The also have metal and battle damaged Poke-balls which look really cool. I always start with fire type though, so i’ll probably end up with the Charmander crystal Poke-ball. Who is your starter?

Pottermore

So I decided to visit Pottermore the other day. Basically Pottermore is just all fun stuff to do with the Harry Potter films. The main reason I visited the site was so that I could be sorted into my house at Hogwarts. I had to answer a series of questions. Here’s what the Sorting Hat told me:

I belong to house Hufflepuff

At least I get Cedric Diggory 😎

He comes with a voice chip, I haven’t used it yet since he’s still in the box, but it obviously has some of his notable quotes:

The Observable Universe

Pablo Carlos Budassi created a dazzling logarithmic visualization of the observable universe in 2013:
Observable Universe in One Image

The illustration features our solar system at the very center, followed by “inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, nearby galaxies, Cosmic Web, Cosmic microwave radiation and Big Bang’s invisible plasma on the edge,” according to Wikimedia Commons.
What do you think, does the image make you feel big or small in the grand scheme of things? I think it’s beautiful.

Tentacle Wars

I’ve been playing this game on my phone, it’s creepy but i’m totally loving it! Tentacle Wars takes place inside the body of an alien creature:

Tentacle Wars Game

Basically you are the anti-bodies fighting a war against an infection/ disease within this alien creature (represented by the green and red microbes respectively):

It is a strategy game. You have to over-power the disease by ‘capturing’ those cells through extending a certain number of tentacles. However, sometimes enemy cells are more powerful than you, and you first have to accumulate neutral (grey) cells to aid your cause:

Sometimes you cannot attack enemy cells outright, because you will be blocked by other neutral cells which you cannot overpower. You have to plan how best to use your cell energy to capture the enemy (some ways are more efficient than others):

There are numerous zones within each level of the game, and as you guessed it – it gets progressively more difficult as you advance.

As you know Boba Fett is one of my fave Star Wars characters. This is a posable Disney action figure. He can ‘armour up’ with extra pieces of equipment:
