"It bugs me that amongst all of the complaints in this thread nobody has talked about what a great opportunity this is for such a small studio. Congrats to them."

I said the same thing in comment #75 and the last sentence in #115.

But yeah I agree, this shows a solid relationship between the two companies.

"It's just watching the shift in things, amiibo went from unlocking some cosmetic things to now unlocking entire game modes."

Need I remind you that all people did (including this very site) is complain about amiibo when they just unlocked costumes in MK8. Saying things like, "A $13 figure is not worth it for a costume." Nintendo is damned if they do, damned if they don't.

"Yeah, 51 characters, none of which have any context whatsoever, instead just being there for the hell of it, while also having several clones among them."

Sorry I'm late.

Isn't that what Smash is all about?? A beautiful mess of random characters beating the crap out of each other. How has it lost it's way exactly? This Shovel Knight amiibo confirmation must make you see red. One step closer to him being in Smash (not confirmed though of course).

"Lastly, these Amiibo will not be Available to everyone."

To be fair, Nintendo has been very good about keeping decent stock with third party characters. I've seen Megaman, Pac-Man and Sonic plenty of times, even while living in NA. In-fact, I can buy 2 of them off of Amazon right now for under $13. I don't see why Shovel Knight would be an exception here.

"I think that's the problem most have; it just feels like it didn't need an amiibo to unlock. And it may very well NOT require it, should the content come to other platforms."

That is a moot point. We have no idea when, or if that would ever happen, so how is that a justifiable point? We have no idea how this deal is worded. If X1 and PS4 were to get co-op free of charge, then sure you can complain. I just can't see it happening though, as this completely came out of left field. I understand the concern, I do, but I don't see it.

What we do know is, this amiibo will unlock a lot of content for Nintendo consoles only, not only for this game, but future ones as well. I think what a lot of people are missing here is that this really shows a solid relationship with Yacht Club Games. Good for Yacht Club, and good for Nintendo.

It's always the same tune with most of you. Nintendo is damned if they do, or damned if the don't. Always complaining that deep content is getting locked behind these things, or complaining that it's just stupid costumes, etc. It sounds like Shovel Knight wouldn't even get multiplayer if it wasn't for this. I am personally looking forward to this thing. He looks awesome, and good for Yacht Club games. I'm sure they had no idea their game was going to be such a hit that an amiibo would be made.

"Freakin' hell, this is a nightmare! As if Smash 4 wasn't already crippled enough from the lack of content - now we get characters thrown in out of goddamn nowhere?! Ugh, I knew it was a bad idea to let fans make decisions, but the Ballot has just reached a completely new height of pretentiousness."

Lol, come on man, settle down.

The ballot allowed for any video game character. I don't understand why this character deserves so much cursing. Is it because he's relatively new or something? What is the crime?

To reiterate on what others said: Lack of content?? Smash Bros. is not in that category. I think you've confused it with Splatoon.

"Also quite disappointed in NL for reporting on this... no actual source and even if it was true, it's a bit irritating to have "Shovel Knight" immediately in the headline. Some people prefer not to have the surprise ruined."

The first word in the headline is "Rumour".

I'm not sure I understand your argument. The article states that they cannot list a source. Obviously, the sources want to remain anonymous. That can leave the door open to disbelief, but that's why it is a rumour.



MoonKnight7 commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

If you ask me, Nintendo left this door wide open. It is their fault that amiibos are so difficult to obtain, but more importantly, the Wii U and 3DS do not have a save bank. How difficult could it be to set up a little app that saves your amiibo data?

Right or wrong, it doesn't matter, Nintendo should have seen this coming. Shame on them for having a third party (who can't even print stickers right) beat them to the punch.



MoonKnight7 commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. 3 - 1990:

I remember the first time I saw this game on display at a store. My tiny hands gripped the controller and I looked at the overview map. I could choose level 3 or 4 and my head exploded.

Growing up my sister and I used to play this every summer. We restarted it, I don't know how many times. It's simply a platforming masterpiece and shows Nintendo at their prime.

"A Zombieland like comedic drama show seems like it would have been better, imo."

They actually tried that via Amazon:

It never had a chance from the get-go, as they made an incredibly stupid decision to use the same characters, but with different actors/actresses. Having not worked in the TV industry, even I know better. If it would have been in the same "world", yet focused on new characters, then we can talk, but this was just a flat out, stupid waste of time.

::spoilers to TWD show below::

As for TWD, I am in agreement with the rest of you who don't like it. The popularity simply baffles me. It just isn't very good, and had cliches everywhere in the beginning. I had a bad feeling when I watched episode 2, when I saw the men hunting and the women doing laundry in the lake... Ugh... Really?

Then season two had Andrea, who was a complete badass sharpshooter in the comics, as a bumbling idiot who can't handle a gun. She can't have a gun, cause, you know, women. Then they finally give her one and she shoots Darryl in the face... Second ugh....

Lorrie driving the car to find Rick was yet another cliche on women. Pregnant Lorrie got into a car by herself to find Rick (for reasons I still don't understand), and crashed it in 30 seconds. Third ugh...

After season 3 they lost me. The Governor is a badass story arch. We were promised the full arch, but by the time they got to the end of the season, they changed their mind. There's a reason why Glen Mezzara left, and it was because AMC decided to not keep their promise and pushed back the arch into season 4. The worst of it is the last episode, which was edited to hell and had a weird extra 5-6 minutes of run-time. They had the real thing filmed, but changed their mind at the last second. Bait and switch. I know this because AMC was in a real hurry to get David Morrissey back as the Governor for season 4 after the last episode aired. That was my last ugh with this show.

I haven't been back since, and I don't care to come back either. Too many ughs... I'm sticking with the Telltale games from here on out.

These games tell a much better story that the Walking Dead show itself. If you don't own these yet, this price isn't bad, though arguably you could probably get it cheaper on a PC, but that's your call.

It's important to note that, more than anything, these are interactive stories. The gaming part of it is pretty minimal, but still, the stories are gripping. They will place you in horrible situations where both solutions are wrong. Love it.

Haha, I was not directing anything at you, it was merely a coincidence. I actually didn't even read your post until now, lol. I'm not one of those that talks about others and while making the claim of "forgetting" to click reply. I always make sure to do things properly while discussing with others.

But back to the topic, both of those are decent films (never saw 50 First Dates, but I heard it was OK, nothing more) but the Wedding Singer merely had Sandler as an actor, his production company either didn't exist yet, or they weren't involved.

Happy Madison Productions has a poor track record, and Pixels is just the latest in a string of horrible bottom barrel movies. I feel like he's just not even trying anymore. I hope that Netflix deal helps him with quality control; unless Netflix gets cold feet and pulls out, that is. If that would happen, I can't say that I blame them.



MoonKnight7 commented on Movie Review: Pixels Proves Once Again That Vi...:

Adam Sandler is just way past his prime... Almost 15 years past his prime... His box office numbers are starting to show that with waning returns. This is why I expect that deal with Netflix was a god-send for him. He's very lucky to strike that deal.

My wife and I recently re-watched The Waterboy and Happy Gillmore, which we haven't seen in years, and you know what? They weren't funny. They were hysterical when I was an immature teenager, but now, they're just terrible.

I simply say no to anything Adam Sandler does. It's just bottom barrel every time. I can make a better use of my money.
