  1. Seems the delivery times have increased to 2-3 weeks which is a bummer, not as bad as the Super NT at least. Going to order a white one next month, hopefully by then the custom firmware will have been released. Has anyone bought a white one? as the only pictures/videos I have seen are of the black models.
  2. Happy about Outcast and Battlefront 2 as Ive been close to buying them both. Not really interested in the other 2.
  3. Its been over 2 months since I ordered mine and still no shipping notification, this wait is unbearable lol
  4. Really frustrating but not-surprising. Will be interesting to see what effect this will have on the flashcard market, everdrives are stupidly expensive at the moment because of how easy it was to download roms, now most of the reputable roms sites are gone will demand for flashdrives gone down? Also I can see prices for SD cards filled with roms on ebay skyrocketing.
  5. Paid £60 last week for a complete US copy of mega man x on the SNES. Probably the most I've spent on a retro game.
  6. 1. Ocarina of Time 2. Goldeneye 3. Super Mario 64 4. Conkers bad fur day 5. Starfox 64 The N64 didn't have an extensive library but the games Nintendo and rare did release were all pretty amazing and still hold up well today, much more so than the games on the playstation and Saturn the majority of which have aged badly.
  7. Think I might do the same, I had my doubts when this was first announced but it looks like they have really nailed it with this one, can't wait.
  8. To be fair a small popcorn in America is still pretty big. Doesn't really sound like a good deal when cinema tickets cost about 20 bucks over there.
  9. Yeah its a great little game, played it to completion 3 times. I preferred it over the console versions as well. Shinobi is another little gem that got mostly ignored as well. Can pick it up new for £5 so theres not much excuse not to try it
  10. 3DS support is still much poorer than the original DS. Western devs make their handheld games for mobile phones instead and half the stuff that the Japanese devs make never leaves Japan. Even though the 3DS is selling really well and there is money to be made on the system (Gunman Clive for example made more money on the eShop than the App Store and google play combined) publishers simply cant be bothered. History is repeating with the Wii U but this time Japanese dev support is even worse than the west.
  11. EA is in a right mess as a whole, Im sure once theyve restructured and the Wii U sales have improved theyll be back on board.
  12. Its an awesome game, better than marvel vs capcom 3 imo
  13. Thought it was great until the ending which was a complete cop out.
  14. Plus we are getting an extra colour (silver), a new wii game and that Pokemon typing game. NoE seem to be really on the ball over the last couple of years. Shame that there was still no mention of monster hunter coming over here or any of the other Japanese RPGs like bravely default, etrian odyssey 4 or Project x zone.
  15. Interesting music video starring LaBeouf, most definitely not safe for work. [media=]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=scctp8-xYX4 One of the best tracks from Sigur Ros' new album and something you'd never expect to see someone like LaBeouf in. Also probably the best thing that he has done to date as well.

  17. No? Other than Monster Hunter there have hardly been any big new games announce for the 3DS from 3rd parties, before the 3DS launched there was a lot of buzz, now its almost nothing. Vita on the other hand is getting new titles announced for it almost on a weekly basis and publishers seem more hyped for that system than Nintendos. Maybe once its released the interest will ware off like it has with the 3DS but when you look at the games Sony are getting its pretty obvious that Vita has the advantage in terms of 3rd party support.
  18. First of all, although what you said is true, the average person isn't going to give a toss about what it costs the publishers to make the game on a cartridge or about the retailers cut etc, they want to buy the game for as cheaply as possible and of course they are going to compare prices. Also I was talking more about the quality of the games with Ubisoft being an example with them making quick shoddy ports of iOS games. The fact is the 3DS games have a mark up over DS games just because they are in 3D. All of Nintendo's previous handheld games have had an RRP of about £30 whereas this time its £40. Now that could be down to retailer greed rather than Nintendo themselves and although it has gotten much better (GAME are now charging £35 instead of £40 for new releases) it doesn't really matter as the damage has been done and its one of the reasons why the launch was so poor. As for it not being profitable to release games at £20, sorry but thats bullshit, there are already a couple of 3DS games that are being released for under that now and also the budget for a handheld title is much much lower than console title, yet at the moment they are being sold at roughly the same price. So its more than possible but it won't happen. Personally I don't have a problem paying full price for a game if its something I really want, same as I don't mind paying to see a 3D movie but for a lot of people they do not want to pay the extra premium.
  19. Thats kind of true, 2D showings of films usually sell more than the 3D versions and films that are 3D only (Like Shark Night 3D and Fright Night) tend to not do very well. However the reason why people don't want to watch 3D films is not because they don't like the 3D effect but its because of the extra price. People just don't want to pay the extra premium for the extra dimension, if 3D ticket sales were the same as normal then 3D would really take off. With 3D TVs it mostly the lack of content and having to spend £100 extra for a pair of glasses. Nintendo like hollywood have been stung by simply being too greedy, the 3DS was way too overpriced to begin with and the games for the system have been pretty poor all round, with companies like Ubisoft charging £40 for games that cost £4 on iOS devices which actually look worse than the iOS versions. If Nintendo had released the 3DS for the price it is now and sold the games for £20 each then the thing would be flying off of shelves. Biggest problem Nintendo has though is third party support with nearly everyone shifting their support to Vita instead of the 3DS, they need to stop worrying about pleasing 3rd parties and just make as many great games as possible.
  20. You kidding? PSN is imo better than Live, the interface is far easier to navigate and its far better value for money (PS+) than a 360 gold subscription. The region locking of DLC is a pain in the arse but its not too hard to get around and at least all PS3 titles are region free in the first place.
  21. Yeah just tried it and it is the Japanese version and not the US one, hopefully they will get it sorted out soon as thats one I was really looking forward to.
  22. Erm you do know its the US version don't you?
  23. Had a quick go today but I don't think I had my move controller calibrated properly so it wasn't as fun as it should have been. Will try again once I can put down fifa.
