Oh my child, I owned the Amiibos well before Splatoon 3 was even announced. And while not a thermos, I did own water bottle once, though sadly it was not dishwasher safe and died.

Ahha. So you don't have the NEW limited Amiibos that are a repackaging but otherwise identical to the ones you already own. And $35 more expensive!
You're practically bankrupting them.

I'll allow this mistake if you have some hastily made fan art or knock off merch. although I will understand if you choose not to share this fact online in fear of the Ninja Lawyer Hitmen Squad.

The biggest problem with Splatoon is that the series launched on wiiu, so only 5 people ever played it.

Does it count if I made the fan art in Splatoon using the post box?

I think that's too good, but I think it does count.

You've avoided my scorn* and the Ninja Lawyer Hitmen Squad this time!

* I mean the word scorn, not the game. And you shouldn't avoid the game scorn.

Red Dead Redemption 2 (Steam)
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 (Epic)

I have over 300 games from Epic and that's the first one I've paid money for. It's 60% off plus there's a 25% holiday coupon, so it's a decent price.

I finished THPS1+2 on Xbox but did the same thing during a similar sale last year. I think I've bought 3 games on Epic: Tetris Effect, THPS and World War Z. The rest are all freebies

If it was on Steam, I would have paid more for it on there. Epic is OK but Steam is still better. It doesn't look like TH will be showing up on Steam though.

I bought my second Epic game yesterday with Dragon Quest XI S. It was priced the same as Steam, but the coupon made it even cheaper. I regretted my decision, though, because modding the game was more complicated than the Steam version.

Got an 8BitDo M30 gamepad.

Very comfortable, can be used wired or Bluetooth, and I also got the phone-holding clip. It was actually cheaper here in Huezil than in any US store, and the clip was bundled rather than sold separately. Really a good deal.

Grabbed a Gamesir X2 from Amazon. Came out to about AU$84ish with some gift cards I had from work. Crappy AUD didn't help things but for $80 I'm happy with it so far
