Splatoon datamine discovers dozens of on-disc details

@Keenthell I had EXACTLY the same issue. Now it works perfectly. Here's the solution...

Erase all connections on the U. Log in to your router (BT), turn 'smart wifi' off (or whatever it's called) and then change the wifi channel to 1. Rename the router, give it a new password and make it WPA2 only.

You will then have to reconnect all devices, but it's no biggy.

Nintendo details its outlandish process of transferring data to the New 3DS

acousticwilliam

3 years ago

F****sake! I followed the transfer settings of my XL to the MM N3DSXL, NNID transfer all fine but my saves aren't there!!!

Downloading my games again but none of my digital saves, photos (all 2 of them) or for that matter any of my save data from the SD has gone over to the microSD in the N3DSXL.

Have I now got to buy an adapter and a screwdriver, manually copy the backup of the SD to the microSD and then put it back in the N3DSXL?

I tried the wireless network thing but it's for PC only.

The Majora N3DSXL is lovely but this is so much hassle.

Nintendo confirms Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze character

They had 4 billion people watching them on a live stream worldwide with the big boys.

They had our attention in the palm of their hands.

If there was one moment to shout to the world "Hey, listen!" the VGX spot was the time.

So they chose to show Cranky Kong doing a Scrooge McDuck impression and Reggie wore a Metroid pin.

...

I like my WiiU, Wind Waker, MH, 3D World. But come on Nintendo, stop messing around and open your eyes. The general populace needs more than Smash and Kart coming up to convince them the WiiU is right for them.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 premium edition comes in Dracula's tomb

acousticwilliam

5 years ago

@menage Well, I won't say you're wrong because, you know, these are opinions. I appreciate your perspective on this.

As a long time fan of the series seeing where it has ended up is a little heartbreaking.

Digressing, Mario 64 retains the majority of the series tropes and themes and evolved them. It was evolution and revolution. In my opinion, that's a pretty weak argument, particularly picking the one game that really did break new ground for a series, significantly for videogames on the whole.

Biting my tongue - in my experience LOS is a broken shadow cast on God of War. It's not the evolution I'd hoped for. The PS2 games hinted at the direction.

I agree with @celery7, the first Devil May Cry was the best 3D Castlevania.

This isn't Castlevania, let's be honest.

Castlevania ended with Order of Ecclesia and Adventure Rebirth.

I've played the reboot. I've trudged through the 3DS game. Dross in a Castlevania costume. Castlevania in nothing else but the name.

The strongest next-gen line-up from the unlikeliest source

acousticwilliam

5 years ago

@Britler Oh I totally see how it can be felt with those games. I think it's purely subjective with me, I thought Xenoblade was rad, but I feel a bit disinterested. Now, is that because it has gone quiet? Is it because we have no real idea of what it is? Is it because there's no concrete release window to lock on to?

Does this contradict my thought of being teased by snippets of future releases? Probably.

Smash is obviously going to be smashing (#LOL) and Zelda... I'm burned by Skyward Sword so whatever is next needs to be really flipping special. However, I (and the World) would be a lot happier if we could get a tease, a 10 second blip.

Imagine giving us something to believe in, akin to the impact of the Spaceworld trailer & kind of like the Zelda HD Wii U demo.
Then I think I'd be more "Take my money!"

Off-topic: Nintendo should ditch their PR and marketing agency, the lifestyle pitch is awful.

I think the other major problem with the Wii U on the whole is lack of expanse and tease - there's nothing that will make people convert & buy in anticipation.

For example:

- Zelda
- Smash Bros

But then what? (I'm purposefully ignoring fitness, sport & DK, I really don't care for those). Yes, yes, there's 'X', but that's beside the point I'm trying to make.

With the true next gen consoles, there's an excited investment there because you can see things to stick on birthday lists, mark on the calendar for pay day, get a piggy bank ready. And that's now before launch.

Knowing that Smash Bros and Zelda are coming is obvious. I want to be teased by something that makes me anxious and nerdily giddy, to make me want to be there on day one of release for this unknown new title/s.

It can be basic, minimal even - but a fresh avalanche of 'what's coming soon' would capture gamers attention hugely and drive people to buy and say "Holy shit I can't wait for that!"

If Nintendo want to do well this Christmas, they need some sort of mega fat Nintendo Direct at the end of November just before the 'new lot' drop.

Wii U Kid Icarus, 2D Metroid, unknown IP, unknown IP, unknown IP, Star Fox / Metroid crossover, unknown IP and then a Platnum produced Star Fox 'classic' game

Finally, right at the end a teaser of Wario cake farting on top of some pirate loot - impending open world Wario Land Q2 2015.

Chances are we'll get one featuring Wii Fit, DK, and Sonic & Mario Sports. In which case they will still be standing in poop in the New Year, I'll finish 3D World and Ebay the lot.

It's essentially become a 1st party title machine only, with a few exclusives.

However, when the 1st party titles are from Nintendo, that's all that matters.

Look at how the 3DS exploded once the key titles released.

I'll be getting a Wii U - Christmas morning, 3D World, Monster Hunter = perfick!

It was wii-lly special.

Off the top of my head favourites:

I'm going to say Wii Sports & Twilight Princess too as they were wii-lly rather good launch games.
I feel like the Wii U didn't have such a 'must have' launch, further highlighting the strong launch of the wii wii.

See the forum thread for my impressions. Started fairly positively. However, having just finished Alucard's chapter I'm going to Ebay it when I'm done, it's just a bit naff, not enough good to counter the bad. Take away the Castlevania name and there's nothing there.

It's B.S! They should target Sega for abusing Ecco the dolphin - forced time travel. Poor thing.

On a side note, The tanooki suit changes Mario's DNA to take on racoon-like properties (like floating and spin attacking), therefor, Mario IS a tanooki. He doesn't kill or skin any.
