I had forgotten just how good Wario Land was :wub:

I think I prefer it to Mario Land 2!

It's always been better than crappy old SML2. :)

IMO Wario Land is the best GB game ever released!

Just completed Mighty Switch Force.

If you don't already own it, you don't deserve a fucking 3DS. So go and buy it, you cunts.


YES SAR!

I'm waiting to see how Nintendo handle accounts when the Wii U comes out, because so far it's not terribly reassuring the current system of begging Nintendo for your games back if you lose your console/it breaks.

I downloaded a Zombie shooting game by from the Go series. Graphics are PUMP but it's really pretty good fun and controls well.

I also forgot just how hardcore the original Tetris was. What a difference it makes to the game when you've got no choice but to place that shape and there's no where decent to put it.

This is just in: Nintendo to create a new Seaman game for the 3DS, according to andriasang.com (http://andriasang.co...012/seaman_3ds/).

"Released by Sega in 1999, Seaman caused a sensation throughout Japan and became one of the Dreamcast's best selling games."


ORLY?

I think it's true, as this was already brought up in 2010, and is more or less confirmed by this report. Whether it'll make it outside Japan remains highly doubtful.
I have fond memories of Seaman myself. Particularly my brother laughing at me whenever I started to over-articulate to try and get a straight answer out of the bugger.

How long is the battery supposed to last on the Circle Pad Pro? I thought it was something silly like 300 hours but mine was completely dead last night after less than 10 hours use in total.

I knew it!
Wouldn't be surprised if they dropped a bomb or two, to steal some of the PS Vita's thunder.

I think it's great to see the Vita releasing and Sony continuing to support the portable market. Which I'm sure has absolutely nothing to do with this broadcast. :)

The Vita looks a great machine but I'm mainly happy because it means that Nintendo have to TRY, constantly. A over confident Nintendo is a shit, fuck you sideways Nintendo. The more competition, the more Nintendo has to bring its A game.

Don't get me wrong. I'll be getting a Vita at some point too (probably when they start releasing their PSTwo classics range on it), and I think that competition is indeed the best remedy against a complacent Nintendo. But it'd be nice if they did a surprise reveal tomorrow to counter the Vita's Euro release.

Sorry, my pervious post might have sounded like I was reprimanding you! I was just saying that I'm glad for the competition. :)

I definitely hope Nintendo have something up their sleeves tomorrow, my bet would be on a game that would appeal to the west becasue that is where the Vita is releasing. No point releasing more MH info as it's pretty Japan centric.

Who knows tho, Iwata could just be repeating how well the 3ds is doing now... :(

Hmm. Some sort of press conference tomorrow? That might explain what I saw earlier then ...

I was looking on the Nintendo Europe assets site to try to get a nice high-definition picture of the 3DS for a presentation I'm doing tonight. One of the items on the related products list on the right-hand side on there was called N3DS2 and was empty. When I went back to the main 3DS page it was gone.

http://assetslibrary...&entityTypeId=8 in case anyone else can see it - you may need to have login details though.

Hardware revision?

A scoop would be having grabbed a picture from the site, not just a page which said that I didn't have access to it. Looking in my history the page was at http://assetslibrary...wSku?skuID=2798 - can anyone else see anything there?

Me too.
But is there any way at all to save everything that's on the SD card though (stuff like Miis, games, photos etc.)?
