The Technology Hobbit Chat: New guy, Project C.A.R.S, HALO 4

TechnoHobbit: Welcome to the second edition of The Technology Hobbit Chat, I am your host TechnoHobbit, and to day I have with me.....

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yo whats up. I'm DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat.

EwokLemonade: Hey guys, im EwokLemonade

TechnoHobbit: Is there anything technology or video game related you guys want to chat about today?

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I'm blank Ewok any ideas?

EwokLemonade: No ideas.

TechnoHobbit: I guess I will choose a topic. . . There's this new racing game called Project Cars, that going to come out in 2013 it looks cool, here are some videos:

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: What game system will it be for?

TechnoHobbit: It going to be for: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: This looks pretty cool.

EwokLemonade: Yeah. I'm not one for racing games, but it seems cool.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I like the side mirror thing.

TechnoHobbit: Yeah.

EwokLemonade: Yea

TechnoHobbit: Anyone want to choose the next topic?

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Techno do you play Minecraft?

TechnoHobbit: Nope not yet.

EwokLemonade: Minecraft is an awesome game.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Well Ewok and I do. But there is this new HUGE update coming for it and it looks awesome.

TechnoHobbit: I'm going to have to try it!

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: It is fun. Ewok and I play multiplayer together for like hours at a time and it is seriously adicting.

TechnoHobbit: I have heard that there some Zelda themed stuff on Minecraft.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Zelda themed stuff?

TechnoHobbit: Like the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past's overworld.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Oh. you can like make a map and like a story line and stuff. and then you can make a folder and save the map to that folder. then people can download the map folder and play your map.

TechnoHobbit: Ah

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: They are called adventure maps

TechnoHobbit: I have to play this game!

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yea.

TechnoHobbit: Ok PS3 Super Slim: are the rumors true or false    I'm thinking they are true, though it's weird that Sony didn't show it off at E3.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I think the rumors are probably true, but I'm not exited.

TechnoHobbit: Same here

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I have a PS3, but it isn't really my thing. The biggest argument from PS3 fans are that its online accounts are free, but PS3 is for singleplayer games. There is a reason you pay for Xbox Live its better.

TechnoHobbit: The one good thing is that used PS3 are going to be cheap! (If they go under $80, I may have to buy one)

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yeah

TechnoHobbit: Anyone want to choose a topic?

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Well I can't wait for HALO 4 to come out.

TechnoHobbit: I still have only seen that one video they showed at E3, it looks cool.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat:

EwokLemonade: So, where were we?

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: HALO 4

EwokLemonade: Someones excited

TechnoHobbit: Looks really cool, though it has a bit too much shooting for my tastes.

EwokLemonade: Shooters are one of my favorite game types.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yah but they're just showing off the new stuff.

EwokLemonade: But they can get old.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: You can pretty much do any thing in custom games.

TechnoHobbit: The main thing I don't care for is the controls. (Editor's Note: and a minor fear of blood)

EwokLemonade: Ah. You don't like shooting with the triggers? Or is it the movement?

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I like the controls. Easy and simple.

EwokLemonade: I like the controls too.  That's probably because we are so used to them though. (Editor's Note: Yeah, I admit I have only played duel analog stick shooters for 50 mins in a store)

TechnoHobbit: It's how you aim, I don't like the second analog stick. (Editor's Note: When I play a  shooter, I use my PC)

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I personally love the two anolog sticks it is awesome.

EwokLemonade: I agree.

TechnoHobbit: You see in real life I have a really good aim, in  duel  anolog sticks shooters I have a bad aim (Yes, I have a bad aim ​).

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yeah in real life it is a lot more fun to shoot.

EwokLemonade: LoL. I don't think I have ever shot a real gun, but airsoft and bb's are fun enough.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Real guns are the best 

TechnoHobbit: I never have shot a real gun (I'm have a good aim in archery, and a few other things).

EwokLemonade: Archery I have done.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: I'm so jealous archery is the best thing ever invented 

TechnoHobbit: Oh, and I also have a good aim in some Wii games (like in Skyward Sword).

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: coolzi o's

EwokLemonade: I suck at aiming the bow in ALL Zelda games. I'm so ashamed 

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: 

EwokLemonade: Shut up princess, LOL.

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: *princess* 

TechnoHobbit: HA HA HA. I have to go now, bye and thanks for chatting! (hope we can chat again soon!)

DJ Fluffy Kitty Cat: Yah it was fun .

EwokLemonade: This is EwokLemonade Signing off.

Wii U Box Art!!

Earlier to day we found out that the plastic of the Wii U game cases is going to be blue. So I was wondering how the box-art from AC3, Just Dance 4, and Avengers: Battle For Earth, would look like with the blue case, so I did a little Photoshop and this is what I came up with:
Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U Box Art

Just Dance 4 Wii U Box Art

The Avengers: Battle for Earth Wii U Box Art
Here's other box-art (with the case) we already know:
Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition Box Art
Rayman Legends Box Art
Here's some box-art (with the case) I made and may not be how the final box art looks:
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Wii U Box Art
Nintendo Land Box Art
New Super Mario Bros. U Box Art

Looks pretty cool doesn't it?

Is The Plastic Of Wii U Game Cases Aqua Blue?

It looks like the plastic of the Wii U game cases are going to be either aqua blue or bright aquamarine -- see the pics below:

This one is aqua blue

This one is bright aquamarine
I personally like the aqua blue, but don't care for the bright aquamarine. What do you guys think?

It looks like they changed Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition's game case to aqua blue:

Yet Another Post Proving the Wii U's Power

Since some people still believe there is no Wii U ports, that look better than what the PS3/Xbox 360 ports. I have made this post to let them see for themselves weather or not, the Wii U has better graphics:

In the PS3 version: textures aren't as clear, the explosion looks less real, the sky is less detailed, the blimp isn't included, banners on the building aren't included and the draw distance is less (blurry buildings).  In the Wii U version:  Lots and lots of detail, better textures, large draw distance, and amazing sky.

Wii U version: better lighting.
(click on photo to make bigger) Note the Wii U version's extra contrast and defined edges.
(click on photo to make bigger) The Wii U version has much better textures (see the wood on the wall), more detailed grass, and larger draw distance. (The reason the Wii U version darker and has a reflection is because it was video taped  off a television screen at E3)

Well, what do you think? Witch has better graphics? Comment below!
