My Animal Crossing Resume

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is Nintendo’s newest mobile title, and I have been into it ever since it came out!  The Animal Crossing game series is very special to me, so to celebrate just how much fun I’ve been having with Pocket Camp, I thought I’d go over all the games and spinoffs in the series, and rate each one and share my special memories of each.  So let’s get started!

Cary’s Best Games of 2017 Awards Show!

2017 will probably go down as a very good year in gaming.  We got a new 3-D Zelda game, a new 3-D Mario game, 2-D Sonic and Metroid games…heck, we even technically got a new Animal Crossing game!  Well, we also got a new Bubsy game, but let’s try to stay positive.  It was a way better year in gaming than 2016, anyway.  So now it’s time for my Best Games of 2017 Awards Show!  Keep in mind that no outside opinions went into the making of this list.  It’s just my own picks.  And if a game is missing from my list, it either didn’t appeal to me as much, or I just simply haven’t played it yet.  Can’t play all the games out there, you know!  And I did kind of break the rules with my Game of the Year award, so expect some surprises.  Anyway, let’s get started!

PAX South 2018

The Penny Arcade Expo, or PAX for short, is one of the largest video game conventions open to the public in the US.  It started out in Seattle, then expanded to another show out East in Boston, and for the past four years, they’ve also had a show in San Antonio with PAX South.  Since that’s only a few hours’ drive from where I live, I decided to go again this year along with my dad.  It felt like a smaller show this year, but I still had a lot of fun, so let’s check out what I saw.

Pac-Man Clock

Last year I got something cool for my birthday that I wanted to show you all.  It’s a Pac-Man clock with a bunch of LED lights that simulates an old arcade screen.  I originally saw it as a prize you can earn with tickets at Round 1 Arcade, but it cost too many tickets and buying it online was expensive, too.  So I’m glad a family member bought it for me for my birthday.  So let’s take a look at it!

Super Mario Cereal

Big news for fans of video games, cereal, and amiibo figures (that describes me pretty well).  Super Mario Cereal is out in stores and even has amiibo functionality on the box!  Thanks to my family, I was able to get a box of it, so let’s take a look at it in more detail!

Cary is Looking Forward in 2018

We’re going to do things a little differently this month.  Usually at the beginning of January I’ll post my Game of the Year blog, and then I’ll write a blog after that about the games I’m looking forward to in the coming year.  But this time we’re going to reverse that and I’m going to do my looking forward blog first.  There’s a couple of reasons why I want to do it that way.  First, there’s a couple of games that are coming out early this year that I want to put on this list before they’re actually released.  And second, I want to wait a bit on my Game of the Year blog so I have time to play a couple of games that came out last year to see if they’ll make my list.  So that blog won’t go up until later on in January.  Hope nobody minds.  Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the games that are coming out next year, at least the ones I know about anyway.

More Fire Emblem amiibo

I got a couple more amiibo figures I thought I’d show off here.  These are Fire Emblem characters that were released to coincide with the new Fire Emblem Warriors games.  I don’t really play Fire Emblem games or know much about the characters, so you’ll have to forgive my lack of knowledge and short blog here.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite: Team Capcom

In the second part of my look at the characters in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, we’ll go over the fighters on the Capcom side.  I’m way more into video games (obviously, since I review them) than I am comic books, so hopefully I’ll sound a bit more knowledgeable here.  So let’s dive right in.  Oh yeah, some slight Story Mode spoilers here and there may happen, so you’ve been warned.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite: Team Marvel

It’s Marvel Week here at GamerDad.com.  We’ll be looking at the characters in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, and at the end of the week, a review of the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game!  Anyway, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is a fighting game featuring characters from Marvel comic and Capcom game universes.  Usually when I play a fighting game that has a lot of interesting characters in it, I’ll write a blog about them, so that’s what we’re going to do here.  We’ll start with the Marvel cast.  Keep in mind that I’m not a big comic book fan, so most of my knowledge of Marvel characters comes from the movies, Marvel vs. Capcom games, and the LEGO games.  So when I go over these characters, if you ARE a Marvel fan, please feel free to correct me on anything or provide any information or insight that you might like to share.

Zelda Champions amiibo

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, there are four champions who pilot giant animal-like mechanical guardians to help defeat the evil Ganon.  And now you can get amiibo figures based on those four champions.  Of course I got them so let’s take a look at them!
