Naruto Shippuuden 291 Review

I love the smell of a new Naruto Episode in the morning. This one is a continuation of the Power Episodes. So lets get into it.

This episode was not only interesting but got my spidey sense tingling. First off it picked up right where I wanted it to begin. Naruto being pulled under by the huge snake. He used his shadow clone jutsu to multiply inside the snake stomach then rushed up to the surface. Now while he is swimming frantically to the top he digested some of the water. Just then Kabuto sense that his “babies” found a new home. Inside Naruto. Then he also realized what Naruto limit is. I guess he need him to dive for him or something. So what I liked about this part of the animation was it looked like they added some CG snakes. Look like Naruto getting some digital love.

So after he got the data he needed as usual he ran away. For once I would love to see them just kill this dude. But that can never happen. Well not yet. So after that fight they realized what they are up against and started to do some homework. Now there is a part where they explain the back story behind the Teddy Bear Sensei and the sexy ninja lady. I mean she look nice even with the scars. Totally loved the bath scene with the ladies. What was very interesting is that everytime Naruto either dose off or slept he saw snakes invading his body. Also we see that the little girl is psychic. She displayed this power when Naruto went to shake her hand. She saw a snake jumping out at her. Also I think she is linked to the Evil that is in the lake somehow. Another interesting thing that had me geeking out was the epic messenger app on the scroll Kabato was using. Looked like Kabato was using Facetime on his iScroll. I think he was talking to “Tobi” aka Obito.

Another great episode for this series. I am totally geeking out for the next episode where see that the invasion in Naruto body will manifest itself and cause some serious problems for his friends. Even showed us the little girl telling the snakes to come out. I mean Naruto already got the Nine tails in there. Poor boy is like a walking hotel for stuff lol. So till the next time stay frosty!

Carib Gamer Vlog Ep. 2

So if you didn’t know what is hot on PSN right now then something is wrong. So if you on BF3 and have the premium service what are you waiting for! Get cracking!! Keep it locked for more great episodes from the Caribgamer Blake!!

BF3 Aftermath Drama

So here in the British Virgin Islands I was waiting in anticipation for the new Aftermath DLC. After the very huge update patch I checked the Server browser for a match. I jumped in the Aftermath Server match and to my surprise got kicked right out. For some weird reason I don’t have the maps. So now here I thought that Dice learnt their lesson from the last map pack and would of given us the whole kitten and kaboodle. I was wrong. So frantically I jumped over to PSN to see if I have to download the new map pack. Then I was asked to update the PSN store. Um Ok no prob. After a small update I went straight to search and looked for Aftermath. To my surprise only thing that had Aftermath was Resistance 2.

Now I knew from my experience that we had to wait for the PSN store to update before we can get the new DLC. Which in my opinion sucks. Cause when you really check it out on the servers you find people are playing. Some are even uploading pics of how awesome the game is. Some are complaining about the missing floors and other minor glitches. I want to be one of those people complaining. So we have to wait after 6 or 7 pm before the updated PSN store comes live. Well I started my download of this new DLC. Unlike my fellow americans with their fast download speeds I have to wait a few hours to download this DLC.

So if you are like me and cheering your progress bar to reach the end then sit back and catch up on the latest episode of Walking Dead or something. I already know I will be burning the midnight oil with this game. I done see Dice want to be messing with my M5K like dem own it. No worries I will be running this game hard like a bad ting. Oh also if you don’t check Battlelog there is a new Dog Tag that you can use. There was a challenge given to us to reach 6.66 million base captures. Now I am not one of those conspiracy theorist but why (6.66) million. Why not 6.78 or something. Anyway this is what we got for contributing to the mark of the beast award.

 

Thanks to our entire community for pulling all the plugs in our latest dog tag challenge! You all worked together on all three platforms to successfully achieve a massive 6.66 million base captures in Armored Kill!

Only because I love trolling I am gonna be sporting this. I won’t lie I am kinda digging the BF3 community. It is much better than the COD community. Not dissing their flat graphics and unrealistic gameplay but I think the next COD would have to do something pretty epic to even compete with BF3. I won’t even talk about BF4. Hopefully they don’t mess up the good thing they have right now. So anyway gonna play some Final Fantasy 7 on my Vita till this update comes through. Will be dropping my own mini review of the maps and the new game modes once I find time away from it.

BF3 Update PS3 11/27/12

So the time has come for the usual suspects. The time when players from the ever so famous BF3 game check out what Dice nerfed or fixed. So here are the patch notes for the next big update for the Aftermath DLC which will be dropping 11/27/12 for premium players.

We have been busy making some welcome fixes for our PlayStation 3 players, fine tuning a lot of weapons based on your feedback, and tweaking some gameplay mechanics. This update goes live November 27 on consoles, and no later than December 4 on PC. Full details below, including how to download this essential multiplayer update once it is live on your platform.

1) Addressed “input lag” on PS3
If you have been experiencing “input lag” playing Battlefield 3 on PlayStation 3, we now believe we have significantly improved this situation for all players.

2) Improved audio stability on PS3
The audio dropouts reported by some PlayStation 3 gamers playing Battlefield 3 should now be fixed for the majority of players .

3) Weapons balancing
Based on detailed community feedback and data analysis we have made some minor weapon tweaks to recoil and accuracy. The goal of these tweaks, and the overall goal in Battlefield 3, is to give each weapon a unique feel and competitive performance to other weapons of a similar type.

M416: First shot and horizontal recoil slightly increased. This should make the choice between M16 and M416 more interesting again.

L85A2: Slightly reduced horizontal recoil.

AUG: first shot recoil slightly to increase weapon controllability.

FAMAS: Slightly reduced horizontal recoil.

G53: Vertical recoil reduced to make this weapon more controllable.

QBZ-95B: Slightly reduced horizontal recoil.

LSAT: Hip accuracy has been increased to highlight the weapon’s role as a highly mobile LMG.

Type88 LMG: Recoil has been decreased to make it a viable option when compared to the M249.

M5K: Increased horizontal recoil and decreased vertical recoil to focus this weapon as a high damage, low control PDW.

UMP45: Decreased fully automatic fire to differentiate this weapon from the PP2000.

MP412: Increased its accuracy to better distinguish it from the .44 Magnum.

M26: Increased aimed accuracy to be in line with the other shotguns.

4) Weapons bug fixes
Fixed the MTAR’s range not being correctly reduced when equipped with the sound suppressor.

Fixed a bug where suppressive fire had reduced effect on the M16 and M5K when compared with other weapons.

Fixed a bug where the M5K’s Flash Suppressor had no effect on accuracy.

Fixed the L86A2 Heavy Barrel’s hip accuracy penalty being far larger than other weapons.

Fixed an issue with the Mk3 shotgun’s ACOG being low resolution.

5) M-COM disarm fix
Fixed an issue where M-COM stations couldn’t be disarmed from the left side while standing up.

6) Alborz Mountains rock fix
Rocks and stones collision tweaked on Armored Kill maps. Players should no longer be able to exploit a collision issue that allowed them to hide inside rock formations.

7) Operation Shield/Alborz Mountains Tank Superiority area fix
Tank Superiority visual combat areas fixed on Operation Shield and Alborz Mountains. There was earlier a 10×10 meter patch on the mountain that became out of combat for US. This was technically already fixed server side, however this will update the actual visuals to be correct.

8) Death Valley collision fix
Collision tweaked on the railroad tunnel roof. This fix prevents players from being able to hide inside the railroad tunnel roof.

9) Sharqi Squad Rush spawn fix
Players would sometimes spawn out of combat if spawning shortly after the first M-COM explodes on Squad Rush on Sharqi Peninsula. With this fix, spawn points have been moved back to prevent this from happening.

10) Alborz Mountains Squad Rush fix
Cameras were incorrect in the spawn menu, pointing to old locations and not where you would actually spawn in. This has now been fixed.

11) Gunship balancing changes
We have now removed the gunship FLIR view (the position is still available, just not the black/white view) and decreased the damage radius of cannon explosions. This was done because of balancing reasons. Previously it was too easy for the gunner to get visual contact on enemy soldiers on the maps, and the splash damage is reduced to make it harder to kill infantry from the cannon seat.

12) Mobile Artillery spawn bug fixed
Two players can no longer spawn into the Mobile Artillery. This was a spawn-in-menu bug on the Operation Shield map which has now been fixed.

13) Tweaked hard to get medals
Looking at the persistence system, we could see that a number of the hard to get medals were actually too hard to achieve (in our opinion based on our intended design). While we never meant for all medals to have an equal distribution, the hardest ones were still intended to be more achievable than they have proven to be so far. Therefore, we have slightly decreased the prerequisites to achieve a number of the hardest to get medals in the game. One positive side effect (if you like playing Recon) is that we will likely see a slight bump in the Recon kit’s average Score Per Minute overall.

I for one am happy for the audio fix for the PS3. Not to happy about the HUGE nerf on my favorite gun, the M5K. Ah well such is life. Will just roll with the punches and see if I can adjust to the new changes. I am always impressed on the feedback the boys at BF3 has with the community. I think that is the reason why the game is getting better everyday. For a  year old game it still have the pull of a brand new game. Also with each update it just gets better and better.

Naruto Shippuuden 290 Review!!!

 

This was the best filler episode I have seen in a long time!!! This is why I love Naruto. They can even make the fillers entertaining.

 

Gonna dig right into it. We start off like usual. Naruto goes on a very important S class mission. The Hokagae fills them in while explaining that forces are spread thin. With the grave yard robberies and other perils causing concern.

So the newly formed team 7 go off to see what the problem is. Now as Naruto and Sakura took a pause by the pond. Naruto takes a mouthful of water and happily enjoys the taste. While Sakura admires how serine and beautiful the pond is. Kabatu adds his 2 cent by saying he agrees. Now if you know anything about the Narutoverse this dude is Trouble. I call him Orichimaru boyfriend. So anyway Naruto goes into kill mode one shot. Rasengan in he tank. Kabuto jumps out of the way. Then starts to talk. Now I don’t know why Naruto let him actually open his mouth but eh…. Sakura assume he had something to with the village being burned down and attacked. Kabuto smiled and explained why he did it. The pond have millions of  orichimaru cells. Yes. This botty bwoy have de man dem cell in de water. IDIOT TING DAT!!! The same water Naruto drink had orichimaru cells. Anyway he explains that the water allow him to make “life” from dead corpse. Here we see him using the reanimation Jutsu for the first time. He brings one from the water and then say that he didn’t come alone. That is when Yamato and Sai came true. Then all hell broke loose.

Kabatu called up all the dead people he dig up. I mean this man really like man. Digging up people. So you know Team 7 went to town. Sakutra is a beast. It is like once she touch you it done. One fist demolish the man face. Then as we know already they don’t die. Cause dem is hybrid zombies lol. Naruto is now attacking Kabatu head on. But some black snake grabs him and takes him to the bottom of the lake. Then all of a sudden as he begins to loose his breath we see this image.

 

Now I won’t lie. I thought I downloaded a bad anime episode. Was like what kinda Evangelion episode cross up thing I have here. So I was tempted to fast forward it when I see the episode turn away from Naruto to this scene.

Now I was like um….ok. Then as the episode continued I realized they went further back. Yes they gave us a flash back within the filler episode. Not only are we awaiting to see what would happen to Naruto but now been given another back story. Epic stuff. Cause as the fight was going on Kabuto was concerned that not all of his Hybrid Zombies came back to life to fight. He thought to himself that the jutsu isn’t complete. So I guess this back story of the village before it got burned down would help us understand why Kabuto want that whole area to himself. What secrets lie underneath that pond? The whole story seem to me an explanation on how Kabuto eventually got the full transformation. You know become one with his master. Even when I say it the thing sound just Justin Bieber gay. Not hating on the artist just using him as a scale on how weird that is. Watching the villagers fight for their lives and doing what they can to defend their home was touching. I know…..totally had an oprah winfrey moment there.

I really enjoyed this episode. Can’t wait to see part 2. Maybe we get to see how Kabatu finish the Jutsu and get that green thing that has power. Maybe we will understand more about this reanimation Jutsu. Seeing that today is Thanksgiving and many people are enjoying turkey and ham we in the BVI don’t celebrate the american holiday but all over the world there is one thing that we all can look forward to. To sit down together and WATCH NARUTO ON THURSDAY!!!!!! I like to call it RAMEN THURSDAY!!! WOOT!!! So till the next episode stay frosty!!

 

 

BF3 New Weapon New Map DLC 11.27.12 Aftermath!

So fellow Premium BF3 players guess what is coming to us very soon. The fourth DLC installment in the BF3 series. Aftermath. With Call of Duty Black Ops 2 selling hotter than crack one would think that BF3 would be showing some age. Not this game. Just gets better everyday! The cross bow will add another depth to the game. Most likely if you are playing BF3 you are probably not playing Blops 2. So just like Armored Kill expect a bumpy roll out. The last time the new DLC dropped there was a minor issue downloading it. Hopefully they learned from their mistakes. If you don’t know also on the Battlelog website there are some cool wallpapers to download. So go on and get urs like I got mines. Here is one to wet ur lips with.
