>Nintendo CEO says users aren't using Amiibos correctly. You see people using them as a collector's item rather than using them for software.
Its not fucking fair. Why aren't you using your amiboos????
>majority of amiibo characters have never had official merchandise
>majority of games with amiibo functionality utilize them for cosmetic unlocks
>data has to be overwritten
>kids can't play with them like they could with action figures
>adults buying to resell for easy cash or collect since, again, most characters have never had merchandise
>majority aren't restocked so people obviously aren't going to be carrying them around
Why are they even surprised.
Anyone in this thread, name twelve games that make use of amiibo in a way that isn't just giving you costumes that don't do anything or giving you free items that you could already get.
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.
>release no merch for some of the less mainstream series
>people accordingly buy amiibo of that series to actually have something of their favorite series
>only the fire emblem, shovel knight, and maybe link amiibo are used in an actually meaningful way
Why are people buying these but not using them!?!
Smash and Tennis are the only ones that use them "properly"
>required for Amiibo Festival's dull board modes, AC characters only
>required to play the worst mode in Mario Party 10, specific Mario characters only
>a tacky statue for Happy Home
>Shovel Knight has a co-op mode locked behind it for Wii U, extra levels for 3DS
>Splatoon unlocks recycled missions, clothes, and some minigames that should have been in already
>amiibo tap is a garbage demo app with demos chosen at random from each amiibo
>Xenoblade only uses Shulk for the gallery
>Codename S.T.E.A.M. unlocks Fire Emblem characters
>Rainbow Curse uses only three to make the game even easier
>Captain Toad forces replayability with a half-assed pixel hunt
>Hyrule Warriors unlocks a weapon, then gives out random weapons/materials/rupees
>everything else is costumes
>nintoddlers try their hardest to pretend Amiibos are not physical DLC
>Nintendo complains that people don't use them as such
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.
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.
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.
>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.
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.
i bought squidgirl because she's cute
i bought toon link and samus cuz they were well-painted/sculpted
i got bowser as a gift
>Its not fucking fair. Why aren't you using your amiboos????
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.
There was a reason Kirb and the rest left her after the second one
>Made the unfunny third one
>Got pissed when goons of the like bashed her for being a slut about Brawl Taunts, etc. Said butthurt was used later upon her next shitty flash
>Proceeded to make Street Fighter Club, the most unfunny thing she did yet
>On top of her butthurt and egotism during Brawl taunts when goons mocked her, Street Fighter Chode appeared
>She was pissed over it being on the front page
