Ug... Nothing says Monday it seems like being unable to fall asleep on a Sunday night, then having to spend the next day in boring meetings. It's pretty much a miracle that I didn't slip into a coma. :S

Made some gaming purchases and trades this week. Picked up 9 SNES games, including Illusion of Gaia (with the manual), Super Punch Out and Super Mario All Stars off of eBay for a reasonable price. I can't remember the other games, although to be honest none were particularly memorable. I actually went to the local flea market a few days later and traded those six plus Illusion of Gaia (I already have it, but I did keep the manual) for Crackdown and Soulblazer. Tbh I really didn't get a great deal on the trade, however it was 6 games I didn't want and would have a lot of trouble getting rid of otherwise and I got two games I do want to it's worth it. :)

I still haven't picked up Ghostbusters yet, as I have more than enough games to play. I'm hearing great things so I'm looking forward to it! Thankfully atm the only other games I'm looking to pick up this year is Brutal Legend, Scribblenauts, and Beetles Rock Band so I shouldn't have any problems getting all four of those. :)

Now before I pass out for the night I'll leave you with a funny(-ish) story. My parents are away visiting my sisters, and for fathers day I thought it'd be nice to mow their lawn while they were away. Well, not a third of the way in a wheel on the mower actually breaks off (proper broken, as in you can't just stick it back on)! So in a few days my parents will come home to a partially mowed lawn and a broken mower.

Happy fathers day dad... :S

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
