PREY Is The Game To Play In 2017

prey video gamePREY has only been out a couple of days and I am so excited about this game. That’s really saying something since I don’t really tend to get excited over video games.  It’s also put out by Bethesda, which is a big shot in the arm.  They tend to put out games I like.

In order to get my attention, a game has to go beyond the typical genres and have a deeper storyline than most. They have to go above and beyond the norm. Good graphics are nice, but not essential. Story and uniqueness is what grabs my attention. PREY has done this.

Here’s the break-down:

“In PREY, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station — your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.”

I have, to this point, refused to watch any player’s game-play. Usually I will look up a game on Twitch to see if it may be a game I want. With PREY, I was convinced since I saw the first trailer and I just do not want anything spoiled for me.

With what I have seen, PREY is very reminiscent of the Bioshock games in their style, look, and unique story. I’m sure that is one reason that I am so excited about it. I have been a huge fanboy of the Bioshocks since the first one.

New video games tend to run about $60 anymore, but I found where I can grab it at a very affordable price.

If you’re looking for something exciting that will keep you involved, I think PREY is going to be the game to do it in 2017. If you are playing it yourself, leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. No spoilers, please! 😉




*NEW* 7 Eleven Pepsi Fire Slurpee REVIEW 🔥

Another day, another review!!  Today, I’m reviewing the *NEW* 7 Eleven Pepsi Fire Slurpee.

I always look forward to new Slurpee flavors and 7 Eleven never seems to be lacking.  This time around, it is a Slurpee with Pepsi and some heat.  Sounded weird, but looked good on the advertisement, so who am I not to try it?

After my review, my son ran over to give it a try.  He had really good things to say about it, actually claiming it was now one of his top favorite 7 Eleven Slurpees.  That’s saying a lot!

Anywho, take care of yourselves and I’ll see you on the next review.




Fidgets Are All The Rage! What Are Fidgets For?

Fidgets are all the rage!  Fidgets are not only the hottest toys right now, but they are helping many special needs kids, people with ADHD, kids and adults in therapy, calming, stress, anxiety issues, and people are finding more needs and uses for these interesting little things every day.

fidgets spinnerWhat are Fidgets?  Fidgets come in all shapes and sizes and can be used to calm, focus, and regulate.  My son has been someone who has fidgeted since he was little.  He was home schooled and simply could not concentrate well unless he had something in his hands, like a pencil, pen, or anything that he could play with.  You’d think it would be a distraction and keep him from focusing on the subject being taught.  Just the opposite!  He learned so much better when he was fidgeting. Fidget for the classroom?  Yes, please!

Research has discovered that there are many people who function so much better when they have a Fidget in their possession.  And, as I said, Fidgets come in all shapes and sizes to fit any person and their particular needs.  The Fidget Spinners are ones most popular with a lot of people.  I keep trying to get my hands on one from my local 7 Eleven who carried them, but as soon as they get a new shipment in, they’re sold out again.  It’s crazy cool!

Finally, kids are discovering and enjoying something that doesn’t harm them and isn’t something completely worthless, but actually helps them!  The best part is, they may not even realize it.  To them, a Fidget may be just a toy.  More and more parents, teachers, and theapists are realizing that they are so much more.  These little gadgets are not only helping people learn better, but helping with disabilities of all kinds.

Fidgets are the ultimate toy for nerds, too!  That, my friends, is totally freaking awesome!

Let me point you in the right directions if you’re looking to pick up a Fidget or two for yourself, friends, classroom, or family members:

I’ll have more places to get all sorts of Fidgets at good prices in the near future, although these first two are the best and exactly why I put them up first.  Stay tuned!
