It's spawing from all kinds of content lock you can imagine already, and now it has gone so far as to take an ability Kirby already had on other games and just lock it away from people without the new amiibo for the new Kirby game, fucking locking an ability away from you if you do not buy a physical toy for $13, that if you are playing with a N3DS, because if you have a 3DS you'll also have to pay more for a separated accessory to make the amiibo work on it.
Seriously, how can this complete shit practice Nintendo has been pulling on you guys have been so widely successful? That's the very worst kind of DLC/content lock to ever happen, locking you from things in your game behind a physical object (which even has stock issues to make it worse for you to even be able to get that content) that you have to pay A LOT for, seriously, if you have a 3DS and want that UFO ability you already had prior also in this new game you have to cash in another $13 for a toy plus $25 or so for an adapter if you still didn't got it, that's from $13 to almost $40 bucks to get access to a freaking ability Kirby has already had, that's as high as the price of a brand new game not so long after launch, for a freaking ability ripped away from the game just to scam you!
Amiibo is a cancer to the gaming industry, a fucking big and ugly tumor, and I can't believe I see people talking others are overreacting when we are actually underreacting, but keep letting it go, "it's not much" afterall, right?
I'm afraid of what'll come for the new Pokemon games, amiibos locking some Pokemon behind it? Maybe the Legendaries? A new Pokemon type only available by amiibo? Get you amiibo to unlock access to the league!? I can't wait!
It'll only keep growing to the worst kinds of locks as soon as you keep supporting this shit, open your eyes.
Fucking awesome, just awesome.
