    A proper Smash Soccer/Football with online MP would be gold.

    remember last time when nintendo released a special edition DS right before they abandoned it for the 3ds? :creep:
     
  13. If the football game in this is anything like the one from Mario & Sonic 2016 Olympic Games then it'll be simplistic as it can be. The definitive Mario Smash Football game still is the one on GameCube.

    at this point, it feels like they should cut another 20 to 30 bucks from the retail price. would probably do them good

    Nintendo first started to do Amiibo cards with that Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer game. It also works with the game on Wii U. 400 cards in all to collect.

    I'm not into limited edition game systems but the Pokémon Sun/Moon system looks better to me. The novelty of the design will wear off eventually and you may change your mind.

    I'm glad I own a standard new 3DS that has removable cover plates.

    I loved my Yellow GBC, that's pretty dope. Something about unique colored factory shells I like. They should have made every color of GBC as 3DS's at launch.

    Since I go the dough, it's time to buy and resell at a hiked price! :evil:
     
  21. Video games for non-businessman/woman shouldn't be about making an investment but if they do sell out and the buyer doesn't backtrack then no one can really say otherwise. I've pre-ordered two Limited Edition Zelda BotW sets so that I'll resell the statues/games individually and use that $ towards covering the cost of the Pro Controller or whatever.

    It's Nintendo's fault for overcharging.
