   Episode IV finally came out on October 10, 2012. The group is just arriving in Savannah, which is a ghost town. There are some surprising events in Around Every Corner. The choices you make in this one are not as heart felt as in Episode III, they seemed to go back to giving you some simple chooses to make. And the end will leave you in shock.

Lee is holding on to it to see if the unknown man talking to Clementine tries to contact her now that they were in Savannah. As they make there way down the streets, Christa asks Omid if he needs to get off his leg. You can now chose to ask Kenny to stop and rest, or just say that you need to press on. I said to press on. Shortly after church bells start ringing and Lee sees a figure running away form the bells on the roof. Just then the unknown man chimes in and tells them they better get off the streets.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING....OR WHATEVER

  Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who follows me. I look at this day as a day off from work and a day to eat a lot of food. Also a day of football. If you see this day as a day that you give thanks for something, then I say go for it. I personally got out of being thankful for stuff a long time ago. I get tried of hearing, oh well there are people out there worst off then you are, well I don't know them and they don't know me. They could careless about my problems so why should I care about there's.  Might sound sad or petty, but that's how life goes now a days. So at the end of the day, eat a lot of turkey and food in general. Happy Thanksgiving and have a great day!!

OAKLAND ATHLETICS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS


   Hell yeah baby! The Oakland Athletics make the playoffs for the first time since 2006! At the beginning of the year no one was giving the A's love or thought they would be in the spot they are in! Us fans had little hope for a playoff season. There was even a analyst who said at the start of the baseball season that the A's would lose 100 games. I would love to see what they got to say now!! With the win tonight over the Texas Rangers we are in the playoffs, also knocking out and crushing the dreams of the Anaheim Angels and Tampa Bay Rays in the wild-card race. Right now we only have a wild-card spot, but if we can sweep the Rangers we will take the AL West Division Title!  Either way we will be in the playoffs, and either way the Oakland Athletics will make a statemented in the playoffs!!! This is a very exciting time to be a A's fan!! Lets keep up the great ball playing, and lets keep doing the BERNIE!! LET'S GO OAKLAND!!

THE WORLD OF PRIMAL RAGE!!

   Primal Rage was a two player fighting game that came out in 1994. Atari Games was the developer and publisher. Primal Rage could not only be found as a fighting game, but also as a comics, toys, and a novel. There were many different fun and brutal characters in Primal Rage. There was also a big controversy behind the game. Primal Rage also changed the way some video games were made.

   The game play for Primal Rage was a two-dimensional fighting system. The two player fighting game allowed players to select there characters to battle one on one. In single player mode you fought through a campaign against the CPU where the difficulty would increases as you play. In the final battle of the campaign mode, you have to fight all the other characters and they all have increased power bars. There was also a "Game Gore" mode that made the game more bloody and when you defeated you opponent there heart would explode and there brain would dissolve to ashes in a bloody mess. Human tribesmen that where around the battle field and are worship there Gods can be eaten to give you more heath, but if you ate one of your worshipers you will be penalize.

OAKLAND ATHLETICS ARE ON FIRE

   Who would have thought that heading into September that the A's would be three games out from being in first place in the division and also be in the number one spot for the Wild Card. With September just starting the A's have really heated up. The playoffs are only a month away and the with the A's pitchers shutting down hitters and the A's hitters knocking the ball around like no tomorrow, there are little worries that the A's will miss them.

CBS declaring that ABC stole the bases of their show.

ZOMBIES: WALKING VS RUNNING, WHICH DO YOU THINK WOULD APPEAR?

   Zombies have been feared for many years. There have been many different movies and video games showing zombies that could walk and run. There have been a lot of debate on whither a zombie would be able to walk or be able to run. When a lot of zombie films first came out, zombies could only walk. Later coming more into a modern age of film making, film makers started having zombies running fast as if they were all marathon runners. Even video games went from walking zombies to running. If a zombie apocalypse happens, would we be fighting to survive against a army of undead walkers or runners?

LAW & ORDER:SVU EPISODE DOUBT

   One of my favorite show is Law & Order. Now there are different versions of Law & Order, my favorite is Criminal Intent. I still watch all the other ones. Well I was watching SVU(Special Victims Unit) today and they had the episode Doubt on. Doubt was a great episode that kept you going back and forth on whether there was a rape or if the sex was consensual. They build you up all the way till the end and then the frustration sets in!

   The episode starts with Myra, a graduate school student, claims she was raped. She tell the officers that she was raped by a man named Ron, one of her professors. When Ron is brought in for questioning, he tells Detective Stabler and Benson that the sex was consensual. When asked about all the bruises and marks all over Myra's body, Ron said she asked him to do that. Ron says he did not want to do it, and when he refused Myra would drag her nails across his back and arms until she drew blood. At that point he want it to be done, so he choked her and man handled her as she wanted.

   So I have turned 30 years old back on Thursday May 3, 2012. I was not completely looking forward to this day, but it has come and past and nothing really has changed from 29.

There are no real objectives other then survival.

A ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE


BOOM!  The sound of the bowling ball hitting the pins. 

"Damn Freddy!! Another strike? Your killing me this game," said Tommy. 

"What can I say man, I been practicing while you been getting shot down by the ladies," Freddy said, laughing. Freddy and Tommy were always giving each other a bad time. Friends for over 10 years, they meet back in the 7th grade when they were both 13. With little luck, Tommy was always chasing women. Not that he was not a good looking guy, skinny with his short dark black hair and light green eyes, but he was always saying the wrong thing and using corny pickup lines.

SAN JOSE SHARKS VS LOS ANGELES KINGS 4-5-2012

   Man oh man this game was intense! The Sharks are battling for first place in the Pacific Division. The owner of that title at the moment are the Kings. So it is so fitting that the last two games of the season the Sharks will be playing the Kings. No matter what the out come of there next meet is, the Sharks are going to be in the Playoffs. But there is a big difference between being the 8th seed and the 3rd seed.
   So on to tonight's game. The Kings where home tonight. There were fights though out the whole game. The Sharks spent most of the first period in the penalty box. The Kings scored the first goal of the night by Martinez. About eight minutes after that, the Sharks fired back and score themselves with a goal from Demers. That was the only scoring in the first period. The period did end with 4 minutes left from a five minute penalty from a Kings' player Fraser with a illegal hit from behind on Sharks' player Couture.

THE GODS AND TITANS RETURN IN WRATH OF THE TITANS

   Wrath Of Th Titans just release and so I went to check it out. I was curious about how this movie was going to be. I was not a big fan of the remake to Clash Of The Titans. I thought some of the stuff thy put in the movie and the order of things were off from the original. Maybe I am just to much of a fan of the original and compared it to close. It was a good movie at the end of the day. I thought it was interesting that they made a squeal to Clash Of The Titans. When I saw the preview for Wrath Of The Titans I go to say that I got pretty excited.
   The movie starts off with the hero of Clash Of The Titans and demigod, son of Zeus, Perseus standing over his wife's grave. Over ten years have passed since Perseus had defeated the Kraken. Perseus now has a ten year old son named Helius. Perseus no longer fights and is now a fisherman. He does not want his son to be a fighter and makes sure that he learns books and studies. Perseus made a promise to his late wife that he would not let Helius become a fighter.

SURVIVING THE HORROR THAT IS SILENT HILL DOWNPOUR

   Now that I put down my personal thoughts on Silent Hill Downpour, I am going to write about the characters and events that happen in Downpour. Your main character is Murphy Pendleton, a convicted who has lost his 6 year old son. Murphy is being transported to another prison in the opening scene when the bus he is being transferred in veer's over the road and crashes in a lake.

MY TIME SPENT IN SILENT HILL DOWNPOUR

   Silent Hill has always been a  great horror game series. I have played all of the games but Silent Hill Origins  that was on the PSP and the new one that just came out for the PS Vita called Silent Hill Book Of Memories. I have loved the series, even though I was not completely into Silent Hill 2, it's still a good game. When I heard that a new Silent Hill was coming out, the wife and I got really excited. Silent Hill has always delivered a great twisted story, monsters that are disturbing and creepy, and a dark, grimy and gory scenery to try to survive in. The game messes with your head and freaks you out. And who doesn't love Pyramid Head?

The walkers start heading in the direction of the helicopter. As the walkers start following the helicopter and gather in numbers. They just keep wondering and wondering, running into and through everything they come across. They eventually make there way not to far from where Shane is kill outside of the farm. When Carl's gun goes off, they immediately stop heading the way they are headed and turn towards Carl and Rick. Oblivious to the massive hoard behind them, Carl and Rick start back to the farm. They stop to talk about Shane for a moment and hear a noise behind them, Rick turns and seeing the hoard of walkers, garbs Carl and starts running back towards the farm.

A FIRST FOR ME ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY

   My St. Patrick's Day was a pretty good one. Did not really do much like I normally do. Usually my friends and I would get together and go to a bar or just hang out at the house and drink some green beer. And I always try a good place to get some corned beef and cabbage. And of course made sure I was wearing my green.
   I am part Irish so I like doing the whole wearing green and having a green beer. But this year I did not go out with my friends. We had plans to head out with a couple of friends but a lot of them cancelled and the plans fell through. But its all good, had a good time at home playing some video games. I also did something I had never done before, and cooked corned beef and cabbage for the first time.

THE WALKING DEAD EPISODE 2.12 BETTER ANGELS

   I just got done watching the latest episode of The Walking Dead called Better Angels. Yeah I know I am a little late on watching this episode and writing this up, but things came up. So to recap a little from the last episode, they did not kill Randell and still have him locked up in a barn. Carl found a walker stuck in the mud and was going to kill it, but it got freed and Carl took off running. After everyone decided against Dale about keeping Randell alive, he tells Darrel the group is broken. He then went for a walk and found a cow with it's guts ripped out. Dale was then attacked by the walker that Carl encountered earlier, and had his stomach ripped open. Just as that happens, the group catches up to where Dale is being attack and Darrel kills the walker. Now everyone are standing over Dale crying and Rick could not pull the trigger to finish off Dale because they could not save him. Darrel takes the gun tells Dale,"Sorry brother", and kills Dale.
   Better Angels starts off with Rick doing a monologue about the group and Dale. As Rick is talking they show Shane driving a truck with Andrea, Theodore, and Darrel scouting for walkers. They find a bunch of walkers and take out there frustrations on them. After that scene, the group is standing around Dale's grave. Rick talks about how that Dale had a rare quality on how he could read people and see what type of person you were. Rick also said that the group needed to stay strong and prove Dale wrong by getting together and not being a broken group.

THE WALKING DEAD EPISODE 2.11 JUDGE, JURY, EXECUTIONER

   I just got done watching the latest episode of AMC's hit show The Walking Dead. The name of the episode was called Judge, Jury, Executioner. This episode gave me a bunch of different emotions. From being mad and pissed off, to upset and sad. It was a very good episode that had me also yelling at the T.V. with my opinion of what the characters in the show should be doing, as if they could hear me.
   The show starts off with Daryl interrogating Randell by beating the crap out of him. Daryl is trying to find out about the group Randell was in that left him for dead. Randell at first was trying to say that he did not know anything and that he was just rolling with them to be safe. After Daryl pulled out his knife, Randell spilled his guts. He told Daryl how there were about 30 guys in his camp, including women and children. That they had automatic weapons and how they raped women. He tried pleading to Daryl that he was not like the rest of that camp and not to kill him.

ASSASSIN'S CREED III NEW GAME COVER REVILED

    The upcoming game Assassin's Creed III cover art was reviled. Well it was suppose to be reviled on March 5, but it was leaked a Best Buy tipster. I can only guess that they got a poster to advise the game early and someone from a Best Buy store sent a image of it to Kotaku. For those who don't know, Kotaku is a video game information site.

BEST GAME ON THE SUPER NINTENDO..SUPER METROID

   Back when I first started my blog I wrote about one of my favorite games, Super Metroid. I went back and read it, and did not think I put enough effort into that post, so I decided to write another one with more info. Having said that, in my opinion Super Metroid was the best game on the Super Nintendo. I know a lot of people will disagree with  me, but as I said before, this in is my opinion. I would like to think that no one would argue that Super Metroid has at least got to be in the top five Super Nintendo games of all time. Super Metroid was released in North America April 18, 1994. Samus Aran is the main character as she was in Metroid her first game for the NES in 1986, and her second game Metroid II: Return Of Samus for the Game Boy in 1992.

   Super Metroid starts off right where Metroid II left off. Samus is doing a report on her first two mission. She reports that after a Metroid larva hatches, the first thing it sees is Samus. Being the first thing the Metroid saw, it thought that Samus was it's mother. Samus collects the Metroid and brings it to Ceres Space Colony in hopes that the scientists could learn more about it. Samus leaves the space colony thinking all is well. Shortly after leaving she receive a distress call from Ceres and she head back. This is when you take control of Samus. When you arrive, you find all the scientists dead and the Metroid larva missing. As you search the colony, you find the larva in a back room. As soon as you go for the Larva, Samus's old enemy Radley, the leader of the Space Pirates, appears and grabs the Metroid. After a quick battle Radley flees and Ceres Space Colony goes into a self-destruct mode. You now have to beat the count down and rush back to your ship. Once you get to the ship you escape the colony and follow Radley to the Space Pirate's home planet, the planet Zebes.

ONE OF THE DEFINITIONS OF HAVING NO CLASS, THINKING YOUR BETTER THEN SOMEONE ELSE

   You know something that really makes me laugh? Is when a guy or girl, gets with someone and completely  changes who they are. How all of a sudden, there friends are not good enough for him, cause she has a problem with them. I have never understood how someone can just turn there back on there friends and change who they are for a girl.

   Having said that, last night I had a big fall out with someone I thought was a friend. Now I know I am not the easiest guy to get a long with. I am very opinionated and talk loud. I speak my mine and tell it as it is. People tend to not like hearing the truth. One saying I have always lived by is, a friend will tell you what you want to hear, a true friend will tell you what you need to hear. I truly believe in that saying. Now having say all that, I am a loyal friend. I will have your back and if I can help you out if your struggling, I will. I would give you my shirt off my back if needed.

GREATEST EPISODE OF YOUNG JUSTICE....EPISODE 16 "FAILSAFE"

   In writing a review on the new RPG video game Young Justice: Legacy that comes out in 2013, it really got me thinking about my favorite episode of the cartoon, Failsafe. This episode might be one of my favorite cartoon episodes ever. The writers really need credit for this one. I watched Failsafe over and over because it was not only a great episode, but it was a trip. At the end you were like,"Wait, WHAT?!" You connect with the characters.
   So the show starts up with the Young Justice team along side Red Tornado in Mount Justice watching a unknown alien ship heading towards Earth. The ship is met by Superman, Green Lantern, Caption Atom, Martian Manhunter, Caption Marvel, and Batman. Green Lantern tells the alien ship to identify themselves and there business. Next thing you see is a big bright light come out of the ship vaporizing Green Lantern. The rest of the team go into attack mode, all for not as they too get vaporized. Knowing that the team needs him, Red Tornado tells the Young Justice team to stay put for now, and takes off to help the rest of the League.

UPDATED ON A TEST THAT COULD CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER

   Well I took the test and failed. I studied my ass off for this test. Even took a special class for it. And the end result is the same. Done with that chapter in my life. I knew I was not going to be able to do other kind of work outside of physical work. See the thing is I know my limits, learned to expect them a long time ago. I know how smart I am. But everyone else, friends and family, all kept say,"Oh you got this, believe in yourself, we do. We know you can do it!" I knew better to buy into that crap, but I still did. I got myself all pumped up, thinking, yeah I do got this shit.

A TEST THAT COULD CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER.......PHLEBOTOMY LICENSE TEST

   Tomorrow morning at nine A.M. sharp I am taking a test. The test is to get my Phlebotomy licenses so I can draw blood. All the schooling and externship are done, now to finish everything before looking for a job is to get the license. I need to keep the nerves in check.
   Phlebotomy was a job I really never thought I would do. Always was more of a physical worker. Did jobs like moving furniture, fixing appliances, or working in warehouses. Been better working with my hands and figuring things out by taking things apart and fixing them. Use to being out on the road, and not staying in one place. But when I hurt my hip and then my wrist, things had to change. I still need to make money some how, and support my wife and the family we want to have. No kids at the moment, and we want kids. So I needed something to be able to safe money.

DC COMIC'S CARTOON TO BECOME NEW RPG.....YOUNG JUSTICE: LEGACY

  Young Justice is a DC Comic's cartoon that airs on cartoon network. And I personally love this cartoon. As I said before, I am more a Marvel guy, but DC has been really good about making shows and comics about sidekicks. Teen Titans, although very different style from Young Justice, was another great sidekick cartoon from DC that does not focus on the big name superheros, and help you get to know more about our heroes of tomorrow. Episode 16 of Young Justice called Failsafe was a awesome episode that was a major trip and had me watching it over and over.

HITTING A MILESTONE

  In  three months I will be turning thirty years old. And wail in a way I am not looking forward to it, I don't feel like I am still that old. It was not that big of a deal when I left my teens. I mean who does not look forward to hitting twenty one. Even if your not a drinker, at twenty one you're officially a adult and no one can really tell you what you can or can not do. I honestly don't feel like when I hit thirty that its all down hill from there. Now having said that, I look back at my life and see that I am not where I thought I would be. At the age of twenty nine looking at thirty approaching fast, I wonder what things I could have done differently, the people I have meet, and choices I have made.

WWE ELIMINATION CHAMBER 2012

  Yesterday, 2/19/2012, was the WWE's Pay-Per-View event, the Elimination Chamber. This is the event were they have six wrestlers fighting for the belt in a huge cage called by the same name of the Pay-Per-View, the Elimination Chamber. The chamber is a giant cage with four pods one in each corner of the chamber. The first four wrestlers to come out for the match go into one of the four pods, where they are locked in that pod until five minutes goes by and then they are randomly released one by one. The last two to come out start the match off. The only way to be eliminated from the match is to be pinned or to tap out from submission. The last man standing becomes the new champion. They normally have two chamber match for the show, one for the Raw brand, and one for the Smackdown brand.  The chamber matches are not the only matches they have at the Pay-Per-View.

OAKLAND A'S BASEBALL IS ALMOST HERE

  Football season has come and gone, and now it getting time to bust out the peanuts and Cracker Jack's because baseball season is right around the corner. Baseball is my second favorite sport next to football. Now I am a Oakland A's fan, always have been. And even though I am looking forward to the upcoming season, at the same time I am not. I love my Oakland A's, but with all the trades they have been making lately it has been driving me crazy. Now a lot of people are saying it because they owner of the Oakland A's wants to move the team to another city. They are looking at staying in California and moving down the 880 freeway from Oakland to Fremont. Now I hear they are looking at moving to even further down the 880 freeway to San Jose. Personally I wish they would just re-built the stadium they are at now, and stay in Oakland. Now I know they share the stadium with the Oakland Raiders, but if they re-built the stadium to compensate both teams, I don't understand why it could not work.

DOUG IS STILL AWESOME!

  So today I was watching a old episode of the hit 90's cartoon Doug. Doug was a cartoon that ran on Nickelodeon from 1991-1994 and Disney from 1996-1999. Doug was about a kid who lived in a town called  Bluffington who has a wild imagination and writes about his day every night in his journal. Doug goes to Bluffington High and lives at home with his mom and dad and his sister Judy, who is into drama and plays. He also lives with his trustful dog Porkchop.His best friend is Skeeter who is very trust worthy and also was his first friend when he moved to Bluffington. The love interest of Doug is Patti Mayonnaise. And he was always bullied by Rodger Klotz, who was also oddly a friend too.
