Busy Week

Lots happened last week. Time for a breakdown:

1. Toonami died

Yes, I'm sad. Let me just throw that out there so you don't think I'm completely insensitive. On that note, I'm glad its gone. It was around too long if you ask me. There was absolutely no point in changing up the look of Toonami within its last year. What they should have done was left it how it was until its 10th anniversary then said goodbye. And they would have gone out with a bang. Not "Oh, by the way, it's our last broadcast. Bye." NO! That's really crappy. Freakin' Thomas the Tank Engine. That's what TOM had become. It's sad. Too man bad memories for me. That's why I think it should have gone out when everyone had good memories still in their head. Toonami, you will be sorely missed anyway. You were a big part of our generation's childhood and cartoons will never be the same. If it weren't for Toonami, stuff like Adult Swim would never have existed. Here's to you Toonami. You succeeded in creating a better cartoon show. And kids did love it. Bang.

2. New Halo "Game"

Yes, a new Halo... uh... something was announced on Halo 3's first anniversery. I still think its an alternate campaign on Earth with marines. Anyway, if you want a reeealy in-depth breakdown of the trailer- actually there's many sources. I suggest this one or this one. There's a lot to be picked through. Everything Bungie does, they do for a reson.

3. Old Halo Game

The less publicized story was the cancelled Halo game. Apparently, Ensamble was working on a Halo MMO, but it was scrapped in 2007, long before the company was disbanded by Microsoft. They must have known it was total crap. Seriously, I don't know what these guys were thinking. Ensamble makes RTS games not MMOS. A Halo MMO is just a bad idea to begin with because you would have to add so man un-Halo elements into the mix. Witness some of the concept art and judge for your self. Personally, I think the world is now better off.
4. Google Phone

If you've been living under a rock on Saturn, you probably haven't heard about the Google-powered phone. Well, it's coming. The new T-Mobile device runs of Google's new Android opperating system. I rather like it. In fact, I would go as far as saying it looks more promising than the iPhone. The device has both a touch screen and QWERTY keyboard (a plus in my book) as well as a track ball and some actual keys. The G1 has full support of Google services and is expected to launch this fall. Visit the official site for info.

And that's last week's news wrap up. Now I will leave you with some good memories of Toonami brought to you by Tom the Tank Engine.

How can anyone live like this

Seriously how anyone can live like amazing

Prepare To Drop...

I missed it last night. The countdown that was so rudely interrupted during E3 reappeared last night over at It ended earlier today (at 7:07). Wow. This is indeed significant. This is new Halo stuff, folks. The first official Halo game since Halo 3. It's not Halo Wars, it's not the mysterious Peter Jackson game, this is something new entirely. It's one of three Bungie projects in the works, and one of several Halo projects.

There is a trailer. I'm not going to embed the Youtube version here, because its crap. If you don't watch it in high quality, you're really missing out. Instead download it here. Speculation is running rampet. There are now more questions than answers. All we know at this point is what the damn Superintendant is (a simple AI programed to operate public utilities). I'll be back tomorrow for some in-depth analysis. Until then, I'll just throw in my two cents: I think it's the rumored ODST game. Whether it's squad-based or not remains to be seen. I think it'll probably be an alternate campaign of Halo2/Halo3 focusing on the Marine's battle on earth. We'll have to just wait and see how things unfold before any more assumptions can be made.

Oh, and Halo 3 turned one today. That's probably why this announcement was even made.

Ninja Cat

Ninja cat is today's random video I just found. Enjoy.

I guess it's not much of an Ensemble any more...

In an odd turn of events, Microsoft has disbanded Ensemble Studios, the creators of Age of Empires and the upcoming Halo Wars. Halo Wars will be the studio's last game, after which the company will cease to exist. Microsoft has given employees other jobs at Microsoft.

One must wonder why, though? What will befall the Halo Wars series if it is successful? Guess we'll have to wait until it's released to find out.

Featured Game

I'm trying out something different today. I've added a section to the sidebar called "Featured Game". You can check here to find an upcoming release that you might not have heard of. Clicking on the picture will take you to the website where you can find more information. I think this is a great way to discover new games. Enjoy.

Please help stop the Dragonball movie

I would go on a rant but I'm not much in the mood right now. I'm too upset at this. As you may or may not know, the live action Dragonball movie is scheduled for April of next year. It's so very wrong. If you're any kind of fan of the show, then just by looking at these few stills from the upcoming trailer you can tell just how wrong it is.

Please, if you don't want the good name of Dragonball to be defiled by this blasphemy, then sign this petition to help stop it!
