The Purple Knight

I wouldn’t really consider myself to be a serious video game player. Sure growing up, I played a lot of games on my Nintendo Entertainment System, but I was never really that good at most of them. Sucking at a game would of course lead to me quickly losing interest and moving on to the next one. But I wasn’t bad at everything, and those few games that I did excel in, have remained favorites of mine to this day.

A Nova Approach

When Marvel released The Guardians of The Galaxy movie in 2014, no one really knew what to expect. Far from the household names that they are today, back then, Starlord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax were mostly 2nd-3rd tier characters from the Marvel universe at best. But given Marvel Studios’ previous track record, people were open minded at best and for the most part, I think it’s safe to say that the movie delivered in spades.

Going Down Another Doggie Hole

Before our daughter Cecilia was born, both my wife Caren and I were already toy collectors (although she’s not as crazy as I am). So even as a small baby we were already pushing our favorite toy characters onto her in the hopes that she would take a liking to them as well. So by the time she was around 2, we were the proud parents of a little toddler who could name all the main members of the Justice League, Guardians of the Galaxy as well as most of the original 10 Care Bears.
