    Where do you go to buy your electronics of all shapes and sizes? I prefer to go to Micro Center. Really like the guys there. They're all pretty chill. Where do you go?

    jason.cpcr got a reaction from HowardGex in Custom Signatures!   
    Hey Guys! So I thought it was time I gave back to the community even more, and here it is. If you guys ask I will create custom sigs. for the site. I won't require payment however if you are happy with your product I'd appreciate a small amazon.com donation or for a donation to CPCR. Either way you would be helping out the site as the money for amazon would be towards me purchasing and reviewing products. So if you want examples of my work check out my deviant art at Browsing deviantART. Thanks :D

    What would you guys like to see reviewed under $50. It should be available on amazon though, and if I like it I will order it and review it for you.

    jason.cpcr got a reaction from HowardGex in CNN Counter Arguement: Gaming Makes You Feel Good   
    This is in response to CNN's article on how gaming can lead to bad grades and depression that I did for a school project. I just thought I should share my ideas with the community and bring a new perspective to this issue. The original article can be found here. Dear Editor, While reading your ideas about the effects gaming can have on children I found several inaccuracies that could very easily mislead someone to changing their own or someone they care for's lifestyle. For example, many of the effects of gaming that you consider more detrimental are incorrect. To be more precise, the quote "students who did stop their excessive gaming reduced their levels of depression, anxiety and social phobia," is full of flaws. While someone may get stuck in playing a game which could potentially lead to depression and anxiety, it doesn't because once the player is able to achieve their goal they feel a sense of happiness that is hard to surpass. It is the same feeling as when someone climbs Mount. Everest. They may face hardships and difficulties along the way, but these all subdue when the person accomplishes their goal. The second part of that statement was that social phobia also decreased as a result of participants stopping their normal gaming habits. This statement is commonly made by people who do not understand the huge extent of video games around the world. Most people who play video games are not socially awkward. In fact, most gamers tend to have better friendships as they have a common interest that will always adapt with changing times. Also, with the aid of internet VoIP (Voice over IP) software, gamers will always have a way of staying in touch with old friends compared to most non-gamers. Also, when talking about how children were diagnosed as pathological gaming they were asked "were students becoming more preoccupied with video games, did they lie about the amount of time spent playing, had schoolwork suffered, and if playing helped them escape from problems or bad feelings." These questions should not be used to define a pathological gamer. With a simple manipulation of the words these questions can be used to diagnose anyone as a pathological student. Were students more preoccupied with studying than they were with relationships? Were all kinds of relationships being damaged because of excess studying and competition? As I just demonstrated, these questions are too general to be used to diagnose anyone. The questions completely ignore the positives sides of gaming such as development of precise skills, prioritizing your duties, teamwork, and independence. The author also failed to mention in the article that many professions can benefit from video games such as surgeons who need precise and dextrose hands, or managers who need to be able to manage many different tasks at once and prioritize them. As this letter makes clear, your article is very vague and should not be used as evidence to influence someone's lifestyle choices. Please share your thoughts.

    Hey! Just wondering, how active are you on forums? How many do you follow? What are your opinions of them? Me personally, I like to be an active contributor on more united forums like this one :). I feel that this forum is very accepting of everyone and engages everyone in conversations. I follow 2, CPCR and a Head-Fi. The problem with head-fi is that I don't feel like part of a group or friends the same goes with Team Liquid. Lastly, I love forums. I have been a part of forums for a long time. Forums give people like myself an opportunity to engage in reviews, opinions and a chance to move up and contribute more by becoming and editor just like myself. I'd love to read your ideas! GLHF

    Hey guys. Just thought I'd share this tip with you. If you have an Android Device or iPhone you can download an app called App Trailers and use the Web App App Redeem to earn amazon or paypal credits. It's simple you either watch the trailers available or download the apps to gain points. Then you can redeem these points for amazon, paypal, or a variety of more giftcards. So if you'd like to try it out please use my referral code jal7141 which will automatically add 50 points to your account and also help out a fellow CPCR member. Thanks and GLHF
