@aaronsullivan - "Oops back to minecraft! lol"

Yeah, my kids still either play Minecraft every day - mods on PC and couch co-op on PS3 - or watch youtube videos about it. They were super excited about the new Stage Builder in SSB U, and they really want Mario Maker, so at least Nintnedo is chipping away at the need for kids to be creative. Nothing to match LBP3 though which we are all looking forward too. 16 layers is insane.

You decipher Disney Infintiy 2.0 yet? Skylanders in Jan. for us on the Wii U. I'm a big Sony fan since 97 and FF7 but I'm really not impressed by the PS4. Someday, but at least a year away. Maybe 2 if Zelda and XCX both release around holiday 2015.

rjejr commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

@Ryno - There's still 2 Wii Minis at my Target, maybe your wife can get you 1 of those for Christmas if Bayonetta 2 is sold out ;-)

@Captain_Gonru - Yeah, Target employees can't comprehend Friday release dates, they always put stuff out on Tues. They just do.

@Peach64 - You forgot lousy broadband in the US. And some companies have limits of maybe 25GB per month. B1 is 17 GB and B2 is 14 GB, that's 31GB so some people wouldn't even be permitted to DL them.

I'm guessing the low stock is based on -

1. low Wii U install base
2. 3rd party game - I know Nitneod bankrolled it but it's still 3rd party
3. W101 (Platinum's other game) was not flying off the shelves
4. rated M for mature in US.

Add those 4 together and I can see retailers not wanting to order a ton of copies. By the time all the great reviews came out it was probably too late.

On the bright side, the $70 used Xenoblade Chronicles scenario hopefully won't happen again as that was a Gamestop exclsuive so they owned every copy, this seems to have a much wider distribution.

No option for "Santa is getting it for me for Christmas and the elfs haven't burned it yet". Or however elfs make video game discs. I can't be the only person who wants this but didn't rush out Day 1 to buy it. It's only been on sale for like 28 hours. I will be getting disc, too many GB for me.

@Drawdler - "But what would be the point in that?"

I've posted a dozen times in this thread so I'm guessing your question has to do w/ playing as your amiibo so that's what I'll answer here. If your question relates to something else you probably don't need to read any further :-)

Why make amiibo playable?

1. b/c why not, you paid $13 for it
2. easier to tap it on the Gamepad than move that little finger around and pick from the 40+ character menu
3. when you swap out your character for the FP you get to keep playing (see Skylanders Trap Team) rather than just watching
4. Koreans can spend all their time leveling up characters to 50 then sell them on eBay so time constrained people can play w/ powerful characters too (see MMOs)
5. bring them to a friends house to play as them and show off all the cool stuff you've done to them like my kids have been doing making characters on the 3DS version. They've made lots and lots of characters, not just Miis.

Maybe you haven't spent any time playing Skylanders or been around kids playing Skylanders but kids are NOT going to want to buy these if they can't play as them. Maybe they'll buy 1 or 2 but they are NOT going to want to purchase all 18 if they don't get to play as them. They are just not going to be interested, and the same probably goes for a lot of adults too. They'll rush out to buy a couple but when they realize the NFC are nothing more than NPC the incentive to buy more will be gone, or at least greatly diminished.

People have been conditioned over the pat 3 years to playing AS their toys, not alongside their toys w/ Skylanders and a year for Disney. The amiibo are going to seem "lame" or whatever the kids are calling it today, and they'll sell less. You can't bring out a competing product late to the party after 2 others have already been established and make your product do less than the other 2 and expect your product to be successful.

So I guess the bottom line and most important reason for why you should be able to play as your character is because the competing NFC products Disney Infinity and Skylanders let you.

"Of course, we’d like it on ours at the same time but it’s not a dealbreaker."

Maybe it's not a dealbreaker for them, but its getting that way for me. Rayman delayed, W_D delayed, Project Cars delayed. I understand small indies have limited resources but if you have enough resources to make a game on 4 or 5 consoles at once then 1 more shouldn't be an issue.

Games that get updated, like Keflings seems to have done by including the 3 DLC packs and upgrading the graphics a bit, same for Paper Monsters Uncut, I'm ok with a late release thats staggered. Sony and MS systems don't always get the games at the same time either, but when it's 4 at once and 1 Wii U that's delayed, that's not good.

@dkxcalibur - I have the $5 Target pre-order card as well. Going to wait and see. I was at the midnight release for Brawl at Gamestop but they don't really have any good sales or offers there. LBP3 comes out that Tues so I'll be keeping an eye out for any B1G1 offers on that as well. And my kids are both picking up Pokemon that day w/ the $5 GC offer on each, we may combine resources for SSBU :-)

EDIT: Occured to me after I wrote this that I've never seen the amiibo and game bundle advertised for the US. Maybe NOA knows most retailers will be giving away a free amiibo w/ every game purchase?

http://mynintendonews.com/2014/10/07/nintendo-europe-announces-super-smash-bros-amiibo-and-gamecube-adapter-bundles/

Walmart used to advertise a store made bundle but you can no longer order it. I had it bookmarked though.

@sinalefa - Captain Toad is Christmas, that's 1 I don't have to think about. So is LBP3. And B2. Which is why maybe I can get SSBU day 1, 3 games from Santa is probably enough.

Grinch is my favorite holiday special, I have both a stuffed Max (the dog) and Grinch sitting on my dresser.

@sinalefa - Oh yeah, have fun w/ Bayonetta. I'm holding out for Christmas. I may be an old grouch, but having something I really want under the Christmas tree makes for a happy morning :-) And I still have HW to keep me busy. And maybe SSB in 4 weeks, still debating T-day or Christmas morning for that one. Probably won't decide until Nov 20 when I know what's on offer - free amiibo (TRU already has that offer up), Buy 1 Get 1 1/2 off or free even, stuff like that.

rjejr commented on Feature: Breaking Down Over 50 Must-See Things...:

Wow, didn't expect you guys to break out all 50+ things, though I was expecting some sort of discussion about 4 of the 50+ to be patched in later. I know that's less than 10% but it still seemed worth emphasizing.

Tourney's, sharing, the Miiverse stage and Mewtoo all "later". Special thanks to @jariw for figuring all of that out for me.

Favorite part was the vastly improved Stage Builder. By the time they patch in sharing we should have some really good levels to play on.

Oh, and I don't need to buy any more controllers for 8 player - 1 Gamepad, 3 Wiimotes/nunchucks, 1 Wiimote attached to Classic Pro, 1 Wii U Pro, and 2 3DS each w/ copies of the game. The 20 people I have over every year for Thanksgiving dinner won't care what controllers they are using, it will just be bedlam on the tv anyway.

rjejr commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

@sinalefa - I can see the amiibo being useful that way, if you can't just use any other CPU player in the game as a partner - for free. Toys R Us is giving a free amiibo w/ the game purchase, I'm hoping Target will match that and we'll gt 1 for free to see how it all works before we decide on buying any more.

Sorry about the lack of demo but it was too soon, maybe mid Nov. Not sure SSBU really needs one though, I think we all know how it plays. I'm not even sure Captain Toad needs a demo, but they should probably put 3 varying levels in the store kiosks to help w/ sales, it might need help, SSBU should sell itself.

rjejr commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

@Emblem @aaronsullivan @Ryu_Niiyama - I know, I guess I'm just finding it hard to believe as it just doesn't make any sense to me. If I'm going to level up this toy and carry it over to my friends house I want to play as that leveled up toy, not just swap it in every now and then. I know that means the toys aren't necessary like in the other toy games, but it also makes me not want to buy 1. I don't understand why playing as them isn't an option?

The only upside is they can use the Courtship of Eddie's Father theme song as a marketing device. It starts at the 35 second mark, but the opening dialogue is really good too.

rjejr commented on Review: Disney Infinity 2.0 (Wii U):

@ShadJV - Yes it should. Personally I think if you need a flow chart and an entire age to explain this stuff to your customers then you are doing it wrong, but maybe that's just me.

https://infinity.disney.com/compatibility

Here's the part I think you want to know near the bottom of that long page:

DISNEY INFINITY BASE

If you have a physical base from Disney Infinity, it will work for Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition) in most cases. The exception is that the Xbox 360 base only works on Xbox 360, and does not work on Xbox One. Neither of the Xbox or 3DS bases work on other platforms.

Looks like Microsoft didn't pay them enough money for compatibility ;-)

Good luck figuring it all out.

rjejr commented on Review: Disney Infinity 2.0 (Wii U):

@aaronsullivan - You still haven't figured it out yet? I thought you had a plan, man. ;-) (that last sentence needs to be read in a hip 70's voice.)

Thought about getting ToyBox 2.0 for Tinkerbell but between LBP3 on the PS3 and SSBU stage builder on the Gamepad I think that's enough creativity for my kids. And my son always gets Skylanders for his birthday in Jan. and all his relatives buy him the Sklyanders. It's worked out well the past 2 years.

rjejr commented on You Can Use The Wii U GamePad For Voice Chat, ...:

@jariw @damo - I was just about to type, "Really, just those 3, seemed like more." and then you go and ad another. ;-) It probably is just those 4 those, and Mewtoo doesn't really count as a feature, he's just DLC so no big deal to me (my kids can't wait though), but it makes it look like they REALLY wanted this out for the holidays to leave out tourneys, sharing and Miiverse integration.

So can we finally kick "a delayed game can be good, a bad game is bad forever" to the curb now? Maybe change it to "an on time game can be patched later, missing Black Friday is a no-no". :-)

Oh, and w/ those 4 things coming later maybe Christmas 2015 Nintendo can release it's first "GOTY" ed w/ those 3 features on disc and Mewtoo on the cover so everyone who buys it can get him? They do patches and paid DLC now, might as well do re-releases as well.

Oh, funny thought I had this mornig - Nintnedo first announced this as "Winter 2014" before changing it to "Holiday 2015" but now it's coming out in "Fall 2014". Though I suppose Nov 21 is close enough to T-day to still be "holiday". They did miss a marketing opportunity though - "SSB U in Autumn 2014, with 8-player battles fighters will be falling like leaves!". Trust me, it would be funny if that announcer said it.

Thanks for counting those for me, I was going to do it when I re-watched the vid w/ my kids last night but they were busy playing the Pokemon ASOR demo, we'll watch it today after school. And not get SSBU until Christmas b/c ASOR releases the same day and they'll be busy for a month trying to catch them all. Maybe all the patches - minus Mewtoo - will be in by then?

rjejr commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Takes Sharing Expe...:

@Late - Thanks. Amazing that they can do all that but we can't get 2 Gamepads to work. I understand it's probably a streaming issue for having what would be processing 3 video screens at once but if it can hook up w/ a Gamepad and 7 3DS and handle all 8 characters battling it out online at once, and 4 player split screen for MK8, why not 2 Gamepads? Not 2 Gamepads plus 6 3DS, just 2 Gamepads by themselves.

@sinalefa - Yeah that's what I was afraid of. Well maybe Nintendo will give us another copy of Mewtoo for buying both versions of Pokemon ASOR, I can register both of them on my main account b/c they are 2 different games - already did it w/ B/W, B/W2, XY. But no, not buying another Wii U for SSB U, nice suggestion though ;-) May have to buy 1 for Splatoon, XCX and Zelda as my kids get older they are using the tv more and may need a Wii U in my room :-)

rjejr commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

8 player in the 4 player video will hopefully stop people complaining about how they don't have 7 friends or controllers.

Even for Nintnedo that 4 minute vid was a bit cheesy though, way too much emphasis on the relationship between the girl and her boyfriends younger brother, it was like an ad for a soap opera. Just the fact that I know all the relationships in the vid means they spent too much time on it, just show the game and edit out the rest.

OK, for clarification - do you actually get to play as your amiibo, b/c I thought you only swapped them out or teamed up w/ them, not that you actually played as them. I'ld be more inclined to buy them if I was them rather than just a brief assist swap. The shorter vid used words like train beside you and assisst.

I do like Hyrule Warriors on the bottom of the amiibo ad, makes me think more than just Link - who is already in the game - will be playable. If Bayonetta can dress as all those characters maybe we can use them in HW?

If anybody is interested Nintendo has a new 4 minute video on Youtube showing the 8 player w/ 4 people if you want to see some of it in action. Its mostly about amiibo. At the end when they show the usual amiibo slogan w/ the 5 games it now has Hyrule Warriors on the bottom. Sorry I csnt link very well on my tsblet, Im sure NL will cover it in the morning when they wake up.

rjejr commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

@IxC - Thank you very much for taking the time to write that all out and answer my question. And I did have that 7 bluetooth number in my head, its what the PS3 was limited to.

For me 8 player SSB isnt about the living room, its about Conan Obrien playing on tje scorebosrd at Cowboys stadium or other large venue events w/ colossal monitors.

Also, if you dont have 7 friends or spare controllers you can still have 7 CPU, or 4 players 4 CPU.

@Ryno - if you have 7 amiibo you can fight them all at once ;-)

I dont think we'll play board mode more than once, we keep trying all those Mario and Wii party games but Dokapon Kingdom was the only one we liked, but I still think its a nice addition. What I don't get is why fighting can handle 8 playets but a board game only 4?

Oh, and Im not exactly sure which stages this applies to, but all those co-op additions is for my kids. They'll need some time to play together after fighting over the Gamepad to create levels.

rjejr commented on You Can Use The Wii U GamePad For Voice Chat, ...:

Stage builder was highlight of the ND for me, voice chat was the most shocking as I was sure Nintendo forgot the Gamepad had a mic. And Im ok w/ it being limited to friends, I have 2 kids to think of, and I bet they patch in consistent gameplay voice later on after they see how the servers hold up (see Sonys DriveClub disaster).

So @damo, just how many of those 50 things seemed like they would be patched in later? Seems like the word "later" came up several times, even if "update" and "patch" werent actually used. Oh yeah, now Nov 21 is officially official, no please understand tonight ;--)

rjejr commented on Mewtwo Returns to Super Smash Bros., Ridley an...:

When my kids came home from school and asked about the vid I told them a new character was added and they both yelled out "MEWTOO!!!", so yeah, they're excited.

Imortant question - I have 1 Wii U and my 2 kids each have a 3DS (so does my wife) but the boys each have their own copy of SSB. So will both of their copies of the game get Mewtoo or only 1? Its all registered to my US CN acvount but the games are under different acvounts, mine and my wife, b/c Nintendo wont let you put 2 copirs of 1 game on 1 account.

Im not worried about the CDs, 1 set is enough for everybody.

Watched the entire video but I was typing a comment to someone about the DK level and completely missed the dual layer zones. I hope thst shows up in at least a few other levels.

Of course that level editor looked good enough that we may never play on any others once we can share them online. Was that a "later" thing?

Miiverse level
Mewtoo
How many other things were scheduled to be patched in later, Im sure at least 1 or 2 were also mentioned.

@WanderingPB - Sorry but I think I'm all commented out, but I did read all of yours of course, always fun and educational.

OK, 1 last one - if milk came in a can for many years that you needed to open w/ 1 of those pointy can openers, but then somebody came up w/ the idea of a simple twist off top for easy access, but then another company decided people needed to build up their muscles w/ the can opener so after using the twist off top for awhile they went back to the can opener, I would switch brands of milk, or start drinking oj instead. :-)

FYI - Beer is almost always better when you need a bottle opener than a twist off bottle. Cans don't count.

3 hours. I'm predicting over 1,500 comments in the live feed. Anybody know how long it's supposed to be?

i hope Nintendo keeps up w/ their wacky sense of humour of late and the Fils a Mech is back. Maybe the non-specific action figure can make a comeback, eh's been in hiding for over 2 years?

@GrunkFace - You win for best idea, based in part on a seldom used mic being built into the Gamepad. And a camera, but nobody in their right mind would wish for videochat during gameplay in a game like this. Bayonetta 2 should have it for the online mutlipayer, its' an M rated game and she's already naked, what harm would videochat do in a game like that?

Though I do think voice chat in SSBU would be locked to "friends" but I'm ok w/ that, I don't need my kids chatting w/ strangers anyway.

@SamirMalik - "Nowadays people are glued to their cellphones and what are they doing? Reading social networks."

I think in a new Paper Mario game Mario should carry around a 3DS and post all his in game memorable moments to Miiverse :-) I'm pretty sure Pitt would have a cellphone if they made a Kid Icarus Uprising 2, that game was hilarious, and did have a good story and was fully voice acted - I still think it should have had a Wii U HD port for the Wii U launch, there really hasn't been anything like it on Wii U. (Well besides all the late ports of Mass Effect 3, Batman Armored Ed and Darksiders and the AC games, I mean a new Nintendo game). And a Luigi's Mansion 1 and 2 HD package. Not for the story or voice acting, just b/c I want them :-)

@JaxonH - "we'll continue enjoying the games that we love."

Well my fear has never been Ninteod's downfall - they have options a plenty, 3rd party on consoles, 3rd party apps, merchandise and licensing up the wazoo - but the Wii Us failure a la Dreamcast, and I don't play portable games. So if Nitneod stopped making home consoles - which I can easily understand, look at the sales of all the home consoles, who wants to waste money making those? - then I lose the games I want the way I want them. Though I would buy a 4DSU for W1012 or Pikmin 4 but I want a home console, and I want it to have games. I currently have faith in Wii U giving me a solid next 2 years, and after that it will be time to get a PS4 anyway, so I'm finally at Wii U peace now. :-)

@JaxonH - No neither of us said anything about W101 being a platformer, but I do remember either reading something you wrote or writing something that at first glance could have been interpreted that way. Oh, and I played W101 on "Normal" thank you very much. Though I did spend a lot of hours playing the demo on super easy, easy, normal and hard so I was kind of prepared for it ;-) And I get why some people might think its difficult, but I don't lose my mind over it like some people ;-) No, not you, your always level headed, even on those very few rare occasions you aren't.

Not sure if "technical action" is an actual game genre but I'll admit I don't know how to describe this one. Besides the normal fighting levels that made up half the game you still had on rails shooters, boxing, 2D side scrolling and probably a couple of others. And some problem solving and sort of platforming. It's really a complete game. W/ several Difficulty settings. I think I push myself forward even when it gets tough b/c I know I can play at an easier setting if need be, its a psychological safety net that takes the fear and stress out of getting stuck.

rjejr

#43

rjejr commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

@WanderingPB - None of my points about the W101 poor sales, well except the cartoon graphics - which I like but some people don't, for example see the negative reaction to Windwaker's cell shaded graphics unveil - are about the game though, I didn't spit in it's face.

A better analogy using a car, b/c all good analogies are car based - you are sitting in a your shiny new beautiful BMW riding on a ferry, and the ferry gets hit by a huge meteor rocketing from the sky, then the ship's wreckage is washed up on the shore by a tsunami caused by the meteor crashing into your ship in the ocean, then a volcano erupts caused by your ship smashing onto shore and enulfs the ferry in molten lava, and then when your entombed body is discovered still sitting in your car people say you died b/c the BMW is an "unsafe" vehicle.

And as for DK, one last time, my biggest problem wasn't so much it's difficulty but that they took out the skip-a-level mechanic from the 1st game. I don't even recall what that mechanic was, but I do know I played every level in that first game many times and made it all the way until the end and final boss battle. Therefore I got my money's worth out of that first game, even though a few levels I had to skip AFTER PLAYING THEM MANY TIMES TRYING TO BEAT THEM. In the new game, which was a sequel, I think we can all agree on that, made by the same company and the same type of game - they made a conscious decision to take that mechanic out. If the 1st game didn't have it I wouldn't have expected the 2nd game to have it, but the 1st game did have it, and then they took it out. So they expect me to pay $50 for a game that I can't unlock most of unless I replay the same level over and over again. And over. And over. Again and again and again. Over and over again. So I'm not buying it and I'm not going to continue playing it. I don't care if it's the greatest platformer in the history of videogames (which is Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy BTW) I'm just not doing it. It's the year 20-whatever, and they took out a basic mechanic from the game just so all the "cool kids" can brag about how hard it was but they persevered and beat it anyway. I play for fun, not for the challenge, not for the victory, not for any accomplishment, achievement or trophy. F. U. N. Plenty of fish in the sea, when I get so stuck that every trick and cheat has been tried several times w/o any hope or sign of success in site, I move on.

And just b/c somehow this is all your fault, you troublesome instigator you ;-) @JaxonH

Things I'ld like to see confirmed and things we won't get but since it's a wishlist -

1. Stage builder - sure it will almost certainly be in there, but has anybody seen or read anything about it yet?
2. A really good stage builder - Brawl was so limited, 3 backgrounds? Give us all the backgrounds and colorful 3D objects to place in it, the first was worse than a Colorforms playset
3. Hub world - I may be the only 1 who wants this but I liked the hub in Nintendo Land, I want to fill it with my trophies and walk amongst them
4. amiibo area - let me play as my amiibo and decorate a home and take them for a stroll
5. Match-making actual lobby - Finding people in Nintendo Land was a fun little diversion, but I want to challenge them to a fight in SSB U. Picking people from a list is so last gen, I want to walk up to both computer NPC and live opponents and challenge them face to face

A Subspace Emissary sequel would be #1 on the list - utilizing purchased amiibo would be PERFECT for a sequel - but they already said we aren't getting it so...

Considering the LL outsold the new 3DS 3 to 1 in collection crazy Japan I expect a lot of these plates will go unsold. Or sold but returned by people trying to them attach to their old 3DS. ;-)

The more I see these the less impressed I am. How often do you or snybody else look at the bottom of your 3DS? I think $1 decals for the top - which could then be used on both old and new 3DS and the XL - would be better than $18 plates. Probably the chinese knockoffs will just be sticker versions of these.

Yeah, good thing you remembered that ;-) Well, I'm glad to finally be of use.

And there's lots of geat upocming games, but now its late and I really dont remember what we were talking about.

20 hours to the ND. I know I'm down on Nintendo a lot but I really am looking forward to this one. So many games to look forward to, I really need to learn to focus on the games ad not the Wii U inability to sell. I'll always care about dates and advertising though.

@JaxonH - "despite any bickering you may read on a fansite"

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was referring too.

"and unfortunately they might stay the only ones for the rest of the generation."

Yoshis Wooly World and Kirbys Curse aren't 2D platformy enough for you? (That's an actual question, not a snide remark.) But no, Mario Maker doesn't count.

"Paper Mario, Mario Strikers and Metroid"

Metroid is the only 1 of those 3 I'ld like revealed at E3, the others could just pop up in the spring pre-E3. Unless they Paper Mario gets a complete make-over and looks more like Paper Monsters Uncut - real paper, not a cartoon - or something else extraordinary that I can't even imagine. It it's just another Paper Mario I don't see that as E3 unveil worthy. Same for Strikers U, which should have been out by now just to block shots on goal w/ the Gamepad - the opposite of shooting at them in Charged w/ the Wii-mote - you would be the goalie via FP view.
