Christmas comes late for my PC with a EVGA GeForce GTX 960

evga geforce gtx 960I picked up the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 because of all the great reviews and it looked like the best bang for my buck.  I bought it off of Amazon Click here to buy to help me with my real time editing with CS 5.5 Premiere pro.   I know the software is a bit dated but if it isn’t broken don’t fix it right?

I have to say this video card is a lot longer then the card I had in before…  It also I found with the black plastic case harder to install in my Cooler master Haf 932 case.   Not Big deal though… I just added a screw to the install and it all worked well.

The Zotac GTX 560ti worked great for 3 solid years… never an issue one bit… It also played PC games well too.   I might find it a new home in a new editing system.  We will see if the budget can handle it.

I had to take off my cable management due to the card being longer then my last card.   You can see here.  I did trim the plastic on the cable management and now it fits just fine.   You don’t see much when you close the case see photo below.

Spy vs. spy by mad magazine for the nes

  Who remembers the comic spy vs. spy in the classic mad magazine?  I loved that magazine as a kid!  Twisted sick humor at its best!  Well they made a game for it on the Nes!  More known on the  Commodore 64 computer than the Nintendo entertainment system but still a great game.  To find this in great condition in the box is petty rare these day.  See photos below  

 and the cart is in A+ shape! 

 this one gives me the urge to unbox my Nes and give this one a few hours of game play!

did I just pass up on a great deal???


I went to Digital press Videogames this last week.  I go there every 8 weeks (like clockwork) and they had a Turbo Grafx 16… they never have one of these… it was $299.95… I knew it was a good deal but with Christmas and all I couldn’t spring for it.  I passed on it… I picked up these two NES games instead… see video below or past post…

So did I mess up?  If I can calculate my Christmas expense and this item is still there… i might have to spring for it.

Nintendo Club to close this September 2015

Say it isn’t so!  but if this is the motivation you need to cash in those coins you’ve collected though out the years!   Then you better motivate quick!

Don’t believe me?  Well check the front page of the website at https://club.nintendo.com/

Here is all the details you’ll need below:

Important information about the discontinuation of Club Nintendo

Nintendo’s first loyalty programmes, VIP 24:7 and Club Member, started in May 2002, and were combined in December 2007 to become Club Nintendo. Over the years, players have enjoyed the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U platforms, and countless software titles across them all. We’ve also heard the feedback and opinions of around six million Club Nintendo members across Europe and South Africa, which we have used to help shape our business.

We’re working hard to create a new programme, which we plan to launch later this year. And as a special offer, users who sign up to the new programme during the launch period will be able to downloadFlipnote Studio 3D to a Nintendo 3DS system for free. Please stay tuned to the Nintendo website for further details.

This new membership programme will replace Club Nintendo, so we will discontinue Club Nintendo according to the schedule given below. Thank you for all your support.

As Stars in your account will expire on September 30th 2015, please make sure you use them before this date. There are plenty of unique and exclusive items already available in the Stars Catalogue, and we’ll keep adding more over the coming months, so there’s plenty to spend your Stars on before September 30th 2015.

Please stay tuned for more information about the new membership programme, including its launch date.

Club Nintendo Discontinuation Schedule

  • April 1st 2015: From this date, Nintendo will no longer include product registration cards with its packaged games, so such products cannot be registered in Club Nintendo. You may still find product registration cards in games that were in stock before this date, however.
  • April 20th 2015: Termination of the registration of digital products downloaded from Nintendo eShop. Digital products obtained from Nintendo eShop after this date will no longer appear in the My Registered Games & Systems page in Club Nintendo. In addition, surveys for download software titles will no longer be available.
  • September 30th 2015: End of Club Nintendo programme. All Club Nintendo features, such as signing up as a new member, logging in as a registered member, earning Stars, and exchanging Stars for items from the Stars Catalogue will no longer be possible from this date.

So even though this is horrible news… it is good that they give us till September to order our items… just remember when one door closes… another opens… oh #*%@ it!  I’m pissed!  This is yet another bad sign that Nintendo is feeling the pressure!  I hope they can keep it together!  Nintendo falls and us as gamers loose!

Try to stay positive but more on this soon!

Destiny Glacier White PS4 Bundle Limited Edition and my first ever Midnight Launch

Last night September 8th 2014… I went to a midnight launch for the first time in my life!  It only took me 40 years to do so… but I am proud to say “i’ve done one” in my life… Will it be my last… ummm I’m not sure…

The story begins with me heading into Gamestop on a Wednesday (the week before) to see what I could get for a PS3 Slim model I just wasn’t using… I don’t use ebay for video games anymore due to all the scams and what not… So Gamestop and selling to friends is my only option… The super helpful guy told me there was a deal going on for the new Destiny game or even the regular PS4.   I’d get 150 bucks for my ps3 slim if I put it towards a new PS4 system… I asked him if I could bring in two systems and get 300 bucks and he said “sure, what do you have?”    I told him I could trade in a xbox 360 i am not using… He said “as long as it is the 250 gig you will get 150 for that one as well”    That means I get 300 bucks off a brand new PS4….   I had a few days to think about it… Well at least I thought I did…

I brought the little flyer home and stared at it… I was thinking to myself… Do I really need another system?  I have the Xbone and Wii U already… Will I even have time to play it…  It kept me up all night stewing over it…

The Next morning I woke up (because I like to sleep on decisions like this) and decided what the hell… I’m going for it… and I want the PS4 Destiny bundle with the Limited Edition Glacier white PS4...

I head to the Gamestop after work… We take care of all the bizness and we hit a road block… It was to late to Pre Order the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Well the super cool gamestop guy Will totally got on the phone and made some calls to find out what he could do for me… So he figured it out… I picked up the regular ps4 that day… brought it home and couldn’t use it or open it!   I had to call first thing Monday morning to find out if I could return the ps4 and get the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Will answered the call and said… Yes, but get here by 6pm today (Monday 8th, 2014).

So when I left work… I was hoping for no traffic and I was in luck!   Go there at 5:45 and was the 3rd person there… They had one… I mean 1 ps4 Glacier Model in stock and the rest where pre orders…  I snagged that $h!t up but couldn’t go home with it… I had to come back at midnight to get it… If I didn’t they won’t hold it for me… Because technically I pre paid for it and already owned it… But they couldn’t give it to me till September 9th 12:00 am…

So that left me forced to go to my first ever Midnight launch!    It wasn’t what I was expected… it was a lot more fun then I could imagine.. It felt a lot like Christmas!   Everyone was in a super cool mood… guys where tossing a football in the parking lot… tailgating and everyone was eating Wendy’s burgers…

I did a little video of recapping the night so check it out below… and will I ever do another Midnight launch?  As much fun as it was… I will go with a definitely maybe?
