NES Club aka Nintendo Quest the video game? Wait… what what?

Wait what?  It is possible for us to see a NES Club or aka Nintendo Quest the video game? Say it is so!  please say it is!… Well it is possible if and if and it is a big big if!  They reach 25,000 dollar Kickstarter Goal!   They are over 10,000 now but need to reach 25,000 smack-a-roos!   Lets do this fellow video game dudes!    I think you have to at least pledge the 65 bucks to qualify for this video game feature or aka “stretch goal” … So much fun…

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?

Mario Kart 8 for Wii U unboxing video

Check out my newest quick video on the Wii U pick up… I unbox Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U… I believe this is their best selling game to date and will be a system sell for them… Hopefully it will get Nintendo back on track to making some great games…  Make an HD remake of Donkey Kong 2 please!?!?   and some Hockey games too!   Mario Hockey?     Watch the video below

thanks

I sure hope it isn’t… keep fighting Nintendo —- Brent

COD Ghosts… what is old is new again!

Ok, before you judge… the game came out in Nov 2013…  So that counts as a forgotten game right?  lol  just kidding… I do enjoy this series of games but lost interest when you kept just getting the same thing over and over… Plus 60 bucks might not seem like a lot but with my limited amount of time to play videos games due to my little family of mine… I just made the choice to give up on the series…. but got a coupon and it was on sale GameFly so for 10 bucks including shipping I had to give it a try… Plus my coupon was about to expire… played it last night for an hour and ranked up to 6 already… ‘kid still got it” and yes I enjoyed it very much so… even though my weapons are horrible to start with…

I know TitanFall is the big behemoth that everyone is playing now… and the price goes up and down on a daily basis  and right now is 36 bucks with free shipping with prime…

And still lots of people playing… anyone here still playing?   LOL

Christmas video game pick up 2013…

Merry Christmas!  Or at least a Happy New year to ya all… I finally got around to making this video of my overly generous video game Christmas Pick ups!   Finally caved in on the Nintendo Wii U thanks to a great offer Toys R Us was running last minute with a 25 dollar gift card when you buy the deluxe version of the Wii U… I also had a 25 dollar coupon for Toys R Us as well… So 50 bucks to help push me over the limit and get the system for me and my little girls…  (totally worth it too we are loving it but more on that soon)

I also splurged this year and got the Family 2 count them 2 ipad airs… This was on recommendation from my friend Metal Jesus Rocks you can follow him on his channel www.youtube.com/metaljesusrocks  … He also told me that I could get 12 months financing and gave me a cool list of must have apps and games for it.. here http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/Top+10+iPhone+charts/feature.asp?c=55906

I also got a great surprise from my friend Dave… He gave me three systems out of the blue that he got from a friend… He said his kids don’t care about this old stuff and there where no games included so he knew I was a collector and tossed them my way… very cool… check the video below to see which 3 systems I got…  Remember collector tip 101… let everyone know you are a collector or gamer or anything… these it is a great time of year people are cleaning out old system… snatch them up any time you can!

Also picked up a few games for the Wii U… one being on recommendation from The NES Club’s Rob McCallum… The game was “Duck Tails” A Wii U…   Check out Rob’s film The NES Club Documentary on facebook and give them a like www.facebook.com/TheNesClub

And last but not least… Eric aka “fin the gamer” got me a surprised Christmas present… I was prepared for this at all and was totally out of the blue… It has been a game I been wanted to get but just couldn’t justify the cost of 50 plus bucks for it… He was in the Christmas Spirit and sent it my way… very very cool of him… visit his Channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperFinntheGamer

So with all that being said check out the video below with all my explination and what not… also don’t forget to like us on facebook.com/extendedplayarcade and tell me what you got for the Holiday Season!  also follow Retro Junkies too! www.facebook.com/theretrojunkiessupershow a page I am an Admin at!  lots of fun!
