hypercoyote commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

This is the kind of stuff that fans are so blind to. That one line was excellent: "people don’t like finding out that their fanbase is actually too small to justify the costs of the thing they want". That's the truth. Because it's important to you, it feels huge to you. And you find other people who feel the same way and you feel like a majority. But with some exceptions, that's usually not the case. And with the text, it's not quite as simple as translating a book word for word. A game is interactive, so there's context to be considered, multiple branching choices, then it all has to be consistent. That's a monumental task. So even with a game like Xenoblade that has impressive sales for a JRPG, it likely did not make as much money as people think.



hypercoyote commented on Lucas DLC Confirmed for 14th June Release on S...:

@MikeW That is true. I was caught up just thinking about the racers because that was the original comment. I agree that if you take the tracks and carts/parts into account, it doesn't make sense. Apart from all that, I do agree that it seems overpriced to just get one fighter. Now, if they threw in some levels with him, that'd be different.



hypercoyote commented on Rumour: GameStop No Longer Taking amiibo Preor...:

I think anyone who frequents the Amiibo Reddit knows how often info like this flows in, then turns out to be wrong. I would take this with a super-grain of salt and I'm really surprised that this of all things was chosen to be reported on here.



hypercoyote commented on Capcom Is Bringing The Nintendo Exclusive Resi...:

I try not to be bitter at Capcom because in the end, I realize they're just trying to make money. But they have burned almost every bridge with me when they decided to bury Megaman. I will say they got a small glimmer of redemption by releasing Tron Bonne finally on PS network.



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.



hypercoyote commented on World of Nintendo 8-Bit Plushes Available from...:

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.
