@counterclockwork87: Thank you for posting that! I was looking on Ebay a few days ago and all I was seeing were ones going for over $200 or ones that were marked as PAL, but weren't

I was kind of put-off by the fact that most of the listings were wrong, but this fine gentlemen has it sitting right on top of the box with a PEGI 7 rating! You have enabled my addiction sir. Thank you so much!

I picked up Inazuma Eleven when it was on sale for ten dollars a few weeks ago on the Eshop here in the US. I have since fallen in love with the series and want as much of it as humanly possible. I've already imported the second game since DS games will play on all DS systems.

This is where my issue comes in. I really want to play the third game, but it came out so late in Europe that Level 5 ended up putting it on the 3DS, which much to my dismay is region locked. The fourth game in the series has just come out in English as well, which I would also buy.

Yes, I realize this is insane, because I'd be importing a 3DS to essentially play 2 games (Possibly 4 if the other two Inazuma Eleven GO games get localized). My question is where can I import a reasonably priced European 3DS? Looking on PlayAsia I could get an XL for around $300, but I'd rather get a regular one for cheaper. They do have a hot Nintendogs+Cats bundle with a pink 3DS for $221, but I'd rather just get the 3DS.

Are there any other websites I could go to in order to make my insane import dreams a reality? Searching the UK Amazon I'd be able to get one for the reasonable price of $130ish, but they will definitely not ship it to the U.S.

Alternatively should I just get the Pink bundle off of PlayAsia to constantly remind me that I imported a European 3DS in order to play 2 games?

I think Jeff and Dan might like Ninja Scroll. It's basically just a string of fight scenes between a generic swordsman guy and a bunch of dumb villains, such as

  • Guy with stone skin
  • Lady made out of snakes
  • Girl who turns corpses into bombs
  • Hunchback whose hump is also a giant beehive (he's my favorite)

I may be imagining this, but I think they talked about Ninja scroll on something recently. Alexis was talking about how awesome it was and Jeff said he had seen and enjoyed it. Am I crazy, or did this happen?

Anyways, I've never seen Ninja Scroll, but you pretty much sold me on it.

It seems strange the game is available for purchase before the reviews come out. Thanks though!

Yeah, that's always been a bit weird to me as well. It makes sense though, because of time zones and all that fun stuff.

I would strongly advise people wait for reviews and or go to watch video to see for themselves. Neir was a solid enough game, the Drakengards have always been janky as hell, had characters that were less than likable, and had stories that made even less sense than Neir.

I did not know this, but I really liked Neir so I decided to pick it up. I've played like two hours so far and am just not really getting into it. It's definitely not helping that the frame rate is constantly terrible.

I've noticed some weird problems when I play with my dualshock 4's. All 4 people playing were using them, but one person was always winning. We took that controller and shook it quite violently, but it didn't even start to vibrate. While all of the other controllers we shook were out instantly.

This doesn't happen with the move controllers we were using.

I didn't know whether or not to put spoilers in the topic title, since this game has no story. I decided against it, but I know how weird people are when they get secrets ruined for them. So be warned about that I guess.

Yesterday I played SportsFriends for a few hours with a couple of my friends. For fun we looked at the trophy list and saw that all but two of them were hidden. I quickly went online to see what they were, and noticed a few of them I could not complete, because there are stages and characters that I don't have access to.

One of the trophies wants you to complete a match on the stage Rainbow Highway in Super Pole Riders. There are only four stages to choose from and that's not one of them. The same goes for playing as Kalgoorlie on Boxing Day. That's not one of the characters! Perhaps it's something that only shows up on that day, which would be kind of cool.

I'm just judging from these two things, but I'm willing to bet that there are at least a few more secrets waiting to be discovered. There's the fairly obvious one in Joust. In the options menu there's a password field that wants you to put in a special someone's birth year. If you put in Bach's birth year of 1685 you unlock the secret options menu, which has a whole bunch more stuff in it.

There was also the video on polygon today about the two secret games you can access from the main menu. To access "Get On Top" you press up, right, down, left, up, right, down, left, and x. You can also play "Wiggly Pong" if you put in the Konami code, which is up,up, down, down, left, right, left, right, o.

I haven't been able to find any cool stuff myself, but I was wondering if maybe anyone else has? I'm super interested to see if anything else can be uncovered. Mainly I just really want to see the rainbow level in Super Pole Riders.

Edit: It also looks like if you put 2014 into Joust you unlock something else. It pops up a message saying that you unlocked a mini-secret, but gives no indication as to what it is.

Just so everyone knows don't buy the Old Joseph Joestar DLC. You can't use him until they release the third campaign. Kira and Fatty are the two characters for the first campaign (Which doesn't even work in the U.S. yet for some reason). Since each campaign is technically a compatibility pack for the characters released with it, I don't really see why they would put him up for download. Maybe he'll pop up once they fix the campaign, but since there are only two DLC character slots at the moment I'm going to guess not.

I guess none of the DLC codes for Fatty from Amazon are working either, so this launch in the U.S. seems to be going super smoothly... Can't play online, can't play campaign, and an unusable character is up on the store.

The good news is that $2.99 per character isn't too bad.

I have had this exact same experience with both the original Dark Souls and this. I bought a new controller and it stopped happening altogether.

The game came from Amazon today for me. I'm super psyched. For what sounds like a lot of content the patch seems very small at 267 MB.
