Rafie commented on Interview: Saber Rider Team On Making A Decade...:

@Spoony_Tech Yeah Tech I was (still am) a cartoon enthusiast. There's barely a cartoon from any era...especially the 80's that I don't know about. I never heard of this either. However, this project sound ambitious and quite fun. I think it will be good. The game that is.

Rafie commented on 3DS Saber Rider Game Back In Development, Kick...:

This sounds really cool. I'm very interested in anything 80's. What can I say? I was born in '82 and loved G Force, Voltron, Transformers, etc. This sounds like it's cut from the same cloth as them. Of course I've never seen this cartoon due to it being in Japan. Oh and they are in talks with Peter Cullen?! Wow.
I'm also very surprised at the Dreamcast version being made. I still have my Dreamcast in mint condition. I love the idea. I will certainly buy amiibos for this if it happens. I'll back this. It would be the very first kickstarter I have ever backed. I just like the sound of this project.

Rafie commented on European Club Nintendo Has a Lovely Last Hurra...:

Why didn't we get this in NA? I swear man Nintendo loves EU more than NA. Or maybe NoA isn't doing enough to get us these nice perks NoE has been getting. I've been on Reggie's case for a while now and I don't want to blame everything on him. However, he has the biggest voice here (US) and nothing is coming our way. Not stuff like this.

@JaxonH I believe you told me about this before. I downloaded previously and forgot why I had it there in the first place. I didn't know how to navigate or properly use it. I'm not very savvy with phones and technology. Sad. I will redownload it and send an invite your way. You're too cool man!

@JaxonH Yessir I don't want to miss another Amiibo again. I literally go crazy when I don't get it. I know...a 33 year old man going bananas over a figurine. I can't help it though. Nintendo did this to me! I appreciate the invite. Yes we have been cool on here for a few years now.

@NintendoFan64 Dr. Mario is exclusive to Target?! WTF!! Hahaha Sorry I'm not yelling at you. I'm just surprised and yet not that surprised at the same time. I was just on Target yesterday and this morning. I see that the Amiibos for the September 11 release is there, but you can't preorder.

@JaxonH Don't have a Twitter account. Here in South Florida, the guys and gals were all over Dark Pit. When I went into Best Buy (2 of them here actually) both stores told me that when they opened, they sold out in a matter of 20 minutes. Some folks were waiting since 6 am for it and still didn't get it. I wish I knew when it was going live, I would have been ready. I never said that Best Buy didn't sell Dark Pit online, I said they don't preorder online. They told me themselves that it was first come, first serve basis.

@JaxonH Then that was the quickest sell out online for an amiibo. I waited for hours Best Buy to update it for release....nothing! So I guess when I gave up is when it was released. I waited at midnight to see if it would release...nothing. For an hour straight I was hitting that F5 button. Then I figured since Best Buy would be opening their stores at 10am, I would be able to snatch one online (couldn't physically be there due to work)....no avail. That's just another thing that sucks about being store exclusive.

Rafie commented on Falco, Mewtwo, Mii Fighters & More amiibo Rele...:

@Spoony_Tech See that's the thing. Every retailer has their own way of distributing the product. Best Buy doesn't do online preorders or anything. It's first come, first serve. There isn't anything wrong with that, but when there's 75 people waiting in line and there's only 50 amiibos to boot...that's a problem. I'd rather have other options so that I could get a chance to get them. Nintendo is doing very good with Amiibos in Australia. My cousin lives there and he took a picture of a store that had damn near all of the rare amiibos (Lil Mac, Greninja, MetaKnight, Zero Suit Samus, Rosalina, and a ton more). I wish Nintendo would do North America like that. So yes I can see how it's an advantage to have store exclusive amiibos, but I also see a big disadvantage as well.

I can't stop with my amiibo collecting! I couldn't get Dark Pit because of that stupid retail exclusive bullcrap. However, I was able to get the North American 3 pack (R.O.B., Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch) from Gamestop because of the "stupid retail exclusive bullcrap". ;p

Rafie commented on GameStop Confirms amiibo 3-Pack Pre-Order Even...:

@arrmixer LOL I'm sorry man. I'm just glad that I know someone who would save amiibos for me. They've done it many times for me. As soon as King Deedede, Wii Fit Trainer, and Ness came in...they held them for me until I picked them up. Cool folks there

@aaronsullivan That's where I think NoA needs to step it up on what they're releasing, in terms of packs, supply, etc. I also believe they should stop with the exclusive retail releases. Every business has a way of how they distribute their products. I would love the option to be able to purchase elsewhere. Sometimes it takes the fun out of collecting them. I couldn't pick up Dark Pit because Best Buy did it on a first come, first serve basis with no internet purchases. So only the first 20 folks in the 54 person line was able to get it.

@ASonic3582 Believe it or not, the employees there collect them. Of course they would get what they want first and then contact those who are interested, then put the remaining ones up for purchase. I skipped out on things like Skylander and even Disney Infinity. I thought for sure no one would be that interested in amiibos. Boy was I wrong!!!

Rafie commented on GameStop Confirms amiibo 3-Pack Pre-Order Even...:

@Spoony_Tech Well Tech that's why you build a good rapport with Gamestop employees. I have at 4 stores here in South Florida. The manager has already called me and told me that he will save a reserve spot for me because he knows I love amiibos.

Still, I thought it was a bad idea to make this a 3 pack instead of individuals. Some people only wanted a specific character and didn't care about the others. The Mii brawler amiibos was the only other 3 pack that I thought was coming. Even that one isn't confirmed to be a 3 pack though.

Rafie commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

@emayer Gotta agree here. It's sad to see some of the comments on here talking about how MS doesn't deserve these games. Of course they do. Just like Nintendo deserves the games they get. It's not MS's fault Nintendo didn't buy the studio. MS simply just stepped up and acquired the games.

Rafie commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@JaxonH My sentiments on how I feel about gaming today. Almost my exact feelings. Except I play everything extensively...well except the 3DS. Only because I no longer have one. I do plan on getting the new 3DS. I LOVE games. That includes every single one of my consoles. I even revisit my Dreamcast from time to time! Good stuff ol friend!

Rafie commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@JaxonH I always enjoy your responses. You're like one of the very few objective ones here. You see the beauty in the flaws and you don't downplay others. Surely you're an example to how some should conduct themselves with this "controversial" matter.

Anyway, agree and disagree with the OP. Sure it's f'ed up that 3rd party has turned it's back on Wii U. I mean REALLY jacked up. There are fans of the system that would enjoy those said games and play them in an environment where they don't have to deal with childish gamers who curses them instead of having fun. I get it! However, Nintendo can share some of that blame for not being aggressive enough and thinking they should just be entitled.

This subject keeps coming up from time to time and the results will always be the same. Unfortunately, Nintendo isn't in the position to just thinking they should automatically get these games. Time to negotiate.

Rafie commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

To be real, I agree with is statement about VR. I'm certainly not sold on it and believe that ship has sailed long ago. HOWEVER, dude (Reggie) just looks salty that Nintendo had a terrible conference and looks to be ragging on the competition.

Rafie commented on Star Fox Zero Marks An Explosive Return To For...:

The graphics isn't the concern here, guys/gals. The game still looks good. I just want the gameplay to be smooth and innovative. It looks to be headed in that direction. So far, it looks like Nintendo has the best 1st party line up for the fall 2015. Very good indeed.

Rafie commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Is Coming To The Wii...:

I have to say this. I know I'll get flamed, but I'm still gonna say it. I was very underwhelmed by Nintendo's conference. They could have had a stronger showing then this. I'm actually quite saddened. This is nothing like their E3 of last year. Profound sadness.....

Rafie commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

Some of you are Nintendo apologists. Call them out when they are in the wrong. I do believe Nintendo purposely hold supply back for higher demand. It's not cool. They can easily make more amiibos if you see that the market is high for them. Also Nintendo needs to not make stores hold exclusive figures. Make it readily available to all.

The guy (Disney Infinity) had a good point. I'm upset with Nintendo with the handling of amiibos. They got to get it together here!

Rafie commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

Now I can't justify why this isn't coming to Wii U. Also to be honest, a lot of the PS4/Xbox backers don't care for the statue at all. Most of them claim that it looks too generic like a McDonald's toy. Their words, not mine. I'm not interested in it myself, but it's pretty damn stupid not to give the Wii U fans their chance at it.

Look on the bright side though, Mega Man Amiibo blows that statue out the water.

Rafie commented on ​Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gets a Wi...:

Wow some of you are gonna be a while wiping that egg off of your face!
Anyway, I think this is the same studio that developed that Batman game for the Vita/3DS. If so, then this is good. I'm getting the PS4 version, but I'm happy for the Wii U owners as well.

Rafie commented on Don't Hold Your Breath On Those Marth amiibo R...:

@JaxonH I keep forgetting the U.S. isn't the "entire world". Hehehe I always forget that Nintendo has to supply other countries with amiibos. Still, Nintendo should do a survey of sorts. Just to see what amiibos are needed most. I'm sure the Fire Emblem and Xenoblade series would get the most votes. Also the Kid Icarus series(although Palutena isn't out yet).
