@XCWarrior I'm from the UK so Yoshi has already been out for 2 months. Star Fox (20th November) and Xenoblade (4th December) are way too late to get excited about currently. The others I'm not interested in except Tri Force Heroes which is a maybe but only after I see 1 player gameplay (3 player co-op doesn't excite me). So yeah, it's looking like only Super Mario Maker until late November.

These things shouldn't exist, it's essentially pirating amiibo. If you're having so much problems finding amiibo why don't you import from Europe, where every amiibo except Villager and the Inklings are super common (I'm talking "finding a Pidgey in Route 1 of Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow" type common).

Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Confirms Xenoblade Chronicles X Panel...:

@ikki5 Fatal Frame V, Devil's Third, Xenoblade Chronicles X (not just a panel but also playable on showfloor), Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, Rodea The Sky Soldier. Last year's events (as in playable on showfloor) focusing on Smash, Splatoon, MK8 was perfectly fine given those games were either not yet released or had upcoming DLC confirmed to a specific month.

If I wanted to make a bet, I'd put a huge amount of money that EGX's lineup this year will be identical to this PAX lineup in addition to Xenoblade X, MK8 and Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival.

Grumblevolcano commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

@russellohh Of course you got that by buying either the 8GB or 32GB model and a 3TB external hard drive. I'm talking about memory space with the console itself, not the console in addition to extra purchases.

The competitors both have 1TB as the maximum space you can have without buying anything extra, compare that to 32GB for Wii U and the Wii U's memory capabilities sound pathetic as a result.

Grumblevolcano commented on Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To ...:

@rjejr I'd actually put "mentioning NX at the beginning" as the biggest problem, then 2 and 2A being Metroid Prime and Animal Crossing, 3rd would be no Zelda U, 4th would be knowing most of the Wii U games before the event and 5th being the huge focus on Super Mario Maker. All mentioning NX does is make the audience think you're abandoning Wii U very soon.

@Jazzer94 Tanabe confirmed NX is a home console with regards to the Metroid for home console debate. It might be a handheld but only in the form of both and handheld and home console at the same time.

Grumblevolcano commented on Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To ...:

@rjejr There were a fair few generic 2016 release dates for 3DS (+ 1 for Wii U) as well as 1 Spring 2016 so it wouldn't have been too far out. Here's the list of 2016:

  • Hyrule Warriors Legends (1st Quarter 2016)
  • Metroid Prime Federation Force (2016)
  • Fire Emblem Fates (2016)
  • GIR#FE (2016) (Wii U)
  • Mario & Luigi Paper Jam (Spring 2016)

Your logic of Nintendo wanting the Wii U to fail even worse to justify early NX release sounds reasonable.

Grumblevolcano commented on Collectors Rejoice, Rare amiibo Figures Are Ge...:

@rjejr The amiibo sections in the UK seem to have even taken over Skylanders and Infinity once the huge restocks occurred earlier this year, I've also seen virtually nothing about Lego Dimensions which seems awkward given the release in just over a month. I agree with your comments about promotion though, it almost feels like everything that's not Super Mario Maker or Star Fox Zero is being delayed to 2016 because of nothing being talked about. The latter is just promotion of the E3 build though so even that's rather bad.

Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Download: 20th August (North America):

@IceClimbers That EU has, sure. In general there's Mario vs DK and a few others. Regarding 3rd party GBA games from developers who have supported Wii U VC in the past, there's 2 Mega Man Battle Network games (5 and 6) and one Mega Man Zero game (4) left where the latter is already in EU.

Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Removes Ironfall Invasion From 3DS eS...:

@Boshar Pretty sure these 3DS exploits make it impossible to pirate but I don't agree with both types of exploits anyway in addition to Nintendo's region lock decision.

The worst part about all of this is Nintendo's the odd one out. Lets imagine that someone from North America goes on 2 holidays, one in Europe and one in Japan. During each holiday they buy a few games for each of their current systems (PS4, XB1, Wii U, PS Vita, 3DS). When they get back from the 2nd holiday to play them all, the only ones which won't work on their North American systems are the ones bought for 3DS and Wii U.
