I just really hope they don't actually release the thing with the name "New 3DS," because if retailers thought parents were confused about the Wii U... hoo boy.

"I'd like a new 3DS"
"Do you mean a New 3DS or a regular 3DS that is new?"
"....wut,"

GameStop/EB Games:

Customer (Parent): Hi, I'd like to purchase a Nintendo DS for my son.
Employee: Are you after a 3DS or the original DS?
Customer: Um, the newest one, I think?
Employee: Oh, you'll want the 3DS then. So is that the New 3DS you're after, or the regular 3DS?
Customer: ... Sorry, what?
Employee: There's a New 3DS, but also an older 3DS. They... almost play the same games, not quite though.
Customer: The New one, then, I guess.
Employee: Oh, but there's also the 2DS. Let me show you the ten different bundles we have for them.

*20 minutes later*

Customer: Okay, i'll take a New 3DS in (insert decision on colour choice here).
Employee: Great. So did you want that New 3DS Pre-owned? Or just new?

le-sigh.

First reaction on seeing Shulk's face on the preview image for the teaser video: AHHHHHHH! Kill it with fire!

Looking forward to playing as him in the game. Should be loads of fun!....but still that face. *cries*

I'm so happy..... :D
SO HAPPY. I think it's finally time I preordered too. I'm just worried, is anyone getting the WiiU one at all?? I feel like everyone is on the the 3DS.

Also, Dunban was on the Smash art...another character or art fire arts sake (probably the latter, but that's cool too)?

I love nintendo directs
I'll be getting the Wii U version because it is better for playing the game at parties since I only know one other person with a 3DS.

On the topic of Suikoden 5, it is easily my favorite game in the Suikoden series.I don't remember the load times being an issue for me, and I absolutely love the storyline in that game.

And shit forgot about her. And Viki too for that matter.
There isn't really a whole lot to explain about Viki, she has the most powerful teleportation magic in existence and it happens to go crazy when she sneezes. Just headcannon her as a time lord with an internal TARDIS and boom everything works. :p

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I'd prefer some procedurally generated vegetation.

What bugs me the most about combat is how close the camera is.
I really hope there's a way to pull it way back.

I have a thing with too-close cameras...

I'm hoping that because that is a complaint among like...70% of all reactions to the gameplay video, they listen and pull the damn camera back.

...but, watching the video, I don't know, I wonder if it's sort of "part of the design", like you're meant to focus more 1-on-1.  It still looks off, and the camera jerking is really something.... *groan*, I dunno.  Most Tales games offer camera options, so fingers crossed.

Cutscenes look pretty and the characters are nice to look at.  The battles DO look great, just the camera needs some serious work.  And would it kill them to add some more trees to that field (or the faster sprinting like Xillia 2 added?  Shit, that first video has MC practically running straight across an empty field for a full minute).

Not really, Suikoden 2 only has a few that are easy to miss. Futch and Humphrey spring to mind. But even til the end of the game, most are always recruitable. So it's usually not to late. Suikoden 5 has a lot of really short windows of opportunity in that way. Oboro and his gang (like 5 characters missed just by not getting Oboro) is really notable in that regard. Murad is another, having to speak to him multiple times at different parts of the story with only limited opportunities to do so.

Suki 1 has Leon Silverburg who decides to hang out at a ruined village you have no reason to visit when he's actually looking to join you.
Suki 2 has anyone you left in Muse (although I think they move before the Beast Rune is dropped on their sorry asses) and the Listening Crystals but that's more of the other two guys trying to trick you out of the Griffin and Ayda (Futch and Humphrey are only problematic due to the Matilda Gate sequence break throwing you off).
Suki 3 doesn't really have anybody save for maybe a dog due to only getting both your army and the castle as your base during the final chapter.
Suki 4 has Ted and that's all I remember from the LP I read of that game.
And I don't really think there's anybody really missable per say in Tactics (not that there's even 108 people to recruit in that game anyways).

If I could shrink this down somehow and not end up with a blurry mess of pixels, this would make a nice avatar.



Thanks.


Edit: Might as well add something while I'm here.





I'm probably just going to keep adding these until I run out or somebody posts.

"I'd like a new 3DS"

"....wut,"

You'd think they learned their lesson, but no~ooo.


That said, at least most of the upgrades to the (god please don't let them stick with that) 'New' 3DS/XL can be found in the handful of peripherals released for the vanilla 3DS/XL. The only major outliers are the extra shoulder buttons and the amped processor (and the tracking 3D which looks really fucking sweet but isn't really necessary), in fact I think the nub is probably better on the Monster Hunter control stick than the 'New''s C-nipple (and the probability of the Amiibo reader being as relevant to games as the AR reader is to them is unfortunately high).
