I didn't have too much of a problem with the surveys, they could easily be done in less than a minute if you already knew your most basic answers off by heart. Yeah, the rewards were never that great but it was nice to own a few of the special items they had on there, like the Classic SNES controller. In fact I've been hoping they'd re-add it to the catalogue but I doubt it'll happen now.

I think Robin and Lucina are going to end up having the hit and miss face problem like Marth had. Hopefully there'll be a larger amount produced due to their usage in S.T.E.A.M, although I'm not holding my breath. I wonder if the new Fire Emblem game will make use of them?

Scalpers won't see a penny from me. If I hadn't managed to purchase my Majora's Mask New 3DS earlier I'd of just gone without, albeit reluctantly.

I could of made a nice profit on a couple of Marth amiibos I had going spare (I'm fussy about paint jobs) but I just sent them back for a £10 refund each. I was sad to see so many people snapping up overpriced amiibo just before Xmas, a bit of savvy shopping could've saved them a lot of money.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

I can't see Nintendo releasing two of their biggest 3DS titles of 2015 on the same day to be honest. Majora's Mask was set for Spring, so I can't imagine they'd actually bring the date that far forward. I'm guessing their use in the poster is merely related to them having unique features on the New 3DS.

If your in Bristol don't bother checking Game for any second wave amiibos. Broadmead has Mario, Samus and Fox, Galleries just has Mario behind the counter. If you like Skylanders or Disney Infinity though they seem to be taking up more shelf space than actual games.



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

I got my Marth through the post today (thanks Tesco) and although his face is fine, there are a few tiny scuffs to the paint job on his belt and shoulder. I'll keep hold of it for now until I track down another one, but in future I'll probably order two amiibos at a time and return the lesser quality one.

@SphericalCrusher Amazon. I received an email from them at 2am on the morning I was meant to receive it, basically saying there's been a problem and that I'll have to wait until December 19th. I emailed them back and they blamed Nintendo for screwing up supply. I cancelled the order and went with Shopto who supposedly had some in stock according the their website, but I've still not had any dispatch confirmation...



MeddlingIdiot commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

The game's still serving me well, so I've not gotten around to the DLC yet, and with Bayonetta just around the corner Hyrule Warriors may have to go on the back burner for a while. Fortunately, as entertaining as Smash is on the 3DS I'm by no means hooked, which means more Wii U time for me.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

7/10 is what I thought it'd get to be honest. Doesn't bother me though, that's still a good score for a spin-off of one of the best best gaming IPs of all time. Friday can't come soon enough! :)
