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

I had 7 amiibos cancelled by TRU this morning. The worst part? I had all of them (except Lucario obviously) pre-ordered at Amazon, but cancelled it because of the BOGO 40% off deal. And from what I hear, they basically cancelled all the orders so they didn't have to honor it.

Spent the rest of today frantically trying to track down the 7 I need. Had to import Falcon and Pit, and did the same with Rosalina and Lucario. I'm not dealing with these stupid retailer exclusives anymore, and I'm not giving them my money if they are going to be shady.

ZBomber commented on HORI's GameCube-Inspired Pikachu Controller Ar...:

Just pre-ordered. Got the Mario and Luigi one when Smash came out. I don't need them for Smash WiiU, but I can use it with Brawl at least since the gamecube controller adapter doesn't work with that game (yet).

ZBomber commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:

@AlmightyDerek Why do they annoy you? They take a fun game and put a competitive spin on it. Never understood why people hate on the professional players, the game has ALWAYS been very accessible to everyone even when there was a deeper meta game like in Melee. They aren't affecting you or your enjoyment of the game.

I like the new edge mechanics at any rate, I think it is much more entertaining/rewarding when someone goes off the ledge to try and spike someone. Never was a fan of ledge hogging in the older games, but I do love watching the pros play.

ZBomber commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@rolzup Nope, it was always 2015. It's coming out at the same time as the other retail exclusives (Lucario, Meta Knight, etc) in the third wave. The second wave (Luigi, Pit, Zelda, Little Mac, Falcon), which just came out yesterday, was announced and available for preorder a long time ago. Target only just officially announced that they will be the retailer to carry Rosalina yesterday, so that is probably why people are going to the store and asking for it. It is more of an issue on Target's part than Nintendo's, since it doesn't actually have a release date on their website (along with the other 2015 wave 3 figures). Pre-orders haven't gone up for this yet, so you nor anyone else has missed out on it.

ZBomber commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@JaxonH That's what I figured. Rosalina is the only one I need too. I wasn't planning on buying all these when they were first announced, and I'm still not sold on the value of their in-game usage, but so far I've pre-ordered every single one and they make really cool collectibles.

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

I've ordered every single one released/announced so far, but I think it is pretty dumb to discontinue them so soon if this is true. Some people won't have enough money to get them now, and people are going to be looking to get amiibos after the holidays when they DO have the funds.

They should have at least waited until the third wave came out early next year before discontinuing them imo.

ZBomber commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

This is ridiculous. I ordered mine from Gamestop (I'm in the US) a month before it came out. Went to the midnight release and was told they didn't have any of the adapters. Luckily, the cashier let me exchange my order for the last game/adapter bundle they had, so I do have one, but Nintendo should know better. If you can't even fulfill preorders for an item, why even bother taking preorders to begin with? The adapter was met with a lot of fanfare when it was announced, why they would think only a couple people would buy it worldwide is beyond me.

ZBomber commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

I have to be honest that I regret blindly buying the season pass before even playing the game. I had a lot of fun with it for the first 20 hours or so, playing through the legendary mode and then some of the adventure maps. But at this point, I am so tired of the game. It is so repetitive and some parts just way too difficult unless you grind for a long time to get a high enough level character (and that takes forever, especially since some modes require a certain character). While I appreciate the company putting so much content into the base game and the DLC, I'm never even going to come close to completing everything in the base game. I have no reason to even try and play through the DLC... especially now that Smash U is out.

ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Yeah, the game that will go on sale on the eshop next month isn't related to the Pokemon TCG programs released on PC and Apple products.(The article is kind of confusing, they really should add GBC in there). The GBC game uses the first 3 sets of Pokemon cards (Base Set, Jungle, and Fossil; basically the first 151 pokemon) where the new one uses the modern day TCG, which has over 700 Pokemon and I'm guessing different rules/cards/strategies. I haven't played FF8 yet so I'm not sure how similar it is to that, but I would definitely recommend checking out videos of it on Youtube before buying it. Honestly it is a bit dated at this point, but I imagine if you or your kids are big Pokemon fans, especially of the original generation, they might get some enjoyment out of it. The big draw of the GBC game is the story mode, where you build your own deck(s) and use it to beat gym leaders. But again, the game originally came out in 1998 in Japan so it is pretty limited in terms of what content is in it. The free TCG doesn't have a story mode as far as I know, but the content is a lot more extensive and (I think) you can battle friends, which I don't believe you'll be able to do with the GBC version.
Here is a random video of the game just to get an idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktwdl_UmqbY

ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Pokemon Trading Card game on the GBC was a lot different from the TCG app they're offering now. You controlled a character that went around to each "gym" challenging people, collecting cards and decks and badges. The GBC version was like an actual video game based around the trading card game, while the one Nintendo offers now is basically a simulator of the actual trading card game. People that didn't play the game back in the day should probably pass, as (I imagine) the TCG has changed much since 1998. However, for people like myself who grew up with the original series and this game, its a nice throwback. I'm not interested in learning the new TCG but I still have great memories of the original version, so I will definitely pick it up when it comes on the eShop.

That said, I agree the $5.99 price point is way too expensive.

This has been available for pre-order since MAY. What is up with this site today and the outdated news? The gamecube controllers, the mega evolutions and now this? I love this site and check multiple times per day, but you guys gotta step up your game.

ZBomber commented on Ocarina of Time gets a 2D Makeover:

Anyone remember when a team tried to do something similar to this about 10 years ago? They released a demo build, it was cool but never materialized into anything. Teams that do things like this need to remain SILENT until they actually finish it. Announcing it now will just result in Nintendo shutting it down and it never taking off.

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

This is incredibly disappointing. I had been checking back every day hoping for a soundtrack or some kind of cool exclusive .I'm not big on digital games in the first place as I prefer to buy physical ones. I think the least they could do is allow a platinum member to chose one from the platinum section and one from the gold... this is the first time I got Platinum and I really worked toward it after seeing all the great rewards in the past, and I'm already at gold status for the year. Just incredibly disappointed...

I used to rent this game with my friend. Yeah, its not the greatest game, but it does hold some nostalgia value for me. This was the only 2D Fighter I played in that era too... never really got into them.

ZBomber commented on Review: Strong Bad Episode 1 - Homestar Ruiner...:

I just finished this game today, and I thought it was awesome. The TGS comics were hillarious. Some of the dialogue was really good too. Yes, the game can get a little boring in some spots, but I also got stumped once or twice during the game. Took me about 3 hours to beat too...

ZBomber commented on Talking Point: Is the Virtual Console On The S...:

Well, I kinda gave up on VC awhile ago. I realized its cheaper to just buy the system and get the games I want. So, since then I got almost all of the NES, SNES, Genesis, and N64 games I wanted. VC is kinda pointless for me now, unless there is a rare game I would otherwise not be able to afford (Harvest Moon is one)

It took me a whole day to register 5 games. :p Whenever I tried to do the Wii Play survey it brought me to the "Whoops!" error page. It seems to be loading a little faster today.

I actually dont think this is a bad game... its quite fun actually... dont expect some wicked in-depth gameplay but its fun to play now and then to relive the old days...

ZBomber commented on Club Nintendo Comes To North America:

Wii sports does not count toward coins. The only games that work are the ones with the registration cards inside the box... for example, for games I have that don't work: Force Unleashed and Guitar Hero III because they arent made by Nintendo and don't have register cards inside.

I got sick of waiting for them to come out with games I want, so instead I bought a NES and just buy whatever games I want from my local game shop...

I never had this when NES first came out, but I picked it up recently on cartridge, and while I love retro gaming, this didnt do anything for me

Fun game with a great idea, but I could do without a few of the elements. 4/5, worth the download.
