Outside of amiibo, themes are my biggest Nintendo vice these days. Between my North American and Japanese 3DSs, I have about a dozen of ‘em. I swore I was out of the theme game, but then Nintendo and Sega had to pull their greatest collaboration since Bayonetta 2: retro Sega themes. There are two on the eshop, for 200 yen each. Needless to say, I purchased both (and took some pictures to share)!
Theme 1: Hi-Tech Sega
This theme is based on Sega’s legendary Astro City arcade cabinet design. The music is awesome arcade ambiance!
John here with a quick update about the 2014 Nintendo Holiday Mall Experience event happening from now until December 21st at 16 malls throughout the country. My family and I are in Orlando this weekend visiting relatives for Thanksgiving, so I made it a priority to get down to the Florida Mall, one of the event sites, to check it out.
amiibo, Nintendo’s toys-to-life platform launched on Friday and we’re pretty stoked on them! Here are our random thoughts and experiences with the figures so far.
Ryan: My wife Lindsey and I are Loot Crate subscribers, and we’ve been pretty happy with the service so far, so we decided to take the plunge and subscribe to the amiibo Loot Crate. It’s a bit pricier than buying the figures from say, Amazon, but we have faith that the additional bonuses will be cool little collectibles.
Since the first Crate won’t be arriving until probably the middle of next week, I knew I needed to get some amiibo for the weekend. I ordered Marth, Wii Fit Trainer, Link, and Samus (and the Smash guide) from Amazon to tide me over.
