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).

I had the pleasure of talking to a lot of people while attending the EB Expo 2015 in Sydney recently. For me, the most exciting part of these conventions is less the experience to play upcoming games (my mind and wallet aren’t easily swayed) but meeting and discussing the world of video games person-to-person. Everyone in that hall is passionate gamer (or a parent hiding out in the parents lounge). It’s a pretty amazing energy.

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.

200 characters and you choose Dark Pit

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.

The great debate of what a gamer should be putting into their body is an age-old debate spanning the entire history of modern video games. While the users of Tumblr tear their beating hearts apart on the topic of which food is more superior for their genius intellect (no[r]mally revolving towards the areas of pizza, cheese and, Internet cool dude food of 2010; bacon), the debate on the beverage has been clear to me despite what anyone else says ever. Water IS the ULTIMATE beverage for THE GAMING populace.

Nintendo’s DS portable game console sold miraculously. Why exactly comes down to a lot of factors; the games, the current climate, the price, and many more reasons. After taking a beating from Playstation 2 in the 6th generation console race, Nintendo had an enormously successful period in the next generation of consoles. I have to admit; I have some very fond memories of the DS and love a lot about it. But looking at Nintendo now and some of the things that kept Nintendo going in the period the DS conquered all, I can’t help but think that they’ve carried some bad attitudes with them.

I play games with the lights on. I know what you’re thinking, that the glare is terrible and that I should be shot. But there’s much more to this situation than meets the eye. You see, as a modern gaming expert in the field of playing video toys I have reached some conclusions about the methods of engaging in interactive experiences through play.

The true essence of gaming

There really is no excuse for me not publishing anything substantial to this blog. I could say there’s been a lot of gaming and a lot of good times, but that’s pussy footing around the real issue here: I’m a lazy shit. To be honest, I’ve got a whole heap of half written articles on my desktop waiting to be finished but for now you’ll have to put up with the greatest copout piece of all.
