Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving a day Native Americans and Pilgrims sat together in peace and harmony and ate Perdue or Shady Brook Farms oven buster Turkeys, Cranberry sauce that slid out of the can like dog food, stuffing made with at least 2 whole sticks of Land O' Lakes Butter, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffed Mushrooms,  Enteman's Coconut Custard Pie and washed it down with a frosty Sam Adams or Milwaukee's Best. Then the Native American and pilgrim men rolled themselves into the living room to watch football or play Call of Duty: Ghost while the women cleaned the kitchen.
Later the fella's slipped into a food coma while the women sat around in the kitchen and complained incessantly....
And thus an American holiday was born!

1 Step Forward 2 Steps Back

So some of my friends have jumped on the next gen (now current gen) bandwagon and bought PS4's, I am sitting on a backlog of games I still want to start and or complete before moving on up to a deluxe console in the sky. LAst week I plucked down $20 on my PSN account and picked up a couple things, first I picked Legend of Mana, this gem from the PS1 era...hence 2 steps back. I had bought this game back in 2000...13+ years ago....DAMN that makes me feel old! And when I played it then I was kinda disapointed, I guess I was looking for something more akin to the original, Secret of Mana.


Which happened to be my very first RPG I ever played. The game is gorgeous which is truly a testament to it's quality visually and audibly...I find myself retreating from the chaos of GTA V and the frustration of trying to get back in fighting shape for USFIV with SSFIV AE with this 13 year old gem!
And it was only $5.99! So while my friends are rushing head first into the new gen, I decide to go old school...



Next I bought the Okami HD dynamic theme that just came out....vurrry purdy!



If you're on my PSN friends list you know I have about six different Chun Li avatars I switch between on the regular plus some others like RDR, Hyper Dimension Neptunia, so I picked up one GTA V avatar....guess which one.

Being the nice guy I am I let my wife buy something on the PS Store, I figured she'd get some PS mini game like candy crush or something.....nope.
She bought this....

USFIV Supers & Ultra's revealed

Here's the video's of the Super's and Ultra's for Ultra Street Fighter IV. I'm not feeling the red focus and the Double Ultra's that were previously revealed by combofiend but what ever. I actually started playing AE again a week or two ago...amazing how fast you loose your mojo in this game! I've also been playing a little 3rd Strike with some guys from Unity. Next week we may get some HDR matches in also!

Almost Human S1E3 Are You Recieving recap

Just another day on Delta Division for John Kennex and DRN Dorian, alarm clocks, cold coffee, squeaky synthetic legs and a hostage crisis at the Nakatomi towers Sanderson Building!
The story was fairly basic but not only did we get our first bit of Star Wars fan service "Boring conversation anyways" but apparently Kennex has something in common with....Peter Bishop! They both fell into a frozen lake!
As I mentioned previously the chemistry between Karl Urban and Michael Ealy works well on screen and I like the two characters....the stories seem rather dull though....I hope we get something juicy soon. Something to hook me like an observer reveal...not that exactly but something in that style. Or perhaps a reveal that this is the alt universe created by the events in the Fringe finale, I'd be fine with that.

The Walking Dead: S4E7 Dead Weight recap

Just when he thought he was out, his past has dragged him back in....
Martinez pulls "Brian" from the pit and introduces him to HIS group. Martinez has 2 brothers under his command Mitch and Pete both military guys. They couldn't be more different and when The Governor goes on a second supply run with the 2 it dawned on me that they symbolized the angel and devil on his shoulders representing the conflict within the governor. And we see which path he choose to follow.....
And I may be reaching with my next train of thought but when the governor is telling Mitch the story about the stolen cigs after killing Pete, he's kinda admitting to killing his own brother...the hero.
Other noteworthy things in this episode is Martinez' death....I honestly thought Mitch was gonna be the first victim of the governor!
And the scene where Tara is sleeping in the arms of the other woman from Martinez' group.
Personally I think it'll take a miracle for lil Meghan to make it to the end of the season! She see's the governor as some type of father figure her aunt is terrible at hide and seek, and her mother seems pretty useless at this point.
I wonder if the prisons water supply comes from the lake zombie Pete is hanging around in?
Next week The Governor visits Casa del Prison with a Tank and Lilly shows she's as good at parenting as Lori was!

AquaPazza: Console Release Trailer

I've played a decent amount of fighting games in my life from Yae Ar Kung Fu to Time Killers and have pretty much stuck with Street Fighter throughout the years. Ive actually been interested in AquaPazza for about a year and I was happily surprised the other night when I was on the PS Store and saw that it had finally come stateside for $29.99!
I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about any of the characters but from past trailers 2 look like Ranka and Cheryl Nome from Macross Frontier...good enough for me. Plus having a Siberian tiger fight along side you!!! C'mon that's a heluva lot better than T Hawks lame ass eagle!
Maybe AquaPazza will make it to EVO2014...

Almost Human: First Impressions

So the show takes place in the year 2048, humans and androids coexist, crime has escalated at an alarming rate alongside technology.
The pilot episode was decent, I like Carl Urbans character. Detective John Kennex, he's obviously not a fan of synthetics. This is clearly demonstrated when he is partnered with an MX...that accidentally falls out of Kennex's car after a crime scene investigation. He is then assigned a new partner, a discontinued model...the DRN named Dorian. Unlike the MX's Dorian is eerily human....moreso than even Kennex himself!
The show is chock full of FX and definitely is inspired by Blade Runner to some degree, and it has the potential to also take inspiration from Ghost in the Shell S.A.C & 2nd gig....but we'll have to wait and see if that comes to fruition.
The second episode, "skin" Kennex and Dorian seemed much more likeable, there was plenty of laughs to offset the episodes story of human abduction to create human skin for sex bots.










So in my opinion the show has potential, interestingly enough my wife was very interested in this show also...she really enjoyed Fringe so I think she's hoping for more of that shows magic in Almost Human. Being that this is a Bad Robot Production I'm expecting a twist towards the end of season 1 and based on the pic to the left I'm gonna make a lil prediction, the real John Kennex is dead, and Det. Kennex is actually the next DRN model and it has no idea it's a synthetic human.
Yeah I know he had a nose bleed in the first episode...that can be easily explained away with a little sci fi mumbo jumbo. Also note Kennext and Dorian have almost identical proportions.

The Walking Dead S4 E6 Live Bait Recap

Tonight's episode is firmly in my top 3 favorite episodes of the show! This episode absolutely epitomizes the shows title, the walking dead! 
Can we come back? That appears to be one of the themes this season, redemption.
Tonight's episode is a testament to how great this show is, you take a man like the governor who's done such evil things and make you feel anything but detest is remarkable! 
I think Dr. Seuss would appreciate tonight's episode as TWD just retold how the grinch stole Christmas! 
Did Newt make the governors heart grow two sizes too big???
Best moment was the Governor shuffle! Side stepping that walker like a boss!











And on a closing note The Governor needs to bottle up that mojo and sell it at Macy's! Au D Gov...

The Walking Dead S4E5 Internment recap

Awesome episode last night!
Maggie to Rick "Where's Carol?"
I bet Rick wished he had a Twix at that moment!
Need A Minute? Chew on This!
Rick to Maggie, "Yeah she ain't comin' back...membership revoked on account of being a Stone Cold Killa"
Maggie, "Mkay, fence needs a fixin' "
Meanwhile Hershel's herbal tea doesn't seem to be helping...
In fact by the end of this episode 95% of the Woodbury population is dead!
And the safest person is probably the one furthest from the prison, Carol!
God Bless Hershel! He exemplifies the best in humanity when humanity is lost! And when shit got real in isolation I was yelling at the TV "Don't get scratched! Don't get bit! Hershel must live!"
Dr Caleb was right though, if you're not willing to lose 1 you'll lose them all and by golly we pretty much did...Glenn is one lucky son of a bitch as is Sasha!
Hershel has really been the unsung hero of this group in my opinion and Dammit if they kill Hershel, they're killing Santa Claus!!
Seeing Rick and Carl mow down the walkers that breached the fence was bittersweet...Carls not that dumb ass kid tossing rocks at Walkers stuck in mud any more, even Rick was in shock how well his son was doing with a full auto assault riffle!

The episode comes to a close just like how the season began with Rick walking down to the Zombie Farm, splashing water on his face and sharing peas with Carl.
But wait there's more!
Off in the distance, outside the perimeter at the edge of the woods...who's that!?
THE GOVERNOR!!!!
This just in...Michonne sucks at tracking!

Robocop 2014 trailer

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) - a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit - is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice. RoboCop Official Trailer #1 RoboCop Official Trailer #2

Sony's Greatness Exchange

You're 1 of 2 types of gamer, one that plays the game enjoys it and doesn't care about trophies...probably not a completionist. Or a Trophy Whore...someone who continues playing a game long past beating it to collect as many trophies as possible...since FFVII I've been a completionist....and when this generation introduced Trophies I liked the idea, being able to compare your progress against your friends....it sparks my competitive streak in me.
As of now the trophy system as been a sorta meta game that adds replayability to my games but now Sony is introducing the PlayStation greatness exchange
Here's how it works:

  1. Log into the above site 
  2. Use your gold trophies as sweepstakes entries. 1 Gold = 1 entry
  3. Once a gold trophy is used it cannot be used again in another sweepstakes
  4. Drawings are once every 24 hrs
  5. Gold trophies are not removed from your PSN account after use in a sweepstakes

The Walking Dead S4E4 Indifference recap

Hooray the Ricktatorship is one step closer to being a fraternity! Lori's dead, Andrea and her Sister are dead, Jacqui died....remember her? Carols daughter, Sophia is dead, Karen is toast and things aren't looking to bright for Sasha and now Story time arsonist Carol has been banished from club dead! And just when Lizzie had found a surrogate parent figure in Carol....bad choice kiddo.
So Daryl and his group are in the market for a new car and then off they go to Walker U to gather the meds, meanwhile Rick and Carol go on a field trip to a local suburb to also get medical supplies
What's that saying.....power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely...
It seems Carol has found an inner strength she never realized she had and has been doing what must be done, but Rick fears when Tyresse discovers she killed Karen he'll kill her. Carol explains her reasons but they seem to fall on deaf ears, as the two scavenge for meds they meet two red shirts Ana and Sam, Rick pops the three questions and explains their situation and the two offer to help in exchange for safe haven at the prison. It's here Rick and Carol again don't see eye to eye and the end result is Rick is out a watch and a gun!
Back at Zombie U Daryl confronts Bobby after discovering he has no meds just booz....OK who else beside me was hoping Daryl shoved Bobby off the ledge? So far Bobby has been as useless as tits on a bull!











The episode ends with Rick extinguishing Carol's torch and telling her she's been voted out of the prison!
I don't think this is the last we'll see of Carol....I have a sneaking suspicion she's gonna find ol one eye....

Here's a look at next weeks episode Internment, Caleb looks like me after an all night gaming session...

My Los Santos Picture Log Volume 5

My on going adventures in Los Santos continue! This week I bought the old dock at Paleto Cove for $250,000, and it comes with a submersible!










So I took my yellow submarine and collected all the nuclear waste sitting on the sea floor around LS....that was actually very profitable, Michael now has over a million bucks! While poor Trevor only has $89,000...
But don't feel too bad for Trevor he has recently moved into the Vanilla Unicorn!













Oh and my son was kind enough to return my car....complete with new rims....so classy!











Oh and last night I found this love note on the bedroom mirror...

CastleVania: Lords of Shadow 2 Dracula's Vengeance Trailer

Remind me why I need a PS4 again?
I truly enjoyed the first game in this reboot of the franchise with it's LotR inspired environments and GoW inspired gameplay and this trailer for CastleVania: Lords of Shadow 2 looks to take the story to new heights....albeit with a few changes to the official continuity. Yes I'm talking about Trevor Belmont and Alucard!
So now Trevor Belmont is Gabriel's son, turned vampire who goes by the name Alucard.
