The “Switch”

   

The Nintendo Switch

What’s going on yall. It’s me D2 again and I just saw the release video from #nintendo for the #NintendoSwitch and these are just a few of my thoughts on what I’ve seen and heard so far.

SWITCHING

  My first thought while watching the video was…”wow, this looks pretty cool”. Then after I saw some of the things that were special about it I was like…”wow, this could be pretty awesome”. The way that you can play it at home on your big TV.

At home

And then if you have to leave immediately you can just “switch” the  side controllers to the tablet styled screen that it comes with and continue playing is great.


Co-op on the #switch

 Now let’s say that you grabbed your #switch and met a friend for coffee and yell were in the mood to play some videogames. You two could play a co-op game on the same screen. Just take off the two side controllers each of you grab one and boom..there you have it.

   Now say you met up with a group of friends that each had their own #Nintendoswitch. You all could link up (wirelessly) and go online and play a multiplayer against other players around the world in a game like #splatoon. Like I said earlier…this is pretty cool!

Multiplayer on the #switch

Problems    The only two drawbacks that I’ve noticed so far were the size of the “side controllers” and the fact that the system uses cartridges like the #Nintendo3ds. 

   1. When the controllers are connected to the portable screen or to the home controller would be fine with me because I have large hands. But me trying to play with a single side controllers which looked like the classic #nintendo controller size may be a little awkward. And I suspect some other people will have the same problem.

Joy-con controllers

   2. They’re using the little cartridges like the ones from #3ds This is sorta weird to me because trying to keep up with those little things can be a hassle. I have a #3ds and I have 2 cartridge games and the rest are downloaded to the system because ingot tired of having to look for them when I wanted to play something else. Having to switch out games is becoming a thing of the past. (LOL sad but true)

Game Cartridges

  And another thing that ran across my mind is how is the memory gonna be. Are we gonna have to buy a overpriced #sd card or is it internal.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Games 

   Just like in the past #nintendo has let me down when it came to games. Yes I love #Mario but I dont wanna play every sport as #mario ie… golf, tennis, soccer, and so on. Yes I like # Zelda but that won’t hold me over for months at a time. 

  Now #nintendo really needs to “put their foot down” and bring on the 3rd party games. I can only imagine how much money they missed out on because us hardcore gamers didn’t like their games. Now it’s true that #nintendo is a “family orientated” console but if they wanna survive in this gaming market they’ve gotta get some hardcore gamers on their side. And to do that they gotta get some darker and grittier games on their system and let the parents decide if they want their children to play those types of games or not. (Sad but true). I saw a list of the 3rd party companies that are suppose to be coming out with games and that’s when I really got excited.

Supporting 3rd party companies.

Overall

     Overall I’m actually excited about the #nintendoSwitch. I’m excited about being abel to play my games while on the go instead of having to use a tablet or my cell phone. And im also excited about meeting up with friends and we are all playing online in the living room.  Thats something we havnt done in a long time.It looks promising and that’s something I haven’t said about #nintendo since the #N64 was coming out๐Ÿ™„

Thank you if you’ve made it to this paragraph. I hope you have a blessed day. Please don’t forget to leave your comments below and as always feel free to share this blog on social media.

That Old Feeling

โ€‹

la sorellina di Morte

As the clock strikes 12
And the moon is in full effect

I’m awakened by my night terrors
So I’m drenched in sweat

I’m not sure how I got here

To this place that I now call home

But I feel as if I belong here
All that’s missing is my throne

But trust me I’m not royalty

I’m just a girl lying in her bed

And there’s a warm body lying next to me

All that’s missing is his head

Then this feeling hits me hard

And my body begins to tremble

A bottle of jack is on the floor

But the remains are less than a thimble 

I drag myself to the kitchen

And cotton mouth sets in

And sitting at the table is another  headless body

This one looks like a twin

So I open my fridge up

And a three finger hand sits atop

But a feeling came to my gut

And told me not to stop

Then I opened the freezer

Where a frozen head gazed

It looked to match the body behind me

I was truly amazed

The head looked delicious

The temptation was hard to fight

I held it up in the moonlight gently with both hands

And then I aggressively  took a bite

The first bite is always the best!

                                              

Lessons from a child

 

 

Fresh hair cut selfie

What’s going on everybody, its me again and I have another epifany  I wanna share with you guys. And this time it’s about this little ball of energy in the picture up above. 

A few days ago I was in my office. Now this isn’t really an office it’s my videogame room. And this is my second favorite place in the whole house, besides the kitchen. This room is full of my most expensive electronic toys. My #computer, my #xboxone our wireless routers. Soon I’ve have my #ps4 and mini  #Nintendo. And me and my son were playing with race cars in this room that I designated just for me and my wife. And here are just a few thoughts that rushed through my head.

1.) He’s in my room playing. (My son has his own dedicated room to play with his toys)

 2.) We’ve been at this for at least an hour. (I’ve never played with race cars. I liked action figures)

3.) I wasn’t upset or mad at all. ( I don’t like when my rules get broken in my house)

I’ve changed! And it’s all because of him. He’s made me break at least 80% of  the rules that I made for myself when I was younger and ready to move out of my parents house. And the more I sit back and think about it the more I realize that even though I’m the parent and the provider. I work 12hrs a day, I read him stories at night, I fed him and changed his diapers when he was a baby and he’s running the show.  And four years later I finally realized  he raising  me!

Below are just a few ways he’s helped me become the person the I am today.

He’s taught me patience

     For 30 years I’ve only been patient for certain things. And a disobedient child was on the very bottom of that list. But raising him I’ve had no choice but become patient. When I’m trying to do something for him but he insist on doing it himself is just one of those things that I had to step back and let him do. Like when it’s bed time and he wants to read his favorite book.  Even though I can do it faster and better than he can I just wait and watch patiently while he struggles with it but eventually gets it. And we celebrate with a high five lol.

His favorite nighttime book :Cars in color

He’s taught me the importance of planning

2months old

Since the announcement was made that he was coming into this world I’ve never planned so much in my entire life. I’ve seen tons of people who didn’t plan for their child and to me it just didn’t seem right. And I just didn’t want to go through that with my son. And since our son wasn’t planned (he was a surprise) we were determined to give him a decent future. A sort off outline incase he gets lost. So we planned…. and we planned……. and we planned. Everything from his haircut to what sport we want him to play when he goes to collage has been planned. And we know that most of those plans are gonna change but it just feels right to us.  Especially to me. Planning things and seeing them come together is a great feeling. ๐Ÿ˜ 

He’s taught me to be consistent 

     Ok this one was tricky. Or mabey it’s just me. When he was a baby I had to learn how to change him. ๐Ÿ˜ท Over and over and over again.  Then we wanted him to start talking and crawling. So each day I came home we’d spend time talking “baby talk” and crawling around on the floor hoping that he’d copy us. Over and over and over again  And then one day he started pushing himself backwards. It wasn’t crawling but it was progress. Then a few weeks later he was completely crawling.๐Ÿ˜ƒ And on his first Christmas he said the words “da da”. That was truly one of my most favorite holidays ever. Because we worked on that one for the longest. So then It was time to teach him to walk. Like any baby he would hold on to something and walk but we wanted him to walk by himself. So we worked on it….over…and over….and over.  Then just a few days before his 1st birthday he started walking. Talk about some proud parents. And just a few short months later he was running and jumping all over the house. Then it came time to use the potty.  Oh my goodness we thought that would never end. The first thing we got him was a kid potty to put in the bathroom but he refused to use it. While I was at work my wife worked with him a lot on this issue. Then she said her father told her to just sit him on the grown up potty. And she did and guess what happened? He went potty.  I could go on and on with this subject but I dont wanna loose your attention while I got it. LOL

He Taught Me To Control My Anger

Heres Another one that was kina hard for me. Now as I said before I dont like when the rules in my house are broken. And with him being a child he really didnt know the “rules”. So naturally hes gonna do things hes not suppose to. Im saying all this now because at the time these thoughts never came to my head. When he did something wrong I’d raise my voice at him. And that usually got him to stop or calm down. But one time he kept doing something and his mom kept telling him to stop so I jumped in. And I really didn’t mean to yell as loud as I did but man I yelled. And the look on his face just tore me to pieces. So after putting him to bed that night my wife and I had a talk about it and she reminded me that he was acting like a child should. And that night after praying about it really hard, I told myself I would learn to control my anger towards him and whenever he’s around me and I’m getting upset at someone or something else. Now I still disipline him to this day, but I dont get angry at him for doing what someone his age does.

He Taught Me To Release My Inner Child

Random selfie (mean mugging)

   Being a parent made me wanna get glasses instead of wear contacts, and so I did. Being a father made me wanna grow a beard because my dad had one, and so I did. But seeing how carefree my son runs around the house in his underwear all the time and playing with his toys makes me wanna be a child again. He has two toy boxes full of toys. He gets to take one and just dump it out in the middle of the floor and play with it all day. He has a “kids” #kindle that he plays his games on, while the living room television is playing his favorite movie and he’s not even paying attention to it. The joy in his eyes he has when everything is going his way is truly a sight to see. He can run from the laundry room to the living room  all day just humming and jumping its really incredible how he’s just full of energy. I love laying in the floor playing race cars with him, I’ve also found myself liking quite a few of his animated movies. #Cars, #Home, and #Zootopia. I’ve even caught myself walking around the house just talking loud for no reason at all. And the best feeling in the world is walking around the house in my boxers and a t-shirt. so yea….im learning to be a child all over again. And its pretty fun. LOL

Thank you if made it to this paragraph of my blog. I hope you have a blessed day! Plz feel free to leave me a comment and don’t ever hesitate to share this #blog. 

Is That All?

My cousin can’t be fooled by #apple ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Intro

Whats going on everybody, Its me D2dalo again and this time I wanna talk to you guys about something that completely boggles my mind. Its when these big name companies release a product that only about 20% of an upgrade from the last big piece of hardware they released and they still have the nerve to charge full price for it! We all have a piece of technology that we bought last year and we give it all our love and attention, and the company has released or are gonna release the sucessor to that product and its not gonna be a big step from the product that we already have. I’ll give you all a minute to think about what yours is…

The Product

Iphone7

In this case though im talking about none other than the #iphone7. Now i’m not an #apple “hater”, and no, #samsung, #google, #android or any of the other mobile companies, aren’t paying me to write this blog. It’s just that I belive that if these big name companies are gonna charge consumers $700- $900 for “next generation” technology then we should be getting “next generation” items. Not “last generation” items with minor tweeks and upgrades. I dont know about you all but i’m getting tired of paying all this hard earned money just so I can stay current with technology. If you read my blog “Goodbye windows, Hello Android”, then you’ll see where i’m coming from. And I kept that piece of crap wayyy longer than I should have. Im still kicking myself. But anyway lets get into it shall we. #Apple held an event some days ago and everybody was talking like they were gonna release a cure that could save the world. The way people were getting hype for this event was seriously disturbing. I didnt watch it the day of but I caught it on #youtube and I didn’t finish the entire video because I was very dissapointed. And alot of #yotube videos that were created that very night shared my exact feelings. Lets discuss a few of the things #apple did shall we.

The Headphone Jack

Headphone jack is gone

As we all know by now the #iphone7 has no headphone jack. And one of the first things that cmae to my mind when I saw that was “what the hek…”. I’ve read that this was a “bold move” from #apple, but in my opinion this was a “lets see if we can get people to buy our new air-pods move”. So now people who get the new iphone cant even listen to their downloaded music in the car anymore. Because if you havn’t noticed, cd’s are going out of style. Then I saw that they would be shipping a headphone jack dongle so you could plug in your wired headphones. And when I saw that I thought “well how the hek are they gonna charge their phones while listening to music?” And by this time I was actually laughing at them. SO thats a huge FAIL in my opinion. If I was an #iphone user i’d want to listen to my music in the car while I charge my phone.

The Air-Pods

Air-Pods

And that leads me to these things. Oh my god! Those were the first three words that fell out of my mouth when I saw those things. They looked like a half of a q-tip hanging out of your ear. And if you are someone with a “small” sized head then I can gaurentee you some of your friends are gonna make jokes about you. I cant rember what all they said about them because I was too busy laughing. So I had to read a few articles the next day to understand them. So they’re #bluetooth obviously, and when you move them close to the phone thay auto connect. You can use only one if you want to use them like an earpiece.Then I heard the price of them and I completly blew my lid. So you mean to tell me that they’re charging $160 for some #bluetooth headphones. Thats NOT “next gen” technology thats “current gen”. And the bad part is that you can very easily loose one of these things and BOOM, $80 gone just like that. And I thought that they would be shipped with the phone but NOPE! These are seperate. Before I end this subject I have a few questions.

1) Is that the best design they could come up with? Because the design is just not good…like…at all.

2) Do any other #bluetooth headphones auto connect? Because you guys know that people already have #bluetooth headphones and they’re not gonna wanna spend $160 just so the phone could auto connect them.

3) Why didnt they ship with the phone? Because this was 45% of the “bold” move that you guys did and y’all didn’t even include them in the packaging! So once again that’s a FAIL in my book.

Dual speakers

Really!?!? #apple used this as a selling point for their “futuristic” product. That’s a “new” feature? #HTC was doing that a few years ago. And they aren’t the only ones. So why is this even part of their presentation? I’ll tell you why. It’s because they didn’t make a new phone they just tweaked the one they already had! And if you wanna talk dual speakers, who do you know walls around with their phones playing loud in public anyway? Besides older people that are to cheap to buy headphones. So in my opinion dual speakers should never have been in the presentation. That’s also a FAIL to me.

Waterproof

Once again. Really! It only took them two to three years to realize that people’s phones might get wetso they should mange it waterproof. It’s not “futuristic” it’s just a FAIL to me.

The Haptic home button

So instead of an old school button they put in a pressure sensitive button๐Ÿค”. Let’s think about that for a second… there was no use for it, it does the same thing a regular button would do and they had to remove the audio jack just so they could install it. Yup it’s a FAIL to me.

The Display

It’s still not a Quad HD so I don’t see the reason that they even thought about mentioning this. When every other phone maker is doing or headed towards Quad HD but they aren’t๐Ÿค” why would anybody call this phone the phone of the future?? FAIL!

The Processing Power

Now this is where the #iPhone really shines in my opinion. The iPhone had always been impressive when it came to processing power and I’m glad that gets an upgrade in the new phone. But i read that they said that the new iPhone is capable of “console level” gaming๐Ÿ˜ฒ. I don’t think that it can and if it could they why would they waste all their technology on a recycled phone instead of releasing a game console๐Ÿ˜ž?? But they upgraded it so I can’t give them much trouble about that. PASS!

The Dual Camera.

Two cameras

The regular iphone7 still sports the rear 12mp camera which is a great camera so that’s not impressive. And the 7+ has two of them. I didn’t see how this is new tech but now you can zoom in closer on photos and get that “perfect” shot. But it’s still just a point -n- shoot camera. I didn’t think photographers are gonna their away thousands of dollars in equipment and just carry around an # iphone7. So why are they offering something ttys sta not necessary?? Sure your photos will look great on Facebook but I still fail to see how this is futuristic! They just put an extra camera on back and it is an upgrade! So….PASS!

The New Jet Black Color

Do I have to be the one to tell people that this is NOT a “new” color< or should I let the figure it out for themselves? Once again #apple showcased this feature because its not an upgrade its just something shiny to take their customers attention off the fact that the are buying the same phone over again. Almost every other phone comes in the glossy black color. And just in case your shiny new phone was soooo coo check out the fine print apple released about it. Soooooooo….FAIL!

Final Verdict

As you can tell from my opinions above I think that the new phone is a carbon copy of the last phone with minor tweaks. And the coolest part about the phone (Air-Pods) you still have to pay for. #Apple should have just updated the software for the iphone6 and just waited until they actually invented something new next year. They really should be a shamed of what they did. But…the new phone sold out within hours of them showcaseing it. I just get tired of big name companies doing this to us consumers and completely getting away with it. Oh well…they aren’t getting any of my money. To be honest, if I had the iphone6 I’d wait till next year to upgrade.

Thank you for reading my blog. feel free to leave a comment stating your opinion weather you agree or disagree with me. And once again this is, has always been, and will forever be MY opinion.

These are just some hilarious memes I found๐Ÿ˜‚

This one killed me๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’€
Can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this๐Ÿ˜…

The Beard Life

What’s up  everybody? It’s me again as usual, and this time I wanna talk to you guys about something else that’s very close to my heart.  I wanna discuss my ” hickey hider”, my “crumb catcher”, my “face fur”, or whatever you may call it. I wanna talk to you guys about my BEARD.

So please sit tight,  I won’t be long but I’m gonna take my time and take you guys on this 3 year…. no imma start earlier than that, let’s say this 10 year journey… from me looking like a boy to  me looking and feeling like a man all because I let my facial hair grow!

In the beginning 

In the beginning I was just like any other dude in his mid twenties. Still in college, working at a sporting goods store, living in his own apartment, and wearing the almighty “chin strap” like a crown on his face.  At the time you couldn’t tell me that every woman I saw didn’t wanna sleep with me. Here see for yourself!

Fresh new haircut

Mannnnn… you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t  the bomb (lol). But I didn’t walk around acting like a duschebag or anything like that.  No that want my style,  I was always laid back and relaxed. I rocked that look for a long time. I loved it because it made me look a little older than I was, which was cool because I liked older women anyway. (Lol) It was kinda funny because with this look  only women my age would try and talk to me and I was curving them all.

A New Look

    So some years had flown by and I was starting to see that every dude I saw was wearing the same facial hair style that I was. And I’m not saying I owned it or anything it’s just that i like to be someone who sticks out or be different than everybody else.  And plus whenever I went into the barber shop it was weird how the people behind me were getting the same style. Even my barber had that style and that was the final straw to me.  So I decided is find a new style, but I needed a haircut at the time so I wore it one last time. I knew it would be weeks before I would get another cut so that’s when I started looking for a different style.  Now when I say looking, I don’t mean I talked to other people about it or I went searching online.  No I would just look at some pictures of myself and try to imagine how I looked.  And to my surprise it didn’t take that long for me to figure out. I decided to go with the “scruffy beard” look because it made me stick out and it didn’t effect my job. In fact one of the younger guys at my job said he was looking for something different so he gave it a try, but his girlfriend didn’t like it so he went back to the”chin strap”. Here have a look at mine.

My first new look

See what I mean. I didn’t look like any of the guys in my circle, and this made me look even more older than I did before. And you all know how I felt about older women at that time (lol)

Old Pictures, New Beginnings

    So a few more years later and then I noticed that my newest favorite facial hair style becoming more and more popular. And this time I told myself that no matter how many dudes copy it, I’m gonna keep it.  So by this time I’ve met my wife, gotten married and we’ve had a child by now. So one Sunday we were having dinner at my parents house and my mom brings out some old family pictures. And I see one picture of my dad when he was around my age, he worked at a plant like I do, and he was holding me (as a baby) about the same age my son currently was. (Coinsedence?…i think not!) But there was one thing he had that I didn’t……. a beard! (And an afro but I never did like the way I looked with a lot of hair on my head) It wasn’t one of those “hippy” looking beards, but it had decent length to it, it looked healthy,  my mom liked it and he looked… well… “manly”. I thought it was kool and at that moment I thought to myself “why don’t I grow a beard”.

I Was Just Thinking That

     A few days later at work, one of my co worker walk up to me and says “ man why dont we grow us a yeard?” So the first thing that comes outta my mouth is ” what the hek is that”, and he said “grow a beard for a year!” He had already started his a month or two ahead of me. So he pulled out his “beard comb”, and I burst out laughing. Then he tells me im gonna need one also, and I start laughing even harder. So I added, and the rest of the day the only thing I could think about was this journey I was going to take. I didn’t tell my wife until I got home fun work because I wasn’t sure if she was gonna like it. But  still the main thing I wondered was how I was gonna look. So I get home later that evening and tell my wife the big news and she gives me a puzzled look, but she says I should try it out. And that put me into hyper drive mode.  

Hyper Drive mode 

     About two weeks into my “yeard” I was going beard crazy. Researching combs,  beard shampoo,  beard balm,  beard oil,  I mean if it had anything to do with a beard I researched it. I bought a handmade wooden beard comb which was no bigger than a penny. (The wife laughed at me for a week for spending  $20 on a Barbie doll comb. Btw) 

#Kent wooden beard comb.

And after two or three beard balm trials I finally found one that I liked. The smell was pretty awesome from this stuff. 


Honest Amish beard balm

    Within about 3 to 6 months my years was growing and looking healthy. Whenever the sun hit it it was shiny, and whenever I passed a mirror or some shiny window tint I couldn’t help but stop and stare at it. 

 
From then to now

   Well from here on it mostly becomes a pic blog. But please keep scrolling. There’s some more reading to be done. 

4 months

     ^This was on Valentine’s Day. And I didn’t wanna let my barber trim it at all but I wanted to look nice because the wife and I had a hot date that night. This was also the time I  realized that my mustache was acting real petty and stubborn.

6 months

    ^This was one of the first times I whipped out my camera and saw my beard shinning in the sun so of course I had to snap a selfie lol. 

10 months

    ^Around this time I joined #Instagram and started smack talking about all the beardless dudes out there by making meme funny memes.  And I even joined a beard club which was pretty fun. But I had to resign because they wanted me to travel and my bank account didn’t allow it  lol. But even though I resigned from the group i still keep in touch with since of the  bearded bros.

13 -14 months

    ^Around this time I was reading into making my own beard oil. And it just so happens that I did. And the wife loved it. I had three main scents.  One with a peppermint  after scent,  one with a citrus after scent, and (the wife’s favorite,) one with a sweet coconut after scent. But sadly the co worker who asked me to grow a beard with him shaved his off. But that didn’t stop me. 

Almost 2 years

     Two years down and I was very proud of myself for not shaving it off. And something kept telling me to keep growing. And after seeing some of the bearded bros I was kinda jealous. So that got me more  motivated. 

2 and a 1/2 years

     I was still expierement with different like and scents. But just fell in live with the three I had already made I gave up on it. 

    And that brings us to today. My beard is still going strong but one thing i have never done that I’ve needed to do for some time is get my edges trimmed because it gets tangled very easily and combing it out is sorta painful early in the morning when I’m getting dressed for work(Lol) I wash it 3 days a week and oil it twice a day.  I’ve considered bottling and selling the oil but never got the guts to do it. I just really never knew where to start when it came to selling it. My son likes it because he knows that when we’re wrestling all he has to do is pull my bread and he wins. My wife says she wouldn’t know who I was if I shaved it off. And I’ve talked so much smack about beardless men that there’s no way I’d shave it off, they would probably hurt me(Lol). 

     But anyway that’s my story in a nutshell.  I had planned to grow a beard for one year and it ended up being for life. And I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made.  I still haven’t given it a name though.

I had really enjoyed my #beard journey.  It’s an experience that I encourage every man to go on!

Thank you for reading my blog. Please leave a comment. I’m always intrigued by what people think. 

I’m not a casual-er.

What’s going on everybody, it’s me again. And I have some… news. I just wanted to let you guys know that,  I…..D2DALO…… play…… #PokemonGo๐Ÿ˜”. It’s almost embarrassing and sad at the same time to admit but if you’ve read a blog that I posted earlier titled “My gaming partner”, you’d know that I’ve been gaming since I was in elementary school,which is about 20 something odd years ago.  So no, I’m not one of these “new age casual” gamers that only play what everybody else is playing. I’m a hardcore, grind all night till the sun comes up, and sleep walk the next day at work type of players. And then brag about it to my co-workers with bloodshot eyes while chugging a #redbull energy drink every couple of hours.  But to admit that I play…..  #pokemon is pretty serious to me.

Not that I think I’m some sorta videogame god or anything like that, it’s just that I don’t like to be put in the same category with the new age casual gamers because they’re just getting started and I’ve been putting in work. I’ve played the first part or original versions of the games that they play today.

(Examples) I played the original #Callofduty, #Mario, #MortalKombat, #GrandTheftAuto, Pokemon, #Zelda, #MegaMan, #Tecmobowl, #Ninjagaiden, #Killerinstinct, and even #PacMan. So pretty much any game that’s “remade” today, I’ve probably played the original.

They can’t keep me

Take #minecraft for example. It’s a cool game but it has no point! And don’t you dare say that “surviving” is the point because if so then they should tell me how long I need to survive, why, and what am I surviving for! But there’s no goal in the end game and therefore I got very bored very fast. On the other hand my younger nephew can play for weeks at a time.  (I just read a review that #Nomanssky did the same thing lol)

Ok now take #MortalKombat pt.1 (the this old days) There were two goals in that game. 1 was to be able to defeat the computer, which was hard… as…hek!  And 2 was to be so great that you could make anybody who picked up the second controller wish they never did. (Maybe those were just my goals) but either way it kept my attention longer than a day, a week, even a few months. Until part two released๐Ÿ˜ƒ! And don’t talk to me about it being to violent because kids today are subjected to more violence than I ever was as a kid, and I’ve never killed anyone!

 Seems like they just want my money

Another type of game that has appealed to the “casual” gamer today are #mobile games. And 70-80 percent of mobile games are free to play but the thing is that you eventually run out of something you need like in game gold. But you really wanna get that special weapon so you’ll be abel to beat that boss (#DungeonHunter5) or you need a special type of energy to continue playing (#CandyCrush). Now there are two ways to get what you want. 1 you can stop playing and wait until your special energy builds back up and then keep playing, or 2 you can open up you bank account. And with todays gamers they seem to be doing the latter. Thats cool with me, its just that I dont do it because it seems like the easy way to get something. And I feel better when I grind and work to get something rather than just pulling out my debit card. It just doesnt give me the same satisfaction. And yes there have been some few games that have done it in the past. That doesnt mean that its right and they didnt get any of my money. The only kind of game that “‘ve ever payed for continuely is a “subscription based” game. This is where you could buy a game and pay a very small fee each month. But thats because they kept adding more and more gameplay and features to it. (#WorlfOfWarcraft) And that stopped real quick when they wanted me to pay full price for an expansion ($50) and still pay the monthly fee ($30). But it didnt stop everybody from playing because they still have millions of people playing that game. So I know they are raking in millions of dollars every month just not from me! And the one company that truly makes my skin crawl is #EASports. They were so greedy that they bought the entire #NFL license so that no other company could make a #NFL football game (greedy bastards!) and in my opinion #Madden sucks!

Everybody Aint The Same

And no Im not saying that all companies today are like that. Infact one of my favorite videogame companies today  still stick to the principle that I love. and thats #Bethesda. They make truly awesome, one of a kind games and you dont have to pull out your debit card to get a special weapon and you dont pay for the game every month.(#Fallout4 #Skyrim, #Dishonored #TheEvilWithin) But now they do do something called #DLC (downloadable content). But its never the full price of the original game and it always worth it because they add soooo much more content just for a small fee. And I know for a fack that they arn’t the only company thats like that, they’re just the first company that came to my mind. Companies like #BANDAINAMCO, and #CDProjekt, are some other companies that follow that model as well.

Im Not The Same But…

I like games where I can get my money’s worth. I like games that can take my mind to  another level while playing. I like games where I have to grind and grind again and again just to get that special weapon. And that way when I meet someone online or someone sits down beside me on the couch whos played and hadnt got it yet, they will be amazed and give me praise for doing it. And in todays gaming society those types of games are almost extinct. (I say as im looking at the big name titles coming out soon for #xboxone)

But I did download #PokemonGo only because I’ve played the color off that game on the #Nintendo gameboy, gameboy advance, and 3ds. I still have my #3ds but rarely play it because I had to carry that and my cell phone around and I hate carrying lots of things. But now that its on my cell phone and I I can take a brisk walk while playing it, it just seemed to make sense. Although I will not be paying for any special items. And yes I know that if I  run out of poke balls I’ll have to pay real money for more if i’m not near a gym but I dont live completely in the woods (like I’d like) so I shouldnt have any trouble finding one. So yea I’ll be playing a casual game for the time being, but DON’T call me a casual-er. lol. 

 This little sucker was watching me type this #blog

 

Thank you for reading this blog. As always your feedback is welcomed. I will update this blog in the future to let you guys know if i still play or if its was truly just a waste of time. So plz check back soon or better yet you can follow me on #twitter to see when I update it.

#EASports = greedy bastards!
*Update*

Mannnnn so far it’s been pretty kool. Within the first week  me and my wife ran outta #pokeballs. So that night around 11pm at night we took a special trip to the nearest #pokestop to get some extra supplies. And the funniest thing is that while we were there for a quick second,  a police officer pulls up and asked is everything ok. And when I told her what we were doing she just responded with ” nice!.. y’all be careful tonight” and she pulled off.  Needless to say that when I told my family they responded with “y’all are crazy!”

     Another thing is that none of my co workers play because they think is too childish, but they play #candycrush, #farmheros and #bubblewitch.๐Ÿ˜ฒ My job is full of “small minded” people that are to old to be thinking like they do๐Ÿ˜’. That’s all imma say about them.  But they don’t play so any rare #pokemon are all mine๐Ÿ˜†

Also I finally got a egg. And now I realize why people are in shape. Just for the egg to hatch I have to do a 5k. But that’s a good thing. I’m really enjoying the game so far,  and I just read that they are coming out with a “wearable” stop that people can play without a screen๐Ÿ˜€ and they are gonna add a patch to do a “buddy” system.  So now #pokemon players will be able to have online friends and trade items.๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It’s soooo….. shiny

What’s going on everybody? It’s D2dalo again. And this time I wanna share my thoughts with you guys about my new favorite toy of the month and mabey even for the rest of the year. Im talking about my #Samsung # GalaxyNote7

thHVB83Y8O

 

Now this isnt a review about the phone, because if you want a review then just go to #youtube and watch the million reviews on it. No this is more of  me telling you guys what are my favorite things about the phone. Afterall I’ve had it for over 72 hours and I pretty much know it inside and out, and that makes me kind of a professional….right?

The Color 

Now when my wife and I went to the store to pick out our phones I was originally gonna get the black one. After all black is one of my favorite colors, and most of my other electronics are black. My wife was presistent about getting the Coral blue, and when she told me for the 5th or 6th time I thought to myself….(why dont you step outside the lines and try something new also) And that led me to pick out the silver one. And when I pulled it out of the box it was sooo…shiney! With no fingerprints or anything on it, it was the perfect phone for about 5 seconds until I touched it and saw fingerprints on it.

The S pen

Mannnn the S pen just might be my most favorite part about the phone. With the S-Pen I can create GIF’s, Translate any foreign word into english form, scroll up and down the screen, and preview any pics without clicking on them. Also I can write on the screen, which means, I can edit/draw on any pic, write quick notes without turning on the phone, use scroll txt more accurately and look cool while doing it. (That last part was a given) 

You know you’re addicted to your s-pen  when you pull it out to write on an actual sheet of paper๐Ÿ˜‚

The Irises Scanner

The irises scanner is the futureristic part of the phone…in my opinion. First of all your irises are your eyes. Therefore if you set it up the #note7 can scan your eyes to unlock your phone. This is amazing when it comes to security because nobody has your eyes, therefore nobody else can unlock your phone. One of the best security devices ever. Now the phone can still be locked with a password, a drawing pattern, and even a fingerprint scanner, but why would you do any of that when all you got to do is look at it and it unlocks. who I ask you who?? Senerio: Lets say its cold outside and you and your best friend are texting your spouse. They have an iphone6 and you have the note7, and you both have on gloves. Then both of yalls phones recieve a text. So you pull out the note7, look at it and it unlocks. Meanwhile they are beside you trying to unlock their phone with a password but with gloves on the phone isnt responding. so they have to take a glove off, unlock it and then resopond. And by now you’ve sent a txt without loosing any warmth from your body.

The Secure Folder

The secure folder is like a second firewall to protect all your valueable info. Because the secure folder is a folder that can only be opened up by using the irises scanner. So that eans you can put anything in the folder and you will be the only one to see it. Example: lets ay you went out to the club with your friends and you were looking good so naturally you were taking selfies but you didnt want anyone else to see them. All you would have to do is move all the “secret” pics to the secure folder and no one would be able to see them. And then just to add a third firewall of security you can litteraly hide the secure folder so it disappears off the screen. That…….is……awesome!!!!!

The Glass body

Unfortiunately no phone is perfect. The #note7 has a body thats completely made of glass. So that means that its super slippery. Especially if you have sweaty hands. So that means that you will NEED a protective case. And these things arn’t cheap. I went with the #Bodyguardz case because it was clear, that way the color wouldn’t covered up on my phone, and it wasn’t to bulky so I could put it in my pocket with no problem. It was only $40.00 so no big deal there.

My Conclusion

My conclusion is that I give this phone 9 1/2 out of 10 stars and thats only beacuse it seems like #samsung made it outta glass because they know that you would need to buy a case or drop it and crack it. And the phone isn’t cheap. And those arn’t all the special features that the phone can do, those are just some of my favorites. Others would include a brilliant beautiful HD screen, a juicy  3500 mAh battery, dual screen ability, crystal clear speakers, a selfie camera that makes anything look great, and so on and so forth.  But like I said if you absolutely wanna see EVERYTHING that the phone can do just jump on #youtube and see for your self.
