This weekend played host to a number of firsts for me. The first being that I played laser quest for the first time ever. That was well space age for an adventurer duck like myself. The second was the first time that I saw Wii U game cases on the shelves. This being in preparation for the release of the console in just a few weeks time. Now as I have mentioned previously I would quite like a Wii U, if only for Rabbids Land and Scribblenaughts. However, when I saw the price tag any dreams I had of owning one were soon dashed. With prices ranging from £210 to £250 and any additional controllers coming in at £100 it is a little pricey for my liking. Granted there have been more expensive consoles in the past but for the amount of use I would actually get out of it I just don’t think it’s worth it. After all I have a Wii now that only comes out in the summer. Also considering that I just blew most of my gold on three new residences and I may well have to splash the cash on a new Xbox come next year, which I can fully justify, this little duck just doesn’t have the pennies right now and after Christmas there will be a lot of parents who also don’t having sent a large sum of money Nintendo’s way.

With all my Christmas shopping out of the way mid November I am now free to eagerly anticipate the coming of the Dragonborn in peace. After all by all accounts old Santa Clause has got nothing on this guy. For those of you who haven’t heard the news yet Dragonborn is the latest Skyrim dlc to be announced, following in the footsteps of Dawnguard and Hearthfire. The word around Skyrim is that Dragonborn is set to be the biggest and the best addition yet. Set on it’s own island, this latest offering from Bethesda sees the return of the original Dragonborn. What? You thought you were the first? Along with what would appear to be rideable dragons. I’m going to have to book myself in at Specsavers because my eyes must be deceiving me. New weapons and new kinds of armour are also rumoured to be making an appearance. Its a very exciting time in the world of Skyrim, especially if you’re big on spears. That’s all I’m saying. Dragonborn sounds as though it’s going to prove to be a much more fulfilling experience than that of Hearthfire which was just about enough to sate your appetite for Skyrim between Dawnguard and Dragonborn. Roll on December the 4th I say. It’ll be like Christmas come early.
