The Walking Dead: Episode 1 “A New Day” Review [Xbox 360/PC]

I’ll admit it, when I first heard Telltale Games was taking the first shot at making The Walking Dead game, as a fan, I was worried. I felt the game needed to be an adventure game, not just a point and click, like Telltale is known for. I’m happy to say that all my fears were put to rest when I finally got my Read more →

My Childhood Returns

Growing up, some of my fondest gaming memories were playing PC games, specifically Sierra’s point and click adventures; Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. I still remember for Christmas at 7 years old, receiving my first game, Kings Quest IV on PC.

Since the start of the Kickstarter craze, most of those games have been popping up left and right. First the remake of Leisure Suit Larry, then Wasteland 2, Tex Murphy and now I just caught wind of the Space Quest creators getting back together for a new Spaceventure. With my frustration for console games, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. The big question is, can they live up to the expectations of their long time fans and at the same time draw in this new generation of ‘entitled’ gamers? Only time will tell.

Butterfly Magic

One thing I find myself doing quite a bit when taking photos is chasing butterflies. They seem to be a bit camera shy, so I rarely find myself capturing a decent shot, at least until my trip to California Adventure this past weekend.

The Kickstarter Craze

I first heard of Kickstarter when one of my YouTube favorites, Freddie Wong started up a project to fund a webseries called Video Game High School, I had no clue what Kickstarter was, so I decided not to participate. It again popped up recently when Double Fine’s mastermind Tim Schafer decided to reach out to their fans to help create their next game. Once I heard about this, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. So I popped my Kickstarter cherry and backed Double Fine, not knowing this would lead to Read more →

My 3 Day Juice Fast

01 Feb
February 1, 2012

First off, let me get this out of the way: I’m not a doctor, nor am I an expert on juicing. I don’t know your medical history, so what worked for me may or may not work for you. I’m only here to share what I’ve tried and what worked for me.

If you’re just looking for recipes and step by step instructions, skip to the bottom.

If you need proof or motivation that juice fasting works, I suggest you watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead if you have Netflix. It’s available on instant streaming. This movie was what motivated me to do a juice fast. I originally had planned to do a 10 day fast, but quickly changed it to 3 after I realized how difficult it was. I do plan on going for 10 days eventually, just not at this time.I’ve juiced before, but only as an addition to my meals; I’d never tried juice alone. First thing I’d like to point out: This fast is extremely difficult and requires a lot of will-power. The first 2 days of the fast, you’ll crave coffee, food, snacks, alcohol — whatever your vice may be. I don’t know if crave is even strong enough of a word for the feelings I felt. I wanted nothing more than to eat something, anything. I even had dreams of food. Be assured that I’m not trying to scare you away from this fast by any means, because the end results are well worth it.
