Splinter Cell 2 pack for The $9.99 review

So I was at my local Fred Meyers and was looking for a "pass the time" type game on the discount rack I had heard a little about Splinter Cell and the 2 pack of Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow & Stealth Action Redefined was only $9.99 The Gamer girl behind the counter said it wasn't worth the full price but it was probably worth the only $10 price. So far I have to agree with her. The Game mechanics are a bit stiff and it is not very engrossing I really can't get past the fact that I can't pick up bullets or guns from people I've killed or the fact that I sometimes just have to stumble across things I can interact with, It does have some good points though and is a good time waster game I like the fact that I can quick save at any point and go right back there When you have 3 small children this is a game feature that you tend to use often and learn to appreciate immensely. the key board lay out is good and fully customizable if you don't like the factory settings. The voice of Michael Ironside lends a quality to this game it would not otherwise have. I Haven't started the second game yet and I wonder if there will be any changes. I know this is an old game but I figure there are so many games out there that there have got to be people like me that like to occasionally pick up older titles that they missed and try them out. Because of the game save feature and the fact that the game is broken up into small segments during the levels this is a good game for when your wasting time or waiting for a bus Ect.. It is defiantly worth the $9.99 (Or probably cheaper if your not in Alaska.) It's by Ubisoft by the way in case this makes a difference to you.

Finally pics of the new one and an article that scared the Mt Dew outta me.

This is an Article that may make me quit drinking soda altogether I found it because I was curious about one of the ingredients in my favorite beverage.

Now I've come across information, of yet another dangerous additive that is found in the citrus flavored type sodas or drinks, such as Mountain Dew, Fresca, Fanta, and is even found in the power drinks, such as the familiar Gatorade, and that is the additive of Brominated Vegetable Oil or BVO. The real kicker in all this is that BVO has actually been banned in over 100 countries, and even the FDA considers this additive as unsafe, yet, so far, no measures have been taken to ban it's usage here in this country.

Brominated Vegetable Oil, has as it's composition the element of bromine in which, believe it or not, the vapors of bromine are considered both corrosive and other words can outrightly be considered a poisonous chemical. The chemical bromine is used for a number of products, from one of the chemicals that treat surfaces for light-sensitive photographic printing papers, as an additive for gasoline, to agricultural fumigants. At one time, bromine was even used to make sedatives, but then the FDA banned its usage around 1975, as it was found to trigger a whole host of psychiatric disorders.

Just why is BVO used in certain drinks? Supposedly, the reason Brominated Vegetable Oil used in citrus type drinks, is to stabilize the citrus oils to prevent them from separating, giving them a more unified appearance. One can always tell that Brominated Vegetable Oil has been added even if one doesn't read the ingredient label, as such drinks will have a rather murky, cloudy look to them, rather than clear. And believe it or not, many drinks containing BVO, do not include it on their labels!
Now of course, the FDA claims that BVO is used in acceptable levels that would do no harm, however, it has been proven that BVO, when consumed is stored in a person's fat cells, thus over time can accumulate. With time, if the average person consumes enough of these beverages that contain BVO, you c
an just bet, its toxic side effects will start to show up. And what are the side effects? Do you really want to know? Yes, they are that bad.

I've taken the liberty to include the list of the effects of BVO are from the Natural Thyroid Choices Website This websites primarily discusses about the soda Mountain Dew, but it can pertain to any of the drinks that contain BVO in them.

Abdominal cramps
Blurred vision
Constricted pupils
Cyanosis (skin blueness)
Heart beat malfunction
Tremors of the tongue and eyelids
Muscular cramps
Respiritory difficulty
Slow pulse
Vomiting (1)

Other possible side effects I found listed in other sources also includes birth defects, growth problems, memory loss and fatigue (2) & (3)

It actual makes me shudder to think that people are consuming beverages that contain such an additive with so many dangerous side affects. Think for instance, how many people, including children, will drink Gatorade, especially after strenuous physical or sports activity and are under the impression that this is a "wonder" drink to rehydrate and replenish one's body of vitally needed fluids, instead what they are getting is a dose of a toxic chemical.

Thankfully, I just never cared for the taste of Mountain Dew, and only once tried Gatorade and completely hated the taste. I'd much rather drink pure juices or even just plain water. I'm hoping that enough people will put pressure on the FDA to completely ban the use of BVO in any beverage, just as it's been banned in over 100 countries. Isn't our health worth it?

Gonna be a new Daddy again in a couple of hours.

I Have a 3 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. I have already them started down the path of PC gaming via sites like Fisherprice My daughter especially loves the memory type games and asks to play them by herself now When she gets a bit older her mouse work is gonna be hard for her old man to keep up with. My son loves to play the Alphabet sound games and is already learning the key board. I'm so proud. Any way I just wanted to let my D-toid family know.
