Re: 3DS Demo Units @ Best Buy stores

theblackdragon

i'm agreeing with chiwii — that site is weird. when i put in my zip code, it shows one location that apparently has a retail kiosk, but when i try to click it for more info nothing happens. i looked on the actual Google Maps site in the same spot, and it turned out to be a pool and spa retail store. wtf, why would they have a 3DS... and why is my local Best Buy not on that locator at all, since it totally has one? haha~

again, like chiwii suggested, i think the most accurate indicator is going to be calling around. :3

Re: My Review of the 3DS

theblackdragon

my Best Buy has a kiosk now, yay... but it only had pilotwings demoing on it. never been a huge fan of pilotwings anyway, so maybe that kinda killed my feelings about it, or maybe it's because i'm not really prone to buying into mad hype anyway, but i wasn't terribly impressed — just felt like a new console to me was all. i couldn't really get the 3D to work well (i'd finally gotten it set OK for third-person flying, but then when i switched to a first-person view, i couldn't get the 3D to work for my eyes at all, which was totally weird :/).

something i thought was interesting, though, was that when i moved my head out of the 'sweet spot' for 3D viewing, the screen looked 2D; i'd been wondering how moving out of the sweet spot would work and whether or not it would be too disorienting, so that was good to see. 2D play looked great, though.

i do like the circle pad quite a bit, it felt nicer than the DSi's D-pad. and i also liked how the demo was timed, so people can't just keep on playing and playing when there are other people who want to try it out, haha :3

also, the 3DS at the kiosk was the blue one... it was rather smexy IRL. if you're on the fence, i'd try and see it in person at a kiosk if i were you before writing it off :3

Re: Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund

^ this is apparently how they're explaining the situation via TV to young children in Japan — as an extended poop joke. it's hilarious to us, but i bet it's working pretty well to calm kids' fears over there. god bless the japanese, lol :3

Re: DS problem....should I send it in for repair?

theblackdragon

@Starlight: the OP's console would still be under warranty, though, since they only bought it maybe half a year ago. if it's still under warranty, Nintendo'll take care of it free of charge if they deem a repair order necessary, shipping and all.

Re: Favorite Cartoons based on a videogame?

theblackdragon

@Link79: you can tell the difference between the two easily, especially after he starts warming up to the role during the Aladdin saturday-morning cartoon, i think — he kinda started making Genie his own, which isn't a bad thing, but his voice isn't as liquid and smooth as Robin Williams', not by a long shot.

anyway, he's pretty much done all voicework for Genie ever since he replaced Robin Williams, plus he's Scarface in The Batman, he did Earl for Cow and Chicken, and he was Megavolt in Darkwing Duck. the man's done a lot of voicework over the years, lol. :3

Re: Worst 3DS Feature? No Gameboy Advance Virtual Console!

theblackdragon

Remember, the Wii VC was eventually updated with new systems, and it was only announced this month that Game Gear and TurboGrafx-16 games would be hitting the Virtual Handheld. GBA games hitting the VH has neither been confirmed nor outright denied, so let's be patient and see how things pan out, shall we?

In the meantime, if you'd like to let Nintendo know how you feel directly, you're more than welcome to contact them. :3

Re: Lilt Line sales disappointing

@Token: Lilt Line isn't Gaijin, it's Different Cloth or something like that. i forget how Gaijin fits into the equation exactly (i think they helped port it to WiiWare), but they didn't originally develop Lilt Line nor are they the ones speaking in the article.

how's your internet connection? if the Wii running Nintendo Channel is the only thing going at one time, it'll be fast, but if someone else in your house is streaming Netflix at the same time or downloading something big off your connection, it may go slower.

Considering Nintendo reps were also saying that the DSi would have a Virtual Handheld, i'd trust what they have to say now about anything about as far as i could throw 'em. Without something official to back that up, this is rumor at best.

Re: Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund

theblackdragon

@Waltz: we already know the news media in general (and this includes in Japan, perhaps not so much in terms of this event but certainly in others they're as guilty as the rest of 'em) is sensationalist and exaggerates the hell out of stuff in order to boost ratings. i know you're upset, but please, could you tone it down with the ranting?

more on the topic of relief efforts and/or donations, the shop i'm apprenticing at is hosting an event for Tattooers for Japan — Japan's had a gigantic influence on the world of tattooing, and we owe them so much that this is the least we can do. participating shops will have a day or two next month where you go in, choose a set design off of a sheet of flash, pay your money (i've seen 'em saying like $50-$150-ish depending on the shop), and all proceeds made that day will go straight to charity. they're still working on choosing which charity will give the most to the people of Japan (some organizations will skim more than others y'know :/). anyway, i've been drawing up little flash designs for the past couple days, and my mentor's been running around trying to pull in some of the other downtown businesses to do something special that day along with us, and also to get some participating artists together and on the same page. it's gonna be a lot of fun :3
