    I really hope it is good but all I can think of is Red Steel. Promised so much and delivered so little. I'm not going to cancel my pre-order though. I still think it sounds interesting.
  2. 3DS XL

    The 3DS is region locked. You'd have to buy all your 3DS games from Japan too.
  3. Wii HDMI adapter

    Your TV would probably do a better job than the adapter. Unless you don't have a component input, I can't really see the point.

    The footage looks good but the voice over at the end is terrible. "They can smell normal people coming. Be quiet else they will find you. But that doesn't make them deaf or blind" Doesn't make any sense.
  5. New Super Mario Bros 2

    Ah I didn't realise they were available pre-release in Japan. That's not a good sign. They're the only way I'm going to be buying digital versions of games, assuming they tracked the general physical price.
  6. New Super Mario Bros 2

    You do have to think that there aren't any DD games out yet though. So it would make sense that there's currently none in stores. As far as online retailers go, maybe they're going with "if you can get online to buy it you can go on the eShop and get it direct".
  7. 3DS XL

    Just to add that mine also crackles when some games push the audio. The speakers are just not of the same quality as the original 3DS.
  8. 3DS XL

    I'm loving my 3DS XL but it does have a slight yellow tinge and the bottom screen marks the top screen. Both of the problems I had with the original 3DS.
  9. 14 Killed in Dark Knight Rises Cinema Shooting

    Absolutely horrific.
  10. MGS: Snake Eater 3D (£9.95 @Zavvi)

    I have the PS3 version but I've still purchased it (thanks to @\-Dem0\- for pointing it out) because I found the demo to be a much more playable version. Being able to crouch walk and change camo easily is so much better!
  11. 3DS XL

    You'll lose everything other than your saves. The saves are stored on the cartridges. I'm not sure if you'll lose your 'Extra Data' because it's on your SD but it might be tied to the console which created it.
  12. Luigi's Mansion 2

    or maybe even DLC.
  13. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy

    All this talk of Donkey Konga has made me dig out the bongos again. I agree with those who have said that the DLC is a bit pricey. At least in Rock Band you get the whole song when you buy it. Doubt that will stop me from buying them though, especially if it's anything from FFXIII. I love that game, I don't understand all the hate.
  14. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy

    Bugger, I forgot it was the VC too.
  15. 3DS XL

    They say it's the version to go for if you don't have a 3DS yet. I can't see how that can be seen as a negative. And they do say that any major changes would fracture the market, which is exactly what you've said.
  16. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy

    I received my copy from Amazon today. I like the pre-order stylus though I do wish they'd have gone with 'card-in-a-holder' rather than sticker for the little characters.
  17. 3DS XL

    I'd hardly say they were completely trashing it. They make mention that they probably should have included a second circle pad and that the bigger screens will look more pixelated as they haven't increased the resolution. They do moan about the touch screen though. Which is complete nonsense. I'd love to know how I'd play Brain Training with a capacitive screen. They end on which I feel is a valid statement.
  18. Stars Catalogue/Updates

    I bought the Mario statue recently. It's quite nice but it definitely feels a bit 'cheap'. The base itself isn't even solid.
  19. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy

    I didn't receive mine today. I hope you fared better.
  20. 3DS Console Discussion

    They have Mario Sports Mix on the Wii too. I bought it and they would only give me the disc and case saying that the reduced price was 'due to the lack of manual'. I know most of us don't even look at the manual but it annoys me knowing that there's a game sitting in my collection which isn't complete. You'd think, with them expecting people with a 3DS (or DSi) to upgrade to a 3DS XL that they'd actually allow your account to be used on multiple devices. For every good thing I hear about Nintendo's online strategy there's always some stupid decision to balance it out.
  21. 3DS XL

    Except they do determine the price by what they sell it to the retailers for. When the price drop happened it was because Nintendo started to charge the retailers less, not because they all decided to drop the price. So @cvl is right to blame Nintendo for the price. Personally I'm okay with the price. I was expecting £150-£180. It's at the top end but still within what I would pay.
  22. New Super Mario Bros 2

    Tails would like a word with those who say foxes can't fly.
  23. Letterbox

    I'm probably being stupid but how do I reply to a letter?
  24. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy

    Amazon haven't even dispatched mine yet. I guess I'll be joining in the fun some time next week.
  25. New Super Mario Bros 2

    That's true. But then I guess it's no different to buying a limited edition version of a game. I'm not completely sold on digital downloads on it yet especially when they're as expensive as the retail version. And I guess I sort of enjoy having the cartridges and cases too.
