... ones with parents who were put off by 3D ruining a child’s eyes or something.
As a parent of multiple younguns, none gives a country crap about 3D. Some kid somewhere probably does, but not mine. I turn it on for them and they turn it off. :o

I've beaten OoT and Wind Waker a few times, Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask a couple times, and LttP... several. I've never "completed" one, though.

Never finished Skyward Sword even once, though.

Ranked? I gotta be level 10? I just don't have the patience for this game.

Still not convinced it's worth $60.

What are they running this on an eMachine?

Not to mention it's *click-click-click-click* to order anything. Amazon's been doing one-click for how long now? Every one of these clicks increases my chance of the site vomiting all over itself. OMG #2015problems

Cranky Kong

"Because older gamers need a fighter they can relate to. A character that knows what real gameplay is all about. The way it used to be. When men were men and games didn't hold your hand like your mama when you need your nose wiped. He is the hero of our generation."

Man, I don't even know what all this NX stuff is. But I do know that 'partnering' with a third party is bad juju for users. I got a bad feeling about that one.

Really, all I want is for the GameBoy to make a triumphant return as a handheld VC that runs *emulation* for GB/C, GBA, NES, SNES, N64, and GCN. And don't even stop people from running ROMs not bought from the whatever version of an online store they'll have. No porting, just offloading a game straight from the source. How many great games will never be (re)released now because they have to be ported? Much too many.

A thing like that would sell through the stratosphere and would be a valid platform for several years.

Is that too much to ask?

Too bad you can't use the Upad with the Prime games.

Oh well. Now if only they'd port Cubivore...

Bite your tongues, heathens!  :-X

Tingle, with your middle-aged gut, cosplay fetishism, gin blossomed countenance, and... flamboyant gesticulations, you are without a doubt the funniest MF in the Zelda universe. Please keep making the non-believers as uncomfortable as you can. Kooloo-Limpah!

To compare the mighty Tingle with the likes of Scrappy Doo is like comparing Santa Claus to Annoying Orange. g_f

You don't want to wait while half the racers download the track every race.

When those silly Mercedes cars were released you'd see a few. Not so much anymore.

Funny that I'll use a giant turtle monster riding on a teddybear and the real cars are the silly ones.

TalkBack / Re: Size Comparison: New 3DS VS. 3DS XL

I don't get it. Is this new 3DS smaller or larger than the original? That would be a more worthwhile comparison.

Excellent! Even that awkward silence blooper that ends the intro.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that appreciates this aspect of Nintendo. This should be required watching for every dum-dum that believes Nintendo should pull a SEGA.

Mega Man X was da bomb, y'all. Straight up! Or whatever '90s platitudes you want to throw at it.

I think this confirms more our suspicions that Nintendo is trying to migrate towards a platform similar to what Apple has going with their mobile devices. Hopefully we can get some types of themes for free as a teaser or from some Club Nintendo promotion.
Hopefully we can get a multi-device authentication scheme like iTunes purchases as well.

This is like what the "virtual console" should be; A real console that plays all the old cartridge games.

Even illicitly acquired ROMs!!!

Seriously they would sell several million of them.

I can admit it hasn't held up well. But it will always be one of my favorites because there was a time long ago that; This will only take about 15 minutes; When I was a boy...

The "Next Race" highlight should be an option.

What I really want is a way to save my favorite racer/kart combo.

What I really don't want are these ridiculous Mercedes karts. *booo*
