outburst commented on Parent Trap: Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Makes Chess ...:

When they asked for new IP, it doesn't mean they have to buy a new IP though. Personally I find the the settings and the characters uninteresting. I'm not saying it's a bad game, I liked the demo and will buy it down the line but the setting and the characters especially the enemies are boring.

While I think Codename STEAM is a good game, the story and the characters/setting are uninteresting. The enemies are boring. That said I will get this eventually. It's just that I'm on Wii U and amiibo mode right now on my spendings and still have 3DS games waiting to be played on my N3DS.

It should have been a Wii U title IMO. Better graphics, gyro controls on the gamepad and all. I would have gotten it day one. Plus this was delayed in Europe and Japan so the hype already died down...

I've been keeping an eye on Amazon UK. Amiibos are still 10£-13£ directly from Amazon. If you guys keep buyin them for 15£ from other retailers then they'll just increase it again like ShopTo charging 19.85£ now.

I got the squid bundle for 39.99€ from Amazon Spain. Plus 5€ shipping to Italy so that's 45€. Still better than 51€ from my local GameStop. If you're buying from Amazon Europe, I recommend buying from Amazon Spain and France since they cost 5-10€ less than SRP. Wave 1 amiibos went for as low as 9.90€ from Spain. I got wave 2 from France for as low as 10.85€ each (69.60€ for all 6 including shipping). I got the N3DS for 157€ too.

Their normal price was 10£(Amazon UK). Then it became 11.99£. Then 12.99£. Then 14.99£. Now ShopTo is 19.90£ something. Actually Amazon UK listed the Splatoon amiibos for 12.99£ for a week then it went up 14.99£. If the British consumers don't speak/stand up then 15-20£ will be the norm.



outburst commented on Nintendo Unable To Promise When It Can Remedy ...:

66% shipped in North America and there are still shortages. And some or half of those shipped in Japan and Europe are being exported to NA as well. There's something wrong. Are they sabotaging Nintendo? Or just the problem with scalpers?

Anyway, I can't believe ShopTo UK is charging 20£ for amiibos while they are only 13$ in the US.
