Pokemon characters are at McDonalds

Being a video game collector, I pretty much will take anything that says video games. So after a lackluster day yard selling on saturday, I swung by mcds. Trying to decide between a number 1 and a number 3 (neither good for me), I spotted a pokemon sign. They are giving away the characters with a happy meal purchase. Not having a happy meal since Amanda and my first date, I figured what the heck. So I captured pikachu in my happy sack, and even though the feeling of buying a kids meal when I was clearly the one consuming it felt, well, weird. I still got something gaming related. At least the drive thru attendant didn't say "Heres your happy meal, big boy". Heres mine taking space on my desk.

A lack of news.

Sorry folks. Works been a little busy lately. Coming up though in the next few days I will be giving away a code for the halo reach banshee avatar item. Plus whatever else I can find lol.

Heres the directions for getting it: First download the app. you can browse the store or use this link: Link Here Upon opening the app. at the bottom you will see: Love Bungie. Go there... I forgot to take pics. of process but you will see 2 options: Blue flame and nameplate. Go into Blue flame and enable. Now when I got onto Reach I had a new armor message pop up. I then went into armory and into armor effects. Enable it and your done. This is what it looks like on my spartan.

Seems like the homefront group finally made good on their promise for a free premium theme. Too bad the dev studio was shut down today. You can grab the theme here: I haven't seen the theme myself. But again, free is free.

WiiU For U?

Today Nintendo announced its new console, the WiiU. My opinion, Im not impressed. I was unfortunate enough to buy into the Wii hype,even went as far a touting it “better than the xbox 360.” I still hang my head from that comment. Regardless though, my Wii has been gathering dust for the past 2 years, Why? For one there is a lack of good games. The majority of wii games are shovelware or minigames, and lacking in substance. After viewing the release video of WiiU, I cant help but not get excited. I’ve been here before. The Wii was shown and I thought “hell yeah, this is going to be awesome!!!” Only to be disappointed. The WiiU looks cool enough but does it really offer anything new? Aside from the WiiU Controller being (looking I should say) awkwardly huge. Im not seeing it really offer anything yet, in the form of revolution, to gaming. From what I’m seeing is a Wii that “may” be able to compete with current gen. systems. The WiiU offers 1080p,motion sensor controller, video chat, on

Realizing the truth and vacation

Well we are only about a month out from our vacation, and im starting to realize 2 things. 1. Im super ready for vacation. 2. I set an unrealistic goal. A few weeks ago, I said I wanted to hit 250's before the cruise. Only thing is my body said no. It seems to be comfortable in the 280-279 range because it hasnt moved at all. Its true that I havent counting calories near as close as I was, nor have I been really watching how much I am eating.  So really its my own fault. But after the wife told me this morning "you have kinda gave up" that I realized I had. Heres hoping I can hit 260's before july. Now that I am back on track.

Here's looking at you kid...
