@DiscoGentleman - Thanks for that.

My guess is it will have a limited radius of 2 meters 6 feet so it only picks up 1 person. But thanks b/c you were the only person to make me think that Ninteod will be tracking ALL of our activity in bed. ;-)

I can just imagine all the Ntinedo employess looking over the cloud data saying - oh look, rjejr is gettin' some tonight ;-)

rjejr commented on Nexis Games Launches Kickstarter For Minecraft...:

MS hasn't sued them yet? Then it can't be very good.

And I don't understand (well you all know how crazy I am) why he spends a full sentence talking about how he is a 1 man studio and he alone is responsible for every aspect of the game but then uses the pronouns "we" or "our" about 7 times instead of "I" or "my". A couple of those "we" are general, like "We the people" but several just seem misleading.

Oh, I get it now, read his Nexis page, this whole thing is a joke about a bet. That explains a lot.

rjejr commented on Iwata Cites "Same-Generation Hypothesis" For S...:

"Societal change" is probably a better explanation for SSB sales than same-generation. SSB is the 1st in the series on a handheld, handhelds are huge now, really the only consoles that matter in Japan, SSB on a portable almost had no choice but to be huge.

If they're correct and most people buying Pokemon are 18-25 or whatever then more power to them, but from my vantage point ASOR will sell well to kids who are too young to have played the originals. Probably kids who watch the Saturday morning cartoon - yes Saturday morning cartoons still exist - and play w/ the cards. Pokemon is a phenomena way beyond the videogames. I don't like the games, cards or tv show but the movies are really good family entertainment which is hard to find.

If he's correct though, how about a Pokemon game on the Wii U? ;-) (I'm still expecting Pokepark 3 w/ amiibo support at some point in the future.)

rjejr commented on Nintendo Boasts New 3DS is its Best-Selling Re...:

If they can't keep up with demand in Japan that would explain the delayed western launch better than software. Though having it release in March w/ MHU makes sense.

As for new software I'd bet having NFC built in means more titles will make use of the amiibo, that tiny little white portal probably want inspiring widespread software development.

And as for people upset about new games for the new model, March will be 4 full years, that's pretty much long enough for an entire new hardware generation. Its 4 generations if you drink Apple flavored kool-aid. ;-)

My sympathies do go out to anybody who gets a 3DS this Christmas who only finds out afterward that a new model is coming - probably early next year. Tightrope for Nintendo - announce early, lose the all important holiday sales of he current model, announce late and PO people who bought 1 this holiday. It's a lose-lose scenario for public relations, win-win for $.

Great that they're getting this and smart move doing it first with SSBU to give it even more attention. They might actually swing some more digital sales with this.

After my external HDD died Im not downloading anything I dont really have to or get for free, but I realize Im an old fuddy-duddy and this is a feature the youg'uns and hipsters want, so its a well timed holiday win for Nintendo.

rjejr commented on Capcom Offering Spooky Savings In North Americ...:

@Darknyht - "likely due to" isn't exactly a definitive reason why, it's really not much more than a guess or a hunch.

And if my not buying their game justified their logic, what message does it send if I buy their old game after they tell me their new game is not coming out on the system? Wouldn't they just then not port any sequels if that makes people go out and buy the first game? When Wii U doesn't get Watch Dogs 2 they'll blame it on poor sales, even though it's coming out months later and 3 days before SSBU. And Ubi is making not 1 but 2 AC games, 1 for the last gen and 1 fo rthis gen, but none for Wii U? If Wii U rebounds and Ubi makes the next AC6 for Wii U I'll be boycotting that 1 as well. What I'm not boycotting is Bayonetta 2, b/c even though the 1st game skipped the SD Wii Platinum is making B1 available basically for free for Wii U. That's how you get support, you bring old games over w/ the new ones, not drop support for the sequels. Or come out 4 months later, or without DLC. I do think some of it must be Nintendo's doing, the lack of DLC and season pas support is just too wide spread, but some of it makes me not want to do business w/ certain companies. And I bought Child of Light from Ubi Day 1 b/c it came out w/ all the other platforms so Im not boycoting Ubi, just WD and AC.

rjejr commented on Runbow Developers Picked Wii U for its Massive...:

Dont really like endless running, but multiplyer makes it an entirely different experience, reminds me of the new Rayman games. This game and a keg and you could have something.

They cant be serious about 4 Wiimotes and nunchucks though, not a fan of that. Nintendo needs to open up access to the Gamecube adapter. 8 player in SSBU means they'll sell a bunch, but more games using it should mean more sales of the adapter. And at $20 each they must be making a profit on those.

rjejr commented on Capcom Offering Spooky Savings In North Americ...:

@Darknyht - Well that's almost certainly true for the versions on consoles that have a much larger install base. But it makes me, and probably other people, not want to buy the last game on sale if our console of choice isn't getting the new game, regardless of the reason. Which is probably legit.

@WYLD-WOO - "Do you have any ideas?"

I have ideas, but Nintendo and I don't see eye to eye very often.

Let's see -
They aren't playable in SSB so maybe you can use them as your character, but several of them are already in MK8. They could unlock tracks or cars/bikes but we are already paying for that in the 2 DLC packs. No stage builder so they can't give us objects like in Disney Infinity Toy Box. We could use them to hold our car/bike configuration to bring it to a friends house but it's easy enough to configure a car on the fly and our drivers don't level up.

OK, I don't have any good ideas after all.

Edit - Obvious usage - racing against them in multiplayer, though I don't see how thats much different than just doing Grand Prix though I suppose if you are really good buddies with your amiibo.

As for the date - US is getting SSBU in Nov, Captain Toad in Dec, EU is getting them both a month later. So who knows? DLC should be worldwide release date though.

rjejr commented on Tournament Players Pass Judgement On 8-Player ...:

Seems a bit excessive for single player - can even the worlds best fend off 7 other people ganging up on them? - but the team aspect is certainly interesting. Though I suppose 8 player could be interesting in the same vain as demolition derby, more entertainment than competition.

I doubt my home will see more than 4 players very often but I can still imagine 4x4 teams w/ the CPU fighters in use. So even if 8 player doesn't become a standard tourney fixture I still think it's an overall big addition for the game. And people w/ no friends but lots of money can battle alongside and against 7 amiibo at once :-)

@Mus1cLov3r - "PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One - from sometime in "early 2015"."

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-09-10-resident-evil-revelations-2-will-debut-as-four-weekly-episodic-downloads

Hard to say if ti's worth hating MS over this one or Nintendo though. The eShop is getting a lot of what the other consoles offer as far as Season Pass and DLC - Hyrule Warriors, Pikmin 3, MK8 - but it hasn't gotten any of the episodic games yet (that I can recall), so maybe it's a Nintendo thing? Also not getting the Lego Batman 3 season pass. And who knows what is or isn't in Watch Dogs?

Not sure if it's technical limitations or a Nintendo policy but so much stuff from more than 1 company not making it to Wii U makes me think it has something to do on Nintnedo's side of the equation.

rjejr commented on Video: Try Not To Overheat As You Watch Excite...:

@jariw - 13th sounds good. Maybe MK8 DLC and a SSBU demo that day. :-)

Not that SSBU needs a demo, but 8 player on an in store kiosk would be nice, even 1 player and 7 NPC, but the amiibo certainly do, so a SSBU demo for people who want to try out amiibo before picking up the full game for Christmas. And if the MK8 DLC includes amiibo support so much the better.

I'm seriously expecting an amiibo Nintendo Direct next week (so probably the week after). We still haven't' seen ANY amiibo gameplay for MK8, Captain Toad or Hyrule Warriros. Not even a screenshot. (Yoshi and MP10 can wait for an ND about early 2015 games sometime in Dec)

And my external HDD but I'll be buying the game on disc. Maybe it's time Nintendo made a 4-port USB adapter to go along w/ the Gamecube adapter while they're at it. :-)

Sorry for all the sarcasm, it's not directed at you, it's just Nintendo being Nintendo, and me being me. ;-)

It's nice that it lets you copy aad paste but how intuitive is the interface? How does it draw w/ the stylus? They probably spent more time on the commercial than making the game which is why they don't show it in action. :-(

rjejr commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

Big holiday coming up for Wii U, 7m in 2 years is dreadful, even if it has momentum and will sell better this quarter thats still a horrible number. Didnt they originally predict 9-12m its first year?

So they better start advertising and marketing in a big way. Its a great console w/ the best exclusive games list on the planet this holiday at the cheapest price. But they need to scream this from the rooftops once Halloween is over and the holiday shopping sesson begins in earnest. They have only themselves to blame if Wik U doesnt sell well this holiday.

New 3DS should be announced for the west in Feb and go on sale in March to mark the 4 year anniversary with a new name, 3DSn fits the bill, we're used to DSi. If they release or announce it sooner they'll PO everybody who bought the old model this Christmas. People shouldnt be too upset if a new console comes out 4 years after the original. And they should announce and sell the amiibo portal at the same so it looks like they arent forcing people to upgrade, theyre giving them an option not to. (The n in 3DSn stands for NFC for me, but "new"works too.)

@sinalefa - ""Coming at the end of November"

Yeah, I read that as well - I check every few days to see if the eShop has a date yet so I can finally purchase it :-)

You know, you might be on to something w/ that Thanksgiving Day release. But - and I'm really not sure about this - I don't think the eShop updates on holidays so it would probably be Wed 26 (my wife's birthday so I remember the date). But T-Day would be cool. I'm cooking for 15 people but it would certainly entertain the kids. Along w/ SSBU - I'm leaning towards getting it Day 1, broke as I am.

Who knows, I can't figure Nitnedo out. SSB U and amiibo same day as Pokemon ASOR, so maybe the DLC as well w/ amiibo support? And the new mysterious HW amiibo support? Maybe all the same day? I give up.

"It's not long now"

Well Nov is in 4 days so I suppose... Maybe it will just be auto downloaded like Hyrule Warriors was DLC did so they won't tell us the date beforehand? Think I'ld actually like that for a change.

Track reminds me of something my kids built in Mod Nation Racers on PS3. I realize the graphics in this game are pretty amazing so a full track editor was never going to happen but something simple like the SSBU stage builder would sure be nice. Even if we were just limited to adding obstacles to a track like this and moving the ground up and down. Just some use for the Gamepad and to mess around with.

Any word on how amiibo work in this game yet? Guess we'll be getting a Nintnedo Direct in the next couple of weeks.

So, is Nintendo crazy enough to have this DLC come out on Nov 20 w/ both SSBU and Pokemon on the 21st? On Thanksgiving in the US? There are only 2 other Thursdays in Nov, Nintendo should just pick one already.

rjejr commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Tough call between 8 player and big battlefield b/c they are 2 sides of the same coin for me, but went w/ 8 player b/c it's 8 player. And even if we knew the rumour about it it's still big news getting 8 player confirmed. And even if they confirmed 8 player can work wirelessly w/ a variety of controllers it still makes those adapters and Gamecube controllers look worthwhile if you can hook up 2 adapters and 8 wired controllers.

Has anybody confirmed 2 adapters at once? They do have 2 USB connectors each - 1 black and 1 gray though nobody will tell me why - and I believe there are 2 USB ports on both the front and back, though of course many people will have an external HDD hooked up to 1 (yes there are reasons more internal memory is better than relying on external).

So 8 player w/o a doubt. Though if there was a Stage Builder screenshot I would have picked that. Maybe next week :-)

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

@JaxonH @Yorumi - You both left out a major use for the Gamepad for SSBU - amiibo. I know they arent necassary to the game, but the Gamepad is the ONLY way to get them into the system. Can't sell amiibo for ANY Wii U gsme without the Gamepad.

Funny thing - I still think SSBU is the perfect game to bundle w/ Wii U without a Gamepad for serious SB players who wont use amiibo anyway but will want to use those Gamecube controllers and adapters, so Wii U, SSBU, Pro, adaptor and 1 Gamecube controller for $350. Call it "Tournament ed". And all those people will buy another adaptor and 7 more Gamecube conttollers for lag free tournaments in their frat houses, Club houses, locker rooms and dormitories. Every sports bar in America will buy 1 for tourneys on their big screen tvs.

And dont worry about not having the Gamepad in the box, Wii U has been out for 2 years, its about time Nintendo started selling them separetly for $79. Thats always everybody problem w/ the Gamepad yes or no arguement, just sell it separtely for those who want it. You know it doesnt do much for MK8 either, frat boys will pick that game up as well.

It will happen someday. Maybe not until after the next home console releases in 3 years, but a $99 Wii U w/ Pro will be sold. Wii U Mini - Gamepad sold separaetly. Its inevitable.

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

@aaronsullivan - Sorry, I misinterpreted "upsell" as help sell. You're right.

One of my many issues with SSBU lack of a release date was all the other merchandise that was riding on that 1 game coming out and selling well. Maybe Nintendo should drop the Wii U price to $279 to help sell those controllers, adaptors, amiibo, and all the other games that aren't good enough to help sell the Wii U like Captain Toad, Yoshi and Kirby. I know those last 2 arent due until 2015 but how many people will pick up a Wii U in Feb or March for those? Holiday is the buying - and selling - season for consoles so Nintendo can sell their games - and amiibo - the first half of 2015.

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

@aaronsullivan @ouroborous @SanderEvers - amiibo could certainly help sell Wii U, but when Im in stores or online or reading ads all I see are Skylanders and Disney Infinity. Kids are not asking their parents to get them a Wik U for amiibo b/c no kid knows what an amiubo is.

Forego the price cut fof a huge ad campaigm, amiubo, SSB U and Captain Toad in US - all Wik U exclysives. But they are so exvlusivd right now they barely exist. Poo r poor Captain Toad, everybody should want yhat game but who even talks about it?

"It's an ideal solution for parents with two children"

B/c kids always prefer getting 1 package to open together rather than each having their own present to open. I'm guessing Alex doesn't have any kids. ;-)

I'm guessing Amazon will sell this cheaper - each game is 3 cents cheaper now - so I suspect $79.00 for a 98c savings. And you do get the 100 potions.

I already have 2 $5 GC cards for Target, so thats an $8 savings (cards were $1 each), plus the 5%. Plan may be to use those 2 GC for SSBU, then I'll get another GC for $5 (ok $4 saved), and maybe buy an amiibo w/ that $5 :-)

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

@DeltaPeng - "but this way doesn't require purchasing an amiibo. If Nintendo took the skylander's approach of forcing amiibos to use special equipment or even to use the character itself, it would probably mean content being locked out of SSB4 and only accessibl e to those with the amiibo characters, which would be less generous than Nintendo's current offering and upset a lot of fans. The non-required aspect of amiibo's is part of it's positive selling points."

I think the main difference between us is that you are mainly looking at what's better for the player, the game, and the players pocketbook, while I am interested in amiibo sales. And I do think there is a conflict between making the game enjoyable to people w/o amiibo and making people want to or have to buy amiibo. So you are correct, it's better for the gamer that amiibo aren't playable b/c there is less need to buy them, but b/c there is less need to buy them I think they will sell less than the Skylanders and Disney infinity characters.

Of course we still don't know ANYTHING about how amiibo will function in HW, MK8, CT:TT, Yoshi's World and MP10, so maybe Nintendo is using them sparingly in SSB b/c they will be more necessary in those other games? I think in mid-Nov we'll get an amiibo Nintendo Direct, maybe including Captain Toad as well, that will show people why they should buy amiibo even if they don't need too.

And that was all I said:

"Does this mean all those people who run the tech sites will be counting pixels now to tell us if its 720p or 1080p?"

@aaronsullivan - "Oops back to minecraft! lol"

Yeah, my kids still either play Minecraft every day - mods on PC and couch co-op on PS3 - or watch youtube videos about it. They were super excited about the new Stage Builder in SSB U, and they really want Mario Maker, so at least Nintnedo is chipping away at the need for kids to be creative. Nothing to match LBP3 though which we are all looking forward too. 16 layers is insane.

You decipher Disney Infintiy 2.0 yet? Skylanders in Jan. for us on the Wii U. I'm a big Sony fan since 97 and FF7 but I'm really not impressed by the PS4. Someday, but at least a year away. Maybe 2 if Zelda and XCX both release around holiday 2015.

@Ryno - There's still 2 Wii Minis at my Target, maybe your wife can get you 1 of those for Christmas if Bayonetta 2 is sold out ;-)

@Captain_Gonru - Yeah, Target employees can't comprehend Friday release dates, they always put stuff out on Tues. They just do.

@Peach64 - You forgot lousy broadband in the US. And some companies have limits of maybe 25GB per month. B1 is 17 GB and B2 is 14 GB, that's 31GB so some people wouldn't even be permitted to DL them.

I'm guessing the low stock is based on -

1. low Wii U install base
2. 3rd party game - I know Nitneod bankrolled it but it's still 3rd party
3. W101 (Platinum's other game) was not flying off the shelves
4. rated M for mature in US.

Add those 4 together and I can see retailers not wanting to order a ton of copies. By the time all the great reviews came out it was probably too late.

On the bright side, the $70 used Xenoblade Chronicles scenario hopefully won't happen again as that was a Gamestop exclsuive so they owned every copy, this seems to have a much wider distribution.

@Drawdler - "But what would be the point in that?"

I've posted a dozen times in this thread so I'm guessing your question has to do w/ playing as your amiibo so that's what I'll answer here. If your question relates to something else you probably don't need to read any further :-)

Why make amiibo playable?

1. b/c why not, you paid $13 for it
2. easier to tap it on the Gamepad than move that little finger around and pick from the 40+ character menu
3. when you swap out your character for the FP you get to keep playing (see Skylanders Trap Team) rather than just watching
4. Koreans can spend all their time leveling up characters to 50 then sell them on eBay so time constrained people can play w/ powerful characters too (see MMOs)
5. bring them to a friends house to play as them and show off all the cool stuff you've done to them like my kids have been doing making characters on the 3DS version. They've made lots and lots of characters, not just Miis.

Maybe you haven't spent any time playing Skylanders or been around kids playing Skylanders but kids are NOT going to want to buy these if they can't play as them. Maybe they'll buy 1 or 2 but they are NOT going to want to purchase all 18 if they don't get to play as them. They are just not going to be interested, and the same probably goes for a lot of adults too. They'll rush out to buy a couple but when they realize the NFC are nothing more than NPC the incentive to buy more will be gone, or at least greatly diminished.

People have been conditioned over the pat 3 years to playing AS their toys, not alongside their toys w/ Skylanders and a year for Disney. The amiibo are going to seem "lame" or whatever the kids are calling it today, and they'll sell less. You can't bring out a competing product late to the party after 2 others have already been established and make your product do less than the other 2 and expect your product to be successful.

So I guess the bottom line and most important reason for why you should be able to play as your character is because the competing NFC products Disney Infinity and Skylanders let you.

"Of course, we’d like it on ours at the same time but it’s not a dealbreaker."

Maybe it's not a dealbreaker for them, but its getting that way for me. Rayman delayed, W_D delayed, Project Cars delayed. I understand small indies have limited resources but if you have enough resources to make a game on 4 or 5 consoles at once then 1 more shouldn't be an issue.

Games that get updated, like Keflings seems to have done by including the 3 DLC packs and upgrading the graphics a bit, same for Paper Monsters Uncut, I'm ok with a late release thats staggered. Sony and MS systems don't always get the games at the same time either, but when it's 4 at once and 1 Wii U that's delayed, that's not good.

Wow, didn't expect you guys to break out all 50+ things, though I was expecting some sort of discussion about 4 of the 50+ to be patched in later. I know that's less than 10% but it still seemed worth emphasizing.

Tourney's, sharing, the Miiverse stage and Mewtoo all "later". Special thanks to @jariw for figuring all of that out for me.

Favorite part was the vastly improved Stage Builder. By the time they patch in sharing we should have some really good levels to play on.

Oh, and I don't need to buy any more controllers for 8 player - 1 Gamepad, 3 Wiimotes/nunchucks, 1 Wiimote attached to Classic Pro, 1 Wii U Pro, and 2 3DS each w/ copies of the game.

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

@sinalefa - I can see the amiibo being useful that way, if you can't just use any other CPU player in the game as a partner - for free. Toys R Us is giving a free amiibo w/ the game purchase, I'm hoping Target will match that and we'll gt 1 for free to see how it all works before we decide on buying any more.

Sorry about the lack of demo but it was too soon, maybe mid Nov. Not sure SSBU really needs one though, I think we all know how it plays. I'm not even sure Captain Toad needs a demo, but they should probably put 3 varying levels in the store kiosks to help w/ sales, it might need help, SSBU should sell itself.
