      Hey guys,

      Thought we could have this thread to kind of brag about the trophies we spent a lot of time in getting. One of my favorite things to do is to get a platinum trophy, especially in the games that I love! I would have to say that my favorite game that I went through and platinumed was...

      Screen_Shot_2012_06_22_at_3_33_32_PM.png

      Infamous 2 - That was one game that I really enjoyed every second of trying to platinum. Even the collectables had their own little side story to them.

      You know mine, what is your favorite platinum?

      As promised, I went out and took pictures. At first I drove the Jeep out to a nearby nature trail. I walked the trail some, took a few shots and then walked back out to see how epic my beautiful Jeep looked on a semi-wild backdrop. I thought it was absolutely perfect so I snapped a shot. It has been gorgeous outside today. No rain, a little cooler than normal. Perfect day to be driving the Jeep around. So I think this picture really tells the story about my day =). Bonus points if you can tell me where I got the title for this shot from.

      Hey guys. So for some reason I have been really lazy and not been going out to get my pictures, and for this I sincerely apologize, not only to you guys, but to myself. I think I have been hurting myself most by not going out there to make photographs and just staying inside taking pictures. So tomorrow I think I am going to work on shooting some stuff outside as well. It does not help that Florida weather is so rainy and the super bright sunshine in a matter of minutes. Ah but one cannot control the weather and work with what they are given.

      Read more at my blog =)

      Peace out yall

      Okay so I think I am going to start doing my photo blog on my company blog and on here. What does everyone think? Below will be a preview of an entry I have done.

      Stay Focused on the Moment,
      Ben Riddick.

      Day Thirteen from the Blog:

      3939972188_4b88e4bb7a.jpg

      Well today was a fun day. Inspired by the photographer I chose yesterday, Balakov, I went searching through my Legos to find cool Lego people. I think I will be doing a shot with Legos soon just for funsies! Haha. Tonight the original plan was to go shooting at a close airport. The problem with that is the fact that security does not like people stopping on the side of the road to take pictures of an airport runway. I am going to have to save that specific shoot for when my friend can get me onto the runway at a more active airport. Which is something I cannot wait for. So since going to the airport did not work, both Kenny and I drove around until we could think of something. Then I remembered this mill that is off of a trail that you can go down and we drove by, snapped some shots and went away. I really like how this came out actually. Made me happy!


      Photographer of the Day: Today I have to choose my old high school photography teacher, the man who got me really interested in this very awesome art, Scott Hamsik. At the moment he only has his Flickr photostream, but he really has done some amazing work. Especially on his car shots, like the one on the right here. Definitely someone I look up to in the photography world. One of the things I remember him always saying while anyone was working on a picture was “More Contrast.†To the point where if you were given a nickel every time he said it, at the end of a single day you would be rich. Probably the reason I love higher contrast images. Definitely go check out his work though!

      3483103164_460645ccc3_m.jpg

      Manual Page of the Day: Today I read all about ISO’s and noise reduction. Something that I really do use a lot of when I have to. Not that I have the best camera as far as how well noise reduction works, but there is a difference in using it and not using it. Especially with the high ISO. Very interesting stuff there!

      Well that’s all I have to say for the day. See you again tomorrow!

      Stay Focused on the Moment,

      Ben Riddick

      Well for those of you who do not know. I was born overseas in Austria and over there we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, therefore tonight is my Christmas. I wanted to make sure that those who read my journal know that I wish them a safe and Merry Christmas. If you don't roll the Christmas way, then I say to you Happy Holidays.

      Hope everyone has a good one!

    • Need for Speed Carbon Review

      12 years ago

      IceDrgn437

      I am going back into writing everyone some reviews on the Xbox 360 Games I play. So if you would like to, suggest games that you would like me to bring a review of.

      I bought this game in hopes of something that would be even better than Need for Speed: Most Wanted (which I absolutely loved). However I was kind of disappointed when I started racing and discovered how easy the game's single player career was. You start off choosing between 3 cars (Muscle, Exotic, Tuner) all of which are pretty easy cars to use especially when you are racing. Depending on the car you choose is the territory you start racing in.

      Now if I was going to compare this to NFS MW, which I will, I am going to say that I remember Most Wanted's races being a lot harder and took a lot more skill to finish. In Carbon you would have to be driving backwards to lose a race. Even the boss races were a joke. With each boss you would go into a regular city race where you could easily finish with a split time of at least 10 seconds and then go into the Canyon Duel, where if you have a good start you can pass the boss up and literally finish the race in 30 seconds. I think the only really hard race (and I use the term "really hard" lightly) was the last race where you are up against the Audi Quattro.

      Another thing that was a lot harder in Most Wanted were the Challenge Series races which I still have not beaten in the first one. In Carbon I think I spent maybe an hour on each level of challenges (Bronze, Silver, Gold). EA really seemed to tone the game down way too much.

      Online however is a lot of fun and I think the only reason I still own the game. The newly added gametypes pursuit tag and canyon duels are a lot of fun if you get matched up with some actually good players (which is also a little hard to find, not to trash talk the community). It is also nice to be able to download cars on the Marketplace. Thanks to the online I will probably not get rid of the game until the next Need for Speed installment comes out.

      Customization of the cars is also very very nice. You can do practically anything you want to them.
      Crews are cool to use but in my personal opinion not something you really need in the game

      Summary-
      If you love racing online, buy this game
      If you love getting some easy achievements, get this game
      If you only play for the Career or Challenge Series, I would advise against buy this game

    • Tournament and Sponsorship

      12 years ago

      IceDrgn437

      Well everyone. I have been gone for quite a while and I have decided that to celebrate my return to RvB I am going to host a Halo 2 RvB online tournament.

      Now this is how it is going to work. I need at least 8 people to join in. After that I need an even amount of people to come in (example: 8 then 10, then 12 etc) The winner will receive 100 mod points and a secret grand prize. The runner up will get 10 mod points. RvB Rules tell me I am not allowed to ask for mods but it would be greatly appreciated if the participants can donate to the mod pool. The winner of the tournament will get the mod points that were donated. I would like to have at least 3 sponsors that can donate mods to the cause too.

      Dates of the games will be set when participants are ready.

      The games will be 1v1 and each player will be assigned a number (1-8) this way no one will know who they are going to be put up against. The line up will be set up like this.

      Game 1: 8 vs 1---|
      ...............................|--Semi FInal 1: G1 Winner vs G2 Winner --|
      Game 2: 7 vs 2---|............................................................................|
      ............................................................................................................|
      Game 3: 6 vs 3--|.............................................................................|
      ...............................|--Semi Final 2: G3 Winner vs G4 Winner --|
      Game 4: 5 vs 4--|.............................................................................|
      .................................................................__________________|
      Semi Finalist 1 vs Semi Finalist 2<--|


      The Rules will be as follows:

      Game Map - Midship
      Semi Finals Map - Warlock
      Finals Map - Lockout

      1v1 FFA:
      Starting Weapon - Battle Rifle
      Secondary Weapon - Pistol
      Score to win - 25
      Round Time Limit - 20 minutes
      Weapons on Map - Halo Classic (no swords)
      Motion Sensor - Off
      Weapon Respawn - Double Time


      Rules:
      No plasma pistol and battle rifle combo
      No super jumps
      No BXB (as much as can be enforced)
      No BXR (as much as can be enforced)

      Must use all Steel colored spartan (reason stated below)
      No killing of a referee


      Breaking any of the above rules will result in immediate disqualification.

      Different Slots:
      Player - an actual participant in the tournament (Black Spartan)
      Referee - a person who will sit and make sure the rules are enforced (White Elite)
      Sponsor - a person who will put anywhere between 5-25 mods for the winner (RvB Member)


      Open Spots:
      Player 1
      Player 2
      Player 3
      Player 4

      Anyway back to the talk, these laws really are set up to help us understand the universe we live in, so it doesn't make it so as these laws are set in stone, its just based on theory, and I'm not even sure the guys diagram will work...

      Its all thanks to a guy I know down the pub I go to, and hes made me think about perpetual motion... supposedly someone has made a diagram that proves it... thing is if this is so then it violates the laws of physics O_o
