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?)

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
