Marvel vs Capcom 3: Special Edition – $69.99 + Free T-shirt and Shipping (PS3 & Xbox360)

30 Jan

Have you ordered Marvel vs Capcom 3? Well if you have, CANCEL THAT ORDER and order it off Capcom instead!

They are offering free (release day) shipping AND a free t-shirt with the order of any edition of MvC3. Now I recommend that you just buy the Special Edition because it’s only $10 extra compared to the Standard Edition and on top of that; you will get a bunch of cool bonuses such as early access to Jill Valentine and Shuma Gortah, 1 month unlimited access to Marvel Digital Comics, bonus artwork and a comic; all of this with free shipping and a t-shirt featuring Shuma Gorath.


So what are you waiting for? Order one now!

Note: Be sure to use the promo code THANKYOUTEN to knock 10% off the order.

So, recently I joined a website called SwagBucks. It is a site where you share your opinions and get rewarded for doing so!

Every time you finish a survey or complete an offer you earn points called Swagbucks.

These Swagbucks can be used to redeem all kinds of gifts from Amazon Gift Cards, video games, video game systems, electronics, smartphones, iPods etc.

You can also use your Swagbucks to participate in sweepstakes and lotteries in which winners will get big prizes!

I’ve personally used it  to get Amazon Gift Cards. I am saving up for Dragon Age II, Crysis 2 and Mortal Kombat: Collectors Edition.

Swagbucks have helped me get $80 so far, so I’ve basically gotten Dragon Age 2 for free!

Here is the link:

Now, realizing that I can get things for free for just sharing my opinion, I figured there must be other sites similar to SwagBucks! and I found them!

The other two similar websites are PrizeRebel and Points2Shop.

However unlike SwagBucks, you can custom order your prizes off Amazon and eBay!

This is what I've received from Points2Shop

Both PrizeRebel and Points2Shop function the same way as SwagBucks. You share your opinion by completing surveys and complete offers to get your reward.

Make sure to sign up to all three so you can get more gifts.

Here are the registration links

Music in Movies and Video Games

2 Aug

Let me introduce you guys to Hans Zimmer.

If you’ve seen Inception, The Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean series, and The Last Samurai, then you’ve listened to his music.

Most people ignore the background music when watching movies or playing video games.

The next time you watch a movie, stay for the credits (or pause the game) and sit back to enjoy the music. It might be iPod worthy and you might even learn a thing or two about orchestral music!

I used to deliberately expose myself in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, just to listen to the Alert theme. One of my friends actually has Ken’s theme from Street Fighter as his ring tone.

To end this note, I’ll leave you guys with taste of Zimmer’s badassery. And I assure you, it IS pretty badass!

This is “Mombasa” from the movie Inception

P.S. Make sure to check out “Time” by Hans Zimmer. It’s currently the second most viewed and listened to film score on youtube. You’ll see why!

Currently Playing – Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Xbox 360)

2 Aug

The Battlefield franchise by EA and DICE is perhaps one of the most unique FPS series in the history of video games. The original Battlefield 1942 multiplayer supports as much as 64 players for the PC. I believe over the years; private servers became capable of holding up to 128 players with little to no lag. I believe that is exactly how multiplayer war games should be – largely scaled.

Remember the Omaha Beach scene in Saving Private Ryan? Yeah, that pretty much sums up the intensity and explosiveness of the franchise’s gameplay

Now, Battlefield veterans would know that the highlights of the franchise are its multiplayer component.

So far I’ve spent approximately 60 hours on BC2 multiplayer since April, and each of my multiplayer experiences were never the same. Thanks to the Frostbite engine, buildings and terrains are destructible, allowing you to strategize more dynamically, and have different experiences every time you play.

Is there a sniper hiding in the attic of a building that’s pestering your team? Just blow up the entire building (notice I didn’t say “attic”). Need to prevent enemy tanks from advancing? Create some holes on the ground and plant your landmines there, or topple some buildings to slow down your enemies movements.

Mind you, if you’ve never tried a Battlefield game before, start with Bad Company 2. You wont be disappointed.
