When I was a wee child, lots of video games scared me. Not Super Mario RPG. This game was fun, the story was fantastic, and I loved how charming the characters were, especially Mallow. Mallow was fav, my adorable fluffy magical cloud buddy.
I mean just look at him. Look at him GOD DAMMIT. HE'S HELLAH ADORBS. Why haven't you cashed in on this Nintendo?! Why?! #Mallow4Lyfe!!
So Nintendo has gone public with an "apology" for their artificial scarcity marketing ploy. It's easily one of the most smug and patronizing pieces of PR I've read in a while, so I don't expect them to stop using this tactic anytime soon.
And yet...even I would make a few bids on Ebay if they were to release a Mallow or Geno Amiibo. Such is the sad state of being a loyal fan of their bullshit.
