Interested in amiibo? Did you just buy a new house to contain your expanding collection? Then subscribe to this thread! Its purpose is to be a clearing house for availability/deals/tips/trades for amiibo. Find a rare amiibo available somewhere? Post it here! End up with an extra one that someone else might want? Let everyone know! Need that special amiibo and are willing to pay shipping? Ask for it here!
 
I'll endeavor to keep this first post updated with two things: Tools and resources for tracking down and checking availability of amiibo, and a list of who wants what, for anyone who's out and about and comes across a motherlode. It's left up to individuals to arrange shipment/payment, though. Please play nice, this isn't eBay. ;)
 
Post your resources and info, along with wants and haves, and I'll update this post as I can.
 
Stores that you wouldn't expect amiibo to be in

Tools and Resources

  • Someone wrote a script that tweets whenever stock or prices change on amiibo at Amazon. Follow @amiibo_tracker to get updates.
  • amiibo subreddit (Lots of good info/insight. Clearly not a well-kept secret).
  • Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (unsure how often updated, YMMV)
  • Another Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (again, YMMV)
  • Target Inventory Checker (thanks to Prime for posting this and the numbers)
    • Target DCPI numbers for amiibo

Have or Want
Some basic guidelines on the spirit of the "Want" list:
This is envisioned as an easy single place to look and see if someone's looking for an amiibo that you've come across. If you post your wants here, know that there's an expectation that you'll pay someone back for it, along with shipping. Of course, it's up to the individual who bought if they want to gift it, but I doubt if anyone's expecting this to be a, "buy it for me!" list.
Also for purchasers, this list doesn't mean, "buy it at any price", since anyone can do that. Its intent is to have a way for someone to grab an amiibo at MSRP for someone who doesn't have any in their area. Best to buy from stores that have an easy return policy, if need be.
Neither the Amiibo Hunt thread, nor its creator, nor the CS administration team is responsible for working out the details of amiibo transactions. Those can be taken care of in PMs. Public displays of appreciation are approved of. :D

The day has come when the first member of CS has reached a five-figure post count! With this post, everyone's favorite cream-tastic Plant has broken to the 10,000 post barrier! Milestones like this make me nostalgic for the old days--even a little sad. I start to get pretty emo when I think about the old days, and I tend to do that quite a lot. As tribute in memory of years past, I created this celebratory image comprised of many other images I've posted over time. Though most of it relates to myself and my posts, I hope you guys will enjoy this and recall old memories too! Damn, it's been a long time, and yet it's all gone by so fast. Thanks for sticking around this long, everyone! :D

#16512860 Sexism in Gaming

Posted by LazyyDogg on 26 May 2015 - 09:53 PM

As a female enthusiast of the interactive arts, especially as one who is competitive and strives to best her opponents, i've seen my fair share of unfair remarks against my gender. These remarks have veried between the slightly rude but unintentional to straight-up threats of rape (no,really). They mostly lie somewhere in the middle. 

 

This veries from region to region, of course, and here in Washington a lot of people are generally proud of "acceptance" and "equality" in everyday matters. Pot is legal and so are gay marriages. Seattle is a center for many gay rights movements as well as feminism and all that. And that's cool and everything, but i'm honestly a very self-involved person and not incredibly active outsid the few communities imma part of.

 

One of these is the Smash community. Overall, i found that girl players, while still rare, are relatively well-treated nowadays and this only seems to be improving. But theres still a long ways to go. It's still annoying to find a girl pop up on a Twitch stream and have the chat immediately explode with "omg its a grill!! she's so hot! like a 7/10!!" It's even more annoying when they say, "oh she's actually pretty good" when she's getting rekt and is obviously a noob. And of course its most annoying when the chat gets angry and turns against her and starts calling her an attention whore or worse...

 

Milktea, who you might know from the Smash Documentary, is one of my favorite women in gaming because I find in her a lot of parallels to myself. Like me, she grew up being bullied for being Asian, and she struggled with her shyness. The biggest thing Milktea and i have in common, of course, is our love for gaming. particularly, our love for Smash. Also just like her,i used to despise other gaming girls (or any nerd-girl) for the same reason some male gamers would hate me: I would just think they only did it for the attention.

 

Milktea, aka Lilian Chen, has become a prominent spokesperson for women in gaming. I especially love her non-hostile approach. She doesn't aim to accuse and shame male gamers for some of their past actions. Her key to raising awareness is empathy, which is a quality i've always strived to develop in myself.

 

Here's a recent TEDTalk by Lilian Chen where she talks about everything I just said but better. Just pretend she's me!

 

 

I know this forum is dominated by male gamers, but i'd love to hear your opinion on the matter in general, if you have one. I don't mean to stir up some heated debate on sexism and repression of women and all that. I'm not a Social Justice Warrior. In fact, they're the very reason i left Tumblr.

 

No, the point i want to make is that i'm better than all of you. wait... nope. that's not it.

 

Okay, the point I want to make is simply to raise a lil bit of awareness. I doubt any of you have been completely oblivious to this issue, but as male gamers, holy shit do you guys have it easy. I've found acceptence and even made good friends through gaming nowadays, but... still to this day, at nearly every tournament, convention, comic book store or hobby shop I set foot in, I am awkwardly approached, stared at, patronized, assaulted with questions, put-down, insulted, idolized or villainized (that would be in order of least to worst).

 

I joke a lot at the fact that i'm a girl gamer. I poke fun at myself a lot sometimes because if I make other people aware that, "hey, she's a grill!" it'll help develop the idea that, "hey, she's just a nerd like me!" Other times, I will admit, I do like the attention. But whenever someone questions my nerd-cred, my love of the subject, it can be more than frustrating.

 

Thankfully, i think i've found a nice lil community here that doesn't yet seem to have any problems with my gender. Which is amazing, really. Great job guys. Of course, the anonimity of the internet helps a bunch, but you'd be surprised at how many angry tweens on forums who've never met me irl sent me hostile PMs because say their girlfriend since kindergarten just dumped him and now all girls are evil and so its all my fault. ● ﹏☉ But thats actually a hilarious example. There were much worse ones...

 

I hope i'm not sendin the wrong message here. this is my first real topic on Chozo Sanctuary, and I don't want to seem like some preachy, pissed-off feminist. I'm not a fantastic writer so i only hope this makes sense. Really, i just watched that TEDtalk and it stirred up a desire to say something about it.

 

Just food for thought. You may feed me back if you wish. Lazyy: signing out.

Not too be a total downer, but...

Just wanted to say thanks to all that get to play tonight and the friends that I've made on this forum. It's been a lot of fun meeting new people.

Today's my brother's birthday and he passed away in 2012. I'm sure he's really happy for me too that I get to enjoy fun and laughter with you guys. He always really enjoyed Mario Kart and I wish he could be joining us for this tournament.

 

Anyway... Enough about my sad life.

Really excited to see people's whacky Miis they came up with. I morphed together a hilariously goofy Iwata. I'm quite proud of my creation.

#16510269 Official CS Mario Kart 8 Tournament Thread

Posted by torgo on 07 March 2015 - 10:22 AM

Ok folks, here's that "extra thing" I was talking about in the wrap-up post. Now that I can get HD video off the Wii U easily, and since iMovie has this "sports team" theme that makes it ridiculously easy to do some of these titles and stuff, I thought I'd take a swing at doing highlight movie.
 
Constructive criticism is appreciated (I already know there's some things that aren't quite right with some transitions, some extra frames that the beginning, and my audio levels are too disparate between game footage and other sections), and I have some ideas for ways to do things different going forward (which I might need help from other racers for a few aspects).
 
Prowl and Robok: Can you go to your Mii Maker app and export a headshot JPG of Caitlyn and J9, respectively, and send it to me? I plant to keep putting Mii pictures in these, but I don't have one for either of them. Also, if anyone else wants their Mii picture to look different, just send me the one you want (Plant, I'm not putting a picture of a dick in there for your picture).
 
So, without further ado, here's some highlights (watch at 720p for full enjoyment).

#16474818 [Archive 1] Who's that (not a) Pokémon?!

Posted by Admin Prime on 24 October 2010 - 02:01 PM

So I got bored just now and thought of this. Dunno if it will catch on, but here goes. Also, I'm not sure what the final format will be, but for the first few rounds it will just be me, and then we'll see what you guys wanna do after that. Aaaaanyway I'll start off with a crazy easy one.

WHO'S THAT POKéMON?!

Edit: Rules, because I apparently need to post them:
  • Do not start the next round until the host of the last round announces a winner, unless a mod/admin says otherwise.
  • Do not use excessively obscure characters. It can be challenging, just not ridiculous. (ex: Captain A.C. Exeter)
  • Make sure the artwork you use is of reasonably high quality. People are supposed to see the character through the silhouette, not heavy compression artifacting.
  • Be reasonable when choosing artwork of characters mimicking other characters. Make sure there is at least one distinguishing feature between the copy and the original. For example Kirby forms are ok, Gandrayda copying Samus is not.

It's Torgo's Late Night Highlights Delivery Service, here to let everyone know that the highlights video from the April 23rd and 30th tournaments is on the air. This one weighs in at over 9 minutes, so those of you with small bladders should relieve yourselves beforehand. Please understand.

 

Lots of people on the 23rd's tournament made for lots of highlight clips. I think I got everyone at least once; if I missed you, you can have a refund. The 200cc highlights have an added bonus that will probably thrill some and enrage others, just as planned!

 

My plan is to take a break until Sam's birthday tournament, so enjoy this one over and over in the meantime. As always, comments and constructive criticism is always welcome (whiny bitching is allowed as well, but will likely be ignored).
