So, what happened with Pokémon Stars?

@Khazmo So it'd be perfect if it pandered to nostalgia of people who played it 21 years ago and didn't expand scope for players who have played since?

One flaw in this is the HD Pokémon models you keep referencing. The models have been the same since 2012 with Pokédex 3D Pro and then later X & Y, and have been primed for High Definition since. That is a large part of why the games haven't run as well on the 3DS, they're too high poly for the console and it struggles.

There's also the matter of connectivity. The Switch and 3DS wouldn't be able to easily connect wirelessly locally which would have created a massive issue with VGC.

Sorry but you know how I feel and it hasn't added up at all.

@wellzy4eva To be fair, that feature is in the game as standard. Wolf Link is just a wolf skin of it

@Kiliko Probably because they aren't paywalling things. I suggest you do research before you actually complain again.

@chucklepie I don't think you understand how NFC chips work. NFC chips can't store much data so it has to limit data storage for games that write to the amiibo to one game. It's a matter of the technology not existing. Nothing to do with "money grabbing parasites", but more to do with you not actually understanding technology

People complaining about amiibo scarcity need to actually go to shops more. amiibo are no longer hard to find. Stores have ample supply now.

@NotToday No, they don't hide in-game content. They have extra, superfluous, content that's a bonus if you get an amiibo. Some games, like Super Mario Maker, allow you to get it without the amiibo too.

Wii U lifetime sales pass 10 million, Splatoon sells 1.62m

Serebii

Probably already brought up but an error

Considering Splatoon is Wii U exclusive, and it was on sale for two full months, that's a convincing result for the new IP.
These numbers are as of June 30th 2015 so it's just one full month on sale.

@A_FAN Why would it? If it was the same game like All Stars, then sure, but this is a game in its own right. It is vastly different. Only thing similar is that it's Smash and has the same characters

@SpaceMonkey77 That was a horrible example. Halo fits because it moves onto successive consoles. The user was complaining about Pokémon being forced onto the 3DS which is the exact same situation.

@Sammoore Don't see how my posts contradict themselves. I am saying that it's a minor upgrade, not a successor.

@Black_Tyrant Regarding Pokémon, you're complaining about a game moving from a console to its successor like every single franchise on every single platform has done.
Did you complain when Halo shifted from Xbox to Xbox 360?
