SavoirFaire commented on Collectors Be Warned, Some amiibo Figures Will...:

First of all I'll believe we are getting every character in smash when I see it. They've got a good two years to milk this rotating of the roster. If Amiibo bombs then I don't expect they'll go through with the whole roster.

Second, it is beyond time for an amiibo direct. $13 a pop for a souped up computer fighter in smash is a bit much. $13 for whatever this gets us in other games may be a bit much too, but without knowing what that is, we have to go on Nintendos track record which is... Not so good. Amiibos have a lot of potential, and it seems Nintendo is blowing the hype just like they blew the launch of the Wii U.

That said, I'm likely buying a half dozen total at launch and ummm second launch, knowing full on almost nothing about them. Would be great to actually know other things they will do.



SavoirFaire commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

I'm happy to hear positive news but I am also realistic: Nintendo will be the "outsider" console forever (until/unless sony or MS give up). Anyone that thinks Nintendos next console will get any more 3rd party support than the Wii U is delusional: we will hear the same excuses gen after gen. They are not actively trying to compete with sony or ms, and the last time they did (arguably) was the GameCube, and ppl hold that up as a model of failure!



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

Enjoyed the dirext and I am re-sold on getting the package with the adapter.

However one thing I did take away from this dirext is the Wii U version is not done, and is in essence being released too early to hit holidays. Don't really have a huge problem with that myself.

At least the internet didn't let me down: get mewtwo, complain. 3ds version is now garbage. All nice and predictable!



SavoirFaire commented on Link amiibo Compatibility Confirmed for Hyrule...:

From the article:
"As Link's the only compatible figurine so far, it opens the possibility that some games will be character-specific, as opposed to supporting the whole range" Are there really going to be people going "I brought my DK Amiibo! I want DK as playable in Zelda U!1!!1!!" ? I hope not, but this is the internet after all...

I REALLY hope nobody thinks that any game, aside from smash, is going to "support" all the Amiibos! Not that Nintendo is helping with their marketing and information campaign on the subject...

As I have said countless (ok maybe 5) times, Nintendo needs to make sports franchises that utilize the Amiibo's + stock characters as the players. Do something to break EA's stranglehold on sports franchises!



SavoirFaire commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (North America):

Since I have already pre paid for hyrule warriors dlc, nothing for me this week. I will be getting the gba castlevania once my backlog clears again. (Also holding out hope for some 20% off eshop cards around the holidays like last year.



SavoirFaire commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (Europe):

@Grumblevolcano thanks I have already purchased the dlc, so looking forward to it.

For the topic at hand, I will be getting pretty much anything rare releases on the wii u VC, so will definitly pick these up. Do think it is odd that we still have zero news for n64 titles. Hopefully support will be a holiday surprise this year.



SavoirFaire commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

The only thing that differentiates a capcom from an activision, ubisoft, or EA is that they don't have a strong franchise in a popular genre they can milk to death. It -could- have been the RE series as a survival horror game, but they kinda turned it into a zombie shooter. Oh, also Capcom doesn't start with a vowel! 😎



SavoirFaire commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

I thought this was a little too good to be true. Works with everything, with fewer buttons? Ah well, I will likely snag another pro controller then.

However, all of you wanted GCN games on the VC... We haven't even got n64 games yet! One step at a time!



SavoirFaire commented on B Dasher is Speeding Onto The Legend of Zelda ...:

I am more interested in the tracks over the racers and karts (esp since additional peach and Mario variants = lame in my book).

Wario gold mine is a great choice. I wonder what the other 3 retro choices will be. I'd love to see a few more 3ds tracks brought over as I thought mk7 had a lot of great tracks.



SavoirFaire commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:

I really hope we get some amiibo related sports games. I dislike the hyper-realistic sports games we have now (as well as EA...) and would enjoy making an amiibo sports team. Peach, Zelda, Rosalina, Samus and Daisy would make a great basketball team with their mastery of the fundamentals. No dunking, sadly.



SavoirFaire commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

@rjejr Collectors Edition? For a game on a Nintendo system? I think you may be waiting a loooooooong time. Only edition like that I can think of is Arkham City, and that is because the game was out long before. Do any Nintendo games release "twice" on the system, outside of Nintendo Selects (which admittedly were pre-DLC)?



SavoirFaire commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

Sheesh when did a 7 get treated like a kiss of death? You'd think this game just got a 5!

Preordered this and am looking forward to playing... In 2.5 weeks grrrrr



SavoirFaire commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

Hmm I haven't played the demo enough to even notice. I just figured it would also have d-pad support. Can't believe it doesn't!

My old NES controllers (even a NES Max) still work fine, so I wonder if people are just being too harsh on their controllers.



SavoirFaire commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

I could have sworn I read the treehouse was going to give us WII U release date. Oh well!

I'm still holding out hope for a 2014 release, but I am personally expecting it to be post-Black Friday. I don't care when Watch Dogs launches, it will not do well on the Wii U.



SavoirFaire commented on Nintendo Confirms Week Two Details for Super S...:

Really wish they'd bring the oracle games over to Wii U, or we'd get definitive word that GBC games are just never ever coming to Wii U, so we know. I actually have them as cartridges, but would love a more "permanent" copy (which is generously assuming Ninentdo goes modern with digital games in the near future, and we all know what assuming does...)



SavoirFaire commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

I almost dread Smash DLC. The whines and rants from people who's favorite was a DLC character will last beyond this universe and into the next. We'll have a game where 2 million people brought it, but 5 million are not buying the DLC and burning their copies because they don't want to pay for a character they loved that should have been free and was withheld b/c Nintendo has lost their way and turned into EA.

I however am looking forward to the 3DS version, and I was going to pass on it initially. DLC or not I plan to play as it is something to do on my lunch break that I seem to never take...



SavoirFaire commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Season Pass i...:

Article doesn't say Wii U isn't getting DLC, just not getting a season pass. I'd love a clarification.

However, consider the Arkham Origins Season Pass was refunded, then it gives you 2 scenarios:

1) Nintendo paid for refund, and after being burned by WB, is being tougher on their Season Pass, and therefore, WB opted to not try.
2) WB paid for refund, and their beancounters said no-go on another Season Pass for Wii U.

It is sad that we can get leaks about SSB4 roster, but can't get the details on inside-the-industry items, as I'd really like to know.



SavoirFaire commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Season Pass i...:

I'm one of the people that got the arkham origins season pass, then got it refunded.

Also I am someone that brought the 4 Injustice characters, and never saw the final 2.

They don't get 3 strikes with me. I may buy the game bc my daughter likes to play it, but they can keep their half-explicative DLC.

I guess it is popular to blame Nintendo, and maybe it is even correct. If that is the case these devs need to lay it on the line and spell out in public what the problems are, because otherwise is just looks lazy, greedy, and/or incompetent.
