Video Game Chat / Re: New Super 3DS Bros

All the supposed hardcore gamers complaining about this because "oh I just bought a 3DS last month and now I have to buy a new 3DS to play new games." It's not Nintendo's fault you waited until three years into the console's lifecycle to buy it. And since you did that, you clearly are okay with not always playing brand new games as soon as they come out, so what's the issue? Keep playing through your backlog of 3DS games and in a few years, you can buy a N3DS and do the same thing.

Would they be complaining less if it wasn't called a 3DS? Maybe that makes it seem less like the new console it actually is. Or have they forgotten that new consoles are a thing? Granted, the original Game Boy and original DS lasted almost a decade, but the DS came out just three years after the GBA, which came out just three years after the GBC.

Reminds me of this:

(this one is ridiculously quiet; you might need to literally put your ear up against your speaker)

At least the first one acknowledges that there's more than one SNES game, but the second one sounds almost exactly like the people saying "Why do I have to buy a new 3DS just to play Xenoblade?"

But I mean I can understand those people back then not getting it, referring to the SNES as a new version of an NES rather than a new console, being at the beginning of modern gaming history. But in 2014, we've seen enough consoles to know that this is a thing that happens.

Maybe the reason it wasn't a worldwide Direct is because NOA is scrambling to come up with a better name for it.

We should get some more alternate costumes to go along with this one:

Game 8: SteamWorld Dig




So this is kind of a Metroidvania-ish game, I guess. You're a robot and you dig, and you keep digging to find powers that let you dig further and money to buy stuff that lets you dig faster. And then there's a boss battle at the end. It's quite short, probably falling into the category of video game candy, but it's very well designed, with a very clear and satisfying feeling of progression. Sound is good, character design is good, controls are good.

This is the fourth time I've beaten it, and my first time doing it in under 3 hours. A run under 2 hours probably wouldn't be too difficult for someone much better at video games than me. My first time through, my 3DS's shoulder buttons were broken, so I couldn't switch weapons, but it was actually still beatable. There are places where you need the drill to get through a rock, but if there's a laser nearby, you can lead the laser into the rock and break it that way. There's a lot of potential for speedruns and challenge runs here.

I may end up rebuying it on the Wii U someday. I like it a lot.

Zero Suit Shulk is the best thing to happen to Smash in a long time. Pit and Link are gonna have some competition now.



Final Smash looks pretty cool. It's not just going to be Dunban and Riki, though, is it? They've gotta have Reyn in there, right?



Also, I just realized they actually told us about Pittoo a while ago.

Putting the stylus on the bottom seems really stupid. Unless they've massively improved their styluses' sticking power over the Wii U and Old 3DS, that's going to fall out after a few months. I don't know why they keep randomly moving it to every possible location when they already had the perfect location on the DS Lite.

Not a huge fan of moving the Start and Select buttons back over there. I really liked being able to reach one with either thumb (especially since Select always does the same thing as Start in 3DS games). I'll get used to it again, though.

I am a huge fan of the Super Famicom colored face buttons. Hoping the American version either leaves them that way or changes them to the purple and lavender SNES buttons.

I noticed that they even put a little indentation in the hinge above the C-stick to give your thumb enough room up there. That's nice.

Not particularly looking forward to having to buy a MicroSD card that'll fit all the games on my normal sized SD card now. Gonna have to start watching for sales.

Also: Xenoblade is being ported to New 3DS in Japan, and won't work on Old 3DS. (No confirmation of a NA port yet.) So this is looking like it's more Game Boy Color than DSi.



I was going to say I'll have to wait to buy one until they make a purple one, but if we get these faceplates in NA, I guess I won't have an excuse.
