Remember remember the 20th of June? LulzSec a group of hackers that have been very active the last week in spreading themselves on the net, google them and you should have several hits, articles and messages from them and what they do. Previously it’s been somewhat unclear what they actually wanted with all these hackings, this includes spreading the mail + passwords of 62.000 accounts from an unknown member database, attacking websites and games.
I must say they’ve been clever, attacking games to start of a proper discussion online about them. Spreading their name like a wildfire in gaming communities, me and several friends even started using the line “It’s LulzSec” whenever a game started lagging or when a server closed down in a game we played. Why is this smart? Aren’t they attacking the people that could stand behind them and support them? Exactly, people now look for information about them, follow their twitter, read their webpage for updates and with that seeing the true idea behind LulzSec.
By reading the message entitled 1000th tweet press release.
In this message they give a few valid and very interesting points to what they’ve been doing. Explaining that they may as well have kept themselves hidden, not letting us, the people know what’s going on. By spreading company information, and account passwords they’ve shown that there is lacking security in the system. You may call LulzSec online terrorists, but in truth, they’ve been showing us what actual online terrorist would be capable of if they wanted to.
“This is what you should be fearful of, not us releasing things publicly, but the fact that someone hasn’t released something publicly. We’re sitting on 200,000 Brink users right now that we never gave out. It might make you feel safe knowing we told you, so that Brink users may change their passwords. What if we hadn’t told you? No one would be aware of this theft, and we’d have a fresh 200,000 peons to abuse, completely unaware of a breach.”

Now over to what really matter, their latest mission statement, I don’t know where this was found originally, but I found it thanks to LulzSec themselves, linking to this article: http://gizmodo.com/5813560/lulzsec-and-anonymous-declare-open-war-against-all-governments-and-fat-cats from their twitter.
Salutations Lulz Lizards,
As we’re aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean. Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think it’s acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight. Our Lulz Lizard battle fleet is now declaring immediate and unremitting war on the freedom-snatching moderators of 2011.
Welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) – we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word “AntiSec” on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships.
Whether you’re sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship, we invite you to join the rebellion. Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons. Your hat can be white, gray or black, your skin and race are not important. If you’re aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security.
Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood.
It’s now or never. Come aboard, we’re expecting you…
History begins today.
Friends of the people.
Enemies of the governments.
People having a laugh at the world expense.
Nobody really knows except LulzSec themselves, but if something big would start from this. Which side will you choose?
Some fun information, LulzSec is about to hit 5 million google hits. It’s growing.
For all of you out there that didn’t like the old style of Resident Evil, and love action games, welcome to the new Resident Evil! I must say I’m loving the look, I’m loving the style and after seeing a few in game videos I’m really looking forward to playing this game.
They’ve taken a step away from the horror, and single player seems to be a thing of the past. This time you’re seeing the story from a different kind of angle, from that of an Umbrella special unit. The time and place being Raccoon City during same time that Resident Evil 2 took place. For all of you out there that loved Hunk and his mini game from Resident Evil 2, keep your fingers crossed for a guest appearance from our favorite Umbrella operative.
It seems that the unit we’re following is after Leon Kennedy the hero from both Resident Evil 2 and 4. This probably means that we will also see Claire Redfield somewhere in the story, at least I hope so. There are SO many things that I want to see now that they’ve taken a step back to the first outbreak and Raccoon City, the places we can revisit, the original zombies walking around and filling up the streets trying to eat your brains out.
Er Story Trailer
From what we’ve seen in the game play videos, it seems to have changed quite a lot, we still have the 3d person look. But the way it plays has changed from the slower movement and stop to aim kind of game play to: action, and a lot of it. This time Umbrella faces the governments own special forces that tries to stop them from completing their mission (whatever that may be). So this means that there will be humans shooting back at you this time around, and at the same time, zombies are walking around the streets of the conflict. Awesome setting for an action game if you ask me!
This also gives a lot to ask for when it comes to multiplayer and co-op, we can finally be up to 4 people playing alongside each other to finish the missions; this is a step further from Resident Evil 5. Will there be multiplayer where you can either be on the governments’ side or Umbrellas? So that you can fight it out on the zombie filled streets of Raccoon city, now with objectives and deathmatch modes like seen in games like Gear of War? I hope this game will bring this and maybe even more, come on Capcom! Show us what you can do!

First Trailer Released
Dags för lite nörd skrivande! Jag gillar inte uttrycker men jaja, folk gillar det så får väl följa med i det där.
I vilket fall fick jag just syn på en dröm, en relik som har funnits i franrike och bara väntat på att få släppas här. En expansion till det härliga brädspelet: Tannhäuser.
Nämligen: Operation: Novgorod .
Väntat på expansionen i ett år nu och äntligen träffade den hyllor utöver hela världen då Fantasy Flight Games insåg att. “Oj sa vi att vi skulle börja göra något me den här produkten… i Januari… 2008?”
I vilket fall så är jag glad att äntligen få tillgång till detta och får hoppas att dom blir lite snabbare med att släppa iväg expansions grejer till ett spel, som är kul, men behöver mer alternativ och element. Coffeh kan hålla med mig där. 😉
Sen en annan god nyhet. Efter att ha fått ihop en ca 600 poängs arme för Tau så skall jag nu börja med ett litet större projekt med Black Templars.
Ni säger: Va? Jag säger: Hm?… Ja juste! För warhammar 40.000 såklart. ^^ Ett tabletop spel med armer och figurer som man målar och limmar och… så vidare.
Även om tau är ett projekt jag kommer ha kvar och inte göra mig av med (troligen kommer det spelas mest 400-500poängs matcher mellan mig och vänner), så vill jag börja på något som jag alltid varit intresserad av egentligen.
Black Templars. Tänk er: Supermänniskor. Korsriddare. I framtiden. Som slåss för sin herre med stora vapen och blixtrande krigshammare. Tänk er dom i svarta rustningar och kors och små heliga texter utöver sig.
Ja hur kan man… inte älska dom!
Mer om det kommer så fort jag sätter igång. Tack och lov får jag en del saker från min bror då han var först med denna arme (en anledning till varför jag inte spelat dom). Så han får mig att spara in nästan 700kr. 🙂 Tack bror!
