If your looking for a fun, simple racer with awesome graphics, then Reckless Racing HD might be for you. Playing this game reminds you of many of the classic games on the original Nintendo, or NES. The premise is simple; beat other racers to win the championship.
The game is played with an overhead isometric view. There are several different control options, but I enjoy the default which is gas and break on the far right and left and right turn arrow on the left, the control is spot on too.
Starting off with the game you get a brief tutorial which also allows you to try out the different controls in real-time. Just tap the one you want to try while playing and you are good to go. Next, you can complete in a championship and more. There are three different classes to choose from; bronze, silver and gold. I personally had no challenge at all on bronze, so I bumped it up right to gold and had a blast. As you race there are obstacles to avoid, but the biggest challenge is just staying on the road! The game has you racing laps on dirt, gravel and paved roads and each feels succinctly different.
There are a few obstacles to watch out for while you race like cans, barrels and boxes. But what is great is that if you are a slick enough driver, you can discover nice shortcuts to help you through the level. The 8 tracks had me wanting a little more levels, though if you place first in the track you unlock the reverse course. I did find the three game modes (race, hot lap and delivery) to be fun as well.
The bonus with this game is with the multiplayer. You get 4 player racing online with Reckless Racing and it adds a whole other level racing with real people. You have leader boards and can save ghosts too. The only real issue I had with the multiplayer aspect is that you don’t know if people are in the middle of a race till you enter their game. If they are racing, you have to wait till the race is over to join. I wish there was a way to see what games were already racing so you could find a game that much easier, or a quick match might work too.
Overall Reckless Racing HD is a blast to play, but is just shy of total greatness due to a few nicks here and there. However, I am sure EA will have new levels and cars with downloadable content soon.
I’m sure you are as familiar with Facebook as the rest of the world is! Through the years, you may have noticed little advertisements on your “Home” page. Chances are you’ve “Liked” one of these advertisements. This leads to updates of whatever you liked. Seeing several updates isn’t too bad because of Facebook’s minimalist approach render them inconsequential. That’s why it’s a small wonder why Facebook Ads Marketing has become such an effective method in promoting products and services.
Setting up a Facebook advert is very easy. Once you’ve clicked on the “Create an Ad” option normally seen on the right side bar of the page, you only have to fill up the empty fields with the corresponding information – Destination URL, Title (25 characters max), Body Text (135 characters max) and Image (optional). Of course, it goes without saying that what you put in there could make or break your business. If by chance you’re at a loss on what to do, you can refer to the ‘Design your advert FAQ’ link found on the upper right portion of the ‘Create an Ad’ page.
Ads need to have a destination URL (a website, Facebook page, or a landing page) that Facebook users can go to in order to learn more about your products and services. The title should easily give viewers an idea of what your products are about. What you write for the body text needs to be concise and direct to the point. Viewers of the ad can easily lose interest if you use too many unnecessary words. Lastly, the image of the ad should be noticeable and indicative of your products and services.
So how do you put Facebook Ads to good use? This is done by bidding on keywords that are relevant to your ad’s niche. You can choose between two methods: Cost Per Click (CPC) and Cost Per Thousand Impressions (CPM). The CPC mode charges you for every instance your ad is clicked on by any Facebook user, whereas the CPM mode does so for every 1,000 ad views. Both of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. What ever mode you choose, make sure that it corresponds to your budget and campaign goals. With the use of preferences set up by Facebook users in creating their accounts, advertisers can configure the ad’s options to target the intended demographic.
These ads are administered on a daily basis using a specific budget that you are required to provide a value for. There’s a maximum daily budget, so there’s no need to worry about overspending. Facebook users amount to 500 million, so the potential in massive customer acquisition is quite high, provided that you play your cards right.
In spending for ads, you can use a Visa, Mastercard, or a PayPal account. You also need to regularly use Facebook Insights – an online tool that allows Facebook marketers to see the proceeds of the advertising campaign and in turn, make the necessary tweaks and adjustments to steer the campaign in the right direction.
In a final analysis, success in Facebook marketing all boils down to using all the necessary tools from Facebook and being aware of the playing field.

For those of you who watch, love and enjoy NBC’s hit show “The Office,” Steve Carell announced several months ago that Season 7 (this season) will be the last for him. Now, this necessarily doesn’t mean that this season will be the final season. But, with one of the biggest names leaving the show, will it continue to succeed? My prediction is that the show will last for one…maybe two extra seasons.
E-Online reports this will be the actors last season. You can read this article here:
Why do stars tend to leave these hit shows? I know they don’t want to be tied down to a series that is running out of ideas. But, from my perspective…once a show establishes characters can’t the show go on for 10-11 seasons? Friends did it! It will be sad to see Michael Scott leave the show, but I’m a Steve Carell fan. So, I wish him the best!!!
Here are some funny Michael Scott moments from the show!

South Park is the most controversial show in recent memory. Now the show is returning for an EPIC 15h Season! The show normally follows current events and mocks them in some way. Most notably last year was the Tiger Woods scandal. The show has won several critically acclaimed awards including Best TV Series. The show has a loyal fan base and many expect it to continue that way.
The show has such an array of characters and you have to low each and every one of them. That is if you’re a fan of the show! The best character on the show has to be Stan’s Dad, Randy Marsh. Randy is the parent who tries to fit in with the children while making obscene examples of what he thinks is ‘good’ parenting.
For those of you mature enough to enjoy a GREAT show. I recomend you start watching on the 6th!
