@Robo-Knight I believe every one will have at least three perfect IVs. I soft reseted a couple dozen times to get one with the nature I wanted and IVs I was satisfied with. Not sure you can get it with perfect IVs though. Good luck if you are going to try for that.

Ouch, they didn't show a single thing I'm willing to spend money or time on. Being an adult, I don't have time for games like these. Being a parent (of girls) my kids aren't going to be very interested in games like these. Pass all around.

Guess that leaves more money to save for a PS4, Star Wars Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0, games I do have time for and my kids will want to play.

CosmoXY commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

@Kaze_Memaryu You come across as pretty naïve if you believe that an executive making a living for at least the last three years in the interactive gaming and toys to life space doesn't know why a competitor's shortages are "a thing."

On Disney as a whole, I gave you several examples of properties that are beloved around the world, generally praised by critics and fans, and huge financial successes. Not to mention many of the examples I gave you have either been nominated for or earned top awards.

You haven't been able to give an example of Disney's "somewhat diminished quality." I will help you with that - Lone Ranger, Cars 2, John Carter. Sure, not everything that comes out of Disney today is golden. But it never was that way. For every Pinocchio there is a Song of the South, for each Mary Poppins there is a Pete's Dragon, for every Oliver and Company there is a Black Cauldren. Don't get me wrong, those movies all have fans and are considered classics but if you objectively look at the later in each of those examples you'll find that throughout the history of the company there are ups and downs. But given the examples from my post above I'd say Disney is in a pretty good place right now.

Now all that being said, I have no interest in any further back and forward with you. For you to dismiss my previous response to you as "pretty pathetic" shows that you are probably going to ignore thoughtful and reasoned dialogue in favor of hostile and rude language.

Have a great day!

@Kaze_Memaryu Ha, you must be right, I'm sure the guy has his position at one of the most competitive entertainment companies in the world because he's totally clueless about the situations of his competitors. Makes total sense.

As for struggling to understand the popularity of Disney and their products in the last ten years, I guess if you can't appreciate Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Toy Story 3, Up, Phineas & Ferb, Gravity Falls, Maleficent, Muppets: Most Wanted and the Marvel Cinematic Universe for example I don't know what to tell you. I'm sure hating on Disney is cool and all but in the mean time my family and I will enjoy Inside Out, Ant Man and Star Wars later this year.

@Kaze_Memaryu I totally disagree with you. Vignocchi is anything but ignorant. He's a huge gamer himself and a passionate game developer. You have a right to an opinion about the Infinity aesthetic, but just to be fair, there is a huge community of fans of all things DI. There's a widely held belief that Infinity figures are quality-made and good-looking collectables.

@Cyberbotv2 Considering your avatar, I thought you'd be interested to know that Vignocchi is actively working on incorporating Michael Jackson's Captain Eo into a future Infinity release. Could be fun to play as Elsa, Yoda, Hulk and Jackson all in one game!

@BradXCrayon Whoa whoa calm down big fella. That link simply shows that you're wrong that nobody wants Infinity figures. That product has been a big success for Disney no matter how you look at it. I'm not using it to compare against amiibo, never said I was.

@Tsuzura Not sure what your point is. We don't have any skylanders by the way.

CosmoXY commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

He's totally right. I've never had trouble finding an Infinity figure, and my family has the whole collection now. Amiibo on the other hand, we have two, weren't able to get some of the others we wanted and then gave up. Not to mention we just never found the game content offered with amiibo that compelling. DI is a ton of family fun though, so we're sticking with that.

CosmoXY commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I wanted to collect at least the Pokemon amiibo, but after importing lucario and then learning that Greninja and jigglypuff would be store exclusives I just decided to quit. Too much hassle. If I can't just walk into my local target and pick up the ones I want, no buy. Disney Infinity has been no trouble to collect and since my family loves Disney (and I love Marvel and Star Wars) we'll stick with that.

Looks like they are really hitting it out of the park this year. I hope the game isn't riddled with glitches, I had to restart my 2.0 game three times before the toy box hub was fully playable. The figures and playsets in 3.0 all look so nice, glad they're also including at least one Pixar playset, my daughters will enjoy that while Star Wars will really mainly appeal to me.

CosmoXY commented on Hands On: Disney Infinity Toy Box 3.0 Brings A...:

@Nintendian I came here to say how amazing I think the new toy box racing game looks, with Disney and Star Wars tracks and all. But then I saw the idiocy of your comment and just had to rebut. Pixar films went downhill after Disney acquired Pixar? All the Toy Story movies? Cars? Up? Incredibles? Brave? I can't saw I agree even one bit. Have you heard any of the buzz surrounding Inside Out?

CosmoXY commented on NPD Survey Outlines Bright Future For amiibo A...:

I'd like a "nintendoland" game too, to use with my two amiibo that I've bothered to buy. On the other hand, I'm pretty deep into Disney Infinity and with 3.0 Star Wars coming out I can't imagine anything being more enticing for my toys to life time and dollars.

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

I am unable to promise when I will ever buy an amiibo again. With Disney Infinity 3.0 coming later this year, I'm certain I won't be buying another amiibo as all of my "toys to life" money and time will be going to that.

CosmoXY commented on Updated Documents Point to Multiple amiibo Res...:

Haha, too little too late. With Disney Infinity Star Wars there's only one toys to life game that will be earning my dollars. Nintendos pitiful stock issues and lackluster game features, as it relates to amiibo, has killed any interest I ever had in their product line.

CosmoXY commented on More Disney Infinity 3.0 Leaks Emerge With Sta...:

I thought this was fake too. If it's not I'm surprised Disney would choose to focus a game on the old TV series instead of their current show Rebels. Makes no sense.

However, since discovering DI last summer, my kids and I have been hooked. I'm an adult gamer and Disney fan and I enjoy the game probably even more than my kids do. I also appreciate that all the characters are readily available in stores, unlike a competing brand of toys to life figures that I will not collect.

DI is not without it's flaws, but it is a very fun gaming experience, and the figures are all well made and nicely done. I will eventually get the next version, but have learned that if you wait six months you can save a lot of money.

CosmoXY commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

I was going to collect some amiibo, but after I paid extra to import a Lucario from Japan because I couldn't get one in America and now they've made two others that I wanted store exclusives, I'm out. They've lost me as a customer for these things.

I'm just one person, but I'm sure there are more like me that liked these at first and were interested in collecting some here and there, but are not interested in pre-ordering and driving from store to store hoping to find rare amiibo.

Thankfully Disney Infinity figures are plentiful and easy to find. I'm sticking with that game since my kids and I enjoy the gameplay and collecting.

CosmoXY commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

@Kaze_Memaryu I'm super glad that you are not in charge of any decision making at Nintendo. Your closed-mindedness about smart devices is definitely a fault and would not help the company in the long run.

Everyone needs to be cool. It's going to be just fine. Nintendo will surely create a strong smart device presence that will earn revenue and compliment their dedicated gaming platforms. This will only make Nintendo stronger.

CosmoXY commented on Character Art From Forthcoming Disney Wii U Ti...:

@Kaze_Memaryu you are certainly free to disagree with the Acadamy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, those people know nothing about quality film. (Sarcasm)

Sure, plenty of what Disney produces is dull or void of new ideas. But it's assinine to say that as a company they've "lost their edge."

Examples: Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Finding Mr. Banks, Maleficent, the Disneynature films. Not to mention the Pixar and Marvel films being produced under Disney. How about Gravity Falls or Phineas & Ferb? Or the upcoming Tomorrowland? I guess you must be right, no creativity at all.

And the Disney Infinity games may not be masterpieces, but they are quality family gaming experiences, no doubt about that.

CosmoXY commented on Character Art From Forthcoming Disney Wii U Ti...:

@Kaze_Memaryu what an ignorant thing to say. They've produced some amazing entertainment in the last few years. Two academy award winning animated films and the pretty good Infinity games just to name a few things.

On topic, the art style here does not look like DI at all. Definitely something new.

@baglady05 this story is a month old, you know that right? You also realize that not all products are available perpetually, right? Toys come in waves, often quickly replaced. It sucks, I'm with you, I'm anguished over my inability to obtain a Lucario amiibo, but that's how it is.

CosmoXY commented on Target Won't Be Restocking Rosalina amiibo, Se...:

I wasn't going to pick up Rosalina, but this just silly. There has to be a restock coming. Aren't kids a big part of the target market for these things after all? How are kids (parents of kids) supposed to get their hands on them when they sell out the moment doors open? I would like to pick up a Lucario but it doesn't seem like that'll happen either without a restock coming down the line.

@mega719 just because a developer doesn't do what YOU want, doesn't make it a "wasted opportunity" - that is one of the most overused and annoying cliches used by gamers.

@sonicman yes people actually like DI. My kids and I have sunk hours into both versions and collected dozens of the figures. Great family game.

@evenmoresteven we agree with you, more classic Disney playsets please!

@Pierson why would they need to give free VC games as an incentive? Doesn't seem like that would be necessary at all as these things are selling just fine. Sure it'd be cool for fans to get free VC games, but I don't think there's any reason for Nintendo to do that.

CosmoXY commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

This decision means one thing only to me: no buy. I have a 3DS XL that I upgraded to from my original 3DS, and though I do like it very much I have come to appreciate the smaller form factor of the original. I also thought the exchangeable face plates are really appealing. So I'll stick with my current XL for now.

Aside from that, great Direct! Good stuff overall.

CosmoXY commented on Little Mac's amiibo Appears to Have Actually B...:

@umegames Amiibo is entering into a competitive market with a brand new product, unlike Skylanders, a brand that is well established in this space. And Little Mac is at best a third tier character. There's every possibility that general consumers pass him by. Nintendo didn't want to gamble on overproducing so probably ordered a fraction of those compare to Mario, Link and Pikachu for example. And just because the first release sold out does not mean there are enough consumers out there to justify a second run. Chances are good that a second run of Mac, Wii Fit Trainer and others in this third tier would end up clogging store shelves.

@Quorthon And others - Amiibo is not a failure by any standard. Fast sellouts are good for business. This is only going to give Nintendo confidence to produce more amiibo and games that utilize them. No where in any marketing that I've seen does it state that all characters will be available in plentiful supply forever.

Trust me, I've been a toy collector for as long as some nintendolife readers have been alive. This is the way toy lines go, especially new ones. As a collector and fellow fan, I also feel your pain when that one figure you really want slips away. But keep your eyes open, watch for good deals on eBay, or even wait it out. After the initial enthusiasm dies down, people will start selling their collections and you'll be able to get them relatively easily on the secondary market.
