Yep, core Pokemon game and Prime 4 were excellent news.

The Nintendo Direct gave us a look at what's coming for Pokemon: 


Pokken Tournament DX (glad I didn't buy the Wii U version)

Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon (for 3DS...there goes the "Pokemon Stars rumors)

Pokemon Gold and Silver remakes on VC

I never used my coupon last year.  Deals they offer suck.

#13700193 McDonald's (USA) now has Super Mario Happy Meal Toys

Posted by Rig on 26 April 2017 - 02:16 PM

I collected McDonald's toys as a kid.  Pretty sure there's still four or five large boxes of them in my parents' attic. 

That being said, I will likely stop and buy the set.


You don't have to buy a Happy Meal to get these.  Just walk in and ask which ones they have, and you can purchase them solo.  Around here, they're $.99.

Thanks.  I did finally complete the Pokdex back when.  Haven't played Moon in a while.  I really should gather a team for the Battle Tree.

Awesome! I grabbed the "flavored" Wiimotes, and found a Zelda SSB Amiibo! All the prices mentioned were accurate. None were newly tagged, of course.

You have to use the Wii U tablet for some tilt puzzles in Zelda though.  I also use the Pro Controller, and love it...but I do usually dread having to use the tablet for the tilt puzzles.

Is Hyrule Warriors worth getting at this point?  Been thinking about it.  How is it controlling with the main pad?


Hyrule Warriors is very fun. I never play the Dynasty games, and I enjoyed HW.


This battery that people keep mentioning, is this a replacement for the battery in the tablet controller? I'm planning on finally picking up a Wii U over the next few days, so I'm not exactly an expert on the console. I'm trying to figure out if I should be adding a replacement battery to my shopping list.

Battery for the Wii U Gamepad. On Nintendo's online shop. Only place to get it I think. I bought it long ago, and it definitely helps.

Omg I need one of those batteries/chargers due to the mountain of batteries I go through for wiimotes

Eneloop rechargeable batteries are almost certainly a much better investment.  They are excellent.

#13650506 Zelda Breath of the Wild Special/Master Editions, Amiibo- Discussion

Likely not. Its not impressive on its own, its impressive that the standardized Zelda mold we've all become accustomed to has finally been broken and improved upon.


People are just happy to have something refreshing that upends their preconceived expectations of the series.

Did you complete the game already?

Not being snarky.  I'm actually just curious.

Posted by Rig on 02 March 2017 - 07:27 PM

Make sure you take a dozen photos of what you're selling. Make sure you package it extremely well when shipping.
Definitely use a service that provides delivery confirmation (like Priority Mail).

Otherwise, you always run a small risk of a bad buyer. If you make a good listing though, you can usually be okay.

Thanks!  Grabbed two for in-store pickup on the pink Yoshi bundle.  My coworker has been wanting the yarn Yoshi's for his daughter, who just got a Wii U.

Why *wouldn't* you leave feedback once a transaction was completed? Someone had time to complete a transaction, and they can't spare 30 seconds to give someone the feedback they earned?
