Every RPG Ever: Must Have Flowchart

I don't have time to play games (video games, not mind games) anymore, but here is a cool flow chart (who doesn't love flowcharts?) that can take the place of actually playing games. I don't know just how satisfying it can be, but hey, if you don't have the time, then you just have to suck it up. Via Gameinformer

Facebook Games

People say it's amazing just how popular Facebook has become. I think it's more amazing the so many people are into games now because of this social networking platform. People who never even took a second look at games before are now addicted! Mafia Wars, Restaurant City, Farmville, Cafe World - name it and Facebook will have a game to get you hooked. Cafe World is what's keeping me busy in this realm these days. I just love how you can make various dishes and design your cafe. From walls to tile flooring to tables and chairs - you can play around and create your dream cafe. Of course, having to set your alarm so that you'll wake up in the middle of the night to serve your food to keep it from spoiling is just another of the game's charm. Gotta love it! What's our favorite Facebook game?

The "Craft" of Gambling

I grew up in a family where gambling is a big no no. I was not even allowed to play with cards most of the time. Now that I am older, I see the value in what my parents were saying. However, I also have come to realize that it is not all that bad. I have since then learned how to play various games such as poker (I love Texas Hold 'Em) and blackjack. Today, these games have found another venue - the Internet. There are so many options available to those who are interested in card games and one of them is the Online Casino . To tell you the truth, I have not had the experience of playing in a real casino (I have set foot in one, though!) but I see the convenience and ease in online casinos. There are so many online casinos, though, and if you do not have ample and accurate information, you might miss out on the really good ones. Gamble Craft is one web site that provides this kind of information. You can read reviews of various online casinos and base your decision on thos

When the Glitter Calls You

I used to NOT understand why people went to Casinos . I didn't get what made them want to visit cities such as Las Vegas because of gambling. I still probably do not get the whole idea as I have very limited casino and gambling experience. However, I think my horizons have widened considerably. Though I may not experience the same degree of thrill that some people do, I still have a better understanding of the experience. Last month, my in-laws spent several days in Vegas. They have been there many times before so they knew their way around. I was thinking, though, that if I were to pay that vibrant city a visit, I would be lost. Seeing as I have never been there before, that is to be expected. Add to that the excitement that I would probably feel and you can just imagine how lost I would be. Fortunately for people like me, there are a lot of resources online. One such resource is Casinos R-US. They specialize in providing casino tours so for example, if I were to go to

Why Are Video Games So Addictive?

Sometimes I think that I have an addictive personality (not sure about the term). What I mean by this is that when I get to like something, I tend to depend on it a lot. Take writing. I think I am addicted to it. My jobs. I can't sit still for long without working. Then there are video games. Once I start playing, I find it hard to stop for sometime. We already have a PSP and a PS3 and we also play PC games. Yet sometimes, I still find myself wanting to try other consoles. Maybe a Wii for Christmas? Or how about an xbox 360 ? I am sure that as great as the PS3 is, these other consoles have other unique things to offer - and to get addicted to. Oooh, did I mention that there is this new mini laptop that has caught my attention? (More about that in the near future.)

My Aching Feet...

We had a great time with the boys this afternoon. We met Silas, Sam, and Gio at SM North for some quality time with them. First we ate - we couldn't decide where to eat so we asked Silas to pick. It was funny watching him try to decide. He just stared at the various restaurants line up side by side for a few minutes and then turned to us and said "I don't know." So we ended up at Mexicali. I was not able to take pictures as the kids were a handful! Sam wanted everyone's food and kept staring and grabbing. Silas and Gio kept burning themselves on the sizzling plate. I think they had fun though. After eating, we headed over to World of Fun - I didn't realize that SM doesn't have a Timezone. Of course, we had to stop by the wash room - Sam ate too much I guess and did a number 2. Thank God for Gemalyn as I wouldn't have been able to change Sam's nappies! Anyhow, we managed to have some fun at WOF even though the games were very limited and i

Of Grumpy Partners

Warning: For wives (or girlfriends) only!!! My husband seems to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. I don't understand how that can happen because our futon is pushed up against the wall so he ALWAYS gets up from the same side of the bed... (poor attempt at humor, his grumpiness is getting to me) Anyhow, as I sit here watching him play GTA IV and getting grumpier by the minute, I find myself catching his grumpy spirit. I have raised my voice to the kids several times - go take a shower, make sure your hair's dry, what do you want for lunch?, come out and answer me or else you will not get any food... Is it just me or do you get affected by your partner's moods as well? (Dang, the cops are getting him - even GTA IV is not helping his mood right now!)

DHL Frustration

When Jerry wants something, he has to get it. Take GTA IV for example. Ever since word got out that it was going to be released this April, he was hell bent on getting it on the night it was going to be released. Of course he did - he reserved it 6 months in advance and had Dad and Karen get it the night they released it. I was a bit irked at first, but only because it cost us $200 - for the game and shipping combined. But oh well, it's GTA IV. Now we're frustrated. Dad shipped it through DHL Wednesday night. It should be here by now - that's why people pay big bucks to use DHL, right? Well, take a look at this: It's been like that since 2.56 this morning. What are they doing? There is nothing illegal in that box - a DVD game, toothpaste, and soap! The frustration is getting to me!!!
