My 10 Favorite Pokemon of All Time

x

I’ve been playing Pokemon since I was old enough to hold a Gameboy in my little hands. It’s apart of me, and I think I’ll still be playing Pokemon when I’m 100.

Since the release of the latest games X and Y, there are officially 718 Pokemon! With that many to chose from, it’s hard to pick favorites.

But that’s exactly what I’m going to attempt to do! Here’s a list of my 10 favorite Pokemon!

Unturned – Early Access Alpha Review

Unturned is a Early Access Zombie Survival Free-2-Play on Steam that is developed by Nelson Sexton. Unturned is very fun and addicting but doesn’t have the best graphics. I was never a gamer that needed high graphics so Unturned didn’t bother me at all with its blocky look.

When you first play Unturned you think it will be a childish game and not fun for the older gamers but it is very complex in weapon customization and the survival aspect, plus it’s super bloody! Shooting a zombie up close with a shotgun almost covers the entire room in blocky bloody goodness!

Borderlands Cosplay (Gaige the Mechromancer)

Untitled

What is cosplay exactly?

“Dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game.”

I love cosplay because it’s a form of self-expression, and it gives you the chance to show off your creativity.

I’ve been playing video games since the dawn of time, and dressing up as my favorite characters from video games has taken it to the next level!

Some people buy the costumes pre-made, but most people make their own. It takes a lot of materials, time and labor, but in the end, it always turns out great!

League of Legends: Debonair Ezreal & Vi

Introducing the handsome Debonair Ezeal and the dashing Debonair Vi! Just seen in the PBE ( Public Beta Environment). Both skins seem to be only model / texture updates which gives me the impression that these skins will be your standard 975 Riot Point cost at release.  Remember that all PBE Content is tentative and iterative – what you see may not reflect what eventually gets pushed to live servers! Manage your expectations accordingly.

Final Verdict Reviews:Slappa Portable Power Bank Unit

POWERBANK

Slappa’s Portable Power Bank dual charging unitpower  is a must have for anybody with electronic devices… so EVERYBODY! What can you really say about a power charging unit. It does its job perfect. Majority of the time i’m on my phone either texting,tweeting, or just playing music. Phones get drained pretty quickly so having this power bank really prevents me from having to look for an outlet.  The power bank unit comes equipped with 2 high efficiency USB 1A and 2.1A power outputs, so you can charge 2 devices at once. It’s compatible with Samsung Galaxy , iPods, iPhones, iPads, MP3 players, Blackberry’s, portable GPS devices and other electronic devices. The size of an iPhone and very simple to use. Plug in the usb end into the charging unit, plug the other end to your electronic device and press the button. Usually takes about 10-20 minutes to get my phone fully charged. Final Verdict: 10 out of 10. 5 stars. 2 thumbs up. ummm… umm… yeah… i’m out of things to rate this product.

Video Game Pickup Lines

Nerd_love_by_k2webdesign With Comic Con right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of my favorite video game pick up lines. If you see a hottie in your favorite video game cosplay, try using one of these great lines on them! These work for online games as well.

  •  I think something’s wrong with my auto-aim, because I can’t take my eyes off you.
  • My K/D ratio is flawless, but I’d die a million deaths if it meant I could be with you.
  •  I usually press “X” to pick up weapons. Does that work for picking YOU up as well?

With the newest Smash Bros game on the horizon, there have been many predictions to which characters would be added. With characters like The Villager, Wii Fit Trainer and Mega Man, the selection is diverse and will definitely make for some interesting battles!

Since many of the new characters and past ones have been from different companies (Sonic, Snake), if you could choose any character from a video game to add to the roster, who would it be?

 

Here’s who I would add:
