Hey everyone! How was your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations? Hope it was a good one!

My wife and I ended up celebrating our Christmas a week late! That being said, she got me a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U! She’s the best! I’ve been wanting to play this game ever since checking out early preview videos a while back.

Unfortunately, I’m still in the middle of my Fallout 4 play-through and I don’t want to start XCX until I’m finished with it.

So how about you guys and gals? Did Santa bring you anything good this year?

Sony announced a Vita slim, if you will, for the Japan market (no word on a US release just yet). The Vita will undergo some cosmetic changes that make the hand-held lighter. One of those changes is replacing the Vita’s gorgeous OLED screen with an LCD screen. Videos have emerged comparing the two screens and I have to say, I did not like what I see. There was a slight loss in clarity on the new LCD screen, and it appeared to look a little washed-out compared to the OLED model.

So with that being said, I decided to go out and buy an OLED model Vita before they potentially disappear from the shelves and/or increase in price due to possible rarity.

I’ve also picked up a 3 games so far: Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, and Touch My Katamari. I’ve also downloaded a bunch of free games thanks to my PlayStation Plus membership and purchased a few PSP and PSone games on top of that.

It’s a great system so far. I’ve really enjoyed the games on it as well as being able to watch Netflix and other various activities. Now I just need to get more games!


Now that I’m a home owner, I have a proper office/man cave/Room of Doom! That being said, I’m long overdue for some new office furniture. I guess a quick trip to Ikea would fix that little problem. There’s way too much wood grain in my office for my liking. For now, I’ll just have to make do with what I’ve got.

Speaking of which, here’s a picture of my current retro console setup! On the top shelf I’ve got a Gamecube, PS2 Slimline, Wii, a Japanese PS2, and a Dreamcast. On the bottom shelf is a Japanese Saturn, a modified original Xbox and a JVC X’Eye. On the floor are my PC Engine DUO RX and Super Famicom. Barely in frame on the left is a Super Nintendo!
