COMPLETELY WASTED OPPORTUNITY 12/16

41st BLOG POST GO TEAM

     Our 40th blog post was pretty cool, even though I probably could have put in more stuff.

YEAR END SPECIAL UNDERWAY

     I have started working on the year end special, pretty sweet if I do say so myself. Before that video comes out, we may as well look at the YEAR IN REVIEW: Fraction's Fandoms begun, Animated Seasons 2 and 3, Addictive Gaming launched, we began having HQ uploads, Luke, Rebel, King, and Cutter officially joined this year, we hit 2000 channel views, and we got 70+ subscribers. 

SECRET PROJECT NEWS

     We haven't talked about the secret project for about half a year now, and all I can say is this- ALL THE SCRIPTS ARE FINISHED SOUND TRACK IS FINISHED (ALL ORIGINAL, COMPOSED BY ME) AND FIRESTARTER IS A STINGY BUTT HOLE WHO WON'T LET ME TALK ABOUT IT. I will release this info though, 2015 is definitely the year it will premiere. We've been through 4 years of this crap. YEAR 1: Couldn't see each other YEAR 2: Didn't have the props YEAR 3: Had no location YEAR 4 (THIS YEAR): Everything got rained out! It stormed the entire time we had to film! I think that Firestarter and I will do a live Google Hangout when we do premiere it.

FRISBEE FUN

     Apparently our live-action stuff is well received, so me and Crazy went really stupid and recorded this stupid video called "Frisbee Fun." I try to be somewhat serious in recordings, but my freak flag flew this video. I don't know what happened but I went out of control. It's pretty fun though.

THE END -Love Fraction

WOHOHOH

SWEDEN I SEE? FRANCE? UK?

     We apparently have like, a few viewers from different countries. FREAKING SWEET! Hey friends! Can you read this page! Does it change languages!? Who cares, I love you guys!

VALVE PULLS HATRED OFF STEAM GREENLIGHT UPDATE: IT'S BACK UP

THE CONTROVERSIAL GAME HATRED HAS BEEN PULLED OFF OF STEAM GREENLIGHT. UPDATE: IT IS BACK UP

     Steam Greenlight is the home of many developing games, and is an easy way to get your game known. Hatred was put on Greenlight not long ago, but Valve's Doug Lombardi says that they will be taking it down. Why would Hatred get pulled off Steam Greenlight, but not other violent games like Far Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto, and Postal? Not much is known about why it was taken down, although it seems the game was just too violent. Hatred was developed by Destructive Creations and was set to release in Q2 of 2015. Destructive Creations is obviously not shaken since they seem to be using the "gain popularity through controversy" strategy to gain recognition. Hatred could have been a good game. Hatred could have been a terrible game, yet society won't give it a chance. We hope that Hatred will resurface on another publisher, and trust us, it will, but the real question is this: what does this mean for Steam? Will game developers be discouraged by seeing a game taken down and be in fear for their own? Is Steam itself going for the "gain popularity by controversy" strategy as well? Many websites are talking about Hatred, so it won't be hard to find information regarding this game. Hatred is currently trending, so trying to take away popularity by removing the game has obviously failed to work.

NEW CHANNEL LAUNCH (12/13)

WE WILL BE LAUNCHING A NEW CHANNEL SOON

     During Christmas, along with the return of NEWS, we will be launching a new channel that will be strictly news. It will feature audio versions of the blog, NEWS, vlogs, and weekly broadcasts of live news (or NEWS). We are very excited about launching another channel, since we've only had the hub channel. The news will not only be from me, but also from the rest of our cast and crew. Thank you all so much for being along on this ride, and there is much in store for the new year!

LAPD Shooting at Corner of Hollywood and Highland (12/5) and the Killing of Rumain Brisbon by Arizona Police (12/2)

MAN ALLEGEDLY ARMED WITH KNIFE SHOT 5-6 TIMES AND KILLED AT CORNER OF HOLLYWOOD AND HIGHLAND (12/5)

Tweeted by Lisa Bregman 12/5 at 8:58 PM 
     Last night (December 5) a white male was shot down in the middle of a crosswalk.  In a tweet by Lisa Bregman, she witnessed the shooting and caught a photo of the aftermath. We are trying to get an interview or eye-witness account from Lisa but she has yet to respond. Another witness, Jordan White, says that the man was unarmed. This goes against the police reports saying that he had a knife.  No identities have been released yet.
Picture by Jordan White 12/5 at 9:01 PM, currently has 28,000 Retweets and 10,000+ Favorites.                            

NOT ONLY THIS, BUT RUMAIN BRISBON (FATHER OF 4 DAUGHTERS) WAS SHOT AND KILLED ON TUESDAY (12/2) BY ARIZONA POLICE

     A black male, Rumain Brisbon, was shot and killed after Arizona Police mistook his pill bottle for a handgun. The officer and Brisbon ran into a building after Brisbon ran away from the officer after exiting his car to look for something in the trunk. The officer took off after Brisbon and the fight could be heard from residents of the apartment building. Brisbon was shot after the officer thought he was going to pull a gun out in front of two kids. Brisbon was shot in the back two times and the officer walked away. The identity of the officer has not been identified. One of Brisbon's daughters, 9- year-old Aiyana, sent a heart-breaking letter to the officer that states, "He's not going to be here to see the happiness of us and the sad. He not going to see his little girls grow up. Why did you have to shot him two times in the back?"

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR AN AVERAGE JOE?

     If you are not concerned about why the police are killing people, not to mention TWO PEOPLE WITHIN LESS THAN A WEEK APART there is something seriously wrong with you. There are of course, two points of view from this story, but either way you spin it, something wrong has happened. As said by Ann Hart, the chairwoman of the African American Police Advisory Board for South Phoenix, "We need to take a deeper dive into why police officers are feeling compelled to shoot and kill as opposed to apprehend and detain, arrest and jail." The amount of force being used by police when there are many safer alternatives is so disturbing to the public eye.

XBOX LIVE DDOS ATTACK SPECULATION

LAST NIGHT, XBOX LIVE AND THE XBOX WEBSITE WENT DOWN WITHOUT ANY NOTICE

     Cutter and I were enjoying a nice game of Madden 15 on the Xbox One until we both got disconnected. Everything was connected to the internet, and we restarted our internet as well just to make sure. After about an hour of trying, we just gave up and thought that it may have been down for maintenance. Cutter went to the internet and said- "People everywhere are saying it's down. Someone said Xbox got hacked." I told him that that probably wasn't the case, and we just gave up and went to bed. Before I fell asleep though, I came across some interesting things.

LIZARD SQUAD, A DDOS ATTACK TEAM

     Lizard Squad took the credit for why XBL was down, and even went as for to say this is just a "dose" of what is going to come on Christmas. Not only that, but you can see from their second tweet, it seems that they are taking the credit from the SONY leak of 5 digital movies (Annie, Fury, Still Alice, Mr. Turner, and To Write Love on Her Arms) and have left the company using fax machines and chalkboards to work out finances. BUT THIS ISN'T THEIR FIRST ATTACK
Earlier this summer, they attacked XBL, PSN, League of Legends, and Battle.net! They then targeted Twitch and placed a BOMB THREAT to ground a Sony executive's flight! Hopefully they will be stopped sooner or later, and players will not have to play offline this Holiday Season.
