I debated whether or not I should actually post this video.  I didn’t get as many good results as I had in the previous Echovox session.  Still, I think it’s equally important to post the videos that are a bit boring with not as good results to prove that this thing doesn’t always work as good.  Plus you can see what it’s like with the settings I had used.  In any case..

I’m quite surprised at the results I ended up getting this week with Echovox.  Warning, there are some moments Electronic Cigarette of foul language in this one.  It seems the spirits (or whatever it is) have potty mouths.

Time to try out a different app.  This time I take a look at ECHOVOX by Big Beard Studios.  Like Spiritvoice, it’s supposed to allow spirits to communicate in real time though this time it uses the power of echo to Buy Generic Cialis Online help.  I’m still not entirely sure how echo is supposed to enhance communication but it’s at least something new and different to try out.

I will probably make more videos about this app as I keep trying it out.

Posted by Iyouboushi on March - 4 - 2014 Comments Off on Ghost Hunting Apps – Ghost Radar Update

There are soooo many ghost hunting apps for phones these days. I know 99% of them are jokes but I’m wondering if there’s at least one that isn’t.

This is actually an update video to a Ghost Radar video that Breezieana and I did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSv9PEfDNi4

Ghost Radar is an app by Spud Pickles: http://spudpickles.com/

As I mention in this video, this is probably the last time I will talk about Ghost Radar.  However, if anyone out there has evidence that they want to share don’t hesitate to post it as a comment.

Posted by Iyouboushi on September - 17 - 2013 Comments Off on Ghost App Review: Ghost Detector Tool

It’s that time again; time for another review of a Ghost App!  This is another app for iOS and it’s called Ghost Detector Tool.  iTunes has this to say:

The spookiest app on iTunes is back with a whole new layout and many more features!This application has the ability to scan multiple frequencies for paranormal activity! We’ve incorporated EVP, EMF, and video scanning into one single app for hunting ghosts!

Simply scan areas of your house at different frequency ranges to see if you can hear anything! If you can’t pick anything up, try moving to a new area, using different frequencies, or asking questions/ giving messages to the other side. This app is best used alone!

If the picture looks like something out of a bad Sega CD game, allow me to explain how it works.

What happens in this app is that after you turn it on it pops up with a camera that shows you what you’re looking at.  The camera’s colors can be adjusted using the spectrum and gain settings because allegedly various colors will reveal more ghosts or something.  As you scan the screen may occasionally start to turn into static to indicate a presence.  If it goes into full static mode, a picture overlay may appear (such as a skull, a face, etc) and it will say a word.

So on the outside it isn’t as complicated as Ghost Radar but it is much cheesier.  The static thing is only there to scare you, as is the picture of a skull or whatever that may pop up.  ONOZ A BAD SPIRIT!  The words are near impossible to hear even if you have the phone turned up all the way, making it pointless.  It doesn’t display the word on the screen so if you miss it then that’s it, you miss it.

If they got rid of the static and the spooky picture overlay they might be able to fool some more people.  Like the other app that we reviewed, as a joke to scare someone this might work OK (though not as good as the other since you can’t actually understand the words it spits out).  As a serious ghost hunting tool don’t even waste your time with this one.

Cost: free
Rating: 0/5 for ghost hunting, 2/5 for joking around.

 

Next time will be an Android app that people have claimed to have fairly good results with.  Due to the nature of this upcoming app it might be a little longer before we get a review out on it.  Look forward to it!

Posted by Iyouboushi on August - 30 - 2013 Comments Off on Ghost App Review: Ghost Detect Pro

This is the start of a series of reviews of Ghost Apps (detection, communication and what have you).   Our interest in doing this stated with an app known as Ghost Radar that we later discovered was completely fake (thanks to the guy who decompiled the code and explained it all in full).  I was always a little on the fence about that app but it made me wonder if there’s any apps out there that are legit or not.  Bri and I will be trying various Ghost Apps on both Android and iOS.  We’re determined to find out if there’s any legit apps out there that will actually aid people in ghost hunting or spirit communication.

So let’s get started with today’s app:  Ghost Detect Pro.   It is available for iOS.  Here’s what iTunes has to say about the app:

• This app WILL scare you
• ALL the sensors on one page
• Radar that actually tracks anomalies
• Very accurate EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) detector
• Super sensitive microphone – hears every little noise
• Records audio for EVP sessions
• EVP that speaks to you, with five different voices available
• Detects vibrations and movement
• Alerts for every sensor
• Draws all this to a very accurate graph
• Quantum Flux detector
• Takes photos and detects anomalies in them – Camera can be turned off an onGraph detail info below:
• Device Sensor Readout/Graph:This will show data over time.

Graph Line Colors:
* Red = Change in magnetic field in the X axis.
* Green = Change in magnetic field in the Y axis.
* Blue = Change in magnetic field in the Z axis.
* Yellow = Change in Electro Magnetic Field Discriminator (see description below).
* White = Change in Microphone Sound Input (see description below).
* Orange = Change in the Quantum Flux, if this line is moving up or down, strange things may happen.

More detailed instructions are in the app, just touch the little blue “i” button.

As you can see, when you start the app you’re treated with a plethora of meters, numbers, radar sweeps and graphs.  It looks legit enough.  The radar sweeps through and eventually, just like Ghost Radar, finds a blip.  The blips can be different colors, just like Ghost Radar.  Eventually it might even spit out a word.

The silliest feature of this app is the ghost detection via camera part.  Randomly the app will tell you “ghost detected” and switch to the photo section so you can take a picture of it.  After a few seconds it snaps a picture and overlays some orbs or a shadowy looking figure on it.  oOoooOooOo, spooky, right?  I mean, oh snap.  Orbs!  And sometimes a shadowy figure!  IT MUST BE REAL!  Only, you can cover up the camera completely and it will still snap a picture and add the overlay of orbs/figure.  Gee, ghosts sure are thin if they can get between the camera lens and whatever you use to completely block the camera.

If they had left out the photo part perhaps it would be more convincing, but I already know from experience that the radar part is total BS and the other meters don’t seem to really read anything real.  It is true that phones (or at least some phones) can detect some EMF but they’re not really designed to act as an EMF detector.

It also seems that ghost hunting app makers just love the word quantum flux.  This is the second app I’ve seen that claims it can read and detect variations in the quantum flux.  Well, the iPhone (and Android phones for that matter) do not house any type of laser micrometer; its chronometer is not accurate to within one millionth of a second (as would be required for quantum measurement), it doesn’t have the hard memory necessary to house the highly complex calculations and mathematical theories needed to quantify any such fluctuation, and simply put it doesn’t have the ability to see quantum particles.  So yeah, keep using that word guys.

Final verdict?  As a joke app, this one is pretty good.  You could probably scare someone who isn’t in the know about it being a joke app and convince them their house is haunted (and hey, you’ll have picture proof after it snaps a pic!).  For real ghost hunting this app is rubbish and isn’t going to help you detect your way out of a paper bag..

Cost: free
Rating: 0/5 for actual ghost hunting, 5/5 for joking around.

Posted by Iyouboushi on March - 8 - 2013 Comments Off on Rurouni Kenshin movie review/thoughts

I had the pleasure of seeing the live action Rurouni Kenshin movie and thought that I’d share some of my opinions on it as I’ve been an RK fan for quite a long time now.  Go below the jump to see if they did it justice or if it turned out to be a waste of time!

Posted by Iyouboushi on January - 18 - 2013 Comments Off on DmC Game Thoughts

DmC: Devil May Cry.  I think this is the first time I got a new game when it was released and beat it within a reasonable time in years.  I swear it normally seems like I’m the last person on the planet to get a game and it usually takes me forever to beat them. I guess this goes to show that I actually enjoyed the game quite a bit.

Most of the points in the demo review I did still stand.  I would like to add that I did see quite a few textural issues during the cutscenes while playing on the PS3.  It seems like the game glitched a lot on shadows and occasionally things would just pop up and out randomly (like grass and trees).  I don’t know if it’s just my PS3, the fact it’s running 30fps, or what.  It was noticeable though and that’s probably the biggest complaint I have with the game at the moment.  It was only during the cutscenes that this occurred as well; the in-game graphics ran fine and smooth.  I never experienced any slow-downs, clipping issues, or anything else with the actual in-game graphics.

So with that said, I actually had a lot of fun with this game.  I’m really anxious for the Bloody Palace DLC now (always enjoy going through those except for DMC 2’s lol).  And I still have a lot of stuff to go back and collect that I missed the first time around (mainly due to trying to finish the game’s story).

I’ve had a few people ask me if I’d recommend this game and my answer is this:  are you an expert DMC player? Can you Royal Guard everything to perfection? Do you know how to jump cancel and basically can beat the games backwards and forwards in your sleep?  If so, you will more than likely find DmC  too easy even on the harder difficulties (and may find it boring due to it being too easy).  If you’re like me and you’re just an average Joe player at DMC, you will probably have fun with it.  It’s not overly difficult to the point where you want to ragequit but I found myself dying at least a few times in the game (so it’s not a total pushover as well).  The story is cheesy but it’s partly based on They Live, a cheesy B-movie cult classic, so it’s expected.  Besides, who really plays a DMC game for a deep story?  I do think the ending of the story is a bit rushed though.

I got it for half off thanks to an X-mas gift card and I’d honestly say $30 is probably about the right price for this game.  Unless you just really want to have it now, I’d say wait and get it at half off or so.  But yeah, I’d recommend it.  It’s fun and I didn’t feel bad about wasting those 10 or so hours playing it.  With the Vergil story add-on DLC, the Bloody Palace DLC, and a new costume pack  (including a Classic Dante look) all coming around the corner, it doesn’t seem like I’ll be putting DmC on a shelf and out of the way any time soon.

Just for fun, here’s a few of my favorites (some spoilers below the cut, don’t read these unless you’ve beaten the game or don’t mind some spoilers):
