I've always found the yearly model a bit ridiculous, which I think is already a turn-off for most people since it's so blatant. I will say that 3.0 seems like an improvement over the lackluster 2.0, but I just don't see this current model working out well for them in the long run.

Honestly, the only time I ever used it was during Breaking Bad, which was highly entertaining. It's a shame it didn't take off, because there were some good ideas there.

@Kaeobais I use it all the time, since it's the only universal remote that has ever worked with my TV.

I don't care so much about the faceplates, but they are a nice alternative if you don't like the standard console colors. With the current situation I have the choice between red, black, or nothing, and I'm choosing nothing. I wouldn't mind getting a regular New 3DS instead of an XL if it meant being able to at least customize the appearance.

Faceplates would've been a great alternative to those lackluster color choices that they decided to launch with. I'm also not a MH fan and I didn't bother trying to get the Majora's Mask edition because I hate gold, so those two had to be written off as well.



solcross commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

I definitely feel like they dropped the ball. What kind of message do they think they're sending out when people are in an uproar about certain figures allegedly being discontinued, and there's no clear response to it? The vague "some figures may not return" bit is such a non-answer.



solcross commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

@ZBomber That's on GameStop for letting you pre-order it, not Nintendo. I was working at a store when Wii and PS3 came out, and the managers would not let us stop taking pre-orders even though we obviously wouldn't be able to fulfill them all. In the end we had almost 60 reservations, and our store only ended up getting like 5 consoles.

This is not the first time they've over sold pre-orders, and it won't be the last.



solcross commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I really hate to break it to you, but every time this game gets mentioned on /v/ there's always someone saying it's cancelled, sometimes with faux-insider statements. There aren't enough grains of salt that you can take this with.



solcross commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I looked around online for it on Thursday night, and the only place that still had it was Walmart who promised it would arrive at my home the next day. They shipped it already, but spoiler alert, it did not arrive the next day. Which is fine because I haven't bought the game yet.



solcross commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

Looks alright I guess. Definitely not worth paying full price for, so I'll look for it when it's in the bargain bin or when Best Buy starts clearancing it out for ten bucks like Black Flag and Mass Effect for Wii U.



solcross commented on Nintendo Teams Up With Loot Crate To Deliver a...:

I'm hoping there's at least a Loot Crate-exclusive variant for one of the figures, like Fire Mario or something. I was previously hoping Club Nintendo would've done that this year for the Platinum Rewards since it would've been just in time for the Amiibo release.



solcross commented on Collectors Be Warned, Some amiibo Figures Will...:

I assume it's going to be the characters that probably wouldn't sell as well anyway. Hopefully they don't announce who the characters are, so scalpers don't make the market for them even worse. Chances are if there's a character you want, you would have gotten it anyway by the time they start getting to the point where they're retiring figures.



solcross commented on Watch Dogs Companion App Updated For Compatibi...:

I remember being super optimistic about the Wii U version, because it seemed like it would've meshed very well with the platform.

We've barely heard anything about the port other than what the game WON'T have, so nothing about what Ubisoft has done is inspiring any confidence.



solcross commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Planning To Release Amiibo F...:

I'm curious to see if there'll be a way to transfer data between Amiibo figures. I say that because I'm sure we'll see variants of characters down the line (like a fire Mario, for example), so it would kinda suck to have to start all over.



solcross commented on Club Nintendo Distributing Tomodachi Life Demo...:

Ah bummer. I'm really on the fence about this game and this probably would've nudged me one way or the other. I also got skipped over for the Christmas cards, despite having a Wii U since launch and getting a ton of games for it.
