Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D at the Los Angeles Zoo Nintendo Event

Oh yeah!  I'm there for the event!!!
Hey there.  Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and it was a time of remembrance.  Many of us spent the day out with our families and gave thanks to those brave men and women of the United States Military that gave everything they had to protect the freedoms that this great nation believes in. Many of us celebrated by enjoying that freedom by enjoying it with our families.  I spent Memorial Day weekend with my family as well.  But I also spent it with Nintendo.  How so?  Well, this Memorial Day weekend, the great people at Nintendo offered my family and I a press pass to enjoy the LA Zoo AND meet Donkey Kong!  How awesome is that?!

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Sequel Announced

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past sequel has been announced!!!
Hey there!  Did you guys catch this morning's special announcement on Nintendo Direct?  No?!  Then you missed out!  This mornings direct video announced that a NEW Legend of Zelda game will be released this "holiday season" for Nintendo 3DS and it will take place in the same universe as A Link to the Past!  How awesome is that?!  A Link to the Past is one of my all time favorite SNES games and it's definitely the first Zelda game that I felt emotionally invested in.  I'm extremely exciting knowing that a second game set in that universe will be heading to the Nintendo 3DS!

Get a Life Podcast Ep. 7 - The One with Video Game Adventures and Gateway Video Games

Hey there.  Ready for another episode of the Get a Life Podcast?  Awesome!  In this episode, Brian and I discuss our video game adventures.  Gaming has seemingly slipped into our everyday lives and occurs even when NOT gaming.  lol  Also, we touch base on that one gateway video game that molded us into the gamers that we are today.

During our show, we posed the question, "What kind of video game adventures have you had in real life?"  Let's hear it in the comments, friends!  Also, we mentioned one of our favorite charities on our show, the Child's Play Charity, and if you are interested in donating or simply looking for more information, please make sure to check out their website at  Over $5 million was donated to the organization in 2012 and it would be awesome if 2013 brought that and more for kids in need.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Giveaway

Hey there.  Who's ready for a game giveaway?  I've been a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series since I was first introduced to it by a good friend of mine.  I remember playing Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest on the SNES (I know... not a great installment of the series) and I payed no more attention to it after I finished it, but once my friend handed me Final Fantasy 7, my mind was blown.  I was up all hours of the night trying to find out what happens to Cloud and Sephiroth.  Ever since that day, I've gone out and searched for all the Final Fantasy installments and played them.  I've finished pretty much all of them except for the PSP games.  Anyways, as I was thinking about what game to give away, I decided that a Final Fantasy game was in order and I decided to give you the chance to win the latest in the series:  Final Fantasy XIII-2.

I enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII-2.  I love the battle system.  I love the monster training aspect of it.  It is a relatively short game considering that the series owns some games where you can easily log over 100 hours playing.  I think that at this point, many fans either love it or hate it.  I strongly believe it's because we grew up with some of the best games in the series.  For all of you that are still iffy about it and don't want to pay for it, enter to win the game for the PS3 or Xbox 360!

The giveaway will run from now until August 20th.  Anyone can enter, but the game prize is only available for US entries.  An Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to our International winner in lieu of the game.  Good luck, friends!

This giveaway is brought to you in part by my good friends at Zombie & Toys and Chic Girl.  Make sure to stop by and check them out for awesome zombie stuff and trendy fashion!

Can wait to see if you've won?  You can get Final Fantasy XIII-2 at Amazon!
