Bravo! Bravo! Angry Birds Transformers, legitimizing gambling for kids!

"These days mobile gaming has become just another synonym for casino."
 I want you to watch the above video and listen to how he makes it sound like the coolest thing!

Is this for real?

Seriously, I have never seen an advertisement that took some thing as heinous as gambling for children and made it look so friendly and exciting.

These days mobile gaming has become just another synonym for casino.

If this was a game for adults, you might say that the slot machine aspect is acceptable, but not in a game targeted at children. You see them glued to their ipad screens, and this would just take the cake. They're using their hard earned gems and coins to do "a little bit of investment and a little bit of luck". Where is the harm in that?

"You can always spin again" he says....

Hey kids, just spin again. It's real fun! We're training you to accept this type of reward feedback cycle. Look it's kooky professor pig. yaaay.

I'm speaking out because this type of practice needs to change. It's becoming more and more prominent in the gaming industry where coins are flashed in front of you and you're expected to follow. The danger is that it's becoming normal and expected for mobile games to have this.

There needs to be a balance and equivalent trade. The game was already pushy before this. 

Complete and utter garbage.

We need to make our voice clear that we deserve better practices in gaming. Angry Birds Transformers isn't the only one to blame. We deserve better

Yo sup peeps
those guys who are reading this
well allow me to introduce my self
I am
aka Junior Mint

how I got that nickname is a funny story
after seeing a seinfeld episode I really wanted a junior mint, but where I live, doesn't have junior mints, so I'd keep thinking of ways to get junior mints form some where, but until now I never got them...sadly
so my friends decided to call me Junior mint
until now I have never tried a junior mint.

So let me tell you what this blog is going to be about.
I will comment on various technologies and games
and maybe try and review some. I think there are a lot of crappy reviews of games out there that aren't honest and aren't even critical enough. after reading a review I'm still wondering if I should buy this game or not.

So I'm going to give some reviews of games I've played and save you the trouble of thinking of buying it or not. now you might think...why should I trust this guy?
well i'll be very honest of the rev…

Transformers Movies Are Way More Interesting When You See Optimus Prime As A Villain!

"When you hear Optimus respond to Ironhide in the first movie "Ironhide, you know we don't harm humans , what is with you ?" Now you know why, it's because he wants to keep all able slaves alive."

It's general information that the Autobots are the heroic ones, the protagonists, the saviors, the "good guys". Well I'm here to tell you that you could be getting it all wrong.

"What are you talking about Bud? Megatron is the bad guy, it says so on the box."
"The Decepticons are evil, they want to kill people"
Are you sure about that?

For this article I'm looking at the Michael Bay Transformers Movies 1, 2, 3, 4.

We start this movie hearing about the "Allspark", how it is magical and brought life to Cybertron and eventually war. As the audience we believe what Optimus is saying in the intro. Even when he sees Sam , he tells him the following:
