Standard Black Video Bean Bag Chair by X Rocker

Comfortable, but not perfect.

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

8 out of 10

CSN stores recently gave me the opportunity to evaluate some of their merchandise in exchange for a store credit. I chose this bean bag chair because it was affordable and seemed appropriate for playing video games and maybe even watching anime.
This chair definitely morphs to the shape of the person sitting in it, and it is very comfortable. It seems to have good back support, however after playing for a little while the back of the chair starts to lean. The beans in the chair also get pushed up into the back of the chair. This causes me to have to squeeze the beans down into the lower part again. I still think that it is worth the price, but it's not perfect. If you're a really intense gamer, then I wouldn't recommend this chair. However, if you are a light gamer, then this chair is all you need. It's definitely a good buy.

FIFA 11 is a game all about the famous and enjoyable sport, soccer. In this game there are many teams to select from and many players from real teams. This game has multiple modes to play from, such as manage mode and online mode. FIFA allows you to customize almost anything from controls to making your own character. Even making your very own personal team! I have found this game to be even more fun if you play with a friend. This way you can have games and battle it out. I found this game to be more enjoyable when playing in the Pro-clubs mode, where you and your friends join a created club with your created players and “duke” it out with other teams. The better your character does in the games, the higher his skill level gets. If you are interested in single player only, this game may get boring after a few days since it's meant mainly for multiplayer. The manager mode allows you to become the manager of a team and even win the World Cup! I find myself playing this game at least 4 times a week with my friends now.

FIFA 11 is by far the best FIFA soccer game out so far. If you don't know anything about soccer, but you want to learn something about it, then just play this game. I assure that you will learn a lot more than you think. You'll know the names of players on teams and even what positions they play. However, this game, like all games, does have its faults. If you play it for excessive amounts of time or don't have any friends online to play with you, it can get boring pretty quickly. If this game updated its players and squads more often, then this game would definitely be a lot better. The worst thing about this game would have to be the advantages that the referees call. Referees no longer call the foul right away, but instead always give the advantage. In real-life soccer, the referees never would call advantages so much.

Overall, I give this game a 9/10. However, I am a very big soccer fan and I do watch many games. If you're not a soccer fan, then I don't recommend buying this game.

Warning: this game is addictive!

Team Fortress 2 (1/4) - Basics

Developer: VALVe
Platforms: Steam (PC/Mac), Xbox 360, PS3

Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is a class and team based first person shooter (FPS). Now, when most people think of a first person shooter, they usually think of Call of Duty or Halo. TF2 is a completely new style of FPS. The main difference that people primarily notice is the artwork. I will post some snapshots of some of my own game-play in a later post if I can. Anyways, the game is completely ridiculous. It's really not a game that is meant to be taken completely seriously. Every round is just another blast of fun! Another positive is that it only costs $19.99! However, it's solely based off of online games with other people, so if your computer is slow with its connections, then it probably wouldn't be as fun for you.
Here are the basics for each game:

- 2 teams (Red and BLU)
- 9 classes
- 1 purpose (Capture the flag, Control points, Payload, etc.)

There are so many levels either created by the developers or made by the community (people just like you!). There are many servers run by separate groups that each run their own server differently. Many servers support mods that let you do things that are out of the ordinary. It really freshens up the game!

Those were just the basics of TF2. I will cover things more in-depth in my later posts. Generally, TF2 is definitely high scoring with me. See you next time! Thanks for reading!

Arakawa Under The Bridge x Bridge (2nd Season)

(8/10)Arakawa Under The Bridge x Bridge is the second season of the somewhat popular show, Arakawa Under The Bridge. If you haven't yet read my first post, click here.
Arakawa Under The Bridge x Bridge is truly a UNIQUE show. To most anime fans, this show is probably extremely strange. To most people (excluding anime fans), this show is just… just… WHAT?! It has no real overlaying storyline, unless I just terribly missed it (probably xD ). Anyways, this show is really a good way to relax. It's nonsensical characters just made me smile every time a new episode came out, and the art is pretty well done, too. It's a fairly short season, however. Just like the first season, it only has 13 episodes.
There really isn't anything else to say about this season. Once again, check out my post on the first season. It includes all of the important characters with brief descriptions. Overall, I definitely enjoyed watching this show. It deserves an 8 out of 10.
