Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 3] : Amiibo Sandwich Blues

Ness Amiibo Sandwich Blues

The third episode of the Half-Glass Gaming starts off on the wrong foot, as Josh explains how Subway ruined his breakfast. Then, after the break, we break down Nintendo’s incompetence at handling the amiibo situation, which makes Josh even grumpier than bad breakfast. It’s a mile-a-minute thrill ride, as the big N gets curb stomped and amiibo figures go flying.

We also meander around topics like Tony Hawk’s mysterious resemblance to Adam Sandler, EarthBound‘s marketing campaign, Nintendo setting people on fire, and Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures.

Buckle up and grab a cup, it’s Half-Glass Gaming: Episode 3.

If you want to learn more about the marketing campaign that sunk EarthBound, we’ve got you covered with this detailed article on the topic.
