Superhero Skin

Here’s a cool infographic breaking down the uniqueness of superhero skin:

What type of skin do you have? I have transparent/vampire skin. It never tans and reflects the rays of the sun to reduce rising global temperatures. I use mostly Loreal skin care products; including the Body Shop. What do you recommend?

Alien Isolation Progress

Oh my word… So of course i’ve been playing Alien Isolation on and off. I find the scariness level so high that at times it’s really not enjoyable to play. I know i’m getting emotional about this, but when progression is dependent on a gamer not being scared – no progression takes place at all lol:

Ok; i am progressing, but very slowly. Gamers who play with headphones on are too brave. The music and other sounds booming from Sevastopol Station are too real for my emotions. This game is so intense i feel like my blood is clotting because its pumping so hard.

Heart Palpitations

Heart Palpitations

I’ve encountered the alien twice so far – in cut-scenes only thankfully. The most recent encounter was when it killed some employees on the station; after almost falling on top of me from an overhead vent:

I knew things were starting to get serious when they gave me my first gun and a motion detection scanner. At first i struggled with figuring out how to craft/select items and de-code some of the puzzles, but i’m getting the hang of it now:

I’m at the point where i’ve just made contact with my ship; and now an annoying alarm is sounding in my communication room. My objective is to get out of the room – without detection i assume. This assumption comes about because of these psycho robotic guys who try to prohibit you from accessing certain areas. Word of advice – don’t hit the robotic guys in the face with a wrench; they will stalk you and kill you:

Is anyone else playing Alien Isolation? What are your thoughts (let’s start a counselling group for those sleepless nights)?

Merchandise Monday #17

Going to work in heavy traffic? This merchandise Monday is for everyone who wishes they had a Bumblebee to bypass the rush hour:

Bumblebee

Bumblebee

Yellow isn’t my favorite colour either, but being a Transformer alone makes Bumblebee badass. Not to mention he probably has some next-gen fuel intake which could be beneficial for the wallet.

Real Life Zombies

You have to buy the November issue of the National Geographic! There’s a huge article in there about real life zombies!

National Geographic

National Geographic

I bought it; and its really insightful. Although it will probably make your skin crawl. The article touches on various parasites and viruses/bacteria that attack the neurological processes in their victims’ brains; and how they manipulate their host’s thinking to ensure their own growth and survival.

Real Life Zombies

Real Life Zombies

There are a few comic book style stories amidst the article; to illustrate scenarios of how these real life zombies are at work all around us. Do you think our brains are being manipulated by one of these organisms? Are we really in control?

Merchandise Monday #16

My exams are now over! CELEBRATE… Sorry for that little outburst 🙂 Moving on to merchandise Monday. I came across these Disney Infinity Marvel Superheroes:

Groot

Groot

They are pretty cute, but wow; for their tiny size the price is a bit insane. I didn’t buy them; i just thought i’d share them with you – since Christmas is around the corner and all 😉

Rocket Raccoon

There were other characters as well; but the Guardians of the Galaxy were my favorite ones. Others in the collection include Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and pretty much any Marvel hero.
