Nintendo: Where's My Amiibo?

Nintendo: Where's My Amiibo

Nintendo is arguably the most popular company in gaming. From their humble beginnings to the household name that they are today, it appears that Nintendo has done everything right. While that statement can certainly be debated, there is no question Nintendo has been incredibly successful. With that being said, Nintendo has had a very hard time with the supply of their most popular products. Some of the popular products that Nintendo has had difficulty keeping in stock, at least as far as I remember, are the Wii, the Wii U, and the very popular Amiibos. While I still find it hard to believe that Nintendo didn't plan properly for the releases of the Wii and Wii U, I am among many in being very disappointed and annoyed in not being able to find, or being able to afford, the Amiibo that I would like. So where's my Amiibo Nintendo?

Bringing 4K Gaming to Life on PC

4K vs HD

What was once a simple Google search is now a PC worth thousands with the power to deliver incredible visuals at high frame rates. I am talking about my latest PC build for those who have not been following the discussions here on The Gamer Access. A machine powered by NVIDIA’s GTX 980 (soon to be SLI with two 980s) and Intel’s i7-5820K, has been born to take on the reality of 4K gaming and pushing titles such as the upcoming The Witcher 3 to incredible performance. If you have not already, I encourage you all to check out my review of MSI’s GTX 980 Gaming 4G card which is currently powering the graphics of my machine, but I also wanted to cover the many other components involved in making this experience a reality.

Yes, things got kind of awkward, and we wrapped things up with a trivia game!

Building John's 800 Dollar PC

Building John's 800 Dollar PC

Watch, as amateur Anthony Ta assembles John Macaluso’s computing machine and brings it to life! We talked a lot about how owning a gaming PC may be “cheaper” in the long run, as well as how it is not as “hard” to build one these days as it used to be. Because John needed a computer, we had a system build on a budget of 800 dollars that can play games. Not counting the second-hand CPU or wireless network USB device, the shiny new parts costed about $750. Building the system took about three hours, which included getting confused on instructions, and committing some gaffes and procedures along the way that are bound to give PC builder professions a heart attack. Note that this video covers the physical build of the system, not the installation of software and system drivers.
