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.

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:

@Sherman

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.

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)

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?

tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I don't see any benefit in completely dropping Game Pad support (its already there, take advantage of it) but I agree they should also focus on other Wii U features. Oh, and also make it possible to completely turn off the gamepad in the Home menu and games where you can play without ever using the Game Pad.

Well, at least you in Europe and Japan got this promotion, while America gets nothing. But I agree Sega and M2 would do it much better and it shouldn't be that difficult to implement the print option as Miiverse stamps, which is a great idea.

tripunktoj commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

As I said the last time, Im not a fan of downloading (instead of buying at retail) new entries in classic Nintendo series, and Id rather wait a year or so to get it free as a club.nintendo reward if I were interested in one.

For me, the best of the list is Earthbound. I don't really like the Wars series, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility of getting a new game if it were a REALLY well done game, which happened to me with Fire Emblem for 3DS.

I have never played Saturn and Dreamcast games (except Sonic games) so Id be really interested in those systems for VC... N64, GBA and NGC? No thanks, I have the real consoles to play those games as it was intended.

Oh, I almost forgot, but I hope Pokken Fighters is the codename for a proper Pokémon Stadium 3, compatible with X & Y and ideally with every other DS game.

tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: An Unplanned Flash Sale Looked ...:

From my personal view as customer I don't care, I always prefer a physical option when there is one, the only exception would be the ones I got completely free (Wii Fit U-eShop promo, Art Academy Lessons for Everyone-club.nintendo) or if there is an exclusive Im interested in for getting it via download (Donkey Kong Original Edition for getting digital Crosswords Plus).

From a business perspective, I guess its OK in the right amount at the right times.

tripunktoj commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for January:

I don't like redownloading or moving back and forth to system memory DSiWare games, so I already chose and bought the best ones that can fit at a time, no more DSiWare for me. The only Wii VC game Im I waiting as a reward is Sin and Punishment (there are more, but they aren't on VC yet and I doubt will ever be). Id only get Wii U VC F-Zero to play it on the gamepad, but I already got it for 30 cents, which is better than 200 coins (four $60 retail games registered)

Long story short, nothing for me this month, looking forward to the next month

Itd be better if we got a Special Edition with the CD included at retailer or at least as part of a 3DS console bundle, otherwise we people living in regions without club.nintendo will miss yet another soundtrack, cough Majora's Mask cough. There is always eBay, but we are not getting it free and risk to getting it lost in the mail.

tripunktoj commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

I am unsure, maybe even reluctant, to see download-only entries on old classic Nintendo series, that's the main reason I voted "maybe" on great ideas like F-Zero UX, Super Mario Galaxy HD Collection, Rosalina's Observatory, StarFox: Battle for Corneria and Paper Mario: Origami (and the reason why it was easy for me to pick Metroid Prime IV as the best, if they were all full retail releases Id have trouble picking between F-Zero UX and StarFox: Battle for Corneria). Even if they were relatively new Nintendo series like SNES Remix, Id prefer to wait a little over a year and get it for free as a club.nintendo reward, or if Im lucky get a retail release of the game (Im looking at you Wii Sports Club). The only big and definitive No, was Animal Crossing: City Life, I just don't like feeling obliged to play daily or at determined times, and the practical impossibility to complete 100% a game.

tripunktoj commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December (North America):

@rjejr @TreesenHauser @Samurairu Same here, tried launching Wii Sports Club both days around 1PM EST and it wouldn't let me play, I also went to eShop to see if the passes were free for those days without luck. It was disappointing for me too, but considering last week's outage and this was only announced in an obscure business wire, I cant say this was unexpected for me. IMO it would be worst if they ran the promo and it was affected by the couple hours outage earlier today.

tripunktoj commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

I don't think NSLU should qualify as an eShop only game, unlike Ducktales, we all knew NSLU would be released in both formats (retail and eShop). Wind Waker was also released first on eShop in some regions and it didn't qualify for eShop section. Even ignoring what I said, its high quality add-on content, but not a full new game.

@DarkwingLz I haven't seen anything regarding a delay in the Wii Sports Club promotion, maybe you mean the delay of Pokémon Bank.

@Jllanos22 As I understand it from the business wire wording, with this promotion they will let you use the available sports 48 hours for free (All 24 hours of both Dec 31 and Jan 1), but they wont give all the sports for free to use whenever you want.

Im surprised its taking this long to get it fixed but it doesn't really bothers me, what worries me is if Nintendo uses this as an excuse to make the Nintendo Network a paid service in the near future, Id better stop using it if I had to pay for it.
