Well, I hope people really don't care about the Mario amiibo line, since I want to get all I want without much hassle.

I just ordered some amiibo from Amazon Germany, and still could not find Little Mac or Meta Knight.

@rjejr

I would love that. I am eager to see what gets announced in that regard. DDP alone would be awesome.

I just went to the site and ordered a 3DS Game Case. I thought they had run out of them. After that I still have 900 coins and a ton of unregistered retail games, so I will be covered if they offer "dozens of games" in February as they are promising.

You can add all of Latin America to that list.

Besides, that would only make the scalpers join Club Nintendo and still sell their systems and other prizes at insane prices without Nintendo having any control. It is not like they will check each and every serial number to see what members put their systems on ebay.

@jjx1000

At launch they had a 2gb sd card instead of the current 4gb. If you know you will go the download route you can buy any 32gb card and not kill your wallet as Vita does with their propietary cards.

As with Wii U, they only get you started and they let you choose the amount of space you want/need.

@rjejr

It was the most portable of the three, but some people had hand cramps because of its size and shape, not to mention the issue with scratched screens in the launch version that I doubt they fixed later on. Just one "New" would make it less confusing for people.

Also note that Wii Mini appears, but not the old Wii. So a big hint that they may discontinue that size as they discontinued the old Wii.

EDIT: heck, not even the normal XL appears in the website anymore! So even less confusion if after the old stock sells all XLs will be New systems.

Regarding the article, if the new 3D setting follows my eyes, I guess that means I need to play in well lit environments and that other people besides me will still get the ghost images.

sinalefa commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:

Haha, a friend of mine actually bought a new Wii because his old one would not read it. So he bought a system he had for just one game.

Pretty sure he will do the same with this one. I preferred to wait for my Wii U, and I only played 5 hours and never came back to it.

@rjejr

For release dates I agree, for sales I do not. As the quoted Jax says, you pay extra for the benefit of having the game before. Look at Capt Toad, how waiting for the amiibo compatibility would have been useless, so you did not waste time and enjoyed it before your intended time.

And the Nintendo website says these are weekly sales (no idea for how many weeks) so they will be having different games on sale next week, which is awesome. I would love to see Harmoknight or Sakura Samurai in there.

@rjejr

Are you really complaining for $2.50? As if paying full price for Pushmo World was not a steal to begin with. The only game of the "trilogy" I came close to completing was Crashmo. The last 10 puzzles were way too hard for me. And that is just the main game content.

@rjejr

I am surprised they took so long to mention it as I thought more people were looking forward to X here. There was another exclusive game that looked very interesting. Japanese name, black and white cartoon graphics, and platformer-puzzle based.

"we've covered most of the important news and reveals"

Until you make an article stating that Tingle will be playable in HW, then you will be missing a huge bits of news. ;) Apologies if the article is there and somehow I missed it.

I liked the Direct. A bit bummed about the small New model not making it, but in fact that would help me not buying it and putting that money towards a PSBone instead. So my wallet won't complain.
