Raptors, Street Fighter 4, Motorola Motoprizm, Starcraft 2 Battle Reports

Labels: , , , ,

After this blog post, i am finally going to play WoW on my priest, if i can. But, anyways, for the past 3 hours or so, i've been rearranging my room. And i must say that i did a pretty good job. As soon as i get a DVI port i'm going to be running dual monitors with my laptop on the side. Pro-gaming to the max right there. I'm actually going to watch the raps game tonight on my TV. It's not on Rogers tonight because they're showing the game on TSN 2, a channel that Rogers doesn't have atm (at the moment). I'm going to be streaming it from my laptop and running dual monitors with my TV with a VGA port, i'm all ready for it. I can't wait... but anyways, blogging time.

So, Capcom has finally showed the world what the Street Fighter's 4 Collector's Edition set will look like for North America. Due to many complaints from fan's about the previous box art, they also decided to change it. It will be retailing for $79.99 (probably USD). With this Collector's Edition you get: the game, a limited edition figurine [Ryu for PS3 owners, C. Viper for 360 owners], a strategy guide, a CD soundtrack and some secret downloadable content that kotaku.com will be revealing soon. I can't wait for this and is yet another reason i want a next-generation console... =(. Please Christmas, please.

So, i've actually been talking a lot about Motorola lately, but there are actually confirmed news today. Motorola, themselves, have actually revealed a new touchscreen phone called the Motoprizm. Gizmodo.com points out that it looks a bit like the Motorola Krave, with a couple of tweaks. This phone is packed with a 2.8 inch touchscreen, has Bluetooth capability and packs a 3 megapixel camera. I don't really like any Motorola phones, but this one looks good. It is a flip phone, but the flipping part of it is actually glass, or clear plastic that you can actually see through. It looks pretty good, in my opinion. Good job Motorola!

"Blizzard has launched the first of their Starcraft II Battle Reports, featuring a 20 minute Protoss versus Terran match in an early alpha of the game with a full commentary accompanying the action." I actually watched this video and it was pretty amazing. Obviously, in the end, the asian guy won, David Kim, who played as Terran. It was pretty amazing. I actually don't keep up with many Blizzard Starcraft II new gameplay videos, but these are definitely ones i will be watching. It will give me new strategies seeing how the developers play against each other. I noticed that the banshees looked pretty strong in this footage and i actually thought that the Protoss were going to win early on in the fight. Anyways, if you want to watch it, it's a 20 minute match between Protoss and Terran, as stated above. The gameplay looks good though, i'm not gonna lie. Blizzard does have this game attracting many fans already, just incase i needed to point that out. If you want to watch the match, the link is just below.

School Canceled, Google and IE, Playstation 4, T-Mobile G2

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Last night, i slept a bit before 4 in the morning, not playing WoW, since Daniel changed his keybinds and i was too lazy to change them back. Anyways, so i woke up at around 11 a.m. and called my girlfriend. I looked outside and realized that there was no way i was going to get to her house today. We originally planned to go to the mall to finish our Christmas shopping, but that didn't work because of how much snow dropped. The snow must've started at around 5 or 6 in the morning because it didn't start snowing when i fell asleep. Anyways, because of the snow i couldn't leave the house, so i decided to go back to sleep. I woke up at around 2 or something and read my Google Reader. I picked my articles for the day and soon after my girlfriend woke up. I shoveled the snow off my driveway but before that, i took a picture (see above). Kind of a blurry picture [thanks to my Nokia N81], but you can clearly see a crap load of snow, hence why school was canceled today. Anyways, after i shoveled i put the salt on the ground or whatever, so that any incoming snow would melt. Little did i know, that it wouldn't work today. Anyways, i took a shower while my pizza was baking in the oven. After i finished showering, i ate my pizza. After about an hour of slacking, changing my blogger theme and all that stuff, my mom calls me. She tells me that she's right outside the townhouse gate and that her car got stuck in the snow. So fail. But anyways, after i came to the rescue, i was back inside my warm, comfy house. I was about to start playing WoW on my priest when i just realized that i must first blog and rearrange my room, which will take a couple of [dirty, dusty] hours.

Anyways, moving on to Google. They are now being more aggressive and are trying to push many users away from Internet Explorer. "When users log into their Gmail using Internet Explorer a red text link appears at the top right of page saying 'get faster Google Mail.'" When you click on that link it takes you to a "Google answers page" that ends up suggesting that you should change your browser to either Google Chrome or Firefox 3.0. This is great because now Gmail users around the world will hopefully be switching their browsers to other faster ones like Chrome or Firefox. These people have to realize that there are faster and more efficient ways to surf the Internet. If everyone realized this, IE's market share would be much lower than it currently is. It's good that IE's market share has actually dropped to under 70% recently. Maybe the change is coming soon.

Sony has been denying this for a long time now, so again i am going to state that Sony denies plans on an upcoming Playstation 4. That's basically the whole story, but it just saddens me. But, it's also good that they're not focusing on a next console, since they still have to figure out ways to sell their current system, Playstation 3. Maybe they can even outsell the DS somehow with the PSP, but that doesn't look like it'll happen. Moving on.

There is a rumour spreading that the T-Mobile G2 will be coming out on January 26, 2009. I agree with the author who says that he doesn't believe it because the G1 has only been out for a few months and to have the G2 release so soon, would be insane. But, anyways, the rumours state that the second Google phone, the G2, will have a full touch screen, a 5 megapixel camera and a bunch of other stuff that i'm too lazy to name. No pictures have surfaced, but it's really unbelievable. If new rumours surface, i'll talk about it, but, i don't think the rumours are true.

How does my new layout look? Tell me. I want to know your opinion.

WoW 10-day Trial, Dell XPS 13 and 'Adamo'

Labels: , , ,

Omfg, very important news. I will soon be back on my priest, but only for 10 days. So, now that WotLK is out, Blizzard is releasing free 10-day free trials. "To be eligible for the trial, you'll need both the full version of World of Warcraft and the first expansion The Burning Crusade. The offer is only extended to current or past subscribers to WoW." Also, "Additionally, you have to have a character that's at least level 55 (in order to try out the new Death Knight class) or level 68 (in order to travel to the new continent of Northrend). For obvious reasons, you're limited to only one free trial per account." So, looks like, i will be on my priest soon. Hey, Daniel, read this soon! I'll probably start on Saturday. Because tomorrow i might be busy and Saturday is always a good day to start. Oh wait, i could even start on Friday night. Anyways, i'm excited to be on my priest soon, ahh, can't wait to play as Shadow. Anyways, i'll be back later [possibly]. WoW time, for real now.

Sexy Dell Laptops are on their way. The new Dell Studio XPS 13 and the 'Adamo.' The Dell Studio XPS 13 looks really slick and sexy. This upcoming laptop will have leather on it. At this point, i'm not sure where, but i do know that there are parts of leather on the back of the laptop. The upcoming Dell 'Adamo' will be the "world's thinnest laptop." Take that Macbook Air. "The Adamo will sport a black and silver color scheme." Engadget states that they are actually trying to work on getting some photos of the Dell 'Adamo.' So, be on the lookout for my blog about the 'Adamo' in the future.
