Sunset on Babylon

The glorious shot of Babylon from the opening cinematic in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. Done by Raphael Lacoste and in hi–res, I now have this beautiful picture as my desktop wallpaper!

American Prophets and the Efficacy of Prayer

One last word about religion, I believe, no, i KNOW god and heaven and hell exists, its in the Bible, plus my country, United States, was mostly formed on account of prayer and half of the wars we won were because people prayed. For example, in the battle right before Gettysburg, Civil War, we were losing, then we ran out of ammo, Lincoln had everyone kneel in prayer to God that we might win and then a man riding a White Horse in a Revolutionary War attire jumps out of nowhere and starts riding ahead of all the battle lines, taking the fire from the southern america army because he could not be hit in battle. (That man fits the description of George Washington, our first president, and a very holy man, the Civil War was far ahead of his time so how could he be there?)

Well, i have played all 3 PoPs and can say that i preferred the two thrones the most, as it had devious new additions to the platforming. Sands of Time was great too, and takes second place. i was disappointed in warrior within, because of the lack of innovation and really lame combat( comparing to dmc3/onimusha). i also didnt like the music in warrior within, but the environemnts were OK. the other 2 PoPs were much much better.
