anything that has nothing to do with games, this shouldn’t be used often, try and keep it game related.

Archived!

Just a little update on some house-cleaning:  Most everything from last year and earlier dating back to 2009 has been archived, meaning it isn’t accessible from the main feed here on the frontpage, but don’t fret because it’s all still accessible from the “Browse Posts” menu up above then down to the “Archive” option.  Boom.  All the old shit from 2009-2014 (we don’t speak of 2015, it never happened… Shhh.)

Spider-Tank!

While Watch_Dogs may have its faults and doesn’t  quite live up to its hype, it’s still a damn fun game.  One of the most fun parts about it are its quirky side-missions and the “Virtual Trip” games which are… just… ridiculous.  One of which, and my person favorite is the Spider-Tank.  Yeah, you read that right.  A giant Spider-shaped TANK that you destroy shit with.

I recorded a full playthrough with a maxed out ST.  ENJOY!

IHMC Server Walk-a-bout

Hello all again.  So, this isn’t anything really..  but since the server is coming down I figured I would do a little walk around of the everything that every has built over the course of the server being online.  Just a little memento and to show off what everything looks like with some sweet shaders running too.  Everything is pretty, isn’t it?

I apologize for some weird loading problems, those are not on the server and were something having to do with my run around, a restart of the program fixed it but since I was recording I couldn’t really just stop and start again.

Game Over: Game Art

GO_072So, I’ve always been a fan of well done Game based art such as Oil-paintings and the likes as long as they are tasteful and have a deeper context or something clever and quirky about them. Several pieces over over at Giant Robot are on Expo right now, from June 2 to the 27th in LA. The site has all the pieces (I believe) up on their website with prices. I would love some of these, but since I’m cheap, I have to settle for copy and pasting them.

Just a precaution, some of the paintings do depicted nudity. You’ve been warned.

Link to Art on Display. Game Over

Don’t Call it a comeback…

I know. If there is anybody out there that still comes to the site from time to time, you’ve seen that it hasn’t been updated in a while. like, over a month now.

Well, I’ve been dealing with some personal things and just lost much of my drive to write anything about games or tech in general. Off and on I have been feeling a little bit like my self again and am hoping to get back into the full swing of things here soon. Might be changing up my “work” environment. hoping that switch will boost my drive as well. I have several games that have come out that I haven’t even thought about playing, letting along playing all the ones I have from GameFly or have purchased and haven’t even opened. Yeah, that is how bad it’s gotten. It isn’t that I just don’t want to type anymore, it’s that I haven’t really been into much gaming lately. Even my much frequented site on GameAnswers.com has gone stagnant, I have only logged into my account once in the past month and a half.

But, Again, I have been feeling a little better, off and on. And I am hoping to have some footage and maybe something from W00tStock in the coming months.

Adventures in Wal-Mart

image374458803.jpgAs some of you may know. Last Saturday, Wal-mart had one of 3 “Pre-Black Friday” Sales. Something they are doing to ease the rush of the actual Black Friday (Nov.27th). This sale had a nice selection of items. A decent laptop for 259. A couple TV’s for nearly half off. One of these items was an xBox360 Arcade edition of $199. But with a $100 dollar gift card. That’s basically a $99 dollar 360! Not bad at all!

L0pht making a come back?

While not really gaming news, this is good news to most of us who are rooted into some of the darker aspects of computing and the internet…….. After nearly 10 years of inactivity and seperation, L0pht is making a comeback of sorts. If you are saying “WTF is L0pht?” then it probably won’t be worth reading for you.

L0pht started as a group of guys hanging out in a loft in Boston, and quickly became one of the most known hacking groups of the mid 90’s to early 00’s. You may recall their testimony to the US Congress…….you know, the one where they said if they wanted it would only take 30 mins to disable the internet? Yeah, thats my kind of people. These are also the guy that gave us L0phtCrack. One of the most widely used password “auditing” tools to ever hit your PC. While the tool (as many security auditing tools) was ment to help increase your computer security, there were many of us that used it in just the opposite way. Anyway, these guys wanted to help computer security while we ushered technology into our lives, helping us to become the fat, lazy, fucktards that we are today. So next time you are sitting there making your Sim’s do weird shit that you don’t have the balls to do yourself, or telling off your boss in Second Life, or attempting to educate yourself with some stupid IT bootcamp in an attempt to cheat the system by only learning the answers, remember these guys. They were out to make the internet and personal computing safer for you, while adding more tools to my arsenal so I could delete your stupid Sims town, delete your Second Life account, and read your emails.

I wont steal their thunder, so head over to http://www.l0pht.com and read for yourself.
