Folkloner commented on Wii U System Update 5.3.0 Adds amiibo Settings:

@jboy1807 ...ummm no. I think it's perfectly reasonable to ask for an amiibo save data back up system/device so I shouldn't have to delete my Smash amiibo data to use the figure in a future read/write game.

I'm not asking for much, forcing a user into a position where they must decide to lose their save data, buy the same figure again, or a different one altogether is at best, inelegant and not consumer friendly, and at worst, a cynical money grab.

You should be calling Nintendo on their flawed system not making excuses for them.

@SanderEvers

(1) I understand why the amiibo figures can only hold a small amount of data but that's all the more reason to have produced a powered, physical amiibo backup device for long term storage of that data so you shouldn't 'have' too opt to delete it or not in the first place.

(2) You say you'll have to buy other dedicated amiibo to read/write to different games. If that's true then why did Nintendo say that to use the Smash amiibo (with save data on it) with a different read/write game then you'll have to erase the data already stored on it.

That alludes to at least the existence of or possibility that other read/write games will utilize the Smash amiibo figures.

@NintendoMan94 - Smash amiibo's will work with Hyrule Warriors, MK8 whether they have Smash data on them or not because in those games their just used to unlock features. If Nintendo decide to make dedicated Mario Kart figures that unlock more than just costumes then that's such an inelegant solution as you have then have multiple types of the same figures that do different things.

The way to do it would be to produce ONE amiibo per character and sell a powered 'amiibo backup device' separately so you can save data held on amiibo's for the long term - meaning you wouldn't

(a) Have to erase data on an amiibo to use it in anothr read AND write game
(b) Optionally produce additional dedicated amiibo figures for other games.

I know you aren't saying it but if anyone can say why the current set up is superior to the one i outlined above, i'd love to hear it.

Folkloner commented on Wii U System Update 5.3.0 Adds amiibo Settings:

Hearing the news that each amiibo can only read and write to ONE game at a time is just so depressing. Currently Smash Bros. Wii U is the only game this happens with, the others only use the figure to unlock stuff in-game but the scenario is that should another game with read/write amiibo functionality be released, you'd have to decide whether you ERASE your Smash amiibo data to use your figure in the other game.

Limits like this really sap my interest in the figures, can't we have a way to 'backup' amiibo save data at least? I don't see an option for it in the amiibo settings, how can Nintendo not realise it yet that people aren't going to be happy about having to delete their Smash amiibo fighter to use the figure in another read/write game.

@Dawn-Shade Same here. I used Plex for awhile until I had a problem with it and couldn't get it working again.

PlayOn has less of quality in the presentation department in comparison and it's annoying that I have to cycle through the options to get back to the Folder that contains my Media but it works without issue (for me) and i'm happy with it.

Folkloner commented on Nintendo Confirms Appearance, With Wii U and 3...:

I can only make the Friday. Can anyone confirm that (1) Nintendo games will be available to play that day (B) NintendoUK will be active that day.

Need to know fairly urgently. Anyone want to be a lifesaver?

@dizzy_boy You just may be the person who can answer this for me, or at least tell me what has happened at previous events..

Another example of dev's being economical (excuse the pun) with the truth. The only reason to not bring it to Wii U is profit margins. Why can't they just say

"the user base is too small and we don't think we'll make enough money off of it to justify the cost of development"

That's fine, just say that instead of the confusing nonsense they often come out with.

Already own Friday Monsters and Starship Damrey, the latter of which was disappointing. Picked up Liberation Maiden right after the N.Direct broadcast. I know it'll be short and sweet but you can't go wrong at these prices.

Folkloner commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):

I know it is January, a typically slow month, but Nintendo's promise that there would not be a Software drought in 2014 really rings hollow when they can't even get anything out on the digital side, let alone retail.

Chibi Robo: Photo Finder is already out in the states, it's ready to go Nintendo, why oh why can't you slot that in this week. Crazy, just crazy.

Folkloner commented on Video: Xbox One vs. Nintendo 64:

Well i'm convinced. :) I seriously would purchase a brand new N64 over an XBone right now, simply because it's got so many more games I want to play. Call me when XBone has a Road Rash 64 equivalent ( the forgotten N64 Multiplayer classic!)

Folkloner commented on Nintendo 2DS is Actually Made With Just One Sc...:

I get that its for children, thus not having a clam-shell design means they're less likely to damage the hinges...but, the point of the hinges is so you can close the system to protect the screens. In the 2DS model, the screens are totally unprotected meaning all you've done in that respect is traded one potential issue for another.

I'm lucky in that i live in a country (Wales) with only 3 main cities, all of which are relatively close to each other and 2 of which have very active StreetPass groups, ensuring that at least once a month I can score a ton of hits and make progress through the games.

Folkloner commented on Review: Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS):

A decent review, although a paragraph or two on the multiplayer experience, increased customisation options and added gameplay features available on the new island should have been included.

Other much needed changes:

1. A tag or hashtag system so you can follow trends
2. Increase 100 character limit
3. Enable gameplay video posting for regular users
4. Opt in - Out out option as to whether or not you
want to receive notifications from other users who
comment on posts you've yeah'd/commented on.
5. Additional colors and drawing tools
6. Decrease Activity Feed load times.
7. A system to challenge bans or post deletions,
or at least allow you to present your case.
8. Profile Page designs. These could be unlocked
after a certain number of posts, yeah's given, time
spent in the app etc and could be in the guise of
various Nintendo characters/franchises.

Folkloner commented on Review: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U):

Disappointed they removed sub-objectives. I feel they added variety to missions and tested a player's knowledge of the environment, not to mention they helped prove a team's organisational skills.

Still awfully excited for the game and think that similar to NFS:MW's 'Co-Driver' mode the ability to still use the Gamepad Screen when using the Pro Controller allows for a second player to contribute by activating beacons, using items and typing commands on the on-screen keyboard for the other player.

Folkloner commented on Wii U Version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted U...:

I don't understand the logic here. They put it out on a system with a much lower install base than its rivals, so to attract buyers they add in the PC textures and improve the game with new features, include past DLC as standard but then attempt to undo their good work by not committing themselves to releasing future dlc.

Either do it properly or don't complain when sales aren't as high as you'd hoped.
