Kids on Classics – Metal Slug 2

Ever since we first played Metal Slug Alex has been asking to play it again. I resisted but since his birthday just passed I couldn’t say know this time. The main difference is that Lukas is in the mix for this one and the results are….interesting. Enjoy!

Alex Toy Reviews – Setting Traps in Minecraft (Part 1)

It is not even up for debate that Minecraft is Alex’s favorite video game to play. The better question is how do I get him to try anything else. Fortunately he is branching out from just trying to blow everything up and has moved on to setting traps for other players. It was no coincidence that Alex decided to trying making increasingly elaborate traps them moment that his little brother Lukas wanted to play. They didn’t hit eachother at all so I call it a win-win. Enjoy!

Solo Mode – WWF Wrestlefest (Tag Team Part 2)

The Ultimate Maniacs continue their push for tag team glory in WWF Wrestlefest. Watch me play the greatest wrestling game ever (I can’t say that enough) while I try to go through all of the 80’s wrestling trivia that I can remember. Is everything I say historically accurate? Probably not. But I bet you won’t Google it.

Alex Toy Reviews – Bendy and the Ink Machine Playset

Alex only had one request for his birthday party this year. That the theme be Bendy and the Ink Machine. We don’t play PC games so he’s never even played the game. He’s just seen videos on YouTube. Still, he loves Bendy and knows all the other characters. We went all out on the decorations and of course it carried over to the presents. There is still only so much Bendy merchandise but the coup de gras was a faux Bendy and the Ink Machine Lego set. It was pretty impressive. As always the boys wanted nothing to do with following the instructions but I got them to agree to putting it all together one time before having their way with it. Enjoy!

We Went Viral Because of Spiders!

So a funny thing happened over the weekend. A video that I had posted to Facebook of my kids playing with a projection of spiders went viral! In 4 days it jumped to 1 million views. Over the years Chris and I have worked extremely hard making dozens of videos hoping to get noticed. Once in a while something would hit and get us in the tens of thousands and we’d do jumping jacks. Meanwhile all I had to do was record my kids playing with some spiders for a minute and it goes viral almost instantly. The internet is a fickle beast. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

 

Alex Toy Reviews – Lego Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber (Final Product)

I just couldn’t help myself. With the boys sleeping for the night I decided to go ahead and finish the Hoth Medical Chamber myself. Even the simplest Lego design takes some time to finish so I was pretty exhausted by the time it was done. Still, I thought it came out pretty good and Alex even got to try it out.  Enjoy!

Solo Mode – WWF Wrestlefest (Tag Team Part 1)

There was absolutely no way that I could play WWF Wrestlefest for one 10 minute episode and be one with it. The only possible option was to make a run at the tag team championship on Saturday Night’s Main Event. It took a quick restart but I eventually got things going with the Ultimate Maniacs. Join me as I take a walk through wrestling history in part 1 of my quest to achieve tag team glory!

 

Kids on Classics: Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter (Alex vs Lukas)

It took a couple of weeks but I got Alex and Lukas back on the arcade console. I thought we might play something new but all, Alex could think about was Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter and I can’t blame him. It is a great game! So for the first time we get Alex going against Lukas (in video games, they go against each other in real life constantly). At least they do for a few minutes until Lukas gets distracted. Okay so maybe it is a little false advertising but what do you want from me? Enjoy!
