Thanks to everyone for a great first few months of streaming. It’s been an amazing time since September and we have no signs of letting up. We picked up our own domain and all of our content is moving! Unfortunately, WordPress isn’t letting us move our user base. 😦

First off, I am happy for anyone out there enjoying Ni No Kuni right now but I have to share my horrible experience with the Wizard’s Edition pre-order. Despite pre-ordering my copy in August 2012 for $100 dollars I have yet to receive any sort of communication from Namco Bandai regarding it’s status or shipment. Recall this special edition could only be ordered via their website.
Luckily I had saved the e-mail from when I placed the order so I was able to log in and see that my order still existed (I have read in forums and on Facebook that many others had their orders randomly cancelled on them). I even see a hold in my checking account for the purchase price but no communication from Namco or Digital River, who is supposed to be handling the shipments.
The Ni No Kuni Facebook page has exploded with angry people waiting on their Wizards Edition and then imagine my frustation when I see Namco Bandai tweet that they are making more editions available on their website! They should be taking care of the people who ordered and paid for day 1 shipping before they release more copies.
Needless to say I am a little worried about my order. Check out the thread below for more information. http://www.namcobandaigames.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=13022
Anyone else in this boat with me? What have you heard?
Thanks to a little bird (literally I heard it on twitter), I found out about the deals Playstation is offering on Black Friday. To be honest, they’re pretty awesome and if you’re looking to jump into the Playstation market now is definitely the time.
They’re offering the new Playstation Vita bundles (Assasians Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Lego Batman 2) for only $199! That’s $50 off what they are today. A really great deal for such a new system. Assasians Creed Bundle and Call of Duty Bundle will be available on Amazon and at GameStop. The Lego Batman bundle is exclusive to Target.
In addition to the Vita, Playstation is also lowering the price on their Playstation 3 bundle to $199, this includes the 250GB PS3, Uncharted 1 and 2, and the infamous collection.
I would love to hear if anyone picks one up this Friday so please comment! I would love to hear about any black Friday shopping events, actually. Especially related to Video Gaming!

Just a quick blurb… Nintendo World in NYC is having a launch party for the WiiU, tomorrow at 6pm. I will be on site for a portion of the launch party if anyone wants to join in on Google+! Keep an eye on this post for the G+ Hangout OnAir!
Recently Dalum (Fred) and I recorded a podcast and I have to make a few corrections before it’s release. I was discussing The Last of Us coming out for PS3 and this is not the game that worked with Ellen Page. That game is BEYOND: Two Souls. BEYOND: Two Souls is being developed by the same folks that worked on Heavy Rain. The Last of Us is made by the folks who worked on the Uncharted Series 🙂
I really like the “Upcoming Game Release” section of the podcast so next time I will be more prepared!
Also I finally have some contact information for everyone. Feel free to get a hold of me for questions related to my gaming collection, preferences, ideas for future posts and/or future podcasts. All is welcome.
