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!)

Amazon Prime Members Now Get 20% Off on Pre-Orders and New Releases on Video Games

Hey there.  "There's more to Priiiiiiiiime!!!"  We've seen the commercials, right guys?  I must have seen that Amazon Prime commercial about 10 times yesterday while watching TV.  Though Amazon has been pushing to get consumers to buy in on their Prime services, I believe that now they finally translating into significant dollars and cents.  Rejoice, fellow video game afficionados!!!  Amazon Prime members now get 20% off on all pre-release orders on video games!  Also, if you buy a game within 2 weeks of it's release date, you'll still get 20% off!  How freakin' awesome is that?!

Ganondorf Confirmed as a Playable Character in Hyrule Warriors

Ganondorf in Hyrule Warriors
Hey there.  Hyrule Warriors is really bringing on the hype!  Our first real glimpse at a Zelda game for the Wii U has many fans excited, and for good reason too.  Even though the game is a spin off of The Legend of Zelda series, it's enough to quench our thirst while we wait for an actual adventure starring Link on the Wii U.  Nintendo has been feeding us screenshots and video of many of the announced playable characters of Hyrule Warriors, but none has grabbed my attention as Ganondorf has.  Just look at this beast!

Submit Your The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Fan Art and Win a Wii U

Hey there. Did you guys know that there is a symphony going around playing The Legend of Zelda music? It's pretty damn cool and I was soooooo disappointed when I was not able to score tickets to see it live when the symphony was in Los Angeles. I love The Legend of Zelda series and I indulge in classical music from time to time so to have The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses come to town, I just needed to be there! *sigh* But it wasn't meant to be... But you know what... THEY'RE BACK! Another tour will be starting soon and Nintendo is inviting fans to be a part of the symphony's tour! How? By submitting The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD fan art! Nintendo plans on kicking off a contest later today on the  Nintendo Facebook page where you can submit your fan art. 5 winners will win a Wii-U console as well as The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD game. But that's not all, friends! On Sept. 12th, the 5 winners (as well as the top 50 finalists) will have their art displayed at the lobby of the venue where The Symphony of the Goddesses is playing! How awesome is that?!

Enter to Win The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia OR The Art of Bioshock Infinite

WIN THIS!!!
Hey there! It's time for another giveaway!  We had quite a bit of success of the "choosing of the prize" that I decided we're going to have another one in similar fashion.  The last giveaway allowed the winner to choose between 2 prizes, a game or a book, and ultimately, the winner chose the game.  But... there were many entries asking for the book so this time around, the winner WILL win a book.  Which book, you ask?  Well... How about The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia OR The Art of Bioshock Infinite!

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!

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!

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 ChildsPlayCharity.org.  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.
