MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

@RainbowGazelle There are plenty of places that have rare stock, although it's not easy to contact hundreds of stores.
And if everybody could buy all the amiibos they wanted, they wouldn't preorder all the amiibo they could and buy them all as soon as they can.
The shortage is leading to people buy more than they were otherwise going to, the craze got way out of hand.

MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

@RainbowGazelle What? I was also surprised that everybody wanted the full collection. I was expecting to only get a few, and I was expecting everyone else to only get a few. Nobody was expecting so many people to want every single Amiibo. Sometimes people get a number one smash hit out of something the maker thinks will sell only a relatively small amount, an it can take a few years for stock levels to catch up (Discworld comes to mind).

MadAdam81 commented on Flygon Was Once Going to Receive a Mega Evolution:

@andyg1971 read the quote - I think it's newsworthy for Pokefanatics, and don't you want Pokefanatics to want to check Nintendolife for news?

"For Aarune, he needed to have a Pokemon that could use the moves Fly and Secret Power, which are perfect moves for finding Secret Bases. And the only Hoenn Pokemon that wasn't used by a key character that fit that criteria was Flygon. It does not Mega Evolve, but I really like Flygon.
Flygon has had the potential to have a Mega Evolution since XY, but we were unable to complete a design and so it was dropped from consideration."

Update downloaded first, DLC still downloading,
I tried the Mushroom Cup in 200cc, (with the Sonic mii outfit) and I had to change my tyres from fast ones to grip ones, as I kept crashing into the sides while drifting - and even after changing my set up, it was still super mega crazy. Second time was with Mega Man outfit, and neither looked as cool as Samus or Captain Falcon outfits.
And very fun. Can't wait to get the new courses

How awesome would Mega Rapidash be?
But one thing Pokemon needs to do to, um, evolve, is have cross breed pokemon - new pokemon that you can only get by breeding two specific pokemon, such as Pikachu and Marill, while holding a particular new item.

When it was reported elsewhere it was fine. When it turned out to be stolen information they didn't want to support information thieves.

As far as whistleblowing goes, it's okay when there's unconciousable conduct to reveal - unless people really think planning a new Mario movie is that evil, this theft of information is pretty low.

Not getting it. AU$164 is the best price I have found for the actual game with another $50 for the Back to the Future set that has the level, Marty McFly, DeLorean and hover board. $24 for a character and vehicle/gadget/monster. $39 for Ninjago team set and with all the extra character packs it's over $110 for all Ninjago. It would cost a bit too get all Lego Movie character packs and to get everything that's available on launch, it's insane and to get everything you want that's coming within the first year that's going to be an incredible amount for on disc DLC.
I'll wait for reviews (maybe the content in the main game and each new story pack is the same as LEGO Movie the game) and maybe places will discount heavily at release, but I think we'll sit out of this one.

MadAdam81 commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

I have only used kickstarter to back companies that have already had success, such as Silence in the Library for various books and short story collections, the Pinball game that's not on Wii U yet for the Terminator 2 pinball table and Shadowrun for the second expansion.

Brilliant idea to allow people who have the disc version to download some of the most used data to their console. Because the internal memory is faster than an external HDD, it will be a very noticeable load time increase.

MadAdam81 commented on Video: Extended LEGO Dimensions Announcement T...:

@MightyKrypto but at least there's not content locked behind the purchase of Amiibos. You don't need to buy any, yet they still are selling 10 times more they thought.
They do a lot of little things as well as being a cool Nintendo figure and at a much better price than any other series of Nintendo figures.
Many people are keeping them in boxes and not using them because they are collectable. Are you saying any toy that is still on its box is pointless and useless?

@Haiassai CoD games (but not on Wii U) have the swearing teens and swearing adults, but strategic games like TF2 usually have better voice chat.
However, if they want families to play this, I'm not surprised Nintendo would go this way. As others have said, it's not hard to use your PC to chat.

MadAdam81 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

@XCWarrior Mario Kart 8 DLC is the only DLC I have bought on Wii U aside from some extra pinball tables. I haven't even bought Hyrule Warriors DLC as a few extra characters don't interest me, there needs to be as many new levels as Mario Kart 8 DLC packs.
Microtransactions have never bothered me, I have only ever spent a couple of dollars twice on free to play games that I have spent hundreds of hours playing, I am very good at ignoring them and will stop playing a game that gets the balance wrong.
Nintendo need to balance any microtransactions so people can't actually spend more than $100 total in a game.

Good on him. It's good that he's only claimed a total of $100k and not taken people to court for millions, but just asked for a small settlement that most are happy to pay. And, he's ignored most small earning infringements. Ramirez has my respect.

@XCWarrior I played 100s of hours of Mario Kart 8. I spent a relatively small price to add an extra 50% of content to the game (at muss less than half the retail price) and played it for 100s more hours.
Mario Kart 8 is an example of great DLC that is worth the money, or would you rather they release it on a disc at 3 times the price as it's own game?
