I'm not sure how Amiibo can be tastefully incorporated into Zelda U, but an idea I have was to have some sort of minigame (one of those timewasters like fishing and whatnot) that you could scan Amiibo characters into to play as within the minigame. And you can unlock certain prizes or costumes or whatever depending on which character you play as.

But in the end, I feel like a majority of games will just be compatible in the marginal way that MK8, Hyrule Warriors, etc were, in that they unlock small gifts or prizes within the game.

I don't see why they can't just discontinue the original 3DS XL and release both the New versions in North America. That way, you have the 2DS, New 3DS, and New 3DS XL in stores. The naming convention is confusing with two "3DS XL" models in stores, might as well remove the old 3DS XLs and just have the "New" line become the new standard 3DS models, with of course, the 2DS model available for those on a budget.

The way I see it? Having both the old XL and New XL in stores is pointless. People aren't going to opt for an outdated system just to save $25. When given the choice between the old XL and the New XL, people are going to go for the New one, because it's new. It's the damn name of the system.

SO, why not just clear out XL stock and make way for the standard New 3DS. That way, you have three Nintendo handhelds on store shelves with their own viable features:
-2DS - The budget system for those that don't particularly care for 3DS.
-New 3DS - For those that desire a smaller system and the ability to customize.
-New 3DS XL - For those that want a bigger system and bigger screens.

Can someone please tell me how that lineup of systems is NOT more desirable than the current lineup of the 2DS, 3DS XL, and New 3DS XL??



RQuinain commented on Card Format amiibo Confirmed to be Heading our...:

I'm fine with this. It's a good way for people to get the Amiibos they want to actually play with. Although I play with all of my Amiibos, I collect them more for the purpose of collecting, since they're figures. If I just bought them for the functionality, then I would definitely go for the cards instead since they would definitely be cheaper.

As long as they don't see the cards as a lazy way to release the rest of the Smash Bros roster... they honestly have nothing to lose by releasing both card and figure versions of the Smash Bros roster tbh.

In my opinion, releasing a fully customizable 3DS with faceplates caters perfectly to the goal of "expanding the user base"... do people see how obsessive people get with iPhone cases? It's like a fashion statement for iPhone owners. Our generation today is all about customization. A customizable 3DS works perfectly to cater to that casual audience that focuses on their mobile devices over console gaming.

And yeah, I agree with some people that, honestly, if they were that concerned about confusing the user base, then just stop producing the original XL. The New 3DS hardware is far superior to the original, and honestly, people who are buying a 3DS for the first time should definitely buy the New 3DS as it's the definitive 3DS experience. Plus the stupid naming convention is confusing as it is. "I got a New 3DS XL!" Are they talking about a new standard XL model or the New 3DS XL model? It's silly. If they released the standard New 3DS and discontinued the original 3DS XL, then you'd have the 2DS, New 3DS, and New 3DS XL on store shelves, and that way, you can just refer to the New 3DS/3DS XL models as simply the 3DS and 3DS XL.

I'm not a businessman but when the outcry is this bad at a decision Nintendo has made, I think it's worth playing devil's advocate for yourself from a business standpoint and listen to what the fans have to say.

@schizor Definitely agree. Imo the DS Lite was definitely the best in terms of a physical revision, but the New 3DS XL trumps all the other revisions not necessarily in terms of its physical appearance (the normal New 3DS probably wins that title even over the DS Lite, but we ain't getting that in NA, are we...) but in terms of its functionality. I've never played my 3DS with such renewed fervor, and I'm definitely playing the hell out of Super Smash Bros like I never did before, especially after getting the Wii U version. The New 3DS is fantastic.

Now, if we can only get the standard New 3DS and those damn faceplates...



RQuinain commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Lol just after I spent my coins on rewards I didn't want that much, but I just felt like I needed to spend my coins... I hope the end-of-program rewards they're releasing won't be TOO bomb, otherwise I'll feel bad about wasting my coins pre-emptively

Sure hope I can get elite status before March 31st. I have 285 coins to go.



RQuinain commented on Gallery: Feast Your Eyes on the Super Mario an...:

So just wondering, are the Super Mario Amiibos going to be the same size as the Smash Bros one? By same size, I mean the bases; are they the same size as the SSB ones. I imagine they would be, I just wanted to make sure, because if I collect any Amiibos outside of the Smash Bros ones I'd want consistency in size at least haha



RQuinain commented on Mario and Luigi Wii Remote Plus Controllers Ju...:

I might want to get both since I have two regular Wiimotes with Motion Plus attachments! The only thing is the attachments are bootleg so don't work that well sometimes...

So conflicted though, because one of them is the Tron wiimote and I never want to stop using that! Lol



RQuinain commented on Bertil Hörberg Shows Gunman Clive Running on ...:

I'd so buy this game on Wii U for $5 if he can add a slew of extra content on it. Weapons and levels particularly.The 3DS version was much more gameplay than I expected for a $2 game, so imagine how much we'd get for $5!



RQuinain commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:

It's between Watch Dogs and Wind Waker for me. Watch Dogs because I'm just completely excited to play it no matter what. Wind Waker because it's something I've wanted to play for a very long time, and despite owning a Wii, I never got around to getting a memory card and a copy of Wind Waker itself, and thus I never played it. It's between experiencing something completely new and exciting, or finally being able to experience an unplayed gem in a familiar franchise...



RQuinain commented on More Than 1500 Cheaters Took Part in Pokémon'...:

I wonder how they discovered whether people cheated or not. I thought there were ways to make your Pokemon look completely legit even if you created it, but I guess there's still something that tells whether or not it's hacked?



RQuinain commented on Global Link For Pokémon Black And White Title...:

I got bored of the Dream World after a few months using it with BW1, but what about those people that spent time on their dream houses? Do they just go poof? And the Pokedex, C-Gear, Musical skins... I'm assuming that once it goes offline, you're stuck with whatever you have on your game?



RQuinain commented on First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda: The Wi...:

I'm excited for this too. I always made plans to buy the GCN version for my Wii, but they just fell through because I became pre-occupied with Wii games, handheld games, and school, of course. But this gives me an excuse to finally play Wind Waker!
