pancake.jpgIt is my second favourite day of the year, Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday to some.  Every since I can remember I loved this day.  Eating pancakes for supper was a treat.  Over the year have gotten pretty good a making them.  For most of them have been using this recipe > here.  Think this time will make extra.  Freeze them for another day.

New Project

youtube.jpgHave started the early work on a new project.  It is something I have wanted to do for awhile now.  My brother and I are going to be doing a YouTube channel.  We are just getting some idea together.  Like what we would like the name, what we would like to film and that kind of stuff.  Think it will be very funny to do.  The main idea is he will be the “star” and I will be behind the scenes/tech guy.  Will keep updating as we make more progress.

Tom_Clancys_Ghost_Recon_Wildlands.jpgTalking about Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands once again.  Because the open beta is going on now.  February 23 to 27, 2017.  Did play the closed beta so I knew what to except.  All the same content from the closed beta is there.  However they had some new stuff to look at.  Within another province.  This game can be played single player.  It is all designed to be played co-op as well.  So this time around got to try that feature out with my brother.  It changes the way I played the game.  Team work in name of the game.  You can stick together or you go your separate ways.  Attacking from different areas.

Dolly_Parton_Kenny_Rogers_Islands_In_The_StreamIt is throwback Thursday once again.  The song this week is Islands in the Stream by Dolly Paton and Kenny Rogers.  Have heard this song a few time over the years.  But never knew the name.  Thought it was sail away with me.   Heard a small clip of this song there other day.  So looked it up.  Have to say this is an awesome song.  When they sing together there is some thing special there.  This is off Kenny Rogers 1983 album called Eyes That See in the Dark.   You can see then singing this song live > here or below.

2017_National_Hockey_Card_DayBack on February 18, 2017.  While in the local comic book store.  The guy has the desk asked if I follow hockey.  I said, no, but used to when  I was a kid.  He said it is, National Hockey Card Day.   Have never heard of this.  Had to look it up when I got home.  Turns out Upper Deck has been doing this for six years.  When you got to a participating store you get a free pack of cards.  So I got a five pack of cards plus a check list card.  Have not open one of these in a very long time.  It was kind of fun.   Even knew who four of the five players are.  According the the check list there are 19 cards in the set.

FunkoPop.jpgHas been a few months since I last bought some Funko vinyls Mystery Minis.  Have quite the growing collection.  Add two more. So it is up to 15 now.  Really like collecting these.  They are not a bad price and I all so like the variety the come in.  The best is you don’t know which one you will get.  This time picked up one from the Game of Thrones: Series 3 line.  Got Tormund Giantsbane.   The second on is from the Batman V Superman line.  Got Aquaman.

Crash_Bandicoot_N_Sane_TrilogyBack in December (2016) learned that they were re-making/re-mastering the first three Crash Bandicoot games.  They are calling it Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.   There is some new news to share.  The game will be out on June 30, 2017.  The the best part is it will not be a full price game.  Think that is a very smart move.  But sure the price let.  There are rumours it will be $30.00 in American money.  So it will most like be close to $50.00 here.  Will be adding this to my want to own list.  Just might not be right away.  They put out a small Q&A on the PlayStation blog.  You can read that > here.

LEGO Worlds

LEGO_WorldsA few years ago heard about a interesting game called LEGO Worlds.  It a PC game in early access on Steam.  The game is an open world/sandbox that is procedurally generated.  You can pretty much built anything you could in real life LEGO in the game world.  It would lets you build with predefined elements or you could build brick by brick.

Well years later the game is official coming out.  Not just on PC.  The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are getting it was well.  Game is set to be out March 7, 2017.  The date could change of course.  Another cool think about it is the price.  Retail in Canadian money is $30.00.   Might just get a copy.
