    My in-laws have returned to Florida and I am back in my office. I’ve got a few things to catch up on but will get them posted as soon as I can. I also picked up something for myself, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for the Wii U. I had a gift card from Best Buy from opening a Samsung Pay account with my new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phone. There were many gift cards to choose from but this one was the one I wanted. I picked this game because, even though it was one of my very first Wii games I wanted to play it all the way through in HD and have the Wolf Link amiibo. Having the game amiibo enabled is going to add something to the game. Apparently not only does the Wolf Link figure work but the Link, Zelda, Toon Link and Sheik figures work in the game.

    I also picked up a few other things like a Skylanders Battlecast Ultimate Starter Pack which came with two starter packs, 9 booster packs and a case for holding the cards. I opened them up and got a whole bunch of great ones. More in the video below.

    You can finally do something with the Spitfire and Stealth Elf cards that you got in your Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs. Skylanders Battlecast has launched and it is a lot of fun. I received some cards to unbox and review. Opinions are 100% my own.

    Battlecast has many aspects to it. You can scan in cards, buy cards as well and then play those cards in the story mode as well as the vs mode. In each mode you create a powerful deck of character cards, spell cards, gear cards or relic cards. You can up to three characters in play at one time and can swap between them. You can also use spell cards which include element themed spells, generic spells or character specific spells. Gear can also be themed by element or character and relic cards work for the whole team. Here is a look at the unboxing and the cards as well as an example of gameplay. Afterwards you can read a full press release about the game.

    Back from a weekend of work and catching up on whatever posts I haven’t gotten a chance to post yet. I also had time today to record one of my Content Blvd reviews. this one was for a Bike Light. It is a rechargeable USB Bike Light called the Cycle Torch Shark 500. I am giving one away and you can find it at my Cycle Torch Giveaway post. I did some recording out in the garage and found it was a decent place to record except for how hot it was and I’m sure that I could never record if the neighbors were out.

    I received a shipment today that coincided with World Turtle Day. It was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Oven. We’re going to review that one another day. I was hoping that my shipment was going to be some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. They are coming.

  • Cycle Torch Shark 500 Side View

    I received a Cycle Torch Shark 500 Bicycle Light to review and one to giveaway. This was in exchange for an honest review and video on YouTube. Opinions are 100% my own.

    As you will see in the video the Cycle Torch Shark 500 Bicycle Light does exactly what you’d expect and it is also very easy to install. The connect the Shark 500 to your handlebars you connect with a special rubber connector, this also keeps the headlight firmly in place while you ride. Disconnecting the device is equally easy. You just pull off one of the connections using a handy tab and off it comes. The Cycle Torch is rechargeable and with a four hour charge it can run for an hour and a half. There are various modes of the light including bright and flashing. The tailight is also easy to connect and had a bright red light which can also be set to flashing for added safety.
