I shouldn’t be allowed to have money…

Every time I have a little extra money I end up spending it on stuff that I really don’t need. Yeah, sure it’s nice to treat yourself sometimes but I think I may be over doing it. For example I bought myself a Tardis building set… I have no use for it other than having it on display at my desk… but I ended up buying it anyway…

The only reason I went on Think Geek in the first place to buy a new mug that I needed… and to be honest saying that I NEEDED a mug is probably debatable…
I also left the site with a wonder woman t-shirt for my 3 year old niece…

My niece has enough clothes… she doesn’t need another shirt… chances are she’ll only wear it once before she out grows it…

And Today, For Human Peoples is having a sale… I bought 2 posters… And that doesn’t seem too bad…
But I got posters from them last week, and two weeks before that… none of which have been put up yet. I’ve been planning to put them up, but I have to take a bunch down to make room.

And probably the worst thing is that I’m always lecturing my brother on how to properly manage his money. I guess I can’t practice what I preach… I guess this is something that I have to work on.

What if...

Disney and Nintendo joined forces?
I mean, think about it...

If I ask you what film company gave you some of your favorite movies growing up, chances are it's Disney.
and if I were to ask you, what Video Game company gave you some of your favorite games growing up, you'd probably name Nintendo.

Now I can't speak for everyone, but wouldn't it be awesome of the Mickey Mouse of gaming, and well... Mickey Mouse would to join forces and partner up. Mickey Mouse and Super Mario...
Disney would produce animated films featuring Nintendo licenses, and Nintendo would create video games based on Disney licenses.

and after a Movie like Wreck-it Ralph, it has become clear to me, that someone at Disney animation knows their video games, and they know them well.

Not only that, but imagine the kind of attractions you'd find at Disneyland/Disneyworld.

Autopia will become Mario Kart themed,
Link and Peter Pan will have a store that reflects their fashion sense.
Zelda, and Peach would hang out with Ariel, Cinderella, and Belle.
Buzz Lightyear, and Samus Aran would take over Tomorrowland...
Donkey Kong, and Cousin Louie will become the best of friends... or not...

I can go on for days... but I won't.
Being a gamer and a Disney nerd... thoughts like these are always flowing through my mind...
I don't know whether or not the idea is good, or if it makes any sense financially...
but I don't care, I want it to happen.

What do you guys think?

4 more days to pledge for VGHS 2.



If you've been planning on pledging to the VGHS 2 kick starter, now is your chance. There are less than 4 days to go and the project isn't 100% funded yet. No funding = No VGHS 2, and that means there will be plenty of sad little boys and girls who won't be able to see the adventures of Brian D, Ted Wong, Jenny Matrix, and Ki Swann.
I've got the chance to appear in the first season, I got to see exactly how hard everyone worked on this project. No one is more deserving of this chance than Freddie Wong and company. So it would be AMAZING if this project also got funded.

Thanks!

Injustice Roster, Rumors, and Predictions.


Since the Announcement of DC Comics, and NetherRealms Studios’ latest project Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Fans have been speculating on which DC characters will make it into the game, How many characters from a certain series, and what the characters will look like.
There have also been many leaked characters which have given fans more to talk about.
Here’s the current roster:

1. Bane
2. Batman
3. Catwoman
4. Captain Marvel
5. Cyborg
6. Deathstroke
7. Flash
8. Green Arrow
9. Green Lantern
10. Harley Quinn
11. Joker
12. Lex Luthor
13. Nightwing
14. Solomon Grundy
15. Superman
16. Wonder Woman

Looks like there are plenty of characters from the Batman series, 6 out of the 16 announced characters are from Batman? That’s a lot and it really makes me wonder if that will leave room for guys like the Blue Beetle, Static, and Plastic man, just to name a few. Not only that but the Superman Series is also pretty popular so I can guarantee that we’ll get a few more characters from the Man of Steel’s series.
There have also been a few characters somewhat leaked… but not officially announced yet. The European Special Edition, it includes a booklet. On the cover of the booklet you can see Martian Manhunter’s symbol, along with Robin’s. Why include their symbols in, if they weren’t going to be in the game?



It is also been reported that Ed Boon had four comic books on Display at E3 2012:
Green Arrow, Nightwing, Aquaman, and Deathstroke.

All of them (With the exception of Aquaman) have been announced as playable characters since E3.
So it’s probably safe to say we’ll have the King of Atlantis gracing us with his presence in the upcoming fighter.
It was also announced that Several other characters from the DC Universe, including Ares, Black Adam, Doomsday, Hawkgirl, Raven, and Sinestro, will make appearances in the game; but, whether they will appear as playable characters or NPCs is currently unknown

It will be interesting to see the choices they will make on the choices they will make regarding who is in the game, and who won’t be. Either way, I’m excited to play the final game, and I’m anxiously waiting to pick up my pre-order.

Ps. NetherRealm... if you're reading this... add me to the game. I'll behave I promise! (unless you don't want me to)

Pps. (hehe P. P.) I also posted this to Screw Attack. :)
