Man Buys Rosalina Amiibos in Bulk Out of Spite

Man Buys Rosalina Amiibos in Bulk Out of Spite

Apparently Has 100+ Figures Pre-Ordered

The reason why there is such a small supply of Rosalina & Luma amiibos could be because of people who buy the figures in bulk and possibly sell them for a larger amount of money than the original sale price. The term for this is "scalping," and while it's mostly used in the context of concert or sporting event tickets, this unsavory practice can still be used to apply here. One person, in particular, is buying a lot of certain amiibos and then reselling them for a large amount. Read more »

Player Theory’s Top 10 Video Games of 2014

Player Theory’s Top 10 Video Games of 2014

Twas a Year Full of TellTale, Smash, Angels, and More

2014 is has come to an end and we had some great games. Admittedly, it wasn’t a particularly awesome year for gaming all around. I feel that certain areas shined absolutely wonderfully this year in any case. So here are our top ten games of 2014.

Now, this list needs some context. This list is what I got to play this year. I didn’t get around to playing every game this year in full. So games like “Far Cry 4,” “Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor,” or “Dragon Age: Inquisition” didn’t make the cut. Also, this is a list of games I enjoyed. If you had some games you really enjoyed or didn’t, excellent! These are just the ones I liked the most. One last thing: no re-releases or remasters. If I could have remasters on the list, “Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix” would be in the top five easily. Read more »
