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

So far I've been lucky enough to have all of wave one (all bought in-store) and Best Buy has shipped me Zelda and Diddy (have them in-hand) and Little Mac shipped today. Of course My Lucario was cancelled and I have yet to be awake in the wee hours of the night so I can pre-order Rosalina (whatever, Target) who is the one figure my wife really wanted from the outset. So so far I'm good, but if it keeps being some sort of adventure to just try and be awake and at the computer at the right moment to get one, I'm done (and I'm an inch away at this point...just not happy with how the stores and Nintendo are handling things).

GooRoo commented on Demand For amiibo Continues As Pre-Orders For ...:

@ultraraichu Yeah, that BB split for the wave 2 ship dates is strange. Is this everywhere? I fully intend to go Amiibo hunting on Sunday to see what's what at the big retailers around here (BB, Target, Wal-Mart, Gamestop, and HEB, a grocery store that carries these). I have mine pre-ordered from Best Buy (20% off with GCU) but want to make sure I get a good paint job, too...

GooRoo commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

Well, I went ahead and pre-rodered everything up for pre-order, which is currently all of waves 2 and 3 except for Rosalina, who Target does not have up yet.

For people worried about Lucario, who is currently the pre-order version of Marth: check in at Toys R Us every morning. I procrastinated pre-ordering the figure, and learned two nights ago it was out of stock. I woke up to find it available again at Toys R Us, ordered it, and it went out of stock later in the morning. It was back up earlier today and now gone again. It sure looks like Toys R Us is playing games trying to drive hype. Or maybe it's people canceling pre-orders. Who knows. But considering the shortage of Marth, etc., from wave one, people should get what they want when they can. Remember, you can always pre-order it online, and if it arrives with a bad paint job, look for another one in person and return the pre-order. If nothing else you have it, albeit with a bad paint job.

GooRoo commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Nintendo 3DS T...:

@Nik-Davies Exactly what I was going to say. Happy with mine, had it for a long time, but I would advise anyone to wait for the new model, unless they're made of money (though I have to admit I've been tempted by that Gamestop exclusive NES model just for the collector in me).

GooRoo commented on Guide: The Best Black Friday Nintendo Deals in...:

Not a good BF for me...was hoping to see Smash 3DS, Fantasy Life, and Pokemon Art Academy on sale. No dice as far as I could tell, so I just ordered them from Best Buy with my 20% off GCU. I did pick up a discounted eshop card from Best Buy as well. Oh well. I did stock up on PS4 games, enough to keep me busy until next BF (plus I have NES Remix Wii U and 3Ds versions coming next week, along with Captain Toad...).

GooRoo commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

I usually get a street pass in there, and they are much more knowledgeable than any other store around here. They are my first stop for Skylanders merchandise for that reason (I just get a blank stare at Wal Mart and Target never bothers to put their merchandise out half the time). Still, I buy most of my games at Best Buy because of a better reward program and Gamers Club Unlocked.

GooRoo commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Yup no bundle discount — something I was hoping for — and a real head-scratcher to push the Wii U version back that far when the system is struggling. Note that I say this based on the article and without having watched the direct — plan on checking it out tomorrow morning while I'm on the exercise bike. :)

I'll still get both.

GooRoo commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

I hope they offer a good trade-in value out of the gate. I have a copy of NBA Live 14 for PS4 just itching to take a permanent vacation from my home. :) On the other hand, I collect Nintendo titles so I won't be trading any in.

GooRoo commented on Ninterview: Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Norton and ...:

Amazing collection.

One of the biggest mistakes in my life was bulk-selling all my old games and gaming systems. I had nothing like this guy, but I sold everything up to the Gamecube and had maybe 60-70 NES games, 20 SNES, 10 64, and 10 GC. Sigh. I wish Nintendo would make retro consoles and cartridge games. I would love to have it all again. Most used stuff I find looks to be in pretty spotty condition.

GooRoo commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

And as far as horsepower goes, I think the Wii U's capabilities suit the Nintendo dynamic nicely. SM3DW and DKTF look amazing on the system. Maybe the system would struggle with something like The Order 1886 or MLB 14 The Show or any of these more detailed PS4 games — I don't know that much about the nitty-gritty tech specs and how they all work — but for Nintendo games at least, I think the Wii U has proven to be a very hearty and capable machine.

GooRoo commented on LEGO The Hobbit Questing Onto Wii U and 3DS in...:

This will be the first Lego game I don't buy on day one. Haven't seen the movies yet (waiting for a boxed set w/ extended cuts of all three) so by then it should be in the bargain bin anyway. Have way too big of a backlog, anyway (still haven't started Pikmin 3!).

GooRoo commented on Rumour: Next Skylanders Title Will Feature Veh...:

Looks like a new figure...the orange guy with two hammers!
My initial reaction to vehicle toys is a negative. I'm fine if they make vehicle toys independent of the game, but I don't really want a huge portal big enough for co-op players to each place a vehicle on it.
I was hoping the next game would just feature all new characters and new gameplay ideas.
Also, please no world building like Infinity.

GooRoo commented on Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars (3DS eShop):

I kind of glossed over this during the direct. I was more excited for Trozei and Real Deal Baseball. I've DL'ed the F2P version but haven't touched it yet. This review has made me decide to give it a shot. :)

GooRoo commented on Video: Animal Crossing Fails To Provide A Deci...:

I've seen two scorps, caught one and didn't get my net out in time to nab the other. I got stung instead and was reset at my front door! I lucked into the tarantula last night. It was sitting right in front of me as I exited re-tail. Before I even got to the museum one of my villagers offered to buy it for 10k. I refused and donated it. :)
