Amiibos are the most cancerous product that Nintendo has ever put out. They unlock DLC thats already in your game, but since Amiibos are limited in stock you have to pay a fuckton for a cheap figure that will unlock a costume or some other shit.

That is pretty much a given,

Also did they really expect people to buy them and not see them as collector's items? How dense are these guys?

>>323563693
Chibi-Robo Zip Lash lets you turn into super Chibi-Robo which gives you more speed, health, and makes your special attack charge faster. It also adds an in-game gumball machine type thing that gives you collectible figures to store in a gallery. Any non-Chibi-Robo amiibo that came out before the game's release adds an entry to said gallery, once used.

Also you can use amiibo once a day for 2 things: A fortune teller mini-game that requires you scan the Chibi-Robo amiibo and gives you some random number from 1-100 in luck and tells a lame fortune (no clue if it affects the game), and then you can scan any individual amiibo once a day for 50-100 of the game's currency.

They really went out on amiibo shit for this game that hardly got attention. The game came with the amiibo at normal price though.

>thralls buy DLC toys and claim they wanted the toy anyway
Exactly the same situation as with preordering shitty games for TF2 hats. Amiibo enablers should be given the lethal injection.
>>
>>323561013
Maybe if they actually did anything cool I would use them. I just leave them on my shelf
>>
They just need to make descent f2p games that unlock content with amiibo, digital in game money or with the eshop money
>>
I do use my Amiibo though. I scan them to unlock random cosmetic shit in some games and Splatoon challenges, then they sit on a shelf because what else do I do with them? Sm4sh is still the game that benefits the most from Amiibo and that loses its appeal once you learn that an Amiibo that's higher than level 9 is still just as smart as a level 9 CPU, but literally cheats to appear like it's a tougher opponent. Not to mention that autists like me that have next to or literally all the Smash Bros characters don't have the time nor care to level each figure to 50
>>
>preorder 10 shulks when they were announced
>sell them on ebay for 65 dollars each
>months before they even came out

technically could have never sent them and just kept the money since it was out of the 45 day range but i didnt want to feel like an asshole so i sent all of the amiibos.

Did the same with pit, sold em for 45 bucks.

made good money on them. only cost maybe 3 bucks in fees and 2 bucks to ship.

amiibos were definitely worth the flip.
>>
>>323561976
Totally this. As a nintendrone that i am, i feel ashame for the lack of use they give to amiibo as a nfc technology. Its a wasted potential for card games, f2p games, cross platform integration and software revalue

I'm probably one of the biggest Chibi-Robo fans and I had to put the game down from sheer boredom. I kept trying to push myself to keep playing it, but it was such a bland game. Shame though, since the Amiibo features were pretty ok and I enjoyed getting all the in-game Chibi Robo figures

So? Sakurai didn't want Smash to become "competitive" but it did. It doesn't matter what Nintendo says, we're the consumers and we can use our purchases however we want within the legal boundaries.

>>323563693
In Splatoon, you can also unlock new minigames, including a Jukebox mode. It's pretty cool to use in those times you're stuck in a lobby for 2 damn minutes.

No-one here fell for the Amiibo meme.
They either bought it as a collectors item or grumbled about Splatoon bullshit and bought it anyway.
>>
>users aren't using Amiibo correctly
Well then make a damn game where you get to actually use them, with no cosmetic/item unlock bullshit. I know /v/ would turn around and say "hurr, now Nintendumb sold out", but listen:

>name it Super Smash Bros. Adventure (you know, like that thing we all missed in Smash 4)
>use any Smash-compatible Amiibo (or any other Amiibo, depending on how many characters they want)
>plays like Champions of Norrath/Gauntlet (and inevitably...Skylanders)
>up to 4 players

Don't tell me you wouldn't buy that shit.

People complain that amiibos are nearly useless because they only unlock cosmetics in most games.

But if Nintendo made a game that utilized amiibo heavily (think Disney Infinity of Skylanders) people would complain about 90% of the game being locked behind physical DLC.

Nintendo literally can't win.
>>
>>323563693
>>Shovel Knight has a co-op mode locked behind it for Wii U, extra levels for 3DS

And Custom Knight. Also those extra levels are for the WiiU version too.

Easier way:
>Make Smash MOBA/ASSFAGGOTS
>Free to play
>Real money to unlock a character or use your amiibo to Unlock
>Swim in money

>>323561013

They need to separate Amiibos and games entirely

It's clear that nobody likes NFC shit, it's all just collectors hoarding happy meal toy collections

Maybe if people had some games to use them in.

If you genuinely think people should die for holding an opinion you don't agree with, especially over something as petty as a video game, you must have some serious ego issues going on.

Because its a dumb mechanic that amounts to "go buy toys so you can play a video game slightly differently", and its not like they can even keep the good ones in stock. Its the same damn problem you always see with this shit. You want to buy He-man, but the only thing in the store is 20 copies of Stinkor, or you want a ninja turtle, but there's nothing but mutagen man lining the shelves.
