I played some Dirt 3(360) yesterday and it’s pretty fun even though there’s no way in hell I am getting Platinum medals on the Gymkata(or whatever) Tutorial(I got gold n a few) and drift races make me want to rage quit. I also started watching Dexter Season 1 last night. I’m only 2 episodes in and it’s already one of the best shows I ever watched. Anyway let’s see what kind of cool shit we can find today.

The fourth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, called “Battle Lines,” premieres on Friday, September 16, at 8pm with a double episode featuring a pitched battle for Mon Calamari. There’s also a browser based MMO called  Clone Wars Adventures, from LucasFilm and Sony Online that links the TV show and game together(mostly).

We got a situation! Abercrombie & Fitch has offered money to the cast of Mtv’s Jersey Shore(The Situation primarily) to stop wearing their clothes. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! hahahahahahahah! LMAO! hhahahahahaha!

Get ready for more wacky comedy madness with the premiere of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA’s 7th season. The show starts up again Thursday September 15th on FX. Kitten Mittens FTW!

New movie poster for Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Really? It’s only Part 1? So after this stupid movie there’s still another stupid movie to come? WHAT IN THE FUCK PEOPLE!? Stop watching this shit!!!!!!! Especially you 30+ year old women with raging vagina madness for these emo retards and sparkly vampire gayness.

New trailer from EA’s revamp of the SSX snowboarding series which will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime in January.

Bruce Willis will be back for Die Hard 5: Please Die Already. This time John McLane will reportedly be going to Russia and as we already know he is never going to actually die.

Filming for The Wolverine will be starting up in Vancouver come November. Darren Aranofsky(Black Swan) is no longer directing but James Mangold(3:10 to Yuma) is now singed on to take the helm. “There were a number of directors who wanted to do this because we have the best script yet, but his take was the strongest,” Jackman told MTV News speaking of Mangold during San Diego Comic-Con this summer. “He’s phenomenal, he’s going to really knock this one out of the park.” We’ll see Hugh Jackass. We’ll see.

New trailer for Resident Evil….er Underworld 4: Awakenings. It will be in 3D and in theaters January 20th, 2012. You’ll never hear me complaining about Kate Beckinsale in leather!

Nicholas Cage and Nicole Kidman are starring in a new movie called Trespass which will be directed by Joel Schumacher(Batman & Robin). I’m gonna watch it just to see how completely over the top ridiculous it is!

Red Hot Chili Peppers released a new video for their song The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie. Their new album, I’m With You comes out August 30th. In conjunction with the albums release the Chili Peppers will also be broadcasting a concert to local movie theaters that same night in which they will play the entire I’m With You album along with some select past hits. Check here to see what movie theaters have been announced so far.

Shula’s Steak Houses announced today it has deployed the first set of iPads featuring Hospitality Social’s new interactive menu and wine list application – Hospitality Pads. Hospitality Pads were launched at the 2011 National Restaurant Association show in Chicago a few months ago in May. Shula’s Steak House is the first national steak house chain to launch the iPad wine lists which revolutionizes the wine experience while dining. Shula’s decided on the national roll-out of Hospitality Pads after successfully testing it in its Naples, Florida location.

“This latest innovation reflects Shula’s commitment to providing the best possible dining experience to our guests,” said Dave Shula, president, Shula’s Steakhouses, LLLP. “It offers an elegant, engaging and easy way for our customers to choose the right wine reflecting their unique tastes that also complements their meal.”

Hospitality Social’s application caters to both the novice and the wine enthusiast. The application will guide customers through selecting a wine and it also recommends the best wine pairings with each entrée on the menu. It enables guests to make informed choices and select wines with confidence even when you don’t know shit about wine. Hospitality Pads feature tasting notes, pictures, and scores for wines on an iPad. You can select wines based on food pairings, flavor preferences, regions, scoring and other criteria. This is the first such application combining an interactive menu with wine list food pairings, social networking and a rewards network. It enables restaurant patrons to get in-depth wine information right at the dining table when they are about to make a wine choice and the Hospitality Social application will enable Shula customers to track wines they order by emailing them the name of the wine they enjoyed during their meal. This is cool shit and I am sure it will be making its way into more and more restaurants in the near future.

Up and coming rapper Yelawolf has announced that he will release his debut full length studio album, Radioactive, on October 25th, 2011. Take a listen to the first single called Hard White (Up In The Club) featuring Lil Jon. Yelawolf  just completed a successful run of dates on The Vans Warped Tour as well as a string of European shows with the Wu Tang Clan. Kind of an Eminem clone, no?

Naughty Dog Community Manager Arne Meyer says that Uncharted 3 is currently too big for a 50GB PS3 Blu Ray disc. “Uncharted 2 barely made it to 25GB, while Naughty Dog is going over 50GB this time, for Uncharted 3. But in the end we’ll be under 50. We’ll be one disc.”  What this means of course is that there will now be compressed audio and video to make it fit on one disc as well as the obvious content being held back for DLC purposes.

Ridley Scott who directed the now timeless classic Alien in 1979 and has recently gone back to that world again with the upcoming 3D Fox film Prometheus(in theaters June 8th, 2012 has committed to direct and produce a sequel/prequel/reboot/something of his other groundbreaking sci-fi film from 1982, Blade Runner. This is the only news available on the project at the moment. There is no script, no actors, no nothing. It’s just been confirmed that he has signed up to make this movie in the future.

Advice Dog’s advice for 8/18:

That’s it for today guys and gals! Yes I am well aware that the PS3 will now offer NFL Sunday Ticket or whatever it’s called. It’s very cool and a great option and all but really at a price of $340 it’s unreasonable for me and probably a lot of other gamers. We bitch about $5 DLC for Christs sake. The pricing is actually one of the reasons I never got satellite TV to begin with. The only thing on there I would want is the NFL package and it was too expensive just justify switching from Time Warner. I also didn’t include the Borderlands 2 teaser trailer because there’s no gameplay and really it was quite boring to watch. I got to go make me a smoothie, work out while watching Dexter and get ready for Beer on the Balcony. See ya tomorrow!

So below we can see some dude holding some sort of gun that is obviously not of this Earth and then we see Captain America(Chris Evnas) fighting a couple of guys in motion capture suits. Nothing is confirmed as far as villains except Loki really but, hmmmm. Could this be Skrulls?

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s new movie day. Not a lot coming out but I watch anything so it doesn’t matter. Tuesday is also the day I get caught up on a weeks worth of TV shows so I will be busy sitting in front of the TV ALL DAY! Hooray! We got Gamescom this week so this might be dominated by videogame shit but we’ll see.

Nintendo who is never lacking for blockbuster news about brand new games for their consoles has just revealed that four new titles are going to be part of the budget Nintendo Selects line for the Wii.  Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, Punch-Out!!, and Super Mario Galaxy. Oh wait, those are old games again because Nintendo is out of ideas. If you haven’t played the games yet though the prices will be $19.99 each starting on August 28th, 2011 which is a good deal for those wacky Nintendards.

Here’s a little bit of what we can expect in Mass Effect 3 when it comes to combat. Woohoo go go Liara and Garrus!

I haven’t been keeping tabs on any news about a remake of The crow because the entire idea disgusts me. Brandon Lee literally gave his life for this role and Hollywood trying to remake this is like pissing on his grave. Apparently Bradley Cooper had signed on for the lead role but thankfully has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Unfortunately Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum are two other names that have been thrown in the ring for the part of Eric Draven. Fuck you Hollywood. Fuck you.

From the lips of Greg Miller over at IGN.com comes news of a new PSP model. During Sony’s press conference at Gamescom they revealed that it would be compatible with the entire catalog of PSP games and only cost £99 Euros! It will also only be available in the UK and will have no Wi-Fi…..Wait what?

New trailer and gameplay video from Gamescom 2011 for Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS. It looks pretty cool and you can even see Bill Murray from Ghostbusters briefly at the 1:00 mark.

Microsoft announced today some new features that will be coming to the Xbox LIVE gaming section of the Windows Phone. Windows Phone? Who gives a shit.

Alright here we go. Most likely the last bit of info on the Star Wars coins. There are two pure-silver full-color sets of $2 coins, including a $391.62 (plus shipping) Darth Vader and Millennium Falcon collection in a limited mintage of 7,500. The Darth Vader series includes Vader himself, Emperor Palpatine, the Death Star, and Stormtrooper coins. Not only that but the coins come in a special Darth Vader helmet case and actually plays the iconic sound of his respirator breathing when you open it.

The Millennium Falcon set comes with Luke Skywalker/Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi/Yoda, R2-D2/C-3PO, and Han Solo/Chewbacca. In addition, it also comes in a cool Millennium Falcon case that plays the sound of hyperspace when opening it.

$391.62 is a lot of money but don’t fret because there’s more. A set of 10 coin designs, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, R2-D2, C-3PO, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine. An additional 30 coins will join the collection later on and consist of other characters from Star Wars. This collection is silver plated and limited to 50,000 of each coin and can be pre-ordered for $19.57 plus tax.

Here’s some screenshots of a new Star Wars game coming exclusively to the 360. In it you will be able to wield a lightsaber, do some podracing and actually play as the Rancor and run around breaking shit. The game in question? Kinect Star Wars. *ducks* Haters gonna hate!

Yes. This is Battlefield 3 and it looks amazing. Uhhhh Jet gameplay?? Holy fucking shit! This is insanity! Not only does it look brilliant but if you pre-order the PC version from EA’s online store, Origin, you get your choice of one of three games. Medal of Honor, Dead Space 2 or Mass Effect 2. That’s a pretty cool deal and it is running from now until the end of August so get on that if you’re interested. As of now Battlefield 3 will not be available for purchase on Steam.

A report is saying that UFC and Fox have agreed to a deal for seven to eight years that would start in 2012. Spike TV has been carrying the UFC non pay per view fights since 2005 and these shows would be moved to Fox with this deal.

Here’s a Tweet from Hideo Kojima of a figurine of the Jehuty Orbital Frame from the Zone of the Enders games and behind it we can clearly see ZOE 3DS. Kojima’s text along with the picture said “Found this at Omori-kun’s desk. What’s this?”. It’s either Zone of Enders 3(DS) or it’s another port of an old game headed to Nintendo’s latest handheld. Fucking Kojima. 😀

Sony announced a price cut to the PS3, taking it from $299 down to to $249. I still feel sorry for people who rushed out and paid $600 for this at launch. If you would have waited until now you could have bought a PS3 and 6 games to go along with it for $610. I don’t really feel sorry for them. Suckers.

Here’s a cool video that you can have some fun with. It’s a cinematic mash-up of actors walking away from the camera so all you can see(in most cases) is their backs. Try to see how many actors and the movies they are in that you can guess. Keep on Walkin’, brother.

I’ll probably close with this because it’s pretty cool. Also, I’m fucking hungry. A soldier came home after being overseas for 9 months and is greeted by his huge ass dog, Emmett Thunderpaws who you can tell missed him very much. That thing could eat people.

See ya tomorrow.

Thanks!
