VETTE! (PC) Review



VETTE! is an open world racing game by Sphere and published by Spectrum Holobyte in 1989 for MS-DOS and later on the Apple Macintosh. In this game, you race your Corvette against opponents in other super cars.

I love cars. Every job I've ever had involved cars in one way or another. I've driven Ferrari's, Bentley's, Aston Martins and everything in between. When I found a Delorean for sale near me I went to the bank to secure financing to buy it but I was too slow. I've looked around for a Yugo but I live in the North East and the winters have rotted away all of them around me. Except for the very first car I bought which needed a mechanic to fix some suspension parts for the safety inspection, I've done all mechanical issues that have come up that wasn't warranty work. One time I was at a speed shop buying headers for my Mustang and I came across a cardboard box full of car magazines from the 1980s, I asked if they were for sale and when I was told they were I bought the whole box. I think at this point you can tell that I love cars.

Cleaning Video Games Tutorial


I love the hunt for used video games because you never know what you'll find. One thing you do find though is that used games are usually dirty and covered with stickers. I'm a bit OCD about my games and I can not stand the ugly Gamestop yellow stickers that they have plastered all over their used games so I've had a lot of practice cleaning up video games.

I like action figures and I like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I also loved the 1990 TMNT movie when it came out. So when I was wasting time looking around the Internet I found this guy and I bought him before my wife could stop me.

Nano Metalfigs Harry Potter Lord Voldemort Miniature Review



I came across these Nano Metalfigs at Wal-Mart the other day and I was intrigued. Besides Harry Potter minis they also had WWE wrestlers, Street Fighter, DC, Marvel, and Disney characters. I could be missing some but that's what I saw on the shelves. Nano Metalfigs are pre-painted metal miniatures based upon existing and popular lines and only cost 97 cents!

TMNT Mutant XL Donatello Action Figure Review




So I was out shopping with my wife for back to school stuff for my daughter. Well, I quickly became bored with it so I set course for the toy department. I made it to the ninja turtles and was about to buy myself a Raphael from the Nickelodeon cartoon when I saw this big Donatello. I've been buying big Donatellos lately, which you'll be seeing more of later, so I put Raphael back and chose Donny.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NECA Comic Con 2009 April O'Neil Mirage Comics Version Review



When I was growing up I spent a lot of money on action figures but as I shifted from the role of kid to adult I had less interest and less money than in my younger days. Now that I'm settled into the role of adult, and father, I can start to buy some of the cooler action figures that are out now. I remember when NECA released the original Mirage Comics TMNT line, I loved them immediately and wanted to get them but they had sold out quickly and they were already selling on the internet at a decent markup. I wish I could go back in time and pay those prices. For anyone out there that sees something that they like, I always say buy it because it's always going to cost more years later.
