I would be shocked if the NX did not launch with a "Nintendo World" amiibo sandbox title. There is a lot of potential for a game like that.

Imagine if there was a Zelda amiibo line, and each version of Link in amiibo form unlocked a different option for a partner/guide/annoying pest? Ocarina Link unlocked Navi, Spirit Tracks unlocked Ghost Zelda, Wolf Link got Midna. Could be a fun way to flavor the game with a bit more than a new outfit without being "essential" since Nintendo doesn't want to do that.

If they eventually offer replacements I'll probably buy one near the end of the next generation as a backup in case this one fails.

No new puzzle to go with it? Bummer.

We hit the holiday season. I have a feeling we will be hard pressed to get enough people until the festivities pass.

I'm guessing Wooly World sold exceptionally well because of the amiibo pack-in.

Ah hahaha! What an odd job that was!

Gotta go with the Dalton, Timothy Dalton.

I've begun to curb my expectations because of the overly glowing reviews. Also notice most of them have been raving about the "subject matter" such as abuse.

"...there are also powerful topics of PTSD, abuse, assault, shame, and death dealt with in a mature and intriguing manner – this is a new height for Marvel..."

I'm not opposed to covering these topics, but these reviews appear to be driven by people with a bent towards a certain social agenda. I just hope it doesn't cause people to over hype the show and lead to disappointment because these are great topics to tackle.

Apparently Gamestop kiosks have had the Roy figure removed from the lineup. My guess is that was supposed to be a part of the December Smash Direct. We may see the rest of the DLC characters revealed as well.

Pity they couldn't get Dementium out in time for Halloween. I might pick this up instead of getting the other chapters of Moon.

I think that was a rumored discount. I remember reading about it too. It would be a great time to pick it up if I had the money.

I kind of want Mewtwo. He's an old Smash/RBY favorite.

The thing is, I want the Retro three but I like ROB's Famicom deco more than the NES version. I absolutely love the Game and Watch pose gimmick though, and Duck Hunt is adorable...

Some of the individual retro characters are dirt cheap on Amazon. I saw an import of Duck Hunt's solo package for $10 + Prime shipping a few days ago.

If anyone else has a spare demo code to share I would like to try it out. Or is it now available to demo on the eShop?

Fear not. Current rumor is a non-store-exclusive Ness, Gold Mario, and Meta Knight restock along with a US release of Famicom ROB. People are getting a ton of info from the amiibo kiosk updates.

And I wouldn't be surprised if you could find the Retro Three and Olimar in the wild. There are reports of Gamestops with plenty still available and I have seen Olimar in stores as well.

Amiibo has finally hit it's supply stride it seems.

I still want to know what SJW stands for. I don't think Pokepal's answer was serious.

Gonna be at Wal-Mart on Thanksgiving Day to snag a Modern 8-bit Mario for my sister. I might pick up an extra if I can.

Looks like I'm getting 8 then. This will be my first DQ game since Dragon Warrior 3 on the Gameboy Color. Should be fun.

I cannot get over my excitement for Roy's amiibo. It looks glorious. Hopefully we will see a rerelease of Lucina and Robin to go with it.

Picked up Mewtwo yesterday and Falco is next week.

There is a 'Lite' forum. I use it all the time. Works great other than the loss of images. It is also a little clunky for forum games, but it is a nice tool for mobile.

Here is the link for you:

If you had to choose one or the other of these DQ games, which would you recommend?

If it is like the Japanese one both games are on one card with a special sticker on it.
