Gear Thursday: Ghostbusters

I'm not really a video game reviewer...but then this isn't really a game review.

A while ago I did a post where I mentioned that at first I thought I'd be able to hang with my sleeping baby and play some Wii.

Yada yada...I bought Ghostbusters: The Video Game for Wii. I was attracted to the game because it had the original actors in it and Aykroyd and Ramis, who wrote the films, helped to write the story.

I popped it in my Wii yesterday and started to play...here's how gameplay went.

Step one: Disc goes into the console.

Step two: Miloh starts crying because he has a wet diaper.

Step three: Change said diaper and get back to the game.

Step four: The game starts out in the Ghostbusters' firehouse with little introduction to how the gameplay works. It takes some getting used to because you use the remote and not the nunchuk to look around. It tells me to check out the car.

Step five: Miloh cries because he wants to be bounced and have pacifier...so we bounced and he got his pacifier.

Step six: Back to the game...I go upstairs and talk to the Ghostbusters' gang. They send me on a mission to that hotel in the original movie...more ghosts came back. Again there is a bit of a tutorial on how to do stuff. It's kind of fun and I get to blow stuff up.

Step seven: Miloh cries because he needs a bottle...so he gets fed.

Step eight: Save the game with practically no progress because I'm tired.

Conclusion: The graphics are cool...and the gameplay is fun. One of the things I don't like about some games is that you can finish them really fast. Given the experience I had yesterday I don't think I'll finish it any time soon...so that's good, right?

Anyway if you like video games you might want to check it out...it got some great reviews.

Oh and Gear Thursday won't be a weekly thing anymore, but I do have some good things I'm working on including a baby carrier round-up.

  1. Love this post! And love your blog. My husband and I read you religiously, though he is way too cool to admit it. He tells everyone about the post you wrote on swaddling the cat, and he tried to swaddle me the other night with much the same results. And thanks for leaving us a comment. It made my day! Can't wait to read the next post.

  2. *dread*....does this mean my PS3, PSP and Nintendo64 will grow dusty and creaky with non-use someday? How will an addict cope!?......(and will the husband be ok without his war games and zombie killings?)

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…
