Gears Of War 3 Beta

Well i was lucky enough to snag a redeem code for the Gears of War 3 beta from Bulletstorm. After purchasing both bloody copies of the game, i spent the whole week in the middle of the action, checking the four new maps, three new game modes, and tons of new and re-tooled weapons. My load-out is currently SawN Off Shotty and Hammerburst. I’m still in the motions of getting to grips with the retro Lancer, im sure ill get there in the end LOL!

In the beta Epic is showing off four maps: Thrashball, Checkout, Old Town, and Trenches. My personal favourite has to be Checkout. Checkout takes place in a department store, perfect for fans of close combat and duck-and-cover tactics. Perfect map to practise with the SawN off and Gnasher!

I feel Epic have brought back the fun to Gears. It has a revamped Gears 1 feel. I wasnt a massive fan of Gears of war 2 multiplayer and to be fair i was rubbish at it. I loved Gears 1 and i love the Beta. Promising stuff really can’t wait for the final product………

I will post a video shortly of me and my friend Bittermace Playing online. When the lazy bast uploads them…… Peace!

Thor The Movie 2011

An Epic adventure that delivers pretty much everything you could want from a Marvel movie, thanks to a superb script, note-perfect direction from Kenneth Branagh, a terrific supporting cast and a charismatic, star-making central performance from Chris Hemsworth. For me this is the best Marvel film to date. Equal mix of comedy, love and action. 

So whats it all about your asking?? Thor is based on the Marvel Comics superhero and stars Chris Hemsworth as Norse god Thor, who’s about to be crowned king of the realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins). However, Thor’s jealous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) manipulates him into starting a war with a race of Frost Giants, which results in Odin stripping Thor of his powers and banishing him to Earth.

Worth seeing?
In short, Thor is a huge amount of fun and is easily the best superhero Movie to date!!!!

Naruto Shippuden Movie 4: The Lost Tower

Assigned on a mission to capture Mukade, a missing-nin, Naruto Uzumaki sets out for the once glorious historic ruins of “Ouran”, where he pursues and corners the rogue ninja. Mukade’s goal is revealed to be a dormant leyline within the ruins; he unleashes the power of the leyline, causing a light to envelop Naruto, sending him into the past!

Unfortunately there is only a raw copy of the film out at the moment. As soon as the English Sub becomes available i will post details on here. If you would like to watch the raw sub get it here!

Hipstamatic Retro Era

Hipstamatic is part of a “retro” trend in photography, which has seen a rise in the popularity of cheap and technically obsolete analog cameras (such as Lomography and Polaroid instant cameras), as well as software filters and smartphone software that emulate such cameras. Other “vintage” photography applications include CameraBag and Instagram. Like Hipstamatic, they often include social networking features to facilitate the exchange of photos via the internet. Hipstamatic uses the iPhone’s camera to allow the user to shoot square photographs, to which it applies a number of software filters in order to make the images look as though they were taken with an antique film camera. The user can choose among a number of effects which are presented in the application as “lenses”, “films” and “flashes”. Several of these are included with the application, while others need to be purchased separately.

For me, this app is genius! Pictures have never been so easy to transform. I’m a big fan of adobe but for me this app has all a beginner could ever need 🙂
