GTA 4 Trailer

I came across the below video on DailyMotion.com. It's a trailer of the upcoming video game GTA (Grand Theft Auto) 4. I don't know which system the game is being shown on in the trailer but it looks really good. I have no idea of what the story will be for this part. If anyone knows feel free to leave a comment.

Yahoo email to offer unlimited storage

Yahoo Mail will be offering unlimited storage for its' free web based email in May, according to an article on ZDNet. Right now Yahoo Mail offers 1 GB of space. I am only using around 5% of my 1 GB so the unlimited storage won't really affect me I think but now I won't be afraid to keep emails with big attachments such as large images. I think this is a good move by Yahoo to get more users to use their email rather than Google's Gmail or Windows Live Hotmail.

Top 25 games for PC and PS2

IGN has put together the top 25 games for gaming systems. The top 25 PC game list and the top 25 PS2 game list caught my attention because those are the two systems that I play games on whenever/if I get any free time. Some of the games that I like are on their lists such as: Half-Life 2 listed at #9 on the PC list (although I think this should be #1), Sim City 2000 listed at #8 on the PC list (I use to play this game back in high school, this brings back those city building memories), Resident Evil 4 listed at #15 on the PS2 list (although I liked part 2 and 3 better than part 4), Burnout 3: Takedown listed at #10 on the PS2 list (probably my favorite racing game), and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas listed at #8 on the PS2 list.

Spider-Man 3 preview and trailer

I'm a fan of the Spider-Man movies and I'm excited about the new one coming out in May, Spider-Man 3. This movie will have Venom, which if you read the comic books or have seen the Spider-Man cartoon show then you know about what happens to Peter Parker and Eddie Brock.

But from one of the trailers though I watched it looks like they make the person who killed Uncle Ben the person who turns into Venom. But in the cartoon show the "stuff" that comes from outer space consumes Peter Parker at first and turns him a little evil (and Spider-Man's suit is now black instead of red). Peter eventually fights off the "stuff" and it finds another host which was Eddie Brock, I think is a fellow photographer but is jealous of Peter. Eddie Brock turns into the Venom who gets Spider-Man's powers and is a bad guy who fights with Spider-Man. So we'll have to wait and see how the movie changes things and if it's good or bad.

I've embedded a Spider-Man 3 preview and a Spider-Man 3 trailer below. Clips are from YouTube.com.

An Official Spider-Man 3 Trailer

Seeing more previews of the new Spider-Man 3 movie, I was wrong about who Venom is in the movie. I first thought that the guy who killed Peter's Uncle Ben is the guy who turns into Venom but now I know it's the Sandman who killed Peter's uncle. I've heard that the movie has done well in theaters as it came out this past Friday. I want to see this movie but I don't have time to right now.

Blog update complete

Well I think I am all done making updates to the look and feel of my blog. Not many big changes at all, just some minor color changes (now green instead of maroon), changed the right side of the blog with more links (more links to come on the right side). And for those who wanted to see a picture of me, I finally added a really small picture of me with my fiancee Amanda on my blog.

Blog design update in progress

This blog may look different or weird in the next hour or two as I'm going to update it to the new Blogger type of blog. I will probably keep the same layout but I'll definitely be changing the colors. So if the blog looks weird for a little bit, then you know why. I should stop tweeking it in an hour or two and be all set by later tonight.

An update to a truly sad story

Back in December I posted about a sad story, about a couple that was going to get married, but the night before the wedding the groom was shot and killed by New York police. I haven't heard much about this incident until Monday. An article on the BBC site on Monday says that:
"Two New York policemen have pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and assault charges over the shooting of an unarmed man on the day he was to be married. A third officer has pleaded not guilty to assault charges."

"The BBC's Guto Harri in New York says the charges are among the most serious which can be levelled against serving police officers."

"Detectives Michael Oliver and Gescard Isnora have been charged with manslaughter in the first and second degrees, implying both intent to harm and recklessness."

"Mr Isnora was the first to shoot and is accused of firing a total of 11 bullets. Mr Oliver is accused of firing 31 of the nearly 50 bullets aimed at Mr Bell and his two companions."
I wanted to keep those who are interested about this story as I am up-to-date with what is going on. Hopefully these men who are suppose to protect and serve everyone (no matter their skin color) get the jail time they deserve.

Blog update coming soon

Hi everyone, in the coming weeks my blog will be changing just a little bit. It will be moving to Blogger 2.0, also I think I'm going to change the colors, and the blog will have more of personal touch as I am going to start to write more about my life and things that are happening with me. All of my previous posts will stay, and don't worry I am still going to post about video games, sports, technology with the web, movies, and music.

My life in the coming months will be changing as I will be getting married in June and living with my wife of course, that will be new. I'll be moving away from my home town Boston, MA and to Buffalo, NY where my fiancee and I will be starting our married lives together. I am excited about married life and spending everyday with the one I love. I will share some of those married moments on my blog.

Don't worry I will not become a Yankees fan. Even though my fiancee has tried countless times to get me to become a Yankees fan I have held my ground and did not cross over to the "dark side." Red Sox fans will know what I'm talking about.

Celtics Gerald Green's awesome dunk

Well I'm not a die-hard basketball fan but I watch an occasional game. Since I live in Boston, I mostly see Celtics games whenever I do watch basketball. The Celtics team has changed a lot with a lot of younger players. Anyways I heard that Celtics' Gerald Green made an awesome dunk at this years' All-Star game dunk contest. Well I found a YouTube video of it and posted it in this post below. The Gerald Green dunk over Nate Robinson was sweet but his dunk over a table was just awesome. I'm not that big a basketball fan but this caught my attention. Wow Green can jump, and so can Robinson.
