Boom Beach: Heavy Choppers The Most Powerful Troop Type Ever?

This week only we’re getting a special prototype troop in Heavy Choppers. Previously, Heavy Choppers were exclusive to Warships but now it’s been made available to the normal base. After my initial playthrough with them, I must admit that this troop possibly is the best troop I have yet played with in this game.

Lego Review: 60271 Main Square

Since I have not done a Lego review in a long time and that I just picked up the 60271 Main Square set and built it this morning, I figured it would be good to write up my thoughts on what looks like a grand set that in reality is somewhat controversial from my viewpoint as a hardcore collector of Town.

Lego Chinese Knock Offs on Amazon

While browsing through sets I wish I could afford on Amazon, I ran across what I initially believed to be an old Lego set that was being re-sold. To my disbelief, I found my first truly imitation Lego set that for me is an utter insult to the brand of Lego and poses a definitive threat to their brand.

Diablo 3: Beyond Season 23 and Patch 2.7.0 Ideas

Patch 2.7.0 has been a real gift to the power gamer type with the upgrade to Followers as well as the new Emanate system. With that system in place, a lot more doors begin to open up that demonstrate future potential improvements to the game, even if the basic idea is the same loop. But this post discusses my own additions so that there’s more ways to use loot and how Diablo 3 can continue to be updated.

Completed Seasonal Journey For Season 23 of Diablo 3!

I woke up extra early this morning and felt the urge to finish up the season journey. The biggest challenge, sad to say, was the set dungeon. But I had an Invoker set ready to roll along with other supporting gear so I said what the hell.

WWE Makes A Few Deep Cuts; Will AEW Pick The Remainder Up?

Saw that WWE made a few releases; some surprising, others not so surprising. The three that made me look twice were Samoa Joe, the Iiconics and Mickie James. I only say look twice because those were the three people I was most familiar with as I do not keep up with the product. There were others as well but the only other name I’m somewhat familiar with is Chelsea Green.

Wrestling Champions

Recently, on a Jim Cornette podcast, they discussed the best wrestlers over the age of say 50. Jim’s pick for whom he believed was the best ended up being Nick Bockwinkel. After consideration, I thought he was pretty on the mark, which then made me think of this topic as other names and ideas began swirling in my mind. Ultimately, I ended up thinking of the topic of wrestling champions and what makes a good one and how my own views have changed over time.

Diablo 3 Season 23 Starting Out

Since I finished up Baldur’s Gate 2 recently, I’ve started thinking about Diablo 3 Season 23, which probably will start during the first week of April. I have a few ideas of what I want to do and decided to put some of that down on a post.

Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition: Neutral/Evil Party Play Through Review

I decided to give Baldur’s Gate 2 a final swing using a neutral/evil type of party. Originally, the goal was to go completely evil, especially with the main character to fully exploit that side of the game. However, I ended up backtracking and utilizing a Chaotic Neutral main character, which would allow me more flexibility in terms of questing.

Alien: Brett Cocoon vs Brett Egg

Recently, I ran across a video showing rare footage of HR Giger painting a prop of Brett in a cocoon. The description of the video made it sound gruesome in terms of the cocoon being more hideous. Turns out it was the same cocoon from HR Giger’s Alien book.
