The Game “Pure” For PS3 Is a Best Seller

blog-pureI have to admit that I’m not always the most up-to-date when it comes to video games. I haven’t played on in years and even if I did, I don’t remember being good or having at “knack” at it whatsoever.

However, I happen to have two nephews that love video games and would play all day, every day if their mother allowed it. She doesn’t, though, so they sure appreciate their one hour a day that they are allowed to play.

There is this game called “Pure” for the Play Station 3 and they really want it to add to their collection. They have birthdays about a month apart, so I am going to get this as a gift that they can share and play together. This is a top seller and it sounds like you can customize and build your vehicle from the ground up and train to learn tricks. My favorite part about this game is that it’s rated “E” for “Everyone”, so there is no violence involved!

Sony PlayStation4

blog-ps4

 

If you’re into technology and gaming, then I’m sure you’ve heard about the Sony PlayStation4 that is set to release this coming fall.

You’ve probably already noticed from the picture that the console and controller have changed. But why put $399.99 into this gaming system? Here’s why:

-Games. There are some games that will be EXCLUSIVE to PS4 that aren’t available for PS3. They are (to name a few) Killzone: Shadow Fall, Metal Gear Solid V, The Phantom Pain, Battlefield 4, The Order: 1886, The Division, and Watch Dogs.

-Technology. Did you know that you can use smart phones and tablets as second screens for this system? This takes technology to a whole new level! Mark Cerny, the lead system architect for the PS4 said that the console’s architecture is “like a PC, but supercharged.” It uses an 8-core 64-bit x86 “Jaguar” CPU, 8GB of unified GDDR5 RAM, a 500GB (user upgradeable) local hard drive, and  APU technology, which is typically reserved for “top of the line, high end graphics cards.”

-Graphics. The number one reason that people are wanting to get their hands on the PlayStation4 is graphics. The PS4 will be competing with the Xbox One as far as release date, but graphics for the Sony system wins by a long run in the graphics department.

An Ear and Nose Trimmer for Him

blog-ear and nose

 

My boyfriend just celebrated his 27th birthday. We had a blast! Our friends came over for some grilling (of course…) and we had a campfire out in the yard. We set up the bean bag toss game and played some bocce ball as well. I can definitely say that fun was had by all!

I always tease him because he is 4 years older than me. I tell him that he’s getting “so old” and that I should’ve got him a cane for his birthday. Of course, this is a complete joke as 27 is SUPER young!

However, as guys get older, they DO tend to grow more hair in their ears and nose. It’s very common and sometimes happen younger, depending on their hair growth pattern. this ear and nose trimmer is perfect to get that hard to reach hair. It’s small and super easy to control!

He Can Train His Memory While He Travels

My guy always has to travel for work. I get a little tired of it and so does he. He runs out of things to do on the long, boring plane ride. I’ve gotten him a couple of handheld video games and he seems to enjoy them. It gives him something to do at the airport while he waits to board the plane as well as once they take off into flight.

I found this Memory Trainer and it looks like a lot of fun. This definitely looks like something that Alex would like and I can’t wait to order it. This is a fun way to boost brain power and entertain. There are a dozen games that come in this one trainer. All of them are designed to boost different parts of the brain.

Do you know anybody that would like this? I sure do!

Portable Ping Pong Set for Anyone

This was  a gift my nephew got from his grandma and grandpa. I thought it was the funniest thing! He brought it over to our house one weekend when we had to watch him, and he just took it right out of his back pack. It’s a portable ping pong set. It’s so easy to manuever around and to set up too. He just loves it and the kids had a great time playing with it.

Now, my kids want to get one and I think even my husband does too. Me and him played a few games and it was a great time. We were laughing so hard and it was a great night and weekend to spend with the family. I realized we need more game nights like this. I’m not going to make the kids play with us, but every once in a while it’s nice to put the electronics down and spend more time with the family.
