Reasons To Be A Gamer

Gaming

Gaming is a very popular activity, with over 1.2 billion worldwide regular gamers making up the community. Some choose to play their games online, while more than half of all games will play on PC to play their favorite games, and others who chose to use their games consoles.

Games come with adventure, competition through leveling up, the creation of stories and new worlds, and the earworms from the music that come with them.

If you grew up with Super Mario, Zelda, Crash Bandicoot, and Tomb Raider, you know the sense of adventure that comes with them. So, as well as the nostalgic feelings that leave a gamer enthralled by them, there are many more benefits to sitting down and playing a game (or 2, or 3 or...you get the idea!)

Super Kid Cannon by SkyJoy Interactive Game Trailer

Hey there.  Tired of the same old platform games.  Run to the right, jump on stuff, get powerups, and do it again for another 30 or so levels.  Don't get me wrong, some of them are down right fun and or perfect for introducing a new generation into gaming.  But what about us seasoned gamers?  What if we are looking for a something a little different from our platform games?  Well, our friends at SkyJoy Interactive asked themselves that question and created one hell of a platform game for your mobile devices in Super Kid Cannon.  It has it all:  it's free to play, it's fast paced, it's action packed, and it's family friendly.  But here's what makes Super Kid Cannon unique...  instead of going horizontal, this adventure takes you vertical.  In what can only be described as a "vertical launcher", Super Kid Cannon has you jumping from cannon to cannon, blasting your way to the top to save the damsel in distress.  Here's a brief description of the game:

Hey there. It's that time again! November is here! You know what that means?! Holiday shopping officially begins! Now, I speak from experience, it's best to shop early and avoid the monstrous lines.

They have put together a strong holiday line up that has gone under the radar and I'm here to shed a little more light on it!

The Return of Mega Man

It hurts to see you this way, Mega Man.
Hey there.  See that above comic strip?  That comic strip hit home when I first saw it.  I damn near teared up.  For those of you that do not get the reference, that's Mario in the limo calling Masahiro Sukarai, the designer of the Super Smash Bros. franchise, to ask for a favor to help out an old friend.  It's one touching comic.  Subtle, yet powerful.  Also, it's very appropriate.  Mega Man was one of those NES titles that helped launch Nintendo into the video game world.  I've played all of the the Mega Man games on the early Nintendo platforms.  They were awesome, they were engaging, and most of all, they I felt a sense of pride when completing the games.  For whatever reason, Capcom and Mega Man parted ways with Nintendo and I strongly believe that was a huge mistake on Capcom's part.  Mega Man had games, such as Mega Man Legends, but they weren't the same.  Soon, before you knew it... the Blue Bomber was forgotten.  Left on the way side.  That is... until now.

February 12th is Pancake Day

Hey there.  Did you guys know that Feb. 12th is Pancake Day?!?!  As I was going about my daily business, I noticed that there was a lot of emphasis put on pancakes.  I thought to myself, well... maybe today people finally realized how awesome pancakes are and decided to show the world!  I mean, c'mon... pancakes are the perfect breakfast food.  When the family and I decide to have breakfast at a restarant, it doesn't matter where, I will order pancakes.  I love them that much.  But I must admit... I missed out on the Pancake Day fun.  I would have loved to have made pancakes for the family, or head on over to a local restaurant for some pancakes for dinner!  Hey!  Pancakes are great anytime of day.  Don't judge me!  lol  Anyways, I missed out yesterday.  But you know what... I don't need wait until next year for some pancake fun!

Free Downloadable Gold Classics Pack for the New Super Mario Bros. 2 Game for the Nintendo 3DS

Hey there. Do you have the New Super Mario Bros 2 game for the Nintendo 3DS?  If so, you are one of the many gamers that have collectively amassed over 300 billion in gold coins.  300  BILLION!!!  To celebrate, Nintendo is giving owners of the game a free pack of coin rush courses to be included with the FREE Gold Classics Pack.  Well... free for a limited time.  The Gold Classics Pack was inspired by Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros 3 and will offer 3 new coin rush courses.

I love how Nintendo takes care of it's own.  Fans have always backed up Super Mario and Luigi and by giving away a free downloadable pack of courses to those loyal fans is freakin' awesome!  If you are not so sure how to download the Gold Classics Pack, you can go to the official New Super Mario Bros 2 site and get instructions straight from the source.  The Gold Classics Pack will be free from now until 1/31/13.  As of 2/1/13, the Gold Classics Pack can be downloaded for $2.50.   Thanks, Nintendo, for the free stuff!  I, and your loyal fans, greatly appreciate it!

So... how many coins have you collected in New Super Mario Bros. 2?  I'm dying to know if any of you have collected more than I!  Later!
