dsc_1749

The latest range of Animal Crossing amiibo arrived in March to the party that no one else wanted to attend, Animal Crossing amiibo Festival. Rolling dices on a television with no sight of mini games to break the flow just doesn’t make for rowdy Friday night gatherings, it’s more of a peaceful Sunday afternoon sort of thing. But these animals don’t care, they love to party all the same. It was never about you.  Continue reading

Blathers, Celeste, Kicks, Resetti Animal Crossing Collection Amiibo

Some people say these amiibo are the amiibo that killed the amiibo train. With so many Animal Crossing figures available for a game which nobody really wanted, Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival, the desire to collect them all was pushed firmly into a ditch.

dsc_1718

R.O.B (robotic operating buddy) was the robot that helped bring the Nintendo Entertainment System into so many homes throughout the USA back in the 80’s. Its/his/her (we’ll stick to he, for he is a Rob) purpose was to make the NES feel like a toy, rather than a game system, and his inclusion propelled sales into the stratosphere, for who doesn’t want a robotic operating buddy. To some, he was the only buddy they had.  Continue reading
