Pat Robertson says GOP is being too extreme?

admin | October 26, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (0)

Pat Robertson, the televangelist, said that the GOP is being too extreme in their campaigns.

“It may be a blessing in disguise. … Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. Haitians were originally under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you will get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it’s a deal. Ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other.”

That was Pat Robertson talking about the earthquake in Haiti that killed tens of thousands of people and destroyed the island.

Yes, this extremely extreme asshole who said the deaths of the Haitians was a blessing in disguise is saying the GOP needs to calm down.  He says they are being too close-minded and only aiming their campaigns toward a small portion of Americans. Pat wants them to try and reach out to more people so they have better chances in the long run.

I never thought I would see the day when Pat Robertson would actually have something smart to say.


49 exotic animals killed in Ohio *graphic content*

admin | October 22, 2011 in Randomly | Comments (1)

If anyone has been watching the news lately, then you may have heard about Terry W. Thompson.  Terry had his own little exotic animal “zoo” at his house.  He kept 56 exotic animals in cages, most of which he raised from their bottle feeding stages.  On October 18, Terry let loose all of his animals to roam around Zanesville, Ohio. After the animals were released, he then committed suicide.  I feel as though he would do it all over again if he found out what happened to his animals.

Forty nine of his animals were cornered and then were shot by the police department.

17 lions were shot to death.

6 Black bears were shot to death.

3 Mountain lions were shot to death.

2 Grizzly bears were shot to death.

2 wolves were shot to death.

1 baboon was shot to death.

18 Bengal tigers were shot to death.  They are an endangered species.

I don’t know what the law enforcement officers were thinking and honestly don’t care to know.  I know that these were dangerous animals roaming around, but if you are a law enforcement officer in a state that has loose exotic pet laws, tranquilizer darts should be common around the station just in case something like this were to happen.

It just erks me that these were 49 animals that had no idea what was happening, had no intentions on hurting anyone and they were killed because a human had them caged, and let them loose into “our” world.

When I heard about this ordeal, I actually thought I thought maybe they would reproduce and Tigers would roam freely around the United States.  This didn’t happen though, instead us humans thought of worst case scenarios and did what we do best when we are scared, we harm someone something.  In this case the something was 49 scared animals.

I hate to think that some of these officers enjoyed this “hunting”.

18 Game of the Year contenders already released

admin | October 6, 2011 in Gaming | Comments (0)

Here is a long list of games that have already come out, that will most certainly be in the running for Game of the Year aways.  While they won’t all be in the running for THE game of the year, but they are definitely the best in their certain genres.  There is no Superman 64 type game on this list for sure.

 

Littlebigplanet 2- Littlebigplanet 2 added so much to the series, they allowed players to do so much more with their game and really make the games they envisioned.  It was amazing to see a developer selling a game that gives players such advanced tools for level customization.  This game most certainly pushed game customization to the next level.

Dead Space 2- This is the one game I always suggest people should buy if they haven’t played it, and I always have those people come back and tell me “holy hell that was an amazing game.”  It has fun online and a frantic, creepy and visceral single player.  If you haven’t checked it out yet and enjoy horror games, you should really give it a shot.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3- Everyone loves a good fighting game, and everyone loves MvC 2.  So what a better release for us fans that MvC3?  The good thing about this game was that it didn’t throw away what made MvC 2 a great game.  The developers really listened to what fans wanted in a fighter and delivered for sure.  It features smooth gameplay, and really competitive fighting.

Crysis 2- Crysis used to be known as the game you played just to see if your computer was faster than hell.  Now we know Crysis 2 as a top notch shooter that included an amazing story.  Let us not forget the fun as hell mutliplayer.  While it did borrow a bit from games like CoD and Halo, it was still really fun.

Total War: Shogun 2- If this game doesn’t win for the best RTSish type game of the year, I will really be disappointed.  I played this game for a couple weeks straight and fell in love with it.  It has beautiful graphics, and amazing battles.  If you have a PC, which is pretty much all of you reading this, then you should check this game out.  It really lets you feel like you are in control of a super bad-ass samurai type army.

Portal 2- This is the game that got me to write this list.  I feel as though everyone forgot about this game, which is what usually happens to games that release early in the year, everyone is just looking forward toward the releases at the end of the year.  But Portal 2, every time I play through it, always brings a smile to my face.  It is such an amazing game that involves puzzles, emotion, and humor.  This is the one game that had me actually laughing out loud, and I would say it’s one of the funniest games I have played in a while.  It’s safe to say that this is a game of the year contender.

La Noire- Seriously, what a beautiful game.  It features amazing characters, an engrossing story and new way to play a game.  When people heard that Rockstar was releasing a game, they all though “Yes! I can run around and bang hookers and shoot crap!”. Nope. This game was an incredible detective game that let you take another role that you never play in video games.  You were looking for clues, and not by point and click, but by actually searching for them.  And the most important thing, which is what makes it different than all those other CSI type games, was the interrogations.  Nothing was more emotional that interrogating a witness or victim and trying to decide if they were lying or telling the truth.  A true masterpiece.

Dirt 3- For racer of the year, it will either go to Dirt 3, Forza 4, or the new Need for Speed.  I loved this game just because I particularly enjoy rally racing and think that they really took this game back to the right direction.  I honestly hated what they did with Dirt 2, making it a pure X-game game.  They went more towards the spirit of what rally racing really is, and I really enjoyed that.  But what makes this game viable for racer of the year is the racing itself.  If you have played it, you know what I am talking about.  It is one of the smoothest and most adrenaline filled racers out there.

Terraria- One of the top indie games for sure.  Take the idea of Minecraft, and pump it full of 2d steroids and you have Terraria.  From the quests to crafting they really did do the genre justice, whatever that genre Notch created is anyways.  If you haven’t played this game, check it out, it’s a cheap game on Steam and deserves your attention.  I can spend hours mining on this game and going further along the game.

Infamous 2- The sequel to Infamous (duh), Infamous 2 is great game.  It seemed that they really got it right this time.  Infamous seemed a bit too slow and you felt like you weren’t a super hero guy really.  In Infamous 2, you really get to feel like you are a hero, or villain.  They smoothed out and sped up the gameplay and gave you powers that really did damage and made you feel like you are a super hero/villain.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3d- Do I need to really say anything about this game? We all know the original was amazing and they made it even more amazing with this 3d release.  Everything that could have been improved was, but they didn’t do it to the extent to where the charm of the game was taken away.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution- You like shooters?  You like RPG’s?  Well here is your game, Deus Ex.  This game featured great graphics, awesome abilities and possibilities out the wazoo.  You could be a level in so many freakin’ ways it was ridiculous.  Deus Ex allowed players to really play they wanted to.  If they wanted to be stealthy, go for it, you can beat the game entirely by being stealthy.  If you want to fill everything with holes, by all means, fill everything with holes.  And it doesn’t even stop there, you could be a hacker, etc etc and you could even just be a hybrid.

Dead Island- I loved this game before it even came out, and a whole bunch of you did as well after seeing the trailer.  The trailer, however, wasn’t what pulled me in, it was the idea of the game.  Dead Island is an open world, zombie survival game.  This game is the epitome of zombie games.  Yes, it has it’s flaws, but damn it does so much right.

Gears of War 3- Haven’t touched the game, and I hate the series but I know that this will be up for some awards at the end of the year.  Everyone so far has told me it’s amazing, but it just ain’t my cup of tea.  I include it because I’m not going to be biased just because I haven’t played the game or don’t enjoy the series, it’s on here because it’s a good game and is enjoyed by a lot of you readers.

Fifa Soccer 12- Arguably one of the best sports games released to date.  The Fifa series always seems to innovate and make gameplay better and better each year.  Even if you aren’t a soccer/football fan, you should play this game.  It is truly addictive and gains fans every day.

Now I know Dark Souls and Rage have just been released, but I have yet to get word on them or play them.  Rage is sitting on my counter, however, and I will give a review of some sort soon.


Shooting Guns Crashes BF3 Servers

admin | October 3, 2011 in Gaming | Comments (0)

I just found out that if you shoot your gun you can actually crash the server.  You do this by equipping an assault rifle(this should work with all guns), going to EA’s server room and spraying your entire clip into the servers.  This should crash the the servers.

I am in no way saying you should do this, but you should stop bitching about the beta and realize that it’s a beta and there will always be problems.  That’s why it’s for testing.

 


Top 5 worst types of fanboys

admin | in Gaming | Comments (1)

If there is one group of people I hate in this world besides hipsters, it’s whiny fanboys.  This is a quick list of types of fanboys that just grind my gears.

5.Call of Duty Fanboys- You know exactly who this is.  It’s a 20-something year old guy that is a total bro.  He doesn’t play any other games other than Madden and CoD.  You tell him to try this new really good game and no matter what, you get back “nah bro, it’s not as good as CoD.  CoD is the best.”  And when I type CoD, that’s actually how they talk.  They say it like the fish, cod.

4.Sony Fanboys- Alright, I love my PS3, I think it’s a great system but I wouldn’t say it’s the best. Both the 360 and PS3 have their ups and downs.  Sony Fanboys on the other hand will be the first to tell you that you are wrong about everything you just said and that the PS3 is the best.  Why?  Free online, better exclusives and isn’t run by evil Microsoft.  Well apparently these douches haven’t dealt with Sony before, because I have and I will say it, Sony is full of a lot of douchers and they do screw over a lot of people.  Now I know these fanboys are going to be like “well why aren’t 360 fanboys on the list?  You’re a 360 fanboy!”  I am not, I just never see 360 fanboys, ever.

3.J-RPG Fanboys- Black shirt, black pants and fingerless gloves.  That is the usual J-RPG fanboy.  I have met some high class ones before, but for the most part J-rpg fanboys are the weirdest fucking guys you will ever meet.  I love my J-rpg’s don’t get me wrong but these guys take it to a whole ‘nother level.  They have posters of their favorite characters in their room, and have the dolls and everything.  They will also be the first to tell you that the west makes shitty games and could never make a game like the east can.  Well to that I say, fuck you, 11.11.11.

2.Nintendo Fanboys- These dudes can be really fun or really creepy.  They are usually older guys who grew up with Nintendo, which is understandable but then you have these oblivious kids that love Nintendo no matter what.  It’s like they live in a bubble and don’t know what else is out there.  I have actually seen one of these fanboys burst out of his bubble and realize what is out there.  It was like watching a birthing happening, but without the gross.

1.PC Fanboys- Alright PC fanboys, you guys are fucking annoying.  You are the most difficult people to please and will be the first to say that this corporation is screwing them over and that this new game is garbage and will never be like the last one.  These guys are like the hipsters of the video game world, they play games that are so underground, you’ve never heard of them or their developers.  My pc is my favorite gaming system, but these guys have the biggest raging nerd ego’s ever.  Just calm down.
