I’m getting a distinct ‘poop hitting the fan’ vibe from this page.

I have acquired Disney Infinity 3.0, which is a dangerous prospect! Specifically it’s the Fall of the Republic starter set and some miscellaneous Star Wars figures. I remember how excited I was for Amiibo when they were announced, and I rode the hype train for a bit, but, wow, just the level of incompetence when it comes to the distribution of those things is staggering! Add to that the fact that Amiibo rarely do anything notable to add to a gaming experience and it’s hard to stay excited about them. In some ways that’s good, because many of them are so hard to get your hands on that it’d be frustrating if they were required for any meaningful content. On the other hand, if there were an Amiibo-specific game, as Disney Infinity is to its figures, I think that would be a pretty strong collector incentive!

Either way, though, falling down the toys-to-game vortex can be an expensive venture. But, uh, Star Wars! When DI 3.0 was announced and they showed off those great looking Star Wars figures,it was as if a million amiibo cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. Sorry, Captain Falcon, with your crotch stick, or yellow pee Link, or Zero Suit Samus and your poor carbonite encased leg, Disney Infinity figures do not have your awkwardly placed support structures! They’re also beautifully consistent in style and design. Oh, and they’re Star Wars (along with any other potential Disney owned property that I love, which is many)!!

Even if the game ends up being a big stinker (which seems unlikely considering the reviews), at least I’ll be able to fill up some of my empty shelf space with little Disney princesses.

    Well, SOMEONE’s doomed. I just haven’t figured out who, yet.

    • Renadt

      A lot of people are.

    • Kid Chaos

      It’s Genchu. Even if he beats Nataku, there’s no way he can fight his way free and make a run for the Senshin lines. And even if he does, I don’t think that Ina & co. are back yet. I doubt that Gen. Tanaka or Lord Maru will recognize him or give him sanctuary.

      This is the perfect time for Genchu to make a quick exit, stage left, and run for the hills. He can hook up with Ken & co. later (after they’ve finished taking their sweet time getting back from the ninja HQ, hint, hint!).

      • Dichu

        Especially since Nataku has plot armor until Ken and/or Yumiko get their revenge on him.

        • Kid Chaos

          Stupid plot armor…grrrr…

          • Dichu

            On the plus side, it’s starting to look like we get to see Ken and Yumiko tag-team fight Nataku.

  • IDPounder

    If we’re breaking out the katanas, it’s safe to assume that this is NOT the general we were looking for.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      He must be in another pagoda.

  • Gigi

    In a general sense, it isn’t exactly all bad. But generally speaking, there might be some confusion on both sides.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Well, I’d hate to talk in generalities.

      • charles81

        Yep, time for some very specific swordsmanship

  • Sunwu

    Gameshow announcer voice: “Oh I’m sorry ambassador but you chose the wrong general!!! But here’s what you could have won; A lasting peace with the Senshin with zero bloodshed, river rights and 5 trading posts of your choice and a life time supply Kadooshy-Os Cereal! Better luck next time on GENCHU’S JAPANESE GAMESHOW!!”

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Genchu’s more of an American Gladiator kind of guy (outside of the ‘American’ aspect).

      • Sunwu

        Genchu on Ninja warrior!

  • Little Kingsguard

    “No.”

    I see Genchu is a fan of understatement.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      He’s just keeping exposition to a minimum.

  • charles81

    The standard DM rule of “Rocks fall. Everybody dies.” is now “Genchu draws is sword”

    Peace and diplomacy are over, time to kill everyone, dump the bodies and destroy the cargo.

    However, my suspicions are that he’ll soon find out the good general is also there, or that they are at war already. Either revelation could change things.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Oh you and your suspicions!

  • Astralfury

    Someone wishes he had taken Nataku’s trigger finger instead right now.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      I mean there are just so many fingers, it was hard to decide at the time!

      • Flaming Squirrel

        Do the Isildur thing and cut them all off at once!

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/WeirdButCuteByGwyn?ref=hdr_shop_menu Neska

    The friendly fisherman is getting out a fancy sword . . . no, Mr. Hindu Guru, Nataku is NOT the right General . . . not unless you want the country torn apart with fire and bloodshed, then he’s totally your guy!

  • Minando

    Hey, stop ! What are you doing ?
    What does it look like ? I´m going to cut my fingernails, of course.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      “Personal hygiene is very important to me!”

      • Unhooked

        This sword is forged from fine steel, folded a hundred times and a hundred times again. It is stronger than any other and sharp enough to cut through any metal or man. It is without a doubt the strongest sword in all of Japan…

        I use it for my 6 o’clock shave.”

  • Xinef

    He’s just going to add the swords to the gifts for general Nataku, because everyone loves gifts, but just a crateful of guns is boring.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Throw in two droids and maybe the illustrious Nataku will listen to their pleas, if any of them wish to beg for mercy, that is.

      • Xinef

        Nataku: “But those aren’t the droids I’m looking for!”

  • KungFuKlobber

    Not-a cool.

  • TheMaskedFerret

    Genchu – because we don’t want Ina & Crew bringing swords to a gunfight.

  • Piramid

    Pls dont notice the sword…>^<

  • Flaming Squirrel

    I don’t see what everyone has against Nataku. Sure he’s a murderous warmongering psychopath, but so is Ken, and nobody holds that against him! If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s double standards. Maybe if the good general got drunk, then we’d see him more as a human being.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Hey now, Ken’s a homicidal maniac with a heart of gold!

      • Flaming Squirrel

        This guy gets it! We need to take a stand against this social injustice. How does this sound?

        *ahem*

        People are people, no matter how many people they’ve killed, and they deserve to be treated like people! So what if Ken’s killed a few innocent civilians? Have you ever stepped on a bug? If so, then who are you to talk down to Ken? He’s been through more than you could ever imagine. And as for Nataku’s murdering an entire clan… did you know that you murder thousands of millions of innocent germs every time you apply Germ X to your hands? Yeah, not so pure and holy anymore, are you? It’s time to end the hate and stop the hypocrisy. Just remember what Jesus always said- judge not, lest ye be cut in half and your head stuck on a pike.

    • Xinef

      That’s because holding anything against Ken would result in being KADOOSHED, while Nataku does not seem (yet) able to punish readers for their thoughts.

  • Da’Zlein

    You can tell from the sword that the party about to begin

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      There was a bit of confusion when they brought all these guns to a sword fight, but everyone’s working it out now.

  • Hfar

    And now it is time for “aggressive negotiations.” Yes, I used an Attack of the Clones reference. Please don’t hurt me.

    • Idunyken

      *Pats hfar* :) “The negotiations never took place”

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      It’s okay, I still frequently quote Palpatine’s “Wipe them out, all of them.” from Phantom Menace. The films have scarred us for life.

      • KungFuKlobber

        I prefer to quote the Space Janitors version of that line: “Hey, do me a solid. Kill these bozos for sure!”

    • Cross Ikon

      Is it bad if the only prequel I didn’t like was Phantom? Attack of the Clones was a lot of badass CGI and left the EU more open-ended for books (yay!), and Revenge was pretty awesome.
