So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.
I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.
Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at
So this challenge was to pull five games from five different generations (and challenge five people, which I’ll leave alone).
A tweet wouldn’t do my response justice, hence why I’m here.
You want generations of gaming? I’ve got generations of gaming.
Let’s get started!

As a gamer dad, naturally the kids want to copy what I’m doing. Each has had their own preferences as the console generations move on.

Christmas brought a few more amiibo and the really cool amiibo display steps (the 3D chess board on the right is our other display).
We haven’t jumped hugely into the amiibo scene, but we have grabbed the characters of significance for us, and that’s the important thing for me on the amiibo collection front.
One Christmas a long time ago my cousin and I both got Earthbound for Christmas.
It was a big, weirdly shaped box since inside was not only the game itself but a player’s guide.
It’s why I’m so happy to report that I’ve managed to get the Ness amiibo and add him to the Mario Party characters I’ve managed to secure.
I am not a crazy amiibo collector. I don’t “need” to “catch them all” as it were. I just go for those characters that hold special emotional significance.
Episode 146 is ready to go!

So we start out with Redflare landing on Little Miss’ green shell… and then immediately getting revenge.
After that Redflare enjoys hammering poor TJ with red shell after red shell.
It just wasn’t his day.
my reaction to another WoW expansion is a bit low Nintendo raises my hopes in gaming by delivering unto us a wonderful trailer of nostalgia.
I really look forward to the levels my children subject me to and that I in turn get to torture them with.
<insert evil cackle here>
While racing with Redflare and Little Miss a blue shell managed to smack all three of us!
I never did recover and came in 3rd right after them.
If you’re looking for the hit itself, it’s at the 45 second mark.
A satisfying run for an afternoon 4th race.
We mostly hit all the E3 announcements in this episode of the show. Then a few other tidbits of news from the political realm. You can find the episode over
Show notes, as usual, are after the break.
