Product Review: Skinseed

Hey, Minecraft fans!  Today, we will be talking about how to create your own Minecraft skin!  This confused me for quite a while until I downloaded Skinseed.  Skinseed is a skin launcher that allows you to create, download, and customize skins to export to Minecraft.  Skinseed is the simplest skin launcher that I’ve seen by far.  Here’s how to use it:

Create!

When you download the app, go to the wardrobe, click the small orange circle with the white “+” sign in its center and select “template skins”.  You’ll start with a guy who has a grey shirt, long, dark hair, and brown slacks.  From there, you can either use the colors you have or tap the small color wheel and make new colors!  Keep exploring the different buttons on the bottom bar and learn how to use them to create the best skins possible!  (Yes, it is possible to delete skins.)

Download!

Now, we’ll talk about downloading skins.  If you’re feeling too lazy to make a certain skin, like Iron Man, you can click the triple line in the top left corner of the screen and choose the “search” button.  From there, you can search and browse until you find what you need.

Customize!

Once you’ve downloaded or created a skin you can always edit it.  So now, we will talk about layers and naming skins.  Layers are really fun to use, and they help you create the skin of your dreams!  All you need to do is click the button that looks like two squares overlapping each other.  If you want to get really advanced, go to the color wheel and you will see a new white bar.  Moving the adjuster to the left will make the layer more transparent.  Moving it to the right will make the layer thicker.

Naming skins is pretty easy.  All you need to do is select the skin you want to name, and click the button with three dots that’s located under the picture of your skin.  Then, tap the “name skin” button and type in what you want to name that skin._20170502_1041381

Skinseed has helped me make my Minecraft world more interesting and fun.  I hope you join the fun and get this app too.

Product Review: Real Racing 3

What’s up racers!  If you’re looking for a good car game for tablets, this is the one for you.  Real Racing 3 pushes it to the limits when it comes to tablet or phone racing games.

It has thirty-one different car manufacturers and ONE HUNDRED SIXTY-SEVEN cars in total!  There are several circuits in several countries.  Here are the countries that I know of:

  • America
  • France
  • Dubai
  • Australia

Okay, maybe it’s really not that many, but they have several tracks from each country.  Some of the American tracks feature Daytona and Indianapolis!  These are a few pics from the game:

Be sure to look for “Real Racing 3” the next time you’re in in the app store! (It’s free!)

 

Product Review: Battlefield 4 (part three) Objectives NOT as told by Mega Blox

Hey, readers!  Last time, we went over my favorite vehicles in Bf4.  Today, we’re talking about Battlefield’s objectives and how to play them.  Remember, this game is rated ‘M’ for mature.

There are thirteen different game modes.  Here they are:

  1. Conquest
  2. Rush
  3. Team Death Match
  4. Squad Death Match
  5. Obliteration
  6. Domination
  7. Air Superiority (one of my favorites)20161201_074449
  8. Capture the Flag
  9. Carrier Assault (large)
  10. Carrier Assault (small)
  11. Chainlink
  12. Squad Obliteration
  13. Gun Master

First, let’s discuss Battlefield’s signature game mode, Conquest.  The idea is to capture and hold objectives.  The way you do that is by going into a certain area called a capture point.  If you’re capturing alone and one enemy is on the objective with you,then it will not capture.  That’s the same with two, three, four, and so on.  Above, is me defending objective ‘Charlie’ from an attacker.  Also, if you are capturing an objective and get outnumbered, the capture status goes backward and the enemy team takes back the objective.

Now for rush, as I promised in part one.  The Objective for the attackers is to blow up a set of M-COMs.  M-COMs are these box-like objects that hold fragile data.  The attackers need to destroy that data.  Here’s how to do it.  You need to get to the M-COM station and hold the ‘square’ button (‘X’ on X-Box) for certain amount of time until it’s armed.  Then, you must keep the defenders from disarming it.  You need to do that to two M-COMs per set.  There can be as little as three sets, or as many as six.

Product Review: Battlefield 4 (part two) Vehicles as told by Mega Blox

What’s up, gamers!  Welcome to part two of the Battlefield 4 product review.  Previously, we discussed the infantry standpoint of Battlefield 4.  Today we’re learning about Battlefield 4’s vehicles.  Remember, this game is rated ‘M’ for mature.

The list includes lots of vehicles, so I’ll discuss my favorites.  Here’s the entire list:

  1. Tanks
  2. Two types of LAVs (Land Attack Vehicles): anti-infantry and anti-air
  3. Attack boats
  4. Scout helicopters
  5. Attack helicopters
  6. Transport helicopters
  7. Attack jets
  8. Stealth jetsimg_20161115_1322218251
  9. Transport trucks
  10. Jeeps
  11. Jet skis
  12. Transport boats
  13. Quad bikes

First, let’s talk about tanks.  They have lots of different types of shells (bullets), but only two can be equipped at a time.  Regular shells are called primary and special shells that do different things, like locking onto tanks, are called secondary.  They can also be equipped with various accessories, but only two can be put on your tank at a time.  I am  going to name what I’ve  equipped on my tank:

  • Sabot shells (non-explosive rounds that that deal high amounts of enemy vehicles)
  • Staff shells (explosive rounds that when fired, lock onto the tank at the very last20161115_160159 minute and hit the tank from the top)
  • Active protection (laser detonator that blows up incoming projectiles)
  • Reactive armor (extra armor that absorbs enemy fire and decreases damage to the tank)

 

Well, I think we have time for one more vehicle.

An air vehicle.

One of the most deadly air vehicles of all!

(*drum roll*)

ATTACK HELICOPTERS!

Attack helicopters are like the tanks of the skies!  They’re equipped with rocket pods, secondary missiles, flares, and lots of accessories to choose from.  You can customize your load out for the gunner’s seat as well.  This is my load out:

  • Hydra rockets (type of rocket)
  • Air-to-air missile (missile that will lock onto enemy aircraft)
  • Jyro-stabilizer (a device that will stabilize the air craft faster when immobilized)
  • ECM jammer (a smoke that can be emitted from the helicopter that prevents missile locks and disrupts incoming missiles)

What do you think about the infantry standpoint of Battlefield 4?

“I like that you play as a team and you earn points based on how effectively you work with your team.”

What is your favorite map on Battlefield and why?

“I think I have two favorite maps in BF4. The first is Siege of Shanghai because there is plenty of infantry cover and you can move across the map quickly. It also has great sniper points. My second favorite is Locker because it’s all close quarters combat.”
