Taking a Dump (With Links)

*Sharapova's Thigh (fantastic blog name by the way) delves into the the situation by the bay this year with the San Francisco Giants. Added bonus- Lizzie McGuire, oops, I mean Hilary Duff eye candy.

*Ever notice how the best blogs have the best names? Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies is no exception, and author Tecmo got the ultimate plug yesterday as his site was mentioned on ESPN's Jim Rome is Burning. Congrats!

*Sticking with the quality blog title theme, we move onward to Awful Announcing who take a look at the NBA's money scheming sellout ways, as they will play G-E-I-C-O (I'd love to make roadkill of that f'n British accented gecko or club that ugly-ass caveman on the commercials) in place of the traditional H-O-R-S-E. No word yet on a 4-H Club lawsuit.

*Here at More Hardball (another high quality blog moniker) we're fans of long lost twins (Set 1, Set 2, Set 3), so to see our buddy at Hugging Harold Reynolds (brilliant handle!) post a picture of actor Vincent D'Onofrio and the Washington Wizards head coach brings a smile to our face.

*The World of Isaac usually has some scantily clad images of exquisite ladies on their site mixed with sports articles, but yesterday they posted a video of a kid returning from the dentist where he was given drugs...lil' dude is higher than Michael Jackson's falsetto.

*If you were lucky enough to catch any of the Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl V on Super Sunday then you likely realized the sweet leathery voice of Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas. We Should Be GM's wondered what the hell the rest of the Phils broadcasting team did during the Super Bowl and was astonished with their findings. Larry Andersen and ShamWow!, that's all I've got to say.

*The Big Lead flat out tells it like it is and busts out- Jeter should no longer be a shortstop. They reference baseball aficionado Bill James who proclaimed the Yankee captain to be the worst fielding shortstop in the game today (over the last 3 seasons in fact)...ouch! Usually I can't stand for badmouthing of Mr. Jeter, as everyone knows he's my favorite player, but the facts don't lie.

From improving your grades in school to your play on the soccer field to just kicking back and having a good time, computer games have so much to offer! In this article, we share ideas to help you find great games and rise in your gaming levels.

You should try renting a game before you buy it. You will not be able to return a game you bought once you opened it. When you rent computer games, you can check them out without having to make costly mistakes.

If you want to sell your games on the Internet, you have to describe them in as much detail as possible. This description should include what type of condition the game is in and how it plays. Anyone who purchases this from you would like to be aware of these important details. By making your description as detailed as possible, you are increasing the odds that you'll sell your game.

Play in single player mode first. If you are not doing well by yourself, you will get demolished when playing with other people. If you find the game too challenging, make a trade for something you like more. Avoid wasting your time when it comes to online gaming.

Make sure that you implement parental control settings for your children's safety. It's also wise to find out if the game is able to be played online. When it does, you should disallow kids from having access. You should also verify their friend requests and make sure they do not play excessively.

Keep the computer you're on clear and make sure everything is up-to-date. If you game often on a particular system, avoid installing too many applications. Defragging the hard drive and using ScanDisk are very helpful. This allows you to keep everything on your computer running smoothly so you don't experience any slow down.

With a game that's fairly popular it can be tempting to buy everything out there for it like expansions and upgrades right when you begin playing. This can be expensive! Try maintaining discipline. Wait until you have played through the game before purchasing additional content.

Video Games can be used to get fit. Physical motion sensing technology is spreading through the industry. Today, you can get your exercise in through certain sports-related video games like yoga. You can get in shape at home doing this.

Of course, you will have your favorites if you are a serious video game hobbyist. It's important that these are not the only types of games you play all the time, though. Try out different styles of games every now and again. Finding new genres of games can be an exciting experience.

If possible, try games out before you buy them at your local library. Most public libraries offer online games that can be checked out for free. The library usually has game titles for all different systems, so simply call ahead and see if they have the title you want.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Enjoy your gaming more after having read this article. Online Games help us escape our boring everyday lives, which we all need from time to time. Game on!
