Most Anticipated: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

This is going to be a new series on my blog of things that I am anticipating most. This could be products, movies, books and pretty much anything else that is coming out. First up, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. 

Uncharted 4 is the much anticipated Playstation 4 follow up to the Uncharted Series on Playstation 3. It appears that it will be faster, bigger and better than the greatness that was the first three games in this series. Using all the power of the PS4 to make it even more fun. This of course is based only on trailers and gameplay videos (doubt me, check out the video below), so only time will truly tell if they manage to fulfill the promise that they seem to be offering!

So why should you play this game, or the first three, if you haven't already played those? In short, this is a modern day Indiana Jones game in a sleek, fun and well made video game. The originals push the PS3 to it’s limits when it comes to graphics and the gameplay is well done and easy to pick up. The story is just simply fantastic. You feel like you are Indiana Jones Nathan Drake as you puzzle and fight through, jungles, deserts and ancient cities. And as beautiful as the three PS3 versions are, the upcoming PS4 release looks even better!

This is why it is one of (Star Wars Battlefront anyone?) my most anticipated games of the year without a doubt. You can pre-order the upcoming games or catch up on the original trilogy with the links below. I will say, if you have a PS4 and haven't played Uncharted at all, I would wait for the remastered version that is coming soon, if you only have a PS3, the games are easily some of the best for the playstation 3!

Uncharted 1 & 2: Greatest Hits Dual Pack (Playstation 3)
Uncharted 3: Drakes Fortune (Playstation 3)

What is your most anticipated upcoming video game release?

Funko Pop! Review: S.H.I.E.L.D - Agent Coulson

I have a confession to make... I absolutely love Funko's Pop collection! I really want to buy them all and especially the Marvel series. Because of these feelings I have decided that I am going to begin reviewing them as an excuse to buy as many of them as I can.


I'm going to start with the one that brought me into my current fascination with them, S.H.I.E.L.D - Agent Coulson.

Anyone who has watched The Avengers or Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D knows how awesome Agent Coulson is and his Pop bobblehead is no different. From his cool shades to his S.H.I.E.L.D suite, with name badge and tie of course, it's just a really neat little toy!

If you want buy Agent Coulson, feel free to use my Amazon Affiliates Link.

What toy collection have you found yourself unable to avoid buying?

Review: Gillette Fusion Proglide With Flexball

A few weeks ago Gillette decided to send me their new Fusion Proglide Razor with Flexball. As a long time user of Gillette razors I expected it to be a really good razor, as all the Gillette razors I've ever used have been. I did, however, have many doubts how much of a difference the flexball would actually make to my morning shave. I was pleasantly surprised. 

There is only so much you can say about how a razor feels while shaving. And this razor like the normal Proglide before it feels great while shaving. I'm pretty sure if the shave was any closer, I'd probably hurt myself while using it. So the important question is whether or not the Flexball "technology" makes the shave any better... I felt that it did, while I don't think that it made the shave itself any closer, I did feel that it was more nicer to use especially when going over certain curves of the chin and cheekbones with that little bit of flex actually making it more comfortable. I also feel that the number of ingrown hairs I got went down a lot while using this, but I'm not sure if that was from the razor or a recent change in shaving cream... I probably will never know. 

My conclusion is this, will this razor change the world, no, but it is a solid upgrade to the already great Gillette Fusion Proglide. It is worth buying for sure... now I just need to compare it to the razor's from Dollar Shave Club

Girl on Fire

The Pioneer senior hockey player can skate, pass and shoot as one of her team’s top players. The speed of the game supersedes all else.
It’s when she comes back to the bench that the familiar feeling returns.
