Review: "Grid Autosport" - PC/PS3/Xbox 360(tested)

Reviewed by Frank for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 83/100

There are a variety of different racing games on the market for families to invest in. Grid Autosport is a solid entry on the Personal Computer, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Some in Family Friendly Gaming Nation may wonder why this franchise was not moved to the next gen home consoles. Because it does not need to yet.

The shape of a hummingbird's beak allows for a "controlled elastic snap" that allows it to snatch up flying insects in a mere fraction of a second -- with greater speed and power than could be achieved by jaw muscles alone!

"Fossils Prove Evolution."

Arguments Evolutionists should not make!

They don’t. The pervasive pattern is sudden appearance and stasis/extinction, not evolution of one kind into another. A number of evolutionary paleontologists have acknowledged this. For example: That quote about the missing fossils and The links are missing. The lack of transitional fossils drove Harvard paleontologist Dr Stephen Jay Gould to develop a theory of ‘punctuated equilibrium’ that had evolution happening in such a rapid and localized way that no fossils were left to show it had happened! Of course attention-seeking paleontologists are continually promoting this or that new fossil that shows ‘this evolved into that’. However, give the latest fashionable fossil a few years and it will be dropped as further study shows that it was hyped to the hilt by the discoverers. One has only to think of that whale of a story, of how a four-footed land animal evolved into whales/dolphins, which has been a recent poster child of evolutionists. It is fast unravelling. Also, when this happens, many of the alleged ‘homologies’ invoked as proof must be reclassified as homoplasies.

Canton's last project Lust, Drugs & Gospel, was a freemium album that saw over 20,000 free downloads, used to build a buzz and database to promote his new album - God City, USA. Canton Jones delivers another strong project with Gospel, R&B and Hip Hop naturally woven together.

Review: "Phantasy Star Portable" - Playstation Portable

Reviewed by RPG Master for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 56/100

Few role playing game franchises have fallen farther from grace than the Phantasy Star series. Ultima may have dropped off a cliff thanks to UO, and Phantasy Star followed it off the same cliff. Phantasy Star Portable tries to do the 3D action adventure role playing online experience on the Playstation Portable (PSP). Which means few other players, and technology not able to run the game properly.

By Andrew Ehrenzeller

Change happens. It’s inevitable. Some people embrace change better than others. Though it seems most of us prefer to keep the status quo and not disrupt the comfortable routine of familiarity. Not if, but when change happens we prefer it to be in smaller doses. Little did we know that everything would change for me and my wife that Friday morning. Walking out the door we didn’t have a clue what was ahead. We were the ones about to be changed.

We are working for the King every day. We’re on our jobs in the workplace, in our churches, with our families, in the studio and on the stage…Everywhere we are, we are shinning God’s light.

All over the world there is a battle going on in-between headphones; as Kingdom Workers, we intend to spread God’s truth to our culture and the youth through music-in this nation and abroad. We want to combat the lies and toxic messages that the commercial rap industry transmits to our youth on a daily basis. This is Truth Music; this is ministry.

The INSPYs Advisory Board is pleased to announce the 2014 INSPY Award Winners:

Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense:

A Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter is the quintessential definition of Christian Romantic Fiction. The writing style is in a word lovely, with perfect pacing and wonderful descriptions. Barefoot Summer played like a movie in our heads. Denise created characters with flaws and very real emotions that kept us invested in their story and engaged with each new scene. Not just with the main characters, but the other plot lines as well. While the other four novels were great reads this one climbed it’s way to the top. Barefoot Summer truly is the perfect Summer read, and for many more Summers to come.

Review: "X-Men: Destiny" - Nintendo DS

Reviewed by Sam for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 37/100

Video games have a certain shelf life. Stores need to sell off older games to make room on the shelves for newer games. X-Men Destiny was at a rock bottom price at a retail store. I was not expecting much out of this hand held video game. I knew it could become a review in the greatest video game e-magazine of all time for families.

Review: "Fable: The Journey" - Xbox 360 (Kinect)

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 49/100

Fable The Journey is a wagon trail game set in the Fable universe. Think of Fable The Journey like this - Oregon Trail if it were set in medieval times. Add in magic, monsters, fortune tellers, seers, and more. Players sit on their couch or chair to play Fable The Journey with the Kinect sensor.
