11/21/2014 Nintendo Day

Click the TWC button and vote to see this week's Blooper Reel strip.

Well, if there was a Nintendo Day it might as well be today. I'm not entirely sure if launching Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Smash Bros. WiiU, and the first set of Amiibo figures on the same day was the best strategy or not from a marketing perspective, but it's going to keep a lot of people playing Nintendo games for the rest of the year. It also makes it that much harder for me to decide what to play next...

Anyway, I ended up going to the midnight launch for all of the above, so I'm going to cut this short and get some sleep.

Have a good weekend!

11/19/2014 Family

My parents got in yesterday to spend the winter here in Hawaii. While I like having them around, it's going to be kind of weird. In the past, I always lived with them or very far away (in a different state or, at times, a different country). Having them living half an hour away is a very different dynamic and is going to take some getting used to.

In other news, my schedule is calming down a lot, which means more time to work on side projects, have some fun, and maybe try and make some friends in the area. So yeah, things are (for the most part) going pretty well.

I've got some restaurant reviews and another travelogue entry or two planned, but for now it's getting kind of late. Maybe Friday.

11/17/2014 More heroes

I saw Big Hero 6 yesterday. How many super hero movies does that make this year? Let's see, there was Captain America Winter Soldier, X-Men Days of Future Past, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Amazing Spider Man 2. I think that was all of them, though I also watched some others on Blu-ray and then there's the TV shows like Agents of Shield and The Flash (just to name a couple). It's kind of crazy how popular super hero movies have gotten these days. Gotta wonder how long their current run of popularity will continue, since these things tend to be kind of cyclical. But, for now, most of them are actually really good, so I'm not going to complain. Well, maybe about how they can never seem to get Superman right... But anyway, Big Hero 6. It's pretty awesome, part Disney, part Iron Man, and maybe a little bit of Shonen anime/manga. Whether you're a super hero fan or a Disney fan, you'll find something to like.

Later!
