Except for the Twilight Bow, how is it unfair for non-amiibo owners when everything amiibo owners get is identical or inferior to what's already in the game?

Why shouldn't you be punished for not playing previous entries/consoles? When I fell behind in my playing, I was punished, severely! So I got with the program and started playing all the previous entries/consoles to atone for my past transgressions against Nintendo.

Amiibos definitely aren't for children to play with. Their collectibles. And toys aren't even just for children.

There's room for an argument to be made about Wolf Link, which requires not just that you buy the toy, not just that you buy another game, but that you buy an entirely different console.

1) Saying "They are punishing me" is arrogant, entitled and incorrect. Those who chose to collect amiibo (i.e. support Nintendo) were rewarded with bonuses for doing so.

2) The content in the amiibo is equal or worse than any content in the game itself, meaning there is nothing to be missed gameplay-wise. You are missing out on aesthetics, nothing more. Even the Twilight bow is BARELY a step up from the Phrenic Bow.

3) If you don't want to buy the amiibo, there are dozens of people selling NFC chips. You can get an action replay spoof device. Hell, if you have an android phone you could buy some NFC chips and make some yourself.

Argument went out the window in January when they released Wolf Link in solo packaging. Having 20 hearts isn't necessary.

Totally agree with you here. But....

Even the Twilight bow is BARELY a step up from the Phrenic Bow.


No. Phrenic Bow has an attack power of 10 with 40 range. Twilight Bow is at 30 with 8,000 range. Have you gotten the Twilight Bow yet? It's f***ing awesome. No other bow in the game, aside from the Light Bow, compares to it.

Yep. I don't have any amiibo, the last Nintendo console I owned before the Switch was the Nintendo 64and yet I really don't think I could say I am being punished by not using amiibos.

I'm missing wolf Link and a few nice armor sets, that's all.

Pretty pathetic to force your playerbase to buy dolls to get content in a game you paid 60$ AND A season PASS for, but even dumber are the kids willing to buy said dolls in such great quantity as to make them a staple in all Nintendo games. Who's to blame, the greedy ones or the enablers?

Same as the microtransaction hell most MP games are being reduced to by greedy ps4/xb1 publishers. At least Amiibos are a cool shelf decoration for your kids. You can spend 100$ on cod points and get nothing but duplicates of digital paintjobs you already owned. This is 100% legal. Nintendo is the lesser of the two evils, but give them time, they're always a few years behind.

Go buy 20 NFC tags for less than a single amiibo's MRSP and use that as amiibos. And go be a whiny brat somewhere else. It's one thing to point out business practices, bad or not, and another to act like an entitled, spoiled brat who thinks world owes them something for being a self-claimed god's gift to this world.

Also, an educated customer would know that there is amiibo-exclusive content, so if you are one, I hereby point you to my sig. If not, then
go be a whiny brat somewhere else.

"Waaah, I want stuff that other people pay to get for free!" ego-focused posts are not a way to spawn proper discussion. Keeping it so personal is what makes it impossible to take TC seriously.

I mean, only a developmentally disabled child would fail to see TC and my own's entire point is that nobody should be forced to buy dolls to acquire 100% of a games content. That content's details are irrelevant. A poor business model is a poor business model.

I guess its possible that you are a taxpaying adult who owns a s***load of said dolls, and are embarrassed and furious at being insulted about them, in which case your anger clouding your reading comprehension would be understandable.

Except the rest of the content you get isn't stuff you need. And to be honest, it's better than paying money for DLC costumes. At least with these, you might have already had them before the game came out. The good thing about Amiibos is they usually work on many, many games.

Seems more of a reward/thank you by Nintendo for fans/collectors who have stuck with Nintendo by buying their Amiibos.

Most of the good stuff are from Amiibos that were released earlier.
For Example: Twilight Bow - SMB Zelda Amiibo, released on Dec 2014

The newer amiibos(Archer Link, guardians etc) generally give quite generic items that you can find in the game without the amiibos.

Who said it's unfair to me alone? I never said it was unfair at all, only a s***ty practice for obvious reasons. When did i say it should be free? You're obviously mad as f***, making up things and putting words in my mouth.

Amiibo are not stupid and pointless. There are many people who like like colectables. They exist for nearly every Franchise. There are a lot of figurines of video game characters. Amiibo are just that. Figurines of video game characters. They just give an additional bonus. You don't buy them for the bonus (which is nearly allways inferior to the in game items) but you buy them for the figurine.
maymod 1 week ago#47
I think some people are missing the point amiibos could be classed as toys/collectables or whatever anyone wants it to be. The issue is why lock content behind this why could in game items not be obtainable without the amiibos.
Those who see it as a reward after buying it can say this. Similarly those who see a paywall can also say this. Matter of opinion really.

Well the key question is the line in the middle really and IMHO i do think its ridiculous to buy an amiibo to unlock game content. If it is a collectable then is that not the reward in itself. Or if it is a toy and be played with is that not a reward in itself.
Collectables could also be "dont remove from box" but clearly you will have to for the NFC. Toys i mean did you not play with your toys for fun and not to unlock any game content because it never really did that.

Wolf Link. The only useful to me. It was okay, had to pay 30€ for it and have a lot fun with it though he only has three hearts :] 
The other stuff isn't necessary, okay, the Twilight Bow sounds nice but you don't need it. 
The classic Link Tunics I don't even like. And there is the Tunic of the Wild, that's enough for me. 
If you really want that kind of content then buy the amiibo -_- After a while even this game will become boring and you won't care so whatever :D

    Thats absolute nonsense. The Twilight Bow has by absolute far the best range. Its only "rival" is the Bow of Light, which also has a range far beyond any other bow in the game. But even the Bow of Light has only 1/16th of the range the Twilight Bow has.

    Providing this part of the player guide is accurate, the Phrenic Bow has a range of 40. That is literally 200 times inferior to the Twilight Bow.

    With regard to the actual topic, there is no such thing as "fair" and "unfair". The true question is, does Nintendo get away with it? That, I doubt. Amiibos sell unbelievably well, but is it truly the content that is the selling point of the amiibos? Does that extra content truly convince so many people to purchase an overpriced figurine just to get it? The absolute extreme fans, of course. But I'm talking about those who wouldn't have bought those amiibos hadn't it been for that content. Do those truly come in such a high quantity? I severely doubt there are too many of those. Question here is, did this content go to waste? Would it have generated a higher profit by offering it as separate DLC? Or part of the DLC pack to boost the season pass sales? I mean yes, those who specifically purchase an amiibo for the content and wouldn't have if it didn't deliver it each pay an extremely high sum for it. But the higher the price range, the lower the amount of actual customers. I sincerely doubt attaching that additional content to amiibos could have made more profit than offering each of it as 2-5$ DLC or adding it as a Season Pass addition. Actually I'm quite sure if they used the amiibo content as Season Pass bonus instead of three completely useless items, the Season Pass would have had a much better start.

    no **** amiibos imo are the stupidest and most anti consumer form of dlc ever its imo even worse then on disc dlc and really the reason why is nintendos attitude of releasing most of their products in such low quantities that they become almost impossible to get at a reasonable price imo content locked behind amiibos should also be available as actual dlc

    i do not get or support amiibos for that very simple fact people are always talking about which dlc is the worst and imo its ******* amiibos

    Unfair? Excuse me, but you're talking about is a toy for a video game. Both of which are things which by any standards are luxury or recreational consumer items that you have been marketed against in order to elicit this exact reaction. 

    Be very aware that any negative feelings you have towards this issue come from a place of jealously, addiction to new content (that you wouldn't use anyways), and simple entitlement. 

    You are entitled to nothing. Spend the money, or learn to live without.
    At first I didn't mind Amiibo, but now I'm sick of them. I wouldn't mind if you could actually use them without opening them, but now I just want them to die off.

    Unfair? Excuse me, but you're talking about is a toy for a video game. Both of which are things which by any standards are luxury or recreational consumer items that you have been marketed against in order to elicit this exact reaction. 

    Be very aware that any negative feelings you have towards this issue come from a place of jealously, addiction to new content (that you wouldn't use anyways), and simple entitlement. 

    You are entitled to nothing. Spend the money, or learn to live without.

    Really, though, it's ridiculous that only a select few could have access to one of the best bows in the game. There's only a finite number of 'Miibos available, but if they're going to go down the DLC route then I hope to see some of the exclusive features available. I'd support that much at least.

    Some good points. This is why digital DLC is more player-centric, and supported more widely. Amiibo's are profit-centric. After all, Nintendo can hardly over-produce and end up sitting on a mountain of devalueing merchandise.

    This, and the continued varied versions of it, is the single worst argument I've ever seen. "I paid money! They owe me!"

    You paid $60 (+20 if you got season pass) for a game that has a hundred hours or more of gameplay, which includes HUNDREDS of items to collect and MORE gameplay coming throughout the year. Whining that "you didn't get your moneys worth" because you didn't get a handful of aesthetically different outfits and weapons is pretty pathetic.

    I can see why some would find it a little crummy since a lot of the costumes are really cool, but it is mitigated by those costumes not having unique properties and also being relatively difficult to upgrade. The special weapons are all pretty much a visual novelty as well save for the Twilight Bow (and while cool, its extra range mostly amounts to a novelty as well considering bows like the Ancient Bow still have a lot of range).

    And if you really want that content but don't want to support amiibos (or scalpers), there are relatively cheap alternatives.

    While I think people exaggerate how much this content actually adds to the game. The fact is that this content is IN the game already and only unlocked by using a cheap often poor quality plastic statue to unlock, hell I'd take even an option for a standard dlc pack as scummy as that would be instead of relying on potential stocking issues and limited quantity. Though that issue is another whole thing altogether. The game already has one unlockable other Link outfit, why not more?

    This is just common practice now in the game world thanks to people like these below. We now even have to pay to play online on consoles but why? It makes no sense because when you play online you're connecting to servers that are being run and maintained by the publisher of said game using the money you used to pay for the game itself! So why exactly are Sony or Microsoft blocking that access for a game you already paid for behind a pay wall? Oh yeah, because of people like the ones below.........

I could also care less about the little unlockables that they provide in Zelda or any other game.

      What bothers me is that Nintendo won't restock them and so if I want them, I have to pay up to $70 online for a single amiibo, because it hasn't been in stock for four years or so.

      It's very frustrating.

      the outfits doesn't really have that much gains compared to ingame things, Epona might be the outlier. if anything, the only game that forces amiibo is Chibi-Robo if only because if you don't have his amiibo then you lose out on the figure mode and a extra world. but in all honesty, the outrage behind Zip-Lash was just because it was seen as a cheap cash-in that was average at best, compare it to just about every Yoshi game that gets compared to Island.

      God forbid how Hey Pikmin would fare in comparison, since now since they mentioned that Arzest are the developers. who made Yoshi's New Island, Arzest descended from Artoon developers (Yoshi's Island DS, Universal Gravitation) kinda surprised they didn't farm it out to Nd Cube for some amiibo hike spinoff like Amiibo Festival or the newer Mario Parties.

      Just buy a Power Saves for Amiibo from Game Stop.

      Takes a few seconds to change the amiibo on the power disk, but you have access to all amiibos, including the unreleased ones and their content, all for a fraction of the price you'd pay (plus way less storage space issues) if you actually bought all the Zelda amiibos.

      Kind of a weird mindset honestly. When I see people in Mario Kart with amiibo stuff, I don't really think anything. Seems kind of weird to laugh at them for buying something they wanted. Someone else could easily see you playing Mario Kart and laugh at you for wasting your time and money of dumb video games. Still just as pointless.

      I guess its possible that you are a taxpaying adult who owns a s***load of said dolls, and are embarrassed and furious at being insulted about them, in which case your anger clouding your reading comprehension would be understandable.

      I own precisely zero amiibos. I don't consider them worth their price, especially after scalper "tax". However, I don't go to online boards to whine about how it's so unfair to me and I should be given stuff for free because I have it so hard in life.

      When did i EVER say anything about how hard my life is? Are you seriously that deranged? Or just lonely? Lmao I'm done responding to you, I learned long ago its pointless trying to argue with people who ignore reality. Doll collecting is obviously a touchy subject around here, lmao

      I was referring to TC, you dumbass.


      You said it directly to me!! After quoting me and only me! Don't try to retcon the canon of this thread, Dumbass!
      If it was just cosmetics, then I'd say "meh" and not care, but there's some REALLY nice exclusives locked up behind really obscure and now very expensive amiibos, such as the Twilight Bow, Wolf Link, and Epona.

      +1 i sold botw after 2 weeks anyway but man thats just wack!

      And to the people bragging about how they can afford them, thats completely beside the point. You have to buy dolls. To unlock all the content. 

      You have to buy dolls. Period. Case closed. Being a self sufficient adult makes it 10x as embarrassing.

      Except for the Twilight Bow, how is it unfair for non-amiibo owners when everything amiibo owners get is identical or inferior to what's already in the game?


      I agree with the TC. It's ridiculous that Epona is locked behind an amiibo. It's irrelevant whether you think the other content matches the locked ones. Epona is the best horse in the game and cannot be gotten without spending money on a toy.

      Epona is one of the most essential reoccurring "characters" in the Zelda series and it's locked behind an insane paywall.

      There are horses as fast as Epona with more stamina. Hell, I just got a horse that's actually FASTER than Epona. Not to mention she's not really apart of the story in anyway. Don't worry, you're not really missing out if you don't have Epona.
      Holy f***ing s***! You guys amaze the f*** out of me sometimes. When you b**** about having to pay more for DLCs, or amiibos, you're, literally, saying that the game itself wasn't worth the cost you paid. EVERYTHING that comes from a DLC or an amiibo, is EXTRA. It's added content. How is this so hard to understand? 

      I get it. "It's already in the game. Why do I need to pay more to get it?" Maybe because ITS f***ING EXTRA CONTENT! It doesn't matter if it's already in there, "locked behind a paywall". Do none of you, that are b****ing, understand the concept of Basic f***ing Business Practices 101 and How To Make A f***ing Profit So You Can CONTINUE To Deliver Cutting Edge Technology That People Want 104? 

      Seriously. When you complain about EXTRA CONTENT; you are saying that the game is not good enough. You're saying that the game is not worth the $60 price tag, that you paid for it. Ask yourself, honestly, "Would I have bought this game, and been happy with what I got, if there was no such thing as amiibos and DLCs?". If your answer is no; then your issue is with the game itself and you would probably not play it for hours on end, and your b****ing is completely moot. If your answer is; "Yes, I would definitely be more than happy with it because this game is f***ing awesome!", then you're only hindering your own gaming experience by jading yourself. If you need the s*** you get from the DLCs and amiibos to enjoy the game then maybe this isn't the game for you? Maybe try a different game that's more to your standards? Personally, I'd struggle to find something more enjoyable myself, but I, admittedly, am not a fan of other types of games. I can't relate to anyone else's Love of Call of Duty or Halo or any first person shooter games, or the Elder Scrolls series(although, that's probably primarily because the only RPGs I've played were FFVII, Mario RPG, and Kingdom Hearts. Also, I know the more current Elder Scrolls, like Skyrim, aren't the typical RPGs, I feel like I can't get into them without doing the games in order, and I just don't have the time or energy to sit through the completely lackluster graphics of games that I've never played. Games like Zelda and Tomb Raider, I grew up on. They evolved with me. Or, more accurately, I Evolved with them.) . I just can't get into them. I can, however, get into any and all Zelda games. Zelda and Tomb Raider are my go to's. Maybe I'm biased, but I spent $400 just to play the base BotW that you can get, before I got into amiibos or DLCs and I have no regrets about it. I GLADLY spent the $20 on the season pass, as well as all the money I spent on amiibos because they're EXTRA CONTENT for a game I already Loved. I could never even imagine complaining about not having that EXTRA CONTENT already installed in a game that I already Love without it. 

      Maybe, if you find yourself complaining about having to pay more money for DLCs or amiibos, just do yourself a favor and ignore their existence. As I mentioned before; If they didn't exist, you wouldn't get pissed off that you have to pay for them. Validation for my theory lies in the fact that they never existed for other Zelda games. The same games that all of you Love and cherish. The same games that the base BotW, without DLCs or amiibos, is arguably a vast improvement on.

      *Continued on next post*
      Furthermore; the fact that some of you will, SO f***ING BELLIGERENTLY, complain about not getting the EXTRA content, also complain about the game being too easy(to the point where you create insane, yet commendable, Challenges to make it harder) boggles my mind even more! What the f*** do you want? You guys are doing the entire game with no armor, picking nothing up, but you're now complaining that you have to spend money to get some extra gear that you will ignore? Will NOTHING make you happy? Will you continue to complain regardless of what you get? Are you REALLY complaining about "corporations taking advantage of the little guy"? By protesting a product that you have absolute control over whether or not you buy it? These are the Real questions you need to ask yourself. And you Need to be open minded when answering them, for yourselves.

      This rant is very likely stupid. It IS all EXTRA content. None of it came with the game. Hence, EXTRA content. If you truly find the game lacking without the EXTRA content, then; 1. You just don't like this game, which: To each, their own. And B. Why are you even on this Board if you don't like the game? 

      Epona is an iconic Zelda character? How many games has she been in exactly? How many Zelda games have we had exactly? Epona adds absolutely nothing to the gameplay experience of Breath of the Wild. She was great in OoT and MM because she was the only horse you could get. Why, exactly, do you NEED Epona in BotW when there are countless other horses that you can obtain from the WILD(hence the name of the game)? Would it have been nice to find a horse in the game that looks like Epona? Sure, absolutely. It would have been a nice throwback for the players that started the franchise with Ocarina. But that wasn't the case. Before we found out she was unlockable with amiibos did you hate the game? Of course you didn't. Because there's hundreds of horses now, that you get to take your pick of, and you could name any one of them Epona if you so choose. The Epona you get from the amiibos isn't even comparably better than a lot of the horses you can get in game without buying EXTRA s***. I have 2 of her and yet I still choose the Big Horse or one of my other horses with better stats over her when I take one out of the stable. It's nice having Epona, because of the nostalgia aspect, but if she wasn't an option it wouldn't affect my enjoyment of the game, at all. 

      You're really gonna use the lack of Epona in a game with comparable, innumerable horses as your defense, and tell me I'm arguing just for the sake of argument? Think about that for a second.

        None of the content from amiibo has any organic placement in this game. The tunics, weapons and gear are from all over the series' legacy and make no sense for them to be obtainable in the game other than the way they are (as extras). Aside from that, the stuff you get is nothing you cannot obtain within the game in some way or another, being a weapon or armor that does the same or even better. Some say the only weapon that doesn't have an equivalent in-game is the Twilight Bow, but actually the Bow of Light you get at the end of the game is basically the same, but infinite, and with some methods you can actually use it outside of the final battle.

        This, I cannot fathom why people are so eager to defend Nintendo's BS on this issue and your arguments don't even work. It makes no logical sense to lock content behind amiibos other than greed.

        My only gripe is the twilight bow being far and away the best utility bow you can get. Even then not really that, but the fact the amiibo it's attached to is relatively old for amiibos and is probably a tad pricey now. 

        None of the armors are worth the money, none of the BotW amiibos even give you special things iirc.

        There's nothing remotely resembling "entitlement" about it. Personally, I have no problem with DLC content, though I agree with the sentiment where amiibo is concerned. Why should new gamers be locked out of content in a game they love simply because Nintendo locks it behind a physical item you have to buy only to restrict the supply of said item to the point where people who want it will most likely never be able to get it, since scalpers will buy them all up and resell them for ridiculous prices?

        Give me the option to buy a $15 DLC pack containing the amiibo content and I will happily give Nintendo my money.

        I understand your thought process here, but it suffers from the same lack of perspective that the TC's does. Seeing this as "punishing people who bought the game" is entirely illogical, as opposed to "rewarding those who bought amiibos previously".

        If this were "punishing people who bought the game", content from amiibo would be OP and look amazing. (most are just equal or worse that content already in the game and offers very little aesthetic difference) This is more akin to a "loyalty program". Several businesses have done them for years. You can go to the grocery store, electronics store, gas station, etc and they will have a program that gets you discounts and incentives for buying products at their store. The fact that collectors and resellers latched onto the market and started gouging prices is neither Nintendo's fault, nor is it their responsibility to "fix". They sold Amiibos as a limited shelf time collectible item. Most of the ones being sold high right now have been out for 1-2 years and were shelf-warming prior to BotW. Nintendo's aim is to reward and keep their loyal customers. So as a twofold measure A) they release items that are exclusive on items that those loyal customers bought (but not specifically necessary or better items) and B) they would likely anger those loyal customers if they released a second printing because that destroys the collectible value.

        The claims of "entitlement" come from the assumption that people "paid for the game, but can't get the amiibo content". Essentially they believe that all the content that was IN the game wasn't worth the $60 they paid for it and the small pittance that they could get from amiibo somehow invalidates the value of the game, which is a bit of an overdramatization but not as much as you'd think.

        Really the only legitimate complaints would be that Nintendo did not simultaneously re-release the older Zelda amibos and that the full power wolf link is locked behind content from a game other than BotW (which if you only have a switch you cannot get).
