GameStop joins the growing list of retailers screwed by Nintendo's US amiibo rollout

I know a lot of people don't like GameStop. That's cool. Like any retailer, bad customer service has the propensity to make people not want to return to a store. My local GameStop though is pretty great, and I've developed a ...

Wallet Busters: PC games winter sales arrive in force
by Dealzon

For those PC gamers who aren't yet broke from all the holiday shopping, this week Steam, GMG, GameStop, and heck -- even Uplay, launched PC games winter sales to tug at your wallet.

Steam's winter sale went live Thursday at the usual 10:00 AM time slot, filled with some nice surprise such as the appearance of Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition. Over at GMG, they're attempting to price match Steam and tossing in a coupon for an additional 20% off for good measure.

GameStop's winter sale, while not as large as others, does have EA titles such as Battlefield 4 and C&C Ultimate Collection for only five bucks. Meanwhile, everyone's favorite DRM Uplay has its catalog on sale too: the excellent Valiant Hearts and Child of Light are only $6 a piece. Heck, even Steam keys of Stick of Truth are available at $13.

If you're looking for a last-minute gift on a console system, a few retailers are having some decent sales. For instance, the Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle is $349.99 at Target with a bonus $70 Gift Card today while the 32GB Wii U Deluxe clocks in at $249.99. Not bad.

Game deals brought to by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: Sales from certain retailers help support Destructoid.

Shulk is the first revealed exclusive amiibo, and GameStop has the rights

It's been known that Nintendo planned to decentralize the way it distributed amiibo. That is, not all of them will be readily and equally available everywhere. Company president Satoru Iwata told investors recently that Ninte...

GameStop is giving out Diancie for Pokémon X and Y photo
GameStop is giving out Diancie for Pokémon X and Y
by Jordan Devore

Shiny Gengar is no more (hope you got yours!) but another distribution event for Pokémon X and Y has taken its place. Today through November 16 at GameStop, you'll be able to score a free code for the Legendary Rock/Fairy-type Pokémon Diancie.

Once Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are released on November 21, you'll then be able to bring your Diancie to a Pokémon Center in either game to obtain the Diancite Mega Stone necessary for its Mega Evolution. What's the new form look like? Less ... chunky.

Add a shiny Gengar to your Pokémon collection photo
Add a shiny Gengar to your Pokémon collection
by Jordan Devore

Now through October 26, you'll be able to score a shiny Gengar holding Gengarite, the stone necessary for its Mega Evolution, at GameStop. Simply bring in your copy of either Pokémon X or Y for a free redeemable code.

If you're thinking of skipping this video, allow me to point out that it shows Mega Gengar spraying toxic throw-up ("Sludge Wave," officially) on a pack of Mime Juniors. It's what they get for being all small 'n' creepy. The move can't be learned in normal gameplay, for what it's worth.

This'll be a good get. But, leading into the Ruby / Sapphire remakes, I'm contemplating giving away (well, Wonder Trading) all of my Pokémon. Going in fresh. Decisions, decisions.
