Friday! Video games! Let's talk! My family and I are starting to plan our cross-country move, so the weekend (and every weekend thereafter until October) will likely be spent going through our stuff in an attempt to downsize what we have to take with us. There are three of us and three cats living in … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Aside from the world as we know it taking a giant dump on itself, I've just been slammed with an absurdly expensive truck repair. Mind you, this comes less than two months after the last repair, which was $1,600.00. I'm... not happy. At all. I need to unwind this weekend, and what better way to accomplish … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
Four in February is an annual gaming event that encourages people to focus on their backlog, rather than spend money on new games. The objective, as the name implies, is to pick four games from the ol' backlog and complete them before the end of the month. This is something I look forward to participating in every … Continue reading Let’s Get Prepped for Four in February!
Now that I've had a few days to digest the recent Nintendo Switch presentation, I'd like to discuss its ups and downs as a core console gamer. One that grew up playing NES and SNES, felt a little burned by the Wii U, and wants nothing more than The Big N to return to form … Continue reading Nintendo Remains Innovative, Imaginative, and Out of Touch with the Switch
Move over, LightningEllen! I just picked up the new Ocarina of Time Link amiibo, making it my 7th on display! Aside from Ocarina Link, I now own Ryu, Pikachu, Gold Mega Man, the Callie and Marie Splatoon two-pack, and Wolf Link. MUCH COLLECTION! /sarcasm ...I'll never catch up to Ellen. Ever.

I think my issue was the lack of organization, and I'm not sure if Nintendo or Best Buy is to blame. Our local event in Glen Burnie, MD also fell victim to the Microsoft sales team. While we were there, some asshole in a white Microsoft shirt kept shouting stuff like "You're looking at the … Continue reading Nintendo Experience a little disappointing, but definitely sold me on Mario Kart 8 & Wind Waker HD.
It was asses to elbows yesterday at the local Best Buy while my roommate and his girlfriend made their way to check out the latest E3 demos from Nintendo. Sadly, I won't be going until Saturday, but here is a bit of a heads up for anyone else venturing to Best Buy this weekend, courtesy … Continue reading E3 Nintendo Experience Experienced in Glen Burnie, MD.
I waited so long to finally make use of the Wii's virtual console, and I've had a Wii since the year it released. I know, I know, shame on me. Picked up Metroid & The Legend of Zelda for the NES, A Link to the Past and Super Metroid for the SNES, and Ocarina of … Continue reading First time using the Wii’s virtual console opened the floodgates.
Zelda. I fucking love it. I still remember begging my parents to get me the original Legend of Zelda on the NES for Easter. Seriously, what little brat asks for a video game on Easter? This guy! We all know that the Zelda theme is timeless and since its inception, the franchise has put forth … Continue reading The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses 2013 Tour Dates
