I guess the reason this s on Wii U instead of the 3DS is because Earthbound was not a portable game and the 3DS only sells old portable games (alongside original stuff of course). I would much prefer to play this on my 3DS though... m-mainly since I don't have a Wii U and I'm hesitant to buy one.
I'm glad I can save more money AND I can get the news faster, but man I love getting a magazine monthly and just reading the new letters, appreciating the layout and front cover design, and being able to read all the new stuff just in my hands while sitting on a couch or something. You got some cool free stuff too. I remember some would give away demos or cool little accessories, though some of them gave away some huge garbage.
I buy EDGE magazines now and then because I kinda like their layouts and I'm partly studying up on magazine design for my journaliism course, but that's about it.
I really don't know what to say. I was reading up on his marriage congratulations thread just the other day and now I wish I would have gave him my congrats too. Hell, I still wanted to go to America and meet this man. He's a huge reason of why my humour and outlook on games are what it is today, and I regret never taking the chance to see him in person.
