UnseatingKDawg commented on Disney Infinity 3.0 Goes Big With Star Wars Co...:

I got an email from amazon today telling me that the starter pack and Yoda figure I ordered would be able to get to my house sooner.

Original date of arrival - September 4th - September 9th
New date of arrival - September 4th - September 9th

At any rate, I'll be glad to have a new game and some new toys to work with.

I have mine ordered on Amazon, alongside Obi-Wan, Yoda, Mickey, Minnie, and Olaf. And I'm patiently awaiting HulkBuster and Ultron.

I said it before, and I'll say it again - I can finally play as Buzz Lightyear, Spider-Man, and Darth Vader all in one game. The ten-year-old in me is crying tears of joy.

I agree with him - don't like it, don't do it. Heck, I dislike Super Guide in nearly every game it appears in, but I don't complain that it's there. If anything, I just yell at that goofy pig and tell him to stop waving me down with that annoying jingle.

@ASonic3582: Yeah, Walmart might just be due for another. But I looked into the other exclusives as well - they might be more than a coincidence. Shulk and Ness are RPG characters who usually appeal to teenagers - who usually go to GameStop. Meta Knight and Dark Pit are viewed as tough male warrirors - men are more likely to shop at Best Buy. Pokemon are kid-appeal characters - kids shop at ToysRUs. And Jigglypuff and Rosalina are feminine characters, and women are more likely to shop at Target. So in a sense, it kind of makes a "family" of sorts the way it's set up. So I would think that that setup would be more than a coincidence, but that's just me.

At any rate, I'm hoping I can secure that retro pack. They're among the last few characters I need that aren't DLC-based.

@ASonic3582: I wouldn't be so sure about another Walmart exclusive. I work at one and talked to the Nintendo rep who comes in to update the kiosk and displays, and from what he says, Walmart in general doesn't really care to support amiibo. At least some stores don't, anyway. But hey, anything can happen.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America):

Eh, no big deal. Should be taking more time to honor the man anyway.

While I'm waiting to update my next Virtual Console game, I'll do what Iwata would've wanted any fan to do - play and enjoy the games. Might start Oracle of Seasons next.



UnseatingKDawg commented on We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Fas...:

Yeah... No. I don't believe this. Not entirely, anyway. I can understand it takes some time to make sure the controllers work properly through the emulation, and it might take time to get proper clear scans of original manuals, but I really don't think it would slow down production significantly.

At this rate, I'll consider myself lucky if I can upgrade all my imported SNES and N64 games (barring Indiana Jones). I don't even think Genesis or Master System will even have a snuff of a chance this time around.



UnseatingKDawg commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is Hittin...:

"Hopefully" being the key word. It'd be another game for me to upgrade, but, like I figured, N64 on VC dropped as soon as DK64 was released. Still waiting on Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 64, and Yoshi's Story.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

I won't be jumping to NX, at least not at launch. While the Wii U isn't performing well in the market, I personally think it's the best game system I've owned. Don't have to worry about needing a TV in most cases, several games are still fun to play and are downright beautiful when it comes to graphics, and I got to play classics I never thought I'd get to legitimately - like EarthBound, Donkey Kong 64, and Duck Hunt. Then they put Wii games on there too - managed to snag both Punch-Out!! and Metroid Prime Trilogy, both of which I'd have to hunt down otherwise. And I'm very much looking forward to Yoshi's Woolly World and Super Mario Maker.

But for the record, if the words "Virtual Console" come up on this NX thing, I ain't giving that much attention.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

I've been importing a bit more lately myself for amiibo. 'Bout the only way I can really get the ones I want any more. Already ordered Palutena and Dark Pit from Japan - I honestly don't see them hitting my region of America at all, period.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Video: No Matter How Annoyed You Are At Ninten...:

I didn't think the event was that bad. If anything, I got more hyped up for Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Woolly World. Especially since my amiibo will be put to much more use.

The guy who posted this on NeoGAF... I'd say he needs some help. Serious help.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Disney Infinity 3.0 is Announced With Star War...:

I was going to pass on this one, but after hearing all of this - all movies being playable, all characters across said movies, no need to get another starter pack, and another Marvel set being included, I might just look into this. Good thing it releases in fall - my birthday's then, so I can use possible birthday money towards this.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

@bluedogrulez: They ought to. It's bad enough collectors have a hard time due to people like this - it's worse for kids who want them since they have less of an opportunity either due to school or lack of funds.

I know the Walmart I work at had it once for the Gold Marios - 12 were available, and I and 11 others got them the night of release, one per customer. On the other hand, the Walmart my friend works at had 12 Marios... and all 12 went to one person on the night of release because they didn't bother limiting, which is a shame. The only reason I would say that we don't limit the other figures is because we usually only get a maximum of four (on average) of other characters like Mario, Bowser, Zelda, Diddy, etc.
