I did it. I bought an amiibo. And then five days later, I bought another one. I know amiibo are overpriced and unnecessary, but I just couldn’t resist seeing what all the fuss was about. I don’t actually have a Wii U (yet), nor do I have a New Nintendo 3DS (yet), nor do I have the NFC reader (does that even exist outside of Japan yet?), so I can’t give a full review of the amiibo and their functionality.
You may notice that the site has been somewhat dormant recently. This is in part due to the fact that I have moved to Singapore. There are many downsides to being a gamer in Singapore: Games are really expensive and things come from all sorts of regions and release dates aren’t always clear. Finding amiibo isn’t one of those downsides. I have to clarify that amiibo are actually quite a lot more expensive here, but it certainly is easier to find “rare” amiibo here than in the States or Canada, due to the sheer amount of video game stores in any given area and the lack of retail exclusivity.
