Strategy Game in Real Time.

Hi guys, today i'll share with you this amazing video game called "Age Of Mythology" (AoM).
It was released in 2002 by Microsoft Games and Ensemble Studios.

Even though it's similar to Age of Empires, this game has 3D graphics and is based on the Egyptian's, Greek's and Nordic's Mythology and Legends.


Age of Mythology transports players to a time when heroes battled legendary monsters and the gods intervened in the affairs of mortals.

In Age of Mythology, players wage war using armies and diplomacy, they progress through the ages, improve the functioning of the economy and the military through trade and the accumulation of resources. Mythology enters the stage when players invoke the gods to put your hand or reinforce their armies with more than 20 mythological creatures.

  1. A PC with a processor equivalent to 450 or higher
  2. 128 MB of system RAM
  3. 1.5 GB of free space on hard drive
  4. A CD-ROM 32x minimum speed
  5. You need a video card 16 MB
  6. For audio you need a sound card, speakers or headphones
  7. Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
  8. A 56.6 or higher modem for online play
So, I really recommend it, and also the expansion: "The TITANS"

Hope you enjoy it as much as i do :)

The constant gardener.

Today I have another Love movie, mixed with Everyday reality: "The Constant Gardener".

In a remote place in the North of Kenya, the most passionate activist of the zone is brutally killed, the brillant Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz). A local doctor who used to go along with her escaped and everything seems to be like a crime of passion. Sandy Woodrow (Danny Huston), Sir Bernard Pellegrin (Bill nighy) and all the other members of the High Britain Comissioner are convinced that Tessa's widower, the quiet and unambitious Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the case on their hands but they are wrong. The diplomatic's balance has tilted when he lost the woman that he loved so much. Both human beings, so opposite, where attracted mutually and enjoyed a happy marriage. The memories of that union, pushed Justin to take a decision for the first time in his personal and professional life. Haunted by remorses, and hurt by the rumors of alleged infidelities of his wife, Justin susprises himself by jumping on a dangerous odissey. He decides to clean his wife's name....

Classic songs used for official Soundtracks.

Hey guys, today's post is about those classic songs from the 70's, 80's and 90's that
have first became classics and then were used for some movies as the original soundtrack...
I'm sure you have already listened them so I will explain the way they appear in the movies,
and of course, i'll share with you the link of the video in youtube :)

The first two songs ("Baby come back" by Player, "Drive" by The Cars) appear in the movie
Transformers 1, in the same scene. The first song was released in 1977, while the second one
was released in 1984.
The movie shows at that time that Megan Fox, tries to
escape from the boy's car (who is a transformer that talks using the radio) and in the
moment that she's trying to left the car, the radio is switched on by Bumblebee (The robot)
and plays the first song, Baby come back, and as the girl is still trying to escape,
Bumblebee turns the radio station to one where both actors listened "Drive". It's such a
funny scene because of the boy's face lol

so, here's the link of the scenes...
Baby come back scene
Drive scene

and here's the link of both videos:
Baby Come Back

The third song is "Linger" by The Cranberries, released in 1993. What a beautiful song!
It appears in Click, the movie, in 2 scenes. The first one is when Adam Sandler is with his
girlfriend in a bar. Both are young and are only boyfriends. This scene is so romantic!
He writes her a note in a napkin that says "Will you still love me in the
morning?" and she answers him in the same note "Forever".
The second time that this song appears in the movie, is when Adam Sandler is in his son's
marriage party. The band that was playing in the place playes that song, and he asks his
ex- wive to dance with him , like in the old times... That part of the movie is kind of sad...

I haven't found a vid of both scenes , but i have here for you the official video of the song:


The fourth song and the last is "I don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith. This song is part
of the soundtrack of Armaggedon, and was released in 1998.
From this song, I couldn't found the scene's vid, but of course that i'llbring you the
official video link:

I don't want to miss a thing

Appart from this, i'll share with you a BONUS.
Two more songs that are real classics of all times: Here are the links, so enjoy!

Wind of change

Thank you for loving me

I hope you enjoy the post with the songs I've prepared for you... =)

Oh guys, i found the "CLICK" scenes!!

Strategic action game.

After one of the sappiest posts i've ever done, now, i'm sharing with u this amazing game...

Rakion (Chaos Force)

As the title says, this is an strategic action game where you can reach the victory by fighting and setting up an effective stategy. It's a fantasy game, and you have to choose between 5 different type of characters (Mage, Archer, Swordsman, Blacksmith, Ninja), that will represent you in the game. Your character will gain experience in every battle, which will help you to raise his/her level. The game also has 4 different battle modes: Golem War, Death Match (Team), Death Match (Solo), Boss mode. In adittion to this, you can also have creatures, that will help you during the battles, and will also gain experience every time you call upon them.
In order to play this game, you have to create an account. Here's the link for the membership registration. It's TOTALLY FREE, as the game!!! Below this introduction, i'll start explaining this features with details.


Rakion is on-line ‘strategy action game' The game focuses on intense sword on sword battles with RPG style characters and settings, along with the strategic battle plans to provide the ultimate battle experience.
Like any good console games, Rakion delivers video game quality action. You can now experience the palm sweating battles of console games online. Gamers can improve their combat skills and work out several strategies to win the battle alone as a team. Just like a MMORPG, the concept of gaining experience points and leveling up exists in Rakion as well. Through the level-up system, you can upgrade your character’s skills and equipment as well as your summons. Summoned creatures will become much stronger as you level up.

The object of 'Rakion: Chaos Force' is to offer you the sensation of thrill and intensity of going into a battle to face your enemy. After standing face to face with your enemy you will first-handedly experience the intensity, and all of a sudden, you will find yourself engaging into a battle with your enemy with strong bash attacks and combinations. Like other combat action games have, Rakion focuses on the simple rule of combat games. Special attack can inflict more damage but has a longer delay time. By knowing this you will feel a great deal of pleasure by taking advantage of other's weak point with big blows. Rakion also provides guard and catch techniques. Using various combinations, you can utilize strong catch attacks that will spin your enemy into the air giving you the opportunity to smash the enemy with your hammer. Also many different catch skills are provided in the game for you to use.

Armor Breaking
As you smash your opponents, their armor will break off bit by bit or blow up upon the impact. The broken armor parts will then become an aerial projectile which hit the wall and bounce off.
The impact of the attacks on the enemy is one thing Rakion differs entirely from other action games.

Cell System
Simple combat action is not what Rakion desires. Rakion isn't just a combat game; it involves very complex strategies which turn the tides of the battle. Cell-system would be one of the ways.
Gamer can summon their creatures using CP (Cell Point) which you get through battle or by winning the game. Creatures will be a big support to you and your team, and can sometimes be used to distract your enemies. Everycreature has different specialties. Size of these creatures varies from very tiny to enormous.
The creatures summoned by the teams will engage in an enormous battle, and you will able to learn what a true full-scale combat is about.
Chaos System
When gamers meet a critical situation, one can change itself into a powerful creature. It doesn't last long, but you can have enough power to change the course of the battle.
'Chaos System' is built to provide the greatest enjoyment in playing this action game. Get into a Chaos mode where many enemies are populated and become a creature of unlimited power.

Equipment System
There is more than ArmorPoint and HitPoint in Rakion.
There are 10 abilities you can upgrade your character with, as character grows. Also players can combine specific items to maximize, the desired, ability of character. Armor, Weapon, Rings and Amulets items are available.

Level Up
Rakion is an on-line game that is based on intense action and tactics. And it also provides subtle pleasure of RPG game.
Other than your character, creatures also evolve. Gamer can upgrade their creatures to the way they want to be.

Game rule & Map design
It's not fun to just play combat action games for two or three months, so Rakion provides varieties of ways to enjoy your game. Two of them are unique game rule and map designs that lead to strategic game playing.
The tides of battle situation can be reversed every time depending on the strategy of both teams. The objective of victory on Rakion is not just annihilating the enemy or destroying specific target.
To gain the final victory, the gamers need two or three phases, a great teamwork and know-how to grasp the situation to judge one's course to either go offensive or defensive. These unique game rules are easy but they also make gamers work out thoughtful strategies.


Swordsman: Swords man is the core in the battle and the strongest man at close quarter combat. Nobody can find his weak point at the battle if he is yielding a sharpened sword and equipping a firm armor. There are two types of swords man. One is disciplining himself to improve his skills and the other is combat with creature, using the Cell Points. He is brave enough to be the leader at any battle. FEATURES: Swords man is well balanced both offensively and defensively. You can lead the battle easily if you read enemy's movement. He is a standard type of character and adequate for beginners.But he is weak in long range and anti air attack by creature.

Archer: In early times, archers formed as a group and had a role in long range attacks. But after creatures appeared, they accustomed to do more of approaching attacks. They equip middle size sword because of their light weight. FEATURES: Archer is woman class who uses bow as a main weapon. She takes part in long ranged attacks and they are also adequate for close quarter battles.She is really good at long range, anti-sky attack and backing up team. But she is usually weak at approaching attack. It depends of course. Some archers are more powerful than sword men.
Blacksmith: Blacksmiths used to make armors and weapons until the time of the cell arrived. Now they try to collect and trim the cell as much as they can. They are a little bit slow but they are the strongest class in this game. The blacksmiths are accustomed at killing creatures and collecting cells, so they are not afraid of the creature that roams in the battle field. FEATURES: Blacksmith is a good character of good strength and strong power. This class is type of approaching attacker and best adequate for close battles. His hammer attack takes more delay time but it gives the strongest damage to the enemy.He is going to be a creature killer.

Mage (My fav): Mages think that the world is a struggling place for mages since the cells are introduced. People use cell frequently rather than Magic because of Its easiness. They specialized in the magic against the cell. They are backing-up combat style mages. They are more skilled at defending themselves rather than giving damage to your enemy. They can weaken your enemy and make your creature stronger at same time. FEATURES: It's impossible for mage to fight alone. But when they are working with other classes as a team, the situation will be reversed. They have healing magic and powerful long ranged magic attacks that is enough to support your team.
Ninja: Ninja is a female assassin. She can approach the enemy quickly but silently. She is dispatched to continent to discover the secret of the cell. FEATURES: Ninja is the quickest character in this game. She can jump the highest and change weapons very quickly. But weak strength makes her hard to blow away enemy's armors and she will not be shown on radar when throwing a dagger.

Friendship song.

Today's post is about friendship.
It's one of the most beautiful feelings when you know you have a friend there, to be with you every moment, in the hard times and in the good ones.
So, here's a song from this Punk band from Argentina, called "Attaque 77" that refers to the importance of a friend for a person.
Do never forget to tell your friends how important they are for you, and support them every time of your life, 'cause they 'll do the same for you.
Tonight's questions are:
What does "Friendship" mean for you? How important are your friends in your life? Who's your best friend? How did you get to know him?

Here is the lyric of the song "Amigo" by "Attaque 77" in both spanish and english:

Tu eres mi hermano del alma, realmente el amigo
Que en todo camino y por nada esta siempre conmigo
Aunque eres un hombre aun tienes el alma de un niño
Aquel que me da su amistad su respeto y cariño
Recuerdo que juntos pasamos muy duros momentos
Y tu no cambiaste por fuertes que fueran los vientos
Es tu corazón una casa de puertas abiertas
Tu eres realmente el mas cierto en horas inciertas.

En ciertos momentos difíciles que hay en la vida
Buscamos a quien nos ayude a encontrar la salida
Y aquella palabra de fuerza y de fe que me has dado
Me da la certeza que siempre estuviste a mi lado.
Tu eres mi amigo del alma en toda jornada
Sonrisa y abrazo festivo a cada llegada
Me dices verdades tan grandes con frases abiertas
Tu eres realmente el mas cierto en horas inciertas.

No preciso ni decir todo esto que te digo
Pero es bueno así sentir, que eres tu mi gran amigo


You are my soul brother,
actually the friend
That in every way
and nothing is always with me
Even if you are a man
still have the soul of a child
Anyone giving me their friendship
their respect and affection.

Remember together
We had a hard time
And you did not change
by strong winds that were
Is your heart
open house
you're actually more true
in uncertain hours.

At certain times
difficult thing in life
We who
help us find the exit
And those words of power
and faith that have given me
I'm sure
that you were always by my side.

You are my soul mate
throughout day
Smile and hug holiday
at each arrival
You tell me such great truths
with open sentences
You are truly the true
in uncertain hours
No need to say no
I say this
But it's good and feel,
who are you my dear friend.

And, as always, here's the link to the song video :)

Love history.

Today i'll share with you my fav movie... Eternal sunshine of a spotless mind.

A woman (Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet)), uses the services of a company to erase her ex-couple from her mind. Hurt because of that, the man (Joel Barish (Jim Carrey)) tries to do the same she did, but the process does not responds as expected, so he has to break trough the giant tide of memories from his own brain to reset things.

  • Jim Carrey
  • Kate Winslet
  • Kirten Dunst
  • Mark Ruffalo
  • Tom Wilkinson
  • Elijah Wood
My own review:
It's a weird history, that in my opinion, shows what a person can make just to forget his/her couple. It's hard to understand the plot when you have only seen it one time, but if you look the details, you 'll be able to understand it without problem.
My own life experiences made me understand that the best way to forget an ex is going on with life. World does not ends when you finish with your couple, and even though it's REALLY difficult to carry on, it's not impossible. It's hard but not impossible...
So... Would you make such a thing just to forget someone?

If u 've seen the movie, tell us what do you think about it, and if you like it...
If u haven't, then enjoy it, it's amazing.

PD: Here's my favourite song from the movie soundtrack :) !
