General amiibo Discussion Thread
amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.

Super Smash Bros.

Yarn Yoshi

I broke down and bought Link and Samus.

I feel like a fat guy on a diet who just ate a tub of ice cream.

Sometimes I hate you, Nintendo.

Don't talk with your mouth full, fatty.

I wouldn't be surprised if I join you long before Ness is announced, if that ever happens. I'm a sucker for... well, I'm a sucker.

My bro apparently bought me Samus!

He also paid for the game for me! It's in the name of my bday next month, but sometimes my bro's alright :)

I bought villager and yoshi because both were the last in stock. I wanted villager and bought it with my game. Later that night my girlfriend and I went to Walmart and there was one yoshi left and she wanted one. I ended up getting wifi fit trainer because it was the last one at gamestop yesterday when I stopped by (it's next door to a dominos and I was waiting for my pizza). I never opened it. I think I will just give it to my niece for Christmas.

(I know it's been a while since I posted. I love to drive by post and disappear back into the aether).

@VofEscaflowne oh I was going on Jargon's logic and keeping negativity elsewhere but If you're going to give me the red carpet treatment then I'll go ahead (and blame you if everyone gets mad at me )

So I suppose I'll do a little recap to what will hopefully be the closing of my little amiibo rant thread.
Firstly contrary to the claims by @TriforceBun@VofEscaflowne and @missypissy the spinner is confirmed not to be the Twilight Princess DLC weapon, instead we get the dominion rod for Zelda.

Because Nintendo seems to think locking gameplay-changing content like that behind their doll collection is cool.

@Shadowlink seems to agree with them,

Eh I never said this thread isn't meant for negativity or criticism. I just think that there are better ways to present it than you did with your thread and comments inside. And I even said that I agree with certain aspects of the criticism towards amiibo.
Posted: 11/25/14, 07:01:45
Oh great, I get to read this stuff here too. Good times.

I only wish even more content were gated by the amiibo. Then I'd love them even more.

Also, it's gonna be a long wait til Christmas to get all my amiibo.

Shadowlink said:

You mean like coming up with imaginary situations about $200 Amiibo statues or $30 artbooks and then trying to convince us it's the 'exact the same thing'? Yeah, that is pretty dumb.

It's the same basic concept, I don't see how hard that is to understand.
shadowlink said:

And you are literally asking for every piece of content that you want to be offered for sale in the fashion that you want it. Anything else 'ties content to expensive things you don't want' and is therefore 'shitty'.

I suppose you could put it that way. I'm just saying extra content shouldn't be locked by physical goods (unless you count the game itself)

shadowlink said:
The logical conclusion is that you want to buy your game piece by piece, so you don't get any extra crap you don't want.


shadowlink said:
Congratulations. Its that sort of shitty entitlement mentality that got us EA's microtransactional bullshit in the first place. Just what you wanted, right?
um... logic doesn't work that way?

Oh no, it's not. What YOU (and Pokepal) seem to want is a package deal at a price YOU want that gives all of the content YOU want, and none of the things that YOU don't want.

...And Nintendo's shitty simply for not giving it to YOU?
...no, I'm just commenting on how extra content shouldn't be delivered via physical goods.

shadowlink said:
I tell you what. You and Pokepal and all the other people up in arms about not being able to put a costume on your Mii's in Mario Kart can rage and boycott to your heart's content. Let me know how that works out for Nintendo.

I already said that I didn't care about those costumes. (@pokepal148)

Don't bring your silliness here, that's not what this thread is for. And don't use Vof's request as an excuse either. He was asking for information on Amiibo's to be put in this thread, he didn't want your ridiculous thread bumped with legitimate info. That doesn't open the door for you to spread your negativity.

Proper discussion about Amiibo's here, ridiculous entitlement complaints over there. Understand?
Posted: 11/25/14, 23:32:18
@Shadowlink Really? And I take it your idea of 'proper discussion about amiibo' is undying praise?

VofEscaflowne said:

I think criticism is fair but it's the fact that we're using this thread when the OP obviously has hate against these amiibos. It's better to have the other thread be bumped for discussion, whether positive or negative, instead of having this thread be bumped up to further arguments and "I told you so" type posts.

DrFinkelstein said:

I appreciate the gesture. While constructive criticism is welcome in any discussion thread, this is aimed for folks who want to enjoy amiibo without needing to defend positions or sift through any over abundance of negativity. We're here to celebrate and discuss them!

There's constructive criticism, and then there's your ridiculous hate thread. Vof simply didn't want legitimate general discussion being used to give your hate thread oxygen.

Yes there is clearly still a discussion about your negative views to be concluded, but as stated, this thread is not the place for that. It's being kept separate so no-one else needs to deal with it here, they can simply ignore your thread if they want to and know that they aren't missing out on legitimate info.

Stephen understood that from the start. And I think you did too. The fact that you jumped at the slightest excuse to drag your discussion here and the fact that you CONTINUED to drag the discussion here, even after I specifically responded to you back in the other thread is just plain out and out disrespectful trolling. Stop it.

Contrary to what claim? I'm reading that post you highlighted and it clearly states it's a wildcard and the only thing left unconfirmed. I don't recall ever stating it any other way than that. Next DLC patch is TP related, Spinner is a TP item, thought it made sense.

Sorry if your blind hatred blocked that out.
Posted: 11/26/14, 00:56:00
My friend bought both Samus and Fox (EVEN THOUGH FOX IS MY CHARACTER DARN IT) so now I have to buy a different one. I'm leaning towards Pikachu, what do you guys think? I feel like it could be the most useful in the future, there are a lot of Pokemon games.

I'd get Link if it was Toon Link, but I don't like "Real" Link much. And the preorder only lasts until Friday, and then I'd have to pay for it instead of it being free, so I can't wait around until Toon Link hits.
Posted: 11/26/14, 01:22:03
@missypissy actually it was blinded out by the wording

"so it's not hard to imagine."

which to me read as "I am almost certain that this will happen."
Posted: 11/26/14, 01:22:07

Ha!!! I thought you of all people would appreciate expressing displeasure at something. Not enough 4-letter words, I suppose.
Posted: 11/26/14, 01:30:06

So you took my words, twisted them and that's how we got here. Got it.

I don't work for Nintendo and nothing about wildcard sounds confirmed in the normal world.

Pokepal stop acting like a tool.
