Super Train Station H
As someone who’s carried their 3DS with them in in their pocket nearly every single time I’ve left the house since the day 3DS came out, those extra 6.6 millimeters tall and 8 millimeters wide on the New Nintendo 3DS have me cringing ever so slightly, cause in a world where I gotta carry keys, a wallet, and a smartphone, the original model Nintendo 3DS is freaking gigantic and every millimeter counts.
I’ll be honest, I like the device itself, but its timing, and its potential to divide the 3DS userbase over upgrades that don’t represent a proper “generational leap” concerns me.
And part of me feels like, if this New 3DS was the 3DS that was launched back in 2011, maybe it might have actually been worth its overinflated launch price of 250 dollars.
I’d just really like to know what exactly is the technical margin by which by which the New 3DS is capable of running games like Xenoblade Chornicles while the old 3DS is incapable of doing so.
Because based on what we’ve already seen the 3DS to be capable of, if its really THAT thin a performance gap between 3DS and New 3DS being able or unable to run Xenoblade, I’ve got to fault Nintendo for not giving 3DS better specs three years ago, because a lot of games and system features could have been better, and more ambitious and creative games could have been possible on 3DS
I mean, could the 3DS Pokémon games have ACTUALLY been in 3D and have 3D battle scenes that don’t drop to the framerate of a darn flipbook if the 3DS had these specs from the beginning?
So ultimately I like the New 3DS, I just question its viability as a device given the circumstances of its announcement, and wish Nintendo gave me the opportunity to get this system at Union Square Best Buy back in 2011.
I’m no longer at a time in my life where I can responsibly spend hundreds of dollars to replace a toy I already own that isn’t broken, for a mere marginal upgrade.
All this really does for me is make me interested in seeing what the true successor to Nintendo 3DS will be like.

No Nintendo.

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in 2011, for the privilege of playing a port of a game from 2011, that came out on the Wii, which was arguably a DECADE OUT OF DATE when I purchased it back in 2006?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?

Finally reached World S 8-♛ in Super Mario 3D Land!

After having owned the game since the day BEFORE its official release date back in 2011.

3D Land is my favorite 3D Mario game but I’m so slow with video games gosh.

You goofed, Nintendo.
Either that, or you weren’t writing with enough specificity.
The Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda and the Princess Zelda from Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link are totally different people.
The real question is, which one did Link hook up with?

In the last year I’ve taken 1,075,786 (One million seventy-five thousand seven hundred eighty-five) steps with my Nintendo #3DS.

I’m just impressed I actually remembered to check a year later and take the second picture.

Yo…

Can we get over the notion that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is just going to be a “throwaway” game for until SSB for Wii U comes out? I’m sick of hearing people talk crap about it all the time.

This isn’t the GBA era where a portable version of a game would basically have nothing in common except the name. 3DS is a more than capable system and unless you’ve been living under a rock since 2011 you aught to know that 3DS has more than proven itself by now.

The Smash Direct a few months back made it very clear that the 3DS game wasn’t going to be just a half-assed cash in, and what was shown at E3 clearly reflects that they’re putting just as much care and effort into it as the Wii U game.

Also, I love the complaints that “They’re making a console game for a handheld.”, they’re not, SSB for 3DS is a handheld game for a handheld system.

I’m going to have to have a talk with one of my family members. Lol. #Wii #Nintendo

Why do I see so many people just assuming with no doubt whatsoever that a “Pokémon Z” is going to come out due to the existence of Zygarde?

Seriously, this is exactly like when people were like “Yeah forget Pokémon Black and White I’ll just wait till Pokémon Gray comes out.”

You’re awesome Reggie, but your edgeup is totally crooked.

Here’s where my Wii U is now. I moved it to the left side of the dresser for reasons of maximizing the Game Pad range to neighboring rooms where the Wii U sometimes gets played from.
It’s also neat because now its right next to my 3DS’s charging cradle, so I’ve got both my 8th gen Nintendo systems in matching black right next to each other.
Also, guest appearance by a very special Pokémon Crystal cartridge that I will keep for the rest of my life.

"I know nintendos bent on this kid shit but could they please just give us ONE more mature Zelda like Ocarina?"

"i was hoping for an awesome zelda but they fucked it up again"

"Holy shit the graphics suck"

"all i wanted was an epic, action packed zelda and they give us this kiddie shit"

"Ok, I’m officialy done with Nintendo. How come they put HD graphics on the Wii U and they use them in god damn cartoons???"

"see i told you guys the e3 2011 demo was bullshit, the wii u couldn’t handle those graphics and they downgraded the game to this"

"they had their fun with wind waker, now at long fucking last Nintendo give us a REAL Zelda"

Yeah, okay guys.

And seriously, Ocarina of Time as a “Mature” game? Where you four when it came out or something?

I’m trying to spread some sense, but people are already watching this video and saying “But there’s absolutely nothing suspicious about the leaked photo, that proves it’s real!”

If I’m wrong on Tuesday I’ll totally own up to it, but for now…


E3 2014 “Mario Maker leak” - Photo Analysis

After spending entirely too much time analyzing the “leaked” photo and the alleged source photo it was altered from, here are my observations.

I really don’t understand why converting to 12 hour time isn’t part of the localization process of Nintendo games and systems to the US, at least as a simple OPTION.

The overwhelming majority of people here never use 24 hour time here unless forced to by devices that have no 12 hour option.

I have this screenshot of my computer that I think was either from some sort of rom hack of EarthBound Zero, or just some sort of altered version of the title screen.
I can’t pinpoint why, but there’s just something really ominous about this version of the title screen to me.
