...on my Wii or my 3 or my 3-6...
Well, here’s my old (lol) blogger/blog-spot blog that I am currently working to transition here to Tumblr.
A few pals of mine have been using Tumblr for some time and they tell me it’s pretty much the win.
Let’s hope they are right, eh?
According to GoNintendo:
Looks like we should keep an eye out on our 3DS for SpotPass messages. A 3DS SpotPass message has been sent out to a few people letting them know that details on the GBA games will be sent out in another SpotPass message.
Now I’d take this with a grain of salt… but… if you’ll excuse me, I need to check on my 3DS…
It seems that overnight, Microsoft announced the official release date for the new and revamped Dashboard on December 6th.
Aside from looking nicer, the new dash also has better (read: more deeply-integrated) voice recognition for Kinect users, while it’ll also be the same day new apps for things like movies and TV roll out worldwide.
Also worth mentioning is one feature I am really looking forward to - Cloud Storage for your profile and save files.
Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox LIVE gaming experience even when you’re not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your “game saves” securely in the Xbox LIVE cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console’s hard drive. Gone are the days of “gamertag recovery.” Now all you need to do is sign in, no matter where you are!
Cloud storage for save files and profiles will probably also make it easier to get going if for any reason you are moving/upgrading to a new Xbox 360.
This sort of functionality has been available on the PlayStation side, but only for PlayStation Plus members (which of course requires a yearly fee, like XBL). Thankfully there will be no additional cost for XBL Gold members to use the Cloud Storage. From what I understand, Xbox 360 users should expect to see about 500megs for their own use “in the cloud” once the new Dashboard rolls out.
The Fall 2011 Dashboard has been in wide beta testing since early November.
Kotaku is reporting:
Metroid II: Return of Samus sends the iconic bounty hunter to the home planet of the powerful alien race to exterminate them all. Fans of the franchise knows that the game sets up the even more beloved Super Metroid; you’ll be able to download it from the eShop in 48 hours or so.
So as it stands, I’ll be able to have the original Metroid (thanks Ambassador Program!) as well as Metroid II on my 3DS - 100% legally.
I do hope some solid information comes from Nintendo soon regarding the GBA Virtual Console games for us Ambassadors (I’ve yet to get any SpotPass notice regarding the GBA titles). I am really looking forward to that functionality…
