SquirrelNuts commented on Review: Tecmo Bowl (Wii U eShop / NES):

This is one of the best games ever! It shines brightest with two players. When I was a kid you had to hide your controller from your opponent so they wouldn't pick the counter play on purpose. So many good times with this one.




SquirrelNuts commented on Collectors Rejoice, Rare amiibo Figures Are Ge...:

I am happy knowing that at some point I will be able to acquire all the the amiibo I want, in the package, for less than a dollar each. I am a patient man.

They flood the market, people will still swoop them all up because they think they can get a lot more for them on the secondary market. And they will, for a short time. But in a few years, nobody will give a shit anymore. All those suckers that dropped 2X the retail value (if not more) on these toys will be stuck with almost valueless pieces of plastic.

Can you guys stop using stuff Patcher says in your articles? He is constantly wrong, and he is so annoying. When you quote him, it just gives his position more weight, it's just another soap box for him.

I personally was, and still am, excited to see what Nintendo can do with Quality of Life technology. I think video games and healthcare are starting to see more benefits when used together. It's a smart move for Nintendo, and I doubt they are going to abandon something they have already made enough progress to announce in the first place.



SquirrelNuts commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

You know why NintendoLife are running this garbage right? Because most of the articles here get like 10-30 comments. The last two about Mr. Pranger got over 200 each. Which is more clicks, and thus, more money.

EDIT: Expect them to milk this for all the clicks for the foreseeable future.



SquirrelNuts commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. - 1985:

Some people have a song they listen to when they are sad or generally bummed that cheers them up. Some people have a movie that does that for them. For me, World 1-1 is my security blanket of choice. When I need a break from the world, if something has me really down, or if I need to just reconnect with my childhood I grab my 3DS, or my Wii U and go right for Super Mario Bros.

I never play all the way through except on rare occasion. Really just getting through the end of 1-2 and warping is enough. I love this game. It's the first video game I remember playing way back in 1986 when I was 5. It's still with me to this day.



SquirrelNuts commented on Nintendo Not Looking To Churn Out Yearly Seque...:

There may not be a lot of games scheduled right now, that's true. But you have to admit the amount of games available currently is rather robust. I have over 40 games myself for the Wii U alone. (NX announcements put a nail in the coffin of new games though. )

Yes, their approach to DLC is awesome. I think it's a good bet that they will continue on their current path in the future with other titles.

EDIT: Nuts.



SquirrelNuts commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

I highly doubt that the majority of amiibo sales are due to scalpers. You could never really prove that anyway. I have sold amiibo for profit on eBay, but I collect them too. I'm not a scalper, but if one I own becomes worth more than double than what I paid I will sell it. I think there is a lot of that going on.

So again, I HIGHLY doubt the sales are due to scalpers. It's a mixed bag.



SquirrelNuts commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

In regards to Nintendo not providing enough stock. They have sold millions of these things. MILLIONS. How many Wii U units have sold world wide? I believe that they produced enough stock based on how many compatible systems they have sold. I would put my own hard earned dollars down that if the Wii U had sold in the PS4 area of sales, there would have been a lot more amiibo on those shelves. You can't blame a company for watching numbers and basing production decisions on those numbers.

In regards to the tweet. That's how eBay works. They know it. We know it. So it's not daft of them to promote themselves in this way. In fact, it's the opposite. They just told a ton of people that you can buy one of these things there. And, if you are willing to pay that much for one and the seller doesn't end up getting one thus leaving you out in the rain, eBay terms of service cover the purchaser so that they are not left paying for something they didn't receive.

(Sunglasses drop down on my face.)
Deal with it.
