I have been insanely busy...How busy you ask? Well, would you believe that I have yet to play Giants on the Wii or 3DS yet?! Yep, it is true. Not exactly my ideal set-up or planned scenario either, but that is how things go.
That said, I am hopeful that I'll get to start the blind playthrough this weekend. I would imagine by Tuesday you should start seeing the first few videos trickle out.
That said, I still have a lot of unboxing to do.
For a quick run down on that...I have yet to see Hot Head, Sprocket, Flashwing, or LightCore Jet-Vac. I saw pretty much all the rest of Wave 2, but I prefer to hold out for Triples to get Flashwing and Sprocket. I have LC Jet-Vac on pre-order, but TRU.com doesn't exactly have my confidence at the moment.
They shipped my 4 early LightCore figures mid-week, despite me being able to have already picked them up locally on a sale price. But the kicker is they show they are shipping LightCore Hex! I have yet to see anyone with her or mention finding her...The sad news is that someone already got their LC pre-orders from TRU and instead of Hex they had an extra Eruptor. I really hope that isn't the case. I will keep you posted.
For future unboxings of LightCore and Giants I will demo the light-up features. I was unsure how they would look on camera in the Crusher and LC Prism Break vids, but I was pretty happy with it.
It was also requested I do a comparison between 3DS Portals...I will get this done as soon as possible.
One other thing that delayed the start of the playthrough was me needing more space on the computer. I have a lot of raw recordings (huge files) that had yet to be processed. Some of the stuff I wanted up first included Battle Mode vids form SSA. Most of these are simple and don't have commentary...one even has really bad audio skip...but, I had wanted them up, there were lots of requests for them, and now they are up...and more importantly off my hard drive allowing plenty of space for the Giants files.
The first few videos will be the intro to the game, me figuring stuff out, and then as soon as possible I'll go thru and kind of showcase what characters work in the two games (SSA and Giants), what they do where, etc.
After that it will basically be time for the blind playthrough and unboxings as stuff comes in...I still have a few nights worth of unboxings to do, lol.
It is 4 AM and I am very tired...I just posted all the links from recent uploads (minus the Battle Mode stuff) to Google + and Facebook...sorry for the delay, but as always, the blog will be your best source for instant info and updates!
For those of you that have read along, or follow the bog I have something for you...particularly those of you without Granite Crusher or without a Target...He is now ONLINE! I don't know the stock or how long it will last, but it is up now for the first time that I am aware, check it out;
And lastly, if you noticed the current polls are reset, the ones that just closed on the 20th (Giants, favorite new Skylander, favorite new Giant, what are you getting etc) are all "0"s. Same goes for the old poll results I left up. Somehow Blogger has lost all poll data. This isn't just on my site, but all across the platform. Everyone is pretty bummed about it, but I am hopeful a resolution will be found...that is why you have yet to see the results from the last few polls...More on this as time allows.
Well, I hope you are all enjoying Giants, tracking down the characters you want, or are eagerly awaiting a Birthday or Christmas!
