About Outbreak Youth Ministries
We live in a world where the popular and easy are being imitated by our young people. As cliché as it seems, in short, they want to be like what they see on television. Our teens want to be accepted, and unfortunately, some will do what it takes to be accepted from what are small things, such as talking like everyone else (cursing, impure jokes, etc.) all the way to joining gangs, having sex, or partaking in many other supposedly “normal” actions for life. This is a crucial time in their lives as it was for all of us at one point. Outbreak Youth Ministries’ mission is to reach the urban population in our community by faithfully living, loving, serving and sharing.
DualShockers is the brainchild of two passionate gaming journalists from New York City, Yaris Gutierrez and Joel Taveras. The name does not represent any allegiance to a particular videogame console (or its controller), the name was chosen because it describes what we aim to do: shock the video game journalism industry. The mainstream gaming media as a whole has become bland, predictable, and full of profit driven bias. Smaller sites (the heart and soul of the industry) are becoming polluted with flamebait, rumors, and fanboyism. We don’t want to be part of either. At this site you will only read real gamer news, real gamer reviews and real gamer editorials. All of which will be garnished with some good ol’ New York City attitude. Prepare to be shocked, ladies and gentlemen.
