Toys R Us sale ad for Easter has a buy one, get one 40% discount on games

Time to round out this week’s Easter/spring sale ad roundup. We already went over what Best Buy and Target have to offer, so it’s time to fall back and see what the Toys R Us sale looks like.

Feast your eyes on Disney Infinity 2.0’s Falcon

All of the Avengers can finally assemble in Disney Infinity 2.0. I guess he had some things to take care of, maybe he was roosting, but that doesn’t matter. Falcon is here now and we’re glad of it.

Ready to head to the on your or today? I assure you if you do, it will be a rather quick trip. We’re in the midst of a lull. There are six new games, two for the 3DS, three for the Wii U, and one DSiWare title, but none of them are especially striking or more »

These 3 Toad Amiibo mods are the best

Yes, we’re really doing this now. I’m sorry. The various Toad Amiibo mods that have come out in the past few days since the Mario Party 10 NFC figure releases are too good.

It comes out this May, and now has its own website to keep fans updated in the meantime. more »

Toad is both the best and worst Amiibo

The first Super Mario wave of Nintendo’s Amiibo figures just hit stores. Included in this batch is Toad, the worst one released so far. And also the best.

Nintendo eShop Update for March 19, 2015

Today is one of those days. We’re right in the cozy period where Nintendo likes to release a lot of first party games. That means the online-exclusive offerings fade away.
