Where have I been and what have I been up to?

Nintendo, Uncategorized

Busy with life and a broad range of gaming, I recently went back to complete games that I skipped or simply had not finished. I purchased a PS3 and a 3DS XL and have enjoyed both quite a bit in the short time that I have owned them.

Some of the games that I am working on or recently completed include New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Uncharted (Finished), and New Super Mario Bros. DS (Finished).

I also recently purchased the following games,


  • Uncharted
  • Uncharted 2
  • Uncharted 3
  • Heavy Rain
  • Final Fantasy XIII
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Sonic Generations
  • Resistance 3


  • Donkey Kong Country Returns
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Kid Icarus Uprising


On the classic gaming front I have been stuck trying to locate the right copy of Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, I will hopefully pick up a copy soon which will wrap up that series sans BMX Trials.

I hope to finish going through the SNES tracks this weekend and get those added back to the stream!

As you can see I have quite a way to go and the above hardly includes everything on my wish list, slow but steady progress is being made. Sadly I have not had much time to actually play console games as of late but in the past few months I did play and beat Wonder Boy and enjoyed it quite a bit. I am also about 3/4 of the way through Sonic the Hedgehog which is quite a break from the Genesis games but still very solid on it’s own.

I hope to start checking out the rest of the arrivals within the next couple weeks, should be fun!
