Hmm, don't think I'll go that far. :p

What's the coin count you need for the best ending? I plan on getting all the treasures.
 
nice, congrats beril, hope you sell even more!

Ubisoft just priced Ghost Recon R$ 179 (US$ 90) in the Brazil eShop, topping even Nintendo's ludicrous retail prices. It's even more ridiculous because it costs $30 in the US eShop, making it 3X as expensive in the Brazil eShop for no justifiable reason at all.

Bad Ubisoft, bad. Third parties should be pricing their games lower than Nintendo, not higher. Are they trying to make the physical version look like a deal or something?
wtf...

The Brasil eShop is so bizzare, the DD games are usually cheaper, yet the retail are priced about the same or even higher than the stores. Thank God for the Youkon, but I wish I could buy everything without having to change all the time...
 
By the way, I've completed SMB: Lost Levels 4 times. :D Another 4 times now... I use the warp points now and it's actually quite easier. On my first playthrough I didn't skip any part of the game.

A-D Worlds, here I come!

It's not difficult; the treasures add an awful lot. Chances are you'll be close or maybe even there just from collecting coins, the treasures, and playing the end of level game.

According to a walkthrough, all the treasures combined give you 90,000.

Ah, I think I almost have 9999 already, so I should be in the clear.

Edit- Yeah, I have 9786 at Course 33, I should be all set.
 
I downloaded the Brain Age demo, I actually really liked it. It'll be my first Brain Age game and I already went on and pre-ordered it. Feb is going to be pretty sweet between it and Fire Emblem. The math demo kind of kicked my ass though, that two-step or whatever was harder than I thought lol

Do yourself a favour and get the digital version of Brain Age.

3-back is tedious. Makes sense that the real version will be timed. 1-back and 2-back can go pretty fast, but things started crawling at 3-back for me. BTW, I think it's 20s - finish 85% or higher on 3-back, 30s-40s-50s - finish lower than 85% on 3-back.

Seconded, if you don't mind paying full retail for it.

Roto13, did you change your mind on that or are you skipping it for now?

Still skipping it, but I'm more likely to download it for $30 than buy the physical version for more than $10, because I'd actually use the digital version for more than a week.
 
Nintendo Life's review of Ikachan really crushed my excitement for the game. They weren't exactly down on the game but said it was super short.

Like less than 2 hours.

Not sure of what to do now, I'll let some more reviews/impressions come in I guess.

Not actually that important
Everyone disagrees. :p I don't know if the music of Gunman Clive could possibly fit more with the game.

There could probably stand to be more of it, but the music is probably my favourite thing about the game.
Seriously, I would've never thought so many people went as far as loving that soundtrack, but hey de gustibus... It feels empty, doesn't boost the pace of a Mega-Man "clone" like it should and adds a sense of repetitive emptyness instead. More power to you guys if you honestly enjoy it. :) but please don't try to put it on the same plate as something like Mega Men 2, which is pure blasphemy :p Although I'd also say that even if I also think myself that Gunman Clive is a neat little game, the statements I read around here about its quality are nothing short of hyperbolic to me.

I was just happy to support a GAFFER, I wanted to reward something cool being sold at a fair price on the eShop (for once) and I definitely wasn't disappointed, so all it's good in the end :)

You know the original game is freeware a la Cave Story, right? You can try it out for yourself right now. I don't think Nicalis added any substantial new content aside from redrawn graphics and a bigger playfield.

Well obviously it's not up there with one of the top video game soundtracks of all time, Mega Man 2. :p

Why are Europe and Japan so ahead in putting WL on 3DS VC? WTF is NoA smoking?

Europe gets WL2 in July, we get it last month.

Europe gets WL3 last month, we get it... presumably in May.

ARGH

I'm still sad because Zen Pinball was supposed to be the first 3DS game with DLC. Instead I've just got those same 4 tables...not interested in Marvel stuff, I want more original tables. :(
 
3€ a pop sounds extremely expensive and nickel&dime'ing when each full game featuring 4 boards is like 5-6€ on the 3DS eShop. Not buying.
The Wii U version isn't really expensive, the 3DS version was just unusually cheap. €2.99 per table/ €9.99 per four pack is the regular price on other platforms. And while it's certainly great to get stuff for cheap, I consider three bucks per table acceptable. Don't really like the four packs, though.
 
I haven't played the game, on the last RFN they said you don't actually have to do that. There are buttons you can use that will do the same thing, the game just doesn't tell you about it.
Wait, buttons? Like, hold buttons down and wait for tilt to end up where you want it to be, instead of just moving the system at your own speed? That sounds awful. Maybe if it was an analog stick that you could swing quickly…

I dunno, I think on RFN they said you don't have to tilt 360 degrees.
 
Zen Pinball tables I like:

El Dorado (Though a lot of people seem to disagree with me)
Blade
Iron Man
X-Men
Excalibur
Fantastic Four
Captain America

I haven't played every table, of course, but those are my favourites of what I own. Obviously I like Marvel. :p
