COD Advanced Warfare: Hardcore is Down on 360

Links to this post

Are you a COD Hardcore Mode Fan? Well I'm sorry to say that for the last few hours that mode of game play is unavailable.

Players have been stuck in a nonsense loop of maps loading, only to be kicked back to the lobby after an awful "Awaiting Connection..." time out.

There's plenty of room in the standard lobbies, but what's frustrating is not being able to find any information by Activision or Sledgehammer as to why an entire section of a game isn't working.

So far this is only confirmed with Xbox 360.

Call of Duty Ghosts: Nemesis is Upon Us "Some One's Gonna Die"

Links to this post


In case you haven't heard by now, the final DLC installment "Nemesis" will be available for download on August 5, 2014 for Xbox One and Xbox 360 respectively.  I can't be more excited, I mean I'm so excited I probably won't even sleep tonight, but I might.

It all depends on if tradition is kept up from the last DLC release. The last DLC was released at 2:00am PST (Pacific Standard Time), but actually now its called PDT because of daylight savings, but this isn't a forecast lesson.

What I can tell you is that if you are in North America on the West Coast, you should see the download available as early as 2am. If your not sure what time that is for your area, here is a Time Zone Converter that you can use.

So for the fans who just can't wait to download and start enjoying their new maps, and for the haters who can't wait to play so they can find something new to bitch about; what time is your Gametime?

And as always you can find me with my Ripper as Th3 L4ST DR4G0N

Do You Own A Smartphone? ANT Radio Service App and The NSA Are Spying On You Right Now

Links to this post

After checking my recently updated apps on my Samsung Galaxy S5, noticed an update for an App called ANT Radio Services. I have never downloaded it, and had never seen it before on my App list.

The description is extremely vague and the only photo makes it seem like it is supposed to connect YOUR wireless devices together,  but upon lookin into the permissions of the app I was outraged and appalled that this was forceably installed on my device.

These permissions go well beyond location. This app is taking full control over the entire phone, tapping into your personal home WiFi, listening to your phone conversations, reading your text messages, looking into your browsing history, and the list goes on and on.

This is a direct infringement on yours and mine rights! The 4th amendment is supposed to protect us from illegal search and seizures. We are being victimized by illegal wiretapping as American citizens without probable cause.

I for one will not stand for this, and I will take this to my Attorney General, State Representative and Congresman.

XBOX LIVE Gold Not Working "The Current Profile is not allowed to play on Xbox Live"

Links to this post


Don't be alarmed if you're trying to play a game right now and it's telling you that "The Current Profile is not allowed to play on Xbox Live" I tried to play Ghost a few minutes ago, and I got this error message, which led me to start googling away like a mad man. That led me to do a xbox live connection test when I got a message saying go to xbox.com/service alerts where we learn this.

    We’re aware that some of you are being prompted to purchase a Gold subscription despite the fact that you already own one, and we’d like to assure you that we’re on it! Thanks for hanging in there while we work. Another update is coming your way in half an hour.

It's 10:13PM Central Time USA where I am, and I just got home from work. I'm guessing half an hour was a looooong time ago. here is their link if you need to get updated.

Guess I'll play something else for now.

The Use of Nigger and Faggot: Online Interactions Not Rated By The ESRB

Links to this post
The words sting just reading them don't they? You almost feel angry and ashamed at the same time that I could be so callus to write something so awful. But, I have your attention don't I?

If you're not a multiplayer gamer or spend countless hours browsing YouTube and actually reading the comments,  I don't expect you to understand, but everyone should be aware
Long lost are the days of innocence. Shredded is the fabric of moral being.
 
Idiot, asshole, motherfucker, bitch, slut. As repulsive and prepubescent as these words are, they have long since been "acceptable" by the online gaming community, as rhetorical insults and a release valve when someone ruins your perfect kill steak right when your about to aquire Odin or you lose your last life in the last level of a game you spent hours on, most online gamers are used to someone typing or shouting out random obscenities.

YouTube, Game Chats, almost any public forum where freedom of speech is allowed to be expressed, it never fails. There are always those few who feel that our freedoms don't come with responsibilities.
Is it because they don't care? Is it because they were "raised" that way? Or are they simply just dicks?

By no means am I pulling the Love thy neighbor song and dance or we are the world bullshit. What I am saying or rather asking is, Where is the line? Who failed to instill basic civilism in those who would choose to use the most repulsive words we have in out English language just to get under someone's skin?

What's sadder is that rarely are these comments being made by adults in their 30's or older, but young teens.

That Battlefield 4 that you had to buy your 12 year old for Christmas,  he's in his room right now using his microphone to call someone a faggot because they shot him. Wondering why your son had you buy him the exact same Cal of Duty game twice? It's because his peers reported him multiple times for typing nigger over and over and over again.

There are many ways to show a distaste for something or someone.  You can also get under someone's skin easily. What you don't have to do is go so far as to reach into the darkest part of your human being just to be a dick.
