I just finished playing Plants vs. Zombies on steam and I have to say that it’s amazing. It has great replay value. Even after you finish it, you still have a lot of new things to do. You can replay the old levels and, in addition to that, you can check out the other modes as well. You have to finish Adventure mode to be able to play puzzle mode and the others. It’s so fun to play and I’m so glad I did. I highly, highly, highly recommend this game to anyone who has a steam account.

If you don’t have a steam account, it’s free to download and install. This game was only around $10.

Xbox Kinect

I’m sure you guys have heard of the new Xbox Kinect. It’s sort of like an upgraded version of the Wii. I’ve been watching parts of E3 and I came across the demo for the Kinect. It started with a cute little girl playing this game called “Kinectimals”

The little girl was so cute and the game looks great. I’m sure children are going to love playing this game. I sure hope that Kinect will work this well when people purchase it. Apparently you don’t need a controller to play and it’s a lot more interactive. It gets gamers out of their couches and into the action. I’m really looking forward to trying it out.

That White Whale

Ok, so I’ve been seeing that white whale a lot recently on twitter. To be honest, it’s starting to annoy me. However, it made me realize how much I use it and how much I’ve become “obsessed” with it. I’ve only been on twitter for a little while and so many people are on it already. I don’t know how twitter started, but many of us spend so much time online. Don’t get me wrong, the internet is a very helpful and nurturing place even with the negativity that comes with it. We spend so much of our time on YouTube and on these networks that we may forget the simpler things in life. I mean, I myself spend hours online and I feel as though I’m missing out on life. Whenever friends and family visit, I feel liberated and completely freed from the digital world. It’s nice to do things that don’t have anything to do with the internet or computers sometimes.  What do you guys think?

E3, 3DS and Professor Layton!

So if you guys have been watching E3 and reading up on what’s new you’d know about the 3DS. It’s pretty sweet and it’s not like the current upgrades that have come out recently. This is truly amazing. From what they say about it, it can display 3D graphics without requiring glasses. I mean it has so many features and capabilities that the DS Lite lacks. Just read the article about it here.

Nintendo 3DS

It has such a clean design and the modifications on it look great. The GBA slot is still missing, but its other features more than make up for it. If you’re looking for a gift for Christmas this year, don’t forget to pick up a 3DS for your loved ones. They will surely love it! I don’t know when it’s coming out or how much it is. If you guys know please let me know in the comments ^__^ Also, let me know what you are looking forward to getting or playing from what you’ve heard or seen at E3.

Before I forget, you have to check out the trailer to the new Professor Layton game coming out for the DS. It looks awesome. The story sounds so interesting. I can’t wait to get it, but first I have to finish Diabolical box :P Click here to view the trailer.


I know I haven’t made a post in a while. I’ve been busy with tutorials and what not. I also started playing Plants vs. Zombies. At first, I had seen a review for this game on Classic Game Room (on YouTube) and I just thought that it was silly. Once you start playing it though, it’s actually pretty good. It’s a really fun game and it’s only $9.99. For a cheap game, you’re getting more than what you paid for in my opinion. So if you have a steam account or don’t have a steam account you should definitely check this out. It’s a must have in your steam collection. If you don’t have steam, it’s really easy to sign up.

I’m sure you’ve noticed the rating system on YouTube has changed. Gone are the days where you can 1-star a video or 5-star even. Now you can either give it a thumbs up for “like” and a thumbs down for “dislike”. The rating system is more akin to how a child rates things they like or don’t like. I think that this is probably one of the worst changes YouTube has made over the years. I mean there are other things people don’t like, including the new YouTube layout and the location of the information box. I know that this rant about the new YouTube rating system is old news but I just thought that I would give my honest opinion about it. Everywhere you look, you will find no trace of the old system. However, I did find a place where you can see those stars again. Look at the picture below. People have probably noticed this before, but I just saw this while I was watching meepocow’s video on YouTube.

Maybe those stars still do exist. You just have to know where to look. It’s too bad we can’t use them anymore.
