Is the Android Silver program already dead?

It seems as though Android’s bid to add more consistency to their mobile strategy could already be dead. Android Silver was a program initially announced as a way to bring the stock Android experience to more users through the actual wireless carriers. The OS would have been completely managed by Google, including updates, while the rest of the industry would be responsible for providing premium hardware. A specific set of guidelines would be set in place to be followed in order to qualify for the program, while companies would be provided with R&D support and monetary compensation. Sounds like a Googlefan’s wet dream doesn’t it? Continue reading Is the Android Silver program already dead?

Mad Max makes a return in Fury Road sequel

Earlier today at Comic-Con, the latest chapter in the Mad Max series of movies was revealed. The movie is being called Mad Max: Fury Road, and will be directed by series creator George Miller. Also, as no surprise to me, it will be starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, with Tom Hardy taking over the leading role of Mad Max. Mel Gibson will be busy trying not to be nuts.

Marvel announces a new female Thor

There’s a new Thor in town, and even if you’ve got a guess as to who it might be, it’s still not probably what you’re expecting. And the announcement was made on The View of all places. The important thing to wonder about is what exactly happened? Apparently Thor did something to piss Mjolnir off, enough for the hammer to deem him no longer worthy and run off to find a new owner. Series writer Jason Aaron claims it’s just that. Don’t expect any twists or loop holes. Continue reading Marvel announces a new female Thor

Let’s talk Super Sentai

I didn’t know what to post today. I still have to do a lot of work on my Chemist for FFXIV post, so no dice there. As far as procrastinating goes, EVO is wasting my time with MvC3, and I’m trying to resist resubbing my Netflix account, so I more or less have nothing to do. So let’s talk Super Sentai. What’s that? You don’t know what Super Sentai is? Ever heard of Power Rangers? Screw you. Let’s get down to basics about it shall we? Continue reading Let’s talk Super Sentai

Space and future and stuff

The last Civilization V game I played was about a week ago. For those that don’t know, Civilization V (Civ 5) is a strategy game where you build up cities and armies and basically try to be the best country among a small group of similarly competing countries. Sounds boring to you? Who cares, it’s the greatest game ever.

My last Civ 5 game was against the AI, Deity difficulty, huge map size. After watching Marbozir do it for so long, I thought, why not? It was my first time playing deity and I kind of screwed myself over by going for the huge map setting. That’s because, if you’re playing against the computer on deity level, they have the resources to churn out cities and sprawl across the map like a swarm of locusts.

Marvel announces Death of Wolverine, but for Storm, it was just a Tuesday

So, a while back I suddenly got the itch to start reading American comics again. Easier said than done. The difference between American comics and Japanese manga (of which I literally flood my brain with every waking hour) is that Japanese manga is insanely easy for me to get. I won’t go into the details, but there’s lots of shit to read and it’s easy to get to.

Still, I never stopped wishing I could just get caught up with all the Xmans and BatFreaks. I really used to be into this shit when I was in high school. Why’s it so tough to get into it again? Especially since I’m actively trying my best not to spoil myself so I can somehow get enough of the old books to refresh my knowledge and then catch up to how things are today. The effort I’m going through is like punching myself in the head and thanking myself for it. Continue reading Marvel announces Death of Wolverine, but for Storm, it was just a Tuesday

Old Man Noses

Ninja turtles used to be cool. They still are. Deep somewhere inside my heart. But I honestly don’t think they’ve been “cool” for a long time. Why am I discussing the cool factor of ninja turtles? Because I found a pretty awesome video that’s why. Since I’m more or less very much into martial arts, action-related things, any type of new video with a nice fight scene catches my eye. Imagine my joy when the guys at Thousand Pounds finally released something new today. And yeah it’s ninja-turtle-related. Kinda. Actually, it’s a “fun, stylistic (… and human) take on what a sparring session could look like between the four green ninjas that started it all.” Okay okay, I’ll stop being a tease. Check out the video below. Continue reading Old Man Noses
