Stuff That Sucks: The Amiibo Hunt Hits the Big Apple

Greg's neverending search for Amiibo has taken him to the Nintendo World Store in New York for this week's Stuff That Sucks.


The Shacknews staff took a trip to New Jersey over the weekend for a little team building. While in the area, the staffers had a chance to check out the sites across the great state of New Jersey and neighboring New York.

For Greg, it provided the opportunity to hit the Nintendo World Store in his continuing hunt for Amiibo. The results of his hunt lead into this week's Stuff That Sucks.

        I like to think this was something like a Series Finale of the Amiibo hunts. Once you've traveled 3000 miles and turned up short, it's hard to top. Assuming Greg doesn't get mauled to death by bears while hunting Amiibos, and captures it all on video, this one seems like a good video to put his quest to bed.

          He could have gone all the way to Japan and came up empty handed.

      Lionel Ritchie never spoke truer words.

      Look into the underground amiibo markets and high roller amiibo fight clubs.

      Just wanted to say something against all the hate this video is getting- I LOVE these videos. Good to know I'm not alone out there as an amiibo fan/hunter. I don't care if this continues to be part of 'Stuff That Sucks", or a separate series, but I'm all for more of these videos. Hopefully Nintendo is watching.

      Too many amiibo sux eps. Plenty of other things suck too: Mortal Kombat X bug doesn't let some of us play online, Vita controls don't line up with PS4 controls when streaming thus its useless for some games, Destiny grinding sucks, etc.
