Rock Band 2 - Game Review

Got a chance to play Rock Band 2 at home, then later on at a party on the PS3. Sooo much fun! I really like the drums. I'm working on getting gift cards via Swagbucks so I can get the drum set for free, so if you could sign up using the link below, I would greatly appreciate it!

The only thing I didn't like about it was that I barely know any of the songs! That makes it difficult for me to follow along, since knowing the rhythm of the song makes it a lot easier to play. Sister wants to get Band Hero because apparently that has more modern and hip songs (really she wants it coz it has Taylor Swift songs, which she likes). I'm hoping to get drums soon (in 6 months if no one signs up :(). I won't have a mic, but no one is going to sing anyway!

Green - Works!! - Product Review

I finally had a chance to try my free bottle of Greenworks laundry detergent. It smells great and works great! I definitely recommend it to anyone trying to go green. Greenworks cleaning line is biodegradable and environmentally friendly and at least 95% natural. Sweet! I can't wait to try out all the different scents! I have only seen 2 at Superstore - regular and scent-free. Next up, I'll probably have to buy some of the other household cleaners to try! Go run out and buy yours now!

The long awaited tax-free days at Superstore is here tomorrow and Friday - hooray! I always look forward to these days because I can use my FPC's to get the items completely free! Woot! Tomorrow I'm picking up my GreenWorks laundry detergent and 2 Clover Leaf flavored tunas. Not too many things this year, but I'm also getting some snacks and stuff that would be awesome if I didn't have to pay tax on it! Whee!

Went to an interview today, it was very disorganized. I won't post details here. Anyway. Can't wait until Christmas + shopping! Wooooo! I'm going to start wrapping gifts LOL. I just wish I knew what my parents are giving to relatives.

ALSO, bonus redemption weekend at Shoppers Drug Mart this weekend! Woohoo, lots of shopping this week! I have enough to redeem twice, to get $340 of free stuff in total! YEAH!!

Green Works Laundry Detergent - good for your clothes AND the environment!

The good people at Matchstick has sent me a coupon to try out a bottle of Green Works laundry detergent. I have been wanting to try this line of cleaning supplies for a while now, and now's my chance! I am going to pick it up next weekend and try it on the next load of laundry! Woot! I have heard good things about Green Works dish soap, but no one I know has tried the laundry detergent. Clean clothes? Good! Good for the enviroment? Even better! Check back in a week to see what I think about it!

Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - Game Review

I have been playing Bowser's Inside Story for the past few weeks now. I had to keep referring to a walk-through just to make sure I didn't miss anything! It's not like regular Mario games. Every time there is a baddie you need to fight, you go to a separate screen, and I hate that! Since you are controlling Mario AND Luigi, that can get a little confusing too, since you have to press 2 buttons at once sometimes. You also control Bowser in some parts of game story line. Very interesting. I'm about 3/4 done the game I think. I have to say I like the New Super Mario Brothers Nintendo DS game better. I'm going be buying the Wii version of Super Mario next, as soon as it goes on sale!

Check out the game's website.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - Game Review

I bought 2 Nintendo DS games last week because Best Buy was having their grand-opening sale at all Lower Mainland stores, so some new DS games were only 2 for $50. I picked up Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box and Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

I sped through Professor Layton in about 4 days. The sequel to Professor Layton and the Curious Village continues on with the adventures of Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, hearing about the mysterious Elysian Box, which has killed one of the Professor's collegaues. The pair have to travel through several villages across Europe to find clues about the mysterious box and solves countless (over 150!) puzzles. The cut scenes are beautifully produced and the video quality is excellent. Extras in this game include the chef's hamster, where you find items which can be used to make the hamster exercise.

One thing I didn't like was that you had to keep talking to all the characters, and you never know if you're going to have to read the same message again, or if they will have a puzzle to offer you! Then if you don't find the puzzle, it disappears and you can't do it anymore! I finished the game and I still hadn't found a few of the puzzles. I enjoyed this game better than the first one so I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes puzzles or is a fan of the Professor Layton games.
