It has been so long…

It has been a while since my last post, I am still playing games and collecting as always but holidays, busy season at work and a combination of newfound family and others who have moved much closer have kept our family occupied. My brother now lives close by so the long-promised podcast may see the light of day in the coming months, I am excited about this!

I also found technical issue getting in the way of my updates, my iPhone X is on the latest revision of IOS which uses a high efficiency or HEIF image format, unfortunately for me, I found that my Mac which is still running El Capitan to be incompatible with the format. ./facepalm

But now that I have worked around that kerfuffle, I wanted to get another post up with my acquisitions since the last post, many from around Christmas time. You will see a heavy Nintendo influence as the Switch continues to knock the releases out of the park, Monster Boy amongst those being one of my favorites. So difficult!!

amiibo and Totaku continue to keep trickling in, amiibo are “easy mode” for collecting these days but Totaku is worse than they were in every way, no release dates and constant delays make collecting these more hassle than they are worth in my opinion which is why I will bow out of things shortly unless a particular figure catches my eye. That said, given Gamestops financial issues might the series be doomed for cancellation?

On the streaming front my interest in micro computers, specifically the Raspberry Pi will send me down the road of using that as my platform of choice for my streaming needs, the combination of Volumio and Cherry Music should be the perfect combination for what I do, my current Pi setup using Pihole has been amazing for network wide ad blocking so looking forward to this next low power computing project!

June – 2018

Another delayed post, what can I say? Lots of games being played and movies being watched as of late.

Current games on my playlist include,

  • Kingdom Hearts 1.5 – PS4
  • Forza Horizon 3 – PC/Xbox One
  • World of Warcraft: Legion – PC

Picked up this HD remake so that I can work on 1 & 2 before 3 releases next year. As a huge fan of both Square & Disney, these games are a perfect match for me.

Everything Toad & Toadette is amazing and loved in our house, this is a remake sure but with extra stages and an upgrade in graphics from 720P to 1080P, this amazingly fun and creative game was a must.

If a love for Toadette needed further proof this is the set of pictures hanging in our game room next to my wives computer desk, if you love the style the set and others like it can be purchased at the following Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1423673102

The latest amiibo releases include both Pearl and Marina from Splatoon 2!

The latest Totaku releases and the one I missed at launch including Hunter, Lemmings, Watcher & the AG-SYS.

A batch of Disney movies to round things out, we recently joined the Disney Movie Club so that we can get caught up on all of the Disney classics and some of the newer hits that we enjoy.

You can get 5 movies for $1 and have 2 years to complete the membership requirements. With Disney’s lineup of movies along with Marvel and Star Wars franchises available it was a great deal for us. If interested in the 5 movies for $1.00 deal please use the following link, http://fbuy.me/jinrQ

Disclaimer: I get 2-movies for each signup using the link so make sure you ask me any questions you may have and read up on the details.
