice that for each title an amiibo can randomly unlock, the series of scenarios you get to play each act like an objective, clear the stage in the time limit, beat the boss in the time limit, etc.

In doing so it provides actual challenge and goals, so you can "complete" a demo. Much better than the time limits with no focused goals in Smash Bros Wii U's demos.



RupeeClock commented on Hacked Passcodes Leaked For 3DS eShop Microtra...:

The passcodes were hard-coded into the game from the very start, so there would not have been any plans to distribute them via software updates, unlike Pokémon Shuffle, and probably no plans to introduce further codes.

Using the codes does give a little boost to the gameplay, unlocking each of the gift pokémon will help increase your rank, and they'll come with special moves that are useful for the move tutor shop.
The 30 free diamonds is also of obvious advantage, but is still fewer than what can be earned through normal play or paid for at a minimum.



RupeeClock commented on Social Networks Go Into Meltdown Over Apparent...:

People who have used 3DS flashcarts and hacks can install homebrew emulators and such like blargSnes. When installed this way you'll transmit over streetpass that you recently played blargSNES for example.

Point is, anybody is capable of installing a homebrew application which would have an icon and title of their choice, they could then proceed to go into Nintendo Zones to automatically streetpass with dozens of people who'll see the fake title listed.
