I'm really enjoying it so far. Gonna buy the full version.
Good for them, trying new purchase tactics. I hope it's lucrative for them, and that we see more of this in the future. It's sort of like having a built-in demo, but people are more inclined to buy.

This is crazy. It makes no sense for them to be truly discontinued- maybe temporarily unavailable due to production demands and new waves coming out. It makes sense for them to do new waves of these 3 in the future.

However, all signs point to yes. All retailers are out of stock around me. The Villager amiibo is in low stock at a GameStop near me, so I'm reserving it now.

Sucks. At least now I know I better pre-order all of the ones I'll want in the future.

@arnoldlayne83 I'm saying people hating on Hearthstone up in these comments are mostly sour grapes, using name-calling, rather than saying they feel Hearthstone's mechanics and gameplay weren't that tight or whatever compared with Smash. Instead it's just "a freakin' card game?!" Clearly, they have not played the game and know next to nothing about it.

All y'all hatin' on Hearthstone need to STFU. Criticizing it because it's "just a card game!!" is the same derogatory comment as Nintendo games are "just for kids!!"

Stop being hypocrites.

Also, the most important thing that Nintendo could have won was Developer Of The Year, and they got it. This award show went very well for Nintendo. It was very Nintendo prevalent. I dare say they got the most exposure out of anyone else that evening.

That's disgusting and I feel bad for my EU buddies. I say just be patient and get them later from a retailer like amazon.

There is a positive to this: Wii U is doing poorly in EU, yeah? I've read that some stores don't even have displays or areas for the games. Now that there is a bigger and bigger demand for Nintendo accessories and (presumably to follow suit) games, maybe the retailers will start giving it a slightly bigger push to exposure.
Sadly, money talks in these situations.

That's pretty cool to see Nintendo IPs dominating. Says something about the fanbase and strong appeal of Nintendo's characters.

...Though tumblr is quickly becoming the one of the worst places on the internet, there's still some good there.

DiscoGentleman commented on Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Wii U):

Nice review! Found it kind of odd that you kept faulting the title for it's lack of 2player in the form of a Wiimote or something similar. While I think that's a great idea, it's a bit unfair to the game, in my opinion. If I had a young child playing the game, I'd sit there with them and verbally help them out. Frankly, that builds better teamwork and life skills rather than just doing it for them. I think, unintentionally, this can be an educational game for the young, as well. And, as you mentioned, if they died too many times, they get an invincibility item.

@kobashi100 "underpowered" by what comparison? It is a relative term. Underpowered compared to value for money? No. Underpowered compared to PS4 & XB0? Yes. Underpowered as a dedicated gaming system to provide quality games? Absolutely not.

And just take a look at Wii U's games and appeal compared with PS4's & XB0's. They hardly are in competition with each other.

Maybe you missed my earlier point that console wars are only for the idiotic? Maybe you're part of that demographic.

DiscoGentleman commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

"Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, is yet another disappointing addition to the Sonic library, throwing out most of the familiar aspects that gamers love in favour of a watered-down, sluggish affair that often feels like a game based on a licensed property — as opposed to the next entry in one of gaming's most iconic brands."

This sums it up.

Still have the original cart of this :) It's a very in-depth battle system, which is really entertaining. If you're a hardcore RPG fan, this is definitely for you. You just have to be able to look past the unfortunate dungeon design.

The story isn't really mentioned in this review, but it's pretty good. Not ground-breaking, but it does hold interest. There is an over-arching story across the Lufia series, and this adds some good storytelling to the whole series.

Definitely recommended!
