50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is possibly the greatest video game to ever tell the hardships of a man trying to retrieve his stolen property. But, it seems Fiddy himself has some new ideas for a third game -- just as long as the game is “unique,” and in whatever shape it takes, “extreme.”
In an interview with GameSpot, promoting the new movie Den of Thieves, 50 Cent discussed his interest in a third game and shared the idea of a concept similar to that of Tomorrow, Today, an upcoming show on Starz. The show is based on a screenplay, written by Fiddy, about a prisoner who gets experimented on in an attempt to create the perfect human -- resulting in a crime-fighting superhero who also happens to be on the run from the police.

The "dollies" are never ones to sit idle and were heavily involved in some of my new custom fabric designs. They would tell you that they were the main impetus in all my new designs. That would be true, especially when it came to the new designs for The Dollie Storage Room Fabric Collection.

I am a big fan of tote bags. The more the merrier. I use than for all sorts of reasons as I'm sure you all do too. For the most part they work out great, but once in awhile, they're just not big enough. As a result, I'm always on the look out for larger ones.
I'm sure all of you have your fabric stash piles like I do. For years now I've been looking at two lightweight cotton twill fabrics in a pile on top of my sewing basket. They're there to remind me to do something with them. So, of course, they've sat there for years now.
Well, this year I decided to make a few really big lined tote bags with long straps for Christmas presents.
I had previously bought 5 yards of my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1 custom fabric design out of lightweight cotton twill and decided that I'd use it to make three lined tote bags.
My sister had given me several yards of this blue and white check fabric that she had gotten from a friend and had given to me. She was cleaning out her stash of fabrics and knew I wouldn't refuse it. It would be used at some point in time. In looking at my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1 custom fabric design I decided the blue and white check would be a perfect compliment for a lining not only for these three bags but for the Victorian Pastel Water Lilies Flower Fabric 15 cut and sew tote bag as well.
I decided a 22" wide by 21" long by 6" deep lined tote bag with a square corner would be a perfect size for these three as well. I figured I would start with the three yards of my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1 custom fabric design out of cotton twill first.
Here's how I made my tote bag:
Supplies Needed Per Bag:
1 Yard of 58" wide Lightweight Cotton Twill Fabric - Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric (for bag)
1 1/4 Yards of 42" Wide Cotton Fabric (for lining)
Sewing Thread and Upholstery Thread
1/2" Lace Trim - 1 1/2 Yards
1 Yard of Fusi-boo Batting
RS - Right Sides RST - Right Sides Together RSO - Right Sides Out
WS - Wrong Sides WST - Wrong Sides Together WSO - Wrong Sides Out
4) Sandwich one of the fusi-boo pieces in between the WS of one of the lightweight cotton twill fabric pieces and WS of one of the cotton fabric pieces so you have a 3-layer tote bag section. Do the same with the other lightweight cotton twill piece, fusi-boo piece, and other cotton fabric piece. You should have two 3-layer tote bag sections.
5) Iron the RS of the lightweight cotton twill fabric and then turn the 3-layer tote bag section over and iron the RS of the cotton fabric so the fusi-boo fabric is fused to the WS of both the lightweight cotton twill and cotton fabrics. Do the same for the other 3-layer tote bag sections.
6) The edges of the two 3-layer tote bag section will be labeled as shown in the illustration above.
15) Finish stitch along the side edges and bottom edge using a zig-zag stitch or overlock stitch.
19) Turn the bag RSO and iron the seams.
21) With RST place the bottom edge of one of the straps at the 4" mark on the top front left top edge and the top edge of that same handle RST on the top front right top edge with the handle facing downwards towards the bottom of the tote bag and pin both to hold. Do the same for the remaining handle and top back top edge.
22) Turn the tote bag inside out so the handles are facing downwards on the inside of the bag and the cotton lining fabric showing on the outside. With RST fold the top edge of the tote bag and handle under twice and pin to hold.
23) Stitch the top edge of the folded under top edge of the tote bag 1/4" from the bottom edge of the folded down section.
24) Pull the handles up and with RST pin the handles to the top edge of the tote bag. Stitch 1/4" from the top edge of the folded down area and handle.
25) Turn the tote bag RSO. Cut a piece of the 1/2" lace trim to fit around the top edge of the tote bag overlapping the edges by 2". Fold one edge of the lace trim WST and then pin the lace trim to the top edge of the tote bag along the sewn line on the bottom of the folded down section. Continue pining around the top of the tote covering your sewn line until meeting the lace trim again. Fold the edge of the lace trim under 1" and pin to hold. Stitch the lace trim to the tote bag stitching along the center line of the lace trim.
26) Your tote bag should look as shown in the picture above.
27) The inside of the tote bag should look as shown in the picture above.
Since I was making them anyway I decided to create an e-book tutorial showing you how I made my large tote bags.

Upon playing VA-11 HALL-A last year, I realised that I have very particular tastes: specifically, I love cyberpunk bartending and relationship simulators. It's barely an exaggeration to say it was the highlight of last year's gaming roster for me, with its nonsense ingredients, quirky patrons and existential pondering. So, when 2064: Read Only Memories came to the PS4 in Europe last month and to the Vita a few days ago, I finally got round to putting more puzzle pieces together in the joint universe of Neo-SF.
Such was my excitement that I decided it was time to break out the liquor cabinet (i.e. a bottle of Absolut that has been sat in our freezer for well over a year after a Halloween party) and try to recreate some of the beverages served in Neo-SF's hotspot, the Stardust. My goals? To do it on a pauper's budget, to make cocktails that even a moron such as myself could replicate, and not to barf. Of course, I got off to a good start on the third aim, given that I picked recipes containing 1) milk and 2) energy drinks.
So, were my attempts a success? Would Gus approve of my efforts, or did I make pure pig swill?
I'm pleased to report that all of my attempts were at least somewhat successful! So, instead of following my original plan of writing up a failed chemistry experiment, I'm going to give you the recipes for some delightful drinks to slurp down while chatting away with Turing. Enjoy!
[Update: Looks like The Rock digs it.]
There was a time when the only micro-transactions in gaming were spent on continues, explicitly with quarters, each time you lost all your lives in an arcade game. Back then, Capcom's arcade division was hugely profitable, much more so than their console or mobile game outings are today. Their explicit mastery of producing state-of-the-art 2D sprite-based graphics and engineering game mechanics that compelled players to plunk more quarters-per-minute put them in a league of their own. Some records state that Street Fighter 2 made an estimated +2 billion dollars in arcades by the end of 1995, and's just one game.
While competitive fighting games were by far their most profitable outings, cooperative multi-player beat 'em ups came in a close second. By allowing four, five, or even six people to play at once, publishers could make four, five, or six times as much money in the same amount of time.
That's why I'm sure this theoretical Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle beat 'em up, crafted in the style of Capcom classics like Dungeons and Dragons: Shadows Over Mystara and Cadillacs and Dinosaurs would be insanely profitable, regardless of when it was released. Sure, it would undoubtedly have made the most money if it were put out in arcades back in the 90s, but I think it could still do well today if released on Steam and consoles.

It has been made aware to me that, just perhaps, you all enjoy video games. It might even be said that you... like to game with others? Now now, don't be that way, I don't mean to lump you into some sort of box. You're all just such lovely folks, it pains me to watch you, struggling in vain to connect with each other, striving to engage in...
Writing about Super Smash Bros for an article covering fan service is a bit of a cop-out. The series is literally nothing but fan service. Since Melee, every Smash game has dived deeper and deeper into the history of Nintendo, pulling out references from nearly every product Nintendo has put out. There are callbacks to characters from games we haven't seen in years and products Nintendo hasn't made in decades, with Smash for Wii U and 3DS featuring the most extensive historical record the series has seen yet.
Really, going into this topic I was planning to write about Duck Hunt Dog calling in the NES Zapper Posse to blast his opponents away. As much as I love that, it ain't got nothing on Mega Man. Mega Man's Final Smash is a celebration of a series people assume Capcom didn't care about for the longest time. Hell, Mega Man's appearance in Smash is the most love and care given to the character in nearly a decade. With his unique move set, Mega Man easily outshone the other 3rd-Party guest characters. With his Final Smash, he outdid the rest of the cast.
I don't remember where I was when I first saw his final smash, but I do remember my jaw dropping and nearly crashing my browser reloading the YouTube clip. Even though I prefer other characters, I made myself get good with him just so I could see Mega Man, X, EXE, Volnutt, and Star Force come together in one spectacular finish. It's so frickin' good that if Mega Man returns in Smash Switch, I wouldn't mind if his Final Smash was left untouched.
