Got a WiiU on Boxing Day

On Boxing Day, Chadstone was open late so I drove down there with Ethan and bought a Wii U from EB Games. Had some gift cards that knocked $70 off the $439 price. It came with Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and Skylanders. I didn't really want the last one but they were throwing it in for free.

I've been playing Splatoon a fair bit because it's pretty fun! Ethan seemed a bit skeptical about Splatoon but whenever I start playing a few online matches, he'll be like "my turn?" and want a go. I need to play Mario Kart 8 main game more to unlock the other characters but we've had fun playing that together online too, since you can actually split screen that.

So far Wii U had been way more fun for a gaming system that me and Ethan can play together. I bought a second controller for my PS4 fairly recently but we are struggling to find games that we can play together. I get bored of 1 VS 1 games fairly quickly, so I need to find more co-op things for PS4... which is kinda slim pickings at the moment it seems.

I also bought the Taken King expansion for Destiny on my PS4 because it's on sale atm for $30. I haven't played the expansion myself but Ethan has been enjoying it.

We had Kevin & Bianca over this afternoon to play Risk (board game) and then we played a bunch of video games. I got bored of Risk and we ended the game early to go get dinner at On It (burger place nearby). Kevin bought over a bunch of fighting games for PS3 that he picked up in Japan recently.
