Adidas Men’s Adisonic M Running Shoes

Everyone looking to start running has one question on their mind – Which are the best shoes to buy?

It is definitely not easy to decide, so consider yourself having come to the right place for seeking the clearest possible answer to every runner’s favorite question.

A comfortable running shoe is a shoe that fits, but finding one is not always easy.

Before you start your training regime, you need the right pair of shoes to help you succeed.

As a beginner you would want a protective and durable shoe. Something in the middle range, between super-light minimalism to big heavy shoes.

Adidas Men’s Adisonic M strikes a good balance between cushioning and stiffness for a supportive shoe design.

PROS:

  • Looks great
  • Light weight: They are very light on your feet and great for running.
  • Value for Money: It’s hard to get a better shoe in this price range.
  • Comfortable: The air vents help your feet to stay drier and cooler.

CONS:

  • Would need to use shoe bags to prevent any stains or mildew.
  • A polish or a shiner can’t be used, instead dusting any dry dirt from the surface should be done using a clean cloth.
  • You will have to allow your pair of shoes to air and de-odorize at a regular basis, this also helps them retain their natural shape

As you would need room to move and expand a bit as you run, you wouldn’t like it to be in a shoe that has too much overlay detail (e.g. some models of Nike and even the Puma Glide ). Just mesh allows for more air flow over the top of the shoe and more freedom for the feet to move around.

The cushioning system in the rear and forefront absorbs impact shocks while running. The large inner volume of the forefront allows the foot to easily expand on impact with the ground, allowing natural impact energy absorption as the foot spreads out.

Adidas Men’s Adisonic M is of the cheapest long distance running shoes on the market, balancing light weight and glove like fit with rugged performance on the road surfaces. Buy it now on Amazon using the link below:

Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) Console with free games (Wherever applicable)

“Never lose the kid in you”. Heck, grown-ups play the ever famous PlayStation too! Gaming is the most stress buster and entertainer there ever is!

You have to own one of these to really feel the “awesomeness” of Sony gaming consoles. This 4th generation piece released by Sony is crazy with its features. If you have had the 3rd generation Sony Console (The PlayStation 3 or PS3), you would know the difference.

This contraption is what you need, to play those eye gluing, awe striking games out there like Uncharted 4, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Unity, TitanFall 2 etc.

Features of this console that are absent in PlayStation 3 are:

  • The joystick (Dualshock 4) has capacitive touch input, like that of the PS Vita.
  • Improved SixAxis motion sensing, a brightly-colored “Light Bar”.
  • Speaker on the controller.
  • At 7.4 ounces, the controller weighs less than an ounce more than the Dualshock 3 (6.74 ounces).
  • The start and select buttons are replaced by share and option keys that flank on the top of the touchpad.

NOTE: if you’re purchasing the Dualshock 4 seperately for an extra controller, it does not come with a micro-USB cable to charge. Instead you will have to use the one included with your system, buy a new one or simply charge the controllers seperately.

  • It has been confirmed via twitter that up to 4 PS4 controllers can be used at once which is surprising because that is less than what the PS3 supported.
  • The PS4 can store your games, apps, screenshots and videos with 500GB and 1TB options.
  • Perhaps one of the coolest features the PlayStation 4 possesses is the ability to link up to your PS Vita. Not only does your portable device work as a secondary player, but you’ll also be able to carry the display to the portable screen. This is nice to try out in a big house, when you’re in one room and the system’s in another. Just make sure your firmware is up to date, and then Enable Remote Play with your PS Vita device. It’s easy to link up and use.
  • If you don’t feel like paying for PlayStation Plus’ cloud-saving services, you can do the next best thing and transfer game saves to a USB stick. Simply plug it into your device and go to the Settings menu, then check on Application Saved Data Management, under Storage. You’ll see an option to copy to the USB device, and then take your game saves with you wherever you go.
  • Like the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4 can access a number of video applications, including Netflix, NHL GameCenter and Hulu Plus. However, you also have access to a number of others, including the WWE Network and Crunchyroll. Better yet, they’re all under one helpful menu on the main screen, so you don’t have to hunt around to use them.
  • Don’t feel like waiting around with your system turned on to download a 20 GB+ game? Hey, neither do we. Thankfully, there’s a stand-by mode where your games can download without wearing down your system – and the system does this with a funky orange light to boot. Simply activate Standby Mode by holding down the Home button and selecting the option.
  • Inserting disc in this console is different compared to PS3. This console slides in your disc compared to PS3, where you manually have to slide open the disc compartment to insert the disc and close it the old conventional way.

cons:

  • If You’re looking for the Super Mario 64 of next-gen. Sorry, Sony doesn’t have it.
  • If You’re looking for the Wii Remote of next-gen. Nope, Sony doesn’t have that either.
  • It doesn’t partner with your TV or offer Kinect-caliber voice recognition.

That said, if you are not the type of person looking for those tiny bit details, this is like the best gaming console you can go for.

A cool offer you get with of these products (Product description):

Sony PS4 1 TB Console with Software Outside Box Pasted – Ultimate Player Edition, comes along with Free Games: The last of US, Drive club and Infamous Second (If you are purchasing it in India)

So summarizing,

  • This product: ‘PlayStation 4 Ultimate’ player 1 TB edition is bundled with 3 free games – ‘Infamous Second’ , ‘The Last of Us’ and ‘Drive Club’
  • “”Suspend mode”” eliminates the load time on your saved game and allows you to immediately return to where you left off by pressing the power button
  • Enables the greatest game developers in the world to unlock their creativity and push the boundaries of play through a platform that is tuned specifically to their needs
  • Engage in endless personal challenges between you and your community and share your epic moments for the world to see
  • Gamers can share their epic triumphs by hitting the “”Share Button”” on the controller, scan through the last few minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game “

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PS4 signature game) – You don’t want to miss this!

You can’t find a bigger gamer than me to review this game. That said, this is one of the most memorable games I have played so far!

NOTE: If you haven’t played the previous parts of this game, I recommend playing it in the same order as follows:

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

This I say because, it helps you grow into the game, love the characters more and sort of figure out the whole story line or rather have “the dots connected” as you play the series in order it is supposed to be played in.

Uncharted 4 is the 4th part part of the Uncharted game series, which is Sony PlayStation’s signature game. There was a game each (or a part each) of Uncharted series released for every generation of PlayStation console that was released so far, and this happened to be the game for Sony PlayStation 4. Yes! You heard that right, this is exclusively for PlayStation 4 and can’t be played on any of the previous generation consoles. However, the previous games from the series can be played on this console.

It is all about the crazy adventures of the main character, whose name is Nathan Drake. A well knit story that takes you through action, puzzles, shooting, etc., almost anything out there to excite your senses!

The key features of the game are:

  • Puzzle solving for advancement in the game (like opening doors, making mechanisms work, etc.)
  • Ambush and surprise action and shooting.
  • An engaging story to keep you glued to the screen out of curiosity.
  • Memorable character dialogues. (Nathan Drake has a good sense of humor)
  • Adventure ( Treasure hunting )
  • Boat rides, Jeep rides over uneven (Mountainous) terrains etc
  • secret doors and applied physics
  • rope swings and acrobatics to jump on to a ledge etc
  • unexpected breakages, explosions, ambush etc

There is a new character introduced in this game (Not gonna spoil it for you), which is quite surprising if you played the previous games of this series before playing this game. The starting of this game is like in those typical Hollywood movies you see with the same old Uncharted game, music theme track (slightly modified) which was stuck in our minds from a very long time since the first game. In fact the whole game is pretty much like a Hollywood movie, the only difference being, you drive the main character in this game. The graphics is that good! Speaking of which, everything looks very real!

The only negativity I see with this game is, as I said earlier, this is a game released exclusively for PS4. So, you need to buy a PlayStation 4 first, to play this game. But, I am sure you won’t regret your decision. Both the console and this game really makes you come back with a positive review (as I am writing one, right now).

The ending is not… Let me not say more. It is for you to find out. Order this game using the link below:
