@wober2 I've been asking the PC port question since the Wii. The Wiimote as a mouse substitute seemed obvious to me. It might not work for every game, granted, but certainly a load of point-and-click adventure games would have been a fairly easy work. Plus, it could have further diversified the user base. Still could, really.

@rjejr I wouldn't be shocked if some form of amiibo support ended up in there, either as a surprise bonus, or as a patch later.
I'm pretty pumped for most of this list. Don't Starve, Trine 3, and Octodad in particular, but I'm overall excited at the wide variety of games we're getting.

I'm glad that it's almost here (and I do think it'll arrive alonside some news about a new AC), but it is odd that we got Pack 1, then 4 packs for Hyrule Warriors, and now are finally getting Pack 2. Yes, I know HW wasn't a first-party title, but still, that's quite a gap.

Captain_Gonru commented on Review: Adventure Bar Story (3DS eShop):

Interesting. I was waiting for a review before I purchased, so thanks. Quick question, though. In the unfinshed recipes parts, is it at all logical what your ingredients might be that you need? Like, if you have ham, lettuce, cheese and a knife, can you add bread for a sandwich, or would you need tomato, because they want you making a chef salad?

@rjejr I had the same reaction when I saw Interplay's name.
And good memory on Celebrity Deathmatch, though this predates it by a couple years. So I guess CD was Clayfighters minus an angry snowman. Incidentally, CD did have a game of it's own. It wasn't great, but entertaining with friends and a few drinks.
Also, everyone be jealous of me. I managed to get a copy of Sculptor's Cut when the local store was selling it.

I absolutely loved Trine 2. Both this, and the first one, will be day one buys for me.
Also, I'm not sure what the control issues are that a few people mentioned. I don't recall using the touch screen once, and found the button layout just fine. Different strokes, I supose.

Curious if anyone retweeted this to Nintendo yet.
And I'm with everyone else that says the only solution is to not buy from resellers. Though I do wonder at what point we aren't outraged by the practice in general. I mean, yes, this is the sale of a preorder, not even an actual product, so this is probably too far. But surely two years from now we wouldn't be mad at someone for selling amiibo well above MSRP, right? The entire collectables industry is built on rarity and price fluctuation (comic books, baseball cards, etc). So if two years is fine, is one year? Six months? I'm not offering an answer here, just asking a question. How much time has to pass before we're okay with this?
On topic, while I agree in principle with people like @hypercoyote, there is something, I don't know, slimy about promoting this in particular. Because it isn't the actual product, it's a preorder. If this was for Marth, or Wii Fit Trainer I'd be fine with it. But selling a promise, not a product, seems unseemly to me.

Interesting. The closest I ever came to doing something like this (and it wasn't THAT close) was some mapping I did while playing Zelda II back in the day. Beyond that, I have a couple notebooks detailing draft prospects and trade targets for a couple sports games I was really into from a few years back.

If they're going to do a Pikmin on 3DS, I'd rather have an original, as opposed to a remake. I think the touch screen controls from Nintendo Land's Pikmin game would work well, though you'd lose the 3D effect. Maybe save the top screen for cutscenes or something. But I agree with another poster, as I also didn't care for the Gamecube controls, opting instead for the Wii versions.

Captain_Gonru commented on Review: Mappy-Land (Wii U eShop / NES):

This is one of those games I enjoyed as a kid (when it was new), but then found "lame" when I picked it up again in my cynical late teens/ very early twenties. I'm sort of curious about what I'd think now, having been mellowed by the years.

I hate to be the guy pointing this out, but I think you meant "asymmetric", not "asynchronous". I would like to see more asynchronous games, meaning games where the players aren't playing at the same time, but asymmetric games, where each player is doing different things at the same time, are cool too.

The "store manager buying them all" scenario shouldn't be happening. Major retailers have buying policies for their employees. Report the offender, and they'll lose their job. Simple fix there.
Beyond that, @unrandomsam has the right idea. Flood the market, so that everyone who wants one can get one. If you opened pre-orders months ahead of time, you'd know exactly how many you need well before the release date.

@rjejr That is the one big downside with those themed sets. I had a similar issue with the Star Trek set when my buddy and I tried to play a number of years ago. Luckily, we were both having issues remembering which pieces are which (to be fair, I can't imagine the beer was helping).

I feel like I need to point out that the more they say how this won't interfere with games and hardware, the more I worry it might interfere with games and hardware.
Of course, I assume scalpers will by up all the sleep sensors and resell them for 10 times their retail price, so we won't have to worry about this anyways.

I would much prefer they reprinted the board games for each of these games from the '80s. They were fun, and actually reflected the games on which they were based. I'm still interested in picking up Nintendo-opoly, and maybe the Nintendo chess set, but neither of these hold any interest to me.

Captain_Gonru commented on Review: Flap Flap (3DS eShop):

@LunaticPandora Yes. It's called "don't buy them". While this won't get them removed, it may decrease the number of them that show up, should would-be "developers" see that the 3DS consumer base isn't willing to pay too much to get too little.

@rjejr The hands don't show up in single player. They mention it briefly in the manual.
I also didn't really think about the "lack" of use of the clay motif. To me, it was more of a means to an end, much like the interviews stated. Maybe it's because of watching a lot of claymation. Wallace and Gromit doesn't need to play with the clay medium to be awesome.

@AshFoxX The last time I saw anything for Vigilante 8 was on XBLA. I think it was a bit of a mash up of the original and sequel, though don't quote me on that part. But yeah, the "car combat" genre hasn't seen much love in recent years, aside from one Twisted Metal title for PS3. Heck, even MK8 omitted the stadium battles.
