Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz. At first he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking. That all changes, however, when he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz), and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. 

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well. Written by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

In Victory you can create your car from scratch, choosing different car blocks, accessories, decals, template and more. You level up and top-up your car performance the way you prefer assigning performance points to the different attributes and changing your car setup!

“One of the best free to play racing games on the market now" SpazioGames

“A realistic driving model matched with an extreme car customization thanks to the best car editor ever seen on a racing game." Mmorpgitalia

Realistic Car Physics
    An easy to use realistic physics means an unprecedented car handling in a game for everyone that is both easy to learn and hard to master.

Multiple Control Methods
    You can choose between gamepad, keyboard or the mouse as the primary control method. This gives the game a large compatibility and doesn't force you to always have the gamepad with you, we've worked hard to create the best keyboard controls available on the market for a racing game.

Fun and Easy Multiplayer
    Victory is based on quick competitions where players gain experience points and collect different car items to increase their car's attributes and reach the top of the leader board. Victory is a game for the casual racers that want more: a realistic car physics and a real racing experience with real time collisions, maintaining easy to learn game controls.best keyboard controls available on the market for a racing game. Steering wheels support is coming in the next patch. Victory is also a game for the hard core racers that don't have time for a full professional three hours race and want to race with a more casual and funny gameplay.

Incredible Car Customization

Car Attributes Development
    Each car in Victory is described by six different attributes: Weight, Aerodynamics, Traction, Grip, Brakes and Power. Like in a role playing game, you have to spend performance points, unlocked by leveling up, in those six different attributes to finally reach the perfect attributes combination for your driving style and racing conditions.

Victory: The Age of Racing Review

Victory: The Age of Racing is an amazing racing game. The physics are sim enough to entice the hardcore sim racing fanatic, yet arcade enough that absolutely anyone can pick it up and play.
Customizeable cars in both looks and performance related upgrades. It has a level up system that has a bit of an addicting nature to it, I've found myself saying "just one more race" a few times in a row before finally calling it a night. When you level up you add performance points to enhance your vehicle, and also unlock other parts to put on your racecar to get the look you want.

Three tiers of competition to choose from (top two need to be unlocked by leveling to 20 and 40 respectively) each tier hosting a higher powered, harder to drive, more fun to master car.

Car setups can be customized a bit (simplified interface that is easy to use even for the novice racer) which adds extra reason to go testing and complete the time trial challenges. I'm not going to cover the time trial challenges (they can be fun too) but I don't remember a ton of details about them other than them encouraging clean laps and precision driving to really excel at, and being a good time killer if you are waiting for people to come online to race with.

The game itself has a similar feel to something like trackmania, with a much more down to earth/realistic feel. Servers have many options to them such as optional collision, the collisions are simplified but still make the racing that much more intense.

Probably the best server option available is the handicapping. If you race against people who having a more upgraded car, or are just faster than you, after a race they will receive a weight penalty for the next race, if they win again it increases. The reason they will want to keep racing when faced with a weight penalty is that their rewards and experience points get boosted depending on how much of a weight penalty they have and where they place with it. It makes for close fun racing even with people of varying levels of both experience and vehicle.

My only negative points to this game (which don't take away from this being worth the 5 stars I gave it) are the small field sizes, and the short races. Other than that I've really enjoyed this game and must recommend it.

The only other thing lacking in this title (so far) has been the number of people playing (or not playing) it.
If you are a racing fan of any sort, then you have no reason to not go play this game!

Oscars 2013: Daniel Day-Lewis makes Hollywood history

Daniel Day-Lewis has made Oscars history by becoming the first person to win the best actor prize three times.

The British-born star, who had been the runaway favourite, was rewarded for his role in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.

"I really don't know how any of this happened. I do know I've received much more than my fair share of good fortune in my life," he said.

Ben Affleck's Iran-set rescue thriller Argo beat Lincoln to the top prize for best picture.

In a live broadcast from the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama joined Jack Nicholson to help present the best picture prize at the end of the night.

Argo is the first best picture winner not to have a concurrent nomination for best director since 1989's Driving Miss Daisy.

But despite Affleck's omission from the best director category, the film had been widely-tipped to take the top prize.

Oscars host Seth MacFarlane joked at the start of the ceremony: "Argo's story is so top-secret that its director remains unknown to the Academy."

Accepting his award alongside fellow producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov, Affleck paid tribute to the "genius" Steven Spielberg who lost out in the same category.

Referring to his previous Oscar success with 1997's Good Will Hunting, he said: "I never thought I would be back here and I am because of so many of you who are here tonight".He added: "It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, all that matters is that you get up."

The Oscar victory for Daniel Day-Lewis puts him ahead of Hollywood legends Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando, Dustin Hoffman and Tom Hanks - who all have two best actor wins to their name.

Day-Lewis, who holds UK-Irish citizenship, previously won for My Left Foot (in 1990) and There Will Be Blood (2008) and has a reputation for immersing himself in his roles.

Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for best actress for her role as a troubled young widow in Silver Linings Playbook. The 22-year-old actress, who stumbled over her dress on her way to the stage, joked: "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell over and that's embarrassing."Surveying the huge audience in Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, she added: "This is nuts." It was the first Oscar win for Lawrence, who was previously nominated for best actress in 2011 for her performance in Winter's Bone.

Anne Hathaway won the Oscar for best supporting actress for her role as tragic factory worker Fantine in movie musical Les Miserables.

With her cropped hair and gaunt face, Hathaway's teary version of I Dreamed a Dream had made her an Oscar favourite. "It came true," the actress said when she collected her statuette.Hathaway's Oscar was her first, the actress having been previously nominated in 2008 for Rachel Getting Married.

Hathaway said: "Here's hoping that someday in the not too distant future, the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and not in real life."

British singer Adele won the Oscar for best original song for her Bond theme Skyfall, which she also performed during the show.

She struggled through tears to thank the Bond producers and her co-writer Paul Epworth, who collected the award alongside her.

Ang Lee won his second Oscar for directing Life of Pi, the adaption of Yann Martel's fantasy novel about a boy stranded in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. The film won four Oscars in total, more than any other film.

The Taiwanese-born director, who won previously for Brokeback Mountain (2006), exclaimed: "Thank you, movie god!"

Life of Pi picked up two Oscars in the early stages of the awards for cinematography and visual effects.

Cinematographer Claudio Miranda admitted in an emotional acceptance speech: "This movie was quite a beast to make." Later, Mychael Danna picked up the statuette for Life of Pi's original score.

Christoph Waltz won his second Oscar for best supporting actor in a Quentin Tarantino film, this time as a German bounty hunter in the slave revenge story Django Unchained.

Picking up the first award of the night, Waltz offered thanks to his character Dr King Schultz and to "his creator and the creator of his awe-inspiring world, Quentin Tarantino."

The Austrian actor won his first Oscar as a Nazi colonel in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds in 2010.

Tarantino won the original screenplay prize for Django Unchained, adding to the Oscar he won for writing Pulp Fiction in 1994. "I have to cast the right people to make those characters come alive and boy this time did I do it," he said.

The best adapted screenplay Oscar went to Chris Terrio for Ben Affleck's Iran-set siege thriller Argo.

The best short animated film category was won by Paperman, while Pixar's Scottish adventure Brave won best animated feature.

The award for costume design went to Briton Jacqueline Durran for Anna Karenina. She described the win as "completely overwhelming" and paid tribute to her children who were "fast asleep in England".

The make-up and hairstyling award went to fellow Brits Lisa Westcott and Julie Dartnell for Les Miserables. Tom Hooper's musical also picked up the Oscar for sound mixing.

Unusually, there was a tie in the sound editing category - the Oscar was shared by Zero Dark Thirty and Skyfall.

Searching for Sugar Man, which tells the story of musician Rodriguez who disappeared from public view in the early 1970s but developed a cult following in South Africa, won the Oscar for best documentary.

Producer Simon Chinn said: "Rodriguez isn't here tonight because he didn't want to take any of the credit himself."

Austrian drama Amour won the Oscar for best foreign language film.

The French-language film, directed by Michael Haneke, portrays the indignities of an elderly Parisian couple - Anne and Georges - as they cope with Anne's wish to die after a stroke.

Host Seth MacFarlane kicked off the ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with the quip: "I honestly cannot believe I'm here. It's an honour that everyone else said 'no'".After an exchange with William Shatner, who appeared as Star Trek's Captain Kirk, the Family Guy creator launched into a satirical song about topless appearances by actresses in the movies.

Almost an hour into the three-and-a-half hour show, Halle Berry introduced a tribute to the James Bond franchise, followed by Dame Shirley Bassey who sang her theme song to the 1960s Bond classic Goldfinger.

The show also featured a salute to movie musicals of the past decade, with Chicago Oscar-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dreamgirls winner Jennifer Hudson joining Les Miserables cast members that included Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Helena Bonham Carter and Amanda Seyfried.

During the section of the show that pays tribute to those who died in 2012, Barbra Streisand sang the late Marvin Hamlisch's The Way We Were, from the 1973 romantic drama in which she starred with Robert Redford. It was Streisand's first Oscars performance for 36 years.
