You are the successor to your father in a Viking village and you must fix the problems that your father created when he went looking for treasures on the British Isles. Every action that you do and every conversation that you have will determine if you have a successful rule or not. It will also have bearing on how your subjects feel about you and your ability to be able to have others follow you as you try and save your lands from a blood thirsty chieftain who has his sights on your lands.

This is one game that you just might find yourself wondering where the time went. This is not like your usual titles where everything is in 3D but you really wont care as the story draws you in as you are conversing with your subject one moment and then fighting the next in this turned base strategy RPG based on the Vikings and Norse history and mythology.

Trolls (2016) Find your happy place

Dreamworks keeps coming up more and more great family movies, and although Trolls is not quite as immersive as Sing, it has its own charm and lots of colourful 1970s nostalgia mixed in. Anyone growing up in the era will understand many of the references the Trolls and their enemies, The Bergens come across along the way.

These trolls are not the kind one fights in Middle Earth, nor are they the kind that get loose in the basement at Hogwarts. These are very different. These are tiny, happy creatures based on toys created by the Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam in 1959. Now they are their own nation, and sadly, that tiny tribe lives in a park in the center of a Bergen town, only to be harvested for a festival every year know as Trollstice. On this day, Bergens get to indulge in a feast of happiness that comes from consuming Trolls. This particular Trollstice is the first one for the new Bergen Prince Gristle Jr.(Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but the prince will never learn how to be happy, because this is also the night that Troll King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor) gets everyone out of the captive park, and to a new home far in the forest. They live peacefully for twenty years, and soon the Troll princess, Poppy (Anna Kendrick) is learning how to be a royal for the time when she takes the throne.

Welcome to the Moon Theater, located in an humanoid animal populated version of L.A., owned now by the koala Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), and impresario that loves his job more than anything, and has dreamed of nothing but making audience happy since he was a kid. As for now, many years of questionable shows and low attendance has taken a toll on Buddy, but he does not want to give up his dream. His only two supporters are his secretary, Miss Crawly (Garth Jennings), an ancient alligator with a twitchy glass eye, and Eddie (John C. Reilly), a sheep whose family has been in the theater business for decades. Eddie’s a slacker, and lives in the family pool house.

Sniglet of the Day: March 26

Sniglet Of The DayCorntamination – Corntamination occurs when GMO crops grow near organic crops, and somehow those things non-GMO consumers thought were safe turn out to have traces of the nasty stuff in them. This is especially for those whom have allegies to GMO crop like corn or soy, or other Frankenfoods (another Sniglet for another day…). When a person allergic to GMOs get these things in their systems, they will become cranky, bloat up, and complain for days about how whomever made the dish they thought was safe tried to poison them.

Some days reading labels is just not enough, and you never know when corntamination might occur, especially in countries that have given their lives over to Monsanto and Cargill. As much as some of these allergy sufferers would love to move to a place when GMOs have been banned, the economy keeps them at home, at the whim of the corporations that are out to poison not just them, but all of us, just slowly. Even finding out that many items on the Corn-Allergens list might give one some bad reactions, and finding ways to avoid them can be done, one can still not escape corntamination, at least in North America. Good luck out there, allergy sufferers. Now that the corporations are finding new ways to dig their claws into Washington, you need to be more wary than ever.

Ridge Racer for the PSP is like taking the game on the go. I play this game at the laundromat or at doctor’s office waiting for my mom. This game has more levels and more cars than the other does.
The gameplay does runs like RR 6 & 7, but this game came out before the other two did. This game is the first game that uses NOS in the RR series. This game will get harder and harder later on in this game, but fun to play. The graphics look pretty good for a PSP game. The game good details and amazing textures in this game. It almost look RR 5 from the PS2, but more but updated. This game is called Ridge Racer, but for me I want to call it Ridge Racer 5.5 or 5v2.
