My 100th post! Mega Man 11 was released today and I’m super excited! I’ll definitely pick it up this week as the $40 dollar price tag is fair… and I’ll actually play the thing! I’ll do a review of it in the weeks to come. The boss robot masters look great, huge, and intimidating. I can’t wait to destroy them! This doesn’t pose as great news for the newly acquired Mighty No. 9 however. It will go on the back burner, but I WILL play it!
This past Saturday, a few friends came over for our first “Alien Isolation No Gurlz Allowed Sausage Party”. The wife was out of town, and this was the perfect opportunity to engage a horrific Xenomorph… and terrify me it did! I’m sure the Sega Dude will be posting an unflattering video of me playing the game and getting cornered by an Alien. I screamed just before it tore me apart. It’s been over a decade since I’ve screamed in panic like that and unbeknownst to me it was filmed which I’m sure the Sega Dude will post on his site in the near future. In my defense however, how can you not scream when you are being hunted by an Alien?! I can’t remember if we made it to the fifth or sixth mission, but we plan on getting together again this Friday to advance further into the game.
In other news, Nintendo successfully sued a company called MariCAR in Japan that was renting Mario Kart costumes and go-carts to people (mostly tourists). You can read the article here. Or not, I pretty much summed it up.
As mentioned in my earlier post, I have a lot of things that are really bugging me lately and even though this is a video game hunting blog, I’m running out of ideas. There just isn’t really much to find on the cheap in terms of thrift stores, Kijiji, garage sales, and certainly not Ebay. The days of possibly finding Little Sampson for an awesome deal are long over unfortunately. As such, I’m opening up a new department on My Nintendo Dimension aptly named “Joe’s Grievances”. Here is today’s issue:
I was listening to the morning show on Q107 while driving into work, and one of the hosts (Ryan Parker) said he has been on Tinder app the for a while and is finding it hard to find dates as most women aren’t interested in dudes under 5’9. I bet he’s right, and I stand at a measly 5’7 with my Doc Martins on, I guess I would still be having a hard time finding a date! This is even weirder as my parents are both taller than average. One could argue that my mom got “friendly” with the mail man, but this theory is debunked as besides the hair colour, I look exactly like my old man. This sucks! I am happily married to a woman who apparently has a shorty fetish, so it isn’t really an issue, but it’s more the principle of it all.
SEGA Corner: Sega makes Alien Isolation (see above) so that’s the news for today.
Next week we will be discussing what ever happened to the game swap in Waterloo which was put on by Video Game Collectors Community (VGCC).
Until next time,
