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!
