I know they aren't for you, although Olimar is bound to come as he is in Smash.

I think I already mentioned this, but I want the two from Wreck it Ralph and Tinkerbell, the latter mostly because of you, as I had no idea she had one until you brought it to my attention. Still zero interest on DI itself, though.

I was not able to get Little Mac, and a friend said he would get me a Wii Fit Trainer, but I know he will pay a bit more than normal, if he can find her. For Wave 3 I already got Bowser, Megaman and Sonic as I lost Ike and may not get the exclusive ones either.

@rjejr

Whew! I thought you had forgotten about the dual gamepad since you hadn't mentioned it for a long time now.

I doubt we will see that unless Nintendo finds a Wii U selling idea for them. If selling Wii U with one Gamepad seems hard enough, imagine two of them.

I need to check my eshop but Tom is right. They never promised anything and were clear since day 1.

Please dont let that deter you from getting Armillo. Fuzzywuzzy games has nothing to do with this. You can take my word and Jaxon's. The game is worth it.

sinalefa commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

I found the first survey question odd, as it says "so far". If it is what we know now, there is nothing else to be said, so it cannot be "too early to say".

The great thing with amiibo being compatible with multiple games is that you can do many kinds of games, with different levels of dependence on amiibo, to please all kind of players.

I am going from them updating on Thanksgiving to base that they will, but of course I am not sure. Keep in mind that kids will be updating their consoles in Xmas morning and the eShop is updated around noon. I have heard of cautious parents who update the system before Xmas to have it ready for their kids. If Nintendo updates on Wednesday instead I won't complain.

About the Direct, I would say yes. I think last year they wished us Merry Xmas and Happy New Year (with HW) and they haven't done that this year.

sinalefa commented on Demand For amiibo Continues As Pre-Orders For ...:

I missed on Little Mac, the only December amiibo I care about. Ike is unavailable on Amazon too, but I managed to preorder Bowser, Megaman and Sonic.

I hope Nintendo replenishes stock so resellers will be left in the dust with tons of figurines, thus lowering the chance of them taking most of the new amiibo for the next waves.

@rjejr

Is not possible to strike a deal with your kids as in play only when you are there? I know they have the 3ds version so they can get their fix.

If not then unlocking those on 3ds would be your only choice. Sorry to hear it is that important to you, I hope your sons know that.

Not sure if you have checked but in SSBU you register a name at the character select screen as a profile of sorts. I don't use a name so I don't know what gets recorded under each name.

And I don't see the absurdness. Super Mario Galaxy had profiles but the total star bits were shared. And that is the key word here. You can be a team and contribute towards a common goal.

With some of those nigh imposible challenges, I know I would not want to unlock them more than once so all players have access to the rewards.

@rjejr

Well, with recent things like DriveClub, Destiny, etc. it may be a popular word.

@TheItalianBaptist

I actually prefer this one since it not only looks lighthearted but the dev is actually trying to change it a little, even if it is only the camera angle. There is a background, and those stamps may be a hit on Miiverse. Spikey Walls just reeked of a lazy, cynical cash in that actually looked worse than the original.

@rjejr

I don't mind the name. They clone the gameplay, they can also clone the name to avoid false expectations.

Also, if Flappy Bird can be changed to Crappy Bird, then this one could be called Stenchy Bird. I hope no French people take offense on this.

When I make a CN survey for a retail game that I download, I make sure one of the reasons is "To get credit from the DDP" that is one of the choices they give.

Hopefully everyone does the same and Nintendo notices this is important. I know I won't get the same amount of eShop games if they remove it.
