Hey there! Who has any plans for this Memorial Day Weekend? Many of us will be firing up the grill and having outdoor BBQ and others will venture off to the beach or other main attraction. It's almost as if Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of Summer. My plans for this weekend is to take the family to the LA Zoo! It's been awhile since we last visited the zoo so I think it'll be a great time to check it out. Our young one is now 3 so he's old enough to enjoy checking out the animals. Who knows, maybe he'll enjoy spotting lions, snakes, alligatots, Donkey Kong. Wait... What?!?! DONKEY KONG?! YUP!!! This Memorial Day weekend, Nintendo has partnered up with the LA Zoo & Botanical Gardens to host an event! How awesome is that?! The event is taking place in the Campo Gorilla Reserve to commemorate the launch of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the Nintendo 3DS on May 24th, 2013.
Hey there. It's here! The big unveiling of the next gen Xbox console. It's not Xbox Durango, it's not Xbox Infinity. It's Xbox One! I'm sure many of you reading this have already checked some, if not all of the 2 hour presentation earlier today. I'm not going to get into the specifics. There are plenty of websites with people way smarter than me that will break down the Xbox One specs for you. I'm an average Joe that loves games. I have some curiosities about the Xbox One and I have a few thoughts that came to mind while checking out the presentation. So here are my thoughts on the Xbox One reveal.
Thank you, Shane Dickson, for buying Metallman a beer! CHEERS!
Hey there. Time to honor another awesome fan that took the time to contribute to Metallman's Reverie! The beer chosen? A Paulaner Hefe-Weizen Natural Wheat beer! Thank you, Shane Dickson! Shane is also known as the OregonSlacker and he loves himself some gaming! Make sure to check out his facebook page and check out the pictures he has of some of the gaming competitions that he's taken part in and take a glance at his pretty awesome gaming PC! Thanks for the support, my friend!
His first of what I hope is many sporting events for the boy!
Hey there. The weather is getting warmer and it's time to get the kids outside and have them play some sports! I'm glad to see that the kids are FINALLY beginning to show more interest in sports. Especially my oldest. He's an athletic guy and I've been waiting for him to decide that he is ready to start playing. I don't want to be one of those overbearing parents that dictate their kid's hobbies. I let him be and when he's ready, he's ready. He can play baseball, football, and basketball and he seems more suited for baseball or basketball. Come to think of it... he can even do track too! He's expressed much interest in running as well! Almost forgot about that one! lol I say that the boy (14 yrs) will do in anything that he puts his mind in. I'm sure that once he's in high school, he'll make that final decision, but until now, we'll play basketball and we'll go out and throw the baseball around. We end up throwing the baseball more than anything else, actually, and I think he's beginning to find his sport.
