Yes, I took him out of the packaging because playing with packages is lame.

Video games aren’t in the top five interests of mine at the moment, but they are picking up steam after almost a decade of being on the sidelines. I hope to play them with my kids when they reach minimum acceptable hand-eye coordination.

Nostalgia grips me hard and although you are just as likely to catch me yelling at kids to get out of my garden or struggling to articulate how parents shouldn’t have to be within five feet of their children at all times, neither of those things have figurines.

Now is not the time or place to talk about my love affair with Final Fantasy 7. I am just happy I found this Cloud Strife Amiibo to put on my CD shelf. He may even get taken to work to protect my office from ill-tempered patients!
