Comic 33: Sudden Amiibo Sales

So some of you might have heard about the guy who preordered tons of Rosalina amiibos just because he hates the character and doesn't want her fans to be happy. Of course, buying tons of the stuff you hate isn't exactly the best way to show your disapproval...

(Also, I've heard the recent news that all of this was just a troll act he kept up for years. Doesn't make the situation less ridiculous.)

Sic semper troll.

This definitely makes me chuckle. :)

I'm glad to hear :D Yup, this would be the more likely result from buying tons of stuff you hate...

Wait a minute, the year of Luigi isn't over yet, and it isn't about to end anytime soon. Rosalina will have to wait. Weegee power!

by Zanreo at 17th Jan 2015, 5:16 AM

Yeah, that's true... Looks like they'll have to fight for that title now!

Lets make it the Year of the Rosaligee....erp, that sounded a lot better in my head, but anyway, why must they fight, Rosalina isn't like Mario, they can SHARE.

Personally I'd love a Year of Waluigi

Now there's a character who deserves some more attention

by TheMario360 at 17th Jan 2015, 4:59 AM

Yeah, Not exactly the best move, guy.

by Zanreo at 17th Jan 2015, 5:20 AM

Haha, no... Not the best way to show you dislike something

Nice comic, It's made me laugh a few times. The characters are so vibrant and it's an interesting look at the game industry.

by Zanreo at 18th Jan 2015, 10:37 PM

Thanks! :D

I had to look up what an amiibo was. I now feel like an old fart. Pretty funny stuff, though! This would indeed be the reaction of any corporation, though. Hate? Love? Who cares!? They're selling!

by Zanreo at 19th Jan 2015, 2:49 AM

Exactly, companies would only see the profits and what pays off

Funny comic, keep up the good work.

I didnt post on your latest page cause i didnt want to interupt any Q&A stuff.

by Zanreo at 28th Jan 2015, 1:16 PM

(That's fine!)

Thanks! :D

See, I'm too old to know who Roslina is. I thought it was still the year of Mario.

by Zanreo at 7th Mar 2015, 12:06 AM

Well, Year of Mario is really pretty much every year, except for during Year of Luigi of 2013

by Respheal at 10th Aug 2016, 2:00 PM

Sounds to me that the dude was actually a hardcore Rosalina fan and wanted to keep that under wraps. "Nooooo these aren't for me!"

by Zanreo at 10th Aug 2016, 9:10 PM

"I-it's not like I like Rosalina or anything baka"

And this, friends, is why you have to vote with your wallets.

If you don’t like something in a game or what the publisher and/or developer is doing, DON’T BUY IT!

by Zanreo at 27th Dec 2017, 5:12 AM

Certainly not the way to show your disapproval for something
