Both of which are results that we don’t like. So you’re probably thinking, “Why not get one of those armband…

    In Marvel War of Heroes many cards have an Ability. Each Ability is paired with a Usage stat, the Usage defines the likeliness of an ability activating in battle. In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

If you are sitting there thinking that you are always careful and that you would never need to keep backups, think again. To share a little story about myself, I run a few internet businesses, one of them being a content site. One late night, I was clicking away at the keyboard and was just about to finish my day with over 30 thousand words written that day. It had…

  • What Type Of Kenwood Connector Should You Use With A Kenwwod Radio

    admin
    15 Jun 2014 | 1:04 pm
    Although there are multiple types and designs of Kenwood radios out there, there are only two earpiece connectors compatible with these radios. Kenwood has been able to design their earpiece connectors in such a way that they are compatible with all their vast types of radios. A large percentage of Kenwood radios utilize the 2 pin earpiece connector. Among the most popular radios using the 2 pin earpiece connector include TK3000 and TK3300. The difference between the two-pin connector and the multi pin connector is straightforward. The former features two pins while the latter features…
  • Audio Brand?

    Have you ever been on hold for a company and listened to some music on the line. It was probably this music that kept you on hold so you did not hang up in frustration. The thing is, this music is a really important marketing aspect that many companies usually overlook. I did a quick search and noticed that On Hold Marketing has been one of the things that customers have said that they do not want to be harassed with advertisements while they are on hold. Instead, you should try and create a “brand” with your on hold music with a tone and voice that fits the brand of your entire…

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:31 am
    See all reviews of Solar: Man of the Atom (4)How often do publishers switch the sex of their hero to boost sales? Thor just recently got turned into a woman and yes, it might be disheartening — but throwing a pair of breasts on a character can certainly sell more books. Although, if the writing is good and the female voice is strong: what does it matter? Solar recently got a bit of a reboot when his daughter took over the mantle. She’s a bit of a wiseass and now facing down some very powerful aliens. Rut row, is it good? Solar: Man of the Atom #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) The best…

    See all reviews of Dream Thief: Escape (2)Dream Thief is the best new series on the stands, mostly because the pacing is so damn good.

    20 Jul 2014 | 11:47 pm
    I reviewed District 14, Season 1 on Flayrah on February 12, 2013, saying: Wow! I don’t know what’s going on, but wow! Three years have passed since Season 1. As before, the main character is the mysterious Babar-esque elephant immigrant known as Michael Elizondo, with his recently made best friend, the reckless investigative reporter Hector McKeagh the beaver. Season 2 continues the elaborate comic-art “crime noir” mystery set in an early 20th-century steampunk version of New York City populated with humans, anthropomorphic animals and flying-saucer aliens. Wow, indeed. Translation by…
  • Furry comics for September 2014 (Previews and Marvel Previews)

    The only furry comic of note to make the May 2014 bestsellers list was Guardians of the Galaxy #15 at 25, so I’ll add that this month actually sees not one, but two furry takes on War of the Worlds, and I’m excited about both of them. Which will be the best (or will Alan Moore’s Dr. Moreau vs. Martians still be the best furry War of the Worlds take)? See also: July 2014, August 2014 read more

  • Teen Wolf Fans are Skeptical About Joining “The Collective”

    Undie Girl
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:53 am
    MTV just launched their latest effort to engage (or exploit, depending on who you ask) fandom. Described by Mashable as “a new virtual clubhouse”, The Collective is “a curated space for ‘Teen Wolf’ fans to share and be recognised for their unique content”. While some of the fandom were excited by MTV’s continued effort to engage with its audience, there were just as many (if not more) fans that are skeptical about the site. Panic and misinformation spread like wildfire in fandom so it’s worth while taking a closer look at The Collective to find…
  • Teen Wolf 4×5 Review: I.E.D.

    Farid-ul-Haq
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:40 am
    This week’s episode of Teen Wolf: “I.E.D.”, had a lot of revelations; however, not all of them were as surprising as I think the writers wanted them to be. Meredith, made an appearance, and Lydia found the second part of the dead pool list. I’ve missed the awkward Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) this season, the one whose mind would fly off to the mystery at hand even when making out with a girl at a party. That’s why seeing him going back to his investigative ways felt refreshing. That’s the Stiles I like and am familiar with. Yes, he has been focused on Malia (Shelly Hennig)…
  • The Leftovers 1×4 Review: B.J. and the A.C.

    Tara Lynne
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:23 am
    Honestly, after last night’s episode of The Leftovers, I’m not sure what to say other than: “I don’t know what to make of this show anymore.” Of course, I have to admit that part of the issue likely stems from the fact that I ignored my better judgment and read the book. It was actually somewhat disappointing, too, though normally I would say that could bode well for the show. I know people usually insist that “the book is always better” but I don’t believe that’s actually always the case, and upon finishing the novel my first thought was,…
  • Revisiting The Deathly Hallows After 7 Years

    21 Jul 2014 | 11:02 am
    Seven years ago today, we said goodbye to Harry Potter. Well, not really. We still had three more films to look forward to and there was always fanfiction, fanart, and the recent news that there would be a Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios in Florida. It seemed impossible to imagine a world without Harry, Ron, and Hermione. It seemed even more impossible that 15 million of us were holding (for all we knew) the last novel by J.K. Rowling and we were about to visit Hogwarts for the last time. But we were. If you were anything like me, you got a hold of your own precious copy of Harry…
  • Why We Want A Bisexual Constantine

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:19 pm
    Ever since news came out that we might not be getting a bisexual Constantine I’ve been getting into arguments with people about why it matters.  The arguments tend to be the same ones repeated over and over again and, quite frankly, it’s tiring having to repeat myself.  Since the same arguments come up over and over again I’ve had to force myself and step back and consider that maybe people just don’t understand.  While some people may be intentionally malicious, perhaps a lot of people just don’t know what it’s like to not have their sexuality addressed…

  • Fangirl's 1 Year Anniversary Contest

    18 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    Hi Everyone,One year ago today I decided to start a blog. I started a blog previously, Morbid Moments, but it was scoped too small and I could not expand. I decided to write about all the things I enjoy like graphic novels, graphic tees, video games, movies, books, television shows, etc. I thought it would be something small to do but I was surprised at how big it became. I understood the basics of promoting via Social Media but then I started to really push and understand the large community on Google Plus. I made the Google Plus page for Fangirl Review a few months later. I purchased the…

  • Britain Decriminalizes Video Game Piracy

    Azure Knight
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:40 am
    The British government has decriminalised online video game, music and movie piracy, scrapping fuller punishment plans after branding them unworkable. Starting in 2015, persistent file-sharers will be sent four warning letters explaining their actions are illegal, but if the notes are ignored no further action will be taken. The scheme, named the Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme (VCAP), is the result of years of talks between ISPs, British politicians and the movie and music industries.

    Back in March, fan favorite actor Dwayne Johnson laid out that he and Warner Bros. had been in discussions for a long time about what DC Comics character he could play on the big screen. At the time, it seemed like it could be Lobo or potentially the villain Black Adam, but now in an interview with Total Film, Johnson not only confirms that he'll be playing a character but appears to say he's playing Shazam.
