I made another video where I bring a Stryfe into the world, and then deck it out in tons of extra gear. Enjoy. 😉

Atlas 250, Double the Goodness

Hey guys, so I just finished editing my Atlas Double Pack Unboxing. It’s really similar to the Single unboxing, but I think it’s still cool. If you like the Atlas or are interested in the unique ammo type, The double pack would be great for one on one battles with your friends, or carrying two single shot pistols like some sort of future pirate! :] The goggles are also really, really cool. I hope you enjoy, and don’t worry, plenty of non-unboxing stuff is on the way.

Cheers!

Vapor Atlas 250 Unboxing

Happy Halloween everyone! Here’s the latest video I’ve been working on; Vapor sent me this blaster a few weeks ago, but because of school I’ve just gotten around to it. Sorry guys! As for the blaster itself, I really like it! A lot! The Atlas 250 feels ergonomic in my hand, it looks awesome, and fires little balls of jelly at your friend 60 feet away! It’s sort of like a paintball pistol, but because the gelatin capsules it fires just evaporate away, ther’s no cleanup at all. Watch the video below for my unboxing and review of the Atlas 250.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Unboxing

For those of you who haven’t gotten yourself a Rampage yet, and for those who haven’t seen an unboxing… umm, I made one! Hopefully the below video will stand out as a bit higher quality than what you may have come to expect from unboxings. I hope you enjoy and would love any feedback, so tell me watcha think!

As a side note, if you haven’t yet heard, this video is on my new main YouTube channel. I don’t post everything on this blog so subscribe if you want to see everything I’m up to! ;]

The New N-Strike Elite 18-Dart Quick Reload Clip

Hello all! This is a quick opinion-seeking post. As many of you know, the new Nerf 18 round clip (the one being released in the Elite line) has one solid side (on the left) and one clear side (on the right). Cool right? Well, here’s where the opinions come in. My thoughts are that the clear part would be more useful on the left side of the clip. Reason being that in a Nerf war or HvZ event, most people are right handed, and will be pocketing their blaster into their right shoulder. When they look down at their blaster, they would be seeing the left side of the clip (the solid side). So in order to use the functionality the clear side offers, the player would have to un-pocket their blaster and turn it on its side so they could see the clear section of the clip. BasicNerf tells me that this isn’t a big deal, and I trust him, but I can foresee that “let me check my ammo really quick” scenario leading to someone being either stunned or zombified!

On the bright side, any section of the clip being clear is still an improvement over the old, solid Stampede clips. And you have to admit, rather than either emptying your clip to know you’re out, or taking it out of your blaster and counting the number of darts you have left through a TINY little window, checking your remaining ammo now only takes one second. Un-pocket, flip & check, Re-pocket, done. Also, now we can get 18 round clips without buying a huge Stampede or ordering them online! That in itself is just plain awesome!

So what do you think? Is the lefty-favored aspect of the new clip offsetting to you, or does the sheer fact that you can now buy them separately and the faster ammo check feature make up for it? I’m leaning towards the positive side of the argument. Leave your own opinion in the comment section below!

The new N-Strike Elite 18 round clip will launch with the Elite blasters this August. It will include 18 rounds of Elite ammunition, and will retail for $9.99.
