Dude, Where’s My NERF…

Daylight savings may be the most confusing thing ever. I think it was dark outside at like 6pm or something stupid. Right now it’s barely 7pm, yet it seems like I should be winding down and waiting for my Falcons to put it on the Saints. But noooo, I still have an hour to go. I do prefer the “fall back” as opposed to “spring forward”. For about a week or so it seems like you’ve gained an hour, at least in the morning. When you come home at 6 and it’s already dark there are no savings of daylight, it’s like I lost daylight. It should be called “Daylight Losings Time”. Yes, I see the horrible grammar of the new name and I don’t care. What’s the point of it? Honestly, if there was no daylight savings, would it matter?? Would you wake up in a cold sweat at 3am from nightmares of days that last too long? No, neither would I. It really throws Mrs. Mike off, especially the fall back. She really hates it. I think she may hate it as much as I hate The Real Housewives or gingers. Okay, not gingers. Speaking of gingers, let’s make Monday ginger day here at The Spin and celebrate that day with a picture of a ginger. Why not, right?

Lately I’ve been lucky enough to have received a copious amount of games to play/review/write about/ignore. Okay, they probably weren’t sent to me to ignore, but I’m a busy man… Listen to me, trying to make you guys feel sorry for me for getting games to play that I have trouble finding time for. And what exactly am I busy with? It’s not like I’m the CEO of an evil corporation that will one day rule the known universe. It’d be awesome if I was though, like a super-evil Zaphod Beeblebrox. Anyway, back to the games I get. The most interesting part is when a game shows up on your door that you weren’t expecting. Which is what happened today. Which is what I’m going to talk to you about. As soon as I saw the box I pretty much knew it was NERF:N-Strike Elite. Don’t ask me how I knew it was, maybe it was more that I hoped it was. As I opened it up and found out that’s what it was, the excitement grew. If you remember as far back as September, you’ll no doubt remember that of the EA games I got my hands on, this was one of my faves. The fact that it came with an actual blaster was the icing on the cake. You know what, I don’t like that saying anymore. What is cake without icing? Maybe I should change it to something that makes sense. From now on that phrase will be “sandwich without the crusts”. I mean, cutting the crusts off is something you don’t have to do to the sandwich that causes mass improvement on the overall taste. However, icing is ridiculously necessary on a cake. If someone handed me a piece of cake with no icing I’d slap them right in their face, accuse them of being a ginger and then challenge them to a dual. I get down like that. I haven’t had a chance to play NERF yet. I’ve also not had a chance to shoot Roxy, Mrs. Mike, or get shot back with the blaster. You wanna know why? Because my retail package didn’t come with any darts. I KNOW! What the hell is that about?? I’m not one to complain, but this being a full retail version, I do wonder how many others shipped without darts. I’m 28 and was upset when I didn’t have any, I’d be crushed if I was 12 and had plans to shoot my little brother in his face with the blaster. (Side note: The Spin refuses to be held responsible for any kid/kids who decide to hold down their younger brother or any neighborhood ginger and shoot them in the face with the NERF blaster.) If any of you got the game and it came sans darts, leave a comment and let me know. If you got your darts, I hate you. No, I don’t, I take that back. Forgive me? Good. Check below for the un-boxing of NERF:N-Strike Elite below, just don’t hold your breath for any action shots of the blaster in action. Seriously, don’t, you could die if you do.
