Google+, a flop?

As some of you may know, Google+ launched in July on an invite only basis. Google's third take on the social media market quickly exploded to 25 million users in less then three months. Investors and competition alike were on their heads.  Google's new take on the social media market was to "make connecting to people more like interacting with them in the real world". Another attraction that interested people was google's take on privacy. Unlike competitors Facebook and Twitter, Google+ offers an array of privacy settings that lets you choose who sees what and who cant see anything.
But already, Google+ is reporting a 40% decrease in concurrent user activity. Less posts are being made each day, more users are going inactive. The head of the Google+ is reportedly "well aware" of just how quickly things can go down the gutter in the internet business. Im thinking Google still has their two other Social media failures on their mind (Wave and Buzz)
In my opinion, Google is going at it too hard. With all these new features and settings, its going to leave the layman in the dust.  The reason Facebook is such a monster and has a monopolistic grip on the market is because of its simplicity. G+ is just trying way to hard. The average user doesn't want to jump thru hoops just to do their social networking. not only that, but EVERYONE is already on Facebook. Nobody wants to be apart of a social network if you cant be social and make a network.

DoTA 2!

Streaming all day live from GamesCom

For those of you who dont know Valve is currently hosting The International, a tournament show casing Dota 2 to the eSport community. The prize pool is well over 1.6m USD, with first prize being 1M USD. All the best DoTA players have been invited to GamesComm Germany to duke it out and show off Dota2 for the first time ever.

The game looks amazing so far. love the style and the smooth interface. The calming announcer and the spell casting noises sound good to me for some reason too. Anyways back to watching, might write an after tournament report.

Dragon Nest - My Experience and Semi review

Recently i picked up an MMO called Dragon Nest, which i never would have known existed, but my friend happened to mention it on vent and the way he described it got me interested. Firstly, what is Dragon Nest?

-Dragon Nest is a 3D Anime-Styled Action MMORPG. It is published by Nexon and currently in Open Beta for North America. Combat is over the shoulder, 3rd person action style where all skills must be aimed. The game is set in the world of Lemuria, where you adventure takes place. Dragon Nest Features 4 base classes, Warrior, Archer, Cleric, Sorceress, and 8 sub classes (2 sub classes per base class). -

Now, ive played MMO's on and off for quite a while (Ultima Online, EQ2, DAoC, AoC etc)  and usually i really HATE the anime style cartoony half cel-shaded half pixelated crap, but there is something about Dragon Nest that just makes me love it. First off let me say the combat is ALOT of fun. its really refreshing to have to aim your skills in a 3D environment. Smashing off combo's and whirling around in dungeons just hasn't gotten old yet (Current i play a warrior :3). Given, i have only played to level 10, but i have no intentions of stopping. Here's a comprehensive list of what i think is good about the game so far and what i think people might consider bad:

-Fast paced action oriented combat (This is what makes it unique and fun as fuck)
-4 classes, each branching out later into 2 separate sub-classes
-Each class has a unique play style
-Quests have depth and meaning, so it feels like a Traditional RPG
-Dungeons are fun and can be very challenging
-Dungeons are never the same, via the games random dungeon generation
-Combo system makes for flashy kills and twitch reactions
-Fleshed out guild system
-Free to Play
-Nexon promises nothing game breaking sold in cash shop

-Some might be turned off by the Anime Cartoony style
-Gold spammers. Lots of them. use low pop channels until the block feature is fully fleshed
-Open beta for another 3-4 weeks
-No PvP yet. Reported that it may come "Soon" or at the end of Open beta
-Run by Nexon (Some people have issues with them personally ive never dealt with them)
-HackShield (again some people have had issues with it)
-Classes genderlocked

Can't really think of any more bad things to list for it. My personal recommendation would be to give the game a shot, as you have nothing to lose (Free2Play) and if you dont like it its one click to remove it. If you do decide to play hit me up on Argenta (east) server, my addy is Vorbaine and Novain (probably more alts to come). In parting here is some PvP videos from the CN version (Cant fucking wait for PvP)

(From WCG 2011, id recommend turning the sound down the japs give me a headache)
(Top PvP'er Swordsman in China showing his sick combo's, he makes it look over powered)
(random SwordMaster pvp)

(Acrobat PvP. Sub class of Archer. Showing sick combo's. Skip to 0:40 for the fight to start)

What i think of the US

I would put this into all my own words, but i think Mr. carlin says it the best.
I think everything he says is spot on. I postulated this myself  many years ago but its good to see someone else who thinks the same exact thing talking about it. Our country is currently being pillaged and raped by these corporations. They have no interest in you or me, only their wallets. They plan to dissolve the middle class and separate the poor from the super rich even more.

Whats your opinion?
