  1. Good day all, This is a topic I've been rolling around in my head since...well since amiibos came out really. I as well as probably most of you am having trouble collecting the amiibos that I have interest in. We all know why; the amiibo 'scarcity'. For a while now I've been looking online for word from Nintendo about their response to many consumers complaints about amiibo 'scarcity'. Needless to say Nintendo is taking a Valve approach to their PR and telling us as little as possible. Recently Nintendo passed 5.7 million amiibos sold worldwide. This is not something that I champion or applaud because of how anti-consumer Nintendo has been with these amiibos to all of us. Some of you might think "well how is it anti-consumer?" As one person put it on the My Nintendo News website, "they are just collectibles". My response which can be found on the same website follows: "They’re anti-consumer because Nintendo is creating a false scarcity to attempt to push sales for products people actually didn't want in the first place. It’s safe to assume many of you want to collect a vast number of amiibos. But unless you’re planning on collecting all of them, there must be a few you've no interest in. However this probably changed when Nintendo announced that certain amiibo would have a limited number released initially. That Wii Fit Trainer basically no one except collectors cared about? Let me guess, some of you didn't give two sh*ts about her. So why are you so interested now? Because she’s rare. Because Nintendo has a ‘limited stock’… because reasons. This is the false scarcity of amiibo products at work. Because these figures are rare, it creates a mad dash for these figures, before they’re ‘sold out’. It doesn't matter what it is, as long as it’s rare, people will go a length to buy it. As we’re seeing these days, wave 3 pre-orders are sold out at least a month before it hit the shelves. The same is going to happen to wave 4, and every other wave (because they’re ‘rare’) until Nintendo actually keeps them in stock at a reasonable number. And this is how it’s anti-consumer. Nintendo has plenty of money to keep amiibo in stock, to keep us from paying scalpers or foreign markets more money then we should have to. But they don’t need to and they don’t want to. Why? Because the false scarcity they've created is making the shelves empty and the pre-orders full, and that’s what matters to them apparently." Something that highlights this for me is the fact that Nintendo isn't responding to any of our complaints or questions (besides Kotaku) but announces to the world when they've sold 5.7 million worldwide. A curious tactic considering most of us are reasonably peeved about their business practices with amiibos yet they want us to pat them on the back for a job well done involving false scarcity. As you're aware, I resent these practices. It may be making Nintendo more money, but it's losing Nintendo their good faith they've earned from their customers; why any company would choose to step on the brakes of the hype train and trade good faith for money I won't understand; and in Nintendo's case, after a poor Wii U release and even the hard core fans starting to leave, the Wii U Renaissance was exactly what they needed and amiibo scarcity threatens to derail it. I look forward to your thoughts on it. (If you've read this far.)
  2. Last year, I did a Top 5 of the Best Nintendo Games of 2013. Now that 2014 is behind us, it’s time we take it up a notch. Since Angry Joe already did a Top 10 Best Games of 2014 based on his experiences, here’s mine and it involves Nintendo. These are the Top 10 Best Nintendo Games of 2014. There’s only one rule here and it’s one game per franchise. Not only that but it can also involve games released on the eShop too. I figure it would be best because well, there are so many games released by Nintendo this year that it’s insane. I really mean that. I’ve played a lot of them. 2014 was Nintendo’s year, hands down. Some were good and others were not so let’s get this show on the road. 10) Azure Striker Gunvolt – Nintendo 3DS We start off the list with a game that has a Mega Man X vibe. It feels like a Mega Man X game but it isn’t. Why? Simple. The gameplay. Sure you can jump, shoot and dash but when you shoot enemies, you tag them and you need to use Gunvolt’s ability to blast them with electricity. Not only is it useful against enemies but it also has other effects such as slowing down your descent, solving puzzles, etc. The story is a bit engaging unfortunately the overseas version took out most of what made it great such as the dialogue and story. It’s a shame really because if they didn’t do that, this would have been more rewarding. But regardless you do get a good game that won’t disappoint. At only $15, you can’t go wrong. The replay value for it is high as you can go back to some levels and try getting a high score. They can net you items, which can help you customize Gunvolt however you like. He also has special skills that can turn the tide of battle. Is it safe to say that it’s similar to the X series? I think that’s the gist of it. But regardless, this game is fun and can really keep you busy for a little while. Rating: 8 out of 10 9) Shantae & The Pirate’s Curse – Nintendo 3DS/Wii U It’s sad that some franchises don’t get much appreciation nowadays. Shantae is a prime example of that and I have to say that it is very good. The latest game of the series takes place after Risky’s Revenge. Now full human, Shantae has to deal with a new evil, the Pirate Master. Risky approaches Shantae and asks for her help in defeating him before he brings despair to all of Sequin Land and its inhabitants. Knowing the risks despite not having genie powers, Shantae teams up with Risky to stop him. This game is ridiculously fun. The gameplay is good and WayForward did a great job making each island seem unique. Of course they decide to take a Metroidvania style route giving players the incentive to look high and low for hidden areas and secrets. Not that it's a bad thing mind you but it just adds more to an otherwise great game. Replay value is very high and its great for people that love to speed run too. You do get rewarded with sweet stuff that makes you want to go at it one more time. For $20, how can you say no? With Half-Genie Hero in development, I know that Shantae has a bright future ahead for sure. Rating: 9 out of 10 8) Mario Kart 8 – Nintendo Wii U What is there to say about Mario Kart? It’s one of Nintendo’s many franchises and it has been around for more than two decades. Now we reach the 8th game and boy did they really deliver. The gameplay is the same as previous games but they also added new features such as Zero Gravity and new items such as the Super Horn, a counter to the threatening Blue Shell, the Boomerang Flower that gives you 3 uses and the Piranha Plant that provides boost while chomping on other opposition. You can’t forget the courses. We get new ones along with some familiar that get the HD treatment. Not only do you have 4-player offline but online with up to 12 players. It’s insane, chaotic and all good fun. You’re probably wondering why this game is so low on the list. The answer’s simple. There are some flaws. For starters, the online battle mode. It’s completely bad and they butchered it severely with some tracks used as battle areas. It ain’t that interesting. Also the online can be problematic because one minute you’re playing a game & the next, you get kicked out. It sucks but a fault that I see it as an inconvenience. Fortunately the game is still fun to play. Oh and there’s a lot of replay value with multiple difficulties and there’s even DLC. I’m not talking about what you normally see with some games. This is DLC done right and it provides you a lot of bonuses and with the release of the Amiibos, they add even more to the game that is worth your purchase. I highly recommend it. Rating: 8 out of 10 7) Shovel Knight – Nintendo 3DS/Wii U and PC (Soon PS4) 2014 should just be referred to as the Year of the Indies. Yacht Club Games should be praised, no, they should be honored for making an amazing indie game. But you’re wondering why I’m adding this on the list cause its no longer console exclusive? Simple. It’s that fun. I love Shovel Knight. It is a love letter to 8-bit games while providing something new, something crisp and something different. There are so many things I like about the game that trying to explain it in this list won’t do it justice. At only $15, it’s a steal. You play as Shovel Knight as you venture through various locations, defeating the forces and minions of the Evil Enchantress. Along the way you acquire items and upgrades that can help give him many advantages. The graphics are nostalgic and the music is simply addicting. I can’t say it enough. Trust me. There’s replay value in this game and I can always boot it up and play it any day. Although it’s on the list, I do want to say that with the announcement of the game going to the PS4, it isn’t going to be Nintendo exclusive. But will it hinder you from enjoying a great experience? Absolutely not! It’s a must buy and I can’t even say it enough. What are you waiting for? GET IT NOW! Rating: 9 out of 10 6) Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – Nintendo Wii U Retro Studios has always delivered when it comes to Nintendo games such as the Metroid Prime trilogy and their Donkey Kong Country Returns series. Their first game was great but hard at the same time. Hell it even got a port on the 3DS. Sure it added some new stuff like New Mode and several helpful items but it’s still tough and will provide you a challenge. Then there was a sequel… and it took everyone by surprise and I love it. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze centers on the Kong family trying to save their home from the Snowmad tribe who claim the island for their own. Now they must trek through six islands all while battling many minions, as they must reach DK Island to send the Snowmad tribe packing. The gameplay is still the same as the last but you have two new characters that join you: Dixie Kong who can help you reach higher places and Cranky Kong whose cane can help you bypass dangerous obstacles. The graphics are beautiful to look at, the music for each island provides variety and the challenge is just as high as the last game. Only difference is that it isn’t giving you an easy way out. It really isn’t. You really got to buckle down and give it your all because there is no mercy. When you mess up like falling into a bottomless pit, it’s your fault. Sure there are six worlds but they make up for it with sections that push your skills to the test. There are also secrets and they require you to look high and low. The result is worth it. I mean it. It is a must buy game that provides challenge and a whole lot of satisfaction. Think you can try your luck getting 200% in the game? Good luck. You’ll need it. Rating: 9 out of 10 5) Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Nintendo 3DS What do you get when you take an archaeologist that loves to solve puzzles and a defense attorney that always finds a way to get their clients’ innocence? You get this game. Layton vs. Ace Attorney is a crossover game that takes both franchises and put them together to have an epic adventure. It centers on the world of Labyrinthia as Layton, Wright and their allies try to discover the secret behind the town. The game takes elements from both games and uses them real well. You have your puzzle solving as well as investigation but the big thing are the trials. Since it centers on witch trials, you’ll have to rely on your wits and finding if the witnesses are hiding anything. Traditional Ace Attorney at its finest although some bits will give you a hard time. If I had any complaints with the game, it’s that the game is more Layton than Ace Attorney. Sure I don’t mind it but it wouldn’t hurt to have a balance. But regardless of this, the game is really fun and the added content is a delight. Take it from me. I played the whole game from start to finish and it was a blast. Rating: 8 out of 10 4) Bravely Default – Nintendo 3DS RPGs and handhelds work hand in hand and that’s a fact. Nintendo’s handhelds have had a fair share of successful role-playing games that will make you spend hours playing. But then comes a game called Bravely Default and it is by far one of the best RPG games around. I am not kidding. It centers on four protagonists: Tiz, Agnes, Edea and Ringabel as they must bring light to four crystals in the world of Luxendarc unaware that their actions may bring about the end of all reality. The game is a successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, having a battle system focusing on the job system from previous Final Fantasy games. One of the main draws is like its name implies. You can either Default and not attack to stock BP or go Brave and attack. But stuff like that come with a price so how you use it is crucial. As for the job system, its similar to Final Fantasy V but has more customization providing a whole lot of possibilities. Trying to explain everything about the game will take forever. So many things I like about the game, it’s crazy. And with the sequel coming this year, the excitement for it has never been this high. I recommend this game if you are a fan of RPG games. You’ll like it. Rating: 9 out of 10 All right… now before I reveal the top 3, I do want to say that this is the most difficult I’ve ever planned. Why? Because these three games are really good and I’ve spent a lot of time with them. I don’t know if this will do anyone justice but remember that it’s my list. You guys are welcome to disagree with me so let’s do it! 3) Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire – Nintendo 3DS You guys wondering why the heck it’s at #3 instead of any higher right? I did enjoy this game and I know many of you will have it at either #2 or #1. But anyway, the hype for this went through the roof. The instant it was first announced, people went nuts. When the game arrived, it delivered. Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes but they are excellent remakes. I love the remakes a lot and they blow Pokemon X & Y out of the water. The game can be easy or hard depending on how you play. Not only that but the post-game provides a lot of extra content and it gives you a huge incentive to complete the Pokedex and give it your all against other trainers. Did I forget to mention Episode Delta? Yeah, that’s included too and it really adds more to the game. What can I say? It’s an amazing remake and I love it a lot! I don’t have any complaints but it was really hard deciding what to choose for the top 3. Either way, you’ll like it. Trust me. Rating: 9 out of 10 Now comes the next one and like I said, very difficult decision to make but I hope that you guys will like it. 2) Bayonetta 2 – Nintendo Wii U What is there to say about Bayonetta 2 that hasn’t already been said? It is one of the best Wii U games to date. Sure there was controversy in regards to its exclusivity but when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. If it weren’t for Nintendo, we wouldn’t get Bayonetta 2. Speaking of which, I love everything about this game. It takes everything that the first game had and makes it ten times better. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is top-notch, and the music is simply addicting and catchy. Moon River Climax Mix and Tomorrow is Mine are music you will love to listen to. Believe me, I know. Oh yeah, speaking of gameplay, the Witch Time is a system you’ll love to use. Not only does it make battles intense but it also gives you an advantage if you want to deliver the beating. Umbran Climax is also entertaining as like Devil Trigger, you get major enhancements. There’s also replay value up the butt with multiple difficulties, online co-op, additional costumes and even the first original Bayonetta. People who got it via physical copy can get the original Bayonetta for free. It’s a steal I mean it. It is one of the best games ever and it makes me wish that it got Game of the Year status instead of Dragon Age Inquisition. If you have a Wii U but not this game, get it… NOW! You will NOT regret it. Rating: 10 out of 10 LEGENDARY And now comes the moment you’re waiting for… 1) Super Smash Bros. 4 – Nintendo 3DS and Wii U This here is obviously a no-brainer why my top game of this year is. But why am I including both 3DS and Wii U versions on it when its one game per franchise. Even though both are the same game, they each provide something that the other doesn’t. Both games do provide you great online play, character customization and over 50 characters to choose from. That’s where the similarities end. But like I said, both games each provide something different. For the 3DS version, it’s Smash Bros. on the go and I love it! Smash Run is exclusive to it and it is a lot of fun. Not only that but for a game like this on the handheld, it’s well done. The only complaint is that for multiplayer, everyone should have their own 3DS. A minor nitpick but what can you do. The Wii U version though… it blows the 3DS version out of the water in terms of graphics, features and everything. There’s so much content here that its crazy. The best part about it is you can have up to 8-player Smash. That’s just INSANE! But when you have a group of friends together for it, it’s all the more rewarding. Smash Wii U also has online and it’s very good. I should also mention about Smash Tour. It’s like Mario Party but it doesn’t seem as good. I don’t know why although it does have some good single-player modes like Event matches. Oh and you can do co-op in both Classic and All-Star mode. That is really awesome. You know, I’m beating a dead horse here on this so let me just sum it up. Super Smash Bros. for both 3DS and Wii U is my top pick as Nintendo Game of 2014. Whether it’s on the go on a handheld or with friends near a Wii U, you will have a hell of a good time. It’s the must buy to anyone who owns a 3DS or Wii U. I mean it. Without a doubt! Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U is my pick for Best Nintendo Game of 2014! Rating: 10 out of 10 LEGENDARY There you go. These are my Top 10 Best Nintendo Games of 2014. If you have any that you feel should be on the list, let me know.
  3. I've been playing a lot out of Hyrule Warriors and I've been loving it. But I was curious on who else would be in the game and what others want in the game, so I made this poll. Whether it's because the character's a badass with bubblegum or the idea of the character fighting hordes of enemies would make anyone laugh, I narrowed down some who aren't in the game but could be the game. Note: Most of these are villains (not many villains are in the game). Also, I know that I met have missed someone so fill free to add your choice in with "other".
  4. Since there is a lot of interest in all things Nintendo we have decided to create a sub forum for all things Nintendo so that you guys can discuss everything regarding Nintendo from software to hardware.
  5. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/01/05/super-mario-64-fans-remaking-the-game-in-hd It's coming to the PC when finished and will be free, this is just fans working on this for the love of it, so that will hopefull keep Nintendo's interent "fuck you! " away from this. They even plan to include multiplayer and maye some stuff from the DS port as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLGMPLmgpv8 Here's AOS's thoughts on the prject, he goes into a bit more detail than the article does. I'm really existed about this. The developer has said this project will be finished because they have "more contributors than they know how to handle", so this appears to be well funded. I just hope they include controller support to make it feel as much like the original as possible.
  6. Well with the recent showcase of the upcoming Zelda WiiU I gotta say, I'm really looking forward to this game when it's finally released, what do you guys think of it so far? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aklpJK0RcTM This is the demo to the game if you haven't seen it yet.
  7. If you enjoy it please be sure to subscribe for more content and help share my work. Thank you for supporting my dream!
  8. Okay so who got Bayonetta 2 today? I did and it's awesome but this game can be really difficult to master especially with the higher difficulties.
  9. Hello fellow AJSA members, just got monster hunter 3 ultimate on my Wii U and wondering if anyone would like to party up and play some time.
  10. The Master Quest DLC Pack, due out 10/16 WW, set to bring Epona, a new adventure map, new scenarios, new costumes, and new weapons. It's gonna run about $14.99 USD. Oh, almost forgot, this is the Master Quest adventure map, so it's harder than the original by restricting healing, item use, and is meant to just be flat out harder. For Dynasty Warriors aficionados I imagine this is gonna be about the same as Chaos difficulty, but who knows. A whole new adventure map for $15 is a real sweet deal. EDIT: Seems you get a new adventure mode map and an optional Master Quest rules it seems.
  11. I. AM. PISSED. Usually when it comes to Nintendo, I love them. I love the Wii U, and I love it's games. I'm usually the first to roll my eyes whenever people start rambling on about how Nintendo sucks or that old bullshit claim that if you like Mario/Zelda games you're an idiot because all Mario/Zelda games are shit because shut up reasons. But today, I'm pissed off at how Nintendo is handling their online store front. Now, I don't have the internet at my house, so for a little over a year my Wii U has gone without updates or downloads of any kind. So when I bought myself a cheap shitty little LAN to USB adaptor so I could steal a friend's internet, two things were on my mind; Update all games, buy Shovel Knight. Sounds easy enough right? Well, that was until I tried to use the eShop. I got my Wii U three or four months after it came out, and back then the eShop seemed fine because there was fuck all games out for the system and very few of it's digital applications were actually out and ready to be downloaded. But now, today, as it is, it's fucking unusable. Now I know that since I'm in Australia, companies love to not bother giving us the shit the rest of the world has (And I'll come back to this) but the fucking console has been out for three years now. Why the fuck can't I find a single digital download indie game? You open up the eShop, and the first thing you see are a bunch of buttons that link to new releases and titles to be released, and then under that some buttons to a couple of indie games, the Virtual Console and then some shit about 'games we can play together' and not one of these buttons is as simple as 'digital games' or 'all games' or 'A-Z'. Y'know, those buttons that XLBA and PSN and Steam and GOG have so we can easily find the games we want instead of trying to dig around the front page desperately trying something that would link to a list with more than 16 games on it. Oh, there's a search bar, but it didn't do much good. Because I found out WHY I couldn't find Shovel Knight no matter what I did. Can you guess why? IT DOESN'T COME OUT IN AUSTRALIA UNTIL NOVEMBER 2014. Yep, told we'd get back to this. Yes, it appears Shovel Knight isn't out in Australia or Europe until some time in November. Now, forgive me for assuming that a game that was released in June in the US was out in Australia at the same time. I mean, it's not like data files have region locks or even that we speak a different language or anything. HOW DARE I ASSUME SUCH MADNESS. Let's just ignore the fact Yacht Club Games have stated that the only reason the only console and handheld they released Shovel Knight on was the Wii U and 3DS was to help those two systems out, I mean why would Nintendo by thankful for that, right? Oh yeah, and another thing? Nintendo's customer service is crap. Nintendo Australia has no email contact option. So unless I want to write a letter like an old man or get ridiculous phone bills out the ass there's no way to actually tell Nintendo how to improve their eShop. Oh, I've emailed the American Nintendo customer service before, but literally every response I've ever gotten starts with "this is the Nintendo of America, we can't help you". I'm not asking for you to redesign your entire online infrastructure, Nintendo. I just want an 'all games' button. And 'all games button! That's all! And for you to stop pretending that Australia is some far off arcane land. Rant over, now sleep.
  12. It comes with improved 3D viewing, utilizing the camera to track you head movements. Improved CPU, has a c-stick, two new shoulder buttons, improved download speeds, NFC support built into the bottom touchscreen, improved browser functionality, and the a,b,x,y buttons have classic Super Famicom colors. Utilizes micro SD instead of large SD. Will be hitting store shelves on October 11th in Japan. Price for standard is 16,000 yen and 18,000 yen for the LL. Roughly $150 and $170, respectively.
  13. Mega Salamence Mega Altaria Mega Lopunny Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino If you purchase Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire their will be a short window near release to obtain a Shiny Beldum as a gift and that Beldum will be holding a Mega Stone. Mega Metagross How do you make one of my all time favorite Pokemon(Slowbro) even more badass? GIVE HIM A MEGA EVOLUTION. He's UNstoppable now! Mega Metagross looks friggin awesome BTW.
  14. Curious why a game is not on the list? It's because it currently has a vague release date of Q3 or Q4 which means absolutely nothing. Confirmed means that, at the very least, a known month of the games release is known. With that out of the way. Here is the list.

Match colored blocks to clear them before they reach the top. 3DS Mario Golf 200 coins| I had fun with it, but ultimately it plays like a GBC golf game would. 3DS Dr. Mario Express 200 coins| Always gotta recommend Dr. Mario. It's fun and addictive and has pick up and play potential. I give the line up a 2 out of 5. While I love Starfox 64 and Super Mario Bros. USA they are ultimately for Wii/Wii U and Wii U only. Starfox requires a pro controller that some Wii U owners may not have and Super Mario Bros. USA is a big turn off to some people. 3DS users kind of get the shaft. 2 puzzle games that are ultimately the same exact concept and Mario Golf. While you can have fun with those games I really can't see them holding your attention for more than an hour or 2. Except Dr. Mario. That shits addicting. *sigh* Nintendo Baseball. On the bright side it seems we get 4 games for both Wii U and 3DS each month now. Silver linings people.
  17. I've looked at it for quite some time, and don't know if it is good enough for the purchase. I've searched YouTube pretty thoroughly and can't find any gameplay videos for Etrian Odessy Untold or IV. So is it good?
  18. The Amiibo Release date has been confirmed to be November 21st the same day as the Smash Bros. Wii U release date. They will be launching with 12 characters: Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth. The second batch of characters will be hitting Europe on December 19th with NoA just stating December and will include, Zelda, Diddy Kong, Luigi, Little Mac, Pit and Captain Falcon. $12.99 price point I'm picking up Marth and probably a few others, but anyone else gonna be picking any of these up even if just for novelties sake?
  19. Honestly, it looks like a good platformer. It has levels with pacing fairly similar to what a person should expect from a Sonic game and it even adds in some more slower, Donkey Kong paced adventure levels which seemed to play fairly well, all things considered. After watching the gameplay do you think the game looks decent as a platformer? Does it live up to your expectations of what a Sonic game should be? Will game reviewers finally judge a Sonic game based on what the game actually offers as opposed to what they feel a Sonic game should offer? I can already see the writing on the November walls. 1,001 reviews headlined with "Sonic Doom".
  20. So I'm sure a lot of people saw the trailer for the upcoming Zelda WiiU, not Hyrule Warriors (although I'm looking forward to that game) and I gotta say I'm really hyped, for the promise of complete exploration like in the early Zelda games and how gorgeous the fields of Hyrule looks, it's probably the best I have seen in a Zelda game to date, but what do you guys think of it and for those of you that don't own a WiiU, will this convince you to get one
  21. It seems to be common practice for game developers to make laughably terrible movie/film licensed games. Nonetheless there are some that deserve to be played and are given a bad name by other games of the type. I personally loved Spiderman 2 for it's gameplay and open world even for the playstation 2. So my question for you all is what are the best movie licensed games?
  22. The Legendary Pokemon that was only available, until recently, through a tie-in movie will now be available at your local gamestop(US) or GAME(UK). This is a rare event type Pokemon, so if you want it I would suggest going there and getting the digital card. Hopefully, you can just walk in and get the card and get little Pre-Order hassle from the employees. The Dates: US: 27th October - 16th November UK: 6th November - 28th November Also, if you want a Shiny Gengar that comes with Gengarite to Mega Evolve it then hit Gamestop or GAME the following dates. The Dates: US: 13th October - 26th October UK: 15th October - 5th November Diancie the Legendary Pokemon: Type: Rock/Fairy

  25. The Distribution of Costumes is as thus: Amazon gets Twilight Princess Gamestop gets Ocarina Best Buy gets Skyward Sword Club Nintendo Registration gets Ganondorf costume like that bad ass Demise inspired one. Or you could not preorder and bank on them being made available to all at some point. Either way, If you're pre-ordering for a specific costume set then that's the list.
