Stuffgamer1 commented on Iwata Doesn't Feel amiibo Has Shown Its Full P...:

@XCWarrior To be fair I buy them for both the look AND functionality. My entire collection is open for that purpose. But since it's a dual approach, I definitely agree that I don't want lousy cards for the same functionality. But we should remember that replacing figurines was only one possible use of the cards...they could also develop a game that makes use of them like Eye of Judgement on PS3...only harder to copy thanks to NFC in the card.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Reported GameStop Memo Shows Massive Delay in ...:

Well...I'm stuck in an unusual situation here. I DID place my preorders before the cut-off date, but my GameStop closed last week and my reservations were all manually transferred to the other store in the mall. So now I wonder if they have my original order date in the system or if I'm going to be screwed due to no fault of my own.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Hyrule Warriors 'Ganon Pack' DLC to Bring Fres...:

@TobiasAmaranth: Doesn't make much sense to squeeze out a tiny patch for that now with the major patch coming so soon. We can manage until then.

Now...max level raised AGAIN? Good grief, my highest is still only in the 120's! Of course, gameplay momentum slowed down here recently...a problem I hope to rectify soon.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Mario Party 10 Official Website Prompts Specul...:

We did already see Rosalina and DK in the Mario Party 10 amiibo trailer a couple weeks ago, actually...since then, I've just worked on the belief that they were DEFINITELY coming in a future wave. Nintendo wants to sell amiibo anyway, right? :P



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th February (North America):

We FINALLY get Game & Watch Gallery 3! About damn time. Mappy Land is a nice surprise too, as a relatively obscure nostalgic title for me. And of course, Hyrule Warriors DLC at last. Great week for me, and I find it funny how that so strongly contrasts the opinions of the first two commenters today. :P



Stuffgamer1 commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

Approaching 200 hours on the game, and we only just finished the first two Adventure maps and moved on to TP. Problem is there's a HUGE difficulty leap between Master Quest and TP, and now we're facing down a buttload of grinding to stand a chance there. Unfortunate side-effect of using co-op for the whole game, which makes things easier so you grind as you go less. Many of our characters are still around level 70, which is NO GOOD on TP, let alone MM I'm sure.

Also...anybody know if the title update will hit before the pointlessly delayed DLC in America? I wanna delete some skills, dangit!



Stuffgamer1 commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

Since my Wii U's Wii disc drive is broken (doesn't recognize Wii discs, but Wii U discs work just fine), it's actually CHEAPER for me to grab the best games at $10 each than to get the system repaired (Nintendo wants $175). So this is actually PERFECT for me, especially with it reading existing save data! Please release Fortune Street this way, Nintendo!



Stuffgamer1 commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

I'm totally in that completionist group on this one...I grew up playing both versions, but I was holding out for the added features of this one. As soon as I saw it release in Japan some months ago, I was just waiting for NOA to catch up, and I'm very happy they did. :)



Stuffgamer1 commented on Toys "R" Us amiibo Pre-Orders Cancelled Again:

Of course GameStop hasn't been having these problems. Preorders are a MAJOR element of their business, so they know what the hell they're doing with them. Even Best Buy has a relatively decent amount of experience from what I can see. TRU and Target are both obviously clueless, though. I can say from personal experience that Target was clueless TEN YEARS AGO. Sad they haven't worked it out in that time.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

Dang...and here I thought I was doing well with 4,573 points. Of course, I didn't buy a lot of eShop games or download retail (save my Pikmin 3 freebie), so that was almost all VC and DLC. Anyway, I think Nintendo fans in the know can agree that two years of free money back just for using and enjoying the service was a great way to diminish the practical console cost. This was a fantastic promotion and I'm sad to see it go, but it was one heck of a deal while it lasted. :)



Stuffgamer1 commented on Club Nintendo Adds Two 3DS Game Card Cases and...:

Yay, game cases! I have one of these from the first set way back when, but now I have too many games to put in it so I've been needing a second. Missed out on the second wave a while back, but not this time!

Sucks they never make these shirts big enough, though. Even if I was skinny I couldn't pull off a 1X because I'm too tall! This is America, guys...size accordingly.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

I never got a chance to preorder to begin with, but I had the page bookmarked in case they resupplied. I just checked it a minute ago, and the page for the Lucario Amiibo is gone from their site altogether. In fact, ALL of the third-wave Amiibo are now delisted. Come on guys, get it together!



Stuffgamer1 commented on Demand For amiibo Continues As Pre-Orders For ...:

This is because people like me rushed out and preordered everything we could in light of recent stock concerns. Only natural that would push sales like crazy...I just hope Nintendo will pay attention and find a way to increase production.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Reportedly States That No First Wave ...:

@WaLzgi: True...but my brother needed to be picked up from work at the mall anyway, and I like some of the people in my store. I don't regret the trip. Also hit Best Buy on the way out...just Lucario and Rosalina left out of Wave 3 for me...Waves 1 and 2 are covered. :)



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Reportedly States That No First Wave ...:

Glad to see Nintendo isn't actually THAT stupid...I just hope they can respond to the high demand quickly. There are already a few THIRD wave Amiibos sold out on Amazon, let alone second. I went ahead and snapped up preorders on every one I can just in case. Only major problem remaining is those darned retailer-exclusives. Planning a trip to GameStop tomorrow to see about Shulk and possibly whatever I can't get on Amazon ATM. I gots the Amiibo fever for reals! Or something. :P



Stuffgamer1 commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

It seems AWFULLY fast to discontinue these. I mean heck, I was in Walmart the other day and saw some first-gen Skylanders on the shelf...those are THREE YEARS OLD now! But somehow first-gen first-wave Amiibos can't last a month? I seriously doubt this is accurate, to be honest. I know Nintendo said some Amiibos would be more limited than others, but this is absurd!

With all that said, I knew these three would be some of the first to go one way or another, so I preordered them ASAP. Glad I did. Hope they fix this for those who didn't have the chance.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

I saw this coming the instant the things were announced...but it's actually worse than I thought it might be. I expected maybe a short selection of save files, like you have to pick 12 StreetPass titles max. ONE at a time is INCREDIBLY restrictive...but it won't matter until more games trying to write to them release anyway, so it's all academic for now.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack Now Available ...:

@shaneoh I don't find the games exciting because I already buy the games I want when they release. 200 coins (roughly on average) for a game I could pay less than $10 for is a bad deal, straight up. Meanwhile, physical goods may wind up on eBay, but they will be EXPENSIVE. I paid around $30 to import Tingle's Balloon Fight a few years ago.

Looks like the incomplete version of Galaxy's soundtrack is going cheap...but the two-disc complete version is crazy expensive. Either way, I'd rather get it straight from Nintendo and have a quality program instead of this crap we're stuck with now.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Review: Tappingo 2 (3DS eShop):

"The soundtrack also leans toward a slightly mellower ambiance than the first game while retaining the same light, quirky, 16-bit feel; this is a plus, as Tappingo is definitely a game made for chilling out."

I disagree...I much preferred the soundtrack in the first game. Hardly a deal-breaker for a great game like this, but a minor disappointment nonetheless.



Stuffgamer1 commented on North American Club Nintendo Replenishes Its P...:

@Mercy_Lost: You expect LOGIC from Nintendo? Heh...I don't think so. Anyway, I'd gladly trade you. Free cheap games are not my idea of a good reward for spending hundreds of dollars on...well, GAMES. Often including the ones they're trying to give me for free. Meanwhile, you guys have a Mario Galaxy soundtrack, cute Yoshi plush, and plenty of other physical goodies. Those points cards are pathetic at this point, though...should be replaced with eShop cash cards by now. :P



Stuffgamer1 commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

@Azooooz: I figured that was what you meant. Sony has proven that region locking CAN be done on a game-by-game basis, as the PS3 is mostly region-free, but some titles (okay, just one as of now) do lock. Every disc is region coded (hence the region one logo on the side of the American boxes), but the system normally ignores that. Nintendo COULD do the same thing, or even let it be an optional thing like Sony did. But they won't, because Nintendo. sigh



Stuffgamer1 commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

@Azooooz: Since region-locking is an inherently software-based thing nowadays, it theoretically COULD, yes. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.

@XCWarrior: It's not just about Japanese games, y'know. I have more PAL DS games than Japanese anyway, simply because publishers (third-party AND Nintendo themselves) couldn't be bothered to release their products in America. Then you have the PAL gamers who had to import the likes of Retro Game get the point. Sure, you COULD import Japanese titles and muddle through (I did so on Tingle's Balloon Fight since it's not text-heavy anyway), but this is really more about accessibility for games already in English for a lot of us.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Tappingo 2 Release Pushed Back a Week on Ninte...:

@HugoSmits I guess so...really, it's a perspective I have a hard time relating to because I NEVER go to or the eShop to just browse randomly...and if I did, I'd be happy to see more games available in the various categories, "featured" slots be damned. Meanwhile...well, gamers are known for being selfish, and I've been waiting for this since I finished the first one! Not an excuse...just being honest. :P

To be equally honest, one week delay doesn't mean as much as I get older, so meh. Just an interesting discussion point, IMO.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Tappingo 2 Release Pushed Back a Week on Ninte...:

What came out today that would compete with this, exactly? Sure, there were three 3DS eShop games, but they're all VERY different titles. I'd get it if they were all puzzlers as well, but I think this is another case of Nintendo being overly concerned about nothing. There's nothing for me on 3DS this week (except Layton v. Feenie, but that's retail and I don't really count that), especially with another lack of VC. Sure, I like the expanded VC support on Wii U, but why do that at the cost of the other platform? Some of these NES games could at least be getting simultaneous release...and that's coming from someone who doesn't even want NES games on 3DS (just it's better to get them out for those who want them instead of wasting time like this).

Aaaaaanyway...nothing for me, but I totally would've bought this in a heartbeat. To me, this is a delay without purpose.



Stuffgamer1 commented on These Official Wisdom Tree T-Shirts Are So Bad...:

@sketchturner: I'm with you there. I also like the Bible Buffet one,'s pretty tempting.

For those who are not aware, a new 20th anniversary version of Super Noah's Ark 3D is actually on Steam Greenlight right now. It's quite interesting to see Wisdom Tree coming back into the public eye, especially as a legit fan of some of their work.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

@SparkOfSpirit: I had no idea this had ever happened before...that makes me feel a little better about it.

@brooks83: I didn't know there were any problems with it. I DO know that since it was a PAL import, it actually ran at 50hz on Wii...I compared it to the Japanese version and the difference was obvious. Are you talking about that or something else?



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

What the heck? I went to the eShop to grab Ufouria...which I already had on Wii. Unlike every other game I've ever tried to upgrade, it still wants to charge me the full $5. Anybody else having this problem?



Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

My reward for spending a lot of money on Nintendo products is...a free download of a bunch of games I already own. WAY TO GO, MORONS! After all the previous years' rewards, this could only be a bigger letdown if they said "sorry, your Elite status gets you NOTHING this year." I thought the point of a customer loyalty program was to make people HAPPY they're spending so much money on you...

@Spartacus3765: Don't forget Doc Louis' Punch-Out!! the first year...that's what I took instead of the hat. Sure, it was a downloadable game...but it wasn't available any other way!



Stuffgamer1 commented on Harvest Moon 3 And Lufia: The Legend Returns R...:

So we're finally getting some Lufia on VC...and they start with the THIRD? The one comprised almost entirely of rouguelike-style randomly generated dungeons and honestly goes on too long for its own good. It has some interesting systems, but I've never finished it. Oh well, probably give it another go anyway.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:

The kid in the background seems superfluous, but I suspect they changed the dog in an effort to avoid misinformed claims of "racism" for the original design. It's sad, but I bet someone would make that argument otherwise, unaware and/or uncaring the game came from Japan in the first place.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:

I'm no Best Buy regular...but this deal is enough to make me go there now and then. That said, I still have a good bit left on my account from the LAST time this deal ran...sad result of such slow releases. So I really don't NEED more right now anyway.



Stuffgamer1 commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

This is definitely a classic for me, and I do very much want to see it on Wii U VC at the least...but we still have NO Squenix Wii U VC support outside of Japan so far... sigh
