It was an enjoyable twitter moment for me and it inspired me to post some gaming related moments for Menardconnect.com
What was the first electronic game that I enjoyed playing?
Game & Watch!!!
Game & Watch are handheld games made by Nintendo. It had very simple controls and an LCD screen like below, and the games are very addicting.
I remember enjoying Popeye, Octopus and Mickey Mouse (catching eggs) games in game and watch. These games are from the single screen/wide screen series. I also love that the game and watch have the clock and alarm function so its very useful.
Recently we moved to a new house and during the lipat-bahay preps I unearthed our Game & Watch collection and found these 3 Game and Watch goodies
Meet our survivor Multi-screen Game & Watch: Oil Panic, Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong 2.
I love playing Pokemon GO and I have not posted something about it here in menardconnect.com for a long time. In the Pokemon GO game we have this ongoing event called Team GO Rocket Battle, and I noticed that when the Team GO Rocket Grunts do their trash talk and taunt (ala Jessie and James in the anime), they give clue on what will be their pokemon so you can counter it with your pokemons
Its been a long time since I posted some gaming articles here and currently I am enjoying this new game from Niantic called Harry Potter Wizards Unite. I have stumbled upon some cool potion speed tricks and I have shared them in social media (twitter). The tips are very cool so I would like to share it here at menardconnect.com so that it may help other Harry Potter Wizards Unite players.
Hi Guys! You might have heard of the game Everwing 🙂
Everwing is vertical scrolling shooting game in which player control characters (called guardians) and their dragon sidekick. When I first played it I am reminded of Twin Bee shooter game of the 80’s (hehehe I’m old school gamer), but now it’s on your mobile phone and Facebook messenger so it’s cool!
In the game, guardians are like your avatar with special abilities and together with dragon/sidekicks they will fight monsters and bosses. A great game and I think most of you have received an invite via Facebook messenger. So if you looking for Free Everwing cheats and tips, you are lucky because I will share my most effective Free Six Everwing Cheats:
My first Everwing cheat: Focus on one guardian, and level it up as soon as you can for better damage output.
Fiona (the 2x-XP dragon) is a good choice to level up early so you can have good damage output while leveling
And when Aurora (the item magnet guardian) is available, it will be good to start using it and level up as your main .
Get Lenore too as soon as you have the coins. Lenore is in my opinion the best among the basic guardians when fighting Everwing bosses because of her 2 lives.
My 2nd Everwing cheat: Do quests, even without playing the game
Quests are great free Everwing coins magnet:
And Everwing have good integration with FB messenger (via Gamebot feature) and you can do quests by just some clicks inside Facebook messenger app.
My 3rd Everwing cheat: Create groups of combination of friends for the game invite/challenge
Everwing have some challenges wherein you need to invite new friends or group of friends for a game.
And if you complete 10 (or 30) you get special prize (a dragon egg or a powerful guardian).
Example you have 5 friends actively playing Everwing (Alice, Bob, Chuck, Dave, and Eve) so you need to invite/challenge them individually (5 invite count already) and then create groups of combination of friends and challenge that group.
Example of combinations (in addition to the 5 individual invites)
Create group of you + (2 friends)
6. Alice + Bob
7. Alice + Chuck
8. Alice + Dave
9. Alice + Eve
10. Bob + Chuck
11. Bob + Dave
12. Bob + Eve
13. Chuck + Dave
14. Chuck + Eve
15. Dave + Eve
Then create group of You + 3 friends
… and so on…
Then create group of You + 4 friends.
Then with 5 friends 🙂
But remember: The important thing here is that you DO NOT Spam Non-Everwing FB friends
My 4th Everwing Tip: Fight Bosses and make sure you max-out reward damage
How to know max-out reward damage, see this pic below (look for the red boxed part):
This means by completing this damage bar, you will have more chances of getting good dragon eggs.
My 5th Everwing Cheat: Evolve Dragons with same zodiac.
Zodiac is those symbols beside the dragon.
At level 10 and 20, you can evolve the dragons by merging same-type dragons. Same zodiac evolved means extra damage. Proof? See:
I know it’s tempting to evolve dragons…
But at later levels you will need the highest possible damage in Everwing so this extra damage will really be needed, and you will regret not evolving same zodiac-dragons.
My last Everwing Cheat of the day: Enjoy the game with real friends 🙂
This means interacting and encouraging your real life friends to play Everwing with you. I have some friends IRL and we do friendly Trash Talk 🙂 to make the game more enjoyable and the game is more fun for us this way 🙂 . We also have a family Everwing group and many family members are active damaging the Everwing boss collaboratively for the everwing prizes.
That’s all of my free six Everwing Cheats and Tips for the day! Hope you like it!
How about you? Do you have everwing tips and cheats too? Feel free to share it by leaving some comments below 🙂
Mobile Legends MoBA is a very exciting game. It’s so hot too that I’ve got lots of FB friends that are into it too. Even a local telco joined in the MoBA fray and organized a Mobile Legends MoBA tournament of sorts recently. For me Mobile Legends is like DotA (Defense of the Ancients) but for the mobile phones. My last MoBA was DoTA (haha forgive me if I’m an old school gamer) so it was an instant hit for me when my family members invited me to try it out.
Philippines release was last Saturday, August 6 ,2016. Happy hunting!
When the first wave of tweets and FB posts about Pokémon GO went around, I thought it was just hype.
But this month after the US/ANZ release I know that it’s the real deal. So I was anticipating that in the Philippines gaming scene, it will be a gaming super-hit too. Fast forward to 2nd week of July, my telco tweeted the tweet below and my interest was at its peak
But after this #paasa tweet and hundreds of other tweets from my Pinoy friends on Pokemon Go PH release, wala pa rin. Still waiting after 10 days and as of writing nada/nil/zero 🙁
So I decided that I need to update Menardconnect.com and I will share my free six info Pokemon GO Philippines in the tradition of my free six video and other free six series.
1. Pokemon Go official updates is available at Niantic Labs Official Pokemon website. Official updates on releases are published in the link below
last 3 releases in HK, Canada and other 26 countries.
2. Check Official Apple Store and Official Google Android Store. For iOS, go to
and click open in iTunes.
Chances are it’s available in US and other Apple Stores and you need to change your store.
3. If still not available in Philippines do NOT force installation via changing store. Some of my friends have tried this trick and confirmed that developers have disabled some GPS/geo ip settings, so you won’t find any Pokémon in Philippines GPS locations.
4. Thinking about Pokemon Go Cheats and Tricks? Think again!!! The devs have learned much from their previous Geo-loc game Ingress and I am sure they will be on top of the cheats/”gaming the game” issue. So I suggest you don’t try OK?
5. For Android enthusiasts and iOS jail breakers, don’t risk with those Pokemon Go APK and ios app packages and be part of statistics. But if you can reverse engineer the file and know its detailed behavior then go ahead be my guest (and eat malware for breakfast too) 😀
6. An interesting site for the Pokemon Go Server Status that I recommend
So that completes my free six info for Pokemon GO Philippines. Will try to post soon when its finally officially released in the Philippines. Hope you enjoyed my Pokemon GO Philippines post here at menardconnect.com
Pokemon Go PH is now officially released.
Philippines release was last Saturday, August 6 ,2016. Happy hunting!
I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
I think I’m losing my mind now
Don’t Let Me Down, Chainsmokers & Daya
We came prepared (yup we heeded Illidan’s warning). We donned our WoW gear and we’re off to the moviehouse on the first weekend of PH screening. If you are curious about our iLvl 6xx gears, here is a sample pic 🙂
Yeahhh men! We are WoW fanatics so we were really excited about the movie!
The movie, content, graphics, and all was great. I can rave and rave about the movie on this blog but the post might be terribly long. So in the tradition of my free six series let me highlight some six rave points about the movie Warcraft: The Beginning
The details of the orc structures (the orc upgraded buildings in the eagles eye view scene is so neat)
Boomsticks!!! (Cool invention from our Ironforge friends)
Fight gryphons fight! (see how Lothar’s gryphon fend off orcs)
Humans and their meetings with other races (Fun! most of the time nothing is accomplished hehehe)

I understand that the film is set in an alternate timeline. But I will post three main personal rants about the movie:
Mak’gora concept was screwed (In Durotan vs Gul’dan, fel magic was used. Maybe I’m old fashioned and into the official lore too much but this Mak’gora is tainted imho. But hey maybe its only me)
The Garona love affair angle (Sorry I really don’t like the Miss Halforcen character in-game and so this will definitely affect how I felt about her in the film)
Khadgar did not age at all. Duh! (Seriously, for all the powers of Medivh and Sargeras unleashed upon him, it did do much impact on Young Trust’s appearance)
Not necessarily the movie’s fault. But the 3D cinema we were watching was so so. FYI, Blizzard partnered with one of the major malls in the Philippines and if you watch it in 3D you get some freebies in-game.
But the “good” PH partner put Warcraft: The Beginning in fewer cinemas, and some cases like ours in older ones that resulted to the not so good experience. Honestly I would be happy if they put Warcraft movie in the cinemas in The Block in North Edsa but no they screened it in the older cinemas. Boo!
But enough of the ugly part. The important thing is that Warcraft the Beginning is now a reality now after some xx numbers of planning, shooting and CGI-ing.
Watch the trailer below courtesy of Blizzard and Legendary Pictures
Overall, great movie. I highly recommend the movie to all Warcraft fans and non-fans out there especially to all my readers who have played any Warcraft game in their life! Just like the Chainsmoker feat. Daya song, this movie is full of anticipation and I’m happy it did not let us down!!!
Some good World of Warcraft news to WoW MMORPG fans out there. Blizzard is having a World of Warcraft sale at the Blizzard Store this week for Thanksgiving!

Wow! Blizzard and Legendary released the first movie trailer for Warcraft the Movie over the weekend at Blizzcon 2015. With the tagline Two Worlds, One Home, the Warcraft movie is set around the timeline of the First War between the Orcs and Humans and will feature Anduin Lothar and Durotan as the two main characters.
Watch the Warcraft: Movie trailer below courtesy of YouTube
This is really exciting and honestly for me, the trailer raised more questions than answers. I understand that the movie was in the works since 2009 (to be directed by Sam Raimi) and I am just happy that after all the setbacks, this movie will be soon be a reality.
For the Alliance side, we are expected to see Medivh (Ben Foster), King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper), Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer), Taria Wrynn (Ruth Negga), Varian Wrynn and Moroes (Callum Keith Rennie) in addition to Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel). For the Horde side, the movie will cast Toby Kebbell as Durotan, Robert Kazinsky as Orgrim Doomhammer, Daniel Wu as Gul’dan, Anna Galvin as Draka, Clancy Brown as Blackhand, and Terry Notary as Grommash Hellscream. Truly an EPIC line of characters for both Alliance and the Horde.
The movie is set to be released on June 10, 2016. As an avid warcraft fan, I will post more updates here at menardconnect.com soon.
The Swarm brought ruin to our world. Our proud people became refugees. And yet, they could not shatter our unity. For we are bound by the Khala. The sacred union of our every thought and emotion. Today we retake our homeworld. And with it, our legacy!
I really love the Protoss so when my brother told me that Blizzard released a new opening cinematic for Starcraft 2 Legacy of the Void 2 weeks ago, I immediately searched for it and watch it right away.
I was really amazed!!! I love the golden armor of the Protoss, the charging of the ever reliable zealots. And I also realized that the sentinels are cute in animation. Of course most of the Protoss fanatics who watched it will be mesmerized when “the merging is complete” and Archons will shout “Power overwhelming!!!“. Bad luck for the Zerg, they let the Protoss build a pylon so this will be a warping galore for the Protoss.
I believe the cinematic is set in Aiur, and it seems the Protoss is focused to reclaim their old stronghold. I wonder why there so few zergs than usual, maybe their Queen took the Swarm to deal with the other greater enemy.
For more Legacy of the Void backstory, enjoy this video posted by Blizzard today…
I am excited with Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void and I can’t wait for the November 10, 2015 launch!!!
