The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is scheduled to release on December 14th of this new year. Peter Jackson agreed to the role of directing this film. Key actors from the epic trilogy like Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, and Ian Mckellen also appear in this prequel. For those unfamiliar with The Hobbit, as mentioned this is the account of how the events of the Lord of the Rings series came to be.

An Unexpected Journey is going to be the first of two installments of this epic genesis. The Hobbit: There and Back Again will pick up where Journey left off. Christmas season of 2013 is when the second film is due to release.

It was quite shocking to learn that Taylor Swift is going to be a part of the original motion picture soundtrack, but then again they do need amazing artist to assist the hopefully amazing movies that they have made to accompany the fans of the book series. As of now no other news about the soundtrack has been released, but you can buy this song on iTunes now! The new question that remains is who else will be on the whole oficial soundtrack once it is released? That is a question that only Lionsgate, and time can answer!

Cannon PowerShot ELPH 300HS

Looking for a good camera to buy as a gift for someone? We can’t help you with that, what we can do is help you find an amazing camera! It may be for you, a gift, or whatever, but this camera is quite impressive! I have used this camera for about five months now and I honestly have to admit that the quality is second to none and the video shooting is true HD meaning that it seriously looks great! I bought this camera because I needed a good camera to make YouTube videos with and it helps that it is not only a superb camera but also a very impressive video camera!

There are three colors in the 300HS version, and I went with red. When you see a red camera it is unmistakable that it is a Cannon PowerShot! The color is vibrant and the texture is perfect for holding. The only complaint that I have is my Micro SDHC memory card is sometimes not readable, but this is easily fixed by turning the camera off then back on. I am almost certain that this is due to the memory card itself and not the camera, either way it is a small price to pay for the quality that this camera outputs! Oh, and just in case you are wondering, this is the camera that many YouTubers use such as CTFxC and other prominent video bloggers (for those of you interested in making YouTube videos).

Arrested Development Returns As Netflix Exclusive

The much loved comedy, Arrested Development, has taken a leave of absence after it’s previous cancelation. For years fans of the short lived series hoped and rumored a return for the Bluth Family. It has been officially announced in a press release that Arrested Development will be making it’s return to your home sometimes in early 2013. The only new quirk about the show is that it will only be available as a Netflix exclusive. Netflix has been pondering over exclusive content for some time now and has even begun filming a few series that only they will have, but this has come as a surprise to most everyone. While some fans rejoice, others fear that Netflix will be stingy with the rights to the show and deter the newly planned season from ever seeing DVD format. The future of the show is still under wraps, and not much more has been announced in regards to the new season or if Netflix will allow it to be sold as a DVD after it debutes, but one thing is for sure, this could mean many more new subscribers for Netflix, just for the return of Arrested Development!

Should You Buy Minecraft?

Minecraft developer Marcus Persson and a couple people from TigSource are the core people behind this cheaply made indie game. Developer Persson quit his job as a game developer to make indie games and this was what came out of it. This game has a vast amount of open space and is one of the most unique games I have played. Not like most games Minecraft’s main objective is to create and design your own home and create unique places and fight off enemies. This game is still in Beta so it isn’t fully finished but for game not fully finished it is really good.

The creative style of the game is the most terrific part because you’re able to make environments that are straight from your imagination. You can create villages your own city, caves, and I have even seen people build huge towers just to blow them up. This game is just to show off your imagination and create your own world to adventure through. The game in my mind could be a little better and allow you to have people everywhere and be able to not just be a lone on this world.

Still the game is in BETA and won’t be done for a few years, it has been in the process since 2010. Many people would agree that a game that is perfected turns out to be perfect. Many games have been half done and know one wants to play them, a game takes every little detail into consideration. A great game isn’t just a story or how many things you can kill, it’s about what is fun. I consider Minecraft extremely fun and addictive, I don’t know what it is about this game that makes me want to pick it up every time. I give this game a high replay value and a great time consumer. You can go to the main website and start playing now buy purchasing the game or trying out the classic version, for free. So go out and enjoy the world of Minecraft.
