Mika Mobile has released a trailer on Youtube for it's upcoming iPhone game OMG Pirates! From the trailer though, it looks to be a pretty one sided affair, as the entire trailer features a Ninja whacking Pirates all over the place! Apple has yet to approve the game though, but when it does, the game will be available Apples online store.
I am usually very hesitant about any new TV show, but I can't pass this one up, it's about me favorite subject! Most of these network shows are written more for ratings than to actually tell a story, and most of the time the story they are telling is just a rehash of a an old movie or just a plain ripoff of Treasure Island. I had high hopes for Crusoe on NBC last year ...but that one ended up laying an egg too. It was more like POTC meets the Swiss Family Robinson in my opinion! But I will probably give this one a chance if it ever makes it to production, read on for more!
I ran across this site this morning - it provides a visual reference for those wondering where exactly all the pirate attacks are taking place, and also lists suspected attacks as well as reports of suspicious vessels.
The site also hosts information for the years back to and including 2005, allowing users to see changes in locales and the frequency of incidents around the globe, thanks to maps from Google.
This has nothing to do with pirates, at least I hope it doesn't! Every time I see a story like this, it just boggles my mind that any parent would let a child even attempt something like this. In my opinion, regardless of sailing experience or skills, there is no way a 16 year old is mentally or physically ready for a feat like this.
