  • I unbox the Disney Infinity 3.0 Wii U Starter Pack.

    I’m enjoying this game even more. So far we have unboxed the Starter Pack and three individual figures. Last night Eva recorded unboxing Mulan, Olaf and Sabine Wren. She loves Sabine and why not, she is a great character. I recorded some gameplay using the combat programs. I played a bunch of them to upgrade the characters and learned that the skill tree has a few pages that you get to by hitting the R and L buttons on the Wii U controllers. That makes sense. I thought that the upgrades to start were a little weak.

    Today was the first day of school for Eva. She started Second Grade. Allison is also back at school this year. It is not her first day but it is her second year at SMSH. She will be the aide in the first grade again. I think that they are both pretty excited about the year ahead.

    I picked Eva up from school because it was a half day. She had a very nice first day. We came home and had lunch and then played some Disney Infinity 3.0 again. I am really enjoying this game. It is far better than 1.0 and 2.0. I just keep finding more parts of it to enjoy. Eva is enjoying it as well. Andrew tries to play a bit.

    Allison came home and we went out for dinner to celebrate the first day of school. That is our tradition. This time we went to Bliss instead of House of Fortune and we had a nice meal. Allison and I split a pound cake sundae and it was delicious.

  • Star Wars Rebels Season One - DVD

    Star Wars Rebels is one of my favorite shows. I like it a lot because Eva and I watched it together and this was her gateway into Star Wars. Since that time Eva has seen Star Wars: A New Hope and she is eager to watch more. Star Wars Rebels was that perfect show to come along and get Eva excited about Star Wars which makes this Geek Dad Proud.

    Would you like to share this great show with your kids? I’m giving away a copy of the Season One DVD. Enter through the Rafflecopter App below.

    On Friday I got a notification that I was receiving a package from Disney Interactive Studios. The PR firm for Disney Infinity was sending me Disney Infinity 3.0. Immediately after I saw the message I saw another message from UPS that there was some sort of facility outage and my package was going to be late. Well, after playing with my emotions all weekend the package arrive right on time today at 10:30am. I was up not to long afterward to get it from the porch. But, I got a huge box of figures, playsets, power discs and the starter pack for the Wii U and all opinions I have are mine alone. Let’s get into it with this video below.
