It’s been a long time since I posted anything to this site, due to personal issue. For this post I decided to skip the video and just pictures to show you guys what I can get for my customers today.
Yes, is the newly launched Wool Yoshi Amiibo. Today is the new release of the Wii U title Yoshi’s Woolly World in Japan, and so it make sense they would release the Amiibos as well. In fact I had decided to collect one set (Green, Blue and Pink) for myself. Not only it is made from Wool (which is tad more expensive from the normal Amiibo), it can be use as accessories (which I think is pretty cool).
Hope you guys have a good weekend. Will update again when I receive my parcel from Japan by end of the month. This month I’ve been trying to mod my GBA with AGS-001 frontlight screen...Read More
The gaming community received some sad news today as it was learned the Satoru Iwata, CEO of Nintendo, had passed away. He was 55 years old. Nintendo released the following statement: “Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth.” The illness was something Iwata had been battling over the last couple of years, and it caused him to miss E3 in 2014.
Iwata began his career with Nintendo as a programmer in the 1980s, working at the HAL Laboratory. He helped to create the character of Kirby, launching his debut in Dream Land on the Game Boy in 1992. In 2000, he became director of the company, and was appointed President in May 2002...Read More

It seems LEGO games appear on a regular basis, coinciding with blockbuster movies and just giving gamers their chance to collect studs and play with virtual blocks. So it’s no surprise that with Jurassic World stomping into theaters and all over box office records that we get a LEGO game tie in. And we get a full Jurassic experience, as the game contains all four movies- Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and of course the titular movie. Each game is composed of five levels and hits all the highlights of the films, faithfully recreating famous scenes and reciting famous lines. One note here: Because the game does recreate the movies so well, I’d recommend skipping the Jurassic World portion until after you’ve seen the film to avoid spoilers...Read More
