    Daphne & Velma Blu-Ray DVD Movie Giveaway – The Mommy Gamers

    **Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.**

    Daphne and Velma is out on Blu-ray from Warner Bros Home Entertainment as well as Digital and DVD! If news of the smart and resourceful women of the iconic Scooby-Doo franchise coming to life in an all-new mystery isn’t exciting enough, we’ve also got a Digital, DVD and Blu-Ray combo copy to give away.

    About Daphne & Velma

    Jinkies! Film stars Sarah Jeffery (Disney’s Descendants: Wicked World) and Sarah Gilman (ABC’s Last Man Standing) team up to follow the first mystery-solving adventures of Scooby-Doo’s leading ladies. As a long time lover of everything Scooby-Doo I will admit to never being able to get enough of the characters. I have also always been curious about some of their backstories. Especially Daphne and Velma.

    Daphne & Velma start out as best friends who have only ever interacted online. They become best friends in spite of the fact that they have wildly different personalities. The way they met online speaks personally to the online introvert in me, and helps fuel my argument that online friendships ARE absolutely real valid friendships.

    Fate eventually tosses the two girls together in real life and that’s when all the mysterious fun begins. I am not going to spoil the story-line for you, but it definitely has the same mysterious feel of some of the previous Scooby-Doo movies.

    Daphne & Velma is a heartwarming movie that feels just like a straight to DVD film should. Cheesy and entertaining. But if you love these characters you are going to absolutely enjoy this movie. I very much enjoyed seeing how they portrayed Daphne and Velma and hope there are more of these featuring the rest of Mystery, Inc. Gang coming soon.

    Daphne & Velma need your help!

    Help Daphne & Velma solve their latest case by helping them decrypt the footage! Dial the knob and meters to just the right position to unlock the footage and move to the next challenge. You’ll trigger fun & spooky sounds right from the movie in this fun soundboard:

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 180: #SaveLucifer

    This week Carrie has been lured back into Destiny 2 with the new content recently released. Marcia still has an unhealthy obsession with Fortnite and chats about Season 4. The Stardew Valley Multiplayer Beta is live too. But with State of Decay 2 releasing this week will Marcia find another new game to love?

    The ladies also talk about the World Air Sex competitions, making this podcast land firmly in the mostly not safe for work category again.

    Last but definitely not least, Marcia and Carrie talk about how much they want the fans to save the TV show Lucifer. It’s been cancelled and left them on a huge cliffhanger with way too many questions to be answered. SaveLucifer please!

    Elgato Collapsible Green Screen Unboxing

    The Elgato collapsible green screen has been on my ultimate Twitch streaming wish list for a while now. My birthday is coming up and I was absolutely surprised to see the mail carrier dragging this up to the front door. So of course I did an overly excited unboxing instantly!

    Old Green Screen:

     My previous green screen was part of this kit I got on Amazon. It worked great, but took up a lot of space. It wasn’t the easiest thing to set up and take down so I got in the habit of leaving it up.

    The frame for my old Limo Studio kit was wobbly, and with kids coming in and out of my space regularly I had some concerns about it possibly falling over. Did it do the job for my Twitch stream? Absolutely, and the price is fabulous for someone just getting started out playing around with chroma key for their stream or videos.

    As you can see in my unboxing video, the Elgato is a million times easier to set up. My youngest daughter could have done it herself, if she were just a little taller. Now I can within seconds have my green screen stowed away, giving me more of my office/bedroom space back. I tried it out today for the first time and aside from having to figure out where exactly to angle the green screen to work within my webcam frame, it was completely easy to use.

    The price is a little steep at $157, but worth the splurge if you can afford it. The Elgato green screen is frequently out of stock and hard to find. If you find it available and you’re ready to upgrade, definitely grab one.

    Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition Review & Giveaway

    Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition allows players to take on the challenges of the modern farmer.

     Farming Simulator 17 originally released to PC back in 2016. The Nintendo Switch Edition makes the farming fun more portable, but removes the ability to mod the game as PC players seem to enjoy doing. You still get the same amazing farming experience however. Explore a huge open world including a detailed North American environment, loaded with farming activities and more than hundreds of acres of land.

    If driving is your thing you’ll be excited to hear that you can drive over 250 authentic farming vehicles and equipment from over 75 manufacturers, including brands such as Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra. Transport your goods in trucks and trailers, or load and drive trains to reach your destination. Outside of driving, farming life will keep you very busy as you harvest crops, tend to your livestock, take part in forestry work, and sell your products to expand and invest in your farm!

    My eight year old daughter Hailey took the reigns on this review:
    Farming Simulator is a fun game, but has no quest that makes it fun to play and the game gives you a tour of the game and the best part of the game is harvesting and the cute animals that produce every day you come back to the game so the game is really peaceful and the future in the game depends on what you do in the game hire workers to do jobs for you and your farm the game gives you reports too.

    You can pick up a copy of Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition on Amazon here, or if you’re feeling lucky…

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 179: Blue Waffle is Delicious

    Episode 179 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast has Blue Waffle in the title, and we suggest not googling that. With that disclaimer out of the way, this week we start things things off with jokes about spring, or the lack thereof. Carrie explains why Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher coming to Ghost Recon Wildlands in the latest update made her weepy. Once Carrie is done reminiscing, she talks in length about The Witness, a beautiful 3D puzzle game she has recently been playing on her Twitch stream.

    The Witness Game The Mommy Gamers Podcast

    Mike Robles is back as a guest again. You might recognize his name as he has written a TON of new reviews for our site this year. He chats about playing Far Cry 5, an action-adventure first-person shooter from Ubisoft which released in March. Oh, and Mike also humble brags about getting a lot of hands on time trying out Soul Caliber 6 at the Games Developers Conference (GDC) . Keep an eye out for that game later this year.

    They also chat about the Billy Mitchell controversy, people holding pop up raves in recently emptied Toys”R”Us buildings, the Blue Team’s waffles on Master Chef Jr. and so much more!
