5 Reasons Why Zenyatta is the Best Character in Overwatch Right Now

18 October, 2016 (21:24) | Uncategorized | By: jason

Overwatch is a first-person shooting game by Blizzard and it has been around for nearly 3 months now.

Since then, Blizzard has been releasing balancing updates as well as updates that feature new content, such as the new character Ana and the inclusion of a summer games inspired theme.

Because of its plethora of bug fixes and improvements, some characters have got awesome revamps while some are balanced in a way that doesn’t overpower other characters.

One such character that got a pretty good buff over recent updates is Zenyatta. Now, Zenyatta is actually a support character and I think that he should be the character in Overwatch right now.

Today, I am going to talk about the 5 reasons why I think Zenyatta should be the best character in the game.

1. He’s a Healer. Since Zenyatta is a support character, he has the ability to heal his teammates by flinging healing balls at them. The thing about Zenyatta’s heal is that you can only fling one Harmony Orb (the orb that heals) at one hero at a time. The beauty of this despite the one-hero policy is that you just fling the harmony orb at them and you can do other stuff (like killing the enemy). Once the character is fully healed, the Harmony orb will be returned to you so that you can use it on another teammate.

2. Discord Orb. Probably one of his biggest utilities and one that makes him a threat to whatever enemy he comes across with. For those of you who do not know, the Discord orb increases your damage taken. Once you have it, you better hide from enemy fire or it will only take the enemy a few shots to get rid of you. And oh, Zenyatta deals a lot of damage as well. So, if your character gets the discord orb from a Zenyatta, then make sure to hide.

3. Inspirational Quotes. Since Zenyatta is a robot monk, he usually spews out some inspirational quotes. Not only will this inspire his teammates but it will also inspire you in real-life.

4. Transcendence. Zenyatta’s ult, Transcendence, received a huge change. Before, his move speed stayed the same which made him weak in team battle compositions. Now, whenever Zenyatta uses his ult, his move speed is increased so that he can shield his allies and also heal them as well. If you do not know what Transcendence does, Zenyatta will appear in a Zen-like state, healing and shielding enemies making them invulnerable for a couple of seconds. His ultimate ability can change the tide of battle when used correctly.

5. He’s Just an Overall Good Character. Zenyatta is currently the best hero to use in team compositions. His ultimate ability is one of the most OP abilities in the game; his discord orb increases damage taken by enemies, and he can also deal a pretty good amount of damage himself.

If you’re playing Overwatch, I highly encourage you to try Zenyatta out. He may be unorthodox (flinging balls for heals and damage) but he can be a reliable asset to the team.

These are the 5 reasons why I think Zenyatta should be the best character in Overwatch right now.

Overwatch is an FPS game that is available on the PC, Xbox One, and the Playstation 4.

How Heavy Should You Lift To Build Muscle?

3 June, 2016 (23:05) | Muscle | By: jason

If you want to become muscular, you need to be lifting heavy weights. That is common knowledge and I think that you should really start lifting heavy today.

But, the question that often arises when asked this question is, “how heavy should you lift in order to build and develop muscles”?

That is understandable and in this article, I will talk about how heavy you should lift in order to get those big muscles.

The first thing I want to talk about regarding how heavy you should lift is that it depends on whether you’re performing the exercise with proper form or not.

No matter what exercise you’re doing, you should be performing it with the proper form. Then, slowly load up the barbell or dumbbell until you reach a point where your form starts to suffer.

I cannot stress this enough; you need to use proper form because not only does it target the muscles correctly but it also prevents injuries as well.

Let’s take deadlifting for example. This exercise should be performed with proper form otherwise you’ll be in a world of trouble.

Start off with weights that you’re comfortable with. Usually, I start deadlifting at 135lbs. I have full control of this weight so I start to add weight to it. Then, I reach 175lbs.

I can still control this weight and I have no problems with form. So, I load it up again and this time, I went ahead and did 215lbs. Again, this was no problem for me as I am having a good command of the weights.

And then I loaded the barbell up until I reached 310lbs. Then, my form starts to suffer; I have my back rounded a little bit and I couldn’t do more than 5 reps. Then I stop here because, like I’ve said, when form starts to suffer, you need to lower the weights to your previous stable configuration.

The idea here is to keep loading up the weights slowly until you reach a point where your form starts to suffer.

The next thing I want to talk about is the concept of PRs or Personal Records. PRs are usually just one rep maximum of any workout. For example, my PR in bench press is 250lbs which is 15% more of my body weight. I can only do 250lbs for one rep that is why it is called as a “personal record”.

The reason why I included this tip in the topic because by doing PRs every workout session, it will increase your strength over time than not doing them at all. That is because PRs are usually so taxing that it gives the necessary muscle tension to stimulate optimal muscle growth and development.

When performing a PR max, though, you need to have a spotter readily available to assist you at all times.

I hope that this article has shed some light about how heavy you should lift in order to build muscle. After reading this, be sure to apply the advice I’ve given and I promise you, you will have better muscle growth than ever before.

Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System

15 March, 2016 (21:16) | nintendo | By: jason

Fallout 4 is probably one of the best post-apocalyptic action RPGs of all time. A lot of people are raving about it and I think that is a pretty robust and expansive game in its own right.

But, did you know that Fallout 4 only borrowed some of the game’s elements from a previous game?

That game was none other than the Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Crystalis is an Action RPG game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. The story revolves around an anonymous male protagonist. The world suffered a massive thermonuclear attack that reduced the entire world into a primitive state.

In order for humanity to survive any more cataclysmic attacks, the survivors built a floating tower. This floating tower was supposed to be a refuge for the survivors, but because of the works of a nefarious human who calls himself “Emperor Draygon”, he makes use of evil magic to control the remaining military forces on Earth.

Because of this, Emperor Draygon was able to control the military and oppose people who are not in the floating tower from entering the safe haven.

The male protagonist will have to defeat Emperor Draygon’s forces in order for people to enter the floating tower. In order for him to even get to Emperor Draygon, he must defeat the “Dragonia’s Finest Four”.

The people who comprise this elite four are none other than Sabera the Witch, General Kelbesque, Karmine the Wizard, and the Swordsman Mado. Each of them has different weaknesses and the player must exploit these weaknesses in order to defeat them with relative ease.

All of the Dragonia’s Finest will have to be defeated twice, with the exception of Karmine who the player will only have to defeat once.

After reaching Emperor Draygon, the player will fight his human form. This is actually his fake form because Draygon is actually a dragon (no pun intended). After transforming into a dragon, the player is presented with an even greater threat.

But, the Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System has a different final boss, the “DYNA” machine. This machine is responsible for manipulating the Earth’s forces. It is up to the player to defeat this evil machine once and for all.

The Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is presented in a top-down view which allows the player to control the main character towards eight directions using the Nintendo Entertainment System’s controller.

Since the controller only has two buttons, the controls have become more simplified. Button 1 is the simple sword attack. Button 2, however, can be programmed to do something else. You can assign certain magic spells for this button or you can also use this button to open up the inventory on the fly (it is entirely up to you).

The Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System also follows the usual RPG elements wherein you battle different enemies and you will gain exp in return. After gaining certain EXP points, your character will level up giving him better stats and new spells.

Even though the game wasn’t popular at the time it was released, it is actually quite popular now. The Crystalis Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a good game for all action RPG fans out there.

Oppo R5

6 February, 2016 (21:05) | Oppo | By: jason

Oppo is one of the most prominent Chinese mobile phones manufacturers in the world. They always fashion their mobile phones to be one of the unique out on the market.

Today, we are going to discuss the Oppo R5 mobile phone. This mobile phone is one of the thinnest in the world having a mere 4.85 mm thickness. It might be the one of the thinnest but it is packed with a lot of really great features with a very good price.

The design of the Oppo R5 mobile phone is much similar to the iPhone but with a very slim form factor. This might be hard to grasp especially if you have large hands, but it fits any pocket (even those skinny jeans) perfectly.

For the display, the Oppo R5 mobile phone has a 5.2-inch Full HD screen. The display is surprisingly very good even in direct sunlight. It has an adaptive brightness adjustment that automatically raises the brightness for better viewing angles if you’re in well-lit places.

The Oppo R5 mobile phone, albeit cheaper than other premium mobile phones, has an impressive spec sheet. Under the hood, this mobile phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC Octa-core processor. It has four 1.5GHz cores and four 1GHz cores for an impressive performance boost.

It also comes with 2GB of system RAM to help multi-taskers do their thing without any quirks.

The Oppo R5 mobile phone has a custom version of Android Kitkat 4.4 called ColorOS 2.0. It still looks pretty much the same as the Kitkat version, although, it does have a better notification area which makes it more intuitive.

Probably the only problem with ColorOS 2.0 is that it doesn’t come with a lot of widgets, so you have to download certain widgets according to your needs.

The battery life is a little bit on the low side. The Oppo R5 Android mobile phone has a non-removable 2,000 MaH battery. With impressive specs, this battery capacity will not be able to power those for very long. Still, the price is way cheaper than other premium phones, so I couldn’t complain about its battery (although, it would be really nice if it were a little bit beefed up).

The R5’s camera is possibly one of the best things this mobile phone has (well, aside from the impressive processor and RAM). The phone’s camera is a 13-megapixel camera with LED to help you capture good quality pictures in low-lit environments.

The included camera is also quite good. The ColorOS camera app is akin to Sony’s default camera app and it has a lot of intuitive features and functions such as HDR and Panorama.

This mobile phone also comes with a 5-megapixel front camera that is perfect for people who always use their phones to Skype, for example. It is also quite clear compared to other premium phones on the market.

The Oppo R5 Android mobile phone is one of the best premium phones out there. It may not have a good battery capacity, but it still packs a lot of punch. And, for the price of only $500, it is really one of the best out there on the market.

Randy: “Hoppe motorcycle fairings are on the premium side of the equation, that is why I bought the Sportzilla. It not only looks premium, but it also has premium quality speakers. I am really happy with the purchase.”

The Hoppe Sportzilla sports some really nice features and build construction. It is just rightfully so, because this motorcycle fairing is not the cheapest one you can find. The Hoppe Sportzilla costs $1796.

SmoothTalker Mobile X1 Review

9 November, 2015 (11:11) | Uncategorized | By: jason

Do you own an RV? If so, you’re probably one of the many people who wants to go on the road for long trips. That is good and all, but the problem is that you may suffer from poor signal reception.

Mobile phones, or popularly known as Smartphones nowadays, require signals to operate certain functionalities such as text messaging, making calls, and surfing the internet. If you have little to no signal, you cannot enjoy these features.

This is especially true when you’re on the go. Normally, you will get signals from your service provider’s cell tower. Cell towers are able to broadcast signals across large distances. The problem is that there are a lot of things that can affect the signal strength: such as object interference and your distance from the cell tower.

How do you remedy the problem of poor signal reception? Get a mobile phone signal booster. If you are confused on which signal booster to get, you may want to look at the SmoothTalker Mobile X1.

The SmoothTalker Mobile X1 has a 50dB Gain amplifier, the highest dB signal amplifier allowed by law. It can also support 2G, 3G, and 4G signals. This signal booster is powerful enough to broadcast strong wireless signals even if you’re far from your network carrier’s cell towers.

What this mobile phone signal booster can do is get a little signal as it can and amplifies it, then it can broadcast those signals wirelessly across all your devices.

The SmoothTalker Mobile X1 supports dual-band frequencies 800 and 1900 MHz. What holds this signal booster from taking the top spot is that it only supports frequencies, as opposed to other competitors which can have up to 5.

This signal booster also comes with a 14-inch antenna, perfect for getting even the faintest of signals. The SmoothTalker Mobile X1 has the biggest outside antenna among other signal boosters and it has a forward gain of 5 dBi, which can get signals even across greater distances.

Now you know that features of the SmootherTalker Mobile X1, it is now time to buy one and know how to install it. The signal booster has six important components: the outside antenna, the inside antenna, the amplifier box, two coax cables and the car charger.

The signal booster also comes with a magnetic base, so you can install it on top of your car or RV without damaging the paint job.

Basically, what you need to do is attach the inside antenna directly to the amplifier with the 4-foot cable. The cable is shorter than its competitors and thus, you need to install the amplifier closer to the inside antenna.

The only major downside to the SmoothTalker Mobile X1 is the customer support. Unlike its competitors that has a dedicated phone line for any issues regarding the product, the product support line doesn’t have a live-chat option. But, the SmoothTalker Mobile X1 does offer a 3-year warranty, which is a pretty good deal.

With the longest outside antenna for a signal amplifier, the SmoothTalker Mobile X1 is one of the top signal boosters you can find.

Green Coffee Bean Extract advantages and tips

28 October, 2013 (17:34) | Green Coffee Bean | By: jason

The green coffee bean extract has become very popular since it was first introduced on the Dr. Oz Show. The main subject that this new superfood has revolved around is its ability to help you lose weight fast without changing your diet or adding strenuous workout exercises to your daily routine. What some people may have overlooked, however, are the other benefits that the green coffee bean extract can do for you. Here are a few other benefits that this new miracle extract holds in store for you.

green coffee extractAs with any new food that has been claimed to hold benefits for human health, scientists hold studies to find any conclusive evidence of this. Aside from evidence showing that the green coffee bean contains chemicals that can help curb your hunger, it is also revealed to help people who have problems with high blood pressure. There have been a few case studies where the researchers gave certain specific extracts of the green coffee bean to their subjects and received significantly lower blood pressure levels.

There have also been reported claims that the green coffee bean are also beneficial to patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and Type 2 Diabetes, but professional medical sites such as Web MD state that these claims have not been fully confirmed. Therefore, it is best to go to your doctor on questions concerning this issue.
The green coffee bean extract also has its fair share of side effects, for better or worse. As with any other dietary supplement, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are encouraged to stay away from such products. The green coffee bean extract as a drink is most likely a lot safer to take than in supplement form, but still holds some side effects related to caffeine (anxiety, headaches, and agitation)

Because of the green coffee bean’s growing demand, one should be extra careful when looking around sites that offer deals for the supplements of the extracts. Some sites can turn out to be scams that aim for your money by selling cheap products that can most likely do more harm to your body than good. To stay on the safe side, avoid buying such products online and shop in more reliable areas, such as your local pharmacy. Doing research beforehand can help keep you one step ahead of such fraudulent activity and protecting your overall health.
