Time Crash at Midwest Media Expo 2015

At Midwest Media Expo, we were treated to see a wonderful band that really stood out to us. They were part of the concert we saw following the Harp Twins and before Steam Powered Giraffe. Time Crash is comprised of Ronen Kohn on vocals and guitar, Dave Kitsberg on his custom built GuiTARDIS and vocals, Michael Fye on bass and vocals, Andrew Rice on drums, and Christopher Rice on Steel Guitar/Tricone. Inspired by Doctor Who, this group rocked out Midwest Media Expo! The energy they displayed in their show was phenomenal and really showed they loved what they played. They encouraged the crowd to come in front of the stage and enjoy the show and even did a very energetic cover of “500 Miles” which the crowd was really into. During the concert we caught on Friday, they were joined by Matt Sernaker of Random Gibberish, and they also had the pleasure of being joined by Ellen McLain (voice of GlaDOS) to perform “Still Alive” during their concert on Saturday. Time Crash has already released an EP called Little Amelia and their full-length album REGENERATION. Continue reading…

Nintendo Apologizes for Amiibo Shortages.

150310amiibowave4

Nintendo knows that Amiibo are scarce, and if their social media is trustworthy at all, they’re working on it. On a recent Nintendo facebook post:

“We appreciate the enthusiasm that our fans continue to show toward amiibo. Sales for the product have exceeded our expectations. We understand how frustrating it can be at times if consumers are unable to find certain figures, and we apologize for that.
We’re trying to meet the demands of our fans and consumers by increasing the amount of amiibo we manufacture and ship to retail. We may continue to see consumer demand outpace supply levels for certain characters at times, but we will do our best to prevent that from happening.

As our library of amiibo continues to grow, some figures will be easier to find than others. We are constantly looking for the opportunity to reissue amiibo and are already making plans to bring back some currently out-of-stock amiibo figures. Stay tuned for details.

Nintendo plans to make it easier for consumers to know when new amiibo are on the way, through Nintendo press announcements, timely updates on our social media channels and working closely with retailers.

We remain committed to keeping amiibo affordable and easy to access as a platform to enhance game-play experiences. These plans include Animal Crossing amiibo cards that will become available by the end of 2015, and a free-to-download app for Wii U called amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits that launched on April 30, 2015, that lets consumers enjoy playable scenes from certain NES and Super NES games with amiibo.”

It’s obvious Nintendo knows of the problem, but we’ll see if they can follow through with their promise.
