whovians

It is that time once again. For all of the Whovians to come out and celebrate Christmas with another Dr. Who Christmas Special. This one will be epic. Why well if you know from the last episode Amy and Rory was killed by the weeping angels. A very epic episode. So we all know that coming to this episode the Dr. will not be a happy camper. Check out this trailer for the upcoming special today.

So as you know only Dr. Who can take something we all love and treasure and make it scary as hell. So as you can see they will be introducing a new companion and also from reading the blog on BBC one website a new look for the tardis. Epic stuff. Right now in great fashion on BBC One right they are doing their Dr. Who countdown and showing all the favorite Dr. Who Christmas Specials. Here is a little nugget I found on youtube. It is a prequel to the Christmas Special that is coming up.

 

 

God of War Ascension Multiplayer Beta impressions

2012-12-22 12.21.33

Funny thing about loafing on the internet you stumbled upon some cool things. While checking on IGN I came across one of their ads. It said to me that if I want a beta key for the closed beta. Usually I don’t click on ads but was curious about it. So I clicked it and was brought to the login screen for IGN. So I decided to use my account for IGN and like magic the key was presented to me. Just like that I got my beta key. No long email list. No pre-order was necessary.

So after downloading the game I was presented with an update.

2012-12-22 10.30.57

So after all that downloading I finally get to play the game.
2012-12-22 10.28.16
Now this is just a beta and I really feel like the character models are very polished. You begin by choosing your alliance. After choosing your alliance they give you a tutorial on how to fight. Now I see they have the basic combat types. You have the counter or parry move. You have the offensive attacks. Then also the defensive moves. So after I got all that sort out I went straight to the quick play to get my fight on.
So the menu is a lil bit laggy. I forgive it because know this is a beta. I can see the progression will add a more personal touch to your character. The only thing that can make or break this game is the match ups. Being put in a room full of people who have better gear can lead to a massacre. No matter how good you are the buffs on the higher class weapons will always triumph. That said I died alot. I did manage to get in some kills but the end result was always me losing. I can see that can push people to be better but the match system should put noobs with noobs. That way there is some kind of balance. Another thing that I felt was troubling was the chaos of the matches. I felt like I was playing All Star Battle Royal almost.
The level of strategy is there. Parrying and using special moves effectively will lead to a victory if paired with the same level opponent.
All in all I feel that this could be more of an after thought within the game. I never thought the God of War series would try to venture in this area but they did. I don’t feel it will be a home run option that could sell the game but luckily for them they have a solid single player portion to fall back on. So until that time hopefully the end product will be more balanced and polished.
If you want to try this beta out head over here and get your key via IGN.

Naruto Shippuuden 294 Review

vlcsnap-2012-12-20-09h11m10s226

Another great “Power” episode. Can someone please shake the writers hand. Cause this is what I love. Great action and mystery. So let me get my chop sticks ready cause this was some good ramen.

So we begin with the traitor explaining why he did it. I mean why the ones that crave power always have to be crazy. For once I want to find an intelligent psycho maniac that isn’t hell bent on destroying the world. I mean when you destroy it where would you be when that happens. I guess they never think things through properly. So while Naruto being held by snakes that consumes chakra was listening to the conversation and you know he was pissed. So when he got angry the snakes would squeeze much tighter. So you know he was in a bind. Cause he full of chakra buddy.

Just then the brats came along. Now this is the stuff I don’t like. You know any other normal child would of stayed dem tail home and wait for the man to come home. No these fools gone down there buh dem gonna save the fat man. Kabatu done sense them and used his shadow clone to do a trade. The sound keys for the fat man. Well that was a dumb idea. Give the crack head for power the key to obtain the power of destruction. Which make saving the fat man useless cause now all of yall gonna die. Lucky for them the ninjas from the Hidden Leaf village was near by and saw the whole thing going down. So after the trade we all know what happens next. Things are about to get real.

Now this thing look like something from Stargate. I wouldn’t be amazed to see something like a wormhole appear and Naruto from another universe with a missing eye fly through. So this is an interesting moment. Naruto realized that the snakes consumes chakra and immediately went into sage mode. As he did that the snakes absorbing the chakra became frogs. Look how my boy is maturing. Using the brain God gave him. So while he was doing that the ninjas from the hidden leaf village are confronting Kabatu and the traitor. I won’t lie when I saw all those coffins popping up I knew this would be a battle to contend with. Then out of nowhere these snakes came out the ground. Then he opened his mouth.

Not the nine tails clone again!!! So you know what going through these man mind. So like a real “G” my boy Naruto who done free up from the snakes shouted for the noob clone. Like a pimp Hinata and Sakura all shouted his name. I wish Naruto would just open his eyes and just pick Hinita as his girl. Anyway I loved the fighting between Naruto and the clone. He was all Mr. Miyagi.

vlcsnap-2012-12-20-09h23m38s58

fgwivHh8He was like Wax On. Wax Off. I am the boot and you are the ant. He totally pwned that fool. Then as he was getting licks the snakes that formed him started to fall off. The same happened for the rest of the reanimated clones. Right there we see how the Jutsu still wasn’t perfected. Jsut then we have the traitor was being held by Yamato. Then this crack head ram his head on the control center and then all hell broke loose. We then have the cloud of death dressed across the village. Then while Naruto and the clone was fighting he fell in the pit of the platform they were fighting on. With the distraction of doom in the air the traitor started running up the alien tower to get the “power”. Now dude if these people kept this thing under wraps is for a reason. I mean when you have something that can destroy the world you wouldn’t want it being used all the time. I thought it would of been smart to destroy the key rendering it useless but I wouldn’t be here writing about this epic episode. So anyhow as he was running up there he was greeted with our very own neighborhood spiderman Naruto. I was hoping Naruto would give him the Sparta kick. You know be like “This is SHIPPUUDEN!!!!” But they started to chat. Epic fail. Just as they was chatting a very loud roar came from the pit the clone fell in.

Yeah this is what happens when you fall in a pink pit. You become a flaming hydra. So like all the power episodes they stop it right there. They said in the previews that the next episode will be the last power episode. Then we will be back to the main arch of the great ninja war. I won’t lie I totally forgot about that. Just enjoying this very deep fluff episode. So till the next episode stay frosty!!

This has to be the busiest man in the fighting community that I know. If he ain’t mixing it up with the VGX crew he doing it real large on the online tournaments. Who am I talking about. The one and only Cardiff aka Craigbot. Gonna make a shirt for this man when he go to the next VGX game tournament. Cause I KNOW HE WINNING IT IN 2013! So what have he been doing. Well nothing much but just KICKING BUTT and taking names!!! HE came in 3rd place for an online tournament for VF5 (Virtua Fighter 5). The same game I got pwned at when we held our NBA Jam Tournament recently.

So any way Cardiff been posting the scores and the games he played. I will link you to some but I want to first commend him for actually doing the thing. Most gamers claim to be the best but when the time come to put action behind the words they choke. Not the craigbot. He bring it like a fat kid about to eat cake. With no napkins!! Here what he said about the tournament from facebook.

I’ve made to the Finals of the Major, I was ready to go in there and do my thing. I came 3rd place in the Major, not too bad. Next time, I’ll go for 1st place. As a result, I also place 3rd place for receiving Madcatz prizes, which is just awesome. I entered the VFDC Circuit: Season 1 in September and ended up in 3rd for the America East Division. Now that it’s over, Season 2 will start sometime in March 2013, so I get a break, but training never stops with any fighting game you play.

What I tell you bout this man. I hope VGX ready for this man cause when we rolling through we taking everything. Even the bag of cheetos!!

Here is the December brackets for the VF5 Tournament.

Not to mention they was holding it down!!! I mean it. They was beating dudes like rain. Some was even acting the fool!! Trust me I was even shocked to hear them trash talking and ting.
