What, no fair. It as disgrace that they're locking something as important as this easter egg behind an amiibo paywall.

Lol, I'm only joking . This is a cool little thing to have in the game. I've not got his card yet, but I might pick up a few more packs at some point. I'm almost tempted to get this game just so I'll have a use for those cards.

TPC were far too harsh this time, especially since he didn't make much in the way of profits. A cease and desist was probably all that was needed. At the very least, they should have approved the payment plan. It's not like TPC will notice if it takes a year for them to receive an extra $4000.

Great that there'll still probably be multiple characters to come. I say this every time, but Rayman is the one I'm wanting most, but there's plenty other characters I'll be happy with such as Shantae, Professor Layton and Shovel Knight.

Nice, I'm glad to see them offering compensation, though I'll still be less likely to preorder stuff from GAME after this.

If anyone was left out of pocket from this and incurred bank charges, then contact GAME support and they should compensate for that.



crimsontadpoles commented on Star Fox Zero Delayed To Achieve a "Platinum F...:

It's disappointing that I'll have to wait longer for this game, and it could be a costly decision since it'll miss the holiday season. However, I'm really glad they did this. It's much better to release a polished game where the developers are fully satisfied with it than to release a mediocre or bug-filled game.

As for the controls, I'm still undecided about them. It looks awkward, but it could be great once I'm used to them. Initially, I thought the Splatoon controls were bad, but I started to love them after a couple of hours of playing it. And unlike what others are saying, I doubt the controls were the main reason for this delay.



crimsontadpoles commented on NOA Announces Coming Restock of Old amiibo:

It's unlikely, but Gold Mario is the restock I want to see most. Since Nintendo is still being a pain and not selling this in Europe, I was hoping they would at least flood the American market with them to drive down their ebay price.



crimsontadpoles commented on Talking Point: Why Does Investor Confidence in...:

There hasn't been much in the way of new games or announcements recently, so it makes sense that a lack of buzz would cause stock prices to dip a bit. However, it should bounce up again once there's more announcements or games along the way.



crimsontadpoles commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

Despite the negativity, I'm still excited for this game. Hopefully there'll be plenty of creative puzzles in the game that couldn't function with a single character. I don't know anyone nearby with a 3DS, so I'll likely find people in the forums to play with.



crimsontadpoles commented on Analysts Wonder If Super Mario Can Save Ninten...:

There's not going to be one single game that will save Nintendo. Instead, they need a variety of top games in order to do well. The Wii U has plenty of awesome games now, but it suffered because of the lack of games when the Wii U was first released. If there's multiple great games released early on in the NX life cycle, then Nintendo should be able do well again.



crimsontadpoles commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

So there won't be any more consoles apparantly, but he doesn't say what device everyone will be playing on instead. It just seems silly to me. The console market might not grow, but it'll still be there. There's always going to be a market for people that want to play great games that cannot be run on a smartphone, but don't want to invest in an awesome computer.



crimsontadpoles commented on Fresh Nintendo Patent Shows Handheld Device Wi...:

I'm not sure how this could be used in a non-gimmicky way, but Nintendo could easily suprise me. Big companies often create patents that they don't plan on using soon, so there's not much information we can get from them until we see the NX.



crimsontadpoles commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

The Wii U had had a lot of final nails in its coffin, but it's still going. Nintendo has been doomed since 1889, but it's still doing fine. So the Wii U will be fine for a while yet.

Losing a Christmas release will obviously be bad for Nintendo, but it's always worthwhile to get a game right instead of it being bad. There's still great titles coming the Wii U, including Star Fox, Xenoblade and Zelda, so the final nail won't come until after these are released. This article is just click bait.



crimsontadpoles commented on Haptic Feedback Patent Could Hint At Full Touc...:

I'd be surprised if they dropped buttons. Plenty of challenging games that require precise controls would be almost impossible to play on touch screens, even with haptic feedback. Lots of patents go unused, so it's not worth worrying about it.



crimsontadpoles commented on New Nintendo Controller Patent Features Rotati...:

Interesting idea. I'm not sure it would be that useful for most games, but there's bound to be some that could really benefit from this. It's something I would need to try out first before completely deciding whether it's any good in practice.



crimsontadpoles commented on Nintendo Direct Broadcasts Will Continue Despi...:

I hope that if Kimishima decides to do some presenting in it, that he does feature for too long initially and instead gives other senior Nintendo staff or developers have a larger role. Overwise, there'll be plenty of comparisons him to Iwata, and lots of hate on the internet just because he isn't Iwata.



crimsontadpoles commented on Nintendo Direct Broadcasts Will Continue Despi...:

It's fantastic that they're returning. Now the question is if the new CEO will eventually take a similar role to Iwata, or if they'll change the formula of it. I've not seen any videos of Kimishima yet, so don't know if he would be good at it.
