Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Fire Emblem is one of the most influential games of all time. If it weren’t for this game, gamers will not have experienced turn-based, strategy RPG games.

In today’s article, we are going to talk about the Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon game for the Nintendo DS.

The Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon game for the Nintendo DS is a remake of the very first Fire Emblem. Basically, the game’s developers not only enhanced the storyline but they’ve also made a graphical overhaul of the game as well.

The story revolves around Marth and his pursuit to take back the Kingdom that is rightfully his. 100 years prior to Marth’s storyline, the game focuses on the continent of Archanea. The continent was invaded by a greedy empire called the “Dolhr Empire” which is led by a very powerful shadow dragon who goes by the name “Madeus”.

Madeus is very powerful and because of his immense ability to bring destruction, the citizens of Archanea lived in fear and despair. A princess that goes by the name “Anri” rose to the occasion and defeated Madeus by using a magic-imbued Falchion.

The continent enjoyed 100 years of peace until Madeus was once again resurrected by the Dohlr Empire. During this time, Cornelius, the current king of Altea and father of Marth set forth to defeat Madeus with the magical Falchion once again.

Marth was sent by his father towards a nearby island, Talys, in order to escape the kingdom and hone his abilities as a warrior. Cornelius was never heard of again. Because of this, Madeus and the Dohlr empire successfully invaded the kingdom of Altea and made it their own.

A few years after Cornelius’ disappearance, the princess of Talys named “Caeda” informed Marth of what happened. Marth vowed to return to his kingdom to reclaim what was rightfully his and he is bent on defeating Madeus for good.

As mentioned earlier, the Fire Emblem franchise was the first game to ever introduce the turn-based strategy game genre. This game employs that same mechanic, albeit with really rich enhancements.

There are 25 chapters that the player must face which should last you more than 30 hours of gameplay. There are up to 6 difficulties that the player can choose (from really easy, to the most intense and hardcore difficulty).

The Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon game for the Nintendo DS makes use of the portable gaming console’s two screens. The bottom screen shows the overall map while the top screen shows the unit information.

You can move throughout the map and you can attack in various ways. If you use a melee unit, that unit must be placed beside the enemy to attack it within range. If you use a ranged character, you can place them a few cells away from the enemy player. Use these mechanics to your advantage to win the game.

The Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon game for the Nintendo DS is also the first turn-based RPG game to employ online multiplayer play. This feature is wildly accepted because you can team up with 4 other players to finish campaign missions. You can talk via the included microphone that is built in the portable gaming console.

If you want an absolutely gorgeous and fun turn-based strategy game, then look no further than the Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon game for the Nintendo DS.

HTC One M9

Are you going to buy a mobile phone anytime soon! If so, I will show you a mobile phone that will probably entice you.

Introducing the HTC One M9. HTC is a Taiwanese mobile company that has created a lot of good mobile phones over the years. With the massive success of HTC One M8, the company is on their way in creating another perfect phone.

In order to make the perfect phone, the new phone should rectify the issues that the old model had. So, without further ado, let’s talk more about the HTC One M9.

The HTC One M9 has an all-metal durable construction. If you look at other mobile phones on the market, you would instantly notice that they’re still using a plastic base. That really does not bode well, especially on the durability department.

With the HTC One M9, you will not only get an all-metal build construction, but it is also appealing to look at as well. It has a curved Unibody that achieves a premium look. It also has mirrored edges with a dual-tone appearance to further accentuate its elegant design.

Speaking of Design, there are some notable changes of the phone from its previous iterations. For one, the power button is now conveniently placed at the right side of the phone. This is a more natural placement for the power button, which makes unlocking the phone a much easier endeavor.

Although, the HTC One M9 has a micro SD slot, it is placed under the bevy of buttons at the right-hand side. It is a bit obscure, but if you want to change the volume, for example, you can accidentally press the micro SD slot. Still, it is not a major quirk to be honest.

The “Boom” speakers, as the company calls it, are carefully placed at the front of the mobile phone. They’ve teamed up with Dolby to help deliver a very good sound experience right on of a mobile phone. If you’re a music lover, you would definitely love the HTC One M9.

Since the HTC One M9 sports an all-metallic design, it does add to the overall weight of the phone. This mobile phone weighs around 157 grams, which is a little bit heavier compared to its competitors.

But, enough about the design. Let’s talk about the camera. Since most of the people nowadays are fond of taking memories and photos, the HTC One M9 is equipped with a 20.7-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel camera with UltraPixel technology. In layman’s terms, the front-facing camera now has a faster shutter speed and it can also take in more light to give your selfies a really huge improvement.

The HTC One M9 is a powerful device as it is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, with a total of 8 cores (4 cores clocked at 1.5GHz, and 4 cores that are clocked 2GHz). Couple that with 3GB of RAM, and you’re in for a high-performing mobile phone.

This mobile phone also comes with a bigger battery capacity of 2,840 MaH. It would’ve been nice if it were powered with a little bit more, but I think this will do for most users.

The HTC One M9 is a truly impressive phone and one that you should consider buying if you are on the lookout for a good mobile phone. The HTC One M9 currently retails at $295.

The SlimGram Weight loss pill costs $25.98.

They will stand outside in the weather, hang out their windows, drive up and down the road. They do whatever it takes to be able to use their mobile phone at home.

The solution is quite simple really. A signal booster usually does the trick. A signal booster enhances the signal from the cell masts and makes it much more powerful so that a mobile phone can be used at home with reliable confidence.

There are different networks and most all offer a signal booster of sorts to improve reception. The UK is a relatively large area of coverage for any network and there is going to be black spots in certain areas where networks overlap or where the coverage is limited do to the region.

A signal booster can very likely solve your black spots. The Vodafone signal booster is one of the network boosters that is available and is highly recommended by most users.

First Things First

Everyone has one question that they place above all others when it comes to these devices. Does it work? The answer for the Vodafone signal booster is a very simple, yes it does. This signal booster provides an enhanced signal about 100% of the time. If very remote locations the strength of the signal will likely degrade the further away from the booster that you go BUT it does work in every situation.

Next Up

Installation is always a big concern with most people. The good news is the Vodafone signal booster is an easy install. Basically it is set up as soon as it comes out of the box. It is quick and easy. You do not need any special knowledge or any special tools to set up this signal booster.

Beats By Dre Headphones

In the course of the making of this genius set of device, Dr. Dre did say, and I quote, “People aren’t hearing all the music. With Beats, people are going to hear what the artists hear, and listen to the music the way they should: the way I do. With this I was very intrigued and hence the weighing on the on the Beats Audio sound quality. I wanted to find out whether the set really was worthy of the two years of hard work that it took Dre, Monster and Brunner to complete it.

Noise cancellation

This is probably one of the most striking features of the set. On the right ear cup, there is a minute button that switches the set on and off, at the same making it easy to initiate the noise cancellation effect. Moreover, you must have noticed that Beats log on the left cup. That is not to be confused for decoration, since it is a button that serves the push-to-hear control function. This cuts out the music and the noise cancellation simultaneously to make hearing your surrounding easy if you would want to, hence no need of removing the entire set.

Sound quality

It may surprise you that the beats by Dre have a nauseating effect on the user. Alas! That is just but a stereotype, which has been a null hypothesis with no confidence level at all to base the argument on. The best part is that the set has steady highs and smooth pumping bass. However, the most surprising part is that, these output are based on a volume level of less than half the total volume level. Therefore, if you are the full-blast rock fanatic, then this set would do you good. So, with this set, there is no need of cranking up the volume to maximum unlike other sets.

The Audio Output

The bass may have been earlier on overemphasized, as the device is more of a Stereo headset. This contorts the sound result since not every sound file is entitled to intense bass. This device has a fluctuating sound spectrum that jumps up to 7 dB (Deci Bells). This in turn has an effect on the output frequency as it is forced to scale from 100 Hz to 600 Hz. Since this is the basic sound output, you may find no need of using san equalizer irrespective of the song you are listening to. Hence, there is a constant audio precision for both bass and non-bass dependent songs…quite a touché, don’t you think?

Soundproof mechanism

You may be that sound engineer, artist or even producer to whom sound means a lot. This set would most satisfy your desire as it has a sound proof mechanism. The mechanism ensures that all the sound from the output device is received fully, with no loss to the external environment. This is made possible by the presence of plugs, sort of ear plugs that attach to the earlobe when one wears the headset. Therefore, you are most likely to concentrate on your music production in the best environment possible.

As a pointer, it is evident that the set is really worth the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $250 and allegations that the set has a commuter (Dr. Dre’s fame) oriented marketing should not be taken into consideration.


Green Coffee Bean Extract – truth in the claims?

Coffee is the world’s third most popular beverage consumed, and the number one stimulant. Tea and water are the only two drinks more popular than coffee. And green coffee that’s made from coffee beans that haven’t been roasted is gaining in popularity. Green coffee contains high levels of chlorogenic acid, a powerful antioxidant that promotes the eradication of free radicals to achieve better health. There’s evidence to suggest that consuming green coffee has several positive health benefits.


Reduced Levels of Hypertension


A study that was carried out by the Kao Corporation in Tokyo, Japan showed that the consumption of green coffee extract can have a positive impact on mild cases of hypertension in humans and rats. Their research demonstrated that the blood pressure response in rats and humans was directly correlated with the dosage level of the green coffee intake. Greater blood pressure affects were achieved with higher doses of green coffee. The study also noted that the positive outcomes could be obtained with much lower risks of side effects than what were possible using prescription drugs.


Increased Weight Loss


There is also growing evidence that green coffee extract consumption is associated with greater levels of weight loss. The Oryza Oil & Fat Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan conducted a study that demonstrated how the body weight of mice can be positively affected when they consumed green coffee extract. The findings established that the caffeine and chlorogenic acid combination in green coffee inhibited the accumulation of fat, thereby making green coffee consumption a potentially effective product for controlling weight.


Effect on Diabetes


Additional research suggests that green coffee consumption can also benefit diabetics. The HelwanUniversity in Cairo, Egypt, published a study in the”Journal of American Science” that confirmed the blood glucose and insulin levels can be decreased by consuming green tea. Their research established that the chlorogenic acid found in coffee and not just green coffee, may directly influence the antagonistic effect on how glucose is transported in your body.


Potential Side Effects


As promising as the consumption of green coffee extract may appear, there may also be side effects to consider. Even though green coffee extract contains less caffeine than coffee brewed with roasted beans, there’s still the potential for caffeine related complications. Frequent consumption of green coffee extract may still lead to undesirably high levels of caffeine concentration in the body which can lead to headaches, anxiety, insomnia, irregular heartbeats, and nervousness.


Common symptoms that are known to be associated with caffeine withdrawal such as difficulty concentrating and depression can manifest themselves if the user eliminates the supplement from daily consumption. It’s also known that caffeine can have negative interactions with certain medications, particularly those medications used for treating depression and diabetes.
