Science fiction

Science fiction is one of those grand things that tell us a lot about ourselves in the guise of the odd and very strange. Whether it be aliens, magic, or future technology. It is quite amazing how a story about lets say zombies shows the many different sides of how humans would react to a terrible situation. Showing some to be driven crazy while others turn out to be leaders and survivors. In another case authors of alien science fiction portray certain aspects of human nature, either good or bad, onto those creatures and have us embracing or fighting those aspects. Just my thoughts let me know what you think.

The oversaturation of political correctness

I find thinking quite often about the term of political correctness. I find in some cases it is quite warranted like in the work place or out in public. And in other instances it is completely and utterly ruining things like the way some universities cave to pressures of a vocal minority. That minority influences us more and more each day it seems and pretty soon it will be a criminal offense just for eating meat in front of a vegan/vegetarian. Groups on the other side of the spectrum also ruin the way PC works such as religious groups who always have to have their say in something because God forbid we mock some religious ideal or symbol. What are your thoughts on this? I would like to get another perspective on this.

I have to say i am utterly excited for the new tron movie. Every trailer i see on it seems to scream "AHHHHHHHHHHH GO SEE ME!!!!" maybe even more exclamation points. But with the combined efforts of a good cast and the amazingness that is Daft Punk i cannot see where this movie will go wrong with me

Week of August 23, 2010

CD of the week: 30 Seconds to Mars "This is War"

Thus the panic of finals begins. I have my final few classes of the quarter this week and next week, which will gratefully lead into a flight home for the week and then an escapade on the beach for a few days.

pull list for Aug 18

Very small pull list this week not much interested me except these 3 books

Batman Beyond 3 of 6
Continuing the story of Hush in the Batman beyond universe in his attempts to kill Batman villians new and old. If you are a fan of Batman i suggest picking this one up

Green Lantern Corps #51
Continuing the attack of the alpha lanterns storyline. I don't find this story line as appealing as older ones, but i find the characterization of ganthet to make it an auto pickup for GL fans

Brighest Day #8
After the reveal of what everything means with the return of the heroes and villains during blackest night last issue this issue slows it down, much to my dislike. There are a couple more reveals in the issue but it seems slow and kind of dull. Pass it.

Well thats my list for the week hopefully it helped you a little on those 3 comics

Stay Frosty,

Boderlands review

This is a fun filled romp across a very imaginative and well fleshed out world that's sort of a mix between Mad Max and Diablo. It has a system of loot drops like Diablo but has a first person real time fighting system that has you trekking on foot and riding around in a dune buggy killing the many residents of Pandora as they try to kill you. The best part of this game has got to be the voice acting and the basic characterizations on the planet, they are some of the most imaginative takes on npc's(none player characters) that i have pretty much ever seen. Have it be the redneck owner of the buggy portals who wants you to "catch'a ride with da scotter man" or the ever increasing insanity of a certain explorer as told through her scattered recordings. The game itself is quite engrossing and i say its best played with 2-3 other buddies. Having played it both ways, single and with 2 other friends, i have to say hearing the constant chatter between us as we run, fight, die, and talk loot it turns this fun experience into something memorable.
The game isn't without flaws, the story sort of tapers off a bit in the end. Not enough to stop you from playing but enough for you to go Eh. And playing it multiplayer with unlucky people can sometimes leave you with a whole lot of one sided drops for 1 particular character in your party. Overall though I extremely enjoyed this game and would recommend it fully to anyone who asks.


Until next time
Stay Frosty,
*edit* Steam has the game on sale this weekend 66% off for the game itself and its dlc (downloadable content) packs. $10.19 for the game, $3.69 for each of the 3 dlc's, and $30.58 for a 4 pack of the game to share with 3 other friends

The End (of summer)

It's about that time of year folks, the leaves are about to fall off the trees and the kiddies are going back to school. Must say that it has been a pretty decent overall summer, with many twists, turns and a what a twist ending circa M. Night Shamalamadingdong. Thanks to those that made it great, and a big ol' DIF to those that made it bad. I just want you all to know that you touched me deeply, and now im calling the police.

Stay Frosty,
