technotreegrass commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

The SNES has one of the best gaming libraries of all Nintendo systems. I understand that getting the proper licenses and whatever else you need to sell 3rd-party games can be hard, and the emulation process even harder. I've long since accepted the fact that most of my fave 3rd-party games of the NES and SNES will never reach the Virtual Console, BUT they shouldn't give up on the SNES, especially first-party titles.

Details are too vague on the NX for me to care about it at the moment, but I think that Nintendo can easily manage smart phone games and console games. Pokemon Shuffle was clearly designed for a smart phone and is well received if 1 million downloads are any indication. Toss that on a phone and get ad revenue, even if only 5% buy gems, that would be a nice payday for Nintendo.

I'll be using it to get all the pink pieces for the latest Monster Hunter puzzle, the only puzzle I have left to complete. I farm coins at work by disabling the WiFi and changing the date on the 3DS every time I hit 1000. On a good day, I can get 50 coins, and that fills up the blue pieces on puzzles mighty quick.

I'd much rather buy a full price game and DLC content for said game then a F2P. At least the DLC has a limit, you can't spend beyond the number of packs made available. A F2P has no limit, you could potentially spend hundreds, if not more. Sick to see people raise hell over DLC but F2P gets a pass.



technotreegrass commented on Nintendo Looking To Offer Affordable Smartpho...:

Would Gunman Clive 2 count as a smartphone style game? Yeah I doubt it but that's the kind of game I want more of on the eshop. I'm tired of match-3 puzzle clones, bike trials, and hidden picture search games. In the past year, outside of Gunman Clive 2, the only eshop games I've bought are Phoenix Wright, VC games, and M2 Sega remakes.

I bought a 3DS on launch day because I wanted a second DS to trade Pokemon on and I didn't want to deny myself future games by buying a DSi. I agree I barely touched it until Mario Kart 7 came out, then came a steady flow of eshop and retail titles, which makes it my personal largest game library for a Nintendo handheld.



technotreegrass commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Good thing I broke down and bought Luigi's Mansion after seeing only 4 copies left on the shelf last night. I was torn between paying full price and getting Club Nintendo coins or buying used at a discount. I'll definitely be catching up on my wish list of eshop games to maximize coins. Maybe end with another game case and a couple of digital games.

I REALLY hope that the new rewards system offers better physical rewards. I was getting SO tired of looking at the awesome things Club Nintendo Europe was getting while we had the same old crap for years, and if something great did come along, it quickly vanished, never to return. If the new rewards system offers the same items in all regions, I will be very VERY happy.



technotreegrass commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I won't be buying a N3DS until there's an exclusive game for it that is a personal must-own, but when that happens, N3DS XL is a must. I have strong prescription glasses and the bigger screen is so much easier to see, and the bigger system is easier on my hands in long play sessions.

I'm certain NA will see a standard N3DS released by Christmas or sometime next year.



technotreegrass commented on New Nintendo 3DS Prices Pop Up in Italy, and T...:

I want more details about the N3DS before I even consider buying one, but I am very grateful for its release as it has enabled me to buy a 3DS XL NES edition cheap. I learned my lesson after the GBA SP: don't settle for launch colors, wait until a sweet looking special edition before you buy new Nintendo handheld systems.



technotreegrass commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wise to Embrace The ...:

I don't watch Let's Plays on a regular basis but if I'm curious about a game but I can't download a demo, watching a Let's Play is the next best thing IMHO to get a feel for how the game operates and seeing if its worth a shot. I LOVE Mario Kart but seeing all those Luigi Death Stare videos confirmed that I needed to get the game and system. Nintendo REALLY needs to relax their policy on YouTube and sit back and collect the ad revenue.



technotreegrass commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

I think it's about the same as waiting 20 years and putting a discontinued console or game on the market for well above retail price, or jacking up the cost of Xenoblade or other rare-but-much-wanted Japanese games fairly recently after release.



technotreegrass commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:

I would also prefer new video games as opposed to movies, but maybe if the movies are profitable enough, we can get new games from these franchises. I would definitely see Streets of Rage and Altered Beast out of loyalty for playing the heck out of those games when I was a kid and still play them on occasion today.



technotreegrass commented on The Lost Worlds of Power eBook Arrives This We...:

Christmas has officially come early! I discovered Worlds of Power: Castlevania II at a local used book shop and I quickly fell in love with how awesomely stupid it was. I'm slowly buying up other Worlds of Power books when I can find them (Only found Mega Man and Bases Loaded II so far.) I can't wait to read these new stories.



technotreegrass commented on The Game Boy Color is Now 16 Years Old:

A lime green GBC was my first ever Game Boy, christened with Pokemon Yellow. I'm still addicted to that darn yellow mouse as I keep buying all the Pokemon games and their respective systems ever since.



technotreegrass commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

I find Gamestop has a much better selection then Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, and K-Mart, especially for older games or mid-level titles. I wouldn't mind if the one in the local mall disapears though. Tiny hole-in-the-wall, crap selection, and too many jerks manning the counter, always acting surprised that a girl is buying some hardcore game, nevermind the fact that I was playing the Genesis when they were in diapers. So long as I can keep the big store nearby, I'm happy.
