          I've added a new share feature to the blog so you can now share this blog's posts with a whopping 56 other social network (55 since I shouldn't count blogger, 52 since I shouldn't count the ones that were already here)! Just click on the specific post and you'll see the new share feature under the old one at the bottom of the post. All you have to do is hover over it and left click on one of the 56. Thanks goes to the guys over at Spice Up Your Blog. So, like the motto of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Complaints division says "Share and Enjoy!"

Resident Evil 6 Announced...Last Week

          Okay, school's been really tough this new semester and I've been working like crazy to keep up with the demand and that will most likely continue throughout the semester. This blog might go through some dry spells again. What can I do? I need to get my degree.
          Anyways, last weeks (or earlier this week--it's all starting to blend in) Capcom announcing Resident Evil 6, but to with some little press release, but one of the most exciting and awe-inspiring trailers I've seen in long while. I'll keep this short as most of the gaming site on the Internet have cover this in extensive detail. It looks awesome! Like revitalizing the franchise (cough, cough, like RE4, cough) awesome. The game will one of my personal favorites RE protagonist Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and mystery third guy. It aims to blend classic RE horror with the action-pack-ness of RE5. I'm thinking Leon section will play like RE4 (a good blend of horror and action) and Chris' part will like RE5 (action-packed block buster movie). It looks really good. Also, normal zombies are finally back!
          Trailer and pics below and after jump.

Photo Ops: From Some Time In 2011...

          This is a test to see if this, Flickr slideshow in Blogger, work as I'm running low on space on both Flickr and Picasa (Google a.k.a. Blogger's photo hosting service). As the title suggest these pictures are from the far off and mystical time of 2011...

P.S.: My newer photos will have to wait until I solve this space issue.
Photobucket is not a good solution.

Best Quote of the Week ~ [1/22/12]: Censorship Edition

          ‎"How anybody expects a man to stay in business with every two-bit wowser in the country claiming a veto over what we can say and can't say and what we can show and what we can't show — it's enough to make you throw up. The whole principle is wrong; it's like demanding that grown men live on skim milk because the baby can't eat steak."
~Robert A. Heinlein from his 1950's novella The Man Who Sold the Moon

There is nothing I can say that would be sufficient enough to describe my awe nor joke funnier than the one going through your mind right now from just the mere sight of it.
