I was lucky enough to visit the newly opened Molly’s Arena. A Japanese-style arcade where you can sit down and have ramen and Mochi ice cream while playing the most epic arcade games. And even better, fly loops in an air plane in VR. So if you need some more convincing to drop by this Arcade, let me tell you about why you need to go there ASAP.
Looking for interesting baby names from The Witcher? We’ve got your back. Ivey and Perzian sat down and went through the entire character list of one of the most talked about book, games and Netflix series called The Witcher. In part one of this series we made a list with my favourite baby names from Skyrim. If you haven’t read it first, make sure to check it out!
It’s almost januari 1st, and for most of us that means we are already reviewing the past year and setting goals for the next. For many people, losing weight or getting more active is a returning favourite on the goal-list. And what better way to focus on reaching your goals than getting a new fitness tracker or smartwatch ^^.
Being a gamer and a gadget freak, I’m always trying to keep myself up to date on the latest geeky gadgets. I first got into the smartwatches when the original Pebble got released. When the follow up, Pebble 2 got released, I immediately backed it on Kickstarter. Unfortunately, Pebble got bought by Fitbit. I was angry for a while, because one of my reasons to back Pebble was that all of their software was open-source, so that anyone could make apps for the watch. This resulted in quite a few really cool apps and games. Also, when Fitbit bought Pebble, they announced that they wouldn’t continue the line so that meant no replacements or repairs in the future. So after my Pebble 2 broke down, it was time for me to again dive into the world of smartwatches.
Hi! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Erika aka Fruitdr0p, I’m 27 years old and live in the northern part of Sweden with my fiancé! I work fulltime with drillcores on ALS Scandinavia. In my spare time I really love to travel, go fishing, watch series and driving a snowmobile. When I was about 8-9 years old I got into games and my best friend just got Diablo II so we played it for so many months then we played a lot of Heroes III. It was like the best time of my life!
Let’s face it, we don’t have enough time to game. When we grow up to be responsible (ahem) adults, life gets in the way. We have to go to work, commute, clean our houses, water our plants (unless you’ve read this article and bought gamer-friendly plants), prepare food (or go out for dinner), interact with our partners, take care of our furry friends, hug our kids… You get the picture. When you are a teenager or a student, you don’t have as many responsibilities and there is a LOT more time to game. Also, for some reason, when you are a teenager or an adolescent, you apparently don’t need as much sleep. Gaming ‘till 01.00 am was totally fine a few years ago, even when I had to get up at 7.00am to go to work. Now,I stay up ‘late’ when I make it past my bedtime of 22.30pm … and the repercussions are harsh.
Plants help turn any living space into a real home. They look nice in pretty much any room of the house. Plus, indoor plants can help purify the air in your house, create oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide.
But some gamers, like us, struggle with keeping indoor plants alive. Are you an infamous plant killer, in dire need of easy tips and tricks to keep your green housemates alive? Then you are in luck! We have done all the research. So sit back and take a look at all the ‘Gamer Friendly House Plants’ we found.
When Guildwars 2 got released in august 2012, I was immediately hooked. I first heard about it through Felicia Day’s facebook page, which I still follow (If you, by any chance, haven’t seen her youtube series ‘the Guild’, go watch it right now, it’s awesome). Somehow I got myself a beta key and couldn’t wait to start playing. It was amazing. Great art, great story, lots of fun. I vividly remember killing a giant dragon as part of my introduction to the game and I still get warm and fuzzy feelings when I play that part of the game. Maybe because I’ve played it as beta first, it feels extra special to me.
Some people collect stamps and I love everything about researching and finding unique and unusual baby names. Hey don’t judge… Lucky for you I’m willing to share my research! In this Best baby names series I will look into different names from games, geeky series, comics or movies.
The days are getting shorter and colder. The leaves are changing colour and saying goodbye to the branches they were attached to. And yes, Starbucks is selling their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. I for one love this time of the year. Not just because of the changes in scenery and the seasonal Starbucks coffee specials. No. I love this time of the year especially because of Halloween. A holiday filled with haunted houses, costume parties and a whole lot of candy. Who doesn’t love these things? Seriously!?
The Halloween vibe..
Kicking ass in an awesome first person shooter. Sounds pretty sweet right? Unfortunately this will probably never be me. Why? Because first person shooters (FPS) nauseate me. Almost every game with a first person view does, for that matter. Can I do something about it? Well, I have tried… obviously. Let me tell you about my attempts to fight gaming sickness. Spoiler-alert: They were not always that successful…
