I highly recommend Gurumin for 3DS it's like the definitive edition of that game.


Can you go into any detail on why? I was looking into it, and while there’s not a lot of information, it kinda sounds like, at least graphically, it’s the worst version. What makes Gurumin 3D stand out?

Yeah, I got on the waiting list already, I was just wondering after getting on the list, how long did it take for them to get back to you, and then what? They pay shipping both ways correct, so do they send a printable label, and did that come after your first request, or was there some back and forth? 

 

If you have shipped yours in, and haven't gotten them back, of course you can't speak to the return time, but you can say how long after opening a request, did it take to actually send them back? If it took a month, or more, I can see about ordering the analog sticks and changing them out myself, as it's an easy fix. I'm just trying to see how the long the wait might be, so I can look at other alternatives, but if it didn't take longer than 1-2 weeks to send them in, I can't see it taking longer than 1-2 weeks to get them back, as I'm sure they are trying to keep the turn around as quick as possible.

I don't get why they require sending in the switch unit itself in which seems unnecessary to me given that it's the crappy controllers that are the issue not the system itself. Also given that nintendo's repair service is hot  :censored:  garbage and over priced even free is too much for me to consider sending it in to them. When I had them repair my 2ds they left dust underneath the screen and left a small light issue for it where it looks like a lightbulb is lit up in there.  Very low quality for the 80$ they charged me and I honestly could have just bought a brand new system from best buy or anywhere at the time for that price without having to wait.

I only had to send in my controllers, not the whole system when I did it earlier.

Nintendo has never required you to send in they system for controller repair. I just got my repair done and it took least than two weeks for turn around time.

Not to be a smart ass, but the 3D effect makes it stand out. If you’re worried about graphics obviously the PC > PSP/Vita > 3DS. I think people are raving about it because it’s a quirky game that has fun combat and for less than $4 you could do worse. I just double dipped on it because I had briefly played it on my vita before the memory card crapped out. I haven’t played it yet but I am curious to see how well the 3D is done.

#9997 Zantra  

Posted 05 July 2020 - 05:42 AM

I think the 3D is done really well, and it also patches some bugs that were in the PC and PSP versions that never got fixed. It also has a little extra content added in, that was not found in the previous versions, if I remember correctly. I believe that it added some costumes and another playable character to the game.

I can't find any evidence to back it up.  But when I tried to send them in for repair they wanted the entire system at the time. But this was a while ago.  Or I just misread the claim steps at the time.

Yeah, since NoA started their official "drift" repair or replace program(In the US), I have not seen anyone state they requested their system, but early on I wouldn't put it past them to have made the request. Depending on when "N" decided what the specific issue was for the drifting, they may have thought hardware was a part of the problem, which in turn would mean they would need ones system as well.

 

Now this may seem unlikely, but the fact that "N" released the Lite, years after the fact, with the same janky analog sticks, tells me maybe not? The fact that they have offered a revised system(the Lite), with the same issues, tells me they don't care what the problem is, or have no clue what the problem is, either way, it's not a good look. Especially when the president apologies for the issues, while the EU has never acknowledged it, or offered free repairs to fans for an obvious issue.

I’m playing on a New 2DS XL, and even without the 3D, the graphics are fine. All you’re losing from other versions is resolution, as the original 2006 PC game was hard-capped at 30 fps. What makes it stand out for me, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is that it’s a particularly well-made example of a JP 3D platformer of that era. It’s by Falcom, and localized by Mastiff, so the degree of Japanese “quirk” is straight outta the turn of the century, if you’re at all nostalgic for that period. Because of the JRPG elements, it’s easy to compare it Zelda, and while it does feels like it sits somewhere in between that series and Mario in terms of platforming, the structure of the levels reminds me more of Ape Escape than anything else: find a switch in one room that opens a path elsewhere; long corridors that hide streaming in new areas, etc.

So for me, there’s an amount of nostalgia in play, as it really takes me back to the early Dreamcast/PS2 era, when devs were still experimenting with 3D adventure platformers. But this one just happens to be pretty free of the technical jank and bland art direction you saw in more forgettable Western takes. Think of it as a long-lost Dreamcast JP import you never got to try, that holds up a lot better than something like “Vexx” or “Darkened Skye” ;)

EDIT: I should also point out that, like Ape Escape, neither the combat nor the environmental puzzle-solving is as challenging as something like a proper Zelda. So for me and my 8yr old, right now, it’s kind of a perfect, breezy-summertime-adventure, a chance to dip our toes into something Zelda-like without having to think too hard.

EDIT 2: I see now that it looks like you were just asking about why this version is the “definitive” version, not for praise for the game itself. Sorry for the word vomit :)

That's why I've started putting games I'm interested in into my wish list, then I just look through that for sale prices. The deals section is too flooded with junk to look through for me.

Good call, though I wish they would implement a notification service. Then again if they applied that pro-consumer logic, they wouldn't be able to bait people into looking at another sale.

I haven't heard of any issues with the switch lite but that definitely sucks for if and when it does happen but its also not that old yet.  Supposedly no drift on new joy cons for the 2nd version of the switch but given that its not that old yet either there's still time for that as well.

 

For now I am just using a breath of the wild joy con I got on clearance at target last year since I don't see a reason to pick any up until they get the kinks worked out.

My Switch Lite has had zero drift issues after a full month of heavy use. Knock on wood. I'm super soft with the analog sticks compared to my PS4 and Xbox One controllers. Because, honestly it feels like the Switch Lite is always about to snap in half when I hold it.

Really disappointed I don't hear about Astral Chain more. I've gotten back into it over the weekend since I'm away and man, what a great game so far. I hate anime and anime artstyles but have absolutely loved this game. This is what should be talked about over Mario and Yoshi games LOL. A true system seller.

Some games will automatically become cheaper if you have bought other specific games in the past. Last week a game that was listed as 39 cents here was only showing as 10 cents for me because I owned some previous titles by the same developer.

It sold really well for a Platinum title (over a million units), it's already one of their best selling games. I am simply happy about that alone as a massive fan of PG. I imagine a sequel is a no brainer honestly, though they're pretty busy with other stuff right now.

First Platinum title I've liked. I've hated all their other ones. I really enjoyed Astral Chain so I hope it gets a sequel.
