Fun from the Past: Top 5 Childhood Fads Making A Comeback


By Hazel-Lovely Saunders

“Gotta catch ‘em all!” A slogan that has been sung or said multiple times since the wake of Pokémon Go.

Pokémon Go, A location-based augmented reality game that lets you capture, battle and train fictional monsters called “Pokémon.”

The world is heavily focused on the game due to it bringing a classic childhood fad back. Since Pokémon Go a lot of other games and toys have either never left so kids now can enjoy them now or resurfaced just like Pokémon.

But is Pokémon go just merely just a passing trend? Are people just wanting to capture all the creatures forget about the “hype” once the fad is over? Already a Pokémon Go player has caught all the Pokémon available in the U.S. and is traveling to other countries to capture region-specific creatures and the infamous Ditto.

Let’s walk down memory lane shall we? Read below about some throwback games and toys that should be back.

1. BeybladesP3


The toys that were released in the early 2000’s which came with a ‘launcher’-a device to spin the tops in a plastic arena called Beystadium. It is also the name of a Japanese manga and soon became a not so successful TV show. These spinning tops gave kids the opportunity to battle in real life unlike Pokémon or Digimon.

2. Digimon



Digimon short for “Digital Monsters” soon came out after Pokémon in the early 2000’s, but with their concept focused on digital monsters living in a “Digital World,” a parallel universe. Just like Pokémon, the franchise had a TV show, movies, manga, toys and video games.

With the Digimon device you had to take care of your digimon, made sure it ate, stay healthy, clean up after it and battle. Seems like Digimon may be better than Pokémon.

3. Beanie BabiesP6


The popularity of these “beans” stuffed animal became a worldwide phenomenon when it launched the nine original Beanie Babies. The franchise was made by Ty Warner Inc., which he only created a limited number of each Beanie Baby.

You can see on eBay that some Beanie Babies are being sold for thousands of dollars. For example, the 1997 Princess Diana Beanie Baby is listed for $428,400 on eBay with 132 buyers watching the product before making an offer.

4. FurbyP5


The Furby toys that resemble an owl-like creature are still trending but took it up a notch by having LCD eyes. Back in 1998 people went crazy collecting the different kinds of Furbies that launched during that holiday season. The sale price went from $35 to about $100 on limited edition Furbies.

They did make a revival in 2005 and 2012. The latest Furby was Furby Connect, which uses Bluetooth Smart Technology to sync with compatible devices to command phrases, music and videos. Also to be updated with technology there Furbies can be synced with the Furby app on smartphone devices to play other games. Retail value: $99.

5. RazorP8


The fun yet can be dangerous compact folding kick scooter made its way in 2000. The original Razor scooter launched  and sold more than 5 million within six months. Razor scooters are still in style for kids with new upgrades like the new electric scooters and different versions of the original A Razor scooter.

Make sure to always wear a helmet and any additional safety guards.

4 Things to Expect From Nintendo’s New Console


So Nintendo has been teasing us for a while now by keeping the details of their new console, the NX, pretty much confidential. Finally, we’ve gotten more of an idea of what to expect in the NX thanks to a number of sources that have confirmed details to Eurogamer.

  1. It’s a totally new concept – The NX is going to be pretty different than what we’ve seen from Nintendo in the past. This new console will be both a handheld and a console you can play on your TV. Basically, the NX as a whole will work as a handheld console that has its own display, which doesn’t sound too far out there – Nintendo has always been known for handheld consoles. Well, what sets it apart is the two controller sections on the side, that can either be attached or detached as needed.

  2. It’s basically 2 consoles – Nintendo knows that sometimes you get home and want to play on the big screen, and the NX totally reflects that. Yup, you can connect the console directly to your TV through the dock station. So it’s kind of like 2-consoles-in-1.
  3. It’s going back to cartridges – Physical media will be in the form of cartridges instead of discs, although we’re pretty sure that you’ll still have the option of digital downloads. Sources have also shut down the rumors that the system will run on Android. Instead, we’re expecting the NX to run on a totally new operating system from Nintendo.
  4. It’ll be very different from Nintendo’s previous consoles – Nintendo won’t confirm everything until the console’s unveiling, which is expected to be this September. However, one thing that Nintendo has made apparent is that this will be much different than the Wii and Wii U. Nintendo president, Tatsumi Kimishima stated, “It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.”


Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see a new console from Nintendo and the secrecy that has been behind it is only building up the suspense.

How Virtual Reality Took Over E3 This Year

By: Kassidy Coleman

While the video game industry isn’t entirely ditching traditional games, we definitely saw a whole lot of virtual reality at E3 2016. It’s not surprising that we’re seeing more VR – it’s fun, interactive, and most importantly, new. It’s safe to say that VR isn’t going away anytime soon. Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing about virtual reality, because here’s some of the big VR news from E3 2016.

Many big-name games will be available (or some exclusive to) VR – Bethesda Softworks announced that we’ll be able to play Fallout 4 and Doom on the HTC Vive. Other big name games that’ll be appearing for VR: Resident Evil 7, Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, Batman Arkham VR, Final Fantasy XV VR Experience, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew. The fact that these big name games are going the virtual reality route shows that we can definitely expect more games to start showing up on virtual reality.

Alienware developed a virtual reality backpack –  It may look ultra-geeky, but it is a pretty practical solution for all those annoying cables and wires needed while wearing a VR headset. It’s not yet available for sale, and might not ever be, but they still showed it off at E3.  Seriously, if you want to wear the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you have to be connected to USB, HDMI, and basically a desktop computer just to use it. Alienware’s backpack PC makes it so VR is more portable (at least as portable as it can be right now).

PlayStation finally gave us a release date for PlayStation VR – On Monday, Sony announced that their PlayStation VR headset will be available for sale on October 13 for $399. Games that will be available on PlayStation VR are Resident Evil 7, Batman Arkham VR, and Final Fantasy XV. We’re most excited to play Batman Arkam VR because they have you play as actual Batman. The best thing about this VR headset is it will be compatible with existing PlayStation 4 consoles and Move controllers.

We’re excited for virtual reality to be mainstream for video games, but think that the headsets need to be cheaper before that actually happens. Pretty much expect more games to start being available in VR.

The Game You Can Play Anywhere

App Review

If you enjoy playing mobile or PC-based games that actually involve some strategy, then you are going to love Total War Battles: Kingdom. The Total War franchise has been around for 16 years but this is the on-the-go version you have been waiting for.

We’ll get into the game play, but the major difference with this version is that you can hand off from one device to another and never lose progress. So that means if you are on your computer but have to hit the road, that doesn’t mean you have to stop playing. All you have to do is jump on your phone or tablet and keep enjoying the game. Pretty sick. Now let’s talk gameplay. It is a strategy game with tactical battles so you want to build a large, strong army. The battles are fought in real time against either the computer or real players from around the world. Now don’t worry, this game is not all about the battle. It is also about pure strategy. You need to build your own kingdom. Manipulate the land for special advantages like damming a river to make a lake then channeling the river so it irrigates your crops. The game even simulates real nature effects like water freezing in the Winter or forests growing in Spring. There is really no limit. The game itself received Editor’s Choice in the Apple Store and Best New Game in Google Play. So far it has been released world-wide in English, Spanish, French, and German.

Are you ready to start enjoying this game? You can download Total War Battles: Kingdom for free oniPad, iPhone, Android, PC or Mac by heading to your respective app store today.
