The Best Mini Arcade Games and Cabinets

Chances are when you were a kid you went to the arcade. Doesn’t matter if it was some rinky dinky arcade down the street from your house or at the local strip mall, I think we’ve all been to an arcade at one point or another.

One thing I always remember while playing on them was how I thought FOR SURE when I got to be an adult, that I would own one of these cabinets.

I was wrong hah. One of the reasons I was wrong though is because these cabinets are expensive. We’re not talking a few hundred bucks, but thousands of dollars, especially if it’s a classic game.

So what are you supposed to do if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend but you still want one of these cabinets? One idea is to start looking at mini arcade systems and cabinets...

Assassin’s Creed Origins Achievement Leaks +DLC Information

Chances are one of the games you got this year was Assassin’s Creed Origins. I mean it was ONLY the most hyped up game! I don’t blame them though, the game is really fun and my little cousin said that out of the 4 big purchases he made this year, this one is definitely not regrettable! The hype is real! Ya know what else is real? The chance that these leaks to Assassin’s Creed Origins are true. The leaks contain achievements which could in turn tease the new and upcoming DLC for Assassin’s Creed Origins called The Hidden Ones. More about that below.

This was actually found on STEAM and someone was quick and smart enough to screen grab it before it was taken down. I shouldn’t have to say this: But, if you don’t want to be spoiled, click to another article on Gamers Elite.

Board Games Based on Video Games

Once in awhile, you need a break from video games! If you like board games but you also love video games, you might be surprised to know that there are actually board games based on video games. These tend to be a lot of fun, but they are also very detailed. Depending on the video game board game, what it includes and just how intricate it is; the price will change accordingly. Here are a few to take a look at!

Loving The New HP Envy Laptop

As you know I got a new laptop.  It’s the newest HP Envy from this year.  The 3 biggest issues I have/had with it:

1- The HP Envy Laptop is not bright enough.  Crazy, right?  I turned everything up and it’s still not bright enough. Not to mention my colors seem washed out.  Or… incorrect.  The blue footer on Facebook for example, looks indigo.  Seriously.  It has a purple rather than blue coloration to it. I found a 4th setting though that allows me to brighten the settings (and change colors) for the Graphics Card.  Hopefully I figure out the right colors and brightness soon!  I feel like these computer companies like to hide stuff more and more as the time goes on.  And forget about asking for help.  (Same with games, it’s always the users fault, not the games/computers fault lol)...

The Best Christmas Presents For Parents

Over the past few weeks, Gamers Elite has done 2 specific Christmas lists geared towards Gifts For Her and Gifts for kids. But, what about parents? Parents are a little more difficult to shop for because they all seem to like different things. My parents, for instance, are not gamers, but my mom likes to cook and read and decorate.

My dad, on the other hand, likes cars, karate movies, and sports. As you can clearly see; 2 different people and 2 very different people to shop for!

That’s why I wanted to do a Christmas Presents for Parents list. Some of these items are gamer related, while others are sports, cooking, reading, etc related. That way you can get a few ideas for each parent and hopefully get them something they really want and can enjoy!

Drones Anyone? These Are The Best Drones For Each Experience Level

Drones have become a sore subject over the past few years because people have been using them to invade people’s privacy. But, drones can actually be pretty fun and legal if you use them properly! If you’ve never flown one though, these drones can seem dauntingly difficult to control. That’s why I wanted to create a post about drones for different levels; beginners, intermediate and advanced users.

While this is not video game related, I do like drones and its under the Cool Stuff I Like category!

So what exactly is a drone and how does it work?

A drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle. They can either fly via GPS or are radio controller. While there are quite a few different types of drones, the most popular versions for consumers are:

Quadcopters: A multirotor drone that is lifted and prope...

The End Of Black Friday/Cyber Monday For Gamers Elite

While Cyber Monday and Black Friday are officially in our rearview mirrors, fret not fellow Gamers! Gamers Elite will still be posting and featuring sales as per usual. But it just won’t be as saturated as the posts were on Friday and Monday. There are still a lot of discounts available out there for Gamers.

I personally look forward to getting back to video game news, achievements, rumors/leaks, pre-orders and more. Of course, as always some sales will be peppered throughout. Black Friday and Cyber Monday were stressful beyond belief for me! So many articles needed to be written and I am only one person! I can only do so much. So I hope that I included as many sales and discounts that you were looking for.

Thanks for sticking with me...

Vikings Season 5 Coming Soon!

I had never heard of this show until my little cousin introduced it to me last year, and we both binge watched all the seasons – me for the first time and him for the 3rd time. What can I say, that kid likes Vikings!  I mean, hello, we went to the Ren Festival and he went dressed as Loki for God’s sake.  I remember watching all the seasons with him.

He brought over a huge “ale” container for me and one of those Biking Horns you can drink out of for himself.  Yea.  We really got into it!  Vikings Season 5 is coming very soon. The new release date for Vikings Season 5 is November 29th 2017 on the History channel.  I am SUPER pumped!
