The Lucky Springs

So, today I buckle down and purchase the new world for “The Sims 3” called “Lucky Palms”.   I have played it a little bit today and I absolutely love it.  The main two features of this new world  is “The Lucky Simoleon Casino”  and “The Wishing Well”  ( I will be your wishing well, kiss and tell).  I am sorry I don’t know why that song pop in my head just than.  I will try to stay on topic, The Lucky Simoleon Casino can be brought separately or together with this world.  I believe that this Casino was made for “Lucky Palms”  specifically which is a added bonus.   The Wishing Well is great if you don’t have Showtime.  Some of the interaction are similar to the genie.   The wishing well comes with three interaction fish, steal coins, or wish.   Apparently, there is a lucky coin you can grab from the well that can help you at the casino.  All and All this will eventually become one of my favorite worlds to play in.

Happy Birthday!

I want to say Happy Birthday to Atari! Who is turning 40 years younger today! This system brought me into the world of gaming and my life has never been the same since. Here’s to forty more years of reminding  this gamer to “Never Forget”.

My Favorite Doctor!

Yeah,  So for my next post!  I have decided to share my love for Doctor Who!  I am Classic Doctor who fan!  I do occasionally watch the new series and have grown to love David Tennent’s performance as Ten.  But,  This post is going to be dedicated to a unsung hero of the Doctors.   A man who was so misunderstood that it took audio series to bring him back to glory.   The Man I am talking about is no other then The Sixth Doctor.  Even though this Doctor  looks like he have come out of an explosion in a rainbow factory.  He still holds a special place in my heart…

As you can see I am obsessed with changing that coat!  I could go on and tell you the rather unpleasant history of what happen during The Sixth Doctor era.  But, I am sure that there is enough web pages on the internet that will go over the behind the scenes history of that period.  If you pick up “The Trial of A Time Lord”  there is a special dedicated to that time in the shows history.  I love watching it!  I do believe that Colin Baker did not get a fair run during his time as  The Doctor.  He was a wonderful Doctor and I believe that over time he would have mellowed like we saw in “Trial of A Time Lord”.    The doctor was flawed and that probably why I like him out of all of them.

“No one is beyond redemption”  I am glad that The Sixth Doctor has been redeemed through “Big Finish”.  Well, I can go on all night about this doctor.  Enjoy the photos they are just fan art that I have done!  Except for the Head shot thats from another source.

Teddy Ruxpin Who?

This Teddy Ruxpin looks scared!

I have been on a nostalgia kick lately! I remember having The Teddy Ruxpin doll for at least half of a day. Later, The same day I thought that it was hungry so I feed it some paper. Because, I assumed that this is what robotic bears it. It broke within a hour afterwards. I guess this is the true meaning of “If it isn’t broke don’t feed it”.

The Sims 3 Supernatural!

Supernatural is the next expansion pack in The Sims 3.   It will bring a new type of  Sim that you can create or customize in CAS ( Create-A-Sim) .  The  new types will include Fairies, Werewolves and witches.  You will also be able to turn your sim into a zombie! yay!   The only thing is left is the  shifters  and your dream of recreating that town in True Blood will be complete.  I am excited about this expansion there are so many possibilities  for this.  I will be the first one to get this when it comes out in the fall.   An added bonus if you pre-order it from Origin or Gameshop you will get some cool stuff from Plants Vs Zombie.

I cannot wait for this game to come out!  I was surprised that they went  for the colonial period during Revolutionary War.  I honesty did not see that coming.  I was hearing rumors about various places they was considering including Japan.   I am glad they decided to shift it state side and hopefully we can get closer to playing Desmond for the full game and not 30 mins of it.

Rambling Third Post

This is officially my third post! Yay

I just wanted to say a couple of things about my blog.   As you can tell I am a Mathnet Fan and to be truthful I really like the series.  There will be alot of content on this series that’s going to be found on my blog.   I just wanted to point out that I am in no way affiliated with anyone.  I just believe that it is time to try to help support the release of  Square One on DVD.  But, don’t worry this blog is not going  be just about this along. There will be variety.   So, yeah!   I also wanted to point out that I am not the perfect writer so, I will be making alot of grammar errors.  I think I just made one right there. lol   In other words bear with me .
