Roku Express vs NVIDIA Shield TV Gaming Edition. Which Streaming Media Player Is Best? The Answer Might Surprise You.

I picked up the NVIDIA Shield TV Gaming Edition on sale for $159 at Best Buy on Black Friday, regularly $199. I also had a $100 gift card to bestbuy from previous sponsored posts I've done for them. This is not a sponsored post. This is me providing my initial feedback of the device as I've now had it for five days. My end cost was $59.99 Earlier this year I purchased a Roku Express for I believe it was $29.99. It is the most basic cheapest Roku device, in hindsight I wish I'd purchased one with voice controls which I believe start around $49.99. I've had my Roku for about six months. I thought I'd be "replacing" my Roku with the NVIDIA Shield TV Gaming Edition... but that's not the case... Roku is superior in almost every single way. NVIDIA Shield is only for very technical people, with...

Review Get Fit with Walk it Out Konami Wii Game

I recently began revamping my lifestyle to try to be healthier. To that end, as part of this healthier lifestyle, I began to play some of my old wii games that encourage you to get up off the couch and get active while playing the games. My favorite “weight loss” game has always been Konami’s “Walk it Out” for the original Wii. Yes, Wii U can play wii games in case you’re wondering. However, the switch cannot. It is worth mentioning that while Wii games can be beneficial to help motivate you to want to lose weight, they are probably not as effective or strenuous as other forms of exercise. I make no claims that playing these games will help you lose a significant amount of weight, but if you’re like me (and millions of other Americans) who absolutely hate exercising to the point where y...

Are the Relationships in Scum’s Wish Really So Bad?

I recently discovered Scum's Wish from an article describing the relationship between Mugi and Hanabi as abusive. While the anime begins with Mugi and Hanabi both in love with other people and only using each other to satisfy their physical desires, is there really anything inherently wrong with this? People have casual relationships all the time. Not all relationships are built around love. Not only that, but, I think that love is a feeling that can grow over time. Hanabi and Mugi may not be in love just yet; but that doesn't mean they won't fall in love by the end of the anime or manga. There has been much foreshadowing already hinting at this possibility. Could Hanabi and Mugi ever fall in love or have a happy ending? Here are some clues that hint that they may be falling for e

Porter Robinson’s Shelter Is an Anime – and Here’s Why

I just watched a short film - or more precisely, a music video by Porter Robinson. Although he is an American artist, he contracted with A-1 Pictures a famous Japanese anime studio -- It's being marketed by crunchyroll (who most people associate with "anime") -- and the film first debuted in Tokyo, Japan, to an audience of Japanese people. Although it is marketed for worldwide release and distribution, it was developed, drawn, animated, and premiered first in Japan and made by a famous anime studio consisting of largely Japanese staff. It is a Japanese animation, or anime for those facts alone. It's true that similar "Big Eye, Small Mouth, Brightly colored" animated films are NOT anime - I fully agree. RWBY and Avatar and Kora for example are not anime - because they are not made by Jap...

The Benefits of Playing Pokemon Go Outweigh the Risks

I was not into Pokemon Go when it first launched. It wasn't until my mom began playing that I took interest. For a few reasons, first, when the game first came out, there were numerous game crippling bugs which made it almost impossible to play. It's also a rather difficult game to learn at first, it gives absolutely no guidance, direction, tutorial, etc. This combined with the bugs in early days made the game frustrating and a lot less fun than it is now. Second, I'm not one to enjoy exercise. It's not that I'm "Lazy", but well... exercise is "painful" and "tiring" and "annoying".  When I started playing Pokemon Go, I thought how annoying or stupid it was to have to go outside. This was when I was playing it alone in the first few days of the launch. This began to change when I found s...

The 10 VR Games We Can’t Wait to Play

Title: The 10 VR Games We Can't Wait To Play Virtual reality headsets are here, and for the right price you can own one now. For most of us, however, the transition to VR remains just around the corner as the leading headsets are only just being rolled out, the price point remains high in most instances, and the lists of available games are still evolving. However, we have a pretty good idea of what kinds of games we can expect on various VR devices, so in this post we wanted to take a look at 10 titles that look like they can't miss. Project Arena Designed for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Project Arena should be one of the more exciting new concepts for early VR.

Will You Miss The Skinship Feature in Fire Emblem Fates?

By now you've already heard that Fire Emblem Fates is getting censored for it's American release due to suggestive themes such as Gay Conversion, Rape, and Heavy Petting. The Petting feature is the latest in a long list of features and scenes to be removed for a Western release later next month. Nintendo of America stands by their decision to cut such items, stating that it was necessary to do so for localization. Regardless on where you stand on this issue, my question is, will this significantly impact your decision to purchase this game? The fan translation begun nearly a year ago and from what I understand, the translation is complete and available (with a little effort and searching and digging) for those who seek to play the game as the creators intended, without censorship. How you...

We Have Removed Bidvertiser Ads

In an effort to try to improve our site, and as a followup to my post yesterday, regarding another Pay Per Click program (InfoLinks), I have disabled today also Bidvertiser ads which were causing a popup and redirect as well. As well as similar issues such as highly irrelevant ads, and just "spamming" my readers. I won't stand for that, no matter how "profitable" an ad network may be. After I finish this wordpress post, I am also going to disable the email collection "splash" screen that appears once per day when visiting the site. (Which is not related to Bidvertiser) (but keeps me from having to make a separate post about that as well). On a final note, I also just disabled Chitika Mobile Ads, because I noticed they too were using popups and obscuring my site content. I do not think ...

If you’re a WordPress user, do not use InfoLinks.com to Monetize Your Site

For those curious, this is the plugin in question: https://wordpress.org/plugins/infolinks-officlial-plugin/  Nearly a 5 star rating and 10,000+ active installs. One would think it could be trusted.... but... Any program that continues to run it's script after I "deactivate" the plugin in my admin control panel, is a bad, malicious program. I deactivated the plugin from my wordpress site, as well as logged into my InfoLinks dashboard, disabled each one of the different ads I had enabled such as in text ads, in fold ads, etc, and still kept getting ads that covered, obscured, and hid my content. Not only that, but I got popup and popunder ads, or ads which forced open new tabs taking the readers away from my blog. The only way I finally found to get rid of the ads was to delete the p

Clannad Available on Steam In English For a Price

Clannad just went live on steam about 24 hours ago. If you order by December 1st, this game can be yours for the "low" scoff price of $42.99 after which it will return to it's full price of $49.99 - Get it here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/324160/ I ordered it. (Mostly because I won some paypal money last week, so I only had to put about 9 dollars with it, to get it, otherwise I wouldve waited til after the holidays, so many other things need my money and attention right now.) I've played the fan translated version years ago.... It's one of my favorite novels ever. But let's check the math here..... Clannad (English version) had a very successful kickstarter campaign. They estimated they could make this project happen for $140,000. They raised almost $600,000 during their kicksta

Tree of Savior Closed Beta First Impressions Archer vs Wizard Levels 1 through 20

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get into Tree of Savior Closed Beta, thanks to a very nice giveaway at treeofsaviorgame.com - Thank you guys so much for the beta key. I will upload some videos soon <3. Although Closed Beta Phase 2 is ending in just a few days, my time with it has been short but enjoyable. Overall here are a few first impressions of the game itself, then I'll give some feedback about the early levels of two of the classes that I played. The game is rather lonely in the early levels - I don't know if this is because it's possible to solo then, or because I got into the beta so late and everyone has already formed their little groups. I only had one person "talk" to me, if you could even call it that. I didn't respond, because I felt it was rude/annoying. He simply ty

Hook’s character is totally wrong in new PAN movie

Over the weekend, I went to the movies with my grandma. We saw PAN, a supposed origins story for Peter Pan (and other characters such as Sme and Hook.). The movie was just "okay." I thought Blackbeard was really well cast. I have terrible facial recognition so I didn't realize until later that it was Hugh Jackman from Xmen Wolverine fame. Blackbeard was really super funny (and a little bit creepy) and on point. The music in the film was awesome - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit in a children's film?! And seeing Hugh Jackman singing the song was outrageously funny too. We happened to be the only two people in the theater so I was singing along also. And the special effects were superb. Similar in scope to the effects found in movies such as Avatar. It had great cinnematics... but suffered f...

Which Video Game Console Should I Buy?

The question that never dies, "Which console is best?" It has fans fiercely defending their champion console while bashing rival consoles; but what everyone fails to realize is, the console is only as good as the games available on that console. I'm talking about exclusive titles for those systems. With the holidays almost upon us, I hope you will find this information useful if shopping for a new gaming device for yourself or for a gift for someone else. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Sure, specs matter; people want the best graphics, fastest processors, and biggest hard drives. For that, nothing can beat a PC. They will always be on the cutting edge of technology, AND when yours starts to show signs of age, you can upgrade it easily. The same cannot be said fo...
