Grimrock 3DS?

#102 Posted by jewunit (1062 posts) -

I am impressed by this push for Etrian Odyssey IV. The series has done pretty well for itself over the years. I've never been a big fan of the series, but I respect it. Nintendo apparently feels the same way.

Huh. NOA just updated their Twitter feed to mention a new Wii compilation of Kirby titles for Kirby's 20th anniversary.

As is pretty much par for the course for these kinds of things, there was nothing that was truly interesting to me. Was still cool to watch.

@Hailinel:

I know, but I guess this is just laying out the specifics.

OK, I have no goddamn clue what this next thing is. Dragon Quest? Etrian Odyssey? A Mana game?

It's Etrian Odyssey IV.

Ok, I guess there were some good announcements this time. The last one had nothing major. Well, for me anyways.

I really should play the Etrian Odyssey games, shouldn't I? D:

I just started watching. Could someone tell me what the stream has been about up until now?

I really hope Animal Crossing comes out this year for the US.

Wait, Pokemon Black and White 2 is coming out on the 3DS? Didn't they announce it would release on the DS?

@Snail: It's still a DS game, but they were just showing off some new stuff.

Did they announce which Kirby games will be in that collection? Hoping for Crystal Shards...

Crystal Shards was on the Wii VC, so it wouldn't surprise me if that makes it.

According to Andriasang, they will be "Memorial versions" of classic Kirby games. Crystal Shards could be included there, but no games were mentioned specifically.

@Snail: @JJOR64: Whoops, you guys are right. Sorry for the confusion!

I really wish Project X Zone wasn't a strategy game. It would have been great if it was an action or turn based RPG.

Making it a strategy game makes it much easier to handle the metric shitload of characters they're packing in.

What's Project X Z-OH MY GOD I NEED A 3DS. (And, presumably, knowledge on Japanese, but I'm working on that.)

Whaaaat, I didn't know that.

@Video_Game_King: Yeah, you should get a 3DS. There are great games out for it right now and there are a lot of great games on the way.

Wait, does this play exactly like Namco x Capcom ?

I'm also really excited for the folders feature. My Home Menu is going to be small as well now.

Speaking of folders, the Vita needs that feature as well.

So the Mario Kart 7 info was apparently about a patch to the game, along with patches coming for Kingdom Hearts 3D and Love Plus.

In other news, 3DS games can be patched.

Well, if DLC is a thing, then patches seem at least possible.

@WilltheMagicAsian:

No idea, as I've never played it.

Folders are a welcome addition. I sort all my Virtual Console games by platform already, as tightly as possible. When I download something new from the eShop, I then procede to shift almost every icon to the right to accommodate the new one.

Is it a turn based strategy game that, when you initiate combat, lets you use a certain attack based on what direction your holding?

That's what the screenshots look like to me.

Edit: Oh, maybe I should read the wiki page, yeah it does.

Is it for the Maka Wuhu glitch? Didn't Nintendo previously say they wouldn't patch it because it would give unpatched players an unfair advantage? It was never an issue of whether it was possible or not, but that it's possible to play unpatched.

I think that's the case. It sounds like the patch is shortcut-related. And frankly, I'm fine with it being patched. When I played online, it seemed like Maka Wuhu was one of the only courses most people wanted to play.

@Hailinel: Yes, abusing Maka Wuhu in multiplayer sucks and should be fixed. But if Nintendo's previous comments still hold true, the Maka Wuhu abusers could just avoid the patch and keep doing it.

That depends on how the patch is handled.

Just reading this comment out of context makes me laugh. That Maka Wuhu shit really fucks with your life. They got a nicoderm patch for that shit.
