Privatization of Pirate Control

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

We’re taking a break from the video game talk, and discussing a real-world issue…

The growing pirate problems facing shipping companies has become a major world-wide epidemic. Insurance companies are salivating, while ship crews are demanding steep increases in pay. The cost of fighting pirates will ultimately be passed on to everyone in the long run. Pirating is a real threat, and something must be done to contain it. I believe I have just the solution to drastically reduce pirating. Read on below to learn more.


The answer is creating a for profit industry known as “private pirate hunting” expeditions. That’s right folks… for a cool $50,000/person you and up to four of you’re buddies can book a 5-day, all inclusive expedition on the 75′ “Executioner”. The armored, high-powered yacht comes fully staffed, and she showcases twin 1100hp engines for superior speed and maneuverability.

Your all-inclusive trip includes daily hand-prepared meals by chef Marcalo Diem, top shelf alcohol, afternoon deep sea fishing and of course a full slate of pirate hunting (snorkeling and para sailing optional add-ons). You’ll receive sniping instructions from our on-board marksman team, and you’ll be able to choose from over 25 different weapons including three of the worlds top sniper rifles.

The excitement doesn’t end there. After you’ve had a chance to get your feet wet, you’ll be led on the “night hunt”. We’ll fire up the GPS, and you’ll put on the night vision goggles and head right into the heart of pirating zones. Night hunts are always a great way to keep the excitement going into the wee hours of the morning.

The above post was written as a fictional advertisement for a potential “Pirate Expedition” company. It is never exciting to take human life, but pirating is becoming a huge problem and drastic actions need to be taken to end pirating’s dangerous ramifications. If anyone can tell me that four to five “Executioners” patrolling the coasts of Somalia wouldn’t drastically decrease pirating, I’m all ears. Please post your opinions and ideas in the comments section below.

Online Dynasty Even Better in NCAA FB 10?…

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

A few days ago EA updated us on NCAA Football 10’s dynasty option. This feature allows a coach to create and manage a team preparing it for any match up despite the conference. Like last year, the player will be able to move teams amongst conferences and/or recreate their own conference; however, the new changes mainly focus on the recruiting aspect–especially the aspect of making it
This year coaches will have the ability to talk recruits into staying. There is also more emphasis placed on the promises that a player can be offered, such as granting that a player will start. The video also explains that if a coach does offer certain promises, there will be added pressure on the coach to follow through; otherwise, there will be consequences. There will also be a difference in recruiting off season versus in season. Some recruits, including five star recruits, will be held until the off season. (Last year, when the off season came, almost all the players had signed.) Lastly, we can anticipate the fine tuning of player’s stats, which will result in a more realistic outcome during play.

Who will be on the cover?

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Who do you think will be on the cover this year? Many people in cyberspace are thinking that EA will be returning to a single star for all platform covers. As usual, there is a good chance that a QB will be featured; however, it would be nice to have either a RB or a WR.
My top five predictions in no particular order:

  • 1)Texas Tech–Graham Harrell
  • 2)Florida–Percy Harvin
  • 3)Texas Tech–Michael Crabtree
  • 4)Iowa–Shonn Greene
  • 5)Georgia–Matthew Stafford

*Post your predictions in the comments! I look forward to hearing from everyone.
