I care. I really liked Disney Infinity. Haven't bought any of the 3.0 stuff, but I was planning to when I could afford it. Those were the nicest Disney figures I've ever seen. But I guess I was way more into it for those than I was for the actual game...
- Disney Infinity will end this year due to declining sales. As the "toy to life" genre has been getting overcrowded (Skylanders, amiibo, LEGO Dimensions) and having a downturn in sales.
Maybe I'm just not knowledgeable enough, but I've never heard of any other toy-coming-to-life products besides these. Are they serious about this market being overcrowded? And all these while Nintendo is still singing praises to amiibo being popular?
The big problem Disney had, was that there is so much merchandise for their characters already it made the line not as desirable as it could be. With amiibo, a lot of the characters only have an amiibo as an option, so they become desirable by default.
I'm a bit bummed, It sounded like they were ironing out licensing issues with the Marvel and Star Wars properties before the axe swung. It had such potential to replace every lame licensed game they have to shove out the door.
The Infinity toys were of incredibly high quality too.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
