Nik-Davies commented on Super Mario amiibo Series Can Now Be Preordere...:

Wow Peach is already sold out :O

Also, they're selling editions where you get an amiibo carry case the Mario Edition and three more figures (Toad, Bowser and either Luigi, Peach, or Yoshi)

EDIT: Should probably mention these versions are £69.99 each, which means you're basically getting the case for free, and saving a few pounds compared to if you were to buy the amiibos seperately



Nik-Davies commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

I heard a theory that they're saving the small 3DS for around the holiday time, as it would be cheaper and more people would buy it for their kids for Christmas. The faceplates would also help sell it.
It's a pretty good theory to be honest.
But I feel like NA isn't going to get it at all.



Nik-Davies commented on Zelda: Majora's Mask New 3DS Bundles Available...:

I've pre-ordered the Metallic Black New 3DS XL with Special Edition Majora's Mask 3D, Case, Charger, Skullboy Statue for £224.99

Also, helpful hint, if you pre-order one or spend £30 or more, you can get a free Mario 2015 Calender. Just add: MARIOCAL8 to the promo codes. Nothing amazing. But still, it's free, and worth £12.99



Nik-Davies commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

Thanks for the recommendation. Purchased

Jks. Although I'm willing to admit, if it was less than a £1, I honestly would have done for a laugh. But do they really believe anyone will buy it for that much?! Ludicrous.



Nik-Davies commented on Video: We Go Hands On With Some 2nd Wave amiib...:

I got my Luigi today (which I've nicknamed Lugi ;)) and I FINALLY managed to reserve Villager and Marth for Friday. Just need Kirby and Wii Fit Trainer from Wave 1. Then, I can finish worrying about Wave 2.
For those from the UK disgusted by GAME's £14.99 price, check Argos. They've got an offer running, 2 for £21. Granted you're only saving about a £1, but it's better then spending £8 more. Not sure if the other will work with Wave 2 though and good luck finding Wave 1.



Nik-Davies commented on Video: Use Your amibo Figures Without Removing...:

Some of you don't realise that it's not just people buying them, using them and returning them that would be an issue. It's the fact that when the 3DS gets amiibo support, which is now, people would be able to unlock the stuff they need to in the store without giving ANY money over.



Nik-Davies commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS HOME Menu T...:

It would either be between the third or fourth for me mainly due to the music.
I pre-ordered the Wii U version today, along with the Gamecube controller and adapter, and I've got some money for some amiibos. Going to the midnight launch next thursday night. Can't wait. :)



Nik-Davies commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Unboxes Super Smash Bro...:

Strange start to a comments section.

I've worked out that I can probably afford to get one every fortnight. Which'll be good. Gives me time with each character.

@danjohnson141 No, unfortunately. There's this metal sheet thing just below the figure that prevents the scan from taking place. GameXplain made a video about it on YouTube if you wanted to see. That same video is also on I think.



Nik-Davies commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Evolved From a ...:

My amiibo Integration idea
From what I've seen the Captain Toad levels are split into these books. How about have a book dedicated to amiibo.
First things first, when any amiibo is scanned, you unlock a costume for either Toad or Toadette which they then wear into the second part of my idea.
When you scan an amiibo of a particular franchise, you unlock 3 stages themed around that franchise. These stages compose of a standard puzzle stage, an on-rail stage, and a boss battle.
For example, scanning Link, Zelda, Shiek, or Toon Link unlocks the Hyrule stages. Instead of getting to the star, you get to the Master Sword. Instead of getting 3 gems, you collect the three pieces of the Tri-force. Instead of throwing turnips, you throw bombs etc. In the on-rail stage, instead of riding a mine cart, you ride Epona and the boss battle could be with Ganon.

These can be adapted and themed to most franchises.
Anyone like? :)
