When it comes to dieting and losing weight, most people think that foods that contain fat should be avoided at all costs.

That was the conventional wisdom for many, many years. So long as you’re not eating foods that contain fat, you should be okay.

But, research has shown that there is some form of fats that you should be introducing to your body.

So in this article, I will tell you the things that you should know about good and bad fats. It is time to squash any misconceptions about the topic as it is best to be informed about things, especially when it comes to nutrition.

First, we will talk about the “bad” fats. Examples of “bad” fats are Saturated Fats and Trans fat. Saturated Fats come from Red Meat, Dairy products such as butter and cream, and other fatty meats.

Trans fat can be gotten from vegetable oils that have hydrogen introduced into the mix. It can also be seen in some meats, although their trans fat content is negligible.

Now, why do you need to avoid these forms of fat? These fats, Saturated, and Trans fat, poses a threat to our health. Saturated fats, if consumed in large quantities, can actually increase our LDL or “bad cholesterol”.

LDL is responsible for building up plaque in our blood vessels, causing them to narrow down. This increases our risk of heart attacks and other nasty health problems.

Trans fat can also contribute to blood vessel blockage and it can also increase your levels of bad cholesterol. But, unlike Saturated fats, Trans Fat actually brings more bad cholesterol into your body.

Armed with this knowledge, I am not saying you should ditch Saturated fats altogether, but you should definitely ditch Trans fat. Saturated fats are okay to consume so long as you’re consuming it in moderate quantities.

Now that you know the two types of “bad” fats, let’s now talk about the “good” fats. The good fats are unsaturated fats and omega 3 fatty acids.

What separates the unsaturated fats from their saturated counterparts is that most, if not all, unsaturated fats can be found in natural sources and not processed ones.

Why do you need “good” fats in your body? That is because good fats are actually beneficial to your body as they regulate and promote certain bodily functions. For example, omega 3 fatty acids promote the production of anti-inflammatory hormones.

Unsaturated fats provide “good” cholesterol in your body. Unsaturated fats also help prevent cardiovascular diseases and these fats also help with vitamin absorption and increasing your energy levels.

So, where do you get these good fats? Omega 3 fatty acids are commonly found in fish such as Salmon, Mackerel, just to name a few. Even your canned tuna contains Omega 3 fatty acids.

Unsaturated fats can be gotten from nuts, fruits and vegetables, and even olive oils. Since these can be consumed readily, aim to increase your unsaturated fats consumption.

Now that you are well-equipped with the correct knowledge about these things, it is time for you to increase your unsaturated fats and omega 3 fatty acids consumption while lowering your saturated fats and completely eliminating Trans fat from your diet.

Different games have different genres, and there are a lot of genres out there. It can range from action, adventure, Role-playing, social, among others.

Now, what if a game incorporates a lot of elements from those different genres? That would be amazing, right?

Today, we are going to talk about a particular game from the Nintendo Entertainment System that is not only fun, but the game is action-packed.

The Vice: Project Doom Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System incorporates driving and shooting elements into the game. It even includes some romance segments as well making this game one of the most comprehensive games ever made for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The story of the Vice: Project Doom Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is about fighting aliens. In the distant future, there is a large corporation under the name “B.E.D.A” that was involved in the development of multiple electronic equipments for the creation of military weapons.

It turns out that this corporation was run by aliens who are secretly fortifying their army to invade Earth for good.

They have developed an unknown substance they call the “Gel” which is equivalent to our drugs here on Earth. It has been extensively sold worldwide without the police operatives knowing about the effects.

The player will take on the role of Detective Hart, a solid member of the anti-alien task force assigned to investigate the B.E.D.A corporation. Of course, to add to the spice of the story, Detective Hart will be accompanied by his lover and fellow Vice agent Christy. Both of them will traverse through 11 stages full of aliens who want to erase them from the face of the Earth.

The first stage and the tenth stage all incorporate driving levels. In the said stages, you will drive a car while you’re either chasing B.E.D.A personnel or being chased by them. In these stages, you will have to showcase your mad driving skills as it is quite a bit challenging.

In all of the other stages, you will have to use your marksmanship skills in order to defeat the aliens with nefarious intentions. The game also makes use of cinematic-style sequences in order to give the narrative of the game. This is unheard of during the height of this game’s popularity, that is why I am happy to know that the Vice: Project Doom Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System incorporated this narrative style.

Detective Hart can make use of 3 weapons: the 44 Magnum Revolver, the M-24 Stick Grenades, and a Laser Whip. You can cycle through these 3 weapons depending on the situation.

The Laser whip only has a short range but it does quite a lot of damage. The revolver is a ranged weapon, but you have to reload often to be able to use it. And lastly, should there be a need for some drastic measure, the stick grenades should be used.

The Vice: Project Doom Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is an amazing game. With a good story, a great narrative, and different game elements rolled into one, this game is a really good game.

The game, Cut the Rope, has invaded the iPhone mobile phone users by storm. Since its inception, a lot of people were hooked on the game because of its dynamics and sheer fun gameplay.

Cut the Rope: Magic is the second installment of this popular game and it now has a slew of new and improved features. The things that are new to this game are:

  • A magical world with completely new graphics, sound and gameplay elements
  • 5 ways to transform Om Nom into magical creatures along his journey
  • Complex boss levels that will challenge your candy-crunching, rope-cutting skills
  • 100 all-new puzzles, with more coming soon

The story revolves around Om Nom, a cute and lovable character who loves to eat a lot of stuff like candies and other delicious objects. A magic that gone wrong sent Om Nom to a magical world filled with untold mysteries and puzzling challenges.

The player will have to gobble his way to finishing each level until they reach the evil wizard that was responsible for teleporting Om Nom into an unknown world.

Cut the Rope: Magic is an entirely revamped version of the game in that it now has far more improved graphics, far more challenging levels, new game mechanics, vivid visual backgrounds, and many more!

As previously mentioned, due to some new game mechanics, Om Nom can now transform into different forms, each having their own set of advantages.

The first form is the bird form which helps Om Nom fly and avoid obstacles and any potential traps. This is perfect for levels that are too cumbersome to solve.

The second form is the Baby form which helps Om Nom reach small and restricted spaces.

The third form turns Om Nom into a Fish which allows Om Nom to dive deep down a particular stage and get all the hidden treasures.

The fourth form is the mouse form which gives Om Nom a far more sensitive nose to help him locate delicious candies!

And the last form is the Spirit form which turns Om Nom into an ethereal being which makes him immune to damage.

All these forms have a certain time limit and that you cannot abuse them for a long time. Be sure to activate these forms in different scenarios to gain an unparalleled advantage.

This game is highly acclaimed because of the sheer fun and enjoyment it brings. Not only that but the highly improved visuals give players some eye candy.

Also, if you were scratching your head in the previous game because of some of the most challenging levels, the new Cut the Rope: Magic will leave you bald. No, just kidding! But, the new game will have more challenging levels, so expect a hair-splitting, head scratching game at that.

Cut the Rope: Magic just enhanced the working formula of the previous game and added new and improved gameplay elements and visuals.

Cut the Rope: Magic is available for download on the Apple app store and you only have to pay $1.

Almost all of the pro gamers out there use Gaming headsets as opposed to full-fledged speakers. Why? Because they can hear a lot more when they use dedicated gaming headsets.

So today, we are going to take a look at a gaming headset offering from Corsair. I am talking about the Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset. Here are the features of the Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset:

The first thing that really surprised me are the audio drivers. The Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset sports two 50mm Neodymium drivers for an impressive sound experience. Hear clear highs, robust mids, and bombastic bass thanks to these 50mm drivers. I really love the fact that Corsair is one of the only gaming peripheral companies out there that fit their gaming headset lines with 50mm drivers as most of the other competitors still stay stuck at 40mm.

Other than the huge audio drivers, let us talk about the microphone. The Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset has a Uni-directional noise-cancelling microphone that lets you speak without any extraneous noise that can be heard on the other side.

Furthermore, another cool feature of this gaming headset is their so called “Infomic”. Basically, at the tip of the microphone lie LED lights that comprise of different things such as the EQ settings, Dolby settings, microphone mute status, and battery life. You do not need to press alt+tab in order to see if these things are on or off; it is conveniently marked on the microphone.

As for comfort, the Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset is fitted with their “True Form” microfiber-wrapped memory foam ear cups. What this basically means is that the foam carefully hugs your ears for maximum comfort. It takes on the shape of your ears and it fits nicely, allowing you to wear it for prolonged gaming sessions.

And lastly, the inclusion of the RGB lighting scheme on the headphones. You can basically create a lighting profile on the Corsair Utility Engine. In fact, if you have other Corsair gaming RGB peripherals, you can have them work in unison to give you a very nice light show.

All of the settings on the Corsair Void RGB Gaming headset can be tweaked using the proprietary CUE software. Unlike other gaming headsets, the CUE software is easy to navigate and it is easy to configure as well.

All in all, the Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset is a really good gaming headset, giving you an unparalleled audio experience, a great handy mic with indicators, and an RGB lighting scheme. You can get the Corsair Void RGB Gaming Headset for only $110.

You may be a fan of Nintendo games consoles, PlayStations or Xboxes. If you are in the first group, then you may not need any convincing to buy the Wii U. But if you are in the latter two groups, then you may wonder why you should consider buying the Nintendo games consoles, the Wii U in particular.

Here are some reasons why Nintendo Wii U is a better choice.

  • The first reason is the games. Let us look at the facts as they stand. Nintendo Wii U has Super Mario 3D World, there is Lego City Undercover, Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3. None of these games are available on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. If you are a fan of these games or intend to play them, then your obvious choice is the Nintendo Wii U. Likewise, there are some games that Sony and Microsoft would boast of and Nintendo will fail to deliver upon but then the games mentioned here are the more popular ones and most gamers would like to have rather than some done to dusted games on the two more expensive platforms. Nintendo Wii U comes with more games than you would get with the other consoles and there are many more lined up for the holiday season and at the beginning of 2015.
  • The Nintendo Wii U GamePad is a reason enough to go against the Sony and Microsoft consoles. A portable console, the Gamepad is actually a game changer. If you have not used the Gamepad and along with that the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, then you will not know how fascinating they are and why people are thronging to pick those up at the stores. Simply because they are not as well advertised as the Kinect or the DualShock don’t imply that the GamePad is inferior. It is actually far better and offers a new kind of gaming.
  • The cost is also a good enough reason to choose Nintendo games consoles. They are always cheaper than the PlayStations and Xboxes. Their games are cheaper. Online access is free in the Wii U and the games which will be available in the near future will cost a fraction of what Sony and Microsoft would charge; that’s to exclude preloaded and free games. Saving a hundred bucks or two hundred at the start and then saving a few hundred more in the future is certainly a treat.
