Nintendo 3DS

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Dec 03 2013 · 73 views

So... now that I have a 3DS, it is time to start listening for game recommendations. So I will list the games that matter that are currently in my household and as such do not need to be purchased:
-Kid Icarus: Uprising
-Mario Kart 7(even though it sucks)
-Super Mario 3D Land (even though it also sucks)
-Ocarina of Time 3D (this sucks too)
-A Link Between Worlds
-Pokemon X & Y
-Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
-Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
-Star Fox 64 3D
-maybe something else I'm forgetting who knows
Games I'm already planning on getting at some point:
-Fire Emblem: Awakening
-Animal Crossing: New Leaf
So... what other 3DS games should I look into?

That is one ugly picture, but the machine is a beaut. Much deserving of its place with me, considering that it will be taking the place of my 7 year old DS Lite that recently died (perfect timing, DS Lite... you were there for me until the end ;_;
Also totally had this conversation with Blade while trying to figure out how Club Nintendo works with downloaded games:

4:11 PM - Tex: sooo
4:11 PM - Tex: My product registration survey still doesn't work, but
4:11 PM - Tex: It expires November 22 2018
4:11 PM - Tex: That's nice
4:11 PM - BZP Blade: Wow. =P
4:11 PM - Tex: I'll just wait FIVE YEARS to fill it out xD
4:11 PM - BZP Blade: xD
4:12 PM - Tex: aaaah there we go it worked
4:12 PM - Tex: Now it expires January 1st 2014 though
4:12 PM - Tex: Laaaaame
4:12 PM - BZP Blade: xD

I ordered it online today, so it should arrive sometime next week! :D After two and a half men years I will own a 3DS, specifically a 3DS XL, since my hands are too big for the regular sized one if I wish to play for extended periods of time. 
Plus, I'll get the Zelda game I've wanted for years - seriously. Pretty much when the 3DS was first announced I thought "it would be totally cool if they remade the original Zelda for the 3DS with upgraded graphics and new features, with the 'pick a dungeon' setup". While ALBW isn't a remake of the original game, in my opinion, it's even better - because Nintendo has also fixed my issue with items in the past (virtually every) installments. ALBW is the Zelda game I have probably been waiting for my entire life.
And of course I've still got Pokemon X to play; I put it down for awhile since it's a little frustrating to rely on someone else's gaming machine to play. However, with this I will be able to exchange friend codes and play to my heart's content!


Pokemon X

Posted by Voltex , in Video Games Nov 26 2013 · 122 views

I'm kind of wishing I'd chosen the female avatar instead of the male one... there are so many more customization options available. 
I haven't touched the game much in recent weeks, mainly because I'd rather play it on my own 3DS, which has yet to exist. Hopefully there's still a Zelda 3DS XL available once I'm ready.
In other news, I have discovered that my old DS Lite is completely non-functional. So... I need the 3DS even more now if I want to enjoy the few DS games I have again. :P

Luigi wins by a vote of 8-4, emerging as our second "Best Character Ever"!! He earned it - the Year of Luigi really has paid off in full. 
Feel free to suggest themes for the future - who knows what three will be? (Although I must admit, there is one idea I'm leaning towards....)
Did Luigi deserve to win over Hades? Would Luigi have defeated any challenger he came across? Who knows - we'll see if he can advance to the finals again in the future.

Well, well! Here we are in the third round, and every single matchup is a question. Samus once again emerged victorious over Link, barely edging out the green hatted hero, while Luigi, Bowser, and Fox all decimated their Round 2 opponents. 
Now the question remains - will Luigi be the one to finally topple Samus from the throne, or will the bounty hunter rise once more to the Final 4? It might be his year, but Luigi has one heck of a job ahead of himself. Kirby and Ridley are both evenly matched, but the real questions lie on the other side of the bracket. After being defeated by Mega Man in the first round last time, Fox has been on an amazing winning streak, while Bowser has slammed two different Pokemon characters to make it this far - both have done quite well, but it's up in the air over who could win. Should Bowser win, however, one side of the bracket will be dominated by villains, and that could open up an opportunity for a good vs. evil final round, or perhaps a Luigi vs. Bowser one? 
These questions will, of course, be answered by you. You may vote one character in each bracket!
#1 Samus (Metroid) vs. #3 Luigi (Super Mario)
#6 Ridley (Metroid) vs. #7 Kirby (Kirby)
#10 Hades (Kid Icarus) vs. #21 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda)
#16 Bowser (Super Mario) vs. #20 Fox McCloud (Star Fox)

We've arrived at Round 2!! The matchup to watch this time is around is the rematch - Samus vs. Link. Will Samus emerge victorious once more, or is it Link's time to shine? Bowser might have his work cut out for him trying to take down another Pokemon character in Looker, who decimated Fawful last round. And lastly, both Ghirahim and Majora overcame their opponents from the Kid Icarus series at the last moment to edge their way into the second round - will their reign of terror continue?
Once more you may vote for one character in each bracket!
#1 Samus (Metroid) vs. #2 Link (The Legend of Zelda)
#3 Luigi (Super Mario) vs. #29 Ghirahim (The Legend of Zelda)
#5 Metaknight (Kirby) vs. #6 Ridley (Metroid)
#7 Kirby (Kirby) vs. #25 Wolf O’Donnell (Star Fox)
#9 Majora (The Legend of Zelda) vs. #10 Hades (Kid Icarus)
#21 Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda) vs. #22 Lucario (Pokemon)
#14 King Dedede (Kirby) vs. #20 Fox McCloud (Star Fox)
#16 Bowser (Super Mario) vs. #18 Looker (Pokemon)

Click the picture for a larger version! And if you aren't picture inclined, I have of course done up a text version of the bracket for you all. Things are looking pretty easy for Samus and Link thus far if previous trends are any indication, but Luigi might be in for a rough time! As usual, you can vote for one character in each matchup. 
Also, fun fact: Count Bleck has ranked #8 in both "Best Ever" contests.
#1 Samus (Metroid) vs. #32 Cyndaquil (Pokemon)
#2 Link (The Legend of Zelda) vs. #31 Guru-Guru (The Legend of Zelda)
