Doctor Who 50th Anniversary After Show Podcast

Ok people tell me that wasn’t something absolutely brilliant! Took me by surprise, and then and THEN a few twisty curves around he bends as well. So it does seem however that this may also mean that , Peter Capaldi will be the 13th Doctor rather than the 12th that everyone was under the impression of with the revelation that John hurt was actually supposed to be the 9th Doctor, the “Warrior” Doctor. Billie Piper being involved as the weapon’s conscience was a bit of surprise as well, I know I was taken back a bit when she showed up as a Telepathic projection to the 9th Doctor. Zygons?  Really? I hadn’t heard that name since 2010 in Sarah Jane’s Adventures one of Russell T Davies works.

But yea, we’re also discussing Battlefield 4 and the fact that EA couldn’t stand to see Call of Duty get the 1st Spot as far as release date was concerned and it bit them in the ass for it as well. Bruce will be discussing the OH so awesomeness of doing some of the work that EA’s Dev team for BF4 should have been doing as far as the graphics and net code or lack of net code I should say. When you shoot someone in game you shouldn’t walk around the corner when you think the person is dead and then opps! You drop dead instead because the other person saw you ran around popped one off in your head 2 minutes ago.  Yea, that’s really fair EA, you guys are going to hit SO big with BF4 and all. (I am rolling my eyes while saying that.)

A Legend among The Video WarGods has passed beyond the pale curtain.

Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi, a man who transformed his great-grandfather’s playing-card company, Nintendo, and marched it into one of the global video game powerhouses has died on Today in Kyoto, Japan. He was 85. This was due to complications caused by a case of pneumonia.

Mr. Yamauchi, who took Nintendo and from 1949 to 2002, was Japan’s most reluctant high-tech success story, Assuming the position of president of the family business at an age of 22, he warp sped Nintendo through board games to light-emitting toy guns ventures that lacked that special something that he later attributed to a “lack of imagination” but then the age of arcade games came about.

The Nintendo Entertainment System aka The NES was a console that was first released in Japan in 1983 entitled the “Famicom,” which made the leaders in the video game industry on their heads standing on their hair, sold over 60 million units all to shrewd advertising and marketing as well product quality and a game lineup on a set of characters that soon became video game legends.

The Original Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong became overnight successes which also gave rise to Nintendo’s wildly successful home console business.
The Man who brought you the plumber that rescues the princess, the dog that helps you in duck hunting the robot that helped out with your eye and hand coordination, Mr. Yamauchi, who professed not to understand video games, went on and dominated the business. When the super famicom was released seven years later, people took up camp outside of The Warehouse, Tower Records, Sears, Woolworth and other stores that had an electronics department for days waiting; and when it hit?

The NES/Famicom sold just about 50 million units. Stage 2 was the Nintendo 64 then Nintendo Game Cube, as well then the handhelds Game Boy and Game Boy Advance, the DS and 3DS. Mr. Yamauchi is someone we looked up to being that Generation X and Generation Y who grew up with the Wii and DS next gen consoles now to our own grandkids for some of us who will be Generation Z. The Man that got us hooked on Mario and His brother Lugi, a lovable Ape and his ability to bowl barrels down ramps, a small elf like guy named Link looking for his Maiden Fair Zelda, yes we will remember these names and characters but let’s not forget that person who managed to start that barrel of success rolling and still hasn’t stopped yet. Our wishes and Condolences to his wife Michiko Inaba and their three children.  A funeral is scheduled for Sunday at Nintendo, following a wake on Saturday.

RIP
Hiroshi Yamauchi

Red5 Studios “Firefall” Beta Testing Enrollment

Firefall

Hello everyone, another Friday is here and a weekend begins. This weekend I and most of the crew will be playing Firefall by Red5 Studios, it’s a massively multiplayer online team-based computer game from Red5 Studios, a studio founded by Mark Kern.

Firefall is a disaster that takes place roughly two centuries in the future so about 2200 AD. An asteroid was predicted to fly by in proximity to Earth and be a near miss. The Asteroid entered the gravity well of the Moon instead and shattered into a meteor shower. Many of these shards began to slam into the Earth while the bulk of what was left of the asteroid entered a low fast decaying orbit around the Earth, splintering off even more shards and debris that continued to break free of the asteroid. The asteroid what was left of it, crashed into Earth, and with this, plummeted mankind into a dark technological age known as the 9 Year Winter. The larger governments splintered during the turmoil, other nations bound together, and formed a unified alliance to stand against the rising sea of troubles and civil unrest.

Scientists in Japan came across a new element called crystite. They discovered a new element but this was just the seed crystite. After further study and scouring the primary crash zone where they able to gather up more of this new element, only a gram or two was actually recovered by the sifting of earth and sand. A number of studies and research on crystite shows that it pivots the known laws of physics on its head, and thus crystite quickly became a massive and new source of power with almost unlimited potential. It did become a primary power source for the world and a new dawn rose on the horizon. But as with everything this world and its natives behavior, Crystite is still a foreign element that came from the asteroid that impacted into Earth, it is a resource potentially w/o limits? As usual humankind would want more as greed usually comes into play on such a type a commodity such as this.

Now, we were able to figure out where the Crystite came from after plotting the asteroid’s flight path. Seems that its origin was that of Alpha Centauri. We then started a space mining program that took 4 years to establish and setup between the 2 star systems. The settlement was dubbed Alpha Prime while 7 more transports were commissioned for exporting and importing of Crystite.

Regardless of Crystite being a new source of energy , the global powers started to think and with good cause, that the reliance on the Crystite, if revolution came into play on Alpha Prime, it could in fact topple Earth to its knees. So in taking this into effect, the scientists of earth created a technology called arcfolding (Think star trek warp drive.) where a manmade wormhole is created and an energy shell protects the vessel while its crew is in cryogenic sleep, so in fact what would be a 4 year round trip span dropped to a 4 day round trip span. This is all thanks to the discovery of Crystite.

So with earth finally settling its internal conflicts and issues and collaborating together for the greater good, 2 Crystite Reactors built into her the Arclight was born. This was to be a sign of strength over Alpha Prime on who really was the alpha being in this situation and let Alpha Prime know that earth is not a planet to trifle with. But on its maiden voyage something horrible happened, so horrible it can only be compared with the time of the great impact occurred.
The Arclight fired up its Reactors for its 1st Arcfold in orbit at a Lagrange point as it was the one of the safest ways from a stability point of view. A mistake in calculations was made and as it opened the Portal Access of the wormhole, it in fact tore a rip in space/time and an Energy storm that was entitled “The Melding” and poured into our solar system and rifted across the blue ball we called home what we called earth, leaving small areas of the planet still habitable for humankind.

“The Melding” terraforms the areas it infects with its radiation and seems that humankind on earth has an issue with most of its populace being mutated into a race dubbed “The Chosen”. Our roles in this is one of the surviving pockets of humans left on the planet most of us belonging to the accord. Our Job currently, retake the planet clear out resistance and dissipates The Melding from planeside.

Current status for all Accord Agent on Fortaleza, guard the surrounding area and keep it secured. It is imperative to keep the STIZ Bubble active. Not registered yet? Oh Hanna on a Hand Grenade! Here register here and start your process Agent! Oh, and if you need a hand, once you’re processed in? Look for MadrameHarunobu that me; I’ll be glad to help out and show you around Fortaleza.

Patlabor Sentai/Live Action Movie rumor going around

Mamoru Oshii creator of  a number of well known anime series and movies had suggested that possible plans of a Sentai Patlabor Film went by a online conversation. Although he has denied the possibilities of a “Patlabor live-action Movie” in production, he did state that I’ve suddenly became busy over the past three years but I was free, to maybe do a Patlabor live-action Movie in a gradual transition though. Speculation of a Patlabor  live-action Movie might be ready still a rumor and only a rumor but what if it was true?

When the premiere be announced?

What would the Roadshow tour/screening dates be?

Just plain and simply “When”

That’s it from me

EZ-Builder & DJ Sures takes the robotics show on the road ! Calgary Expo “2012”

EZ-Builder & DJ Sures was invited to the Calgary Comic Expo 2012 to bring in the collective robotic projects that were finished and operational. A live demonstration By DJ Sures was performed on a Hasbro R2D2 and gave new meaning to the word jump to it. All thanks to the EZ-Robot Complete Kit, and there were on stage demos throughout the whole weekend. The EZ-Builder staff was on hand to demonstrate the power of the EZ-Builder Robot Control Software with DJ Sures’s user  friendly Wall-e robot and Omnibot 2K through the impressive 42″ touch panel display that was used by the general patrons as well. All in all a fun time was had by Robotic enthusiasts and their families as well as corporate representatives as well I’m betting too.

Let’s get a look at what it was like that weekend shall we?
