Review of Call of Duty World At War

Call of Duty World at War is a return to the World War two setting. The game covers the pacific while the player plays as the United States, and the game also covers the European war while the player plays as the Soviet Union against the Nazi’s. It is quite strategic in nature when compared to judi online baccarat and other similar games.

The first category I rated was the graphics and the audio. I rated this a 22 out of 25 because unlike the other Call of Duty games, this offers a brighter and nicer map set along with great level brightness on the story mode. The image quality is nothing to complain about and same is so for the audio.

I gave the gameplay a 22 out of 25 also because the story mode is great considering the fact that they cannot change what happens very much because this is set in the past during World War two. There are no problems with the controller and the controls that are located on the controller are the same as on the previous Call of Duty games.

Another section that I graded was the creativity. I gave the creativity a 20 out of 25 because the game setting in World War two does not offer the creators much flexibility. I liked the realism of it but that does not show creativity. The only thing that does show creativity is the Nazi Zombie mode which you unlock when you finish the game. This is actually incredible creativity but nothing else does. Nazi Zombies is game mode that goes through stages that get harder and harder. Nazi Zombies attempt to attack you and break into your safe house in a foggy scene. This game is playable in 1-4 players mode. It is also available online.

The last section that I graded was the fun factor. I gave it a 22 out of 25. I graded it this way because of its online play and long lasting fun. I played this game all the way up until the release of the next game, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. In the game you can rank up to higher levels and unlock weapons to use along with perks. If you do not have Xbox live this game may not be so fun because all there is is the campaign and the Nazi Zombies mode. Just like all the other Call of Duty games do not get this game unless you have Xbox live. You are lucky to have this game for the PS3, PC, or Wii because you will not have to pay for online gaming.

Call of Duty World at War proved to me to be a good game that is worth the money. But this is only if you have Xbox live or if you plan on buying this game for PS3, PC, or Wii. Although if you are planning to buy this game for anything other than the Xbox 360 you should know that online will be less of a challenge because I hear constantly that online for PS3 especially is incredibly easier. If you like World War two you should buy the game.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi

On the eastern edge of the mainland, on the inlet to the back bay of Biloxi, MS, is Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant. Planning began in 2000 but ran into many roadblocks including recalcitrant planning officials and tropical storms. Obtaining final approval in 2011, the project began with an anticipated opening in 2012 under the supervision of pkv games that has created a massive potential resulted in vaster audience base around the globe. The casino resort opened in May of 2012. As with all new projects in Biloxi, it is high off the ground to protect against storm surge during future storms. Rather than building on stilts as many builders do, the building has a breakaway first floor that can be swept away in a storm surge and leave the superstructure undamaged. It has 68,000 square feet of gambling, eating, and entertainment.

A large parking area is on the landward side of the facility. Unlike earlier boat based casinos in Mississippi, this resort is built on land. The entrance on the western ground level leads directly to escalators that take you to the main floor. Tucked under the escalators are elevators.

When you arrive on the main floor you are directly in front of Margaritaville Restaurant. Just to the left and up a short flight of steps the patron is in front of a bar where a large clock is displayed and set so that at anytime it is “five o’clock right here.”

The restaurant spreads out into a large, airy space that seats 400. The menu is light and offers reasonably priced daily meal specials in addition to such specialties as “Spinach and Artichoke Dip”, “Volcano Chili”, and “Jimmy’s Jammin’ Jambalaya”.

On the north side of the restaurant is a stairway that leads up to a seating and viewing area that is open to the bay and to the Marina that will be open in the spring of 2013. When Landshark Landing amp; Marina opens, it will feature a variety of food and drink, floating docks that will accommodate vessels up to 130 feet, and a seating area for outdoor entertainment.

The view from both levels of the restaurant and the Marina is spectacular. It includes the Back Bay and the bridge that spans the bay inlet between Biloxi and Ocean Springs.

The exit/entrance of the restaurant area faces the casino. Gaming machines in denominations from $.01 up through $25 satisfy the needs of video aficionados. Table games are located in the center of this area. There are 12 blackjack tables, a roulette wheel, 2 craps table, and 2 tables with specialty game. Betting limits on the table games begin at $5.00.

Palm trees are scattered throughout the casino and provide a tropical atmosphere. The music on the speaker system is Jimmy Buffett Caribbean and lends to the festive atmosphere.

On the north side of the casino is the Cashier’s Cage and the Players’ Club. Registration at the Players’ Club has benefits that include some free money with which to play the games.

At the western end of the casino is the Feeding Frenzy Buffet and the Events Center. These two locations are separated by a bar with video poker in the bar top. The buffet is a rather small room that can easily be expanded into the Events Center when space is needed. Specialty items on the buffet line include grilled pineapple at the carving station, a variety of cheese quesadillas, and a dessert area that is being continuously replenished with new and delectable items.

Unlike most of the casino resorts in Biloxi, Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant does not have a hotel. However, there are luxurious hotels within a few blocks.

Electricians- The Identity That Confirms Authenticity

Electrician checking cabling power line

We all have everyday problems in our lives that have to be dealt with time and time again. Life itself is one big struggle and one person alone cannot manage his problems all on his own.

It is quite evident that everyone, no matter how big and successful, would require the help of people whom they consider of small and labor class to solve the smallest of problems that they encounter everyday that may seem simple and easy at first glance but are quite difficult when they themselves try their hand at it.

There are many such people in our lives who belong to labor class such as workers, electricians, sewage cleaners, peons in office, to name a few who assist us by providing a helping hand at doing supposedly menial jobs and have no qualms or hesitation in doing so.

Electricians require a special mention here not because they are more important while others are not as much, but because they do their jobs handling electrical items that may prove dangerous in less able or wrong hands.

They are also of different types and therefore it is important that you will need to identify the one you may need at the moment. Electricians are called only during emergencies such as power failure or when you need to shift house.

Electricians 3

There are a subset of electricians such as residential, master, journeymen, commercial, etc. who are trained to identify the problem at hand and so it is all the more important to identify the right person for the specific problem.

Its not difficult as residential ones take care of household appliances while commercial ones look after construction sites and buildings. Likewise, a journeyman’s job is to look into power issues and security system snag, etc.

Invictus: How a Game Changed a Nation

Invictus

Several times have I heard that sports is a unifying force, but I failed to analyze how it could be so, since it usually involves the pitting of one team against another in what seems to be an undeadly combat. Yes, there might be the teamwork within teams in games, and there possibly is unity among the supporters of a particular team, but what often happens is that quarrels do come with these activities, not to mention the practice of some to hurt others. Still, I am awed whenever I see the Filipino people gathered in different places cheering behind one famous boxer that is Pacquiao. I am awed whenever I see people cheering for olympic candidates even if they are not their countrymen. Most of all, I am awed by what the film “Invictus” showed me.

In the Philippines, this film was shown in theatres since only a few days ago. Just in time for the conduct of the Winter Olympics in Canada, I thought. Maybe I am right, or maybe I am wrong. What matters though is neither this nor the fact that Mandela used Theodore Roosevelt’s “The Man in the Arena” instead of William Ernest Henley’s “Invictus”. What matter is the fact that sports do unite a nation. And this film shows a true story of how Rugby was used to unite a rising nation from apartheid–an era of discrimination and hatred.

The film is a great film because it was able to highlight the different themes in apartheid and post-apartheid Africa. It was able to highlight the oppression, hatred and racial discrimination widespread at that time. Furthermore, it was able to show the filmgoers how certain things including sports had been associated with these negative concepts. For one, the almost all-white Springboks team of South Africa had long been associated by the blacks with their oppressors, causing them to cheer for the team that is fighting South Africa in various games. So comes the challenge for Nelson Mandela of how one can retain Springboks which is a team very close to the hearts of the Afrikaners while making the native Africans–the Blacks–support the same group which they consider associated to their oppressors.

Invictus 2

What we do know is that he spent time breaking racial barriers in a personal level by personally coaching the team captain Francois Pienaar, by knowing their names individually, and by making them interact with the kids of the Black majority which view them as enemies. Doing so, Mandela was able to make the entire country–blacks and whites, Afrikaners and Negroes–support the same team to the Championship of the Rugby World Cup.

True enough, sports is a unifying force. And the movie showed us that unity is a winning strategy in the field of Sports. After all, what inspired the Springboks to win the Championship are not only the 63,000 supporters in the Stadium, but also the more than forty million South Africans throughout the country.

In short, the film is a must for all sports aficionados out there who have focused their ambitions to become a leading figure in the sports world but it is not that easy as you need to have a burning passion inside you to slug it out day and night and the field should be like a 안전놀이터.

“My First Wedding” is Headed to Divorce Court

My First Wedding 2

When I saw that “My First Wedding” was an official section of the Hollywood Film Festival, I suspected it would a movie that I would not like. Oftentimes Hollywood’s and my idea of a good movie are two different things (although that is certainly not always true). I was right! I hated almost everything about this movie. This is why I downloaded unlockmytv apk to avoid such movie horrors. I get a personalized list of movies that are according to my taste and have a high rating.

The film centers on bride to be Vanessa Sinclair (played by Rachael Leigh Cook). She is supposed to get married in three short days. However, she’s having a lot of second thoughts; about the bag boy, the jogger, the carpenter, and just about every other young man she meets. It seems that Vanessa has a “lust addiction.” She is lusting after just about every man she meets. Realizing this is a real problem she decides it is time to doing something about it.

At her wits end, Vanessa seeks refuse in a church confessional where she pours her heart out to a priest; or at least who she “thinks” is a priest. She tells him everything including the fact that her fiancé doesn’t want to have sex until their wedding night. She, on the other hand, wants to have sex now; right now!

The supposed priest is actually a young carpenter by the name of Nick Francis (played by British heartthrob Kenny Doughty) who is simply there to repair the confessional. Recognizing the opportunity to have a physical relationship without any of those nasty complications, Nick allows Vanessa to believe that he is, in fact, a priest. When she implores him to stick by her side until the day of her wedding so that she will remain faithful, he jumps at the chance.

The ladies man, with a reputation for loving them and leaving them – – for their own best friends, no less – – transforms himself into Father Nick with the intention of seducing the blushing bride. But surprise, surprise! He ends up falling for the girl.

Now desperate to stop the wedding so that he can Vanessa for himself, Nick pulls out all of the stops to waylay, crash, or stop the wedding; whatever it takes. He even ropes his sister into the game, hoping that she can seduce Vanessa’s fiancé to be unfaithful to her. When nothing else works, he performs the wedding ceremony himself, thus ensuring that Vanessa is still available.

My First Wedding 3

What ensues after the ceremony is just too ridiculous for words. The movie, which had already reduced itself to every horrible cliché known to man, then disintegrates into pure stupidity.

There is only a couple of redeeming things about this film. I’ll get to those in the moment. Everything else is beyond awful. The screenplay written by Joan Carr-Wiggin actually had a lot of potential. The story, in the right director’s hands, could have been cute; though hardly high comedy. At any rate, that doesn’t happen here, which is a real shame.

The director, Laurent Firode, had absolutely no idea what to do with this film. He took what could have been a charming screenplay and reduced it to absolute trash. Furthermore, he failed to pull in the reigns of Doughty who not only overplayed the role of Nick but demolished every redeemable quality of the character.

There is no denying that Doughty is attractive. I’ll even give him the fact that he has a magnetic presence on screen. However, if this film is any indication of his acting ability, I have to say that I hope he stays in England. He took what could have been a part with warmth, humor, and appeal and turned it into ridiculous slapstick comedy. It is way beyond too much.

I said that there was a couple of redeeming things about this movie. The first is Rachael Leigh Cook. Unlike her costar, Cook managed to play the humor of her character with perfect timing. She breathed life into what could have been a soulless part, making the audience actually feel her pain and care about what happens to her. She delivered scene after scene with grace, charm, and a rare luminosity. Unfortunately, she just can’t hold this movie afloat all on her own.

The other deeming factor about this film was Valarie Mahaffey, who played Rachel’s mother. There is something innately appealing about this very funny actress. Comedy comes natural to her and she can easily steal scene after scene when she sets her mind to it. She stole one or two in this movie without breaking a sweat.

It is always hard for me to declare a movie bad. I can generally find something redeeming in every film because I love movies that much. Unfortunately, sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade. This movie is bad with a capital B.

“My First Wedding” comes from Cinema Libre Studios and Paragraph Pictures and Buccaneer Films. It is a too long 96 minutes in length and caries a PG-13 rating for sexual language and situations.
