Merry Christmas, everyone. The year is coming to a close. Jessica and I have a big announcement tomorrow for the blog. We will also be doing a channel update and a year in review post. But for now. Enjoy the holidays, everyone.
Shin Megami Tensei V is on Sale (Via Walmart, Gamestop and Amazon
Hey guys, if you’ve been on the fence about picking up one of the hottest and latest Nintendo Switch exclusives, now might be the best time. I looked and looked for it to be on sale during Black Friday. Honestly, I didn’t see any good deals. Now that Shin Megami Tensei V is marked down $20 off at most major retailers, this creates a perfect buying opportunity for Nintendo Switch collectors and RPG enthusiasts alike.

I’m sure the game is worth the full asking price considering it is the next in a long running JRPG series, The Shin Megami Tensei franchise. A critically acclaimed series developed by the prestigious Atlus studios. Still, every bit of savings helps this close to the holidays.
Let me know if you guys end up picking up the game.
I Started Playing Brilliant Diamond.
The game has been an absolute blast so far. Gen 4 is, in my opinion, the best generation in the series. Admittedly, I played a lot my first day playing it. The next few play sessions I’ve been trying to trick my Switch into thinking it’s Friday to catch a Drifloon but I am not having success with that. Again, other than that, I am loving it. The battling is fun. The Pokemons look great. And it’s awesome to revisit one of favorite regions.
Have you had a chance to play either Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl yet? Let me know in the comment section down below! Thanks for reading and have a great day everyone!
Birthdays as an Adult Have Lost Their Magic
Maybe it is growing up. Maybe it is a change in prospective. But as you get older, birthdays lose their magic.
Today is my birthday. When people figured out I was working, everyone told me I should have asked off. My initial thought, why? I took Saturday off to go to a family Thanksgiving event. I have Wednesday and Thursday off. I would rather take today and get money than take today off.
I think a lot of working adults will understand that. My life isn’t stressful enough where I need this one night to unwind. I got Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes for my birthday. It will probably be next week before I play them (unless I randomly give in to the urge tonight). Even though I’m off, I’m still busy with family functions this week. I have an insurance inspector coming to look at my house tomorrow at 10am. I just got off work. I’ll probably spend the rest of the night rearranging my house for tomorrow and then go to bed.
My mom wanted me to take off work and spend the day with her. But it’s just not the same. People ask me what I want for my birthday, nothing comes to mind. It’s not that there aren’t things I want. It’s just I don’t spend the month leading up to it thinking about it like you do when you’re younger.
I’d be very interested to hear what you guys think about the matter. I bought the $1 Walmart mint chocolate cookies from Walmart as a treat to myself. Outside of that, today was a normal day. So make sure you sound down in the comments. I want to hear if this is something all adults eventually go through or not.
More Unboxing Videos Soon
Hey guys. I just wanted to say between work and Walmart I’m not going to be able to have the videos public. However, I have filmed some video game picks and another Pokemon Celebrations unboxing. I also got a Digimon Double Diamond box to unbox as well. So if you like card game unboxings, keep a look out on the blog and YouTube channel.
My College FootballPlayoffs Top 10 Poll as of November 21st, 2021
3 more top 10 teams fell. We’re late in the season, too. All loses start to feel like bad losses as the margin for error shrinks and shrinks. Let’s break it down.
#1 Georgia- As always, there was never a moment of panic as Georgia marched on.
#2 Cincinnati- Are we done pretending that Cincinnati hasn’t earned the number 2 spot? They bounced a perfectly respectable SMU team 48-14. If they can close out their last two games, they’re in. Come on.
#3 Ohio State- If you thought the argument for Alabama or Oregon or Ohio State at 3 was close, Ohio State put that discussion to bed. While Alabama struggled to put away a middle of the pack Arkansas team at home and Oregon came out completely flat, Ohio State rolled the formerly number 7 team, Michigan State 56-7. They lost early and have been destroying teams since. They cannot over look a hungry Michigan team now, though.
#4 Alabama- I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. This is not the Alabama of old. They struggled with a highly uncreative Arkansas team. Admittedly, they should’ve blown Arkansas out, but could never get enough momentum to put them away early. They continously let lesser teams hang around which has never been Saban’s M.O. They locked up the West yesterday and won a date with Georgia. They still have to survive Auburn though.
#5 Oklahoma State- This was a tough decision between Notre Dame, Michigan and Oklahoma State. It comes down to the fact that they beat Baylor. The other two don’t have a win nearly as good. Theyre a field goal away from being undefeated. They’ll get a chance to really claim this top 5 spot if they can beat Oklahoma and double down and beat Baylor twice.
#6 Michigan- I like this Michigan team a lot. But it boils down to no signature wins. The Penn State win was a good one but it was close. They lost to one of, if not the only ranked team they’ve played. Of course none of this matters if they handle business and go 12-1.
#7 Notre Dame- Notre Dame certainly edges out Oklahoma when you’re talking about boring 1 loss teams. Again I question their ceiling with Cincinnati hanging out of the top 4. They only get one more show case. Whereas every other team so far has a shot at 2 games.
#8 Baylor- It will be interesting to see where all the two loss teams rank with Michigan State and Oregon joining Baylor. I currently have Baylor as the highest of the bunch. You could argue Michigan State and Oregon each have better wins but they also both have blow out losses as well as losses to teams they should have beat. Baylor . Baylor doesn’t control their own destiny either. They will be rooting for Oklahoma State to beat Oklahoma. This should secure their spot in the Big 12 championship game.
#9 Oklahoma– A lot of people overreacted to Oklahoma all season. But to those people’s credit, Oklahoma still doesn’t have a lot of impressive quarters. It still doesn’t look like they’ve clicked even with the QB change. Could an impressive win over Oklahoma State catapult them into the top 5? Tough to say at this point. One thing is clear though. A loss to the Cowboys and all the hopes and dreams of the season are over.
#10 Mississippi- In my power rankings, I have Michigan State ahead of Mississippi. However, Michigan State’s blow out loss came at such a bad point in the season, the win over Michigan couldn’t save them. Mississippi has losses to Alabama and Auburn somehow. But Ole Miss has also beat Texas A and M and Arkansas. Beating Vandy last week isnt super impressive. Its more so the manner of how Michigan State and Oregon lost that allows Ole Miss to maintain the #10 spot.
So there you have my top 10. As always, next week will be even more telling as Michigan faces Ohio State, Alabama and Auburn square off and Oklahoma and Oklahoma State look to settle things once and for all. Tune in next week for more!
I Applied for My First Side Hustle!
Don’t get me wrong, I do love my job as I have alluded to in previous blogs. I get to put Pokemon cards online for my local hobby shop. Sadly, though, it just pays $10 an hour. Looking ahead to 2022, I have financial goals. I’d like to save more, make more, invest more and take two vacations. Greedy! I know!
However, I feel like my current job is only going to get me so far. Now, this new side hustle isn’t crazy money. But it is still money. It will allow me to make money when I’m off or have free time. That’s the exciting part.
Now I have applied and I’m just waiting to hear back. I’ll do an update blog whenever I figure out the verdict.
A Hat in Time Has a New DLC!
A Hat in Time teased a new announcement yesterday. That announcement turned out to be the first in hopefully a long line of new DLC. Launched under the name Creator DLC, Vanessa’s Curse will be live November 27th, 2021.
Vanessa’s Curse will be the first mode dedicated to the online feature. Make sure you watch the trailer because there’s a lot of goodies to unpack here.
Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrIKafwyKmQ
The more exciting news here is that this is a new branch Gears for Breakfast will hopefully put to use. They allow nearly anyone to propose an idea for upcoming DLC. Then they will accept applicants they approve of which will give them access to more tools than regular modders. This allows fellow modders to make larger in scope projects. I am hoping to see even more creative modes and levels as time goes on. Each project will have a unique price and Vanessa’s Curse’ price hasn’t been announced yet.
So, yes. This mod looks good and brings something fresh to the A Hat in Time game. But what is truly exciting here is to see what all comes out of it. I look forward to it. I will be covering this DLC soon after it comes out.

Sometimes Work Sucks
I have an awesome job at a hobby shop. I put cards online for a living. But lately there has been some real problems.
I won’t go into it because, while the blog is a collection of my personal thoughts, I don’t believe in airing somethings out. So I’m just hopping on here to vent not to do a tell all. This blog is coming out so close to midnight because a co-worker and I talked for two hours about things we wish we could do at the shop and things we wished we could change.
I have some blogs planned for later so hopefully tomorrow is back to regular content. Thank you guys and have a great day!
