Dishonored! Partial Review

Hello my awesome readers!

I've been playing some Dishonored! You know, that moderately new game, where you play as an assassin with magical powers. I just have to say, it is pretty epic! I have not played through the whole game yet, but I can definitely comment on how it plays.
I really like how open the approaches are to completing the missions. You can hack and slash your way through them, though that usually makes it harder to complete the mission. You can also choose the stealthy path, which is my favorite, and sneak on ledges, under tables, posses  guards and animals to sneak around, and even scale buildings to enter through windows, rather than through the front door. And there are even underground pipes that lead into some buildings, giving you yet another way in. It is  possible to posses a fish, and swim up pipes and infiltrate the building that way, or a rat and enter through vents. There are honestly way more options available to a more stealthy play through of the game. The weapons are also very cool. You use a short sword, but that isn't the particularly cool weapon. The mini crossbow is very useful, especially for stealthy players. I often use it to shoot a guard with a sleep dart, who would have been much harder to subdue via choke. That is the other cool feature. When in stealth, you can move behind an unsuspecting guard and either stab him in the neck, or choke him into unconsciousness. The crossbow can also fire lethal bolts, and fire bolts. You also have a pistol, which is definitely not for stealth. It's loud, fairly powerful, and moderately fast to reload. The game is in an older time period, so it is a flintlock pistol of sorts.
You also get spring razors, which are very handy proximity mines. You are able to stick it to most surfaces, as well as living things, such as rats. When an enemy gets close to it, it fires a spray of shrapnel killing most in it's blast radius. They are great to use against a patrolling guard. Finally, you have grenades, which are probably the weapon least used by me. Very loud, and powerful, the grenade is not something you would use if you are trying to be stealthy. There are also rewire tools, which can hack enemy alarms and defenses such as the wall of light. The wall of light allows guards through, but will vaporize anyone without clearance. Use the rewire tool, and it switches to killing guards and letting you through. Now, onto the magical powers I mentioned. You get several abilities and spells by collecting runes to buy them with. Once bought, each ability can also be upgraded. The main powers (these require mana) are Dark Vision, Blink, Slow Time, Wind Blast, Devouring Swarm, and Possession.  Dark Vision lets you see in the dark, as well as see living things through walls. Blink is a sort of quick travel, allowing you to move a short distance instantly and stealthily. Though don't get it confused as with teleportation. If you try and Blink through a wall of light, you'll get fried :P Slow Time does exactly what it name implies, and the upgraded version can actually freeze time completely! You could actually slow time as someone is shooting at you, posses them, and walk them in front of their own bullet, then speed time up again! Which brings me to Possession. This power lets you merge with a living creature's body, and control them. You have to upgrade it first to be able to control humans though. Wind Blast is pretty much like a Fus Ro Dah :P Devouring Swarm summons a swarm of rats that will attack anything that moves. There are also several passive abilities that upgrade movement speed, jump height, health regeneration, and a couple that add combat bonuses. It is very fun to use the powers, and very rewarding when you manage to complete a mission, killing only the assigned target, and leaving the building full of unconscious guards. Another example of slow time's usefulness is when I used it to kill my target, and knock out an innocent bystander. I entered the room, slowed time, selected my sleeping darts and shot the bystander, then I walked over to the target and finished him off. Total Matrix moment!
I've also been able to use Possession to take control of a dog patrolling with a guard, run to some secluded ally way and kill the dong, then go and knock the guard out. There are many creative ways to use the abilities, and I'm looking forward to finding more. So, hope you enjoyed my review of the weapons and abilities of Dishonored!

Bigger or Better!

Hello my awesome readers!

Sorry it took me a while to get a post up, but I had a crazy amount of Math work over the past few weeks, and two unit tests yesterday. I finally have some free time now! :D
Ok, so for today's post, I thought I'd tell about a game that I played at summer camp.
It's called Bigger or Better, and how you play is you start with a paper clip (or something small like that) and go door-to-door trying to trade it for something bigger or better. If you're going to try it, I suggest going with at least one or more friends, since it may seem a little weird for just one person to do it. Anyway, it's really easy, and you can get some crazy trades! When I played it at camp, we went from a paper clip to a pen, from the pen to some cheap orange sunglasses, and from those we got a jar of rocks, from BC :P This little girl was super exited to play, and she brought us this jar of rocks, and she was so cute that we couldn't possibly say no :P so then, we eventually traded the rocks for an air purifier, and that eventually got us a DVD player! It looked like it had never been used, and even had the remote with it in the package. We kept going and eventually got a pair of skis! These skis were probably worth about 200 bucks! We almost called it a day, but we kept going. At one house, we almost got a drum set, which would have been pretty awesome! And finally, we came to one house and traded the skis for a 42 inch flat screen  TV! It may have been worth a bit less, but it was something the camp was able to use more than skis. And now, that TV is being used as a computer screen in the camp office. Hope you enjoyed my little story! I'll probably write up another post to make up for the lack of posts the past few weekends. Also, thanks so much to Cyby for writing up that post on cars! I know about twice as much about cars as I did before I read the post lol And I definitely am cool with you starting on that new song! I'll try and learn the lyrics today, or tomorrow for Eye of the Tiger, and maybe we can film on Wednesday! :D
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Keep being awesome!

I'm Back Again...

All right! Your favourite random fact-storing meatbag is back!
I'm afraid I can't offer anything as deep or thought provoking as something like Thoughtful Thursdays, but since Eye of the Tiger isn't going to happen any time soon, here's that promised over and over again post of mine.
After many months of... gathering information, Cyby's Car Post is here.

So, to start off this post about those wondrous whirring hunks of metal that ferry you to and from selected destinations, I should give you a wee bit of background info first.
I like cars.
I know, shocking, right?
But it's true. I just like anything mechanical, and cars fall under that category.
The basics of any car is this:
So, to ‘wrench,’ meaning to work on cars, you have to have some knowledge as to what goes on under the hood and a descent supply of tools and funds. Anyone should know a bit about cars, even if you don’t like them, such as how to change a tire, when to shut the engine off if there’s suddenly a bad noise, or where the cup holders are. Most cars are stunning, some are part of history, and all are horribly inefficient, with the older cars and the new supercars being the most. Almost all car engines use a simple four stroke process: injection of fuel as the piston is down, compression of the fuel by the piston as it comes up, ignition of the fuel from the spark plug with the resulting explosion pushing the piston back down, and then removal of the exhaust from that explosion by the piston coming back up. The engine uses a crankshaft to transfer the up and down movement of the pistons into rotational movement, which is transferred to the fly wheel, which is connected to the transmission, which is connected to the driveshaft, which is connected to the differential, which finally connects to the rear wheels. There are some variations in different engines, such as in the rotary engine which has an odd number of pistons arranged in a circle with every other piston firing, or the Wankel engine, which has a single piston shaped like a triangle, but either way, only about thirty percent of their potential is used, with the seventy percent lost due to heat or friction.
To make a car stop, you jam your foot on the left of those two peddles under your right foot, which causes a box in the engine compartment to squirt brake fluid through a series of tubes to the calliper (the brightly coloured semicircle shaped thing seen on the inside of wheels on sports cars) which squeezes on the rotors (the circular thing that glows bright red after intense braking of the car) effectively stopping a car and saving your life once again. That is basically how a car works, and if you want it in much more detail with diagrams and videos, look it up online. And info on the third most important part, steering, too.

I actually wrote that techy stuff for an essay about cars a while back. It's astounding how useful copy and paste is.

Now for something even less deep: I give you the top five coolest cars ever.

Number 5: 1936 Stout Scarab.

Reminiscent of a VW bus, but it's so much cooler. Plus according to Wiki, it was the first van ever, but because they cost so much, very few were produced and purchased. Thankfully, there is a working SS still out there in a museum.

Number 4: Holden Efijy Concept.

I am a big fan of any car that looks good with a purplish paint job. Apparently based off of their Holden FJ.

Number 3: 2010 Morgan Aero SuperSports.

I am also a big fan of cars that have protruding fenders. It looks like a classic, but being a convertible with 300someodd horsepower, there will be many bugs in your teeth.

Number 2: 1975 Pontiac Trans Am.

I know, I am a little biased when it comes to this one, but they just look so sleek.
Chevy and Pontiac battled it out with similar cars over the years (T/A vs. Z28, Chieftan vs Bel Aire, etc.), but Pontiac shut down a while back. That's one of the reasons Pontiacs are so alluring to me. Not many people will say "Pontiac" if asked the question "What's the first car manufacturer that comes to mind?" Chances are, "Chevy" or "Ford" will come blurting out. I, however prefer those good old Iron Indians. They just have a bit more style and finesse to them.

And now, the all time coolest car according to me is...

The 1941 Ford Pickup.

It's just a beautiful vehicle. The way the lines swoop, the fenders that stick out from the body, and the fact it looks awesome and carries stuff at the same time.
And the chrome. Can't forget the chrome.
It's my goal to own one of these sometime in the future, restoring one from the ground up. I've seen a promising candidate on Auto Trader Classics, but I'm not sure she'll still be there when I eventually get a job and save up enough.

And now the honourable mentions: 1937 Timbs Special, 1939 Delahaye 165 Cabriolet, and the 1939 Duesenberg Coupe Simone.

And that is it.
That's the end of my car post.
I hope you all enjoyed it and learned a little something.

Peace and chicken grease and I bid you good car Googling.

P.S. I'm with James in thinking after EOTT, Back in Black should be next...

The Return of That Dude

Hello my awesome reader!

I'm finally back, after my extremely long  leave of absence.
Well, it looks like I have some explaining to do.
I am really sorry for not posting in so long. I've really missed writing, and making videos for you all, and I'm planning on getting back to my master plan, that I set up for my post format. School has started up again, and I'm really busy, so my posts may be reduced to weekends only, instead of my usual everyday post. Though I haven't been doing any for a while, so at least some posts will be a change for the better :P
Anyway, here is some of why I haven't been posting.
After camp, I was really drained. It was a great experience, and it taught me how to work hard. During the last two weeks of camp, I got the flu, or something, and when I got home I was still fighting it. I just really needed a break to relax, so I took the rest of summer break. After school started, I was just super busy and couldn't find time to write, or make videos. I also went through a few personal struggles, and questions in my faith. All that being said, I feel ready to start posting again :D
And let me tell you, I have many plans for posts, including many stories I can tell about my experiences at camp :) So, look forward to reading those, and I am also planning on doing the Eye of the Tiger vlog with Cyby very soon! :D
I just need to find time to learn the lyrics again :P
Until next I post,
keep being awesome!

Thoughtful Thursdays

Since That Dude is away for three weeks at a camp, I am going to try my hand at doing these Thoughtful Thursdays. :) So it's time to sparkle up this blog with my enthusiastic feminine self! And perhaps provide a few words of wisdom. ;0

I'm going to talk about something that pretty much all teens seem to be doing nowadays - dating. Well, it's all very good and well to start getting ready for marriage, but there are some problems with this concept. I'm just going to go over one problem in this post - the MAJOR ONE.

There are so many girls nowadays who think they are only worth something if they are dating some guy. Preferably a "hot" guy (by the way, I absolutely HATE that word). I am acquainted with a girl who switches to a new boyfriend faster than you can say "Justin Bieber". (Okay, maybe not...but you get my meaning, no?) Almost every time I talk to her again (which is usually a week or two later), she's dating somebody new.

She'll say, "Oh I love John sooooo much!" (Name is just an example...I have honestly completely lost track of all the names she tells me.) And I'm wondering, "Really? Then how come you're gonna tell me next week that you love Keith so much?"

Guess which one of these guys she really does love? 

The simple answer is - NONE OF THEM.

The best dating advice for girls that I have EVER heard.

The only guy (or girl) you really do love is going to be the one that you'll be married to for the rest of your life. Especially if you're staying with your newest boyfriend/girlfriend for that long, like above (or should I say short?).

Love is not just a feeling.

Love is an action - a sacrifice.

Ask yourself this - am I willing to say with _____ for the rest of my life?

Ummm...well, yeah! That is, if a new hot boy doesn't move in next door...


Ask yourself this - am I willing to sacrifice my own time and money for _______?

Yeah, of course. We like to sit together watching TV and...

Yeah, but are you willing to stay up all night with ______ when _______ is sick? 

Please...please....PLEASE! Wait to date! Sixteen...or, Heaven forbid, not that old!

And some dating advice for guys. I TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY approve of this advice.


All of that was just really rambling on about trifles...but I guess I can try again next week. :-/

Tell me if you like? :)

What's That Dude Up to?

Hello my awesome readers!

So, I guess I did most of the update on me yesterday. As you probably read, I'll be going away for three weeks. I'm going to volunteer at a summer camp, and it's going to be awesome! I'll for sure miss posting, but hopefully my authors will do some posts so you guys and girls have something to read. And when I get back, I'll try and do a huge post special! I'll possibly put some game play vids up, as well as an update, and who knows what else? Also, if you have suggestions for what the special post day should include, feel free to post in the comments!
I'm going to miss you all so much! It's really cool for me to look back at how my blog started, and how far it's come. I also really enjoy checking out the blogs of my followers. I especially like JandJ's blog! Check them out at this link!
I also want to thank all the people that comment, and tell me what they like, what they want to see, and just what they think of the topic.
As for the future, I'm thinking of possibly making a new youtube channel for gaming videos! This channel won't likely be linked to this blog, but the videos may be public on youtube. I'm still thinking about it, but if your interested in following that channel, (If I make it) post in the comments!

Well, that's all for this post, though I may do a vlog today as well to give you awesome people a little extra before I go!
Keep being awesome!

Partial Review of TWFC!

Hello my awesome readers!

Today is review Friday, and I'll be going over some of the game play of Transformers War for Cybertron!
Hope you enjoy!

Since I haven't beaten the game, I'll mostly cover the game play. Most of the controls are introduced to you early on in the game, and you can even access tutorials (though I didn't when I was playing, because I'd already looked at the manual.). The control layout is very good, though the default for transforming can be a little sensitive. The default for transforming is set to the L3 button, and at times you'll probably find yourself accidentally pressing it when you didn't mean to. If you want, you can change it to the Triangle button (PS3), but then you will change your weapons switch button to another one, though I don't remember which, since it wasn't a great change. Apart from that, the game has very solid controls, though the grenade button is mapped to the Circle button. As far as game play goes, it is a third person shooter, ranging from ground combat as the robot and ground vehicle forms, to the air with the jet form. So far, levels are usually clearing rooms of enemies, mini boss fights, and objectives like planting a bomb on an enemy assault ship. I really like how seamlessly your character transforms from one form to another, making combat, and the use of your two forms very smooth and cool. You also get a couple special abilities with the character that you chose for the mission. Whether it's placing a sentry gun, or absorbing health from a nearby enemy, there is a nice variety of special abilities. The weapons are also pretty cool. Especially online, when you get to choose what you use. There are your basic shooter weapons, like an assault rifle, sniper rifle (though it's called a type of pistol), rocket launcher, and shotgun. There are also special weapons, like the plasma cannon, minigun, and a few others.
Online is lots of fun too! You have four classes, Scout, Scientist, Leader, and Soldier. I prefer the Soldier, because he transforms into a tank, and I use a minigun and rocket launcher. Each class has it's own special abilities that you use, and unlock, as well as weapons specific to each class. The scientist has a special repair tool that allows him to heal team mates, and he also transforms into a jet. Scouts can cloak themselves, and use sniper rifles. Leaders can boost their team mates stats, and use some fairly good weapons. And from my description above, soldiers use heavier weapons. Like in Ghost Recon, you level up each class by using it. There is also a wave survival type mode, where you work co op with friends to survive waves of enemies. Not much needs to be said about this mode, since it is similar to other wave modes.
Over all, it is a great game so far!
I give it a 8.8 out of 10!
Keep being awesome!

Cyby and That Dude Wednesday Update

Hello my awesome readers!

I'm posting this to explain about the lack of a post on Wednesday.
Cyby and I didn't get a chance to really film, but as I said in my other post, we'd do a video when possible. I was thinking of doing another post to fill in for it, but I couldn't really come up with anything in the time I had, because I was out pretty much all day. So, sorry about that.
Also, check out the first post for Thoughtful Thursday! I worked on it with Alylianna AKA the Dudess! :)
One more update!
I may be going away for about three weeks! I'm going to possibly be working as an SIT (Staff in Training) at a summer camp I've gone to. It's going to be really fun, but I'm going to miss posting for you guys :( But, in the words of the Terminator, I'll be back! :P
Since I'll be leaving this Sunday, I'll post JT/King Valun's blog in the Epic blog of the week a little early. Or maybe I'll just have it show both J and J's and King Valun's. We'll see.
Anyway, that's about all I can think of for updates, other than look forward to today's review! :D

Keep being awesome!

Thoughtful Thursdays - 1st Collab on BULLYING

Hello our awesome readers!
I’m That Dude, and I’m doing a collaboration post with Alyianna Baggins.
Alyianna: Hello! :)

For our first collaboration post, we decided to talk about a topic that everyone faces at one point in their life. It can come from many areas in a person’s life, whether it is at school, on the internet, or even at church. No matter where it is experienced, a person can never truly be ready for it.

Many years ago, when my voice was higher, and my legs shorter, I was at a sort of party. A few friends and I were all gathered in a circle, and having an awesome time! We were laughing and just being our crazy selves, when some random woman came by and said, “You laugh like a girl!”. At first, I thought nothing of it, but as time went on I thought more and more about how my laugh sounded. At that age, everyone sounds like a girl :P but I started noticing it a lot more. I started trying to “control” the pitch of my laugh, but all that achieved was a hollow, and fake laugh. And after all that time of trying to have a “normal” laugh, I’d forgotten how to laugh naturally. And being so critical of myself just took so much joy out of the times that I could have been free to be myself. I wish I hadn’t paid attention, and I wish I could have kept that healthy laugh, but now all I can do is make up for lost time. I’ve forgiven her, but I wish it hadn’t happened in the first place.

Even something as simple as defending what you believe in, or even what you like (a hobby, fandom, etc.), can hurt people. Something like this, I see on one of my favourite websites - YouTube - ALL the time. It’s not only the language that people use. When somebody says they don’t like a certain song or a certain artist on the video, then the people, who really like that artist can get really mad. I know this first hand. Today, I posted a comment on a YouTube video that I didn’t think was appropriate. I got over 400 hate comments in reply.

Sometimes you might wonder why bullies do what they do. At many times, people may say something hurtful without even meaning to. But, at other times, someone may do hurtful things because someone did something like that to them. Or they feel insecure, and when they put other people down, they think that they can feel better about themselves. It’s easy to want to hate a bully in your life, but you have to realize that they may be hurting inside too. Sometimes, all they need is someone to show kindness to them, and it can change them in so many ways. It is scary to do this, but it’s a truly amazing experience to be a part of turning that person’s life around. Maybe this won’t happen, and maybe the bully will still bother you, but it’s always good to try and make a difference in a world full of pain.

You may like to watch this trailer for a kid movie on bullying. The movie is quite good. :)

That Dude's Weekly Advice! Video Games

Hello my awesome readers!

Here is my advice for the week!

Over the years, I've played many great, and many terrible games. I've also had experience with different consoles. And my advice is to heavily review games before spending your hard earned money on them. When I was younger, I didn't have a PS3. What I had, and in fact still have was a Nintendo Wii. Now, I've had fun with some games on the Wii, but it doesn't have a huge selection of great games. The Zelda games are fairly good on it, but almost all of the Wii exclusive games suck, or are for much younger gamers. And even though it may be for the younger, or elderly in some cases, the control issues that come with the game usually ruin the experience. I can't stress how much I wanted Wii boxing to work well, and how long I tried to figure out how to make it work, but it's just something the Wii can't handle. This post is a warning against getting a Wii. It is best for younger kids, but even so, the games available for it are pretty poor handling. Though I did play a pretty good racing game, and Red Steel 2 is also a fairly controllable and fun game. I highly recommend the PS3, or Xbox 360 to more hardcore gammers. Both systems are great, though for a more economic choice, go with the PS3, because it gets free access to online play. Another point about the Wii, is when it gets titles that are also on PS3 and Xbox 360, such as COD, it is often a disappointment. The Wii version of COD is a stripped down version, and until Black ops and the use of the classic controller, all COD games on the Wii were a pain to control. You lose split screen, sometimes a level from the campaign, and even a few weapons and maps. I haven't tried MW3 on the Wii, so I don't know how well that one handles.
Ok, the Wii isn't all bad, there are some goodish games, like Zelda (As mentioned earlier), Red Steel 2, The Force Unleashed, New Super Mario,  and Super Smash Bros Brawl. (and possibly a few others that I forgot)
It may be a good system to start with when you are younger, but in general I've started staying away from motion control gaming. It's not that it can't be fun, but I prefer a game that will work every time, and that's why I love the traditional controller that the PS systems and Xbox use. And I so wish I had a TV that would work with my Super Nintendo! :(
My opinion on the Wii may be slightly overly critical, but that comes from my personal experience with the Wii. Again, I'm not saying you can't have fun with it, but just be careful to know what you're looking for in a console.
Hope you enjoyed my post!
Keep being awesome!

Sunday's Random Post! Action Movie Mini Review

Hello my awesome readers!

I know I'm doing my reviews on Friday, but this movie is so simple, that it doesn't need a full length review, as with Ghost Recon.
The movie is The Expendables. Directed by Sylvester Stallone, this movie is centered completely on action! It is also pretty cool how he brings actors from a huge amount of old action movies together, like Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Terry Crews, that crazy old spice dude lol
Though I haven't seen most of the movies those actors were in, and didn't recognize most of them either, it was still cool seeing how many I could recognize.
Plot wise, there is next to none, and you will have trouble understand what is going on, because you'll have to pay a huge amount of attention to the fairly boring parts between the mind numbing action. I'd have to say it's one of the worst action movies I've seen. The plot makes no sense, and you don't even want to pay attention to the parts that slightly explain it, because of how dull they are. All I can say is this boss team is going after some power hungry Mexican, who's buying something illegal... or something like that. Most of the characters don't even have a back story. Jason's character has a love interest, but that story isn't particularly original, or important in the long run. There are a few funny moments with Jet Li, but most of the time people are just making fun of his size. To be honest, there isn't much to tell about the movie. Just picture Rambo 4 with a worse story, and less action :P and a whole whack of cameos.
I rate this movie 1.5 out of 5 stars.
Blandly driven story, Next to no story, Rather bad dialogue, Some action comparable to Rambo 4, but less of it, and some pretty shallow characters. If you like action movies, this may be a movie for you, but if you want at least some story, like in Die Hard, you should just watch Die Hard. I highly recommend Die Hard, awesome movie!
Nine armed men dressed in black standing shoulder to shoulder, Sylvester Stallone front and center.

Hope you enjoyed my review!

Thoughtful Thursday Suggestions!

Hello my awesome readers!

My game plan is working out well for me so far :D So, this is the post that you can comment on to suggest   a topic for Thoughtful Thursday!
I'm cool with pretty much any topic, though keep the topic appropriate. What I'm looking for are topics that can have a fair amount written about them, because Thoughtful Thursday is going to be a larger post. Sunday's Random post will be shorter, and the topics I use for that are good examples of topics that would be to small for the Thursday post.
So, go ahead and start posting your suggestions in the comments below :D I look forward to seeing what ya'll come up with :)
Keep being awesome!

Cual esta nuevo con me?

Hello my awesome readers!

Here is an update on what is new with me!
So, it's summer, and I'm trying my best not to waste any of it. But I'm running out of things to do! :O Hahaha though some days are fine to use for just relaxation, I still want to do awesome stuff. So a few days ago, I decided to learn to skateboard! :D I started out a little wobbly, but after an hour or so, I was speeding down the street without a care in the world :P though those cars certainly brought my thoughts back to reality. Other than that, not much new, though I've been practicing a bunch with my bow and arrows.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed my post! :) I'll be thinking up a random topic for tomorrow's post, and please comment on my topic request post for Thoughtful Thursdays!
Also, if anyone can translate the title of this post without a translator, I will give you a shout out in a future post! :D And if you have a blog, I'll also mention that.
Keep being awesome!

Friday Game Review! Like a Ghost!

Hello my awesome readers!

Today, I'm doing a review on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier!
Now, this is not a full review, as I have not finished the game yet, so I won't be able to cover the story and a few other areas as much. But I can go over gameplay, which is what is most important.

Ghost Recon would fall under two categories. It's mostly a third person shooter, but it also has a few elements of an RTS. You'll be playing as one of the Ghosts in a squad of four, and you can coordinate synchronized take downs with your three computer teammates. You do this by aiming at an enemy unit and pressing the R2 button. You can highlight up to 4 targets, and once you've done this, you aim at one of the four targets and wait for a special onscreen prompt that shows when you are ready to do a perfect sync shot. You will know when you've been succesful at one of these, because a few seconds of slo-mo coolness follows after you pull the trigger.
Now, the single player campaign can also be played with your friends online, though not many of my friends actually have the game. But even if you don't play through with living, breathing team members, the AI of your computer team is very good. When you highlight an enemy unit you want them to target, they will do there best to get in position to take the target out on your signal. But they are smart enough not to give away their position to the enemy. if your team members can't get a clear shot at the target, they won't risk being discovered, and that makes game play all the better, because you don't have to worry about your team being stupid and getting detected. This makes for a great stealth based game, and you'll be trying your hardest not to be detected, so as to be able to do more sync shots. You need to find the right moment to take the shot, so as not to be detected, but you also need to pick the right targets. I often take down the enemies that are in watch towers and such, because they would likely see the ones on the ground get shot, plus the enemies on the ground are less likely to see the lone sentry on the roof get killed. Using strategies like this gets you a higher Ghost rating at the end of each mission, and there are also special challenges that add to this rating. So far, my best score was 99 of 100! :D and I felt super pro getting it. You are notified in game when you complete one of these challenges, so you can see when you're doing good. As for when you aren't in stealth mode, the game works well for the more hectic combat. The cover system is great! When behind cover, you can move smoothly to another place by simply looking at where you want to go, and when you see a icon at the destination you hold X (PS3) and your character runs to that place.
Though it is a third person shooter, hitting R3 will put you in an ADS mode (Aim Down Sights) which I found pretty cool.
There is also a guerrilla mode, which is a co-op where you and your friends work together to fight waves of enemies. Pretty much a horde mode from Gears of War. Though there are objectives to capture and hold. (I haven't played much of GOW, so I don't know if there objectives in horde mode or not. I don't remember any :P).
Gunsmith is one of my favorite parts of the game. It allows you to completely customize your weapons. Even the trigger is customizable! And it is awesome when you unlock a piece that you've been wanting to add to your gun, such as a bi-pod for better sniping. My online sniper rifle is decked out with a bi-pod, 12x magnification scope, long barrel for better range, a fixed stock, for more control, and a laser pointer for a little style :P since it's mostly used when hip firing. You can also customize things like the gas system in automatic weapons, which changes the control and rate of fire of the weapon.
As for Multiplayer, it is pretty cool! There are three classes you can choose from. Engineer, who can place things like turrets, and who also has a sensor grenade, which allows teammates to see enemy units within it's radius. The rifleman, who has stronger body armor, and uses LMG's and Assault rifles. And the class I've been having the most success with, the scout. The scout has a slightly downgraded version of the single player campaign's optical camo, which allows you to become nearly invisible. In the campaign, you are able to move slowly with the camo active, but you are only able to use it when standing still in multiplayer. Though I did see an equipment piece to unlock, that allows for limited movement while camo is active. Your use of these three class types levels them up. I've gotten my scout to level five, and my rifleman and engineer are both level one.
Game modes range from a headquarters type mode, to a sabotage type. There are a couple more, like decoy. This mode has each team attempt to complete an objective, the only problem is that there are two decoy objectives, and it is impossible to know which one is real. I haven't tried this one yet, but from what I've heard it is pretty good. The cover system works just as good in multiplayer, though there are times I thought I was hidden, but got shot anyway. This isn't anything that the game messes up, just the perception in third person.
Over all, this game has an awesome single player, and great multiplayer. It is a win in pretty much every way, though graphics can take sudden drops, in the case of the characters looking slightly plastic. Though most of the time, it is a great looking game as well.
There are also a lot of futuristic gadgets in the game, such as the optical camo, and a cool controllable UAV, but I'll have to cover the gadgets in a future post, since I haven't even seen all of them yet.
I highly recommend this game, especially for those into strategy, and stealth genres.
I give this game a 8.8 out of 10 for what I've played so far.

Butterfly Knife Training: The Basics

Hello my awesome readers!

Here is a much more thorough, and much less shaky tutorial for all the tricks I did with Cyby.
Hope you enjoy, and please post in the comments if you have found other butterfly knife tricks that you think are cool. I would love to learn more awesome tricks! :D Also, if you want a video on a specific trick in even more detail, just ask. I had a time limit to fit all of the tricks into, so if I didn't do a good enough job on one, I can do a separate video for that one.

11 Tag Post! Again :P

Hello my awesome readers!
It looks like I have once again been tagged for the 11 tag post! Thank you Alyianna, for tagging me! :D I enjoy answering questions, so if any of you awesome readers have any, feel free to ask them in the comments. So, let's get to these questions :D

1. What do you think makes a (a question for the guys) girl beautiful or a (a question for the girls) guy...errm...attractive?

I believe it's what is on the inside that makes a truly beautiful person, but as far as looks go, the thing that I notice most is usually something in her facial features. She may have very beautiful eyes, or a lovely smile, and these all add to her overall beauty. But what I find truly beautiful, is when there is passion, and joy that just shines through it all. And when you see someone like that, you feel some of that joy too. 

2. What is your favourite type of flower?

I like roses :) they are very romantic ;) 

3. Who is your favourite character of all time?

:O that's a hard one! I think I'd have to choose between Indiana Jones, or Ender Wiggin.

4. What are you listening to right now? (Doesn't have to be music if you're not listening to that.)

Construction. Kinda sucks :P but I think I'll listen to some "Eye of the Tiger" right now! :D 

5. What is/are your pet peeve(s)?

Hmmm I don't really have any. Maybe just when video game series keep making new games with little difference to the last in gameplay. Unless of course it has a good story. 

6. What is your favourite language?

Spanish!!! :D

7. Do you have a special place in your house?

Yeah, the refrigerator ;)

8. Do you sleep on your back, on your side, on your front, or do you turn around a lot?

I tend to fall asleep on either my back, or side. After that, I think I shift a moderate amount. 

9.  Do you a song that reminds you of a time of your life that you wish you could go back to?

hmmmm I'll have to think about that :P 

10. Do you have one movie that you really hate? If so, what it is it and why?

Oh good gravy :P I have seen many! One is an alien invasion type movie, but the aliens are existing on a different frequency of light and junk to those of the humans. So, they get this microwave gun that disrupts the alien wavelengths, and allows the people to use guns to finish them off. And the Aliens can't see through glass, and also power up electronics lol There is little to know story for any of the characters, and almost every main character dies except two. I think it was called "The Darkest Hour" or something like that, and I highly recommend not watching it :P 

11. What is your favorite song at the moment?

Hmmm I don't know. I don't often have an absolute favorite song really. 

Alright! That's all the questions! Thank you once again Alyianna! :D 
Now, I don't have 11 followers who have blogs, so I tag anyone who wants to be tagged :P I know I've done this before, so whoever wants can answer these questions.

My questions are:
1. If you were stranded on an island, and had a volley ball, how long do you think it would take for you to start talking to said volley ball? 
2. Do you know the muffin man?
3. What is your biggest fear?
4. Clowns. Do you like them, or do they scare you?
5. What is your favorite old school arcade game you've played? for example, Pac Man?
6. What is the worst video game you've ever played?
7. Paintball, laser tag, or airsoft?
8. Would you prefer a futuristic weapon, like a Lightsaber? Or an older weapon, like a Gladius? 

Uncrossed gladius.jpg
9. Who is your favorite movie villain? Why?
10. Do you think Alyianna and Cyby should be posting more on this blog? ;P
11. Do you play Minecraft?

Those are my questions! :D

Black Ops II! Something New? Video Games Thoughts

Hello my awesome readers!

As some of you may know, there is a sequel to the COD Black Ops game coming out.
Now I am a COD fan, but I do not buy every single game that comes out. For example, I have Modern Warfare 1 on the wii, and 2 on the ps3 because the ps3 game is better lol. I only had a wii for a time so when I got my ps3 I bought Modern 2. But enough about which system I prefer (PS3), let's talk about this new game. It's supposed to be set in the near future, and apparently the robots are taking over or something original like that.

Yeah, I'm not sure if this is another take on Skynet, but you never know. But my question is, when will it end? I mean you have Modern Warfare 1-3, Black ops and soon to be Black ops II, and these are the most recent COD's (We'll leave the WWII ones out of this).
I get the game company wants money, but can it not just come up with a different game all together? We have seen so many FPS (First Person Shooters) that we can only tell the difference by the "Titles". There are pretty much two styles of FPS. Battlefield, and COD, the former being more "Strategy" based, while the latter is more crazed gunfights. There are some more interesting shooters here and there, like Crysis, which I've done a review on in the past, and these games are awesome ideas! The problem is they tend to be missing a lot of what makes COD and Battlefield so successful. The leveling system. People get hooked on unlocking things, but in games like Crysis 2, you haven't got nearly as much to unlock as you do in COD. And what happens when you unlock everything in one COD? You buy another one lol. I am honestly thinking of skipping this COD and just waiting a few more years to see if there will be a Black ops IV. That's the perfect plan for video games. Buy the last game in the series and you'll usually get the best. I mean, look how many Halo games there are? Of course, there's Assassin's Creed. This game series is by far my favorite, and I'm going to get the final game that comes out at the end of October. AC III! I am excited for this game! It takes the time period to the American Civil war, and that's one reason I really like AC. I really enjoy a historical fiction story, and I've read quite a few, and playing one is just pure awesome!
Assassin's Creed Logo.svg If you really love the story and gameplay of a game series, I think it's fine to buy the games, but as far as shooters go, they are mostly the same with a few upgrades here and there. Those are my thoughts. Hope you enjoyed reading them :D
Please post in the comments and tell me what you think about video game series. Are they worth spending the money on? Or which ones specifically would you say are worth it?

Starhawk Video Game Review!

Hello my awesome readers!

It's been a while since I've posted on my blog, but I've got some new material to work with, so look forward to some new videos!

Starhawk is a third-person shooter, but that's not what makes it so unique. What does is the ability to change up the battlefield on the fly. The PS3 game's Build & Battle system is a really awesome enhancement to the usually generic shooters. The Build & Battle system works by allowing a player to call in orbital drops for the price of some Rift energy. These drops include things such as bunkers, turrets, Hawk platforms, tank depots, jeep garages, sniper towers, walls, a sort of speeder bike, and jet pack dispensers! This system is utilized both in the campaign and in multiplayer. And really, multiplayer is where it's at! This building feature changes the game from a shooter, to more of an RTS (real time strategy for those of you who may not be fluent in gaming lingo), because you have to spend your rift energy wisely, since it could be better to get an anti aircraft turret, rather than a sniper tower. And when you are playing online, you need to work with your team, because everyone can build things. If one of your teammates builds a bunker, you do not want to make another one just for the sake of having two. And going off on your own to try and kill the enemy troops at their base is usually a bad idea. Fortify first, then strike with power! :D that's what I like about Starhawk. It isn't like COD. The top player doesn't need to have the most kills. If you decide to help build up the home base while others go out to keep the enemy at bay, you will still be contributing and gaining XP. The game is very centered on team work. As for the story, you won't be finishing the game feeling like you've really gained anything from what you've learned about the world of Starhawk. Starhawk is a future/western themed game about a gun for hire named Emmett Graves, who is usually hired to secure sources of Rift energy. The odd thing is Rift energy can corrupt people somehow, and has managed to do so to countless victims (Emmett's brother included). Emmett himself was only slightly corrupted and now works as a bounty hunter, and that's about it. Emmett is just an angry man with a whole lot of one-liners. I don't fully understand why this sci-fi gold rush is based around a material that has transformed a huge amount of people into space zombies (though these zombies use guns and pilot vehicles), but I don't mind since the gameplay is way better than the story. Leveling up online gives you XP points to spend on different abilities you've unlocked by completing the challenge for said ability. You also unlock different parts to your character's outfit, allowing for some customization (Though the outfits I've unlocked so far kind of suck lol). Over all, it's a great game, but I have to worn you about one thing that could be it's downfall. Many a time I've been playing Starhawk online, and it's caused my system to freeze. It usually freezes one to three times in a day playing it. I don't know if this will be fixed eventually, but the last time I played online, my game froze and now I cannot go online because the file is corrupted or something and it screwed up the game data so the menu doesn't work. I can still play through the campaign, so once I beat it, I'll delete the file and re-install the game so I can play online again. That being said, I'd still recommend this game, but buy it at your own risk. I don't know how often it will corrupt your data from freezing, but it's only happened once for me. And it mostly freezes at the loading screens for multiplayer.
In total, I give it a 8.8 out of 10 score.
It has a few technical issues and a poor story, but it's a really great gaming experience!

Happy Mothers Day!

Hello my awesome readers!

Today is a very special day! :D And if you don't read titles, or actually don't know what day it is, it's Mothers Day! :D
So, what did all my awesome readers do for their mothers? Did you bake her a cake? Make her something out of clay? Perhaps you bought her a diamond necklace! :D (I didn't do that)
Well,I got my mom a giant chocolate bar! :D
Today is a day to remember our moms, so make sure to let them know how much they mean to you :) They do so much for us, and it's easy to forget how much they sacrifice so that we are comfortable. So, give your mom a hug, some chocolate, and most importantly let her have a day off :P
Keep being awesome! (Especially to your mothers ;))

Foundation of The Friendship

Hello my awesome readers.
Here is my first Thought of the Week post!

In my life, I have noticed many Christians and the way they try and spread the word of God. I have seen ways that have worked, and ways that haven't worked at all. First of all, I've seen some Christians simply trying to ram their beliefs down a listener's throat, and this is a very bad way for someone to start their walk with God. What many people try to do when telling others of their religion is start with "The rules". They tell the person what they can and cannot do, and it is important to know these rules, but it is even more important to know about the foundation of said rules. What God is really about is love, and that is what we, as Christians need to start showing people. Not telling, but showing, because we need to let people see for themselves what a life in God does. You can be the most persuasive public speaker, but if you are not practicing what you preach, then what is the point? If we show love in our actions, and in our words, that is a far truer picture of life with God than a well written speech can ever be. God is love, and we need to be imitators of God. What I have found, is that friendship is one of the best ways to begin introducing someone to God. God is the best friend anyone could ever ask for, so we need to start showing people why. By showing kindness and love to others, we are preparing their hearts for Jesus.
Hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts on this topic. It's getting a bit late, and I have to do a few other things, so I'll have to end this post here. I will probably continue this topic on the next post, since I wasn't able to put everything I wanted to down. Post in the comments! Do you like this topic? Are there other topics you're interested in? I very much appreciate input, and I'd love to give my thoughts on pretty much any topic that interests my awesome readers :)

New Weekly Thought!

Hello my awesome readers!

I figure I need some sort of weekly post, so starting this Sunday (tomorrow) I will be doing a weekly thought. I'll pick a topic and give my thoughts on it (not to complicated right? :P). It could be on a movie, politics (unlikely), video games, and more! I may even do some sort of daily post, but that's pending. It all depends on how much time I have, and I really want more time to write posts that you all can enjoy. I mean, it's been a little while since I did a big review post like the one on The Hobbit. So, I'm planning on really taking things up a notch, by posting at least once a week, if not more.
Hope you all enjoy my future posts! And look forward to tomorrows post!

So Sneaky!

Hello my awesome readers!

It has been far to long since I've posted, and I'm sorry about that :( Been really busy with school and other random stuff :P
Well, I'll do an update on me post and a game tip for Skyrim! :D
What's new? Well, I have been practicing with both my bow and my throwing knives. Sooner or later, I'll do a video with my knives, but until then I hope to do more post. I saw a few movies recently, so I may do some review posts. I'm thinking of doing a weekly post at least. What else is new? not that much, and yes I just answered my own question. But seriously, I had a week off from school actually, so I was busy chillaxing with friends and I also started my reading of LOTR Fellowship of the Ring! :D I've read three chapters so far and it's awesome! Post in the comments, have you read LOTR? How did you like it? I love hearing from my awesome readers :D Now I have a question for you guys and girls. Does anyone have a request for some sort of epic video? Cyby and I are working on Eye of the Tiger, so maybe not a song :P (We don't want to over work Cyby!) I could do Parkour vids and challenges! :D you can challenge me to attempt some sort of awesomeness. I'll pick my favorite challenge and do the vlog on it, and also give some advertisement of the person's blog (If said blog exists). That's about it for this post, see the game tip below for Skyrim sneak leveling.

Which Dude? That Dude!

Hello my awesome readers!

What's new with me? Well, Cyby and I are working on the Eye of the Tiger! I'm learning the lyrics, and Cyby is going to be playing the song with his guitar! So, look forward to a (hopefully) pretty epic future vlog!
So, I've got these throwing knives (as mentioned in my 11 tag post) that I've been practicing with, and so far it has been quite a fun skill to learn. I have had some success with the straight throw technique, and I think it is pretty much the easiest to use as well as the most practical. I tried the spin technique, but that requires more skill at judging distance and spin of the blade. I'm a guy! I don't have time to think about how far away the target is! I want to throw the knife right away! Though I have to admit, it feels pretty good when I threw a spinning blade into Dave. What else is new? Well, I bought Portal 2! I needed a different game style, since I have way to many shooters. (Though Portal 2 has a portal gun, it is not a shooter.)
Also, it seems that when I get sick, I only get sick for about three days. Why couldn't it be like that when I was young?! I would get sick for up to three weeks sometimes! Guess my epicness had not fully developed ;)
Well, it's getting late, and I have a few more things to do.
Keep being awesome!

Happy Medium

Hello once again my awesome readers!

After many different tests of background colours, I've decided to go with a darker red. I think it works better with the header too. Sorry Cyby, no flames for you.
Now that I'm done changing up the look, I'm going to do some more written posts! :D
I'll very likely do a update on me post today, and possibly another post on a different subject.
Until then, keep being awesome! :D

Background Pending

Hello my awesome readers!

So, I got mixed response the the bright red background. Some found it hard on the eyes, so tell me what you think of the new (Or old/first) background.
I may try a darker red, but like Cyby, I also like the flames :P
I'm looking for ease of reading, cool look, and a third option that I have yet to think of.
All the input I've gotten has been awesome in helping me decide what to do, so thanks! :D
Keep being awesome!

I was kind of wanting more colour :P a bit tired of mostly black.
Hope you all like it! :D

Hello my awesome readers!
I am currently working on giving this blog a new look! :D Once I'm done, I'd love your input on it.

Stargate Atlantis intro.jpg

The title "James Cameron's Avatar", film credits and the release date appear at the bottom.
8: Do you like or dislike the Star Wars Prequels (if you haven't seen the Star Wars prequel trilogy do you want to see the any of the Star Wars movies) Ahaha, the ones they call I - III eh? :P I thought they were cool, but I think the originals were best. The prequels had some cool FX, but the originals made just as good action and plot, but it wasn't all about looks. It was in the time when movies were made good, before they were made pretty :P 
9: What movie quote do you use most often in normal conversation? I actually tend to use more TV show quotes, but I'd say the most used movie quote would be, "Away with your weapon! I mean you no harm!" and for those of you who don't know Star Wars, that was Yoda :P
10: Do you like or dislike older movies in general (before 1980) I love old movies! :D True Grit is awesome! and anything with John Wayne is usually awesome too!
11: Marvel vs. DC, which is your favorite (please note if you have not seen many movies from either franchise) I don't know comics that well :P but if DC is the one with Batman, that one! LOL
Second most used quote, "I'm Batman!"
