1277  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: October 02, 2011, 10:22:28 PM
Zelda: 4 Swords is free today!  But is it free for everyone, or just ambassadors?

No, that's tomorrow (Nintendo stores update on Thursdays now), and it's free to everyone.

I downloaded it this morning, actually.  Sad that there's no wifi - I won't be able to find anyone locally to play with.

That is how I felt about Star Fox 64 3D, but check this out:

I live with my girlfriend and her two sons (aged 6 and 8) and I realized that the DSi I bought her a few years ago and the 3DS I recently bought her are all able to download this Four Swords iteration.  Coupled with my DSi and 3DS, we have 4 units; two 3DSes for the adults, and two DSi for the kids.

The first five minutes were chaos.  Laughing and screaming, picking each other up and throwing, children punishing adults...  The six year old ran off with mommy, navigating a mazelike environment with unflinching ease while she is helpless to resist.

We began an actual level (the chaos took place in the tutorial level) and the 8 year old was boss.  I was more concerned with the 6 year old getting upset with everyone yelling "go here, come here, DON'T!!!!" that I hardly knew what the objective was.  But, the 8 year old was on point while I babysat the 6 and the woman... because if either of them died, we all have to start over.

What ended up happening is that the 6 year old would start avoiding danger by sitting in the corner until told otherwise, while the 8 year old and I took care of business and the GF looked for rupees.  It was crazy.  This semblance of order still had a backdrop of psychotic laughter and angry girlfriendry (girlfriend-ry), but we all were focused on the same thing, for fucking once.  It was amazing.

I made a big deal out of it in the first place, saying that it's the Legend of Zelda's 25th anniversary (I just turned 28, so I brought up how I was 3 when blah blah blah people love hearing about kids) and you know what... it was taken seriously.  Exploitative, but effective.

Cheers to Nintendo.  They really are the family company.

Finally something I'm looking for and for a good price. PM sent.

I could've sworn someone mentioned something about how  "Zelda talk is what Zelda informer and Nintendo sites are for", and I guess there's some truth there. I know the people on the Nintendo sites I visit have been talking about it nonstop since it was announced. I still have to agree with Eusis, though, that the people here just probably assume it's going to be good, rather than drum up a lot of discussion over it.

Actually, you still need to work on the prices for some of these. We're savvy gamers, we know when we're offered a good deal, and stuff like the Dragon Quest games and a few others can easily be found sealed for less that what you're asking for.
1281  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Totorie, Alchemist of Arland 2 announced for the PS3 on: September 30, 2011, 09:03:21 PM
"Average"? Wut? I saw it score regulary in the mid 80's. That's way above average, IMO.

EDIT: Now I see what you're saying. I suppose this is because I keep my sources filtered...

Yeah, in fact I'll probably be avoiding this thread until I get my hands on the game, and Aoelus already told me more than I wanted to know.
1283  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on: September 30, 2011, 03:08:04 PM
Seeing as this site covers it I doubt there'll be much of a problem. Anyways, this game is my after Christmas "present", though I'm still not looking forward to it. Don't get me wrong, I still think it'll be unanimously considered the best game ever made and will make games like Ocarina of Time and Soul Calibur look like crap. But still, it's Zelda, and I haven't been excited for a Zelda game since...ever. No wait, I was excited for Phantom Hourglass...but then that turned out to be a pretty crappy game.

I guess the biggest problem, though, is that I'm already satisfied with the series: Twilight Princess was already pretty much everything I've wanted out of Zelda, so I don't feel like I have much of a reason to even play Skyward Sword, becaise I'm already not gonna like it as much.

Honestly, I wish people wouldn't be so hung up on the furry aspect. It's just a game with Anthropamorphic characters, not unlike Star Fox or Sly Cooper.
1285  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ninokuni (Ghibli + Level 5 RPG) going PS3 on: September 24, 2011, 09:37:12 PM
I've recently read that this game (at least the DS version) actually pretty mediocre despite it's incredible art. =/

That's just the DS version. I saw some videos of it and it looked pretty mediocre. The PS3 version, on the other hand, looks incredible.

Ah cool. I'II keep an eye on it at least.

To be fair, this is the only negative word I've found on either version:

Take that for what you will. Everyone else has been positive about them.

Aw, and I was just about to import it...oh well, at least now it'll be more playable.

I dunno, I like random plot twists, and I don't mind cliches. Guess I'm in for a treat.
