Google Plus Launches Collections... And Ends Caturday

Today Google Plus has launched Collections as you may have seen. This feature allows you to 'subscribe' to a group of posts on certain topics. If you don't see it yet.. you will shortly!

Check out My Collections:
Geek - https://plus.google.com/collection/QQdjb
Video Games - https://plus.google.com/collection/gATeb
Social Media - https://plus.google.com/collection/co20Z
Caturday - https://plus.google.com/collection/IXOqb

If people use the feature correctly, you could subscribe to their Caturday posts cause you love cats! If you HATE caturday.. you can unsubscribe from that section and never see furry friends in your stream again. Even more cool you can put posts you've already made into collections.. Which i've done here... SO check some of my collections out and subscribe/unsubcribe where you see fit.

Pinterest what? Why would anyone use Pinterest when they have this feature of fully "pinning" not only pictures, but blog posts, youtubes, notes and more..

Top 15 Finalists For the Video Game Hall Of Fame

The Strong National Museum of Play has announced its 15 finalist for induction into the World Video Game Hall Of Fame.. Those nominees are:
Angry Birds
DOOM
FIFA
The Legend of Zelda
Minecraft
The Oregon Trail
Pac-Man
Pokémon
Pong
The Sims
Sonic the Hedgehog
Space Invaders
Super Mario Bros.
Tetris
World of Warcraft

A pretty solid game list if I do say so. It was based off 4 criteria. Icon-status" (i.e., wide recognition), longevity ("more than a passing fad"), geographical reach, and overall influence (on games, entertainment, pop culture, etc.).

I think Zork is solidly missing.. but otherwise can safely say i've played each and every one of these hits.. :) What do you think of this list... anything missing?

PewDiePie Is the Most Viewed YouTuber

And he streams video games... This video is a montage of his "funny moments"... Do you subscribe? Do you enjoy his videos? ... Ironic that the most viewed thing online is... videogames? :)

Check out my Review of The Witcher 3...

The Witcher series continues in this third installment as a role-playing hack and slash video game developed by CD Projekt RED. Although this is the third in the series, you will not need to have played previous versions of the Witcher series to enjoy this game.

No Memorial Day Break for Game of Thrones

Unlike in years past, there will not be a Memorial Day break on Game of Thrones. This has been a touchy subject in the past. I'm glad that we get to have 10 straight weeks of Game of Thrones this year.

Which System Do You Game On?

Pick you poison.. There are no wrong answers but you can only pick one! :)

Other is for... all others. The box is small.. I put a few ideas of "others" but there are countless more... If you are not in the previous options.. you are.. "other". :)

To Pay or Not To Pay...

That is the question. For quite some time now video game companies are trying out new payment models to figure out the best way to stay in business and provide value.

Value recently hit the news when they started charging for Skyrim mods. What do you think about Payment for mods? What model do you like for game playing?

Communities I Manage (Stuff I Like)

Quotes I Like:

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights" ~ Maya Angelou

"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained. It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent. You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it"

Be who you are and say what you feel, cause those who mind.. don't matter.. and those who matter... don't mind... ~ Dr Seuss.

" It is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is" ~ Nicole Kidman

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible." ~ T.E. Lawrence

"Progress is not made by early risers or hard workers, but by Lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same." ~ Henry Ford

The Pyramid hotel in Vegas. Large, fun and lots of slots. But the rooms are small and likely will be part of the slanted pyramid experience. Good for a budget trip!

Large theatre righ tin the garden district. If you are coming here for an event check out the parking on Victoria st across the street. There is underground parking available which can help in the winter time.

A large airport as an alternative to New York. No wifi. Yes seriously. You can try and access it from outside the unite club lounge, but otherwise expect to pay for it.

This place is seriously in need of a decor update. The only had 1 type of beer on tap. We decided on the poutine for a quick snack. It came quick and actually the poutine was amazing. Good fresh crispy fries and fresh cheese curds and gravy.

Still allows smoking in the bar. Usually very busy and small. Patio section is nice but time to get with the no smoking program.
