Here are all the amiibo waves and figures we know about

The amiibo figures out today, and in some locations, they're selling out. While Villager and Wii Fit Trainer seem to be two of the rarer figures, Marth is decidedly the one to look for, as he's currently going for $30 on Ama...

Just how rare are some of Nintendo's amiibo toys at launch?

While Nintendo provided me with the Link, Mario, and Kirby amiibo toys for testing with Super Smash Bros., acquiring the rest of the lot was completely up to me. So I decided to take a trip early this morning, survey any pote...

Here's how Nintendo's amiibo figures work, and how they interact with Smash Bros.

Nintendo's long awaited foray into the toy market is here: the amiibo are ready for purchase, and the flagship game, Super Smash Bros., is right on the horizon. While the toys look great in person and the setup is painless, so far the actual interactivity is underwhelming. Collector itch aside, I'd definitely recommend waiting until more compatible games are out before committing to any purchases.

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from...

You'll probably end up putting an eye out with this Assassin's Creed blade

Do you have delusions of grandeur, the likes of which lead you to fancy yourself a great assassin among the likes of Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Arno Dorian? A mere $60 will put you significantly closer to assassin authentic...

Amiibo figures might not look as great as advertised

When Nintendo debuted Amiibo at E3 this year, the company noted the figures shown during its initial presentation weren't final. They looked amazing, a little too good to be true. Well, Joystiq recently got a look a...

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin...

Review: Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

Disney Infinity was quite the ambitious project, but it fell flat in a few key areas. This was mostly due to a lack of even game worlds, with a few of the universes overshadowing others that felt more rushed. The other a...
