  1. Not much longer now til I can get my copy of Hyrule Warriors! Today should go by fast… especially tonight since I’ll have one new episode of Haven & the final two episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena to watch.

    1. Spartacus? Lol…omg, guilty pleasures. I’ve seen all 4 seasons. Arena, blood&sand, damned…umm… I’m forgetting one. Fun series!!

      1. >.< Unfortunately, it's on Syfy so the series doesn't show fully exposed boobs. And it's unfortunate because I FUCKING HATE censoring, not because I can't see the boobies. Well that's unfortunate, too, but more so for the censoring than the nudity. I prefer the true version of something, not some watered down bullshit. Like clean radio edits of songs. I can't stand listening to a song & a crack in the lyrics occurs because a cuss word has been rubbed out of the song. *twitch* It's one of the things I HATE about Nintendo of America.

        1. I have all four seasons on DVD. It is probably the most graphic movies/tv I own. More blood and nudity than I’ve probably ever seen in all my years put together!

          You’re really missing out! The uncensored violence is pretty epic, and is a very high quality and well done series. The special features are awesome. They had a lot of fun, but I’m sad the guy who played Spartacus in the first season died of cancer. :( He was amazing, and his replacement visited him and told him he couldn’t fill his shoes but would do his best to honor the role he brought to life.

          Fun as hell series.

          1. Well thankfully I haven’t really noticed much censoring of the violence & gore for Spartacus yet. Syfy tends to be pretty lenient with that stuff at night. It’s during the day that they tend to censor the graphic content.

      1. Gamestop has already charged me for preordering it digitally so downloading. Hopefully I’ll get the code for the Ocarina of Time DLC the same day. If not, I’ll just have to wait for the email that has the code for it.

      1. I’m hoping Syfy has every single season fixed up to air on the channel, so I can watch the season seamlessly instead of having to wait months between each season. So far, they went from Blood & Sand to Gods of the Arena without any weeks in between them, so I’m hoping the same will happen with the next two seasons. A damn shame the guy who played Spartacus in the first season passed away, but I’m hoping the guy they got to replace him doesn’t feel too different.

          1. *looks up pictures of the new actress* The original actress looks better but the new one looks more like a warrior than her predecessor. Both are beautiful, though.

        1. He’s not as good, but he grows on you. Knowing how much he respected and visited the first actor when he was in the hospital helped me accept the transition.

            1. I noticed a slight familiarity in looks, too. The new guy looks like a more gruff, more battle hardened guy than his predecessor.

        2. Well the 3rd season will be airing next week with two episodes. So far, the series isn’t going to have a break between seasons. If they keep up with two episodes every Thursday night, the entire series should be finished before the end of the year. And yes! Gannicus will be returning, with the same actor, for the 3rd & 4th season. Good because I really liked the character & actor. I can’t wait for next Thursday!

  2. Tomorrow is the official release of Hyrule Warriors. And today is the official start of my week vacation from work. I’m so happy ^^

  3. … -_- This sucks… Just found out we are working a double shift tomorrow… Meaning I will not have time for games tomorrow… Meaning I’m going to fall behind on the Destiny weekly event and on Hyrule Warriors. Guess Minda is going to to have to wait to be played with… I hate making a lady wait…

  4. In my opinion, the eShop should only be used for casual games. I can’t believe people are willing to pay full price just to download a digital copy of a game because they’re too lazy to drive down to a store and buy the physical retail copy. All of this time that people has waited for this game, and they don’t want to hold a physical copy in their hands? Sad. I’ll never understand the eShop supporters.
    And btw….hello HollowGrapeJ.
