My new Background

Hey guys, I just wanna let you know about my new background, my friend over at made this background for me and he would appreciate it if you go check out his blog.

Little Big Planet!

Hello everyone, I want to tell you about one of my favorite games, Little Big Planet. While looking at the cover and playing through the campaign might make it seem like a child's game, there are so many things you can create in the create mode! While Little Big Planet's create mode didn't have much electronic and mechanical options, LBP2 brought a whole new array of mechanical tools.
I have created so much stuff in LBP's create mode that I don't even remember most of them. My best project is one that I am working on with a friend. It is a Left 4 Dead-esque zombie killer with advanced zombies, utilizing the Sackbots and Creatinator. Sackbots are, well Sackboys (or girls) with robotic programming built into them. The creatinator is a Helmet with a shooter at the end of it, which can shoot virtually anything that will fit, be it a bullet or a train. 

The first part is (imo) awesome, but we have started the second part and just kind of left it on hiatus for about a month. I want to get back to working on it. When we finally publish the first part, probably this weekend or the next, I will post the name so those of you with a Playstation 3 and LBP2 can go play it if you desire. 

So back to the game, there are so many things you can do with it. Don't pass it off as a kid's game. Seriously, try it, if you have an imagination and you are creative, this game will be so fun, and not as mindless as (dare I say it?) a shooter.

New Battlefield 3 Trailer... for a trailer

That's what these guys are saying. Sure it's a short trailer, but what's so bad? Would you rather have nothing then a short 25 second clip?
The top rated comment just pissed me off:

"Just release the fricking game instead of wasting your time coming out with 100 unnecessary trailers." - indirulz1234 

They made a release date already, what does making trailer have anything to do with it? They're trying to promote the game. 

I can't say that I necessarily like the video, considering only about 12 seconds of it is actual gameplay, (and it's really grinding my gears that gameplay is not a word and the stupid red lines come underneath it every single time I write gameplay).

Well, I'm not going to be able to play the beta, except for going over to my friend's house who is going to have the beta since he actually has a computer not built in 2003. 

Hopefully it's fun though!

Check out my friend's channel

This is my friend Joey's channel, where he puts out Black Ops and MW2 videos. He only has 3 videos out right now, so if you could support him, that would be great! He has a weird taste in music though.

The Office Season 8

The Office, one of my favorite shows is premiering its 8th season tonight at 9pm and will air new episodes (hopefully) every week on Thursdays at 9pm. To be honest, I don't know whether to be excited or disappointed. As most Office followers know, Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, has left the show, and it is unknown who is going to be the replacement, though the sneak peeks suggest that it is going to be James Spader who is going to take over the manager position.
Although I am excited for the new season, in my opinion, I think the show will go downhill because of Carell's absence.
If Carrel returns ever even once, even just his voice, I will cry.

COD Zombies

I got to tell you, I hate the multiplayer part of Black Ops which is why I returned it to get MW2. But the zombies is awesome. Whenever I go to a friend's house, we play zombies. It starts out slow, but after you get past round 15-20, it is loads of fun. I remember when WAW came out and I torrented it for my PC, and after I beat the campaign, I still played zombies for a couple of weeks, just by myself. It is not scary, as Treyarch wanted it to be, but it still gives you a thrill. I even got the app for my iPod and bought all the map packs. Let me share some records:
On Nacht der Untoten I got to round 29 solo, and round 46 on the iPod version with a friend.
On Verruckt I got to round 32 solo, and round 39 on the iPod with a friend.
On Shi no Numa, I got to round 22 solo, and with a friend we got both the Wunderwaffe DG-2 using an easter egg, and we could pretty much go on forever, but we stopped at level 50, due to getting bored.
On Der Riese, solo I got to round 19 (so good :D) and with 2 friends I got to round 40 with friends.
On Kino der Toten, I got to round 37 solo, and round 37 multiplayer with my friend on Black Ops.
On Ascension, I got to round 18 solo, and round 36 with 3 friends.

Minecraft 1.8 finally released

I know, I know, so many freaking posts about Minecraft, but this is important. As you know 1.8 was prereleased last weekend, but now it was released for real.
Notch's tweet confirms this:
We just uploaded Minecraft 1.8, but isn't up right now because of web ops stuff.
Well have fun playing legit 1.8!

Minecraft 1.8 LEAKED!

I know, I know, so many posts about Minecraft 1.8, but this is important! Minecraft 1.8 has been leaked!
It was leaked on Reddit, but later Notch said that it was OK that people used it. Jeb, a Minecraft Developer was most likely the one that leaked it, he said that he would release it if he solved a problem for "expert users". 
I didn't download it (because I don't have a Minecraft account lol) and I don't have a computer good enough to run it, but you can have fun with it!

New Minecraft 1.8 Trailer

Check out this new trailer, can't wait, although I probably will not get to play it because of the absence of a good computer at my house. :(.

Also check out the creators of the trailer:

It's amazing how much you can save if you build your own computer!

Hey guys, I wanted to give you an update on my computer set-up because it has changed.
Here's my info again:

Biostar A880G+ MATX Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2 GHz (can unlock the other 2 cores to get and x4 saving me $32!)

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) (going to overclock to 1600)

Case WITH PSU!!!!
COOLER MASTER Elite RC-310-OWR460 Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case RS-460-PSAR-J3, Elite 460W Power Supply (I just saw this recently and it saved me $20)

Hard Drive
Western Digital 500 GB Sata 6.0 Gb-s 16 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare-oem Drives

Sony 24X SATA Internal DVD+/-RW Drive AD-7260S-0B - Bulk (Black)

Graphics Card
XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670 1 GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card

2x MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Fan



Logitech S-220 17 Watts 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System - OEM
$23.99 (no shipping)

My friend is giving me a keyboard mouse combo for free and I will just buy a $40 desk from craigslist or something and will use my 22" TV as a monitor.

Overall with the Speakers its about $440, so I will probably be able to get it by 2 months from now.

Compare this to a similar computer that you buy already built without speakers and its about $650.

Also, building a computer will give you skill with computers, which is a very good choice if you are interested in a computer related career.

Also why the hell would you buy a Mac Laptop for $1300 when you could buy a PC with the same specs for around $800? Not a Mac hater, I would definitely buy a Mac if I was rich, but PC's just seem so much better at a better price!

New House Season Starts Oct 3

Hey guys, I just wanted to give you guys an update on one of my favorite TV shows: House. I did not get much into it until season 5, and since then I'm pretty sure I have watched every episode and some others from seasons 1-4 on Hulu and other websites. I gotta say, I'm pretty psyched for season 8. The season 7 finale was very strange, it showed Gregory House crashing into Lisa Cuddy's house with his car, returning her brush, and walking away. I hope this is not the final season, but it might be, as House is going to prison and it is a huge difference from past seasons. Also, Cuddy is not returning, but I wouldn't blame her, dealing with House like that. I can't wait until October 3!

Minecraft 1.8

Minecraft 1.8 looks pretty cool! The thing that looks awesome is sprinting. I really don't know why Notch didn't add this before, but it's finally going to be here. Before, you walked oh so slowly to your destination, but now you can cut that time and get to your destination much faster. You can also attack enemies while sprinting, which launches them back, which will be useful for spiders and creepers. Another thing I like is that the biomes are are larger and much more defined, unlike before when you would get a 4x4 area of sand with one cactus, and it would be a desert. The ravines look cool, but look like they could also be an annoyance, if maybe you are walking around rendering more map and a ravine appears right in front of you. The endermen are very strange, but probably won't be annoying, unless you accidentally look at them and they start attacking you. AND FINALLY ZOMBIES WON'T DROP FEATHERS!!! Why it was like that, I have no idea. And chickens and cows will drop their own meat. There are also silverfish, which are little bugs, which I hate irl, they're just creepy and disgusting. Also blue spiders, which will be more rare but stronger than normal spiders. You can charge up the bow, which makes sense, so using a clicker or whatever people use to make their clicks faster will not work anymore. And they added critical hits, kind of like a very subtle trickshot from CoD, where you jump and hit. There is also more farming options, like the melon and plantable pumpkins. There is also a new food consuming animation, and you can stack food. 
Looks awesome!

COD XP MW3 Gameplay Thoughts

What's up guys? Well as you know COD XP is going on and they released some gameplay from MW3. It looks OK. The reason I say that is it looks like an update to MW2. I was thinking about getting it, but after I saw this video, I changed my mind. UMP45 returns. And it looks as cheap as Modern Warfare 2.
I wish I would get this game, but I don't have money, and I don't want to go through so much stress like I did in Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. Ugh, Black Ops. I heard it's better on Xbox, but from the videos I've seen of BO on Xbox, it doesn't look much better. But this post is about MW3. The only thing I am excited for is the Spec Ops, and I just hope that you can play 2 player online like in BO. That was a nice addition, I hope they bring it back, because most likely at least some of my friends will be getting it, and I can play with them. 
The other thing I like is that folding secondary gun, it looks beast.
