August & September! #wow #legion #nes #segagenesis #ps4 #sonicthehedgehog

Long time no post!

Another couple months have past by and I have had quite a few pickups so onto it!

img_2117Uncharted 4 and Tomb Raider! Deep sales at Best Buy + Gamers Club discount got me both of these for $51, not bad considering how new UC4 is.

img_2158I was finally able to pick up the last starter pack at a big discount!


img_2118A few more figures from Tru sales.


img_2119World of Warcraft: Legion Collector’s Edition, a few weeks in and in my opinion this is the best expansion since Wrath of the Lich King so far!


img_2161The Frostwolf Pup plushy for my wife!


img_2160Pepe for me!


img_2156My local Tru only got a few of these in, the 25th anniversary Sonic plush. Sega needs to go back to the original fat Sonic design!


img_2122Newer World of Nintendo figures, all were %50 off at Walgreens.




img_2162From the creators of Retrogamer magazine a thorough guide to Sega hardware and games!

img_2165World of Warcraft: Ultimate Visual Guide. Really nice Blizzard WOW art book.


img_2171World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 1, fantastic book that covers the pre WOW lore of Warcraft!

Another week of Amiibo and games.

This past week has been a busy one, last weekend I made numerous stops at local game stores looking for a few games to add to my collection. Then this week I completely retooled the streaming setup in an attempt to move away from Winamp feeding the audio to Shoutcast to something more reliable and robust, I believe I have found the proper tool in Mixxx which is an open source DJ software with tons of features that I was missing before such as volume normalization and in my opinion much improved sound quality.

Please let me know if you notice any audio issues and I will investigate, now on to the games!


Unfortunately I was unable to get the limited edition New 3DS Majora’s Mask bundle even though I had pre ordered it from Best Buy, it was canceled a week later as preorder numbers exceeded the available stock. On the upside they gave me a $50 gift card for the trouble which I promptly used to preorder the regular edition.



With a New 3DS in hand I of course had to pick up the new Majora’s Mask 3D, along with it I had preordered the new Kirby and having never played any of the Walking Dead games and being a fan of the show I thought it was the proper time to start the series.



Somehow “A Link to the Past” was not apart of my collection and since no game stores near me ever have a copy I took the opportunity to grab it while it was available, along with it the remastered edition of Final Fantasy 1 & 2!




More Amiibo arrived, Rosalina took forever as one shipped from France and the other Japan with both seeing big shipping delays, thanks winter storms! The other Amiibo include Ike, Meta Knight, Lucario and King Dedede.



I was able to grab tickets for “The Legend Of Zelda Symphony Of The Goddesses” concert coming up later this year (they were selling out fast), we cannot wait.. it should be amazing!




On the gaming front I have been playing mostly MMO’s this week including WOW, Star Trek Online and Final Fantasy XIV.. they are all fantastic games in their own ways.
