In about a month I’ll be moving to a new town. Oh don’t worry about me, I’ve done this before so I know what to expect. Once I get there, a raccoon will try to sell me a house. My neighbors will be critters like talking ducks and frogs. I’ll be buying my clothes from a pair of porcupine sisters and spending my Saturday nights listening to a singing dog. No I’m not insane; I’m just talking about Animal Crossing. The next installment will be on the 3DS and will be called Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Apparently, someone knows I’ll be moving there around June 9th, so they sent me a typical welcoming present (thanks Andrew). Click here to find out what it is!
Even though the BioShock game series isn’t my cup of tea, I do have to admit they have loads of unique atmosphere. Now BradyGames has you covered with a strategy guide for the newest in the BioShock series: BioShock Infinite. Is it worth getting even though we have the Internet now? Read on to find out!
The recently released Tomb Raider game on current gen consoles reboots the franchise and the popular Lara Croft character. And it seems to be pretty successful, too. Now you can experience all the creativity and craftsmanship that went into the visuals in the game with Tomb Raider: The Art of Survival, a new book by BradyGames, the same folks that publish all those strategy guides. Let’s take a peek at what you’ll find in this over 200 page book.
With Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon recently released, I tried to think of my favorite ghosts from the first game, as a lot of them had quite a bit of personality. But it’s been such a long time since I played that game that I couldn’t think of enough to write about. But then I started thinking about my favorite ghosts in other video games in general. I think ghosts are kind of neat. You know those dumb ghost hunter and ghost story shows you see on TV? Yeah, I watch those sometimes. It’s a guilty pleasure thing. I might also watch a stupid ghost movie on Netflix from time to time, and of course, Ghostbusters is one of my all-time favorite films. So in honor of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon coming out, here’s a list of my top five favorite ghosts in video games!
In honor of the two-year anniversary of the release of the 3DS, and the one-year anniversary of the North Dallas/Plano, TX Area StreetPass meetups, we’re planning something really big!

For more information, click here.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, and the upcoming release of a certain game next week, I’m going to write a little tribute blog to one of video gaming’s most famous green-clad heroes: Luigi! I’m not going to take a look at EVERY game Luigi’s been in, just the ones I feel are most important. At one time, Luigi was originally my favorite Mario character. That is, until Super Mario Kart came along and I realized how awesome Toad was. But Luigi is still tops in my book, way cooler than Mario anyway. Anyway, let’s take a look at some of Luigi’s highlights in gaming.
Happy Easter, everyone! (It’s at the end of March) Just wanted to share something I found at the store (Target), that’s both Easter and video game related. It’s an Angry Birds Easter Egg Decorating Kit! Not sure what Angry Birds and Easter have in common, but I guess birds do lay eggs. But oh well, it’s all in fun, so let’s take a closer look.
Yes, it’s the birthday of that grand old champion of fun, quirky, easy to read children’s literature: Dr. Seuss. As Dr. Seuss books are getting quite a workout in my household of late (I’ve got one early reader and one just starting to learn his letters), I thought I’d take a moment on this fine day to give a short rundown on some of our household’s favorites.
If you have a 3DS and live in the North Dallas/Plano, TX area, here is some info on the next 3DS StreetPass meetup. Saturday, February 23 at the same GameStop as always. I should be there, too! –Cary
