So last weekend I found a new NSMB/Luigi deluxe set Wii U on eBay for $250 – a good deal, and since I was planning on picking one up eventually for Smash 4, Mario Kart 8, Zelda, and 3D Mario (among other games, of course), I ordered it. It arrived Thurdsay, I set it up yesterday, and I decided today to bore you all with my thoughts on it. One of the first things I noticed pulling the system out of the box was the console's length – it's longer than I'd expected, which seems kind of a weird thi
So the second Best Buy Smash Fest was today. I initially hadn't planned on going, as no Best Buy anywhere near my house was hosting it. Moreover, I was scheduled to take the ACT from eight this morning until one this afternoon. The ACT, for the record, sucked. I took the SAT back in May and found it a much more … intuitive test; I guess that's the best word for it. While the SAT constantly keeps you on your toes with twenty- and twenty-five-minute sections of math, reading, and writing, the ACT
So I've been playing Smash 4 basically nonstop since last Friday, time permitting. Absolutely love Rosalina. She's got tons of untapped potential that's been a blast to explore so far. Sheik feels incredibly strong and Ganon feels great as well. Super armor Warlock Punch is a beautiful thing. Ness is okay (lol get it); I'm trying to learn him currently. Thinking of picking up Kirby also. My FC is 0602-6264-9441. Hit me up if you want to go a few rounds.
A friend and I have been doing a randomized playthrough of Pokemon Fire Red and a couple days ago I came across this guy: Less than a day later, this: BUT I can't use either of them since it's a Nuzlocke run. AND I can't transfer them because it's on an emulator. THANKS NINTENDO
So I read The Fault in Our Stars about a month and a half ago maybe and I thought it was pretty good and whatnot. One thing that really bothered me about it, though, was the title. Minor spoilers to follow. The title is lifted from a line of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Speaking to well-respected public figure Brutus, senator Cassius states: This quote's relevance to Green's novel is explained as such within the work: This passage is presented as an e-mail from reclusive author Peter V
Last Smash Bros. Direct yesterday. Cannot believe that yet another Fire Emblem character is being added, and one from a game that's not even out yet, no less. I was pretty upset at first, but now I'm just disappointed. Corrin is the last Nintendo character to be added to Smash 4. This would've been a great opportunity to put in an iconic/classic character from Nintendo's rich history - looking at you, K Rool and Isaac - but instead they went for what's pretty much a blatant cash grab with FE F
Got this on my eleventh summer box. I actually wanted the Champion skin (ie the white version of this), but I'll take it if it means I don't have to spend the rest of the month grinding levels for loot boxes Game is Overwatch for those unaware.
So I was driving somewhere today (that is, yesterday) and American Authors' "Best Day of My Life" came on the radio. I hadn't heard the song in a while - since it hit its peak of popularity in early 2014 - but I really like it. And here's why: it's about perspective. This is gonna be the best day of my life, because I'm going to treat it like it is. And guess what? Tomorrow is also gonna be the best day of my life, and so is the day after that. If I keep my life in perspective of what's really i
Logged on today and found by complete coincidence that August 6 was the day I had joined BZPower back in 2010. Thought that was interesting. Then I looked at my last blog entry and realized that I unknowingly made that one on the sixth of August as well, two years ago. Weird. Of course as I write this it's now past midnight were I live.
So this past week Best Buy had a buy-one-get-one sale on a handful of 3DS games: Bravely Default, Mario Golf, Disney Magical World, Yoshi's New Island, Tomodachi Life, Zelda: ALBW, Mario Party, Kirby Triple Deluxe, and Pokemon X/Y. As an added bonus, the white Wii U Pro controller was on sale for $30 - $20 off its MSRP. I heard about these deals midway through the previous week, but I was out of town through this Tuesday and was decidedly too busy Wednesday and Thursday to worry about expanding
