What have you been doing in the past week or so? Have you taken the time to look outside the window, or at least watch the news and see whatâ€™s going on outside? I know very well how tempting it could be to immerse yourself in a video game for days without connecting with the real world, but just so you know, crazy stuff has been going on out there!
A tropical typhoon destroyed billions worth in the Philippines â€“ countless people are still affected. A tsunami hit the American Samoa. An earthquake rocked Indonesia. Another earthquake hit the southern Philippines.
I donâ€™t know about you, but this stuff about global warming is really wreaking havoc on our earth! There may be other reasons for the disasters â€“ especially the flooding in the Philippines â€“ but there is no denying that we need to do something about the state of nature.
So what am I trying to get at here? One, you might want to help out the victims of these disasters. Here is one simple way you can donate â€“ just click on the link below.
Two, you might want to help by saving energy with regard to gaming. Is there such a thing? Of course! Here are some ways you can do this:
1. Use rechargeable batteries â€“ for the Wii-mote, dude.
2. Turn off your console AND unplug it. Alternatively, plug it into a power strip and always switch that strip off when not in use.
3. Buy the PS3 Slim! 😉
Be a green gamer and make a difference!
