I'm definitely getting really excited!!!

I just pre-ordered a copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for Savannah and I. I am definitely excited about this however I should probably finish The Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks and Skyward Sword! At least I have a few months to do so! 🎮

I've been working hard on putting together MyVideoGameList.com v2 this weekend. Currently we have a new theme and we've got a really awesome looking admin dashboard which is going to be MUCH better then the current one we have. For now feel free to enjoy some screenshots. A lot of code and time still needs to be put into this, but I have a feeling you're all really going to like this project and site when it's complete and working. We've got a few new features planned and hopefully a lot of fixes to issues we've been having.











Now that I'm all moved into our new house I finally have some more time to dedicated to this project! I am hoping to have it in a usable state within the next 2-3 weeks so I can invite people in to try it out and allow people to beta test and report issues back.

I've decided to start a new private World of Warcraft server. It'll be running up to Wrath of the Lich King and open to all. Hopefully within the next 2 weeks I'll have it all running!

This definitely looks like an awesome game. I think the next game I am going to play through will be Final Fantasy XII on Playstation 2. I just never got around to working on it, but I think Final Fantasy definitely needs some attention! As for the above video there's been some controversy over what's being said at the ~1:50 mark. I personally clearly here 'fuzzball', however other people claim to here something else, something a bit more explicit.

I'd also love to play through Final Fantasy X and X-2 as well. I finished Final Fantasy X a long time ago, and got some ways into X-2 but didn't pick it back up after setting it aside for probably 10 years...

This past weekend my girlfriend and I picked up a Smith and Wesson M&P Shield. Since I got my CHL permit about a year ago, I haven't actually had anything to carry. I do have 2 other handguns, a Springfield Armory XDM 9mm and a Smith & Wesson M&P45. I love both, but unfortunately they're not as easy to conceal as something like the Shield. My research into what to get for my carrying piece began about 6 months ago. Being in Texas and the Texas State Guard I certainly had more then enough resources to go through aside from the Internet. My buddy was also doing some research and was let me in on all the information he had gathered. I was between the Kahr PM9 and the Smith & Wesson Shield. I found some decent reviews of both guns on YouTube (this guy actually has a ton of reviews of for many different guns.

So after gathering all my notes and research and comments from other people I headed over to my local Gander Mountain (which now stocks 5-6 variants of the .50cal rifle and various Desert Eagles - I want one!) and proceeded to get my hands on not only the Shield, but the PM9, the BodyGuard from Smith & Wesson as well as the XDS and a few models from Sig Saur. I was definitely sold on the Shield though, I enjoyed the size, the form factor and how it looked.

We haven't taken them to the range yet, but this coming weekend we definitely plan on doing so this coming weekend. I feel a lot better having something that I can actually carry around daily. My next task is to find a holster that I like.

Savannah and I picked up Plants vs. Zombies 2 this weekend. So far I am impressed and excited to be playing the next PvZ. The graphics have been updated, new plants and zombies have been added as well as some parts of how the game work have changed. Mind you I've only played the first 2 levels after the tutorial so I've only experienced very little of what the new game has to offer. One new thing though is now along with sun dropping, you can also collect plant food. This plant food when fed to your plants allows them to convert into machine gunners. At least that's how it works when you feed it to a normal single shooter plant. I haven't had the chance to try it on any other plants yet.

The graphics I must say look really great. My iPhone 4S doesn't seem to have any issues running the game, however I am definitely looking forward to playing it on my iPad mini which also should have no issues.

It seems this game is based more on micro-transactions as there's many more options to use real money to purchase, coins, and plants. For me, I just can't really justify spending $2-$3 on a single plant unless if I find it really necessary. The game however should be built where one doesn't need to spend a single cent in order to enjoy the game. The game itself was free in fact, and I believe their business model is to create income from these micro-transactions.

For now, I think I'll just continue to play and enjoy this new Plants vs. Zombies. I'll certainly follow up on this post or create a new one should anything change.

Apparently I have earworms because I cannot for the life of me get "This Is Halloween" and "Making Christmas" songs from the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas 🎃 👻 out of my head!!! I've already played through both songs a dozen times and watched the movie...I'm going to go crazy! Either that or my girlfriend will, for having to listen to me humming and singing them for days on end. 😁 😝

We're definitely going to see this one. Sorry for the lack of updates lately. We've been really busy moving into the new house and getting settled in. I still don't have Internet there, Comcast should be coming out this Friday to set everything up so more posts and pictures should be coming soon!

I decided to give iOS7 a whirl this past weekend. It hit Beta 2 so I thought it might be a bit more stable, however after playing around with it for a couple days I did decided to restore back to iOS6. It was fun while it lasted but it crippled my phone a bit more then I could handle. The phone restarted itself randomly and apps, and moving around within the system were extremely slow and unpredictable. I must admit though, I was definitely enjoying the new interface and design. It looks smooth and pleasant and I have no doubt I am really going to enjoy it when the final version is released.

Many many many many more pictures will come :)
