Better than an iphone!

June 29, 2007

The second trailer of GTA IV with this time real game play footages has been released yesterday. And it looks amazing. You can see a motorbike, a few cars, two helicopters (one is a black hawk), a bunch of guns, and I think at the end the main character (Niko Bellic) is using an iphone. In this episode you will be able to enter in more buildings then in the previous versions, which is a good thing. Also you can see niko firing an assault rifle, and he is carrying a bag which is also one of the new features of the game, being able to see everything you carry. You will also be able to hold on the back of a truck or on the skid of helicopters

The game should come out in October this year! for more information follow the guide!

DMZ

June 15, 2007

dmzontheground

Yesterday, I bought the amazing graphic novel from Brian Wood. I don’t remember where I heard of it, but i think it was on boingboing.net.

I’m big fan of european comics, “bande dessinée”. Unfortunately I don’t know much about their American cousin. All I know it the classic heroes and I’ve seen more movies then read books.

In Vancouver, I bought a few graphic novel and I was pretty surprised. I really enjoyed them, the stories were very nice as well as the drawings. I was a bit disappointed because the one I bought were in black and white, but it didn’t really matter.

Anyway, DMZ the novel I bought yesterday has everything I like in european comics. It’s a piece of art, the story is thrilling, surprising, some nice action seen, some hidden stuff to look for, some sustainable concept and a bit of tech.

The story take place in New York, I’m not sure about the year, but it’s not that fare in the future. Manathan as become a battle zone between the U.S.A and the secessionist “Free state”. A team of journalist is sent on the island to make a reportage, but nothing turn out as expected. Matthew Roth the intern is the only survivor after the team is wiped out by snipers on the drop zone.

Matthew luckily is rescued by Zee a med-school student who will become his guide in the ravaged city. With his high-tech broadcast equipment Matty will do his best to show the world the real face of the conflict…

Check it out, DMZ vol 1: On the ground.

You can find your copy in any good butcher shop. As well as there.

Here is a biography of the author Brian Wood and his website.


Talking about Sushi.

June 13, 2007

MMMmmmmmh sushi dipped in American Army Sauce!

June 13, 2007

Since I was a child, I just always loved sea-food. Fish, mussel, shrimp (my favorit), crab, etc… I love sushi too, mmmmm raw fish.

But as you know, seas are over-fished, soon we won’t be able to say “there’s plenty of fishes in the sea!”. Because the sea is going to be Empty. But lets not be pessimistic, if we are lucky, on spices of fish will become a super-predator, canibale and able to survive by eating it’s fellow fish-friends. Like in the movie Darwin’s Nightmare, here is the trailer.

So we will be able to eat one or two kind of fish. NICE!

Everybody should be aware, that human use the ocean as garbage, a little bit like a kid would push his toys under his bed to make his room look tidy. Unfortunately unlike kids, government and other “wise and mature” authority don’t try to hide toys but hazardous chemicals, nuclear waste, ammunition. Of course, they won’t tell you, they prefer to make you feel guilty not to recycle, guilty not to ride a bus.

I can’t imagine the asshole, that take that kind of decision,

– Sir, we got a lot of nuclear was, 500tons we don’t know what to do with it.

– Pffffff, you now what I have my golf lesson in 20 min with my mistress, just tell the navy to dump it somewhere in the ocean. Like the 400’000 chemical-filed bomb we dumped last week. Just don’t do it at the same place, I think Greenpeace is training there new recruits there. ahahahhaha

– Ok, sir will do it Sir! (running like a little dog).

– Oh, and shhhhh don’t tell anybody.

That for big asshole.

Now a few days later on the Navy McEusston Interceptor. The middle asshole to 20 little rectums:

– Guys today we have a special mission assigne by the Big White house. Our exercise is to drop as many barrel in the seas as quickly as possible. Don’t worry guys it’s just an exercise, if you have to wear gaz mask and your bio-hazard suite it’s just to make it look like real!.

– Houa! (The sound of emptiness in an empty heads).

Little rectum to himself “whahah this fake greeen stuff coming out of the barrel look so real, the Army Fx is doing a great job!”.

And every body is doing his job, without questioning them selfs. That’s what the American army has been doing for a long time.

If you want to see where they dumped those chemicals, like that you can try to avoid those nasty fishing-spots, have a look at the maps:

Around the world:

worlddumpsite

The U.S Atlantic coast:

atlanticdumpsite

Finally the pacific:

pacificdumpsite

They all come from dailypress.com registration is free if you want more information about that story. There is also two other articles on the topic here and there.

It happens since the second world war, maybe even before and it’s still happening, but as usual it takes more then 20 years to become public.

I also read a lot of American hater comment saying “American are stupid” “bla bla bla “. Wake up guys, every single army in the world like that. It’s not because they wear green clothes, they run around in the countryside, that they are ecologically friendly. Friendly may rhyme with army, but it as nothing to do with it.

Being Swiss I heard a lot of story about the swiss army wasting policy, leave the engine of trucks running all night to use all the fuel in order to be able to get the same amount in the future. The waste of bullet and any type of ammunition for the same reason. I’m so glad I could avoid going to that stupid compulsory military service.

So the army: “STOP MESSING WITH MY SHRIMPS, OR I’LL KICK YOUR ASSES!”

I’m a poor gamer :-(

June 6, 2007

nothing

 Yesss I know it has been a long time since my last post. what kind of excuse can I give you..!??!?

Nothing…

Because I’ve been playing games, héhé, but 3 years ago I was still able to buy all the new game I was waiting for, even pre-order them. Now that I’m a poor gamer, I have to play free games, old games, nothing really new and cool. Worst since I’ve installed Ubuntu, I tried Linux games they are…. very, very, vintage! Same feeling as if you travel to the past.

“Dude doom 3 is awesome! By the way did you try penguin race?”

“No, man my ATI card can’t make it run smoothly, that suck!”

“I’m so waiting for ET Quake wars, the developers said we  would be able take part in the beta test!”

“Wicked man!”

Well I know soond really exciting, that what you can read if you type “Linux game” in Google. Well, anyway, those guys are doing a really great job developing  games for Linux without huge budget.

Another amazing thing is that Id software is the only mainstream company that develop all it’s game for Linux too. They are the one who brought us the Quake serie, the Doom serie, Hexen, Heretic, the Wolfenstein serie only great title. Their new title Et quake wars looks really great! As they try to keep the minimum hardware requirement as low as possible, I might have a chance to run that game.

Still I’m really sad because I was able to run good games on win xp, but now it’s quite complicated. with my ATI readeon mobility 9600, I can’t even run Beryl or Compiz. The penguin race story is true, I tried  to play that game but it was laging so bad!!!! That I almost cried.

I head there is another way to run game is to use a soft called Wine, that (don’t) emulate windows so that you can run windows softwares, games etc…

So, what is left for me is my PSP, the Xbox (the first one no misunderstanding) and a MMORPG called Dofu made with Flash.

I remembered a few years ago when I played that game for the first time. I was really impressed because making a game with flash that is Massively multi-player, is a real achievement. The game is really light, It might be a portable software, I guess you don’t need to install anything and you can carry the game around on a memory stick.

For the rich gamers, enjoy your Hi-def games on your Hi-def screens, with your wireless controllers and your broadband connexion. But keep in mind that I’ll be back in the race as soon as I find a job!
