June Brewed - Coffees Consumed, Games Played
June is over? Really? E3 has come and gone, and now we know a little bit about Nintendo's next console, the Wii U, though I really haven't expressed my thoughts about the system in a written piece here on the site...perhaps this month?
July is here, and it's going to be crazy busy(more on that later), so let's take a quick look at the games I played in June, and the coffees I consumed.
Coffees Consumed in June:
Maxwell House Breakfast Blend (Mild) - This big container lasted until about mid-June and it has been one of the more regular Maxwell House coffee blends Mrs. Coffee has bought us in recent months. We enjoy it, as I enjoy most of the coffee blends she purchases us.
New England Coffee Colombian Supremo Blend - This "surprise" coffee purchase has survived a few months, and I have a little left as of the beginning of July.
Two Cups of Chick-Fil-A coffee - Some of you may be thinking, "Coffee, if you work where you can get coffee daily, why didn't you consume more of it?" Well, the main reason I didn't drink more coffee at work is because it's been HOT outside! While I enjoy drinking coffee, I enjoy drinking coffee while it's hot. So, while at work, I stick more with the Chick-Fil-A lemonade, and when I get home in the evening, I brew up a pot of my own coffee.
Folgers House Blend (Medium Roast) - Folgers?! Yea, that's right, Mrs. Coffee actually bought another big container of Folgers coffee in June. We still have about half the container left, and I have been enjoying it. I can't remember the last time Mrs. Coffee purchased us a container of Folgers coffee, but I guess she decided it was time to give them another go...and perhaps the price was also a factor.
Seattle's Best Coffee Organic House Blend - This was another "surprise" coffee purchase for me. I've been enjoying it, and though it's a smaller bag, it did last through June.
Games Played in June:
Monster Hunter Tri - I made good progress in Monster Hunter Tri in May, and I thought that June was starting off with only one quest left in the game until I "completed" the single-player campaign. Well, I was wrong. I still have about three more quests, and a big thanks to my friends from WhoBurnedMyToast.Blogspot.com(and no I didn't burn it!) for informing me of what quests to finish. Here's hoping I'll finish Monster Hunter Tri in July...but July is going to be a crazy month(I think this is twice I've said it now)!
Greg Hastings Paintball 2 (PS3) - Majesco had been kind enough to send me a "review" copy of Greg Hastings Paintball 2 on the Wii last September, and when the game just released on the PlayStation Network, Majesco's PR firm was able to provide me with a "review" code for the game, and I already provided some coverage of the game HERE. The PS3 version plays basically the exact same as the Wii version, though the graphics are definitely crisper overall, and there is at least one graphical effect the PS3 game has that I've noticed, that the Wii version didn't(more on this later).
GoldenEye 007 (Wii) - If you missed my GoldenEye 007 controls post/video, it's the post directly underneath this one...or right HERE. While I recorded some footage of the single-player campaign for the video, I did play several matches in online multi-player, and even played some matches this afternoon(first game for July).
While I drank more coffees in June, than I played video games, I'm hoping to start playing games more often; starting this month!
I failed to finish any game from my backlog list, though I made some progress in Monster Hunter Tri. It really is a beast of a game, and well worth the $30 asking price if you're interested in it.
Anyway, what games did you play in June, and coffees(or other beverages) did you find yourself drinking?
