The last time Nintendo released a handheld with interchangeable faceplates, they didn’t actually release any faceplates for it.
Just saying, don’t get excited about the New Nintendo 3DS having interchangeable faceplates yet, and that this means you won’t have to buy a new system to change the look of your 3DS, because Nintendo could easily pull a GameBoy Micro and only sell the new faceplates as exclusive pack-ins for new version of the hardware.
Its still hard for me to process that I got admonished at my friend’s wedding (by the groom’s own sister no less) for toasting to him with a non-alcoholic mixed drink I ordered from the free bar instead of the champagne they had at all the tables that you were “supposed” to toast with.
Its like “how dare you disrespect my bother’s marriage by failing to consume an intoxicating beverage in honor of him you’re an adult you’re supposed to drink ALCOHOL now damnit >:(“
Oh and my dad actually got upset at me for ordering the non-alcoholic drink in the first place and told me that it was a kid’s drink and that I need to adhere to social norms and that that ordering the drink made me “uncool”.
I felt so uncomfortable there it took me like fifteen minutes to even pluck up the courage to ask for the soft drink, I thought the guy making the drinks would make fun of me or something.
I know ONE drink doesn’t instantly make you drunk but is it really THAT immature that I’d rather drink something I feel safe and comfortable drinking and that I like the taste of rather than drink something I never tried before that could possibly make me feel things that I’m not interested in or ready to feel?
And what’s more it probably pushed me even further from my own genuine interest in trying alcohol on my own terms because i can’t be comfortable with doing something if I feel like I’m being pressured or forced into it because I’m arbitrarily “supposed” to do it in order to be “mature” or to be “accepted”.
No one even TRIED to claim the iPod yet. The deadline I put on the poster was 15 days from now, I really hope someone can prove they are the legitimate owner, but I now kinda doubt I’ll even get any emails about it.
The idea of the “Nintendo Seal of Quality” was such potent propaganda that today people are going online saying crap like “Nintendo should never have stopped their ‘Seal of Quality’ program, thats why the Wii got buried in crappy tennis and bowling games.”
All the Seal of Quality ever meant was that Nintendo licensed the game or accessory, it never actually guaranteed a game or accessory was ANY good, and if it did, James Rolfe wouldn’t have been able to start the Angry Video Game Nerd series cause at least half of those crappy games are on Nintendo systems.
Okay now “Ultimate NES Remix” is coming out for the 3DS.
So much for that bullshit where Nintendo was saying that Nintendo 3DS was “incapable” of handling NES Remix so it would stay Wii U exclusive.
Seriously no one believed you that 3DS could handle Kid Icarus Uprising and Mario 3D Land but couldn’t handle graphically enhanced NES games, ESPECIALLY when some the first downloadable games for 3DS were graphically enhanced NES games.
I should be grateful as now I may actually buy NES Remix, but geez Nintendo.
I love you but when you act silly you REALLY lay it on thick.
Why should I be happy about paying HUNDREDS of dollars for a new version of the Nintendo 3DS I purchased in 2011, for the privilege of playing a port of a game from 2011, that came out on the Wii, which was arguably a DECADE OUT OF DATE when I purchased it back in 2006?
There better be a LOT more to this New Nintendo 3DS than the initial announcement.
Hey where are all those dudes accusing me of kissing Nintendo’s ass back when they were making decisions I HAPPENED to be agreeing with?
He just stands around and the second Mario and his pals walk up he’s like “YO HOP ON MY BACK I GOT THIS LETS GO” and just dives into the water and takes off.
It would have been cute if he wore goggles and flippers on his feet kind of like how the dolphins in Super Mario World wore snorkles or goggles or something like that that I can’t exactly remember, but yeah.
Also art class sucked it took me HOURS to finish anything to the point that it was gradable and I often had to stay during lunch after school to do so, and also one of the art teachers kept giving me grief because my art looked like stick figures and kept just ordering me to draw better.
