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! 😉

Burger King Cheesy Tots Potatoes REVIEW 🍠

I almost didn’t do the review.  As you know, I don’t tend to follow the crowd most of the time.  How many reviews and personal opinions do you need for a single item?  I always like to mix it up.  But, the Burger King Cheesy Tots Potatoes peaked my interest and taste buds enough, I had to jump on the tots train.

That said, here is today’s video.  Feel free to comment and don’t forget to share and subscribe.  Thanks!

Until next time, HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!

EsianMall Deluxe Geek/Gamer Snack Box Unboxing! 🍱

I love subscription/mystery boxes!  It’s like Christmas all over again when I get a chance to open one.  The suspense makes me giddy.  Well, I got that chance when I was contacted by the people at EsianMall, asking if I would be interested in getting one of their Snack Box offerings.  After taking a look at their web site, I was intrigued.  Not only did they have a mystery box filled with Asian snacks, but it included gamer/geek stuff too!  The best of both my worlds.  The rest is history….

Today, as a bonus video for the week, I’m unboxing their EsianMall Deluxe Snack Box.  You can check the video out below.  Be sure to leave a comment and share it with your friends.  Thanks, gang!!

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!

Charge Mobile Faster With A Portable Power Charger

If you’re someone who works online and mobile, one of the primary things in your arsenal should be a portable power charger. It’s just something you have to have, especially when you’re mobile yourself and out on the go.

Portable Power Charger

I have my Google Chromebook, my Nexus 7 tablet, and my mobile phone. That’s enough devices that are going to die a slow power death when I’m working down in Portland or wherever I may be as they are being used. With a portable power charger, it’s not a problem not being around a power source to recharge.

I have two. I recently picked up a Energio SLIM Portable Charger and I also have an AmazonBasics Portable Power Bank. Both are basically the same thing, just different companies. While the Energio SLIM is a tad lighter and includes an adapter for charging your iPhone, the AmazonBasics has a sweet carrying pouch to protect the charger. That is really about the only differences. They both get good ratings on Amazon.

I like having two with me, although I really doubt I will ever NEED both for a single outing. But, better safe than sorry. It’s like having two batteries for my camera. I like to be prepared for anything. Maybe someone I’m with may need a charge and then I’ll be glad I brought both of the power chargers along. They will, too 😉

You can see my review of the Energio SLIM Portable Charger below. I haven’t yet reviewed the AmazonBasics Portable Power Bank, but here’s a link so you can check it out yourself.

Both chargers run around $20 a piece and they will charge your mobile devices in half the time it takes to do it by plugging it into the wall. Put your tablet and phone in Airplane Mode to help it charge even faster.

Bottom line is, you need to make sure you don’t run out of juice when you’re in the field and a portable power charger will do the trick.
