1. If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon you can see it here. The animation is what really throws it off for me. Then again, Nickelodeon is making it and I’ve since lost my faith in them after the early 00’s.
2. While out apartment hunting today, I stopped at a gamestore called G2k. They apparently had just gotten done with a magic tournament so the store was packed. I couldn’t even browse (rude people). I did snag a game I’ve been hunting for for a while now; Warios Woods! I first played it on Animal Crossing and ever since I’ve been trying to track down a copy. It tends to run medium range at $10-15, but I snagged it todays for $5.24. I’m up to level 30 now. Stopping only because my back was killing me.
3. I showed off my nerdiness today at G2k. While I was waiting in line one of the employees was talking about the things the Spider-Man movies featuring Toby McGuire changed. The employee got stuck and said he couldn’t remember the name of Spidey’s first girlfriend. I said “Gwen” and they stopped and stared for a minute and said “Yeah, Gwen”. I felt cool.
4. I’ve been a crafting fiend lately. I recently completed this project and have several more on the way 🙂
5. Speaking of crafts, this is my new favorite website.
6. Until last week I had never seen The Big Bang Theory. Now, it’s one of my all time favroite shows which says a lot too since its rare for me to find a live action TV show that I like. Sheldon is of course my favorite character ❤
7. I really want to try this Harry Potter workout. You do it while watching any of the movies. It’d be even funner with a friend 😀
8. Etsy makes me glad I don’t have a paypal account. I’d need to buy everything.
What’s part of your ‘nerdy’ week or weekend?
Sorry for the no-post spell. I spent the weekend in Northern Virginia visitng two of my closest friends (who actually helped my nerdiness along!) While we didn’t play Magic the Gathering or Munkin, we played a bit of Kinnect, watched Inception (and Skyrim, does that count??), a card game called “Dominion” and I watched my first official superbowl. Today was much missed girl time of watching the Golden Girls, What Not to Wear and TV with a zumba workout 😉 My body is crazy sore from working out with kinnect, zumba and running earlier. Now to resist the urge to buy a kinnect, even if my birthday is next month…
I stumbled across an article reviewing the DS. It made me look over at my shelf of DS games and realize I may never be able to start getting 3DS games since I need to actually beat more games before upgrading to a new system (yes 360 and PS3, that means you!) My current Library consists of the following games. Bolded games are ones I’ve beaten!
- Ace Attorney: Justice for all (I need to get the first game!)
- Brain Age
- Chrono Trigger
- Contra 4 (I beat easy mode…)
- Devil Survivor
- Dragon Quest IV, V, IX
- Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime
- Elite Beat Agent (Last level, cannot beat!)
- Final Fantasy III
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
- Magical Starsign
- New Super Mario bros.
- Pokemon Black (must catch ’em all!)
- Pokemon Diamond
- Pokemon Soul Silver
- Princess Debut
- Tetris DS (can you really BEAT tetris?)
- World Ends With You, The
Most of my games are beaten, but I still have a few unbeaten. However, there are a ton of titles on the DS I plan on beating once I beat some of the games on my backlog. A friend suggested the 5 for 1 rule (beat 5 games and then you can buy a new one). I do have quite a wishlist for my DS games though;
- 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors
- Atelier Annie: Alchemist of Sera Island
- Digimon World DS or Digimon World Dusk
- Disgaea DS
- Dragonball Origins
- Dragon Quest VI
- Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2
- Fire Embelm: Shadow Dragon
- Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
- Golden Sun: Dark Dawn
- Final Fantasy 4: Heroes of Light
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Rings of Fate
- Final Fantasy Chocobo Tales
- Final Fantasy Tactics A2
- Harvest Moon: Grand Bazzar
- Kingdom Hearts: Re: Coded
- Kirby: Mass Attack (or any of the Kirby games)
- Legendary Starfy
- Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time
- Mario and Luigi: Bowsers Inside Story
- Monster Tale
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness
- Pokemon Rangers: Guardian Signs
- Professor Layton and the Curious Village
- Rune Factory
- Solatorobo: Red the Hunter
That’s just the list I have stored. Before I close the door on my DS (however many years from now), this list will certainly grow bigger. I’ve been focusing on Pokemon Black for the last month (and on hiatus from Magical Starsign-which is an amazing game by all means). I need to take a break from Pokemon Black and get back into Magical Starsign since its been a month since I’ve played it. Luckily one of my goals this year is to beat 20 games. Hopefully I’ll find time between school, volunteering, friends, knick-knacks and work to play some more.
What are your favorite DS titles?
