Gaming Sleepover Heaven

21 Jul

My favorite activity growing up was weekend sleepovers with friends. Staying up late, eating tons of junk and playing video games for hours on end was an awesome way to spend a night with your buddies from school. But now, as a married couple and full time students it seems as though those fun filled nights are over. Or are they??

get all those sexual innuendos out of your heads now … dirty minds.

Welcome to the Family, Xbox!

6 Jul

We’ve been holding out for a while on the buying an Xbox front. Trying to justify yet another console has been tough, but eventually my need to collect and Tony’s curiosity won over the logical portions of our brains. We were waiting for a sale in order to get both the Kinect and system for around 240, so when Best Buy had a sale we couldn’t resist!

FFWWEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

gaming, gaming everywhere!

27 Jun

Even though we brought our Playstation, Nintendo DS, and computer stacked with PC games on our trip, Tony and I both still feel like we’ve been falling behind in our geekiness outlet. Disconnecting for a little while has been great, but I still have fallen behind in my daily Twitter and Facebook checking, as well as internet browsing of new reviews, comic book sales, and new movie trailers.

everything is incredible … if only there was wifi!

Assassins Creed Climbing is Totally Realistic

18 Jun

So I’ve been playing Assassins Creed a lot lately.

In Europe playing PS3 – I’ve got quite a double chin for a skinny guy.

And I’ve been thinking… man, Ezio makes that shit look so easy. Climbing walls? Yeah right, like there are that many ledges and little things to grab.

But here I am in Europe, and yeah, it really does look like that. So I had to try it myself…

In Europe, Still Gaming – Part 1

10 Jun

So we’re in Europe on vacation, visiting Ceratopz parents in Belgium – and of course, we’re hitting as much of this place as we can while we’re here. So far, it’s been awesome

– for example, Brussels:

chillin in Brussels, having a beer in the grande place

But between our little day or two excursions to awesome European towns, we are having a bit of down time at her parents house. So, what did we bring with us?

oh Mordin!

21 May

It’s been a little while since we posted here, and I’m blaming it on (FINALLY) getting some half decent weather around here and the fact that it has been a long weekend. Happy birthday Queen Victoria!

I googled queen and nerd and Felicia Day came up, so she’s going in.

I love me some “freebies”

17 May

I’m such a sucker for discounts and free things. When a thing I’ve never heard of or wanted goes on sale for 50% off or more (!!!!!!!) I have to fight the urge to buy it. Lately, my biggest struggle has been with free bonuses for buying things. I feel so lucky getting something that just can’t be bought in stores, or getting more for less. Just a couple days ago I almost ordered Prototype 2 because it was A) 20.00 off and B) came with a free steelbook and figurine of the main dude. I didn’t want it before, but I sure do want it now!

free things that I do not need! I need them!
