Hello! It’s Sunday and it’s rainy here in New York so I am just sitting around watching some movies and will be playing more Deus Ex today. I still don’t think it’s great but it’s not horrible.
Anyway, it’s rapidly heading into the major game release season as we all know and there are several games(and movies too) that people are anticipating. September is just a few days away and the fall schedule is set and with so many awesome titles coming out I wanted to know what you already know for sure you want and have pre-ordered.
So let’s see what I have waiting for its release date in the coming months.
Not everyone liked Thor but I really did and this will actually be the first Blu Ray I own!
Star Wars Complete Saga of Episode I-VI with 9 discs and over 40 hours of bonus content. I had to get this! I haven’t watched Star Wars in a long time anyway. Probably not since Episode III was in theaters.
How could you NOT pre-order this game? It’s going to be freaking awesome!
I am fairly certain that Skyrim will be my personal game of the year regardless what any websites might pick as theirs. It’s bigger, better, faster, stronger than Oblivion and I expect to be playing it for months.
I’ve had this pre-ordered since 2010 and the night of the VGA’s on Spike TV when they officially revealed the teaser trailer. Without a doubt this is my most anticipated game and I can assure you that it will be my game of the Year for 2012.
So that’s what’s on tap for me but what about you guys? Let me know in the comments what kinda shit you already got pre-ordered to get you through this fall and winter of gaming.
It’s the weekend so that means – Stupid Questions With Angry!
Today’s question is about toys! No not that dildo under your mattress, but real toys like the kids play with! What ones did you have to have when you were growing up? I’m not talking about the ones you kept in the package because you were a collector. I mean the real ones you opened and played with because it was fun and you weren’t an asshole yet who valued money over childhood happiness.
Holy crap there were a few for me as a teenager and before but I think I will go with the 2XL.
The 2Xl was a toy robot thingy that used 8 track tapes to play trivia games, music, tell jokes, stories, and just stupid fun stuff for kids. it was entertaining and educational. There were several different themes of 8 tracks like General Information or one of my favorites, Superheroes.That’s all I actually remember off the top of my head without going to look up other tapes in the series.
That thing was crazy fun!
So tell me about some of the toys you had to have when you were growing up
Wooooooooo we had us some nice drama on My IGN this past week. Kinggoken got really excited about it. That shit was funny and I hope we all made a few enemies! Just kidding. Everyone from all sides has already apologized but you didn’t know that and now you do. So let’s just move on and be done with it until the next time it happens and then we’ll all have some more fun! I wore up late today so this will be published late. I like to try and be done around 12-1pm but it’s 2pm and I am just starting. It’s almost goddamn Beer on the Balcony time so let’s get this started!
Johnny Depp’s third movie this year will be The Rum Diariy which was shot back in 2009 and is based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same name. Many of you should recall that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was another Depp film based on a book by Hunter so I expect this to be a wild ride as well. The Rum Diary hits theaters October 28th.
Game of Thrones has cast the part of pirate Salladhor Saan. Lucian Msamati will play the role in the much anticipated 2nd season. Salladhor Saan is a mercenary pirate pledged to the late King Robert’s brother Stannis. Hey bro, my couch from the 70’s called and it wants its upholstery back.
Epic Games announced the final map for the upcoming Gears of War 3, Gridlock. The map has been modified and revamped from the previous two Gears of War games and will feature new weapon spawns, better graphics and will have a darker nigh time setting. Epic also confirmed that Gears 3 will feature a skill based lobby that will allow newer players to compete against people like me who totally suck and have a kill to death ratio of like -5000.
Dreamworks has acquired the rights to turn Karen Marie Moning’s book series into films. There are five books in total and the first one is called Darkfever. and I have never heard of these before. Apparently there’s some vampires and uh other supernatural type stuff and I fully expect it to be just another Twilightesque teen ridden piece of garbage because it’s a young adult book series. Of course anything can happen but who has any sort of faith in Hollywood to make this NOT be another Twilight? Yea, me either.
Great news Nintendo and Sonic fans! Sonic CD is coming once again and this time it will be a re-worked version of the classic game that will include nearly all of the original music from both the European and Japanese versions of the title. Look for it on XBLA, PSN, PC, iPhone/iPad, Android and Windows Phone 7 later this year. Oh wait. There isn’t any Nintendo platform listed there. Why is that? Because as Sega basically said, the Wii is garbage and the WiiWare service doesn’t have the power it takes to handle the soundtrack. And people wonder why I give Nintendo so much crap.
Short clip from The Avengers filming location which you can see Loki(Tom Hiddleston) and Captain America(Chris Evans) going through some fight choreography.
Valve released a trailer for Counter-Strike: Global Offense which they will be showing off that PAX Prime this weekend. Along with the trailer comes news that Valve will be having a Counter-Srike Steam sale that will have six games for a whopping $7.49. Games include Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, and Counter-Strike: Source.
If you’re a DLC fan and like to get that extra content right away then the Xbox 360 version of Skyrim might be the one you want to get. Microsoft and Bethesda have an exclusivity deal that will see 360 owners get first dibs on the first 2 DLC drops at least a month before any other platform. Suck it Sony nerds! Smart 360 owners will just wait until it eventually makes its way to the marketplace as a Deal of the Week at 50% off anyway so this doesn’t really even matter to me.
That picture is a fake so don’t go looking for news about an ESPN 360 coming out because it’s not happening. What 360 owners who have XBL Gold can look forward to though is an update to the EPSN3 content which is actually available right now as I type this up. You will have the ability to watch two live sports events at the same time via a split screen in 720p resolutions. That’s pretty cool man. Some other stuff you will get is a new guide that shows off what’s being offered on ESPN3 on the bottom of the screen. College football is just getting started(in the US) and there will be a new scoreboard which allows fans to check out an updated list of the week’s scores from the college scene on the right side of the screen while you watch your favorite game on the left side. You can also tag which future games are coming up and be reminded of them. There’s also a new MySports feature that will let you customize which games and game genres you are interested in seeing on the ESPN3 channel with news and highlights. Finally there’s now ESPN BottomLine, a new feature that offers up breaking news from the sports world. People can say whatever they want about the 360 but the console getting ESPN3 is what prompted me to get rid of the majority of my cable and save $100 a month. On top of ESPN3, MS mentioned more TV content coming to the 360 with this Falls update but no real word on exactly what that will be.
One last bit of news and it’s about PAX and the Xbox 360 this weekend. One very lucky person at PAX will be able to win the console below. Batman Fucking Arkham Asylum, bitches! Again, Suck it PS3 nerds! Warner Bros isn’t saying how you can win the console but apparently Microsoft will be giving away more Batman consoles in the near future. Whatever man, make it a console bundle for the games release and you got at least one sale right here bro. Check the pics out!
For me it’s Beer on the Balcony time! See ya Monday dudes and chicks! Have a great weekend!
Beyonce all oiled up and sexy as hell in her new video for 1+1 which you can see her perform live at the 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards, Sunday, Aug. 28, at 9 p.m. ET. I don’t really like the song but damn his video is hot and she looks great.
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).

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!

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.

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?
