My Fantasy Life in English

Months ago I wrote about the decision to import a Japanese 3DS, and one of the reasons to do that was that I felt I had waited long enough for the game that Level 5 had released in Japan in 2012, and that didn’t seem to be coming to the West. (blog here). Lo and behold, shortly after that the western release was confirmed! I had a preview with my Japanese game and quickly decided that no matter what, I had to have this game in English too, because the game is that good!

So today was the day that I started my Fantasy Life in English, this time not only getting a feeling for the stunning visuals and gameplay, but being able to read more about the funny storyline and the entertaining quests too. Last time I chose the profession of the alchemist, this time I chose the life of a wizard, and I liked it much better. I felt like a regular little Gandalf whirling around my spells! I’ve been busy tackling a couple of s [...]

This morning's topic comes direct from Nintendo's Twitter account.



I need to try and remember what peripherals I have. I don't tend to use them often. :)

Smash Bros Wii U: 50 Must See Things

Postby Jonah » Fri Oct 24, 2014 8:03 am

Last nights Nintendo Direct was filled to the brim with new Smash Bros content. It's fair to say that Nintendo and Namco Bandai has truly gone to town on this one. I've added the ND video presentation below which is followed by a list of the 50 must see things that features in the video (thanks IGN for the list). :)

What are you looking forward to most about Smash Bros for Wii U? Did yesterdays Nintendo Direct help you influence your decision as to whether you will purchase the game or not?



1. More than 40 unique heroes will be available, with additional heroes available to unlock later.

2. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will have the highest resolution we've seen yet in the series.

3. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will support 8 players simultaneously, but only on certain stages, and only in local multiplayer. These massive battles will take place on much larger stages than we've seen in Smash games previously, in order to support all characters simultaneously.

4. These [...]

Afternoon Topic: How Much is a Theme Worth?

Postby Jonah » Thu Oct 23, 2014 2:31 pm



Nintendo has just made a new Skyward Theme available in Japan for 3DS, which got me thinking about creating another topic of discussion. Just how much is a 3DS theme worth? How much are you willing to pay in order to skin your 3DS firmware? At the moment Skin prices cost between 89p and £1.79, and even though I've bought 3 so far, I think £1.79 is probably too costly. Then again I've already purchased 3 so that shows just how fickle I am.

Evening Topic: Which Games Would You Give a Perfect 10

Postby Jonah » Wed Oct 22, 2014 4:56 pm

I have no time for games like Bayonetta 2 but it's interesting to see how reviewers rate it nevertheless. It looks like it will end up being one of the highest rated games to ever feature on a Nintendo console. This got me wondering about games on Nintendo consoles I would consider to be perfect 10's. The following games I consider to be perfect 10's:

Ocarina of Time
The Windwaker
Twilight Princess
Super Mario Galaxy 1&2
Metroid Prime

Please share the games you consider to be perfect titles. I may be able to add more to the mix later on. :)

MK8 DLC Pack is Almost Here!

Postby Jonah » Wed Oct 22, 2014 4:04 pm

I can't wait to play the new DLC pack for MK8 coming this November. I pre-ordered the DLC in August and I'm excited because the long wait is almost over.

If you're a fan of Yoshi Circuit from Mario Kart Double Dash, you'll be pleased to know that a revamped version is one of 8 courses to feature in the November update. Other circuits coming our way are Wario's Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, and brand new F-Zero and ExciteBike courses.

Other new features come in the shape of three new characters. Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach will all feature.

The DLC pack will also boast 4 new vehicles - the Blue Falcon, B-Dasher, a Master Bike, and a Tanooki Truck.

Have members already purchased the DLC pack from Nintendo, or will you wait until release day to make your purchase? If you've decided not to purchase the DLC pack, then that would be good to know too. :OO:

Morning Topic: What Next for Nintendo Systems

What are you hoping for when it comes to Nintendo's next generation of consoles? It's hard to believe that 3DS is 3 years old already, and Wii U will soon enjoy its 2nd birthday. Please understand that I haven't started this topic because I want all new systems already. I'm just interested to see if folk have any sort of ideas in regards to what they would like to see Nintendo do next. You don't have to know anything about specs to take part. You may have comments to make about controllers, Nintendo's Wi-Fi network etc. Perhaps there are features about current consoles that you would love to see improved upon in the next console, or perhaps there are things you hate about the current generation which you would like completely discarded. Feel free to share your thoughts. :OO:
