Competitive multiplayer shootout or just playing by yourself, there are some common guidelines that will ensure you are First on the podium when the last player gets fragged.

First Person Shooters (FPS) are easily the fastest, most intensive gaming experience ever developed. Pioneered by John Carmack and his company id Software, shooters provide a unique high-speed in your face perspective on the gaming experience due to its ‘first person’ nature.

To play such a fast-twitch genre and come out on top, you have to follow a few basic guidelines and rules.

  1. Unlike most other games, FPSs require a more powerful computer with a graphics card that can push high framerates even during the most graphics-intensive firefights. If the framerate is below 30fps all other advice given herein will be utterly useless. Ideally framerates should be 60fps for the smoothest gameplay. And if you intend to frag online, you will need high speed internet, with a low ping between you and the host server.
  2. Gaming surface- This in my opinion is the key to winning. Any mouse pad will not do, you will need a gaming-specific design, with a fairly large area, made of material that will enhance the tracking of your mouse. In my case I use the Mionix Propus 380- and it is simply PERFECT for my old Logitech G5 laser mouse.
  3. Any mouse made in the last 5-10 years will be more than adequate for playing games, as I said before, a high-quality mouse-PAD is the key. As long as it fits you hand perfectly, and comfortably your good to go. No need to pay extra for DPI settings that reach orbit, or 50 buttons or fancy lights that make it look like E.T.’s spaceship.
  4. Set the in-game mouse sensitivity to a fairly high level- high enough that will allow you to spin around, look around with a simple twitch of the mouse, while still being able to have control of the movement without too much hassle. This will need lots of practice, and at first you may feel like a high sensitivity is too much, but keep at it and after a few sessions of extended gameplay and getting acclimatized you will realize how easy and smooth complex moves become. THIS IS A MUST-DO RULE IF YOU WISH TO MASTER FAST TWITCH GAMES such as Quake and the Unreal Tournament franchises.

That’s all the advice you will need to become master of the FPS genre. Follow these rules and keep practicing.

Have a look at some of my exploits in maximum difficulty against the bots in Quake III, using all the advice given above.

Ok so everywhere you look supplement companies have a trillion products on the market, each claiming to be essential, or the next big thing, for muscle building!

I have been bodybuilding for a long time, and I know all this crap is just that- CRAP! Its just marketing gobbledegook and nuttin else!

If you eat six meals a day, high in proteins (chicken breasts, lean red meats, fish, egg whites), with a bit of carbohydrates (pasta, oatmeal), plus lots of vegies and fruits thrown in, drink lots of non-fat milk and a gallon of water- you are 90% there nutritionally!

Forget all those Pre-workout stimulants, they are loaded with caffeine and other lord knows what ingredients that end up giving some users heart attacks!

The Only supplements you will ever need are these!

1) Protein- preferably a combination of Whey protein during the day between meals and before and after workouts, and Casein protein before you go to bed in the night!

2) Creatine Monohydrate- tried and true supplement that give you boost in power when taken before your workout session. Very safe and very well researched and understood.

3) Vitamin C- this is a wonder vitamin that helps your body recover and rebuild after a heavy session at the gym. Also gets rid of free radicals in your system.  Take at least 1000mg a day.

So thats all you need.

Some people might suggest a multivitamin in there as well.

Personally I feel if your eating well you won’t need a multivitamin. But if you wanna take one, it ain’t gonna hurt.

Some might suggest taking some testosterone boosting products and minerals such as ZMA or a dedicated Zinc supplement. I used to take ZMA and never really saw any strength gains from them.

Anyhow those are my 3 recommended supplements for you to start packing on some serious muscle.

DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!

THeir prices are so cheap because they sell fake products- NOT GENUINE!

I bought a Optimum Whey protein 5lbs tub from them and IT DID NOT have the GENUINE HOLOGRAM on it. If One product is fake, stands to reason ALL OF THE PRODUCTS ARE FAKE!

I contacted Optimum Nutrition is the US and they said they don’t know this company and their Official distributor in Sri Lanka is some other company.

I also contacted Bodybuilding.COM whose logo these guys closely copy, and they said they don’t know them either.

Buy from Life Supplement Store in thimbirigasyaya- they have the Genuine Product or buy straight from the US Bodybuilding.com Store!
