RupeeClock commented on Dark Pit amiibo Exclusive To Best Buy In North...:

Odd choice for exclusivity, I would have expected Zero Suit Samus or Ganondorf.

I'm so thankful that the UK does not have this exclusivity nonsense though.
Dark Pit is a great looking amiibo actually, glad to have it along with Pit, I'm a huge fan of Kid Icarus Uprising.

As nice as it is, I think I will pass.
I have 7200 stars currently, 540 were due to expire this month so I had to spend 500 on a Home Menu theme, which is actually really nice.

Holding out for that Club Nintendo Goodbye coin personally.

RupeeClock commented on Super Mario Maker Producer Tells Fans Not To E...:

Super Mario Maker came to be, because the NSMBU team had developed powerful level editing tools and wanted to work with that further.
The end product was an accessible level editor that's fun to play with, and offers a wealth of functionality.

With Zelda titles, there are no consistent dungeon design mechanics to tie the series together, the original NES Zelda was considerably different from Link to the Past on the SNES, to the Gameboy, Gameboy Advance and 3DS installments.

RupeeClock commented on There Are Now Over 600 DSiWare Games And Apps:

There absolutely were quite a few DSiWare that I loved, such as Shantae, many Art Style entries, some Popcap games, but it never really quite hit its stride like the eShop did.

With the advent of 3DS eShop, its download titles accomplished so much more in terms of content and quality, my 3DS eShop collection far outweighs my DSiWare collection.

Shulk and Little Mac disappeared from Nintendo UK Store quickly!
But Game.co.uk still has these and more in stock, fantastic!

I've already bought or pre-ordered all the amiibo I need from other sources, seems like if I'd waited a while I could've gotten Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer a bit cheaper.

Good to see that Wii Fit Trainer is actually available, along with Wario and Captain Falcon. Where's Rosalina & Luma though?

Game did not restock Rosalina & Luma, Pit or Toon Link.

RupeeClock commented on Square Enix Shuts Down Dragon Quest VII Fan Tr...:

Square Enix are pretty infamous for Cease and Desist orders for any alterations of their games or even fan projects.
Be it rom hack, fan translation or fan game made from scratch.

So it's really no surprise that they C&D'd this fan translation. I can only hope that Square Enix actually be fair and supply us with an actual translation. That's obviously what prompted a fan translation in the first place, demand for it.

@maceng Yes, it's 530 coins per play.
Most plays you can expect to get 330 coins, you can sometimes manage 530 coins, or you might get unlucky and only get 30 or even 0 coins.
It does take days, in my waking hours I might amass roughly 10,000 coins a day.
Baring in mind you only need to play it for about 5-10 minutes every two and a half hours.

RupeeClock commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Flogs Rare amiibo i...:

It's been my experience that certain harder to find amiibo, have been surprisingly easy and affordable to find on Amazon through Japanese imports.

Ones like Little Mac, Toon Link, Zelda and Pit without breaking the bank,
Although others like Rosalina are still too expensive.

You can actually still get the Meta Knight Bundle from what I can tell, it's just the individual Meta Knight amiibo is out of stock.

Still plenty of Kirby though!

Still, that the individual figurines have sold out already, shows that consumers appear more interested in the figurines themselves than in their functionality for the game.
And that's even though the Fire Emblem Amiibo have really good use for this game.
