The article states that fro the 13th-15th that its streetpass weekend and one can collect upto six streetpass tags. Well, last weekend I stopped at Best Buy and I received 9 different tags! I'm serious, then Monday morning I had a doctors appt. and afterwardsnI stopped at Best Buy again and got either four or five more tags, those tags were from the same people I tagged on sunday. I typically don't go to Best Buy, heck I really don't go out shopping hardly ever. I keep forgetting about receiving streetpass tags at different locations.
What is the actual deal? Why did I receive so many last sunday and then again on monday? I need to keep stopping at Best Buy and I know McDonalds should be a streetpass tag location. What other retail stores are involved?
I bought the Majora's Mask "Dire Moon" theme. I did not want the golden one because I am getting a regular black 3ds and it seems boring. The Dire Moon theme plays a very beautiful version of The Song of Healing in the background and it is quite pretty to look at. Definitely a good buy if you are into the 3ds themes like I am.
Definitely getting that Majora's Mask theme, mayyyybbbeee getting AC IV Black Flag, I haven't played an AC game since the first one (which was okay but didn't really grab me), but the Wind Waker sailing aspect of this one seems really appealing!
This game runs well on the Wii U right? I remember AC 3 had really bad framerate problems but I seem to remember this one was a more polished game.
I tried out the single player demo level of Ironfall: Invasion just now, and it didn't exactly make me eager to buy the full campaign. I really wanted to like this game since I'm a fan of ambitious projects made by small and/or unproven teams (hey, I thoroughly enjoyed The Conduit back in the day), but this is not for me.
I mean, it's quite impressive for having been made by what I believe is a three man team! The graphics are crisp and clear with nice lighting, decent texture work and effects, and the different parts of the hotel the first level takes place in were varied enough. The music was surprisingly good too, for a game of this type.
The rest of it worked less well for me. First off, I expected to be able to play the game just fine using my stylus since I used to play Metroid Prime Hunters, Moon and the like without any trouble whatsoever, but Ironfall's stylus controls are sluggish as hell! Minor adjustments while aiming worked perfectly, but as soon as I wanted the character to turn in the slightest it all felt like he was stuck in syrup. Because of this I was screwing around with the stylus all over the place to such an extent that the camera made me feel nauseous, and I think that's a 3DS first for me. Playing with a second circle pad should work better, I guess, but it's probably still gonna be sloth like.
Also, the voice work wasn't too hot. I didn't expect anything special from an indie game like this, but when enough lines consist of thinly veiled exposition read straight off a piece of paper I kind of don't want to listen to it. Plus, who the hell gives himself verbal pats on the back every other time he manages to reload his gun successfully? Bah! Gah!
Haven't tried the multiplayer yet, and I doubt I will since I'm likely to throw up all over my 3DS in the process.
