Weekend gaming: The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords & Majora's Mask plus Borderlands 2

Two zelda titles at the same time? Madness!!! Playing both Four Swords Anniversary and Majora's Mask. Toss in a little Borderlands 2 to round things out and I'd say I've got my hands full. On with it already!

Plastic Pickups: LEGO IDeas EXO SUIT (21109)

I finally got my hands on the LEGO Ideas EXO SUIT (set 21109).  I had been searching high and low ever since the Exo Suit hit stores on August 1st, 2014, and only after repeated calls/visits to the LEGO store was I able to score one for myself. Now that I've got it, time to build it!

Weekend Gaming: Zelda II The Adventure of Link (3DS) & Defiance (PS3)

I had two games in rotation this past week - though one much more heavily than the other. I finished up revisiting Link's 1988 Adventure on my 3DS, and set out with for some free-to-play MMOFPS-something-or-other with Defiance on PS3. Good times... mostly...

Some hands on time with Mario Kart 8 and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD has given me an itch to pick up my own WiiU. This has left me debating on whether or not a WiiU is worth it for me. Lets break it all down, shall we.

Plastic Pickups: eBay Edition - Round 2


Sigh... Someone needs to come over and take eBay away from me. I've been spending too much time aimlessly cruising toy listings, casting bids out like a net to see what I can catch. Most bids come up short, but occasionally I score a win or two. Here's a list my latest batch of 'wins'.

Weekend Gaming: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link


I've been craving some Zelda adventuring, so I downloaded Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on my Nintendo 3DS for a fiver. This was the first video game I ever waited on-line for and I have very fond memories of tearing through it as a kid.

I thought it might be fun to revisit The Adventure of Link again, but it wasn't before long that I realized I have a very selective memory when it comes to Link's sophomore effort.

Weekend Gaming: Titanfall, Gears of War 3

I'm not going to lie, I miss Destiny. The beta got me hooked, and Bungie snatched it away leaving me to suffer through Destiny withdrawals. Alas, September will be here soon enough. Thankfully, I've got plenty of games to take my mind off of Destiny until then.
