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.

A Look Into Super Smash Bros. 4 at Comic-Con

smash bros banner

Another year, another mob of people clogging the streets of downtown San Diego as they attend Comic-con 2014, one of the biggest video game, comic book, and pop-culture events in the world. The main floor is always jam packed with booths and attractions. People all over hawk their wares; artists sell their great works, and game and movie developers premier their trailers for the next great blockbuster. Of the many game demos available at Comic-con, I was most attracted to the new Super Smash Bros. game that was playable on the 3DS at the Capcom booth and on the Wii U as well at the Nintendo lounge in the Marriott hotel. What I soon discovered was the chance the Smash Bros. team was giving to win a T-shirt. All you had to do was beat a single-player mode then win in a 4-player free-for-all match. The event went on every day with the only restriction that the event withdrew from the convention floor to the Nintendo lounge on Sunday. I was unable to win a shirt, but it was a rather fun way of getting a first look at the new game.

“Day breaks over a landscape consecrated by blood and steel. A battle begins as a new dawn rises.” Along with the cinematic trailer, a dedicated mini site was put up where you could find a behind the scenes video,concept arts, and a ton of wallpapers.

My 10 Favorite Pokemon of All Time

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!

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.

Here’s who I would add:

Sons Of Anarchy Season 7 Teaser Trailer

soa

FX studios has released the first official trailer for the new and final season of their hit tv show, Sons Of Anarchy. The teaser doesnt really show much, all it is is just the main character Jax, cruising on his chopper at night and as his face goes bright to dark due to the street lights, his face flashes from human to skeleton and back to human. Im speculating that either he might die or he will kill very important characters from the show. A reason for my speculation is because the title for this teaser is “Hell Awaits”. I cant wait for this new season to come out which is set for a release sometime in September in this year’s tv show season. Check out the teaser below and give me your thoughts on what it might mean for Jax in the comments.

How I rank the Halo 4 Armor Abilities

jetpack

Halo 4 has multiple armor abilities that can give you a great advantage during multi-player, and everyone has their favorites. I’m going to rank the different armor from what I consider most effective to least effective.

 

Regeneration field: My favorite, this creates a bubble around the spartan to heal you and nearby teammates. I have my spartan configured to have unlimited sprint, so this along with the regeneration field works effectively. You can sprint away from enemies if your health is low, heal yourself, then be fully restored by the time the enemy comes around the corner expecting to finish you off.
