Firstly, we need to thank Spin Master for providing us with some free and amazing game titles to add to our growing collection we are using to gameschool with. We will likely get into more of how we ended up here in another post, but to give you all a brief rundown, we have decided to homeschool our daughter. There was no one reason why, but multiple such as bullying, physical and mental health issues that went hand-in-hand and it was taking its toll on all of the family. After a whole lot of research, we felt this was the only way to go for us. Don’t get me wrong, neither of us are saying it’s better for you, nor that going to school is better, just that this is what is working for our situation. Read More

Sherri, myself and even Cadence, (of course with no caffeine for Cadence) enjoy a warm and relaxing cup of tea done right. Did you know that in order to get the proper taste and enjoyment out of your favorite cup of tea, you need to have it brewed for the right amount of time and temperature? I can honestly say that I didn’t completely understand that until it was proven to me. I guess, if you think about coffee for a second, burnt coffee taste disgusting right? Well, it’s very much the same idea in my opinion, for tea, after you brew it right you just know.Read More

So you read a title like that and I suspect you get all up in arms about your 4K display. Easy, calm down folks, sorry but it’s true. If you want your gaming experience to be better than just good, sound is the most important tool you have access to. Let me explain using a few of the current games everyone is playing right now. You are online playing a match of Fortnite, COD’s Blackout, Red Dead Redemption 2 and you can see an enemy has spotted you in the distance. You’re behind cover and feeling pretty safe, right? Nope, you’re poor quality sound has let someone from behind you get close enough to end you and let’s hope it’s not an embarrassing up close and personal take out. We have all been there at one time or another, but we can disrupt the norm and at the absolute least decrease the amount of times it happens. Turtle Beach has been in my life for as long as online gaming has been a thing. They have so many levels of gaming audio that you can go simple, or turn heads. When I realized my long-time used Turtle Beach model was starting to have some wear, it only made sense to look what was current. This is where the Elite Pro 2 Headset + SuperAmp for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Windows 10 computers comes into play. Read More

When given the opportunity to rewrite history, or um take advantage of reviewing a title from the Series Assassin’s Creed, you can be sure I was in full agreement. Since the rumor mill started of its development I again dreamed of synchronizing atop ultimate heights with views that could surely only get better with time passed. We all know some great things come out of Canada and this title comes from Ubisoft Quebec! Relax, check out the release trailer below, and read through our review of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to see what adventure it holds, or could hold for you. Note that this game is rated M, for Mature and although I reviewed the title on an Xbox One X, it’s available on Xbox, PS4 and on Microsoft Computers.Read More
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has been recently released by Activision and Treyarch and we were given the opportunity to test drive. The title is available on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and PC as of October 12. Given the fact that I am a strong campaign player and have usually completely run through it before launching multiplayer, this title having no campaign mode made me a little edgy at first. Then I put some time in… Read More
When someone mentions laser tag, memories come flashing back to what I remembered it to be. Heavy, (hockey-like) chest protector style sensor vests that made you feel like you gained twenty-five pounds when it was placed over your head. There was a thick and very stiff cable that ran from the corner of the vest to the laser gun providing it power. Now that I’ve painted that picture for you, I can tell you the Nerf Laser Ops is a game changer. When given the opportunity to try the new Nerf Laser Ops from Hasbro, you can be sure we were going to jump at the possibility to do so!Read More

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to test the Bose® noise masking sleepbuds™, and couldn’t pass-up the opportunity to work with a brand that has set so many benchmarks. That and the thought of finally recovering from the bruised ribs, well, that was reasoning in itself to accept, let me explain. It’s no question that sleep is important to both a persons mental and physical well-being. That being said, I have to own up to the fact that there are nights that I snore so loudly, I sometimes even wake myself up. If I don’t wake up on my own behalf, my wife lovingly slams an elbow into my ribs and gives me a, “TURN OVER”! It’s not fair that she be kept awake by my noise, amongst all of the other nightly sounds from the street outside.Read More
