I started this week by buying my very first* amiibo: Pac-Man. I couldn’t help it. I’ve been a Pac-fan since I was a young child, and there’s just something about the way he appeared in Super Smash Bros that perfectly captured that old-school, more retro look and feel for Namco’s most famous creation. So, when I saw how awesome his amiibo self was, I couldn’t resist.
Today, I was reminded of Pac-Man again, thanks to the Ray’s news story about the first batch of games to be introduced into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. With so much Pac on the brain this week, it’s been decided: I’m going to go back to something Pac-related this weekend during my free gaming time. Probably the original Pac-Man Championship Edition, which still holds a special place in my heart to this day. I’m sure I’ve dropped a way from my previously high placement on the Xbox Live leaderboards, so maybe it’s time I try to brush up on my skills again.
