Fuck Shit Stack.



A new nintendo direct came out today
All I can say is thank you Nintendo for finally releasing a Fatal Frame game here in the states. I was looking forward to FF5 and was really dissapointed to hear it might not be coming state side.
The Shin megami Tensei/Fire Emblem game looks interesting.

And 200 cc in mario kart? That's insane. I already get really frustrated with 150 cc.

I've never played Fire Emblem, and I've never played SMT outside the Persona 3/4/Arena games (the latter of which is obviously an outlier, being a fighting game), but... a flashy, over-the-top, apparently sci-fi JRPG on my Wii U?  I'm in.

200cc in Kart?  Will be fun, since I mostly play offline multi with my daughters and it'll just mean GOTTA GO FAST.  Will be nice to be able to get Bowser/Rosalina costumes for the Mii drivers, though I literally never use them (the girls do sometimes, though).  The Animal Crossing stuff is cute though I've never played the game--I really like that you can be pink-hair girl villager, she's the version I always use in Smash--speaking of:

Two characters coming (back) to Smash as reasonably priced DLC?  Not characters I really play much (though Mew Two is fun), but gonna have to get them for completionist's sake.  A bunch of micro-transacted Mii fighter costumes?  Might have to grab a couple of those, but I don't use the Mii fighters much, sooo....

Oh shit FATAL FRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.  Would be nice if they pulled a Bayonetta and included FF4 in a bundle, but not likely.

Also, wool Yoshi amiibo is best amiibo.

Wolly Yoshi Amiibo is the most adorable thing ever. Those are going to sell so fast.

Hopefully Nintendo doesn't pull a Rosalina because that shit is going to be in high demand.

Buuuuuuuuuut they just Rosalina'd* Jigglypuff and that shit sold out in less than a minute and is already getting scalped on eBay, so... we'll see.  Maybe they'll actually restock this one.



(*Specifically, made exclusive to Target, who then didn't restock when they nearly-instantly sold out.  What was really frustrating was that weeks, months after she had become available and sold out they kept putting banners up in-store about how she was only available at Target.)

I have all of four (my kids have Pikachu and Peach, I have Rosalina and Bowser).  I'd have more but I'm not really a fan of how the more realisticly-proportioned characters (ie, Zelda and Link, anyone from Fire Emblem) translate to the smaller form--the cartoonishness of the Mario characters just makes them look so much better in comparison.

I'm not really a fan of how Nintendo has taken what is essentially a child's toy in line with Infinity or Skylanders and turned it into an adult collectible--not just in terms of their forced rarity and vendor exclusives which is skeezy as hell, but in terms of the physical construction of the figures.  Some of them are really solid--hell, I have to remind my 4 year old to be careful when she gets Bowser off the shelf because he's fuckin' heavy, a big green chunk of plastic, and she's dropped him on her head before.  But a lot of them are just flimsy; Pikachu's tail, Peach's stand, and Rosa's wand and Luma are all basically just a ticking clock counting down until they get broken.

(Edit to add: I appreciate that they're explictly physical versions of the Smash trophies, and that gives them a certain dyanamic-ness that other sets lack (see below), but, like... couldn't they have made the trophies in game not require flimsy plastic (or piss-colored?!) rods to hold them in place?  It's just silly, in practice.*)

BUUUUUUUT--that's one thing I like about the Mario Party set (assuming they follow through on having them all be more common) and the wooly Yoshi's (assuming they follow suit):  the former is really sturdily built, albeit less dynamic to look at, and the latter is a legitimate plush TOY, not a delicate display model forcing me to constantly say "Play with them GENTLY, Charlie, remember what happened to Tinkerbell?**"

So I have a love/hate relationship with the things.  If I had more disposable income I'd probably buy a bunch more, but the price point and their general break-ability make me wary of owning most of them.

I also forsee myself buying three of the Yoshis (two pinks and a blue).


*(And it makes me wish for a Final Smash set of multi-character Amiibo statues, which I would legitimately pay extra for.)
**(Tinkerbell, who being a Disney Infinity figure is somwhat more durable, still lost a wing.)

200cc Mario Kart? So excited, even though 150cc feels too fast for me at this point.

I have a problem where I don't like to taint the things I buy and I keep them packaged. So all of my amiibos except one are unopened.

SIGH.

I think one of the first commentors really nails it:
Guys, I just want a stupid little statue of characters from my favourite Fire Emblem game and of my favourite Pokemon.

I did buy one Amiibo - the Mega Man. Just to have something cool sitting above my TV. But I'll be damned if the whole Amiibo craze isn't a damn scam. For one, they are average to low quality Toys, and two, they made the things too rare to find without resorting to scalpers. I also don't like most of the stupid poses that they have them in (come on, "planking Luigi"? wtf), with crummy pieces of plastic to hold them up.

As for the Direct, I thought it was pretty lackluster. Current gen Zelda delayed til next year really killed the mood. No news on the new Fire Emblem, either. And no, I don't really care about SMT.

The King's orders are absolute



I just bought my 13th Amiibo today, Shiek was on clearance at the store I was at and I figured it was less than the average price and went for it. I never imagined I would have this many of the things when I first heard about it. I was deadset on getting Mega Man and Shulk and figured it'd be nice to have a couple other characters I like such as Link and Zelda. My sister's boyfriend has every single one of them (at least of the Smash ones, I don't know on Mario Party) and I wound up getting some from him that I would not have gotten otherwise like King Dedede. Most of this upcoming wave I don't particularly care about though I wouldn't mind getting Lucina if I happen to come across her.

That said, I am looking forward to SMT X Fire Emblem.

I am really thinking of getting that Yoshi Yarn Amiibo. For my, uh, girlfriend.
