hypercoyote commented on ​The Prices of the Remaining Physical Goods ...:

It took me all of 7 minutes to call and place a complaint. I'm one to at least try something to make a difference. You never know, Nintendo did the Ambassador program when they dropped the price on the 3DS within 5 months of release, so I could see them doing maybe a digital reward as compensation here.



hypercoyote commented on ​The Prices of the Remaining Physical Goods ...:

Just got off the phone w/ Nintendo. They said they're not doing anything about it right now, but definitely call in and POLITELY lodge a complaint about it. They're reps are usually super nice, so please do not be a jerk to them. Just let them know how much you spent on these discounted physical rewards and how much you would've saved if you'd waited to buy them at the discount. There's no guarantee anything will happen, but I'd imagine if they got enough complaints, they'll do some kind of compensation, if only some free digital games.

TLDR: Call Nintendo, POLITELY lodge a complain and something might happen.

Nintendo: 1-800-255-3700, options 5,1



hypercoyote commented on You Can Own Sid Meier's SNES Development Syste...:

I think the term holy grail is throw around way too easily. I've seen some items described as holy grail (Bandai's World Track or whatever it was called for NES) that went for a ridiculous amount, but then there's this for less than $10k. There should only be one holy grail. I'm starting a petition.

From what I've seen, Jakks Pacific has pretty low quality standards, at least for the World of Nintendo figure line. I saw some of the World of Nintendo figures with botched paint jobs and shoddy looking models. So I wouldn't be surprised if these are also pretty shoddy quality.



hypercoyote commented on Unity Support Is Coming To The New Nintendo 3DS:

Wow, this is awesome news. Definitely adds value to the New 3DS system!
I'm not understanding why people are complaining about this. The DSi came out and only it had the capability to play DSiWare, which completely shut out the previous DS generation. This isn't even nearly as bad as that was, at least on the old 3DS you still have the eShop. I would prefer for Nintendo to upgrade the capabilities of the system so people at least have the OPTION of having more content than not do it so people don't feel left out.



hypercoyote commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

lol, eBay is just looking out for their own interests. It is very much in the interests of eBay to draw in auctions like these. They make 10% off the auction plus another 3% minimum from Paypal (albeit, some of that may go to card processing fees). I'm surprised by the post on the one hand since it is such a touchy subject, but on the other hand, I'm really not. My favorite was when eBay was acting so chivalrous when the US was looking at passing Internet tax laws and eBay was opposing them vehemently "in the interest of its users" when the fact of the matter is the law would've been a big blow to eBay itself.

Not sure if you can tell, but I have sort of a love/hate relationship with eBay lol.



hypercoyote commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

I agree with this, the set date/time for preorders is a great idea. The only problem with that (which online retailers may or may not be aware of) is that when you do that, your site gets hammered at that one time. I mean, even the random release times caused some sites to struggle to bear the load. But I agree that's about the only option. Some other options would've been to provide a "preorder ticket" via Club Nintendo to allow purchases direct from Nintendo's store. I don't agree the limit should be 1 though, I think 2 is probably a more fair limit as many people (myself included) like to buy one to open and one to keep sealed. I don't think it's the people buying 2 that caused the issue, it's the people buying 20 or more.

1) When will you guys be opening up ""? I think enough stories are posted about scalping to warrant its own site.
2) This isn't news anymore, people have been scalping for years and there have been reported stories about this in particular. Given that almost every story I've seen posted was by you, I'm assuming this is a personal vendetta.
3) By posting this, you are only making the problem worse. Now those would-be scalpers who were unaware of the value of the system now know to sell theirs.



hypercoyote commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

This video is's not credible, I don't know why it was posted here other than to spark a debate. And no, the fact that it uses Super Mario Bros 2 to explain it doesn't justify it.

Also, @Zach777, I agree. If we could work our way to God, why would we need Jesus?
