dbobo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Offers the Best of Bot...:

@Chubblings While I agree with your logic, I feel like Nintendo is just dragging it's feet on moving forward with the franchises base games. I'm really tired of the same old format of catch/train/gym and I just need more out of the series than simply adding little mini games and gadgets (and rehashes of previous games) to try and keep the attention of the player. I like they they have finally broken themselves of the top-down view but it took them almost 20 years to do so. I understand that the game is meant to cater to younger games as an introductory to the typical RPG format but I think they are discounting the intelligence of the average child in todays society.

I'm sure I am on the lower end of the spectrum but I feel like the Pokemon formula is getting stale. Mind you, I have play every generation in the series sans Black/White 2 so my opinion isn't fair weather. I just feel like games like Ni no Kuni have taken the genre to another level and I don't see why Nintendo can't do the same.
Not to mention, Nintendo should have capitalized on this whole Virtual Action Figure market with Pokemon well before Amiibo was announced. Just my 2 cents.

dbobo commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

After the Skylanders and Disney Infinity craze having been around for a while now, I feel like we're coming close to the end of it. As a parent who has invested quite the bit of money in them, the stuff is starting to take up a lot of real estate in my home and game stores not offering credit for trade-ins on them really sucks. With that said, I'm very on the fence that Amiibo is going to take off and sustain momentum without some serious incentive on Nintendo's part. One thing that could drive these sales would be Nintendo offering Amiibo figure specific in-game DLC for the games they are compatible with (like an unlockable stage or outfit/kart). So as soon as you connect your Amiibo for the first time, it unlocks said item.

The REAL story here is Nintendo bringing back the 18-card game case in a ZELDA & Animal Crossing theme (400 Coins)! You best believe I'm all over that!
The game selection is pretty lackluster sans F-Zero. I'm hoping Earthbound makes to Club Nintendo one day.
