>>324155581 I'm saying they make content for the purpose of giving you, the consumer, the incentive to buy Amiibos, and not for this they wouldn't bother doing it. For example, the Amiibo mode in Mario Party 10 wouldn't have been made otherwise.
>>324155313 >Nintendkids >Mc Donalds toys >Physical DLC >Nintendo vs Sony posts >Autism >Amiibos are useless they don't do anything >Amiibos are bullshit they lock content There we can all go home now.
Amiibos are fun to collect. Sure there are some that are terribly designed but i ignore them. I just collected all the Mario characters and plan on getting the rest of the third party characters from Smash and i'll probably be done with Amiibos unless they make a Sonic collection. Personally i just use them for display and dont bother trying to level them up and shit
>Your favorite characters finally have some merchandise >Real life Smash trophies >Cloud as official Nintendo merchandise >Bayonetta I don't see a problem. Plus "physical DLC" is stupid because they only lock away purely aesthetic things that don't matter. Excerpts Link which locks a weapon in Hyrule Warriors
I wish amiibos were worth owning, from a /toy/ soldier's perspective. If they made those nintendo Nendroids and Figmas have amiibo chips in them that would be great, but I'm not gonna spend that much money on a static figure that wasn't even properly designed.
Whose fucking idea was it to just take the Smash promotional poses? 90% of them don't lend themselves to figure form at all, they have to make stands and iceblocks and shit.
>>324155497 >Wouldn't exist without amiibo Are you fucking retarded?
At no point in time while they were developing a KIDS TOY did they say "Hey wait I got an awesome idea why don't we lock the content we were originally going to put into the game into this toy instead so people are FORCED to buy it?"
>>324155497 >and the content they unlock wouldn't exist if not for Amiibos.
Even if that's true, the development resources they pour into amiibo shit could have been used to make the game better in other ways.
But don't try to tell me the spinner weapon wasn't just gated off because nintendo probably mandated koei add some amiibo support. Or the costumes in rainbow curse which used to be unlockable in canvas curse, but now just dumbed down and relegated to amiibo. Or characters in codename steam
>>324160831 >Plus "physical DLC" is stupid because they only lock away purely aesthetic things that don't matter. Excerpts Link which locks a weapon in Hyrule Warriors
Twilight cave Splatoon missions Codename steam characters rainbow curse had potential for extra characters shovel knight coop amiibo party in mario party 10 retro mushroom in mario maker two yoshis in wooly world super chibi robo hide and seek in captain toad
None of these are just aesthetic shit. Some are bigger losses than others, but don't say bullshit that they are just for extra costumes
>>324155581 As far as "physical DLC" goes, amiibo is probably the least offensive figure line because of how inconsequential most of the bonuses are, even if some of them (see >>324162420 ) get to be a bit much.
If we're gonna bitch and moan about anything, it should be shit like Disney Infinity and Lego Dimensions, which are designed ENTIRELY AROUND making people buy dozens of toys to experience the full game.
I'm a longshoreman. A year ago my union was involved in a contract dispute with out employer. I found more discussions about it on /r/amiibo than anywhere else on the internet. It was actually pretty frustrating because this kids were using words like "strike" incorrectly. I got banned from the subreddit after correcting a few morons on the intricacies of collective bargaining. It's a pretty shit community of losers.

On the other hand, you could argue that those games at least contain it to one game. With Amiibos, literally every Nintendo game after 2014 has some form of paywalled content (however small it may be).
I had the misfortune of walking into a Best Buy on a release date for one of those things and there was just a long smelly line of landwhales with long hair at the checkout line. The girl at the register said none of them could even look her in the eye. The PC guy meme is dead accurate for Nintendo fans.
>>324161857 This. I just got Megaman, Chibi-Robo and Dedede because I like Megaman and Chibi, and I main Dedede. It helps that those two happen to actually look good, unlike any selection of FE characters.
Disney Universe on PS4 is the same shit. I've seen gameplay videos and it looks like it would be right up my alley. But I'm not about to buy some plastic shit just to play a game. i'm 100% digital on my ps4. I have money. But I refuse to buy a fucking figuring and plug it in to my system to do some shit I could just as soon do with a download.
>>324167367 I guess it just depends on how you see it. If you don't want the Skylanders figures, then you probably won't want the game, so it's no loss to you. If you don't want amiibos, you still might want Nintendo games, but you'll find that there are certain things in the games you can't get with out the toys.
They're hoarders. Mentally ill, compelled to collect useless trinkets, and I'm convinced they have a subconscious desire to support Nintendo unconditionally and devote themselves to Nintendo's success
On a side note, anybody noticing that /v/ is shit right now? As in, RIGHT now? Was 4chan in the news or something? It feels like we're being raided, /v/ is uncharacteristically shitty at this very moment
>>324167367 It's not "being able to use it across multiple games" it's "you are literally locked out of content across multiple games UNLESS you buy an overpriced McDonald's toy you have no interest in."
Don't fucking spin it as if it has some greater value because Nintendo is shoehorning it into everything now.
Good uses: >Smash Only just stores custom AI data meant to be transfered easily between games. >Woolly World/Mario Maker/Mario Kart Simple crossover costumes that have no bearing on gameplay
OK uses: >Shovel Knight Partly jewish locking coop mode behind it, but also uses it well for custom knight save transfers and they DID make these modes for the game waaaay post launch, so it is kinda just proper physical DLC.
Shit uses: >Splatoon Purely just physical DLC day one. No save data use and no use of pre existing amiibos.
>>324168491 Palutena easily has to be one of the worst. Lots of later amiibos improved significantly in quality, especially ones like the Splatoon amiibos. This just plummeted right back to Morth tier though.
>>324161640 Guns and gear are reskins of existing items, levels are reskins of single player campaign levels redone with a different weapon or timed with invincibility on, so you paying 30 dollars for 2 minigames and tarted up sound test.
>IT'S OPTIONAL >YOU DON'T NEED IT >THEY'RE NOT LOCKING AWAY ANYTHING >AMIIBOS UNLOCK ACROSS MULTIPLE GAMES
And with each big push, they keep locking more and more content away and requiring specific new Amiibos to unlock content while old ones like Wii Fit or Rob are worth shit but cost just as much the rest of them.
>>324155313 >amiibo are first announced >I insist that they're DLC in physical form >catch nothing but shit from nintendrones that say it makes no sense because the D stands for digital >current day and it's exactly what I said. Enjoy your physical DLC with the DRM being that it has to be present in one spot to be used.
>>324155313 >Hah fucking losers buying a $12 figurine just for a dlc map >Have you got your $40 season pass yet for the extra 3 missions and and spare companion yet
as far as dlc goes giving people in game rewards for purchasing real life physical goods is a step in the right direction, once we get "free to play *amiibo required to access any character aside from like 2 or 3 also unlock bonus stages and costumes"
>>324162092 >the development resources they pour into amiibo shit could have been used to make the game better in other ways. Are you retarded? The reason they even have that extra time for development is because they expect to make money back through amiibo.
