It’s Frozenbreak’s Birthday! Wooooooooooooooooooooooot!
So JK Rowling’s been teasing us ALL week on youtube with a mysterious page filled with a countdown and abunch of virtual owls that grew and grew in flock size as the countdown came closer to it’s date. Today, her announcement has been revealed! Apparently her (along with the help of Sony) have designed a new website (www.pottermore.com) dedicated to give little extra tidbits and facts and possibly fancy cutout animations with instrumental music to go along with the story for readers to use while reading their Potter novels with the billions of fans around the world. “Pottermore is a free website that builds an exciting online experience around the reading of the Harry Potter books.”
Its funny because a few years back she meantioned she will make a Potter Encyclopedia that would explain all the little tids bits in the book as well as all the tidbits she never explained (for example: how a Horcrux is actually made). This website seems to be a combination of not only that wizarding world encyclopedia but what I hope is more of those fancy cutout illustrations that go along with the books. The site also seems to be a plugin to buy Harry Potter audio books, eBooks, and so forth. No clue yet about other Harry Potter merchandise but I get the feeling Rowling isnt about to try and sell us Mugs and “I love Hufflepuff” T-shirts (hell that’s what Potter Island is for in Orlando). Knowing her she’s going to keep this site to strictly educational and reading materials as she wants the joy of reading to be spread across the world. gotta love JK.
Finally, about 2 weeks after the initial release date was delayed the Pokemon Global Link / Dreamworld is finally online! Check it out and link your Pokemon Black and White games at: http://en.pokemon-gl.com/
Pokemon Dream World was scheduled for lauch on March 30, 2011 but due to the current Tsunami/Nuclear Disaster in Japan (which appears to be the main hosting server for the site), it will not be launched until further notice.
The official US dream world site (http://en.pokemon-gl.com/) had this to say: “The Pokemon Global Link was scheduled to lauch on March 30, 2011. As a result of the earthquake in Japan and the need to conserve energy resources the lauch date has been temporarily delayed. When a new launch date is determined, it will be published here on the Pokemon Global Link. We apologize sincerly for any inconvenience caused by this delay.”
Hopefully the crisis in Japan will be resolved soon. Our hearts go out to them.
Only 4 more days until our new journey begins..
Pokemon Black and White English Versions will be Released Sunday, March 6th 2011
Holy cow! For TvT here’s what has got to be one of the most exciting mirror matchup builds around.
This play style is all about using Terran units but playing them as Zerg instead!
My absolute favorite build – If HuK’s most well known Protoss build is the Mothership Rush, mine has to be the Banshee Rush when I play Terran.
The match has just barley started, you just started gaining enough tier 1 units to send out and begin battle with your opponent, you mobilize your units and to your surprise when their halfway across the map you hear “BASE IS UNDER ATTACK!”… your sitting there wondering – wtf? You zoom your map back to find that half of your mineral gathering workers have vanished and hovering above them 2 little banshees are wreaking havoc. You rush back to base to take them out and they vanish in midair! WTF?! Their cloaked?! The match just started about 5 minuites ago and your out of minerals and workers to mine them. Theirs nothing else you can do and your tier 1s are now getting picked off one by one as more bashees decide to join in on the fight. You’ve just been Banshee Rushed… GG?
