Amiibos are cool toys that do cool things in cool games.
Nintendo were surprised by how many people wanted to buy them and that almost all wanted a full set.
I think it's better for Nintendo to diversif their product line more, instead of having countless unsold copies of one item, they have made a profit and created a backlog for multiple profitable lines.
Of course if there were plenty of Amiibos for everyone to buy as many as they wanted, people wouldn't feel the need to buy right now.

@rjejr Yes, he can just click his magic fingers and have more stock ready to sell so everyone can get the consoles, amiibos and Wii U Gamecube Controller adapters they want.
Limited stock means picking and choosing which lines to sell in which regions.

As each figure of the same character offers nothing new except for a new pose or colour scheme, and the gold one doesn't look that great, I don't care if it doesn't come to Australia at all.
If it does, I may get one just to sell to people in other regions who really want one but miss out.

Most people don't use voice chat, and out of those who do, some actually discuss team tactics (assuing they aren't the only member if their team with a mic, which is usually the case) or its a 13 year old (or an adult with the maturity of a 13 year old) who just yells abuse the whole time.
I have headsets but havent used them for years because nobody else does.

Free publicity? Sorry whoever you are, you can't pay your rent with free publicity.
Maybe I should make a YouTube page making money by talking over his videos and demand he accept the free publicity.
It's a business, not a charity, and if you profit from someone else's product then you shouldn't be able to do it for free.
PS Big difference between a Let's Play video and a review, just like there's a big difference between watching Super Bowl highlights on the news and watching the entire Super Bowl with some YouTube person's commentary.

MadAdam81 commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:

@NEW3DSXLISMINE Warner Brothers own the company that makes the LEGO video games, and Vanilla Ice is more liked for his interior design than his music.
That's why Michelangelo wasn't a playable character (along with any Disney owned characters) in the LEGO Movie Game and Millhouse was blurred in the cutscenes in the game.
However they aren't afraid to make money from Marvel, but only in standalone games. TMNT probably wouldn't sell enough to warrant a game (sad as it would be).
I wouldn't be surprised to hear of a LEGO Minecraft game (which would at least bring Minecraft to the WIi U).

@Peach64 Hopefully the games are better than the films. Not sure what has more bad cliches, Jurassic Park movies or Avengers, However Avengers doesn't make their cliches so painful, but it is one cliche after another, just like Thor 2 & Captain America 2, both of which are full of obvious plot devices making everything ttally predictable.

I had no idea, I never owned it personally but had some friends who did and for some reason I kept visiting them to play it....
I've had it on VC as well and not heard it. It's about as cool when I first heard about the warp pipes, and when I first heard about the secret second lot of warp pipes.

@Lukey64000 If you are Australian you can point to the Australian law that says they have to fix or replace with a working one or refund. If you are not Austraian you should ask a consumer law expert in your country.
I'm having my own problems with MS at the moment - I got a $20 promotional Xbox credit voucher that had a secret expiry date and they are refusing to replace it. I'm going to have to go through the ACCC I think.

Ubisoft's number 1 game was Rayman Legends, a game that sold best and rated best on Wii U. Personally I'm not fussed it was made a mulitplat game as otherwise Ubi probably would have made a loss on what I consider probably the best platformer not made by Nintendo.

MadAdam81 commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:

The only problem is that VC is not enough of a money spinner for Nintendo. Nobody is going to buy a 3DS or Wii U just so they can play a bunch of particular VC games (except for maybe those for whom Earthbound was the clincher).
Nintendo only have a limited amout of programmers, and we can't have 100 VC games a year AND great games like Splatoon AND new Zelda AND new Metroid. Also, if Nintendo do too many VC games then most of them don't get any purchases, they get lost in the deluge. However, it would be nice if they could prioritise their VC release schedule to ensure that the games people want to buy are released before games nobody really cares about.

@JaxonH Also my friend and I have a Wii U each. The other day my friend took his around to another friend's place and with MK8 and Smash Bros he's hooked. He had a Wii but it gathered dust.
My first friend only got a Wii U after playing my launch console. I "got" the console on it's first annoncement and it has delivered, whereas most people don't get it until after they've actually played it.
Nintendo need to do some marketing to help this word of mouth amongst western male gamers and actually have some western male gamers in their campaign - maybe just before the release of Splatoon would be a good time to get such a campaign going.

@Fandabidozi I am offended by your attitude, just because I haven't found anything actually offensive to be offended by today.

Seriously, he's like those middle aged women who love their soapies, tabloid papers, celebrity rumour magazines and current affair shows so they can yell at the baddies.
