Now I've got to figure out how to fake Amiibo scans, since I don't own any, don't plan to buy any and they get you extra loot/armor/horses/etc. in the game.

I've heard there are ways of doing it - guess I'll see if they sell the code generators on eBay cheap.

The Switch has been very available since launch. I can't imagine anyone that wanted one had too much of a problem getting one. I even saw used ones at Gamestop last week so there's definitely no secondary market gouging going on.

Not that i've super looked (or even want one) but still haven't seen a SNES Classic on shelves so that shortage is still real.

Check the usual suspects.. there are nintendo specific RFID "multi-carts" out there that you can use to emulate whatever you want.

I have a few Amiibos but i just get the ones I like the figures on and stick them on the shelf.. I have no interest in opening them or trying to actually use them.

I was thinking about hacks for the amiibos too. I've been playing Skyrim on the Switch and want the zelda gear.

After a brief investigation on the fake Amiibo thing, I'm probably not going to bother with it.

Looks like $30 to $60 for the hardware, and since I'm unlikely to use it on much beyond Breath of the Wild... 'eh, skip it.

Looks kind of complex too, do-able but a pain in the ass.


Been playing more of Breath of the Wild - it's kind of amazing how little the game holds your hand. Particularly for a Nintendo game, which have generally been more aimed at kids. This one though expects that you've both played some Zelda games and some other open-world games and that you can figure things out for yourself.

Early on the guide character wants you to mark 3 "shrines" you can see in the distance on your map. It's slightly confusing because there are maybe a couple way off in the distance that you can still see, but those aren't the ones he's talking about. Once you do it right though... nothing happens. He doesn't tell you "Yes, those are the ones" or anything else - you've just got to then go explore them, and once you've explored all of them, then progress continues.

Similarly you need to get an item to proceed into a cold-weather area - it's not too complex to get, but no map-markers, few hints... I'm not saying that's a bad thing, not at all, just surprising and unexpected. Similarly, you can also come across some enemies who can kill you in one-hit right in the starting area of the game.
