DTFaux commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

My orders were cancelled too. You know things are bad when you cant even count on pre-orders...

But I'm SUPER hoping Nintendo will better handle supply and dates after this holiday season. I love the adventure of collecting amiibos, but I dont like having to scramble to get them. In this day and age, I shouldnt have to keep calling up stores, second guessing their stock systems and release dates.



DTFaux commented on Miyamoto Talks Up Star Fox Wii U's "Fun And Un...:

I would love if we finally got a Star Fox game in the style of 64 again. Like new missions with the branching path mechanic. Really, the only time I wanna see Fox and crew out of their machines is if we get to use Smash Bros Fox and Falco to fight on foot. I just hope that whatever the Wii U version has, it's not too impractical or at least has traditional controls available.

I also wouldnt mind that the Star Fox games are light on story. Looking back at Command and Assault, they werent too strong anyway and distracted from the gameplay. I do believe that they should bring back the comics (or even make a cartoon) to cover the lore of the Lylat system. Snappy dialogue in the games, fleshed out stories in the comics.



DTFaux commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

I've been on the lookout for Captain Falcon and Pit but there's no word on when NA stores will get them.

As much as I love collecting, the hunt is turning out to be a bit stressful and tiresome, so I'm making absolute certain to pre-order wave 3 so I can just sit back and let the figures come to me.



DTFaux commented on 3DS Brawler One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X I...:

Man, Zoro as Link and Sanji as [Smash Bros.] Fox is SUPER fitting. Luffy kinda fits as Luigi, and that would only benefit more if Ace (sob) had the Mario costume. Now I'm curious what other One Piece characters would look like in Nintendo costumes. :V



DTFaux commented on Nintendo Dismisses Rumours That The GameCube C...:

It is a shame that in they're so short stocked in probably the most important season of the year.

I know planning and production isn't easy, but what have they been doing since mid-summer when both amiibos and the adapter was announced? Or did they simply not expect demand to be so high?



DTFaux commented on Video: Use Your amibo Figures Without Removing...:

@Quorthon I was just thinking that I'm getting a huge "Beanie Baby bubble" vibe from this. Only difference is that unlike Beanie Babies, Nintendo, as a brand, holds a lot of value so their products rarely go down in value too much.

You're still right in the fact that if everyone is keeping them in box/with the intention to resell, they're definitely not gonna be worth as much. Most things that end up being worth a lot (Hundreds to thousands) are usually accidental and not until YEARS later, if they're even still sought after.

The only ones with long-term and short-term value will be the 3 discontinued ones, ones with intentional/reported limited printing, or a 100% complete collection.



DTFaux commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I'd say that if you can afford the price inflation right now, just go for it. If this rumor is true, at least you'll be paying 3-4 times the amount as opposed to 8-10 times if/when Nintendo confirms discontinuation (not worth the risk, IMO).

What would be cool of Nintendo, if this rumor does hold true, is if they at least sold the unpopular amiibos through their official online store to give the late comers a chance, and to take power away from the scalpers.



DTFaux commented on Feature: How We'd Like to See amiibo Used in C...:

I think it would be an interesting option to unlock post-launch DLC stages either via monetary purchase or scanning already owned amiibos. The latter would encourage the idea of amiibos benefiting multiple games and even reward current owners, while the former is an open option for those who cant/wont buy amiibos.

With this route across multiple games, amiibos will essentially pay for themselves (or at least increase their value).



DTFaux commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

@shigulicious I likely wouldnt have gotten the second one on the spot if I didnt go through so much trouble trying to even find the first one, honestly. It really was a ways to get there...

The only thing I can suggest is to check the local availability listing on the sites of your big chain stores. I called Target stores that said "Limited Availability" on their site and finally lucked out by the second or 3rd store.



DTFaux commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

Between the rare amiibos and hard to find adapters, I guess this is the Season of Shortages. :V

I do wonder how they could drop the ball with supply, considering they've been talking about this stuff since June. Unless they only started producing these accessories a couple weeks out from Smash Wii U's NA release.



DTFaux commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

@SheldonRandoms I cant speak for most locations, but here in the US, it seems like there's no availability for Marth amiibos online (unless you paid 3x the price) or in the immediate VA/D.C./MD area of about a 50-100 mile radius. I was lucky enough to find what I assume were the last two available at a Target and bought both of them only because of how much trouble it was to get to the store (farther than expected and super deep into the city).

Basically, if you're a fan of the "less popular" amiibos or are a collector, dont risk waiting around because Nintendo might restock it if you dont have to.



DTFaux commented on Sonic Boom is Doing Pretty Well!:

I've got mixed feelings about the cartoon. On one hand it's visually solid (though not spectacular). I love how casual the heroes vs villain aspect is and the fact that they have all the current game voice actors for the show.

On the other hand, I feel pacing could be improved and more care could be given to 2nd and 3rd tier characters. Unlike The Amazing World of Gumball and Adventure Time where every character has a unique thing to them and live on even when focus isnt on them, everyone who's not Sonic, his friends, or Dr. Eggman are practically forgettable in design and personality, and only exist when it's convenient for the plot/joke.



DTFaux commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

Considering how much he likes to have his hand in every pot during game development, it's hard to imagine he'd allow anyone else to spearhead future Smash projects. But at the very least, I hope he has some development notes for the next dev to step up. 6 years is a long time from now (and the time between Melee to Brawl to Smash 4), so we'll see how things go by then.

And like others, I would like to see what other stuff Sakurai could do once he's ready to get working again. Whether giving more forgotten Nintendo characters the Kid Icarus treatment, or if he has some original IPs he'd like to push.



DTFaux commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

I think amiibos already have a good value considering several are confirmed to work for 7+ games, rather than being tied to just one game/series. Even if you just get the "popular" characters from the Smash collection, you're likely covered as far as future games go. At the very least, Mario, Link, and Kirby.

And I think an amiiibo-required game would only fly so well if it worked with already existing amiibos, and not ones exclusive to that one game.



DTFaux commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Modificati...:

I feel conflicted about the game glitch video. If I was younger or had my guard down, it'd probably scar me for a good, long while... But watching it in motion just had me ROLLIN'!!

And I actually hope "Alt amiibos" aren't officially gonna be a thing, because I just KNOW I'm gonna want those too. But I do like the idea of customizing your own. I'm actually tempted to make the Gold/Silver trainer cap for my Pikachu now.



DTFaux commented on Guide: Getting the Most out of Your amiibo wit...:

It's good to hear that they can supposedly still learn new tricks at their Lv. 50 cap. And it's impressive how well they adapt up to the point where fighting them becomes an up hill battle for yourself. My Lv. 50 Mario actually 3-stocked me once, and the other matches where I do win, it's such a struggle just to get a hit in, he blocks and capes almost perfectly.

I really hope amiibo tourneys will become a thing. It'll be a whole different level of hype and excitement seeing the things you train fight for you.



DTFaux commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

Glad I pre-ordered mine then. Honestly, I didn't need it, but lord knows everyone has those friends who cant/refuse to play unless they're using a GCN controller.

It's kinda ironic that this adapter actually prevents folks to adapt. :V I acknowledge the benefits though (8-player Smash and especially tourneys).



DTFaux commented on Meta Knight amiibo to be Best Buy Exclusive in US:

@Yoshis95 Dirty is having a million and ten pre-order bonuses available at 7 different outlets for the same game (that may or may not have that DLC publicly available at a future date). Dirty is forcing the delay of a multi-plat game on other consoles so you can get it on yours first/at the same time.

This is more arbitrary, as while the exclusivity for something like amiibos is unnecessary, you at least still have the choice/ability to go to these stores (or buy online). The main folks effected the worst by this are those who have a vendetta against these big chain stores (for hopefully good reason), and those who want to save a couple bucks on bulk shipping.

Edit: All this said, I'd rather these figures not being held exclusively by store.



DTFaux commented on Captain Toad Producer Says Nintendo Never Full...:

IIRC, wasnt it also confirmed (or mentioned) some time ago that Yoshis and even Kirby are genderless? And that we just give them the s/he pronouns because calling them "it" is just too weird for us?

But also, considering the Tomodachi Life incident, and how much of a hot-button issue the mere mention of gender/race/sexuality is on the internet, I don't blame them for trying to be ambiguous about this.



DTFaux commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

I'll likely get all of them whenever I can afford them. I like the idea of having a long shelf full of these amiibos stretched across an entire wall. On top of that, lord knows what features will be available in future games. Might as well get all of them.

My first (and possibly main) will be Mario, though.



DTFaux commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

I think part of what did Little Mac in was his reveal trailer. It built him up to be so OP that noobs forgot about the FREQUENT emphasis that he has a poor recovery (and I bet fewer even knows he has a wall jump).

Though I do wonder how much better his chances are of winning once folks have a C-Stick they can mash on?

@Luffymcduck I'd argue that Little Mac's aerial moves are the most hilarious to land, only because most folks don't expect it to happen. But you can actually get a few KOs with a well timed f-air, or if you really wanna disrespect, fall with your opponent spamming your neutral air.

Most Little Macs (rightly) anchor themselves on the ground, but the ones that are not afraid to leave the ground are the ones people should fear most.



DTFaux commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

The kicker is that negative reviews on purposely-made, less than stellar games probably helps them more than it hurts them. We live in an age where folks are willing to pay hard earned money to see just how bad/how much of a clone these games are.



DTFaux commented on Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Demo Available N...:

Been playing the demo for a bit. So far, it feels kinda basic: Keep running as one character until you need to switch to one with a specific ability.

I guess I'm definitely part of the "Gotta go FAST!" camp. Will we ever see a play style like Sonic Advance 2, Sonic Rush or the Unleashed daytime stages ever again?



DTFaux commented on The Original NES Duck Hunt Is Coming Soon To T...:

@vamkar Yeah, at this point, Duck Hunt should get the KI:U treatment. And with the incredibly low chance of us ever seeing Banjo-Kazooie on Nintendo consoles ever again, what better team to do a new open-world platformer/collect-a-thon game with?



DTFaux commented on Video: Catch Up With Nintendo's Super Smash Br...:

I was in the very first match of the tourney. I wont lie, I'm kind of a bit bitter that of all the stages to fight a Kirby in (I was ready for just about any character and stage BUT him and Paper Mario). Especially considering it seemed that most of the following matches had decent platforms and/or little transition.

Salty Johning aside though, it was an overall fun time, watching the matches were pretty hype, and if Nintendo ever hosts another tourney, I hope I can make it to the Nationals again! Fingers crossed for Wii U Open



DTFaux commented on Animal Crossing Content Is Coming To Monster H...:

In retrospect, perhaps it wasn't the best idea to paste Isabelle's model over a Felyne's animation. :V

But man, either Capcom REALLY likes money, or they really NEED money to be doing so many cross-overs in, what is basically, their best selling franchise.



DTFaux commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

I see folks getting paranoid going "What else might've been cut from the Wii U version??", but I'm pretty sure the answer to that is, "Not much else, really."

Think about it, the only things Smash 3DS/Wii U seems to share are characters rosters and a couple of stages. Aside from the roster itself, how would the 3DS limit what exclusive stages, modes, and songs the Wii U version would have? Those would be considered INCENTIVES to get the Wii U version.

Additionally, if we had to sacrifice one character for a PORTABLE SMASH (something of many kids' dreams since the N64 days), so be it. And yes, I'd have gladly given up my 3 Brawl mains (Mario, Yoshi, Capt. Falcon) for Smash on the go. Heck, until a couple of months ago, Capt. Falcon didn't even seem like he was gonna make the cut and I was willing to cope.



DTFaux commented on Nintendo Announces Super Smash Club for Canada:

I was mentioning on another site, it seems like we're one step closer to officially endorsed, nationwide tournaments (almost like the E3 invitational and Comic Con tournament).

If Nintendo really wanted to, they could push annual competitions on nearly the same level as the Pokemon World Championships. I mean, tourneys like EVO already exist, might as well get folks jumping into your own boat.



DTFaux commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:

@Bowser1027 @metace13 Now that I'm done I can tell you my ultimate secret that might've helped me: The first 4 numbers/letters of the NA codes seem to be all the same "A05V". So having them pre-typed saves you all that extra time for the other 12 characters. Also, if you make it through to the download page, click the bottom right corner like there's no tomorrow!

Best of luck to everyone else, and thanks to those so far who've been generous with their codes!



DTFaux commented on Dan Adelman - Nintendo is "Very Much Aware" of...:

I'm also in the camp that's sure we'll get a unified account sooner or later. There's no way they're not working on it as we speak, but I can imagine that one thing that's stopping Nintendo is on how to implement such a system while preventing folks from abusing it. I've seen a good amount of people who have no problem sharing an account with tons of people if the system allows it.

If we do get this system, I hope folks don't complain if it comes with some kind of DRM or rule that you can only link one 3DS/Wii U at a time.
