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.

Keep being awesome!

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?

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!
