Skylanders Cloud Patrol

Skylanders Cloud Patrol

This is not board game, but it’s enough fun that I have to post it.

Skylanders is a great game that works cross platform with the Wii, Xbox360, PS3, Web Site, 3DS and IPad. The main game plays on the Wii, Xbox360 and PS3. The game itself is your basic 3 person shooter. What makes the game unique, is you are given with the game mini game characters to play in the game. These characters can level up and that information is stored on the mini, allowing you to transport your character to other people’s houses with its info intact. You can also buy new characters (which for awhile have been selling like hot cakes). These characters can also be used for the other Platforms. I’m going to focus on the IPad game, but here is the into for the main game.

In the IDevice game, it’s a straight shooter game with plenty of power ups and characters that you can unlock and upgrade. For those characters you brought for the other games, you can unlock those for free. Here is a video for it.

As you can see, it looks great and kid friendly. Lots of great sounds to go with it and I don’t know another IDevice game like it.

Cost of the game $.99. It’s a steal. The last video really shows everything about it, so I’ll stop here. It’s a lot of fun and if you are looking to shoot something this will easily scratch that itch.


Monckton PWNED! Flawless Victory! Part 2

Well this blog has been stepping more toward the Athiest and Politics side of the world lately and I want to change that. These issues are dear to me, but I want to try to toss in some gaming topics as well.

I plan to focus a bit on Boardgames on the IPad\IPhone. Which ones do I play and what I think of them, etc.

While I’m working on that, here is a Potholer follow up to another post to the Monckton debate.

Follow this link and just watch. I’ll be thinking about what rocks dream of..

Sye, Eric and a Magic Sandwich Part 2

So Thunderf00t and c0nc0rdance have stepped up with a few videos about their interview. c0nc0rdance takes the high road and takes Sye’s and Eric’s message apart:

It’s a good video, but really this video gives Sye more time then he deserves. Thunderf00t directly calls BS.

I agree with Thunderf00t that this position of Sye and Eric is directly because that if you look at the question of God from a fact and evidence point of view, there is nothing for the God agruement to stand on. All they have left to do is to appeal to your emotions that they are right, but please don’t look behind the curtain. Because if you do, then just like the Wizard of Oz, you find out very quickly that your God is false.

Sye, Eric and a Magic Sandwich

So Atheist has IMO smacked down any real discussion that God exists based on the Bible, etc. So now we have been seeing arguments like this one on the Magic Sandwich Show. The argument goes something like this:

  • Assume God Exists
  • You can know nothing without God
  • Therefore I’m right and God exists and anything you say is wrong since you don’t ‘know’ God

Now if this seems childish, you’re right. It’s easy to prove God Exist if you assume to start with that God exist and it’s easy to shoot down anything others say since without God you know nothing.

Of course it’s easy to show that via the Scientific Method, etc. we do have knowledge of how this reality works. All this babbling double talk is just that: Babbling Double Talk.

C0nc0rdance at the end really knocks it out of the park after Thunderf00t sets him up.

Here is Part 1. You can follow the video if you want to watch the rest. I’m trying to get through it, but it’s just too much dishonestly on the part of Sye and Eric. Really, Eric Hovind seems to be a wall flower so far. I think he’s hoping that Sye can carry this battle for him, because he doesn’t seem able from the last Thunderf00t video that I posted. Thunderf00t discusses that talk with Eric Hovind on his blog. He’s a better man than I. I would need a few drinks before I engaged in this level of BS.

Return to Sender

So I switched parties from the GOP to Democrat. However, someone didn’t tell the GOP that I switched so I got sent the Official Presidential Platform Survey for 2012. For fun, I’ll post the questions here and let you fill in your own answers. Enjoy:
