Man of Tomorrow?

Somehow I can actually see DC comics doing this.

Actually someone I used to hang out with and I had this theory that Marvel Comics employed ninjas to listen in on conversations and that is where they got most of their ideas.


The questions used to get to the answer are more entertaining than the answer itself.

It's called "Backpedaling".

It was announced today that Microsoft will be reversing direction on the DRM for the forthcoming Xbox One. I am in favour of this decision, but I am also cautious. Based on comments by Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business President Don Mattrick the decision was made based on gamer feedback. However, if the restrictions are this easy to change/remove, what is to keep them from re-implementing them later? The answer is vigilance. We, as gamers (or people against DRM and invasion of privacy (more of that in a minute)), need to continue to make our voices heard. Personally I don't want the kinect, but I do sorta want an xbone. There are games that are exclusive to Microsoft that I do want to play I'm looking at you Dead Rising 3. Thankfully there is recently introduced Legislation that, if passed, will change how the kinect camera is used to gather information, and giving the user greater control over it.

All that said this is still reason to celebrate. Previously gamers have been ignored (well mostly), but this proves what a united front can accomplish. I'd say that this can even be applied to non-gaming related things. If we dislike something we do not have to sit back and take it. If we come together and make our voices heard we should be able to beat anything.

On a complete side note I am totally geeking out over the E3 trailer for The Order: 1886. As a brand new IP it looks to be quite promising. Chick it out...

It is really no secret that I am a video game fan. Recently I stumbled across this kickstarter;

I have fond memories of the first two SOCOM games, so this is definitely something I'm interested in. Plus the man has a very honest sounding first name. I'm sharing because I want it to succeed.

For those wondering H-Hour is the military term used to denote the specific time at which an operation or exercise commences, or is due to commence.

Question: If you do the wrong thing for all the right reasons, is it still wrong? It isn't really a question of the ends justifying the means. More a question of if something is wrong according to society but it is done to achieve a positive outcome, is it still the wrong thing to do?
