    Mass Effect: Paragon Lost Review

    In Mass Effect 3, Shepard doesn’t have to bond with the shipmates of the Normandy as is pretty much required in Mass Effect 2 with the game’s team-bonding missions. However, if the player in Mass Effect 3 chooses to chat with marine James Vega, Vega entreats Shepard to “dance” with him–a sparring match where Vega spills exactly why he is angry with Shepard, the Reapers, and the Collectors. It’s isn’t because his new tattoo is a wee bit sore. Vega was assigned to protect a certain colony in the Terminus systems, a colony that was unfortunately on the Collectors’ shopping list. Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is Vega’s story. The anime starts off simple enough.

    Give the gift of laughter with PrankPacks

    Who says you can’t give the gift of laughter while you are gift giving? I think the PrankPack by 30 Watt is a cute way to prank your friends and loved ones over the holidays. 30 Watt has created a new line of PrankPacks, which are empty gift boxes. When the recipient unwraps the gift and reads what the product is (such as extreme chores for a gaming system), it creates that perfect moment of confusion and awkwardness that is sure to have at least you rolling. When the gift receiver opens the package they will see a yellow flap that says “Prank You!”, and realize that their real gift is inside. “The 30 Watt R&D Labs, worked on gift bag and gift wrap innovation for many years, and the countless hours and millions of dollars have paid off, with the development of the Prank Pack—a genuine fake, prank gift

    The press release came in today to announce that Peter Jackson or Warner Bros will be squeezing the Hobbit for all it’s worth by making it a trilogy. Yes the latest Hollywood fad has hit the Hobbit. Jackson stated, “Upon recently viewing a cut of the first film, and a chunk of the second, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I were very pleased with the way the story was coming together. We recognized that the richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, gave rise to a simple question: do we tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as filmmakers and fans was an unreserved ‘yes.’ We know the strength of our cast and of the characters they have brought to life. We know creatively how compelling and engaging the
