Wedding Tasting Vlog

The would have worked better for Wedding Wednesday, but I just had to talk about that Pokémon Direct!  In truth, last weekend was a bit all over the place– we definitely ate a lot, and we got some really cool adventures in as well!

See for yourself:

Friday Favorites: PvZ Heroes

I have a confession: there’s another game aside from Pokémon Moon that I’ve been playing on the regular.  It’s all Matt’s fault– he’s always got a game or two he’s playing on his phone.  I’m not much for mobile gaming– I prefer to browse instagram and pick up my 3DS when I want to play a game.  When I spotted Plants vs. Zombies, I knew I was going to have to download it.

Remember Plants vs. Zombies?  I used to love this game– protecting my house with Pea Shooters and Snow Peas as Zombies tried to invade my yard or roof.  Heroes is a new twist.  It’s a comic book themed card game where you can play as either plants or zombies.

Meet the Green Shadow– she’s not your average pea shooter.  She’s just one of the heroes you can build a deck around.  Open virtual booster packs with the points you accumulate as you progress to add more plants (and zombies) and tricks to your decks.

The essence of the game is the same– five rows of plants vs. five rows of zombies.  It’s the hero you’re defending this time, and the hero on the other side you’re defeating.  The game gets harder and harder as your progress.  I’ve made it through 50 levels or so on the plant side, but I think Matt’s played 5 times that…

It’s been a great game to play on the train and has completely reaffirmed my love for PvZ.  What have you been playing lately?!

Wow, that first week back at work after a vacation is rough!  I slept way in yesterday, and have enjoyed a wine and cheese filled weekend to compensate.  But, lots of things to share this week!

  • The Grace Helbig Project | My spirit animal, Grace Helbig, is getting her own show on E!  Save the date, Grace is coming to E in April.
  • Penguins gaming | For some reason, some people gave an iPad to penguins and apparently some of them are obsessed with a mobile game.  I love that.
  • TV Timeline | Roku actually posted this Mashable link– a timeline of television!  Not shows, television and like, how we watch it.  So interesting!
  • Tina, Gillian, & Netflix | Netflix posted this: “Why Tina Fey and Gillian Anderson are on Netflix.”  I love both of them and am so looking forward to more of The Fall and all of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!
  • Game of Thrones | We finally get a release ate for Game of Thrones season 5!  April 12 on HBO.  91 days to go!
  • CES & Doctor Who | CES brought us some important things, like this Doctor Who speakers (pictured above) from Massive Audio.  I probably need these.
  • Koalas Need Mittens | Finally, a very serious plea.  Reading this article absolutely broke my heart.  Outbreaks of brush fires have left a lot of kaola burn victims who are in desperate need of cotton mittens.  If you can, please help by making some mittens and sending them to Australia.
