  1. 1.Predicting the MEGATONS of NINTENDO's E3 2012 conference You're all allowed to make 5 predictions which will happen on stage with Iwata and co. One cannot predict games of which we already know, but one may predict, for example, things we'll see in such games such as new gameplay mechanics, new characters etc, of which we haven't the foggiest. A new Metroid game. I'm still undecided on if I think it's going to be a Metroid Prime on the Wii U or the oft-denied Metroid Dread on the 3DS. I think it's about time we get a sequel to Fusion! Wii U name change. <- With how Nintendo realised that the 3DS is a confusing name when it comes to mass marketing the product as something different to the DS, I think they'll change it. Of course we'll all believe it's because they realised it just isn't a very good name. A Wii U Mario launch game. I think it'll be a brand new game (think Super Mario Sunshine to Super Mario Galaxy rather than Galaxy to Galaxy 2). <-They keep talking about how the 3DS only really took off when the two Mario games landed, so I think they'll leave the gates with one this time. The Nintendo Network will be fully unveiled explaining how we can have a single account for use on the Wii U and the 3DS. It will also be mentioned that we can transfer Wii purchases to the Wii U. <-Not sure if this one counts because it seems to be considered a certainty. The GBA & DS back catalogue will be trickle-released on the 3DS Virtual Console and the Gamecube & Wii on the Wii U Virtual Console. <- I'm almost certain we'll get one of these. As they're going to be digitally distributing Wii U games it can't really be countered with "but Wii games will have huge file sizes!". Also, with the Wii U having Wii hardware for Wii emulation it should still contain the MIOS for GCN. 2.Outrageous claims This is where you can make the most out of your fantasy, because you can make 4 'unlikely-to-happen' kind of claims which might happen during the whole of E3.. DS games will also be available on the Wii U Virtual Console with the controller screen acting as the lower screen and the TV acting as the upper screen. <- Unlikely as Nintendo probably see this as a selling point on the 3DS. All Wii U games will be playable in 3D on 3DTVs. This won't be a selling point but will just be there and work much like the nVidia 3D Vision on PC. <- Unlikely because it might detract from the 3DS. I think it has to happen though because it'll probably be like this on the other next gen consoles. A 3DS redesign will be announced. It won't be called the 3DS Lite to avoid confusion with the DS Lite. It will have a second analogue stick, slightly better screens and a clamshell design which doesn't leave an imprint on the top screen. <- Unlikely because Nintendo won't want to steal the Wii U's thunder. Wii games will be rendered at 1080p instead of just using hardware emulation. <- Nintendo have already said this won't be the case and it would take quite a technical feat to achieve without issues. I've included it though as they know it's a wanted feature. 3.Predicting the aftermath You're also allowed to make 2 predictions regarding all that follows the conference, which would be predictions regarding interesting teases from developers, roundtables, Reggie laying down the law on Geoff once again, ...etc.... Super Smash Bros 4 will be shown behind closed doors to the gaming press. <- I seem to remember it happening with Brawl. Mass Effect 3 will be announced as a third party title available on the Wii U at launch. It'll be a port which makes very little use of any of the Wii U specific features. <- I'm hoping for a ME3 which uses all of the Wii U features to the max but I can't see that happening!
  2. Fire Emblem Awakening

    Personally I'm hoping that the Wii U offers Gamecube games for download. The prices for Path of Radiance are crazy. Edit: But then again, I'm not crazy about playing games on different controllers to which they were designed on.
  3. Pandora's Tower

    Same here. I'm wondering if that's why we had to wait a while to receive the emails. Some people were receiving emails on release and I'm guessing they had done it in release date order.
  4. Pandora's Tower

    Oh wow, twice as long as I thought it said. Even more reason why people's Kid Icarus cards shouldn't have arrived yet.
  5. Pandora's Tower

    I've also received two emails about this recently. Just out of curiosity, did you register the games out of order? Nintendo Club deliveries have always taken 30 days. I think it even says that when you checkout.
  6. New Super Mario Bros 2

    The selling of digital codes at shops is actually a really good idea. Yes, you won't be able to trade in the games but in return you get the ease of having the game for use at any point. In addition, unlike pure digital distribution, there's a chance that the shops could sell these download codes as competitively as they sell the cartridge games.
  7. Advice on Web Hosting and Domain Names

    Personally I use Namecheap for domain registration. I've heard good things about AwardSpace's paid hosting. Their most expensive package includes two domains and ASP.net hosting in addition to PHP.
  8. Fire Emblem Awakening

    Thanks, seems like 2012 is a busy year for the 3DS!
  9. Fire Emblem Awakening

    What's the ETA on this for the EU?
  10. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    I really hope it's just a special SKU or advanced release.
  11. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    The latest news article on the official Nintendo site doesn't mention the horrible move of giving retail exclusivity to GAME, just that Nintendo are acting as the distributor for the game.
  12. 3DS Firmware Update - Includes Folders

    I like this update. I think it shows that Nintendo are serious about using online features of their consoles to their full extent. Like many others have said, I wish there was the ability to change the colours of the folders. I'm still hoping that one of the future updates will contain some kind of in-game messaging functionality. Even if they just make the letter box app one of the apps which can be launched while in a game.
  13. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    I guess we can hope it's just a three day exclusive, right?
  14. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    It is the case. It's on GAME's website and they've mentioned it in their twitter. Rather amusingly they said "As it's exclusive we will make sure all pre-orders are fullfilled." Anybody remember Mass Effect 3's N7 Edition? I can't post the link to their twitter because I'm under 15 posts.
  15. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    I know it wasn't aimed at me but I did have a pre-order down with another retailer and I'm hoping that the GAME exclusive is just a short period of exclusivity or a new SKU like someone else mentioned. By limiting the amount of sales the game will make it will negatively effect the online aspect of the game. With how this game seems to make use of the online a lot I think it will have a negative impact on the game overall.
  16. Kirby 20th Anniversary Disc

    It was a £20 release, wasn't it? I only remember paying £18 for it. Yeah, it's more than a SNES game would cost on the VC but it came with an artbook and music CD. Not to mention they were never going to release it on the VC.
  17. Kirby 20th Anniversary Disc

    I actually really like the Mario Anniversary game, the only thing I feel it was missing was the inclusion of Super Mario World. As far as I know there's been no Kirby collections in the past so they're going to have to at least make a new menu for selecting the games on this.
  18. Heroes of Ruin 3DS ( S-E+N-Space )

    As it's a GAME exclusive I simply won't be buying it. I have zero trust in them as a business and will not support their business model of selling over-priced games. It's this nonsense which got them into trouble and they've clearly not learned from it. It's a shame because this is supposed to be a multiplayer game and locking it away like this will only damage that part of it. I'm really disappointed by this move.
