  1. So awesome! I hope they meet the Wii U/PS3/360 stretch goal. They've made 200k+ in less than a day. Awesome. I love the look of this! (I really hope the backers choose the Roll-esque design for 'Call'(I know that name is for the 'Beck and 'Call' pun but I get giddy and pretend its a reference to Winona Ryder's Alien Resurrection character).

    Nintendo Wii U

    I am! I bought it off Neweg last year (when it was a Wii U exclusive, hehe) for $47.99. Gonna be cool. I love that they're including 40 revamped levels from Origins in the game.

    Nintendo 2DS

    Honestly, if you have never experienced the '3D' and don't know if you actually like it (versus automatically thinking it's a worthless gimmick despite never having tried it) there's really no reason to get a 2DS right away. The $40 price difference is worth the clamshell form factor, the stereo speakers & the OPTION to play with 3D (with varying degrees via a 3D slider) or not, with the standard 3DS.

    Vita came out in February 2012, didn't it? (Yes.)

    Nintendo Wii U

    Okay, that's one theory as to why Wii U had such a slow start. I don't think that's the biggest concern. Back in 2011, It was said that the 3DS failed to take off in its first 6 months due to brand confusion because people thought it was "just another DS" but sales picked up once the price came down and big games started hitting it. They didn't change the name. Another thing: 3DS was to crumble immediately when the more powerful, competitively priced Vita launched. Just food for thought.

    Do you read what you type before you post?

    Nintendo Wii U

    Just to put things into perspective: - PS4 ($399) + 1 game ($59.99) = $460 - Wii U(WWHD bundle - Digital Wind Waker HD + Hyrule Historia) + Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze ($49.99) + Sonic Lost World ($49.99) + Super Mario 3D World ($59.99) = $460 - Xbox One ($499) + 1 game ($59.99) = $560 *prices before tax & PS+/Xbox Live subscription costs.

    ZombiU & Pikmin 3 are out now. Wonderful 101 comes out soon. I would recommend waiting til September 20th, getting the Wind Waker bundle for $299. Side note: Crazy that Wii U will be $200 less than Xbox One. And I'm not sure why $50 for full featured remastered & retooled Wind Waker is a bad deal. Are full featured games less valuable now for some reason? Do you bat an eye when Disney doesn't sell Aladdin on BluRay for $10?

    Nintendo 2DS

    That boat already sailed with DSi XL, 3DS XL, Vita and small tablets. They dropped clamshell for this one because hinges aren't durable for sub 6yo children. Also worth noting: this isn't intended to phase out 3DS or XL. Edit: Oh my god. It has one speaker. lol Yikes.

    Nintendo 2DS

    Supposedly it was created with 'children under age 6 who shouldn't view 3D imagery' in mind, and benefits ($40 cheaper price & lower producion cost) from the removal of the 3D screen tech of the 3DS. I can see this drawing in the weird "I don't want a 3DS because 3D is a gimmick." folks (even though 2D gameplay was as simple as using a 3D slider/switch on 3DS & XL). Also It comes out the day as some little "Pokemon XY"(idk) game comes out so it might sell well. Thing's ugly though.

    Yeah, well my post has a pretty picture.

    *Wind Waker HD Bundle comes with a download code for Wind Waker HD, a Wind Waker themed GamePad and the Hyrule Historia art book) all for the same price as the newly discounted system (starting September 20th) - $299 Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze switched release months, with SM3DW coming out in November & DKCTF coming out December 6th. All you need to know.
  13. - Naughty Dog (Uncharted 2/The Last of Us team) Metroid game. - FFTA/A2 team doing a non-Conquest(no feudal Nobunaga stuff) Pokemon isometric pixel tactics game. - Igarashi's Castlevania team doing a Metroidvania-style Ninja Gaiden (NES series, not modern). - The Minish Cap/Oracle team remaking the original Zelda & Zelda 2 (Zero Mission-quality remakes). *drops the mic*
  14. Since I have been having a harder time finishing my mini dinosaur fossil model collection, I've just been collecting K.K. songs and planting fall/winter shrubs. And other stuff.
  15. Sakurai already confirmed both games will share the same roster. But I did wonder if the Villager would only look City Folk-y on the Wii U version and maybe would appear taller and slender in the 3DS one. But that got shot down last night.
  16. Speaking of which, I dunno if I mentioned it (and if I did, here's a reminder): Nintendo are giving away shiny Dialga, shiny Palkia and shiny Giratina soon aka starting tomorrow.
  17. Pretty sure he meant he'd rather play over Wi-Fi against someone 'live' than against a CPU controlled StreetPass team. But yeah, lucky for him (I guess), the handheld Pokémon games have Wi-Fi battling.
  18. I really really hope that Pokémon XY have StreetPass battling features (e.g. whenever you pass someone, your 'battle teams' are traded and you can fight the CPU whenever). And secret bases. And StreetPass Mystery Gifts! Speaking of StreetPass, you guys know that Nintendo recently changed up their 'Nintendo Zone' wifi hotspots to now include a StreetPass relay system, right? Meaning if someone visited a McDonalds or ATT Free WiFi spot, their StreetPass data gets stored there until someone else comes along and gets it. There's no better time to be taking your 3DS with you EV-erywhere.
  19. Uh, what other console would they put it on? But yeah, I've been wanting that since the N64 days. For me, ideally, the pokemon models would be very true to the official art (the Pokedex 3D models are awesome), and the art direction would be cel-shaded. The game mechanics would be exactly like in the mainline handheld games, there would be a full map to explore. Items to find. Shinies, full 3D room decoration - like in Pokemon Stadium 2 but better - the whole kit and caboodle. The movement would have to be smooth, not rigid and janky like in the Genius Sonority games. Every pokemon would need to be in the game, but not every region, like some people want - in fact I would want it to be a brand new region, not a revamped region we've seen before, at least to start with. But let's not turn this thread into a "What do you want from a console Pokémon game?" discussion. (Because someone will bring up the stupid idea of turning the game into an MMO - whoops.)
  20. I have a feeling Fennekin will become a Fire/Bug.
  21. I would interject that Pikachu isn't a fully evolved form but then they'll probably introduce some clause that Pokemon that can be evolve with Stones can still Mega evolve. I hope not. But you may be right.
  22. Almost 20 years later, Kangaskhan's baby can finally leave its pouch when Kangaskhan Mega Evolves). MegaKangaskhan's ability is 'Paternal Bond', which lets it's child attack right after it. (The Kangaskhan joey looks so cool! I'm still holding out hope that it's a standalone Kangaskhan pre-evo!) Kangaskhid perhaps?
  23. So certain Pokémon including Blaziken, Lucario, Mawile, Ampharos and Absol are getting alternate forms (dubbed Mega Evolutions) - you may remember me thinking the new Mewtwo 'Awakened Forme' was dumb, as opposed to us getting a brand new Mew clone, but these look to be pretty dang cool. (I have always been a fan of Ampharos and his new form is said to become part Dragon so that's pretty cool.) Though, admittedly, they remind me of this picture which arose from discussions (around the time of Gen 4) about how Pokémon designs were getting too complex. Also: a cute new bunny pokemon!! - and a new electric rodent and a Gogoat pre-evo too, I guess.

    We? No. The emotions I felt most while playing this game were delight & wonder. @Brushfire: and it needs to involve the puffstool-spawned mushroom Pikmin from the first game.
