Broken Record... Best Record

Here I am saying it again... Them Crooked Vultures is the best band alongside Foo Fighters. I'm listening to the album as we type/read for free on their website. Hit the link under my oh so cleverly titled blog title. Apologies to any readers I may have had for forcing you to do nothing but follow my gamerscore progression for a couple months. This music will make it up. Even if I took your cookie it would make it up. Here, take it: Them Crooked Vultures.


Long time no type

Well, here's another post. I have to spread the word about the ridiculousness of someone getting arrested for not using Twitter. Yep. Here's the link: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-10403864-71.html?tag=mncol;posts
And, some dude married a video game character. I had to pause and think about that one for a while after i typed it. Umm... here's the link: http://news.cnet.com/8301-10797_3-10404956-235.html
Aaand, people think games have too many war crimes. Link: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13506_3-10404450-17.html
What's next? PETA wants to ban Mario games because you step on turtles?

Yeah, I know they're all from the same site, but from what I can tell, it's a good site.
But seriously, you've got wars, famine, natural disasters, the highest unemployment in 26 years, and then... this. NOW, I know the world is ending. Not when 9/11 happened, not when the recession hit, but NOW. This is off the charts of stupidity. People are so stupid. You may know a stupid person; nay, you may even be one. It's a simple fix. The cure... just don't be stupid. I used to be stupid, but then I stopped. Right around the time I started this blog, in fact... almost 3 years ago. I kicked the stupid habit! See, when you're stupid, you don't know. You gotta have someone tell you. So here you go, I'm saving your life. YOU MAY BE STUPID. IF YOU ARE, DON'T BE.

Now that all that's out of the way, it's music recommendation time. Here are some of the best albums of all time:
There Is Nothing Left To Lose - Foo Fighters
Songs For The Deaf - Queens of the Stone Age
Them Crooked Vultures - Them Crooked Vultures

Now all of these have one thing in common; can you guess? Whoever does wins a bunch of web points (and by bunch I mean bunch).



I have a theory...

That Microsoft sucks at making consoles that don't break.


Infinite Shelled Things

And now for something entirely different. Halo 3: ODST has been almost fully unveiled, look for it on September 22. The hype hammer is just about in full swing.

Also, check out Them Crooked Vultures, the best thing ever. It's a band, with Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, and John Paul Jones. http://www.themcrookedvultures.com.


Happy 233rd Birthday America



Well, it's that time of year again, and just in case you aren't keeping up and happen to be reading this particular blog, you're in luck! Today you'll find out that there is a new Halo 3: ODST trailer out, showing off new characters, weapons, and a brief shot of a new gameplay mode, Firefight. They didn't say much about that. Anyway, there is also a new Halo game coming out, called...

Halo: Reach! I can't wait for this one. In this, you will, apparently, get to relive the Fall of Reach, the battle just before Halo 1 where all the Spartans (supposedly) died. If Chief and his fellow super-soldiers are Spartans, then this battle is their Thermopylae (like 300, for those who don't know Greek history).

Here's ODST

Here's Reach

(if they don't fit, click the video)

X-men Origins: Wolverine the Video Game

This game rocks. A lot.

Edit: After beating this game, I can say with all assuredness that this is the best movie game ever made. Ever. The movie was good, but this is better. If you want to be amazed and have an evisceratingly good time, I recommend this game. Unfortunately, it is too late to get the weapon-X arena bonus, but the game is still great without it. 9/10. Read the movie review here.


Quick update 4-13-09

It's snowing in April. The pirates got pwned by the Navy. There's a new Zelda game, something about a sky train. Same "Wind-Waker" guy. Gettin' tired of that. Oh well. Foo Fighters rule; they are releasing a "greatest hits" album this year. Beware the mist. Krakenkiller out.


Set Sail for Fail!

For the first time in 200 years, a ship flying the American flag was seized by pirates. This just shows how far this pirate problem has gone. The crew fought and took back the ship, but the captain is still a captive of the Somali pirates. 

Now is a great time for mercenaries and bounty hunters, with these nebulous enemies, the government wants deniable assets to take down ringleaders who are hiding in areas where a full military assault might not be wise. So, if any of you are considering being a Mattias Nilson or a Boba Fett, now's the time; especially with the "rewards for justice" the U.S. govt. has going.


New Post

I wasn't feeling imaginitive when I thought of the title, but just updating the blog to keep it current. Halo Wars is cool, but I got jipped and didn't get the flaming warthog for pre-ordering the game. Watchmen was cool, but gay. Read my review on the KGC. Anyway, I just finished watching the tv show "Jericho". It is the best show I've ever seen, and I watch Lost, 24, and Prison Break. Jericho was cancelled after season 1, but fans sent 20,000 bags of nuts (you have to see the show to understand) to protest it, and a second season was filmed, but was cut off after 7 episodes, because it suggested that the government might not have our best interests in mind, and actually might be controlled by corporations. Anyway, this was a great show, and I'm glad it didn't go further actually because it had a great ending. Unlike Lost, which just goes on and on, I don't care if it's only 2 or 3 seasons, just tell me the answers! Don't keep adding mysteries and confusing us further (teleporting islands?!??!1). I think the writers just want to kill as many characters as possible, and when they can't think of a remotely reasonable explanation for bringing in a new character, they just bring the old ones back to life. I still watch that show, though. Anyway, I reccomend Jericho, and the second season is even better, but you have to watch the first one to get what's going on.

Krakenkiller out. Beware the mist.


Almost there...

Two days until Halo Wars. Five days until Watchmen. 90 days until school is over. I can't take it!!! Anyway, I entered a contest for winning a Mythic Map pack code, and I lost. :( . By the way, if anyone is considering buying a iPod touch, I highly recommend it. I love mine. Just make sure that you get a iPod touch case for it, not a iPhone case, they are different. Some recommended apps are stanza (free), usa today (free), discover (free), VLCRemFree (free), and tv.com (free). Also, make sure to check out my new website with forums and blog, here: krakenkiller gaming community .

Over and out.


In Tesla's Footsteps

Wireless power has now become a reality. Recharging your batteries and powering lights without any cords. Tesla started this work, but lost funding before he could complete it. Now this man has done it, click on the post title to read the article.


Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

Here is the new trailer:

I have a couple new posts today, so be sure to scroll down. New mythic map pack screen.


Bungie has released a screenshot of the new "outdoor foundry" map, sandbox. It looks pretty sweet.

Super Fail

After the 43rd superbowl, I have coined a new term: Super Fail. The Cardinals were so close, but they failed and let the Steelers make a 100 yard run. It was a close game, but oh well. So, what is a pirate's favorite restaurant?

Super Bowl XLIII halftime show

This is the TZ halftime show. Old rockstars sold separately. The Cardinals had a chance to catch up, and failed miserably. They were 2nd and goal, and Pittsburgh intercepted it, ran it all the way to the end zone. EPIC FAIL! One of the biggest epic fails ever. I am still rooting for the Cardinals, like I was, but I don't think they can make it. Krakenkiller out.

None dare call it hypocrisy...

Oh No! Don't say it's so. It is. I have succumbed to "Obamania" which I ranted about in the last post. 
If nothing else, Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States of America, is a gamer. That's right, he owns a Wii, and apparently even plays it. Now, if he can beat me in a match on Super Smash Bros., he might even get my vote in '12.

p.s. It's post number 100. Yay.

p.p.s. Go Cardinals.



Obama is everywhere. When I go to a bookstore, there is a whole table of Obama books, in the magazine section, there are magazines about Obama, even gardening magazines. I don't care how he keeps his garden or what kind of dog he has. For goodness' sake he's even the first thing I saw when I turned on my xbox 360. AGH! Oh, he also spent a high estimate of $150 million on his inaugural ball. Way to be responsible. He's of to a great start!... Oh, wait, the economy needs tending to... he'll just deal with it after explaining these astronomical costs.

As if I'm not official.
