Keeping Myself Busy This Summer

2014 has been a great year for games and the best is yet to come (according to me anyway). This Tuesday welcomes the release of two games I will be adding to my collection.

Tales of Xillia 2

I’ve only recently gotten into the Tales of series as of the past couple of years. My first game being Tales of Graces f which was amazing. I have traded this series for Final Fantasy since the battle system is so much smoother and less irritating. I hate turn based battles… ANYWAY! Shortly after the release of Tales of Xillia last year, the sequel, Tales of Xillia 2, was announced. I vowed to make it mine. And it will be. I have it reserved. ^^

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

Another game we are waiting to get our hands on is Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. When I say “we” I mean my son and I. We’ve been looking forward to it since it was announced a few months ago. It was originally exclusive to X-Box (which we do not support in this house). Luckily Sony got their hand in the franchise. It looks pretty awesome and I can’t wait to play.

We are also adding PvZ:GW to our stream time in October during our Extra Life fundraiser. My son really wants to help out after hearing why I’m doing it. So cute! ^^ And it’s a two player game, so he doesn’t have to just sit and watch me play. He can join in the fun as well.

So I’m pretty set for the rest of the month, especially with the release of Neptunia Re:Birth 1 next week. Now to wait for September to roll around…

Are you playing PvZ on PS4 as well? Leave your PSN ID and I’ll throw you a friend request. We’d love to play with you!

Getting Ready: Extra Life 2014

So I’ve said before, as you may have seen (or not), that I will be participating in Extra Life 2014. And I would like your help, dear readers.

Extra Life

On October 25th, we (my son & I) will be live streaming our Plants vs Zombies game play on Twitch in order to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network via Extra Life, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of children all over the country. You can read more about Extra Life at their website.

There will also be a giveaway for those who join the stream chat. ^^

What Can You Do To Help?

All information on how you can help out during the event will be posted the morning of October 25th.

We want to have fun and do what we can to make a difference. I hope you’ll join us!
