Thief - FX's newest innovative drama!

Thief is about a crew of men who do heists who have problems along the way.

In the first episode, aired this past Tuesday, the crew did a big heist and there was money involved(which wasn't apart of the plan to begin with) so they took it, but the money belonged to the Chinese Mafia but didn't know that at first.

You all know if you mess with the Chinese Mafia, you won't just die but they'll come after your family as well so no crossing the Chinese Mafia.

They had a fuss about whether they should give the money back and end it or if they should keep the money and screw them over. They decided to give it back but the Chinese Mafia isn't going to go away that easily.

That's all I'm going to say, I'll let you all watch Thief for yourself as it's promising to be a great season.

Thief airs Tuesdays at 10:00pm on FX.

Crysis - It'll blow you're freakin' mind!

Crytek, the makers of the Far Cry series brings us an all-new experience in their latest game, Crysis.

Crysis is an all-out action packed alien inspired game. The graphics are the best I've ever seen in any game period and will make the PS3's graphics look like a PS1 game as I'm sure the gameplay, controls, sound effects, etc will be top-notch, as well.

If you have any hope to run this game on you're computer, you'll need the best possible top of the line computer.

Crysis is set to be released later this year.

My impressions on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion[X-Box 360]

There's only one word to describe Oblivion and that's simply, "UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE!" Sorry, had to say it.


The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is set in the world of Tamriel where you can be anything you want, with 10 different characters, from the Mighty Orc to the Heroic Imperial to anything else, with every character having their own unique skills and abilities.

You can customize pretty much any aspect of you're character(s), from resizing the face, to skin color, hair length/color, to even age and complexion and a lot more.

Later in the beginning of the game, you'll get to select a Birthsign. There's 13 total, and each one represents you're very being and gives you the bonus points for you're attributes or even gives you a special skill or power. Also, you'll be able to select a class of up to 3 from a list of 21. You can either select 3 from the list or create a custom class which then you're able to select Combat, Magic or Stealth. Then you'll be allowed to select 2 of 8 attributes(The two will get 10+ bonus) and finally, you'll get to select 7 of 21 major skills. The 7 will start at 25(Apprentice Level), but you'll be able to get all of 21 major skills, but each one(not including the 7 you choose) will be at Novice Level, nothing higher until you level up.

Also, at the end of this area, you'll be given a second chance to re-choose what you've already done with you're character, like changing you're Character type/appearance, Birthsign and Class, so choose wisely and think about it for a minute, because after you leave the area, you won't have this special chance again.

Once you're out in the open world of Tamriel, you'll be able to roam where ever you wish to go, completing quests and the main story or just looking at the fantastic surroundings. There's so many quests to do, they say there's 100+ hours worth of quests so that'll keep you busy for many months to come!

The graphics in this game are simply breathtaking, the best I've ever seen in any game on any console before, besides cut scenes in games, not gameplay. You'll see swaying trees, the sky looks lifelike with moving clouds and even grass, not to mention the water.

The voice-overs are top-notch with lip-syncing to every word you hear and the sound effects, music, wow... simply amazing.

Now the gameplay, wow... the gameplay is just nothing more then phenomenal. There's so many things to do in this game you'll be playing it for months on end. There's no waiting for powers to charge up, like in games like World of Warcraft, if you have a sword you can swing it at will with no waiting at all. You have Health, Magicka and Fatique. You know what Health is(I hope, lol!). Magicka is what lets you use you're spells and powers, and once you run out of Magicka, you can't use you're spells or powers anymore until Magicka regenerates. It regenerates slow if you walk and fast if you run. Fatique is used for Combat attacks, running, swimming, etc and regenerates at a fast rate.

You'll be able to ride horses from city/town to city/town, but what's really awesome is the ability to go to each city/town by the click of the "A" button when you're on the map screen and on a city/town destination, you're able to Fast Travel there as long as you've visited that specific city/town before.

There's honestly a lot to do in Oblivion, as I've said before which will easily go up to 130 hours of gameplay. If you havn't yet tried this game out, you must... don't rent it, don't borrow it from a friend, just go out to you're local GameStop or EB or where ever and buy this game now, you won't regret a second of it!

Also, I'd recommend getting Collector's Edition, since it comes with a few extra bonus items for the extra $10, like a Semptim Gold Coin(Currency in the game) which is pretty awesome.

Anyways, I think that wraps things up... thanks for viewing. :)

My impressions on the Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

Yesterday I bought the new Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard to see if it's a really good gaming keyboard and it is.

Everything about it seems to be useful in one way or the other. For starters, it has blue backlit keys for easy in the dark navigation that has three displays, no backlit, low backlit and high backlit.

Also, one of the main features of the G15 is the LCD display that can open and close at will, which can display the time, date and a 12 hour clock, CPU usage and memory, and even media information when playing a song or a movie. Also, scripts can be downloaded that has other features for different application that will coincide with the LCD display.

The G15 also features two usable USB slots at the top of the keyboard both on each side of the LCD display that I've tested with my wireless mouse and digital camera and they both work great.

The G15 also features one of the best things about the keyboard are the 54 possible Macro or "G" keys. You can assign anything to each key, such as a website, application, program or anything else you can think of or imagine(pretty much). You can also use the "G" keys in game, which is the most importain aspect of the G15 and it works very well. You'll be able to create a new profile for each game you have installed which is a possible 54 "G" keys per game. The ingame "Quick Macro" feature is a nice touch too which allows you to record keystrokes ingame then when you press the specific "G" key, it'll mimic what keystrokes you did and play them back for you automatically.


The LCD Display.

Two USB slots on the keyboard itself.

Uses USB not PS/2.

Three levels of the blue backlit keys.

The enormous amount of possible macro or "G" keys you can assign.


The price, but the features of the G15 can easily make up for that, but still... some people don't want to pay $80 for a keyboard.

Some people are complaining about the paint of the keys chipping off or fading away after a few weeks or something like that, but when it happens I'll believe it.

Rating: 9.0

Well, that's all I have for my impressions on the Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard. Check back later tonight or tomorrow on my impressions on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

World of Warcraft player banned for using Logitech's newest gaming keyboard, the G15!

A WoW player was banned recently for using Logitech's newest gaming keyboard, the G15, but I don't think he was banned for using the keyboard persay, but for using the binded macro buttons to do certain things in game, which supposdely are against WoW's TOS, but only when unattended.

The player had one of the many macro buttons on the keyboard programmed to do three things at once while watching a movie, but he was still there, even though his actions were "bot-like" according to Blizzard.

I hope they give him a second chance, as he has appolized several times and this was his first offence, as well. He has played WoW for 3000 hours and has two Level 60 Characters on two different servers, so I think he deserves another chance.

His story was also submitted to, a HUGE website for User-Submitted stories:

The story has recieved over 3000 diggs and has gotten over 300 comments regarding the matter.

Even though what the player did was wrong, according to Blizzard, I hope this story is submitted to many other websites across the internet so that Blizzard will overturn their decision on banning this dedicated WoW player.

Only time will tell now.

At last... the wait is finally almost over... 5 days away, and The Soprano's will return, in it's final "supposedly"(Let's hope not) last season.

It's been 2 years since Season 5 and all questions will be answered since then. This should be the best Season yet as everything will unfold. Do not miss it this Sunday on HBO!
