Just Go With It:
Mad Max is an open world style video game that follows the film that recently came out. It is set in a post-apocalyptic setting where cars are the key to survival. You become Mad Max, a lone warrior who must fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using vicious on-ground and vehicular combat against savage gangs of bandits. Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket and others to build the ultimate war vehicle as he works to escape from the dangerous Wasteland.
In the game you look for trash since every scrap that’s scavenged is important and can be utilized to upgrade and enhance equipment, weapons and vehicles. Gamers raid enemy encampments to gain access to valuable resources. You will fight with deadly factions and gangs through scores of dangerous side-missions and quests in the dynamic open-world full of exploration.
For those who love driving games there are modes where you have inter-vehicular combat, taking down enemy vehicles with a range of powerful weapons. Car combat is entirely physics-based, so no two battles are ever the same.
You can even build the “Ultimate War Machine” as you design, customize and upgrade your ultimate combat vehicle – the Magnum Opus – choosing from different car bodies and a slew of upgrades including mounted weapons, armor and engines to survive another day.
The game comes out tomorrow.
WWE Superstar John Cena has done more than his fair share of doing tremendous work in the community to give back. Don’t believe me? Well his actions speaks for themselves. This past Monday John granted his 500th wish on Monday Night Raw.
The 15-time World Champion and current United States Champion on the Today Show surprised longtime Cena fan and Make-a-Wish recipient Rocco Lanzer on the set. Rocco was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year, and was too sick to interact with John on his first attempt to visit. John got to spend a few minutes talking with Rocco and gave him all of his latest gear.
With this wish he granted that made it his 500th, Cena is the first celebrity in the history of the organization to do so. “I’ll continue to be involved with Make-A-Wish as long as they’ll have me,” he said.
This is what the world needs. A role model, who is in the limelight that always goes the extra step to make it a better day for those in need. While athletes might not feel that they are a role model, kids will look up to them. You see that he is loving the moment just as much as the wish recipient is. Congrats to John Cena for making this place a little brighter with your actions.
You do say that people “can’t see you,” well my friend trust me we see you and are very proud of everything you do to make this world a better place.

Tomorrow is Madden Day. Some people take off work and treat it like a national holiday. I totally understand. I am a fan of the Madden series. The folks at EA Sports are smart to release the game right near the weeks leading up to the NFL Kickoff game. To build up even more hype they created a trailer for the game that mixes football and a montage of films from 80’s.
The trailer stars Rob Gronkowski, Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, Rex Ryan, and Colin Kaepernick. Watch how Colin channels his inner Al Pacino.
