Fun For the Entire Family!

Video games are fun. Most of us have played some kind of video game at some point in our lives. Younger generations and kids are much more familiar with this kind of entertainment which doesn’t mean that some of the parents aren’t interested as well. If your family like this and you like to play then there’s good news for you. A brand new video game console from Nintendo called Nintendo Switch is coming soon and it’s fun for the entire family!

Support for new and old games

Moms and dads who grew up playing super Nintendo games like Mario Kart will soon be able to relive those experiences. This console will be able of playing previous generations of video games as well as new ones! This is very handy to have if you have a clash of opinions when it comes to retro versus modern video games. Instead of buying a separate gaming console for every member of your family you can all take turns and enjoy numerous generations of Nintendo’s games on Switch.

Multiplayer ready

Speaking of taking terms, you don’t actually have to do that. Switch comes equipped with two controllers so you may play with your partner or your child. There are no additional costs included for this, everybody is getting it! If it happens that you and your kid like the same kind of video game, you may team up and work together to complete it.

Safe for children

With Nintendo Switch you won’t need to worry whether or not your kids are spending too much time on video games when you’re not around. It will allow you to directly set the time limit and control how much your children can spend playing video games. You may also control which games they are allowed to play and which ones should be off-limits so you don’t ever have to worry about your children seeing something inappropriate in a video game that you don’t want them to see.

This is all possible because of the extended parental control application. This application can be downloaded to your smart phone. From there you’ll be able to see what your child is playing and for how long. You’ll be able to track if your children have respected the time limits you’ve set for them or not.

Switch truly sounds like a great way to have fun but wait, there’s more.

Switch won’t be your classic home console, no. It is actually portable console with its own display. You can choose to stream your game on your living room TV or take the switch itself outdoor and played there. The two separate controllers we mentioned earlier can be attached to the sides of the screen providing you with twin sticks two sets of buttons just like a regular video game controller!

Now if that’s not cool enough for you perhaps the speculated price of $299 might pique your curiosity.

Nintendo switch is said to be releasing on 3rd of March this year worldwidef so if you think that this is something for you, you won’t need to wait for that long to get one!

What is Chrono Diet?

The Chrono Diet. During the past year you’ve undoubtedly heard about it. It’s been all over the television, newspaper and magazines, especially those that write about health and fitness. Internet has also been flooded with all kinds of talk about this incredible diet. Perhaps you’ve even tried a yourself unknowingly or perhaps you’ve been following the program for some time? In any case, Chrono Diet is great and it proved itself efficient times and times again. But what exactly is this miraculous Chrono Diet.

 

French Doctor Alain Delabos was studying chrono biology before he used his knowledge and put it into the making of this specific food program. Unlike other diets, Chrono Diet does not restrict you from eating any specific foodstuff, no. What it does is that it guides you about

  • what you should eat;
  • how much of it should you take;
  • and exactly when you should consume it.

 

So instead of listing forbidden foodstuff this diet takes an approach that there’s time (and quantity ) for every type of meal.

Other than those basics there are some other guidelines that complement this strangely efficient diet.

For example:

According to Chrono Diet, the taller you are the more will be allowed to eat. In other words the quantity of food you should consume is solely dependent on your body height. So for instance if your height is 174 cm (equivalent to5.7 ft), the amounts food you’re allowed to consume is directly governed by those 174 cm.

But that’s not everything. Chrono Diet incorporates provide variety of these “rule sets” such as:

  • if you have big bones you shouldn’t worry about losing too much weight. You can tell the size of your bones by measuring your wrists (6 cm wrists are considered to be average);
  • completely avoid alcohol. According to Chrono, the alcohol is the worst thing you can consume if you’re trying to lose some weight;
  • if you have a sweet tooth restrict yourself from eating sweets during the day. Try to consume sugar exclusively late in the afternoon but only if you feel hungry;
  • do not put sugar in your milk or coffee;
  • milk and yogurt should also be avoided unless it’s breakfast. It is best to try and completely avoid consuming these in larger quantities but, having some as an addition to your meal is fine;
  • if you’re training or exercising at the gym, try eating a banana one hour before every training session;
  • and of course the most important rule is never to eat unless you’re actually hungry;

 

These may seem restrictive at first but wait, Chrono Diet allows for 2 cheat meals per week.

This means that twice per week you may choose to ignore every rule from the book. For example, even though the diet strictly says that you should avoid alcohol, this can be easily looked over twice per week! Or whatever you feel like having some candy you may do so if you haven’t “used” your two portions of cheat meals already. It’s kinda like playing a game with yourself if you think about it.

 

It may sound very weird and it’s probably because it is. The entire idea is based on facts that the body works differently throughout certain periods of the day and will react differently to different foods depending on when and how many of it consume.

 

Also, there are multiple programs like the Everyday Way of Eating that will help you lose from 2 to 3 kg per month as long as you are following the rules. Or perhaps you’re looking for a more rapid way to lose weight? In that case Starter Diet, which allows loss of 4 to up to 8 kg in 4 weeks might be what you’re looking for.

Oh, and did we say it is also a great way to gain weight?

Apparently Chrono is not just about losing weight but it can also help people put on some extra kilos the same way as if they were trying to lose them. Once again, the idea is to bring you to your ideal body weight that is governed by your height.

 

All in all, there’s something for everything in Chrono Diet and we encourage you to try it out yourself!

If anything, you can only get healthier in the process and that’s a promise!

Valentine’s Day Gift Aid For Him And Her

The holidays have passed. We can’t help but smile when we think about all the good times we had. There is certainly a little bit of sadness that comes with this however, it is also a relief in a way.

It is no secret that we spend a lot of money during holiday times. Once those times are behind us we can finally start saving again. Right? Well some of you might be able to do that but most of us are going to have to wait just for a little longer. You wonder why? Did you forget about Valentine’s Day?

That’s right. It is probably the most overlooked “holiday“. We call it holiday because it has that certain kind of energy like the rest of the holidays even though it’s not. People are happy and enthusiastic about it. Some of us cherish the fact that we have somebody special to spend this day with. Others perhaps cherish quite the opposite, the fact that they are alone and that they can do whatever they want and worry only about getting a gift for themselves.

Both of these situations are beneficial and they are equally good depending on how you look at them. For now, let’s focus in those that are in fact in love and have someone to spend this special day with and see what romantic gifts they can surprise their significant others with.

 

Let us start with guys because, let’s be honest here ladies, it is incomparably easier to please us than it is to please you. Am I not right?

All jokes aside though, surprising a guy and gifting him what he wants is rather easy. For instance if some of you ladies were to buy your man a 12 months of PlayStation Plus membership, no matter what age group you two belong to, do not doubt for a second that he will enjoy and cherish every moment of that subscription!

Well the first one is guaranteed to work in 99% of situations, in case your man is somehow immune to joys of video gaming, some of all-time classics like these can always help you out:

  • a pack of his favorite beer with a personalized bottle opener key chain
  • a fancy new toolbox for him to store all of his “toys”
  • a new quality wallet to replace the old one that’s been long overdue
  • a Swiss Army knife, because no man can resist that perfection
  • a new watch or a tie to pair with his favorite suit

 

If none of these sound appealing to you remember that you can always just spend time with him and do something together that you both enjoy doing.

 

As for my fellow men, if you’re trying to please your lady and surprise her with something rather unique that I might have some fresh ideas for you. This is what I’m aiming for as this year’s Valentine’s Day gift for my girl and I thought I’d share it with all of you.

cool ring for your girl

 

These are called called “secret wood rings” and have been very popular around the Internet recently. It’s very easy to see why. These rings are simply mesmerizing and I believe they can make a wonderful gift for younger women. From what I understand these can easily be stringed and worn as a necklace. There are many varieties to choose from and according to the author there are no two rings that are identical since all of them are handmade and therefore unique.

 

If you don’t think that she would like this kind of ring then perhaps you can go for a more classic piece of jewelry?

 

Other things that come to my mind are perfumes. Actually, anything that has to do with smelling good. Whether it’s a perfume, candle, soap or an aromatic bath salts, as long as you know her taste even for the slightest, I bet you can go wrong with something that smells good!

 

Also, everyone appreciate creativity. As long as you can make something unique that will remind her how sweet and caring you are, you’re good to go. Some things that come to my mind are:

  • personalized and stylized picture frames and photo albums
  • a whole lot of different and easy to DIY romantic lamps
  • if you’re talented you can write her a song or try painting her a picture

 

Preparing a moody romantic atmosphere spiced up with a little bit of her favorite food and wine will definitely work. It is very important that you prepare yourself and show her that you care. The worst mistake you can make here is to order a pre-prepared meal that someone else made for you. This way it is not personal and barely shows any affection. In situations like these it is better to take your girl out.

 

Taking her out is always an option. You just need to find out if there’s a concert nearby that she would like or perhaps some restaurant serving her favorite food and wine? Whatever you do just don’t overdo it. We all know that men like to brag and prove themselves but the truth is, most of the women like modest men. So don’t overdo it and act in proportion with your abilities.

5 Things You Should Know If You’re Thinking About Getting No Man’s Sky

Everyone has heard about and it and everyone is either excited or disappointed for this game for one reason or another, there are after all entire galaxies of reasons and possibilities to be excited about so if not for one thing, then definitely for one of so many others. Without further ado, let’s take a look at some important things that you should be aware of when it comes to No Mans Sky.

 

It’s a Multiplayer but not really an MMO game

 

What this means is that the game will utilize a kind of a “mega server”. All players will simultaneously be online and active but the game won’t actually send you information about what all of the other players are doing for it would not be necessary to know what a player in a different galaxy is doing, and this is different than how MMORPG games handle this but then again, the “world” of No Man’s Sky is not actually your everyday MMO world. While you can meet other people, it’s highly unlikely that this will happen often but that’s kind of the whole point of a game this size.

 

The game will focus mainly on Exploration and Survival

 

Gigantic game like this naturally will focus mainly on exploring the fractions of the game’s universe and surviving whatever may come your way. Now, this won’t be your typical survival game but will have a fair share of survival elements. For example, some planets may be inhibited by hostile creatures that will try to harm you or you might be attacked by raiders while flying your space ship, but other than that, game will put the strongest not on exploration and space travel from planet to planet or galaxy to galaxy. It will mostly depend on the role you wish to play and the type of ship you choose to pilot. Speaking of ships…

Multiple types of space ships

 

Four confirmed “classes” so far. No doubt that these will greatly impact you playstyle from the earliest points of the game. The classes are: Explorer, Trader, Fighter and Scientist. Ships are all different depending on the role you want to fulfill so for example, Explorers will be the fastest while fighters will naturally offer battle combat versatility and control. They can all be customize and improved and will require fuel that is obtainable/craftable in a number of ways.

 

Gameplay out of ship

 

Not all of the time will be spent in a cockpit and in No Man’s Sky there are many different things to do while exploring a planet. You may come across NPC races that you can quest for but in order to do so you will need to understand them first, so a little bit of time and exploration is needed in order to do that because, that’s how learning a new language actually works. There’s a sort of a reputation system that will come into play when dealing with one of many games factions and it can be either positive or negative and depending on the alignment with the faction can either work in your favor or make things really hard for you.

 

The World

 

The world will feature a ridiculous number of planets, if we got the numbers correctly, it’s going to be  18 billion times 18 billion explorable planets. Now, obviously that’s a big number and it would be insane to think that these are all man made, because they are not. The entire universe of No Man’s Sky is using an algorithm to procedurally generate the content as players are exploring it. They are basically seeds (Minecraft players may be familiar with these) which are a set of numbers that are telling the computer how to make the world. Also, if you’re planning on exploring everything this game has to offer, stop right there. Human lives are not long enough to accomplish such a feat so you might as well just give up now.

 

Those are some of the things that we think everyone should know before departing for No Man’s Sky, we hope it cleared some things up. Check back recently as we are bound to have more articles covering this upcoming game as well as every other title worth the mention. Until then…
