Diablo III Beta Gameplay Video is Up....First of Many

So I got in on the Diablo III Beta finally, and I managed to get it installed, with alot of computer savvy I might add. The launcher and setup file were kinda buggy, but I worked through it using every trick in the book. The video is short, but there are more to come. Right now I'm working through a Demon Hunter, I'll add more videos in the near future. Enjoy!!!!!! Oh, and look forward to seeing some Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta gameplay vids soon, the NDA was lifted and I have access again this coming Saturday, I'll try to post later that night if I'm not too busy!!

We think too much and feel too little...

In light of the recent actions being taken against the protester's involved in the Occupy movement, I would like to share with you what is, in my opinion, one of the greatest moments in cinematic history.

Released in 1940, The Great Dictator, written, directed, produced and starred in by Charlie Chaplin, this film was released as a satirical commentary on Fascism, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party as well as the current state of affairs in Europe in general. The following is transcript of the speech given by one of Chaplin's characters towards the end of the film. In my mind, this is one of the most incredible pieces of movie history. This resonates with me so greatly and applies now just as much as it did in 1940. Enjoy while you read, and give the movie a watch if you get a chance!

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair".

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish. . .

Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written: "The kingdom of God is within man" Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, the people.

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let's use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age and security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!

. . .

Look up! Look up! The clouds are lifting, the sun is breaking through. We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world. A kind new world where men will rise above their hate and brutality.

The soul of man has been given wings, and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow, into the light of hope, into the future, that glorious future that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up. Look up.

Well, gotta love Cogeco Cable

I was going to post a new BF3 video tonight, but that's unfortunately out of the question thanks to the folks over at Cogeco who really dropped the bomb. I'm writing this from my Netbook while using the wireless at the library at the University since Cogeco (my ISP) has allowed my internet to decrease in speed from a steady 30mbps down to a measly 0.5mbps. It literally is impossible to do anything internet related at my home right now.

Now, before I really get into my rant, I have worked in customer service for an ISP so I always take the most polite approach when speaking to an individual in the industry, but today I had enough. I lost it, so many requests through e-mail and phone for troubleshooting and repair have gone unanswered, or answered with utter bullshit. I understand that things happen, equipment wears out etc...but for a couple weeks now my internet has been slow, increasingly slower as the days have gone by, and intermittent as well. I have VOIP with my ISP as well so my home phoneline has been out as well and my digital cable has been pixelating non-stop and on-demand is a crapshoot on whether or not it's actually going to work or not.

My family pays $60 a month just for the internet portion alone, 30mbps downstream and a pint sized 1.5mbps upstream. With those download speeds, I can clear my 175gb cap in less than a week. This is the part that get's me going the most, it's ridiculous. Yes, I am a heavy internet user, I am not the average user, I download alot, I game alot, almost everything I do is cloud based, so yeah, most people may not have to deal with this, but I get nasty letters from Cogeco on a monthly basis threatening to shut me down if I don't slow down, not to mention the ultimate kick in the pants, the massive overage charges I am subject to on a regular basis. All the major ISP's have similar packages in regards to speed, and most are similar in cap size, although some are more abysmal than other's ****cough....Rogers...cough*****.

Compared to the rest of the developed world, Canadian's are some of the biggest sucker's when it comes to internet costs, considering we have one of the most solid internet backbone's and one of the most ultra developed infrastructures in the known world, this is pathetic, if you don't believe me, take a look at this wonderful chart below, courtesy of Gizmodo.

The chart to the right was designed in 2009 and since then the disparity in price has only grown. Now of course there are going to be alot of naysayers and people who claim that other's like me are just whining and should shut up and accept it. But unfortunately, in this day and age, gouging and price fixing like this should not be allowed to continue (and yes, price fixing, just like gas prices, are actually a violation of The Criminal Code of Canada, look it up). The argument in favour of these bandwidth caps, speed throttling and overage charges is that it relieves network congestion, well, that is just not true, and as the recent hearings on Usage Based Billing have shown us, these tactics are purely for monetary gain and nothing out (a representative from Roger's admitted to this when question by the CRTC).

They are businesses, and we do live in a free market economy, but when the internet, like fuel, became a necessity, not a luxury, these ISP's gained a monopoly over our lives and we need to fight for our right to have free and fair access to the services we rely upon and pay so much money for. After all, if you went to an all you can eat buffet and were told there is a $5 charge for every plate after the first one, wouldn't you cry foul as well?

We need to step up and do our part to end the neoliberal influence on our lives. Check out and join the fight against Big Telecom alongside the country's largest advocacy group!

Netflix Canada down :(

It's down again, for me anyway. As of about 12am Eastern tonight, Netflix became inaccessible via my Xbox 360. After several minutes of a staring at a blank black screen I am given the message: "This game requires a connection to xbox LIVE." Oddly enough, Xbox Live is working fine, I've been ripping Call of Duty Zombies for the last 2 hours with no problem, and I accessed Zune just for fun after about the 4th attempt at connecting to Netflix, Zune launches no problem.

I have gone ahead and contacted Netflix Support via Twitter and we will have to wait and see how long it takes them to get back to me or if I just maanage to ride out the outage beforehand. Either way I'll post an update as soon as their is new info.

Edit -- 3:58am: We're back in business baby with no word from Netflix themselves about what caused the issue.

Anonymous -- Operation Darknet & Operation Fox-Hunt

I was reading around today, came across a couple of interesting things, both having to do with the hacker/social justice group 'Anonymous'. Just figured I'd share them with anyone that happens to come across this page.

First is a link to an article over at about the upcoming planned attack on Fox News in retaliation for the portrayal of the members of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Operation Fox-Hunt

And here's the video announcement:

The second piece regarding Anonymous that I came across was in regards to their Operation Darknet, a concerted effort to rid the internets of Child Pornography. The link to the article and accompanying video announcement are below. Article credit goes to

Video Games Protected By The 1st Amendment

So it's official, Video Games now have the same constitutional protection in the United States that films, comic books, novels and other forms of popular media enjoy. The Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that struck down a 2005 law in California which severely restricted the sale of Video Games on the basis of what is considered "too violent".

Now being a Canadian, this doesn't affect me much, but I think this news is overall just jam-packed with social-justice and video game goodness that I just had to post about it.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Another day, another EPIC game trailer. This time it's for the next chapter in the Legend of Zelda saga....Skyward Sword. Now I've been looking forward to this game, but the trailer is making me do a double take, it doesn't look like it's going to be as gritty as Twilight Princess was, but more cute like The Wind Waker. I don't know how this is going to go over, but considering I'm a die hard Zelda fan, I'll buy it nonetheless.

My feet are that much more lonely now

Keeping with how comical my life is, while sprucing up the garden this afternoon with some Cedar mulch, I made the much ill-informed decision to throw the shovel down on the ground, exactly where my foot was. Suffice to say, I am now missing about 4mm of the tip of my big toe. The ER doctor thought it was rather funny, and told me since it missed the bone, all I can do is just keep it wrapped in gauze and lather it in polysporin once and a while. He did give me a small script for some pain meds which I don't think I'll use since I have a few grams of my own pain meds, i.e. Cannibus.

In other news, I walked in on my buddy masturbating yesterday, pretty funny, and pretty awkward as well. It's his fault, don't leave your front door unlocked when your jerkin your gerkin and expecting people to come over. For those of you confused as to what masturbation is....check this out Touching Yourself

Now one issue I am interested in speaking about today, dirty tactics in hockey. Why, you may ask? Well, as most Canadians and many American's know, the Stanley Cup finals started last night and it was quite an intense game, all credit goes to the goaltenders for keeping it so damn exciting. Anyway, Patrice Bergeron and Alex Burrows at the end of 1st Period got into a Scrum which ultimately ended in Burrows allegedly trying to feast upon Bergeron's delectable middle finger. Now, obviously dirty little Mike Tyson-esque moves like this shouldn't be accepted, but at the same time, Hockey has always been a bit of a dirty sport, throwin elbows when you can, hitting from behind, and of course the tolerance of all out brawling. Bergeron face washed Burrows, Burrows clamped his fangs down on Bergeron's finger? Who is to blame here? From my own experience and education, biting when smothered is actually quite a natural defence mechanism. Anyway, what I'm trying to ask here is, was this really a suspendable offence? Both men were going at it even when the linesman was clearly trying to break them up. Burrows ultimately didn't get suspended, but should it have even been a possibility? I mean...far worse goes unpunished in this sport...doesn't it?
