This just in (Or not) – Madden 2012 predicts Giants beating the Patriots

 

 

That’s right people, the bowl to ends all bowls starts tomorrow (this one just creeped up this year), and for eight years now EA’s Madden series has been used as the official NFL super bowl simulator trying to predict the winner. This year the Giants squish the Patriots in a near victory of 27 to 24. Now I’m not saying it’s perfect, but being right 6 out of 8 times does boast good odds. We’ll see tomorrow.

 

 

Update 2/7/12: Madden was right, not the man but the game. While it wasn’t completely accurate the main point is that it predicted the winning team which was the Giants (congrats by the by). Now if the game would predict the winning lotto numbers – or at least the powerball.

 

 

 

Characters of Color – Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo

 

 

Next up Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, and yes that’s his name and the name of his series. Right, trying to explain what the series is and his part in it, is like trying to have the Joker do your taxes – but I’ll try. Here goes: Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, Bo-bobo to his friends, is a man with a solid gold afro, who uses a very long, living (but retractable) nose hair to fight the evil Margarita Empire (I still prefer the Chrome Dome Empire – thanks Cartoon Network) from removing hair from the world. His allies are two children (one with an extreme case of gas), an attention glutton who looks like the sun, a dude made of Jello, and a guy who has pink poo for a head.  Together they fight with an array of abilities and powers similar to DBZ if you were drunk, high, and spanned in a circle for nine years. Now if you’re asking why any of this insanity makes Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo worthy enough to highlight, then you’ve new to Armada & you got a lot of reading to do.

 

 

 

 

 

Characters of Color – Dee Jay

 

Once again its February people and for those who aren’t in the throes of passion, its Black History Month. For the Armada that means a whole month of us highlighting the great black characters in games and animation. We start with everyone’s favorite smiling street fighter: Dee Jay. Hailing from the islanded paradise of Jamaica; Dee Jay is an extremely skilled kickboxer who not only defeated Adon and Sagat during his tournament runs, and fended off a Psycho Driven M.Bison, but managed to get a sweet record deal and became a musical pop star. DJ is also great because he was the only American made character for the Street Fighter series. Add to the fact that he has the most versatile fighting style for charge characters in the series what do you got: a pretty awesome character of color who will beat you down and smile while doing it.
