Amiibo Double Heartbreak












Two rare Amiibos. Two online orders from two separate retailers. Within the span of a week, all I could do was watch in dismay as both would cancel my orders for Captain Falcon and Villager. Neither retailer could secure enough to meet the demand for either, so they just cancelled my orders and refunded me the money.

I’m really bummed out that I got this far into the purchase process and it didn’t work out, but at least I got my money back. In particular, I really had my hopes up that the Villager from B+H Camera would go through. Oh well, maybe someday I’ll eventually have both in my collection. For now though, I’ll keep hunting!

2012 Year in Review: In Third Person X Amazon

At the beginning of 2012, I rolled out the Amazon affiliate program onto In Third Person. While I don’t do this for a living, and I know that people hate advertising, but it’s a means of compensation for all of the work I do for the site. At the very least, I’ve tried to implement it in a way where it makes things easier for you to buy what you were interested in purchasing anyway. Due to technological limitations with Amazon and WordPress, my implementation of it isn’t that great. With that said, I’m surprised (and thankful) for how much stuff you’ve purchased. In case you’re interested, most users bought fightsticks, though the variety of gaming stuff purchased was pretty interesting.

Going into next year, how would you like to see this improve? Would love to hear your feedback!

On Sale at – April 10th Edition

I’m trying something a bit different. If it works out, we might keep this as a regular thing. There are some sweet deals on and I thought it’d be cool to share them with you. These deals are likely a limited time offer, and I have no idea when they expire, so act fast before it’s too late! Part of the proceeds raised from the purchases of these games supports In Third Person, so I’ll send my good vibes to you should you choose to purchase.

Canadians Looking For Mad Catz Fightsticks

The Mad Catz fightstick situation in Canada is horrible nowadays. Unlike in the United States, where many different local and online retailers carry the whole line, Mad Catz products are technically only available at EBGames/Gamestop here. When they were available, each store would have maybe one TE and one SE. However, Gamestop has not replenished their supply in months, and I don’t think intend on doing so anytime soon.
