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!

 

 

 

Solo Mode – WWF Wrestlefest (Royal Rumble)

As much as I enjoyed WWF Superstars, it does not hold a candle to WWF Wrestefest. It does everything the first one does times 100. The graphics, the moves, the gameplay. It is a perfect wrestling arcade game in my humble opinion. Watch me try to keep from giggling with joy as I play Royal Rumble mode with one of my favorite 80’s wrestlers, Earthquake! Enjoy!

Alex Toy Reviews – Lego Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber (Part 2)

For a set that broke things up into 3 pieces we’re having quite the time getting past the first part. I can’t believe I didn’t expect Alex to do what he did right after finishing that section. I hate to be like Lord Business but he brings it out of me. Enjoy!

Kids on Classics – Jumping Pop

It was only a matter of time before my 3 year old son Lukas wanted to get in on the action. I had to find a game he could play and stumbled across Jumping Pop. I had no idea what it was but it quickly became clear that it was the grandfather to Luigi’s Mansion. All I could think of though is why Nintendo didn’t just slap a Ghostbusters logo on this game instead of publishing the Ghostbusters games we ended up with. Fast and addictive. The kids loved it. Enjoy!
