Kingsman The Secret Service So i just saw this movie yesterday, and let me say, that was the most awesome movie I have seen in quite a while. The fighting was over the top, but that made it all the more epic (And funny). It's about a secret spy organization founded by nobles with lots of money, but no heirs to inherent their wealth. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWYLFizhjHs]this[/url] shortened clip was what made me want to see it, and the movie did not disappoint on more fights like this. I went in expecting that scene to be the best part of the movie (so many movies show their best moments in the trailer, and everything else ends up being less exciting), but I was happily proved wrong. TLDR If you like over the top action and comedy
So Dojo is being wrecked in Broa right now So there's a hacker in Broa repeatedly clearing dojo with a time of 0:00 to the point where you can't see people talking. Is this happening in any other servers? Here's a screen of it
So did anyone hear about the cuddle shop yet? Heard about it this morning and couldn't help but laugh quite a bit at the idea. In Portland Oregon a "professional cuddler" opened up a shop where people can pay $60 for an hour of cuddling. She's already gotten over 10k emails from potential customers in just a week. Here's an [url=http://www.inquisitr.com/1621012/professional-cuddler-opens-shop-where-patrons-have-to-pay-to-cuddle-gets-over-10000-customers-in-a-week/]article[/url] on it. I personally think it would be kind of creepy to cuddle up to multiple strangers a day, but she already has 3 employees. So what do you guys think? Weird? Creepy? Cool? Would go for it?
Disney Tomorrowland So uh, I just got an email from Disney (I get several a week from them about new things from them) and it linked me to [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k59gXTWf-A]this[/url] trailer (well not literally to youtube, but I figure it's easier to link people to youtube to see the video). First time hearing about this movie, but wow did it pique my interest. They did a good job with showing just enough to have no clue what the heck it's about, but still want to know more. At least for me and a few others. What about you guys? Still a while away, but seems awesome so far (not more awesome than the Avengers that comes out 3 weeks before this, but still).
Colossus at Six Flags catches fire So did anyone hear about this today? It has a bunch of people paranoid about roller coasters, saying "see this is why I never get on those things" but the ride has been closed for a few weeks now so people weren't riding it when it happened (the park itself was actually closed too, they're only open on saturday/sunday during the off season). From the sounds of it, it caught fire due to whatever construction they were doing to it (going to turn it into a wooden hybrid with inversions and high banked curves). They were using metal cutting tools, so a spark likely set the wood ablaze. Pretty crazy still to see a coaster on fire. Although they just seem to be having bad luck lately with accidents. A
For those wanting to play ArcheAge The open beta and release are right around the corner now. Last night at PAX, Trion announced the open beta and launch dates I know some people were bummed they couldn't get an invite or a beta key into closed beta (I got invited into CB3), so now everyone has a chance to try it before they wipe everything and prepare for the head start and release. It will be free to play with the option of subscribing per month. I love that you can mix and match classes (it's not great for pvp but you could be a warrior, mage, and archer all in one if you wanted), and there's so much to do once you reach more areas. And flying around on gliders is fun too. For those that don't know much about the game, here's a few video
Deluxe Digital Promotion works with free game from Mk8 I don't know if you guys know about this, but if you have a Wii U deluxe there's a promotion going on with purchases from the eshop. If you register your Wii U deluxe [url=https://p.nintendo.net/deluxe/]here[/url] it picks up whatever purchases you make on your Wii U's eshop and gives you 10% of the purchase value in points (doesn't count for the Wii eshop on the Wii U). So a $59.99 game gives you 599 points and every 500 points gives you a free $5 credit on the eshop. So with all of that out of the way, when you redeem your free game from Mario Kart 8, that download counts as if you had paid the full eshop price for it and gives you the points in the deluxe promotion. So if you pick a
Persona 5 is officially announced So the game Persona fans have been hearing rumors about for a few years now has been officially announced today. There's only a [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mZssK05WYo]teaser trailer[/url] for it so far, but I for one, am excited. For a while there, people were saying it may have been canceled, with Atlus' parent company, Index, going bankrupt and being bought by SEGA, but it's still happening. It's coming out "Winter 2014" for the PS3 (that's right, not the PS4, still have another reason to keep your PS3's lol). Already some [url=http://c2s2.tumblr.com/image/68014767197]fan art[/url] popping up over the teaser too. This is sounding like it's going to be the darkest Persona game yet though
Updated patch notes So, Nexon updated the patch notes for the new content coming tomorrow morning. [b]Theme Dungeon: Colossus[/b] Requirement: Lv.150 or above Accept the quest '[Stone Colossus] A Giant of a Rumor' from the light bulb quest notifier o
Kovic and Bruce of Machinima are at the PS4 launch event in NYC, and they get their hands on the PS4 for the very first time. They get sort of goofy at the end though lol.
Playstation 4 Game List So with the two new consoles set to launch this month (PS4 will release Nov 15 for the US, Nov 29 for the EU, and Feb 22 for Japan), everyone is excited about what's coming up. So since basil now has a hub for both Xbox and Playstation, I decided to make threads for both new consoles listing their exclusive titles that have been announced so far and the release dates (the ones we know anyway). So here is the PS4 list, each game has a link to a video of the game, the genre and the release date. I tried to use videos that are more "game" than someone talking about the game, so a lot of the videos are just the E3 trailers and can be a little on the short side. I figured seeing the game is more exciting than a

A 12 minute Demo of the Xbox One, showing off the consoles skills. The demo is hosted by Xbox's chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi and corporate vice president Marc Whitten. It shows how you can personalise your dashboard, and stick your games, movies and music easily at hand. It shows some of the same things they showcased at E3, but you do get a little bit of Forza 5 gameplay in there. Plus, I thought it was cool that you can change gamer profiles with just your voice and it picks up on who you are.
The hellban issue As most of basil already knows, a lot of people have been hellbanned and are upset about it. I've been seeing people saying "they're all at fault," or "we should send tickets so they unban us," etc. Let me explain something though. Being hellbanned is simply trade blocked, hellban is the term the Maplestory community came up with. It does not mean you are banned (or will be), nor does it mean you will never be able to trade again. It's simply a temporary measure Nexon takes in situations like this to get things figured out faster. There have been illegitimate mesos and mounts floating around and they are trying to get to the bottom of it, now that they fixed the method used. It's harder to trace all of
Final Fantasy Xiii-3 Just read [url=http://www.shacknews.com/article/77429/lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii-preview-time-for-change]this article[/url] and it's sounding awesome. They're adding a time system, which, given my love of games with that feature (Xenoblade comes to mind <3), sounds like a welcome addition, if they pull it off right. Also really interested to see how the battle system turns out. That's a huge change for Final Fantasy to go action rpg style. The anticipation is going to be killing me for the rest of the year lol. So I know FFXIII got a lot of hate, but any other fans out there?
Drive Thru Invisible Driver Prank Okay so, forgive me if someone already posted this, but I thought this was [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVrJ8DxECbg]hilarious[/url]. So yeah, enjoy some laughs lol :)
