Hitman: Absolution

The return of Agent 47. The Hitman series of games is a unique genre unto itself. A mix between stealth, third-person action, puzzles, and mini-sandbox game. Unlike other third person games it focuses on strategy and patience but doesn't restrict you to either. If you lack patience then going in ...

Warrior and MMA

The DVD for Warrior just came out today and I must admit I have been waiting to see this movie for a while. Skeptical (as usual) but excited. After all it's a movie with MMA as the background. All the great movies about a person excelling in their profession are ...

LOL. I can't say that name with a straight face. Don't know why i remembered this but i am glad i did. A lot of people think that MMORPGs require no strategy. This is not true, specially in higher level instances. For those who are uninitiated Leeroy Jenkins became famous ...

Hitman: Absolution



The return of Agent 47. The Hitman series of games is a unique genre unto itself. A mix between stealth, third-person action, puzzles, and mini-sandbox game. Unlike other third person games it focuses on strategy and patience but doesn't restrict you to either. If you lack patience then going in guns-blazing can work... sometimes.  47, the "protagonist" with a bar code tattoo on the back of his head, is not as resilient as other game heroes. The best approach to any mission requires planning just like real professional assassinations. You gather intelligence by walking around and surveying guards, routes, hiding spots, and possible disguises. This is where strategy comes in. The game hints at possible assassination scenarios but the sandbox aspect of the levels allows for creativity. Did the game hint at disguising yourself as the target's doctor then changing medications to something more lethal? Maybe you can find something more creative like sabotaging an oxygen tank on the route the target usually takes for an explosive surprise. Looking forward to Hitman Absolution coming 4Q 2012. After all who didn't want to be a hitman when they grew up? ...just me? :)

Help save the internet

(VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED)





I have to admit I was one of those that did not know about this bill. Mozilla,AOL, eBay, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yahoo!, and Zynga are all opposing the bill but EA, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and Apple support it. The intentions of the Bill seem noble but some of the specifics are down right scary.

Here is some more info:

Article by GameSpot and the Bill itself. Or if you are lazy then...

True Grit: UFC 139



Last night Mauricio SHOGUN Rua displayed true grit. His fight with Dan Henderson was epic and will be etched forever in the annals of MMA. It was not a fight highlighted by beautiful striking, flawless BJJ, or picture-perfect wrestling. It was messy, long, and bloody. Punctuated by will and determination.  A display of why we love heart. A Rocky Balboa story. (spoilers ahead!) (more…)

Fist Wars: The Amanda Lucas Story


I found this great story about Amanda Lucas on sherdog today. Check it out HERE.

Here is the video of the fight from the story, watch the ending its hilarious!

On a serious note, I am impressed that the daughter of a billionaire chose this career path. It shows she does it for the love of the sport, and what better way to live life than do what you love.
