Friday Favorites: Places to Buy Games

Double Jump Kris MiiYou know what I want? A thrift store that sells old video games from way-back-when at decent prices. I would so become a regular and probably not see much of my paycheck.

However, since a place like that does not exist near me, I do have a few favorite places to go whenever I need a new video game to play.

Toys R Us

Toys R Us was the number one toy shop for us when we were kids. Nowadays, we tend to go straight to the electronics section, of course, where we usually have a decent selection of video games to sift through. They also usually have a massive section for amiibos, so if we ever need to get our amiibo fix, Toys R Us is the place.

Amazon

Who doesn’t love Amazon? With the quick shipping and the mostly-painless clicking method of purchasing, Amazon is great when it comes to buying our new games. The boxes get delivered right to your door and it’s like coming home to a present after a long day of work!

GameStop

Most people tend to have a love-hate relationship with GameStop, as far as I hear. I know they tend to make the most profit off of selling used games and can be a bit loud when it comes to their rewards program, but the couple of GameStop stores around me tend to be pretty good. They’ve got great selections, and Rachel and I feel comfortable talking with the sales associates whenever we have questions about anything. Most of the associates at the stores we frequent are very knowledgeable and, when you have an expensive hobby like gaming, it’s fantastic!

Friday Favorites: Amiibo Wishes

Double Jump Kris MiiIt’s Friday!

Nintendo unveiled a set of four brand-new The Legend of Zelda themed amiibos, and I think they’re looking pretty cool, especially the Ocarina of Time Link!. In all honesty, Rachel and I don’t do much with the amiibos (we only have a handful of them), but we figured we would try buying each other a new one for our birthdays to slowly grow our little collection. Below is a list of amiibos that I would like one day, whether they be real or imaginary at this point in time.


On that note, yesterday was Rachel’s birthday, if you wanted to show her a little extra love! 🙂

5. Dixie Kong

We need to celebrate more female characters, and Dixie was a star in her own right. With her unique abilities in the Donkey Kong franchise, I believe she should get her own amiibo.

4. Knuckles

Knuckles was always a great character in the Sonic the Hedgehog games, and I would love an old-school looking Knuckles (none of that Sonic Boom nonsense) amiibo.

3. Professor Layton

Rachel and I were introduced to Professor Layton when we gave the crossover Ace Attorney and Professor Layton game a go. His gentleman demeanor, smarts, and ability to kick ass definitely made him a favorite!

2. Grovyle

With all the Pokemon amiibos out there, I would selfishly like one of my favorite, Grovyle.

1. Geno

Considering this character isn’t owned by Nintendo and that he hasn’t resurfaced in any other game other than Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (aside from a brief cameo in a Mario & Luigi game), having an amiibo with Geno is extremely unlikely. But, hey, he was one of my first favorite video game characters. I would love any kind of merchandise with him!

What are your favorite amiibos? Any characters you hope will be made into amiibos in the future?
