Photo-A-Day #4364

One of our family’s favorite games on the Wii U is Splatoon. Well on The Nintendo Switch we are going to be getting Splatoon 2 to play. It is still about a month away but today (3/24/17), tomorrow (3/25/17) and Sunday (3/26/17) players will have a chance to participate in an ink-redible event, here the top 5 things you should do:

1. DOWNLOAD THE FREE DEMO: Just head to Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and download the Global Testfire demo before playing. It won’t cost you any snails.

2. MARK YOUR CALENDARS: With ink, of course. Here are the times you can play to get tentacle-on time with Splatoon 2 before it launches:
March 24: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
March 24: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
March 25: 4-4:59 a.m. PT
March 25: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
March 25: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
March 26: 4-4:59 a.m. PT

Nintendo Treehouse was livestreaming Splatoon 2 gameplay during the first Global Testfire event on March 24 between noon and 12:59 p.m. PT. Tune in to to watch!

3. IN THE LAB OR ON-THE-GO: With the first Splatoon game, you had to conduct important cephalopod research from the comfort of your own lab. But with Splatoon 2 on Nintendo Switch, you can take the messy action anywhere you go that has a Wi-Fi connection. Maybe you want to choose an untraditional location to participate in the Global Testfire. It’s up to you!

4. GET PRIMED WITH A CONTROL & WEAPON OVERVIEW: Research can be conducted with either a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller or Joy-Con controllers. Splat Dualies are a new weapon type, while mainstays like the Splat Roller and Splat Charger have been remixed to allow for new battle strategies.

5. CAPTURE YOUR RESEARCH: An important step in the scientific method is to make observations. We recommend capturing your findings with the Capture button on the Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, then later sharing it with your peers in the scientific community (or if you’re like our intern, use Facebook or Twitter). When publishing your research, please use the octothorp symbol (#) followed by “Splatoon2” or “Testfire.”

Unboxing The March 2017 Loot Crate – Primal

Loot Crate March 2017 Primal

The other night when I was filming Built from Bricks with Brian he agreed to help me unbox the latest Loot Crate. We were also testing the lights in his studio. I have to say, we are a bit washed out at parts but we’ll figure out how to get it all done right. Always a work in progress and a learning curve to be had. We’ll get it all figured out. the thing is, I have to switch the settings on the camera every time and some times it doesn’t come out perfect. I’m always learning and man am I making mistakes. When I shoot Brian for his City Updates I’m behind the camera and have control. when I shoot my own stuff I’m there in front of the camera hoping for the best.

Let’s get to the crate. This was the Primal Loot Crate for March 2017. It was filled with exclusive items from Wolverine, Overwatch, Jurassic World & Predator.

Brian and I are from the 80’s so we may have been seriously out of touch and showing our age when we unbox the t-shirt. Watch out!

Now that March’s crate unboxed, I wanted to bring to your attention the new theme reveal for April: INVESTIGATE
