we here at the ace 4 decided that with all of this debates over hot topics like abortion, offshore drilling, and the problems of the world in general, can eaisily be solved. so we decided to make a little segment called “Problem Solved”. 

now were not saying that your right or wrong. were not saying that you have to listen to us and obey us like some dictators (but it would be cool). we are just saying that whatever the problem may be, we have an idea of how to fix it. so dont get mad if you disagree with us, instead, debate your issue as a comment and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

now, todays topic is one that has had america debating for a couple of years. let me give you a hint, it involves a fetus, vacuum, and much blood. ABORTION.

the way i see it, guys should not even care about this topic given the fact that they cant give birth, and that should have girls up in flames. i mean, shouldnt it be up to the women to decide if giving up a baby is wrong or right? shouldnt guys be more interested in weather there will be a playoff in college football? i sure think so (last years championship could have eaisily been LSU-UGA or UGA-MIZZU).

the second thing that really pisses me off is that people say how wrong it is for a woman to have an abortion and why we should not let them have one. well maybe if women in general would stop going out in public wearing little to nothing and taunting guys with their bodies and basicity saying “yeah, i want to get screwed”, (not that anythings wrong with that 😉 ) then maybe the female wouldnt find herself pregnant. i mean, it takes two to have a baby. maybe you could stop getting screwed. or maybe you could learn how to defend yourself from rapist by carring a gun on your person.

the third problem i have with this whole issue is that people over-react about this whole issue. if you make abortion illeagle, then we are going to have an overpopulated america, more people in poverty, and possibly less strippers :(. but if abortion is leagleized (self choice) then all you have to do is say “no. i dont want one” or “yes. i need one”. its that simple. if you dont like it, dont get one. if you need one. get one. no more arguing over “well its still a child”. no more guys protesting something they have no power over. just a simple yes or no. 

geeez people. think. 



*****NOTICE***** i hate killing as much as the next person, but an embryo. basicity an egg and a single sperm. theres no way  you can defend that.

A Zimbabwean man holds new 500-million-dollar notes

Zimbabwe, dealing with a record 2.2 MILLION percent inflation, has introduced a new 100-billion-dollar note that will go into circulation July 21 joining about a half dozen high denomination notes including 100 million, 5 billion, and 25-billion-dollar notes. The south African country has been undergoing hyperinflation whcih has shot up from 165,000 percent in February to 2.2 million in May. Independent economists say that this percentage is grossly understated, saying that it is estimated more around 10 to 15 million percent, either way, that’s still bad. Zimbabwe’s accustomed economic crisis has left at least 80 percent of the population living below the poverty threshold and mass shortages of basic goods in shops. 


Gears of War Movie??? Leaked Plot

19 07 2008

possibly coming to a theater near you...
possibly coming to a theater near you…

while searching the net, and watching G4tv, a Gears of War movie could be shooting as we speak, but we wont know about it due to its secretcy. BUT, someone managed to get a possible leaked version of the movies plot, if the movie is real. they claim that the movie is about the battle at aspeo fields, which if youve played Gears of War youve heard carmine ask marcus fenix about the battle.
aspo fields appearently was a battle that happened before gears 1 and got marcus fenix into prison.
the SUPPOSED plot goes as followed:
theres a massive battle on the planet sera, COG soldiers are scared, Marcus and Dom get a rag-tag squad, as they come near the enemy’s leader, the leader commits suicide, the COG destroys the planet thinking theyve killed general RAMM but they didnt.
well, thats just a rumor about the movie and i hope no one takes this TOO seriously. i guess we just have to wait and see because i would LOVE to see a gears movie.


Jimi Hendrix Heading To ‘Guitar Hero 4’

18 07 2008

That’s right, for all you Jimi Hendrix fans out there, including tokagowa, he’s heading for Guitar Hero: World Tour. The Seattle company, Experience Hendrix, which controls Jimi’s rock music legacy, is providing Hendrix’s music, including masters such as “Purple Haze,” “Foxy Lady,” and “Little Wing,” and likeness in the new Guitar Hero game. Aaron Grant, spokesman for Activision and RedOctane told the Press:

“It’s the first time Hendrix’s likeness will be showcased in the game.”

A playable avatar of Hendrix, as well as the song “The Wind Cries Mary” and a LIVE version of “Purple Haze” recorded in 1969 at the San Diego Sports Arena, will be included in GH 4. Besides these in-game songs and what not, Experience Hendrix provided Activision and RedOctane with songs that will be released in the future as downloadable content, Grant said.


E3 Day 2: Sony vs. Nintendo

16 07 2008

today is a special day because two of video gaming’s head-honchos square off today in what is a do or die battle royal. sony’s PS3 hasnt been doing well while the big n’s wii has been selling faster than anything thats autographed by Chuck Norris.


sick jj rider

First off, Nintendo.
Going into this press confrence, people were expecting Nintendo to announce somthing gigantic, but they seemed to rely on that “games for everone” crap. they did, however, announce a new Animal Crossing game as well as a Grand Theft Auto game, yes GRAND THEFT AUTO, for the DS.
what can turn out to be a giant sleeper in the video game world is Animal Crossing: City Folk. i got the first Animal Crossing for the gamecube and i, and the rest of the world, fell in love with the game. the fact that they have made a new game for the wii shows that Nintendo remembers what made them what they are today, and that is fun, innovation, and originality. lately, there has been speculation of the new Animal Crossing game and now that Nintendo has confirmed it millions of people will get this game, as well as a new microphone that connects to the wiimote and allows you to talk to your friends on this game, as well as other smash hits like Super Smash Brothers: Brawl and Mario Kart Wii.
besides Animal Crossing, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown -something- (i hate subtitles). this is the first time GTA will hit the DS and i hope for Rock Star’s sake that it isnt a crappy game.


besides those games, nintendo kept on talking about how they would make (crappy) games for every gamer and that the games would be (crappy) easy to play. the only way nintendo has a chance at beating microsoft is by getting great games with super graphics. 

Sony, on the other hand, just got crapped upon by Bill Gates himself. the main objectives for sony was to have a mega-hype/go to game (like the 360’s gears or halo franchises) and to find a way to redeem themselves for making people buy a second refridarator AND for copying nintendos motion sensitve controls. 

they did sorta accomplish one of those objectives, and that was announcing God of War 3. this game may be the only thing to save the ps3 if it finds a way to take a crap on gears 2 (which i bet it wont). this game is the only game that i would by from sony’s press confrence, that is until they make Kingdom Hearts 3 since i am a HUMUNGOUS Kingdom Hearts fan. so if you dont have a ps3, dont rush to get one, wait for the reviews of God of War 3 and maybe a helluav a lot more great games to hit the ps3. 

so, here are what i think the scores of the big threes preformance at E3’08:

1. Microsoft (5 locus things getting curbed stomped out of 5)

2. Nintendo (3.5 fariyes circling around Link’s head out of 5)

3. Sony (for getting crapped on by nintendo. since when does nintendo take craps on companies? they get 1.5 out of 5)

i, for one, hope that they upgrade the guitar so that the buttons give you more feel-back when you press it. im the sickest bassist here at Ace 4. anyway, Rock Band 2 will be at E3 and aditional news can be found at G4tv.com.


Shadow’s Section:

Besides the fact that i am the true bassist/guitarist here, the new game is sounding to be awesome. tokagowa hit most of the main points on drum tutorial and what not, but be sure to watch E3 on G4 TV (July 14th-17th) to get the real review and other things that we havent told you. There may be a custom song creation such as the one on Guitar Hero World Tour. Also some songs from AC/DC is rumored to be on the game (finally). The instruments are going throught some major improvements. Creator Harmonix says that they have developed “Quieter, more realistic, and more reliable instruments” for the new game. The guitar will feature a sunburst pattern, features an automatic screen timing calibration, and will be wireless for the Xbox 360. The drum set will still be using the four pads, but is redesigned to be quieter and provide more ‘bounce’, and is also velocity sensative, so, the harder you hit the drums, the louder the notes in the game. The bass petal is to be reinforced with metal to prevent breakage, as it was seen to happen very often on the original game. Original Rock Band instruments will work for Rock Band 2. For the drums, an additional cymbal add-on pack will be available, providing 4 additional cymbal pads to replicate the functions of the original 4 pads, so can hit the same color cymbal pad and it will count. Also, Harmonix and MTV Games are going to be providing limited addition instruments, including a real Fender Stratocaster guitar reoutfitted with the game’s input buttons, so find an image of a Fender Stratocaster and put the 5 fret buttons on it, and a ION Audio electronic drum kit that can work as a standard electric kit, because of it’s “drum brain”, and within Rock Band 2, it features four drum pads, three cymbal pads, and a bass pedal. You’ll be shellin out $299.99 for this drum set, though.

Tha Carter 3 Review

10 07 2008

i just now recently heard Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter 3, and before listening to it, i hated lil wayne

now that i have heard it, i dont hate him, i just think that he is VERY overrated.
it started with an idea to go see hancock with my cusins, but when i entered his car, he started to blast Tha Carter 3. on our way there, i heard what had to be the worst song i have ever heard, excusing soulja boy’s “do do head”.
all i could hear was “WEEZY, phone home! WEEZY, phone home” for at least five minuets straight. it souded like that was all that the song was about. he was screaming so loud i couldnt even hear his own rap.
although, the only great songs worth mentioning on his cd are “A Mili”, because it has a very simple/sick beat and freestyle type rap to it, and “La La LA” (yes, that is the real name of the song) because it has a catchy chorus. to me, the BEST song was “Mr. Carter” which features Jay Z and has the sickest beat on the cd. the chorus is sick too. tracks:

“3 Peat”

“Mr. Carter” feat. Jay-Z

“A Milli”

“Got Money” feat. T-Pain

“Comfortable” feat. Babyface

“Dr. Carter”

“Phone Home”

“Tie My Hands” feat Robin Thicke

“Mrs. Officer” feat Bobby Valentino

“Let The Beat Build”

“Shoot Me Down” feat. D. Carter

“Lollipop” feat. Static Major

“La La La” feat. Brisco & Busta Rhymes

“Playing With Fire” feat. Betty Wright

“You Ain’t got Nuthin” feat. Fabolous & Juelz Santana


other than those three songs, i wouldnt buy anything else. but, this is just my opinion. if you want a better cd with sorta the same style, just pick up a copy of Graduation by Kanye West, or buy Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool.
so at the end of the day, Tha Carter 3 is about average, something you would expect from a guy who raps with a grill in his mouth (mike jones).
so, IN MY OPINION, Tha Carter 3 gets 3 lighting fast Jimmy Johns Subs out of 5
