Yosher commented on Rumour: Wave 3 amiibo Release Dates Revealed f...:

That's.. pretty odd, to devide them this way. I wonder why. In Europe, these are released in simply 2 'waves' with a month apart. I got one half today, and will get the other half next month. I was also a little confused why there were only 8 amiibo listed there, but then I remembered the store exclusive ones... sorry for you Americans who have to deal with that crap.

Yosher commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

I take it the Japanese Club Nintendo will go, too?

What I'd give away for Club Nintendo in a heartbeat anyway, is a program that allows you to download games for free on one system so long as you have it for another system. So, if you'd have Super Mario Bros downloaded on Wii U, you can get it for free on 3DS. ..there was a name for this but I forgot it. :P

Yosher commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

I really wonder what the new loyalty programme will hold. At least we won't have to worry about expiration dates on our stars/coins anymore. Either way, it's sad to see Club Nintendo go. It was introduced over here in Europe during the GameCube era, and I stepped in relatively early. I managed to snag a relatively good haul during the time it was going.

Also sad that they never released a Flower and Star Cup trophy to complete the Mario Kart cup trophies though, it feels like an incomplete set right now! Maybe I'll have those custom-made sometime, if possible.

I wanna get them all. Both the Super Mario and Smash Bros collection of amiibo figures. I don't even care that much about the game compatibility; that's mostly an extra for me, personally. At least, until there's something truly interesting that can be done with these amiibo.

I just can't look at anything Resident Evil right now without being sad that Revelations 2 is skipping the Wii U, after having a great deal of fun with the first. On both 3DS and Wii U. I've seen this stuff years ago anyway.

@Hy8ogen I don't think you can blame people who buy from scalpers. If somebody REALLY wants to have something like this, and it's the ONLY way to obtain one of these anymore, then of course they're going to HAVE to buy from these scalpers.

So yeah, it is what it is, and it -is- the fault of those scalpers. And partly Nintendo's for making this one so awfully limited. And I think something needs to be done to stop this kind of stuff from happening.

Man, seeing that Ness amiibo just makes me wish all the more that Lucas was still in the game. I haven't played his game myself, but I've seen someone else play through it, and it just made me love the little guy. Hope he'll return as DLC and still get his own amiibo that way as well.

Either way, I'll (try to) get all these amiibo!

@Shadowkiller97 They mentioned that they were planning to release multiple style amiibo of the same character from the very beginning though, I think. Besides, what's the big deal, really? You just get to pick your favourite version of that character this way. If you don't like the more generic looking ones of the Super Mario line, then just buy the Smash Bros version. It's all about options, I'd say. And I'd like a Yarn Yoshi-style Yoshi amiibo too, but I think that was never really a realistic expectation in the first place.

Yosher commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 14th January, Wi...:

Here's hoping for some Yoshi Woolly World news. Hopefully we'll get a Woolly Yoshi pre-order bonus for it!

Otherwise looking forward to news from both Zelda games, Mario Maker, and Splatoon. Oh, and possible release dates for some of the Super Smash Bros DLC that they promised, and maybe a first glance at Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 (in video form, that is). And some information on what amiibo support holds for games like Captain Toad, Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Party 10, and others.

Aside from all that, maybe a fun little surprise or two. Maybe we'll finally get an update on the Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei game that they announced two years ago?

@FritzFrapp I just tried again just now after you mentioned it just to be sure, but no change. I'll have to miss out on it, despite being one of the 'lucky' ones to receive an e-mail. I honestly don't understand why they can't make use of other payment methods. Very amateuristic, I think. But, oh well, c'est la vie.

Yosher commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

@MJKOP I don't know if that's just for your country then or something, but I only had the option to use a credit card. I even e-mailed Nintendo asking if there was any other payment option I could use, and the response I got from them also said that I can ONLY use a credit card to pay for it. No PayPal or whichever other payment option, only credit card.

Yosher commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

@scamander Nobody I know has a credit card. Shouldn't even be a problem in the first place if Nintendo would get with the times and allowed multiple ways of payment. But that's just Nintendo being Nintendo sadly. Sorry to hear you're left out entirely though.

Yosher commented on Nintendo of America Partners Up With Apex 2015...:

@Kasplat I think Project M has its unbalanced shenanigans going on as well. http://clashtournaments.com/project-m-3-02-final-tier-list/
I really doubt Project M is so favoured because of so-called 'rebalancing', but rather because people are so stuck on Melee's physics that they just can't adjust to the newer game's physics. Melee fans can be really annoying when they keep bashing the newer Smash games because of all kinds of stuff, like them being slower, lack of wavedashing and whatnot, and in my eyes, Project M is the basically by-product of all that bashing because it 'fixes' Brawl's issues, when in reality, they're just creating entirely new issues themselves, and some of the things they 'fixed' didn't even need fixing in the first place.

That, and they pretty much completely ignored the PAL players until recently when they announced they'd be bringing it to PAL regions. Only took them, like, 4 whole years. So yeah, sorry Project M, but you're far, far too late in my book. And I think Smash Bros 4 (at LEAST on Wii U) is just as competitively viable, if not moreso, than Project M.

I'm sure they'll bring the game back anyway, when Nintendo leaves the scene again.

Yosher commented on Nintendo of America Partners Up With Apex 2015...:

Nobody here prefers new official games over a hack to make a game play similar to another game from over 10 years ago?

.. kay, guess I'm the only one. Gimme Smash 64, ACTUAL Melee, Brawl or Smash 4 over Project M any day of the week. Only good thing that came out of that hack, IMO, were the alternate outfits.

That aside, it's good to see Nintendo doing this kind of stuff more! Wonder if Nintendo of Europe will do something similar sometime.

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

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 It really is one of the best games ever if you ask me, though. Maybe I'm just biased because it's the first game I ever owned (as part of the Super Mario All-Stars cartridge), but it certainly is a timeless classic, IMO. :) I don't understand how someone who likes Mario games a lot, doesn't like Super Mario World at all. But, everyone's free to their own opinion.

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

Still one of the best games EVER. And it's the game that introduced the best and most adorable character of all time (at least when it was originally released on the SNES). Anybody who has not picked any version of this game up yet, DO IT NOW!

Yosher commented on Smash Bros. 2v2 For Glory Exploit Makes Pac-Ma...:

I think the best fix for this is to limit the amount of trampolines Pac-Man can spawn until he lands back on the ground. I think 3 to 5 trampolines is a fair limit. It would still be a bit of a problem in Sudden Death but at least the other players would be able to punish these kinds of people.

Yosher commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

Mario Kart 8 is a wonderful and charming game and I've had TONS of fun with it, but in all honesty I'm quite surprised that it's winning as GOTY when it doesn't even have a proper Battle Mode. Mario Kart is more about racing, sure, but the Battle Mode has always been a fairly big part of the series as well, and with how screwed up it is in MK8 I am surprised with all this praise. Not to say that the game doesn't deserve it, though. For what the game offers, it certainly is excellent. :)
