The Popularity of Call of Duty

Posted by el swordo, 06 November 2014 - * - - - - · 503 views

Call of Duty is a super fun game to play. I enjoy playing the campaign because it is basically 5 hours of nonstop action and it isn't very challenging but, it feels like it is. But when it comes to the multiplayer I have to ask why has it become so freaking popular? For every encounter that I have that felt like it was a fair and fun fight there are 5...

When is the right time to jump into a console generation?

Posted by el swordo, 28 September 2014 - - - - - - · 735 views
I bought a ps4 on launch day because I had $250 credit at Gamestop and wanted a next gen console. I will be getting an xbone in a month. My question is how do you decide when it is time to jump into a generation? Part of my logic for getting the xbone now is because, I was planning on buying one when halo 5 came out anyway and I doubt that ms is gonna...

Rant Dentists

Posted by el swordo, 19 September 2014 - * - - - - · 472 views

Long story short I found out I need a root canal today (well found out in January but finally got around to seeing another dentist to confirm it). Well anyway the cheapest it looks like it's going to get is $1500 out of pocket. Well out of curiosity I looked up how much it would cost to visit a dentist in mexico and even after factoring in $300 for air...

Anyone Else Getting Sick of Consoles?

Posted by el swordo, 09 September 2014 - * * - - - · 839 views

Every 5 years or so new consoles come out and we upgrade. Then we either sell the old consoles for way less then we paid for them or they end up collecting dust in a closet. Not only that but the new consoles lack features that the old ones lack that don't let us completely replace them right away. On top of all this if we want to play all the games we...

Short term safe Investments?

Posted by el swordo, 07 September 2014 - * * - - - · 698 views

I know that I want an xbox one. I'm super tempted just to buy one now but, I don't really need it seeing how I have a ps4. So to stop myself from buying it I want to put $400 into some kinda safe investment that I can't really touch until halo 5 comes out. I would like to make enough to at least cover the price of tax which is 7% in Indiana. Any sugg...

PC vs Console Gaming

Posted by el swordo, 01 September 2014 - - - - - - · 843 views

Which do you prefer and why? I prefer console gaming and here are a few reasons why.

1. It's too easy for me to get sidetracked from gaming. I can start out with the intention of playing a game and get lost on reddit.
2. Controller it's not as accurate but, I prefer it. The mouse may be more accurate for fps but the keyboard is just not designed wi...

Military Worship

I went to a soccer game last week. Yes I said soccer get over it. Anyway before the game the paraded out a few soldiers and had them have a shot on goal. Of course they got a standing ovation. It seems like they do this same thing at other sporting events and the reaction is almost always the same. Now my question is why do we blindly respect anybod...

How much does smartphone battery life matter to you?

Posted by el swordo, 25 July 2014 - * * * - - · 454 views

Current smartphones if you actually use them to their max will be lucky to make it all day on a single charge. Sure I can put chargers everywhere I might possibly go but, that defeats the purpose of being mobile. Sure I could carry a battery pack around with me but, that defeats the purpose of a super thin phone. Most people put cases on their phones...

Anyone else not feel the need to upgrade their phone every 2 years?

Posted by el swordo, 08 July 2014 - - - - - - · 511 views

I'm a techie I'm obsessive over the latest technology but, I don't feel the need to get a new phone all the time? Why? Because, I use my phone mostly for listening to podcasts and looking something on twitter/facebook occassionally. So what if it's not top of the line? I'd much rather upgrade my tablet or my desktop pc which get used for extensive pe...

How Did Star Wars Get Blown So Out of Proportion?

Posted by el swordo, 07 March 2014 - * * - - - · 1070 views

So last weekend I finally decided to sit down and watch every Star Wars movie as a grown up. And while I enjoyed many parts of it, I would have to say it's vastly overrated on the whole. Out of the first trilogy I'd probably only watch the second two again. They're good popcorn B movies. But, jesus christ, Mark Hammil may be the worst actor I've ever seen...
