Kingdom Hearts Unchained X Impressions.

Kingdom Hearts Unchained X Impressions.

I've always been a fan of the Kingdom Hearts gaming franchise. I remember it being the sole reason that I wanted a PS2 when the first game was released and I played it for hours on end although sadly I was never able to beat it. When Kingdom Hearts Unchained X was released for iOS and Android earlier this year in the U.S. I downloaded it to my tablet the second I saw in mentioned in the Play Store. 

After playing for 177 consecutive days this game still manages to hold my attention despite being a VERY repetitive and simple RPG game where you tap and swipe incessantly at your enemies. I'd consider myself a pretty dedicated player at a decent level (223 of the current 300 max) and I've never put a dime into the game. Nope, not even the Google Play credit I earned from those Google Opinion surveys. So for those who have rated the game with one to two stars because its a pay-to-win/play game... try again or better yet try harder. If you don't like they game for other reasons that's understandable but saying that you absolutely have to pay to progress is simply not true in my experience.

Amino, Where Have You Been All My Life?

Amino, Where Have You Been All My Life?

It's been awhile since I've really just fallen in love (or heavy like) with any social apps. I'm a little burnt out on the infamous Facebook and I mainly just use it to lurk on family and friends now. I occasionally post things about food, date nights, and watching movies but its essentially a yawn fest user experience for me. I have also started to use my twitter account a bit more but it isn't something I check everyday or have made a lot of connections with. I presume it could be because of the 140 character limit but I think there's a little more to it than that such as the lack of engagement. I realize that getting people to interact with you should be at least a 50/50 effort but its just so much work. Some people are able to get interaction from their followers without putting in much action themselves but I don't feel like I'm quite at that level. I definitely plan to continuously work on it though. 

The only other social platform I've used sporadically in the past years is Google+, I joined while it was still in beta stage and for quite some time it was my absolute favorite site to frequent. I've made a few friends from the site and initially met my hubby through the site as well so it has had its highlights for sure. Unfortunately within the past year or so its struggled to hold my interest. But never fear, Amino is here!

iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus, I Can Dig It!

iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus, I Can Dig It!

There are many people in my social circles online that loathe anything made by Apple regardless of whether it is an iPhone, iPad or even a MacBook however I do not fit into that category... its doubtful that I ever will. I'm all about technology as a whole so while I'm a huge fan of Google and Android development I have no allegiance to any particular brand or manufacturer. 

I love living in a world where I have the freedom to chose what I want, having options is great for all of us as consumers. Not to mention... a little healthy competition isn't hurting anyone!
