On Destiny (PS3)
Had an absolute blast this weekend playing the Destiny Beta. Ended up with a Lvl. 8 Hunter, and spent most of my time prior to the close playing within the Crucible.Watching my steady improvement in this PvP arena was extremely gratifying, and was one of the highlights of this whole experience.
See ya September 9th for the full game! Cannae wait!
Playing Destiny (Beta; PS3)
While I’m not yet experiencing the game on a “nex-gen” conole, the beta on the PS3 has been a blast thus far. Level 6 Hunter after playing for a few hours this afternoon, and knowing it will only get better just sweetens the deal.
Mario Kart 8 Tribute Piece by Glen Brogan
I love Glen Brogan’s work, and this obvious whimsy is one of the reasons why. Rosalina and Yoshi are my go-to racers so this hits home as well! Awesome piece that I hope he makes available as a print.
"See you at the finish line, jerk!"
No doubt that was the slingshot character Nintendo had chosen to give me a run for my money that race.
A couple of weeks ago I purchased one of the Target exclusive Nintendo eCard’s that comes with an AR card to allow you to interact with the Photo’s With Mario 3DS app. I encourage anyone to pick these up if they collect official Nintendo merchandise, plan on giving these items as gifts, etc.
Anyhow, I’ve been trying to figure out what to best spend the points on, and it hit me this afternoon that I had been waiting tfor just an excuse like this to pick up Pushmo! I’m not a HUGE puzzle fan, but I do like to take the plunge on occasion (Tetris, Professor Layton, etc.) and seeing as how the game was developed by Intelligent Systems, I should actually be kicking myself that I haven’t downloaded it already. As anyone that’s followed the blog for any length of time should know, Intelligent Systems is one of my favorite game developers of all-time and that I collect as many of their games as I can get my hands on.
Pushmo is no exception, so if time is on my side this evening, I’ll go ahead and get this downloaded, and get to playing.
[Edit: A reminder to myself to further check out the eShop’s Scram Kitty as well. Love the way the game looks and sounds in previews!]
From my Quester’s Log Account:
Well, I think I managed to get my pre-order for the Limited Edition in! Amazon had sold-out by mid-day today if I understand reports right. Whether it will truly be a “limited edition” now, or not, I do not know but I am getting awfully excited about the game, and in the end it is the game that matters most.
I had mistakenly thought Beta access was exclusive to the PS4 and XBox One, but it appears I’ll be able to give it a go on the PS3…as soon as I receive the Beta Code via e-mail, which could be a few days it seems. Ah well, patience is a virtue. Good luck to those trying to hunt their preferred edition down, as well as access the Beta.
It’s been fun getting into this already.
Sold. Sold. Sold. Sold. Sold!
Reference my favorite comics character, and grant similar shield abilities, in one of my favorite series’ and if I wasn’t sold already I DEFINITELY am now.
