New Blog Feature & How Ultima VII Part 2 Is Kicking My Ass

I have decided to keep track of what I am playing and how well I am doing.

The past week has been all about Hyrule Warriors Legends on the 3DS. I have never played any of the Dynasty Warriors games before until I bought Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U. I enjoyed it but never got the chance to play it since Little Wyatt hogs the Wii U. The 3DS version is really close to the original and is a great pick up, play for 5 minutes, put down kind of game. I needed something like this for a while now. I’m still not 100% sure what I am doing or supposed to do but I’m having a lot of fun doing it. I’ve focused on Adventure mode and have only completed the first area in Legend mode.

When I do get on the Wii U I am playing Twilight Princess HD. This has always been one of my favorite Zelda games and the remastered version is beautiful. I just finished the first dungeon and am heading to the 2nd area.

On the PC I have started playing Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent Isle. Waiting so long to start back was a stupid move on my part as I have had to spend a couple of days figuring out where I was at and what I had already accomplished. I just completed the quests in the Sleeping Boar Inn and started searching for the mint to free Captain Hawk. I had to read a walkthrough to figure out where I was and what I had already accomplished. I’m devoting an hour or two a night until I win this game.
I am playing the GOG.com version and not Exult this playthrough to keep it original and because I secretly hate myself.

I am really stupid

I have lost my mind. I am in the process of rearranging my room again. At least this time I have a good reason. I am building a new desk to accommodate my monitor setup and to give Jenni room for her papers when she is working. There is even going to room for my electronic repairs.

I decided to start by boxing up all of my games, consoles, books, toys, etc. When I have the furniture arranged, I will catalog each item as it goes on a shelf. I realize this is going to take a couple of months but the payout will be worth it. I will have a database with an entry of each item including title, type, system, year, notes, picture, and more. This will all be searchable on this site, Why am I doing this? Because I am tired of buying games I already own or passing on ones that I think I own.

I will take down all the photo galleries and put up new ones with links to their database entry. My goal is to have this done by March 2016.

I have a Colecovision

I have waited 32 years to own one of these. Whenever my parents took me and my sister shopping my favorite thing to do was find the electronics section and drool. Sam Solomon’s was the greatest store as there were multiple consoles hooked up and ready to play. It was there that I discovered the Colecovision. I fell in love instantly, playing Donkey Kong & Smurfs while my folks shopped. The graphics were so much better than the Atari and the Intellevision. There was a rollerball controller, a racing controller, an attachment to play Atari 2600 games, and it could hook up to the ADAM computer.

Funny side note, I only have one game for it, GORF. When I cut it on today it turned out to be Donkey Kong Jr. My only guess is that the original owner swapped them out because the DK Jr case broke.
