Diablo III

Well, Blizzard announced Diablo 3 over the weekend. It’s basically the same gameplay, except they’re improving and expanding on everything like graphics, items, etc. You can’t go wrong with that. Blizzard is smart and they know their big franchises have huge installed bases and there’s no reason to fix something that isn’t broken. Don’t rock the boat, just polish everything and make it better. Same deal as StarCraft 2.

Vantage Point

I recently watched Vantage Point and it was a really a mixed bag. I guess it was an okay movie. It was interesting to see each person’s individual point of view but there are so many plot holes or plot devices that were just really weak.

You really have to watch the movie to understand this review. I just can’t review this movie without tearing apart the plot. Everything else like the acting and the action sequences were decent and pretty good actually.

Yahoo is Screwed

So Yahoo officially announced that its talks with Microsoft have concluded they have once again failed to reach any kind of deal. There are reports that Yahoo may soon announce a search deal with Google. They’ll basically be outsourcing search to Google. Throwing away a core competency key to its long-term success for short-term gain. In my eyes I feel like Yahoo really botched this whole thing.

35 Articles of Impeachment of President George W. Bush

http://kucinich.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=93581

Bill Clinton got impeached for lying about the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal. Bush lied to the whole country and the world to justify launching a costly, poorly planned, preemptive, and ILLEGAL war. The US invaded a sovereign nation that posed no threat, in violation of domestic and international law and the UN charter. Regardless of everything else this war criminal has done, why hasn’t he been impeached yet? It’s shameful that neither Democratic leadership nor mainstream media are willing to pay more attention to this. This isn’t about politics, it’s a matter of duty to this country – Bush AND Cheney need to be held accountable for their crimes.

NBC’s Coverage of 2008 French Open Men’s Semifinal Was Awful

NBC, you suck. Your coverage of this year’s French Open Men’s Semifinal matches was AWFUL. You grab the rights to broadcast but you do an absolutely horrible job, making it thoroughly un-enjoyable. Instead of airing at 7 AM to cover Nadal v. Djokovic live, NBC obviously aired their stupid morning show. They started airing the French Open at 10 AM and decide to air the tape of an already completed match (Nadal v. Djokovic). Not only that, over 3 hours they couldn’t even air the complete match because literally half of the 3 hour period was filled with commercials. Maybe more! Seriously, I’d walk away when a commercial came on, come back, watch tennis for 30 seconds, and another commercial break would start.

They skipped almost the entire second set. Commercials aired every few minutes. It was so unbearably annoying. I understand TV networks need to make money but it was just so obvious NBC cared nothing about covering the French Open but instead just wanted to fill a weak spot in their schedule to sell ad slots.

Kobe Bryant Better Than Michael Jordan? HELL NO!

I just saw this article on the NBC Sports website:
Better than MJ? Kobe enters the debate

I’m sorry, Kobe is a great player and I think he’s the best all-around player in the league today but he does not replace Michael Jordan as the greatest player ever. Anyone familiar with Jordan’s various accomplishments and statistics knows that Kobe does not stack up.
