If you like buying pointless happy meal toys.

http://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-officially-confirms-that-metroid-samus-returns-fusion-mode-can-only-be-unlocked-with-amiibo/

If you want to play Metroid 2 Remake on hard, you need to buy a stupid ass happy meal toy. Additionally.

https://www.gamereactor.eu/news/560143/Save+settings+gear+and+more+to+amiibos+in+Splatoon+2/

If you want to be able to save different load out options like you do in Battlefield or Call of Duty, you need to buy a stupid ass happy meal toy.

Now I know some of you worthless, degenerate, corporate clowns will apologize for this, but for us normies who don't want to buy a stupid ass happy meal toy, and instead would just like to be able to unlock a difficulty setting and have a basic ass function other mp games have day damn 1, on the disc, it's a bit of an irritant.

Read: not some grand discrediting of the quality of the game, that can still be good, splendid even, but the dlc part that is tied to amiibo have always been bullshit. Pretending otherwise makes you a certified idiot.

We've entered a new era where DLC comes in an other form.

This is just bullshit.

Yeah I wasn't digging the whole amiibo thing from the beginning. I exchanged Christmas gifts with a friend once. I got him a gamecube controller as the new smash was out. What he'd get me? A fucking Mario amiibo. I think I used it like one time and was like yeah... This is uhh... so cool?

I read about this on neogaf a few days earlier, and yes, it's incredibly stupid. Despite how much I love Metroid, I'm considering not getting the game at all, because that's how much this amiibo nonsense puts me off. I don't want any of these stupid things, and if you're going to lock something behind them, choose something superfluous like a costume, which is still bs, but at least don't make it a basic game setting.

At the least it's getting the used game/amazon used game treatment.

At this rate when I get a Nintendo Switch it'll be a Zelda/Mario Kart/Splatoon/Fire Emblem/Arms machine. This amibo paywall I'm not really feeling it. Seems like an asinine dlc that my kid may end up losing smh

It seems so, because it reads as: *currently unavailable*

lol, so even if we were ok with this as an acceptable practice, in typical Nintendo fashion, they've understocked it.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the way Nintendo is utilizing Amiibos lately.

Locking ministages away in Hey! Pikmin.

Locking modes away in Samus returns.

I love how you have to keep buying new ones to get access to the DLC for the newest games.

They could make it so any Amiibo works but nah, you better go out and buy some new ones !

Don't hate them but never bothered to buy them. I only have the Wolf Link Amiibo that is still sealed but that was because it came with Twilight Princess HD. For the most part, I'm neutral to them, I like them as cool looking display pieces just for show.

I remember a time when people say Nintendo would not do DLC and yet here we are today.

The mode being locked to the amiibo is aweful and people buy them should be a shame. The expansion Zelda is at least worth the $20

Microsoft started all this dlc shit on consoles, they also started the online paywall for consoles. Basically, you have Microsoft to blame for all stupid shit on consoles.

Not all DLC is created equal, good DLC exists. So that one doesn't really fly, because so far Microsoft has never charged me for a happy meal toy for basic shit like a difficulty mode or a basic quality of life feature for a multiplayer game like Nintendo has. I know that level of nuance is difficult for you, what with you being a corporate servant, but as stated, for us normies, it's a bit eye roll inducing.

I was here before you last gen and he was firmly lodged up the Xbox 360's bunghole.

How was I lodged on the 360's bunghole by chance? What with me buying a Wii at launch, a PS3 for metal gear, and all of my favorite games of last gen distinctly not being 360 exclusive in any manner? Might want to retry this approach sunshine. We're not all servants like the rest of you.

Eh, I just use an rf scanner at the store to get all the Amiibos. Typically, you just run it under the box and you're good fam.

For normal games, I get my difficulty option either when i hit new game and asks me what difficulty I want to play it on, or I beat the game, and it unlocks a difficulty mode. No rf scanner necessary, crazy I know.

It's stupid... and last I checked you still need to open up the amiibo in order to get it to work.

It just happens to be that the only 4 amiibos I have will be give me all the dlc for Sams return s, but I ain't opening them up.

Which brings up another point.... you need 4 SEPARATE amiibos to unlock everything. That's some expensive day 1 dlc. BS

I actually totally agree. All this stuff that is bouncing around in the game code that I bought is mine for the taking. If I buy an Amiibo, it's because I like the figure, not because I've been paywalled into subservience.

Said 4 separate amiibos are also in short supply, and then become a pain in the ass to buy later. If not out of any reasonable price range for a shitty happy meal toy.

Intent is whatever, your money is still supporting a shit heel dlc practice regardless of how you used your happy meal toy or not. Now my thread doesn't give a shit about how you clowns spend your money, that's on you.

But, it's a bullshit tactic on Nintendo's part. The DLC could be a lot more inconsequential at the least, if it had to be content to begin with.

I don't mind dlc myself but this is dumb on Nintendo's part for a couple of reasons. First being that to lock basic game settings with dlc is an incredibly lousy thing to do. Secondly, and this may be even more egregious, is the locking of content behind a physical product that's limited to availability. So even if people wanted to spend their money to get this they may not be able to actually get it.

The real issue here, from my perspective, is that you cannot even unlock the Metroid Fusion mode without buying a figurine.

If I was buying this game, I would do research on its prices and make the decision whether to buy it or not.

Metroid is one of the few franchises I wouldn't mind paying premium to enjoy, well because it's Metroid.....but you don't allow me to have a game mode even with cash? That one is a little difficult to swallow, so best thing for the fans to do is go on social media and let them know. Basically if those figurines are sold out, you won't be able to get this mode. Anyways, just my 2 cents but without knowing all the facts, and how good the fusion mode is, it makes it difficult to comment much on this.

If this game is only ~4 hours long like the original will make this game a bigger disappointed.
