Well I was either going to pick this up or Rune Factory 4 depending on how the reviews for this were. With them being all over the place I think I may be going with Rune Factory for now and waiting for a price drop on Yoshi in the future.

sinsalaca commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I don't know what to think know. I had been on the fence about the game as many others were. I just don't understand how the reviews can be all over the place. I mean it would be one thing if there were consistent 5's, 6's across the board, but there are some sites going with 7, 7,9, 8, even 8.5. Now I have to decide whether to give into nostalgia or possibly look the spend that $40 on another game and maybe wait for a price drop.

sinsalaca commented on Hardware Review: Nintendo 2DS:

I'll say again what I said when I first heard about a 2DS. As a gamer I laughed at it. As the parent of a 5yr old boy who always wants to play dad's 3DS or his older brothers 3DS I like this option. He was rough with his ds lite and cracked the hinge so. Am hesitent to let him play either 3DS that is in our house. The design puts that worry to rest. Plus as far as only being 2D goes, he could care less. He would just get a thrill from being able to play the 3Ds games.
This build isn't about being able to put it in your pocket to and go. This build in Ninty actually thnking strategically and addressing an concerns that parents had about younger kids playing the 3DS. It might not sell like hot cakes, but I can pretty much say that I know of at least one 2DS that will be getting purchased.

sinsalaca commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

The gamer i n me looked at this and said what the hell are you thinking . The parent in me looked at this and went wow what a nice option for me younger son. My younger son tends to be rougher on things then my older son and managed to break the hinge on his ds. This model eliminates that worry. Also since he is only 5 he could care less about the 3d feature. He would be happy with the fact that he would be able to play the 3ds games that hid older brother and I already have. This will be getting serious consideration as a purchase for my son.

Own the Wii version and I love it. Unfortunately so do my 2 boys so I don't get to play it much. I will definitely be picking htis one up so hopefully I can get around to finishing it since i never seem to get a chance to finish the Wii version.

3DS
Luigi's Mansion
Nano Assaut EX

Wii U
Lego City Undercover

Might pickup Monstehr Hunter 3 or Lego City for 3DS since my b'day is tomorrow and add that to this list. Am unsure since it would be my first MH game and I am worried it might be a steep learning curve.

Regardless of what the price is Order Up is a great game. I purchased it on day one and it is a great game. The length of the game and amount of content made it well worth the orginal price tag. At the sale price it is a down right steal. May have to grab Mahjong 3D. I am a casual Mahjong fan, but seem slike a great value at that price.

sinsalaca commented on Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror ...:

Just finished reading the Ign review and it seems like the main reason they didn't like the game is because it wasn't a Castelvania:SOTN clone. I played the demo and while it is much different from previous games it didn't seem that bad. It amazes me from lookng at the Metacritic scores that 2 reviews found it pretty much dreadful, while most found it to be good, but not great. Seems like one of those games where if you liked the demo then it is an instnat by or eventual buy and if you didn't then you will pass on it. I liked it and will probably pick it up.

Already own retail copy of Bit Trip and already own Samurai and Mutant Mudds. So those are out. No interest in Keitzel so that is out. Will defintiely pick up Fratcure Soul. Liked the demo, but couldn't justify the price. $7.99 seems more appropriate. Not sure abotu Crasmo since I never fnished Pushmo yet.

Finally going to start Fire Emblem Awakening. Has been sitting it's case since Wednesday waiting for me to play it. Probably also a little Order Up since my son deleted my save file (by accident). May pick up Mega Man 2 if I find some extra cash too.

sinsalaca commented on Review: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS):

Tactical RPGs/ Strategy RPGs have always been video game kryptonite for me. I have tried a few but could never get into them. That said having played the demo only I was instantly hooked and think I may have to jump in and test the FE waters.

Clive it is for me. Already played the retail version of Code of Princess. Very nice hack-n-slash title. Would love to get Unchained Blades, but will need to come up with $30 first. So will probably have to push that off til a later date.

sinsalaca commented on Review: Crimson Shroud (3DS eShop):

Short? 10 hours for a game that costs $7.99 seems like a good value to me. Especially when you consider the number of games that have been released recenty that don't even last 5 hours and cost the same amount of money. Was never much of a fan of table top games like D&D, but am intrigued and may give it a whirl.

On the 3DS front it will be Rhythm Thief (loving this game) and Order UP with some Marvel Pinball 3D sprinkled in. Might start Centipede Infestation too (picekd it up cheap). As for other systems it will be Lego Batman 2 for the 360

sinsalaca commented on Review: Rayman Origins (3DS):

Was originally going to go all in and get it, but after playing the demo I may be changing my mind. I have it for the 360 and it is a blast to play on there. I didn't get that same enjoyment from the 3DS demo. The reviewer is rigth it does seem darker on the 3DS, plus playing it on a smaller screen also makes it harder to try and navigate some of the levels. Guess I will be passign on it for now. Maybe someday when if it ends up in the bargin bin I might pick it up then.
