GTAOnlineHave some good news to share.  If you are a Grand Theft Auto V and have tried Grand Theft Auto Online this past week or so.  You know there was some problems as you know.  Turns out RockStar Games is going to give every one who has played 500,000 GTA$ (in game money).  We will getting this some time next week.  It will be give out in two parts the second $250, 000 will be given out at the end of the month.  For this to work for you need to:

  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

Think this is pretty sweet.  I know I will be buying a nice apartment and some sweet cars.

Gamespot-iconOne of my favourite game websites, Gamespot.com got a very big face lift.   I visit this site every day and over the years it has had some changes.  They are saying this is the biggest redesigns from the past 17 years.  Do like the new design but will take some time getting uses to.   It has a fresh look to it.  All most looks like a blog like.   Sure there will be a few bugs to work out.  With a site this big and with so many users it will take some time.  Go check them out.  Below is a video talking about the changes they have made over the past 17 years.

WhyGrizzlyBearsShouldWearUnderpantsPicked up a copy of Matthew Inman’s newest book, Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants.  If you don’t recognize his name you might know The Oatmeal.com.   He is the guy that makes all this awesome comics and what not.  Do believe this is his fourth book.  I have one other called, How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill you.  Which was funny as hell.  So know this new one will be just as good.  You can find it just about any were.  I found my copy at Wal-mart.  Just like the book it is well put together.  The pages are nice and crisp with awesome colour.   Very much recommend checking his work out.  Just go to the website.  You will have lots of laughs.

Arrow.jpgThis time of year is all ways good for watching TV.  New shows start and others come back.  I am looking forward to season two of Arrow.  The first season was very good.  Thing the second will be even better.  Think there will be more of hero’s and more action.  Well that’s my hope any way.  There is a rumour the The Flash will be in there at some point and get his own spin off how.  That would be cool.  If they do it right.  You can check out a trailer for season two > here or below.  The season kicks of October 9, 2013.  Which happens to be tomorrow night .

TheOath.jpgThese three webisodes called The Oath are the lead up to season four The Walking Dead.  This is the third time they have and webisodes out just before the new season starts.  Think this is a great idea.  They are a  some what standalone videos set in the Walking Dead world.  They story will tie into season four so how.  If you have not seem them let go check them out.  Think they are the best webisodes yet.

CowsYou may know that I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones.  A co-worked was heading over to P.E.I. and told me there was a t-shit over at the at the famous Cows ice cream shop.  Who are all so famous for the t-shit and other products.  I can remember back when I was a kid got to P.E.I. and going to the ice cream shop.  Found a t-shit I just had to have.  Still have it to this day.  It has a cow in a field with a Walkman on.   Now back to the new stuff now they have shirts playing off of other famous stuff.  One is called Game Of Cones.   So she said she would pick one up for me and she did.  Have to say it is pretty sweet.  You can check out what it looks like by clicking the link above or just  looks at the picture below.

Canada’s Worst Driver 9

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2013 by getbent57

CanadasWorstDriver9One of the funniest shows is coming back for a ninth season, Canada’s Worst Diver.  This time around they are calling it Canada’s Worst Driver Ever.  It is kind of like an all star season because they are bring back some past “winners” and those who came in second.  This will have the biggest cast yet with nine people.  This is one of those show I look forward to each fall just to see how bad some people  are at driving.  If you see past seasons you know these people suck.  So it will be interesting to see if they have improved since we last seem them.  My bet will be no.  The show starts up again October 21, 2013.  Not sure how many episode’s there will be.  My guess is eight just like the past few seasons.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Webisodes

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 3, 2013 by getbent57

TheOathLike season two and three The Walking Dead season four will have a webisodes for the official season starts.  These webisdoes are all ways good.  They show a different view point from other survivors.  Their show ties into the main storyline in spots.  For example, if you remember from the first season when Rick finds a bicycle next to half a zombie.  Season two webisodes focus on her story and how she ended up that way.   The three part series is tilted The Oath.  They will come out October 1, 2013.  On Amc.com and their YouTube Channel.   Season four starts October 13, 2013.  So looking forward to seeing all this Walking Dead stuff.

[update] I know today is the Third but that is one of the pit falls of writing blog post in advance.  Oh you can still check them out > here.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on October 2, 2013 by getbent57

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Have seen the first episode of the new TV show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD..  What interesting about this show is it takes place i the same world as the past few years Marvel’s movies.  In this world it takes place right after the 2012 movie The Avengers.  When I first heard about this show.  Didn’t think it would be that good.  But I was very surprised at how just good it is.  Mind you it was only one episode.  Not sure if the show will follow the new TV trend of each episode blending into the next.  Or the old way each episode as a standalone.  Time will tell.  I know I will be watching just to see how it all turns out.

[Update]  Had this post typed up after the first episode air but did not post it until today. The day after the second episode aired.  Am very impressed with the second episode.  Will be watching the whole season.  Very good show.
