Brand New Zelda Amiibo Will Drop Fish From The Sky In Breath of the Wild

Posted on December 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Nintendo’s brand new The Legend of Zelda 30th anniversary amiibos will allow Link to procure items from the sky in next year’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you ever thought that what The Legend of Zelda series needed was a delivery of fish from the sky, boy are you in luck. This is the sort of random and WTF kind of fun nonsense that I wish Nintendo indulged in just a little bit more.

Today saw the launch of four brand new amiibo on store shelves – 8 Bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link and Toon Link + Toon Zelda as a two pack.

Here are the unlockables that will drop from the skies of Hyrule once you’ve used any of the four new amibo with Breath of the Wild:

  • “Ocarina  of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
  • 8-bit  Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
  • Toon  Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
  • Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.”

No description of fish, rupees and barrels falling from the skies would be complete without some animated gifs of the new amiibo in action. Thankfully Nintendo’s official Twitter account is here to oblige:



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got two brand new trailers earlier this week that fans have of course ripped apart and analyzed.



Is Square Enix’s Marketing Department Just Trolling Us With Kingdom Hearts III At This Point?

This afternoon as I sat down at my desk to write up some news I was elated to find that one of the gaming PR wires that aggregates new press releases and media featured brand new media for Kingdom Hearts III. Considering the anemic level of marketing the game has received surely Square Enix knew that releasing event a single screenshot would create immense amounts of coverage except a single Kingdom Hearts III screenshot wasn’t what I found when I loaded their press site.Read More


Fake WiiU Gamepad Auction Sat at 90K Before Being Pulled

Posted on November 26, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

File this one under the W.T.F category. Online gaming auctions can sometimes be a little ridiculous but surely this storefront selling cardboard facsimiles of a Wii U Gamepad is a joke.

All of the hubub started after sites like destructoid picked up on a now pulled Ebay Auction featuring a crudely drawn Wii U Gamepad penned onto a piece of cardboard that had bids over the $90,000! Since all of the press imitators have started to pop up, most of which can be yours for the low low cost of $9.99!

It is doubtful any of these auctions will result in a sale, then again Ebay is the site where someone bought a grilled cheese sandwich with a picture of the Virgin Mary on it.
