Posted on October 20, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Amazon is now taking orders for the new Chrom and Tiki amiibo. You can get both here. Oddly they’re listing as limited time deals, but you shouldn’t encounter any issues actually placing an order.

    Wish I had the money to buy them…

      Buying amiibos is the same as buying loot boxes

      • Dragonage2ftw

        It really isn’t.

        The two things have nothing in common.

        • Adrián Alucard

          You buy an amiibo and you won’t know in what games will work or what content will unlock in the future

          You buy a loot box and you won’t know what content will unlock in the future until you open it.

          • ronin4life

            You buy an Amiibo and have a cool knick-knack to put on your shelf that may also grant access to data usable in some specific software

            You buy a Loot Box and are granted acess to data you may or may not want(or already have) that is not guarunteed to last the life of the base product, let alone the companies lifespan, let alone the storage mediums lifespan that data is stored on(if you are allowed to store or even use the data without being in a state of persistant connection to a host server)

          • Adrián Alucard

            What you call a “cool knick-knack” is what I call s**t. I don’t collect figures, so, why should I buy those c****y figures to unlock stuff in my videogames? Stuff that is already “on disk”, of course

            Why shoud I buy a 15€ figure to unlock a sound test in a game and who knows what else in who knows in what games that are still unnanounced? Who knows if I will want or not the content that unlock in games that do not exist at the moment? Who knows the lifespan/support of the amiibo? Maybe it will work in only one game or will work with 20 games

          • Radish

            No one is forcing you to buy anything. It’s amazing this has to be explained to you.

          • Adrián Alucard

            If I want to enjoy the full experience, yes. Don’t forget difficulty settings, multiplayer modes, characters, etc. are locked behind amiibos. It’s not just cosmetic stuff

          • Evan Gustavson

            I couldn’t get certain trophies in melee unless I owned certain games that I want.
            Or for instance, you had to play Ranger to get a Manaphy in D/P.
            You had to preorder Collosseum in the US or buy Channel in European to get a Jirachi.
            Or to get endgame gear, the second half of the story, the last Heart Container, and even some optional equipment in the Legend field Zelda: oracle of Ages/Seasons, you had to own both games.
            This isn’t limited to Nintendo, btw.
            In the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tag Force series, for PSP/Vita, to get certain cards, you had to own 9 copies of those cards in the previous Tag Force game. (You can only ever run 3 of a card at most, and you could use the same copy in multiple decks, but the inventory caps at 9, which had no purpose outside of Tag Force)
            This really isnt much different in execution to a cross save bonus.
            So let’s just call it a cross purchase bonus.
            Buying one product gets you some icing on the cake in another.

          • Adrián Alucard

            No, it’s not like cross save bonus. If you like certain franchises you’ll probably will buy all of it’s game. So it’s a reward to loyal fans. I do like videogames, but I do not collect figures of any kind. So amiibos and DLCs are a way to punish all the fans thar are not fanatics who buys all the related merchandise.

            But still I can give you examples of games that had a ton of extra content for free and example of the very same franchises that are objetively worst

            Sound test in Metroid Zero mission was free, the same goes to the image gallery, of course if you conect with Metroid Fusion you’ll get some extra images, but still, it was free… In Samus return the sound test only cost 13-15€, more if you do not find the amiibo and buy it to a scalper

            Marvel vs Capcom 2 had 56 characters, but you start with 24 and must unlock 32 extra characters. MvC: I have only 30 character and you must buy 6 extra characters…

            The first console release of Street Fighter Alpha 3 had 34 characters plus a ton of single player modes and three playstiles for each character. Street Fighter V launched with only 16 character and basically one mode, online, that wasn’t even fully functional

            RE 4 had costumes, weapons and modes to unlock for free moner RE games do not offer anything for free…

          • Symbol de Au

            Most of the costumes, weapons, etc in the new Resident Evil games are unlockable for free, and the bonus modes are usually just available from the start.

          • Adrián Alucard
          • Symbol de Au

            I didn’t say there wasn’t DLC I said most of the costumes etc are unlockable in game. You also said “moner RE games do not offer anything for free…” so either way you’re wrong. Though, to be fair I may be wrong too when I say “most” I don’t care enough to count. But speaking of counting. The number of unlockables in Resident Evil 6 is higher than in Resident Evil 4. There were more costumes, and the same amount of modes unlockable for free. Well, actually like I said most of the modes are unlocked from the start but that doesn’t change the fact that there are more modes in the game.
            http://residentevil.wikia.com/wiki/Unlockable_costumes_in_Resident_Evil_6
            http://www.ign.com/wikis/resident-evil-6/Cheats_and_Unlockables
            I’m also pretty sure there were more unlockable weapons. Resident Evil 4 only has more if you count the cutscenes…which would still lose because Resident Evil 6 had a bunch of figurines that you could unlock. I’m not even counting the costumes you unlock through the website. The website is also free by the way. It doesn’t even have micro transactions, it’s just a bonus community thing. Heck, I don’t even think the website has ads except for other Resident Evil games.

          • Radish

            They give you a full experience. If you don’t feel like the game without the DLC or Amiibo functionality is worth it, don’t buy it.

            Most people want the $13 they spend on an Amiibo to actually do something exciting in games.

          • Adrián Alucard

            Nope, Games with “on disk DLCs” are not complete. The same goes to DLCs anounced after the game launch. And of couerse I don’t buy DLCs and unfinished games, I do not like to feel cheated.

            I’ve been playing videogames for more than 25 years and I’ve always unlocked difficulties, characters, modes, costumes, maps… for free just playing. Buying DLC is not exciting is just a company charging for stuff that was free not too long ago.

          • Radish

            You must have a very limited gaming library then, because most games have some form of DLC whether it is free or paid. Welcome to modern gaming. If you understood how much it costs to develop a big game these days, you would understand this is just business.

            I’ve been playing for more than 25 years as well, and there have always been extra features that cost more (Star Fox 64 and Donkey Kong 64 costed more than the typical game because they included add-ons like the expansion pack and rumble pack, to name a couple examples).

            If you can’t enjoy a game just because you can’t get one small extra thing then maybe that says more about you than the game.

          • If you want to raise the price of a game, raise the price. Don’t add in these deceptive microtransactions and keep the “price” at $60.

            And no, most games don’t have DLC of any form.

          • Radish

            Explain to me how Mario Kart 8’s DLC was deceptive. And yes, most games today have DLC, at least the successful games. Again, NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO BUY ANYTHING. You guys act like there is a gun to your head with this nonsense. It’s very simple, if you don’t want the game or the DLC, don’t buy it. It seems kinda silly to get worked up over something you don’t even want to buy.

          • You’re seriously picking the game they half-finished for wiiu and released as complete for switch? They threw in battle mode at the last minute, forgot to put in actual battle courses, then decided they were saving them for the next system instead of releasing them as DLC, so you had to not only buy the game again, but buy a whole new $300 system for it.

            What could be more deceptive than that?
            Did you seriously pick the worst-case example to demonstrate how weak your side is?

          • Radish

            The game was complete on the Wii U. Are you actually missing out on the best Mario Kart game since the N64 because of some battle courses?

            It only strengthens my argument, most of the best Switch games so far have DLC: Zelda, Mario Kart 8, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario + Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, Super Mario Odyssey, etc. Boy you are missing out on some great games because you can’t spend a few extra dollars apparently.

          • Adrián Alucard

            My library Is not limited (in 3DS, for example, I have +40 physical games and growing), in other platforms (PC) I just wait to the complete editions and sales. Plus, I do not like modern gaming (AKA casual gaming) but I still like niche games, those developers still know how to please their fans.

            And don’t compare add-ons with DLCs it’s just not the same situation.

          • Radish

            Explain the difference then. You have no modern games, because no modern games don’t have DLC. You’re missing out. Have fun waiting for the complete edition of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

          • Adrián Alucard

            Kid Icarus, Pokemon, Monster Hunter (it only have free DLCs) Shin Megami Tensei franchise and Etrian Odyssey franchise (its DLCs are basically grinding maps and broken equipment to make the game easier while other kind of DLCs are usually free for early adopters) Bravely Default and Second, Rhyhtm Paradise Megamix, Xenoblade, Shinobi, Metal Gear 3D, Tales of The Abyss, DoA Dimensions, Ocarina of Time, Senran Kagura, The 7th Dragon…

            While in Switch I have only 2 games Disgaea 5 and Puyo Puyo Tetris

            And in PC I just wait to sales, since complete editions usually launch one year later, so, no problems here.

            Regarding of Zelda, well, I have zero interest in generic open world games, so I’m not waiting for a complete edition of Zelda BotW. I liked Zelda for its dungeon/temples and puzzles and since BotW simplified those features and didn’t added any valuable feature (seriously, a giant map where the only think you can do is keep encountering the same enemy camp and the same guardians again and again is not fun, just repetitive and boring), plus the game is a pay to win, buy the amiibos and unlock better gear (hey, it’s random, like a lootbox. You pay 15€ for an infinite and daily lootbox) earlier in the game so you have advantage.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            Uh.

            Nintendo tells us EXACTLY what we’re getting for the specific games the amiibo’s are for.

            Lootboxes are just slot machines.

          • You’re praising urine over feces here, bro
            Both of these things belong in the toilet

          • Adrián Alucard

            So, for example, Someone who bought Samus and Zero Suit Samus amiibos for smash bros. already knew the rewards in Samus Returns? I never noticed that. My fault.

          • Dragonage2ftw

            But you already know what you’re getting in Smash.

            Which is more information than what the average lootbox gives you.

          • R.Z.

            You buy an amiibo, you get a nice little figure, you know what it does in already published games and you can be sure it will be used again in the future.
            Plus in games where they act like loot boxes, they can usually be used daily.

            You buy a loot box, you spend money for one chance to maybe get something cool in one game and if you don’t too bad for you.

          • Adrián Alucard

            Look

            http://residentevil.wikia.com/wiki/Unlockables_in_Resident_Evil_4

            A lot of cool stuff you can unlock just playing the game, no DLCs, no amiibos, but still a lot of things to get some crazy cool weapons and costumes for free. Why should I pay for stuff that was offered for free?

          • R.Z.

            These were the times …
            Welcome to the “future” where games cost so much to make they have to milk players to death.

          • Adrián Alucard

            Most AAA games cost that much because the multimillionaire ad campaigns, not because development costs.

          • R.Z.

            It can happen that marketing costs are higher than those of development, but that’s rarely the case as far as I can tell.
            The multimillion add campaigns are still the result of the dev costs skyrocketing to the point of games being too expensive for publishers to be able to afford failure.

          • Adrián Alucard

            Destiny (the first one) cost $500 millions, most of that budget was for marketing

          • Cyntheta Luis

            That’s because game developers are underpaid…..

  • I pre-ordered at Play Asia but since I live in Brazil I have to wait two months for it to arrive kek

    • Aline Piroutek

      High taxes on importing?

      • I’ve bought some times at Play Asia and never got taxed, the problem is just the time

  • Pinkie-Dawn

    I lost my chance to get a Tiki amiibo when I went to collect the special edition of FE Warriors I pre-ordered.

  • R.Z.

    Got these along with FEW, for some reason.
    Chrom’s face is pretty good, unlike with the other realistically proportioned amiibo.
    I think it’s worth noting.
