Frugal Gamer Presents: Captain America and the Avengers for the NES Review

cap

Due to a subscriber requesting that I review a classic NES game and the popularity of the Marvel movies I have decided to review Captain America and the Avengers!

This game is not like the 90’s quarter munching arcade game, the Super NES and Genesis versions are much more like that instead they had Data East produce this.

This game can be found on ebay ranging from $15-$85, but if you look hard you can find it at a garage scale for as low as $1.

With that said before you spend your money and time finding this game you may want to watch the review first.

The Repellant and Arrogant Statism of Global Warming Fanatics

International Liberty

I’m a firm believer in climate change. Heck, there have been several ice ages and warming periods, so it’s obvious that temperatures shift over time.

And while I’m not particularly qualified to assess such matters, I’m also willing to believe that human activity has an effect on climate.

Moreover, even though I much prefer warm weather, I’m also open to the idea that global warming might be a bad thing that requires some action.

But here’s the catch. I don’t trust radical environmentalists. Simply stated, too many of these people are nuts.

Frugal Gamer Presents: God of War 2 (From the God of War Saga) for the PS3 Review

god-of-war-ii-2-cover-wallpaper

God of War 2 is not a new game and yet people are still purchasing it today. The game is almost 8 years old and it is available in bundles of other games and you can purchase it digitally. I reviewed this game since it is almost certain we will see a new God of War game in the future for the PS4 and maybe you still have never tried a game in the series. This game was originally on the PS2 but I just never got around to trying it, I did not make that mistake with the PS3! I have all of the games in the series and I plan to review every one of them. God of War was something special and I can say with confidence that the second installment does not disappoint.

If you enjoy stories based on Greek mythology (or loosely based) this may be worth checking out. This is a brutal combat game with fast paced action, quick time events and just when the combat may be too much the game throws in mind teasing puzzles!

If you played the first God of War yet you have never played the second you should really give this game a chance.

If you still have not tried this series watch the review and it may help you to make a decision.

Nicholas Irving’s ‘The Reaper’: Sniper’s book gives readers a raw look at the realities of war

People need to see the truth.

Douglas Ernst Blog

Nicholas Irving FacebookMichael Moore’s now-infamous tweet, in which he called snipers “cowards” while moviegoers raved about Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” showed that he never read Chris Kyle’s book. Likewise, Mr. Moore’s ignorant tweet also demonstrated that he was unfamiliar with Nicholas Irving, 3rd Ranger Battalion’s deadliest sniper, with 33 confirmed kills. Mr. Irving’s autobiography, “The Reaper,” is available now, and it is certainly worth checking out for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the profession.

What separates Mr. Irving’s autobiography from others of a similar vein is that he details quite graphically just how close he came to death on multiple occasions. Many of the other first-person accounts of America’s elite war fighters never really recreate the sense of fear that can sweep over them when death closes in. The man known as “The Reaper” doesn’t shy away from acknowledging that real deal was hovering just over his head…

Dependency Does not Create Wealth and Freedom

I noticed some silly tweets last night that really tells a lot for example:

Marz1

Clearly Marz does not understand how the system works. The goal is to create a economy where everyone has the ability to create wealth so they have their own. If we depend on someone to take from one group to give to another eventually the takers will need too much and we will all go down. We need growth in economics to provide more opportunities for others to have wealth, what he and others still do not understand is that dependency is slavery. If you depend on others you will never be able to stand on your own and you cannot bite the hand that feeds you. For example I work on average of 70+ hours a week and I get more taken out in taxes so let me ask how am I not paying my fair share when someone decides they don’t want to work?

If we create a environment where everyone has opportunity we can all grow and we will have more to give to the ones that really need. We all know what the truly in need get is not enough since we waste so much on government expenditures and people that really don’t need it since they just don’t want to work.

We need more means of wealth creation for example if we have 5 people that need jobs and only 1 job available supply and demand proves the company can provide a lower wage for talent, but if the reverse occurs and we have 5 places that need positions filled and only 1 candidate with skills their value increases and they can get a higher wage. It is clear that we need more jobs and we need to create more demand for skilled labor that will provide more wealth to people that taking from one person to give to another.

Then we have silly comments like this:

Marz2

Really? This from a writer that regularly makes typos and spelling mistakes on twitter? I guess the pot met the kettle on this one. First it is twitter…clearly this guy is as partisan as it comes and allows that to influence his actions. This makes it certain that people like Marz do not understand how the system works and then when the truth hurts they try to make rude comments to cover the reality of the situation. This is the very thing we need to get past in order to work together and make real change. We need to stop spreading hate with silly tweets and focus on what we agree on so that we can create a discussion on our differences.

The Truth Battles Racism

Very well said

Chelene Nightingale

The Black-Female-Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences-President, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, stated after the Oscar-nominee-announcements, “the all-white acting slate inspires me to accelerate the academy’s push to be more inclusive.” and “hopes the film industry as a whole will continue to strive for greater diversity.” (Does anyone else see the irony?)

Last year the poignant film “12 Years a Slave” swept the Oscars with the movie winning “Best Film of the Year”.  The film, based on the book of the same name, was directed and produced by the very talented Steve McQeen (the Black gentlemen, not the deceased legendary actor). In addition Lupita Nyong’O won the award for “Best Supporting Actress” for her work in the film.

In fact if you examine the last 5 years of the Academy Awards, one would discover a list of “diverse” nominees and winners including the brilliant Denzil Washington, the lovely Octavia Spencer., the…
