Cannon PowerShot ELPH 300HS

Looking for a good camera to buy as a gift for someone? We can’t help you with that, what we can do is help you find an amazing camera! It may be for you, a gift, or whatever, but this camera is quite impressive! I have used this camera for about five months now and I honestly have to admit that the quality is second to none and the video shooting is true HD meaning that it seriously looks great! I bought this camera because I needed a good camera to make YouTube videos with and it helps that it is not only a superb camera but also a very impressive video camera!

There are three colors in the 300HS version, and I went with red. When you see a red camera it is unmistakable that it is a Cannon PowerShot! The color is vibrant and the texture is perfect for holding. The only complaint that I have is my Micro SDHC memory card is sometimes not readable, but this is easily fixed by turning the camera off then back on. I am almost certain that this is due to the memory card itself and not the camera, either way it is a small price to pay for the quality that this camera outputs! Oh, and just in case you are wondering, this is the camera that many YouTubers use such as CTFxC and other prominent video bloggers (for those of you interested in making YouTube videos).

Arrested Development Returns As Netflix Exclusive

The much loved comedy, Arrested Development, has taken a leave of absence after it’s previous cancelation. For years fans of the short lived series hoped and rumored a return for the Bluth Family. It has been officially announced in a press release that Arrested Development will be making it’s return to your home sometimes in early 2013. The only new quirk about the show is that it will only be available as a Netflix exclusive. Netflix has been pondering over exclusive content for some time now and has even begun filming a few series that only they will have, but this has come as a surprise to most everyone. While some fans rejoice, others fear that Netflix will be stingy with the rights to the show and deter the newly planned season from ever seeing DVD format. The future of the show is still under wraps, and not much more has been announced in regards to the new season or if Netflix will allow it to be sold as a DVD after it debutes, but one thing is for sure, this could mean many more new subscribers for Netflix, just for the return of Arrested Development!

Should You Buy Minecraft?

Minecraft developer Marcus Persson and a couple people from TigSource are the core people behind this cheaply made indie game. Developer Persson quit his job as a game developer to make indie games and this was what came out of it. This game has a vast amount of open space and is one of the most unique games I have played. Not like most games Minecraft’s main objective is to create and design your own home and create unique places and fight off enemies. This game is still in Beta so it isn’t fully finished but for game not fully finished it is really good.

The creative style of the game is the most terrific part because you’re able to make environments that are straight from your imagination. You can create villages your own city, caves, and I have even seen people build huge towers just to blow them up. This game is just to show off your imagination and create your own world to adventure through. The game in my mind could be a little better and allow you to have people everywhere and be able to not just be a lone on this world.

Still the game is in BETA and won’t be done for a few years, it has been in the process since 2010. Many people would agree that a game that is perfected turns out to be perfect. Many games have been half done and know one wants to play them, a game takes every little detail into consideration. A great game isn’t just a story or how many things you can kill, it’s about what is fun. I consider Minecraft extremely fun and addictive, I don’t know what it is about this game that makes me want to pick it up every time. I give this game a high replay value and a great time consumer. You can go to the main website and start playing now buy purchasing the game or trying out the classic version, for free. So go out and enjoy the world of Minecraft.

Taylor Swift Is Ours

If there is one person who knows how to make an impression, that person would be Taylor Swift. After coming out with her latest album everyone suspected that we wouldn’t hear anything else from her with the exception of a few singles here and there and television and concert appearances. We know another album is inevitable, but that would take some time, especially with Taylor, she puts her heart and soul into her meaningful lyrics. She recently surprised everyone with a few singles that are amazing and possibly better than a few on the actual album! One song in particular deserves recognition, that song is “Ours”.

In the song “Ours”, Taylor gives the listener a simple tune, that is quite possibly the most catchy thing we’ve listened to in weeks, and sings some lyrics with meaning that no doubt relates to her life somehow but can be transfered to the lives of the listeners. Taylor has showed us before how relatable she is, and this song is no exception. While the color of her dress is all that changed about the album cover for these few new singles that are now out, and no doubt topping charts somewhere right now, but the mood is slightly different in these new singles than that of the album. These songs show a much lighter side of the music that was only shown in small bits on the album. The published single is a more upbeat song compared to when she performed it at the CMA’s. We have both the CMA version and the new refined version here for you to listen to! Which do you prefer? We liked the new version better.

Regardless of a poor choice in album cover, we would’ve loved to see some brand new album covers featuring Taylor and possibly settings that relate to each single, we still love her new songs, especially “Ours”. It gets an easy 10 out of 10 here at Toast Pop! Have a listen for yourself!

The Hunger Games Official 2012 Trailer Debut

Today is a monumental day for fans of The Hunger Games! The new and oficial trailer, the one that is actually a trailer, not the one where she is running around in the woods for a minute and a half, has premiered! We have watched it and we love it, and we hate it, but mostly love it. Of course it is not going to be how one envisions the movie in their head, but I am getting the vibe that the cast of characters is not portraying them as they were in the books, perhaps it’s just this commercial not effectively showing character types. Either way, this is the most exciting thing to happen for a long time and since I love the books I am sure the movie will not disappoint overall. For those of you who do not want to waste a few minutes searching for this trailer, we did all the work for you, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

On November 8, 2011 the long awaited Modern Warfare 3 is coming out for sales at many stores around the country. Being the third game in the Modern Warfare series it has a lot of hype, and expectation behind it. Some games don’t live up to that expectation but Infinity Ward never fails us.

There is 80 levels in prestige mode, new and removed perks, two new game types, there is 16 maps on the disc and there bringing back split screen multiplayer online. The two new game types are Kill Confirmed and Team Defender. Kill Confirmed is like Team Deathmatch and the objective of the game is to kill the enemy and collect his dog-tags. The objective of Team Defender is the team grabs a flag and the team defends the person who has the flag. The team holding the flag gets double points, the winner is the person with the most points at the end of the game.
