World Star Wrestling Bio

Hi, my name is Quadree Breeland, I am 21, and I have a passion for Pro Wrestling. I started watching WWE around 2003-2005 and stopped watching when The Rock left the company. He was my favorite wrestler and when he left, I didn’t think there was a reason to watch WWE anymore. Then, around 2010, I started watching WWE again because of two wrestlers. John Cena and CM Punk. At that time, CM Punk was given a major rise as a WWE Superstar due to his Straight Edge Society. I was so adamant on staying away from Pro Wrestling, but I think being a fan has always been apart of me and I, myself, needed a push to watch again. After that, I couldn’t stop watching Pro Wrestling. I even educating myself about the years I missed in wrestling, going on forums, playing the recent games, subscribing to wrestling channels on YouTube, watching PPVs, etc. In pro wrestling, I love the moves, announcers, managers, the story told by the wrestlers’ sweat, blood, and tears. I am a creative guy and I would like to thank Johnny Glitter and his father for choosing me to be apart of this amazing company. I started watching Pro Wrestling in my bedroom as a middle school student and now, I’m finally apart of an amazing company with so much respect and history and it doesn’t feel real.

Rainbow Six: Patriots Starting Over STILL in Development

 

RAINBOW SIX STARTING OVER(But Still in Development)

 

Rainbow Six Patriots is the 18th installment of the long running Tom Clancy Rainbow Six Series. Patriots was first revealed in November 2011 with a planned 2013 release, but there were problems with production and current gen consoles couldn’t handle Rainbow Six Patriots and wasn’t “good enough”, said Ubisoft North America President Laurent Detoc.

Laurent Detoc stated “We had a core team. They had a good vision. They got started, and then the game wasn’t working. So they had to start again,” Detoc said. “There’s an editorial group in Ubisoft, a big group, very influential. If the game is not good enough, they say it’s not good enough. Most of the time, the team will say, ‘yeah, I know.’ But sometimes they want to continue in a direction where you say, ‘no, it’s not going to work.’

Detoc also stated “Rainbow had to be remade,” he added. “Now they’re going to have the benefit of the new consoles, if and when it comes out. It’s one of those examples where you try, it doesn’t work, you try again. If it doesn’t work, we’re not going to bring it to you.”

Rainbow Six Patriots is set in the not too distant future and in New York City, Team Patriots is called in to deal with a terrorist group known as the True Patriots, hence the name Rainbow Six Patriots. The terrorists are fashioning themselves as a populist militia group. They took initiative to be the judge, jury, and executioner of the victims during the Wall Street decay. The new leader of Rainbow Six, James Wolfe is tasked to diffuse of the situation. He believes that ethics aren’t needed with dealing with the True Patriots. As the leader, Wolfe and his team must stop the True Patriots at all costs, even at the cost of their morality.

Rainbow Six Patriots is currently in development and is slated for a 2014-2015 release on next gen consoles(Xbox One, PS4, and PC) instead of current gen(Xbox 360/PS4) for the definitive Rainbow Six experience. It is currently being developed by Ubisoft Montreal with assistance from Ubisoft Toronto and Red Storm.
