Yikes... I feel bad for people who have to fly often.

Fun game, but already stuck on Lich Yard "Specter Knight" level due to the constant lightning flashes a la "lights out". Timing the jump just right during the flash is tricky. One false move and you miss a ledge support and plummet to instadeath. Shovel Knight has an astonishing 300 cheat codes here: http://www.ign.com/wikis/shovel-knight/Cheat_Codes. I'm resisting using them until I can't continue without outside help.

On my last day in Lightning Returns. I'm horrible with time management, but I completed my main quests so I shouldn't be seeing the game over screen when I run out of time, haha. Still playing Mario Kart 8 here and there with wife and friends. I also just started up Shovel Knight for Wii U. Holy crap, I forgot how hard old school side scrolling games are. I grew up with Mega Man, but I always seemed to hand over the Nintendo controller when I fell off a ledge to my older brother who made the game look easy, haha. I love the cheesy dialog and 8bit music score of Shovel Knight. Good times!

Still skeptical about this one. I wish this was an arch in one of the Avengers or solo movies or even an after credit scene, but Marvel's sticking to their guns to give Ant Man his own solo treatment. I'll be amazed if they can stick to their summer 2015 premiere date given how long post-production usually takes.

I liked the character introduction of the Fire Emblem: Awakening characters to SSB. Aeolus probably knows, but I think the cut scene was a revamped anime scene early on from the 3DS game. Cross referencing from what I see on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Smash_Bros._for_Nintendo_3DS_and_Wii_U, there are going to be a ton of new players. Pretty much a ton of players overall. Do we know what the magic max number of characters they will stop at? It's crazy to think that Brawl came out in March 2008 for the U.S. Feels like forever ago. Only a few more months now, woot woot.

hopefully Shulk will be there eventually (hell, Xenoblade was a damn puzzle on the 3DS streetpass).

Would love a Shulk addition! Imagine him saying, "BEHOLD! THE POWER OF THE MONADO!"

Wish I saw this two weeks ago, but incredibly awesome! World Cup meets Westeros (A Song of Fire and Ice series) in these country "sigils"

Photo dimensions were a bit big, so here's the link for the U.S. version:

Glad you guys liked the video! Also, those ducks are perfect for perspective. I went on six flags magic mountain ride "tatsu" a year or so ago that had one of those "pretzel rolls." A first for me. I felt like I was a second away from blacking out after clenching my jaw and closing my eyes too long after I felt the g-force not letting go, haha. Woops!

Tatsu POV. Pretzel roll starts at 1:12 I believe.

World's tallest waterslide at 168 feet and 7 inches. Would you ride it? :)

Planes nearly miss each other during take off & landing. Good thing the pilot had quick reflexes.

Def. some internal drama happening inside Marvel execs and Hollywood creatives. For some reason no one wants to touch this thing with a ten foot pole.

Well, another year has passed. To celebrate GoT season 4 I have a special spoof gif to share:

I watched an Inside ESPN’s “I Believe” 2014 FIFA World Cup before the USA vs. Portugal game on Sunday and it was fantastic. It was great to see how a team is selected. The team spirit where players are competitors because they want to make the final cut to go to Brazil, but they're all still cheering each other on to make it is pretty cool.

Watching the program I could get the sense that USA does come out as being an underdog and soccer isn't as popular here as it is internationally, but I'm glad to see they're beginning to gain some exposure and klout as they improve. I think the team captain, Dempsey even remarked how weird it was to see a giant display of himself in Times Square.

I was sad to hear Landon Donovan didn't make the final cut. I was hoping he would since he's been one of the best players ever to come out of USA ever and is the same age as me, 32. He was a key player in the last two world cups. The good news is that he'll continue playing soccer for LA Galaxy.

It was also interesting to learn how many players actually hold multiple passports so they can play for multiple of national teams like smaller countries in Europe and many speak several languages, but at the end of the day they're still pumped up for their home team, USA.

Speaking of the games, it was gut wrenching to watch those last ten seconds of the game and seeing Cristiano Ronaldo satisfying grin with his assist for the final score to make the game a draw. Now I'm really looking forward to Thursday game to see how we do vs. Germany. Go U-S-A!

I hope they're all still super-British. Nice change of pace from the same voice actors again and again, honestly.
  Aye! I second that. Some of the great memorable lines from the first game got a bit of help from that British accent, indeed.

Another older one, but also great. What happens when you drop a salt block into a lake? Start at 0:46.

First trailers reminded me of Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii) now the new trailer today reminds me of Xenosaga. This game's design is all over the map, but has "X" at the heart and soul of it. Love it.
