April Fools, Google Style
I have to say, I am not a huge pokemon fan, but I think this is cool! Too bad this is just an April Fool's joke. Then again, knowing that Google has Niantic Labs and Ingress, what's there to stop them from creating something like this? I say go for it :) Create an augmented reality pokemon game using google maps ;-)
Star Trek Fan Productions - Part II
It's been a while since I started watching fan-made series, so I decided to write a few quick words on some of the fan-made Star Trek series I've been watching.Dark ArmadaThis is a Dutch series as far as I can tell. The whole series is a set of mini episodes that all together tally up to the length of one regular television episode. At the end you have a cliffhanger: a dark armada coming

Right before classes started a few weeks ago I decided to start playing Halo 4. Given the amount of games I ended up getting on Black Friday last year it was a bit tough to decide what to play next, but I thought that since the next Halo isn't coming for a while (and probably will only be on xbox one), this seemed like a good game to play for the story.This was the first Halo game I've played on the
Modern Warfare 3 | Done!
Just in time, before the semester starts, I was able to complete the third part of the Modern Warfare trilogy! So, from previous games in the series, we know that the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. Task force 141, the original good guys, have been disavowed, but they are working hard to take care of the villain in this story who made things the way they are. Throughout the game we jump
Andromed | Re-viewed
Back when I was an undergraduate, and working two jobs and going to school full time, I had started watching another Roddeberry show called Andromeda. Since my schedule was irregular, and Andromeda may have shifted time-slots I wasn't quite sure when I'd be watching the show. Sometimes I caught it on the regularly scheduled time on the WB, and other times I'd miss it because of work (or traffic

Just in time to end my holiday break and get back work, I completed Assassin's Creed 4! I ended up getting AC4, like my previous 2 AC games, on Amazon.com's Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals for a reduced price. I could have waited a few more months to get the game at less than half the price (factoring in a used cost), but I got it new for $30. Not too bad!I liked this game quite a lot both
Άντε, να’ μαστε και πάλι!
Άντε, άλλη μια χρονιά πέρασε, ήρθαν ξανά και τα γενέθλια, και ως είναι πια καθιερωμένο, από τις ημέρες του παλιού μου ιστολογικού Είμαι Φοβερός και το Ξέρεις, είπα να γράψω ένα δημοσίευμα. Το κακό φέτος είναι πως τα γενέθλια
Star Trek fan productions
Since I am all done with the Canon Star Trek films and TV series, with the exception of the animated series which I am slowly watching), I decided to venture out into the expanded universe of books and fan made productions. Since Star Trek Renegades has not been released yet, I though I would go through the back catalog of videos based, and some audio based, fan fiction. These are os moved brief reviews:
Sphere of influence: first weekend
U.S.S. Amaliada A week ago season 8 of Star Trek online was released. Of course it was released on on Tuesday which meant that I wouldn't get to it until the weekend. Oh well, it was worth the wait. Over the weekend I spent some time trying out the new areas on the Solenae Dyson Sphere with my main character (federation tactical captain) to get a bearing. Before the season was released I was really
Star Trek Online Season 8 now available :)
It's here! Finally out of beta :)Now, if only it were available yesterday when I had a day off... I guess I will have to wait until the weekend.
