Mafia 2 Game Trailer

Will Mafia 2 be as good as the first?

I’m thinking its going to be way better. I really am looking forward to this game for sure.

Some of you may not know this, but I formerly worked at TalonSoft / Take 2 / Gathering of Developers.  I was the Webmaster for Gathering here in the USA.  I designed and programmed the original Mafia PC website.  During this time, I also had the change to see the testing going for Mafia. I was very interested, but didn’t have much time to play it. I wanted to wait until the game launched to really enjoy the finished piece.  I played for 2 weeks straight every day after work. I thought the game was great. The graphics, acting, storyline—all were fantastic. During the day at work I would be manning those forums assisting folks stuck on the infamous racing mission. My first impression was I felt I was living in that time.  I am also a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. In some ways, I enjoyed Mafia linear storyline vs. GTA open storyline. In my opinion, having a nice, linear storyline is better if telling a story (like a movie) is important to you. I think Mafia definitely delivered in this area.

Here we are in 2010, I’ve moved on from the game business for the most part (I still play the hell out of them!) and I’m seeing information about the sequal to Mafia.  Check out this trailer for this game…Be impressed!

In a few days, I’ll post some gameplay trailers.  (If you can’t wait, then run over to YouTube and search for Mafia 2 Gameplay Trailers.)

The Passenger by Chris Jones

I came along this really cool short film on YouTube after reading an article from the NewTek newsletter. You can visit Chris Jones' website at

He used Lightwave v6.5 to do most of this video. It's very cool. I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Avatar the movie - Best movie ever made?

If you haven’t seen Avatar yet, go see it now. Probably one of the best movies ever made. James Cameron hits another home run. The man is a genius.

So what makes Avatar such an awesome movie. 1. Excellent visuals. The entire world is 100% believable.  The plants, the animals, The People. 2. The story is amazing. Brilliant writing + brilliant effects = Capital A AWESOME movie. 3. The movie is long, I think its close to 3hrs. But believe me, you won’t mind. Its never dull.  4. Did I mention that it was in 3D? wow, i remember when i was a kid and we have 3D movies that were in “black and white” and you had to wear those funny red lense, blue lense cardboard glasses. This is a huge step up from that. Imagine, the absolute very best special effects with the very best 3D?  This was an amazing movie. Its one that you have to see in the theatres too—Blu-ray will be better and DVD won’t do it justice. See it in the theatres dammit!  So, I spent 3hrs of my life on sunday just saying the word “Wow!” every 5 minutes. That’s how good it is.

Fans of the special effects used in the movie Beowolf will be quite pleased.  Its not the same effect, but definitely along the same lines.  You will not believe your eyes.

Question of the day

MYCFMX - IF MYCFMX were an acronym, what would it stand for?

Here’s the criteria:

- It must describe this website.
- It must not be vulgar.
- Feel free to get creative. All of the letters don’t have to be part of the acronym. You can use the “MY” to make the word “My” and then make up words for the other letters.
- “X” - the letter “X” is proving to be pretty difficult to come up with a word. So, feel free to choose that has “X” in it like “expensive, expression, exhausted, extreme” and so on.

Leave you comments below.  The name will be featured on this website.

The name used to stand for “My ColdfusionMX” - But now the site is not in Coldfusion and they don’t use the MX extension anymore. They are also now on Coldfusion9. ColdfusionMX refers to an earlier version (I think version 6 or 7).

Merry Christmas a week late…

A couple of weeks ago the east coast got slammed with a rather large snow storm.  I think we got 20 inches in my state.  Wow, i think in my life that is the most snow I have ever seen all at once.

So that weekend we had tickets to go see a Christmas show. The show was cancelled and postoned to Jan 2nd, 2010. So, my family, my girlfriend and I went and saw the show. Damn, it was great!  I felt like it was Christmas all over again. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays.  We saw White Christmas at a dinner theatre. An excellent show. The singing was great, the performers were top notch. In case you don’t know how dinner theatre works, it goes something like this.  All of the actors/acrtress are also your waiters / waitresses.  So, you first sit down and get to eat a nice salad if you so choose. Your waiter comes around and serves the drinks. The food is served buffet style. Your waiter, also being an entertainer, is very lively and extra friendly. It makes for a great atmosphere and something you pretty much can’t get anywhere.  The food part lasts about 2 hours and then the lights go down and the show begins.  The show was fantastic. I’d give it a 5 out 5 stars. The first part of the show was about 1.5hrs long and there was a brief intermission. During the intermission, the actors / waiters come around and serve drinks again. Can you imagine doing that? These guys don’t get a break for 4 hours they are really bustin ass. Running to get drinks, doing a show and then running to get more drinks. These people work extra hard.

The evening started around 6pm and we made it home by 11pm. It was a great night and it was extra awesome to share it with the wonderful people I was fortunate enough to go with.

Is it wrong to have a site about Coldfusion written in PHP?

A most perplexing question for a web developer…

I’m just curious what you all think. Originally my website was written in PHP. In order to learn Coldfusion, I reprogrammed my website in Coldfusion. Alas, I have become close to an expert with Expression Engine CMS (it is awesome…check it out  I am using the EE Core v1.6.8 which is the free version of Expression Engine (aka EE).  It is free as long as its for non-commercial use.  So, is it wrong to change my Coldfusion website from Coldfusion to PHP? Leave your comments.

I’ve used the full version of EE before and well it is amazing - the best and most flexible CMS out there. Alot of people I work with like to compare EE to Wordpress, but really it is wrong to compare the two, they really belong in different categories.  Wordpress is a very powerful free blogging platform, its open source, its written in PHP and connects to a MySQL database.

EE is an extremely powerful and very affordable full featured content management system, its open source, it is written in PHP, and it connects to a mySQL database.  EE has a very robust blogging platform in it as well. But thats where the similarity ends.  The next post will go on to explain why EE is so great.  IF you have not tried it yet, get off your ass and try it!
