To most people sneakers don’t mean anything but things you put your feet in. But to some people they mean much more. I wouldn’t hesitate to spend $250 on a pair of sneakers, but some people consider that crazy. To me and other sneakerheads out there, it would be worth every penny. The reason why I got into this craze is that it makes you feel elite. To me it is like getting a fancy new car. Everyone notices and immediately thinks that this person has class. Most of the time I judge people just by what kicks they have. Although collecting shoes is expensive, it is a fun hobby. The sneaker that got me into shoes were the Lebron 9 Breds. When I wore them I felt amazing. Even though they don’t do anything, you feel like you have purpose. I knew I needed more. The issue was, and still is, convincing my parents to let me buy them. For some reason, they feel sneakers are a waste of money, and I’ll always be interested in getting the next new pair. Although they are right about the later, to me sneakers are everything. It’s a sign of class, personality, and style. Whenever I buy shoes it comes right of my own pocket, so I don’t see why they would have an issue about it.
Shoes are not worth their price tags, but how much they mean to you. Most sneakerheads have a “Holy Grail” pair of sneakers, that they would give an arm and a leg for. Personally, mine would have to be the Galaxy Foamposites, but those are pretty much unattainable unless you are willing to pay $800. The main issue in the sneaker game is the crazy resale prices. If you aren’t willing to camp for a pair of sneakers, you will only be able to get them for double the price at a third party store. Sneakers mean a lot to me and lots of sneakerheads around the world.
As most gaming enthusiasts know, Call of Duty Ghosts will be coming out November 5, 2013 for the new generation of consoles. This will be the tenth installment of the multi-million dollar franchise and as many people agree, the series is growing stale. It seems like after Modern Warfare 2 that there seems to be a cycle players go through. The first three months every is saying the game is the best, the next three months the game gets boring, but everyone still plays it, the next three months everyone goes back to playing the game released before it saying it was much better, and then the last few months everyone gets pumped for the new COD that everyone forgets about the old COD. What COD Ghosts needs to do to keep players into it is something we’ve been asking for a long time. They need to run dedicated servers for each game mode. This reduces lag to almost nothing, which means if you don’t pull host you’ll have just as good as a connection as the person who did pull host. If Infinity Ward and Activision put as much time into this as we assume, it will revolutionize the way we play video games.
The Xbox One was announced on May 21, 2013. This console was made to revolutionize the way you play video games. It has an 8-core CPU, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and 500 gigabytes storage, this console is taking a leap to the future. With an entirely redesigned look for everything (Xbox, controller, and Kinect), it is going to put the PS4 in a bad position going into E3 this summer. All eyes are going to be on Microsoft’s presentation instead of Sony’s because their presentation in February was so bad that they didn’t even show the console. I think that the Xbox franchise is going to greatly expand because of how cool this console is. Although they only gave the public a tidbit of information, E3 will certainly shed some light on how amazing this console is going to be. Although pricing and the release is unknown, it is rumored to be $400 and release this holiday season.
