Here’s the list of this week’s new video game releases. Popular video games released this week are: Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN and 6 new Amiibo. Yes, the plural of Amiibo is Amiibo as well, says Nintendo. 🙂
Only a few year-end releases. The big deal this week are the Amiibo Wave 2 figures. I ordered Wave 1 online and still haven’t received them yet with stores selling out of the non-cross-eye painted figures daily. Seems like there’s a run on them, so I recommend pre-ordering your favorites.
Update: Even pre-orders are selling out in America, Canada, Europe & Australia, because it’s become clear the unpopular figures may only get 1 or 2 shipments (or won’t get re-stocked until January 2015) making them the rarest… I’m looking at you Villager, Kirby & Marth!

- Amiibo Wave 2 – Captain Falcon

I’m LOVING Tetris Ultimate on my 3DS! I highly recommend anyone who’s played Tetris pick it up. I need to put in a lot more hours, but so far it’s getting close to my favorite Tetris of all time — Tetris DS — Game Boy nostalgia aside. Good times! 😀
