Played on 3DS. One of the funnest games EVER but still haven't really felt the urge to go back and play it a second time around. So in my case I wouldn't give it any merits on replay value even though it is randomized to some extent.

I would hope at this point no one is holding their breath for SNES games on the 3DS. Nintendo is super stingy with the virtual console and they are probably saving them for their next handheld system. I would be cashing in on the retro and platform trend right now if I was Nintendo, you never know how long before interest starts to diminish with these older games.

I really liked episode 1 but with these big gaps in between episodes it really kills the story or the enthusiasm for wanting to continue playing the series. This is the right way to do it. My advice to anyone who hasn't played it yet in US, wait for all the episodes to be released then get it.

PS4 for me until the new Zelda releases which seems like an eternity away from now. Seems to me the WiiU should have had more of these blockbuster titles that they are now working on at launch or closer to the launch date, that's just one of the mistakes they made with this current Nintendo console. Can't really say PS4 has much of a game library either but WiiU has had a year head start.

Where is Moon Chronicles? We used to have a release date and when that passed now all we got is Q2...I love Sci-fi and am getting a little tired of 8-bit platforming rehashes so this looked to be something totally refreshing.

I'm not sure if I have any complaints about the 3DSXL gaming wise. Sure the graphics could be a little better and we could use some HD but then you start approching the current gen power. I think the 3DS still has a few years left in relevance, minimum.
My biggest complaint about the 3DS is the awful apps that make it pretty much useless for anything other than gaming. I mean just god awful apps. Theres some advice Nintendo. Next time you are going to have to compete with tablets and smart phones. I mean give people a reason to pick up their handheld gaming device even if they are not interested in gaming at the moment.

I was totally obsessed with this game for about 3 weeks but the small number of multiplayer maps finally grew old and capped the amount of enjoyment I could get out of this game. Still, totally worth the $10 I spent on the full version. More stuff like this Nintendo!



shane1228 commented on Review: Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS):

Fun game but I'm thinking I may avoid the full version. Actually I think this may be the first time I really enjoyed a demo but it's just not something I think I am interested in owning the full version of. No doubt this game will be loved by many though.



shane1228 commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

I bought Kid Icarus:Uprising on eShop for $35(probably could have got a physical copy for the same price but it was a bit of an impulse buy), one of the best 3DS purchases I have ever made as it will offer you dozens of hours of gameplay and I have heard upwards of 100 hours for some. Super Mario Land 3D for $30 however, for a game that is a few years old and I have heard is very short, still seems over priced.

Oh come on, we all know it's not coming to the 3DS although that would be pretty awesome if it did. Nintendo will want to use the most powerful processing power available to them plus they have been really banking on the WiiU lately.



shane1228 commented on Talking Point: Steel Diver: Sub Wars Proves Th...:

I bought the premium almost immediately after I realized I would be playing this game a lot and wanted to support the developers and help finance possible updates and DLC and i will be honest, I would pay a whole lot more than $10 for this game. It's one of the funnest multiplayer experiences out there!



shane1228 commented on Console Wars Book Paves The Way For Movie Writ...:

Back then there was no console wars really, you got one system and hoped later down the road to get the other one too. There wasn't as many cross platform games so you wanted to have both systems and all their exclusive stuff. Nowadays you buy an xbox and you can play 90% of the games that playstation has too.



shane1228 commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:

I have only owned a 3DS for a few months(don't really play the 360 anymore) and have only purchased one physical game and about 10 digital games so this seems fairly accurate. I definitely attribute it to cheaper prices for digital. Also what I have noticed with 3DS games, is the good ones worth spending $40 on in the stores in my area are never in stock so I always end up buying them digitally.



shane1228 commented on Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars (3DS eShop):

I was wondering when this game was going to get acknowledged, I think everyone just assumes it is bad because of the Free model. Multiplayer errors aside, It really is a surprisingly awesome and addictive gem of a game. You really have to give it a chance and give yourself 2 or 3 rounds to get used to the controls and play the first few campaign missions for training then I guarantee you will be hopping online, getting caught in a win streak and finding it nearly impossible to put down the 3DS like everyone else!
