Public Service Announcement: Stock Up on Wii Nunchuks!

Hello, everyone! Walapie Gamer, the Nintendo Archiver, here with a Public Service Announcement.

mii


I recommend stocking up on Nintendo Wii product especially the awesome Nunchuk accessory.  Oh. Why, you ask? With the Nintendo Switch out in the marketplace, and some inside of homes across the globe, new copies of older products will surely be hard to come by.

I’M ALL SET!

For those who want a brand new Nunchuk–or two or three, as you can see from my personal collection from the image above–I suggest checking the links below.

BEST BUY

Best Buy is selling these goodies for $11.99. Wow! What a steal. In fact, this is how I purchased my trio of brand new ‘chuks. They’re on clearance so snag them while the deal lasts.

AMAZON

Amazon has plenty hovering around (above and below) the $15.00 range. The lowest price I saw today was $12.92!!! Wow, again! Just check out the many third party sellers if you do not see one from Amazon directly. Still a good deal for a product with a suggested retail price of $19.99.

NINTENDO STORE

But if you do not mind a refurbished Nunchuk, you can purchase one straight from the source from the online Nintendo Store. $10.00 is the asking price in the colors red or white.

Act as fast as you can if you can afford to do so. All dollars are U.S. and all links are for North American purposes. This is the internet so search around to find Wii Nunchuk deals in your part of the planet. One thing is for sure: New Wii games and accessories will surely be harder to come by as the years continue to pass.

Well, that will be it for this Public Service Announcement. I hope you have fun chucking in the coming days, months, and years with your brand new Wii Nunchuks.

This is Walpaie Gamer, the Nintendo Archiver, signing out.

HAPPY GAMING. EVERYONE!

Nintendo amiibo Hunting for Super Mario Series Wario

The Beauty of Wario

Amiibo are Nintendo’s physical figurines that interact with digital games for Nintendo’s various gaming hardware while also looking good on shelves. I’ve maintained a selective approach to obtaining these figurines. But because Wario is one of my favorite video game characters, it was only fitting I’d hunt for his amiibo.

Wario in All of His Glory

Just look at his mustache, round belly, and awesome grape-mustard color design. Wario doesn’t care if he’s essentially an evil imperfect clone of Mario turned upside down. He’s too busy having fun loving himself.

Wario In Time-Out

And now he sits next to all of my other amiibo, happy as can be. As long as he is not in “time-out” for bad behavior.

Fun fact: My spouse found this amiibo on sale during her trip to Hawaii! I’m proud of her.

But the same can not be said about GameStop’s eye for details. Wario is definitely not Waluigi. Because we all know Wario’s gonna win. 😉

Hands-On With GameWill’s Steering Wheel for the Nintendo Switch

BEHOLD THE GAMEWILL STEERING WHEEL FOR NINTENDO SWITCH.

To accompany my purchase of Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, I had to obtain a set of steering wheels for my Joy-Con controllers. And I did just that and found a perfect set on Amazon.com. GameWill’s Steering Wheel For Nintendo Switch is a set of two steering wheel shells for the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons.

SWITCH STEERING WHEEL (RIGHT) COMPARED TO WII WHEEL (LEFT) ADD-ON.

This controller shell is for those who want to play Nintendo Switch racing games, or Mario Kart 8: Deluxe specifically, in a fashion that mimics using the Joy-Con controllers as a steering wheel via motion controls.

FRONT OF BOX.

The controllers are matte black with a glossy finish underneath where the Joy-Con is seated and inside the plus and minus markers.

BACKSIDE OF BOX.

Both myself and my spouse agree that the steering wheel controller shell is comfortable to hold for small to average/large hands.

SL/SR BUTTONS.

There are two large buttons that activate the SL and SR when pressed allowing the use of the SL/SR buttons with ease and comfort.

I feel very comfortable with my purchase of these steering wheel shells. The quality is great, the controllers feel sturdy, the Joy-Cons stay inside even during the most heated race, and the price is just right for a set of two. My spouse really enjoys playing the game with motion controls so these really worked for her.

At the time of my purchase, GameWill’s Steering Wheel for Nintendo Switch can be purchased for $12.99 (U.S. dollars).

I purchased this product for my own benefit; this is a non-sponsored article. This controller shell simply rocks and meets my needs. And I hope you enjoy them, too.

Aero the Acro-Bat: Bucket List Game in Pictures

Aero the Acro-Bat is a Bucket List game. Period. Here is an excerpt from our glowing overview of the classic game. Read the entire thing and much more in Backlog and Bucket List Issue 1:

I received Aero the Acro-Bat the same day as Mega Man X for my birthday when I was young. Although Aero found a stiff competitor in one of the best Bucket List Games of all time in the Blue Bomber’s first X outing on the Super Nintendo, I could not help but love the circus bat’s five-star performance.

Now, enjoy Aero the Acro-Bat in pictures!

You should add Aero to your Bucket List because . . .

Aero jumps through rings!
