Why the NFL lockout will end the world.

admin | June 14, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (1)

The NFL lockout has made some progress in recent weeks, but it is most certainly still in effect.  If this lockout continues, then maybe the rapture will happen.  American football is huge in America, and surrounds our everyday lives, but if we don’t get no football, we don’t get no future.

Reasons.

5.Crime will increase almost 20-fold.  Those Sundays you spent on your couch drinking beer and watching football will now be the Sundays  you spend driving around drunk and high on cocaine looking for fun.

4.When America is bored, we do terrible things.  Remember Vietnam? Yeah, we will blow some shit up no doubt.

3.What do we eat at football games? Hot dogs. Where do hot dogs come from? I think pigs… So if there is less demand for hot dogs we will have an overabundance of pigs.  Pigs will be everywhere and pigs can eat anything, like your face.  Also, if there is a nuclear war, there will be mutant pigs with a hunger for you face that also run faster than cheetahs.  I’ll call them cheepigs.  Be afraid.

2.Depression will kill millions.  You know that neighbor who is the Packer’s #1 fan and painted his Ford Ranger green and yellow to show his appreciation to Aaron Rodger’s successful career and Favre’s penis?  What is he going to do with himself.  He has no football, he has no reason to wear that cheese hat, and all he has is a framed picture of Brett Favre’s penis.  Next thing you know, he’s hanging in his front yard from his Packers scarf his late mother knitted for him.

1.Zombies outbreaks.  Okay, so usually during football season most people are busy watching football on Sundays, Mondays and for some godly reason Thursday, but only if you have the NFL Network because the NFL are a bunch of douches. Anyways, no doubt some of these football fans are intelligent… maybe?  Okay so the .5% of football fans that are intelligent will be bored since there is no football.  What do they do?  Experiment.  That’s what smart people do, they just do crazy things and end up with 3 assed monkeys or a portal to the Netherworld.  It’s science.  So maybe one of these intelligent people is experiments trying to cure athletes foot without the use of tough actin’ Tinactin and suddenly outbreak.  That cure suddenly become an airborne virus that affect the central nervous system and turns otherwise healthy humans into the living dead.

Sounds likely.

 

 


Are free games really free?

admin | in Gaming | Comments (1)

There is a new trend that is hitting the gaming industry, and it is playing games for free. It is a catchy trend because it has the word “free” in it’s title and who doesn’t love the word free? But with everything free, there is always a catch, and it seems to be that every free game has a “catch” to it. These catches make it hard for me to consider some of these games free.

Most of these games are available to play without any fees, but in order to get the full experience of each game, there is usually an optional fee. For instance, I played Battlefield Play4Free and found that the only way to get a decent weapon is to pay for one and those who dish out the extra money usually have an unfair advantage. Of course you can get in-game currency, but it is scarce. So you download this free game and expect it to be completely free but then you see everyone has better weapons and eventually most will break down and pay the extra so they aren’t pwned nonstop. Yes the game is free but these little gimmicks give those who do pay an unfair advantage.

I see this a lot with the free games, mostly with free mmorpg’s. If you pay the extra money at their “item malls”, you can get special weapons that are stronger than ones found from in game loot. In a game without PvP, it’s all good but if it is a PvP game, then it gives those who dish out the extra money, again, an unfair advantage. Also with some of these MMO’s like Battle of the Immortals, only those who pay for the extra items can take advantage of certain in game events.

Of course there are legit free games, League of Legends for example. You get free characters each week to play as, and you get in game currency for each match you play. All characters are as balanced as possible, which is nice, so your free characters are just as powerful as others. The only items that require actual cash are the skins for your characters which do not affect your overall gameplay.

League of Legends is just one of the few examples of game that can be considered free to play and it is the only one that I have really found. If you have any experiences with free 2 play games, comment on this article or leave a game you believe is truly free 2 play.


Why I am Buying Duke Nukem Forever

admin | June 13, 2011 in Gaming | Comments (0)

I don’t care if anyone says this game sucks, I will own this game.  Reasons why? Right here, son.

3.Nostalgia –  I used to play this game on the N64 like a damn madman.  Pixelated strippers and outer space baddies? Sounds like a good time.

2.Fun – Duke is about having fun.  We are so lost in having a game that is dead serious, that we lost sight on why we play games; for fun.  This game is in it for the fun factor and not the graphics.  I mean shrink rays, scantily clad women, Duke’s quotes, play pinball out of no where, all the interactiveness of it, its all just plain fun.  Yes, you could argue the price on the game, but still.

1. It’s Duke – I mean, come on.  Hail to the king baby.  I know they are hoping that his name sells this game alone, and I’ll be damned if it’s not working on me.  To me, he is one of the coolest video game characters out there.  He doesn’t give a fuck about anything other than himself, girls, and killing baddies.  And to think your favorite character is Cloud for FFVII.


Halo 4 now reservable at Gamestop

admin | June 11, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (0)

Yup, the new addition in the Halo series is up for preorder at Gamestop. I know we all saw it coming, they couldn’t just STOP Halo, there was going to be another one no matter what. At least it’s not becoming a Madden title like Call of Duty where there’s one every year. But I guess this is the start of a new trilogy, and will feature Master Chief and not some random doucher spartan.


BlazBlue:Continuum Shift II 3ds Review

admin | June 10, 2011 in Gaming | Comments (1)

I purchased my 3DS with the hopes of getting some badass games in awesome 3d graphics that also have the amount of fun that the DS titles had.  Well there have been a few and a new one has entered the ring.  Enter BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II for the 3ds.

It’s a 2d fighter with a lot of style.  If you have ever played any of the previous BlazBlue’s, then you will be happy to know that his handheld version sticks well to the console versions.  The one big difference is the ability to have online matches, which is a big bust. The graphics stick well to the console versions.  It’s is a really good looking game and the 3d aspect is awesome.  I mean there’s not a whole lot you can do with a 2d fighter but they did enough to give it some depth.

The fighting in the game is awesome as well.  One downside to the fighting is how small the buttons are and if you want to use the D-pad on the 3ds, it’s in a really uncomfortable position. The addition of the moves on the bottom screen is a nice touch.  Also, if you are looking to a plethora of game modes, BBCS II has plenty of them.  I tried to go through all of them but it’s a lot to take in.  The story mode was great, however, where it utilizes each of the 10 main characters throughout the story mode.

The game has a few flaws, but not enough to really make the game bad.  I enjoyed my time with BlazBlue ont he 3ds.  It was a fun fighter, and was very stylish.  It does have a learning curve to it, so beware, but once you get it down, you will have a blast. The online mode not being there sucks, the low amount of characters kinda blows, and framerate can drop a wee bit at times. Those are really my biggest problems with my game, but other then that, it’s a great game to add to your expanding 3ds collection.


Amazing Deadpool Comics

admin | in Randomly | Comments (0)

Ok, so nobody knows this probably, unless you’re a close friend, but Deadpool is my favorite Marvel character. Reasons? Don’t need any, it’s Deadpool. Anyways, I was browsing the interwebs and came across these gems. If you are a fan of comics or Deadpool, you should definitely check out Scarlet Vultures comic strips. They are hilarious as hell.


Today I got a discount for…

My Manchester United dog tag, and it was at a comic book store.  And THAT is why soccer is better than your sport, unless it’s hockey.  Hockey and Soccer are cool, they are like the cool kids at school, football is the fat kid, and baseball is the geek.  Ping pong can be the  wild card that gets all the babes though. Softball, we can all agree, is the fat girl.


DMC will be awesome.

admin | in Gaming | Comments (1)

When the new Dante was shown, everyone freaked the hell out.  Everyone hated that he didn’t have his white hair, he looked too emo, and that Capcom was taking Devil May Cry in the wrong direction.  I disagree.

A reboot is was the series needs.  There have been 4 so far in Devil May Cry, and 4 was a poor attempt at a reboot.  Nero just wasn’t as cool as Dante.  Now, in the new DMC, we have a younger Dante before he knew about his demon heritage.  He’s young, pissed off, and wondering what the hell is wrong with him.  Watch the video below and tell me that this equation doesn’t add up to badassness.

I’m sorry to all the raging nerds who hated change.  This change could be for the better.  You just need to learn change can be for the better.   I am sure the gameplay will stay the same, but the story will be different.  Come on, wouldn’t we all like to know where Dante really came from?


Rabble Rabble Rabble

A lot of crap to discuss. First is, Doctor who is amazing. I swear I can watch this show all damn day. It is what sci-fi should be. You have a new premise each episode, where you can be in the middle ages one episode, and in a futuristic human creating lab the next. And not to mention the Doctor is the coolest person in the world. If my toolbox consisted of one thing it would be a sonic screwdriver.

Secondly, I hate Gears of War and I hate the douches that usually play it. It seems like it’s usually big, butch dudes with Affliction t-shirts come in and get that damn game. It’s a terrible game. If I shoot someone in the leg, it’s the same as shooting them in the head. The story line is crappy too, not only are you going to fail, but your partner is a whiny bitch that complains about his dead wife the entire time. This is a video game, try and be like a real video game hero. The name Duke Nukem comes to mind.

And lastly, am I the only one that needs a shower after going into Walmart? Seriously… I walked in to grab a snack on my break and I left feeling… dirty. Something about that place just makes my world feel nasty. I mean ya it’s cool I can save 3 pennies on a bag of veggies, but I feel like I should sterilize it first. Not to mention Walmarts always smell like redneck and fat people, which kinda smells like sour cream on an old hot dog. I will say, yes, decent people go into Walmart, but for every 1 decent person, there is 10 customers in a Nascar shirt from 1995(That doesn’t include you fucking hipsters.).


Hardcore Dancing

admin | June 3, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (0)

Alright, I am currently at a concert in downtown st. Petersburg. I walked outside and a kid asks me, “are there any bands I can two step to?”. For those of you who don’t know, two stepping is like the formal hardcore dance, imagine a person swinging their arms and doin the running man. But really? A guy just asked me if there was a band he could dance to… I mean we aren’t talking s respectable dance, like salsa or swing dancing, but dancing like an idiot. I thought girls were supposed to ask those questions… But no, some scene kid with gauges and a pbr to match. Friends don’t let friends hardcore dance…

This could be an epic movie or epic epicness.  Seriously.  the CGI looks amazing, and there is pissed off apes everywhere. What more do you want?  Sarah Jessica Parker in a horse costume? Wait.. she already… nevermind.


Do We Invest Too Much In Video Game Reviews?

admin | in Randomly | Comments (2)

What do we do when a game first comes out? We check out the reviews on the game to see how it is. It’s a smart thing to do, considering games usually cost around $60 a piece and who wants to spend that much money on a crappy game? I feel as though people let reviews determine too much of their purchases.

Say you were totally excited about a game that just came out and you check the reviews on it and it kinda bombed. Odds are you probably won’t pick up the game. Maybe you’re lucky and didn’t buy a piece of trash, or you are missing out a game you would be in love with. This has happened to me, I have found myself being way too persuaded by other people’s opinions on games. If I see a 6/10, meh, I’ll pass. But maybe that 6 of a game would keep me up every night and give me countless hours of fun whereas it probably wasn’t the reviewers cup of tea.

Yes, reviews are helpful, I mean I write some too. But reviews are not supposed to be the end all for your purchase. Read it, see what they have to say and take their opinion into consideration, but do not let their opinion fully persuade you. If they say the game is broken and buggy, yeah steer clear. But if they say something like “The story was uber lame”, or “I hate the characters”, ignore it, it’s that person’s opinion about aesthetics within the game, maybe the story is lame but the mechanics of the game are a lot of fun. This is why we should all at least try a demo out of the game, that way you can actually play a small snippet of the game and get a taste of it for yourself. Another thing you can do is even watch gameplay of the video game itself.

I am not saying you should completely avoid reviews, just read a lot of them and think for yourself. When I start doing reviews on this website, it will be my opinion. My opinion will never be the same as anyone else, but if anyones ideas are somewhat similar, then maybe my review will be a lil bit helpful. But I never want to be the reason why someone missed out on a great game.


Story about a friend of mine.

admin | June 1, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (0)

This is a story that I actually tell a lot of people, it’s a story about how I got one of my best friends. This story is a bit more serious than my previous, so reader beware!

In the early spring of 2008, I started feeling very odd every day. I didn’t feel like myself, and I started to become closed off to the world around me. No one really noticed that much, because I put on a mask every time I went out. It got to the point though where I didn’t even want to leave my bed. This was odd to me, because I have always been the energetic one, the one that was always ready for a new adventure. I wasn’t ready for anything during this funk I was in. I woke up every morning with an upset stomach and if I had to work, it was even worse and I would end up vomiting. It got even worse though when I was driving. I had multiple attacks while I was driving, which made me never want to drive.

One morning during the summer I woke up for work, and ended up throwing up. I told my mom to call my work and say I would be late but she told them I wouldn’t be coming in. She did this so she could take me to the doctor. After a few questions, it was obvious to the doctor what was wrong with me. I had depression and an anxiety disorder. It shocked me and my parents. I was the happy one, why was I depressed? I ended up having depression from my anxiety disorder. It wasn’t because I hated the world, I honestly couldn’t control the depression.

So I went home with my prescription, and a psychiatrist appointment and set out on making myself better.
I ended up going to the psychiatrist once a month, and she really helped out a lot, and I was also prescribed a daily anti-anxiety pill. I still thought too much about the situation. That’s when I thought about getting myself a dog. I asked my parents, and they were iffy about me getting a pup. I figured that if I got one, it would take my mind off of everything and I could set my mind on something. I didn’t think about it too long term.

I ended up going to the local animal services to check out the dogs. Upon looking around, i found these little lab puppies that were cute as could be. With the papers in hand, I went up to the front counter to see about adopting one. When filling out the papers, we had to list all animals we had. Oh yeah, I have to old pups as well, forgot about that. I used to live in Arizona where we got one of them, and we never had to register the animals like we do here. So I had to bring them in to get them registered. I went home upset and puppyless.

The next day came around and we brought in the old ladies, and got them registered. Me and my friend Ben walked to where they kept the adoptable pups to find those little puppies. To my surprise, they were gone and had been adopted. I was upset, I had my mind set on one of them. So I walked around, and didn’t find any puppies I could raise. So as I was walking down the last aisle, I was running out of hope and said to myself “this last kennel better have a puppy in it.”

There was my little puppy, sitting there with her tongue out and her tail wagging like crazy. Without hesitation, I grabbed the adoption papers and took them up to the front counter. I didn’t even want to meet her, there was something about her and I had to have her. She had to meet the other 2 dogs first however and knowing my old pups, they could get rather pissy. They loved the puppy, and I had a smile across my face. I ended up getting her and naming her Kora.

I took her straight to Petsmart and showed her off to everyone. She slept with me that night and every night after that. She woke me up every morning around 4 A.M. to go to the bathroom, but it didn’t even bother me, I was there for her. I noticed shortly after, that she had a dent on her head, it looked like she had been abused as a puppy. This made me angry and sorry for her. I told her I was going to give her the best life possible and that is what I have given her.

She was one of the main reasons why I got over my depression. I cared too much about her to even care for myself and to this day when I’m with her, I suddenly forget everything else. I love this dog to death, not only because she is one of my best friends, but because she helped me get over one of the worst times in my life.

We have since adopted another dog, Maximus Prime. Kory(Her name changed a bit) and him have become best friends and play with each other non stop. It’s nice to see she has another dog to play with and doesn’t only need me. It’s sad because I can’t take her with me anywhere, because she has become so attached to Max, but I know that’s what she needs.

So if you are ever in a crappy situation in your life and feel like no one is ever there for you, visit your local Animal Services. There are plenty of friends there for you, whether it is a dog, cat, bunny, or even ferret.
