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.

@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.

Well, I was hoping to upgrade Super Mario RPG and Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures, since those are the last two SNES games I have stuck on the Wii Menu. Oh well... At least I can look forward to upgrading Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Yoshi's Story, Paper Mario, Mario Kart 64, and Super Smash Bros. And then wait patiently for them to get on the stick for SEGA Genesis.

UnseatingKDawg commented on Review: Yoshi's Island DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

I wasn't too fond of the VC setup, which I kind of learned the hard way (you'd think with all those screen options, one would've disabled the DS border). But I liked this game on the DS, even if the difficulty ramped up insanely. I actually got Nintendo Power because of this game - took advantage of the offer in the game's packaging so I could get the player's guide.

@jamesplusgames: I'm not complaining about Diddy being nerfed - I just think it's ridiculous that these "pros" complain to the point that Nintendo patches a character they can't beat. I know I'm not a pro myself, but if I were called that, I'd make sure I live up to the name - as in trying to find ways around characters others are good at. Not begging Nintendo patch the character in question. I mean, I have some trouble against certain characters my friends play as, and I have a hard time controlling certain characters, but I'm not asking for the characters to be changed either. And that's how I think these "pros" in the tournament scene should behave, not complaining about the OP character of the week.

I would like to think that the "pros" who play competitively in tournaments would form strategies and such to combat characters they can't defeat (or rather, the players who are really good with said characters), but no. They just complain until a patch is made. Oh well.

Eh, judging by the confirmed artists (I only find The Rolling Stones good out of THAT list) and the new guitar controllers, I think me and my family will pass on this one.

I mean, I have no problem with innovation, but I think they should've stuck with the classic colored buttons. Especially since we'd have to get new controllers regardless of the version we'd be getting.

@Porky: I clearly stated i'm trying to help my friends out - I have three friends who want the Gold Mario amiibo, and they don't have a lot of time between school and work. So I'm merely just looking to get a hold of them and they'll just pay me back what I payed. It's not the first time we've done this, and it probably won't be the last - these things are hard to obtain, and we're taking every advantage we can so we can actually collect them.

Well, I'm working the 20th, so I might just be lucky enough to snag one during my shift.

Only problem is trying to help out my friends - I got away with buying two Toon Links at once, but I might not be able to get away with four Gold Marios. Guess I'll just have to find out.

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

I have to agree with people above - Ninrendo needs to focus more on stock than what games have compatibility. Granted, I like watching my troop of warriors have at it on Smash and earn goodies in the process, and I like getting random presents whenever I pop in Hyrule Warriors, but the main reason I got these was because the figures are just cool, period. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely willing to see what they can come up with, but you need the figures to actually do so.

I also kinda see the cards as a a double-edged sword too - definitely great for 3DS for on the go, but at the same time it feels like they're just more willing to give up on making more figures, which I really don't see as a good thing.

Let's see...

I picked Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Kirby, and Pikachu at GameStop on a midnight release for both Pokemon games last year.

Then I grabbed Fox in late November at the Walmart I work at, as there were only 3 left in the store.

I managed to find Zelda first at another GameStop and paid with store credit. Luigi, I ordered from Walmart.com with the money I got from SavingsCatcher. I then got Little Mac, Captain Falcon, and Pit as imports from Japan (a tad expensive, but I've been doing odd jobs like shoveling snow, and that does pay nicely). I got Diddy Kong from a guy in Missouri - which was hilarious when it arrived in a toaster box. My sister was bewildered trying to figure out why I'd be getting a toaster in the mail.

I then pre-ordered Bowser, Sheik, Toon Link, and Sonic from GameStop. Bowser arrived first, even before February, Sheik and Toon Link arrived around the middle of the month, and Sonic will finally get here tomorrow. I ordered Lucario from a seller in Japan on eBay (he really ships them fast and has them wrapped up nice for free shipping).

Then there was Rosalina... my friends managed to get ahold of their own at Target, whereas I ordered mine off of a Japanese seller on eBay (different than the other guy). It shipped around the same time as Lucario, but didn't arrive around the same time. Which got me paranoid. So I panicked and bought one off of a guy in Virginia. Had a good laugh when both arrived in the mail on the same day. But I wouldn't say I'm entirely out of luck with the Japanese one - it's still in its packaging and could come in handy.

I've now since pre-ordered PAC-MAN and Ness from some website, and Wario and Charizard from the amazon.uk site. And there's still 12 more I want to get when they get released.
