So I found out about this thanks to Okchief420 on YouTube. I'll actually add the video below of his rant about this nonsense by Walmart. Anyways it appears that Walmart has jumped on the band wagon of price gouging the NES Classic. MSRP of the recently launched NES Classic is $59.99 and per his video there is a 3rd party Murloc Express selling the NES Classic through Walmart for $499.99.
I wanted to see how legit this was this morning and pulled it up and the picture above is what I found. I guess there was a price drop over night! Lucky Day right? Only $389.99 now! I'm in the same camp as Okchief420 this is just ridiculous and can't believe Walmart would be promoting something like this on their site. From what he says in his video Walmart is expected to get more NES Classics between the 14th and 22nd of the month which makes me wonder if they are going to stick with that price or not.
So what do you guys think? Does this piss you off as it does me? Let us know in the comments!
Just got this email from Nintendo!!! I know we can't wait to download this when it launches. It's been an exciting time here recently for Nintendo fans. First they announced the NES Classic followed by the announcement of Mario coming to mobile platforms then the Nintendo Switch! Now the launch of the NES Classic which are literally driving people insane due to the lack of current supply. But we'll save that for a later post!
Do you plan on downloading? Let us know if you're just as excited about this game as we are! And if you're not excited let us know why!
A source says that Toys R Us Canada accidently posted a listing for the console on their website. The listing shows the Nintendo Switch will launch at $329.99 Canadian which roughly translates to $249.99 US.
This could have just been Toys R Us creating early links for the various products to activate when the Switch launches and those numbers were just made up. Or... it could be legit! If legit, $250 for the switch would be great for gamers! Here was a screen shot by wccftech.
The link has since been removed. But again if true this price is on par with this years PS4's and Xbox One's Black Friday deals. Which should make any gamer a happy gamer.

It is finally here! Pokémon GO the Augmented Reality mobile game has finally arrived. Yesterday I was bouncing back and forth from Summoners War to the App Store all day to make sure I downloaded the game. I wont lie I've never been a big Pokémon fan but I have always been intrigued by the games and this one with its real world setting has got me all kinds of excited. Here is a bit more information from Pokémon GO's wiki page:
Pokémon GO is an augmented-reality game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices. The game was released in July 2016. The game allows players to capture, battle, train, and trade virtual Pokémon who appear throughout the real world. The game is free-to-play, although it supports in-app purchases. A small wearable device was released alongside the game, called the Pokémon Go Plus. The device uses a Bluetooth connection to notify users when a Pokémon is nearby with an LED and a light rumble, and is sold separately from the app.
Different Pokémon live in different areas of the world; for example, water-type Pokémon live near water. A wristband device called the Pokémon Go Plus will be available for use with the app, enabling a more heads-up gaming experience than Ingress provides.[dubious – discuss] The device uses Bluetooth technology to connect with the players smart device and uses vibration and a flashing light to alert the player of the presence of a nearby Pokémon. The player presses the button in a coded sequence to catch the Pokémon, and can check the app later to discover which Pokémon has been captured.
So as you can see there are a lot of exciting possibility's for this game. As a matter of fact this morning I found a Rattata at my local gas station and while pulling in to work I had to stop because a Pidgeotto was roaming our parking lot!
The game is pretty neat so far using your location to find Pokémon in your area. You start off by creating your own customer Avatar, the options are kind of slim here but it'll do.
Here are the one's I've caught so far:
- F2P: yep this is another Free to Play game
- It's Pokémon... The name alone carry's a lot of weight
- Augmented Reality: Get out there and find them in your yard, work or home
- F2P: more games have switched to this platform for a reason, easy money
- Avatar customization is pretty lacking
What do you think? Already download the game? Which Pokémon have you caught?

So I didn't get to watch the whole Nintendo Conference this morning but I did see this trailer! What did you think?
Like Zach Fleeman before him, Matt Giguere is back to discuss one of the games that made his top five list of the year…except it’s from his top five list from 2014, Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
If you don’t remember our episode on Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (it was our fourth episode after all), we give a refresher on Kirby’s history and what makes Kirby: Triple Deluxe unique (or not so unique, as the case may be).
The final part of our three-part 50th episode epic. This section focuses on our favorite games on Nintendo handhelds.
Zach had to duck out last episode, so it’s just Chase and Matt for this one.
Thanks for supporting GOTG over the years. We’ll be posting more content in 2016 and beyond!
