Thought I’d step into the new millennium and try do a video. I’ll admit it’s pretty slapdash but to be honest I expected the new details of the next Nintendo loyalty program to come out within a week of post this video.

I’ve given this different names all over the place. Here’s I’m calling it “Gahmer TV”, in the video I call it “Gahmerin’ with Terrible Aaron” as a spur of the moment thing. I do want to make it a regular thing (I know, me and regular things don’t mix). I’d appreciate any feedback and suggestions people may have (except on the thumbnail, because it’s perfect).

Edit: As of December 1st 2015, amiiqo devices have started shipping as ‘N2 Elite’. Same product, different labelling, most likely to distance its clear intentions.

Have you read about amiiqo? Don’t worry, you read that right. The amiiqo is the answer to having all your amiibo on the one NFC device, meaning that you can keep all your amiibo on the shelf or keep them mint in their boxes while enjoying their full functionality. The device has of course gained attention for the reason that it will provide people access to all sorts of amiibo without buying each figurine. While the device has a relatively high recommended retail price of US$49.95, the device could save pirates a lot of money in the long run. While the device itself isn’t necessarily illegal to possess, the possession of the .bin files needed to emulate each amiibo is where the legal situation gets sticky. The data of each amiibo is Nintendo intellectual property and they have the right to fight for it.

I know a lot of people are shaking their fists and getting mad at the hypothetical scenario this tool creates, but I don’t think that this will be a very widespread or popular device. Here are just some thoughts on why the amiiqo won’t take off.

To anyone that visits this site or followers the Twitter you’ll probably notice that I’m pretty interested in the Australia Club Nintendo Catalogue and have been recording changes in stock for quite a while. This morning it seems that our buddies at Nintendo Australia have caught some Christmas cheer and reduced some of their catalogue’s prices, meaning you could be saving quite a few Stars (20-40% off).
