tripunktoj commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

They should release all the classic MK characters that are missing in this game (Diddy Kong, Birdo, Funky Kong, King Boo, Dry Bones, DK Jr.) or some actually new and creative characters (not just different 8 colors, 3 disguises or ages for the same old characters) from the Mario universe (Pauline, Wart, Nabbit, E.Gadd, Piantisimo, C. Syrup) before bringing characters from completely unrelated series



tripunktoj commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

So... Sakurai didnt like Chrom because it would play very similar to the other Fire Emblem characters, but instead he decides to bring Lucina who is almost identical to Marth in looks and moves, yea that totally makes sense.



tripunktoj commented on NES Remix Titles Coming in Physical Version to...:

For download only games published by Nintendo, I always wait for them to be a club.nintendo reward. But hoping we'd get a retail version as Japan, I held off form getting NES Remix as my platinum reward, and now Im glad I did and went instead with Dr. Luigi for the platinum reward.



tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Mii, Myself and I - The Argumen...:

I admit I love the idea to play as some of my 200+ Miis. Not the best use for a playable character spot in Smash Bros, but its much better than stuffing the roster with random pokémon ... cough Greninja, Lucario cough Charizard cough cough!



tripunktoj commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

Alejandro here, I had a great time racing and surprisingly right now Im in the top 3 (I had at least 3 horrible races because of my own fault and another more with no luck with the items). The last 5 or so races with more CPUs than humans sure helped me but it was hard anyway, whoever got 450+ deserves that 1st spot.



tripunktoj commented on Guide: Getting Started in Mario Kart 8:

In Mario Kart 7 its easier to get 3 stars cups if you start with 150cc, since you have no unlockables and the CPU cant use them either, so I think it'd work the same way here... But if you like your MK though, itd be OK to start with 50cc.



tripunktoj commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

MK8 character roster desperately needs DLC (top DLC priority), this is the worst MK roster ever with koopalings occupying 7 slots and babies 5 (some of which dont even exist out of Mario Kart) and dont get me started with gamings worst random idea pink gold peach... its the most lazy and unoriginal way of filling a roster. Especially with some classic characters left out and TONS of Mario character that would fit great as new racers. More tracks would be awesome, Id like to finally see GBA Cheese Land as a Retro track. Battle arenas is also a must for MK. Challenges in the DS format would also be nice, but not a priority.



tripunktoj commented on Patch Fixes Bug in Donkey Kong Country: Tropic...:

Mine wont update, didn't show up on Download Management screen and it lauches the game without updating. Theres no update file for it in the system memory and the start screen isn't displaying "Ver 1.1" ... maybe its a regional patch.



tripunktoj commented on Star Parodier Removed From the Wii Virtual Con...:

Its sad, but this was completely expected. Im glad I picked up all of the Wii Shop games I wanted back when the Wii U was launched (including Star Parodier), the only delisted game I missed and really wanted was "The magic obelisk"



tripunktoj commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

I have always preferred to play every game in its original console, so Virtual Console has never captivated me, I only download this games if they are for consoles I don't own (mostly imports and non-Nintendo) have enough interesting new features (online, content, portability) or are free, extremely cheap, or a promo (DKOE). But its a nice service for those without the original consoles and even for me, since I get to know many games I didn't know, or remember me to play others.

The Wii U Virtual Console games have much more pale colors than the original games or even their Wii and 3DS Virtual Console versions, you cant change the ratio or resolution to fit (up & down) or fill (completely full screen), most of them are extremely overpriced and even if you own the game for Virtual Console on other Nintendo system you have to pay again for the same game. Id prefer if we had the option to play Wii U without turning on the Game Pad, I like the upscaled graphics

In short theres no reason to buy Virtual Console games on Wii U, Miiverse is also available on 3DS and you can get upscaling and customizable controls without all the Wii Us disadvantages, legally (provided you bought another iteration of the game before) running a ROM in an emulator. Nintendo 3DS is a much better fit for Virtual Console games, unlike the Wii U Game Pad you can actually take the system out of the room and play, you can also use Miiverse, it also has Virtual Console menu/functions, and doesn't letterbox the image or washdown the colors.



tripunktoj commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

Team up Pac-Man with Ms. Pac-Man, or the ghosts ala Captain Olimar & Pikmin. Or give him the moves used in his most recent outings, its not that hard to give him a decent move set and gameplay mechanics if they'd really wanted to include him.



tripunktoj commented on Mario Kart 8 Racing Wheel Available For Preord...:

I could barely control the Wii game with this method, its horrible IMO, and for collectible purposes Id only get one if it were black to match all of my Wii U accessories (I even imported a black balance board cover for the same reason)



tripunktoj commented on Bowser's Koopalings Join the Cast of Mario Kar...:

They add a little of variety and are a nice idea for new characters, but there are too many of them occupy too much character slots. It would have been better to have them all in the clown car, using only 1 character slot. There are much more new and varied characters Id like to see like a Pianta, Wart, Captain Syrup, Mona, Prof E. Gadd, Nabbit, Pauline, more Kongs or Kremlings and the return of DK Jr.



tripunktoj commented on Month Of Kong: Meet Donkey Kong's Extended Family:

What about the evil Kongs in Jungle Beat, DK Jr, Baby DK and his toy versions?

Also I hope at least 3 of the Kongs and King K. Rool (or even a kremling) make it to Smash Bros, instead of continuing the current trend to saturate the game with Mario characters and random pokémon.



tripunktoj commented on Guide: Using Nintendo Network ID On Your 3DS:

@Sherman Maybe you are mistaking deleting the ID (erasing ID forever, losing rights to downloadable, but keeping all data) with formatting the console (unlinking ID, but not erasing it, only losing all save data). Anyway, it could be me who is wrong or misunderstanding something. In transfers between 3DSs you merge all of the games bought from the 2 consoles and can only access it from the target 3DS, and if there is a NNID on the source 3DS its also transfered (you can also transfer if none 3DS has an ID, but you cant do the transfer if the target 3DS has a linked ID) but when transferring from DSi you can chose which games you want to transfer.



tripunktoj commented on Lucario The Aura Warrior Returns To Battle In ...:

Today is a sad day for Smash Bros. We started to waste the few spaces (some say less than Brawl or 40-something in the best scenario) with irrelevant pokemon. I barely began to deal with the news of Rosalina (almost equal to Peach in looks) saturating Smash with more Mario characters, and now this. I wasnt this disappointed and sad in this regard since I saw that FOUR of the ~10 unlockables in Melee were Pokémon and other 2 completely unknown guys (at the time).

Don't get me wrong, I love Pokemon, but they are so numerous (hundreds of them more powerful and popular than Lucario) that it would be fairer if they stay as items with the pokeballs, having many Pokémon but without occupying almost 10/36 character slots (Brawl) leaving only Pikachu and a Trainer as characters.

We need variety, veterans are missing (Captain Falcon, Yoshi, Ness, Ganon, Wario, Ike, Wolf, Meta-Knight, Lucas, Falco) there are plenty of original newcomers (Kongs, King K. Rool, Mona or Captain Syrup, Little Mac, Takamaru, Mach Rider, Tamagon, Bubbles, Sukapon, Impa, Sylux, Ridley, Palutena, Magnus, Paula, Starman, Chrom, Samurai Goroh, Krystal, Adeline, Custom Robo, Isaac, Starfy, Isa Jo, Chibi-Robo, Layton, Mii, Shulk, WiiWare or eShop characters and of course Non-Specific Action Figure) just 1 or 2 more 3rd party (Pac-Man, Prince of Persia, Bomberman, Snake, Rayman, Ryu H, Bub & Bob, Terry Bogard, Joe & Mac) continue with ROB idea, hardware as characters (Balance Board, Virtual Boy, 3DS)

... But no... out of all possibilities... they had to come out with a random Pokémon.

It looks like since the last few characters, they are being chosen by a child who barely plays or knows anything besides Mario and Pokémon, So whats next? Daisy? Koopa Troopa? Waluigi? OH, I know, more Pokémon!



tripunktoj commented on Guide: Using Nintendo Network ID On Your 3DS:

@Sherman As far as I know, if your sister deletes her account, she will lose all of the games bought in that console up to that point permanently. Yes, games before the linking NNID-eShop will be "sucked" by the NNID.

Now that I think of it, I guess that method could work to override the country lock, but yes itd deleted ALL data (activity log, play coins, streetpass, friend code, friend list, downloaded apps, videos and games with their respective save data, even SpotPass, Street Pass and Extra Data for physical 3DS game cards). And it wouldn't work with free stuff, since you need an ID to download, and your other ID can only "suck" content that is downloaded without a NNID.

Right now your only hope of getting 4 swords without a NNID would be transferring it from a DSi or 3DS (without NNID) that already got it last year (this time its only available in the eShop, I checked and its not in the DSi Shop)



tripunktoj commented on Guide: Using Nintendo Network ID On Your 3DS:


Yes I was only talking about eShop exclusive games, because I never buy retail games in digital format unless they give some exclusive stuff or massive (like 75% off) discount, but you are right those games are almost twice as expensive as USA.

As for the eShop cards, that's why I always buy eShop credit directly through the eShop with credit card, also I rarely see eShop cards and they often cost more than the eShop credit they give.

Yes, NNID thing Is a real trouble for people moving or traveling constantly.

You cant use Miiverse (and eShop also) if the region of the NNID doesn't match with the region on system settings, but once started you can interact with people regardless of their region. Once you start using Miiverse you can chose to display posts in your currently set language or all posts and you can change this setting whenever you want as many times as you want (again, regardless of regions).

Yes, you can unlink the ID from the hardware itself, but not from your eShop account (from the point you add a NNID, they are now one, and the same thing). You can format the console, but you will also lose ALL of your data, and you will also lose access to ALL of your eShop downloads (even those bought before linking the NNID) until you link the same NNID again. Deleting the NNID will also unlink it, but you will also lose access to ALL of your eShop downloads PERMANENTLY (even those bought before linking the NNID) since the eShop account is also deleted along with the NNID. Lastly, you can use a System transfer (which has no limits of use now) to transfer ALL of your data, purchases and ID to a new 3DS, but now your purchases will only be accessible in the new console and the old one is completely formnated without access to any of your downloads.



tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (North America):

I couldn't vote for the only thing Ill download this week Zelda Four Swords IS BACK. I got it the 1st time around, but now Ill be able to get it in my 2DS and 3DS (I transferred my account to XL, and my 3DS was missing four swords... until now)



tripunktoj commented on Feature: 10 Nintendo DS Games We Want To See O...:

Those are great games (except for GTA), specially Pokémon, Spirit Tracks and Mario Kart but there are too much RPGs in the list and many games I also liked from DS missed this list, Metroid Prime Hunters, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2, Princess Peach, Star Fox, Kirby Canvas Curse, Picross 3D, Professor Layton, Contra 4, Henry Hatsworth, Sonic Colors just to name a few of them



tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Confirms Dedicated Development Team f...:

Its been a long tiem since they confirmed Miiverse and eShop on smart devices at some point in the future, but as I undetrstand it now they will maybe move things like Pokédex 3D, Nintendo Video, Pokémon Global Link, Nintendo TVii and maybe even a revived Swapnote to smart devices, while coming up with some new apps that could add to the game experience (like an app with access to exclusive Mystery gifts for Pokémon X & Y or special gold Miis for StreetPass Plaza)

I anticipated something like this account system when Iwata talked about a change in the business structure, I hope we also get some kind of reward or compensation for people who bought games twice or more (same Wii, WiiU and 3DS VC game)



tripunktoj commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

After seeing the video in the page linked the quick-start feature seems pointless to me and not that quick, it only skips the very brief moment it takes to completely load Wara-Wara plaza and your games and apps in the Home menu.

As for DS in virtual console, Id rather play those games on their actual console, but I know there were some people looking forward to it and Im glad for them. By the way, I assume you can also play with both screens, right?
