Here’s what’s on tap tonight:
1. Finals Flame Out?
If you know anything about me, then you know that I am a huge LeBron James fan and thus one of the Miami Heat, who are currently up 3-2 in their series against the rough and rugged Indiana Pacers. And even though nothing is guaranteed, it seems likely that they will win one of the next two games and advance to The Finals, where the San Antonio Spurs await after having swept the Memphis Grizzlies. But from what I’ve seen in this series, I’m concerned about my favourite team’s chances to repeat as NBA champions. Both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, two of the Heat’s Big 3, are injured and haven’t been playing well at all. Even in the last game, LeBron ended up taking over in the 3rd quarter (in which he scored 16 of his 30 points) and basically winning the game for his team alone with a little bit of help from one Udonis Haslem (he went 5-5 from the field in the 3rd quarter). If the Heat are to have a chance against the rested and waiting Spurs, then the Heat will need all of their cogs meshing together and that means both Wade and Bosh have to be very good or great. So far they haven’t been impressive. I sure hope I’m wrong about this…
If you love fighting games and you like DC comic book heroes, then you will absolutely love the video game Injustice: Gods Among Us for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or Wii. I have an Xbox, personally. The game is extremely fluid and fun, while allowing you to play with all of the heroes and villains you know so well; such as: Superman, the Joker, Batman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, Shazam, the Flash and Ares, to name a few. The game is one of, if not the best fighter I’ve ever played and is just an extraordinary amount of fun. The combos are wicked and the moves are entertaining and exciting. The levels are visually stunning and the story is solid. The game was made by NetherRealm, the same people who created the Mortal Kombat games, and does not disappoint from all of the epic trailers they released. If you’re super intense about gaming, they even break down the moves for you by frame rate; which is kind of ridiculous in my opinion, but I’m sure it’s very helpful. It’s great for casual gamers as well and works beautifully online even with a mediocre connection. Here’s a trailer. So yeah. Pick it up if you haven’t already.
3. Gomez Album and Chat
Again, if you know something about me, you know that I…err, appreciate what Selena Gomez does and stands for. Very recently she announced that she is going to be releasing a new album (this is coming after just putting out her latest single Come and Get It) and I’m pretty pumped. It’s been a long time since she made any music (I mean a really long time) and I enjoy listening to it. So I’m glad that now I’ll have options instead of just listening to the single on repeat. Gomez also said that she’ll be having a live chat on YouTube this Monday at 7:00PM to talk about the album, answer questions and of course, give away some prizes and stuff like that. It’s pretty cool that she’s been as active as she has been recently and it’s a good sign for fans. As a little extra bonus, she tweeted and posted on Facebook about an upcoming movie that she’ll be in called Getaway. Yes, things are looking up in the world.
Anyways, that’s all I’ve got for ya tonight.
