Drive headlong into some great times with Dead Ahead!

dead ahead

 

Though this awesome little zombie killer is free for the Iphone and Android, it has a wealth of content to offer the player and hours of game play. Published by Chillingo and developed by Mobirate, with art by an artist from Deviantart.com with the username soft-h, who’s only listed real name is Eugene, Dead Ahead is the first full-fledged game he’s worked on, and it is quite the success in my opinion. The world has been ravaged by the generic zombie super-virus, and all you have left to get you out of the undead-infested town is a scooter and a pistol. How long can you survive before the horde consumes you?!

Battle Pack 3: Monster League Review

IMG_1269What’s up guys Patrick here with another review for one of my favorite games ever Yugioh. My friends from Konami sent me over some packs of one of their new sets that just came out, Battle Pack 3. Now I had loved the previous sets of the battle pack series, and I had great expectations for this set. Now off the back looking at the card list I had some main cards that I wanted to get, like the forbidden items, herald of lights, breakthrough skill, pinpoint guard, and all the Xyzs you know staples. Now I know that these sets were made for sealed play, but I still also treat them like regular packs, still trying to get some cards for my decks and these series always gave me a better opportunity to do so. Since this set is almost all reprints, you all most likely know what the cards are and what they do, but this is the first Battle Pack set to release new cards in it that you can only get from this set. Cards like Quantum Cat, Swamp Mirrorer, and Typhoon are new to the series and could most likely see tournament play if the duelist know how to use them to their advantage in their monotype decks.

The Rapid Rise and Fall of What Could Have Been the Greatest Grand Theft Auto Ever

GrandTheftAuto5Banner

 

One of the biggest anticipations of the previous year was the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto Five (GTA5), sequel to GTA4, one of Rockstar’s bigger snafus. With a barely-interesting plotline, characters so annoying you silently wish a mission was coming that involved their death, and vehicle physics so laughable that stealing a nice sports car wasn’t really much better than any random muscle car and helicopters seemed to have a mind of their own, a suicidal mind. But despite those failures, there was still a strong anticipation for GTA5. Even I let my hopes rise a little for this game, and it did deliver, but only partially. Part of this game is legitimately polished and fun to play, the other half is, in my opinion, one of the biggest wastes in potential for a game this year.

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!

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.

Dragons of Legends Review

IMG_9918

This week I got to review and amazing set thanks to my friends at Konami known as Dragons of Legends. Now most of these cards are newly released, but the majority of them were released in the tv show back in the days, I believe season 4 which was Waking the Dragons. Anyways this set held a lot of good solid heavy hitting cards plus a lot of supporting cards, which a lot of duelist are going crazy over for. This set has 51 cards in it, 30 super rates and 21 secret and you get 5 cards per pack.

‘OCULUS’ Movie Review with Exclusive Interview

ocu

Cast: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garret Ryan

Director: Mike Flanagan

Official Film Synopsis: “Ten years ago Tim Russell (Brenton Thwaites) shot his father (Rory Cochrane) after he witnessed him killing his mother (Katee Sackhoff). He’s sent to a mental hospital because of the shooting but also because he believed that his parents’ deaths were due to an evil supernatural entity that possessed an antique mirror in their home. This leaves his sister Kaylie (Karen Gillan) to face life alone until, years later, Tim is finally released. All he wants to do is move on from that fateful night, but in his absence Kaylie has become convinced that the mirror is indeed possessed, as she has discovered that the mirror’s previous owners throughout the centuries have had similarly bloody pasts. Kaylie is determined to prove that the mirror is responsible for the murders as opposed to Tim or her father.”

LUFTRAUSERS Review

LUFTRAUSERS is an arcade-style game made by Vlambeer that’s just one big dog fight. The game format is very simple but very fun. You start off with three objectives and a basic plane; you complete these objectives to level-up and gain more parts to your plane. The upgrading system is a lot of fun to play around with. You have three types of parts you can upgrade and about 125 customizable parts in all.

Deck of the Week: Dark World

I’m not very experienced with Dark World decks and now I know why. I don’t like how the dark worlds work. From what I experienced it’s all about luck the entire duel. Some might say “Isn’t Yugioh always about luck?” well not necessarily; you can have a deck so well built that every single time you draw you will get a good hand. For example, my fairy deck is so well packed together that I will always have a good hand.

Deck of the Week: Green Goblins

Someone from Dueling Network.com wanted me to try out his goblin deck that he named “Green Goblins” because he loves Spider-Man. I loved the deck because of its name but also loved it for how it played. It didn’t really over power the opponent but mainly tricked the opponent with the effect.

The effects of these cards allowed me to let a lot of my monster die but only to kill my opponents monster or be special summoned later. Even though I said this deck didn’t really over power my opponent a lot I  could with equip spells. Because I can special summon a lot of times once a turn the card “United We Stand” could make a level 3 monster with 500 attack have 3000 attack easily.

Deck of the Week: Spellbooks

Spellbook decks contain Spellcaster-type monsters with mainly Spellbook spell cards. To make a good Spellbook deck you need a lot of options in getting a Spellbook spell card from your grave or deck to your hand. There are some Spellcaster-type monsters you need to make this deck complete like Spellbook Magician of Prophecy, Temperance of Prophecy, and some others. I’ve always loved the Spellcaster-type monsters since I started Yugioh so I enjoyed making this deck.

Deck of the Week Special: Teamed Decks – Noble Samurai

I wasn’t able to do Deck of the Week last week so I thought this was a great time to do something new. This is Six Samurai and Noble Knights working together and I have to say it’s a pretty good deck. The main reason I wanted to test this combo was because of the rapid summoning of Six Samurai and the Noble Arms cards of the Noble Knights.

This deck is actually very powerful. The Six Samurai work together very well with the Noble Arms equip spell cards. I didn’t have to use XYZ cards that much because the boosts that the Noble Arms gave were plenty to make this deck very strong.

Chrono Trigger- A Great RPG

chrono-trigger-ds-20081120033316653Chrono Trigger is an immense RPG filled with plenty of fun quests. The great thing about this game is it is a pretty rare game and is also from the makers who created Final Fantasy and Dragon quest ( you will see similarities between them).

Chrono Trigger is reminiscent of the classic Final Fantasy 1 on the GBA, it follows the same system in battle and also the way the world is set out. The main premise of the story is: Chrono is the main guy of the game and he encounters people on the way who join him in fighting terrible monsters which  lurk in the land!

Deck of the Week: Six Samurai

Well, I can honestly say that I hate versing this deck. I was trying to avoid the Six Samurai but I had to try them out eventually. But playing with this deck isn’t that bad but the special summoning is insane. I found myself dominating the duel more often if I would just take a second to plan things out. Normally I can get a deck and just jump into the duel but not this one.
