The Walking Dead: The Game Demo

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2012 by getbent57

Gave the demo for the downloadable game, The Walking Dead The Game a try.  Never tried one of these point and click games before.  From the videos I seen thought it might be some what cool.  While the game has a nice cel-shaded look.  What you do is with some what limited movement with one stick you use the other to move the curser around until it highlights some thing.  The you press a button.  Depending on the item you can press different buttons so different actions take place.  It is kind of boring.  It is more about the story telling then a fast past action game that most zombie games are.  Not my type of game so I will not be buying any of the episodes that came out.  Think there will be five in total.  But don’t stop that from any one from trying the demo out you might like it.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on April 29, 2012 by getbent57

MIGhostProtocol Well Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol started off strong.  It has some very cool gadgets and stunts that you get with a Mission Impossible movie.  Think this one was a lot better than the last.  Moved at a good pace.  Not getting caught up in a love story.  How ever falls into the same old, same old action movie clichés.  They must top the “bad Russian” from setting off a nuclear weapon.  Coming down to few seconds left to save the world.  It has been done so may times before.

This is not a bad movie.  Has a lot going for it.  Some very cool stunts and it doesn’t take it’s self too serious.  Which is nice.  What is wrong is the main plot.  It has been done some may times before.  While they try to put a new face on it and pretty it up.  It still has been done.  I did like the movie but only as a rent.  Can’t see myself watching this again.

Tailgating

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on April 28, 2012 by getbent57

StopSlowSign I have a strong dislike of tailgaters.  Not talking about tailgate parties but the people that dive to close to your car bumper.  I ride a motorcycle.  Yesterday while out for a ride came across some road constructing.  The flag person that had the stop sign up.  There was about five cars ahead of me.  So I stop, look back in my mirror and see another car roll up.  There is all kinds of room between us.  Shift my bike in to neutral and wait.  Look back in the mirror again.  The guy is slowly creeping closer and closer.  He is pretty much on my back tire at this point.  I thinking, buddy you can’t go any were.  Riding up on my back tire is not going make the guy turn the flag from stop to slow any faster.  Could go on and on about this subject since I get tailgated pretty much every time I go for a ride.  But I will stop ranting now.

Cycle World Magazine

CycleWorld Every now again I pick up a motorcycle magazine.  Today I got the May, 2012 issue of Cycle World.  Have got an issue or more of this magazine before.  Not sure why I bought this, they disappoint me every time.  The bike reviews seem to focus on every part of the engine and what not.  Seems to be geared towards the die hard motorcycle owners out there.  I am more of fan of the Motorcyclist magazine.  That ones articles are more well balanced.  All so seem to be written with every one in mind.  Making it much easier to read and understand.  Thinking about getting a subscription.  Just not sure yet.

1500 Posts

1500 Was trying to think what I should blog about today.  Then remembered something.  The other day when I was looking at the blog stats and see I was close to 1500 posts.  So this “post” will make 1500.  Must say that is kind of impressing.  Since I started doing this five years ago just as an experiment to see if I could keep a blog/website going.  Plan to keep going.  Would be pretty sweet to reach 2000 posts.

No, I am not the one who is “now playing” DiRT Showdown.  It is not out until the end of May.  But over at GameSpot.com every now and again the have a “Now Playing” video.  Were one or more people sit down and play and upcoming game.  The newest one as you might have guessed is about DiRT Showdown (Video below or click > here).  The guy that is taking is kind of funny.  As for the game itself it a only an early build but you can see that it looks pretty sweet.  The video is about 27 minutes long.  Didn’t watch the whole thing because I want to see the game for myself then it comes out.

Rihanna – We Found Love ft. Calvin Harris

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on April 24, 2012 by getbent57

Rihanna Have had the song We Found Love by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris stuck in my head for a few days.  If you know me I like a lot of techno like music (Other types of music as well).   It is one of those songs that sick with you.  Sound even better with a pair of headphones on.  That’s one of my favourite things to do is put some awesome song on my iPod and sit back and just listen.  While I really like song the video (below) is pretty crappy.  Has and interesting look.  Is the only good thing I can say about it.
