CTS Nerd Alert Pokemon X And Y Review Video Games In The News Friday October 4th 2013

Let the Holiday shopping season officially begin!  (According to us here at Chicago Toy Shop, It’s always online shopping season!)  Pokemon fans are excited as ever as to get their Nerdy little paws  on Pokemon X And Y this fall & winter.

The evolution of this 15 year RPG is truly impressive.   The online social feature (With Wi-Fi) are great, Combo that with updated 3D graphics and a much smoother & faster game-play and we have another successful Pokemon video game launch!  The creators and development team did a wonderful job in creating another Pokemon masterpiece.

Like most RPG video games Pokemon X and Y can be intimidating, Have no fear … Chicago Toy Shop is here!  The element-based combat style is easy to get used to whether you’re a Noob or Veteran.  With the updated game speed you’ll be able to dive into the important stuff much quicker than before.  Sitting in the lobbies & tedious menu’s screens are now a thing of the past.  In the first hour or so you should be able to get your first gym badge and even some pretty bad-ass roller skates.

The updates to Mega Evolutions will certainly change the style of combat fighting.  These special transformations will make Pokemon battles much more strategic and random.  There are limitations on the Mega Evolution like before; You can only summon it once per battle and not everyone character has this ability.

The skills of the Pokemon characters have evolved to bring more variety and options straight to the battle field.  The online trading & training capabilities is what set this game apart from the rest.   You’ll need to play the game to experience the hidden gem behind the online training/trading Pokemon world, So stop reading this blog and start playing some Pokemon!!

Mine Craft Top 10 Tricks And Hints To Becoming A Pro + Mine Craft New Update For The xBox 360

The new Mine Craft update for the xBox 360 is officially live!  Million’s of  ‘Gamers’ have downloaded Mine Craft for the Xbox 360 and for damn good reason!  We ourselves are huge fans; First joining the massive online world about 9 months ago.  New players continue to join every second and it’s pretty easy to see why … Mine Craft purely dominates.

We continue to do our Mine Craft research thanks to all the dedicated nerds & online resources out there.  Our main goal is to help you stay alive – But we also want you to know some of the coolest ways to stay alive along with mini tips & hints that might just change the way you look at how you play Mine Craft.

Mine Craft Xbox 360 News & Updates

(Remember: There is no wrong way to play Mine Craft and that’s what makes it so unique & perfect for so many people … It’s your own world: Your own way!)

Now for some juicy tips & tricks to help keep you alive longer.

First let’s start with the power of torches.  I know it seems simple, but don’t be afraid to sprinkle!  This translates to spread your torches out as you travel so you don’t get lost or get eaten by creepers and spiders when you don’t have to.  (Burn some wood on wood action to produce charcoal for the torches; Wood & wood-planks create the torch stick handle.)

Once you’ve mastered the basics of the torch there are a few quick tips that can make your life last longer & more efficient.

1.) Use torches to your advantage | Spread them more often than not.

2.) Torches can be used to build on top of to save time & resources while forcing you to use more light in your structures (Make sure you have the right angle and you can create some stunning visuals)

3.) Under water survival. Place one on a block & it will create a temporary air bubble that you can refill your oxygen with long enough to allow you to surface in time.

4.) Chuck a torch at the bottom of a sand stack or gravel and watch it crumble! Easy and quick if you want to destroy some previously built stairs or secret entrances or exits.

5.) Sings and ladders can help stop water and lava in a hurry!  If you have the guts; This will allow you to explore with underwater houses & lava layers!

6.) One lava bucket can fuel a furnace for 1,000 seconds & can cook 1,000 items in a furnace.  (Basically anything made out of wood such as the jukebox, bookshelves, chests, & trap doors to fuel the furnace as well)

7.) Throughout survival mode you’ll need to learn the fastest way to break down a resource.  Here’s a few helpful hints on items you may come across on the regular -> Swords break melons & Cacti the best | Axes are best for ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ & lastly don’t forget to dig dirt with a shovel; Don’t waste your better tools on DIRT!

8.) Flower Boat Pots: Plant a flower first, Then a wooden boat directly on top of it.  The boat will sink into the ground & become a nice planter.  (Mainly a visual advantage; But under the right circumstance you can plant a tree or garden anywhere with one square of dirt for a quick boost)

9.) Set your spawn. Make yourself a nice bed in order to stay alive & save your spawn spot.  3 wool pieces and 3 wooden planks is all you need to complete your bed structure.  Sleep tight … Don’t let the spiders & creepers bite!!

10.) Worst case; Always have a torch!!  Bring at least (1) torch with you and you can simply dig down 3 squares and your safe.  Put a torch down there or you might just scare yourself into popping back out into the world prematurely.  (It takes a long time to make the clock; But if you can create the Mine Craft time clock it will make your day & night trips way more safe & efficient in the long run.

These sneaky helpful tips & tricks should help get you started; Of course don’t be an ignorant ‘Noob’ … There are still plenty of new updates and ways to accomplish different goals throughout the game.

Have some tips of your own you didn’t see in the article?

Please let us know | We’d love to hear from true Mine Craft pro’s and fans everywhere!!

Shark Tank Friday’s On ABC Helps To Inspire and Create Million Dollar Business Opportunities For New Entrepreneurs … Do You Have Any Ideas – Products – Inventions You’d Like To Share?

It’s 4:59 Friday evening and you smell blood! All you want to do is fly out of work a few minutes early to beat the traffic as you zoom home like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and reunite with your long-lost couch that you haven’t seen in over 12 hours!  For a lot of hard-working adults; The daily grind & weekly paycheck is enough to keep them satisfied and quench their thirst.  After all – “Thank Goodness It’s Friday”

Shark Tank On ABC Friday's

Shark Tank Friday On ABC

Then there are us Sharks, We tend to-day dream from time to time and think a bit more outside the box than most. After all  – “Thank Goodness It’s Shark-Tank Friday!”

We race home to sit down on our computers & check if that website domain name is still available or if we can trademark the ingenious Fortune 500 company/Brand name we created and took notes on during our lunch break.  The possibilities are infinite and our passion & hunger for major success is most definitely imminent.

We are big fans of everyone on the ‘ABC’s Shark-Tank Panel’ and have found a lot of their expert thoughts & opinions are pretty spot on and helpful!

If you’d like to learn more about the Sharks and some of their best quotes; Be sure to check out the ABC.Com Shark Tank Tips article online.

In today’s global economy the fierce competition requires most entrepreneurs to have more than just one pretty good idea or product to truly make a major dent in the business world and most importantly – Their bank accounts.  As Mark Cuban often paraphrases on the show … “You’ve proven you can handle imitators and have shown us overall sustainability for your product(s); A very good first step in creating a successful business”

You can also follow them on Twitter as they live ‘Tweet’ & interact with some of their most die-hard Shark-tank fans during the show.

We personally suggest following some of the companies that appear on Shark-tank as well. The companies represented are usually up & coming start-up businesses that will often offer great deals & discounts online in order to have a successful early launch & get their name heard & seen online as much as possible.  We don’t have the official statistics in front of us – But we’d guess it’s about a 25% chance that your pitch could reel in a real life Shark if you can get your business on the show!

If you could make a deal with ONLY (1) Shark – Who would it be?

The Star Wars Franchise Looks To Disney and Others To Help Revive The Star Wars Movies – Star Wars Action Figures – Star Wars Video Games – Plus Everything Else In Between!

Star Wars has one of the most influential and powerful brand names in the world.  The global phenomenon that is Star Wars has dove into the collector universe heard first time and time again with the same overall result: Major Success!

Star Wars Shadows of the Empire Nintendo 64 Video Game

Star Wars Classic N64 Video Game

Personally, One $4 Billion dollar deal is enough proof for us. According to an online statement giving by Star Wars creator George Lucas in an NBC News Online Article, he was pretty cool, calm and collected when he was quoted saying: “It’s now time for me to pass ‘Star Wars’ on to a new generation of filmmakers.”  Thank you Mr. Lucas, from all of us here at ChicagoToyShop.Com & many other die-hard Star Wars fans around the world.

Disney has been rumored to be interested in trying to acquire the entire Star Wars franchise for a while now.  The Star Wars franchise as a whole continues to add bright minds to help reinvent their current image without losing the already established millions of fans that helped make Star Wars collectibles some of the most sought after online treasures known to man.

Chances are you’ve seen a Star Wars Movie, played with a Star Wars Action Figure, challenged yourself with some Star Wars Lego as a child, Or perhaps you recently bought a piece of Star Wars History on eBay.Com.

For those looking to satisfy more than one Star Wars itch at once – We have to suggest renting or buying Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars – For the xBox 360 or Nintendo Wii.

We have been playing it ourselves on the xBox 360 for about 2-3 days now and give it a solid 8.5/10 overall rating in categories such as: overall game play, visuals, story and re-play value just to name a few.  The ability to play with together with friends and family makes this a great game for both kids and adults to enjoy for years to come.

As of now, the next Star Wars Movie is set to launch first in 2015.  Although the original Star Wars films are all fantastic for the most part – We are overjoyed with the chance for them to change it up a bit and satisfy our reckless needs for new Star Wars characters, weapons, technology, answers and a whole lot more crazy nerd ideas we personally can’t even think of.

As a team we are at the edge of our seats with Star Wars mania, anticipation and optimism for what Disney and J.J. Abrams will bring to the ‘Star Wars Table’ in the very near future! Bonus: Star Wars “Nerd Knowledge”
