I miss rainy days and playing final fantasy 7 and 9. Both were played in my adolescence and held a particular magic for that time,  something that had been hard to duplicate at my current age :s

I've done two bodybuilding shows and can say that you want to get your body weight in grams of protein, at least! For example, if you weigh 150lbs, you should be getting a minimum of 150g of protein throughout the day. I started at 150lbs but my trainer (a nationals champ for bodybuilding) had me taking roughly 300g of protein per day--bascially I had protein whenever my body needed it. The protein I took came from whey isolate, lean chicken breast, and pork tenderloin.

Additionally, as a rule of thumb, always eat protein with your carbs. So if you eat any bread, rice, potatoes, etc., have some protein with it, too. Protein makes you feel full, carbs don't. And for the best results, eat 5-7 times a day. Not huge meals, but enough to keep your body from going into starvation mode and storing your intake as fat. The worst thing you can do if you're trying to lose weight, whether you're fat or just want to be cut, is only eating 1-3 meals per day. Your body will get used to having long breaks between meals and consequently store all the food you eat as fat, to use later.

If you're working out, it's also super important to drink lots of water. Your body won't build muscle without water. And when it comes to working out, drink protein throughout, have some protein after, but most important, GET YOUR CARBS AFTER A WORKOUT. My trainer had me take 2 scoops of whey AND eat 2 cups of rice after every workout. It's not all about the protein.

I enjoyed this piece. I did a quick edit on punctuation and sentence structure. Nothing major, and mostly my own preference. 

 

Signs, symbols, transgressions, bilateral stigmintations--all can potentially blind a mind or a spirit strewn in nothingness. Incorporations of self interest and objects that permeate trust build lasting foundations in our minds that can ultimately sanctify security. Fear is prominent in the mice a falcon sweeps to feast on, morally constructed in a way deemed functional in the eyes of God. There are aspects of life that are unbearable to some and most definitely for all the right reasons--morale or begotten in universal indulgence. What form our symbols take is begotten by self experience and more formally rectified in dreams. We see things in life sometimes we dont ask to see, sometimes death, betrayal, premonitions, and otherwise misfortune. The pain that accompanies such visions I myself have asked God to take away from memory on the fleeing wings of angels, and through the same clouds the falcon frequents. Why is a bird of prey of symbolic significance? Because it represents absolute freedom (feels awkward the other way) and power. The same influential power binds our awe (not plural) in heroes and [...] those who rise above great tremors to secure justice, and sacrifice. The time that is the consideration of self-indulgence (hyphenated) professes a mind that envelopes itself in symbolic interactions. A falcon professes its freedom in the skies and its valiancy in the clouds, to both see the angels and be reminded of hell below in the mice; the falcon itself is the pacifist in a world of resistance. Pulling on the heartstrings of the fallen to solidify a mind that is both the culmination of heaven and hell can burn a lasting symbol into the eyes of ones enemy.

Good review :) My quick grammatical tip for you this time regards possession. I noticed a few errors throughout your review, so here's a review:

IT'S = IT IS (i.e. it's cold outside)

ITS = POSSESSION (i.e. its alien eyes stared back menacingly)

ITS' = DOES NOT EXIST. NEVER USE.

Decent review :) It was short, concise, and I was pleased to see no extraneous adverbs. All in all, just a few tweaks...

1. I would write Game and Watch as Game & Watch, which is how I've seen it written in the past. It's not a huge deal, but formality does call for certain names/titles to keep the '&' instead of 'and,' such as in "Black & White Publishing," or "Burke & Brown," etc.

2. "The bare minimum setup required as an excuse to monkey around 8 varied worlds, smashing some tiki along the way" is a sentence fragment, which means it's not a complete sentence. Grammatically, it can't function on its own because the idea is incomplete. You must either change the structure, or link it to another sentence via a colon, semi-colon, or dash. To do that, you'd probably have to adjust the surrounding sentence structures, too. 

3. Heaphones on should be headphones-on.

As I said, only a few minor tweaks :D

Sands of Time was the big PoP reboot, and arguably has one of the best plots out of all the PoP titles. Four bucks is a killer deal!

I did buy a $499 PS4 bundle. Comes with Battlefield 4 and a year of PS Plus.
