What Did You Get This Holiday Weekend?

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinSince the holidays are over and the gift giving finished, I’m back in town and at the helm. I decided that this week we would change our weekly “What Did You Play This Weekend” column to “what did you get.” This will let all of you VGBlogger readers let everyone else know what games will be occupying your time for the weeks to come.

In my case, my dad got me Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin for the Nintendo DS. I was a big fan of last year’s Dawn of Sorrow and since this is a similar title it was the only game I actually suggested to anyone. It’s fun, just like the last one, however I think jumping into each portrait and contending with each level within in addition to navigating Dracula’s Castle will get confusing towards the end.

Something else I received was this neat flat keyboard. It’s made out of a synthetic material and you can even roll it up or wash it off with alcohol or a moist towel. I’m still getting used to it, but it’s really quiet and I seem to type a bit quicker while using it. Anyway, the thing isn’t made in this country and the warning it gave in the instructions are fairly amusing. For example, the Roll-keyboard can be used in the below conditions:

  • It must be used on an even working face.
  • It can be used in the temperature of -40C-+80C.
  • It can be used in the damp environment even shallow water.
  • It can be used in the dusty environment even sandstorm.
  • It can be used in the acidity and alkaline environment.
  • It can be laundered by alcohol or disinfector.
    • Hmmmm….interesting. Now check out some of the conditions in which in cannot be used:

      • It cannot be contacted the sharp object.
      • It cannot be contacted the oil or the organic impregnate like acetone and toluol etc.
      • It cannot be pressed when it was rolled.
      • Cannot places the heavy object on it in long time.
      • It cannot be putted into the oven and putted on the fire to roast.
      • We cannot put out strength to twist or pull it.
      • ……………….uh huh. So what did you get this holiday weekend?
