Google’s April Fools, Starcraft 2, The New Relics

Apr 02

Google, April Fools!

How many people got caught by Google’s April fools joke this year?

“Virgle: Earth has issues, and it’s time humanity got started on a Plan B. So, starting in 2014, Virgin founder Richard Branson and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will be leading hundreds of users on one of the grandest adventures in human history: Project Virgle, the first permanent human colony on Mars.”

I managed to get Mary, COO at Moguldom, to fall for it. Hehehe! Everybody else was on to my scheme though, oh well! I love Google.

Starcraft 2

I was practically born on the original Starcraft and Brood Wars expansion. I spent much of my teenage life perfecting the Zerg rush, and eventually mastered the Terran defense with a wonderful firebat-drop counter attack. So I was quite excited yesterday when Dan sent me a link to the new units in Starcraft 2. I like what I see. At the very bottom of the Tauren Marine page there seems to be a spoiler hint, though I can’t be certain. Will mercenaries be apart of the new game?

So many questions! Though, I’m glad it’s still at least a year away from release, as I have a lot of business plans to knock out beforehand! It’d be a shame to make a mistake and drown all the potential in a video game. Though, it’s not just any video game, Starcraft 2 looks to be the nectar of the gods IMHO.

The New Relics – one rock’n band!

Aside of Google’s games and video games, everybody go check out The New Relics. They are a Morgantown, WV based band, and they pretty much rock. I saw them a few times when I lived out in Morgantown, they are touring up and down the east coast these days. I’m on a mission to hook them up with a Venue in Shepherdstown so they have an excuse to come play for me. I’ll be posting MySpace bulletins, and what not, if it pans out, so you locals better show up!
