2014 Game Retrospective - Part 5

T'was the night before Christmas, and I couldn't think up a rhyme... No, seriously, it would be the obvious joke to make here: An intro in rhyme. I've never been good with that though, so let's just jump into the continuing recap of 2014 in the comedy stylings of myself and Jen.

Hyrule Warriors Adds Amiibo Support, New DLC, And I Keep Playing It

I could tell you all about how Nintendo has rolled out the second part of its planned DLC for Hyrule Warriors and added the ability to scan amiibos for extra loot.

R.O.B., the Power Pad, the Super Scope, the N64 Transfer Pak, the GBA-GCN Link Cable, the Gamecube Broadband Adapter, Wii Speak, AR Cards, the Circle Pad Pro, the 3DS Stand.

Loot Crate and Smash Bros.

I won't make any bones about it; I think Loot Crate and the services like it are stupid. If I'm going to blow my tiny earnings on "geek-themed" garbage I at least want to be able to select exactly what garbage I buy. That's why I have a wall of Metal Gear merchandise that I meticulously curate and not a semi-random assortment of POP Vinyls and fan-made t-shirts of [any pop culture icon] interacting with a TARDIS, but to each their own.
