    Where is the US feed? I thought the US version was starting now :(

    I don't think they're having an actual event. Their twitter said to check back around 8:30, so they might just be tweeting.

    Boo...

    P.S. - This game they are showing on the Japanese video looks weird. I can't tell what's going on here. It's like an RPG but there is a grid you draw like Picross?

    They did just tweet that they're releasing a Kirby 20th Anniversy collection disk for Wii.

    They announced New Super Mario Bros. Mii at e3 last year. But yeah, I'm surprised they are doing two. But then, they are apparently doing that with Smash Bros as well, so *shrug*

    There is some sort of gaming event coming up in the next two months that might indeed shed some light on those two.

    I'd say LM2 is a definite for this year and PM is probably late this year or early next.

    Folders only came to iOS at version 4 so two years or so ago. Not sure how long android had them.

    I'll only get Animal Crossing when Nintendo allows downloadable retail games. I don't mind (and usually prefer) physical media for stuff but Animal Crossing is such a pain to get into without having easy access to it.

    Oh ok. Patches are something of a double edged sword for me. Maybe I've just been lucky but most of the stuff I've gotten on Nintendo platforms (even from third parties) has been pretty solid. Patches are a gateway to lazyness but if something is broke it's probably best that there is a way to fix it.

    I don't know. I'd agree except I've seen the issue come up enough at this point to just assume the developers that are going to be lazy are just going to be lazy and the ability to patch will at least let those lazy developers not completely screw over people :P

    I'd say that patching is good any way you slice it. I imagine Nintendo's certification process will be as strict as ever, but patches can come out to fix anything that escaped or maybe even add features.

    The last two console Zelda games have had game-breaking bugs that had to be fixed using the most arcane methods imaginable due to the system's lack of support for patches.

    I think there's something incredibly wrong with the industry that it allows games to ship broken and be patched to work later, but not having that available on Nintendo platforms hasn't stopped bugs from getting through at all. The only difference is that games that ship broken stay broken.

    So I just became a 3DS owner

    The only physical game I have is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Digitally, I have Mario's Picross, VVVVVV (this is kinda the main reason I got one), and Sakura Samurai because it sounded awesome

    Two things I've been continually thinking since my purchase:

    1) I'd really love to try Kid Icarus, but the stand and any possible discomfort that comes with it frighten me. I don't know anyone who has purchased it yet to give it a try.
    2) Why the hell aren't Pokemon Red/Blue on the VC?

    This is true. I'd even accept a "channel" like MKWii and Wii Fit to allow for a little bit of basic stuff.

    Appreciate the return of the thread. In the spirit of celebration, I feel this is an appropriate venue to mention that last night I won a Mario-themed 3DS from Nintendo Australia. I have had my own since launch so I'm going to give this one to my little bro so we can one day play more Monster Hunter together. Thanks Raz.

    Guess that means I didn't win a toad one then..... How did they notify you?

    Hey cool, hopefully you find some good stuff to enjoy on it. Weird to purchase it for VVVVVV when the game's just fine on PC but whatever! I agree that it's awesome and worthwhile on 3DS too. If you like Resident Evil at all, or even if you just don't actively dislike the series, I definitely recommend RE: Revelations. And every 3DS owner should own Mario 3D Land and/or Mario Kart 7.

    1) I think everyone was concerned about this before it came out, but most people seem to be able to adjust to Kid Icarus pretty well. I haven't read a lot of accounts of people saying "well too bad, I hate playing this game and can never play it again." It takes an hour or two and a little tweaking of the settings and you should be fine. I'd even go so far as to say that if you do find someone with the game and get to try it out, you should play it as if you had purchased it and wanted to get used to the controls to validate your purchase. It may have an initial turnoff that is worth getting past.

    The story and characters are just awesome, feeling more like a classic Disney movie than Nintendo's usual approach.

    2) My assumption has always been that the games are not "complete" without being able to trade Pokemon, Nintendo doesn't want to sell an incomplete version of one of their most popular franchises, and the logistics of getting GB link working over local wireless just for an old game don't justify devoting a lot of resources to it.

    Or maybe there's something weird about their original license/agreement with Game Freak that complicates matters.

    Or maybe they're just waiting for a good major Pokemon release to help promote it.

    Nobody knows what might be announced at E3 in early June. Personally I don't see a new model as being very likely when they're selling the existing hardware at a loss and have a major new console release before the end of the year, but if you want to be absolutely sure, wait until after E3.

    I usually skip the second revision and get the third anyway.
