Just a few quick blurbs this morning as I try to get through my week. I may be a bit light on posting over the next few weeks. I'll have a few things scheduled, but with Memorial Day coming up, my dad visiting from Florida, a family outing to an amusement park planned and of course - a couple of new games that I need to hunker down and review - I may be busy. And by this time next week, I'll hopefully be playing a little game known as Diablo III.
I have already had several people ask me why I'm not playing it already, considering it is one of the most anticipated games... probably ever. Well, that question has a few answers. 1) I'm a bit broke this week compared to usual. A pair of unexpectedly huge bills and a pair of cats needing trips to the veterinarian's office did not help matters. At all. But, I have a birthday within the week, and my dad usually springs to grab me a game. While I'm interested in Dragon's Dogma and a few other titles, I think point 2) is that I'll let someone else buy Diablo for me. 3) I have way too much going on at work these days to tempt myself with a shiny new game that could lead to me trying to take a few days off. Just seems like a recipe for disaster.
Moving on, there was a 3DS update last night/this morning, and I had no idea what it was about until I read the Nintendo press release, so I thought I would share with the rest of the class:
15 th May 2012 – Nintendo of Europe today announces that it has made an update available for Mario Kart 7, which will eliminate the ability to exploit shortcuts when playing Online Multiplayer on the courses "Wuhu Island Loop," "Wuhu Mountain Loop," and "GBA Bowser Castle 1".
The Mario Kart 7 Update data are available for free via Nintendo eShop from today, after performing the latest system update to make sure that your Nintendo 3DS system is up to date.
Mario Kart fans who have not downloaded these Update data will no longer be able to play Online Multiplayer; but don’t worry if you are unable to connect to the Internet and download the update immediately, as you will still be able to take part in Local Multiplayer and Single Player races without the update.
