ASonic3582 commented on Dark Pit and Palutena amiibo Are Retailer Excl...:

Exclusives don't necessarily mean less stock, just means you need to go to a specific store. For example, Marth sold out within an hour during the Target restock in the US over the weekend, whereas Rosalina lasted the whole day and Jigglypuff is STILL available as I write this comment. Toys R Us got an average of 100 Greninja per store, and there was likely a grand total of 100 each of Robin and Lucina in every state. Best Buy got a decent stock of Meta Knight during the restock and expects an average of 100 Dark Pit per store. Gamestop had decent (for the characters obscurity) stock of Ness and Shulk during both rounds, but even after 2 shipments of Ike couldn't even meet their preorders (well some of that was due to uninformed employees) point is exclusives have decent at their stores whereas some amiibo that are universally available vanish in instants namely Fire Emblem but still.



ASonic3582 commented on Dark Pit amiibo Exclusive To Best Buy In North...:

@NintyMan I think a reasonable guess for Palutena's exclusitivity is Walmart. Wave 3 had Shulk, MK, Lucario and Rosalina as exclusives at Gamestop, Best buy, Toys R Us, and Target respectively. The Mario series had Gold Mario as a Walmart exclusive. Wave 4 had Ness, Greninja and Jigglypuff as GS, TRU, and Target exclusives respectively. And now Best Buy picked up Dark Pit as their exclusive. So to date the exclusive count is as follows
Best Buy-2
Toys R Us-2
So it's most likely Palutena will be Walmart since they haven't had more than 1 so far.

I just want more games to use my Pikachu amiibo. Seriously 3rd best selling amiibo, mascot of the 2nd most popular IP, and still no support outside Smash? Well that and to stop the exclusives since they cost me the chance to get Lucario, if Dark Pit, Palutena, Falco, or Mewtwo is exclusive I'll be pretty mad.

The negativity here just screams "This is why Nintendo doesn't make new ips often". Seriously Steam got so much hate for not being Golden Sin (which isn't even remotely related to Intelligent Systems other than the Nintendo logo) and now people complain about this asking for Metroid. And here I thought Splatoon made people willing to try new IPs.

@Ogbert completely agree with you. STEAM id a horribly underappreaciated game. If Nintendo has to force amiibo bundles to get STEAM the attention it deserves than let them.
Also PSA for NA, many rare/unicorn amiibo, namely Villager, WFT, Rosalina, Lucario, Captain Falcon, Ness, and Jigglypuff, have updated CISPAs with added production runs. Possible restock incoming?



ASonic3582 commented on Nintendo Unable To Promise When It Can Remedy ...:

I say this on every amiibo story and I'll say it again. Toys aren't as easy to manufacture as games, of course there gonna stick primarily to characters who appeal to everyone like Mario and Pikachu. On top of that, and again I say this every story, but Skylanders had the same issue from launch day until Giants came out. That was a full year, so as such amiibo will most likely have the same stock issues until next November, be patient.



ASonic3582 commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

Am I the only one who remembers that Skylanders and Disney Infinity had the same issues of no supply and ridiculous demand (heck Wham Shell from the 1st Skylanders is still worth a few hundred on ebay) for the first year of existence? The toys to life genre seems to be by nature a demand>supply situation with the toys for a year or 2 as the developer tries to get enough of every figure to stores (which by that point the sequel is out with newer, better supplied figures), though I'll wait and see how Lego Dimensions toys play our before accepting my hypothesis as fact. At least amiibos only unlock fully optional content for games (as opposed to the others, which requires them), and Nintendo's trying to get figures back as they become relavant in more games.



ASonic3582 commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I completely agree with quite a few of you, parents should be the ones to decide what their kids can play. While I'm never thrilled to see parents come to my Gamestop buying gta or cod for their kids (especially the hypocrites who yelledat me about my age the first few months I worked there), it's the parents decision and others can't dictate how they raise their kids.



ASonic3582 commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

You know being an assist trophy can help a franchise a lot. After all Brawl had Little Mac, Issac, and Saki as assist trophies, and within 2 years we got a new entry and generally more popularity for each of those series.



ASonic3582 commented on New Pokkén Tournament Controller and Gameplay...:

For everyone complaining about no confirmed Wii U plans, calm down! BN has been this way with Tekken for quite a while.
Tekken 6: started on arcades, came to console a year later.
Tekken Tag 2: started on arcades, came to console a year later.
While Pokémon are the stars, this is still a Tekken game. BN likes to give this series time in arcades before launching it on console. Just be patient, I'd assume mid-late 2016 for the console launch so they can clear the arcades for Tekken 7 before launching that on PS4/XB1.



ASonic3582 commented on Super Smash Bros. Pro Players Tackle the Probl...:

So what I still don't get.
Pikachu dominates 64 scene, everyone complains he's broken (and still do).
Meta Knight dominates Brawl scene, everyone complains everyone complains he's broken.
Diddy Kong dominates Wii U/3DS scene, everyone complains he's broken.
Fox dominates Melee scene, everyone's somehow fine with that.

This is getting out of hand. First Wii U owners had to pay the same price for little to no bonus content if it came out at the same time, and more if the Wii U version came out later (90% of 3rd-party games), Then they charge more for it with the same content situation (Deus Ex and NG3 in NA), and now they still expect us to pay full price for half-hearted versions (BAO and pretty much every EA game). No wonder the Wii U versions sell horribly.
