Black Ops 2: The Rundown

So like a period Activision is hitting us up with Black Ops 2. Now most of us seen the E3 trailer and was very saddened. Most fanboys was over joyed that another beloved Ops was coming. I mean really. You didn’t see that coming. But anywho I checked all over the net to bring all the confirmed info that we can expect from this upcoming title. Now let me get this out of the way. I am not a huge fan of Ops. After migrating to Bad Company 2 I never really looked much further. I am hoping that they bring Bad Company 3 soon. Loved part 2.

Focus:

  • You can shoot while sprinting.
  • Focus Pro: You can shoot while jumping.
  • Focus Elite: with ‘Stalker’ you will get lower damage from equipments.
I am not a fan of most of these perks. This will be another fine example of a game where perks and over powered guns will be the main issue. Hopefully they will be tweaking the game with patches. The same way most people stopped playing MW3 for BF3 is because of the input lag and unbalanced guns. So you know many Black Ops fanboys love the zombie mode. So of course they will deliver. From what I suspect they will make this the best Zombie mode to date.
Confirmed Info about Black ops 2 zombies:
  • 8 player Co-op and 4 Vs 4 Team matches.
  • Maps will be bigger.
  • There will be female characters.
I will be doing a comparison blog with the upcoming heavy hitter Medal of Honor Warfighter. In my opinion after watching the trailer for Black Ops 2 I can see the age of the engine. Only time will tell if the Call of Duty name can save this game.

Memefield 3 Episode 2 = FUNNY STUFF

This dude is awesome funny!! Check out the other episodes!!

Live Action Naruto Film!!

Ok So it is fan made but my boy Cassin linked me to it. Awesome find. I am impressed!!

Naruto will never End. Ever.

So My fellow Naruto Fanboys we have to brace ourselves. The winter time is coming. I mean if the Zetsu clones aren’t enough and the dead coming back to life didn’t get your nands going this will. I saw over on AnimeShinbun about an interview with the creator of Naruto. Here is the Q and A.

Question: Let us ask you something about your exciting work, that is so greatly admired. Has the end of Naruto already been decided?
Kishimoto-sensei:
 Not everything is set in stone just yet. For example, I haven’t decided on the events that lead to the end, but the end itself has been decided pretty clearly. So from here on out it will just be a matter of running towards that point.

Question: In that case, do you have in mind how the very last volume will flow?
Kishimoto-sensei: 
No, you won’t be able to read something like that just yet (laugh). The story really hasn’t progressed as much as I was expecting. About three years ago, at Jump Festa, I said that I would give Kakashi more to do in the manga. However, I still haven’t been able to do that. Honestly, I myself don’t know how much it will take. Nishio-san, who takes care of the character designs for the anime, also asked me for how long the story would continue and I answered “About one year and a half”. But it seems like it will take longer than that.

Question: Can we expect any more surprises?
Kishimoto-sensei: 
There are still quite a few. Some characters who originally weren’t going to appear will come up again. And then, well, things are going to get exciting with Naruto, so please give me your support.

Question: Is there any material that you weren’t able to include in this year’s movie?
Kishimoto-sensei: 
I intended to include all of the things that were inside my head. It’s just that I also have some novel ideas. There is some material that I probably won’t be able to insert in the original work, but if I get the okay of the editorial department, secretly I’d like to include it somewhere, like in a non-serialized story. Some suspenseful developments, the details are a secret, but there are many challenges that I’d like to face.

So there you have it. He is gonna milk that bad boy till it pumping powder. I see many fillers to come. With a little bit of sweet goodies in between. So With the next episode to air soon being a Sakura filler episode what else can they stuff in there. I would like to see Kakashi face. Ah well time to pack a blanket and lots of ramen. The winter is coming. Oh if you want to see more of this convo here is the link.

Nia Bingie the Mic Killer!!

 

Not only is Bingie a killer in MW3. He is a killer on the Mic!!!

Google Chromebook Review

So far this chromebook is everything I need for keeping organized both online and offline. It helps me become more productive by allowing me to sync seamless with all my devices. It didn’t hurt that I own an Android phone. The real test will begin when  I start work.

Offline
So far the offline apps work without a hitch. Right now I am typing this message offline. Giving me the ability to still be able to work without the use of the all mighty internet. Hopefully the BVI will have their 3G service up and running so I can be totally independent from using the WiFi.
Real World Test
Working in the IT field I depend heavily on network and the cloud. Writing notes using the scratchpad is very useful. It also backs up to Google Drive once I am online. Living in the BVI there isn’t much “hotspots” . So when I really need to get online I would use my HTC One X Android phone as a Wireless Hotspot. Although using Edge for a hotspot the Chromebook automatically compensate by loading the main parts of the Website.
Now let me be clear. The Chromebook can not and will not replace your main PC. The Chromebook is very limited. Although it can not do all the different things your normal Windows or Mac PC can do it will allow you to be more efficient on the cloud and web. My problem with the Chromebook is that it does not allow you to modify the network. For example the issuing a static IP address is very hard. Unless there is DHCP on the network you can not assign the static IP address.
For everyday use I can see the Chromebook being great for the children. As far as the apps goes I feel that they are really weak. There are a few great apps but mostly Web Portals to the site. A real App would be on the lines of Angry Birds. If Google want to make the Chromebook an even better machine they should work on some offline apps. As of now it is borderline usable.
The make of it is what I would expect from Samsung. Very sturdy. I would say it look like a Macbook Air. Just a little fatter. With the Intel Core Processor and 4gb of RAM she moves very smoothly. Playing 1080p movies is not a problem.
If I was to give this a score it would be a 3 out of 5. Not a bad machine but not something for the pro gamer or graphic designer. Here is some shots of what you may find in the box.
