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


I am glad you really don't care about most amiibo. I will get the European version of this one instead of trying to hunt one.

Also, I will say it from today: Happy Birthday! Since I only know it is on July I start from day 1. Have a great month!



sinalefa commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:


Dont think they have a Holiday big game, so they should use X, Star Fox, AC amiibo game and Mario Maker and advertise to each age group. Japan already got X though. For Mario Maker there will be a ton of user made levels by Xmas.

Price drop or selected amiibo would do wonders too.



sinalefa commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:

As with HW they will use a bunch of existing amiibo instead of making new ones. And they are not essential or anything. I guess that is smart but I still wanted a Peppy amiibo as I wanted a Fi amiibo.

Splatoon was the only game that had me excited enough to open the amiibo and get the content.



sinalefa commented on Splatoon Holds Its Territory in the UK Charts:

As with the Witcher, I don't care if Batman takes Splatoon out of the top 10 next week. Both are great games.

But then again, of those three Splatoon is the only new IP, so it is remarkable to see it afloat for so long there.



sinalefa commented on Début Splatfest Postponed in North America :


I see it like a Gamerscore. It is common to assume a person with a high one is very good, but could just mean doing menial tasks to get achievements.

And level is there also for bragging rights. Again, playing a lot not always means being good at a game.Ranked matches is generally where you go expecting equally skilled opponents.



sinalefa commented on Début Splatfest Postponed in North America :


Level means nothing. I can get to lv 20 without winning a single match if I play enough and sometimes a low lv team will beat a higher one.

Regarding Splatfest it is not the end of the world. They are cancelling and fixing it instead of releasing a mess and I am sure they waited until now to tell us because they thought they could fix it on time but could not.

Kudos for the better than normal spelling :)



sinalefa commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

I know we were barely shown new games and some of those are not what most people expected. Does not negate the fact that we will be playing great games like X and Yoshi before the year is done.

And that final Mario part with Miyamoto, Tezuka and Kondo playing music together was truly priceless.



sinalefa commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

I love Shenmue a lot but I found this KS so fishy. If Nintendo can fund Bayo 2 Sony could easily fund Shenmue 3, without any KS to force people to show their interest with their wallets. If they are helping, why on PC too and not a PS4 exclusive? How comes the backstory, something that is a must for games so old and on different consoles, is a stretch goal and not even part of the initial package? Yakuza 3 had it for the first two games.

I am afraid this will finish the Shenmue tale but not live to the standard of the other games.



sinalefa commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

A few new games but overall great games and we got dates for Yoshi and X. Starfox exceeded my expectations and Mario Maker looks big. Plus AC amiibo. Online Zelda.

Wanted more new things but I know Nintendo announces them out of E3.



sinalefa commented on Nindies@Home E3 Promotion Offers Wii U eShop D...:

This sounds awesome.


Even a demo hater like me is excited for this. Demo + discount is great!

And kudos to your kid for inheriting his father's sense of humour. :)

BTW, we are in the week of leaks, so when do we have a leak on your birthday? Just 15 days away, embargo should not last much now ;)



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker Stole the Sho...:

3 months ago I would not have played any game online, and Splatoon happened.

Now I say I don't like to create levels or play levels by others, so I wonder if this will do the trick for me. Having all 4 visual styles was a great idea.



sinalefa commented on New Yoshi's Woolly World Video Shows Off Fluff...:

Ok, Day 1 whenever that is. Which brings me to


If Nintendo cared about you they would have released the NA date by now. ;)

Maybe this will push you to get the Inkling Girl amiibo. And although I can stand hard games I do appreciate when they add the rjejr mode. As you have mentioned, if you buy a DVD you get to watch the whole movie or listen to the whole album. With games it should be the same.



sinalefa commented on Mighty No. 9 Features on Wii U and 3DS Version...:

They should have worked with Nintendo to have an amiibo for it. Would have been nice for stripping us of the statue and a lot of people would have either double dip on a Nintendo system or bought the amiibo on its own.

But I guess that to afford amiibo Inafune would plug us yet another KS campaign, so maybe it is better this way.



sinalefa commented on Splatoon Holds Onto Top 5 Territory in the UK ...:

But I thought UK hated Nintendo, and colorful games and....

Is it a shooter? That explains it ;)

Sarcasm aside, I am happy to see these results. This is the only game I want to play online.


Actually a local store here gave a free Gold Mario if you purchased the Splatoon Wii U bundle. Nintendo could even keep the price but bundle the three pack. Get people hooked on amiibo right from the start.
