New Xbox Console plus Kinect Package!

There re marketing an all white Xbox 360 plus and all white Kinect. Of course the Xbox has only 4 Gb of hard drive but is it worth an all white slim ? The old Xbox 360 was all white too but I like the way the slim looks all white. I would buy this if it was just an 320 gb Xbox 360 . Hahahaahahaha. Anyways it comes with the Xbox, Kinect, 3 free months of Xbox live gold, 1 all white controller and two Kinect games. Sounds like all there Kinect packages pretty much just all white. Its gonna be $299.00 of course. What do you think of this re marketing idea? This just came out today too by the way.

Vampire Kisses The Beginning Review

Author: Ellen Schreiber

Release Date: April 21, 2009

Published by: Kathrine Tegen Books

Edition: Paperback (562 pages)

How I got this Book: I bought it

The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years.
But one day it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious,
handsome inhabitant Alexander Sterling becomes the source
of much talk around town.Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl
who has always considered herself an outsider in "Dullsville",
is dertermined to uncover the truth surrounding the secretive Alexander.
As she gets to know him, and their spark intensifies, Raven finds herself
in some unanticipated situations. Can Alexander make her life
long dream come true? But love always has its complications
especially when it can only be awakened at nightfall.

My thoughts:

Yes this is a review of the first three books of the vampire kisses sires because I got edition of the first three in one book.First off I'd like to say that these books are good books to read. The main character Raven is a pretty easy character to get know.  She is a goth girl who loves vampires, who doesn't love vampires? But she does keep mentioning throughout all three of these books that she is goth, like through some of it, it is kinda funny how she says things and then sometimes its kinda annoying. Alexander seems like the kinda guy any girl can easily love. He is what everyone wants in a guy. There romance together is more little kiddish were they only hug and kiss. Maybe it adepts later on in the story line in the later books. Even though Alexander seems perfect he does have a past just like everyone else and it shows up. This problem does spice things up throughout all three books. At the end of the third it does end with kind of a cliffhanger.

I would say that these book are very easy reads I finished each one in one day. The only thing I would say is I would recommend this book for ages 11 to 15, because it is for a younger audience. But all in all I did enjoy this book.

Amy Review

Release date: January 17,2012
Microsoft points: $10.00
Consoles: Xbox360, Pc
Genere: Survival horror
Developer: Vectorcell
Rated: M
How I got this: I bought it

This game Amy is set in 2034 during a deadly comet strike that unleashes a virus to almost everyone. Lana is the name of the main character that you play as.Then there is Amy, a seemingly defenseless eight-year-old  girl who has curious powers. Together, they must fight or run from the infected humans, demons and the military, in the hope of not only saving each other, but also the future of humanity. There is a co-operative game play feature in this game. You have to keep Amy safe throughout the whole game. 

The enemies in this game are actually pretty cool looking. They do kinda look like zombies but they don't at the same time.

I think that this game is a lot like the silent hill sires. Anyways I did enjoy this game I thought it was pretty fun and worth the $10.00. But like always I'm sure they'll have a sale on it soon. Or I think they might have already, I'm not really sure.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare Review

Release date: February 22,2012

Microsoft points : 1200 ($15.00)

Genre: Action

Developer: Remedy

Console: Xbox 360 only

How I got this game: Bought it

                      I was super excited when I found out that they were making this game, I loved the first Alan wake and let me say that it does live up to the standards that I was expecting. Of course the game is like the original on how you fight enemies where you have to use light first then bullets. You do have to find manuscript pages and yes there is an achievement to find them all again. The new story line is pretty interestingthere is an evil version of you running around letting out the darkness and you have to stop him. That is pretty much all that is the same as the original. In the new game the is more of the actor Alan Wake (non- animated) then there was in the first. Which I did think was really cool. You can unlock new weapons with your manuscript pages that you find. There is many different new enemies  spiders and guys that can split in half over and over again and more. In stead of being in Washington he is in Arizona so its not so forestry around you. Also there is better graphics then the first like they did more work on the enemies.

                I would say that if you loved the first Alan Wake then you are gonna love the new game. I would say it is worth the 1200 points but I'm sure they will do a sale on it sometime they always do. I would give this game a 9 out of 10 bats.

Nightshade Book Review

 Title: Nightshade (Nightshade #1)
Author: Andrea Cremer
Release Date: October 19th 2010
Format: Hardcover


Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters’ laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything- including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

My thoughts:
This book's cover is what first got my interested with it, I thought it was beautiful. Then I read the back and decided that might be a book for me. So I sat down and read it. It took me less then 24 hours to do so. I couldn't put this book down I just wanted to keep reading it. After saving the boy who was out for a hike see notices tension between the one she is promised to and the guy she saved. Things become complicated because she doesn't want her pack to find out.Spoiler kind of highlight to read: She saves the hikers life more then once and she does fall in love with him. She never really like the guy she was promised to anyways. Ren can sometimes be very protective over her which does get a little annoying because you just want him to leave Shay and Calla alone throughout the book. I guess that what give this book some drama. There is also more plot to this book then i would have expected.There is witches who are the werewolf's masters and prophecies too! At the end of the book it diffidently makes you want to read the next because it does end in a cliffhanger. Which I need to buy.

The relationship between Calla and Shay is great, I think they go really well together and it shows you what their love is about.

 I didn't want to give away many spoilers even though I'm sure a lot of you have read this book already. This book is an easy read filled with werewolf drama and thrill.
