tripunktoj commented on Review: Funfair Party Games (3DS eShop):
@Joindots Hi! I really like carnival minigames, at $5 I would've been a day one download for me and would eventually buy it at $10, but not more that's it. If I were you Id left out the motion controls, which aren't very suited to 3DS's 3d effect and console shape, and put out a $7 product that people would actually buy.
tripunktoj commented on Guide: Using Nintendo Network ID On Your 3DS:
@eza Thanks for the info, Im glad to see some people are as interested in this topic as me. I've read all of your posts on that article, and Im sad it appears Nintendo is country-locking us. Im in Mexico (which is the region of my NNID) the eShop here rarely misses games and they are usually a little cheaper (because of currency exchange rates), but Im still not happy missing the chance to buy (or maybe redownload) a few games. And most important, in the online games I don't like to be ranked, displayed or earning points for a country which Ive no bonds with.
@PenCapChew Bill Trinen said something about being able to get paid downloads without logging in, so maybe it'd still be possible to change regions and download content from other country's eShop. I hope Damo and NL know more about this.
tripunktoj commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:
Super Mario 3D World's video was by far the best part of this Nintendo Direct!
tripunktoj commented on StreetPass Relay Point Improvements and Free S...:
They only said the 3D land box is rare, so it is not necesarily exclusive or special.
@Damo: Great idea for a guide, Ive 3 questions for updating this guide.
1. Can I register the same ID to multiple systems?
(Like 2DS, 3DS and 3DSXL at the same time and/or one ID in 2 WiiUs at a time)
2. Can we register an ID set to a different country than the console?
(so that I can still access content unavailable on the country of the ID)
3. Are (will) we able to change the region of the ID itself?
tripunktoj commented on Review: Toki Tori (Wii U eShop):
I felt it really needs Wii remote controls (or at least turning off gamepad display)
tripunktoj commented on DuckTales: Remastered Hits Retail Shelves in N...:
Im still upset they didn't announced it before I bought the eshop version, I'll only get it if I find a REALLY good deal on the special Wii U edition that comes with the pin.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Details for Mario...:
Of course I want the bundle, real question is if itll arrive stores near where I live.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Direct Broadcast Confirmed for 13th N...:
I keep expectations in check so any Smash character reveal and Kirby 3DS will do
tripunktoj commented on Review: Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop):
@unrandomsam Didn't notice, I only played a few games before ragequiting, to never play tennis online again. Instead I used my 24 hour trial in something actually enjoyable like training and local tennis or bowling.
When playing with people on slow connections it lags horribly and its impossible to play tennis (I think it will be the same for baseball and boxing), its really frustrating to see your rank and stats sink with out your fault. Its not worth a digital download of $10 (for only part of the game), maybe if they release a retail disc Ill consider this again. Also, Motion Plus broke the game, had to reset the position (D-pad down) every couple minutes and recalibrate every 5 (tried 5 different remotes on 2 WiiUs)
tripunktoj commented on Pokémon Art Director Would Like to Simplify t...:
I agree, since Diamond and Pearl, I feel they have been adding more things that a person with more things to do in his life can focus on (even if those things are only more games) natures, abilities, moves, items, evolutions/forms and tons of extras (limited time downloads, pokewalker, dreamworld, dream radar, super-training, etc) The best generation ever is G&S the amount of content was just right, R&S lost the chance without backward compatibility, night/day, weekly cycles and Stadium.
tripunktoj commented on Review: Wii Fit U (Wii U):
I really liked being able to see other people in my gym on screen, their stats, costumes, what they do, etc. Granted, it could be better, but its not that limited.
tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Regional Online Multiplayer Mis...:
Maybe it is tied to eShop regions for easy management of Daily Passes.
tripunktoj commented on Packaged Physical Release of Wii Sports Club M...:
Please do it! I am glad to see them talk about the possibility of a physical version BEFORE they release the digital version (unlike Ducktales Remastered and eShop Cave Story), instead of doing it once I have bought the digital version thinking there will be no retail option. I will only use the free 24 hour trail of each Sport on the digital version while I wait to hear more about (or buy) a retail one. When given the option I always go for the physical version, unless theres an extra Im really interested in or give for free the digital one and its not a big franchise. My only retail downloads so far are Crossword Plus (for the Donkey Kong Original Edition promo), Art Academy 3DS (Got it free registering XL and Luigi's Mansion on Club Nintendo), and Im thinking if I will stick to the digital Wii Fit U or not (Free, since I am getting a black standalone meter, regardless of getting the retail pack or not)
tripunktoj commented on Satoru Iwata Outlines Wii U Holiday Target Aud...:
Ive always said I prefer failing because I did things my way than having success by following the crowd with no reason. And Im glad to see Nintendo do the same.
tripunktoj commented on APEXICON - Fantasy Puzzle Combat Campaign Adds...:
Very short and lacking information for a pitch video.

"You don't stop playing because you get old... But you could get old if you stop playing"I loved that!

Its OK, you don't have to include something just because you can, specially if that is going to change the experience intended.
tripunktoj commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:
Outside of the gaming media there's NO marketing for it in Latin America (and inside it its few and/or biased), NOA has executives dedicated to that area (like Bill Van Zyll), but it seems they are there just to fill the gap or sit there and look nice.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Updates Available Club Nintendo Rewar...:
I prefer my SNES Zelda on SNES (Id think about it if it were a WiiU VC reward) already have Metroid (3DS Ambassador), Dillon (In April, to get its special note in Swapnote) and Cubello on Wii (Day 1 download), but since latest WiiU system update, Im getting WiiWare rewards for my WiiU... so Cubello for me this time.
tripunktoj commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS Games To Play This ...:
I went with Dragon's Lair Trilogy (Wii) and Classic NES Series Castlevania (GBA)

Not the best downloadable games, but there are definetly worst games out there.

Even the developers name sounds a lot like DKC's current dev, Retro Studios.
tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:
As I said earlier, Its OK disabling Swapnote SpotPass between users for the family friendly thing and kids' safety... but why stopping special notes and stationery??
tripunktoj commented on The Wii Mini Will Arrive in the U.S. in November:
It was about time, it released a couple months ago in Mexico, only US was missing.
tripunktoj commented on Rumour: Hacker Unlocks Three New Legendary Pok...:
I hope they are fake, the only one I liked is Diance itself, and Volcanion's types.
tripunktoj commented on Review: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympi...:
@GazPlant Are you given the option to chose a country or a region independent option (Global, Worldwide, Other, etc like Wii Sports Club does) for the online games and leaderboards, or is it locked to your NNID or real location?
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Download: 31st October (North America):
"available at retail in various colours from the same date as this download" I don't think we are getting various colors (at least in America) the only ones Ive seen are all black (standalone), and a white one advertised in the retail game box images.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:
OK, granted, kids' safety is first... but why stopping special notes and stationery?
tripunktoj commented on Male Wii Fit Trainer Revealed as Latest Smash ...:
A little off-topic, that same Miiverse post says Wii Fit U is available now... maybe he means in Japan, I checked and its still dated for 11/1 on the American eShop.
I don't mind model swaps like C. Falcon and Ganondorf, the Fire Emblem characters on Melee or even the Star Fox characters in Brawl, they have very different looks, personalities and background, but this is not the case for the Wii trainers and Id be very upset if they left out another character because of him. However if this is another skin of the same character it'd be a great idea if implemented on more characters, Id love the return of Dr. Mario.
tripunktoj commented on Feature: Where Is Your Wii Balance Board?:
I actually tried Wii Street U a couple minutes with it weeks ago, its on its original box, right next to my gaming setup along with my NES Power Pad, but its not ready for Wii Fit U. Of the dozen of rechargeable batteries I bought back in 2007 when my Wii was young, only 2 remain usable, and my OCD demands a black plastic cover to go with my Deluxe Wii U (since there are no black boards in America afaik)
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Confirms The Legend of Zelda: A Link ...:
I don't have enough money to buy post-launch special edition systems and my OCD wont allow me to play games other than Zelda on that, but I'd be all over that special edition game with the chest if it came to America.
tripunktoj commented on Nicalis Quizzes Fans Over Potential For a Phys...:
No, its paying again for the same game, and it annoys me that I wasn't given the option since launch as an early adopter (Im looking at you Ducktales Remastered)
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at the Golden Joystick...:
GTAV GoTY, Best Handheld AC, Smooth Mc Groove lost... Oh, the humanity!
tripunktoj commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:
It can be an explicit and "official reveal" of the stage, but we already knew it, It was largely featured in Sonic's reveal video, the name was the only thing missing.
tripunktoj commented on Video: This Stop Motion Mega Man Video is a Bi...:
I expected 8-Bit Mega Man music (Im looking at you Bubble Man), but nice vid.
tripunktoj commented on Pokémon Developers: Paid DLC Could "Ruin The ...:
"If we ever get the idea of, “This could be fun if we could sell it for real-life money,” or something similar during the planning of a future game, then perhaps we could sell them for 100 yen."
I don't think paying for anything (in any form) can make it more fun.
tripunktoj commented on Reboot Of Gross 16-bit Platformer Boogerman Co...:
I broke down in tears when I read Grant Kirkhope and Boogerman in the same article.
tripunktoj commented on Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter...:
I hope we are given the option to earn points for a region independent community (Global, Worldwide, Other, etc), like Wii Sports Club does. Most people like their country and its OK, but I don't have special bonds with any country in particular.
tripunktoj commented on New Sonic Lost World Trailer Reveals A Slight ...:
I don't care as long as the Deadly Six Edition is made widely available, also by the looks of the video it appears 3DS wont be getting this Special Edition.
tripunktoj commented on Reaction: Nintendo Reminds Us of the Wii's Glo...:
@ThomasBW84 Has there been more information about the colors available for balance boards and fit meters (so that it matches my WiiU) or about a physical version of Wii Sports Club, at 19:10 of the last Nintendo Direct video it reads "downloadable version" but its the only lead/hope I've for retail release.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Direct: Check Out the Wii Fit U Direc...:
@JaxonH Its a six-axis motion sensor which includes 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope. But yea, as I said, I could be wrong on not needing pressure.
tripunktoj commented on Nintendo's Former President, Hiroshi Yamauchi,...:
This man shaped the videogames as we know them. Thanks Mr. Yamauchi, R.I.P.
@JaxonH Im no expert in technology or measurements, but I think the six-axis motion sensor and maybe region information from the console takes care of that, I could be wrong but I still don't see the need for a pressure sensor.
@JaxonH Are you assuming it measures any of the data with a pressure sensor (cause I think all of the relevant data can be measured by the components I listed)? or did they explicitly talked about it (if so, I completely missed it, my bad)?
tripunktoj commented on Wii Sports Club Takes The Competition Online W...:
At 19:10 of today's Nintendo Direct it reads "downloadable version" when they announce this game's release date, but its the only lead/hope I've for retail release on the video (which could be a mistake). Any other info about a retail release NL?
