Smash Bros. player good enough to earn a bounty on his head

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Must be hard being so good at what you do that people will pay to see you suffer! A player by the name of Gonzalo “Zero” Barrios is a pro when it comes to using Diddy Kong in Super Smash Bros. So much so that he has scored a first place ranking in a whopping 34 1-on-1 tournaments in a row!

In response to his wild success, spectators are joining the fray to bring him down by offering a substantial reward for the one who defeats him in an upcoming fighting tournament.

No disintegrations!

Alex Jebailey, founder of the Orlando fighting game tournament Community Effort Orlando, has offered $250 to the player who can knock Barrios out in fair play. This reward comes on top of the $1,000 a player can get for winning the tournament. Smashboards.com owner Chris Brown also threw in an offer of $250.

Jebailey has stated that he has respect for Barrios, and that he has hosted bounties against other talented players in the past. Nothing personal, just business. In fact, I’d wear it like a badge of honor if someone thought I was worth the money.

Barrios himself seems like a bit of a trash talker on social media, but as far as I’m concerned, if you nab 1st place in 34 straight tournaments, you’ve earned the right to lay it on thick. He’s also taking this bounty in a sporting mood and seems to be up to the challenge.

What do you think? Have what it takes to bring him down? Show up to the Community Effort Orlando fighting tournament, and the $500 could be yours. I only hope that in some form of universal poetic justice that whoever does bring down Barrios is controlling Samus when doing so.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
