Sploder is a type of website where you can create your own game but you need an account. In this game you’re able to make levels that have power suits, fire trolls and robots. When you press test level you’ll see how much fun Sploder can be. You could challenge your friends with your game to see if they could win or lose. You can even add in some cars, swords, and shields. You can make up to 10 levels with lava, water and weak floors. You can even add in lives plus blasters to help you defend yourself when attacked. The hard part about Sploder is learning how to play it because you have to know how to play it when you test it or you’ll die. Sploder is a game that you can learn how to play, but it can sometimes be hard or easy. In Sploder you can even invite your friends and play multiplayer but you both have to have a Sploder account in order to play. When you play try to make it easy enough for you to beat or else you’ll get sad that you can’t beat it. If you can’t beat you it, you should just try again or make your game again.

YOU ALL know him, the famous South Korean Pop star, PSY. He has brought us entertaining and funny songs and videos. PSY made his amazing debut with his song gangnam style which we all went crazy for. his famous horse dance was something that we all did when we heard his song. After a couple of months Gangnam style was starting to get boring, so on April 12th 2013 PSY came out with his new song Gentleman. As soon as the song came out it was on the news but the real thing we were all waiting for was the music video. PSY’s previous song gangnam style got 1,530,193,904 views !!!!!!! we really wanted the video to come out. surprisingly the video came out a few days ago but after me seeing it I recommend it for people 11+ because some of it may not be appropriate for younger viewers. his latest video has 89,143,242 views in just 3 days !!! so people 11+ you should check out this awesome video on youtube.

Pokémon are very popular little creatures, who appear in video games, TV shows and on cards that you can trade or battle.
Pokémon, created by Satoshi Tajiri CEO of Game Freak, started of as a video game for a system called the Nintendo entertainment system (NES). The game Pokémon (called pocket monsters or poketto monsuta in Japanese.) was invented not to help the rocky situation of the company Game Freak, but as a video game Satoshi wanted to play.
In the four long years of creating Pokémon he had little money to pay his workers. His mentor Shigeru Miyamoto, the inventor of super Mario bros and Donkey Kong, helped him out by giving him advice.
After it was popular in Japan he introduced Pokémon to the United States. USA loved it even though they changed most of the names to English names. Pikachu is one of the few names that did not get changed. Pikachu is a combination of two Japanese words. Pika, the word to describe the sound electricity makes and chu describes what a mouse sounds like. Pikachu became the electric mouse Pokémon.
Then in Japan something bad happened!! In Pokémon episode 23 titled Deno Senshi Porygon or computer soldier, Porygon. 20 minutes into the show an anti virus program fired missiles at Pikachu and his friends, while they were in a computer. Pikachu used his thunderbolt attack. The attack flashed across the screen with red and blue flashes. Even though that flash had happened earlier that show, in this scene animators used a technique called Paki Paki, which made lots of kids get sick. They were not aloud to show that episode. Even though, Pokémon was still popular.
You should really watch or play Pokémon.

Will Wright created the Sims. The Sims started as a helicopter combat game where you go to cities and blow them up. The creator decided that people would want to make the cities so he made a game called Sim City. You start making your city from scratch.
He made a bigger version called Sim Earth where you do the same but on a whole planet. He then made Sim Ant where you make an ant colony survive. He went on to make Sim Life where you do stuff with the eco system. He made a game called Sim Farm where you make a farm. He then made a game called SimCity 2000, which is the same as SimCity, but you have more options.
He made a game called Sim Town for kids, which is like Sim City, which is child friendly. He then made SimCity 3000 where it has more features. He then made the Sims, which is about life like getting a job and stuff. He then made the Sims bursting where you have a real objective to make money. He then made the My Sims, which is a kiddie version for the Wii. He then made Sims 2 and 3 where there are more features.
Well that is my review of the Sims. I have left out some games because they are just add on packs, etc. Out of all of them my favorite is The Sims 3 because you can go solve mysteries!

Harry Potter is a really interesting movie. It’s all about a boy whose parents die and he lives with his cousins. He doesn’t know he is a wizard until he is invited to Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and wizardry. He makes some friends, Ron and Hermione, who help him save the sorcerers stone from Voldemort and Quirrell.
The interesting part is the human size wizard chess.
P.S. Hope you like it.
