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

Wait, so they cancelled all the pre-orders and then re-opened for new pre-orders? If they weren't getting enough stock, they should have just cancelled the latest orders they didn't have enough stock for. TRU has been the only place I've seen giving big discounts on the amiibo so maybe they now regret it and wanted to get rid of those discounted orders so they could make more money by charging more now?

iphys commented on Review: Heptrix (Wii U eShop):

Lol, I was going to buy this, but fortunately my copy of Tetris Ultimate showed up in the mail the day this came out, so now I won't have to.

They probably had to discontinue some ahead of the second wave hitting so retailers would have shelf space, so I'm not really surprised. More will probably be discontinued before the third wave hits.

iphys commented on Actor Is Suing Nintendo After Suffering Heart ...:

Wearing those suits is supposed to be brutal — can't imagine doing it in sweltering LA heat with no ice pack, so yeah, I'd be suing too. You should always refuse to do work if you think it's unsafe though.

iphys commented on Blinking Light Win Means You'll Never Have To ...:

Would have backed it if it wasn't $18 + $30 shipping to Canada. Get real. I'll never need to replace the connector often enough to justify paying that much more to get one of these, and I currently have a new connector anyway.

iphys commented on Guide: The Best Cyber Monday Nintendo Deals in...:

I love how The Best Cyber Monday Deals begins with the Super Mario 3D World Wii U bundle for regular price. Not that it's a bad deal for what you get, but you can get that deal any day of the week. I had visions of Nintendo moving a couple million Wii U systems in the month leading up to x-mas, but they really dropped the ball for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. If people didn't buy the Wii U to play Super Mario 3D World last year, they're probably not going to this year. They needed a price drop to compete with XOne, or If they'd at least had a Smash bundle for $300, that would have sold people.

iphys commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

I knew the Wii U would get dominated by XOne: a lot of places were just selling the Wii U at the standard price with no discount, which isn't going to interest the people looking for deals on Black Friday.

iphys commented on Two Tetris Downloads to be Removed from the 3D...:

The Tetris Company probably only grants permission for certain lengths of time. We already saw Tetris Party Live DSiWare get removed a while back. Even Tetris DS Nintendo was only able to print so many copies of.

iphys commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (3DS):

Woah, 10-player download play for the win — like Tetris DS. I thought they only claimed this was going to be 1-4 player originally.

iphys commented on Nintendo Might Not Be Making More GameCube Con...:

Luckily I pre-ordered the bundle, but if you didn't do so it was hard to pre-order the adapter: amazon.ca had it for $60 for the longest time so no one was paying that, and futureshop and bestbuy.ca didn't even put it up on their web site till it was released, so Nintendo could have very easily been misled into thinking it wasn't going to be popular judging by the low number of pre-orders for it.

iphys commented on Meta Knight amiibo to be Best Buy Exclusive in US:

It would probably be easier on the stores to stock these things if each chain only had to carry a smaller subset of the amiibo, especially if Nintendo is going to release hundreds of these things. If they limited each amiibo to one chain, at least you could figure out where to get that amiibo, rather than hunting around at maybe half a dozen places to try to find it in stock somewhere.

iphys commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Honestly, it's done better than I expected. I was physically ill with disappointment the day they announced it, but it hasn't been the complete failure I thought it would be. It's still in need of a Tetris game before I will consider it a legitimate console though.

iphys commented on Pikmin Short Movies Available to Buy Now on Wi...:

@Jahir I'm talking about: "the collection has to be bought separately for Wii U or 3DS, costing $4.99 each." Does that mean the collection of shorts has to be bought separately for $4.99 per short, or the HD and 3D collections need to be bought separately for $4.99 per collection?

iphys commented on Shovel Knight is Getting a Cross-Buy Discount ...:

I don't know why a company would expect you to pay 2/3 the price for a game you already own. The second copy should be a free bonus or be like 90% off, since it's not like you're getting much of anything extra.

iphys commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Considering they were selling those Nintendo Land refurbs for $200 before and people were happily buying them up, I think they can and should sell the bundles for $250, and they really desperately need to sell systems this holiday or they're going to get left in the dust.

iphys commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

That was cute, but I still don't really have a practical sense of how I would use these. If I were going to buy an amiibo, should I be looking to buy one I would want to fight against rather than the character I main? That makes me really confused because I'd want to buy my main to have on display but then it would look stupid to be fighting alongside the exact same character.

It looks way better than the Link Between Worlds one I bought not realizing it would show something completely different on the 1st page from what was pictured in the theme shop. The folders look better, and I swear the music even sounds richer too, sigh.
