  1. I'm sure lots of us have played the oh-so popular Nintendo crossover fighter, Super Smash Bros., in some way shape or form. And, I'd like to ask, if you have, which installment of the series is your favorite? My personal favorite is the newest release, Smash 4 for Wii U and 3DS. Which is your favorite (and if you say Super Smash Flash, I'll virtually smash you )
  2. So if you're like me, you primarily use your mobile device/ smart phone for it's web browsing functions, and not really as a cell phone. Checking emails, watching videos, checking in on social media feeds, and browsing forums like this one. So after watching a few tech videos, I learned that the 3DS and the PS Vita both support web browsers. So maybe instead of using a phone for web browsing, why not use a portable game console for that purpose. The gaming function would get more use than the cell phone function seems to, and the powerful hardware needed to run game graphics and functions should make browsing a breeze. Would you be open to using a 'Smart Game' as a go to mobile device?
  3. One of the originally defining features of the 3DS is, well, its 3D. Hence the name. The 3D feature was one that was very hit-and-miss when the system launched. Some games it looked awesome with, others it was pointless. For some people it caused headaches and eye strain, others it was fine. The 3D feature was also improved on the New 3DS as well. I have been thinking, how much do all of you use the 3D feature, if at all? If you do, how much do you use it? What games do you use it for? Me, I use it occasionally, for certain games like Ocrina of Time 3D and Dead or Alive Dimensions and sometimes Smash Bros. Hyrule Warriors Legends is one I would use it for, but even on the New 3DS where you actually can use the 3D for that game, it makes the game performance drop considerably when turned on so it is pointless. So what about all of you?
  4. One thing that can be awesome about game systems is personalization. Making a system more in tune to what we like. Games and whatnot. Since the PSP, game systems now having custom themes and they are pretty awesome, I love these types of themes. <3 Speaking of this, 3DS! The 3DS has some pretty awesome themes, with custom music and sounds, they are pretty cool. I just wish there were more. I recently bought some new themes and it makes me want to make this thread. Here it be! What are the themes that you have for 3DS? Any particular favorites? These are the ones that I own: Animal Crossing New Leaf Bulletin Board Animal Crossing Winter Frolics Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask Dire Moon Choa Theme Smash Bros. Theme 1 My personal favorites ares Winter Frolics and Choa Garden. :3
  5. I decided to do a review on the New Nintendo 3DS XL which came out in February. I've got it since the launch so here is my review. Now everyone was shocked when this was announced but I was okay because I felt like I needed to upgrade anyway since my original launch 3DS died the same month. The New 3DS XL is an upgrade to the Original 3DS XL but this version has new features including faster processing power, Amiibo Support, Face Tracking 3D, and Built in C Stick and ZL and ZR buttons. It's glossy but not completely glossy like the original 3DS. It feels really good because it's rounded and feels really comfortable to hold. And it also retains the button layout, dual screen, and touch screen. Unfortunately there is also a regular size version that's slightly smaller and more compact with interchangeable faceplates but that one is not available in America only in Japan, Europe, and Australia. If it only came out in Japan it would make more sense but if it came out in Europe and Australia too the smaller one should've come out in America too. But I don't think it's a huge loss because the XL is still pretty compact and not too much bigger. Some improvements include faster processing, which I mostly only saw for load times in games like Super Smash Bros. because load times are quicker. It also has Face Tracking 3D which means you will still see the 3D even when your eyes move around. However it's not perfect because sometimes when I move so fast it takes time for track your eyes but still an improvement. Also there is Amiibo support where you can use Amiibo figures in games like Super Smash Bros. and use them as characters. However it does have drawbacks. For one the system doesn't come with an AC Adaptor so anyone who has never owned any system from the DSi or 3DS lines has to buy one seperately. I certainly don't mind since I've owned 3 of the same AC Adaptors from those lines so it's only a big deal if you've never owned any of those systems. Another drawback is that it uses microSD instead of standard SD cards but here's the kicker you have to use a screwdriver to access it making using external storage impractical. So if you're going to use the Micro SD slot often, it can feel inconvenient. The graphics aren't the best. They are low res and graphics don't look as smooth as on other devices but the graphics still look very good. The New Nintendo 3DS XL has a ton of games available for it both physical and digital. There are games from iconic franchises like Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D, A Link Between Worlds, Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Star Fox 64 3D, Super Smash Bros for 3DS, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Tomodachi Life, Monster Hunter 4, etc. There is also the eShop which have cheaper downloadable games and apps. There's not as many apps as the iOS App Store but it's still very diverse. There are a bunch of games on there including classic Gameboy, Gameboy Color games, and NES games. One game from the eShop I play a lot is Pokémon Battle Trozei which is an addicting puzzle game and I use mostly that as my quick fix gaming. I just want to point that out because some people aren't aware the 3DS has an app store equivalent. There is also this app called Colors 3D which is a really good art program. The New 3DS XL will have a few games exclusive to it like Xenoblade Chronicles 3D which takes advantage of the faster processing power. Not to mention it's also backwards compatible with DS games giving you thousands of games to play on it. Pros: Massive Game Library Built in C Stick and ZL/ZR buttons Well Built Faster processing Very Comfortable to hold Good Handheld Graphics Stable 3D Amiibo Support DS Backwards Compatibility Cons Regular Size available everywhere but America Doesn't include AC Adapter You need a screwdriver to access the Mcro SD slot Not many New 3DS XL exclusive games out yet Overall The New 3DS XL is a great handheld. But if you already have a 3DS I wouldn't recommend it unless you want the faster processing, Amiibo supports, or exclusive games like Xenoblade. Xenoblade is the only exclusive game out now so I would wait for more exclusives to come out. But for those new to the 3DS line or those who really need to upgrade I highly recommend yo get this system. Score: 9/10
  6. Lately, (and by lately I mean the past couple of years or so) I have been feeling like Nintendo is starting to lose focus their in gaming. I have always loved Nintendo, but with many of their actions that they have taken over the years, I feel like they are falling down a very odd path. With the immediate abandoning of the Wii once the Wii U released, the odd decisions with the New 3DS, the apparent crusade against Youtuber's, and the announcement of making 'mobile' games and a new mysterious console, overall it feels like Nintendo has no major and concrete focus like other companies do now. They seem very scattered. They are trying to spread their division out yet their gaming division is feeling more unorganized. They still do have many great things and many great games have been released for the Wii U and 3DS, but because of this scattered nature, I feel like Nintendo is not as exciting as it once was. Their brand doesn't feel as cemented. This is not particularly making their games suffer at this point given how good 2014 was but it could down the line. Does anyone else feel this way? If so, what do you think about it? Maybe these new branching paths are a good thing in the long run, but I am just a bit concerned is all. I hope Nintendo is not biting off more than they can chew. Who knows, maybe I am wrong with all of this. Of course this is just my opinion but I would like your opinions as well.
  7. We may not be the "master race", but we all know that Nintendo is pretty awesome. This thread is devoted to the Big N and all of it's glory. If the discussion is about Nintendo, debates about which game series is best, timelines (looking at you Zelda), ideas for reboots, new dlcs, etc. it is welcome here. Is it just me or does Nintendo have a lot of series? Like seriously some of these need to come back instead of Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon...
  8. Bravely Default got a bit repetitive toward the middle but was still a good game, I like what I see for the sequel so far.
  9. Hey there! I just recently got this really fun game for the Nintendo 3DS called "Tomodachi Life" where your Miis all hang out on an island and hi-jinks ensue! I wanted to fill up my island a bit as well as share some Miis that I made/acquired, so I figured I'd set up a thread for sharing Tomodachi Life QR codes. Here is mii! (Get it? 'Mii' sounds like 'me', it's my mii, me! I crack myself up sometimes...) Let the sharing commence.
  10. So, I'm not sure how many of you know this, or even use the program..But Swapnote (known in other regions as Nintendo Letterbox) is a letter-type messaging program on the 3DS. You can use it to draw and write letters to people on your friends list and send pictures/recordings (since about April of this year, I think). It'd use the Spotpass/Internet option for sending (for instance to your friends overseas, or even friends here. Just over the internet, which allowed single friend messaging), and Streetpass ( which allows you to send a note to any of the people on your friends list that you happen to pass by). I found it highly enjoyable to use ('specially when I got my berrrfrend to use it). I could send silly pictures and comics to my friends. I made some letters in the morning yesterday, and quite a few hours later (after I got back from taking a bunch of kids trick or treating (it was awful, to say the least, and I just wanted to check for notes)) I went to see. I open the program, and it says something like "Swapnote has been discontinued for this program, blah blah blah". I was confused, and tried the Spotpass check. Didn't work, as the same message popped up. I phoned a buddy, who had the same thing happen, so I decided to look it up. " Notice about service for Nintendo 3DS software Swapnote2013-10-31 Thank you for your support. Nintendo has learned that some consumers, including minors, have been exchanging their friend codes on Internet bulletin boards and then using Swapnote (known as Nintendo Letter Box in other regions) to exchange offensive material. Nintendo has been investigating ways of preventing this and determined it is best to stop the SpotPass feature of Swapnote because it allows direct exchange of photos and was actively misused. Nintendo always wants to provide a positive experience for all consumers and limit the risk of any inappropriate activity or misuse of a service. We feel it is important on this occasion to take this action. We are very sorry for any inconvenience to the many consumers who have been using this service responsibly; however this decision was made considering the point that many minors also use this feature of Swapnote. Thank you for your understanding. Nintendo will continue to work to ensure more consumers are aware of our Parental Control features, which allow parents to manage their children’s experience on our systems. For more information, please click here. Service stop date: Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013, 7 p.m. PT Service being stopped: Nintendo 3DS software Swapnote – Sending and receiving notes using SpotPass Affected regions: All regions where the service was offered Special Notes services are also stopped" So, Nintendo just got rid of the software without ANY prior warning, because of people sending bad things to each other. I know that this is bad, and could possibly hurt Nintendo's reputation with parents a little.. But what about the people who responsibly used it? What about the people who actually used it for a form of communication? I read on a bulletin board that someone's sister moved to Japan, and they highly relied on it to talk to each other. It should of been expected that people would do this stuff, because people are people. I just find it unfair and uncalled for, and I think they should of taken a different approach/action on the situation. Maybe send an update with parental controls? Or maybe the parents could watch what there child does more or something? I don't know. I'm not blaming the parents, or anyone really, but I'm just an eensy bit annoyed.;jsessionid=5846E57D48B7161F164109D07DBFC7C8
  11. So, I am going to be getting a Nintendo 3DSXL soonish and am wondering what games I should get? I am already going to get the Profressor Leighton games and the new Luigi's Mansion game, but what other ones should I get? (note I like the ones like Brainetics, that make you think etc)
  12. So, as the topic title indicates, A Link To The Past is getting a sequel! So we're getting a Wind Waker remake AND A Link To The Past sequel. Pretty radical. The best kind of radical, in fact. That being said, I'm still highly looking forward to Pikmin 3 and Elder Scrolls: Online.
  13. In yet another example of how copyright and trademark laws desperately need to be changed some greedy butthurt bastard decided to jam up the courts and sue Nintendo over the 3DS because there are some small similarities between that and some of his ideas. It looks like the lawsuit won't go anywhere but the fact that such stupid and pointless lawsuits go on really bother me.
  14. Just got this game and I'm pretty far! I love all the combinations (Or words) you can come up with to help your character. This is just a thread on the game: Anything funny? Hard part? Starrite Discussion? Enjoy
  15. Here's a little something I whipped up. A dynamic countdown timer to Nintendo's E3 2012 press conference, where we will (among other things) get a proper showing of the Wii U! As you are (hopefully) aware, I run the world's oldest Wii U blog, Wii U Go. This countdown timer is a fun little extra I made for the site, but it would be really cool to see it spread around MLP Forums, not to mention any other sites as well. So feel free to share it with anyone you know who is looking forward to Nintendo's conference! You can find copypasta-ready embed codes right here.
  16. Nintendo has announced that later this year the 3DS will be able to support paid DLC for games, and it isn't hard to believe that 3rd Party companies will eat that up and spit back out content of varying quality. Certain companies *cough* CAPCOM *cough* will probably rip us off, and others might give us great deals. What if Nintendo were to create DLC for their games? Do you think they could put anything good on the market that you'd be willing to buy? Basically, what kinds of DLC do you think will become available for the games we currently know are coming up on the market? Will this content be a marketing nightmare as most DLC is? Or can Nintendo weed out the best of the best for everyone?
  17. I've noticed that there's a large number of Ponies that come from the 3DS forums and share their 3DS Friend Codes which makes me feel a little left out. I've said in the past that the only way I'll buy a 3DS is if a) there's a large library of games I actually want they put on that second analog stick pad that's "SO important" c) they make a new model with longer battery life (i've heard bad stories of 3DS batteries) d) if I had people to play with (no one I know in person wants to give the 3DS the time of day) Now I'm one to often be too critical (understatement) but would the Ponies here say that they're satisfied with the 3DS. I'm still most likely will hold out for that longer battery life (and I need more money of course). Do you think it's worth buying? What games and features would you say is the best of the 3DS? I would like to play Star Fox 64 3D haha
