It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)
I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.
You can order the Amiibo Retro 3-Pack now.

Maybe next week she will turn other Nes games into coasters or bookcases.

As with the Microsoft conference before it, I was confined to my hotel Wi-Fi to take in Nintendo’s E3 press conference. But, unlike Microsoft’s, I’m walking away thoroughly and utterly disappointed. I’m going to go ahead and spoil part of the full story from after the break: there was no mention of Smash Bros. being online. Me = worried much.
Set your expectations low before you view the rest after the break.
