Naruto Theme Park Attraction!!!

The Laguna Gamagori Marine Resort Complex announced on Monday that it will host a “Naruto – Memories of Chakra in Lagunasia” theme park attraction from March 17 to September 2.

The event will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Naruto action television anime series and coincide with the resort’s own tenth anniversary.

The event’s main attraction will be “Memories of Chakra,” a recreation of the anime’s famous scenes from the time Naruto sets out on his ninja journey to the beginning of the Shinobi World War. The Lagunasia theme park’s nine areas will also include the “Hokage Monument,” “Konohagakure Village Ninjutsu Dojo,” “Hokage Palace,” and “Ninpoudo” shop where guests can enjoy a menu inspired by the anime and purchase exclusive promotional goods.

Every area of Lagunasia complex will be decorated with a Naruto motif, and visitors can experience all the displays and attractions by participating in the “Sharingan Stamp Rally.” Character shows will also take place during the event.

The complex is located in Gamagori City in the central Japanese prefecture of Aichi. Laguna Gamagori alreadyheld a “Mighty Atom Exhibition in Lagunasia” event from September to November 2009 and ran a “One Piece Memorial Log in Lagunasia” event from March to June 2010.

Madden Predicts Superbowl XLVI

For the last eight years, EA Sports has proudly fired up the current iteration of Madden, and simulated the Super Bowl to predict its winner, generally with favorable results. EA is proud to call their sports games some of the best simulators around, so it makes sense that they fire them up for the big events and pass on the results—whether it be the Super Bowl, the World Cup/Champions League Finals, or the Stanley Cup. Besides, if they didn’t do it officially, others would just do it unofficially anyway.

So far the game has been mostly right, picking correctly six out of the last eight times. So in keeping with tradition, the folks at EA fired up Madden 12 and pitted the New England Patriots against the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. It was close, but according to EA Sports and Madden 12, this year’s champions will be the New York Giants.

In the simulation, the Giants had control throughout, heading into halftime with a 17-10 lead. As the third quarter winded down, Manning–who the game later crowned the Super Bowl MVP–led the Giants on another drive, pushing the score to 24-10 before the final quarter began. But not to be denied, Tom Brady earned his paycheck and brought the Patriots back with two unanswered touchdowns to tie the game at 24. With under 2 minutes left, Manning drove downfield, setting up Lawrence Tynes for the game winning field goal as time expired. And the digital New Yorkers went digitally crazy. They may have even had a digital parade and met the digital President in the digital White House.

Gamer Etiquette- To Taunt or Not to Taunt?

After today’s Street Fighter IV session a question came to mind stemming from an incident that will go un-printed.

Is it okay to taunt while playing online?

Are you a trash talker or do you let your game speak for itself?

How do you feel when someone’s roasting you?

Have you ever gotten into a heated argument online due to excessive jawing?

Leave a reply and lets see how you online gamers feel.
